Hello,
I am considering to buy some machinery. First of all i am from Bulgaria and we have heavy soils with clay and working about 400 ha/1000 acres. Before 1 week i bought lemken rubin 10 4,5 m pulling with john deere 6175m tuned to 205 hp making very nice disking. 1. Question I want to buy 24 m sprayer not shure mounted or trailed. My fields are very close to me and average dimensions are 100-150 acres and some of them are irregular shapes with transmission towers.
2 . Question i have 145 nominal power steyr profi with alot of extras which i am going to use for spraying and want to buy also seed drill 4m
I am between tume nova combi 4m only drill and lemken compact solitair 4m with combination. These will be pulled with steyr 4145 because its alot more confortable and easier to work than john deere
And for 3 question i want to buy spring planter and i think it will be vaderstad tempo 6 or 8 rows 70cm again with steyr with narrow tires.
I have a lot of question but i dont want to open another threads.
I will be very pleased if you help me with your competence
Thank you

Welcome and interesting to hear of your farming in Bulgaria. I have little experience of the machinery that you mention but I would buy a trailed sprayer. Easier to take on and off, much bigger tank capacity and an extra set of wheels to spread weight over.

We are drilling wheat or barley on maize or sunflower fields with 3 times disking maize and 2 times sunflower with making crop rotation every year and plowing around 32 cm wheat for maize and sunflower and preparing 2 times with lemken korund for maize and sunflower.

Will be 145 hp 175hp max powered tractor going to pull 4m combi drill? And do you have any opinion about toselli sprayers?
 
Don't worry about asking lots of questions. Keep it simple and ask one question each time. Don't have Toselli spyayers here but lots of choice in uk for sprayers. Go for trailed over mounted on your acreage. Looks good land and good to have big fields. Average field size here is less than 4ha!

In my region 1 ha cost around 6000 euros. But 70% of the land which i work is with rent for 400 for 1 ha per season.
This year wheat yield was 8500 kg/ha x 140eur/t
Sunflower 3500 kg/ha x 270eur/t
Maize 9900kg/t x 120 eur/t
And the problem is that only few companies can export and they are deciding the prices how do they want. Farm subsidy is 100 euro/ha and i dont have any subsidy for farm equipment, so bank credits with 7 to 12 % interest and so on.
This is why i want opinion from modern farmers like you to make my farm modern sustainable and compatible and save from expense.

Assume 1 euro almost equal £1 here.
Land £20,000/ha to buy. Rents are similar at £400/ha. Wheat normally 9t/ha and £140/t so again similar to you. Subsidies for the moment are higher here at £200/ha. We don't get machinery subsidies. Ammonium nitrate £200/t.
Diesel £0.65/litre. You have more modern machinery than many farmers near here.....
