Tyres walls. Silo

Anyone using truck tyre walls to cover their silos. Are they any good. I cover with lorry tyres but they are hard to work with and slow. Can your own supply of tyres be made into tyre walls.are they heavy enough

Moved from car tyres to lorry walls this year.. early days as only covered one pit, initial thoughts are much easier to store, easier to handle, cleaner, just as good weight. I’d keep some full tyres for the front of the put perhaps, but can’t believe we used car tyres for so long when these were available!

We got rid of all our tyres last year. Take a tonne of car tyres in and pay £100 and you get 4 bundles of sidewalls ‘free’

if they pick up the car tyres they charge £1 per tyre rather than a tonnage rate
So you effectively pay under a quid a tyre wall and get rid of your tyres foc ?

Now charging £30/bundle. Even if you take in tyres. Get smaller ones free but I’m not convinced they’re heavy enough.

I’m very jealous of you guys able to use the semi sidewalks. We generally cover 13-16000 tons(wet) of silage tire to tire. Everyone really complains and a couple of us end up doing a significant amount of the throwing. 80ft wide pits take some tossing. Sidewalls would improve life

Early moves to target wild oats

  • 692

Growers and agronomists now face the dilemma of an early application to remove competition from emerged wild oats, or holding off to allow more weeds to germinate.

Syngenta grassweeds technical manager, Georgina Wood, urges Axial Pro treatment as soon as conditions allow, once weeds are actively growing.

“That offers the chance to control wild oats more cost effectively at lower rates, whilst there is still the flexibility to tailor application rates up to 0.82 l/ha for larger or over wintered weeds and difficult situations.

“The variability of crops and situations this season means decisions for appropriate Axial Pro rates and application techniques will need to be made on a field-by-field basis,” she advised.
