Re: 8440 and Rabe
Nice pics 4 Crops :-)

Is the spray bar on the front of the Rabe machine?

What will you sow the phacelia with? Who are you growing it for?

As a side note, have you heard anything about the price of borage for this season? I was reading on another forum that demand for borage is slowing in the UK,

Regards,

TC ;-)

Re: 8440 and Rabe
@ TC, Yes I put a boom in front of the discs and have been sowing with Sulky air seeder. Growing for PGG/Wrightson's, Annet Grain & Seed and Canterbury Seeds at contract prices from NZ $3.60 to $ 5.00 kg. As for Borage you are right no demand, one company had been allocated 8 ha but at $7.40 up from $7.00 but too late in the season.

Re: 8440 and Rabe
Ok, thanks for the info. You must be growing a few ha of phacelia then? I saw a crop in NZ when I was there in late Jan, it certainly is an unusual looking crop ;-)

Did you get any pics of the sowing?

Re: 8440 and Rabe
Very interesting 4 Crops :-)

Looks a little like a carrot when it is younger bt as it gets bigger it has a leaf a bit like a bracken fern.

Thanks for sharing them with us ;-)

Regards,

TC :-)
