    Whats wrong with this spring Barley?

    Some of the leaves are showing this yellowing, 1st noticed it when I was spraying it with Jaunt on 28th May, it has got slightly worse since then. If it doesn't get any worse from now on it won't affect the yield much but does any one know what has caused it?

    Grain pads - alternatives to concrete?

    With all of our grain going to CS and sheds being used for other purposes, does anyone have any good ideas for a tipping/loading site surface for grain. Concrete is obviously the ideal, but very expensive and this is really only needed for a few weeks of the year. I have seen stabilised concrete...

    Swollen wheat seed

    Drilled some wheat after grass (ploughed, cultipress, drilled with Rapid) and about 30-50% of it hasn’t germinated, it’s just sat there and swollen up, looks like it’s rotting. Any ideas why or what may have caused it?? The headland, which was drilled last, looks a lot better that the middle...

    DD Drill and SLUGS

    I had a demo of an Avatar drill in October. We drilled WW straight into straw removed wheat stubble and then continued onto cultivated ground.

    Is it way too late?

    To drill winter barley now? Long story short (probably won’t be 😂), just finish drilling the the last 50ac block of wheat today and I’m left with a little 5ac field that was supposed to be the last field and destined for a first wheat. Anyway turns out I’m a bag of seed short 🤦🏻‍♂️ don’t...

    Why not broadcast cereals with a fertiliser spreader to save the cost of a drill?

    Now that grain drills are such a horrendous price, I was wondering if anybody of you have broadcast cereal seed on a field or two, as a trial . The work rate using a fert spreader to spread cereal seed at 24mtr or more would be a game changer. If then followed with a 12mtr wide set of heavy drag...

    See Ergot tolerances have been tightened up this harvest does this mean if you can see it on lump of wheat it will need dressing out or is there some guidance say 1 ergot kernel per kg of wheat is too much ? If it has to be gravity separated to remove how much per tonne can you expect to pay ...

    Vaderstad Rapid drill

    Hi I have a 10 yr old Vaderstad Rapid 300 drill. The problem appears to be uneven seed flow. When the seed is coming up and you look across the drilling it appears to be coming up in waves. Definitely not compaction or wheelings. It can be difficult to calibrate accurately and is way out from...
