This time 40 years ago, the very first issue of Farmers Guide arrived free of charge at farms across East Anglia. Founder Doug Potts had risked his family home to start a monthly magazine for farmers to stay informed with the agricultural industry and to buy and sell their used machinery more efficiently. Little did he know that over the course of four decades, his 44-page periodical would not only grow to become the UK’s leading monthly farming magazine – with over 30,000 copies dispatched for every issue – but it would continue to thrive as a family-run business. So, to those who work in acres and not in hours, we thank you for your loyal readership, your enduring service to our country and our shared family values. Here are a few fond memories we would like to share with you from the past 40 years at Farmers Guide.

In the early 80s we would hire a village hall in Ipswich, along with a handful of local people. Within the day we would put magazines and inserts into an envelope and attach the address labels, ready for collection by Royal Mail. Circulation in those days was approximately 6,000.

Farmers Guide 40th anniversary

Forty Years of Power Farming Progress One of the key trends throughout the 40-year period has been the demand for more tractor power to boost output as farmers and contractors respond to rising labour costs and other pressures. The average power of new tractors sold in 1979/80 was about 75hp according to an estimate from the Agricultural Engineers Association (AEA), with about 43 per cent of the tractors producing 70hp or less and only 9 per cent in the 100hp plus category. The 2018 figures show that average power had doubled to 150.5hp, and the upward trend is predicted to continue. As well as increased engine power, tractor developments have also included a big rise in the popularity of more advanced transmissions such as CVT, powershift and shuttle gearboxes that can contribute to productivity. Other developments since 1979 include extending the popularity of fourwheel drive in the lower and medium power ranges, and there has been a big increase in the number of tractors equipped to handle front-mounted equipment to allow increased versatility in the field. Tyres and tracks have also featured prominently during the past 40 years of tractor progress. Soil compaction became an increasing concern during the 1970s and early 1980s because of the ground pressure caused by heavier tractors and bigger trailers and machinery, and demonstrations were organised in major arable farming areas to encourage the use of tyres that help reduce the ground pressure. Goodyear Terra-Tires with a low inflation pressure and a large footprint area were a popular choice in the 1980s, followed by the new generation of radial ply tyres that are now almost standard equipment on tractors used for field work. As well as reducing soil compaction, today’s farm tyres also need to cope with faster travel speeds. Tractors with a 40kph top speed capability were a rarity in the 1979, but they are now a popular option, and in 1990 the first of the new JCB Fastracs put the emphasis on transport efficiency with top speeds of around 70kph complemented by 4-wheel braking plus front and rear suspension.

Power farming has made enormous progress since the first issue of Farmers Guide arrived 40 years ago in 1979, and keeping readers informed of new tractor and machinery developments remains one of the magazine’s most important functions each month. Mike Williams writes.

Rubber tracks introduced in 1989 on the Challenger 65 tractor renewed interest in tracklayers.

Round balers have been one of the machinery success stories during the past 40 years.

Traditional benefits offered by tracklaying tractors included increased traction efficiency, reduced ground pressure and improved stability on steep ground, but sales were on a steady downward trend from the mid-1950s onwards. Reasons for the fading popularity included restrictions on road travel for traditional steel tracks, which were also slow and noisy with expensive maintenance costs. Many crawler tractors were replaced by the increasingly popular four-wheel drive models, and by the mid-1980s there was a real possibility that tracklayers would soon be an endangered species in the UK. The threat of tracklayer extinction was averted in 1989 with the UK launch of the new Caterpillar Challenger 65 tractor with steel reinforced rubber tracks. Powered by a 270hp engine, it made the traditional steel tracks virtually redundant with its road-legal 29kph top speed. Benefits offered by the rubber tracks were soon adopted to offer improved traction and reduced soil compaction for heavy self-propelled equipment including combine harvesters and many of the biggest root crop harvesters. Tractors have played a major role in the adoption of precision farming methods, but the first successful attempt to show the potential benefits

