Out & About by managing editor, Jane Potts

Although this is the January issue, it’s our last one before Christmas – so, on behalf of the Farmers Guide team, I wish all of our readers and advertisers a Happy Christmas and a happy, healthy and prosperous 2019.

Doug and Florence Potts in the summer of 1979, just before the launch of Farmers Guide.



40 years

New Scottish readers Which brings me to – welcome to our new Scottish readers, many of who may not have seen the magazine before. We’re growing in your area and would like you to continued over...

This month signals the start of our 40th anniversary year – the first issue was September 1979. It consisted of 48 pages, all black and white with ‘spot’ colour – usually blue or red. A double page spread in a rather fetching shade of green, along with further ads and editorial promoted the Fisons sponsored Sprayers in Action event at the East of England Showground, Peterborough. Eastern Tractors was on the front cover, MJ Storey on the back cover and Bobcat dealer Michael J Cant on the inside front cover. A small editorial reminded farmers to burn stubble and straw in strict accordance with the NFU’s Straw and Stubble Burning Code and another feature promoted a working demonstration of direct drills advising that 800,000 acres were drilled this way in 1978. The annual Power in Action demonstration to be held at Otley near Ipswich was also featured. Farm machinery news stated that one of Italy’s best known balers, the L Sgorbati range is to be marketed in the UK by Landman Machinery of Corby, Northants and Tairco Limited of Norwich, a company within the multi-national

Tradax Group, has been appointed sole UK distributor for the Danish Rational Nova 2-row beet harvester. A 3-page FarmAds section included ads from Thurlow Nunn & Sons Ltd, Ernest Doe & Sons Ltd and Eastern Counties Farmers Ltd. We bought a mailing list and out they went – about 5,000 copies to the farmers of East Anglia. A day or so later, we couldn’t get in through the front door because so many magazines had been returned! So began the task of researching the returned copies and getting them into the hands of farmers. That’s where we started, and from that the magazine has grown to the 200 plus page magazine that lands on your desk each month – all 30,000 or so of you throughout the UK, and growing.

You can use both the magazine pages and the website – it’s not an either/or. Please give us a call if you need help. Our farmer readers in England and Wales can also use this service so please do give it a try. What have you got to lose? Many of you will remember Doug (my dad) who along with his wife Florence (my mother), started the magazine. Both worked tirelessly to make the magazine a success and were passionate about the business. I think Dad would have really liked to be a farmer but he was also passionate about classified advertising. His original business model did not involve editorial but he was persuaded by Thurlow Nunn MD John Thurlow, who also advertised on the first front cover, that editorial content would be welcome and the rest, as they say, is history. Dad took off his advertising hat for part of the week and donned an editorial cap and often developed photographs at the weekend. Black and white 35mm pictures in those days – digital was still a long way off. I remember the excitement when we got our first fax machine – we no longer had to wait for the advertising copy to arrive by post. It really was a different world – one that has advanced at the same speed as the development of farm machinery. In that first issue in September 1979 Fiat advertised its new 80 series range with 58–88hp, Ursus Bizon promoted its tractor and combine ranges with 85-120hp engines and 10–14ft cutting widths respectively and Manns introduced the extended Claas Dominator range of combines. Moving from a small town centre office (see pic on p4) to our current offices on the outskirts of Ipswich in 1995, formalised the changeover in the running of the business from Mom and Dad to my sister Julie and me. I became editor and Julie took on the role of finance director from Mom. Julie, who had previously been

working from home while looking after her young family, took one look at the ‘loft’ office that she would be expected to occupy when her youngest son Gregory started school, and said we “need to move because I’m not working there”. Leave it to me, she said, so we did, and she found our current location, Parkside, where we have been for the past 23 years.

Power in Action We have once again had to make the difficult decision not to go ahead with the Power in Action cultivation event in 2019. We have found it increasingly difficult to source land and although we had a late offer of land near Stowmarket, it’s really too far east to

attract the visitors and exhibitors we need to make the event a success.

And finally... A lonely bachelor decided to buy himself a pet, he went to the pet store and told the owner that he wanted to buy something unusual. After some discussion he bought a centipede, which came complete with a small box to use as its house. He wanted to celebrate with his new pet, and decided they would go to the pub. So he asked the centipede in the box, ‘Would you like to go down the local with me to have a beer?’ There was no answer from his new pet…. He waited a few minutes and then asked the centipede again, “How

about going to the pub and having a drink with me?” Again, there was no answer from his new pet centipede, so he waited a few minutes more, now getting more and more het up. He asked one more time, this time putting his face up against the centipede’s house and shouting, “Hey, in there! Would you like to go to the pub and have a drink with me?” This time, an irritated voice came out of the box: “Alright, I heard you the first time! I’m just putting my shoes on!” ■ *Graham Henderson’s Grain & Fertiliser Gossip is on p137 this month, returning to this page in February’s edition. Distributed by

Recommended Lists LG Skyscraper is the highest yielding wheat variety on the RL List.

Clearfield variety), has been added to the list.

Winter barley

New Recommended Lists boast exceptional disease resistance With 24 additions, new varieties on the Recommended Lists for cereals and oilseeds boast remarkable untreated yields, reported AHDB at a launch event in early December. Several new entrants have impressive disease resistance scores, including the highest winter wheat disease resistance rating for septoria tritici, said AHDB. With OSR untreated gross output figures included for the first time, the latest RL provides farmers with an essential foundation for disease management, it added.

Winter wheat Winter wheat Group 2 sees the addition of KWS Extase, with its exceptional untreated grain yield of 95 per cent (compared with the treated control varieties). A septoria tritici rating of 8.1 forms part of its impressive disease resistance package. The variety also has excellent resistance to yellow rust (9), solid resistance to brown rust (7), and good quality attributes (Hagberg falling number of 307


and specific weight of 78.6kg/hl). Also added to Group 2 is LG Detroit, which is claimed to be resistant to orange wheat blossom midge. Group 3 has also seen strong new contenders, with the addition of KWS Firefly and its good levels of resistance to septoria tritici (7), yellow rust (9) and brown rust (8). Two new Group 4 soft feed varieties – LG Skyscraper and LG Spotlight – have also been added. They are the highest yielding in their Group, LG Skyscraper the highest yielding on the list, and provide potential opportunities for grain distilling. In addition, LG Spotlight has one of the highest fusarium ear blight ratings on the RL.

Winter oilseed rape For the first time, untreated gross output figures for OSR varieties, which have been recommended for at least one year, have been included in the new RL. With recommendation for the UK, Aspire, Ballad and DK Expansion combine high gross outputs with stiff stems and good resistance to lodging. Aspire also has resistance to turnip yellows virus (TuYV). Two new OSR varieties have been added to the East/West region list – PT275 and George. Although based on limited data, George has the strongest resistance to phoma stem canker (rating of 8) on the RL. DK Exsteel has been added to the North region list. Three varieties have been recommended for specific purposes. Temptation has been added to the growing list of varieties with resistance to TuYV (in addition to Architect and Aspire). With resistance to common strains of clubroot, Crome has recorded gross output yields in excess of the treated control, marking a step-change in the performance of clubroot-tolerant varieties. Herbicide tolerance has also been recognised as a specific category and PT297CL, which has tolerance to specific imidazolinone herbicides (a

Four two-row feed varieties have been added to the list for winter barley. KWS Gimlet, LG Mountain and LG Flynn are the highest yielders of this group, at 104 per cent. Valerie also has a strong treated yield (102 per cent) and good untreated yield (87 per cent). Exceptional resistance to brown rust (9) forms part of its strong disease resistance package. The variety also has good quality (specific weight 70.2kg/hl), stiff straw and early maturity. Two new six-row hybrid winter feed varieties, SY Baracooda and SY Kingsbarn, have been recommended. Both have good yields and specific weights. SY Baracooda also has the greatest untreated yield (91 per cent) out of all the recommended winter barley varieties on the RL. Once again, untreated performance can be attributed to a strong disease resistance package that, notably, includes the strongest mildew resistance on the list (8).

Spring barley Added as a very high-yielding variety with potential for brewing (under test), Cosmopolitan is the highest yielding spring barley on the 2019 Recommended List. It has performed well in all regions and given good yields in untreated trials. Limited data suggests that this variety has relatively stiff short straw. Over three years of testing, Cosmopolitan has shown no major weaknesses in disease resistance, although data is limited. Cosmopolitan has mlo resistance to mildew, however, there is currently insufficient data to produce a robust disease rating. Growers are advised to speak to merchants before committing to this or other varieties in this position.

Breeders’ comments

KWS sales and cereals manager, Will Compson (right) said that Group 2 quality wheat KWS Extase’s impressive yield score and quality grain characteristics are only part of the variety’s appeal. “Aside from its solid yield performances, it is its untreated yield and allround outstanding disease resistance that will support its appeal to growers. At 8.1, KWS Extase heralds a new era in disease resistance being the first variety ever to have a septoria tritici resistance score greater than 8 which also makes it the best score of any variety on the 2019–20 Recommended List,” he said. “Its outstanding disease resistance is complemented by a score of 9 for yellow rust, average maturity that is equal to that of JB Diego, and one of the best lodging scores for either untreated or treated straw of any variety on the Recommended List. “Grain quality is similar to that of other Group continued over...

2 varieties with scores of 12.6 per cent for protein, a Hagberg falling Number of 307 seconds and a specific weight of 78.6kg/hl. “KWS Firefly joins the list as the highest-yielding Group 3 with a UK yield of 102 per cent of controls. It has good grain quality characteristics supported by good agronomics with excellent straw stiffness and maturity that is close to that of the official measure, JB Diego at +1 day. “KWS Firefly has good all-round disease resistance, especially to septoria tritici, which at a score of 7 is the best of the Group 3 varieties, and yellow rust, while its OWBM resistance will enhance its appeal to those heavily affected by midges in recent years. “It has performed strongly across the rotation delivering good yields as both a first and second cereal and across light and heavy soils,” said Mr Compson.

Soft wheat rules For the first time in over a decade, a soft wheat now tops the Recommended List at 106 per cent over control; LG Skyscraper is a real breakthrough with an automatic recommendation based on a yield which is a clear 2 per cent above all other varieties, claims Limagrain UK. “This is not a one off performance – LG Skyscraper has consistently performed over the past three contrasting years in official trials and with its high specific weight, good disease resistance plus midge resistance, it is well suited to all regions of the UK,” said Limagrain UK senior wheat breeder, Ed Flatman. “The variety has particular interest for growers in the north, with grain suitable for distilling and midearly maturity. LG Skyscraper’s early maturity offers growers elsewhere the advantage of top yields combined with the flexibility to spread harvest workloads, which is a rare attribute as highest yields often tend to be the result of extended grain fill from late maturity – which is not the case for LG Skyscraper.” As it’s a variety suited to the main sowing window and onwards, based on its growth and development – early sowing should be avoided, points out Mr Flatman. Yielding 104 per cent, LG Spotlight’s grain quality is impressive, with an average specific weight above

New feed barley hybrid, SY Kingsbarn.

Recommended Lists 78 and Hagberg approaching 300; a combination not seen before in soft wheat, continued Mr Flatman. “What underlies this high Hagberg is one of the highest levels of sprouting resistance normally only seen in top quality bread varieties, giving growers security when erratic weather conditions delay harvest.”

Hybrid barley The new feed barley hybrids, SY Kingsbarn and SY Baracooda, are the latest to be recommended from the Syngenta Hyvido breeding programme, commented Syngenta seeds marketing manager, Mark Bullen (right). “The key point about SY Kingsbarn is that it has produced higher yields than the UK’s current leading Hyvido hybrid, Bazooka. Kingsbarn has also delivered highly consistent yields over the last three very different growing seasons, as a percentage of control varieties. “SY Kingsbarn has also managed to improve on Bazooka’s already-good grain quality, in terms of specific weight, without losing out on disease resistance or standing power, where it offers shorter and stiffer straw. “All in all, SY Kingsbarn looks set to offer a dependable option especially in the East and West. We see it as being suitable for new hybrid barley growers, or for growers who may want to start looking at a step up from Bazooka without compromising on good agronomic characteristics,” he added. The second newcomer hybrid, SY Baracooda, offers a similar UK treated yield to current top yielding variety, Belmont, plus good specific weight, commented Mr Bullen, but its standout benefits include an exceptionally high untreated yield, very robust mildew resistance, and a very high yield in the West. “SY Baracooda also offers similarly tall straw to Bazooka and a similar resistance profile against diseases. Among the growers it might appeal to are mixed arable and livestock farmers looking for good grain output and quality but also good straw length.

Strong profile Two oilseed rape hybrids from Pioneer have made the 2019/20 AHDB Recommended List. PT275 has consistently produced high yields coupled with a strong agronomic profile and good oil content to secure an East/West region listing, said Corteva Agriscience seeds and inoculants sales manager Andy Stainthorpe (right). And, with a UK listing, PT279CL is the only Clearfield variety to make the Recommended List and is the highestyielding Clearfield variety to achieve either official registration in the UK or to be tested by the AHDB, he pointed out. With a joint highest yield of 104 per cent, non-dwarf PT275 gets a 6 for light leaf spot and a 5 for stem canker. “It’s there at the top of the List because it’s got a big yield and a solid set of agronomics,” Mr Stainthorpe said. “PT275 has no significant weaknesses and the trial results show it is now the hybrid with the strongest combination of yield and field characteristics that a grower can sow. “It has displayed real stability during three very different seasons and no matter what has been thrown at it PT275 has delivered fantastic yield.” PT279CL is another non-dwarf, double low variety and it scores 6 for light leaf spot and 5 for stem canker with an oil content of 45 per cent. *For more information on the newlylaunched Recommended Lists, including spring wheat and spring oat varieties, go to the AHDB website: ■

Spring weed control

No-compromise approach to spring cereal establishment Take as much time and care with pre-planting sprays in the spring as you would with your winter wheat T2 fungicide applications, growers are advised.

Spring cereals can only be effective in dealing with problem grass weeds if they are managed with sufficient establishment care and attention. This and the serious damage black-grass, brome, ryegrass and annual meadow grass can all do to crop performance makes a no-compromise approach to early weed management essential. Although spring barley and oats, in particular, can be highly competitive with grass weeds once growing strongly, they and spring wheat are acutely vulnerable to weed competition during establishment; especially where cold, wet conditions and less-than-ideal seedbeds restrict crop emergence and early growth. “Letting grass weeds off the hook at this stage in the season is hugely dangerous,” stressed national Grass Weed Action Initiative co-ordinator, Barrie Hunt (left). “They will compete aggressively with spring cereals, interfering with the rapid, even establishment essential to yields and profitability.

The very limited range of in-crop herbicide options available means they will then to go on to produce large numbers of seed heads and a heavy seed return, undermining the key rotational value of spring cropping. “Unfortunately, it’s all too easy to fail to control these weeds well enough in the late winter and early spring,” he pointed out. “They’re often well-entrenched in over-wintered stubbles and beneath cover crops. Frosting restricts their uptake and translocation abilities. And glyphosate uptake and performance can be markedly reduced under cool conditions and with sudden downpours. Then, as soon as spring warms up they go into stem extension and become that much harder to eliminate.”

Minimise weed emergence Under these circumstances, Mr Hunt urges growers need to bear down on grass weeds as hard as they can from the very start with an approach that integrates the most effective cover crop destruction and stubble cleaning closely with the best-managed spring

cultivation and drilling practice to minimise grass weed emergence in the new crop. As cover crops will have done their job by February, he sees no advantage in leaving them growing. In fact, he explains that heavy soils are likely to condition better for spring seedbeds if they have a good two weeks – preferably a month – without cover. This also gives the best opportunity to tackle any early weed growth with pre-planting glyphosate. “The best and safest strategy is to spray-off your covers in late January or early February,” he suggested. “That way you’ve cleared the decks for the most rapid and cleanest spring crop establishment. For both cover crop destruction and pre-planting weed control, he strongly recommends a modern Roundup proven to get more glyphosate into plants more rapidly and reliably at low temperatures than other formulations. He also advises using formulations with maximum rainfastness to take advantage of every spray window, and those with the shortest cultivation intervals for the least possible delay ahead of seedbed preparation and drilling. “It’s equally important to use the right rate for the job,” he insisted. “For established, tillered young blackgrass, 720g/ha of glyphosate should be sufficient. However 1,080g/ha may be required for particularly thick and advanced grass weeds. And tough perennials and harder-to-kill cover crop species like oil radish and vetches will need higher rates, often up to 1,800g/ha.


Best targeting For the most effective pre-planting control, Mr Hunt recommends around 100-litres/ha of water and a spray on the finer side of medium for the best targeting of seedling weeds. Cultivation ahead of drilling will help to hasten the demise of most weeds in his experience. It can also be a valuable way of minimising the risk of glyphosate resistance development. However, he warns that significant soil movement at drilling will stimulate the seedbed germination of black-grass, in particular, which could easily lead to just the sort of early weed competition you don’t want with spring cereals. He sees quality seedbeds as far more important than calendar date in spring cereal drilling, insisting that everyone needs to have both the patience to wait for the best possible soil conditions and the capacity to make the most of them when they occur. “Where drilling has to be delayed for a number of days after pre-planting treatment, consider including an approved glyphosate in your pre-emergence spray,” he concluded. “This can be invaluable in dealing with weeds that can emerge very rapidly with rising soil temperatures. Naturally, of course, application needs to be ahead of any crop emergence.” ■ 62189

“Water conditioners can improve performance in hard water areas, but remember that no amount of adjuvant can make up for insufficient glyphosate. And whatever you do, don’t treat pre-planting applications as a rush job. Take as much time and care as you would with your winter wheat’s T2 fungicide because you have only the one chance to get it right.”

Pea and bean Recommended Lists launched The 2019 PGRO Recommended Lists for combining peas, winter and spring beans was outlined by PGRO principal technical officer, Stephen Belcher (right), at the CropTec event in late November.

Combining peas Six combinable pea trials went through to harvest. 2018 trial yields (3.74t/ha) were down on the 5-year (4.43t/ha) average. Highest yields as in 2016 came from Hampshire at 4.73t/ ha. Levels of foliar disease were low. White-seeded variety Karpate gains a full recommendation for 2019. Yields at 104% are just 2% lower than the top yielding white pea Manager, which moves from P1 to P2 recommendation. Manager rates a 7 for downy mildew, 1 point ahead of Karpate. Kareni (101%) remains with a full recommendation while Mascara, a long-standing joint yield standard, is moved to the becoming outclassed.

Large blues LG Stallion and Vertix gain a full recommendation for 2019, giving yields close to the large blue standard Prophet. Bluetime, Karioka and Blueman all progress from P1 to P2 recommendation. Bluetime tops the yield rankings at 108% with yields from Karioka (105%) and Blueman (103%) a little lower. The downy mildew rating of Blueman slips from 9 to 8, but is still the top rated variety for the disease. Mankato (KWS) and Croft (LS Plant Breeding) with yields of 105 and 102% respectively, gain a P1 recommendation for 2019. Prophet, Bluetooth, Kingfisher and Daytona all remain with a full recommendation. Small blue Greenwood gains a full recommendation for 2019. Mantara and Rose remain as fully recommended Maple peas, and Aikido and Sakura remain as fully

recommended Marrowfats.

Spring beans Seven trials were taken through to harvest, with the highest and the lowest yields coming from two trials in North Yorkshire. 2018 trial yields of 4.0t/ha were lower than the 5-year (5.24t/ha) average. As with winter beans, foliar disease pressure was low, but black bean aphid and bruchid infestation was higher this year. A new sub-category of pale hilum beans has been introduced for spring beans: Low Vicine/Convicine (LVC). Vicine and convicine are antinutritional compounds that when present in high levels can give rise to favism in humans (those that have a deficiency in the activity of a particular enzyme) and can give performance issues when fed in animal feeds. Two new varieties Victus and Tiffany have been added in the LVC category of the RL with a P1 recommendation. Victus is the higher yielding of the two, matching

the top yielding spring bean Lynx at 104%. Downy mildew rates just one point behind Lynx at 6. Tiffany is a little behind on yield, at 100%, with a downy mildew rating of 5. LG Cartouche gains a full recommendation for 2019. Yields are a little behind the best, but with the exception of Maris Bead, protein content is significantly higher than other beans. Mallory moves from P1 to P2 recommendation, giving yields similar to Vertigo (101%) and has a downy mildew rating similar to Lynx (7). Lynx, Fanfare, Vertigo Fuego and Maris Bead all remain fully recommended within their respective categories.

Winter beans There is little change within the winter beans for 2019, but Vespa moves from P1 to P2 recommendation. Yields at 103% are just 1% lower than top yielding variety Tundra. Tundra, Bumble, Wizard and Honey all remain with a full recommendation. ■

Targeting high yields and market suitability Breeding varieties with a range of common traits such as stable higher yields, robust disease resistance, as well as sector specific traits like colour in marrowfats or protein content in white peas, offers UK growers the best opportunity to realise the full potential of pulses, said Limagrain UK’s new senior pulse breeder Will Pillinger, speaking at CropTec. “It’s about making sure that we produce varieties suitable for UK growers by offering high yields with agronomic characteristics that help to mitigate many of the challenges of the growing season,” he commented.

Under Mr Pillinger’s lead, Limagrain’s combinable pea breeding programme is focused on producing pea varieties with the best possible resistance to lodging, a range of maturities to suit different environments and robust disease resistance to downy and powdery mildew, asochyta, root rot (aphanomyces) and fusarium. “Depending on what markets the peas are being grown for there is a requirement for specific traits, for example colour retention in large blues and marrowfats, to protein levels in white peas,” he said, adding that newly recommended large blue pea LG Stallion which, based on its

high yields and excellent colour retention, already holds 7 per cent of the market. “We are also always looking for ways to increase the protein content in beans within our programme and have had success with the spring bean LG Cartouche, which has the highest protein content of any bean on the RL of 29.1 per cent.” On farm, LG Cartouche will stand well for an early harvest as it offers the joint highest standing power on the list (8) and a 7 for earliness to harvest, he concluded. ■ LG Stallion gained a full recommendation for 2019.

PCN control

Reduced rate nematicide available for spring 2019 Velum Prime begins a new era in nematode control that could extend crop protection to all growers, says Bayer.

A new nematicide with an unprecedentedly low application rate for use in potatoes will change the way growers approach potato cyst nematode control, says its manufacturer. Nematicide Velum Prime, based on the SDHI, fluopyram is being launched following seven years of intensive trials investigating its performance against both Globodera rostochiensis and G. pallida. It will be widely available to all growers for use in spring 2019. Introducing the new product, Bayer channel marketing manager for root crops, Neil Thompson (right), described Velum Prime as heralding a new era in nematode control that would extend crop protection to all growers, including those for which in-crop PCN management was not previously possible, such as those

with short-season salad crops. The liquid formulation delivers control of potato cyst nematode at levels approaching that of full-rate granular nematicides despite being applied at only a fraction of the rate required by conventional products. “At 250g of active substance when applied at the full label rate of 0.625-litres/ha, Velum Prime represents a compelling proposition for growers who previously had to use specialist equipment to apply 30–55kg/ha of a granular product,” he said. The initial approval is for an in-

furrow application at planting, similar to that practised with azoxystrobin, but Bayer hopes to receive additional approval for application as an overall spray applied using a conventional boom sprayer and incorporated before planting in time for the coming season. In addition, Velum does not have a harvest interval restriction, which will potentially extend nematode control to those unable to use granular nematicides, such as growers of salad crops. The product will also give growers a cost-effective option to follow the new AHDB guidance for even the slightest infestation of PCN to be taken seriously. “There are a range of prices of granular nematicides, but Velum Prime is likely to be around half the cost of granules,” said Mr Thompson. Significant volumes of the product would be available in year one, he added.

New mode of action Although its introduction is likely to be welcomed by growers, processors and retailers bringing a new mode of action to reduce reliance on organophosphate and carbamate chemistry, Mr Thompson was keen to point out that while it will play a significant role in PCN management, it is not a silver bullet. Velum causes nematode death through paralysis by depleting the levels of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the chemical used within all living cells to transport energy and support metabolism. Product trials have also identified

how growers might make the most of Velum’s potential to control populations. “Across more than 30 trials Velum delivered an average yield increase of 3.3t/ha and a reduction in eggs as measured Pf/Pi counts of 25 per cent.” There are many opportunities to use Velum solo in low/moderate PCN pressure situations but what will also appeal to growers however, is under higher PCN pressure, its performance in sequence with reduced rates of granular nematicides. “The use of Velum + half-rate Vydate (oxamyl) gave an increase of 2.6t/ha over the full rate (55kg/ha) Vydate-only treatment, while a similar treatment of Velum with half-rate Nemathorin 10G (fosthiazate) gave an average yield increase of 0.3t/ha over the full rate (30kg/ha) Nemathorinonly treatment,” said Mr Thompson. Although not currently a label recommendation, additional trials investigating its performance against tobacco rattle virus (spraing) – a virus transmitted by free-living nematodes – found in four trials, Velum Prime in-furrow reduced the incidence of spraing from 17.45 to 7.65 per cent. This outperformed the standard Vydate at 210g/100m row which reduced the level of spraing to 9 per cent. Bayer is working to have this use added to the label for future seasons. “Velum is by no means the complete answer to the problem posed by nematodes, but it will be part of the solution,” says Mr Thompson. “It will be for growers and agronomists to determine how best to use it in their particular situations to contribute to protecting quality and improving yield of their crops.” ■

The seminars at the recently-held CropTec event covered topics including crop protection, crop nutrition, crop breeding and crop establishment, and were a popular destination for farmers and agronomists alike. Heather Briggs reports. Sulphur is an often overlooked yet essential plant nutrient which is a building block of crop yield and quality, said Yara UK agronomist Natalie Wood (right). Sulphur is also linked with nitrogen efficiency; which may be because both elements are involved in the formation of protein and chlorophyll and are linked in the conversion of nitrate to amino acids. Sources of sulphur include mineralisation from organic matter in the soil, but in many cases these are now depleted, and using organic manure is not a reliable source, she said. “Even if sulphur is present in the soil it does not mean it is available for the plant to uptake. This makes it hard to build reserves in the soil.” Deposition from the atmosphere used to be one of the main sources of the mineral, but with the fall in pollution levels it can no longer be considered a viable source. “Mineral fertilisers are the most reliable way to ensure the crop has a supply of sulphur; those which contain sulphate sulphur are the best because it means that the sulphur is already available rather than having to mineralise in the soil before being taken up.” Soil type can also make a difference to uptake; lighter soils are more prone

to deficiency as they are more prone to leaching, said Ms Wood. “Loamy sand could see up to 85 per cent of sulphur being leached; so if you apply 60kg/ha of SO3 in February, 51kg/ha could have leached by May, which is right in the period of active growth.” She would normally recommend 40–50Kg/ha for cereals and 70–80kg/ha for oilseed rape, but if growers are on a responsive site, they may find they need up to a further 30kg/ha. However, detecting insufficient supply can be challenging as soil analysis tests are not always reliable, so grain analysis tends to be undertaken after harvest to find out how well the sulphur strategy had worked. “This is not ideal, but it gives you an idea so you can tweak your strategy for the next year.” Potassium (K) is another important mineral, playing a key role in water use efficiency, which becomes more evident under drought conditions. “It is present in the guard cells of the stomata, which control water regulation. As a result, if it is deficient, these will not work as efficiently and the plant will lose more water through transpiration. “This is increasingly important as we are pushing N rates and getting bigger crops but have recently had increasingly dry springs.” Compared with N and P, K is taken

up in a short time-space, with uptake of up to 7.7kg/ha/K/day during the rapid growth phase. During this time, N uptake is 4.5kg/ha/day and P is 1.6kg/ ha/day. “Independent of soil indices, I would recommend applications of 35kg/K/ha in spring, so it is available to the plant at this crucial time. “If you are below Index 1, you will need an autumn application as well for establishment, as well as the necessary 35kg/ha in spring when crop demand is so high,” she concluded.

