John Haynes
  • John Haynes: has 300 hectares of oilseed rape among the 1,200ha he manages for MJ & SC Collins based on the Hertfordshire/Essex border. The area is down this year, with the introduction of beans into the rotation, and damage loss from sustained Flea Beetle attacks. In recent seasons establishment has been with a Vaderstad Top Down, allied to a press and rolls to conserve moisture, reduce Flea Beetle damage and to improve herbicide performance. John is now also looking at how the farm’s Horsch Sprinter may be utilised for OSR sowing in some soil conditions. He reports OSR had been the best break crop for the farm, providing they can consistently achieve the yields to justify the forward loading of costs to establish and grow the crop.
