Sprayed off I guess, interesting viewpoint and one which I’m of a similar opinion, if it disturbs the soil, it’s min till, direct drilling for me is non disturbance, others would argue they are drilling into the stubble and it’s direct drilling, everyone seems to have a slightly different view and yes it was wet in comparison to the other event recently.
