Ha ha- the outside headland runs were done on that one side leaving the two inside ines as turning area - the set up AB line to drill the middle - once all the short was done, the headland finished. Not the usual method we’d employ but it allowed the drill to carry on until the plough had got some ground over - not wanting to leave anything ploughed but not drilled.How do you vari width the drill.
Was thinking the same re. sending the plough on ahead. Nothing ploughed or drilled here yet. Trouble we have is we just have too much day to day stuff to do for two of us to be stood next the plough and drill and grab every little opportunity!View attachment 837447Got the plough to sneak on abit yesterday just to see if it gazed over a bit , good shower in the night has made it stickier than it looks this morning can’t have the press down on the front it’s burying seed and it’s a robust rate
Like I’ve just said to the drill man when your stopping every other run and checking coulters a it’s probably time to stop and call it a day
View attachment 837448Thinking everything now is going to turn over sh1t so just going to keep ploughing and catch it when we can with the drill
Won’t be the first time and probably won’t be the last
It also shows which farms might be better off growing grass (mine) and a few who will be praying for rain every week from may onwards. Not sure I'd prefer to be drilling now and hoping for unseasonable weather all spring , or where I am sat now waiting for it to dry.What this thread does show is why the plough and powerharrow combination is still very popular , especially on mixed farms growing roots and maize .
I could think of nothing more soul destroying than having to plough ours now, power Harrow it maybe 3 times and it still go in notty. Hopefully the stuff that light tickle would go if we get a dry weekIt also shows which farms might be better off growing grass (mine) and a few who will be praying for rain every week from may onwards.
