20 to 30 years ago we never had this problem, every year now I seem to get several ton that lumps together in the bag, and I do drop the bags on their side to break the lumps which does help but some are to bad and this happens.IMG_20210327_122321_1.jpgIMG_20210327_121448_4.jpg

I’m not sure that’s true 😉 but “I understand” 😉😉 they are very professional
In sorting problems 👍
Well I'm still waiting for agreed compo for crap they sent me 4 years ago. Not just lumps, but the entire 600kg bag was one big lump. Not even severe bashing with a telehandler bucket could sort it.
Thought about using them in gateways for caravan dweller deterrents. :ROFLMAO:

In all fairness they did cross my palm with a little silver but I was more looking for assurances it wouldn’t happen again!
That's my point, I had a bit of compensation a few years back, I just want fert that will flow. One lorry driver told me he went to the docks to collect a load, apparently the stuff had been there unloaded and left out side for a week in the rain. I know it's packed in plastic but can't do it any good.

High sulphur blend? Lumpy bags and poor spread pattern was the main reason I went to compounds. Up to now not had any problems and much easier to get the pattern bang on so I don’t mind paying a little extra.

Origin prilled N.

Either lumpy or slush puppy.

only been on farm for 6 weeks.
When I was shopping round for fert at the end of December I had heard a rumour that Origin where having trouble with there plant producing N. I took it with a pinch of salt as the merchant was selling a different brand but obviously there was some truth in it!

Mine are on pallets.

I stopped trading with Origin a while back due to their recruitment of a particular individual.

Coincidentally, I've never had lumpy fert since.

Claas has taken a minority shareholding in the Dutch autonomous tractor startup company, AgXeed B.V.

The new company has developed a tractor designed to be autonomous from the ground up, rather than try to adapt existing machines, or create smaller robots dedicated to a limited range of tasks.

AgXeed’s pilot machine is a diesel hybrid powered unit on tracks which uses a suite of software which, the company claims, is easily scalable.

Like many small technology start-ups seeking to gain a foothold in the machinery market, the company also points to the product as being part of a larger system rather than just another way of performing standard tasks
