Riding with the Cross Slot

In the cab with the Cross Slot

Our maximum speed for this set up is about this mark 13.4 km/hr. We could get a larger tractor with more horsepower but we're happy with how this is going.

This computer shows the hydraulic pressure on the openers of the cross slot


 Disc's in ground

Slower pace - 9.3 km/hr

GM Crops - Explain to me the Peacharine?

I realise a scientist would explain a definitive difference between GM Crops and the humble Peacharine, but as a consumer, I'm sorry, but I don't see the difference?

Peach + Nectarine = Peacharine. 

Nature (or God, whichever u subscribe to), did not make the Peacharine, humans did. And how long have we been eating them, I have no idea, it would be years and years. 

I really can't understand the hysteria by the anti GM protesters.  

I'm not saying we barrel in to GM crops all guns blazing, but the choice should be there, we should always investigate the advantages and disadvantages in a rational manner.

We're told to believe the scientists when it comes to Climate Change, but not on the issue of GM? How convenient!
