Crimper Roller Update

Posted: 27th May 2016

The second episode of the No Till Crimper Roller series follows on from week one where we established the crop was a little to under-developed to crimp yet. We continue to hunt for the ‘Goldilocks Moment’ where the Roller will destroy the crop before it turns to seed. We didn’t kill the rye and vetch in week 1 so will we succeed in week 2?

Join us next week for more, where we will be attaching a drill onto the back of the crimper roller to drill in the next crop as soon as the previous one has been crimped (And hopefully destroyed).

At this stage we are still deciding which crop to drill in, and would love to hear from you which plants you think we should drill in right after the rye/vetch mixture is destroyed.

About Us

It's always been part of our vision to have a farm as an extension of the Cotswold Seeds business and in 2013 we bought Honeydale Farm, one hundred acres in the Cotswolds. During the past couple of years we've been making huge progress on the farm and this blog was set up to share this progress with our friends in the farming world.