of harnessing space age technology came in 1991 when Massey Ferguson provided a yield mapping demonstration with one of its MF-40 combine harvesters. Yield mapping is now widely available on combines, using yield measurement as the crop is harvested and linking this with data from the Global Positioning Satellite or GPS network 12,000 miles away in space. Yield maps produced during the harvest can be used as a management aid to identify areas where crop yields can be increased by dealing with problems such as soil compaction or poor drainage. Since the original yield mapping demonstration, precision farming technology has been adapted for use with a wide range of equipment such as guidance systems to aid steering accuracy, automatic boom, section and nozzle control on sprayers, width control for fertiliser spreading plus headland management and control systems. The bulk handling trend was already well established on farms when the first issue of Farmers Guide arrived, and rapid development continued throughout the 1980s and 1990s. Examples include using bulk tanks instead of milk churns, combine harvesters with a bagging platform disappeared as grain tanks took over, while small bales for manually handling hay and straw were quickly replaced by big round and rectangular packages. The shrinking demand for traditional small balers is indicated by statistics from the AEA showing annual delivery figures for various machinery categories, with 3,900 new small balers bought by farmers and contractors in 1979, but only 65 were recorded for 2018. Big round baler sales increased from 650 to 1,060 over the same period, and there has also been a growth market for big square balers. One of the spin-offs from the bulk handling trend was a need for special equipment to deal with the large numbers of big bales, pallets and potato or

fruit boxes on farms. Rough-terrain forklift trucks arrived from the construction industry during the early 1970s, but they were soon joined by a new generation of telescopic loaders providing much more lift height and forward reach. JCB introduced its first Loadall model in 1977. It was called the 520 and was marketed initially as a machine for the construction industry, but JCB quickly appreciated its potential for materials handling work on farms with agricultural sales starting in 1978, and the Loadall was soon joined by a rapidly growing list of competitors. While telehandlers have taken over much of

the materials handling work on farms, front-end loaders for tractors are still important for jobs such as loading manure spreaders or transferring silage from a clamp to the mixer wagon. In spite of the telehandler success story, deliveries of front-end loaders amounted to a respectable 3,700 in 2018, down from 6,150 in 1979. There has been a much bigger reduction in the delivery figures for mouldboard ploughs, which have fallen from 3,750 in 1979 to 730 last year, with some of the reduction due to rotational instead of annual ploughing on many farms. There has also been a big increase in the average number of furrows, often allowing one

large plough to replace two smaller models. Machinery success stories such as telescopic loaders have provided good news for Britain’s farm equipment manufacturers, but the industry has also lost some prominent companies as competition for sales increased during the past 40 years. In the machinery sector Bamfords, Howard Rotavator and Ransomes all ceased trading since 1979, and prominent UK companies that have stopped tractor production include County, David Brown, Muir Hill and Marshall, while Massey Ferguson also stopped making tractors in the UK. ■

Cultivating ideas to boost weed control and crop establishment

Syngenta has been looking at the interaction between direct drilled, min-tilled and ploughed plots of winter wheat and winter and spring barley at its black-grass trials site in Barton, Cambridgeshire. The company has begun looking at how herbicide programmes could be adapted based on cultivation, soil type and drilling date, which could influence the amount of grass weed emerging. When comparing the performance of the three different cultivation methods at the trials site over the past two years, headline figures suggest that, in 2017 and 2018, direct drilled wheat plots achieved the best margin (over establishment and herbicide costs) despite in 2018 achieving the lowest yields. However, this has to be balanced with the fact that, in 2017, direct drilling returned 10,000 more black-grass seeds/m2 compared to the plough. Looking at black-grass control comparisons; in 2017 the direct drilled plots returned the worst control (91 percent), compared with the best – the plough – at 98 percent control and min-till at 92 percent (and all following pre-emergence and spring postemergence herbicide treatments). In 2018, following a preemergence of Defy + Crystal + DFF (and where untreated plots featured 460 black-grass plants/m2), the plough and direct drill achieved the

best control of 97.9 and 97.8 percent respectively, and min-till 95.5 percent control. Interestingly, where min-till in 2017 was followed by min-till in 2018, this gave the poorest control of blackgrass at 92 percent.

