I am completely new to Direct Drilling, but from what I have seen and read of others experiences I certainly think it could have a place on my mixed farm in Fife. P/harrow combination drilling following plough is very much the normal in this area. I managed to get a demo from Charles Simon from Simtech of their new Grassfarmer drill last summer, to reseed a hilly 20yr old grass ley- result has been reasonably successful. I had hoped to get him back again in the autumn with a 3m T-Sem to drill some OSR or WW but never managed to get him dragged back this far north again. Would be interested to hear experiences of others using the T-Sem drill- good, bad and ugly? I did manage to get a demo of a 3m Sky trailed drill from a local dealer. Drilled WW into OSR stubble on part of a field. Whilst the amount of trash with chopped OSR is pretty heavy, I was a little disappointed with the degree of hair-pinning which certainly prevented some seed from germinating. Slugs were only very slightly worse than the area which had been ploughed and power harrow drilled. Establishments looks quite respectable.
