Since 2007 we’ve never looked back, as our journey has continued to today which now includes variable rate seed/fert, autosteer, only a single tractor (CASE IH Puma 165) on 600 front & 650 rears. We would have wider tyres, but still have the 5 furrow Kverneland plough. We are on 28m tramlines and are part of AECS growing green manures, species rich grass margins and cover crops for EFA. We have recently dropped Winter Oil Seed Rape, in favour for winter beans and potatoes, partly due to a knotgrass weed problem where the discs on the OMEGA slice straight through it, so a tine drill is a non-starter for us. The OMEGA has sown EFA cover crops into worked land and straight into stubble as an experiment, we’ll do some trial dig plots to see the mass difference above/below ground in the spring. We are moving to a cover crop overwinter system where we cultivate in the Autumn with cover crops, then will use the turbo disc system to sow spring barley with DAP fertiliser directly into the sheep grazed desiccated cover in the spring. Our 1st winter wheat land follows the potatoes which is levelled with our cultivator and 2nds normally are ploughed then pressed. This year the OMEGA sowed directly into the ploughing with the following wheel cultivation discs set deeper to take out compaction and the “X” disc set up allows the drill to pull straight with no offset on the GPS which means we don’t need to use the side markers; another huge selling point of this drill. The wheat into the bean stubble was sown with the cultivating discs working and the turbo disc to slice through the bean stocks for the 16.70cm wide row spacing seed coulter to slot into, no blockages. We found that the rear pipe for calibration and emptying of the hopper is a real game changer in making the machine user friendly, plus it ticks the boxes from the health and safety point of view!