2019 observations With the potential loss of glyphosate looming, Syngenta is looking at how best to use residual products when drilling early. Allowing the blackgrass to emerge after drilling, then spraying a residual. Comparing this to drilling later in the season when the weather can delay spraying, leaving the growers to rely on a 'one hit opportunity'. “In an early drilling scenario we would expect to see a benefit from sequences of herbicide treatments that will prolong control over successive flushes of grass weeds,” said Syngenta field technical manager Georgina Wood. “There’s a greater chance conditions will be drier.

have been looking to assess the impact of this on pre-emergence performance using cricket covers. “The sequencing approach, to use a follow-up peri-em application around three weeks after drilling and pre-em treatment, has proven highly successful. It spreads the inherent risk of relying on just one heavily stacked pre-em application, and limits any potential for crop phyto effects.” In high weed burden situations the work had showed sequencing of actives delivered significantly better control compared to a pre-em stack alone across all establishment techniques. It has proved especially beneficial in min-till establishment systems, where weeds had continued to emerge from depth over time, she added. However, Georgina pointed out that for later drilled crops, from the end of October, growers were more likely to err on the side of a single bigger pre-em stack, since the opportunities to get back on with a peri/post-em treatment could be limited, especially on heavy land. Ultimately, moisture and a good seedbed are crucial to ensure reliable performance of residual chemistry. “The great advantage of successive years’ results on one trials site, to investigate multiple approaches to integrated grass weed control, is that we now have a huge matrix of results and practical ideas to share with growers, which they can try out on their own farms, in their own situations. “Establishment technique clearly has a significant impact on grass weed populations; it has shown growers and agronomists might need to be flexible in adopting different options to manage serious situations,” she advised. “With direct drilling, for example, the effects of crop residues have been seen to have up to 20 percent impact on herbicide performance, resulting in effects on crop yield.”

Cultivation impacts Among the many different aspects on trial at Barton, cultivation technique impacts on black-grass seed banks and emergence are a key feature and this year their effects have been monitored in Shabras winter wheat plots (drilled 25th October 2018) following winter wheat and winter barley the preceding years. The herbicide treatment across all plots included a pre-em of Defy + Crystal + DFF on the 1st November. “Where we ploughed to a depth of

20–21cm in (autumn) 2017 and then intentionally ploughed lower at 27cm in autumn 2018, everything we buried in 2017 we brought up again and, as a result, the control of black-grass was poor,” explained Georgina. “It demonstrates that ploughing is not always the answer and, if you keep ploughing, then it’s not going to work where black-grass is a problem. “If you are going to do a first plough after a long time, then go deep and, in subsequent years, cultivate shallower,” she said. Where direct drilling in 2018 followed the plough in 2017, there was little return of black-grass seed which had initially been ploughed down. Direct drilling left the seeds on the surface and black-grass control was good in both the treated plots (where the herbicide had worked well) as well as the untreated.

Min-till woes Where min-till in 2018 (to a depth of 15cm) followed the plough, it was clear that the black-grass seed bank had been stirred up again, however min-till following min-till has proved even worse, said Georgina. “What we see in this instance is a disaster in terms of black-grass management. Despite the chemistry applied, seeds are germinating from different depths throughout the top 15cm of soil, making germination time less uniform and control with chemistry more difficult. “Min-till establishes wheat well and so it’s a strategy growers have adopted – it’s robust and reliable, but that’s only half the problem. They see good crop establishment but then the black-grass comes with it,” she stressed. Where direct drilling followed min-till, the untreated plots looked similarly poor. “The herbicides have certainly worked in this scenario although the direct drill establishment is not as good as the min-till. “This is an area we need to get better at,” she added. According to Georgina, ploughing in 2018 following min-till in 2017 inverted a seedbed which had black-grass seed spread throughout its profile transferring some of the lower seed bank back up into the germination zone. If growers are looking for a ‘re-set’, they should follow a plough with a spring crop for the best opportunity to take out black-grass. “Direct drilling, when everything is left on the surface, followed by a continued over...

