It's always fascinating to see how others tackle similar problems to the ones on our farm... great to get that little 'light-bulb moment' when you find something which will work. We've made quite a few useful things from your magazine

Fertiliser spreading - improving accuracy and reducing wastage

Price £9.50

Olympic cycling coach Brailsford examined and corrected all the details affecting his team's performance.  This report does the same for people spreading fertiliser. The age and type of spreader has very little to do with accuracy...  it's all a question of set-up. These tips will save money and help produce an even crop.

Stripes like this not only look bad, they add significantly to costs, whether the area involved is 6 or 600 acres, as in this case. The bad workman will blame his tools, and in this case the spreader has been badly mounted on the tractor.
This report goes through each detail, and makes essential reading for all farmers, especially when fertiliser is £350 a ton. It shows how to mount a fertiliser spreader onto a tractor properly to give an even distribution. Spreading fertiliser on headlands. Checking for vane wear on spreaders.
