mcmanigal 103014 103 1670 either
The truck drivers start to whine when the temp hits 100,
but it sure makes the wheat shell out nice. A 1670 hits
the slopes just east of The Dalles. This crop was seeded
no- till into chem fallow with excellent results. :-D
John, always great picture. How much is the % of leveling
when you go downhill? Many times when i go downhill with the
table up the rear axle get up in the air. :-) .I think my
combine is too much light in the rear side. Your combine are
better than mine (about leveling, traction system and
weights balance). I just added some working lights (2 on the
roof, 2 above the wheel) for some night working. Tonight I'm
going to bale the straw with my Fiat 1180 and gallignani
baler. I have increased the tractor width because I must
bale where the combine worked, therefore on slopes. The
picture is of my laverda waiting to work after lunch. Have
you read the mail I send you? Greetings from Italy.
Lorenzo, your photos of agriculture in Tuscany are great! My
girlfriend and I visited Tuscany in September 2003. It was
beautyful. Where is your farm located?
I took some agricultural photos like this Laverda harvesting
Another Tuscany photo.
Why do Italian farmers deep plowing? I have also seen this
in the plains of the river Po (Pianura Padana) and in other
Thanks for the compliments. My farm is 8 kilometers northern
of Siena. Now I'm harvesting "trifoglio alessandrino". Later
I will post the photos. For the next year I'm going to make
some "squaroso", another type of trioglio, and some "erba
medica" (alfa alfa I think :-\ ).
Trifoglio doesn't need plowing, only disking. For wheat,
farro and alfa alfa (-?-) I plow at 40-45 cm deep. The
attached photo is my Nardi 2furrow ploughs. In my soil
(clay) my CAT d5 (see photos on farmphoto) can't pull three
furrow. I don't know the reason but I know that in pianura
Padana only a few people make deep plow. Now the farmer have
more track (especially j.d. 8000/9000) and use subsoiler.
