Further evidence that applying fertiliser in bands in line with oilseed rape seed will boost yields has been demonstrated following analysis of crop performance data at Masstock’s SMART farm at Lincoln. Trial plots fertilised in bands using OPICO’s Ferticast produced yields 4.1% higher than plots where the granular fertiliser had been broadcast.
After several years of trial and error, growers are successfully establishing OSR using min-till methods –– on both light and heavy land. CPM visits two growers in contrasting situations
Opico is now offering its 2.5t front linkage and pto kits for fitting Kubota’s M128 models. The optional pto comes with an electro-hydraulic soft start clutch to prevent snatching when engaged.
OPICO has further expanded it range of tailor-made front-linkages for kubota tractors with a 1.5 ton capacity unit for the Kubota M5740 series. an eccentric pin design gives a choice of three link arm working positions, fixed, semi and fully-floating, and a vertical fold system tacks the arms clse into the tractor.
