I have used ours for OSR, very pleased so far. Nice and simple and not much to worry about. I'd say it's worth spending time setting the seed depth. No individual depth control and tines means there will be some variation in seed placement so be sure to check several rows to get an average and do plenty of tests. Once set up it works well, and if the ground is uneven it moves enough soil to still place the seed properly.
The picture is drilling OSR into fallow. It moves less soil on stubble that still has roots in

What size JD do you run your 3m on? Does it lift it ok?

Ours was the Lamma display drill, one of the very first, used all spring with great success now all sown for autumn into various soil types and conditions without fault. Just very very heavy our John Deere 6195r knows it’s there, pulling it is easy.

Despite an average growing year for most crops, many growers managed to go above and beyond their predicted max yields, with Lincolnshire grower Tim Lamyman taking the top spots for his wheat yields and his world record breaking winter barley yield.
