Hello, I'm wondering if a mf 30 with discs would drill spring barley directly into sprayed off barley stubble? Just a thought as we are stoney ground and hard to plough.
Thanks

Nope unless it's very light land. I have new disks on mine and wound her up to full pressure to drill some belepi a couple of weeks ago into some failed sky fall on heavy land and have struggled to get over 15mm consistently and there was quite a bit of tilth there to bury it. It's coming ok but they need a bit of tilth there in my experience.

Sometimes the discs will struggle to bury seed in wheel tracks if eradicators aren't set right in tilled soil so it would be no good as direct drill that's what they built the 130 for .

Like hens teeth nowadays!!
You may find a bettinson or a moore.
There is a moore on eBay £4500
There was also a 3m Moore for sale on mvf last news letter don't no what reason.it was for sale . what's needed is a modern drill for modest acreage users.

Keep looking, I found the moore here listed under the conventional drills on agriaffares. It cost less than 2 grand for a 1997 unidrill 3 years ago, but was rather tired and I spent more than it cost on new parts refurbishing it to good order, rather than just get it working again.

GROWTH HABIT

• Quick early development with erect growth habit
• Fast to reach GS30
• Later maturing, allowing more time to build yield SY INSITOR is a taller variety (with no PGR). However, it responds well to PGR applications to reduce height and lodging risk.

DID YOU KNOW?

SY INSITOR produces large numbers of erect tillers. It has good tiller survival over winter and can carry these through the season to deliver outstanding yields. Its early development and speed to GS30 means nitrogen timing is key to feed the rapid early growth.

DISEASE

• Excellent resistance to major diseases
• Septoria tritici = 6.6
• Yellow rust = 7