Better spraying accuracy Hitting your target when spraying is crucial to efficacy, according to Syngenta New Farming Technologies specialist Sam Stephenson. Wind speed, which can fluctuate

dramatically even while the spray operator is in the field, will have a huge influence on spray pattern and coverage, along with potential drift. “The mantra is ‘Go low; Go slow; Get covered’,” said Mr Stephenson. “The slower you go, the better; Dutch farmers typically travel at just 6kph. It is much easier for the active to hit target at this speed, but would have huge implications for sprayer output and covering large acreages.” Where spray operators are travelling at 16kph or more, however, boom stability and resulting turbulence behind the sprayer will affect how much active hits the target. “It’s about finding the optimum compromise between efficiency and efficacy, which will be different for all farms and situations.” When it comes to black-grass control, he reported Syngenta trials have repeatedly shown higher water volumes can help improve coverage and results. “In perfect conditions 100-litres/ha may deliver adequate results, but where chemistry is applied at 200-litres/ha, we have seen consistently better and more reliable control. “Working at 400-litres/ha has shown marginal further improvements, but is really time-consuming to do; in practice it is probably only worthwhile with very high value crops. “Future precision application is likely to improve as innovations in spore traps, weather stations, management systems and application maps become commercially available,” he added.

Future-proofed Lists Increasing pest resistance and withdrawal of plant protection products means that technical solutions from crop genetics are likely to play an increasingly important role in the Recommended List (RL), said continued over...

Sam Stephenson said new 90 per cent drift reduction nozzles significantly increase the amount of chemistry that gets to the target with pre-emergence applications.

AHDB senior crop production systems scientist and RL lead Jenna Watts. The current RL project is due to stay in place until 2021, but it needs to continue to provide useful information on appropriate varieties for regional, agronomic and end-use requirements. “We are taking a close look at our systems; while the treated yields show genetic potential, there are other areas that growers would like to see such as yields under commercial situations,” said Dr Watts. Additionally, as control of septoria tritici using azoles and SDHIs is becoming more difficult, and there is mounting light leaf spot resistance to azoles in oilseed rape, the agronomic package may need to have a different weighting in the future, she added. The RL may also need to include varietal resistance to new pests and diseases, or those whose geographical spread has broadened. Explaining a little of how the RL works, she emphasised that getting a variety onto the RL is challenging, as from over 800 which enter the initial trials, 3–6 are finally accepted after 5 years. “We are looking for a balance of features; first we have a yield target; if

CropTec it is above the comparator varieties, it can expect to be recommended unless it has important weaknesses. “If it is below that, it would need to have additional strengths – if it is more than two per cent below the comparator’s yield, it would only be recommended if it had something special, such as innovative traits. “As we move forward we may also be looking for better photosynthetic efficiency, drought tolerance, early flowering as well as insect and disease resistance,” she added.

Designing future wheat Lack of genetic diversity makes the design of future wheat more difficult, warned NIAB director of genetics and breeding Alison Bentley (right). Wheat is subject to demanding end-use requirements, which has led to focused breeding programmes, she explained, adding that one of the most important lines is from Robigus which is a parent, grandparent, or greatgrandparent of many of the varieties currently grown.

“Understanding the reasons behind the popularity of Robigus is key, but it also reflects the narrow genetic base we have for wheat to work from.” To address this and help drive development of new wheat germplasm containing the next generation of key traits, a five-year project looking at genetic materials has been funded by BBSRC. “Modern wheat occurred from a chance hybridisation between Wild Emmer (triticum dicoccoides) and Wild Goat Grass (Aegilops tauschii),” explained Dr Bentley. “Wild Emmer also developed into durum wheat and these goat grasses still grow naturally in the wild, so we have been able to recreate the natural event by crossing durum wheat with goat grass; and then crossing it with Robigus. “We hope they will provide useful variation for disease and agronomic traits , especially nutrient use.” Other work being done within the project includes exploring the possibility of increasing efficiency and sustainability, enhanced health

benefits and durable pest and disease resistance.

Soil science Soil, engineering and hydrological datasets are being combined to update and improve a free-to-use UK Soil Observatory website, said British Geological Survey’s Henry Holbrook. New soil descriptions are planned, to provide useful information for growers and agronomists on soil characteristics and the foundations that influence texture, structure, drainage and chemistry across our landscape. The work will highlight areas of soils likely to be prone to compaction and run-off. Both these problems can occur as a result of physical properties such as clay content and aggregate stability of the soil. Soil moisture and its variation between fields is another area of focus, with the aim of building better understanding of soil-water processes to provide real-time values to forecast possible changes in soil moisture. “Knowing soil moisture levels and how they are likely to change will help growers make decisions about when to take heavy machinery on the land.” ■

Establishment booster gives crops a super start A successful microgranule starter fertiliser already in use on 600,000ha overseas was launched at CropTec by Kent-based JS Tech. Super Start provides essential nutrients immediately to the developing plant. As well as phosphorous (35%) and nitrogen (10%), it contains sulphur (5%), zinc (2%) and magnesium (2%) to encourage root development and boost establishment. Placed next to the seed as it is drilled, the microgranule formulation has around 300 times the surface area of conventional fertilisers, ensuring a faster release and quick availability following autumn or spring sowing, says JS Tech. Super Start is already used in several European countries, including France, Germany and Holland, as well as Latin America. Currently over 15,000t are produced annually in Serbia by Elexir Zorka. JS Tech is expecting substantial interest, initially for maize, potatoes and OSR, according to the company’s managing director Simon Stell, though spring cereals, vegetables and sugar beet would also benefit.   “Super Start is very popular particularly with maize growers,” he stated, “where the wide rows make taking the fertiliser to the seed especially effective. Whatever the crop, applying fertiliser as you drill is highly efficient. Not only is it placed right there where it is needed, but also saves the cost, labour and logistics of a separate spreading operation. With weather conditions seemingly more unpredictable, getting crops established quickly and strongly has never been more important”. JS Tech’s team on the company’s stand at CropTec.

Decision time for winter and spring cereals

Left: Black-grass emergence in early drilled wheat (24/9), and (right) in late drilled wheat (23/10).

Changing weather and soil conditions this autumn have led to stark differences in blackgrass control between early- and late-drilled crops. Where black-grass counts are high, spring cropping might be a good choice to control populations. “This year, fortune favours the brave,” says NIAB weed management specialist, John Cussans (left). “Conditions have changed dramatically within the season and it shows; the difference between black-grass levels in early- and late-drilled crops is remarkable. “It was very warm and dry at the start of the season. Mid-autumn we started to get some rain and by the end of October, conditions were nearperfect in most places. Those that delayed drilling were able to spray off the late flush of black-grass and benefit from the wetter, colder soils optimising pre-emergence herbicide performance. “Later drilled crops are looking remarkably clean. Early drilled wheat however, is not,” he observes. Bayer commercial technical manager Darren Adkins (right), agrees. “It’s amazing the difference just two weeks have made. Early sown winter wheat hasn’t got ‘high’ black-grass populations as such, but in many cases there’s certainly more than you’d like.” In early-drilled crop trials he reports an average of 10 black-grass plants/m2. “It’s not high but it’s still too high for long term population reduction. “Growers in this situation now face the awkward decision of what to do next. Spray off and a spring crop? Or try and get a contact postemergence herbicide like Monolith (mesosulfuron + propoxycarbazone) on in the spring?”

A challenge It’s a decision that Yorkshire farmer, Matthew Copley, had to take on his 263ha farm. With

medium-heavy soils late drilling can be a challenge but this year, conditions were ideal for stale seedbeds and good pre-emergence herbicide applications. “There’s just one field that has some heavy black-grass patches. Last year we introduced spring barley into that field’s rotation. Had we tried to continue with winter cropping alone, we’d have ended up in a right mess!” Mr Copley applied Avadex (tri-allate) to the spring barley last year. “While it didn’t remove 100 per cent of the black-grass it did enough together with the cultural controls. Most of the control came from the spring cropping itself – the field was ploughed in late autumn, had a flush of black-grass in spring, then we were able to drill the spring barley.” Mr Copley takes a flexible approach to rotations, reacting to black-grass populations on a field-by-field basis. “I’d like to return to winter cropping but whether we will depends on how the black-grass population reacts.” Ben Stroud, a mixed dairy and arable farmer from the East Midlands, also uses crop rotations to manage black-grass. He describes the introduction of grass leys and spring crops as the ‘turning point’ on his 222ha farm. “The moderate black-grass pressure is now manageable. In 2014 we had some fields that we couldn’t put a winter crop in. Now, the population is decreasing year-on-year. “The first big change involved making the most of the mixed farming. We started rotating the arable land with forage crops, using short-term leys – either a two-year grass ley or three-year lucerne ley. We’re putting combinable crops into our grassland too.” Barley is Mr Stroud’s spring crop of choice. “It does well on the heavy land,” he says. “Although last year it didn’t go in until the beginning of May. It was just too wet to get it in any sooner after the

very wet spring. You really do have to wait for the right conditions.” The spring barley harvested completely clean and Mr Stroud didn’t use any black-grass herbicide. He just used an SU to take out broad-leaved weeds post-emergence. “This year some spring barley will go into cover crops – they are helpful, seem to suppress the black-grass and reduce the burden in the following crop – and some is going straight into stubble after failed OSR due to the dry autumn.” For strong establishment in the spring Mr Stroud emphasises the importance of the right seedbed conditions and a robust seed rate (450–500 seed/m2). “It’s better to drill later when the majority of the black-grass has emerged,” he notes. Mr Stroud isn’t planning any autumn post-emergence herbicide on his winter wheat. Delaying drilling until the last week of October followed by a robust pre-em has left fields looking really clean. Mr Copley will be applying Atlantis (mesosulfuron and iodosulfuron) plus pendimethalin post-emergence. When making spring applications he recommends spraying as early as possible. “As long as the black-grass is awake, we’ve had good results. You have to go early, as once the black-grass is beyond two leaf stage, it’s very hard to get the level of control.”

Active growth John Cussans agrees, adding; “As early as possible yes but for ALS herbicides (including Atlantis) active growth of the weed is critical – a week with overnight air temperatures over 4ºC will be enough to stimulate grass growth.” Being ready to go in spring is key to delivering successful post-emergence treatments. “Early spring spray days are so short,” observes Mr Copley. “Contact herbicides need a drying leaf so you might only get 2–3 hours of optimum conditions, before night-time dew starts to form.” “Good spray days are so few and far between that it’s important to be thinking and preparing for them now so you’re ready to go as soon as the opportunity arises,” adds Mr Adkins. ■

Precision farming

Proof that precision agronomy boosts profits Agronomist Sally Morris and farmer Frazer Jolly.

Recent trials conducted by Hutchinsons prove that the use of its precision farming, cloud-based application system, Omnia, results in yield increases and lower costs of production, says the company. By comparing variably drilled wheat alongside a farm standard rate on spilt fields and taking them to yield, statistically-valid work has proven that using Omnia Precision Agronomy can increase yields by an average of 0.6t/ha, worth £99/ha (based on wheat at £165/t), says Hutchinsons precision technology specialist, Nick Strelczuk. “In fact in some areas, this went up to 1.4t/ha or £240/t which is a significant increase – and was achieved with lower costs of production,” he adds. “This is really exciting news for the industry as it is the first time that we have been able to prove the financial benefit of the features that using Omnia for variable rate applications offers to growers, such as more even establishment and targeting inputs,” he says. “Importantly, this comes at a time when the industry is being challenged with improving productivity in light of the imminent changes to support payments, while also demonstrating sustainability.” “The winter wheat trials were 62592

carried out on fields that ranged from having very little variation in soil type and condition to those with significant variation,” explains Mr Strelczuk. “Fields with greater variation will more obviously benefit from variable rate applications, but we also wanted to investigate if there were benefits to be had in fields with less variation.” The first trial was carried out at Grove Farm near Bourne, Lincs on a field of marine clay that had very little variation in soil type and condition, with a crop of KWS Zyatt winter wheat. The field was split down the middle and on the 5th October, one side drilled at a standard seed rate of 204kg/ha equating to 392 seeds/m2, while the other half was variably drilled. To create the variable drilling plan within Omnia, agronomist Alex Richardson created maps of soil texture, seedbed condition and weed pressure which were inputted along with variety and drilling information, and a detailed seed rate plan was generated. “The variable rate plan

recommended an average seed rate of 206kg/ha or 397 seeds/m2, but this ranged from 189kg/ha in the better parts of the field to 228kg/ha in the poorer areas,” he says. “There were obvious differences in the two sides of the field on emergence, with the variably drilled side looking more evenly established – which was confirmed by a biomass picture taken in May.” Following this, a total of 312kg/ha ammonium nitrate (AN) was applied to the field later in May, and on the variably managed side of the field this ranged from 295–325kg/ha. “The total field averaged 8.84t/ha, however the variably drilled crop outyielded the farm standard by 0.47t/ha, that’s worth £77/ha.

Increased yields “It’s clear from this that even in fields with very little variation, that using Omnia for variable rate applications increases yields,” explains Mr Richardson. When combining this yield data with Omnia’s cost of production tool, it is possible to calculate the cost/tonne of producing the crop for different areas of the field, he points out. “The calculations showed that costs for the area drilled variably were on average £9/t less than the farm standard of £99/t – so not only were

we getting better yields but the cost of producing these yields was lower with Omnia.” The second financial validation trial was carried on Saltby Farms in Leicestershire on a predominantly sandy loam field, but with a clay loam strip running right through the middle. Once again the field was mapped for soil texture, condition and also slug pressure, explains agronomist Sally Morris who worked closely with farms manager Frazer Jolly on the trial. The crop of RGT Illustrious winter wheat was drilled on 5th October. The standard side of the field was drilled at 178kg/ha or 356 seeds/m2 while the Omnia side was drilled at rates that varied from 164–207kg/ha which was an average of 182kg/ha. The average final nitrogen application was 404kg/ha Sulphan across the field, but the variably applied rates ranged from 365–462kg/ha Sulphan. “The results were extraordinary; while yields averaged at 9.1t/ha the variably managed side out-yielded the standard by 1.4t/ha which equates to £231/ha at a feed wheat price of £165/t – that’s a significant financial benefit,” says Sally. “When the yields were taken into the cost of production mapping, it became clear how much different areas of the field were costing to grow; costs from Omnia variable applications were only £93/t compared to the farm standard of £121/t,” she adds. ■

What is Omnia? Omnia Precision Agronomy is a precision farming, cloud-based application that allows the user to overlay data on soil type, nutrient levels, slug levels, seedbed conditions and weed populations to derive optimum variable application plans. This ensures that every part of every field accurately receives the appropriate inputs to maximise productivity, while minimising environmental impact.

Applied Protection Guards Ltd

Presents a new and improved CABGUARD


A Cab glass protector for tractors that is so bespoke it accommodates all Modern Tractors. Once installed the Guards are designed to make a farmers life easier once the clip is installed its a matter of seconds with thumb screws for quick on and off application that causes zero damage to windows. It is Secure, robust, road usable and suitable for all windows without a frame. The new bespoke clip that makes the highway plus what it is, clips over the glass under the door seal and once fitted stays with the tractor. Made from a durable and UV resistant plastic, the design spaces the Cabguard away from the glass and is held on by a finger tight nut.

CABGUARD Highway plus

"We've ran our tractors on the classic CabGuard™ and have never had an issue with the quality or robustness of the product, but have always been concerned of loosing the guard to high speed travel on the roads that cover the Estate: As soon as I found out that APG had a new design in progress I was interested in what had been developed, based on what was explained on the phone I liked the concept and asked the team at APG to put me first on the list.With the new CabGuard HighWay Plus™ fitted to our 18 plate Valtra T174 I immediately knew that this was a far superior product, the fact that after the first initial installation it would then take seconds for an individual to remove and re-apply after cleaning. The fitting is clean, tidy and does not interfere with visibility from the tractor seat. All in all a good quality product ensuring the tractor cab glass is protected from fast moving debris at all times.” James Brown,Farm Manager, South Pickenham Estates

Half a century marked by transport and slurry specialist A celebration event attended by customers and dealers marked 50 years of agricultural machinery production by slurry handling specialist Joskin. David Williams reports. Based in Soumagne, Belgium, Joskin’s product line-up includes slurry transport, handling and application equipment, manure spreaders, trailers and grassland machinery. Most of its production is purchased for use in Europe but exports to destinations in other continents are increasing with regular demand from more than 50 countries. The celebration event featured examples from all the ranges and was also an ideal opportunity to launch new products which included slurry spreading booms, muck spreaders and silage trailers.

New spreading booms Joskin has launched Penditwist and Pendislide Basic booms to complement the Pendislide Pro launched earlier this year. The Pendislide Pro is available in 12.0, 13.5, 15.0 and 18.0m widths and has skids to avoid transference of slurry and soil to leaves. Small gauge wheels allow

operation without a linkage mounting system, and a pendulum frame provides accurate ground following independent of the tanker. Also included is the Twist anti-drip device, standard on all Joskin spreading booms, preventing slurry spillage and dripping by lifting the hoses to create a block. Penditwist and Pendislide Basic booms are available in 6.0 and 7.5m working widths, and mount either on an existing linkage or direct to the tanker rear manhole, provided it is at least 600mm diameter. Joskin believes there will be considerable demand for use with small new tankers as well as to retrofit on older machines.

Manure spreaders The muck spreader range has been increased to 6 models – 4 with vertical beaters and 2 horizontal, and providing a line-up of 37 variants. Capacities are from 8–25m³ without extensions, and options such as

a weighing system and Isobus management mean users can apply accurately, even at low rates. The latest addition to the range is the Siroko low volume model. The body is fully galvanised and narrow, allowing large wheels to be fitted. The suspended drawbar can be set for low or high hitches. Beater diameter and overall size is increased, although the tube is smaller than the previous version allowing longer retractable blades to be fitted. These improve shredding ability and spread performance. The new beaters have allowed a modified body shape; including higher sides, and higher application rates. The rear guillotine door has external rams, helping reduce blockages and improving access for maintenance. The lights are relocated below the beaters, reducing dirt contamination. A transparent plastic cover protects the lights in the field, and can be folded clear for road use. Floor drive chain sprockets have a new profile with straight edge tines for reduced slippage and wear. Knife working life is improved with construction from Hardox 450 10mm steel, replacing 6mm previously, and they are reversible.

Forage trailers

All-new Silo-Space 2 forage wagons offer increased usable capacity and faster unloading than previous models.

Made in Belgium, Joskin’s Silo-Space 2 series replaces previous Silo-Space models. A new self-supporting body structure replaces previous double frame construction so that the running gear and drawbar are attached direct to the box. This design reduces weight and floor height allowing higher sides and additional volume. The tapered body gains 4cm

width from front to back and the front wall is completely redesigned with a 22-degree slope relative to the tractor, instead of 10 degrees before, increasing usable volume. The front wall folds back to optimise unloading and is 160mm higher than the trailer sides.

Unloading process Aiding the unloading process, the front insert folds back hydraulically throwing accumulated material back into the main bed. The painted mesh front wall makes it easier to work at night with reduced reflection from the tractor’s rear lights. Hydraulic suspension is standard and closed hydraulic circuits provide stability. A leaf-sprung drawbar is standard, but a hydraulic version is an upgrade option. The PTO-driven unloading floor is split longitudinally into 2 sections. Unloading speed is 25 per cent faster than the Silo-Space version. The new 4-model Silo-Space 2 range offers capacities from 44–54m³ or 48–59m³, when material is heaped above the sides.

High spec slurry solution A new Joskin slurry tanker was the obvious choice for Newport, Shropshire-based Stockton Heath Ltd, part of Stockton Grange Farm. Partner Simon Heath took delivery of the new tanker in late summer to transport and apply slurry from the farm’s 1,000-cow dairy herd and 1.5MW AD plant. More than half the slurry produced is applied through the tanker and the remainder is fed to an injector by umbilical cord. continued over...

Machinery suggests sending slurry for analysis but by the time we receive results the slurry has been on the field for a few weeks.”

Losing potential yield

A top-specification 28,000-litre Joskin Euroliner slurry tanker with slurry constituent sensing and automatic rate control has been supplied to Shropshire-based Stockton Heath Ltd, part of Stockton Grange Farm.

The tanker is carried on six large flotation tyres to minimise ground compaction. Hydraulic suspension, front and rear axle hydraulic steering and front axle lift during turns allow the tanker to tow well on the road and in the field. ...from previous page

The Euroliner 28,000-litre tanker has tri-axle running gear with large flotation tyres to maximise opportunities for use on soft ground. Slurry is applied through a rearmounted Terraflex injector, ensuring almost all ends up below the surface. “Our previous tanker was also a Joskin, and impressed us with its build quality and reliability since we purchased it approximately nine years ago,” explained Simon. “Therefore opting for another Joskin was an easy decision, although we did consider other brands too, as it’s a very large investment.”

Demanding crop regime Arable crops are almost all for home use, including 500ha maize, 60ha wholecrop rye and 120ha of energy beet for the cattle and the AD plant. Potatoes are also grown, but sold from the farm. Beet are washed and chopped for the AD plant, which also makes them an ideal high-energy feed. “Because we have to de-stone, wash and mash the crop for the digester, we looked at using the finished product as cattle feed which has proved incredibly successful,” he explained. “The cattle love it and potential milk yield per hectare is almost 40 per cent higher than maize, when the dry matter content and

energy yield is considered. Because it’s proving so successful we will grow an extra 40ha next year. “We have a heavy bias towards spring cropping,” he continued, “and our only winter crops are rye and re-seeded grassland. We are restricted as to when we can apply slurry due to NVZ restrictions until early spring, so with all the spring crops needing a dose of slurry before planting we have to apply a lot of slurry quickly when the opportunity is there.”

Variable quality Slurry is from three sources; the AD plant, slurry pit and the slurry lagoon, and nutrient value and concentration varies between sources and day to day. Because the slurry is so variable a hand analyser has been used to calculate the required dose, but crop striping has been a constant issue. “Nitrogen is the controlling factor for us and we tend to be cautious to avoid exceeding the permitted levels, which often means doing two applications. But, looking at the fields as the crops grow makes this system’s limitations obvious where an application of concentrated slurry from the AD plant has been followed by two loads of almost pure water from the slurry pit after a day’s heavy rain. The Environment Agency

Simon said because the farm is so cautious about its nitrogen application, it usually under-applies which means losing out on potential yield. “We were doing what we could to maximise benefit by using the Terraflex injector. This injects slurry down the back of the tines with hardly any left on top, so little nutrient value is lost due to volatilisation. It has a cultivating effect but three rows of flexible tines leave the land extremely level, to the extent hare coursers have attempted, unsuccessfully, to travel over fields soon after slurry application.” With slurry so important to all the farm’s activities a solution was needed which would enable maximum benefit to be gained from the nutrient value, while remaining environmentally friendly. “We started considering constant live slurry analysis by Near Infra-Red (NIR) sensor during application, and could see it offered a significant opportunity,” he said. In 2016 Joskin formed an agreement with John Deere that the HarvestLab 3000 NIR sensor would be available for its tankers and this arrangement was particularly attractive to Simon with main Joskin and John Deere dealer Rea Valley Tractors nearby. “We already dealt with Rea Valley and knew we could rely on great back-up which was a major factor,” he said. The farm had operated a 25,000-litre Joskin slurry tanker for around 9 years and Simon said it was almost totally reliable, with the only significant breakdown caused by an after-market central greasing system. “It was excellent and always impressed us with its design so although we looked at several other brands as a new tanker was a significant investment, it would have taken a lot to persuade us to move from Joskin.”

“Since we took on the Joskin franchise approximately seven years ago most demand has been for slurry tankers,” explained Rea Valley Tractors Newport depot manager Tom Shakeshaft. “These are top quality, professional machines so predictably customers tend to be larger dairy farms or AD plants, and contractors servicing multiple dairy farms needing high capacity twinaxle models. Customers like the high standard of manufacture including running gear that far exceeds what most other companies offer. Tanks are galvanised inside and out for a long life and implements are mainly chassis mounted, relieving stresses on the tank. “I was involved in helping identify an ideal specification for Simon and, with the John Deere HarvestLab 3000 sensor, the tanker is ideally suited to his demanding situation.”

Well-equipped The Joskin tanker was ordered, partfunded through an EU Leader Grant for which it gained approval due to its environmentally friendly and efficient application control systems. The steel tank is galvanised inside and out, then painted for a long working life. A 9,000-litres/min Vogelsang volumetric lobe pump ensures rapid filling through a built-in articulated filling arm although a funnel filler is also fitted. A 28-outlet macerator distributor, rather than the ‘scatter plate’ system on the previous machine, ensures even feed rate to all nozzles. The running gear includes Trelleborg 750/60R30.5 flotation tyres with hydraulic steering of the front and rear axles, and the front axle also lifts clear of the ground during tight turns. Proportional load-regulated air braking is fitted. A load-transfer system pushes weight forward to the tractor to maximise traction in the field. Full Isobus control from the in-cab Joskin touch-screen and joystick is included, with a separate John Deere continued over...

meter before it left the yard and a calculation was then made regarding application rate and speed. We didn’t even know how many loads would be needed for a field. Now, the on-board sensing tells us precisely how much is needed so we know when a field will be finished and the next will be started.” ...from previous page

display used for the NIR sensing. An after-market automatic greasing system was specified. “Getting under a slurry tanker to grease it is no-one’s favourite task,” explained Simon. “So having automatic greasing of a machine with so many moving parts seems an obvious upgrade, and ensures it is done as required. We had problems with the previous system so this time we opted for dual-line greasing and so, even if nozzles are blocked, grease is still supplied to the bearings.”

