    Yes I did, not a problem, it was well dry though.
    In fact I don’t think I ever bunged it up once in 1500ha of drilling various crops chopped.

    Actually the only time I had a slight problem was in damp pea haulm and the wheels kept sledging, but went back a few days later and went fine.

    Excellent, that will save a job and a load of wheelings, plus no smoke to be reported to the fire brigade

    It was winter beans last year, following with Linseed to hit the bg again.
    It was scratched very, very shallow several times in the autumn to encourage bg.
    Planned to be scratched early March, but due to weather and an operation I never managed it.
    It had set like concrete this spring, I'm very happy so far.
    Centurion max before very long, although with this rain we're getting this week it could stimulate more bg so not rushing to do it.

    Yes, my linseed has just about met in the rows and todays rain should be pushing it along. So I now have to decide if its time for the BLW control or the Cmax. Im thinking the blackgrass while it is small is the one to hit, as we can usually bosh the BLWs even when a bit larger.

    The weaving gd drill had a good write up in farmers guide. @Right-arm fast
     
  10. Impressed with your linseed. We had an almost complete failure with linseed last year. Drilled too early and too deep I think. Loads of slugs in the slot as well.

    How’s it yielding. Mine looked a good even crop but capsules small with very little in them. Another disappointment of 2018.

    Looks to be yielding pretty well.


    Got some unthrashed pods in the sample I can't get rid of.
    Had a round hole sieve for the old combine which worked fantastically for linseed.
