Out and About with the FG team Wanted: Sugar beet growers According to British Sugar, and following the announcement in July of the contract offer for the 2017–2018 crop (see Farmers Guide August edition), there is now an opportunity for “new growers” to grow the crop. The processor says that existing growers of sugar beet are currently confirming their requirements but that industry expansion in 2017 will mean opportunities for other growers too. Speaking to Farmers Guide, British Sugar agricultural director, Colm McKay said: “We believe there could be market opportunities for us following the removal of quotas in Sept 2017. In addition to our current growers taking on extra tonnage, we are looking for expressions of interest from farmers who currently do not grow beet who would like to in future.” The company lists high crop margins; guaranteed minimum payments; a break crop sown in the spring; comprehensive agronomy support; a flexible harvest and haulage scheme and no capital investment needed as some of the benefits that growers can enjoy by growing the crop next season. Interested farmers should get in touch with British Sugar to speak with one of the company’s crop advisers, it adds.

That’s according to Norfolk-based independent potato adviser and specialist Andy Alexander, who reckons that defects such as growth cracking will also present a challenge to growers this harvest. “We had very cold seedbeds at the start of the season followed by soaring temperatures and an explosion in crop growth. Physically, crops just weren’t able to cope,” commented Andy. He also expects to see high levels of bacterial diseases such as black-leg which will add to the risk when crops are loaded into store – something growers need to pay close attention to, he warned. “If it proves to be a dry lifting autumn, growers need to be aware of excessive bruising when harvesting the crop due to high dry matters,” he said. “Continental growers are experiencing the same challenges so there could also be opportunities,” he added.

With the potato main crop harvest in full swing in East Anglia, the feeling is that average saleable yields could be down due to higher crop wastage and excessive greening after rainfall washed ridges down earlier in the season.

Bernie, a farmer, was in a pub in Shepton Mallet, Somerset one day having lunch, when he noticed his old friend, Big Matthew, who also worked on a local farm. What really caught his attention was that Matthew was wearing an earring through his nose. Bernie knew his old mate to be a very conservative fellow; tough and macho, and he was curious about his sudden change in fashion sense. So he approached Big Matt and gently enquired: “Hey Big Matt, I didn’t know you was into earrings an’ that.” “No big deal, Bernie, it’s only an earring,” Big Matt replied rather sheepishly. Bernie was silent for a few minutes, but then his curiosity got the better of him and he asked: “So Big Matt, ‘ow long have you been wearing one then?” “Ever since my wife found it on the floor of my tractor cab,” Big Matt replied.

Grain & Fertiliser Gossip

by Graham Henderson –

As I write (18th Aug) the grain harvest is virtually over locally and the good news is that grain prices have moved up a bit in value over the past month, mainly due to sterling. Perhaps the most controversial stories recently are, as you might expect, about the future of UK agriculture following Brexit. In my view, sensibly, the Government has announced that payments to farmers will remain in place until 2020. However this has not deterred the promotions of two environmental organisations the Campaign for Protection of Rural England (CPRE) and The National Trust (NT). Both have come out wielding battering rams demanding changes in payments to agriculture from direct farm subsidy payments to environmental support. The CPRE seems to be living in a dream world where to achieve a better environmental countryside with more wild flowers and less reduction in fauna, and especially birds, we just need to have smaller farms, their thinking being that it is the bigger farms that are causing the problem. I would like to remind them that it is trading conditions for produce that are mainly causing the problem and many larger farms do a great deal for the countryside generally including hedges and by creating specific areas for shooting cover. The NT in the form of its director general Dame Helen Ghosh (Currently on a salary of £183,960) has also been babbling on about transforming the countryside by spending more agricultural support money on, “wildflowers, bees and butterflies,” rather than food production. She appears not to know that farm subsidies keep down UK food prices for the benefit of the population, too many of who are on the poverty line. Both of these organisations need to get into the modern world where the reality is that only the value of farmland and the level of subsidy support is currently keeping agriculture afloat.

Grain Gossip The wheat harvest has moved on well in the last weeks and we are getting the message from the south of England and East Anglia that yields are closer to average than winter barleys, and that quality is good. Spot trade for feed wheat today in the East is £118/t ex-farm and moves up £2.00 per month to November. Feed barley is today around £102/t ex-farm and a further £2 for September. These are above prices a month ago. For May 2017 the feed wheat price locally has reached £130/t ex-farm which takes prices to profit making levels at last. These improved price levels are due to both currency and a poor French quality and yield. Milling wheat are between £10–£18 premiums depending on destination. Higher prices are naturally in the north of the country. Last month I spoke about the problems with winter malting barleys having poor bushel weights. These have been discussed over recent weeks and although they are believed to have been due to lack of sunshine and a wet June, I also believe that barley yellow dwarf virus (BYDV) could have been responsible in some crops particularly as I understand that some agronomists recommended

cost savings by omitting the autumn aphicide dressing (Deter). Spring malting barleys, now mostly in the barn, have given fairly good yields but some poor quality crops are suffering deductions from maltsters due to a skinning problem. This can be caused by combine settings and not always avoidable. Maltsters and other intakes are making deductions on more than five per cent skinned. Prices for spring barleys are now reaching £140/t ex farm forward. There is speculation that we may see some quality wheat being exported to France and Germany later in the year due to poor quality harvests in both countries. I rarely talk about oilseed rape and particularly as it has been traded at poor prices over the past few months. However, prices have moved up by £50/t to a base price of £300/t ex-farm due to poor yields. These have been put down to the ban on neonic pesticides earlier in the growing year. With an Australian and Canadian harvest yet to come these prices could move either way.

Fertiliser Fragments I understand that CF Fertilisers has significantly gained early season nitrogen market share with Nitram following its reduced price policy and has fulfilled its sales targets of selling around 100,000 tonnes per month in the early part of the season. This has allowed CF to increase its base price up to £170–£175/t for September movement although I am sure that, if necessary, prices can be below this level. Major exporters to the UK from Poland and Lithuania have made promises to keep regular merchant importers at competitive levels at up to £10 below this. Meanwhile granular urea sits at around £190–£200/t delivered farm which leaves it cheaper per unit than ammonium nitrate but with the UK spring weather ramping up in temperature, there is now a greater risk of losses by volatilisation. Meanwhile further increases in potash prices are being indicated but not yet enforced.

‘Encourage’ your black-grass to grow Growers are in a “bit of a muddle” when it comes to black-grass.

Cover crops are proving to be a useful component in the heavy land battle against resistant black-grass, particularly when grown ahead of direct drilled spring wheat and spring barley. Dominic Kilburn explains. Trials work carried out by Agrovista over the past three years has demonstrated notable improvements in the control of black-grass where cover crops are introduced into the rotation to “encourage” the growth of black-grass. Agrovista technical manager, Mark Hemmant is probably being a little kind when he says that growers are in a “bit of a muddle” when it comes to black-grass. Speaking at the company’s Project Lamport heavy land black-grass trial site near Maidwell in Northamptonshire, he said that despite the fact that growers were struggling to obtain sufficient control of black-grass, they did at least realise that strategies towards its control were going to have to change. “This site was in continuous wheat

Mr Hemmant warned that the worst thing is to assume you are are on top of the situation and then do nothing.


and rape for 10 years and if growers in a similar situation carried on like this, they’d just be growing grass, said Mr Hemmant. “We have to find ways to help them keep farming,” he stressed.

Poor control When the trials began three years ago, black-grass counts on the site numbered 2,000 heads/m2 and a full, robust herbicide programme resulted in only 50 per cent control. “The reality is that you need 98 per cent control of black-grass just to stand still,” he emphasised. “In this type of area with heavy clay soils, growers have to finish sowing their wheat by mid-October otherwise all the crops don’t get drilled, and so delaying drilling isn’t really an option. Ploughing can help black-grass control, but not every year otherwise it brings the buried seeds back up again. “Direct drilling, which offers minimal soil disturbance, should be considered by growers to help reduce black-grass establishing in the crop,” he added. “It’s vital that growers pay attention to detail in everything they do establishing their crops in the battle against black-grass, whether that be the use of cover crops, seedrates, direct drilling, tyre pressures to reduce compaction, or herbicide timings and choice. Realistically though, with a big black-grass germination peak in the autumn and the spring, you have to use spring crops if you want to make

a difference,” he added. While the understanding of cover crops and the benefits they can bring to the rotation is still in its infancy, Mr Hemmant said that the aim at Project Lamport was to investigate those that would have the potential to dry out the soil sufficiently to allow establishment of a spring crop on heavy land by direct drilling, as well as those that ‘encourage’ black-grass to grow at the same time. “Classic cover crops are put in the ground and cover the soil quickly as they establish, but we wanted a cover crop that would be open enough to allow black-grass to come through and grow with the cover crop before both being sprayed off in the spring. Black oats was an obvious choice as it is renowned for growing in colder conditions and is sufficiently open early on, while still having lots of biomass above and below ground,” he explained. “We tried it here, sowing the cover crop in the autumn following wheat and spraying it off in the spring with glyphosate. It died off nicely and exposed the black-grass below which, in turn, was sprayed off prior to drilling spring barley. “It gave us some good black-grass control,” he added. In plot comparisons this season, similar positive control results are being seen with September drilled cover crops of black oats and vetch ahead of direct drilled spring wheat. “We have seen in excess of 99 per cent contol of black-grass using these cultural controls only – producing a similar performance to plots where herbicides were also included in the autumn,” said Mr Hemmant. “Farmers on heavier soils don’t like the thought of spring crops and drilling spring wheat by direct drill but, although the crops can look scruffy in the spring, they look good by the summer. “It’s a mindset change – about trying to get black-grass growing outside of the cash crop when we can. Many farmers don’t want the additional cost of cover crop seed at £30–£40/ha but the alternative is a £180/ha herbicide cost and still no guarantee of black-grass control,” he said. Mr Hemmant advised that in the first few years of direct drilling spring wheat it’s important to create some tilth to help with establishment and use seed rates of 500 seeds/m2 or more. Using less seed, spring wheat

It’s a mindset change – about trying to get black-grass growing outside of the cash crop when we can, said Agrovista technical manager, Mark Hemmant.

doesn’t tiller so well allowing more space for black-grass to fill, he said. “The important lesson is that you must drill the crop parallel to the wheelings of the cover crop for minimal soil disturbance. That said, a crop that establishes well and fills the ground quickly has less black-grass in it even when a field has had more soil disturbance.”

Spring barley Results this season also point to good control of black-grass where autumn sown cover crops are grown ahead of spring barley (following winter wheat). KWS Irina was driled at 450 seeds/m2 in early April following the destruction of the cover crop. “Some growers think that you can’t grow spring barley on heavy soils but we think you can,” continued Mr Hemmant. “The seed rate was a little higher than normal, because of the black-grass, and while spring barley doesn’t give you quite the same price, it does give you a more flexible sowing date and comes to harvest earlier than spring wheat. “A first wheat followed by a cover crop and then spring barley makes for a nice entry for oilseed rape,” he added.

Nutrition Agrovista is also looking at the concept of burning off cover crops in

Arable the late autumn/early winter ahead of drilling spring wheat, rather than waiting until the spring, with the potential benefit of returning nutrients to the soil in readiness for the spring sown crop. “Cover crops are good at capturing nutrients and we suspect that where they are burnt off early, this has mineralised some of the nutrients and returned them to the soil ready for the spring wheat. “Cover crops don’t grow much more beyond December or January, and they’ve done what they needed to do by then, so why not spray them off early?” questioned Mr Hemmant. With all spring sown plots at the trial site receiving 90kg/ha N applied ‘in the row’ with the direct drill, Mr Hemmant said that it’s important for a spring crop to have readily available nitrogen. “I think that growers miss a trick when they don’t do this, however, we’re still learning about the affects of nitrogen in terms of where we put it and when we apply it in relation to black-grass.”

be aware of what black-grass seed remains in the seedbed. Where a plot was left fallow following oilseed rape and then ploughed ahead of spring wheat, we have seen the immediate return of unmanageable levels of black-grass. “We have found that two years of cover crops and direct drilled spring cereals is not enough, and a return to conventional cultivations and drilling in the third year, without a cover crop, meant that we were in a mess again. “Black-grass is a numbers game and it’s very good at filling space. Carrying on as normal with a wheat/ rape/wheat/rape rotation is not an option,” concluded Mr Hemmant. ■

Hybrid rye


K While growing hybrid rye for use in an AD plant isn’t an option for all growers, trials at Maidwell have shown that when drilled at relatively low seed rates (250 seeds/m2) in the winter, hybrid rye can out-compete black-grass in the spring, resulting in lower counts of black-grass underneath the following OSR crop. “Rye can be useful for controlling black-grass and gives a reasonable yield. Then, after harvest, which is usually early July when supplying an AD plant, it leaves several weeks of stale seedbed opportunities before the next crop. Beware of low seed rates on heavy soils, however, and the threat of slugs. As a small seeded crop, it mustn’t be drilled too deep, advised Mr Hemmant.

Early drilling of wheat a “road to nowhere” With autumn establishment upon us, Bayer recently staged a ‘Black-grass Live’ debate to try and flush out some answers to the ever-present problem of the yield-robbing weed. Dominic Kilburn writes. Later drilling of wheat is advised if growers want to see a reduction in blackgrass on their farms.

Cultivation strategies formed a key part of discussions held by a panel of experts participating in a ‘Question Time’ style debate on black-grass, and hosted by crop protection company Bayer. Agrii’s head of agronomy, Colin Lloyd was unequivocal when it came to his favoured cultivation strategy for dealing with serious black-grass problems, highlighting that there are some core principals in the control of black-grass that growers should consider when it comes to their decisions. “If the field is in a complete mess then you must plough. For us, in our trials, the best strategy in a bad situation is to plough, press and then leave it alone. The time between ploughing and drilling should be about six weeks,” he commented. “It does mean later drilling but you can’t go in with any drilling system before the end of September where black-grass is a real problem and honestly expect a good result,” he stressed. He said that growers can make most cultivation systems work, and they can make a big difference to the levels of control, but time was always going to be the limiting factor. “Early ploughing in good conditions has worked well. Ploughing later in bad conditions is worse – it must be done in the right place and at the right time for the best results.”

Mr Lloyd said that, ideally, he would advise growers to plough in year one and then employ shallow cultivation/drilling systems for the next four years. This, he commented, had worked the best at the company’s heavy land black-grass technology centre, Stow Longa near Huntingdon. “Ploughing is expensive compared with other systems and it needs to be done well, but all our ploughing is done early when it’s dry and then cultivations are kept shallow for the next four years. “However, fields can start to get messy again by year four,” he added, pointing out that even after the plough, drilling has to be done later in the season if there is to be an improvement in black-grass control.

Plough when needed? Buckinghamshire, Berkshire and Oxfordshire-based AICC agronomist Andrew Cotton, also on the panel, said that ploughing, or not, was very much down to the individual farmer. “Some are able to make persistent non-inversion methods work, resulting in soils with good organic material in them and good trafficability, only to be spoilt again by ploughing, they say. “But I have a client who ploughs one year in four or, more to the point, he ploughs when needed.

Agrii’s head of agronomy, Colin Lloyd pictured at Bayer’s ‘Black-grass Live’ event.

“While strip-till doesn’t seem to work for me with some areas left untilled and some over cultivated, I can see advantages in no-till, min-till and the plough according to what the farm needs.

“If a rotational plough is for you, then fine,” he added.

Reduced-pass systems The pros and cons of deep, one pass cultivation systems were also discussed with Colin Lloyd pointing out that it was a quick way to process a seedbed and, when the chemicals all worked against black-grass, it was a good system to use. But with the problems with black-grass now, that type of system mixes up the soil too much, he said. “In our rotational trials at Stow Longa last year, where we could guarantee a high black-grass seed return, the deep one-pass system resulted in 876 black-grass ears/ m2 when drilling took place before 30th September, which was totally unsuccessful. “However using the same system of one-pass cultivation on the same day (late August), but drilling during the third week in October, the result was only 72 ears of black-grass ears/ m2,” he pointed out. He said that looking back over the past 15 years at Stow Longa, the last big flush of black-grass, when cultivations were done early, had usually been around the 2nd October. “So there are huge differences we can make even if we don’t change the machinery we have, but we can’t keep doing the same thing with a high seed return, moving lots of soil and being drilled up by the 30th September – it’s a road to nowhere,” he stressed. Moving on to other min-till operations, Andrew Cotton suggested that cultivator drills could also cause difficulties by causing too much cultivation at the time of drilling, bringing undisturbed soil to the surface and causing another flush of black-grass. Although it was highlighted to him that the cultivation element of some one-pass drills could often be removed, he also suggested that wide row widths contributed to black-grass establishment. “Black-grass likes light and I like narrow spacing, and so this means a disc drill for me as it’s best for not bringing up fresh problems, especially when spring drilling,” he explained. “There’s nothing wrong with different cultivation concepts such as direct drilling or min-till, as long as you are drilling into something you should be drilling into,” continued Colin Lloyd. “Where people look at new concepts and then sell machinery off farm to pay for it, that worries me.

AICC agronomist Andrew Cotton (right) explains the merits of various cultivation methods and black-grass control, while Huntingdon-based grower Paul Drinkwater looks on.

This type of kit can be expensive and it’s very rare that one system will fit all,” he said. Essex farmer and chair for the discussion, Tom Bradshaw, said that well drained soil was the key to making most establishment systems work. “If heavy land is poorly drained then it’s very challenging and that’s the starting point for me. “I direct drill on the farm when I can direct drill; when those fields are in the right condition and OK to do it. It’s not the case with every field but it offers me the flexibility to access a cost saving and the benefits of reduced black-grass,” he explained.

Spring cropping Moving on to spring cropping, Andrew Cotton said that it was one of the answers for reducing black-grass pressure however controlling blackgrass in a spring crop was a challenge – highlighting that there were no EMUs as yet for flufenacet or Avadex (tri-allate) in spring wheat. “Generally, control of black-grass is better on the lighter land and harder on the deep rooting heavy land but that doesn’t necessarily make it easy on light land. Ploughing light land can result in black-grass seeds being thrown onto the adjacent furrow rather than burying them,” he said. Also on the panel was Huntingdon-based grower Paul Drinkwater who is crop production manager at Abbots Ripton Farming Company. He said that spring cropping on the estate included peas, beans, sugar beet and potatoes, and, although they were previously called ‘cleaning crops’, he is seeing increasing levels of black-grass in them. “The trouble with spring crops is that they are quite open initially and, as we are seeing more spring germination of black-grass at that time of the season, we are looking at spring barley to help us out,” he explained. “We farm on anything from boulder clay through to silts and we have black-grass on all soil types. It’s not spreading too far but we certainly have it on light land,” he added. ■

Arable Spring wheat

Field f cus Disappointing winter barley and OSR yields for our agronomists reflect the national picture, but there is some optimism as the wheat harvest continues. Dominic Kilburn writes.

East Midlands Speaking in the middle of August, Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire-based Arable Alliance and AICC agronomist, Andrew Wells said that all his growers were now cutting wheat, despite some crops looking a little green without complete senescence of the stems. “Some are only just about ready but it’s coming in dry, and yields and quality have been

surprisingly good considering what preceded it in terms of winter barley and oilseed rape,” he commented. “We’ve certainly seen a yield penalty on the heavy and poorly drained fields, and where blackgrass was a problem, but, on the lighter and more free-draining land yields are generally good while not breaking any records. Quality wheats are fine in terms of Hagberg, specific weight and protein, he added. Andrew said that going into harvest winter barley had “looked fantastic” but the final grain size

had been too small. “It looked like a 9t/ha crop but in the end it was typically 7.5t/ha,” he pointed out. Showing more variability in the region was oilseed rape, with some growers in Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire achieving yields of up to 3.7t/ha, however 3t/ha will be more like the average. Mixed rainfall patterns during June might have been another factor in the variability of the crop with some areas recording over 175mm of rain in June, although a lack of sunshine was likely to be the biggest issue this season, suggested Andrew.