Immediate benefit The tanker arrived in late summer and was used immediately to make the most of the technology before slurry application had to cease for the winter. The HarvestLab sensor measures nitrogen, phosphorous and potash content and the system allows a constant application rate for any one to be set, with limits on each of the others. The operator decides the appropriate travel speed while the slurry flow is automatically adjusted to maintain the nitrogen application rate set, without allowing other nutrient limits to be exceeded. “It’s easy for the operator as RTK guidance and automatic steering maintain precise positioning and the user just has to select a suitable travel speed,” said Simon. “The John Deere sensor is so easy to set up and use. The software is very user friendly.” Because precise nutrient content is constantly measured and recorded, accurate field maps are produced detailing exactly how much nitrogen, phosphorous and potash have been applied. “This is reassuring for us as nitrogen in particular is such a contentious issue,” explained Simon. “Having these records allows us to prove that limits are never exceeded, but also allows us to confidently maximise application rates to make the most of potential yields. “Another benefit is that we know exactly how much of the other two elements have been applied. We use the information to calculate what we need to apply as granules through

our Amazone ZA-TS disc spreader to optimise those levels too.” Timeliness is also improved. “Previously we didn’t know how long applications would take, because each load was measured by hand

Pleased with decision “We are delighted with the tanker,” concluded Simon. “It’s very much a professional machine, although it was priced accordingly. Joskin hasn’t

compromised at all on its construction and the fully galvanised, painted tank should withstand many years’ use – we have planned on it being our main tanker for the next 10 years. “It’s perfectly matched with our 396hp Fendt 939. Our previous tanker’s weight transfer system wasn’t particularly effective, but the new tanker’s is significantly improved to the extent that, if it isn’t disengaged before a headland turn, steering is difficult. Full commercial running gear and brakes make it very safe on the road; the operator loves it and finds it easy to use and for me the benefit is improved efficiency and work rates and the knowledge we can safely make the most of our slurry to maximise crop performance. ■

Partnership increases customer appeal

The Claas Eastern stand at the 2018 Midlands Machinery Show featured both Lemken and Horsch products for the first time.

Late November’s Midlands Machinery Show provided the ideal occasion to announce a strategic partnership involving three premium brands. David Williams reports. Claas main dealer Claas Eastern looks after customers in Lincolnshire, Yorkshire, Nottinghamshire and most of Derbyshire from its eight branches. Carefully selected brands complement the main Claas product offering, allowing the dealer to cater for the needs of a diverse farm customer base across the eastern region. The latest addition to its brand portfolio is Horsch, and although the dealer’s representation doesn’t commence officially until the 1st January 2019, the popular show was chosen to announce news of the appointment.

Quality range The partnership covers all Horsch cultivation and seeding machinery, as well as trailed and self-propelled sprayers. The company’s range of cultivation equipment, seed drills and trailed and self-propelled sprayers are developed on the Horsch family’s own farms to suit professional farmers. With their own farm, the Horsch family understands the needs of farmers and strives to help them increase productivity in a sustainable manner. A diverse product portfolio focuses on performance and reliability and includes the very latest Terrano GX cultivator, Pronto NT drill and entry-level Leeb 4 AX trailed sprayer.

“Many visitors to the stand had already heard about the new partnership,” said Horsch UK general manager Stephen Burcham. “The reaction was very positive, including from current Horsch users who are delighted that such great service and parts support will be available through Claas Eastern. Superb back up during the busy harvest period requires professional teams of highly trained engineers and our product line-up fits perfectly, with these workshop teams available to support cultivators, drills and sprayers.” Stephen said Claas Eastern has already committed to a large investment in product and parts stock. “There is a determination to hit the ground running,” he explained. “Claas dealers know the importance of being able to supply what is needed at short notice to keep machines working.”

Back up assured Claas Eastern third party franchise manager and media manager Richard Sharman confirmed that dealer teams are equipped to provide full back up from the start. “Sales, service and parts teams have already attended Horsch training in the UK and in February there will be intensive product training at Horsch Germany. We are investing

Claas Eastern, Lemken and Horsch teams are pictured on the stand. Back row (l-r) Claas Eastern’s Chris Mackman, Clive Woods, Scott Lea, Harriet Simpson and Rob Gledden.

in machinery for demonstrations and many popular models will be held in stock between our branches. “We have a superb relationship with Lemken having taken on the franchise two years ago,” he continued, “and the Midlands Machinery Show, at which products from both brands were on the stand, demonstrated perfectly how well Horsch and Lemken ranges complement each other. Each offers products not available from the other and, for customers, the new agreement allows us to offer exactly what is needed – from Lemken ploughs and specialist cultivation equipment to Horsch tine drills and self-propelled sprayers. Our other main brands; KRM and Samson also offer premium quality non-competing products and, whatever the size or type of agricultural business we can supply and support almost any size or type of machine.” The positive reaction from customers to Claas Eastern’s appointment means sales teams already have many requests for demonstrations in early 2019. Products are available to order from Claas Eastern now and, by the time this magazine was dispatched in mid-December, two of the latest Horsch AX trailed sprayers and a number of cultivators and drills had already been ordered from the dealer. Regional exclusivity comes into effect from 1st January 2019, when Claas Eastern joins Claas Western and Manns dealers in offering both Claas and Horsch machinery. “Each Claas dealer across the UK operates as an independent business unit, selecting brands that best serve its customers locally and that complement the Claas offering. Claas and Horsch are working very well together,” says Claas UK retail director Richard Vaughan. ■ January 2019 33

Open days celebrate 50 years of trailer manufacturing Trailer number one. The very first Richard Western trailer built by Richard and his brother Gerald to heap sugar beet was displayed.

Suffolk-based trailer manufacturer Richard Western Ltd opened its factory doors to dealers and customers for the first time in November. David Williams attended. Richard Western started the business in 1968 as an alternative enterprise on the family’s farm at Framlingham, Suffolk producing steel sundry items such as feed troughs. High product quality meant Richard was asked to manufacture larger and more complex items and, in 1976, the first high capacity, strongly built farm trailer was produced. The range of products expanded to include muck spreaders from 1984 with the Coleman range purchased and, later that decade, the Greenburner flame cultivation system of chemical-free weed control was acquired. Now 500 trailers and trailed implements are produced and sold annually by the 75-strong team, and supplied to 19 countries including through a network of 25 UK dealers. Trailers account for three quarters of the company’s current business with most demand for silage and grain transport. Flat beds and livestock trailers are also produced.

Trailers to suit Suffolk Trailers are the company’s standard range, with capacity from 11–24t, and all except the largest model are fitted with twin axles. Versions are available to suit roots, grain and silage as well as flatbeds and Easy-Load livestock transporters. Wellington Trailers have the highest standard specification to meet the most demanding use. Also available in 14–24t capacity versions, the premium range features a steep 60-degree tip angle and an extratough 4mm monocoque body.

Spreaders Richard Western spreaders, popular across the UK and overseas, include Delilah and FBS rear-discharge, and SDS side-discharge models. Spinning disc application is available for rear delivery versions improving accuracy and increasing spread width for light materials such as poultry manure and compost. Delilah and FBS models can be equipped with a vertical beater spreader unit for yard manure, and a disc for lighter solids for increased versatility whatever the material being applied.

Chaser bins GRS grain chaser bins are a relatively new range for the company but a logical extension to the high capacity trailer line-up. With tandem or triple axles these have 25–30t capacities and are equipped with large flotation tyres to reduce ground compaction and big, variable-pitch augers for fast unloading. Drill fillers are also part of the range, but with smaller 8t, 10t or 12t capacities.

Family investment The Western family continues to invest in the plant to optimise product quality and one of the latest factory improvements is a new £1.2m painting area with spray booths capable of accommodating the largest trailers. Before two-pack undercoat is applied, every machine is shot blasted to ensure optimal paint adhesion and a durable finish. “We have never had a factory open day previously, but felt that

after 50 years we should give dealers and customers the opportunity to see our production facilities and meet our team,” explained director Angus Western. “Our business started with demand from farmers across East Anglia and we were especially pleased that so many early customers attended.” Angus said recent business strategy has been to focus on the core ranges, and especially trailers and spreaders. “We had approximately 20 product lines and were trying to be everything to everyone, but now there are 6 core products which gives us better opportunities to produce top quality equipment when it is needed without cutting corners. Shorter lead times are available, helping dealers

and end users.” Spreader production is an ongoing area of focus. “Our spreader production line has gradually evolved and improved and, to meet increasing demand, we have invested in a new production line dedicated to manufacturing rear discharge spreaders.” Succession is another area of investment for the business. “It’s always been a father and son managed business,” continued Angus, “but we are at a point where we need to broaden and increase our management structure which should allow us to identify and develop new areas for future growth, and increase production to satisfy the growing demand.” continued over...

Ground protection A display by BKT tyres explained how reducing tyre pressures helps protect soils from compaction, and why it is also important to have tyre and wheel equipment of the correct size. Two typical tyre options for agricultural trailers were shown, highlighting inflation pressures needed to carry a 5,150kg load. The smaller 560/60/22.5 (centre) required 73psi (5 bar) while the larger 650/55/26.5 carried the same load at the same speed at just 51psi, or 3.5 bar. “Increasingly users are aware of the need to reduce tyre pressures and maximise the ground contact area, and flotation tyres offer much improved performance over the old traditional super-singles,” said Richard Western sales director Mike Murray. “But going a step further with larger diameter tyres makes a big difference, enabling operation at even lower pressures and allowing users to make better use of available weather windows as they can travel when smaller tyres are unable.”

Machinery Safer trailer braking Safe trailer braking was an area of focus at the open days. Pictured with an early combined hydraulic and air-operated example, and a safer modern equivalent is pneumatic and electronic braking specialist JH Milnes Ltd representative, Steve Burles (left) with Angus Western. “In the past trailer manufacturers used what was available at that time to construct their braking systems,” explained Angus. “More effective alternatives are now available and manufacturers and dealers have a duty to explain the limitations of some of the previous systems still fitted to trailers, and suggest they are replaced by modern alternatives. Components for older braking systems fitted to all trailer brands tend to be cheaper, so it’s tempting to continue using them, but skimping on safety just doesn’t feel right to us and we advise customers to upgrade.” A particular issue which came to light recently involves systems where a single brake lever is operated by two separate actuators – one hydraulic and one pneumatic. This arrangement was the most common on agricultural trailers across the industry until a few years ago,” explained Angus. “It allows use behind an older tractor with hydraulic brakes or a modern tractor with pneumatic brakes, and when it was new there was no problem, provided it was correctly set up. But, because it depends on a single brake arm with two actuators connected separately – one above the other and each a different

...More on previous page

distance from the fulcrum, the stroke lengths required to operate the brakes are different which is what causes the problem. “As brake shoes wear, longer strokes are needed, and eventually one of the actuators runs out of effective travel. If that system is selected one day due to a tractor swap for example, the user could find that brakes which worked the previous day on another tractor have become ineffective.” Angus said a relatively inexpensive and simple solution is available. This requires the separate hydraulic and pneumatic actuators to be replaced by a single combined air and hydraulic actuator with only one connection to the brake arm. “We would urge farmers and contractors to check their trailers, whatever the brand, for this type of braking arrangement and, if it is fitted, replace it. The cost is approximately £400 to upgrade a typical twin-axle trailer,” he continued, “which is insignificant against the risk of an accident on- or off-road due to ineffective brakes.”

Farmers’ opinion

Excellent dealer service

Attending the open day and taking advantage of the trailer braking display were Oliver Pipe and James Turnball of WL & MD Pipe based at Tuddenham, near Ipswich. The Pipe’s farm is mainly arable and the trailer fleet includes a Richard Western 12t model which is more than 23 years old. “It’s made so well,” commented Oliver. “This is an ideal opportunity to see around the factory and it’s been useful learning more about trailer braking systems too. Brakes are a hot topic currently and we are all going to have to do more to make sure they are maintained effectively. We recently had ours professionally checked and the performance was within industry guidelines, but we are reassured knowing they were independently tested. “We usually only get to see the parts store when we visit Richard Western so seeing the production lines was useful. I think the on-going investment by the company is impressive and shows commitment to our industry.” Pictured (l-r) Oliver, James, Mike Murray and Steve Burles.

Members of the Carter family which farms at Stowupland in Suffolk enjoyed the event. The family farm is mainly arable cropping but also includes beef cattle, and Robert Carter explained that although there was sugar beet to lift at the time of the open day, autumn drilling and spraying was all up to date. “It’s a good opportunity to look around the factory,” he said. “We run Richard Western trailers purchased through our local main dealer Ernest Doe Power. They are good quality, well designed and made using top quality components and we also like the fact they are manufactured locally. We receive excellent service through the dealer too so it’s the obvious choice of trailer for us.” Pictured (l-r) Robert, Roger and John Carter, Angus Western and Ernest Doe Power sales representative Graham Goodwin.

The future is bright for Italian tractor manufacturer Italian family-owned tractor manufacturer Same celebrated the official opening of its new visitor centre at its Treviglio headquarters in Italy, along with modernisation of its production lines to meet growing demand for its machines. David Williams was there. Without Same’s investment, the future of Deutz-Fahr, Lamborghini and Hurlimann tractors would have been less certain, reminded Same Deutz-Fahr country manager for the UK Graham Barnwell. Same, which manufactures tractors up to 170hp, also owns the distinctive light green German, cream-coloured Italian and dark green-coloured Swiss brands. On the outside, Same’s headquarters has changed little since the 1970s and the factory still looks much as it did in the 1950s, but inside there has been a complete revamp in recent years and now the production line includes the latest robotic assembly techniques and driver-less guided vehicles to improve the efficiency and speed with which

heavy components are transported. The Same visitors centre has also received significant investment, including a large auditorium, meeting rooms and a superb museum displaying key models in the company’s history from the 1927 Cassani, which was one of the first diesel-powered tractors and which won a prestigious award from the Italian Ministry of Agriculture. For a family-owned company Same enjoys a great history of innovations including the 1950 4R 20 – with reversible driving position, and the DA25 – manufactured in 1952 and one of the first regular production conventional tractors with 4wd. In 1973 Same acquired Lamborghini Trattori and in 1979

The Same museum includes a superb selection of tractors and other products from the company’s history.

Hurlimann was added. In 1995 DeutzFahr was purchased leading to creation of the Same Deutz-Fahr (SDF) Group.

Brand demand In the UK most demand for Same tractors tends to be for smaller mixed and livestock farms, while Deutz-Fahr tractors with up to 440hp available from the 11-series, currently under development, cater for the needs of contractors and arable farms. Lamborghini tractors are identical to Same models, apart from their colour and badging and Hurlimann models are also very similar, but available through only one dealer in the UK. In 2015, Same launched its Frutteto fruit and vineyard tractor range with ActiveDrive transmission and adaptive hydro-pneumatic independent front suspension – offering what Same describes as unrivalled stability and comfort on-road and in the field. In early 2018, it added CVT transmission to the Frutteto options list and at the November factory opening an all-new model with four wheel steering was announced. Offering unrivalled manoeuvrability for orchard and vineyard tasks, the Frutteto ActiveSteer has a tight 28-degree steering angle, and also features selectable crab steering mode, allowing accurate tracking across slopes and improving accessibility for tasks such as mowing and spraying when working under

overhanging branches. What is most surprising, adds the company, is that four-wheel steering has been added without altering the standard wheelbase or wheel track.

Best vineyard tractor Mostafa Camlica and his family have 90ha of vineyards in the Kirklarell Province, Turkey, with plants at high density from 5,000–10,000/ha. “It’s easy to lose time manoeuvring with such narrow row spacing,” he said. “We run six Frutteto tractors already which are ideal with their tight steering angle. In the late 1990s we bought Same tractors for our arable crops and got on very well with them, so it was an easy decision selecting the brand again when we started the vineyard. We firmly believe they are the best vineyard tractors available and, with four-wheel steering making the latest models even more manoeuvrable, they will definitely be our choice in future. “When turns at the row ends are continued over...

difficult we lose valuable time, and for growing vines prompt application timing is critical to protect quality. Spraying every row rather than alternate rows means reduced risk of missing plants, and four-wheel steering action will allow this without risking plant damage with reduced stress on our drivers. Business shouldn’t be stressful; it should be enjoyable and we want that for our operators too.” Mostafa said reliability so far has been excellent and back-up from the company is always reassuring. “We are a family business and family always comes first. We prefer to deal with other family businesses when possible, and Same is an ideal match for us.”

At the official opening were members of the Carozza family, which owns Same, and the SDF Group. Pictured (l–r) are vice chairman Francesco Carozza; honorary chairman Vittorio Carozza; Mrs Luisella Cassani Carozza; vice chairman Aldo Carozza and chairman and CEO Ludovico Bussolati.

UK dealer view Bishops Castle, Wales-based SDF dealer G Bryan Jones has been in business 46 years, of which 36 have been as a Same dealer. “It’s an impressive tractor line-up, and despite its success it remains a strong family business retaining its family values,” explained managing director Gerald Jones. “At the official factory opening it was great to see that the younger generation is deeply involved too. Owner, Mrs Luisella Cassani Carozza is clearly familiar with the company’s UK dealer network and, when I chatted with her, she knew about our business and what we are achieving. That is encouraging,” he said. Gerald explained that Same tractors tend to appeal to livestock and mixed farms while the more powerful Deutz-Fahr models are selected by larger arable farms and contractors. Lamborghini branded tractors enjoy great customer brand loyalty with users enjoying their distinctive appearance. “Our trading area includes many hill farms and Same, for years, offered exclusive design features making it the ideal tractor for the situation.

A new era for Lamma begins in January 2019 when it opens its doors at the NEC Birmingham for the first time. The move, say organisers, will deliver a whole new experience for visitors, with all stands at the UK’s leading agricultural machinery event being fully under cover for the first time in its history. As ever, over the next 77 pages, Farmers Guide has produced the industry's largest Lamma preview, highlighting some of the best technology that will be displayed over the course of the two day event. Lamma ’19, which continues to offer free entry and car parking, is set to fill 11 halls at the NEC, hosting more than 700 exhibitors, reaffirming the show’s position as a key event for arable and livestock farmers, specialist producers, contractors, other rural businesses and their staff. The event will also provide an important platform for exhibitors to

combines, drills and cultivation kit, some of it on view for the first time, as well as a wide range of products and services and every type of tool imaginable. The trade halls will also be packed with new ideas and cutting-edge equipment, allowing visitors to examine the latest technology in detail and quiz experts, helping to enhance operations and profits on their own farms. The Lamma Innovation Awards will be relaunched at the NEC. This competition champions agricultural machinery, equipment and services innovations, with the medal winners announced in December. A new guided Lamma Innovation Trail will enable visitors to find out more about the gold and silver medal innovations that will be showcased on exhibitors’ stands.

To ensure visitors can track down exhibitors and areas of key interest and make the best use of their time, show organiser AgriBriefing has launched an interactive Lamma ’19 floorplan – Given the size of the event, this tool could be invaluable when it comes to planning a visit to the event, while the interactive function means visitors can easily navigate their way around on the day.

Lamma has moved to the NEC, Birmingham, for the 2019 event.

Looking ahead to the event, Fendt marketing manager, Richard Miller said that the move to the NEC is extremely positive. “This is what is needed in the agricultural industry,” he commented. “Manufacturers have an opportunity to launch new products and customers can easily see what’s available and can plan their current and future business investments.” According to Alpego UK managing director, Warren Rivers-Scott, the company first exhibited at Lamma in 2014 and it has become the single most important show in the farming calendar for the business. “The event always attracts decision makers and their operators from all over the country. Now the show is moving to the NEC, the event will give British Agriculture that important centerpiece that we all deserve and should support.” Lamma provides the agricultural industry with a central location for our industry to showcase the latest and

greatest agricultural machinery, added Krone marketing manager, James Duggleby. “Moving to the NEC will address many of the issues associated with an outdoor event. We believe that our visitor experience will be greatly enhanced, and we can show in greater detail the internal workings of our machines and the technology.” Vaderstad MD Michael Alsop said that the company was excited about the move to the NEC. “We prefer to be inside and the NEC will be good for us as well as the industry – it gives everyone a more level platform of how they exhibit and it will be easier to move round the show,” he suggested. Kuhn managing director Sian Pritchard commented: “We’re excited about the location – it will be a great environment for customers to see our machines. We also have a larger stand, which will mean we can show the complete range from grass machinery right through to soil cultivation, bedding, feeding and spraying equipment. All in all, for us it’s a good move.” Opico’s MD James Woolway concluded that with “one or two new grassland maintenance products in the offing, we are expecting to be quite a bit busier this year.” ■

Smart loader technologies take centre stage The 8620 T impresses with its wide range of configurations, says Schäffer.

Schäffer will showcase its latest generation of loaders; machines packed with the latest smart technologies developed for lower fuel consumption, reduced maintenance, increased comfort and eco-friendliness, says the company. Its stand will feature the 9640 T, 8620 T and 6680 T loaders – successful in many different applications. These new generation machines demonstrate the

company’s unrivalled build quality and wealth of bespoke options, as well as a raft of technologies focused on a more efficient conversion of fuel into performance, while increasing driving comfort – all developed to meet customers‘ needs, says Schäffer. The latest functions and features include HTF, or ‘High Traction Force’, which automatically regulates the thrust so the loader can supply the highest possible thrust even in a high

gear. HTF uses a new axial pistonbent axis motor that regulates speed automatically depending on the traction. This is particularly useful in an uphill position as the driver does not have to switch to first gear. HTF comes into its own when digging into aggregate material – if more thrust is required, the hydraulic motor adapts automatically, without the driver having to interfere manually, increasing driving comfort and speeding up work. SPT or ‘Schäffer Power Transmission’ is an electronically regulated drive adapted to the torque of the diesel engine, delivering multiple advantages as operating costs decrease and fuel consumption is reduced. SPT comes as standard on the 6680 T, 8620 T and the machines of the 96 series.

Dual Clutch Transmission The patented ‘SDCT’, or Schäffer Dual Clutch Transmission, is standard on machines in the 96 series. Two

driving modes are available which can be shifted under load. In driving mode 2, the loader runs at speeds of up to 40kph, with all the advantages of a hydrostatic drive. In driving mode 1, the loader develops enormous thrust forces thanks to a dual clutch transmission. The patented drive allows most work to be carried out without shifting, and the transmission operates with a high degree of efficiency, so that the fuel is converted into power very economically. As the name suggests, Eco Mode offers fuel savings and a more environmentally-friendly operation. If conditions permit, the motor speed will reduce automatically while maintaining the same speed. This allows a fuel saving of up to 10 per cent. As well as reduced operating costs, benefits of ECO Mode include lower noise levels. And when higher performance is required again, the electronics automatically switch to the full rotational speed – a smart solution for efficiency and comfort. ■ Hall 18, Stand 18.604.

LAMMA 2019 preview Demand for bespoke root crop harvesters Assistant farm manager, Graham Knottenbelt.

British machinery manufacturer Standen Engineering is reporting growth in bespoke harvester sales, particularly in Scotland, as growers increasingly look to tailor their machinery to suit their requirements. Graham Knottenbelt is assistant farm manager at arable business Luffness Mains, in Aberlady, East Lothian, and he operates the farm’s Standen T2 harvester – a bespoke build to harvest potatoes and carrots. “The T2 is lightweight, but strong and very easy to pull with good weight distribution,” commented Mr Knottenbelt. “The

touch screen is very user friendly and having the ability to fine tune hydraulic flow rates to the ram services is superb. We lifted 100–120ha of potatoes and by the end of the season we will have lifted 40ha of carrots, with little or no damage. “The RoTo axle is very good for opening up with no damage to crops and makes road transport easy. Individual control of the clod roller is a superb idea which allowed some separation when lifting the carrots. It’s brilliant, I love it,” he stated. The T2 has been engineered to create minimal damage to the crop, while maximising efficiencies, and is available with separator options to cover many crops including; potatoes, onions, carrots, parsnips, red beet and celeriac, says Standen. It is available with a windrow attachment option which, when used in conjunction with the RoTo axle, eliminates the need for a trailer when opening up fields, resulting in less crop damage from trailers running on rows. ■ Hall 8, Stand 8.824.

New rings to be rolled out Bullock Tillage will be displaying several new ranges of equipment including grassland harrows, gravity seeders and a new range of heavyduty Cambridge rolls. Good consolidation for seed-tosoil contact is crucial for effective crop establishment and also aids moisture retention and reduces slug activity, says the company. With this in mind a new range of Cambridge Rolls will be launched at Lamma and will come in working widths of 4.6; 5.3; 6.2; 7.4; 9.0 and 12.0m with 530mm Cambridge and breaker rings. Each roll section has independent flotation allowing optimum consolidation across the full working width even in undulating ground conditions. The 9 and 12m working widths come complete with twin axles for safe and secure road transport. The 12m working width is ideal for 24m tramlines, reducing

the number of tractor passes across the field. LED lighting comes as standard.

LAMMA 2019 preview The Arian 2 sprayer from Team.

A year of success for mounted sprayer British sprayer company Team Sprayers will be at Lamma ‘19 with its biggest mounted sprayer; the Arian 2, which launched in 2017. The company says that it has been encouraged by its popularity with farmers. The Arian 2 features a new rotationally-moulded plastic tank replacing the fibreglass version on the previous model, with sizes up

to 1,800 litres, and a 2-stage control valve operation system designed to keep wastage to a minimum while optimising the sprayer functions. Boom stability is a key feature which Team Sprayers says it prides itself on, and the latest Arian is no exception; it is available with a range of boom widths up to 24m, all built in steel tubular sections with a three dimensional structure

designed to offer years of strength and durability. Howard Walshaw, a farmer from Meltonby who invested in an Arian 2 in 2018 said: “We hadn’t run a Team sprayer before but it was recommended as the parts and service back up was good, which is important to us. The 1,800-litre tank means that we can spray at higher water volumes, which is ideal.

“The rear-folding boom has made a massive difference, it’s so quick and easy to hitch on and off the tractor. It’s a very well built sprayer and the price was reasonable. We’ve been very pleased with it – it’s doing a good job for us.” The new Arian Sprayer comes in 1,200-, 1,600- and 1,800-litre tank sizes. ■ Hall 9, Stand 9.300.

Re-inventing the wheel Left to right: Agricast’s 24in High Strength Wheel, DDR-610 and DDR-710.

