'With pairs of wheels running in the same tracks front and rear, the unit can effectively straddle the rows of crop, enabling it to plant seed into flat beds and return subsequently to weed between the seedlings without running any crop down'.
Last minute addition to LAMMA line-up – the HE-VA Grass-Combi
'Designed to be a true multi-tasker, with its combination of levelling board, heavy duty spring tines, seeder unit and the option of towing a roller, the new harrow is capable of rejuvenating grassland as well as acting as a stubble harrow and cover-crop establishment tool.'
Tips for Applying Avadex when Drilling
"The benefit of applying Avadex with a drill-mounted applicator are that a farmer is guaranteed to have a robust start to their herbicide programme in case the weather changes... and it also saves the cost of an additional pass to apply Avadex", says Hank King, Business Manager at Gowan UK and Ireland.
Making easier work of establishment
"We also specified the additional 120-litre 'Pro Hopper' up front for companion crop or slug pellet application. With the combination of all three compartments we can, for example, put down OSR, a buckwheat companion crop and kickstart fertiliser in the same pass, with the coulters configured to plant two buckwheat rows between each OSR row", says farmer Peter Deeley.
