not a direct drill, but can be used on mintill or ploughed and pressed land. Heavy the 3m disc version we had was 2.8t, well made and a good drill which was easy to calibrate and accurate.
Sold as it was just too heavy for our tractor

What size tractor did you run it on as thinking of buying 1?

Had one on demo, did a nice job but just way too heavy for a linkage mounted machine.
Could only cope with about 250kg in the seed hopper with 1100kg on front weight on a JD6630

I have the kr express p/h version.Yes it is very heavy but my Kubota m7 series kvt handles it with consummate ease helped by a 1.8 ton front press. The disc set up is good and easy to sow at depth if required.The only fiddle is changing the metering rollers which can be a pain at times.
Can pop one ton of seed in the hopper and the tractor copes well.The new Amazone combi with similar twin discs(can't remember the model) also looks a pretty impressive machine.

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...