plough and good bury is a typical reset. The earlier you plough following a winter crop the better – working it into a good seedbed early to get the black-grass to grow, and provide an opportunity to spray it off,” she said. “No one cultivation system is the answer – it’s about knowing where the seed is in the soil profile and using the kit you’ve already got to get the job done.”

Crop competition The competitiveness of winter barley was highlighted in a visual demonstration at Barton alongside wheat and also a barren plot where no crop was planted. Bazooka hybrid barley was direct drilled last autumn and received the same base herbicide programme as the rest of the field, but increased crop competition from the hybrid barley had reduced black-grass development. “This demonstrates the strength of hybrid barley compared with wheat – it’s much more competitive against black-grass said Georgina who claimed that the extra vigour of hybrid barley in the spring is important. “The barren patch had the same herbicides but the black-grass plants are huge compared with those in the barley, so when we talk about the importance of crop competition – this is what we mean.” In terms of spring barley, she pointed out that most are growing it to reduce black-grass on their farms but if it’s planted too early (in the autumn for example), black-grass will compete, the barley will be shorter, more open and allow greater weed populations to grow. “If you are growing spring barley in a black-grass area you will be mitigating the effects of a spring crop

by planting it too early,” she said. Syngenta has also run a series of trials this year to look at how crops are drilled in more detail, particularly the subtleties of crop competition and the effects of light interception due to increased use of ‘low disturbance’ drills and wider row widths. Half of the trials area was cultivated with a one-pass Kverneland CLC cultivator prior to drilling second wheat on the 21st October last year, while the other half was direct drilled into stubble with four different makes of drill. “Where we went with direct drilling, establishment dropped off on average by 14 percent compared with the one-pass cultivated area,” explained Georgina, adding that it was “a big drop-off.” “However it’s not all about establishment,” she continued. “Ultimately it’s also about tiller numbers, ear counts and then yield, but direct drilling is an important aspect on farms and we need to find out how to do the best job with it. “So if establishment was 14 percent less, do we need more seed/ m2 to achieve the same result as the cultivated half?” she questioned. Row widths between 12.5 and 31.0cm were all included in the trial with single row (disc) and band formats as well as varying spacing of seed within the row, over a wide range of seed rates. “The advice for seed rates is potentially different based on row width but is it right to increase the seed rates on wide rows?” said Georgina. “There are positives and negatives for wider row widths; with more airflow there is the potential for less disease and better trash management, but wider rows with more plants can mean that early season light interception is not so

competing with itself at high seed rates and can’t compete against the weeds as well. “These are extremes of seed rates and we are showing that on a wide row width, just upping the seed rate is not always the answer as current advice suggests.” ■

Row width trials were a feature at Barton in 2019.

Seed treatment boost With the trend to drill winter wheat later in the season as a key strategy to tackle black-grass, Syngenta has been trialing its seed treatment Vibrance Duo (fludioxonil + sedaxane) at Barton for the past two years. “Growers are focusing on drilling later which has the potential to reduce yield and so we are looking at how best to get the crop up and away quickly, tillering and growing well in the autumn, said Georgina Wood. Approved for use in winter wheat, winter triticale, winter rye and spring oats, Vibrance Duo is the first UK seed treatment to use the company’s SDHI fungicide sedaxane, providing control of key establishment diseases, but trials have also shown that it can substantially boost early growth and root development. In autumn 2017, when crop growth was slow, no visual difference in crop establishment was seen between Vibrance Duo treated plots and those with Redigo (prothioconazole), but in spring 2018 crops treated with Vibrance Duo were getting an extra tiller per plant. “In slow growing autumns you don’t always notice the effects on treated crops until you get to the spring and then you see the difference,” explained Georgina. “In autumn 2018 however, there was a noticeable difference in treated plots much earlier” she added. “The trickier the conditions the more effect we see from Vibrance Duo. This season the percentage establishment was low in direct drilled crops – plants were under stress from a late drilling and black-grass point of view. Late drilled crops are lazy rooters and so there is a need to do what we can to get even crop establishment to maximise yield,” she concluded.

