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.

The aim of the projects is to deliver nature recovery at a landscape scale, helping to tackle biodiversity loss, climate change and improve public health and well-being.

All five projects will make a significant contribution towards the national delivery of the international commitment to protect at least 30% of land and...
