Pottinger Terrasem

Feb 14, 2020 | 11:36 1 Was at my local farm show yesterday and local dealer had a Terrasem seeder there. Interesting concept to say the least. I honestly can’t see how it wouldn’t work here. He is going to try it out on his land. If it ever gets to where our use of glyphosate is limited by stupid regulations or weed resistance becomes a problem this might be an option. What are you guys thoughts? Reply With Quote

Less chemical if that's what the customers want.... Reply With Quote

    There won't be enough swathers either....

    I do like the comment about discers....they were a scourge....

    I can still see the X in the fields....pig troughs....80 acre humps..... Reply With Quote