Agricast, a leading supplier of replacement wearing parts, will be showcasing its High Strength Wheel and Double Drive Wheel. The High Strength Wheel has a 24in diameter and features 8 spokes rather than the traditional 4, making it Agricast’s most robust wheel. As well as being stronger than alternatives, it is significantly cheaper than comparable wheels and will fit most leading machines, including Cousins; Dal-Bo; He-Va; Twose and Simba/

Great Plains, says the company. “We’ve developed this new 8-spoke wheel to offer farmers, contractors and manufacturers a stronger ring without having to pay the premium for Ductile steel,” explains Agricast general manager William Robinson. “We’ve spent a lot of time designing this new ring to ensure that it’s as strong as it can be. We’ve undertaken load analysis and extensive testing to ensure it is robust and longlasting. Unlike other rings on the

market, the key advantage of the Agricast High Strength Wheel is that the wearing edge of the ring still contains plenty of metal compared with its rivals,” he says. Introduced earlier in the year following the expiry of the patent on the Simba Double Disc Ring, Agricast’s DDR wheel offers greater durability and enhanced poor weather performance at a much cheaper cost than the original DD design. According to the company, DDR achieves better traction by having small cutaways which were not present on the original design. These cutaways, or scallops, also improve the wheel’s ability to shatter or fissure hard, dry soil effectively. Agricast’s DDR is a registered design and available in two sizes – 610 and 710mm diameter. As well as being around 30 per cent cheaper than the original, the Double Drive Ring offers greater

durability, featuring 6mm rather than 5mm steel. “With 20 per cent more metal in these rings to start with, we are offering a longer lasting product that will not wear through as quickly on the shoulders,” adds Mr Robinson. The Agricast DDR is manufactured from heat-treated boron steel, which because they work more passively than a disc blade, will offer greater longevity when compared to cast ring wheels. Fully compatible with all existing parts and axles, the DDR is a closed wheel, preventing stones from jamming, which can happen with cast rings. “Both new products were on our stand at the Midlands Machinery Show and were very well received by visitors from across the region. We’re looking forward to showing them off to a wider audience at the NEC and hope they receive the same positive and enthusiastic response from people looking for well made, long-lasting and excellent value for money replacement parts,” concludes Mr Robinson. ■ Hall 20, Stand 20.422

Buckets and bale handlers Albutt is launching its range of shear buckets at the event. The SKMB220HX is a time saving attachment designed for livestock farmers enabling the cutting of silage and handing of feed materials, eliminating the need to swap between bucket and shear grab. Specification includes the use of high tensile steel in key stress areas to provide high strength and long-term reliability. The shear bucket is designed for use with telescopic handlers with a lift capacity of 3–4t. Fast and efficient handing of large straw bales is now made simple using the new bale grab from the company. The F650HX will handle four mini Hesston four-string bales. Bales are secured by hydraulically controlled wings that feature high tensile steel Hardox tines which penetrate bales, holding them securely. According to Albutt, two hydraulic rams synchronise wing movement to engage bales simultaneously. This new attachment is for use with telescopic handlers with lift capacities of 4t. The Albutt F470 Bale Grab is a

contractor quality, heavy-duty bale handler aimed at high intensity users, continues the company. The side squeeze operation provides a simple and effective tool for moving both square and round silage bales. Lateral movement of the clamp can be adjusted to allow for the largest range while keeping the frame width at a minimum. A heavy-duty spill frame means a second square bale can be stacked. If the machine has two hydraulic services to the attachment, both width adjustment and the clamp movement operations can be controlled independently from the cab, says Albutt, adding that if the machine only has one hydraulic service, two 3-way valves on the F470 can be manually operated to switch between width adjustment and clamp movement. The Albutt Fork Positioner attachment allows users to quickly and accurately move pallet forks from the comfort of the cab, concludes the company. By operating a hydraulic service, the forks can move to suit

various pallet sizes and loads – ideal for busy yards and construction sites where getting out of the cab can create a health and safety issue. A 4,100kg capacity makes the attachment suitable for a variety of machines and applications. ■ Hall 6, Stand 6.930.

Irrigation with total control Wroot Water has spent many years working in specialist irrigation and is one of the UK’s pioneers in field-scale drip and sprinkler systems – making irrigation more efficient and userfriendly for customers to get the best returns. For the 2019 season, the company is launching the Canopy Irrigation Control System, which Wroot Water says is like no other control system available in the UK. It uses new technology in the form of LoRa (long range wireless radio frequency) technology, together with Bluetooth, wi-fi and GSM. This allows operators

to monitor zone valves, water meters, soil moisture and air temperature with more sensors being added as the system evolves. Canopy Irrigation Control can be programmed and monitored via smart phone, tablet or desktop computer from the office. This gives more precise monitoring of irrigation, particularly with water flow, says Wroot Water. The system sends a text email warning if the flow is insufficient or exceeds the set amount. It can be retro-fitted to all existing Wroot Water irrigation systems, adds the firm. Also new for 2019 is an updated

version of the Wroot Tapemaster. After 25 years of retrieving tape from thousands of acres, the company is changing the way it is retrieved. This development has been driven by two things: firstly the use of drip tape in processing potatoes (one tape every 1.8/2.0m) – allowing multiple tapes to be retrieved in one pass; secondly, with the loss of chemical desiccant and a move to flailing the crop before harvest, multiple rows of tape are able to be retrieved from prepacked crops. “Initially we designed the machine to work in conjunction with a flail

topper on the front and the tape retriever on the rear, retrieving two rows at a time,” says Wroot Water MD Anthony Hopkins. “Using our revised design we can now retrieve six rows in one pass. To enable this we have been experimenting with a reciprocating arm with rollers for the past two seasons so that the tape is wound onto the tape drum evenly, to effectively allow the drum to hold more tape. This new design is available to retro-fit to any Wroot Water Tapemaster,” he adds. ■ Hall 20, Stand 20.106.

Be precise with smart irrigation Briggs Irrigation will be introducing the new Raindancer remote monitoring and control system to its range of irrigation management systems. The Raindancer system uses a solar powered GPS unit which can be mounted on the irrigation boom or raingun trolley. The unit records position data and has a sensor to monitor real time pressure. This information is transmitted to a smartphone app and desktop software. Each irrigation run can therefore be monitored on the map in ‘real time’ and recorded for future reference, making it easy to see how much water was applied and on which days, says the company. Benefits include: • Immediate notification of problems with the equipment • Notification approaching critical areas, such as roads or railways near the edge of the field • End of run prediction and notification • Automatic logging of water applied, identity of machine, water source as well as colour coded field mapping • Irrigation data can be output in excel format

Briggs’ Raindancer remote monitoring and control system transmits data to a smartphone app.

Briggs Irrigation director, Adrian Colwill said: “We have been able to offer reliable SMS control and alert systems for several years and we can now supply this latest software and smartphone app to provide full control of irrigation equipment via phone, tablet and PC, with the added benefit of accurate GPS data. “Accurate mapping makes it much easier to schedule relocation of equipment and to apply the optimum amount of water to different parts of a field. Yield results can also be compared with water applications and timing, enabling ‘precision irrigation’ to be applied extensively.” The company will also be exhibiting a selection of its booms, hosereels and pumps at the event. ■ Hall 6, Stand 6.714.

Rakes, sprayers, drills and cultivators Kuhn Farm Machinery will be exhibiting a wide range of machinery from its sprayer, baler, baler-wrapper and feed wagon ranges, plus a selection of fertiliser spreaders, cultivation equipment and seed drills. Aimed at large-scale grassland operations, the Merge Maxx 950 rake uses two adjustable, variable width and bi-directional merger belts to give a maximum grass pick-up width of 9.5m. The bi-directional design of the Merge Maxx 950’s twin belts provides multiple windrow delivery options: forage can be delivered into a single central windrow, a single lateral windrow (left or right side), two lateral windrows (one either side) or a central and left or right lateral windrow. Pick-up and windrow width can be adjusted to suit the quantity and type of forage material being harvested, enabling the number of passes and associated costs to be reduced. For lateral windrows, the windrow width can be varied between 1.0– 1.5m. For central windrows, the windrow can be up to 2.20m in width. Auto-regulating rollers at the front and side of the pick-up unit self-adjust their position according to crop thickness. These in turn pass a consistent and constant supply of forage to the merger belts, enabling the Merge Maxx to produce a uniform, airy and faster-drying windrow which makes it easier for the subsequent baler or chopper to collect large volumes of grass: for forage harvesters this can equate to a 2–3kph increase in forward operating speed. The Merge Maxx 950 folds to

Precision seed drill Available in 6–12 row versions and capable of drilling crops with row spacings from 37.5–80.0cm, the new Maxima 3 range comprises 12 models in a choice of configurations including telescopic, trailed, foldable and telescopic with adjustable spacing. The new Maxima 3 drills use an improved seed selection and ejection system which enables accurate seed placement at working speeds of up to 10kph. Accuracy is also enhanced by a new seeding unit parallelogram, which is reinforced in key areas including at critical hinges and linkages, for added stability, robustness and longevity. A new coulter pressure system, capable of producing up to 180kg of downward force, also enhances seeding accuracy by ensuring consistent depth control. The Maxima 3 range also boasts an electrically driven seed metering system which allows application rates to be adjusted manually on the move or in accordance with a pre-prescribed seeding map. The electrically operated system also enables GPS or manually controlled row shut-off. Each seeding unit’s settings (depth, ground pressure, furrow closing, etc.) can be adjusted easily

and quickly by hand and without the need for any specialist tools. This not only makes setting the machine up more efficient, but also makes maintenance tasks less time consuming. A wide choice of optional equipment, including angleadjustable V-Max rear closing wheels which provide a furrow closing pressure of up to 45kg, fertiliser hoppers, front, rear and intermediate press wheels, clod cleaners and trash wipers is also available.

Sprayer technology The company has recently added four new models to its range of Oceanis trailed crop sprayers: the Oceanis 5002, 5602, 6902 and 7702 machines have tank capacities of 5,000, 5,600, 6,900 and 7,700 litres respectively and are available with compact, all-aluminium booms in widths of 24–48m. The Oceanis 7702 will be on display at Lamma. The new sprayers are fully Isobus

compatible, enabling them to be controlled from a single in-cab terminal such as Kuhn’s CCI 1200 console. A separate Isoclick control box which places the key sprayer controls (section control, boom height and angle) within fingertip reach can also be used. The new sprayers are also Canbus compatible and can be operated via the company’s Visioreb or Reb3 controllers. Each new model is available with the Multispray system which uses electric nozzle holders to enable incab nozzle selection, automatic nozzle selection to suit the forward working speed and to maximise the accuracy of variable rate applications, plus individual nozzle control to reduce overlapping. In terms of cultivation equipment, the Optimer XL range of stubble cultivators consists of mounted and trailed machines in working widths of 3–5m – and the 5m trailed Optimer XL 5000 will be on display at the event. ■ Hall 12, Stand 12.440.

New addition to off-road line-up BRP (Bombardier Recreational Products) says that it will be highlighting power, performance, comfort, capability, versatility and innovation at the event with the UK debut of the Can-Am Outlander 6x6 450 T, the latest addition to Can-Am off-road’s 2019 utility vehicle portfolio. The 2019 Can-Am Outlander 6x6 450 T has been designed and developed to enable users to be more efficient when doing the toughest jobs on the farm, and has the ability to handle the constantly changing terrains out in the field with ease. The new Can-Am Outlander 6x6 450 T is powered by the reliable 38hp single-cylinder, liquid-cooled Rotax 450 engine and comes with industry-leading towing capacity (750kg), front and rear racks with cargo extenders, and LinQ accessory attachment points, says BRP. Its continuously variable transmission (CVT) is calibrated to ensure that it always delivers the optimal torque output, no matter where it is or what it is being used

for. The engine braking automatically reduces the speed of the ATV when going downhill and the extra low L-gear makes it easier for the user to manoeuvre the ATV when pulling a trailer or when it is driving in deep mud. In addition, the Visco-Lok front differential system requires no buttons to push or levers to be held in order to engage it and once the 6x6 option is selected, the system intelligently transfers power from the slipping front wheel to the opposing wheel with traction. The Can-Am Outlander 6x6 450 T will be the centre piece of Can-Am’s workhorse agricultural all terrain (ATV) and side-by-side vehicles (SSV) on display. Other models will include the Can-Am Outlander 450, 570 PRO and 570 DPS ABS, and a selection of vehicles from

the Can-Am Traxter range. BRP commercial manager UK and Ireland, James Dalke, says; “Lamma is a key event for us as it attracts a wide-ranging group of utility users

who we can introduce the breadth of the off-road line-up to, and showcase how these vehicles can assist them in their day-to-day work.” ■ Hall 6, Stand 6.820.

large lifting capacity of 35t and lifting height (without extensions) of 627mm. Visitors to the stand can take part in a daily competition to win one of three off-road tyre repair kits. The SIPK3 String Insert Puncture Repair kit contains 10 items for performing off-road puncture repairs, including a heavy-duty T bone handle, a spare open eye needle and a valve core remover. Hall 20, Stand 20.110. Products available to buy at the show will include AME’s Combi hydraulic bead breaker kit and the GT3532 agricultural air jack from Gaither.

AP Air is Europe’s market leader in air conditioning parts and consumables for agricultural machinery, says the company. With tractors coming off the assembly lines fitted with the new refrigerant R1234yf, dealerships will need to be ready to service them, and so the business will be bringing Agricold YF – a fully automatic service station for R1234yf air conditioning systems – to the Lamma event. It is easy to use, continues AP Air and, when purchased, all the necessary training will be given in order to use the machine, as well as any on-going support that is required.   If you mainly service older vehicles, AP Air says that its has a range of tools and machinery available, as well as guidance on tools and equipment that may be needed if a dealership is considering becoming an air conditioning specialist. Starter kits are offered to assist in this profitable service that dealers can provide to customers, adds the company.

LAMMA 2019 preview Diquat ban ignites topper interest The banning of diquat is behind a surge of interest in Scotts Precision Manufacturing’s haulm toppers, which the company expects to continue at Lamma. The Lincolnshire-based vegetable handling equipment manufacturer believes that mechanical haulm destruction will become a major draw in 2019, once diquat is removed from use, and is expecting a keen interest in its three-bed topper which will be alongside Scotts’ latest Evolution separator on the stand. “Farmers are not going to have many options once diquat is taken away from them,” says the company’s managing director, Derek Scott. “Growers are only going to have one viable option if they want to desiccate their crop before harvest effectively and that will be to use a topper. We’ve seen a massive increase in enquiries over the past month and expect this to continue well into the New Year as people consider their options.” As well as the three-bed topper, Scotts will also have details of its popular Trinity 22B single bed haulm topper available, which received a significant upgrade in 2018.  In response to the increasing

The Trinity 22B single bed haulm topper received a significant upgrade in 2018, as has Scotts' Evolution separator.

power output of harvesting tractors, Scotts boosted the Trinity’s horsepower capacity by 50 per cent, taking its performance significantly beyond the competition, says the firm. “Where other manufacturers have struggled to radically improve their versions of the humble potato topper, we believe we have set a new standard in how good a haulm topper can be, ” continues Mr Scott. “The current Trinity 22B usually removes the need for an expensive and high-maintenance cross conveyor by using shear plates to produce an effect similar to a straw chopper, with cleverly designed deflectors guiding the vast majority of the “mulch” into the tractor wheelings. “The haulm is so finely chopped that the potato harvester can sieve the debris without using haulm rollers. As the Trinity 22B also offers a 2.1m working width, tractors don’t trample the haulm either. The Trinity 22B features quickchange flails for reduced downtime, a broad range of cutting heights, a replaceable steel inner liner hood protector and the largest variation of

flail lengths of any topper currently available. The flat and steeply curved flail design offers by far the best suction on the market, says the company.

Evolution Joining the Trinity 22B on Scotts’ stand will be the company’s recently upgraded Evolution separator. The latest version features programmable memory roller settings, self-cleaning and the option of having self-cleaning and gentle salad rollers instead of the machine’s normal rollers. By having the ability to store and then remotely adjust the spacing of the spiral and clod rollers to saved positions will enable users to quickly and easily set up the Evolution separator to suit either the conditions or the crop being handled. 

Making changes to the Evolution’s configuration was possible before the upgrade but required manual adjustments. Now, modifications can be made via push buttons or an optional HMI system, which is simpler and quicker than before. The enhancements will also deskill the process and reduce the machine’s downtime, adds Scotts. A second improvement sees the introduction of self-cleaning. When activated, the Evolution’s spiral rollers spin at high speed to throw off any attached dirt. Finally, Scotts has also developed rollers specifically for salad crops. The new salad rollers feature softer and wider spaced ribs which handle the produce in a more gentle manner, says the company. ■ Hall 8, Stand 8.940.

LAMMA 2019 preview Root crop harvesting and planting technology The RCA3060 self-propelled, two-row potato harvester.

Belgian company Dewulf will have the RCA3060 self-propelled, two-row potato harvester and the Structural 30 planter at the show this year, says importer Niagri Engineering. The RCA3060 features a special ‘C-elevator’ that offers increased

crop handling care by minimising directional changes in the crop flow. Furthermore, it comes with axial rollers and an Easy-Clean unit. The RCA3060 model has already proven itself for several seasons on Scottish farms and the machine shown

at Lamma will be on demonstration in England during the 2019 season. The Structural 30 is a trailed or mounted three-row belt planter. It is equipped with numerous innovative features including ‘wave-shaped’ planting belts which prevent seed potatoes from rolling to one side on sloping terrain. Thanks to Hill Master and Inclino Master technology, planting on uneven or sloping terrain is no longer a concern as the planting unit and the bunker are always kept level. For over 40 years, the Structural

range has been the fastest, most efficient range of belt planters on the market, says Niagri. Alongside the three-row Structural 30, the two-row Miedema Structural 2000 (MS) and four-row Miedema Structural 4000 complete the belt planter range. ■ Hall 8, Stand 8.814.

Precision ag and on-board weighing solutions Topcon Agriculture’s solutions address the challenges of modern farming from planning and field preparation to managing crop health and harvest. The modular, design of its platform is designed to grow as needs change, allowing the farmer to maximise efficiencies while lowering input costs, says the company. The savings from precision


farming are well documented; 7–10 per cent on crop inputs; another 10 per cent with precision guidance and control, and even more with water management, on-board weighing, tracking solutions and data management. Topcon Agriculture will be at Lamma with two key distributors: LH Agro (official UK distributor of the Topcon Agriculture precision

farming product range – excluding the on-board weighing line); and RDS MME (the largest UK distributor of the RDS-branded retrofit product line, specialising mainly in on-board weighing systems in agricultural applications). Hall 11, Stands 11.120 and 11.124. The Topcon X25 console. January 2019

The belt system repair solution for tractors. As the number of belt driven engine and safety critical components in modern tractors increases, so does the load on the Front End Auxiliary Drive (or FEAD) belt system, which can lead to premature wear and possible belt failure. Replacing just the belt may not be the answer, so INA has developed a FEAD KIT that contains all of the components you need to carry out a complete, professional and reliable repair that will keep your tractor running smoother for longer.

A ‘full-line’ provider to UK agriculture Lamma has been chosen to provide the new Fendt Ideal combine with its first appearance at a UK agricultural show, alongside another debutant – the Fendt Rotana Combi baler/ wrapper, says the company. In addition, a Fendt Squadra ultra-high density baler will be present for inspection and is expected to attract interest from the biomass sector in particular. Showgoers will also find a comprehensive selection from the Fendt Vario wheeled tractor line-up, from the popular, multi-role 300 Series, (the Fendt 313 received a ‘Tractor of the Year’ award at the recent EIMA Show in Italy) right up to the range-topping 1000 Series. The MT900 tracked machine will also be there. And, at the forefront of crop-spraying technology, a Fendt Rogator will add its considerable presence to the occasion. Fendt’s manager for national sales in the UK and Ireland, Martin Hamer says he’s delighted that the company’s substantial presence will be part of the show’s first staging at the NEC. “Being the largest agricultural machinery show in

LAMMA 2019 preview Improvements to dryer series Perry of Oakley says it is the UK’s most experienced manufacturer of materials handling and drying equipment. Its latest grain dryers from the Savannah series, have significant improvements compared with the popular ‘M’ series. An inverter controls the operation of the fans so there is the potential to save power and crop lift off by running the fans at reduced speed. Perry’s unique crop set up feature automatically selects the initial fan speed best suited to the crop. Overall dryer width has been reduced by 500mm which will help when fitting a dryer into existing buildings. The Savannah Series dryers still have Perry’s own advanced PLC panel, which is designed and programmed in-house, and auto control, which uses both the exhaust air temperature and hot grain temperature to give advanced control of the dryer with feedback, to maintain a consistent moisture content of the discharged grain. To ensure longevity the dryers are built with a 2mm thick grain column, and 3mm thick top ducts to help prevent deformation and wear.


Perry of Oakley believes it has delivered significant improvements in its grain dryers with the Savanah series.

To promote consistent movement of the grain down the grain column, even in very wet conditions, all Savannah series dryers are fitted with the company’s pneumatically controlled shutter discharge., says Perry. The company also manufactures a full range of 10–1,000tph handling equipment including chain & flight conveyors, belt & bucket elevators, augers & screw conveyors, aspirator pre-cleaners and belt conveyors. ■ Hall 8, Stand 8.716.

Chemical Storage 4 Farmers by


The Shelton CT150 Agri Chain trencher with Trimble laser.

Increasing demand for in-house drainage Lincolnshire drainage expert Shelton has reported an increase in demand of over 50 per cent for its hire service, as farmers invest in drainage. The firm also offers a partnership service, where farmers can hire a trencher, plus all associated machinery and a skilled operator. Shelton director Richard Clark said: “Well drained land can typically benefit from a yield improvement of 25–35 per cent and farmers know this. We’ve seen steady growth since we launched, but last year’s wet winter really highlighted any underlying drainage issues. This scheme gives farmers the opportunity to get their drainage done when it suits them and benefit from potential cost savings through using in-house labour.” James Arguile who farms

at Gringley-on-the-Hill, Nottinghamshire used the partnership scheme in November to drain 4ha of land which suffered from black-grass. “I had assumed we would hire a drainage contractor, but I met Shelton at the Midlands Machinery Show and was impressed with its trencher, and I liked the fact that we could carry out the work ourselves,” he said. “We hired a John Deere tractor, CT150 trencher, gravel cart, backfilling blade and laser from the company, and Richard spent the first day training us on how to use the equipment – setting falls and gradients etc – which was invaluable. It was easy to use and all ran very smoothly. I’m very happy with the work. It has made a decent field into a very good one!” ■ Hall 6, Stand 6.940.

Soil health and its importance to the future of UK farming will be a central theme of ProCam’s Lamma exhibit, with innovative displays being used to demonstrate root as well as foliar growth characteristics of a wide range of crop types. The company will invite farmers to challenge conventional approaches to arable cropping and investigate the advantages of integrating alternatives such as cover crops, green manures and livestock into future rotations. For the first time at Lamma, ProCam will bring forward the expertise of forage crop specialists Field Options, following its acquisition of the business in 2017, to highlight the opportunities to bring arable and forage crops together to enhance crop rotations. “We want farmers to embrace change that will unleash the full potential of their land,” says Field Options director Francis Dunne. “In many cases this will mean a move away from conventional rotations and the introduction of different crop types that will help to build soil fertility, improve soil structure and restore beneficial soil biology. “We’ll be highlighting a range of different approaches, covering

innovations such as co-cropping, for example, and introducing new mixtures suitable as short-term green manures or overwinter cover crops.” ■ Hall 9, Stand 9.320.

The evolution of drain-jetters

With 25 years of drain-jetter experience MitchellRowlands believes it is well placed to advise visitors to its stand at Lamma.

Mitchell-Rowlands says it has seen many developments from the basic S-S Professional drain-jetter first imported in 1992, to today’s hi-tech versions based on the robust 3-point linkage frame holding a narrow drum with 600m hose capacity. Twin hydraulic anti-slip motors are offered as standard on the drive system as are 4 special 200mm wheels which the manufacturer says give virtually no slip when hitting blockages. The guide arm to the ditch is controlled hydraulically up and down. The hydraulic folding and unfolding arm becomes telescopic using the same hydraulic cylinder to reach the outfall easily. The hi-tech options available

today such as having all hydraulic functions and water on and off through remote wireless control in the palm of your hand, make it simple when setting up to the drain out fall, says Mitchell-Rowlands. Once the nozzle hits an obstruction the reel is automatically rewound to a preset distance and then tries again, this continues until it has got through the obstruction. Once the electronic counter has reached the pre-set length of drain it rewinds automatically, and this is when the business of cleaning the drain pipe occurs. A cone shape of water moving in reverse cleans the walls of the pipe and pulls the dirt out. ■ Hall 9, Stand 9.600.

Stockman tractors for field and yard work models from Landini manufacturer Argo Tractors to take up Deutz power, with the 3.6-litre 4-cylinder engine having only a maintenance-free diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC) to meet latest emissions rules. Power outputs peak at 99, 107 and 113hp, with generous torque helping the tractors put in a lively performance, says the company. The 113hp Landini 5-120 is the most powerful of 3 models in the new 5 Series.

A new range of ‘stockman’ tractors available with a comprehensive choice of transmission packages will make its UK debut at Lamma. The Landini 5 Series comprises 3 models with power outputs from 99–113hp, a choice of synchro or power shuttle transmissions with creep and economy PTO options, and mechanical or electronic operation of the 4,750kg rear linkage. A generous standard specification includes an air suspension driver’s seat, cab air conditioning and a radio/media player with Bluetooth for hands-free phone use. Front and rear windscreen

wash/wipe and a push-back hydraulic pick-up hitch are also included in the package. “These new agile tractors slot into the Landini range between the 69–107hp 4 Series and the newlyintroduced 110–126hp 6-H Series,” explains Argo Tractors sales director, Ben Agar. “As such, they represent a typically versatile ‘stockman’ tractor that buyers can equip to suit their particular needs for yard and field work,” he adds. Standing on a 2,355mm wheelbase and weighing in at 3,800kg, the Landini 5 Series tractors are the latest

Transmission options Having a variety of transmission options, including a choice of mechanical shuttle with 12in dual clutch and power shuttle with wet clutch technology, makes it possible to equip the tractor ideally for different tasks, whether working predominantly on yard work with a loader or mainly engaged with field work, or a mixture of the two. As standard, the 5 Series tractors come with a 40kph Power Four synchro shuttle transmission providing 12 speeds in both directions. A creeper can be added for extra speeds or 2-speed powershift with the T-Tronic version giving 24x24 speeds, which is ideal for loader work. A creep

version with 32x32 speeds is also available. With the power shuttle, the left hand fingertip control provides effort-free direction changes and a modulated clutch action that can be adjusted to deliver smooth take up of drive whatever the operating situation. It also brings smooth electro-hydraulic operation of the PTO wet disc clutch. Finally, Eco 40kph may be chosen on powershift versions, enabling the tractor to cruise at lower engine speed for greater fuel economy. There is also a good choice of PTO options – 540/1,000rpm is standard, with 540/540E a no-cost option for added economy with light-duty implements, and a 4-speed alternative caters for more power-demanding implements. In the cab, which has been very well received on Landini 4 Series tractors, the operator is treated to air conditioning as standard, along with a multi-media entertainment system, an air suspension seat and a roof window for good visibility to a raised Landini loader. ■ Hall 8, Stand 8.604.

Improved mixing with disc addition  The Vaderstad CrossCutter is ideal for mixing trash and soil at shallow depths. The Vaderstad CrossCutter disc is effective in the fight against black-grass.

