Re: 5525
Why do you have plain rollers? Don't you get problems with the soil getting dried out?

PS: Nice pictures!

Sarge= The tractor has 75 hp, we didn't think it would be necessary to have a cab on this tractor if that's what you mean by cabin and it's a JD 4440 in the background with a 25ft cultivator.

Lennart= We use plain rollers to preserve the moisture and to break up the lumps.

Nice photos :-)

What brand are the rollers Haney?

Flat rollers are very popular here Lennart, especially after drilling peas (some farmers tow the roller directly behind the seed drill, to save another pass over the paddock).

Re: 5525
For me it would make sense to firm the lower soil (under the seed) to help the capillary moisture draft through the soil, and leave the top inch (above the seeds) loose so that this dries out but doesnt draw moisture from the firm subsoil.

Re: 5525
Renze, I think alot of the guys using flat rollers especially in crops like peas are doing it to roll rocks & stones in to the ground, to facilitate easier harvesting.

The fact that rolling also brings moisture to the surface to assist germinating seeds is another bonus :-)

Re: 5525
Regarding the flat rollers we have always heard here in Swden that it is better if the surface is a bit "wavey" like after a cambridge-roller because of that the flat surface dries out too fast. With a heavy cambridge roller you achive both the wavey surface and to press down rocks and stones.