good. “Wide rows also let more light in for black-grass to germinate which can then tiller wider because of the space,” she added. “When looking at 25cm row widths, we saw very little difference in establishment between 450 and 225 seeds/m2. However, when the rate was reduced to 125 seeds/m2 there were clearly gaps down the rows and this is likely to have an impact on yield. “We also looked at high extremes of seed rates, comparing 600 and 800 seeds/m2,” continued Georgina. “It’s not just about getting the number of ears. There were notably fewer ears with 200 seeds/m2 compared with 600 seeds/m2 but a lot of the ears at the higher seed rate were smaller, and this could mean that quality is affected too. With 800 seeds/m2 plant flag leaves were much smaller than 200 seeds/m2 and it shows that we are stressing the whole crop. It is

Managing autumn spray programmes without seed protection

Farmers with wheat drilled very early into clean land, and those drilling winter barley, are likely to see the biggest increase in workloads.

2019 is the first autumn growers will tackle without neonicotinoid seed dressings to protect crops against pests, particularly aphid vectors of barley yellow dwarf virus (BYDV) and slugs. The loss of this protection is likely to affect autumn planning and workloads with consequences for other areas of crop management. Prime Agriculture agronomist Andrew Blazey (right) does not foresee radical changes to autumn workloads where farmers are already drilling later, although he says BYDV is an added concern particularly for early-drilled wheat and barley crops. Working with farmers in Cambridgeshire, Essex and Suffolk, Mr Blazey saw the difficulties caused by cabbage stem flea beetle in oilseed rape after the withdrawal of seed dressings. However, he is cautiously optimistic that the impact on cereals won’t be as significant, as long as growers are aware of the dangers and make use of all the tools available to control BYDV. This autumn, without the protection from seed treatments, farmers are likely to have to spray at least twice for aphids in earliersown crops and once in later-drilled crops depending on conditions and T-sum calculations (based on air temperature and establishment timescales). “Farmers drilling wheat very early into clean land, and those drilling winter barley, are likely to see the biggest increase in workloads. In some cases this may not be sustainable without Deter. “Most farmers with a black-grass problem are already late-drilling in October which is also an effective cultural BYDV control. Aphids

are less active in cooler weather and it takes longer to accumulate the necessary degree days before you need to apply an insecticide,” he comments. Understanding the consequences of losing seed dressings will take time but Mr Blazey says it should not distract attention from effective weed control. “The biggest thing is not to compromise herbicide timings for aphid control and vice-versa. “Pre-emergence herbicides must be applied at true pre-em timing and the same with a peri-emergence topup. The top-ups are where I see most danger of farmers compromising control by combining a herbicide and insecticide spray, but timings often have to be different to get the best results.”

Pre-em stack At pre-emergence, he opts for Liberator (flufenacet + diflufenican) plus pendimethalin or Crystal (flufenacet + pendimethalin) with some diflufenican. Where farmers can also use tri-allate at preemergence, a peri-emergence topup is not always necessary. Mr Blazey recommends applying peri-emergence top-ups to justemerged crops for best control. In contrast, a pyrethroid spray to control aphids will probably be needed a little later at around the 2-leaf stage of wheat, depending on the T-Sum calculation. Separating

herbicide and insecticide applications also maximises efficacy and crop safety. Entomologist Dr Steve Foster of Rothamsted agrees that timing and thresholds mean everything for additional sprays. “Pyrethroids are relatively cheap so there is a temptation to put them in the tank with a herbicide because you’re spraying anyway, but this is bad for resistance management. There is already some resistance to pyrethroids in grain aphid and unnecessary sprays increase the probability of it becoming more of a problem.”

