All drilled up.....

Last week saw the final 100 acres of wheat drilled, mainly ground with high black grass populations and a 3yr Grassley/stubble turnip field. We had to plough 35 acres as the drill just left slots in the turf and the seed was uncovered; so it was out at night ... long hours made more painful by the soul destroying reports of the cricket from Australia!!

Night time ploughing, the first time the plough has seen action this season.

We returned to direct drilling on last years spring bean ground, the seed beds were a bit rough so we will have to be selective on any pre-emergence sprays.

GPS steering seems to be working fine. Fingers crossed it emerges okay!!

Mission accomplished.
