    Case MX Thermostart pipe

    I'm getting a bit fed up with the quality of these damned things, original one did 15 years, since then they seem to do around 12 months. The latest one split this afternoon, spraying diesel all over the turbo and exhaust manifold, has anyone got a workaround or delete that they have used?

    New grain silo build.

    It occurred to me that I should stop sticking pictures of our silo build on @Woldgrain Storage excellent silo thread and start my own! Pics of the build of a 700ton Sukup drying and stirring bin to feed our poultry feed mill. Stirrers will be used to blend wheat/barley/rye etc together which...

    When to stop spraying due to heat

    As title says, do you stop because of bright sun shine or when it gets too hot ? Reason for asking, today isn’t that hot (21 degrees) but unbroken bright sunshine and tomorrow will be very hot and sunny, just wondering what people’s thoughts are.

    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.

    Poppies coming in Spring Linseed

    As per title I have a flush of poppies appearing in my spring linseed. Not yet in bud. The question is what is likely to be the most detrimental to crop yield, leaving it as it is or spraying with something like Metsulfron-methyl?

    Bruchid beetle, is it worth spraying for any more?

    With these 20 degree days are people bothering spraying winter beans anymore for bruchid beetle. Hallmark zeon is the only one left but it may kill more beneficials than beetles.

    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...

    Spraying fungicide and side effects

    Hi all, We're moving onto a small acre of land with a house in the middle, surrounded by fields. Cabbage and wheat I think. Please excuse my uneducated stance and questions but I'm struggling to get info from the local famers. Lived in the area for 17 years but this new house is just outside...

    Just sat pondering the dreaded blackgrass while I enjoy a Saturday morning brew. I have been trying to think of the way the weed grows throughout the season and if it has weakness? 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...

    Best post emergence spray for new grass ley

    As per question really. Have a few docks, thistles, buttercups (seem to be everywhere this year!) and what I think is a little bit of redshank. What's the best clover-safe product to hit them. Ley is approx 5 weeks and not too far off being ready to graze.

    Liquid fert bowser

    Is there any reason we couldn’t secure multiple IBC’s to our bale trailer, plumb together and use these as a bowser? Or any other alternative suitably safe options. Travelling about 4-5 miles

    1m boundry strips

    How do people manage these? Moving from a ploughing to direct drilling establishment method and wish to avoid Brome moving out from the hedges. I have bits in the foot of the hedge which will get left when the combine hits the field but will probably leave a strip undrilled in future years...

    Tyres sizes, 460 or 520 on 155hp

    New tractor time coming up. 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? The plan is to up to 24m...

    Yes it is that time of year again, when this beast of a weed appears above and below the crop! Rogueing is the worst job on the farm in my opinion so it would be useful to hear from some agronomists. We have very low levels on this farm but is it worth rogueing? To be sure of removing all the...
