    Possibly the singular most misguided piece of digital marketing I have ever witnessed!

    I can actually see some sanity in the idea, late drilling with a machine that can clearly cope with wet soil

    But pretending it will make you blackgrass free in 1 year flat and that 2 L of amino A will suddenly start producing world record yields / cure cancer is .... ................ “misguided”

    Got to love the loyalty and enthusiasm of their “customer” on this thread ;-)

    Normally we would moderate but in this case we decided the entertainment value was much higher

    It reminds me very much of a late neighbour of mine who wrote in arable farmer who waxed lyrically like this about his dutzi and if we are all honest it was always the first article we read to see what peter next.

    Perhaps the triton drill will be the same in the 2010’s as the dutzi was in the late 80’s

    Peter Hepworth? As a kid I always looked at his article as it was local.
    And now I do the land work and spraying for his brother.

    Bit of a hero of mine growing up, outspoken, but ahead of his time.
    iirc, always used to plough and cultivate at night so the seagulls/rooks wouldnt eat his worms!

    How dare you mention a plough tool of the devil he hated them nearly as much straw burning (yes it was us the draw burning cowboys who scorched his hedge) but he did have a very nice 5f overum hidden in a shed! Definitely a man ahead of his time with regard to min till etc sadly the myth and the reality were 2 different things when you looked over the hedge at the crops.

    I stand corrected! Didn't care much for his sprayed out hedge bottoms though.

    I demand more updates on this hillarious thread. Been watching it all year, come back, and the comedy dries up.

    I know it's meant to be good in the wet but it seems to be able to conquer even the Marianas trench: _106939095_pix5.jpg

    Perhaps either the crops don't look quite so good, or he's waiting for the record weighbridge yields.

    On the subject of aminoA {terrasorb) i sprayed some for a customer a few weeks ago. It stank.

    A few days later i got a ibc of magnesium sulphate. It smelled and looked exactly the same as terrasorb. Coincidence?

    There are a number of different biostmulant/amino acid products out there. The terrasorb product may well be the same stuff as manganese sulphate, who knows, but the Terrasorb isn't the same product as aminoA Flo which is whats being used in this thread. I've never used any of the above products but we have to make sure we compare apples with apples.

    Terrasorb looks nothing like Mn. And it doesn’t stink. Someone has been done.

    I'll get a picture of can when I'm back filling.

    Was this stuff, terrasorb foliar plus.
