    How to find work on a farm!

    What’s the best way for a 17yo, with no farming experience, to get part time work on a farm? Should I ring, write a letter, email or physically go and ask? As a farmer, what would you say is the best way?

    How long between applying forefront and topping?

    As per the title, how long do I need to wait after spraying weeds with forefront until I can top the paddock off clean? I don’t want to cut the weed off before the spray has made it to the root. Mainly thistles I’m spraying for.

    Having researched as much information about the flea beetle as possible and been interested in the current crops in the ground, which generally look good. Do you think we’re starting to see more natural predators? I’ve recently read a paper from an Entomologist who suggested it would take 10...

For the life of me I can't think what this weakness might be to even begin to exploit this as a means of control...

Both tractors at the moment are JD6630 on 460’s as both do 18m tramline work, the new one is a 6155m so has a bit more hp but will be used for top dressing, so would we notice traction wise when ploughing with 5 furrows if we stuck with 460’s?
