Do one run against hedge, turn round overlapping by half width, your first tramline will be on run no 3 after the hedge run which will be 12 metres from hedge, after the first tramline you will be tramlining every 6th run.

yea both wheels together.so to start with 4m double drill half and that will bring me right ?. Been trying to explain this to my dad and he can’t see it .
Drill first run next to hedge, turn around and run centre of tractor up the edge of previous run, 3rd run as normal using markers, 4th run put tramline in and from then on just follow the markers.

No not my idea of working. I was on 20m skipped 24 and bought a 28m sprayer I’m not bright enough for all that half width stuff
We are on 20 m. That’s what I want to go to really 28 m . Everyone keeps telling me 24 m for the spares , contractor if you brake down and so on-and we really like the case we brought think we going to have another

But if you're getting short of seed at the end you can put tramline in on 3rd 4m run and run sprayer inside wheel in outside tramline. ;)
Just jumped from 20m to 24m here.....

I’ve had a 28m since 2013 and not broken down yet or needed any spares that arnt the same as other sizes. My neighbor has bought one now aswell. There’s plenty of 30m about now to fit a 6m drill wouldn’t think it would be hard to turn 2 nozzles each side off

I assume you have a trailed sprayer.we grow potatoes and aim not sure how a trailed would be on the headlands at getting in and out of the rows without making a mess.

Just move the tramline shutoff to 36 inches from 1 side of the drill
Drill 2 normal runs then switch the tramline on on the inside of field on run 3
Run 4 drill in opposite direction for the other half of the tramline
Or just drill 1 tramline with an extra couple of tramliner solenoids at the right width. Thinking out loud.

AHDB has announced yesterday it is winding down significant activities on behalf of the horticulture and potatoes sectors.
