    direct drilling photo gallery?

    Would it be good to have a direct drilling photo gallery thread?

    I really find it interesting to see field photos during year.

    Would like to see how sumo/moore versadrill crops getting on. Sumo web site photos are great. Would like to see some spring photos.

    Good idea alwaysraining...
    and here is my first contribution, Solstice direct drilled into oilseed rape residue. The residue was harrowed twice, and the volunteers were sprayed off with 700 grams of Glyphosate the day before drilling (October 10th), slug pellets were applied the day after drilling and the only input since then has been 40kgs/ha of N applied last week...

    Does the cake not have to be incorporated slightly more than just raking?

    Raking kept them happy then v drilled soon after.

    pob would have been ok if we were close behind with drill but did not work out like that.

    Elmsted & Sumo. I reckon after the ripper tynes tram lines will be a PINTA unless they are consolidated prior to getting saturated.

    Sumo, nice to see some good results from your drill. Are you going to produce a 3m version of the drill.

    Some good looking rape here - drilled with 6m Claydon V drill behind an 8530!

    Optic S. Barley, drilled 17 days ago, untreated at 450 viable seeds/m2. Had 300L/Ha of Ammonium Sulphate Liquid (10%N,10%S) mixed with 0.5Kg/Ha of Roundup Max and 250Kg/Ha of 16:16:16 pre sowing. Rolled after sowing. Drilled with Claydon.

    Gerald Winter Oats, drilled late September at the highest rate the Claydon could give us (then), IIRC it was about 350 seeds/m2. Lexus Class and Hallmark Zeon post-em. 3kg/Ha MnSO4 mid March, 300L/Ha of 10N,10S about the same time, N taken up to 120Kg/Ha with AN 6 days ago.
    In one pic you can see small AMG, I hope that is going to be shaded by the Oats but time will tell. The straw was removed from this field and the previous crop was S. Barley.

    Seven weeks seems a long time to battle through to see the sunshine
    Current advice is more inline with waiting until April although I can't say I was aware of it before today
    “It was noticeable that the high plant population from early drilling was especially susceptible to Chocolate Spot, with all the high plant populations adversely affected with a subsequent reduction of yield..” In the spring sown crops, there was no real difference in yield from any drilling date between February and early April, but the yield was higher from greater plant density. These findings are reflected in the PGRO recommendations for spring sowing of winter beans. Where the variety Wizard had been included in spring trials in the past, it has reliably produced a viable crop, although the advice is to progressively increase seed rates as plants will not have the chance to branch out as much as the autumn sown crop. Dr Biddle said that on heavy land the late sown winter beans could equal the yield of a spring bean variety, although on light land it may only achieve 80% of the output.
    “Given the wet soils this season it will be more important to get soil conditions right before planting, rather than worrying too much about the date. Even if that is left through into April, you will at least still get a crop.”
    I guess the seedbed was so good they didn't want to get out of it
    Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go

    Folio gold has been revoked, haven't had a year yet where we could have not sprayed for mildew. No beans this year though so got till next year to sort it out.
    If in doubt get a bigger hammer

    Crop emergence from DTS


    Winter Barley drilled 20-10-12 @ 185kg/ha








    Headlands



    Drilled on the same day, wheat drilled by the farmers own disc drill on the left, DTS on the right. Both sides were drilled onto cultivated ground that had become very sodden, slugs also became a big problem and the field was rolled as soon as condtions allowed.


    Fuel usage for our demo rig which consists of a 6m DTS plus John Deere 7230R has ranged from 8ltrs/ha to 15ltrs/ha depending on drill set up, leg depth etc and soil type. All fuel figures were calculated from the meter of the tank in the yard.
