Beet drilling

Started drilling today beet at Westwick Park. 
Our new Horsch drill in action, 12 row at 50 cm. Can be used for drilling direct, maize  sorghum and mustard. Lovely to have the challengers out cultivating with the 12 metre Dalbo. Two passes and we have nice sugar beet seedbeds. 

Peas and rolling

Peas are going in well and the rolls are chasing up behind.
