    I’ve got 45 ha of linseed that I’m due to drill. Situation is heavy clay that was cultivated in the autumn with a Horsch Terrano and left, therefore it’s not quite level enough to drill into without moving it. The temp is very low and there is no rain forecast for the foreseeable future. I could...

    To cold for liquid fert?

    Our winter crops really need their N2 but the forecast is minus temps for the next 7 days and fairly windy. Today’s weather is suggesting 5 degrees and no wind so it’s good conditions. Shall we do it or will tomorrow’s frosts bite us in the backside?

    Iron affecting ag chems?

    I’ve recently built an iron filter for my pig unit. It’s supposed to increase the efficacy of water medications, as the iron particles bond to the medicine. Does iron cause the same problems with ag chems? If so, I should be using filtered water for spraying. This would involve buying another tank.
