First Steps with the Claydon Drill

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.
