JD 8300 Ukraine 2006
A few shots of the main work horse on the farm I worked on last summer. Here it pulls the Väderstad drill. The drill is only 4m so it's kind of overpowered. :-)
We sowing canola into winterwheat stubble. RoundUp was applied before harvest and will be sprayed again just before the canola emerges. Worked really well for us.

Another shot. The tractor is kinda far away but I like the clouds. :-)

This field is sown with winterwheat. The stubble was chiseled once and then rolled to preserve moisture.

Last one.

This is the Amazone Centaur. It's only 4m but when you put'er into the ground deep you can stall the tractor easily. It leaves a nice firm and even ground. It's almost impossible to plug it, too. Besides being way too long, it sure is a nice tool.
Please feel free to comment. :-)

Re: JD 8300 Ukraine 2006
great pics, Íf you think that your Rapid is not wide enough and the JD is to strong for it you can put the Rapid seeder after the centaur......both 4m wide.....

Why only single tires? Its a heavy load on the gorund with that tractor.

Hi GTech

this farm also grows malt barley and sugar beets. The yields last year were very bad due to a hard winter. The normal yield for the area would be 2-3t/ha for small grains. Lots of variability because of the climate. The possible yield which could be achieved IMO could be 4-5t/ha as a long term average. But there is lots of fertilizing to be done. New varieties might also be needed. But there is HUGE potential in the country. Lots of fallow ground just sitting there. I personally saw 10000's of hectares just sitting idle. If you're in for a little adventure just go ahead.....

@ Stark1

The centaur was really all the JD asked for. At times even more than that. The Rapid sure is too small for the tractor but there was no other. Cheaper to run one tractor. Usually drilling in the day and then the night shift would be chiseling.
Yeah would love to have duals or large singles on the tractor, especially when in a notill situation. But that's the boss' decision. :-(