Mixing trash and soil at shallow depths on stubbles, cover crops and ploughed land is the promise behind Vaderstad’s Carrier with CrossCutter Disc. The machine, which will be on display at Lamma, can achieve speeds of up to 20kph with a low horsepower requirement. It has a working width of 3.00-12.25m and the new disc, which is produced in high-quality V-55 Swedish steel, has a diameter of 450mm. Each disc

is individually mounted to a rubber suspended disc arm for enhanced ground contouring across the full working width. The CrossCutter Disc is ideal for incorporating cover crops while minimising the risk of problems in the following crop. It has also shown great results tackling grass weeds on cereal stubbles while on ploughed land it is able to create a seedbed. Another new offering is the

BreakMix point which Vaderstad says combines the advantages of breaking compactions with intensive mixing, adding versatility and agronomical benefits to the farm. The BreakMix effectively cracks deep soil compaction down to 30cm, which allows free passage of water up and down the soil profile, and also provides intensive mixing of residues in the topsoil. Vaderstad claims that its new point gives extra versatility at a lower cost. Vaderstad’s universal light tined cultivator Ferox will also be at the show. It is available with a working width of 5, 6, 7 or 9m and has a levelling CrossBoard to help create

a seedbed in a range of farming conditions. The Ferox has a rigid vibrating tine that can maintain a constant working depth and shatter cobbly soils. Wide tine spacing assists with handling crop residues and weeds, and in the right conditions it can help to dry up the soil before drilling. The CrossBoard provides an aggressive cultivation, ensuring that clods are crushed and the soil is levelled. The working intensity is controlled hydraulically from the cab. Ferox has a transport width from 3.15–4.05m depending on model size. Prices start at £20,030. Vaderstad’s Tempo L 18 precision drill for planting crops such as oilseed rape and sugar beet will be on show. It has 18 row units and is available with 500 or 508mm row spacing. Tempo L 18 can be adjusted down from 18-12 row units and when in the 12-row configuration the spacing can be set from 700-800mm making it ideal for crops such as maize and sunflower. ■ Hall 20, Stand 20.320.

Clever planting equipment With fresh challenges presented by an uncertain Brexit, working smarter will probably be the key to gaining a competitive advantage. That’s why Grimme is using Lamma to showcase some exciting advances in its ‘smart’ technology, which includes Clever Planting and the myGRIMME portal, explains the manufacturer. Clever Planting enables growers to maximise potato yields without increasing acreage. A bold claim, but one backed by solid evidence of lower inputs, reduced harvesting losses and improved crop quality, says Grimme. This is thanks to an ISystems package that also includes Section Control, Visual Protect and touch screen CCI units. Using GPS data, the density and volume of seed passing through the planter elements is automatically controlled with programmed shutoff in the spraying tracks. The GB430 planter benefits from the full range of iSystem applications, although some are also available on GB 215/330 models. myGRIMME is a new on-line

platform exclusive to the company’s customers that can be accessed on any smartphone, laptop or tablet. It enables owners to quickly and easily create a unique folder for their Grimme machines. They can input the serial number and the system displays a detailed specification for that machine. Technical information can be accessed in a similar way with machines that are equipped with a GPS receiving device. The location of the machine can be pinpointed on Google Maps. Using Digital Antitheft (Geofencing) owners can also define any specific areas beyond which a machine should not move over a given time. If it crosses that boundary, the application generates an electronic message to make the owner aware of unexpected movement. Given a New Year and a new high-profile venue for Lamma 2019, visitors will no doubt be expecting to see some smart new machinery, continues the firm. Therefore, it is

using the show to launch the new ProAir seed drill by Stanhay. This is a new co-operative venture, says Grimme, that brings unique seeding technology for vegetables and root crops to the company’s retail

customers. Given the impending ban on diquat, Grimme will also be presenting a proven alternative that further extends its range of innovative harvest machinery. ■ Hall 8–9, Stand 8–9.240.

Crop cooling fans and systems Alongside a successful harvest season supplying high-performance grain pedestal fans and providing on-site farm services, the team at Gibbons Agricultural has been busy preparing for its second appearance at the Lamma show in January. Visitors to the stand will get to see all the latest products including 0.13–2.2kW aluminium pedestal fans and hotspot Airspear fans. Director Matthew Gibbons says: “Lamma offers a perfect platform for us to showcase our range of crop cooling fans and systems. We’re looking forward to meeting farmers from around the UK to see how we can help them maintain crop quality and save money.” This year has also seen Gibbons launch its Plug&Cool Barn System – an all-in-one solution that enables automatic wireless crop pile temperature control from a single panel. These bespoke-designed systems have the capacity to handle multiple fans within crop stores of all sizes. Meanwhile, Gibbons continues to provide its comprehensive range of electrical farm services for new and

existing agricultural buildings, such as mains power, lighting and wiring. This complements Gibbons’ range of electrical and mechanical equipment for agricultural applications, which includes electric motors, pumps, gearboxes, ABB variable-speed drives, air-handling systems and control panels.

Packaged solutions Henry Siggers, who farms 450ha of Group 1 milling wheat at Leapingwells Farm in Kelvedon, Essex is one of many to benefit from the packaged solutions delivered by Gibbons. Mr Siggers turned to Gibbons when planning a new 160 x 50ft grain and fertiliser flatstore, with a requirement for electrical services, pedestal fans and Airspear fans. As it was imperative to have the project completed in time for harvest, and preferring to deal with a familiar single contractor for the entire electrical works, Mr Siggers commissioned Gibbons to deliver a complete package of products and services. Led by Matthew Gibbons, the project included the supply and

installation of five high-bay lights, roller shutter door controls, panel-mounted socket outlets for each of the three bays and a main control board along with 63 amp supply and all wiring. In addition, Gibbons supplied four 2.2kW aluminium grain store fans and pedestals, which were connected to a thermostat system to ensure the grain

can remain at a temperature no higher than 15°C as the weather fluctuates. Mr Siggers says: “I highly recommend Gibbons. Matthew has been very easy to deal with and I can always reach him on his mobile. Everything has been done to quote and on time.” ■ Hall 8, Stand 8.412.

Show launch for 4-cylinder tractors A new range of McCormick 4-cylinder tractors with a number of performance and driver comfort advances will be launched at Lamma. The McCormick X7.440 P6-Drive destined for the event will represent a 3-model line-up of higher-spec 4-cylinder tractors with maximum power outputs from 141–176hp with ‘power boost’ on all models and a new slick-shifting powershift transmission. The tractor will be displayed among a selection of models representing the mid to high horsepower span of the McCormick range, from the 119hp X6.45 to the 310hp X8.680 VT-Drive. “Our stand will make a clear statement about how the McCormick range has developed into a thoroughly modern line-up of products supported by independent dealers who put customer service at the top of their priorities,” says managing director of UK operations, Adrian Winnett. “While some manufacturers seek to control their dealers by pushing them to sell more tractors and equipment of a single brand, Argo Tractors champions independent dealers with strong customer focus who are free to choose the best implement franchises for them and the farmers they supply.” The new Tier 4 Final versions of the McCormick X7.4 tractors offer a well-equipped machine capable of handling a wide range of tasks on livestock, arable and mixed enterprise farms, says the company. There is a choice of simpler-spec Efficient and full-feature Premium semi-powershift models, and stepless transmission models to the Premium specification. All versions are powered by a

4.5-litre BetaPower engine from FPT Industrial, with an SCR plus DOC emissions control package for Euro Stage IV / US Tier 4 Final compliance. But there is no DPF soot filter, which on tractors with such a device requires an occasional fuel burn to clear ash deposits. Performance with PTO-driven implements and when pulling trailers, tankers and spreaders has been given a lift now that boost power features on all models. The X7.440 has a maximum power output of 141hp for draft work, which automatically increases to 150hp under load in the upper gears – ie for transport applications – and when a PTO-driven field implement is being operated. Similarly, the X7.450’s 155hp output rises almost 6.5 per cent, or 10hp, to 165hp for these non-draft applications, while power for the X7.460 also goes up 10hp, from 166 to 176hp.

New P6-Drive transmission The new P6-Drive transmission – which is already doing service in the 6-cylinder X7 Series Tier 4 Final tractors launched at Lamma in January 2018 – serves up more ratios in total and 6 instead of 4 powershift steps to deliver outstanding speed control versatility. Buyers get to use 30 forward and 15 reverse speeds with the standard transmission format or 54 forward and 27 reverse with the creep option. Auto shifting can be used in ‘Field’ and ‘Road’ modes, with the latter providing hands-free shifts through all five ranges, resulting in easier and often more productive operation in the field, as well as more comfortable road travel. The Argo Tractors control software provides

‘intelligent’ range and powershift selection according to the load on the tractor. There are also VT-Drive versions of all three models, with an advanced CVT transmission providing seamless speed changes, easy driving characteristics and a choice of operating modes that can be finetuned for different applications.

Premium specification VT-Drive tractors come only with the McCormick Premium specification, which includes a seat-mounted armrest control console; they also have Argo’s 12in Data Screen Manager touch-screen terminal as standard for setting the transmission, electrically-operated spool valves, headland management and other functions. These features, including the Data Screen Manager terminal, are also available as options on Premiumspec versions of the P6-Drive models, which share with their VT-Drive counterparts the 9,300kg rear hitch

lift, digital air conditioning, generous standard tyres and various in-cab and equipment enhancements. Inside the spacious Premiere cab, increased clearance for swivelling the super deluxe air suspension seat is among the upgrades. For operators who prefer a simpler, more mechanical orientated specification, Efficient versions of the P6-Drive tractors have a traditional right-hand control panel, manual spool valves and 6,300kg capacity rear linkage. Features common to all McCormick X7.4 Series tractors include a 123-litres/min piston pump hydraulics system, which on Efficient versions can be exchanged for a lower-cost 88-litres/min open-centre gear pump set-up. A separate 44-litres/min pump is dedicated to the steering and ancillaries such as the 4wd and PTO clutches, while 4-speed PTO provides ‘power’ and ‘economy’ gearing for both 540 and 1000rpm shaft speeds. ■ Hall 8, Stand 8.604.

LAMMA 2019 preview Delicate weeding operations made possible UK manufacturer Garford will be showcasing its Robocrop Baby Leaf Hoe at the show this year. The machine is designed for hoeing in delicate crops such as baby salad and herbs using inter-row technology and disc steering to carefully weed between rows as narrow as sub 50mm. It is designed to deliver accurate inter-row hoeing in closely spaced

crops seeded using width roller type seeders producing a perfectly flat surface. Maximum weed control of 5mm accuracy is achieved using unique shares for minimal soil disturbance. Special baby weeder rakes ensure weed roots are exposed to leave a perfect finished surface while the low camera position helps ensure accuracy.

Using a mechanical weeding method over herbicide application enables weed control as well as aeration and drainage while also breaking the soil cap for further crop establishment, says Garford. ■ Hall 19, Stand 19.454. The Robocrop Baby Leaf Hoe from Garford is specifically designed for weeding between narrow rows of delicate crops.

Advanced handling systems

The Tong EasyClean has been working in heavy soil conditions this year.

Vegetable handling equipment manufacturer Tong Engineering, is once again exhibiting at Lamma to meet growers and packers to discuss the latest innovations and advanced handling systems for 2019. The FieldLoad PRO is the first of a series of new and advanced machines that Tong is currently unveiling to the market, with a new, high capacity box filler being next in line and available to order in 2019. “Our latest product launches are very much a result of our solutionsbased design process in which we listen to our customers, and define emerging market demands, to develop new equipment that meets those demands within a cost-

effective budget,” explains managing director, Edward Tong. “Based on our proven Fieldloader machine, the FieldLoad PRO has been designed to bring growers an even more compact and versatile machine that receives and cleans crop at high capacities straight from the harvester,” he says. “This allows soil and debris to be removed from crop in the field, while significantly reducing transport of crop from field to farm. “In addition to the developments in our in-field solutions, this year has seen the latest advancements in our Caretaker grader come into their own,” says Tong Engineering sales manager, Nick Woodcock. “Our Auto-Touch

HMI Pro-Series control features have made set-up and control of the new 2018 machines exceptionally easy, to suit the variety of crop cleaning and grading conditions growers have been faced with during harvest this year. “Our market leading EasyClean has been working in some particularly heavy soil conditions,” says Nick. “The level of soil and haulm removal I have seen with the EasyClean this season has been remarkable, and one which many customers have once again reported as invaluable,” he adds. “We look forward to seeing farmers and growers from all over the UK at Lamma.” ■ Hall 8, Stand 8.600.

New rotary cultivator A new rotary cultivator is to be launched by Maschio at Lamma. The Jane Bed Tiller enables root crop, vegetable, fruit and flower growers to intensively till soils and form beds prior to establishment of the crop. Based around Maschio’s Panterra rotary cultivator it is designed for use on high horsepower tractors of 200-380hp in tough conditions. The robust double ‘A’ frame headstock, heavily built chassis and twin folding rams ensure the working sections of the machine are held precisely and allow firm downward pressure to be exerted by the machine’s rear hoods to create the beds. The maximum working depth of the Jane is 27cm and depth can be adjusted via a series of cylinders on the rear of the bed-forming hoods. The main rotor and bearings feature a Duo-Cone sealing system which ensures the Jane is low maintenance, while guaranteeing reliability and maintaining a completely waterproof or amphibious bearing housing. Coupled with the oil-immersed gear

drive for each rotor, this keeps the system fully enclosed and protected. The Jane bed tiller is offered in a range of working widths from 4.28-6.28m. The width of the beds produced is specified at the time of order but can be adjusted by removing or fitting additional wedge kits as necessary. It can be specified to form 3, 4, 6 or 8 beds by adjusting the wedge bed formers, which gives a range of bed widths from 130mm (8 bed, 420 model) to 1,680mm (3 bed, 620 model). The Jane 520 (working width 5.28m) on display on the Opico stand at Lamma will feature two new options recently introduced by Maschio. Firstly, a quick-fit blade system using one bolt to fit two blades at a time. Unlike quick fit blade systems on power harrows, which do not use any bolts, Maschio found that rotary cultivator blades need to be firmly fixed to eliminate rotor wear and maximise effectiveness. This new system halves

the fitting time for replacement blades but keeps them firmly in place to do the best job possible. In addition, the Jane on display will have a new internal hood fitted that is now available on many of the larger rotary cultivators in the Maschio range. The new Anti-Clogging liner inside the

hood is made from high density polyethylene, which dramatically reduces the amount of soil that sticks to the inside of the hood, significantly reducing running costs, therefore improving forward speeds and work rates. Prices start at £41,989. ■ Hall 6, Stand 6.230.

The new generation of Vredo overseeders will be on show at Lamma.

LAMMA 2019 preview Potato handling specialist Potato handling specialist David Harrison will be exhibiting its range of advanced stitching lines, automatic palletisers and high accuracy multihead weighers at this year’s Lamma. Prinsen of Holland’s multihead weigher with 10 or 12 weighing scales is a product-friendly machine for potatoes, onions and carrots, says the company. Prinsen uses speed adjustable belts instead of vibrator channels to feed the weighing scales. “These are our most intelligent systems and yet our simplest to set up for the user's produce,” says Harrison’s

Gary Palmer. The company also supplies Symach high volume palletisers with 3 models available capable of throughputs from 10-37t of 25kg bags per hour, and the Prinsen palletiser with average daily outputs of up to 9t/hour. Both will stack up to 13 layers of 25kg bags. David Harrison is distributor for vegetable bagging and handling equipment manufactured by The Sack Filling Company of Braintree, Essex and a large range of used and refurbished packhouse machinery including conveyors and graders. ■ Hall 8, Stand 8.902.

Revamped range of overseeders Cheshire-based JC Machinery will be showcasing the new generation of Vredo agricultural overseeders. Vredo has developed precision overseeding machinery for more than 30 years with a focus on functionality and aesthetics in order to provide customers with more precise and sleeker models. Every aspect of the range has been analysed and reimagined to improve the user experience and end results. The lid and rear of the seed hopper have been given round shapes, making it easier for the seed to find its way towards the cam wheel while the platform has been made easier to reach. The Agri Air and Twin series calibration trays are now mounted on the inside of the lid, so the tray cannot be lost in action while always being stored in a dry place. The platform on

The upgraded Berthoud Raptor.

Upgrades to sprayers revealed The mid cab self-propelled sprayers by Berthoud have undergone a series of upgrades improving operator convenience and safety as well as performance. The Bosch Rexroth hydrostatic transmission has cruise control and eco functionality as standard. The Cruise control enables the operator to predefine working speeds by setting the forward speed required which automatically adjusts the engine and hydrostatics to maintain this given speed irrespective of the load.


The eco mode has a computer controlling both the engine and the hydrostatics and can operate in all three speed ranges, 0-18, 0-25 and 0-40kph. This final road speed range is reached at an engine rate of 1,700–1,800rpm, enabling the fuel consumption to be optimised and provides the operator with more flexible use and comfort. A new console display groups the vehicle’s information onto one screen: speed, cruise control, engine revs and steering mode. The spray control is

the Agri Twin is now bigger, mounted higher and equipped with a foldable step for easy access. This makes it easier and safer to load the hopper with heavy seed bags during smaller operations. Enhancements to the machines are completed with the additions of LEDs and striping. Representatives from Vredo will be on the company’s stand to answer any questions about the overseeders. The Imants spader series will also be represented. This series of machines has been constructed to provide maximum performance with minimum fuel consumption and mechanical stress. Imants spaders leave no plough pan, give better incorporation of organic material and leave a perfect seedbed and soil structure in one pass, says the manufacturer. ■ Hall 17, Stand 17.430.

incorporated within an adjustable armrest while the new pivoting high comfort seat automatically adapts to the driver’s weight. Driver comfort is assured by effective heating or cool air ventilation within the seat design. The new Raptor range is fitted with a Rollover Protection Structure (ROPS)

approved cab that meets Category 4 air filtration requirements for optimum user safety. A hydraulically operated bonnet ensures easy access to the power unit and allows routine maintenance to be done more efficiently. ■ Hall 9, Stand 9.464. January 2019

Moisture monitoring in an instant The ability to accurately and automatically check moisture content of wet grain while it passes through a grain drying plant has long been the challenge for grain dryer suppliers. Several manufacturers have in the past attempted to find a solution to this challenge with varying results. After many years of research and development, BDC Systems now has its own system ready for market. Using bespoke sampling units designed and developed by BDC Systems, grain is taken from both the incoming (wet) elevator and outgoing (dry) elevators on a plant. These samples are then processed through a multi-chamber duct incorporating a Sinar moisture probe specifically designed for this application. Live readings showing the moisture content of both samples in a percentage format are displayed on a screen along with a graph showing the moisture trend. Historical data is also stored in the system’s memory for future reference. Called MMS, it can be linked in with BDC’s grain dryer control panel and the data can be remotely viewed

on devices such as mobile phones. The system can be retro-fitted to any grain drying system, subject to a site survey, says BDC. “Following extensive on-site testing at several plants around the country, we are confident that MMS is producing accurate real time data,” commented BDC’s technical manager and head of product development, Matt Grainge. “This information can be used to adjust dryer settings which will save money and ensure grain goes into storage at its optimum moisture content. The ultimate aim is to automate the entire process.”

Product development Much of the product development was carried out with the assistance of Benny Smith of Manor Road Farm in Wantage, Oxfordshire. Mr Smith commented: “After three years of development work at my grain store, the BDC Moisture Monitoring System has now become a valuable tool during the harvest season. I can instantly see any changes in grain moisture going in to the dryer or coming out, and react accordingly.

BDC’s Moisture Monitoring System, or MMS.

It’s easy to operate and the information can be seen at a glance. This is what I have been waiting for!” Kensham Farms near High Wycombe was another of the test sites. Owner Charlie Edgely was hugely impressed saying; “It’s absolutely fantastic. It saved precious time during harvest because, at a glance, I could see which way the incoming and outgoing grain moistures were trending and I could make adjustments to the dryer accordingly. “Previously, wet samples were taken from the intake pit and dry samples had to be taken from the

final destination bunker, which could be awkward and time consuming. Everything is now really convenient; we have the sampling point close to the grainstore office and the control screen in the office next to the other grainstore control panels.” ■ Hall 8, Stand 8.404.

Tanco’s range of bale handling, wrapping and feeding equipment will be on display at Lamma.

Showcase of wrapping and handling kit

Bedec Barn Paint is suitable for a range of applications and surfaces.

Paint with no need for primer Getting a single paint that sticks to any surface without a primer and undercoat would seem impossible but chemists Brian Higgins and David Horn set themselves this task and believe they have succeeded. Their product, Barn Paint, has hardly any odour and is environmentally friendly. Two or three coats can be applied very quickly, especially during the summer months, the company says. Each coat is the same paint, so there are no stresses built up by varying flexibility or drying times. Bedec Barn Paint goes on easily by brush, roller or spray and cleans

up with water. The paint also lets moisture vapour escape from timber while repelling rain. For this reason it is perfect for exposed elevations and the flexibility is good enough to use on surfaces that are prone to movement. Barn Paint is especially useful for difficult substrates such as galvanised surfaces, lead, copper and plastic. Common examples of applications for Barn Paint include silos, windmills, barns, stables, outbuildings, fencing, wood, metal and plastic cladding, and even farm machinery. ■ Hall 17, Stand 17.252.

The range of bale wrappers, handling and feeding equipment from Tanco Autowrap will be showcased. Launched for the 2018 season Tanco’s latest version of its 400 series high output trailed round bale wrapper, the 1400-V is designed and built on the speed, reliability, ease of operation and high output experienced by operators of the 1400-EH. The patented split table of the 1400, which was designed to allow simultaneous wrapped bale unloading and next bale reloading, is retained on the 1400-V, and enhanced with the addition of auto-loading. The 1400-V shares innovative features such as Tanco’s ultra reliable telescopic cut and starts, direct gear drive to the satellite arms and a variable proportional hydraulic system with the S-series linkage/loader wrappers which Tanco will also have on display. The 1540-EH linkage or loader mounted square and round bale

wrapper will also feature on the company’s stand. This machine has been proven to be versatile, efficient, reliable and robust and is in use across the UK on all bale sizes says Tanco. The A-100EH trailed turntable round bale wrapper shares with the 1400-V the innovative chassis concept of having the axle at the rear of the machine. This allows transfer of weight to the tractor making the wrapper very stable on hills and combined with large tyres as standard, it is able to travel well on wet ground. Other features of the A-100EH are autoload and the capability to unload on the move. Also on show will be the I-60 Cleanafeed root crop washer/cleaner and feeder (available in 3-point linkage and loader versions), the I-73 bale shear for feeding bales while keeping hold of the bale wrap and net, and the I-75 multi shear. ■ Hall 19, Stand 19.236. 62753

Technical solutions to food waste Using low-cost digital technologies to meet the challenge of reducing food waste will be the theme of the Martin Lishman stand. The company’s Professional Crop Storage System will be centrestage. With faster filling systems and some stores now reaching 15m deep, store managers face interesting challenges to make existing ventilation systems meet changing needs. The recently introduced P4 Pile-Dry Pedestal is suited to grain stored deeper than 7m, where fast overhead filling can exert considerable force, says the company. It is built 50 per cent stronger to withstand this pressure and has an airflow increased by more than 30 per cent. Improvements in fan design have increased air output performance to achieve the fastest cooling possible, reach target temperatures more quickly and reduce energy costs. Meanwhile Barn Owl wireless cloudbased automatic fan control and remote temperature monitoring can save at least 40 per cent of storage energy costs and provide full traceability via the internet.

Visitors will also be able to discover Martin Lishman’s new ImpacTrack which is being launched at the show. ImpacTrack is a data logger with a family of synthetic food shapes that replicate the movement characteristics of fruit and vegetables prone to damage and bruising during handling and transport. It joins the company’s TuberLog electronic potato, that has helped reduce

damage losses in the potato industry. The ImpacTrack logger can be installed within the packaging of any fresh produce to monitor temperature and impact shock during transit over any distance by road, rail, sea or air. The logger can also be encased in a 3D printed shape that mimics the size, shape

and density of the fruit or vegetable, which allows real-time monitoring or recording of damage during handling at any stage from field to shop floor. The dummy shapes offer a realistic representation of impact ‘black spots’ in handling machinery. ■ Hall 7, Stand 7.434.

Triple combination mower collector Pottinger has introduced the Novacat Crossflow system.

With an increasing area of high value forage crops being grown in the UK for both the livestock feed and renewable energy sectors, the demand increases for high output mowing and swath-merging systems, says Pottinger. Traditional mower collectors

utilise steel tined conditioner units to propel the mown crop onto a pair of conveyor belts to place both swaths on top of the centre swath from the front mower. However the downside of such traditional mower collector systems is that the tine conditioner rotors are

just too aggressive for high energy crops such as forage rye, whole crop silage, lucerne and clover grass mixes, explains the company. The aggressive nature of the conditioner can lead to high grain and/or leaf losses. It’s these critical parts of the plant that contain the

much needed sugars and nutrients essential for the best fermentation once ensiled. In an effort to address this issue Pottinger has introduced the Novacat Crossflow system. This large triple mower combination offers cutting widths of up to 10m when used in conjunction with a front mower. Full hydraulic adjustment of the working width that can also be linked to the tractor’s steering angle sensor, offers automatic adaption to the tractor track as it turns. The cut crop is simply collected by an auger mechanically driven from the rear of the cutterbar. The large diameter robust augers deliver the crop to the centre of the tractor with minimal damage and a low power requirement. For smaller areas the Novacat 352CF is also available which offers a single rear mounted 3.52m cut model that can be used solo, or in conjunction with a front mower. ■ Hall 7, Stand 7.700.

LAMMA 2019 preview A good choice of saw for farmers The latest version of Makita’s popular ‘Farmers Choice’ chainsaw, the new Makita EA5600F45DN bristles with improved features, says the company. Powered by the advanced 2-stroke 55.7cc engine, which delivers a high-torque 4.1hp, and includes the Stratified Air Scavenging (SAS) exhaust system where the SAS system directs unburnt combustion charge back to the induction port. This effectively reduces fuel consumption and ensures that exhaust emissions meet the highest possible standards, adds Makita. It is fitted with a centrifugal air cleaner and HD air filter for the cleanest possible charge. The cord pull recoil starter has spring assistance, and the machine includes a primer pump and an anti-icing port for cold weather operations which keeps the fuel line flowing freely. A new, wider touch and stop engine control switch allows easier operation when working with gloved hands. The EA5600F45DN is fitted with a 45cm chain bar which carries the 0.058in gauge, and 0.325in pitch chain, and has an adjustable flow chain oil system with 0.32-litres capacity. The chainsaw weighs 5.8kg

and is a particularly well balanced machine with large diameter forward grip bar, and a rear grip handle separated from the engine and transmission which reduces vibration transferred to the operator, explains Makita. The 0.57-litre fuel tank affords ample run time. This is now fitted with a useful window to check the fuel level. Another new feature is the captive nuts on the sprocket cover which removes the risk of these being lost in the undergrowth when removed for chain or bar changes. The ‘Farmers Choice’ chainsaw comes supplied in a robust metal carry case. ■ Hall 17, Stand 17.610.

The new EA5600F45DN ‘Farmers Choice’ chainsaw will become the preferred choice for general felling and logging operations, believes Makita.

A potato store fitted out by Welvent.

Even airflow from open fronted ducts Continuing the company’s push for cost effective active recirculation, crop storage specialist Welvent has been building open fronted ducts around many of its ambient refrigeration systems this year. When filling the store with crop, the potato boxes are pushed up against the ducts which work the same way as the ‘Strawson wall’, in that they force air back through the boxes instead of around the sides and above them. This provides a more even airflow and helps with CIPC distribution when used with extra fans on top of the duct to recirculate the gas, explains

Welvent. The company has built stairs up onto the shelf next to the fridge providing safe access to the top of the boxes, and it also hangs rails with reflective tape from the roof to keep people away from the edge of the boxes. Welvent has the experience and the expertise to offer ventilation and refrigeration equipment to suit building requirements. The company can upgrade or renew existing systems, work within existing buildings or fit into new buildings, it concludes. ■ Hall 8, Stand 8.710.

