I’ve done 80 acres on chalk after maize. Not for the 1st time. Need to slow down and if possible drill at an angle to maize rows.

I've direct drilled turnips and osr with a Rapid on clay and chalk soils. I used the system disc a bit where there was a need for some loose soil around the seed. Removing the straw is essential due to hair pinning and beware of slot closure if it is at all wet.

If it is wet and you decide to drill would you roll to help increase slot closure