As this edition of Farmers Guide arrives on the doormat Andrew reckoned the combines would be gathering in the last of the spring sown wheats, and later maturing winter wheats, while thoughts have already turned to the establishment of new crops and strategies for black-grass control in particular. “By mid-September there will be some wheat and barley about to be drilled on the lighter land where there are no grass weeds, but the majority of growers will have grass weeds to deal with first.” Some OSR drilling started in mid-August but, according to Andrew, the soil surface was very dry and some forecasted rain would be welcome. Soil structures are quite challenging on heavy land having baked hard and OSR is being drilled by sub-casting using very low disturbance legs. “The key is to roll it twice to achieve surface consolidation and maintain any moisture there is in the seedbed, as well as providing the best chance of seed-to-soil contact.” Andrew suggested that while it was currently too dry for slug continued on page 116

Still plenty of ‘plus points’ for sticking with OSR OSR may not be the ‘break banker’ that it used to be but with rapeseed prices creeping up to the £300/t mark it highlights the potential returns that are on offer. Farmers Guide reports. Spring beans and linseeds have found favour, especially the latter in the fight against black-grass, but margins rarely meet that of a half-decent OSR crop, and with grain prices rather stagnant, taking a margin out of OSR is bound to attract the interest of growers. Of course the problems of establishment, pests and diseases are as prevalent as ever and the crop still has the habit of throwing up the odd yield surprise – both positive and negative. Those establishment, pest and disease problems coupled with disappointing yields from the 2015/16 season may cause growers to ponder agronomic strategies but two senior agronomists are urging growers not to give up on the crop just yet. Both point to the lack of sunlight as a significant factor in last season’s poor performance and stress the importance of the crop in rotation and overall farm profitability.

Much of Prime Agriculture’s Andrew Blazey’s (right) area can be categorised as a ‘cabbage stem flea beetle (CSFB) hotspot’ but he feels acceptable crop performance is still achievable. “There’s no doubt that CSFB is bad but it was only one factor in the poor yields we saw last season,” he notes. With chemical control primarily restricted to products such as pyrethroids, Biscaya (thiacloprid) and Plenum (pymetrozine), Mr Blazey places just as much emphasis on cultural strategies. Thus drilling date, variety and seed/soil contact are the factors that drive his thinking.

Vigorous varieties He sees getting plants ‘up and away’ as the essential key for dealing with CSFB, and other pests too. So he favours the most vigorous varieties but this goes beyond the

establishment phase. Not only is he concerned with autumn vigour but spring growth habit too. “Much of the damage is done through adults feeding on cotyledons and early true leaves. The earlier you can get crops through this stage the better. But spring vigour is vital too. The more vigorous varieties are more resilient to larvae and pigeon attack in the spring. The vigour of hybrids can be invaluable in both scenarios.” But even with hybrid vigour he also urges growers to think soil structure. “Getting the appropriate crumb structure is key with seedto-soil contact. I advocate early drilling to get the crop away and a good seedbed will also help this. I appreciate that there is a host of cultivation and establishment techniques but a fine crumb of 1–5mm will enhance seed/soil contact and make it easier for roots to establish. Too cloddy a seedbed will only produce struggling plants and a haven for CSFB adults to survive in,” he says.

He also advises growers to take the same kind of care with seed placement. He points out that some systems don’t offer accurate depth control which will only lead to variable establishment, again creating havens for adults and uneven emergence patterns. Seed rates are tailored to soils. Plant population target is 25–30 plants/m2 established and good soils and good seedbeds will see hybrids sown around 40–50 seeds/ m2 and conventional varieties in the region of 80 seeds/m2. However, he notes that there is no option but to increase rates for heavy soils to offset establishment losses. “I’m looking for relatively low plant populations but they must be even. If too many plants

Arable get established it results in thin stems. A thicker stem will be hardier against CSFB attack,” he advises. Where needed Mr Blazey will call on chemical solutions such as pyrethroids, but he would welcome a more rapid field test to assess resistance and a forecasting system to provide guidance when they are migrating into the establishing crop. “Timing is so critical. Beetle movement is often difficult to predict and for such products to work effectively they need to be used at the optimum timing.”

Light leaf spot Stephen Harrison (below) of South West Agronomy is fortunate to escape the worst of CSFB but has seen an increase in light leaf spot (LLS). But he too feels there are plenty of ‘plus points’ when it comes to OSR. “There’s more research in recent years that has increased our knowledge and we do know how to grow it, as well as often being the most lucrative break crop. It still fits in many rotations but if you set out to grow a 3t/ha crop that’s what you’re more likely to achieve.” But for him light leaf spot has been an increasing concern. The west and south west have been hit hard in recent seasons and CropMonitor data reveals just what a problem the disease is. In all regions it has overtaken phoma as OSR disease threat number one and in 2012 and 2014 UK losses topped £140m. Much of the problem, he says, is through ‘ideal’ weather for infection. “Last season we enjoyed another mild winter. And so did the disease, being polycyclic there was nothing to stop it,” he notes. He also feels part of the problem has been a lack of high performing varieties with good disease resistance, something now rectified. As a result he now endorses the advice of expert SRUC’s Dr Fiona Burnett. “I really feel that growers shouldn’t be going for anything less than a ‘6’ against the disease. We now have good conventional and hybrid options that offer good performance with disease resistance.” But he warns that varietal resistance doesn’t mean that growers can cut or omit sprays. He

sees varietal resistance as giving some much needed flexibility. “The problem with LLS is that it can just keep cycling, constantly threatening unprotected crops. To make matters worse infection phases often fall at a time when travel can be difficult. We’ve seen in the past growers get in with a first autumn fungicide only for the weather to beat them and delay or halt a second.” Which is why he urges growers to use the most effective products at robust rates. His preference is prothioconazole but difenoconazole (Plover) and penthiopyrad + picoxystrobin (Refinzar) will also feature in autumn programmes to manage LLS and phoma. “You

only had to look at untreated trial plots last season to see the potential damage. We really need to be thinking of efficacy and persistence which is why I would prefer to see rates of Proline275 (prothioconazole) at 0.46-litres/ha over 0.32-litres/ha. Also, growers can still expect an economic response to robust disease control programmes even with the most resilient varieties,” he notes. He also values a second spray where conditions for the disease are favourable. “Your next travel opportunity might not be until stem extension. If the disease cycles through winter the second spray could be invaluable in seeing

Growers shouldn’t be going for anything less than a ‘6’ variety rating against light leaf spot.

the crop through. Also if you’re likely to be going in with a Kerb (propyzamide) then it makes sense to ‘top up’ LLS at the same time.” ■

Survey shows optimism in on-going war on weeds Black-grass now has a serious effect on whole farm profitability and productivity for nearly 60 per cent of arable growers, according to results of the latest nationwide survey conducted by Syngenta. Ranking the effects out of 10, growers rated the weeds’ effects as 9.7; with less than 2 per cent seeing little or no impact on the farm. While the problem is continuing to get worse on 60 per cent of farms, encouragingly 75 per cent of farmers now believe they have the tools and measures to get back in control in the future, reported to Syngenta marketing communications lead, Cat Gray (right). “A quarter of all growers who completed the survey highlighted the situation has been actually getting better on their farms,” she said. “Utilising a range of integrated agronomy tools, alongside an effective herbicide strategy, appears to be paying dividends.”

Popular changes The survey revealed that delayed drilling and growing more spring crops were seen as the most popular agronomy changes, both adopted by nearly 90 per cent of respondents. However, while 80 per cent of them considered spring cropping was effective or highly effective, only 23 per cent believed delayed drilling was proving highly effective. Increased herbicide stacking was being used by 85 per cent of growers, with a similar number having increased seed rates to further reduce black-grass competitiveness and seed return. Some 57 per cent of growers had

grown more competitive hybrid barley in a bid to gain a greater effect. “Ploughing was still widely used, on over 80 per cent of farms, but less than a third saw it as effective or highly effective – with 25 per cent believing it had limited value in the overall programme,” reported Cat. “Rogueing was less popular and also seen as of limited value, especially when compared to the burn-off of infested crop patches, which over 60 per cent of respondents said was effective or highly effective. “What was clearly apparent from the survey is that growers are now using a wide range of agronomy tools in developing a truly integrated approach to long-term management of black-grass,” she added.

Stacking The report also highlighted that over half of growers are now using four or more herbicides in a stacked treatment programme. Pre-emergence application timing was the most popular, applied by 96 per cent of growers, along with 85 per cent using post-emergence treatments. Peri-emergence herbicide treatment was least popular. “Interestingly, while a high number of growers still apply post-emergence treatments, 59 per cent of them considered the applications of little or limited value,” said Cat. “However, 86 per cent of those using pre-emergence applications reported effective or highly effective results, and just 2 per cent seeing limited value.” The efficacy of post-emergence

Rotational focus lends herbicides a hand The Avacast GR 400 is mounted on a small trailer and is trailed behind the farm’s John Deere Gator UTV.

Black-grass is not going to go away and that has meant a renewed focus on its control for many UK arable farms given the lack of new chemistry available, believes Julian Gold, farm manager of Hendred Estate, a 750ha (1,850 acre) farming partnership near East Hendred in Oxfordshire. “In recent years the rotations of many growers had narrowed based on the better price returns they were receiving from wheat and rape in comparison with other crops and I think it’s fair to say there was a lot of over reliance on Atlantis without

really considering many other support systems to reduce blackgrass,” he points out. Four years ago Mr Gold made the first in a series of changes to the Hendred farming operation by moving to a controlled traffic farming (CTF) system improving crop establishment by reducing soil compaction. In 2014 he then followed this by widening his crop rotation from a five-year plan to a new six-year programme. “We now go with oilseed rape, then first wheat, and then we bring in a double break of spring barley

and spring beans to help combat the black-grass. We then go back to winter wheat followed by a second cereal, usually winter barley,” he explains. BASIS qualified Mr Gold is quick to admit that the chemical options out there to contain the black-grass are extremely limited but beyond widening the rotation and improving crop establishment, one of the keys to effective black-grass control for him is applying Avadex (tri-allate) and a good pre-emergence herbicide onto the newly drilled land. “There aren’t too many Avadex applicator contractors around here and regardless of the number of contractors I could call, it’s no use picking up the phone to be told it might be another 10 days before the it can be applied. So in July 2015 we decided to take control and bought our own Avacast applicator through Cambridgeshire based Techneat Engineering,” he comments. The Avacast GR 400 is mounted on a small trailer and is trailed behind the farm’s John Deere Gator

UTV enabling Mr Gold to apply the Avadex at lower ground pressure and minimise soil compaction. “It’s a nice machine, all selfcontained, simple to operate and pretty much does what it says on the tin. The boom travels nicely on the independent linkage system, it takes a couple of minutes to set up and offers us accurate coverage with no real need to recalibrate. We’ve made one adjustment since purchase which was to trim the geo boom from 12 to 10m in line with the tramlines for our CTF system and, with an optimum working speed of 12kph, we can comfortably spread 80ha (200 acres) of Avadex per day.” Since purchasing the new machine last summer, Mr Gold confirms he has now spread just over 200ha (500 acres) of Avadex and, alongside the rotation changes he had previously made, it has certainly helped alleviate some of the blackgrass issues. He is now planning to switch the existing roller within the applicator to a fine seed roller enabling him to use the Avacast GR to spread grass seed in the future alongside its other duties. ■

Take trouble over your stubble You typically need 540g/ha of glyphosate to control grass weed seedlings of up to six tillers and up to 1,800g/ha for the most difficult perennials, growers are advised.

More care and less speed in stubble glyphosate spraying are critical to making the most of its increasingly vital role in arable grass weed control this autumn, insist leading crop management experts. “With time at such a premium and effective control of black-grass and other troublesome weeds ahead of drilling so crucial, less-than-ideal pre-planting glyphosate treatment is something you can’t afford these days,” stressed Monsanto technical specialist, Barrie Hunt (left). “Quite apart from wasting time and money and putting extra pressure on hard-pressed pre-and post-em chemistry, an incomplete kill is the fastest route to resistance development.” “You’ve only got one or two shots to tackle black-grass ahead of drilling,” pointed out Agrii regional technical adviser and spraying specialist, David Felce (right). “And, if you’ve got bad blackgrass these can be your

most important sprays of the season. So it makes sense to take the time and effort to get your glyphosate application spot on.”

Targeting Correct glyphosate targeting is as important as timing in Mr Felce’s opinion. For which he is adamant that operators need to spray at the right speed, height and pressure with the most appropriate nozzles as well as using the correct rates and water volumes. “When workloads are stretched, as they tend to be in the autumn, it’s tempting to crack-on with stubble spraying at 14–16kph with the boom set high enough to ensure good ground clearance and coarse or air induction nozzles to minimise drift risk,” he said. “In my experience, water volumes as low as 100-litres/ha are fine. They allow you to cover more hectares in a day and get higher concentrations of glyphosate onto the leaf. “In view of its translocated action, in line with traditional glyphosate guidance, I would normally recommend a relatively coarse spray in

the interests of drift reduction. But with small, thin seedling black-grass leaves, the spray shouldn’t be too coarse as this limits droplet numbers, reducing coverage and your chances of hitting all the targets.” For this reason too Mr Felce strongly advises against using air induction nozzles. Instead, he sees 03 flat fan (FF) nozzles operated at 2.5 bar as the best all-round option. For the most effective seedling weed targeting and least drift risk he advocates a boom height of around 50cm and forward speed of 12kph to minimise turbulence effects. Where it’s difficult getting the boom down to this level, he suggests replacing the standard FF110 with an 80º nozzle to ensure the right spray quality. “The short autumn window between harvesting and drilling on many units makes it vital to guard against conditions that can compromise glyphosate uptake

and activity,” observed Barrie Hunt. “In particular, hot and dry weather, rainfall within a few hours of spraying, and hard water. “This makes it important to use modern Roundup formulations proven to give better control of difficult weeds under challenging conditions rather than merely increasing rates or adding adjuvants. The fact that they are significantly less prone to drift through flat fan nozzles than standard generic formulations and have a cultivation interval of just six hours on annual grass weeds makes them particularly valuable in this respect. “It’s equally important to use the right rate of glyphosate for the job,” he insisted. “You typically need 540g/ ha of glyphosate to control grass weed seedlings of up to six tillers and up to 1,800g/ha for the most difficult perennials. In most situations, adjuvants will not make up for any lack of active ingredient.” Where drilling has to be delayed for more than a few days after stubble spraying, Mr Hunt sees the approval of modern Roundups for postplanting, pre-emergence application and their broad tank-mixing compatibility as giving valuable extra flexibility to autumn glyphosate treatment, ensuring pre-ems don’t have to control emerged weeds. ■

CIPC labels and stewardship guidance updated for 2016/17 Changes for the forthcoming year to product labels for chlorpropham (CIPC) have recently come into force and, on 1st August, the Potato Industry CIPC Stewardship Group released its updated guidance for the forthcoming season, according to AHDB Potatoes. CIPC is essential for the control ofsprouting and is applied to almost two million tonnes of potatoes stored each year across the industry in Great Britain. In line with the ‘Step Down’ process working towards a new panEuropean rate for 2017, there are new, lower application rates for CIPC use in the coming season which have now been approved, says the organisation. These were requested by the companies that hold the approvals for formulations as part of the CIPC Stewardship process and will help to ensure compliance with the Maximum Residue Level (MRL) of 10mg/kg. For the 2016-17 season, the new statutory limits for total dose, approved by Chemicals Regulation Directorate (CRD) are 42g/t for processing (including fish & chip shop supplies and peeling) and 24g/t for the fresh market. The latest time of application is 14 days before removal

from store for sale or processing and is also a statutory requirement. Additionally, Stewardship best practice, endorsed by the NAAC’s CIPC Applicator Group and Red Tractor Farm Assurance, continues to allow just one application of up to 16g/t in cold stores as CIPC residue declines more slowly at cold temperature. This applies to all stores to be held below 5°C. This application should be made early in storage during pull-down, before the temperature is decreased below 7°C, for maximum efficacy.

Be 2017 Ready The Stewardship Group is also urging users to ‘Be 2017 Ready’ by taking on board the changes necessary to introduce Active Recirculation as part of the application process. This requires that the fog must be actively and evenly recirculated through the potatoes using the main or supplementary fans and will be mandatory in all stores from July 2017 onwards. It is recommended that users consult their NAAC CIPC Applicator to discuss this requirement now to ensure that, if steps have not yet been taken, applications can still be made next season. ■

Popular mid-range tractors gain premium range features

visibility, and a new screen with a curved upper section is an option which will attract loader users. Front axle suspension is an option for the first time, borrowed from the Maxxum range, and offering three levels of damping. Those using the Luxxum for field work will benefit from the availability of larger 600/60R38 rear tyres, for improved traction. All-new loaders are available from the factory, with wider arm spacing to improve stability and visibility.

Maxxum updates

Updates to the popular Case IH Maxxum line-up and the introduction of a new Luxxum range will be welcomed by livestock, mixed and small arable farms. David Williams reports. The latest models were demonstrated at an exclusive German press event, with the opportunity to test-drive them in the field. The Maxxum and Luxxum ranges account for power outputs between 99–179hp, a sector particularly important for the manufacturer, with 28,000 Maxxum tractors produced by the company since their introduction in 1989.

improved by five per cent over the Tier 4 interim versions. The result is engine performance ideally suited for transport with maximum torque at 1,500rpm, and maximum power between 1,900– 2,300rpm. Lubricant changes are needed every 600hrs, reducing cost and downtime.

New models, new name


There are three Luxxum models; 99, 107 and 117hp and product marketing manager Remo Muller said the design objective was to provide versatile power for mid-sized farms. Transport and haulage, loader work, light tillage and crop application tasks are expected to be main activities for the series. The Luxxum has a new engine using SCR (Adblue) to meet Tier 4 final emissions regulations, without a diesel particulate filter and with minimal exhaust gas recirculation (EGR). Just 10 per cent of the exhaust gas is recirculated, and fuel combustion is enhanced by higher injection pressures for the new engine compared with its Farmall U-Pro predecessor. Maximum power is at just 1,900rpm, saving fuel and reducing noise and vibration, and torque is up by seven per cent from 457NM to 490NM, with torque back-up

Drive is through a 32x32 powershift transmission with a power shuttle including adjustable drive take-up. There are four powershift gears and the operator can select full automatic control; ideal for transport tasks, in which the engine and transmission management system matches the appropriate gear ratio to the required operating speed and load, optimising efficiency and ease of use. The transmission offers great flexibility with13 gears covering the usual working speed range, ensuring plenty of overlap for best engine efficiency. The company was asked whether a CVX version with CVT transmission will be added later, but a spokesman explained user tests during new model development had included some using competitor brands

Many Luxxum tractors will operate with loaders and a new front screen with a curved upper section improves visibility from the cab.

with CVT, but that the automatic powershift was preferred for some of its use characteristics. Therefore, its development isn’t seen as a priority currently. Control is through the Multicontroller armrest in which all main functions are grouped for ease of use. Transmission controls are orange, remote services controls are black and there is an integrated loader joystick which can be programmed to include elements of transmission control.

Isobus available from 99hp

The Luxxum range is brand new, replacing the previous Farmall U-Pro models.

The tractors are available with Isobus class 2 compatibility, allowing functions such as rate and section control through the Case IH AFS display. Hydraulic flow rate is uprated by 20 litres/min to 80 litres/min with 100 litres/min an option, supplied by a closed circuit load-sensing pump. 4-speed PTO is standard. The cab offers superb all-around

The Maxxum range competes in a market sector full of quality competitors, and Case IH has 14 models in its line-up to cater for every user type. Demand for mid-range tractors with features and technology similar to that of larger premium models has increased, but the upgraded specification and long list of options means the new Maxxums will easily tempt those used to the current range. For improved field performance and weight distribution, the wheelbase of the new models is longer by 26cm, reducing ballast requirement for rear linkage-mounted implements, but the same 5.4m turning radius is maintained. Weight distribution is approximately 56/44 per cent front to rear. Power for most models is from a 4.5-litre 4-cyl, FPT but there is an alternative 6-cyl 6.7-litre power unit for the largest model, for those who prefer the smoother power delivery. All versions use Hi-eSCR to meet Tier 4 final emissions requirements with just SCR (Adblue), no EGR and no diesel particulate filter either. The models are the Maxxum 115, 125, 135 and 145 (4-cyl) and 150 (6-cyl) with 16 x 16, 4-speed semipowershift transmission, also available as Multicontroller (MC) versions and all except the 150 available as Maxxum CVX versions, with CVT transmission. A 32x32 transmission is available as an alternative to the 16x16 unit with a creeperr ratio. PowerBoost provides additional power for PTO and transport tasks, with up to 175hp available from the Maxxum 145, and Maxxum 150. CVX specification includes automatic productivity management (APM), which constantly adjusts engine speed and transmission ratio for optimal performance, incorporating Eco drive, which ensures lowest possible engine speed, saving fuel. continued over...

The 6-cylinder Maxxum 150MC offers great flexibility and superb power delivery. ...from previous page

All models have adjustable power shuttle, allowing the rate of drive takeup, when alternating between forward and reverse, to be adjusted.