LAMMA 2019 preview Silos with stirrers cut drying costs

The new Cousins Crop Check crimper rollers.

Crimp your cover crop for best results A new crimper roller with helical blades to roll, break and bruise cover crops ahead of the drill has been introduced by Cousins of Emneth. Rolled down in the direction of planting, the cover crop forms a dense weed suppressing mat on the soil surface while allowing successful crop establishment. Front mounting allows rolling and drilling in a single pass. The chevron blade pattern effectively neutralises forces that may pull the tractor off its true course. Moreover it eliminates the bounce associated with straight line blades and the auguring effect of corkscrew blades. As only a small portion of the twisted blade is in contact with the ground at any time, the full pressure

of the roller is applied intensely, optimising the breaking and crimping of stems to aid cover crop desiccation. The blades themselves are blunt as sharp blades can cut through the cover crop and into the soil, dislodging residue and increasing weed seed germination, says Cousins. Optional water ballasting can be used to increase weight if required. Overall diameter is 660mm on a 460mm tube. Weight is 190kg/m (ballast adds up to 150kg/m). Cousins’ Crop Check crimper rollers are available as a complete front-mounted machine to match your drill or as custom-built roller sections to retrofit existing Cambridge rolls or press frames. ■ Hall 12, Stand 12.680.

With the outputs of today’s combine harvesters increasing all the time, silos and the latest in-bin drying systems give the ability to take everything the combine can harvest in a day and give simple and very economical drying of crops, says Danagri-3S. The company has an extensive range of GSI silos ranging from 51–2,500t capacities in a single bin, complemented by a range of fans; heaters; drying floors; aeration kits; unloading equipment; stirrers; grain spreaders; ladders; catwalks and control systems that make modern silo plants into labour and fuel saving investments for the long term. DMC Stirrers can be retro-fitted to any make of bin and allow the operator greater flexibility in drying grain. Use of ambient conditions, low temperature heat or high temperature, high output methods

can be used with Danagri-3S stirrers to give an even moisture content to the whole bin. For filling and emptying the silo, Danagri-3S offers a range of elevators and conveyors, heavy-duty auger conveyors with under-carriages, or its Grain Pump en-masse conveyor system can move grain at up to 300tph. The company also offers free site surveys with advice and consultation to assist farmers in choosing the right system to suit their current and potential future needs. ■. Hall 9, Stand 9.400.

LAMMA 2019 preview Straw tines option added to roller range Improving the versatility of its roller range is the idea behind He-Va’s introduction of the option of straw tines for its Tip Rollers, says importer Opico. Suitable for creating consolidated stale seedbeds ahead of drilling, the addition of two rows of sprung finger tines can turn a set of rolls into a multi-purpose machine, capable of reducing reliance on chemicals for pest and weed problems. As well as their conventional role of seedbed consolidation Tip Rollers with straw tines can be used following the combine to spread and break up crop residues. “The key focus of many arable farmers is to prevent slug damage and minimise black-grass, ideally without the additional cost of pesticides," said Opico managing director, James

Woolway. "These new straw tines can be brought into use with the Tip Roller after drilling to destroy slug eggs before establishment and to encourage black-grass to chit." Following initial cultivation passes, the Tip Rollers can be put to work pre-drilling providing shallow soil movement to generate a surface tilth. Rows of breaker rings provide a firming action and a corrugated, weather-proof finish ready for the drill. Initially successfully launched in 2017 on only the Tip Roller XL, the double straw tines are now available as an optional extra on 6.3, 7.3, 8.2 and 9.5m Tip Rolls as well as 12.3 and 15.3m Tip XL Rolls models. Prices start from £7,422 ■ Hall 6, Stand 6.230.

A full drainage service Lamma 2019 marks the end of the 30th Anniversary celebrations at Miles Drainage – the company having been formed in February 1988 when Peter and Liz Robotham took over the agricultural drainage business from the Miles Family. 2018 has been a year of extreme weather starting with high winds on the second day of Lamma 2018, followed by the ‘Beast from the East’ in late February, heavy rain at Easter time and a long, hot, dry summer, points out the company’s Andrew Wright. “The spring rainfall brought about an increased interest in drainage, with enquiries and bookings well up on previous years and, as I write at the end of November, our company still has three teams working on drainage projects.” According to Mr Wright, remedial drainage on cross-country cable and water projects has also increased Miles’ workload this year, with schemes undertaken in both Sussex and Cumbria, and other potential projects in Kent and Somerset. With the rapidly growing need for fibre optic communications, the

Miles’ Mastenbroek 30/20 Field Trencher.

company has added two trenchless ploughs on quad tracks and waterjetting equipment to its fleet, and these have been kept fully employed on projects around the country. Agricultural drainage remains a major part of the business with the company offering a quality design, installation and maintenance service for all types of farmland throughout the Eastern Counties and beyond. “Miles Drainage is looking forward to the new experience of exhibiting at the NEC, and the opportunity of meeting both new and existing contacts in order to discuss their drainage requirements,” he concludes. ■ Hall 12, Stand 12.236.

LAMMA 2019 preview New trailed drill offers 'high output and nimble handling' The latest offering from Claydon Drills – the 6m OptiTill T6c – is to be revealed at Lamma. This new model builds on the success of the existing 6m T6 drill, one of 6 trailed models from 3-8m. “The new T6c is over 20 per cent lighter and more compact than our standard T6, which was designed for larger farms and contractors which can make full use of its 5,500-litre hopper capacity to maximise the area covered between fills and daily output,” says founder and CEO of Claydon Drills, Jeff Claydon. “The T6c combines the high output of a 6m seeding platform with the nimble handling characteristics and manoeuvrability of our 4m T4 trailed drill. We believe that the new model will prove very popular with farmers in the UK and other countries

The new Claydon T6c.

who value the combination of lower cost and greater manoeuvrability over ultimate hopper capacity and output.” Capable of drilling 45ha per day behind a 300hp (223kW) tractor, the T6c is carried on the lower link arms and features a fully-floating seeding chassis which follows field contours exactly, ensuring accurate seeding depth. The 3,500-litre hopper can be used for seed only or divided 60:40 between seed and fertiliser for combination drilling. The diameter of the pipes which transport seed and fertiliser from the hopper to the tines is 38mm. Versatile, flexible, simple, strong, easy to use and with low operating costs, the T6c will sow directly

into stubble, in min-till situations or on ploughed/cultivated land, across the widest range of soils, conditions and crops says Claydon.

This enables one drill to handle any crop establishment situation and minimises capital investment. ■ Hall 6, Stand 6.600.

Increasing seed quality Always looking for new ways to increase quality and efficiencies, farmer co-operative Openfield has recently launched a new online seed selector to help growers pinpoint their seed needs quickly, and last year invested £250,000 in a state-of-theart seed production plant. Identifying the varieties bestsuited to farmers' local markets and soils can be a major challenge. To support growers through a complex maze of varieties Openfield has created a very smart online tool which allows quick identification of the best varieties to suit them, says the company. Once selected, Openfield’s new colour sorter ensures that the seed is produced to the cleanest possible standard ensuring a quality high yield product. The new colour sorter uses high speed digital signal processing to remove contaminants such as ergot, foreign seeds, wild oats and other impurities. The technology is so precise it allows as much as 60t of seed to be produced every hour. Openfield’s head of seeds business, Lee Bennett said; “We pride ourselves in producing the very best

quality seed and helping growers to pin point their seed needs in seconds. Our new colour sorter and online seed selector are extremely impressive and are helping us to improve our product quality and seed selection even further.” The Openfield team will be on hand at Lamma to demonstrate the online seed selector and to talk about its close relationship with plant breeders and consumers and why the team is able to evaluate varieties well in advance of them becoming commercially available. ■ Hall 20, Stand 20.410.

Efficient and cost effective incinerators

Tractor products, tools and technology The manufacturer of LuK clutch and drive components, and INA front end auxiliary drives (FEAD), Schaeffler (UK) will be highlighting its latest tractor products, tools and technology as it seeks to demonstrate its high-quality products and intelligent repair solutions to the farming community. While LuK clutch systems continue to be the most sought-after product by agricultural engineers, the team will be demonstrating many products from its portfolio, including damper systems and new INA FEAD engine products, both of which are being introduced into the market to cater for developed engine technologies, says the company. The team, led by tractor category manager, Maurice Foot, will also be revealing details of what’s in-store for 2019, which includes the launch of an additional range of FEAD products for SDF applications, along with an extension of Schaeffler’s REPXPERT bonus points loyalty scheme. “We will provide an insight into what we can offer to our customers with our online tractor parts shop,

REPXPERT, with all new registered users set to receive 2,000 ‘welcome bonus points’ and a giveaway bag,” said Mr Foot. “We will also be on-hand to offer advice, help and training to all visitors. We will achieve this by demonstrating correct alignment with our virtual splitting rail, FEAD technical information and much more.” Another exhibit on the display stand will be a classic David Brown Selectamatic 780, which will illustrate how tractors have evolved and how Schaeffler has strived to stay ahead of demand and change in the agricultural world. Mr Foot added: “Today, with higher commercial risks with crops and livestock, plus evolving technical specifications for machines to operate efficiently, agricultural businesses require a guaranteed quality product that will deliver reliable performance. Schaeffler, as an OE and aftermarket manufacturer, will achieve that and more, which we will show at Lamma." ■ Hall 18, Stand 18.416.

Soil conditioner helps reduced tillage strategies A low disturbance soil conditioner is being launched at Lamma by the team at Dale Drills. As a non-drilling piece of equipment, the team decided to launch the product under a new brand, Meir Agricultural. The Meir soil conditioner has been designed to complement reduced tillage strategies. Having tried many combinations of subsoiler frames and legs, the Dales decided that exactly what they wanted for their own farm didn’t exist. “We were looking for a reduced surface disturbance while ensuring effective soil loosening at various depths and conditions, and maintaining a firm finish,” explains Tom Dale. “Most legs caused excessive surface boiling, while many frames positioned legs in ways that prevented effective loosening.” The Meir’s Hardox leg leads with a 25mm wide tungsten point at a shallow angle to reduce surface boil. The wing is 140mm back from the leading tip, which allows it to run in a zone of fractured soil, reducing wear and improving loosening.


A shallow angle on the wing further reduces potential disturbance in the seeding zone while still ensuring effective loosening in the compacted area below. Meanwhile Dale Drills’ range of Eco drills now comes in four different layouts suitable for different sized farms. The tractor mounted Eco-S comes in widths from 3–5m and can be fitted with a drill-mounted or front-mounted hopper. The Eco-M represents the mid-sized offering available in sizes from 3–9m. It uses a more orthodox layout than the larger machines with land wheels positioned between the first and second row of tines with the seed hopper mounted towards the front of the drill. The Eco-L is designed for high output drilling and is available in


sizes from 6–9m. With the seed hopper mounted at the rear and designed to be wide enough to be filled straight from the average forklift bucket, the company says outputs of up to 80ha/day can be achieved with a 9m drill. The Eco-XL was launched at Cereals 2018. The improved layout boasts a stretched chassis with a 6.5t hopper upfront, which allows for an uncluttered folding area with widths up to 13.5m.

See us at

The Meir subsoiler.

Seed delivery is by a pressurised system ensuring both seed and fertiliser are easily blown out to the drill extremities. The XL is available in sizes from 8.0–13.5m and can fold down to less than 3.0m wide and 4.0m high using a 5-section chassis. ■ Hall 20, Stand 20.760.

LAMMA 2019 preview Act now for the sake of safety With one of the highest fatal injury statistics of any industry in the UK, it has never been more crucial for the agricultural sector to ensure fully qualified engineering inspections are implemented and that they meet Health & Safety Executive (HSE) regulations, says Farmers & Mercantile Insurance Brokers. Of the 114 workers killed in the workplace in the past year, 29 were employed in agriculture, making it second only to the construction industry for recorded fatal injuries, according to RIDDOR (Reporting of Injuries Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations) figures. While most farmers will regularly maintain and check machinery and farm vehicles, independent engineering inspections are advised, and are a requirement for lifting equipment. The agriculture sector has, in the past, raised concerns of inspections

being carried out by engineers with no direct experience of operating or maintaining the farm machinery involved, continues the company. With a team of agricultural engineers and inspectors all coming from a farming background, the engineering division at Farmers & Mercantile applies sound practical knowledge to its inspection services. All inspection engineers are also certified by Lloyds British. Farmers & Mercantile machinery inspection engineer, James Baimbridge explains; “The inspections are designed not only to identify performance compromising issues with the potential to become dangerous, but also to provide each machine with a comprehensive service history. "This is a benefit when selling on machinery, or if involved in an accident insurance claim." ■ Hall 10, Stand 10.520.

The Westermann brand is wellknown in Germany for its range of walk-behind and ride-on moss brushes. Now a new partnership has brought the German engineered products to the UK. They join an evergrowing product list for Spa Power Machinery, which is also European distributor of the Australian made, Easy Petrol Post Driver. There are battery- and Hondapowered engine options, both of which can provide an eco-friendly and chemical free solution to cleaning. Meanwhile the Westermann Ride-On tractor unit is available with a big hydraulic system for various attachments within the range. Laurie Anthony, director at Spa said: “We are delighted to begin this next chapter within our business. We visited the Westermann HQ in Germany and were happy to see that our company ethos matched

Sound-proofed irrigation pumps t Sound-proofed versions of Bauer diesel engine irrigation pump sets have a choice of engines, pumps and levels of electronic control, including remote monitoring and documentation. u Elcos CIM250 control panel.

Fully noise-insulated irrigation pump sets for water abstraction in locations where an exposed diesel engine running for hours on end is likely to cause a disturbance will be added to Bauer’s comprehensive crop irrigation equipment range at Lamma. The mobile pump set design offers a choice of engines and fuel tank sizes, has a well-proven pump, and an electronic control panel that can be linked to Bauer’s SmartRain remote

control system via an app on a smart phone or other mobile device. Unlike the open canopy pump sets produced by Bauer, the new design has a fully sound-proofed enclosure for the engine, pump and controller, which are accessible via lockable doors. Only suction and pressure hose couplings, the engine exhaust silencer and an emergency stop button are located outside the canopy. The pump set’s two-wheel chassis



has galvanised steel mudguards, generous tyres and road lighting, plus four crank handle wind-down stability legs and a removable drawbar for security. It also incorporates a choice of 650-, 1,000- and 1,500-litre diesel tanks with a lockable filler camp located within the canopy, to fuel an engine from FPT Industrial – successor to the Iveco engines business – tuned to provide the power and torque characteristics needed for an engine running at constant revs for long periods. There is a choice of 4.5-litre, 4-cylinder engines from 100hp (74kW) to a 6.7-litre 6-cylinder with 125hp (93kW) output driving Caprari MEC MG 80-4/3A and MEC 100HT/2a centrifugal pumps. This pump is primed manually as standard from the on-board Supertank supply or automatically


with an upgrade to the Elcos CIM250 control panel that provides ignition key start/stop, a rev counter and hour meter, engine protection in the event of low oil level or pressure or coolant loss, a flow switch connector and pump pressure transducer. The optional CIM136 controller adds automatic engine speed control to maintain water pressure and an integrated modem for remote start/ stop via a mobile phone, as well as the potential to remotely monitor, control and receive status messages from the pumpset via Bauer’s SmartRain irrigation management and documentation system. SmartRain enables users of Bauer Rainstar reel irrigator and Centerstar pivot systems to keep track of one or several irrigators remotely via an office computer or via the mobile phone app. ■ Hall 7, Stand 7.712.

LAMMA 2019 preview Award winner returns to Lamma The team at Wessex International is looking forward to returning to Lamma following its win at last year’s show. The company took the award for best new product or innovation in livestock production equipment for its BF-180 modular feeding and bedding machine. The machine is built in the company’s factory in Hampshire and is effectively two machines in one which can help reduce feed bills by 20 per cent says Wessex. “The BFR-180 attracted a great deal of attention at the show,” says Wessex area sales manager, Jake Browning. “It has also proved to be a winner in terms of the number of demonstrations and

Second honour clinched Staff at Wisbech-based agricultural automation machinery company Agrimech had plenty of reasons to smile recently after they picked up a trophy at the Manufacturing MX awards for the second year running. Having scooped the prize for Manufacturing Services last year, this time Agrimech came away from the awards ceremony at Liverpool’s Exhibition Centre with the honour for the best progressive SME (small to medium enterprise). The company’s Belinda Smith said the award was a huge surprise and she was delighted to see the hard work of the company’s staff recognised and rewarded by the panel of industry experts. “Customer service is our number one priority at Agrimech. All the machinery we supply is made by us, and all our staff at all levels understand how it works. “This award category isn’t one that’s open for nominations, it’s one that the organisers choose to give, so being told we’re a beacon and an example to others is hugely gratifying and gives our approach the seal of approval from the industry. We couldn’t be more proud.” ■ Hall 8, Stand 8.924.

sales throughout last year and since its launch. We are exceptionally pleased to have won the award and the first day at Lamma was the best we’ve had to date for leads and sales. It was sad the second day was cancelled but we are very much looking forward to exhibiting at the NEC.” The BFR-180 can feed round bales of hay, haylage, straw and silage from either side and only requires one tractor or telehandler to operate. Maintenance is low with only four grease points and no electrics. With the Crossfire straw spreader attachment bedding and feeding can be undertaken with the same machine.

The Midi Lite requires only a 1t lift capacity.

See us at Hall 18 Stand 18.640

Self-loading spreader for smaller loaders Spread-a-Bale has added the Midi Lite to its range of equipment – the first ever side mounted, self-loading straw spreading machine for rectangular bales weighing 400kg maximum. It will appeal to livestock farmers with smaller lift capacity loaders, says the company. Extending Spread-a-Bale’s M series, the 500kg Midi Lite requires only a 1t lift capacity and is suitable for most tractor front-end loaders as well as skidsteer type loaders. Spreading distance is up to 14m to the left by a single horizontal rotor. The machine is powered hydraulically and requires a maximum 55-litres/min oil flow. The chain drive to the rotor motor can be geared differently to compensate for lower flow rates.

The Midi Lite features one horizontal rota for side loading and side spreading. The head can be elevated to reduce total width if door access is limited to less than 3m, enabling the machine to enter the majority of livestock buildings. Spread-a-Bale’s Michael Hughes comments: “The Midi Lite completes Spread-a-Bale’s portfolio, enabling livestock farmers with smaller lift capacity loaders to make up to 75 per cent reduction in spreading time and labour, and, equally important, make significant straw savings of approximately around 40 per cent with mini Heston bales.” The Midi Lite standard list price is £11,500 and it's available from Spread-a-Bale’s dealer network. ■ Hall 17, Stand 17.604.

It’s important to think of the soil as a living system and not a growing medium. Given the right tools, a living soil is capable of looking after itself and providing most, if not all, of the nutrients a crop needs. “Cultivation disrupts the soil’s biology as well as its structure – too much tillage is detrimental to worm, mycorrhizal fungi and

LAMMA 2019 preview Tomorrow’s world of spray technology

Stacking solution

The Transtacker 4100.

The new Transtacker 4100 has been significantly improved from its highly successful predecessor, says Big Bale Company (South). With the addition of a bump bar mounted on the tractor front linkage to move the bale from the wheelings, the new machine is fully CTF compatible, although it can operate without it, adds the company. The Transtacker is capable of picking up a wide variety of different large square bale sizes and by ‘tying’ the layers together, immediately produces a safe and stable stack. The machine can then re-collect existing stacks, allowing the operator to clear a field quickly to the headland for example, moving them later when time allows.

The Transtacker 4100 is also capable of collecting and stacking part loads, completely removing the need for a telehandler to pick up stray bales. The new machine is fully automatic, reducing stress to the operator, while increasing the efficiency and speed with which a field of bales can be cleared. This can be vital during a period of unsettled weather during harvest. The Transtacker comes as standard with features such as air brakes, flotation tyres and an adjustable drawbar height among other items, concludes Big Bale Company (South). ■ Hall 6, Stand 6.520.

Precision spray application is now a reality to deliver a step change in crop agronomy and achieve more efficient results from crop inputs. Having pioneered many of today’s practical application techniques, Lamma will be the showcase for Syngenta’s continued investment and research into smart innovations to further improve the precision and performance of future applications. Some of the innovative Syngenta precision application R&D on show will include: • New 90 per cent Drift Reduction Technology nozzle research • Variable rate application to manage crop growth • Spot weeding among growing crops • UV light surface coverage assessment Syngenta New Farm Technologies specialist, James Thomas, believed the pace of change in precision application technology is poised to change the way

sprays are applied. “Changes are being driven by growers’ demands to be ever more efficient, along with legislative pressure to be better and more targeted. “Some of these new innovations will be standard farm practice in the future,” he pointed out. “Lamma will be a first chance for growers, agronomists and operators to see and discuss the potential.” Some new developments are a culmination of Syngenta’s own application research capability, along with smart collaborations with commercial companies. “This approach has given some highly innovative and inspirational small businesses access to skills and scale to develop their ideas,” highlighted James. “While working with established machinery manufacturers ensures developments can be brought onto farm quickly, cost effectively and with full support.” Hall 10, Stand 10.300.

Brock’s open day

Essex cultivations day enjoys strong attendance A late November open day at J Brock & Sons’ Thaxted, Essex base provided an opportunity to view a wide range of cultivation products in action. David Williams attended.

Second-hand machinery dealer, and cultivator and drill manufacturer J Brock & Sons has been looking after the needs of farmers across East Anglia and beyond for more than 40 years. New machinery includes TWB mole drainers and subsoilers and, in 2015, the company became the main UK importer for Czech-manufactured Farmet machinery including cultivators and drills.

Drill development Its own Brock AG range, manufactured at the Essex base, includes subsoilers and cultivators and, in 2015, development of its own tine drill began. At the 2016 autumn demonstration a prototype drill was seen working for the first time, using a frame and hopper recovered from a trade-in machine and, in 2017, a trial production version was shown, labelled the Brock AG Campaign drill with a host of exclusive features. The heavy land farm which is Brock’s base is an ideal demonstration site, providing working conditions which are always challenging, whether wet or dry. At this year’s event the land

was damp and sticky throughout the day, although the day’s weather started dry with persistent rain setting in from late afternoon. However, with so much machinery working well in the tricky conditions, potential customers remained in the field despite a biting cold wind.

Campaign drill

Mounted subsoilers “There was considerable interest in subsoilers, including new mounted models added to our own range,” explained director Philip Brock. “We also demonstrated the Farmet Fantom cultivator working with and without a rear packer, and a brand new Farmet Triton combination disc and tine cultivator with considerable appeal to those looking for both high work rates and effective soil and trash mixing. The Campaign drill has also had a few improvements as a result of on-going farm testing this year, and it attracted a great deal of interest.” In warmer conditions indoors; a range of tools, parts and accessories was available to purchase at special prices and visitors took advantage of many deals on offer.

Brock’s Campaign drill, available in working widths up to 13.5m remains in development but was demonstrated at the event. Updates during the past year include a revised seed and fertiliser metering layout. Previously seed and nutrients were fed into the airstream at different points; but now the two meters are back-to-back, and trials have proved successful at drilling rates of up to 250kg/ha each of seed and fertiliser, at up to 15kph, while also applying slug pellets and Avadex (tri-allate). “Introducing both products at a single venturi means there is no restriction to the flow,” explained Philip. The tine drill, with 150mm (6in) coulter spacing and vertical tines across 4 bars is designed to cope with wet conditions and the heaviest clay soils, but will also direct-drill when conditions are ideal. The Campaign drill is pictured successfully planting winter wheat in the demonstration field during the afternoon, just prior to the heavy rain, following demonstrations by a wide range of different cultivators.

Farmet cultivator

Popular tools Socket sets, wrenches and cordless power tools were popular on the Draper stand. “One battery fits the range of tools which keeps the system simple and reduces costs,” explained Essex area sales representative Jonathan Brown. “Brock is a good dealer for us and the dealer’s team is straightforward and friendly. It’s good to see so many farmers and contractors here today taking advantage of the special offers.”

More over page... Displayed working in the UK for the first time was the Farmet Triton primary cultivator. With two rows of large 560mm discs followed by tines and a packer the combination cultivator achieved a very good standard of finish, impressing those watching it. Rear packer intensity can be reduced with weight transferred to the main wheels to leave an open tilth for over-winter.

Brock’s open day

Mounted subsoiler

Satisfied user

...More on previous page New mounted versions have been added to Brock’s own subsoiler range. The trailed Sub-V, available in 4.5–8.0m working widths, is joined by 3.0 and 4.0m mounted folding models. The Underburst 30/60 at the event had a shearbolt-protected, lowdisturbance loosening leg and a Brock rear packer. “We didn’t previously have our own low-disturbance leg to offer, and there was only a toothed packer option for the Underburst,” explained Philip. “The Sub-V deeper working subsoilers are now available in working widths from 3–8m and with increased options available. Mounted versions of the Sub-V are very competitively priced and we have had considerable interest in the 4m, 7-leg mounted folding version.”

Primary and secondary cultivations “We needed a cultivator suitable for primary and secondary cultivations on a real mix of soils, from light to very heavy,” explained Anthony Wiseman, partner in Saffron Walden, Essexbased collaborative farming venture AWT. “It also had to work effectively at a range of depths. A pre-production version of the Farmet Fantom was trialled in very poor working conditions. It performed well, and challenging conditions at the time reassured us it would work in any conditions we might need it to in future. Since it was purchased it’s worked in extremely dry, hard soils where other cultivators couldn’t penetrate and wet, sticky soils which brought others to a standstill. “Back-up from Brocks is excellent and although our machine was preproduction; each time we provided feedback regarding performance, if changes were needed these were made within just a few days. We are very pleased with the product and the service.”

Another satisfied Fantom user is AV Simms & Son, based at St Albans. “We are farmers and contractors,” explained partner Geoff Simms. “There are limited options around 12m working width and we looked at several brands. We had a demonstration of the Fantom in 2017 and were impressed by its performance, and we also liked the build quality, features and competitive price. “It was delivered this August and worked throughout the autumn, mainly on medium clay loams with lots of flint. It’s pulled by a Challenger 865 and has cultivated 1,200ha working direct on stubbles, with 120–150ha also receiving a second pass to achieve a finer seedbed. It’s done a great job and proved reliable, and when we next need cultivation equipment we will certainly look at Farmet again.” Pictured with Geoff (centre) is Stuart Tait (right), who is the Fantom’s main user. “It does a really good job,” he said. “I’m impressed by its build quality, it’s reliable and solid and when it is dropped into the ground behind a high horsepower tractor there is no fear of anything breaking, even in tough conditions. Its work-rate is impressive too.” Also pictured is machinery operator and current farm student Jake Gosney.

Working lights Kramp account manager Jolean Mason is pictured with product specialist Andy Ward and some of the company’s range of LED lights, which are proving popular. “Working lights in particular are in demand,” suggested Jolean. “Light bars provide superb illumination for field work and the range displayed created a great deal of interest.” Andy said long, dark days and colder weather have increased demand for battery chargers and starter packs. “Adblue dispensers continue to be fast moving items,” he added. “Our latest nozzle prevents diesel being discharged into the Adblue tank using a simple safety valve and this is very popular currently at £295.48; considerably less expensive than having the Adblue tank and system professionally drained after misfilling.”

