What's the name of that machine? Looks to be doing a cracking job! Ever tried that on sprayed off grass?
We've used similar this year with 4 x subsoil legs on the front to break up any compaction from outwintering. One pass then drill.

How did did maize go? What machine did you drill it with?
Maize was drilled 4th June and did ok, drilled with vaaderstaad demo drill, later harvested and not as dry as I'd like, if drilled at usual time it would have been similar to other

How soon can you spray grass off after cutting? Was cut last wednesday/Thursday but want to get on with getting the ground prepped for drilling
Thanks
Crack on and do it. I’ve done all ways, before cutting grass and not at all. Happy with not spraying but planning on doing a field this year. That’s really because the plough has new mouldboards and won’t bury great until all the paint is off.