Engine braking option The new Maxxums use an exhaust flap to regulate gas flow to the SCR unit and this doubles as an optional exhaust brake. Exhaust brakes are popular on larger models in the Case IH range, explained the company, adding that often brakes are used to slow the vehicle, rather than bring it to a complete stop, and in this situation exhaust brakes offer advantages. Up to 25–29kW of braking power is provided by the Maxxum’s system and significant demand is expected from those engaged in regular transport tasks.

Capability increased Rear lift capacity is increased to 7.8t. Rear spool valves have been relocated

to each side of the top link, where previously they could be reached easily only from one side making access difficult for users. The Maxxum has up to four rear mechanical spools, whereas MC and CVX models have electronic control through the Multicontroller armrest. For those frequently hitching up trailers, a push-back pick-up hitch is an attractive option. PTO options include up to three speeds. Front axle suspension is uprated and larger rear tyres, up to 650/65R38, can be accommodated, with new design mudguards providing complete cover. Permitted gross vehicle weight is 9.5t. Fuel capacity is increased over previous models to 195 litres (std) and 220 litres (optional) on base Maxxum models. On the Maxxum MC and CVX, standard capacity is 220 litres, with 230 litres an option and the Adblue tank

takes 39.5 litres, reducing time spent refueling. The cab is excellent, offering great comfort and superb visibility all around. A new, more attractive roof is similar to that used on the Puma and Optum models, including improved control layout. For those working longer days, new lighting options include a package of up to 16 LED lights, of 2,000 lumens each, and a new range of seats will maintain operator comfort.

Precision farming Case IH Advanced Farming Systems technology on the new models includes equipping Maxxum MC and CVX versions from the factory Accuguide-ready, and fitted with an AFS Pro 700 monitor. This means dealers can supply tractors with

fully automatic and integrated GPS/ Glonass lane tracking fully installed and, combined with an RTK signal, this allows precision within 2.5cms. With the xFill App, the system maintains accuracy for up to 20 minutes, even with the correction signal completely lost. Helping the operator get the best from the machine, the HMC 2 headland management system can be installed, allowing working sequences to be recorded, improved and automated during headland turns. Isobus Class 3 is a high-end option, only for CVX models, allowing compatible implements to control tractor functions including forward speed, PTO speed or rear linkage operation. The new Maxxums can be supplied continued over...

Test drive Farmers Guide test-drove the Maxxum 150 MC with a rear-mounted cultivator, and it was easy to see the attraction of the 6-cyl power unit in the test field. The new 4-cylinder engines offer all the power and torque most users will need, but a test-drive in the 6-cylinder with its smoother power delivery and tone, would make it a difficult choice.

and became familiar after just a few headland turns. The benefits provided by the automatic transmission shifting were obvious, particularly when variations in travel speed were demanded, mid-slope, in a hilly area of the field. There is a lot of good competition in the size sector, but the latest Maxxum tractors will compete well, have comfortable cabs, attractive styling, and there is always that 6-cylinder to consider...

Baler updates New RB 545-series fixed-chamber balers were shown at the event, and will be available for 2017. RB545 and RB545 Silage Pack models are joined by the RB544 Silage Pack HD, making ultra-dense 122x135cm bales. All have a new 220cm pick-up, similar to that of variable chamber models. Five tine supports and steel tines, each of 5.5mm diameter, pick up cleanly without losses, while

New fixed chamber round balers were shown. The RB545 has a new, wider pickup, a heavy-duty drive train and Isobus capability allowing control of tractor functions.

powerful springs, working with two hydraulic cylinders, provide accurate ground contour following, minimising soil contamination. A crop press keeps material firmly pressed onto the pick-up ensuring efficient engagement with the tines and a smooth chopper feed without bunching. Guide wheel options include fixed and idling, with both variants capable of adjustment without tools and easy removal for transport. An uprated drive train will maintain high output in heavy conditions, and includes a heavier gauge main drive chain for the rotor and bale chamber. The cutter rotor used on RB545 and RB545 Silage Pack versions has 20 blades as standard equipment, providing 52mm theoretical length of chop. The chop settings are manually adjusted and include 0, 10 or 20 blades. Where 10 blades are selected, this provides a ‘spare’ set, which can be switched in to action in seconds

when the other requires sharpening, minimising downtime. A passive folding floor behind the rotor, operated from the cab, is used to clear blockages. New bale rollers with 10 ribs (increased from four previously) engage material providing more aggressive rotation, and ensure uniform bales even in heavy working conditions.

Isobus compatible The new RB 545 series is Isobus compatible and can be ordered with or without the AFS 700 monitor. An added benefit of monitor control is that an optional camera can be added to keep an eye on what is happening at the rear. The monitor provides visualisation of the entire bale-making and wrapping process, as well as a memory card to store up to 25 job records. Compatibility with Isobus Class 2 allows Tractor Implement Management, through which tractor functions such as operating speed can be controlled by the baler, maintaining optimal performance and reducing operator fatigue. ■

we also get going quicker in the field. As with the CVX transmission, when it comes to running costs, it means that the investment we’ve made through Fram Farmers saves us money in the long term.”

Key for Case IH fans

Case IH deal keeps Fram Farmers members smiling Fram Farmers provides the purchasing, grain marketing and administrative function for over 1,400 farming businesses across the UK. It has operated a special rebate scheme with Case IH since 2004. Here, three members discuss the savings it provides. Rebate sweetens purchase

“When we took on additional land in 2015 it was more than our Claas Lexion 580 could handle, so we considered using a contractor,” explains John Larter, who farms with wife Julie and son Ben. “When we were offered a deal on a new Case IH tracked Axial-Flow, it was too good to refuse, especially with the Fram Farmers rebate.” Plant Larter Farms operates seven East Anglian farms over a 14-mile radius - some 4,000 acres growing wheat, barley, OSR, sugar beet, peas and maize. John’s father joined Fram Farmers in the 1970s. Today, they use it to purchase ag-chems, fertiliser, wearing parts, fuel, ‘phones, electricity and gas. “We’d never really looked at a modern Axial-Flow, but having seen the benefit of tracks with a wide header we knew we wanted them. When Ernest Doe Power put together an outstanding deal on a new Axial-Flow 9230 it was an obvious choice. It arrived just as we started harvest and we can’t fault the machine or the service,” Ben adds. “The extra rebate through Fram Farmers was just the icing on the cake with a substantial manufacturer’s discount in addition to what the dealer could offer a very worthwhile additional saving. “The Axial-Flow is completely different from the Lexion. When we use our 580 in a green or damp crop

we worry about it blocking. Clearing it out would take ages, so you always hold back. The Axial-Flow is just the opposite: you can push as hard as you like, because even if it does block you just flick a switch and it will clear itself. It really is a great machine.”

Smooth efficiency with CVT

The Steward family have been Fram Farmers members since the early ‘70s, and while they have had Case IH tractors for many years, are more recent converts to the Axial-Flow combine. Their farm in East Suffolk grows combinable crops, sugar beet and hay and makes full use of Case IH’s smooth continuously variable transmission, known as CVX. Their fleet includes three Pumas (165, 215 and 230) and a Maxxum 130 all with the technology. The ability to allow the transmission/engine controller to find

the minimum engine rpm required for the job in hand provides the major fuel-saving benefit of the Puma’s CVX transmission, says Sam Steward. “When ploughing with a five-furrow reversible, I can work down at 1,400rpm, and when drilling with our 4.8m Vaderstad cultivator drill the tractor happily ticks along at 14-18km/hr also at 1,400rpm.” They use smaller Case IH machines for trailer work, fertiliser spreading and other tasks. “We ran CS tractors for many years,” explains father Roy. “A couple of years ago we bought our Maxxum through the Fram Farmers scheme. It’s the tractor for us – we use it more than anything else.” In 2010 it was the turn of the combine to change to red. The Stewards switched to an Axial-Flow 7088, then upgraded in 2013 to a 7230. “They are easy to service and operate, so not only do we save on time in the mornings, but

Left to right: Christopher, Trevor and Stephen Ford.

The significant additional rebates, to which Fram Farmers members who purchase new Case IH equipment are entitled through the Machinery Scheme, are a key attraction for a farming family who purchased one of the first Axial-Flow combines sold in the UK. Case IH machinery has long been a favourite of the Ford family at Red House Farm near the Norfolk/ Suffolk border. Having operated Claas combines until 1978, that was the year they purchased their first Axial-Flow 1440. Randolph Ford was impressed by its simple, logical design, ease of use and maintenance, together with very low grain losses. That led to a succession of Axial-Flow combines over the years, the new 22’ Axial-Flow 6140 replacing their previous 20’ 6088, which was itself preceded by a 2366, 2166, 1660 and their second-ever Axial-Flow, a 1460, which took over from the original in the early 1980s. The family also operate two Case IH Puma 160 CVX tractors and a Maxxum 110. “As far as tractors and combines are concerned, we are totally Case IH and have depended on them for almost 40 years,” says Stephen Ford, who works alongside his brothers Trevor and Chris on the farm bought by their grandfather in the 1920s. What was a 130-acre holding then was subsequently expanded to over 900 acres by their father Randolph who still takes an active interest in the farm. Members of Fram Farmers since the 1970s, the Fords purchase a wide range of inputs through the cooperative and take advantage of the fleet partnership arrangement with Case IH to obtain additional rebates on Case IH machinery. ■ *To find out more about the benefits of Fram Farmers membership, please call 01728 727700 or email Ashley.Gilman@

Tyre pressure solution for Warwickshire grower The 37ft flat-bed trailer has been built for G’s Growers member Ed Lea who farms in Warwickshire.

Flat trailers are an essential part of the farm transport fleet, but usually receive little attention when it comes to their specification. David Williams reports on a Warwickshire user who has invested heavily to ensure optimum performance, on and off-road. Ed Lea’s fleet of 10 large flat trailers transport vegetables and salad crops from the field to the processing site, travelling an average of 18,000–25,000 miles each year. Trading as Sandfields Farm Ltd, he is part of the G’s Growers group, farming owned and rented land within a 35-mile radius of the farm’s base near Stratford-upon-Avon. Crops include salad onions, asparagus, French beans, runner beans, and picking peas, most of which are picked by hand and transported in crates. The crates are loaded on to the 37ft flat trailers in the field and hauled by JCB Fastracs to the packhouse for processing and supply to markets including major supermarkets. “It’s no good us asking supermarket buyers to explain to their customers that the empty fresh produce shelves are due to it being a bit muddy, so our trailers have to be able to transport the crop from the field,” said Ed. “We have to be able to supply, whatever the weather and ground conditions, but this also causes issues for us because we want to look after the soils, reducing compaction and rutting as far as possible.” The current fleet of twin-axle flat-bed trailers was designed and manufactured for the farm by Merrick Loggin, but the large distance travelled each year takes its toll on axles and

wheels. “We run approximately 60 trailers, including the 10 crate trailers and, with safety a priority, have invested to become an official trailer test centre, testing all our own trailers at least once each year. We have set our own braking standard slightly higher than official guidelines at 50 per cent braking efficiency and we try to keep everything in good condition, mainly for safety but also because breakdowns are a major issue when they occur.” The field loading tractors are all on wide flotation tyres, and the current trailers are on low pressure tyres but, operate at pressures mid-way between that recommended for high-speed road use and the lowest possible for the field. “We have been compromising, but I was aware of the growing use of central tyre inflation systems and thought these could offer a solution. We spoke with several trailer manufacturers, all of which were busy, but Essex-based HM Trailers was keen to work with us, despite growing demand for its standard farm trailers. Managing director Grant Perry had previous experience of built-in tyre pressure controls and was able to recommend

something practical,” explained Ed. Single- and twin-line systems were considered, but Grant explained that the twin-line option offered greater security for the distances involved. “Single-line systems allow faster pressure changes, but twin-line systems have pressure-operated valves on each wheel to control the air flow from the main feed line. This means that, if an individual tyre is badly damaged it can be isolated whereas, with a single line, all the other tyres could deflate, resulting in significant inconvenience for Ed’s operation.” The new trailer’s bed design is similar to the previous trailers, including a high headboard protecting produce from mud thrown from the tractor’s wheels, but underneath it includes the latest technology. ADR commercial axles with electronic antilock braking are fitted and, whereas the previous trailers are twin-axle, the HM Trailers version is a tri-axle, with a steering rear axle. High specification Vredestein Flotation Pro 560/45R22.5 tyres are fitted, capable of high road speed behind the JCB Fastracs at 60psi, and 18psi in the field. The Germanmade PTG tyre inflation system adjusts the pressure within one minute, using

air from five built-in 120-litre tanks, refilled from the tractor’s supply. “The new trailer should help us protect the land and provide better mobility in wet conditions,” said Ed. “The Vredestein tread design is excellent, for good self-cleaning capability as well as long working life. The Fastrac tyres operate at higher pressures, but we hope we are doing enough with the trailer wheels to improve the situation so we don’t have to worry about the tractors. If conditions become really wet, then there is always the option to unhitch trailers on the headland and move them to where needed using the widerwheeled loader tractors.” Ed said dealing with HM Trailers was straightforward, and he felt confident at all stages that the company knew what it was doing. “Grant was A1 throughout,” he said. “It’s a very neat system, having been integrated while the trailer was built with nothing to hang down and become damaged in the field. All the operator has to do is press the field or transport buttons on the control pad and the tyre pressures adjust from the cab. The trailer will be put to work immediately hauling salad onions and we would expect HM Trailers to be supplying more similar trailers as soon as we know this one is performing as expected.” ■

Twin-line central inflation was chosen rather than single-line, as it offers reduced risk of all tyres being affected in the event of a problem. Pictured with the new trailer are farmer Ed Lea (right) with Grant Perry. 09R13B

Harvester updates improve productivity

Updates to the Claas line-up of combines and balers were demonstrated at an event in Oxfordshire in mid-August. David Williams reports. Combine updates New 10.8m Vario 1080 and 12.3m Vario 1230 headers have been added for the company’s combines, replacing previous Vario 1050 and 1200 versions. Vario models allow easy switching between crops with the table length adjustable from the cab. Previously spacers had to be inserted in the header floor when it was fully extended for crops such as oilseed rape or rye, but the latest Vario versions have integrated filler plates allowing infinite adjustment. Combine specialist Adam Hayward explained the extra table width is in response to increased use of Controlled Traffic Farming (CTF) systems, where the extra 30cm ensures enough overlap to catch overhanging crops while remaining within the required wheel track positions. The new headers have mechanical knife drive via telescopic PTO shaft, replacing previous rubber drive belts, for positive power transmission and improved performance in heavy, wet crops. Separate drives are used for each side of the split table and blade action is synchronised allowing overlap between the two halves. The intake auger diameter is increased to 660mm for better crop

handling. Previously, the range of movement was -10 to +20cm for cereals, extendable to +50cm for oilseed rape with the filler plates, but the latest design allows infinite adjustment. Dividers and side-knives are easily fitted or removed without tools. A single latch locks and releases, and quick-connect hydraulic service hoses provide power for the knife. “Swapping between crop types has become more frequent, and altering the combine needs to be as easy and quick as possible,” explained Adam. “The recent upgrades will be popular with operators allowing the changeover to be made in just a few minutes, without tools, and without getting covered in dust.”

Unloading auger A new extra-long unloading auger has been added, responding to demand from those operating 12m CTF regimes. The 7XL auger is hinged, reducing projection at the rear during transport and it tucks in, maintaining an overall width narrower than that of the combine. This brings the range of auger options to suit CTF systems to three, including current 4XL, for 10.5m tramlines and the 3XL for 9m.

p Compatibility with CTF farming systems is improved with wider Vario headers and a longer unloading auger option. u The new 7X auger, for 12m CTF systems, pivots for transport.

Claas Lexion 600-series combines all have Mercedes MTU engines, replacing Caterpillar, although model numbers remain the same. Upgrades include faster tank unloading, up to 130-litres/min on 670 and 680 versions.

The new auger is available only for Lexion Terra Trac models with reinforced 11,000- or 13,500-litre grain tanks.

Track updates As demand for tracks continues to increase with benefits including reduced compaction, better traction and narrower transport width compared with wheels, Claas has announced a 40kph travel speed option for its 750TT and 760TT models. The rest of the range retains its 30kph maximum. “Tracks provide extra stability for wider headers leaving stubble length even across the cutting width, and making subsequent field operations easier to manage and demand is strong,” said Adam.

600-Series updates

New Vario headers in 10.8 and 12.3m widths have integrated filler plates rather than requiring spacer plates to be added for the full-forward OSR cutting position. Mechanical knife drive via telescopic PTO shaft replaces the previous self-tensioning rubber belt.

For the 2017 season Lexion 600-series combines gain new engines, and extra features for increased productivity available previously only on Lexion 700 hybrid models.

Dynamic Cooling has been brought across from Lexion 700-series combines, increasing cooling efficiency and saving power and fuel.

The 600 line-up comprises three 6-walker models (Lexion 650/660 and 670) with a 1,700mm drum and two 5-walker models (620 and 630) with a 1,420mm drum. Montana hill-side versions of the 630 and 670 are available and tracks are an option for the two largest models; the 660TT available next year for the first time. The upgrade to Tier 4 final emissions regulations has seen all the Lexion 600 models move to Mercedes MTU engines, replacing Caterpillar. Lexion 660 and 670 models have 10.7-litre engines producing 408 continued over...

and 435hp while the three smaller versions have 7.7-litre power units offering 313hp for the Lexion 620 and 354hp for 630 and 650 models. The Claas Dynamic Cooling system was introduced on the flagship Lexion 780 in 2012, and it is now on 10.7-litre engine versions of the 600-series. A horizontally-mounted radiator behind the engine is fed clean air from above the combine by a variable fan. The air travels through the radiator, then the engine bay, exiting through channels down the sides of the harvester, keeping the engine clear of dust and chaff build-up which could cause overheating and create a fire risk. The variable fan saves up to 15kW of power, when full capacity isn’t needed, leaving more available for threshing and separation. Unloading auger performance is increased on the latest models 110 litres/sec on 620–650 and 670 Montana models and 130-litres/sec on 660 and 670 variants.

Residue management Adam explained that potential buyers have come to regard residue management as highly as other aspects of harvesting performance and new chopper units have been designed for 650, 660 and 670 models. “Users want a constant, fine chop and equal distribution across the working width making it easier to manage the stubbles, control weeds and slugs and establish following crops. The new chaff spreaders offer significant improvements whether straw is dropped or chopped,” he said. The new choppers have a 50mm larger knife drum, providing more space between blades for material. Resulting blade tip speed is higher and the longer knife edge gives a cleaner cutting. An extended floor accelerates crop faster through the chopper, resulting in a wider spread pattern. The operator selects chopping or swathing at the touch of a button in the cab, making it easy to respond to variable crop conditions or

New straw choppers and chaff spreading systems were demonstrated.

work area. A diverter flap directs straw to the chopper housing or out of the rear for a swath. ‘Premium Line’ knives are an option, extending working life by up to four times over standard versions. The new mechanical drive, radial chaff spreader throws material sideways, spreading across the working width and uses hydraulic adjustment to compensate for crosswinds or slopes. Spread width is up to 9m, adequate for most applications, and will mean users no longer need to upgrade to the optional Powerspread system, which spreads to 12m.

Pushing output Helping users make the most of potential performance, Claas has introduced an improved version of its Auto Crop Flow Control for Lexion 600 models. Developed for the Lexion 700-series last year, sensors monitor engine speed, the APS drum, the impeller drum and the straw chopper to alert the operator when he is in danger of overloading the machine, and stops the table and elevator if a blockage is imminent. For combines equipped with Cruise Pilot, which maintains constant threshing performance in variable conditions, the system reduces travel speed without operator intervention. “There can be reluctance to optimise work rates, particularly when conditions are tricky and variable,” explained Adam. “Operators often play safe by maintaining a speed they know is well within capabilities, but often the machine could work faster, and this monitoring system helps users make the most of its capability.” Auto slope control is another new feature on 600-series models. Varying fan speed in response to slope angle, air flow increases when travelling uphill, and reduces when travelling down, equalising the time taken for grain to move over the sieves whatever the operating angle.

is automated, to obtain the cleanest sample. Fan speed and sieve opening adjusts in response to conditions determined by sensors throughout the machine. Selectable parameters include maximum throughput, minimal fuel consumption, best straw quality, high grain quality or an optimal balance of all factors. “Since Cemos was introduced on 700-series machines, we have seen a five per cent increase in take-up year on year,” commented Adam. “It’s a driver aid; it certainly doesn’t replace a skilled operator but it does help get the best out of the machine.” A new upgrade to Cemos Auto includes chopper and grain quality cameras. Using fruit grading industry technology, these analyse grain quality, refreshing the sample every second and identify damaged and cracked grains. The information is used to adjust threshing for optimal quality and output. The chopper camera checks chopping performance, adjusting the stationary knives and friction bar to save fuel when possible, but ensuring the chop action is as aggressive as needed to achieve the required standard. Different weed burdens and moisture content, as well as crop density, will affect the chopper aggression required.

