Our new farm has had some new land drainage to modernise the drainage for the next generation. An extensive plastic drains and gravel tops have been installed. The big field is going into sugar beet for the first time in its life. Drainage was carried out using a large trenching machine and gravel cart, natural springs in sand pockets where found. Hoping the drainage will last another 3 generations.
We have a demo set of 24 metre dal bo rolls to try. Impressive rolls and unfolds quickly at 7 minutes to work position. Folds into a trailer position for road transport.
The fight gets black grass on the winter drilled cereal land we are applying avadex at 36 metre spreading with wide tyres fitted to minimise the impact of the machinery on the soil.
Winter barley, winter wheat, winter beans drilled and pre ems done. Avadexing behind the rolls.
Fendt 939, 390 hp with wide 900 tyres and tyre inflation technology for protecting soils. This tractor has replaced 2 tractors so it can do a large and small tractor work. We are pleased with the tractor and purchased from chandlers.
