I’m just wondering what the answer is with regard to trying to delay drilling with a 750a on clay for blackgrass purposes. Before I had the 750 I used to have to try to finish drilling wheat with the Claydon drill by 10th October and it was always sticky drilling beans a bit later. To help with blackgrass I am trying to delay and this season I got away with putting the wheat in between 9th and 14th October but even with a dry summer and relatively dry Autumn it is now too sticky on my hanslope clay. We haven’t had any rain for 8 days when we got 15mm but the soil is just not drying now as it stays sticky all day from overnight dew. I have been putting beans in today on a glorious day but the gauge wheels,press wheels, guttlers and drill main wheels are all balls of mud and a lot of the drill wheelings are showing. Basically in a year as dry as this it’s impossible to delay drilling past mid Oct. anyone got any observations or suggestions?