Baler updates Replacing 300-series Variant round balers, the new 400-series will be available for 2017. A 2.35m pick-up is standard and a double roller press ensures an even feed to the rotor.

Roto Feed models include the same spiral design rotor as before, ensuring even crop feed across the chamber width. Roto Cut models have an all-new star rotor, claimed to provide better feed performance of wetter materials, common to the UK and Ireland. A set of 14 knives cuts 6,000 times a minute. The bale chamber is strengthened; reinforced at the front and with new tailgate pivots and the new-design tailgate opens and closes faster allowing bale discharge within six seconds. Net handling is also improved, with a new stainless steel net introduction system; a new spiral spread roller to stretch the net laterally across the bale. New, extra-wide net is available, which stretches over the bale edges providing better weather protection for outdoor stacking. Baler product specialist Dean Cottey commented that the new model upgrades will be popular, whether they are being used for silage or straw, as they have been introduced in direct response to customer demand.

Technology Three new models have been announced for the Quadrant range, including the 4200, 5200 and 5300. The 4200 and 5200 models produce 70x120cm bales and replace current 2200 and 3200 models. The larger 5300 produces 90x120cm bales and replaces the 3300. “There is growing demand for 90x120cm bales,” explained Dean, “and the new continued over...

Automated cleaning Adjusting chop quality is quick and easy using just one lever. Combine product specialist Adam Hayward is pictured.

Cemos automatic cleaning is added, having been a 700-series model option for several years. Grain separation and cleaning adjustment

New Quadrant models for 2017 offer higher bale density and automatic monitoring of chamber pressure and string tension. Chamber pressure can be maintained regardless of swath size and crop quality.

5300 makes bales of greater density and has new technology for higher productivity.” The 5300 is available with optional hydraulic drive to the pick-up, top crop press roller and Power Feed System (PFS) auger. Variable pick-up speed, between 200–260rpm, means operating speed can be matched to the crop; using higher speed for smaller swaths, or reducing it for gentle handling of fragile crops such as lucerne and hay. Reverse drive is an additional benefit allowing the operator to discharge gathered material in the event of a blockage. The new 5300 rotor operates 13 per cent faster than its predecessor and the rotor drive clutch load limit is up 18 per cent while the packer protection clutch is uprated by 12 per cent. The packer ram frequency is 46 strokes per minute as before, but the bale chamber is considerably longer 3.81m increased from 3.45m for higher bale density.

Pressure adjustment Automatic Pressure Control (APC) is a new system, standard on 5200 and 5300 models and optional on the 4200. Constantly measuring knotter tension and stress on the drive system, it maintains maximum bale density and weight, with variable field conditions. The operator simply enters the required bale density and maximum twine load on the Isobus terminal set-up screen and monitoring sensors record the chamber main beam deflection and knotter tension on three of the six knotters. Hydraulic pressure on the bale chamber walls through six rams adjusts resistance as the bale leaves the chamber, maintaining constant density. Also standard on 5200 and 5300 balers, and an option on the 4200, is the new Knotter Control System (KCS). Sensors fitted to all six knotters record stress to detect any string breakages or missed knots. In the event of any deviation from pre-set levels, an alarm alerts the operator to check the knotting system.

Automatic Pressure Control is brand new, monitoring chamber pressures and knotter stress to maintain bale density and weight, regardless of crop quality and volume. The Communicator display makes it easy to monitor performance and adjust settings.

The pre-chamber on Quadrant 5200 and 5300 models helps maintain bale shape and density using electronic monitoring. Only when the pre-chamber is full of material is the slice presented to the main chamber.

New styling distinguishes all three new 2017 models from current versions and specification includes a 2.35m pick-up, with hydraulic suspension and a double crop roller press as well as the Power Feeding System auger as standard equipment. All are available with Roto Feed or the 25-knife Roto Cut systems and, for even shorter chop lengths and mainly in response to demand for poultry bedding and AD plant use, a Fine Cut rotor allows up to 51 knives to be engaged for a theoretical 22mm length of cut, but options include 0, 13, 25, 26 or 51 knife configurations. An optional Special Cut 90-knife unit, with a cutting action similar to that of a combine straw chopper, is available on 5200 and 5300 models. This can be combined with either Roto Cut or Fine Cut chopping systems. The Quadrant 4200 offers higher bale density compared with its predecessor. A pre-chamber ahead of the main chamber has a 3-phase cycle, driven by an oil-immersed gearbox and clutch drive with overload protection. The bale chamber is 15 per cent longer than before, at 345cm, with three pressure rams adjusting resistance as bales move through, propelled by the packer operating at 51 ram strokes per minute. The Quadrant 5200 also has an uprated drive; its packer clutch able to transmit 30 per cent more torque. Ram frequency is 56 strokes per minute, up from 51, allowing faster operating speed. Bale chamber length is 3.81m, up from 3.45 previously. Three pressure rams control bale chamber pressure, and the chamber is fed from a prechamber with electro-hydraulic control of the packing tines to achieve equalsized wafers of material, presented to the packing chamber each time.

Better knotting All new models have upgraded knotters with new-design bill hooks, string guide fingers, clamping plates and discs, providing more reliable tying with stronger knots. Claas has retained

The new knotter design maintains the Claas single knot bale tying strategy to save twine and for ease of removal from the bale, but new the shape ensures knots don’t pull apart under extreme tension.

Baler product specialist Dean Cottey said the updates will appeal to all users, maximising work rates and optimising bale quality.

although it was easy to alter any of the parameters from the in-cab screen, onthe-move. The Communicator screen was clear, logically laid out and easy to adjust, and the new system will prove popular with farmers and contractors who will appreciate its ability to optimise productivity with minimal string and knotter issues.

Efficiency A 2.35m hydraulic-suspended pick-up with a double crop roller press and Power Feeding System (PFS) is standard. Hydraulic drive is a new option, allowing infinitely variable pick-up speed and preventing damage to sensitive crops.

its single knotting, for minimum string waste, but the new knotters produce a better knot shape with a longer loop and tail, to withstand higher tension. Keeping the knotter bank clean is a new hydraulic-powered Turbo Fan system with active air diffusers, similar to the well-proven Lexion Jet Stream design used on combines. Knotter maintenance is easier with a swivel access arrangement and optional LED lighting. All three new balers are Isobus compliant; the Quadrant 5200 and 5300 use the Claas Communicator colour terminal and the Quadrant 4200 has an Operator black and white version, upgradable to the Communicator. All can be controlled using the Easy On-Board app by iPad, or any Isobuscompliant terminal.

Baler technology tested Farmers Guide had the opportunity to test-drive the new Quadrant 5300 equipped with automatic bale density monitoring. Undulating land, and swaths created by two combine harvesters with differentsized headers, meant straw volume and swath thickness varied. With the tractor travelling at constant speed, the required chamber pressure was maintained, regardless of straw volume, without operator intervention,

Claas introduced telematics to its range 10 years ago and its ‘Telematics on Implements’ concept won a Gold award at Agritechnica. Claas UK Easy product manager Edward Miller explained that 95 per cent of the firm’s combines are now producing yield maps via telematics where previously information was stored on memory cards for manual data transfer. There are significant benefits, he explained, in having telematicsbased job recording on tractors and implements as every task is recorded and can be costed and, for contractors, who might be mowing, tedding, raking and harvesting for a client, invoicing is accurate and prompt.

Harvest logistics Recent developments from the company include a Fleet view app, designed for harvest logistics allowing all operators to see all other vehicles. An example was provided for a combine harvester with a fleet of trailer drivers, all able to see the combine’s location on the screen, along with data including the combine grain tank level. Trailer drivers can assess when the combine will need to empty and whether they are positioned suitably in the field, minimising combine waiting time. The iPad-based system means tractor drivers need only data connectivity to use the app, so there are no compatibility issues for those with mixed fleets. The system is being tested this year, but Edward said general availability is expected for 2017 and the annual licence, for up to five trailer users, costs ■ £250.

Combining off-road performance with comfort and safety Jeep’s Cherokee offers plenty of space for family or personnel transport and great off-road capability, with ground clearance the main limiting factor.

There are lots of storage spaces for smaller items, including a handy compartment beneath a lid on the top of the dashboard. Front and rear door pockets are all a reasonable size but space in the front centre console is limited. The glovebox is reasonable but, for a large vehicle likely to be used to carry families for long journeys, it is surprising there isn’t anywhere for larger drink bottles or a sandwich box.


Combining off-road capability with a practical family-friendly design, Jeep’s Cherokee range has a lot to offer. David Williams borrowed one to find out more. The Jeep brand name has long been respected for rugged off-road vehicles but, as user demands have changed together with the price of fuel, its line-up has evolved to include smaller and more environmentally friendly variants. The Cherokee is Jeep’s SUV, its mid-range line-up slotting in between the smaller Renegade and larger Grand Cherokee, combining comfort and safety with great on and off-road performance. The Farmers Guide test vehicle was a Cherokee Limited with a 4-cyl, 2.2-litre, 200hp engine and automatic 9-speed transmission. The range includes four trim levels and five

engines including; 2.0-litre 140 and 170hp, 2.2-litre 185 and 200hp and a 3.2-litre V-6 petrol unit producing 272hp. The latest Cherokee is well designed with plenty of interior space and, for those using it primarily for family or personnel transport, its 5-star EuroNCAP safety rating is reassuring. The Limited trim specification includes soft leather seats, the fronts benefitting from 8-way electric adjustment with onetouch memory settings for the driver. Seat heating and ventilation are standard and, during the hottest week of the summer when the car was with us, the ability to direct chilled air

through pores in the seat cushion and backrest was an asset. The seats are large, comfortable and supportive and the adjustment available is excellent. There is plenty of head and legroom for taller drivers. The rear seat comfortably accommodates three adults but splits 60/40 and, when it isn’t being used, either or both sections can be slid forward providing more space behind for cargo or luggage. For maximum boot space the rear seats can be folded flat, providing up to 1,267 litres load capacity. Under the rear load area are storage compartments, although on the test vehicle this space housed the optional spare wheel, and meant the loadspace floor was quite high for loading heavy items.

As far as technology is concerned the test car was loaded. Standard equipment includes a large 8.4in touch-screen for navigation, media, seat temperature and mobile phone and which also displays the image from the rear camera. Also standard are automatic lights and main beam switching, an automatic-diming rearview mirror and dual-zone climate control with humidity sensing. Options included a technology pack, incorporating parallel and perpendicular parking assistance, blind spot monitoring – which alerts the driver to other vehicles alongside by illuminating door mirror-mounted indicators, lane departure and forward collision warning as well as active cruise control. Active cruise control allows a maximum travel speed to be set and maintained unless another vehicle is in front, within a specified distance. If the gap becomes smaller the Cherokee slows down, applying brakes if necessary and, when the car in front pulls away again, the continued over...

t The rear load bed is high but the rear door provides good access. q The dashboard is well finished and the vehicle is loaded with technology including an 8.4in touch-screen. The speedometer and rev counter retain similarities to those of 1980s Jeeps, but are clear and attractive.

speed automatically resumes the pre-set maximum. This works well but on busy British roads where traffic constantly moves across lanes, it can react too frequently to be comfortable. Lacking a driver’s ability to assess situations, it often delays accelerating again until several seconds after the road becomes clear, during which time a driver would usually react faster to make progress. However, its continuous monitoring of the road in front provides additional safety should the driver be momentarily distracted.

Good performance The test vehicle’s 2.2-litre engine generates its maximum 200hp at 3,500rpm, and maximum 440Nm torque at 2,500rpm. Driving through the 9-speed automatic transmission, it offers brisk acceleration when called

Access for servicing is excellent. The bonnet opens wide making it easy to topup the engine oil and windscreen fluid.

upon, but is leisurely and relaxed otherwise, while plenty of overlap between gears makes changes barely noticeable apart from during hard acceleration, when the engine note becomes harsher. Moving the transmission lever to the left provides manual gear selection for full driver control. During the week-long test covering approximately 400 miles, most driving was at higher speeds on main roads but a quarter was on winding B-roads and off-road farm tracks. Average fuel consumption over the test week was a very impressive 42.6mpg. Jeep’s Active Drive 4x4 system automatically disengages the rear axle when traction from the front wheels is adequate, saving fuel. A variable wet clutch in the rear drive module provides progressive action and, fully automated, it distributes power between the axles and between the wheels, using individual wheel braking to obtain maximum traction. In common with other vehicles in its class, the Cherokee’s driver can select a traction mode to match the conditions. A dial beside the gear selector provides optimised settings for snow, sport, sand and mud, although the standard control provided by the ‘Automatic’ setting

Ground clearance is 157mm, which will be adequate for most situations but the bodywork overhang front and rear could make contact when negotiating uneven ground.

is more than adequate for most situations. The test car had 225/55R18 tyres which gripped well on damp roads and dirt tracks. The Cherokee handles well, feels stable at speed on tight bends and gives a good ride on all surfaces from rutted farm tracks to motorways. The suspension is excellent, comprising McPherson struts and coil springs on the front and 4-link trailing arms on the rear, but was surprisingly noisy when pot-holes were encountered at speed on main roads, generating comments from passengers.

Verdict Jeep’s Cherokee is very comfortable and ideal for those needing a large family vehicle capable of doing the school run, but travelling off-road on the farm when needed. The 4wd

system’s capabilities are considerable and provide reassurance for those without off-road experience, even when the weather makes conditions quite tricky. Limiting factors include 157mm ground clearance along with shallow slope approach and departure angles. The overhang from the front and rear bumpers to the wheels needed watching when crossing verges into fields, and when traversing deep ruts from larger farm vehicles. But these limitations are minor for most potential users and, if greater capability off-road is needed, then Jeep’s Grand Cherokee might be a more suitable option. The economy and performance of the 4-cyl, 2.2-litre engine proved superb and the flexibility provided by the high torque and 9-speed automatic transmission means the vehicle will easily handle the maximum 2,495kg trailer weight. The price for the Cherokee Limited as tested is £37,245 and options including the Technology pack, a full-length sunroof, special paint and a spare wheel added £4,590. For farm use, we would suggest the full size spare wheel at £265 is a good investment and the all-season floor mat set and heated steering wheel at a combined price of £225 would be useful additions too. ■

Crop protection and green harvest product updates

New products launched by Kuhn at a German press event included the Deltis 2 mounted sprayer, with a 1,300-litre tank and 15–24m booms.

Kuhn launched new disc mowers and mower-conditioners at the event, all with Lift Control suspension, which combines suspension with break-back protection in a single unit.

Kuhn demonstrated new and updated products from its mounted sprayer and green harvesting ranges at an exclusive press launch in Germany. David Williams reports.

Disc mowers

The Deltis 2 mounted sprayer has been designed for livestock and mixed farms and has a 1,300-litre tank. Boom width options are 15–24m, including 21–24m in alloy. The new Deltis 2 replaces the current Deltis range, which was available in 800-, 1,000- and 1,200-litre capacities, but the company explained its decision to offer just one size of new model, as 80 per cent of demand previously was for the 1,200-litre version. The sprayer has an L-shaped chassis, keeping weight well forward, and allowing use with smaller tractors and the simple design makes it one of the lightest on the market, according to the manufacturer. The boom is mounted on a parallelogram linkage with spring suspension and a nitrogen accumulator provides damping. Pipework is stainless steel, and the nozzle bodies are protected within the boom frame to prevent damage. Section filters replace individual nozzle filters for reduced maintenance and fewer blockages. The tank has a double-slope sump for total emptying even on steep slopes. Two main valves select working and filling modes, making operation

simple and minimising length of pipework ensuring less retained fluid after draining.

Space saving design A brand new induction bowl saves weight and space. Made from flexible, chemical resistant material, the Optifiller folds flat against the side of the sprayer when not in use. For filling, the user simply folds out the 42-litre bowl, from its stored vertical position to horizontal and fills the sprayer normally, through the large 40cm opening. In common with other Kuhn sprayers the new induction bowl uses foot control to incorporate chemical so the operator doesn’t need to bend over the machine. A hand-lance is used for rinsing the bowl and spray containers and the lid prevents splash-back. Kuhn product specialists explained that testing has demonstrated the material’s working life to be up to 15 times that of a typical sprayer. It is also totally resistant to the most aggressive chemicals. The new Deltis 2 will be available from September this year and options include new blue LED boom lighting.

The novel Optifiller chemical inductor has a collapsible bowl. For transport, it folds vertically against the side of the sprayer tank, minimising width, and for use it is opened to its horizontal position. Performance with liquids and powders is the same as that of a standard rigid bowl and it is totally resistant to the most aggressive chemicals.

Kuhn launched new disc mowers at the event, a new GMD 1011 series replacing previous GD1010 models. The 1011 mowers are Kuhn’s base line-up, designed primarily for livestock farms where ease of use, reliability and the ability to harvest clean forage are priorities. The range includes the GMD2811, GMD3511, GMD4011 and GMD4411, where the first two digits indicate cutting width. Lift-Control suspension is standard, offering ground contour following with pendulum-type articulation and break-back protection. If the mower strikes a solid object, it pivots back on its frame and, if travel exceeds 11 degrees, hydraulic oil is forced from the suspension cylinder to the lift cylinder, causing the mower to lift clear of the ground as travel continues up to 23 degrees. The movement geometry means discs and blades are protected along with the frame. The new mowers provide higher clearance during headland turns and transport, and a larger offset adjustment range allows for different tractor sizes and ensures optimal matching with a front mower. Revised linkage mounting points mean the tractor linkage doesn’t need adjustment to compensate for the offset mower weight and the mower automatically assumes its medium cutting height position when switching to working position without the need to adjust the top link. The proven Optidisc cutter bar is fitted, including beveled knives, and discs with converging rotation. The cutter bar mounting is rubber mounted, reducing transmitted vibration and Protectadrive provides drive-train protection. Quick release

The GMD1011 series mowers feature LiftControl suspension and are available in working widths of 2.67, 3.10, 3.50, 3.95 and 4.35m.

Lift-Control suspension uses two hydraulic rams, one for folding and one for suspension, mounted within a parallelogram linkage. If the mower is pushed back further than 11 degrees, oil forced from the suspension ram enters the lifting ram, combining backward and lifting movement in one motion. After passing the obstruction the mower returns automatically to its working position.

FC 244, FC 284 and FC 314 mowerconditioners incorporate Lift-Control and offer higher clearance for headland turns, and larger offset range, than previous models.

blades minimise downtime. Kuhn’s FC104 range of mowerconditioners is available in working widths of 2.4, 2.8 and 3.1m. Lift-Control is standard and advantages of the new models over the previous FC103 range include higher clearance for headland turns, a greater range of offset (up to 19cm) and automatic setting at 45/50mm medium cutting height when switched into working position, without top link adjustment. There are three conditioner options; roller - particularly attractive for those growing alfalfa, pivoting steel fingers or V-shaped nylon fingers. The rotor speed is adjustable offering a reduced speed for delicate crops. continued over...

A new triple-mower is available, and ideal for those without high capacity tractors. The GMD9530 and GMD10030 models are 9.53m and 9.93m respectively, and complement the current 8.73m GMD8730 model. Adjustable offset provides up to 50cm overlap on each side compensating for turning and sideslopes. New mower-conditioners were introduced in the series last year, also available in John Deere colours, but the new mower-only versions are exclusive to Kuhn. Vertical folding for transport allows use with medium-sized tractors, as there is little rear overhang. Lift-Control is standard, each side having individual protection and adjustable ground contour following. The GMD953 is designed to work with a 3.1m front mower and the larger GMD10030 is designed to suit the GMD3525F front mower with a 3.5m working width.

Both rakes are Isobus compatible, allowing operation from suitably equipped tractors or from Kuhn’s own VT50 or CCI200 terminals. All functions are controlled from the cab, including folding and unfolding, adjustment of windrow width and raking height. Manoeuvre sequencing is programmable so, for example, a constant lift height can be set for headland turns. One-button folding and unfolding adds convenience, and there are no arms or guards requiring manual fixing, although transport height remains under 4m. Swath width is adjustable

Complementing mower-conditioner versions launched last year, new high output 9.53 and 9.93m twin rear mowers have been introduced in response to demand for high work-rates for those with smaller tractors.

