1. Farmers, growers, processors and industry representatives are being asked for their views from 31 August for 10 weeks on the role of the Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board (AHDB).

    The AHDB is a UK statutory levy board, funded by farmers, growers and others in the supply chain. As we leave the EU, there is an opportunity to ensure that the sectors that the AHDB covers are as competitive as possible. This review will look at the AHDB’s purpose and priorities, its strengths and where improvements need to be made.

    This is a joint 10-week exercise covering England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. The request for views will close on 9 November.

    This would significantly reduce the slot closing ability of the drill

  5. Millions upon Millions of acres can't be wrong.

    Its drawback is probably it doesn't like a huge amount of chopped straw but beyond that its about the best there is for no till

    Haven't found a way of measuring air pressure in the lines yet been reducing fan speed and have 33mph coming out of the tubes no blockages 186kg/ha at 14kph drill speed, thinking blockage monitors might be the way to set this at the optimum level, reducing fan speed by 500rpm has improved the percentage of seed firmed in considerably.

  10. Most airseeders I've ever used over the last 30 years or so have always had a pressure gauge ( low pressure, either "inches of mercury" or in KPa ) or a display on the controller . . .

    Pressure taken at fan outlet or manifold

  11. Thats a good idea similar to a sprayer pressure gauge gives spray pressure
