    What are YOU doing to mitigate against Climate Change?

    How much nitrogen fert can I save by using dribble bar?

    As above really. Is there any difference between dribble bar and trailing shoe, ie can I graze it any quicker after trailing shoe than dribble?

    Got a field that’s been grass since I was born that needs a fessed this autumn. Over summer it was sprayed of and redstart rape drilled to give it a break.
