    Hi
    I'm thinking of strip tilling maize this year with are mzuri drill some of it will be into grass that's been cut and some into stubble. Any advice or tips would be helpful? Thanks

    I think the MGA did some trials on using non precision drills for maize. I'm not a member so can't see their data.

    We trialed ( I say we ,mean where I work) it was an absolute disaster compared to the normal plough cultivate drill scenario.

    Can’t see why it won’t work, seems a waste to plough up a good grass field

    Used a Claydon Hybrid to compare against a one pass cultivator, power harrow then precision drill. Not sure what the yield difference was as it was drilled for a neighbour but the plants looked near enough identical apart from the narrower row spacing.