Weld-on parts Duratil weld-on edge facings and tips extend working life up to five times that of standard metal parts. That was the message from Brock Parts manager Peter Gilder who is pictured with a Duratiltipped power harrow tine. “Duratil parts are used to upgrade or replace standard components,” he said. “We have had a very successful year selling pattern replacement wearing parts for all brands of cultivator and drills, but we are also busy supplying genuine Sumo and Great Plains components, many of which we keep in stock.”

Farm sale

Large Bedfordshire dispersal sale draws the crowds A late November farm machinery dispersal sale at Potton, Bedfordshire generated some excellent prices for the vendor Collings Farm Partnership. Arranged by long-established land agents and auctioneers Brown & Co, the sale was due to a change in farming policy by the vendor. Buyers were mainly from East Anglia, the Eastern Counties and the Midlands although some of the lots sold ended up further afield including northern Scotland. “Wet weather during the previous days helped attendance, as for many farmers it was too wet to carry out field work,” explained Brown & Co partner, land agent and auctioneer Chris Purllant. “General machinery was bought by end users and by the trade for resale, but the large quantity of irrigation equipment on offer was

of particular interest to farmers. The combination of a dry 2018 where many farms lacked sufficient irrigation capacity, coupled with improved potato prices has led to high demand for irrigators, pumps and pipework and this sale was no exception resulting in strong competition for the lots on offer, and good prices achieved.” Chris said demand for secondhand machinery remains strong. “We have seen at recent sales that used equipment is selling well, and if it is clean, tidy and well maintained then prices achieved have been excellent. We have several more sales coming up in the New Year and predict machinery will continue to sell well.”

Tractors and combines sold well, but irrigation equipment was in particularly strong demand. t Safe and secure fuel storage is essential, and this Titan Fuel Master 5,000-litre bunded tank with a singlephase pump and meter sold for £425.

u A tidy Husqvarna 435 chainsaw with a local Collings Bros dealer sticker, and sold with protective trousers, made £75. t An included lot was this 1992 Deutz-Fahr Topliner 4060H combine harvester with straw chopper and a 14ft header and trolley. It was registered on a J-plate, carried Collings Bros dealer stickers and had worked only 2,642 hours. The Continental 23.1-26 drive tyres were sound but perished around the cleats. The Fulda rear tyres had 60 per cent tread. In good condition it sold for £12,700.

t This Bateman Contour Hi-Lo 24m selfpropelled sprayer was secured by a trade buyer. It was an ‘included’ lot and stood on Goodyear 48-25-20 Terra Tires which were all well worn but sound. It also came with a full set of Alliance 270/95R36 rowcrop wheels and tyres which had 50 per cent remaining tread, but were perished around the cleats. The sprayer had a blob marker and RDS Delta 34 automatic regulation. It was tidy, had an NSTS certificate displayed to 10/17, and sold for just £5,000.

With 40kph transmission it was on BKT 460/85R38 rear tyres with 90 per cent remaining tread and FarmPro Radial 70 420/70R28 front tyres with 70 per cent tread. A full set of 10 wafer weights plus centre block was fitted and the tractor had 2 manual spools. The winning bid was from a trade buyer who paid £12,100. u A 1995 Case IH Maxxum Synchro 5140 4wd on an M-plate, with 9,805 recorded hours and on Goodyear Super Traction Radial 16.9R38 rear and 14.9R24 front tyres, all about 40 per cent, had suffered damage to its front grill and both mudguards. The cab was well worn and the seat was ripped, but the winning bid from a Bucks farmer was fair at £6,400. t This Case IH Maxxum MX135 carried its original Collings Bros main dealer stickers and was a 1997 model registered on a P-plate. It had 40kph transmission, 2 manual spools and was on BKT 300/95R46 rear tyres with approximately 90 per cent tread and 270/95R32 front tyres, with 95 per cent tread. A full set of 10 wafer weights plus a centre block was fitted. The cab was tidy and the seat was worn but tear-free and the hour meter displayed 11,546 working hours. The winning £11,200 bid was from a trade buyer, who also bought the MX120.

p A very unusual lot which provoked a lot of discussion at the event was this Marshall D844 4wd. It was a 1992 model on a J-plate and it had worked 10,049 hours. Generally it was very tidy with all its bodywork faded but intact, although vandals had smashed all the cab glass windows except the right-hand door. It sold to an enthusiast/trader for £7,600.

p Looking over the Marshall ahead of the bidding are (l-r) farmers James Winter and Matthew King, both from near Godmanchester, Cambs. As can be seen in the picture Matthew’s young daughter Emily was equally keen on the Marshall.

An enthusiastic crowd gathers around auctioneer Michael Alexander during bidding for the unusual Marshall.

Two Track Marshalls were ‘included’ in the sale. A TM135 (foreground) was a 1984 model, with rear linkage and PTO. The cab condition reflected its age but was tidy and the modified radiator air intake was a carry-over from use for cultivations after straw stubble burning, to reduce intake of ash disturbed by the tracks. It sold for £4,000. The TM155 was slightly newer. Manufactured in 1989 it carried a Robert H Crawford dealer sticker. Its tracks were in good condition, the cab was tidy but the seat had a few rips and it had recorded 3,840 hours. The winning bid was from an enthusiast/trader who paid £5,600.

p The sky cleared and bright sun encouraged buyers to stick around for the final lots, including the tractors.

p A 1996 Amac VRU onion windrower, which still held onions harvested when it was last used, sold for £1,000.

The joy of six for YAMS

Around 12,000 visitors attended YAMS in 2018, with over 200 trade stands.

“We have a fantastic line-up of machinery dealers exhibiting, including Russells; Ripon Farm Services; Scrutons; Claas Eastern; Farmstar; Brian Robinson Machinery and Peacock & Binnington – often using YAMS as their main launch pad for new machinery models.”

Wide appeal

There is an atmosphere about the Yorkshire Agricultural Machinery Show – YAMS – that is somewhat different to any other large-scale machinery event, and in its first five years it has continually set new records for trade stand numbers and visitor attendance. “Whatever we do it just keeps growing,” says YAMS founder and organiser Richard Tasker of York Auction Centre. The Show, in its 6th year, takes place on Wednesday 6th February, at Murton, near York. “There is most definitely an appetite for the show that seems unabated and there is a feeling among many who have taken stands over the first five years

that it could be extended to two days,” he comments. “Regardless of whether that happens or not, and we will continue monitoring response to the suggestion at YAMS in 2019, we are delighted with the way in which the show has become an integral part of Yorkshire and the North of England’s show scene.

While the county is the base for many manufacturers which are recognised nationally, YAMS is about much more than Yorkshire companies and Yorkshire farmers, continues Mr Tasker. “Visitors come from further afield every year, from down into the Midlands and as far north as Cumbria, Northumberland and the border counties of Scotland. “The 2018 show attendance was way in excess of anything we had achieved in the first 4 years with

around 12,000 visitors, and with over 200 trade stands. We had already received around 40 new requests for trade stand packs for 2019 by November, and we are confident this year’s trade stands will number at least 220.” Seminar meetings with guest speakers made their debut at YAMS last year and Mr Tasker is in no doubt that the subject matter will be as high profile as it is possible to be at YAMS in February. “We will be just weeks away from the scheduled Brexit date and, with all its connotations, it is bound to be uppermost in people’s minds. “Clearly none of us know what everything will entail at present but subjects such as the Agriculture Bill, farming without the Basic Payment Scheme, grant funding and environment land management will all be on the agenda. We hope to have some high profile speakers on the platform.” ■

Grain & Fertiliser


by Graham Henderson

Grain Gossip As I type, Westminster has gone into meltdown and it's unclear as to when the vote on Mrs May's Brexit deal will go ahead, or indeed if she will remain in power for long. Ahead of this though, feed wheat in the UK has risen around £2/t and is now about £164/t for January movement exfarm. Feed barley is only around £1/t behind this. On world trading the influence of China and US suspension of tariffs for 90 days has had the effect of firming prices. This is not certain to be permanent but likely to continue as an on-going variable. I cannot see a swift conclusion to this particular problem while “Mr Trumpet” is in charge. Across the world there are other problems affecting prices ranging from limitations on

November and early December have been quiet sales periods for most fertiliser products and present prices are well worth taking up, as it is highly likely that strong demand in the New Year will make prices rise. With an increase in spring demand the usual problems will also arrive with a shortage of transport to carry out deliveries. Make your decisions now to get the best value. 34.5 per cent ammonium nitrate is currently around £295–£297/t for January delivery with imported product around £10/t below this. Granular urea is around £300/t for the same month which makes it a very competitive buy. NS products (say 27 N 30 SO3) are £20/t above nitrogen. While giving you an NS price it is very worthwhile repeating previous comments that I have made as to the importance of applying sulphur both to oilseed and cereal crops. Although oil prices have fallen in the past month this appears to have had little effect on fertilisers prices.

Rugby Ramblings With a full weekend of Heineken Cup rugby there have been some very good matches to watch on TV. It was no great surprise to me that on Friday night Edinburgh defeated Newcastle as they are a strong Scottish team. The win by Leinster over Bath was also highly likely but it was an excellent match. The surprise of the weekend to me was the defeat of Exeter by Gloucester making it two defeats for Exeter in a week. This leaves them at the bottom of Pool 2 with little hope of recovery as they only have three points with one match to go. Toulouse

It is not often that we talk about soil in great detail and it could be argued that it is sometimes taken for granted as an ever-present medium for growing plants. However, recently, it has come to the fore on a worldwide basis and it has been identified that soil degradation is a major problem around the world. Thus ‘World Soil Day’ has been designated by the United Nations. In the UK it is estimated that up to 3mt of soil is eroded away every year by heavy machinery compaction, over grazing and inversion cultivations. Recommendations to reduce damage and loss include changing farming practices and focusing more on conservation agriculture. The message is be aware of your soil and protect it, as it cannot be replaced easily and is crucial for your farming future. The weather has remained kind over the past month although it has become more winterlike with frosts. I think it is fair to surmise that most arable farmers are on top of their work and established crops are looking well. There has been adequate rain, often at night. Looking forward, predictions appear to suggest that long, hot and dry summers could be here to stay so growers should be prepared for this. More irrigation is likely to be required, particularly on root crops. Those without irrigation, like most cereal growers, are going to find it hard if this becomes the norm. We need new varieties of cereals that can better resist drought. I am currently involved with a problem here on the Suffolk coast concerning the England Coast Path, and I am pleased to say that the vast majority of landowners with land bordering the River Deben do not want a path all the way down both shores. However, Natural England seems hell-bent on creating this access around the river, whatever the objections. We are getting a lot of support from the CLA and the Suffolk Wildlife Trust and, hopefully, we will win our case, but national organisations seem set on their own ideas.



beat Wasps which virtually puts them out of contention. Glasgow and Saracens now head up Pool 3 having both won well on Sunday. With speculation already rife as to who might succeed Eddie Jones, there are assumptions being made that he will not be around after the World Cup. I have some faith in his ability to succeed in Japan as I think that he has a very strong group to choose from. If he does not succeed then Richard Cockerill, currently in charge of Edinburgh, is probably favourite. Finally I hope that you have all had a successful year despite the extremes of weather and I wish you all success in the year ahead.

Angus farmers learn about the business Farmers from Angus in north-east Scotland had an inside look at where McCormick tractors are engineered and built when they accompanied Liam Wylie and Andy Mitchell – who run the AL Agri dealership at Forfar – on a visit to the Argo Tractors industrial complex in northern Italy. They discovered that Argo Tractors is a major global player in the farm tractor market, producing 45–310hp machines at the headquarters factory in Fabbrico and three more plants in the surrounding area. Approximately 70 per cent by value of the tractors built there is also manufactured by Argo Tractors, including cabs, and the gears and shafts that are assembled into transmissions and front axles for many of the models. “This was our own first visit to the Argo factories and we were extremely impressed,” says Andy. “This is a big and very professional operation. The visit has given us even greater enthusiasm for supplying the tractors and reinforced our confidence in their design, features and reliability.” Apart from touring the

Machinery Mr Lee has been able to reduce the number of grading units on the farm from 10 to 5, yet at the same time has doubled output.

Grading line boosts potato productivity

Grading around 40,000t of potatoes into ambient and cold storage at PJ Lee & Sons, Highflyer Farms, Sutton Gault, demands a high output handling system which, equally, is simple to operate. Christopher Lee is responsible for the equipment in the grading lines and works with his brother Andrew, his father Richard and his uncle Trevor, in the Cambridgeshire-based farming business. Highflyer Farms grades and cleans all its potatoes into store because, in Mr Lee’s experience, cleaner potatoes in store retain their quality for longer, which simplifies the handling process coming out. “We can harvest faster in poor conditions by allowing some soil back to the store. With tractors and trailers on hand to haul this soil back to the field on the return journey, it’s effectively a free load so there’s negligible extra cost,” he explains, “and the graders can easily cope with the extra cleaning needed.” Over the past 10 years as grading and handling equipment has become more sophisticated and capacity and performance has increased, Mr Lee has been able to reduce the number of grading units on the farm from 10 to 5, yet at the same time has doubled output. “I could probably take out one more grader but I don’t want to because it’s difficult to pick up second hand kit and it gives us the cushion should we need extra capacity. We only have six weeks to harvest so having sufficient capacity means we

are not governed by the weather slowing harvesting speeds,” he says.

Cambridgeshire farmer Christopher Lee is responsible for the equipment in the grading lines.

Different sites The necessity to rent land further away from Highflyer Farms due to increased competition for good potato growing land means that a number of the grading units have to be manoeuvrable to move between sites, and possess advanced soil separation ability to cope with potatoes often grown on stronger soils. Eight years ago the business took on some silt land and in the very wet conditions the existing machines were simply not able to cope. This prompted the decision to retrofit Grimme Multi-Sep units to two of the Herbert graders. Two years later an 8ft Grimme grader with single Multi-Sep followed. It was bought on a Friday afternoon at 5pm, collected on the Saturday and set to work on the Sunday. “The impact this had on output was mind blowing!” says Mr Lee. “Our existing box fillers just couldn’t keep up with its output. Even in these poor conditions it went from 15 boxes/hr to 35 boxes/hr. Fortunately, we’d already had a box filler demo from Grimme and knew that it was more than capable of handling the extra output. “Today we have five full Grimme grading lines working,” he adds. Each line has a RH 24-60 receiving hopper with Double Multi-Sep and picking off facility. The smaller hopper means the units are light and compact enough to take them on the road between farms. Three of the grader

lines are permanently positioned in the packhouse at HighFlyer Farms. Each has two box fillers on split rear conveyors. “The Grimme grader is wider than our original grader units, giving us a much larger cleaning area,” he says. “The cleaning quality is exceptional which has also enabled us to reduce the labour required by 50 per cent. Overall this gives us much greater flexibility because even in poor lifting conditions we can still keep going. “We prefer the smaller Grimme hopper because the grader runs much faster and trailers are not stood waiting, which would have a serious knock-on effect in the field. Our output potential has now jumped to 50t/hr, equivalent to 85 boxes on a single box filler,” he says. “It requires three forklifts on each split system to keep up.”

Bulk lines On the bulk lines in store, Mr Lee runs a Grimme Quantum SL80-18 with TC80-16 store conveyors and the lines can grade up to 103t/hr in reasonable conditions. “The combination of two 80cm wide conveyors and 16.5m range conveyors with their unique airbag belt-raising mechanism, ensures gentle crop transfer from belt to belt,” explains Mr Lee. “Hydraulic steering and drive allows us to position the grader easily and combinations of any

conveyor in the range mean we can alter the position of the store loader without having to move the storage line.” The Grimme box fillers impress not just with their output but also their operating simplicity. Six sensors automate the box filling process and each unit is easy to disconnect and move about within the store. The Turbo-Clean function on the coils and the MultiSep are excellent features of the RH Combi, says Mr Lee. “At the click of a button the sizing coils can be opened or closed. What helps is the fact that we have MultiSep on all the harvesters so we are familiar with Grimme separation units, making the whole system much easier to understand and operate. “Grimme has also given careful thought to the sequential automatic control of all working components,” adds Mr Lee. “The entire Grimme grader line can be controlled from one place by one person using a hand held GBT 831 operator terminal. Our old grader arrangement did not have this facility and so, when there was a problem on the line the individual units kept running, which was potentially very dangerous. Now, in the event of a blockage or an emergency, the whole grader system cuts out in sequence. This improves operator safety, minimises damage to potatoes and avoids lengthy breakdowns.” ■

A Smart Slurry Aeration System is an effective way to manage slurry.

News A glimpse at the future of farming

The smart way forward for slurry


98 98 98 99 80 80 98

The Dairypower Smart Slurry Aeration System is a well-established, cost effective and environmentally friendly method of keeping slurry in a homogenous and stable state. It was first introduced in Ireland in the early ‘90s and is now established as a market leader with 1,000 systems operating in Ireland and around the world. A Smart Slurry Aeration System is an effective way to manage slurry, the benefits of which are significant, says Dairypower. Looking at it from a financial perspective, the introduction of oxygen into the storage tank increases the value by 50 per cent nitrogen and 70 per cent ammonia nitrogen dry matter, therefore reducing the need for chemical fertilisers and, ultimately, turning what was a problem waste

product into a valuable asset. In addition, the aeration of slurry addresses the historical safety issues associated with the existing practice of slurry agitation by eliminating the build-up of H2S. Every load has the same uniform consistency with an even distribution of slurry nutrients, says the company. This improves grass palatability, and the regrowth rate after spreading. With many systems already in the UK the number is expected to rise considerably once the ‘clean air strategy’ policy is established in January 2019, laying out guidelines for emissions from manufacturing and farms. Dairypower suggests that demand for these systems will steadily increase as more British farmers recognise the benefits of aerating their slurry smartly. ■

A new event, Farm Expo, which takes place on the 6th March 2019 at the Kent Showground, will showcase the latest developments in farming machinery and services with a look to the future of British farming. Organised by the Kent County Agricultural Society, Farm Expo will have its inaugural event in 2019 and will focus on machinery, supplies and services for the agricultural industry. The event will showcase major national and international providers of farming machinery and services and includes seminars on the industry’s trending topics. With Farm Expo taking place three weeks before the UK is scheduled to leave the European Union, the keynote speaker will be discussing the future of farms, farming and rural enterprises in Britain. Chairman of the Kent County

Agricultural Society, Kevin Attwood, said: “As a charity, the Society is committed to education and development in farming and agriculture. Farm Expo is an important event for us to hold in order to best support the local farming community. It will ensure that the latest developments in farming machinery and services, and the industry at large, are available for farmers and agricultural workers.” Farm Expo offers its visitors the latest farming equipment as well as opportunities to network with others in the industry.

Fertilisers & Spreaders

Sulky X40+ and X50+ spreader specifications include a new hydraulic disc drive.

The Axis 40.2 twin-disc spreader from Kuhn has a 42m maximum spread width.

Spreaders with a bigger hopper capacity and features to improve distribution accuracy are in demand, including plenty of trailed spreader choices for contractors and big acreage farms. Mike Williams writes. Recent developments for the X40+ and X50+ twin-disc models in Sulky’s mounted spreader range include a self-winding cover for the hopper. Offered as an option, it is hydraulically powered and controlled from the cab. Also announced in 2018 was an improved spread control deflector for working close to a field boundary. The deflector, which is operated hydraulically, closes the rate shutter on the side close to the boundary to avoid wasting fertiliser. The X40+ and X50+ models have hopper capacities up to 4,000 litres, and a special feature is the hydraulic drive to the discs which can maintain a constant rotation rate that is not affected by variations in engine speed. Sulky has one of the largest selections of trailed spreaders available, including single- and twin-axle models with capacities from 7,200–13,000 litres. Three of the models have a 50m maximum spread width when working with granules, achieved by using hydraulically operated distribution through a horizontal boom with six sections.

High specification Top models in Amazone’s mounted spreader range are the ZA-TS series with hopper capacities up to 4,200 litres and available with a high specification. Maximum spreading width is 54m, an Isobus link is standard and they have two weigh cells working with an inclinometer to monitor and maintain calibration accuracy while working at speeds up to 30kph. Hopper agitation operates electrically and includes an automatic shut-off, and the recently introduced hopper cover can be operated manually or hydraulically. Special features available on ZA-TS spreaders include an advanced border spreading control with a sharp cut-off action, and the WindControl option automatically adjusts the spread pattern to compensate for the wind strength and direction. Some of the TS features are also available on Amazone’s ZG-TS trailed spreaders. Hopper capacities are 5,500 or 8,200 litres, the maximum spread width is 54m and fertiliser flow rates up to 650-litres/min are available to provide 50ha/hr maximum work rate.

A wide choice Kuhn offers one of the biggest spreader selections with more than 20 different models and variants covering both trailed and tractor-mounted machines. Easily the largest choice is in the Axis twin disc tractor-mounted series, starting with the 2.02 models offering up to 2,300 litres hopper capacity and 36m maximum spread width, and the flagship 50.2 series models have a hopper holding up to 4,200 litres and a 50m maximum spread width. Features available in the Axis series include Kuhn’s EMC flow control technology that checks fertiliser flow rate from both outlets every second to maintain the selected spread rate. The trailed spreader options from Kuhn include three AGT models with hopper capacities up to 6,300 litres. They use pneumatic delivery to spread fertiliser through a horizontal boom up to 36m wide, a system that is said to offer improved accuracy and reduces spread variation due to wind movement. The trailed spreaders also include the Axent model, available in lime and fertiliser versions with a 9,400-litre hopper and a twin-disc spreading mechanism.

Trailed machines Trailed spreaders are a special feature in the AgriSpread range from Ireland, which is distributed by Northumberland based Dales Agri Sales Agency. The 8 trailed models spread a range of materials including lime and poultry litter as well as fertiliser, and hopper volumes level filled with fertiliser are from 3.2–22m3 with load capacities in the 5,300–19,480kg range. Spread widths are up to 26m, depending on the material. All Agri-Spread models have a stainless steel hopper, and specifications also include a roll-over hopper cover, load cells, hydraulic brakes and a special test kit for checking distribution accuracy. A sprung drawbar is included on all but the smallest capacity spreader, and a three-speed gearbox drives the spreader mechanism except on the range-topping AS130T and AS150T which are powered hydraulically. The top two models also have steerable tandem axles instead of the

Hopper capacities up to 3,650 litres are available on Teagle’s Centerliner spreaders.

single axles on the rest of the range, and the top two spreaders can be equipped for variable rate application.

British built The only company still making tractor-mounted spreaders in the UK is Teagle Machinery. Its XT models are made in Cornwall, and it also imports the Centerliner range. The XT models start with the XT20 with a 660-litre hopper and 12m maximum spread from a single disc. Twin disc spreading is provided on the XT24 and XT48 models with up to 1,350 litres capacity. Design features include hoppers made of a flexible, corrosion resistant plastic, and the twin disc spreaders have Teagle’s quadruple overlap spread pattern designed to increase distribution accuracy and reduce the risk of ‘striping’. Teagle customers needing a bigger hopper and more advanced technology can choose from the Centerliner series with capacity ranging from 1,580–3,650 litres and with up to 24m spread width. Weigh cells are available on some models, and the features list includes the EASYtronic touch-screen control unit that can be used with a GPS link and can provide automatic adjustment of the shutter opening to compensate for speed variations.

Testing times Fertiliser is a major cost item on most farms, and inaccurate spreading can have a direct impact on profit margins. Spreader & Sprayer Testing offers on-farm testing for fertiliser spreaders, crop sprayers and applicators for slug pellets and granules. Spreader testing includes measuring distribution accuracy by using test trays to detect variations across the spreading width, and it also checks factors such as tractor PTO speed. The service, run by the Foxall family in Staffordshire, operates nationally and tests more than 4,000 machines annually, with all test procedures meeting the UK’s official National Sprayer Testing Scheme requirements. The business also includes a retail sales service offering equipment linked to machine testing. The list includes kits for DIY spreader and sprayer testing, and also covers related items such as anemometers for checking wind speed and direction and an rpm meter for checking tractor PTO output speeds. In addition, the company’s Fertiliser Analysis Kits are popular, providing a range of items for checking fertiliser characteristics and quality. ■

Fertilisers & Spreaders Precision control for fertiliser spreader French manufacturer Sulky Burel has launched a new fertiliser spreader which brings precision control technology to its mid-range DX30 models. The DX30 with ECO#6 control kit achieves fertiliser savings of 8–10 per cent and reduces areas receiving under or over-application by 20 per cent, through more efficient spreading as a result of automatic GPS shut-off and six-section spreading control that minimises overlaps and optimises spread pattern says Sulky. These savings have been verified by independent eco-assessments at IRSTEA (National Institute for Environmental Science and Research) and KEREVAL (independent laboratory of engineering testing).  Automatic shutter opening/ closing is driven by GPS to avoid under or over-application at headlands, gateways and after stopping. It not only reduces fertiliser wastage, but also reduces crop lodging that results from

The Sulky DX30 with ECO#6.

premature shutter opening and overfertilisation. Automatic six-section control is managed by changing the flow rate, aligned to Sulky’s patented crescent shape spread pattern, which more closely mimics the reality of centrifugal spreading. These precision features add to standard technology on standard DX30 models, including Tribord 2D electrical border control that can be set from the cab, spread rate proportional to forward speed, automatic variable rate application by GPS, easy-to-change working width settings plus simple calibration and emptying. ECO#6 can be specified on two DX30 models, both offering spreading widths from 18–36m. The DX30 W offers a hopper capacity ranging from 900-2,700 lites and a weigh cell in stainless steel with slope sensor, which allows for automatic weighing with continuous flow rate adjustment as well as automatic rate calibration from the cab together with left/right electrical shutter control. The DX30 + W offers the same features, but with increased hopper capacity from 1,500–3,000 litres. ECO#6 incorporates Sulky’s W-Vision console and Matrix 570 GPS guidance bar terminal. Those with compatible third party guidance bars may prefer to specify just the W-Vision control kit.  The DX ECO#6 is available from Sulky Burel dealers with retail prices starting from £17,568, and on-farm prices starting from £13,000. ■

Effective replacement for soil-applied N Extensive trials throughout the 2018 growing season have shown that PolyNPlus, the new foliar nitrogen range from crop nutrition specialist BFS Fertiliser Services, is an effective replacement for soilapplied nitrogen during the later stages of the growing season, says the company. When PolyNPlus is used in a co-ordinated programme with soilapplied nitrogen, high yields can be achieved with less nitrogen. At the same time, PolyNPlus provides a breakthrough solution to the serious problem of agricultural pollution which water companies and the Government are pressing the industry to tackle. Independent on-farm testing has clearly demonstrated PolyNPlus to be a virtually 100 per cent efficient form of foliar nitrogen because it is effectively absorbed by the crop, allowing nitrogen to be translocated to the grain and improving yield, explains BFS. The latest trials, designed to ascertain how PolyNPlus can be used to achieve much greater nutrient efficiency, have also underlined the product’s important environmental benefits. PolyNPlus significantly reduces the loss of ammonia to the atmosphere and nitrate leaching into watercourses. Crucially, because it can be tank-mixed safely with many crop protection products, the number of passes that farmers need to make through a crop can be reduced. Other advantages over soil-

BFS Fertiliser Services managing director, Rosalind Platt.

applied liquid nitrogen products include a much lower risk of scorch due to the product’s low salt index. This means that PolyNPlus is safe to apply later in the growing season, assuming normal precautions are observed. BFS Fertiliser Services managing director, Rosalind Platt said: “The trial results show that farmers can use less soil-applied nitrogen as well as gaining environmental benefits. Uniquely, BFS is also able to tailor the product to add individual farmers’ specific trace element requirements.” ■


REDEFINED Unrivalled precision spreading of fertiliser up to 40m or 50m wide comes courtesy of the high output X40+ and X50+ ECONOV spreaders. Curved pattern distribution, 12-section control, variable rate treatment, and headland management saves you time and money.