Kuhn has added new 4-rotor Gyrorakes with Isobus control to its line-up. Hydraulic drive allows rotor speed to be varied infinitely to suit the crop and conditions. Test users have found that running the front rotors faster than the rear provides a better swath in some situations. Maximum benefit was gained in dense crops when the fluffy and even swath was more easily processed by the forage harvester, resulting in significantly increased work rates.

from 1.2–1.8m. Hydraulic-driven rotors allow a speed differential between front and rear rake units. Oil flow is from headstock-mounted hydraulic pumps, and lower link hitch points allow a constant straight PTO angle, regardless of the rake’s position relative to the tractor. Operating the front rotors at a higher speed than the rear accelerates the crop to enhance windrow formation, and Kuhn explained that trials of the system in dense forage have shown benefits for following operations. In particular, forage harvester operators reported significantly improved work rates made possible by the even quality of material and its distribution. Greater rotor articulation is possible than with shaft drives and Kuhn’s 3D rotor suspension mount, and wheels close to the tines, provides accurate ground following. Stabilift is also standard, locking rotor positions for windrow clearance and transport, as well as locking the pivoting wheels to protect plant cover on headlands and during turns. Apart from operating advantages, hydraulic drive reduces maintenance requirements (rotors need greasing just once a year for typical farm users), and saves component wear with less shock loading when tines encounter obstructions. A six LED light option will assist those working late into the evening and a camera monitoring kit is available, with wiring already installed. Air or hydraulic brakes are available. Kuhn said a 110hp tractor will easily handle the new large rake in flat conditions, with 150–200hp needed on hilly ground. The new rake is available now, with Isobus compatibility from September this year. Isobus control can be retrofitted for similar rakes already in use; the main advantage being tractor joystick control. ■ 09R17B

Tackle troubles, don’t ignore them

The TerraStar in action.

The light rotary cultivator, redesigned from the machines seen in the 1980s, is coming back into fashion as growers look for more effective methods of stubble management and black-grass, weed, volunteer and slug control. That’s according to Claydon Drills, which reintroduced the concept earlier this year with the launch of its 6m TerraStar, a low-cost, high-output shallow rotary cultivator that can cover 90ha (225 acres) per day behind a 150hp tractor using less than 200 litres of diesel. Jeff Claydon says: “Growers have been quick to recognise the benefits of the TerraStar as a valuable weapon in their armoury against black-grass,

cereal volunteers, brome grass and other weeds. “They acknowledge its role in creating a shallow tilth and stale seedbed prior to direct and strip drilling, min-till or conventional establishment, and for working land down after it’s been cultivated or ploughed.” The TerraStar uses two banks of cross-blade rotors that move slightly more soil than a Claydon Straw Harrow but less than conventional tine cultivators or disc-type implements, which, says Jeff, create too much fine tilth and present a significant weather risk either by drying out or turning soils slushy.

Instead, the TerraStar creates just enough tilth to encourage volunteers and weeds to chit, while helping with slug control, drainage and the incorporation of manures or root-crop residues. The key to the machine’s effectiveness is said to be its 68 rotating star-shaped points that are fitted to the two knife bars in a 200mm grid pattern. These cut 80mm2 divots from the top layer of soil to create a shallow cultivation effect, which has the appearance of an egg tray if the surface soil is brushed away. The series of small peaks and hollows that the points create leaves the soil surface largely intact and able to support the weight of following machinery, as well as helping drainage. Because of the implement’s high operating speed of 15–20kph, the rotating blades produce thousands of miniature plugs that create a wave of surface tilth about 30mm deep, depending on soil type and conditions. This provides an ideal highhumidity environment in which volunteers and grass weeds

germinate quickly that can subsequently be moved by the Claydon Straw Harrow, breaking germinating plants off at the one-leaf stage and eliminating the need to spray while ground conditions allow harrowing, Jeff points out. Claydon Drills will be exhibiting the TerraStar at Tillage-Live.

South west dealer The company has also appointed Hamblys, one of the largest agricultural machinery suppliers in the south west, to handle sales and service of Claydon Hybrid mounted and trailed drills, TerraStar cultivators, straw harrows and Cambridge rolls in Cornwall, Devon and part of Somerset. Established in 1892, Hamblys remains a family-owned business. The main Claas dealer in the south west, it has an excellent reputation for supplying quality products, supported by excellent service from its five purpose-built branches, which are located at Launceston, Redruth and Whitstone in Cornwall, Honiton in Devon, together with Bishops Lydeard in Somerset.

Feed target achieved through attention to detail AG Lambert & Partners’ Pottinger grassland machinery fleet Hit 8.81 tedder

Maintaining grass-based feed quality for a high-output Hampshire dairy herd requires careful management, especially when the land supplying the crop is drought-susceptible chalk downland. David Williams reports. “Good genetics enable us to achieve high milk yields from our herd, but the food has to be right up there too,” explained Stockbridge farmer Clive Redshaw when Farmers Guide visited the farm in August. Trading as AG Lambert & Partners, the farm is a traditional mixed unit, with arable crops and grassland on 485ha (1,200 acres). The farm’s dairy herd was established in the early 1970s and is a closed unit, breeding its own replacements. The 180-head Holstein herd achieves milk yields of 11,700 litres per cow annually, but maintaining this impressive figure requires skilled herd management and a constant supply of high quality feed. “Some of our fields have just 6–8in of soil, so we can’t grow grass all year,” said Clive. “The summers are just too dry and we rely on first and second cuts of silage to achieve sufficient forage.” Arable crops include a lot of spring barley on the more chalky land, first wheats and oilseed rape as well as maize. Feed wheats are fed as caustic wheat, which is added to the mix on-farm with 6t required per week, and the remaining yield is supplied to a central store. Three full-time staff are employed; two primarily for the arable crops and one stockman, although roles are flexible to provide cover during busy periods. A contract milker is used. “We try to do everything else ourselves, using contractors only for maize drilling and harvesting,” explained Clive.

Brand decision easy Two years ago, when the farm’s trailed forage harvester was due for replacement, Clive visited the Grassland event to look at options. Very wet conditions meant most demonstrations had ceased, but he

was impressed to see the Pottinger machinery working. “We were familiar with the brand but hadn’t operated it and spoke with Rodney Dingle, the sales manager who looks after our area,” said Clive. “Working conditions at the event were awful but the Pottinger products coped, and Rodney’s interest in our operation and knowledge of the processes involved gave us great confidence. He explained features and benefits, and suggested we consider moving away from a forage harvester-based system to a loader wagon, and we left the event considering which would suit us best, but knowing we would be buying Pottinger.” The forage loader wagon’s build quality and design features had impressed Clive, and he commented he would have liked to have bought one just to admire in the yard. However, although most of the farm’s land is in a block, the time taken to return to the clamp for unloading would slow the harvesting operation so the decision was made to retain the current trailer transport regime.

Timing critical for quality “Our high input, high output herd means silage quality is critical and we have to harvest grass at the optimal time. This is why we don’t use contractors for the grass harvest; having to wait a few days or cut earlier than we would like would result in compromises, while doing everything ourselves gives us full control. We want to take the first cut in early May, just before the crop becomes stalky and definitely before it goes to seed, and we want the ability to control moisture content as it enters the clamp. The second cut is usually five weeks after. Maize isn’t such an issue; a few days either

One of Clive’s favourite design features is the cam-adjusted offset mode, allowing the tedder to run at an offset angle for headlands, throwing forage into the field rather than the hedge.

Having decided to purchase the new Pottinger Mex 6 forage harvester, Clive was keen to improve his operation further where possible; “We had always used a rake to move and row the grass, but we compromised when we brought in the forage harvester as lower parts of the swath were often wetter than the top. We considered that by the time it was chopped and mixed in the clamps then the average would be ok, but then we looked at the advantages a tedder would provide. Most contractors use them to help control crop condition and if it meant we could achieve constant quality throughout the swath, that had to be an advantage. We ordered our first tedder; a Pottinger Hit 8.81 and the Top 612C twin-rotor rake with the forage harvester, as a package,” he said. The new machinery arrived for the first cut of 2015, and Clive was immediately delighted with the

Built-in steps on the Mex 6 trailed forage harvester make maintenance easy. The hydraulic folding spout is a great improvement on the previous machine, which required a telescopic handler to lower the assembly after removing a selection of nuts and bolts.

improved performance. Using the tedder to spread cut and conditioned grass evenly provided controlled drying before swathing by rake, and the resulting rows fed evenly into the forage harvester without volume and density variations which had restricted capacity in the past. Previously trailers were loaded at the rear of the harvester, then hitched to tractors for transport to the clamp, but the increased rate of work behind the same 170hp tractor meant trailers filled faster and the trailed regime was quickly abandoned in favour of side loading for reduced down-time.

Clean with no losses With every achievable tonne of silage needed, the 60ha (148 acres) of grass sward is carefully prepared and protected and grass leys are down for two years in the rotation with half re-drilled each year. The land is almost stone free but is flat-rolled after drilling and at the start of each season. “Soil continued over...

contamination is something we won’t accept,” commented Clive. “We specified optional front ‘Multitast’ contour wheels for the rake, which lift the whole rotor frame when they encounter uneven ground keeping tines clear, and these were a good investment. After harvesting, we could see the rake had gathered everything cleanly with minimal losses, despite the clean swath.” With silage quality the main concern, Clive said the higher rate of harvesting saves a day and a half compared to the previous system, increasing flexibility in terms of weather windows. “We are no longer trying to look ahead for a week’s dry weather,” he said. “Now, we can look for 4–5 days instead, which makes a big difference. If conditions are too dry we row the grass and, if wet, then spreading it speeds drying. Last year and this, we finished harvesting a day before the weather broke and previously this would have lost us quality where now the feed was safe in the clamp.”

Rocket fuel Feed analysis is carried out regularly, and the farm works closely with Salisbury-based Kite Consulting to monitor nutrition. “The quality is better than our nutritionist had thought achievable, including dry matter of approximately 75 per cent, where our target was 69–72 and metabolisable energy of 12.0MJ/kg dm against a target of 11.0–11.5,” said Clive. “In fact, even though the figures for this year’s crop are impressive, last year’s were even better but we suffered a little earlier this year with reduced sunlight. Consistency and quality have improved palatability too, and the cattle clearly love it. What we are making now is close to rocket fuel!”

Gentle handling Lucerne was grown this year, for the first time since 1972, and Clive commented the Pottinger machinery’s gentle crop handling is what encouraged him to try it again. “We were told to handle it as little as possible, so operated the tedder at the lowest PTO speed; just 380rpm, pulled it back in with the rake at low speed, then baled rather than using the forage harvester. Losses were minimal, and we had the fodder analysed by our nutritionist who rated it very highly. We wouldn’t have tried it again if it hadn’t been for the Pottinger equipment and we will grow it in future, ” he said.

Superb back-up Local main dealer TH White provides after-sales service from its depot nearby. The dealer took on the

Pottinger franchise earlier this year and Simon Pratt, who looks after the farm’s account, is delighted with the range. “The quality is superb and the small design features make such a difference,” he said. “The rake’s stand arrangement is simpler than many others making hitching and removal from the tractor safe and fast, and the mower incorporates a knife drawer so spares are always to hand when needed. The paint finish is definitely the best available maintaining condition, and enhancing future resale values. “Our area manager, Rodney Dingle, is passionate about the range and knows it inside out. Parts back-up is great too and after-sales representatives came from Pottinger

UK to train our stores staff on-site to ensure they were confident with the systems. The Pottinger UK and factory teams are excellent and seem very happy, which is reflected in the quality of machines produced.” Clive said his experience of Pottinger grassland products, and their availability from the local dealer means he will consider the brand for more than just grassland equipment in future. “The company impressed us from when we first saw the products at Grassland to the follow-up during the season,” he said. “When our current mower-conditioner is updated, a Pottinger will replace it, and the company’s arable range will also be considered in future. We have a long-standing relationship with TH

Dealer back in after 60 years

Estate owner Henry FitzRoy, 12th Duke of Grafton (left) and James Thurlow at the handover of the Fendt 700-series tractors, with a 1950’s Nuffield, similar to the last agricultural tractor purchased by the estate from the dealer.

The purchase of two new Fendt 700 Vario-series tractors by a Suffolk estate, 60 years after it last bought a new farm tractor from the same dealer, was marked in late July. David Williams was at the handover. Euston Farms in north Suffolk comprises approximately 2,500ha (6,215 acres) farmed in-hand and crops include wheat, barley, maize, rye and sugar beet along with vegetables grown in partnership with RG Abrey Farms. Other enterprises include an anaerobic digester plant, outdoor pigs and free-range poultry and the farm has its own herd of Red Poll cattle, with Suffolk Punch horses and Suffolk sheep completing the ‘Suffolk Trinity’. Large areas of grassland support HLS agreements and provide animal grazing. The two new tractors are a 716 Vario Profi and a 722 Vario ProfiPlus. The 220hp 722 is replacing a 210hp tractor of another brand and will be used for cultivations, most of the drilling, corn carting and to spread digestate from the farm’s AD plant, and is expected to work

Thurlow Nunn Standen (TNS) is a long-established Agco dealer, but the last agricultural tractor supplied to Euston Farms was a Nuffield in 1956. Managing director James Thurlow was at the farm to hand over the two new Fendts and said he was delighted to have supplied the machines; “Our family has been in the agricultural machinery business since 1875 and my father, John Thurlow, said he can remember my grandfather negotiating orders for machinery, including Nuffield

tractors, at the Corn Exchange in Bury St Edmunds. He would retire to a private room (The Oak Room), which is now known as the Cupola House, to share a drink with representatives from the estate with the 10th Duke of Grafton also present. Things have moved on in the way deals are agreed, but I am delighted that this new order has continued the long trading relationship between our companies and I am confident the estate and users will be impressed by the new Fendts as well as our after-sales service,” he said. ■

approximately 1,200hrs per year. The smaller 716 is an additional tractor. “Its size and 165hp makes it very versatile, but one of the main reasons for the purchase is extra flexibility to make the most of by-products from the AD plant,” commented farm manager Matthew Hawthorne. “When we are under pressure during busy periods we tend to transport digestate to locations which are most convenient, but the extra machine will allow us to optimise use of the valuable organic matter on land wherever it is needed including further from the yard.” Matthew said the farm considered Fendt tractors several years ago, but had believed other brands would work out cheaper. However, the estate’s involvement in a three week test of the smaller 313 Vario for Farmers Guide (see May edition)

had rekindled interest in the brand. “We looked again at the figures as well as the back-up available from our local main dealer, Thurlow Nunn Standen, which we knew had a very good reputation,” he explained. “The main operator of the Fendt 313 we tested very much liked the machine and found it easy to use, and he was keen to move to a Fendt when his own tractor was replaced. We spoke with the dealer representatives and agreed what seems a sensible package for us.”

Suffolk-based K&M Tyres has earned Michelin’s seal of approval for its agricultural tyre work, becoming the latest member of the manufacturer’s Exelagri dealer partnership programme. To qualify for Exelagri status

the dealer had to pass a stringent independent 48-point quality audit which looks at key aspects of the business, from the cleanliness of the workshop and the standard of equipment used to levels of staff training and the quality of advice given to its customers. K&M Tyres director Mark Bond says: “Having this industryrecognised standard further demonstrates to our customers, who associate Michelin with professionalism, that one of the world’s biggest brands is willing to give us its backing. “Customers can also be safe in the knowledge that our technicians have the right expertise to ensure

they derive maximum performance from their agricultural tyres.” K&M Tyres has pledged to offer an extensive range of Michelin products and services, 24/7 breakdown support, quality tyre repairs and wheel alignment checks and has the ability to fit tyres both on-site and in the field. The company must also offer a tyre delivery service, backed by the provision of expert technical advice and after-sales support. The Michelin Exelagri dealer network was created in 2004 and boasts almost 800 farm tyre specialists carefully selected by Michelin across Europe, of which 47 are in the UK and Republic of

Ireland. As part of the programme Michelin pledges to support its members with tools and services such as City & Guilds-accredited training courses. K&M Tyres was established in 2005 and covers the whole of East Anglia for agricultural and commercial vehicle tyre advice and support. Operating from its site in Elmswell, Bury St Edmunds, it employs six technicians certified for agricultural work and runs a fleet of six mobile service vans. A 24/7 breakdown service is on offer to farmers during peak periods, such as harvest. ■

Discounts are available for the first buyers of the Betimax RDS-P.

Trailer discounts Agricultural trailer specialist Joskin is launching a new model of livestock trailer and offering a discount on the first 100 models it sells. The Betimax RDS-P combines the advantages of the Betimax RDS, such as its reclining system and sprung drawbar, and the Betimax R, including quality green paint and

chequered plate floor. The Betimax RDS-P is painted in green, rather than being galvanised, and is fitted with grey rims. The chequered plate floor has no resin. There are four sizes catering from 7–8 animals up to 12–14. With the discount, the RDS-P livestock trailers will be the price of the R models.

STRAW BURNING BIOMASS BOILERS Coventry based company specialising in bespoke biomass boilers for the agricultural industry


What we can offer?

What tariff can I claim?

Our most popular boiler is a 600kw unit this can accept 2 large square bales. The large chamber means filling is less frequent. The package is self contained and consists of large buffer tank, flue, flue filtration system and plant room. Registered for RHI, our boilers have appropriate emissions certificates to burn a range of straws and timber to gain the RHI! We also provide containerised drying rigs that are simply craned on site and couple to our boiler. These are a perfect companion for the straw boiler delivering vast volumes of hot air for a range of RHI eligible drying applications. Rigs come complete with pipework controls and electrics including a fantastic soft start inverter, we have managed to install and run on the most remote and limited power supplies.

Our 300, 400, 500, 600kw boilers are eligible for medium scale biomass at 5.24 pence and this tariff has yet to see any digressions. One client has received over £42,000 in RHI and the installation has only been operational for 6 months.

What can I use the heat for? To date we have used our boilers to heat on floor & counterflow grain dryers, poultry sheds, district heating systems, houses, farm work shops & commercial units.

How much straw will I use? Fuel consumption may differ depending on quality, but we estimate a 600 kW boiler will use 250 ton per annum to achieve optimum RHI.

How much is my straw worth? 1 ton of straw could earn £168 in RHI.

How much could a system earn? 600kw RHI income over 20 years £826,243 (based on tier 1 only)

What size is the 600kw loading chamber? 2900x1900x1580mm

Farming moving with the times

High-tech responses to rural crime The amount of rural crime has remained generally static in 2015, with farmers and police adopting high-tech security measures to tackle increasingly sophisticated criminals who are turning to computers rather than bolt cutters. That’s the verdict of NFU Mutual’s annual Rural Crime Report, published in August, which shows that the cost of rural crime to the UK economy has reached £42.5 million a year. However a regional breakdown reveals that there are still winners and losers in the war on rural Regional costs Region Northern Ireland Midlands North West South West North East Wales East Scotland South East

The Yorkshire-based machinery importer and precision farming business Manterra is celebrating, having been selected as a supplier to Selby-based Stockbridge Technology Centre (STC) in a new innovation centre for crop health and protection. The new innovation centre, CHAP, is part of the Government’s Agri-Tech strategy, which was launched in 2013 to ensure that its investment in agriculture delivers material benefits for society and the economy in the UK and overseas. CHAP is expected to lead the way in developing solutions to the challenges facing world agriculture, bringing together the best expertise, knowledge and insight from leading research organisations and industries in the sector. It should give farmers and growers access to the best and most sustainable technologies, strategies and protocols to improve crop performance. CHAP has secured £21.3 million of government investment over four years and will have its headquarters at the National Agri-Food Innovation campus at Sand Hutton near York. Manterra founder Andrew Manfield says: “This is a good way

crime (see table). In the survey of NFU Mutual agents, the majority also reported that thieves in their area are becoming more sophisticated in the way they operate, and that cyber-crime is a growing concern. NFU Mutual rural affairs specialist Tim Price says: “Farmers have to regularly update security measures at considerable cost to keep high-tech criminals at bay. They’re using tracker devices on tractors, video and infra-red surveillance in their yards and even DNA markers to protect sheep from rustlers.”

