Combine front tyres are cracking up, still holding air but nervous of another season! Has anyone any experience of any of the cheaper russian / polish tyres advertised on internet?

Many thanks Paul

If the load ratings are the same it should be ok. I put nortec 800s on the tanker and would rate them higher than the alliance that came of which were woeful

They may well be cross ply. These cheep Russian tyres usually have a higher carcass pressure than regular brands. When the tyres have no air in them they still exert a ground pressure this needs to be added to the pressure in the tyre to get a true field ground pressure. They look the part but if you let the pressure down so the tyre can flex they will crack up.


Thanks for replies, thinking I will have to bite the bullet if i cant find any good second hand. Local tyre firm advised against the cheapos, I guess the old adage of you get what you pay for.

Early moves to target wild oats

Growers and agronomists now face the dilemma of an early application to remove competition from emerged wild oats, or holding off to allow more weeds to germinate.

Syngenta grassweeds technical manager, Georgina Wood, urges Axial Pro treatment as soon as conditions allow, once weeds are actively growing.

“That offers the chance to control wild oats more cost effectively at lower rates, whilst there is still the flexibility to tailor application rates up to 0.82 l/ha for larger or over wintered weeds and difficult situations.

“The variability of crops and situations this season means decisions for appropriate Axial Pro rates and application techniques will need to be made on a field-by-field basis,” she advised.
