New HORSCH Maestro Drill

Thanks to Claas Eastern and Horsch UK for delivering an installing our new Horsch Maestro 12CV just in time for us to start drilling some maize. This new drill will plant our maize and sunflowers in the Spring, then our OSR in the Autumn. Having the bulk seed hopper should help improve efficiency, by cutting down on time spent filling up. We have ordered this machine with 4 separate hoppers, this will allow us to drill 3 additional products with our seed. When drilling OSR we will be planting seed, with placed fertiliser placed underneath it. The other 2 hoppers will be used for slug pellets and a companion crop, which we will be planting under the new sustainable farm incentive scheme.