Bigger-capacity reel irrigator Growers looking for greater area coverage from a single reel irrigator have a new option in the Bauer Rainstar E55 XL, the new flagship model in the range. Available with 125 or 140mmdiameter high-quality PE pipe made in the company’s Austrian factory, the E55 XL can cover up to 7.7 hectares (19.2 acres) per run, or twice that area by performing two runs from a central position by rotating the turntable reel. A robust galvanised steel chassis and integral hydraulic ground anchor keep the drum stable in spite of the driving torque needed to reel in the hose. A high pulling force, up to 40 per cent greater than with some irrigation reels, is generated by Bauer’s top-ofthe-range and highly-efficient TVR 60 radial water turbine, working in conjunction with a 4-speed gearbox, a 1.5in drive chain and large-diameter laser-cut sprocket. The turbine’s design and precision assembly ensures it operates with very little water pressure loss, while the Vario variable-output nozzle exploits what pressure is available by delivering full stream flow over the turbine’s impeller at all settings. 09R38B

In combination with the computer control system installed, the variable water nozzle maintains a constant hose retraction speed from the beginning of the strip to the end. For highest volumes, the Rainstar E55 XL is available with 140mm Bauer PE pipe in 500, 530 and 560m lengths, delivering up to 110m3/hr and capable of irrigating more than 6ha (15 acres) per draw at a swath width of 110m. The 125mm hose is available in 680, 710 and 740m lengths, delivering up to 70m3/hr across irrigation swaths up to 100m wide. The new irrigator is controlled as standard by the Bauer Ecostar 4300 controller, but the new Ecostar 6000 is an option, providing more advanced features including a 4.3in LED touchscreen for entering and adjusting settings. The Ecostar 6000 can store up to 12 different irrigation programmes that define retraction speed, preirrigation, post-irrigation and speed zones, and collects operational data transferable to farm records. The Rainstar E55 XL can also be managed through Bauer’s SmartRain mobile device app, which provides remote monitoring, alerts and control functions. ■

The Rainstar E55 XL is now the largest reel irrigator in the Bauer range.

Norfolk cultivations demonstration set for success Norfolk Farm Machinery Club, known as NORMAC, is holding this year’s cultivations demonstration on 8th September, returning to Hardingham Farms after a 10-year absence. The farm is said to be a typical mid-Norfolk estate, running to 1,040ha (2,600 acres), with soil types ranging from sand to loam, mostly grade 2 and 3. The demo is being held over 80ha (200 acres) of the farm’s easternmost fields, close to the village of Kimberley, and will feature a wide selection of cultivation and establishment machinery from more than 50 manufacturers, in addition to sprayers, soil-mapping technology, tractors, farm buildings and crop-storage systems. Given the nature of the Norfolk soil, most, if not all, the machinery will be working, no matter how heavy the rainfall the night before, say the organisers. This year, as over the past five years or so, much of the focus will be on black-grass control. In response, there

will be a number of machines on show designed to produce that all-important seedbed. Great emphasis is also being made nowadays on soil condition. With the landowner’s kind permission, a number of soil profile test pits will be dug around the site to assess the underlying condition of the soils on the farm, and to see whether a number of cultivation techniques are having the desired effects. This should be of interest to exhibitors and their customers alike. One of the areas has already been sown with a cover crop to demonstrate their effects on soil structure. Soil science experts will be on hand with their interpretations.

Host farm William Edwards is the sixth generation to farm Hardingham Farms, which has been in the same family since 1826. Much has changed in the 10 years since the estate last hosted the NORMAC demonstration. For example, in 2006 the farm was still very much

under the plough. Today most of the cultivations are done with a Simba Solo, the plough only coming into use rotationally on the heavier land to help with black-grass control. Farm manager Paul Myhill has only been with the farm for a relatively short time, but is already keen to introduce some changes. He and William are therefore keen to see some of the machinery demonstrated for themselves, and hopefully keep some of it on their farm after the event. Current cropping on the farm includes winter wheat, hybrid winter barley, oilseed rape, winter and spring beans and sugar beet. About 26ha (65 acres) are let for packing potato production.

Much of the farm is still in HLS and ELS until the current schemes expire. In an effort to keep organic matter content up, a straw-for-muck deal with a local pig producer and the use of poultry manure on oilseed rape and sugar beet keeps the land in good heart. In order to keep up with current agricultural thinking and to benchmark itself, the farm is part of the AHTB Farm Forum. Paul is very much hands-on, and is assisted by two other members of staff, plus extra help at harvest time. Seed is drilled with a Vaderstad, while most of the horsepower is provided by a Challenger 775E, together with two Massey Ferguson tractors. ■

A wide selection of cultivation and establishment machinery from more than 50 manufacturers will be on show at NORMAC.

Higher-spec than you might expect The Landini tractor range may be bestknown for the smaller livestock farmer models in its line-up, but at NORMAC’s event mid-Norfolk dealer Cranworth Farm Services will emphasise the range’s high-power arable tractor credentials. The Landini 6-175 Roboshift Dynamic being demonstrated is the top model in a range of advanced 4-cylinder tractors that can be equipped with all the latest technologies to promote top field performance, productivity and operator appeal and comfort. Granted benefits from its fingertip-operated spool valves for the load-sensing 123-litre/min hydraulics system to the integrated GPS steering, operators certainly shouldn’t feel shortchanged when they spend a day at the wheel of a 6 series Dynamic. Landini area sales manager Tim Lawrence says: “When you take into

account the simple and logical layout of the seat-mounted control console, the auto features of the 24x24 semipowershift transmission, and the smooth-riding comfort of the cab and independent front axle suspension, this is a tractor to be enjoyed as well as to be worked hard.” The 6-175 Roboshift to be seen at the NORMAC demo is one of three models in the 6 series. Its 4.5-litre FPT engine develops 166hp for draft work, but pumps out up to 175hp for PTO and transport applications. The other two models have 143 and 160hp maximum for all operations. Glyn Brown of Cranworth Farm Services plans to demonstrate the tractor’s first-rate torque and traction by pairing it with a Teagle Multidisc Vario cultivator, an implement with two gangs of angled discs with soil-loosening tines between them. A particular feature is that the legs can

be lifted out of work hydraulically to avoid unnecessary power and fuel consumption in fields that only need surface cultivation. With its 4-speed PTO system fitted as standard, the 6-175 Roboshift is also well-equipped to drive powered implements such as power harrows, tillers and balers. A choice of 540 or 1,000rpm shaft speeds delivered at ‘power’ or ‘economy’ engine speeds obtain the optimum performance and fuel consumption for each application. A creep gearbox can be added for specialist equipment requiring very low operating speeds. Alternatively, where there’s a need for more power or greater stability with heavy rearmounted implements, Landini offers the 6-cylinder 7 series tractors, which have the same equipment, features and styling, but bigger engines spanning outputs from 160–212hp. While much of the focus of

The Landini 6-175 Roboshift.

Cranworth Farm Services’ presence at the NORMAC event will be on the top-end tractor, Landini’s prowess at producing smaller machines isn’t being overlooked. The 90hp 4-090 tractor on static display is part of a new seven-model range from 64–107hp featuring a wide choice of transmission and pto configurations, topped by a smart new cab design that’s spacious, has first-rate visibility through large windows and has all controls conveniently to hand.

The McCormick X7 VT Drive line-up spans 6-cylinder (left) and 4-cylinder models whose transmissions are operated through the EasyPilot controller (inset).

The ultimate control and flexibility of a CVT transmission will be the focus of McCormick’s presence at the NORMAC event, where the marque’s X7 VT Drive tractor will be making its working debut. Norfolk dealers Stalham Engineering, from north east of Norwich, and Fakenham-based Johnson Bros will each have one of the new tractors on their working plots. The McCormick X7 VT Drive builds on the success of the Pro Drive semipowershift models with their 24x24speed Pro Drive transmission. McCormick product specialist Paul Wade says: “The Pro Drive, with its manual and fully-automatic range and gear shifts and a smooth power shuttle, is a genuinely smooth operator for a semi-powershift transmission “But VT Drive takes operator comfort, speed control and powertrain efficiency to another level, with speed adjustment available to the finest degree for any task, and modes that automatically extract the best from the tractor in terms of power, performance and fuel economy.” The two examples of the McCormick X7 VT Drive working at the NORMAC event will be the top model. The X7.670 VT Drive has a 6.7-litre engine, developing 190hp for draft work and up to 194hp for transport and pto applications. At the other end of the fivemodel range is the X7.440 VT Drive at 136hp with up to 146hp when boost is automatically engaged. In between, there are two further 4-cylinder machines and a 6-cylinder machine in the line-up. Purpose-designed control

software developed by McCormick manufacturer Argo Tractors provides a full suite of operating modes and settings to suit different fieldwork and road transport situations. Paul says: “As with the Pro Drive transmission, a clear objective was to make the new VT Drive system easy and intuitive to use while still providing the features that make CVT so attractive. “A driver new to this type of transmission can jump in the seat and drive away safely and confidently with just a few minutes’ instruction, but time spent in the seat will be rewarded by an understanding of the more sophisticated features that make the most of the new transmission.” The X7 VT Drive tractors come as standard with a seat-mounted control console and one of the biggest touch-screen terminals available. The 12in colour display of the Data Screen Manager complements the information shown on the vehicle’s instrument panel and provides an easily-navigated set of screens for various transmission, engine, PTO and hydraulic functions. As an option, it can be configured for Isobus implement operation. Fully-integrated satellite-guided steering is also available for maximum productivity and driving ease. In addition to the VT Drive tractors, Johnson Bros and Stalham Engineering will be operating X7 Pro Drive tractors on their plots to highlight the appealing design of the Premiere cab, and the overall balance and traction of the machines when operating cultivations equipment and drills. ■

Zero grazing machinery matters Farmers adopting zero grazing in a bid to cut feed costs, reduce waste and improve dry matter intakes have two options to cut, collect and feed the grass. While a zero grazing machine may well be specifically designed to do this one job, a mower and forage wagon combination gives greater flexibility and, ultimately, a more cost-effective option. That’s the opinion of Opico’s James Woolway, who adds: “Investing in a forage wagon for zero grazing ensures a flexible system in case market conditions and farm practices change. “A forage wagon can also be used to support contract silage-making work or, alternatively, to allow farmers to be in complete control of their own silage making.” However there are several practical factors to consider when choosing machinery, James says. For instance, it’s important to limit the physical damage done to grass when zero grazing, to protect its nutritional quality. Therefore it’s important to select a plain nonconditioner mower to reduce grass

damage. The knives in the forage wagon’s chopping unit can then be removed, and the rotor simply used to feed the grass gently into the wagon, James explains. Strautmann forage wagons include a continuous flow system which spreads the cut grass evenly across the whole width of the wagon, so there’s less compression and less damage done compared to machines where it’s heaped down the middle, he adds. “Size can also matter! If the feed troughs are under cover, wagon height may be an issue. While contractors prefer the larger models, there are also smaller sizes to choose from. “For example, the smallest Strautmann forage wagon is the Zelon, with a maximum height of 3.68m, compared to the contractors’ favourite, the Giga-Vitesse, which is 4.00m tall. “And when it comes to feeding out, the same cross conveyor system that is used in Strautmann mixer wagons can be fitted, giving the flexibility to discharge cut grass to the left or right of the machine,” says James.

Drill switch prompts soil health and yield improvements

Since switching to strip tillage in the spring of 2012, RP Collier Farms in Staffordshire has seen its costs and labour go down significantly. The farm’s main motivation for investing in a new drill, however, was the desire to improve the soil structure, an objective which has been more than achieved according to the farm owner. Tom Collier jointly farms just under 300ha (750 acres) of land in Staffordshire, with half of it being used to grow arable crops; 97ha (240 acres) of wheat, 56ha (138 acres) of spring barley, 53ha (130 acres) of oilseed rape, 50ha (123 acres) of spring beans and the remaining 42ha (100 acres) kept as permanent pasture. The business is run in partnership with Richard Clarke, the owner of the neighbouring Clarkes’ Farms, enabling the two growers to run

a much more efficient operation and reduce their capital expenditure. Both formerly dairy farms, RP Collier Farms sold its dairy business in 1996 whereas Clarkes’ Farms sold its herd in 2004 to move into arable farming. To start with, the businesses were helping each other out with ploughing, drilling, spraying and fertiliser spreading. After a couple of years, Tom and Richard decided to take the next step of sharing machinery

and crop ownership by setting up a partnership called CC Farming and running it as one unit. The business model proved to be a success and, after a few years, neighbouring farmer RJ & J Williams joined in on a crop enterprise basis with CC Farming doing the contracting work for the farm. “All the arable ground is run as though owned by one business, while maintaining sensible rotations on each farm so that every decision is made

with everyone’s best interests in mind,” explains Tom. “Other than the contracting costs, all crop inputs and outputs are shared evenly,” he adds. CC Farming also includes a 600head sheep flock jointly owned by Clarkes’ Farms and RP Collier Farms, which utilises the arable ground for overwinter grazing before spring crops. A five-year crop rotation is in place which consists of oilseed rape, wheat, winter oats as a cover crop, spring barley, another cover crop of winter oats or stubble turnips, spring beans and wheat.

Farm efficiencies Encouraged by the savings presented by consolidating the two farms, Tom and Richard set off to investigate ways of introducing further efficiencies into the joint business. “We wanted to find ways of reducing our machinery and establishment costs even further which made us look at strip tillage as a possible option. But the most important driving factor for us was the desire to improve our soil condition,” continued over...

comments Tom. “We mainly have sandy loam over sandstone which is drought prone and shallow with some areas of sandy clay loam. When we ploughed, we were losing moisture and the soil was suffering from erosion. “We looked at a few other strip-till drills before settling for a Mzuri Pro-Til 3T. We felt the other machines weren’t as well built as the Mzuri and moved too much soil for our liking. The Pro-Til is an impressive piece of kit and it’s been more than worth the investment,” he highlights. “By only covering the ground once and not moving all the soil across the working width we have saved time, fuel and wearing parts. Another important advantage is that we don’t lose too much moisture,

which is especially important on our light soils. Soil erosion is almost a thing of the past both because of the surface straw left on top and the undisturbed areas of soil where the previous crops root systems hold the soil together. The soil has become noticeably easier to pull the drill through over the years, we see much more worm activity and the soil structure is improving all the time.”

Establishment The Pro-Til 3T delivers equally impressive results when it comes to crop establishment, he continues. “The drill is brilliant at providing a clean emergence zone for small plants such as oilseed rape and a good planting depth for beans which we plant at 3.5–4.5in. Deeper drilling of the beans gives slow emergence, but, when they do emerge, the crop has often rooted well and on some of our lighter soil this is an advantage in drier spells. We also

like the hinges on the drilling coulter legs that reduce pressure when going around corners and feel this adds to the already robust nature of the machine.” Since spring 2012, CC Farming has drilled 1,150ha (2,840 acres) with the Mzuri Pro-Til, resulting in a number of savings and other benefits to the business. According to Tom, drilling is quicker and cheaper. “It makes the soil more weather-proof and we achieve more reliable establishment than we used to get when either ploughing or min-tilling, especially on the heavier soils. The crops seem to have more access to moisture and root better, while allowing our machinery to travel more easily at any time of year. The reduced number of passes has resulted in the headlands yielding and looking better than they ever did with conventional establishment in the past,” he says.


“Compared with our previous system of primary cultivation, drill and then Cambridge rolling, we have been able to drop the primary cultivation out completely removing the need to coordinate cultivation and drilling, as well as removing approximately £40/ha off the bottom line. Effectively the primary cultivation tractor, a 180hp Fendt 718, has been moved to drilling duties and a secondary tractor is now only needed for Cambridge rolling.” According to Tom, the business has also seen an increase in yields. “We had two very challenging years in succession with the excessively wet spring and summer of 2012 and a three week scorching hot spell in July 2013. Two years ago, however, we produced record yields of wheat, spring barley and beans, all of which were then broken again last year with top yields of 11.5t/ha for wheat, 9t/ha for spring barley and 6.8t/ha for spring beans.” ■

Cultivating, seeding and crop protection Lemken’s Heliodor 9 compact disc harrow is available from 3–16m working widths.

At Tillage-Live – Lemken will be showing a range of its cultivating, seeding and crop protection technology. The new Heliodor 9 disc harrow features discs of 510mm diameter, which is 45mm larger than its predecessor. This results in a considerably longer service life and the implement’s working depth can additionally be increased by 2–14cm. As the unique disc position of the Lemken compact disc harrows has proven so successful over many years, both cutting angle and undercut have been retained without change. The new Juwel 8 M plough which replaces the Opal plough range will be in use at the working

demonstration. The Juwel 8 M and MV plough models feature a hydraulic reversing mechanism with mechanical pitch adjustment. The reversing mechanism, which comprises a short, robust pivot axle with a diameter of 120mm, ensures precise, reliable plough rotation. The plough is available from 3–7f. Lemken will also show off its newly launched Vega 12 trailed sprayer. The machine is available with tank sizes in 3,000-, 4,000- and 5,000-litre capacities with boom widths up to 30m. The modern, compact design of the new Vega is visually impressive. This field sprayer has a low centre of gravity and generous ground clearance. This is achieved by having the aluminium booms folding vertically at the rear of the machine and the frame being integrated with the tank. The tank is designed without internal pipes to ensure that it can be easily and thoroughly cleaned. ■

Cultivation combo helps control black-grass While many growers are finding that shallow cultivation and direct drilling can help control blackgrass more effectively than deeper cultivation, since dormant seeds are left undisturbed, going straight into direct drilling can lead to an initial decrease in crop yield unless the soil structure is in good condition beforehand. That’s the message from JJ Metcalfe & Son, which says that for direct drilling, and therefore

black-grass control, to be a success, the soil must be free of compaction with a healthy worm population and plentiful organic matter. The company states that its NG cultivation system aids the transition into direct drilling as it relieves compaction layers with minimal surface disturbance and without mixing soil zones. This means that black-grass seeds remain dormant in the subsoil, while those on the surface can be treated.

Eventually cover crops, crop rotation and a healthy worm population will take the place of a cultivator and JJ Metcalfe & Son’s drill conversion coulters can take care of the rest, it says. The tungsten carbide-tipped, component-based range of seed and fertiliser coulters allow Horsch CO series or Sprinter drills to be converted into direct drills. With 12mm-wide points, the coulters provide low-disturbance

drilling, ideal for sowing straight into stubble or cover crop. ■

Folding 4m min-till drill Kuhn Farm Machinery is expanding its range of minimum tillage seed drills with the introduction of a 4m folding version of its award-winning Espro machine. In common with its larger, 6m, sibling, the 4000 R uses two rows of cultivating discs followed by a single row of large-diameter 900mm wheels which are offset and fitted with specially-designed deep-tread tyres that create an “ideal” seedbed. The 4000 R also uses Kuhn’s Crossflex coulter bar. Each coulter

is mounted on polyurethane blocks that allow them to follow ground contours individually. This ensures a consistent seeding depth across the full working width and, in turn, results in even seedling emergence. The Espro 4000 R requires very little power and can be used with tractors as low as 140hp. Despite this low power requirement, it boasts high drilling speeds and is compatible with a wide variety of seed types and sizes. Adjusting the new machine’s

Kuhn’s Espro 4000 R.

settings such as seeding rate, drilling depth and tamping pressure is simple and easy to do via a user-friendly VT50 or CC1200 Isobus control terminal. The same terminal also operates the machine’s automated headland-turn function.

The Espro 4000 R can also be fitted with optional front press wheels, with in-cab pressure adjustment, to pre-level the soil in front of the working discs and to prevent the machine from sinking into lighter or wet soils. ■

Minimal soil disruption Combining quality and efficiency with cutting-edge innovation has kept Bourghault Tillage Tools at the forefront of the tillage and seeding tools industry for more than 25 years, says UK importer Martin Lishman. Now, its new Versatile Opener System (VOS) allows for direct drilling and min-till applications with minimal soil disruption from a product that’s built to the user’s needs. Through its own farming and hands-on field experience, Bourgault

has proved that these benefits can be achieved at a low cost. The VOS comprises two separate parts – the holder and the tip. The tips control the seed/ fertiliser distribution and have design elements exclusive to Bourgault to do this successfully. Precise integral outlets provide accurate seed and fertiliser separation. Combined with carbide sealer plates under the tip as well as a shallow wing angle, the tips achieve a laminar soil flow and

ensure better soil coverage once seed and fertiliser have been delivered. As an added detail, the link between the tip and holder is a stainless steel nut and bolt. This is a simple principle, but proven against other fixing methods to offer superior performance and weather resistance, making changing tips quick and easy with “no chance” of breaking parts, says Martin Lishman, which has dealer distributors J Brock & Sons and Wallace of Kelso. ■

Stubble incorporator brings an extra dimension Yorkshire-based KRM is introducing a trailed one-pass stubble incorporator and soil loosener from Agrisem International, the French manufacturer that specialises in soil conditioning and seedbed preparation equipment. The Maximulch series 3 features two rows of 560mm cutaway discs with a following press roller for quick, shallow cultivation of stubble for residue incorporation and to encourage weed and volunteer seed germination. Each disc unit is mounted on a patented pigtail-shaped tine to allow the disc to move in three dimensions. This is said to create a percussion effect which improves penetration of the hardest stubbles for a consistent working depth, and also improves residue mixing. At the same time, the power and fuel saved compared to traditional two-dimensional systems is claimed to be up to 20 per cent. With no pivots to wear and fullysealed heavy-duty disc bearings, the Maximulch requires zero maintenance, says KRM. Also included is a row of pan-

busting tines with patented TCS blades to raise the soil profile in a wave, creating vertical fissures to enhance the existing soil structure, improve aeration and drainage and to encourage fast and deep root development. Positioned between the two rows of discs for optimum soilloosening action and reduced power requirement, the tines have carbide-tipped shares for a long working life and are adjustable in depth up to 25cm. The tines are protected by shear bolt or, for more stony conditions, a Non Stop safety break-back system. Following the soil loosening and cultivation is a choice of steel packer, V-profile or rubber tyre roller to consolidate the surface to retain moisture to encourage weed and volunteer seed germination and to leave the surface weatherproof. Simple pin adjustment of the rear roller allows precise setting of the working depth. Hydraulically-folding to 3m for transport, the Maximulch is carried on flotation 500x22.5 wheels, and

Grower’s recipe for stale seedbeds

The Carrier cultivator from Vaderstad.

