The weather at Hadley has been cold and windy over the past week, which has dried the ground well.
Rightly or wrongly, we have decided to have a go at combination drilling some winter beans into the recently ploughed ground. We made a start on the 10th in slightly frozen ground.
With all the coulter pressure on, our Sulky drill has been doing a good job of placing the seed about 2 to 3 inches deep.
Their was concern over the drills ability to meter the large seed without damaging the peg wheels or the seed, but it has gone very well. Applying a seed rate of 125 Kg/Ha, that equates to 15 seeds per square metre.
