Chris Eglington: farms 400 hectares near Dereham, Norfolk. With 13 soil types across the farm, predominantly medium to heavy loam, Chris precision drills his OSR at 56cm row width, with seven sub-soiler tines across a 4m working width. He sows just 21 seeds per m2 - the low rate required to get sufficient inter-row plant spacing, with volunteers typically filling in additional plants. While yields have historically been good, he believes his four-year rotation has been too tight and, for the first time this year, has introduced peas to extend the interval between OSR crops.