Fertilisers & Spreaders

Easy and precise spreading at the touch of a button A new on-board computer has been developed for Amazone’s ZA-M twin disc spreader series. The EasySet offers simple operation of the spreader from the tractor cab. Via this operator terminal, the shutter slides can be operated electronically meaning that, on the headland, each aperture can be closed or opened at the press of a button. In wedge shaped fields, the driver can individually operate either the right or left hand side. The LED lights on the EasySet terminal indicate whether the shutter slides are open or closed. Similarly, application rate can be adjusted individually on the move to either side with the corresponding aperture size being shown on the display so, the fertiliser rate can be very easily matched to the needs of the crop during operation. The ZA-M Easy is quickly mounted on the tractor as no hydraulic services are required for the shutter slide actuation and therefore no hydraulic hoses have to be coupled, only the one cable.

If a limiter border spreading device is specified then a doubleacting spool valve is necessary. In this case the position of the limiter is indicated via an LED light in the EasySet box. The ZA-M Easy is the perfect entry in to remote spreader operation. The ZA-M fertiliser spreader series includes three basic models with 1,000-, 1,200- and 1,500-litre capacity hoppers respectively, which can be upgraded to a maximum of 3,000 litres with the aid of the relevant extensions. The slow-turning agitators provide even, gentle fertiliser flow. Working widths of 10–36m allow for a flexible application, making the ZA-M Easy twin disc spreader ideal where easy handling and reliable fertiliser application are priorities, says Amazone. ■

Fertilisers & Spreaders Numerous options for trailed spreaders Agri-Spread manufactures a range of fertiliser, lime and bulk product spreaders.

Agri-Spread International manufactures multi-purpose fertiliser, lime, manure and bulk product trailed spreaders from its facility in County Mayo, Ireland. Its range of fertiliser, lime and bulk product spreaders includes model sizes from 3-22m3, single axle to tandem axle with many options depending on the requirements of the end user.

Spreaders are offered as either direct land drive or hydraulic drive with no PTO requirement. Hydraulic control of the disc spinners and drop point adjustment give accurate spreading up to 36m depending on the type and quality of material. Customers can choose between basic control land drive, Isobus, load cells and auto GPS hydraulic

drive with compatibility to all tractors and precision farming interfaces. All Agri-Spread lime and fertiliser spreaders come as standard with user-friendly test kits and an online machine set-up and calculation app which allows continuous testing of spread patterns for different product types. 2019 will see the launch of Agri-Spread’s new automatic GPS Isobus section control for its range of spreaders. This automates three main functions including an in-house patented twin belt conveyor feed system which independently regulates the application rate of product onto the spinners. This allows automatic control of product application rates to the left and right, and is suitable for both lime and fertiliser. Secondly, independent spinner disk speed regulation automatically set by the developed section control software, adjusts the spread width and spread pattern as each of the 14 sections are turned on or off via the

GPS field guidance and virtual coverage map. Finally, both the conveyor and spinner speed control are facilitated by the GPS section control software. This software is an Isobus based system to work in markets and on Isobus-ready equipment all over the world. According to Agri-Spread, the potential fertiliser savings vary from 5–20 per cent depending on the field size, shape and obstacles in the field. Agri-Spread also manufactures a range of vertical beater spreaders for manure, muck and compost from 6–26m3 with single and tandem axle models capable of handling a wide range of manure types from semi-liquid to a well-rotted solid fractions. Dynamically balanced twin vertical beaters at the rear of the machine finely chop and distribute materials over a wide spread pattern. Options include a sprung draw-bar, load cells Isobus controller, compost/wide spread kit, mudguards, hopper extensions and commercial axles. ■

Fertiliser and spreader training is on-course BASIS has recently approved two courses offered by SCS Spreader & Sprayer Testing recently. SCS works independently with all the major fertiliser and spreader manufacturers and importers including CF Fertilisers, Yara, Amazone and Kverneland. These relationships mean the SCS team is kept up-to-date and can help with the procurement of BASIS points, says the company. Its ‘Spreaders and Fertilisers’ course is a great learning opportunity for agronomists, says Tim Kerr of Hutchinsons. “A combination of classroom theory and practical mean the day is both informative and stimulating. As part of their

Foundation training programme, all Hutchinsons new entrant agronomists attend the course prior to FACTS training. “Having a practical understanding of the importance of calibrating spreaders and tray testing is essential when it comes to advising on the best use of fertilisers.” Origin Fertilisers’ Peter Scott says that its field staff have greatly benefited from attending the SCS fertiliser spreader training course: “The training is well delivered and involves practical, hands-on tray testing that allows us to better understand the connection between our products and how they are ■ applied on farm.”

Two courses offered by SCS Spreader & Sprayer Testing are now BASIS approved.

Pattern controller improves accuracy Kuhn has launched a radar-equipped, automatic spread pattern control system for its Axis 50.2 twin-disc fertiliser spreader. The Axmat Plus concept, which was awarded a Gold Medal at Agritechnica in 2013, is now being officially launched in the UK. This novel fertiliser spread pattern controller is equipped with 54 radar sensors (27 on each spreading disc) which are arranged in a horseshoe shaped layout underneath the twin spreading discs of the Axis H 50.2 EMC+W fertiliser spreader. This use of radar technology actively scans the spreading pattern of fertiliser as it exits the spreading discs and uses intelligent software to analyse and optimise the spreading pattern in real time. If the spread pattern deviates from the ideal configuration, the Axmat Plus system automatically instructs the spreader’s fast-activating SpeedServo actuators to adjust the fertiliser drop point on the left and right spreading discs every four seconds, thereby ensuring each granule or prill of fertiliser is applied as accurately as possible. “The Axmat Plus system radically

STEEL ROLLER improves the application accuracy of fertiliser, and enables the Axis 50.2’s spreading pattern to be finetuned to compensate for varying environmental conditions and fertiliser quality and consistency,” explains Kuhn’s area sales manager for the eastern counties, Paul Gregory. “By continuously monitoring the spread pattern and controlling the left and right spreading discs independently, the Axmat Plus makes it possible to apply a wide range of fertilisers more precisely across the spreader’s full working width. This enables improved spreading precision and reduces fertiliser wastage as well as minimising the risk of fertiliser entering watercourses.” ■

Prescription fertilisers address deficiencies How many farmers really understand what their soil is telling them, and develop a fertiliser strategy to match, questions the Professional Agricultural Analysis Group (PAAG)? Data shared by the group, which represents the major agricultural sample laboratories, showed that only 29 per cent of arable soils were at target index 2 for phosphate, and 31 per cent at target index 2 for potassium. Across both the arable and the grassland sectors, only 9 per cent of samples were at target indices for both P and K. The PAAG data also shows that this percentage has been almost unchanged since 2009 and is not improving. “Each soil is unique and holds the key to finding the right fertiliser to produce high quality crops,” explains Origin Fertilisers regional sales manager Alan Thorogood. “The PAAG results show that there is a clear need for a more targeted approach to crop nutrition. Using soil analysis results enables you to adapt your nutrient inputs to maintain soil indices at target levels, and to achieve the best yields for your crop,” adds Mr Thorogood.


The sensors continuously analyse and fine-tune the fertiliser spreading pattern enabling greater spreading accuracy and less wastage.

“Selecting the correct nutrients is far more important to the soil than if the fertiliser is a complex or blended compound.” Complex compound products ranges are typically limited to 10–15 analyses with 3–4 nutrients. In most cases, this would lead to an imbalance of vital nutrients and not match crop requirements as identified by RB209. FACTS qualified advisors are more frequently recommending prescription blended fertilisers, made from a choice of up to 14 essential nutrients to address every deficiency or excess identified through broad-spectrum soil analysis. Origin Fertilisers’ Nutri-Match range of prescription fertilisers, formulated to match soil and crop nutrient requirements, has over 10,000 unique analyses and it is growing every day. Nutri-Match prescription fertilisers are made at Origin’s 12 sites across the UK, and contain a full range of nutrients. Production sites at Great Yarmouth, Immingham and Ipswich, provide local service to the eastern region. ■

Kent flock expansion required efficient, flexible transport For a Kent shepherdess looking after 300 ewes across several sites, one of the latest ATVs with user-friendly features is making the job easier. David Williams reports. Des Heathcote has farmed in Kent for more than 20 years, maintaining a commercial 50-head sheep flock on grassland at Egerton near Ashford, owned by the Heathcote family. Growing up with the flock, his daughter Harriet helped with the sheep from an early age and, when considering career options for when she left school, she decided she wanted her own commercial flock. “She’s always shown a natural instinct for sheep,” commented Des. “Even with all my years’ experience, she spots health issues before I do and they respond well to her.” Harriet enrolled on a three-year extended diploma course at Plumpton College in East Sussex to study agriculture, with practical experience gained on a large finishing unit and, later, a mixed farm with arable crops plus sheep and cattle. She left Plumpton in 2017 having won the Shepherding cup in her first year and returned home, where she now looks after the family’s sheep and from where she also offers a contract shepherding service with clients including a local 600-ewe flock.

Flock size increased The flock was increased to 300 ewes; mainly Mules and Suffolk Mules, grazed on the family’s own land with additional area rented locally. Most fields in the area are heavy Weald clay, making access tricky in the winter for anything other than an ATV. “We tend to use the pick-up when it’s dry but usually by mid-October the fields are

too wet for access,” explained Harriet. “Then we ride the ATV on the road to fields nearby, or transport them to the site in a trailer behind the pick-up, then hitch the trailer to the ATV when we get there.” With the larger flock a reliable ATV was needed and the family’s ageing machine was sent for a full service in late 2017. “It needed a lot spent on it to make it safe and serviceable and even then it wouldn’t have been up to the task,” explained Des. “We decided to replace it and looked at options available, eventually short-listing two brands which appeared suitable.”

The flock size increased in late 2017 after Harriet left Plumpton College. “She has always had a natural instinct for sheep,” explained her father Des, pictured alongside her.

Good recommendation RW Crawford was one of two local dealers asked to arrange demonstrations and the ATV specialist suggested that either the Can-Am Outlander Pro 450 or 570 would be suitable. “Our use isn’t particularly demanding and the slopes are quite gentle so we tried the 450 version for a few days. It proved easy to ride and comfortable, we liked the design and a big advantage over the other machine we tried was that the Can-Am was very slightly narrower and just about squeezed into our fencing trailer, whereas the other was too wide. “We hadn’t dealt with RW Crawford previously but neighbours had reported excellent after-sales service, so we ordered a new 450.” Asked whether a UTV with space at the back for tools and equipment had been considered, Harriet said it was discussed but that reduced rear

visibility would have been an issue when working with the fencing trailer. “For putting fences out it would be fine,” she explained. “But being wider than the trailer meant that, when winding the fence back in, we wouldn’t be able to see it from the driver’s seat and it is the winding in that requires constant vigilance and readjustment.” Power steering and extension mudguards were both options recommended by the dealer and were

added to the specification. The new ATV arrived in early 2018 and was put to work immediately. “It’s ideal for our use,” said Harriet. “It’s comfortable, there is plenty of power for everything we do and the transmission is smooth and being automatic means we just select high, low or reverse and squeeze the throttle.” Harriet is training her collie Meg and said she also likes the ATV. “She continued over...

one hand, leaving the other free for tasks such as opening gates or straightening electric fences. Our previous ATV’s heavier steering would have made that sort of situation more difficult.” Working on muddy ground, with a liberal scattering of sheep manure, the mudguard extensions have proved effective and, even when there is a strong crosswind, Harriet and Meg remain clean. The standard toolbox below the rear rack is a good size but for additional capacity a handy waterproof storage box was purchased with the ATV.

loves riding around with me and the large seat provides plenty of space for her at the rear.” Because most of the work is for short periods with lots of stopping and starting it is hard to calculate fuel consumption but Des said it seems reasonable. “We vaguely considered diesel alternatives but apart from the extra initial cost there was also the disadvantage of additional noise and vibration,” he explained.

Worthwhile options The electric power steering is proving especially worthwhile said, Harriet. “A lot of my work is very slow speed, but I can easily steer the ATV with

when the lid is open. Although Harriet is delighted with the Can-Am, she has just a few minor criticisms including the gear range selection which can be “notchy”. “Once it’s in a range it’s totally smooth and easy to control the speed, and it’s so flexible that I tend to leave it in high most of the time,” she said. “But sometimes while squeezing through a gate I have to quickly select reverse if sheep try to escape, and if the selection is notchy it takes longer to engage.” The other minor issue is the exhaust silencer which is just a few inches above the tow bar making it easy to scald her hands when hitching or unhitching trailers. A feature Des particularly likes is the dashboard screen which displays the owner’s name when the ignition is first switched on. “ATVs are vulnerable to theft but if this machine is taken and offered for sale it will be obvious that the person selling it isn’t the registered owner,” he said. “It must make it less attractive to thieves.”

Harriet enjoys lots of support and advice when she needs it. “We wanted an ATV capable of towing the fencing trailer and transporting materials in muddy conditions, and it had to be reliable and easy to use. We were on a tight budget, particularly having invested heavily to increase the flock size, and the Can-Am was competitively priced but offered everything we needed. It’s comfortable, practical and we are happy we made the right decision,” he continued. “We took the dealer’s advice regarding extras including the power steering which makes it easier and safer to ride and with RW Crawford’s back-up we have an excellent package.”

Getting established “The sheep are doing well and we hope for a good lambing in March,” concluded Des. “It’s always been a friendly industry and through the National Sheep Association and locally,

Harriet particularly likes the Can-Am storage box which attaches to the front or rear rack.

Stripe ends 22-year wait for English Winter Fair title

Stripe, a British Blue cross, claimed the Supreme Champion title for Andrew Dickinson and Lisa Powdrill.

After 22 years showing cattle at the English Winter Fair, two Derbyshire farmers have finally won their first championship. Stripe, a British Blue cross, claimed the Supreme Champion title for Andrew Dickinson and Lisa Powdrill in front of a packed crowd at the Staffordshire County Showground. The 17-month-old heifer was bred by Bainbridge Brothers of Marrick Abbey, Swaledale, and bought by Mr Dickinson – of Mackworth Village near Derby – at Leyburn market. It beat Fancy That, a Limousin cross heifer from Phil Sellers of Thorpe Tilney in Lincolnshire, which was awarded the Reserve Champion title. Mr Dickinson said: “It was my dad

who picked it out at the market. We knew she was special but to come here and beat the other fantastic cattle on show is amazing, we’re over the moon.” Another British Blue-X-Limousin, Sparks, won the Baby Beef championship for NE Slack from Cumbria while EH Pennie & Son took the National Pedigree Calf Show title back to Powys for their August 2017-born British Blue heifer Sarkley Minellie.

Entries up Entries were up by 10 per cent on last year’s event with more than 300 cattle paraded through the ring in a busy two days of judging.

A pair of home-bred Beltex ewe lambs won the sheep championship for R Hall & Son.

Organiser Staffordshire and Birmingham Agricultural Society’s chief executive Richard Williams, said: “We’ve seen exhibitors and visitors from across the UK come to experience the quality and variety of the English Winter Fair which continues to go from strength to strength.” Yorkshireman Mark Horsley continued his Winter Fair winning streak in the pig pens. The Skirpenbeck farmer won the champion single with a pure Pietrain and champion pair with a Pietrain cross. There was a reserve championship for Dorset farmer Steve Loveless who also won the pig

carcass competition. A pair of home-bred Beltex ewe lambs won the sheep championship for R Hall & Son from Cumbria who came to the show off the back of winning at AgriExpo earlier in November. Livestock farmer Michael Wynne and butcher Nick Coates team – both from Derbyshire – led to a double success in the Royal Smithfield Club rib of beef and saddle of lamb competitions. Father and son team David and Chris Timm took the lamb carcass championship back to Goole in East Yorkshire while JL White & Son caught the judge’s eye in the beef carcass category. ■

Broad-leaved weed control in grassland Dairy farmers can increase grass dry matter yield/ha by up to 15 per cent to deliver a return on investment (RoI) of up to 14:1 by introducing a weed control combination from Nufarm. Launched at Dairy-Tech, Pasture Pack controls the key weeds found in

established leys for both silage and grazing, including docks, thistles, nettles, chickweed and buttercup. The pack contains 5 litres of Thrust (2,4-D + dicamba) and 2 litres of Tandus (fluroxypyr), and is applied at a rate of 2.5-litres/ha (Thrust) and + 1-litre/ha (Tandus).

Application is from April to the end of September through a conventional sprayer and both components can also be applied via knapsack for spot treatment. A 14-day grazing interval is required. Silage and manure have been proven to remain residue free. “Pasture Pack is both very safe to grass – it does not delay grass growth or cause leaf scorch, and it is cost effective,” says Nufarm’s Brent Gibbon. “The yield benefits of weed management are not yet widely understood by growers, however a Pasture Pack application to control a 15 per cent dock infestation and applied when weeds are healthy and the leaves actively growing, can improve grass silage dry matter yield/ha to

supply enough extra energy to make 740 litres of milk and deliver a RoI of 14:1, or replace 1.3t of concentrate and achieve a 5:1 RoI. “Similarly, an application of Pasture Pack to swards with 15 per cent dock cover in grazed grass can improve yield/ha to supply sufficient energy to make 820 litres of milk – a 15:1 RoI, or replace 1.4t of concentrate – a 6:1 RoI.” Pasture Pack is available from 2019 in a 2ha pack, adds the company. ■

Farmers Guide 25 Years Ago Farmers Guide January 1994 included a preview of the forthcoming Lamma show and a report on the previous month’s Smithfield Show at Earls Court. Barry Mortimer found plenty to interest him on the tillage stands. With the increase in straw incorporation disc harrows were prominent on several stands including those of Dowdeswell, Galucho, Kverneland, Parmiter and Simba. Tim Dowdeswell had a full range of reversible ploughs at Earls Court, Kverneland exhibited an 8f semimounted model and Naud had a 7f model at the show. John Hodge found that ‘droop snoot’ tractor bonnets were in fashion, New Holland Ford introduced its latest 125hp Ford 8430 and John Deere had added new 4wd 110 and 120hp models to the 6,000 series tractor range. Valmet was still offering customers a choice of colours and Zetor, having been at Earls Court every year for the past 28 years, launched its new 84hp 6340 turbo 4wd tractor. The Lamma event, originally for showcasing farm machinery made by Lincolnshire machinery manufacturers, spread its wings in 1994 to become a national machinery show on the Lincolnshire showground. Visitor entry and parking was free and there were competitions for new products and inventions. Machines expected at the show included a Househam Imp self-propelled sprayer, Chafer trailed sprayers, BOM hydraulic linkage attachments and Gull trailers, while the Lincolnshire Machinery Ring would be

at Lamma for the first time. Machinery for sugar beet was another topic in the January 1994 Farmers Guide. Knight Sprayers which was already selling sprayers with twin-jet fluid nozzles, planned to develop a sleeve boom sprayer. A review of available beet drills included those from Stanhay Webb, Nodet, Accord Ferrag, Herriau and Kleine. The Nodet range included precision pneumatic seeders of up to 18 rows with hydraulic folding and optional microgranular and fertiliser applicators. A full page advertisement reminded readers that the 34th Doe Show would be at Ulting in Essex in early February. Attractions included working machinery demonstrations, static machinery displays and both new and used machinery bargains. For some show visitors, the highlight for the three days would be ploughing demonstrations by John Hill, the world reversible ploughing champion. On the machinery news pages, Dowdeswell had developed an antibridging device for its side discharge manure spreaders and Allman launched a new range of mounted sprayers with polyethylene tanks and boom widths from 12–24m. Prices started at £4,785. Amazone introduced a twin-disc spinner broadcaster with a 1,500-litre hopper and 28m spreading width, and Greenland announced a new big square baler with a claimed output of 10–14tph. Bures & District Agricultural Club celebrated its Golden Jubilee when members were ‘reminded of the days of petrol rationing and when farmers usually travelled with a passenger – a pig!’ ■

Henry Brown’s Vintage Diary January 26–27 Somerset – Vintage & Classic Show at the Royal Bath & West Showground featuring International tractors. HJ Pugh & Co auction on Sunday.

Nuffield tractors The Nuffield tractor took its name from William Morris, later Lord Nuffield. Launched at the 1948 Royal Show, prices for the Nuffield M started at £495 and the tricycle-wheeled Nuffield M 3 was £487.10s. The Nuffield Universal had a 4-cylinder vaporising oil engine based on a Morris Commercial side valve unit. It had electric starting, a five forward and one reverse gear box, and rear wheel track width was adjusted by sliding the wheels in or out on their axles. PTO, hydraulic linkage, two auxiliary hydraulic service points and a belt pulley were all optional extras. Sales literature pointed out that the driver was provided with the comfort of a deep-cushioned, rubber sprung seat. The Nuffield DM 4 with a 48hp Perkins P4 diesel engine, which cost just under £670, appeared in 1950. Morris Motors became part of the British Motor Corporation in 1952 and within a couple of years a new 45hp BMC Perkins diesel engine had replaced the earlier Perkins P4 and the tractor became the Nuffield 4DM. Five years later it was re-badged as the Nuffield Universal Four, its smaller brother the Universal Three with a 3-cylinder direct injection engine, was added in the same year. The Universal name was dropped in 1961 when the Universal Three and Four were superseded by the new Nuffield 342 and 460. The BMC Nuffield tractor operation became part of British Leyland and, in December 1969, the poppy red Nuffield tractors were re-badged as Leyland tractors with a new twotone blue colour scheme. Launched by Morris Motors in 1948, the 38hp Nuffield Universal was designed for rowcrop and toolbar work.

New UK commercial manager De Sangosse has appointed Philip Carpenter as a commercial manager. Philip will work alongside the established team to support the manufacturer’s portfolio of spray enhancers and nutrition products while acting as the lead role for the range of molluscicide products. Philip will take up the position in February and will work closely with Rhodri Morris, also a commercial manager, in supporting

Eastern sprayer sales responsibility the company’s distributor customers. His appointment is the fourth addition to the UK business since the start of 2017 as De Sangosse continues to record consistent growth. “Phil brings valuable commercial and technical experience to De Sangosse and will be an asset to the company and our customers as we seek to support UK agriculture through a period of great change,” commented De Sangosse managing director, David Cameron.

Management changes at Grimme UK

Left to right: Barry White, Andrew Starbuck, Patrick Graf-Grote and Donna Hall.

After leading the company to considerable success in the UK market, Grimme UK’s managing director Barry White is taking on a new role at Grimme Holding as group product manager. This will give him a greater international focus, supporting a number of the company’s subsidiaries around the world. Mr White has been an integral part of the business for over 25 years and will remain a member of the UK Board, adds the company. As a result of this, and the recent retirement of sales director Barry Baker, there will be a number of changes to the Grimme UK management team as of the 1st January 2019. Patrick Graf-Grote, who is currently responsible for the retail

and parts business, will take on the role of managing director at Grimme UK. He has been a part of the Grimme UK management team for the past year. Andrew Starbuck, who has been with Grimme UK for nine years, is promoted to sales director and, completing the management team, Donna Hall, currently company secretary, will take on the role of finance director. On Barry Baker’s retirement, the company says that he led the Grimme UK sales team over the past 12 years during a very successful period for the business. Respected for his strong relationships, customer orientated and professional manner, Grimme UK says that Barry will be missed, and wish him well in his retirement.

New chairman of AIC MD of Hutchinsons, Andrew McShane, has been elected chairman of the Agricultural Industries Confederation. In addition, four new members have been appointed to the AIC Board:

Chris Clayton of Agrovista becomes chairman of the AIC crop protection and agronomy sector; Peter Scott of Origin Fertiliser – chairman of the AIC fertiliser sector; Mark Worrell of Openfield – chairman of the AIC crop marketing sector; and Chris Guest of Gleadell Agriculture – chairman of the AIC seed sector.

Following the retirement of Andrew Howlett from Boston Crop Sprayers, Richard Dix will be responsible for the company’s sprayer sales in the eastern area of England. He is currently machinery manager at the company’s Wisbech branch and is also active in service and repairs of mainly Berthoud and

Hardi sprayers. Richard started work as a fitter for Hutchinsons’ spray machinery division before moving to Boston Crop Sprayers. With 38 years’ service, he is well known within the sprayer industry and to local farmers. With regards to Andrew Howlett’, the directors and staff at Boston Crop Sprayers say that they all wish him a long and happy retirement.

Specialist crops appointment Premium Crops has announced the appointment of Lorna Evans as company agronomist to work alongside current agronomist, Hannah Foxall. “We are very pleased to welcome Lorna to the Premium Crops team,” said managing director, Andrew Probert. “This new role is another example of the significant investment that Premium Crops is making into the development of specialist crops in the UK as we strive to enhance the yields and returns for all of our contract growers.”

A graduate of the Royal Agricultural University, where she completed her BSc in Crop Production, Lorna recently completed an MSc in Sustainable Crop Production at Warwick University. In addition to supporting high erucic acid oilseed rape (HEAR) and linseed growers with agronomic advice and field visits, Lorna will be focussing on the introduction of new innovations to the Premium Crops’ portfolio, including the use of new technology in precision farming. She will be based at the company’s office in Hambledon, Hampshire.

Sales manager for Claydon Machinery manufacturer Claydon has appointed Rob Dunk as sales manager, UK and Ireland. Rob has extensive experience in sales management and distribution development, together with a proven track record in the sale of capital equipment within the UK and Ireland, says the business. A key part of his remit will be to expand the company’s distribution network to ensure that, at a challenging time for the agricultural sector, more farming businesses benefit from the significant advantages which the Claydon System provides over traditional methods of crop

establishment. “With increasing global competition and the uncertainty surrounding Brexit, farmers are under pressure to reduce production costs and looking for ways to do that, so this is an ideal time to raise awareness of the cost, timeliness, agronomic and environmental benefits of this approach,” Rob states. “Claydon has a very loyal customer base and its products are highly regarded for their quality, performance, reliability and low ownership costs, so I will be working closely with our dealers to ensure that potential customers are fully aware of the advantages.” Rob Dunk can be contacted on 01440 820327 or email Rob.
