As part of our rotation of fertility building grass leys and cereals, an area of ley is ploughed up every year and planted in the spring with a cash crop to make the most of the soil fertility we have built up over the last 3/4 years. Once the ley is ploughed, it has a pass with a secondary cultivator like this one (pictured) to break up the ground and create a seed bed for a break crop which will be a short term cover of stubble turnips for winter sheep keep and to help the old grass ley to break down before the spring sowing.

However, before cultivating, we made sure the machine would do the best job possible by replacing any worn parts and renewing some of the tines.

We hope to plant the stubble turnips in the coming weeks, weather permitting.