Black-grass priority Lincolnshire farmer Alex Borthwick (right) is concerned about black-grass, aphids and slugs on his 880ha near Market Rasen, Lincolnshire. “The loss of Redigo Deter (prothioconazole + clothianidin) is in the back of our minds but black-grass remains at the front. I see aphid and slug pressure both having potential to cause problems depending on conditions.” This season will be about learning because he is not certain how the lack of Deter will affect crop establishment, particularly earlydrilled crops. He thinks the biggest addition to workload will be time spent walking crops and monitoring problems, not on the sprayer.

“Deter meant we didn’t really need to worry about what was happening in the field because it was protected. Now we need even better attention to detail to keep crops healthy.” Seed hollowing from slugs is a risk that he is still deciding how to manage. “We may need to do baiting before drilling to get an understanding of slug pressure. We could then increase seed rates and apply ferric phosphate pellets straight after if required.” He also expects to control slugs through ploughing which is his standard cultivation, and should result in fewer problems than in min-till systems. Currently, 30 per cent of his land goes into spring cropping with a mixture of wheat, barley, potatoes and sugar beet that is usually drilled around late February or early March; the other 70 per cent is autumnsown. Barley is drilled in late September, first wheats in early October to maximise potential, and second wheats last. In recent seasons, second wheats were not treated with Deter so he is used to going back into crops during November to treat for aphids when necessary. If timings and thresholds match, he combines this with the herbicide programme. Wheats receive a pre-emergence stack based on Liberator or Crystal followed by a residual top-up and Atlantis OD (mesosulfuron + iodosulfuron) depending on blackgrass. “We host some trials which have convinced me autumn Atlantis is worth the effort because you get much better control than spring.” ■

Trials show practical ways forward for brassica crops Hutchinsons held an early season brassica open day at Old Leake in Lincolnshire, in conjunction with the Allium & Brassica Centre. Hosted by F Daubney & Son, trials were set up to look at insecticides, nutrition, and herbicides, in addition to demonstrations highlighting ways to achieve better soil health. One of the aims of this work is to be able to offer growers practical solutions to address a shrinking crop protection toolbox, said Hutchinsons technical support for vegetables, Peter Waldock (right). He also drew attention to the challenges of effective aphid control, since the loss of Cruiser (thiamethoxam). Mr Waldock said: “One of the problems is an increased crop susceptibility to viruses such as turnip yellows virus (TuYV) and turnip mosaic virus (TuMV) which are vectored by aphids,” he said, noting that the trials have been assessing products applied with the precision applicator Phytodrip. Phytodrip treatments were still working well 37 days after treatment, and most foliar sprays had also successfully reduced aphid numbers, he observed. “We now need to better understand whether the same level of protection can be achieved when these products are used together with Verimark and Tracer against aphids,” he explained. The trial site is also a site for Brassica Alert with pheromone insect traps and spore trapping for

white blister, ringspot and light leaf spot. These along with the weather station enable more accurate pest and disease forecasting and product application.

Biostimulants Nutrition trials explored the effectiveness of biologicals and biostimulants. “We are aiming to support plant health and create an environment for the plant to maximise its own defences,” said trials agronomist Carl Sharp (right) of the Allium and Brassica Centre. All the trialled products gave encouraging results with both module and foliar treatments increasing crop button weight. Crops treated in the 2018 trials with biostimulant Bridgeway showed an increase in button weight of 17 per cent. The product is based on plant-derived amino acids and is already being successfully used in the field, he noted. Bacillus-based RhizoVital also performed well, increasing nutrient availability to plants by converting soil nutrients such as phosphate into more easily accessible forms

for uptake and resulting in higher yield. Cultigro (a mixture of bioflavonoids) and Advance 66 also resulted in yield increases.