One of the most important elements in one Oxfordshire grower’s strategy to contain black-grass to a manageable level is creating a stale seedbed. David Taylor of Fringford farms 800ha (2,000 acres) of combinable crops. Black-grass has changed the way he farms, especially on the heavy land. In order to manage the weed, he combines chemical and cultural control methods, with stale seedbed creation one of the most important jobs on the farm. David’s cultivator of choice is the 8.25m L825 Vaderstad Carrier, which creates a shallow tilth. He says: “I always wanted an implement that just tickles the ground

cheaply and quickly. A neighbour has a Vaderstad Carrier: we tried it out on 200 acres of hard heavy land and it made the seedbed I was looking for. “The number of discs on the Carrier means it creates only a shallow tilth, but also chops trash and produces a good mix of soil and residue.” David chops and spreads the majority of straw and to achieve as long a chit as possible – the longer the better he says – the Carrier goes in as soon as possible behind the combine. “We only go down two inches on stubble, but the Carrier is a multifunctional tool. It’ll happily create four to five inches of tilth on previouslyworked ground. “We still have to go deep to maintain drainage, so we leave the field for as long as time allows after the Carrier before cultivating down to about nine inches with a disc/tine implement fitted with a double press to firm the ground, a sequence that gives us a good volunteer and blackgrass chit. “We apply glyphosate before and after the deep cultivations, and in front of the drill,” David adds. ■

Adapting to modern min-till trends Agricast has long regarded itself as the heavy cultivation specialist. Originally it supplied wearing parts to British manufacturers and now, in the hands of the next generation, this small family company continues to supply manufacturers and is evolving with current cultivation practices. Coming from a farming background, and as a chartered engineer, means that current general manager Will Robinson is able to listen to customers and turn ideas into reality. He says: “We’ve converted a number of older subsoilers over the past few years, with the aim of minimising surface disturbance with most being used as oilseed rape drills.” The company’s in-house fabrication facilities and background knowledge of the machines allows the company to custom-manufacture legs, tines and new assemblies for “almost any piece of kit”. It has converted a number of

machines to 12mm low-draft (LD) legs that can use either an LD point or a tungsten-tipped drill point. Much of the feedback is that users want something halfway between the two, with ‘not too much heave’, ‘not just a slot’ and ‘some surface crumb’ being typical requests. As a consequence, Agricast hopes to address these issues with the release of its new customisable Low Disturbance Xtra (LDX) system to the market. The company hopes to complete the design and field trial stages to have the new point/wing system ready to meet the min-till demand next season.

Rebell joins the cause German company Köckerling is responsible for the manufacture of a wide range of cultivators and drills to suit all different soil types and conditions. All its machines are made to exacting standards using hot-drawn box sections as standard, one of the reasons it has acquired a reputation for long-life, low running cost and versatile equipment. Whether for large- or small-scale operations, Köckerling offers either a trailed or mounted cultivator to suit all

types of cultivations. This versatility is reflected in the 4.0—14.5m range of trailed cultivators: the Trio; the Allrounder; the Quadro; the Vector; and the flagship Vario/PC, described as a true one-pass cultivator. The drill line-up comprises the Jockey and Ultima. The 6, 9 and 10m Jockey drills are based on the Allrounder Profiline cultivator and are said to be ideal for direct drilling in medium–light soils, and also min-till and ploughing.

clearance for heavy trash conditions. The product package is complemented by a full parts and service back-up. ■

The 6m Rebell Profiline.


Cultivation range expands for larger operations Bullock Tillage initially set out to supply tillage machinery for the small- to medium-scale grower looking for cost-effective solutions at a time when cost of production often exceeds revenue. Now that these financial pressures are beginning to affect larger operations of 400ha (1,000 acres) or more, the company is seeing an increasing demand for larger, wider machines capable of covering more than 40ha (100 acres) per day. In response it is now able to supply its Titanum disc cultivator in 4, 5 and 6m versions, either mounted or trailed. The machine is said to be suited to produce a shallow stale seedbed of less than 50mm, ideal for grass-weed germination. Bullock Tillage now supplies the Titanum with a disc packer, suited to 3m mounted machines or larger trailed units. For the 4 and 6m mounted machines, a spring flex packer is more popular, being lighter and putting less weight on the tractor

In 3, 4, 6 and 8m widths, the Ultima offers precision drilling on ploughed ground through to stubble, guaranteeing an even sowing depth even at high speeds, says Köckerling. All the company’s cultivators and drills come with the renowned STS (soil-to-soil) roller. In 2015, Köckerling released the Rebell, a short disc harrow. It’s available in mounted or trailed, and classic and Profiline versions. All the company’s machines have a “very generous” under-frame

linkage during transport. A number of growers have also asked the company for a soil loosener capable of improving water infiltration without disturbing the soil surface, given that black-grass appreciates wet soils. Its solution is the Disc-Sub, designed to work at a depth of 200—300mm without inverting the soil. This is achieved by using a leading disc that cuts through residue and reduces the soil burst produced by the loosening tines. As with all its products, Bullock Tillage’s aim is to keep operating costs as low as possible, and all wearing parts for the Disc-Sub are said to be readily available from a number of parts suppliers. ■

Power on the Land

The fact that more of the potato crop is produced by fewer but more specialised large-scale growers, is increasing the importance of efficient mechanisation, writes Mike Williams. A view of the Gentle Flow crop intake on a four-row Grimme harvester.

Pressure to improve efficiency starts in the field and continues in the packhouse and potato store, and one of the recent harvester developments is the Gentle Flow process introduced earlier this year by Grimme on its four-row Varitron self-propelled harvesters. Gentle Flow is based on a redesigned intake unit to achieve a smoother, uninterrupted flow of incoming crop material. While traditional four-row systems include a separate intake for material from each pair of rows, the Gentle Flow intake is designed

to avoid interrupting the crop flow and this means blockage risks are virtually eliminated. Another benefit of the Grimme Easy Flow system is that the drive mechanism is simplified, needing fewer bearings and other components, and this means increased reliability with maintenance requirements significantly reduced, the company says.

Smashing time Out-grade potatoes rejected during harvesting are a familiar problem for growers, resulting in volunteer plants that can host disease organisms to affect future crops. One solution to the problem is the Potato Crusher available from Bye Engineering, an attachment that fits manned versions of both trailed and self-propelled harvesters. The Crusher has hydraulically powered hardened steel rotors that smash

reject potatoes to prevent them developing as volunteer plants. Bye Engineering offers the Potato Crusher with an attachment kit for mounting on the harvester. Kits for mounting on most of the popular harvesters are available from stock, but Trevor Bye says his company can also make kits for mounting on less familiar makes and models. Fitting the Potato Crusher does not affect the performance of the harvester, he said, and the design includes auto-reset stone protection plus an integrated hydraulic pump.

Trailer cleaner Recent additions to the Tong Engineering range include a new Cleaner Loader trailer that takes potatoes and other roots such

as carrots and beetroot from the harvester and removes dirt and other unwanted material before unloading the crop into a bulker for transport from the field. The cleaner loader, which can also work as a static machine on the headland, leaves more of the dirt and other unwanted material in the field to reduce the volume of waste to be handled at the packhouse, and it is available with hopper sizes from 1.8–2.4m giving work rates up to 60tph. Also available from Tong is the new Storemaker hopper cleaner equipped with high efficiency Blue Inverter drive technology for reduced energy consumption. It can be equipped with various interchangeable separators including the latest updated Tong EasyClean module, and the options include the current Pro Series control interface.

Filling Company’s range of weighing, handling and sack sewing machines for which David Harrison is the main UK distributor. Sack Filling Co is based in Essex where the company was established in 2012 by former staff from WJ Morray Engineering, the company that made Walthambury products. David Harrison’s Gary Palmer says his company previously handled machines made long before the Morray company ceased trading, giving them the benefit of a long period of continuity dealing with some of the same staff in the new company. Two years ago the Sack Filling Company purchased WJ Morray’s remaining assets and patents, and this is good news as it ensures continuing parts availability for older Walthambury products, said Mr Palmer.

Maintenance and repair As well as supplying and installing an expanding range of handling, weighing and packing machinery, Cambridgeshire based Agrimech Services also provides a full maintenance and repair facility

New additions to handling line range Belgian company AVR is unveiling its two most recent innovations in crophandling technology. The Cobra is a store loader with a length of 15, 17 or 19m and a belt width of 80cm, while the Falcon is the new receiving hopper with a 2.4m working width on the roller set and a length of 4.5 or 6.0m. Sales and marketing manager Stefaan Dierickx says: “Features include the 100 per cent soft bunker floor of the Falcon and the Cobra’s unequalled capacity, thanks to its double drum motors. “To guarantee users an optimal product with which they can confidently and safely store their valuable crop, we do long and extensive field-testing of our prototypes. “It’s very important to offer a welldesigned product, with which potatoes can be handled in a fast, effective and potato-friendly manner.” One of the new features of the Cobra is the hydraulic-driven wheels. Their continuously variable speed ensures a uniform distribution and constant flow of potatoes in the storage unit. The counterweights are placed

on each side so that there is no closing below the belt, which avoids soil accumulation. Generously dimensioned, the weights make for a stable machine. The Canbus control system with touch-screen and robust keypad was developed from scratch by AVR. A twin filling hopper guarantees good connection, even when the belt is sharply inclined. And because the hopper was conceived to be as low as possible, the drop height can also be kept to a minimum. The conveyor belt is electricallypowered, so that less power is necessary for the same load, says AVR. Snub idlers near the motors press the conveyor belt snugly against the drum of the power-train so that there is 10—15 per cent more contact surface. Wall and product sensors make semi-automatic filling possible. The machine is easily accessible for maintenance and inspection, while the retractable drawbar is easy to use. As for the Falcon, this receiving hopper is available in several versions and with different roller variations, so that the user can virtually customtailor their machine.

The Cobra and Falcon are new from AVR.

Handling of the crop is 100 per cent gentle, because all steel parts are covered with soft rubber. Thanks to the capacity control, a constant flow to the roller set can be regulated. The floor chain has 19.2t of tractive power per chain. Floor speed can vary between 0.1 and 8.1m/min. Given the hydraulic drive, there’s plenty of torque, even at low floor speeds. The diameter of the cleaning rollers is 90mm. These small rollers ensure that the product is easily transported over the roller set to the end, reducing damage to the product. Meanwhile, the PU spiral roller set guarantees, in addition to an excellent

sieving capacity, a soft roller bed for the potatoes. A boost function allows the roller set to clean itself. There’s a minimal drop height between the bunker floor and the roller set, and from the roller set to the product transport belt, which is height-adjustable and can also be slanted for more capacity.

All conditions AVR has also launched the new ACC (all conditions control) front-end option for its Puma 3 potato harvesters, allowing operators to continue to lift the crop in difficult conditions (diabolo-free) without putting any pressure on the ridges. ■

Maximum payload, minimum cost

Richard Western Rootcrop trailers are available in 11–18t models on tandem axles.

The Rootcrop trailer is a low-line trailer designed to facilitate damagefree root crop harvesting, says Suffolk based manufacturer Richard Western. Rootcrop trailer models have a 1.15m (3ft 9in) side height and a long low line body. Constructed from pressed steel the trailer is designed with a strength to weight ratio to allow users to maximise payloads and minimise ground compaction and fuel costs. “The Rootcrop trailer range continues to be an important part of our business and we constantly keep the product up-to-date with the latest innovations in trailer design,” says sales director Mike Murray. “Our customers have come to expect a high standard, quality product and it is important that we keep this in

mind through every stage of our manufacturing process.” Standard features include a height adjustable sprung drawbar, full width arched front window with perspex panel, a 1.9m axle track and a hydraulic tailgate with rubber seal, hydraulic safety check valve and mechanical auto-lock. LX and HS variants, designed for 50kph speeds and fast tow tractors, come standard with LED lights, LED side marker lights and hydraulic brakes with load sensing valve. A fast tow pack is available for all models and includes air and hydraulic brakes, load sensing valves, ABS braking, mud guards and mud flaps and LED flashing beacon. All trailers are finished in twopack paint after shot blasting and undercoating, says the company. “Preserving soil structure is a key consideration for our customers and the majority of trailers leave our factory fitted with flotation tyres – 560/60R22.5 radial tyres are the popular choice – and we offer a wide selection of tyre options to meet specific customer requirements,” explains Mr Murray. ■

Dutch investment secures crop storage company’s future Farm Electronics, the Lincolnshire-based crop storage engineering specialist, is merging with Tolsma-Grisnich, the leading Dutch specialist in the efficient storage and primary processing of potatoes, onions and carrots. The newly-merged business will feature a more extensive state-of-the-art product mix from both companies for storage systems, together with semiindustrial systems, to UK and overseas customers. Farm Electronics managing director Tim Dudfield says: “The merger, in which Tolsma-Grisnich has taken a majority share, is very much a win-win situation for our customers and employees at our factory in Grantham, as it is the intention of the enlarged business to invest in Farm Electronics and further grow the company, securing its long-term future.” The company will continue to trade and manufacture crop storage systems as Farm

Renewed confidence in machinery market distributing quality potatoes. Back in 2013 its grading, weighing and bagging line was in need of upgrading and the company’s Andy Morton contacted Gary to review the plant and come up with a plan to replace/refurbish the kit within a limited budget. Andy says: “While we’d love to buy new kit all the time, smaller companies have to watch what they do. “Harrisons has a good name for buying and refurbishing used kit, and it always has a good selection.

He says: “When budgets are tight our phones become busy with customers who know that, besides new machinery, we’re active in buying and refurbishing good used kit.” Harrsions’ recent orders for refurbished machinery include phase two of a pack-house scheme for AWM Potatoes near Braintree in Essex, described as a thriving business growing, packing and

Time to get your store in order Is your potato store ready for next year’s changes in label requirements for CIPC use? That’s the question being posed by Bennett & Co, which says that CIPC distribution will become even more critical with the requirement for ‘active’ ventilation making it important for fans to be speedcontrolled. Box stores will benefit from the use of a timber suction wall where

the slots are correctly sized to give the airflow for good CIPC distribution and to match the boxes, it adds. The company can advise on any improvements that may be necessary, whether they be for CIPC distribution or to counter problems with ventilation, control or condensation. Given the amount of interest anticipated over the coming months, Bennett & Co recommends that

potato growers make contact soon to plan early for next year’s harvest. The company works with a number of carefully selected subcontractors to produce what it describes as high-quality outcomes using market-leading suppliers of steel-frame buildings, fans, refrigeration equipment, modulating burners, timber tunnels and floors and state-of-the-art monitoring and control equipment. ■

All the latest in potato machinery Standen Engineering is announcing a series of updates to its range of potato and vegetable machinery. The Standen T2 has long been the choice for those looking for a potato harvester with a generouslydimensioned 6-person sorting table. The latest sorting table allows pickers to walk from one side to the other without leaving the harvester, improving output and safety. The company says that customer demand has driven the development of enhancements to deal with undulating ground. Strong sales of the T2 this year are

partly due to the recent introduction of RoTo Axle-equipped machines and their greater suitability for windrowing. This has motivated Standen engineers to further develop T2 windrowing attachments with a new LowDrop hydraulic windrow web discharge for even gentler harvesting, lowering the potatoes right into the rows. This system will be available in 2017. Customer demand has also seen the number of on-harvester T2 separating module options grow to 10, all with powerful haulm-, weed-, clod-, stone- and soil-removing

capacities. Standen’s new UNI-Plus destoner, wiith Increased separating capacity and a strong simplified drive line, received a warm welcome at its Cereals 2016 launch, with several orders for the 2017 season. Meanwhile a wet June stimulated interest in Standen’s Target-Set SRi side-ridge injection system. With the rain washing away conventionallyapplied fertiliser, the injected-to-root SRi system clearly demonstrated its advantages. ■ Standen’s LowDrop hydraulic windrow web discharge will be available next year.

Easier robotic handling Agrimech Services is announcing its partnership with Comau Robots. This partnership will enable it to offer tray packing and pick-andplace solutions, as well as robot bag stacking. Agrimech is the first company to work with Comau using an open robotics solution. Open robotics means no longer being tied to the robot manufacturer’s often difficult-

to-use controls, as Agrimech builds the control panel and writes the entire software program. This gives a much simpler interface, with no over-complicated robot languages or handheld teach pendant. Agrimech designs and installs the program specific to individual customer requirements, allowing for remote engineering and monitoring solutions via mobile or tablet.

Online monitoring allows companies to access information to improve productivity and performance of packing operations, even if the machinery is in a different location to the offices. ■ Left to right: Agrimech Services managing director Darren Smith and finance director  Belinda Smith, alongside Comau UK managing director Brendan Blennerhassett.

Diagnostics module minimises downtime New modules on Tong’s control system (inset) make finding and solving problems on its latest equipment easier than ever.

In line with its commitment to providing growers and processors with advanced grading and handling equipment that increases efficiency while minimising maintenance and downtime, Tong Engineering is offering a time-saving diagnostics module as part of its latest pro-series Auto-Touch HMI touch-screen control. Available as an option on all its latest equipment, Tong’s pro-series controls can be specified as part of the Auto-Touch HMI control system, adding a level of control and system intelligence that brings users advanced system monitoring and

reporting. Tong Engineering technical manager Tony Smith says: “The idea behind our latest diagnostics module is that users can see how their equipment or line is running at any given time, in real time. “It’s a highly proactive system designed to provide real-time notifications of the status of the line. This includes regular notifications of assurance when the line is running efficiently, as well as real-time alerts of any issues that potentially need checking or maintenance for optimal operation. “This includes information on any emergency stop alerts, motor and inverter loading statistics or areas such as where a conveyor belt isn’t tracking efficiently.

“By being proactive, any issues can be rectified quickly to prevent further deterioration, meaning downtime and maintenance really is kept to a minimum, saving time, labour and ultimately costs.” The module provides users with continuous status monitoring so that, in the event of an issue, the exact location is automatically pinpointed, allowing quick and easy problem solving and resetting. Any issues are displayed visually on the touch-screen, allowing users of any level to see exactly where the problem has occurred, for a quick resolution. This feature significantly reduces downtime, removing the guesswork on machine trips and faultfinding. It also means that, in most cases, issues can be resolved without the need for an engineer. Working alongside the diagnostics module is a new maintenance schedule module, which allows the run-time of any machine component to be recorded in terms of running hours or calendar periods and indicates when any part may need to be maintained or replaced, making any scheduled maintenance much

more efficient. This new feature not only improves the efficiency of maintenance but also allows users to be more proactive in their maintenance routines, minimising wear and repair costs while saving time. Managing director Edward Tong says: “The continuous system monitoring that the diagnostic and maintenance modules offers gives operators an exceptionally high level of intelligence about the status of their handling equipment at any given time. “In addition, the latest safety technology that is also incorporated within these new modules enables safe running of parts of the line while others are under adjustment or maintenance. “Problem diagnosis and solving really is quicker and easier than ever before, meaning growers and processors can enjoy more continuous operation and increased productivity of their handling facilities while embracing the leading-edge technologies that are now available as an option on our latest equipment,” Edward adds. ■

There will be working and static displays and, on the Sunday, the Ferguson Club European T20 Ploughing Championship will be held as well as the Ferguson/ Massey Ferguson Tractor and Plough Combination Match. For further details contact David Chapman on 01945 440273 or 07966402141, or email


Enthusiastic crowds turned out to see an historic parade of 70 tractors through the City of Coventry at the end of July. The cavalcade and display of machines old and new was staged by Culture Coventry to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the iconic ‘Little Grey Fergie’ Ferguson TE20 tractor, produced at the former Banner Lane manufacturing plant, the brainchild of Harry Ferguson, a founder of the present-day Massey Ferguson. The tractors were brought together by the Friends of Ferguson Heritage Club. Led by a 20.3hp 1947 Ferguson TE20, equipped with a 2f plough, and the 400hp MF 8737, the most powerful tractor in the current Massey Ferguson line-up, the procession finished at Millennium Place outside the Transport Museum. The MF 8737, named ‘The City of Coventry’ had been especially liveried in striking black paintwork, paying homage to the prototype Ferguson Black tractor of 1933 which was the first to incorporate Harry’s pioneering idea for a 3-point linkage system to connect tractor

and implement. The 70 tractors taking part showcased a wide range of Ferguson, Massey-Harris and Massey Ferguson machines produced since 1946 and came from as far afield as Devon. The Ferguson TE20’s 70th anniversary-inspired Culture Coventry’s current ‘Tractors – From Factory to Field’ exhibition at Coventry Transport Museum runs until 19th September.

