    The war in Ukraine...

    Horrible thread title to start, ridiculous really, totally unnecessary; but Putin has done it... it seems crazy. :( I think we - Nato / the West / Democracies - should arm and finance Ukraine. I think we should have a zero tolerance of infringement of NATO airspace and territory. And I think...

    Straw rake or Alternative

    For those using Claydon drill what do you use for stubble management. I know they recommend a straw rake, but would using a cambridge roller with paddles/or even tines give the required chit/slug egg removal/straw spread?

    Turnips with no sprays ab 13

    Got the chance of putting in some Ab13 turnips to fatten lambs. The only worry is it says no sprays and with flea beatle it would be a worry.

    I’m thinking about applying mixed red and white clover seeds on some of our land to hopefully increase the quality of the crop and also to fixate nitrogen. I was hoping to just spread 2kg of seed per acre then Harrow and roll it. What is the best way to spread the seeds? Do people use...

    Is anyone still buying side by side 12 bores ?

    My dad has a side by side 12 bore that he bought back in the 80’s, it’s been in a sleeve in the gun cabinet ever since and never had a cartridge through it. He seems to think it ought to be worth a bob or two, I think he might be disappointed 🙄
