Nice picture Colin, the land looks very stony and similar to some I worked in Shetland years ago. Do you know the cereal the air drill is sowing?

Added by John Stott on 18 April 2009.
Sorry John, but I'm not sure. Flora or one of the other regulars may know. There's a lot of barley grown here, though.

Added by Colin on 18 April 2009.
Thanks Colin, I am used to whopping great arable kit as I live in Norfolk and it seems out of place in the far north!

Added by John Stott on 18 April 2009.
Sorry not been on this site in a long time I think I might be correct in saying this is the outfit that made a few mistakes on the Black-Isle whilst sowing barley and was highlighted in a story in the Scottish Farmer.

Welcome back Flora, I thought it didn't look right! Can you enlighten us a bit more then, please?

Added by John Stott on 12 June 2009.
Sorry Flora, but this isn't the tractor and sower that made the mistake whilst sowing barley because the fields this machine sowed are all OK. it was a Simba Horsch and John Deere that made the mistakes and there is photos of the tractor and sower on this website.

I think it was this one - picture #51. Tom Henderson from Poynztfield told me about it. The on-board computer was throwing a wobbly, and this resulted in unsown strips of 4 and 5 metres scattered across the field. I noticed when I took this pic that the tractor was stopping a lot, and having to reverse to repeat areas.

What is the front bit for?

Added by Lewis Eklund on 22 July 2009.
The front tank carries the fertiliser.

Added by Douglas Noble on 22 July 2009.
Is the fertiliser mixed with the seeds and then planted?
