Many thanks to all of you that came to see us at the Sumo stand at Cereals, we've had a busy few days and a massive amount of interest in our new products including the new DD, so thank you to all those that took the time to have a look, and for the hundreds of enquiries we received for it, and all of our other range of equipment.
From my point of view it was great to get opinions and feed back on the new DD which is always hugely important to us, and to see so much interest in what we are trying to achieve with it. The working demo plots worked well in showing off the DD and DTS, and I was pleased that the 'drilling' of the wood pellets was a success as it gave you a good idea of seed placement in real time conditions. I know the ground was not exactly ideal with it being very light and dry, but I think drilling an area and leaving it for people to have a scratch about behind the drilling was favourable to turning our demo plot into some kind of dessert storm recreation!
Still not sure about the sowing rate on wood pellets though. Anyone?!

Although we now have a lot of DD demo enquiries to work through this Autumn, we will have our 6m DD for the North and East and also @Johndeere will have a 6m DD for the South and South West, so there is still a good opportunity to see these drills working on your farm. We will also be putting the 3m into the ground after this summer's show season, so please get in touch if you wish to see any of these machines working by either contacting us at [email protected] or through myself or @Johndeere.
I would especially be interested in anyone with green cover/cover crops we could have a go in please.
Also a big thank you to Scrutons and Louth Tractors for the lend of the demo tractors and to Dave Franciosy for his massive selfie stick!!
