220 kg ha looks go but depends on weather, always spring barley early march, never known winter beans eaten off by slugs
I have the same problem with slugs on winter beans. Last time they were a problem was 2012. I will need to redrill 15 acres in a 50 acre field. (If it ever dries up enough!)

I have had a neighbor in with his 4m triton on a 310hp jd.Did a good job on the lighter fields but could not travel on the heavy clay fields .I was drilling with my co4 on the lighter land which did as good job but struggled on the headlands so he had to do them.we will see which looks best when it emerges.I think I will have less slug issues behind the co4.

How big a tractor did you pull the CO with?

headlands not a fair test to rest of field. test side by side in equal soils not compacted head lands and good soil, more slugs on headlands?

Ha no, a guy who actually farms next to mr triton. He said it does what they say it will do in terms of drilling in grim conditions and the crops look okay.
makes good job when other drills fail , no difference in good conditions as all drills make a good job.

triton direct drilled beans moved a lot less soil than your notill beans!!??? look on twitter for vid

well done - I suspect my drill can not cover 500 plus acres a day and the crops it drills won’t yield 15t/ ha or whatever other ridiculous claim you care to make either

can you buy a triton for 4.5k euros and borrow a front hopper form Horsch to get the job done in a shitty season like this ?

our co 6 conversion is still A rubbish cheap drill compared to a 750a or our avatar BTW, I’m not sure I would base the marketing of Triton on comparisons to it !

thats ridiculous triton never claimed this , spot rate's never match field rate's, they claim spot rate's. should put field rate!
don't call when you cannot make better job with your's

Only a small point, most of us wouldn’t be in the position to have Horsch lend us a front hopper. I seem to struggle to get anything on demo nowadays ?
