Does anyone use Hellidor disc's underneath a Lemken Solitare drill? Sometimes a power harrow can be a bit overkill and working ground too much even though I slow rota speed down, plus diesel use.

We have a Solitair 8 drill with the Heliodor. Bought it 2015 with one and a half seasons done after taking on another 400 acres. Have a Maschio/Sulky combi as well. Drill around 1000 acres between them, Heliodor also used on its own to till stubble going into OSR. Good tool, heavy thing to lift with drill so far back, part of the reason for only going with Solitair 8 drill. We plough with press and if using Heliodor run the paddles and rolls over as well. Used on a MF 6480 or 6718 and you know its on the back. Looked at a Horsch Pronto as well but local dealer sourced the Lemken and very happy with it. Have you already got the Solitair drill and power harrow?

Open Letter: Response to Eat Balanced Campaign on Social Media

Letter to the Editor

January 2021

Have you seen the exciting new AHDB ‘We Eat Balanced’ £1.5 million marketing campaign launched on January 4? Anyone watching social media over the past two weeks won’t be surprised its stimulated debate with huge support, outrage, passion and enthusiasm all stirred up.

We want to inject balance into the debate about red meat and dairy – to start having a different national conversation and put farming’s voice out there. The campaign is being run across TV, print and in retail as well as social media, so millions of consumers will have the opportunity to see it. We know 98 per cent of households enjoy meat and dairy but some are looking to reduce, and this is who our campaign speaks to.

Farmers and consumers alike have congratulated us for airing...
