Drilling, Drainage and Dirt

As the drilling season gets into full swing, here's another photo 'snapchat' from Loddington.

Our drilling scenarios are as follows 22 fields direct drilled or one pass strip tillage, 7 fields after a deep tine cultivation, 2 fields disced first and 2 fields after the plough.

Down in the dirt... it might be dry on top but its wet underneath. For all you drainage aficionados

The GWCT's logo is a partridge,
