these were the best conditions in south yorkshire, this is my neighbors field over the hedge
@RJH that’s a taty field old boy. Like comparing oranges to camels!

There’s a time to park up, you seem to prefer puddling crops in, then recklessly spraying them in stupidly wet conditions, all the while singing the praises of a drill company you apparently have no interest in? Nowt se queer as folk

It cant be a taty field, you cant grow them on really heavy clay!

some fields have 2 varieties in them. to be saved for seed, 6 fields have been drilled with 2 varieties, it shows which variety is best on different soil types, as in two different field not as good to tell,run combined down each side of joining checking yield monitor, eg: gravity v lili , graham v olympus, olympus v lili , gravity v graham, then next year match soil type to variety nothing has beaten graham in 1 st wheat or lili in slugs, slugs love olympus v lili
 
So is that photo lili or gravity or just any random photo from your phone of a bit of wheat ? If its for seed and a trial won't be much cop if you don't know.

Can you not look at your posts before you post them and see that you are typing in capitals?? In general forum speak typing in capitals usually implies your shouting your reply!

I have sandy peat , limestone , red clay, brown clay, sand ,silt, peat , some times 4 of them in same field that's why triton works well, biggest part of the farm is limestone upto 100 ft above sea level and silt over running sand, over solid clay which was old lake bed at 2 ft above sea level, wet wet wet this year,
