It depends on your seed species. Smaller seeds like kale really need warmth to get up and away quickly. I don't plan to do mine until later in May. My plots are still in stubble thanks to a breakdown and the dry weather though I'll rip them up as soon as conditions allow.
Only just noticed it’s got no decals presuming it’s a 1255. I’ve got some do so into similar ground with a weaving gd think I’ve got to make sure I don’t go too deep for small seedThanks! Got some decals to go on it to smarten it up a bit, just added LED lights etc.
The drill is an Erth Agriseeder. Irish drill, mainly for overseeding but works well in a situation like this when the ground is soft. Very simple, Accord metering so can handle cereal seed rates.
Was drilling somewhere a touch under 2 inches. Deep for small seeds I suppose but I see it coming hot and dry. That was as deep as the drill will go. 125mm rows, 35kg/ha plus sunflowers chucked in randomly.
