slot closing very well really considering less than ideal conditions

Hire 6930 has gone back now so using our only tractor – plenty of power not that it’s needed but just looking at fuel use still only 3.5l/ha being used despite this obscene use of HP ! We have removed all weight from the tractor getting it down to just under 11t allowing the Michelins to be run at 6psi – i’t not ideal though and the tractor is a hang over from our old mintill system that will hopefully be swapped for something lighter, cheaper and lower powered for next year

It will get 3l/ha of glyphosate within the next 7 days – hopefully slugs will be less of an issue here after wheat rather than the OSR – there are some sticky headlands that might not look so pretty but I think with 30% of our wheat still to get in we have to push things a little now
