    JPM low loaders - any good?

    I’m looking at changing in my 26ft bale trailer for a low loader to move swing shovel and telehandler around, as well as moving bales still. Good idea? JPM seem well priced, what’s the verdict on them? I’m not expecting it to be as well made as some of the more expensive trailers but it won’t...

    Don’t forget – peas and beans are legumes

    Written by Richard Halleron from Agriland It’s sometimes easy for any farmer to overlook very basic facts, one being that peas and beans are legumes. The relevance of this last statement is brought into sharp focus given the prospect of many Irish tillage farmers looking towards the...

    Fattening lambs off grass

    Anyone do this on a fairly large scale? Will be for around 2000 lambs. Turnips will be possibly out of the loop. Any pointers for what seed mix to drill after rape either short term or longer term leys. I'm guessing the short term leys I could graze this autumn?

    Novak Djokovic what do we think

    Appears to have been badly handled by Scott Morrison's government. But it looks like Djokovic thinks he is above the law and presumably just made up the positive PCR test. Particularly as he was filmed at various public engagements when he was supposed to have been infectious. :scratchhead:

    Potato cultivations

    Doing a bit of a project on potato cultivations and it would be of great help if you could list the cultivations you do for your potato crop in order and depth you do them. On our light ground we will use a Lemken Karat once or twice to 130mm and then bedform to about 330mm and then destone to...

    How many units of nitrogen for a first wheat thats been after a long term grass ley?

    As above really, just wondering if I can get away without putting as much N on and not detrimentally affecting the yield, it's been grass for 10 years before with regular lashings of slurry etc

    Cocksfoot ley (thinking out loud again)

    So with fert and chem prices where they are I've been thinking of alternative short term leys as an alternative to spring cropping. Thinking a 2 year ley sown by latest mid September. FYM after wheats off, cultivate, leave a couple weeks spray off then seed. Mix would be Cocksfoot Meadow...

    Not dribbling N down the tramlines.

    About 7 or 8 years ago I picked up a leaflet at either Cereals or Lamma (which may or may not have been produced by Omex). It gave the usual reasons why switching to the use of liquid had advantages over the use of solid N, such as no bags to dispose of, accurate dressing up to the outer edge of...

    Newer combine ???

    We have a combine , it’s ready for changing , on market value it’s worth about £100k , my boss thinks selling it and getting a contractor to do the combining is the way to go , I think he is better putting £100k plus trade in to a newer machine , we are farming just over a 1000ac of combinable...
