Our first season with straw rake and Claydon drill (See video below).
This autumn's issues.
- Fantastic weather for harvest, warmer temperatures are just about right for oilseed rape growth.
- Dry September has delayed blackgrass flush and we are still holding our nerve and waiting to drill our final wheat fields.
- Tined cultivations and mole ploughing to remedy last year's soil issues have led to a few cloddy seedbeds
|Cultivations before Claydon have led to a few cloddy seedbeds|
In all fairness to the Claydon it has operated best when used as a direct drill, so lets wait and see what the crop emergence is like.
