The warm weather has certainly been helping the cause and so we are now 71% drilled. Been and seen EF Harrold's quadtrak working with a 10m terra disc on the back pulling up in front of the drill using just 7ltrs/ha today which was doing a great job. Early drilled crops have really started to move with the flower buds now starting to make an appearance and if I was a betting man I would guess that we will see our first flowers about the 30th May. All the organics are now drilled which is a relief. Rain forecast tomorrow morning which will help the last 175ha drilled. All harvesters are fully overhauled and I have just heard the new 1089 is due week commencing the 6th June.
