I see Triton are advertising on twitter for drivers to do 24/7 shifts on two 6m drills contracting. By their own reckoning at 18kph they would do 10.8ha/hr and if I remember correctly at £150/ha contracting rate that’s £19440 in a 12hr shift. At this rate they must be paying a hell of a wage to the driver!!!

I'm in - nothing much better to do right now!


I have an FIA international race licence - it might qualify me well for the break neck drilling speed of this high-performance drill !!

I thing wrong with the drill, nothing wrong with amino which has had some interesting results in niab trials. It’s just the wildly exaggerated claims of both companies that annoy me! Apparently a farm nearby has bought a triton so I might get him to plant some stubble that I haven’t managed to get on.
Not sure I've seen those trials from NIAB. The trials I have seen are only interesting in the fact they don't come up with the same results as the manufacturers of those products - funny that.
There's maybe a hint that in the absence of fungicides they may do something. Good for organic farmers then, otherwise fungicides are cheaper and better.

I saw Tim Minchin at the Hammersmith Apollo last night, these songs reminded me of a particular crop supplement and manufacturer...

Maybe it's just me, what with me being a Tim born of the same year, but it struck a chord...
 
Further to my disgrace being blocked by Tryiton I wondered if our friend RJH was also making me an outcast so I had a quick look and a funny but not unexpected thing showed up.
Our friend posts very little on twitter except for praises of Tryiton an Aa. Over 90% of his posts are retweets i.e. a broadcast of someone else's stuff you know the kind of things that you use to pad out a feeder account. 💩
