- Greg Wilcox: Northamptonshire contract farming business involves a wide range of establishment techniques and agronomy across 400 hectares of OSR. Strip till, direct drilling and Autocast will all be utilised where appropriate or available for the contract operation. In the right conditions, using the Autocast to spin seed and slug pellets into standing wheat has been extremely effective and kept the costs of production down, but he acknowledges it is not for every situation and there is the severe limitation of not being able to used treated seed.
