Drilling white mustard for Coleman’s in Lincolnshire. Last block to drill. Hoping the weather stays with us this week. Plenty of moisture to get it away. When the sun is out it’s a pleasure being in the fields.
We started drilling the sugar beet today with a 24 row beet drill at 50cm. Working in 12 mt CTF. The soil has warmed from the sun last week. We are drilling early sugar beet variety designed for early drilling. Hopefully tomorrow we will be on the heavy land.
Sima the second largest agricultural show in the world is held in Paris. Part of the team came for a study trip to look at new technology. Great time had looking at the machinery and technology with many ideas coming together.
Eight lorries are currently taking sugar beet to Wissington and bring back soil conditioner. The Limex is used in a rotation around the farm to improve phosphate, potash, and ph correction.
Roger Pinner has kindly come and planted a new hedge along Scotland Road and Cherrytrees down Rectory Farm drive. They look super and hopefully in 3 years it will look magnificent with colour in the spring.
Gary very kindly came and filmed us lifting sugar beet and cultivating and drilling behind.
