ALL CROPS BENEFIT
If it can be air sown – it can be Claydon drilled
Our customers have grown both spring and winter varieties including: small seeds; oil seed rape, linseed, mustard, stubble turnips, hemp, grasses, kale, coriander, radish, etc. Medium size seeds; wheat, barley, oats, rye, triticale, sorghum, etc. Large seeds; maize, peas, beans, etc.
“We’ve also direct drilled some wheat after grass, and I have to admit I was a bit concerned about the effect of the organic mat at the bottom of the old ley on the emergence of the crop –– but the plants grew through it without any problems.”
370ha arable, half limestone brash, half clay and high stone content, Lincolnshire.
“We’ve used it on oilseed rape, winter wheats and this spring we’ve also used it on peas, spring beans and a bit of spring barley as well. Peas have gone in well, we got them into moisture; the peas were up within 2 weeks.”
“We’re farming mainly first wheats with herbs and rape and going back to sugarbeet next year. It’s generally medium to light.
We do have some heavy land and that’s drilled better than I’ve ever seen and other people on the farm have said the same.”
720ha, medium to light loam, some heavy land, Suffolk.
