Getting crops established using the cheapest method possible is a priority for most farmers. Often direct-drilling is cited as the most economical way forward but it is not without its difficulties.

It’s a big step moving from a conventional establishment system to something that requires such a different approach. Before you even consider it, you are going to want to do your homework pretty carefully.

So we’ve got hold of some direct-drilling experts to give some advice and in this Friday’s Farmers Weekly you will find articles delving to the finer details of how to approach the agronomy, what kit you’ll need and how the figures stack up.

But that’s bound not to cover everything so we want your questions and comments. Challenge the experts and get their feedback by participating in the discussion forums running between 27th Jan –  3rd Feb.
