420 acres of Controlled traffic sugar beet.
We have topdowned, subsoiled at 5.95 metres. Left over winter and spring cultivated with the 11.9 metre Dalbo. Ed Banks has come in and drilled on RTK at 5.95 metres, 12 rows at 49.5 cm spacings. We aim to harvest with the a 6 row at 2.97 metres, trailers to work at 2.97 metres on the previous pass.
After 25 years which 16 years spent with us and 10 of those as the main machine we say good bye to our JCB 525 67. As a young buck fresh out of college It was the first machine I bought for the farm in 1998. Sad to see it leave for its retirement job with my cousin mucking out horses.
Spring Drilling is underway for spring peas. Prophet variety for human consumption. Alexandre is using the Horsch 6 metre powerharrow combination with the John Deere 8345rt.