Everything you want for woodland For anyone looking to increase the returns from their woodland, or even just to add value to a single tree, the APF event is the place to see what’s available and to receive expert advice. APF is the UK’s largest woodland, forestry, trees and timber show, to be held at the Ragley Estate, Alcester in Warwickshire from 15th–17th September. It’s the showcase for the latest equipment, tools, machines and services used in all aspects of managing, harvesting, processing

and adding value to on-farm woodland, trees and timber. About 300 exhibitors will demonstrate every conceivable piece of equipment used in a modern working woodland or timber business, say the organisers, who are expecting about 18,000 visitors over the course of the three days. Machinery will be operating in a realistic working environment alongside a 2,000m demonstration circuit. With exhibitors on both sides of the circuit that represents more than 2.5 miles and 30 million pounds-

worth of working machinery. Much of the equipment on show is designed for small woodlands and individual trees. There will be firewood processors, mobile sawmills, saw benches, wood chippers to turn low-value timber into wood chips and the biomass §boilers to utilise them. In addition there will be a host of the latest fencing equipment manufacturers and suppliers, plus the latest advice on tree health and identifying disease. The event will also host

the world 25m pole-climbing championships, with 50 of the world’s best climbers, while 25 of the best chainsaw carvers will compete in the European chainsaw carving championship. There is also the UK’s largest display of traditional woodland crafts, such as charcoal burning, oak swill baskets, Sussex trugs, pole lathe turning, hazel hurdles, coracles and farriery. Tickets can be bought online at or will be available on the gate at £20. ■

On track for a high spec post driver? The demands of the contractor market has lead Protech to develop a selfpropelled tracked post driver which is towable behind a vehicle with a 3,500kg capacity (see pic page 5). The Protech Evo1 is available with many high spec options, says the company, including a tele mast capable of handling a 4m post, extended track base (from 1.6– 2.1m) for greater stability – essential for steep terrain without adding a counterbalance weight. The company is also

manufacturing its own chassis and can offer wider tracks of 400–450mm (when using modified tracked dumpers only 300mm wide tracks were previously available). Protech says that a carrying platform (with 120 or 60 degree working slew) is of key importance to carry materials near to where operators work. Extra attachments like wire dispensers, rock drills, rockspikes and toolboxs can be added making it a self-contained, one-man operation unit. ■

Extending the range – and the reach The new PA6585 Tele-VFR.

McConnel is expanding its flagship 85-series power arm range with the launch of an advanced 6.5m telescopicvariable forward reach model. The new PA6585 Tele-VFR has been created to meet the demands of contractors who want to combine the popular 6.5m reach option with

the performance of the company’s 85-series machines, the visibility and comfort enhancements of VFR and the flexibility of a 0.9m telescopic extension. By enabling an extended forward reach of up to 2m, the new machine increases the working area by as much as 400 per cent and allows safe and effective work around roadside obstacles. Tele-VFR technology also allows cutting directly behind the cab when

working in very narrow lanes where space is at a premium and there’s no room to extend the arm. This creates opportunities for work in challenging environments where a conventional reach arm machine would struggle, McConnel points out. Driven by high-performance 85hp hydraulics, the new machine features McConnel’s Revolution control system which offers precise proportional control of eight different functions, rigid five-point axle mounting and heavy-duty build quality capable of withstanding the busy workloads of professional contractors.

It also comes with McConnel’s award-winning Easy Drive System as an option. This automatically adjusts the flail head to the contours of the ground, reducing operator fatigue and increasing verge-mowing speeds by up to 18kph, the company claims. One of the most important characteristics of the new armrest is that it takes full advantage of the 120-degree focal range of the human eye. It allows operators to flick simultaneously back and forth from the road to the flail head’s position alongside the cab without compromising safety. ■

Mulching toppers hail from Spain Spaldings is announcing that it has signed an exclusive deal to supply the UK farming and ground-care industries with mulching toppers from the largest manufacturer in Spain, TMC Cancela. TMC Cancela makes about 2,500 toppers per year. With all design and construction taking place in house, the very high quality of the finished product far outweighs any

competition, says Spaldings. Indeed, the company’s Alex Smith says that, following a visit to the manufacturer’s facilities in northern Spain, he feels Spaldings has discovered something “very special” for the UK market. Initially Spaldings will stock six different machines: a 1.8m flail; a front- and a rear-mounted 2.8m version; a 2.2m offset flail; and a 2.0m

and a 3.6m folding rotary machine. Available on request will be a folding 4.8 and 6.1m flail machine. Spaldings will also have access to the full range of TMC Cancela machinery that includes forestry and hydraulic excavator equipment. This is all backed up by a full spares and service support network. Spaldings will be showcasing these toppers at the APF event.

Forestry, firewood and wood processing machinery aplenty Westtech – the ultimate treeshears for total safety, says Marshall Agricultural Engineering.

Marshall Agricultural Engineering offers a versatile range of high-quality forestry machinery, and will be demonstrating most of it at APF. For example, it will be showing the Westtech tree shears, which are ideal for large-scale harvest of forest areas, maintenance along roads and railways, problematic tree felling and much more. The Gierkink grapple saw can be used as an attachment on excavators or cranes, and doesn’t need any additional hydraulic or electrical supply. The new DH range of Krpan singleand double-drum 3—10t winches will be on show. Options include electrohydraulic control, radio remote control and power-out, the Savall

skyline, and the new GP 12 D timber trailer with a patented chassis that allows the bogie axle to be moved forwards or backwards, even during loading or being driven fully loaded. Also new to the Krpan range is the CS 420 PTO firewood processor and log deck. Marshall’s will be launching the Jussi 3t trailer crane for use with ATVs and compact tractors. Meanwhile the new Flex model of the Lennartsfors IronFlex is said to be ideal in wet and difficult terrain with low ground pressure making it gentle on soil and plants. Binderberger makes two models of firewood processors, 5—21t trailer cranes, cone splitters with built-in gearbox, and vertical and horizontal log splitters. All are fully galvanised. Completing the extensive line-up are: Serra mobile and static sawmills; heavy-duty TCM mulchers for tractor and excavator mulching; Eschlböck Biber woodchippers; Koneosapalvelu grapples; Dinasaw chain and sawband sharpeners; and a new range of Flex harvester bars from Sweden, which boast a longer-life bar and replaceable tips. ■

Fells and places trees Nick Dinsdale with the TMK tree shear.

NCD Equipment is the sole UK importer of the TMK tree shear. The company was started by Nick Dinsdale in 2014 and has grown in strength largely thanks to the popularity of the Finnish-built shear and Nick’s tenacity to promote it. The machine is small, but capable of being fitted on 5–16t machines, working at its best on excavators, cutting 250mm

hardwood to 300mm softwood. The beauty of the shear, says Nick, is that it keeps hold of the tree, allowing the operator to place it safely on the ground. It saves man hours and, by releasing the user’s time, it becomes a cost-effective attachment. Nick has a close relationship with TMK, making it easy for him to represent the shear it manufactures. He says he believes in honesty and hard work, which is manifest not only with the relationship he has built with TMK, but also those with his customers.

“After meeting Nick at LAMMA 2015, the TMK Tree Shear looked exactly what I was looking for as a replacement excavator mounted tree shear. The design was constructed to meet the needs of our operations. Nick quickly organised a demonstration at our base and we ordered one immediately. The shear has been used for a wide variety of small and large scale jobs and reduces man power. The whole process from purchase to after sale care has been fantastic and we would not hesitate to recommend Nick and his range of products to anyone. Thanks Nick, the shear makes a great addition to our range of excavator attachments.”

A soft start system controls the initial power supply to give a smooth run up of the powerful 36v motor even if the power control is fully depressed, while an electronic current limiter protects the motor from overload in operation. The 43cm cutting width is complemented by 13 cutting height settings selected by a single adjustment lever. The mower body is a rigid housing for rugged reliability, and the ball bearing axles give free-running

Makita’s share of the grounds maintenance market continues to grow, with recent launches including cordless and mains-powered lawnmowers and cordless and petrolpowered line trimmers. The DLM431 push-type lawnmower is powered by two 18v lithium-ion batteries that will run the rotary twin-tooth blade up to 3,600rpm. The gauge showing the state of charge is conveniently placed at the handlebar controls.

wheel action. This mower is recommended for lawns up to 950m2, has low levels of noise and vibration and a 50 litre grass box with grass level indicator. Meanwhile, the ELM3311X 240v push-type electric mower is suitable for lawns up to 400m2. Its 1,100 watt induction motor will run the rotary blade up to 2,900rpm. It has a 33cm cutting width, three height positions and a lightweight 27 litre grass box with grass level indicator. It also has quick-folding handles and a carry grip for easy transport. Overall the mower weighs just 13kg thanks to the moulded polypropylene deck housing design that also allows the wheels to be fitted in line with the body. Because they don’t protrude, it’s possible to mow up close to borders, walls and kerbing. The DUR184LZ cordless 18v twospeed line trimmer features the latest brushless motor technology for long run times and extended life and, in high gear, will run up to 6,000rpm. With the motor housed in the drive head and the battery and electronics at the top of the bent shaft, the balance of the trimmer is said to be ideal.

The curved shaft also keeps the cutting head parallel to the ground for accuracy, while the ergonomic loop handle is said to give excellent control. The conveniently-placed trigger switch has a lock-off lever, 2-speed selector and constant speed control. If the trimmer isn’t used for more than a minute, the power switch automatically shuts off the system. The small line protector provides an excellent view of the cutting area and the shaft can be extended by 10cm for extra comfort and control. Finally, the EM2511LH line trimmer is powered by the high-performance Makita MM4 4-stroke petrol engine. Running on straight unleaded petrol, the 24.5cc engine develops 1.0hp. It has reduced exhaust emissions, low fuel consumption and low noise. It’s fitted with the reliable diaphragm-type carburettor, auto decompressor and fuel primer pump for easy starting. This line trimmer has a 42cm cutting diameter and weighs just 5.3kg. Pressure-fed oil lubrication allows it to be used at any angle. The loop handle gives full control at any angle while the protector covers both metal blade and nylon cutting head. ■

Forestry & Hedging

Contractor provides stern test for new hedge trimmer One of the first of Shelbourne Reynolds’ new contractor-targeted Powerblade HD800 hedge trimmers was given a thorough pre-production test by one of eastern England’s largest hedge/verge contractors. From Walton Highway, near Wisbech on the Norfolk/ Cambridgeshire border, MJ Wright & Son runs three trimmers across a 40-mile radius encompassing 2,800 hectares (7,000 acres) of farmland, roadside work and contracts for bodies including Anglian Water. Five years ago it bought its first Shelbourne trimmer, an HD770T. Mick Wright, who works with his son Peter and three operators,

says: “Reliability, responsiveness to feedback and the support from Shelbourne meant that, after 3,500hrs in five years, we wanted to replace it with a similar machine. “However, after we’d provided pointers on HD700 design, Shelbourne offered us a preproduction model from the new HD800 range.” When compared to HD700 models, which the manufacturer continues to offer, the HD800s incorporate a redesigned mainframe, greater slew arc and up-rated oil and cooling capacities. The general launch was at Lamma 2016, but the Wright’s pre-series

HD870Tele was delivered last autumn. Peter Wright, who is the machine’s main operator, says: “When verge trimming we operate at 12-13kph, and we’d worked with Shelbourne to ensure good head-float response at these speeds without sequence issues. “The HD870’s float response is excellent. You’d hardly know that the head is in the working position. “The bigger oil cooler and fan, plus reversing fan feature, cut power loss on hot days, while the removable oil cooler screen, better radiator access and new service area cover all make servicing easier. “It’s clearly a contractor machine.”

MJ Wright & Son has put almost a year’s work on its preproduction Powerblade. Mick (left) and Peter Wright.

Coppicing now an affordable option Based in Peasenhall, Suffolk, Collins Farming and Forestry primarily covers Cambridgeshire, Essex, Norfolk and Suffolk, specialising in hedge and woodland coppicing, wood chipping for biofuel, ditching and all types of excavator work. Reclamation of ponds and the relaying of yards and tracks also form part of the company’s regular workload, in addition to more

conventional services such as mole draining, arable cultivations and relief spraying operations. Hedgerow coppicing has now been introduced under new stewardship schemes with the ability to obtain government funding to cover the cost, the company says. Combined with the increased mechanisation of hedge and woodland coppicing the resulting reduction in cost per metre of

coppicing now makes this type of work more affordable than ever. If the timber coppiced is of good enough quality, there is also the possibility to derive an income from the wood for fuel, either as logs or woodchip, or even higher-value uses, it adds. Indeed, there are situations when the income from the timber can make a substantial contribution to costs,

to the point where a project can be self-funding. All of Collins Farming and Forestry operators are trained, certified where necessary and fully insured and the company says that it aims to give a professional and competent service. It says that it’s always happy to help with advice and quotations and the exchange of ideas and the forming of project plans, large or small. ■

Marshall tractors William Marshall started a blacksmith’s business at the Britannia Works in Gainsborough in 1848 and in the early years, a range of portable steam engines, traction engines and threshing machines was made. The first Marshall oilengined tractor, with a chain drive to the rear wheels was made in 1906. The first Marshall 15/30 diesel tractor with 15 drawbar hp and 30 at the belt pulley appeared in 1930. Similar to the Lanz Bulldog, it had a single cylinder 2-stroke engine running at 550rpm. An improved Marshall 18/30 replaced the 15/30 in 1932 which was superseded by the Marshall 12/20 in 1936. The 12/20 became the Model M in 1938. With war at an end the first Series I Field Marshalls were made at the Britannia Works in 1945. With the same Brunswick green paintwork as the Model M, there were two versions of the Series I Field Marshall, the Mk I with a 6mph top speed was for farm work and the 9mph Mk II was used mainly by threshing contractors. There were

Most Series 3A Field Marshall tractors had orange paintwork.

also Mk 1 and Mk II versions of the Series 2 made from 1947–1949 when the Series 3 Field Marshall replaced it. The improved Series 3A, with a dual range six forward and two reverse gearbox, made between 1952–1956 was the first Field Marshall with electric starting and optional hydraulic lift. It was also the first with an alternative orange and silver colour scheme in place of the familiar Brunswick green. ■

Farmers Guide 25 Years Ago In September 1991 Farmers Guide welcomed its Yorkshire readers to a growing circulation. Ernest Cozens reported that a range of Italianbuilt power harrows, previously made for Ransomes, was now being sold as Rotoland power harrows by the newly established Concept Farm Machinery Ltd and that Power Farming Ltd at Stamford had become a full Deutz Fahr dealer. In spite of an apparent gloom in the machinery trade, Farmers Guide reported that Colchester Tractors had opened a new Ford depot at Marlesford in Suffolk and Case IH had appointed Collings of Abbotsbury in Cambridgeshire and Essex-based Coleman Engineering as main dealers. Several dealers had arranged field events to show how the latest tackle coped with straw and stubble with the forthcoming straw burning ban. Peacock and Binnington attracted over 300 farmers to a demonstration of the Opico square plow and packer roller at Scampton near Lincoln and in Suffolk Colchester Tractors demonstrated the Howard Swing plough. A 7f Besson disc plough, a 6m Lely power harrow and a 7f Dowdeswell reversible were among the many implements used with nine John Deere tractors demonstrated by Tuckwells at its Worlingworth depot. The yellow pages included a 32-page programme for Suffolk Farm Machinery Club’s 20th Power in Action demonstration at Otley College. The tractors, working with ploughs and tillage equipment, ranged from an 80hp Case IH 844 to a 280hp Caterpillar Challenger

with rubbertracks, and a 12f Dowdeswell reversible plough with a £119,250 price tag. A 210hp Track Marshall TM 200 on rubber tracks and pulling a 10f Dowdeswell plough was priced at £96,000. With an idea of things to come the Silsoe Research Institute demonstrated a Ford 7610 with SRT rubber half-tracks, air-spring suspension and a patented track tension compensation system. The September 1991 Farmers Guide also previewed the 20th PMB Potato Harvesting and Handling event in Lincolnshire with demonstrations of complete and 2-stage harvesters together with handling equipment and potato bed tillers. A 4-row Grimme lifter/windrower, a 3-row Reed & Upton self-propelled harvester, and a trailed Whitsed Viking harvester which lifted, bagged and weighed the crop were among the machines expected at the demonstration. On the machinery pages Cowies Eastern Tractors announced that it had sold 18 new MF tractors to the same customer and Combine World had sold over 500 used combines since opening in late 1989. WestMac announced a new range of Fiona combine drills and it was noted that over 80 per cent of the stand space had already been sold for the 1991 Royal Smithfield Show.

activity, any moisture was likely to bring them up to the surface to feed, and the likely high numbers will need controlling. He said he was aiming to complete OSR drilling by the 7th of September and, although his growers are not in a cabbage stem flea beetle hotspot, looking at volunteers following harvest there was little sign of adult feeding activity. “It seems promising at the moment if that’s anything to go by but we must remain vigilant to the threat and I do have concerns over the effectiveness of pyrethroids. “I won’t use a pyrethroid unless I really have to – I’d rather leave any predators in the field,” he added. In terms of black-grass, Andrew said that the worst affected fields would be put into spring barley while others, where an autumn crop could be successfully grown, would be moved to a mid-October onwards drill timing. “Attention to detail in terms of seedbed quality is key,” he highlighted. “We are trying to get seedbeds created and rolled down as soon as possible to get moisture to stimulate a black-grass flush and

then spray it off at the 2-leaf stage. “Depending on time, growers may do a second cultivation with a Vaderstad Carrier or Horsch Jokertype machine and roll that down. It won’t be a deep pass while the ground is hard, but a quick and easy, shallow seedbed.” On medium soils, Andrew added that tactical use of the plough is an option to bury black-grass seeds. Where growers are planning to drill wheat and winter barley in September (on lighter land with no grass weeds), they are making more use of Deter (clothianidin) seed dressing for aphid control due to concerns over increased pyrethroid resistance.

Western England Much the same story seems to be unfolding in the west of the country where Herefordshirebased Hillhampton Technical Services agronomist, Antony Wade said good progress had been made with harvest to date.

However, as is the national picture, barley has been disappointing with low bushel weights and below average yields, despite the fact that crops looked reasonable earlier in the season. “They were quite short in the spring but had decent tillers,” he said. Oilseed rape was “average to below average”, commented Antony, with yields in the region of 2.9t/ha to 3.7t/ha tops. “One grower I know commented that the seed was so small it was a struggle to keep it in the trailer!” he added. Also speaking in mid-August, Antony said that growers were now into the wheats and although it was early days, bushel weights were holding up well with some crops at the 9.8t/ha mark, although others were not quite so good at 8.6t/ha. With feed wheats dominating in the region, soft Group 4 variety Leeds was highlighted for having done particularly well, and Reflection had also been singled out with a good performance despite concerns regarding its disease resistance to yellow rust this season. As usual, JB Diego and Grafton

had both performed consistently well, he noted. With few concerns regarding CSFB in the region, the first week in September will see the new oilseed rape crop begin to go in the ground, although perhaps a little earlier for some growers if there is available moisture, Antony suggested. In terms of black-grass, more is being seen in fields in the region although contact herbicides, mostly applied in the early spring, are still giving growers reliable control. “We don’t want to be getting into the difficulties that growers in the east are finding themselves in and so we have a zero tolerance policy of spraying areas off where they are bad or hand roguing, and of course using stale seedbeds and spring cropping in the worst affected areas. “Spring barley, grown for feed, is becoming a favourable option in the spring to help with blackgrass control, alongside crops such as maize, or energy beet for AD plants.” *Antony can be contacted on 07973243590 or on Twitter: @ HTSagronomy. ■