Cover crops Growers were also able to view the benefits of last year’s work on the potential of cover cropping in a vegetable rotation. In June the site received 200mm of water in just 7 days, causing flooding in some areas. However, the impact on the soils was much less where the cover crops had been, pointed out Hutchinsons’ agronomist and farmer Rich Daubney. Two soil pits were placed less than 20m apart on the land which, prior to becoming a Hutchinsons trials site, had been used in intensive cultivation with maize, vegetables and potatoes in the rotation. As a result, the field has areas of deep compaction below the levels where machinery can reach, so only a deep rooting plant can help alleviate it. Mr Daubney said: “The ground which had been planted with a cover crop last year showed no compaction from the heavy rain, and there were a good number of vertical fissures to allow drainage and encourage rooting. “This shows the key role organic matter can play in keeping the structure open.

“The other soil pit showed signs of compaction and had virtually no fissures.”

Herbicide trials Visitors were also shown round the herbicide trials, which showed some different results from 2019. “We have had very different weather from 2018, and weed pressure has been low,” said Carl Sharp, pointing out that even the control plots were very clean. “In addition, we have noticed a difference in crop safety, with none of the herbicides causing any issues or signs of scorch or serious crop canopy reduction.”

Soils Looking to the future of good soils management, growers attending the event showed great interest in a game-changing soil mapping service recently launched to UK growers by Hutchinsons. “TerraMap revolutionises the way in which soil nutrient mapping is currently undertaken in the UK – setting a new standard for accuracy in precision agriculture,” said Hutchinsons precision technology manager, Oliver Wood. “Today’s precision farming requirements demand greater accuracy and until now, UK growers have not had access to a high definition soil scanning system.” TerraMap uses gamma-ray detection technology that delivers resolutions of over 800 points/ha, providing high definition mapping of all common nutrient properties, pH, soil texture, organic matter and CEC as well as elevation and plant available water. ■

An essential start to any black-grass programme



Gowan urges farmers to book their Avadex contractors sooner rather than later.

The use of the residual herbicide Avadex Excel 15G has increased year on year for the past eight years and demand is expected to increase once again this autumn. “This is because Avadex (triallate) applied pre-emergence is regarded as the essential start to any black-grass programme in cereals,” says Gowan country head for UK and Ireland, Dominic Lamb. “Its use in a programme along with flufenacetbased herbicide can add on average 15 per cent control of this very difficult and competitive grass weed,” he adds. To get the best from Avadex granules, it is vital that the applicator is calibrated correctly when applying 15kg/ha and that the granules are applied evenly across the boom width. “The correct amount of herbicide granule must be delivered down each pipe and a patternation test carried out along with the calibration. Black-grass is such a competitive weed that accurate and even application is essential,” says Dr Lamb. Weed expert John Cussans (right) says that the residual stack has become a mainstay of grass weed control. “But herbicide efficacy is dependent upon adequate soil moisture and not all herbicides are affected to the same extent,” he comments. “We have looked at several chemical criteria including vapour pressure and Henry’s constant (dimensionless) to help predict herbicide activity in dry soils. This information shows that flufenacet, the foundation for most pre-em programmes, is vulnerable to dry conditions, as

1-31 Sep.indd 19

is DFF. Prosulfocarb is a little less vulnerable and pendimethalin even less so. The efficacy of tri-allate is the least affected by dry conditions. If conditions are so dry that weed germination is affected, then no residual herbicide is able to give its best.”

Herbicide stack Black-grass remains the scourge of most arable farmers and together with cultural control methods, Avadex and flufenacet in the herbicide stack would be the most popular start to its control in winter wheat and winter barley, says Gowan. Avadex granules are approved for use in winter and spring wheat, winter barley and spring barley, with EAMUs for winter rye and triticale, winter and spring linseed, canary grass and Miscanthus. In a programme it adds to the overall black-grass control as well as having an effect on wild oats, rye-grass and brome species. Avadex also has some effect on key broad-leaved weeds including cleavers, charlock, chickweed, poppy, field pansy, speedwell, forgetme-not, fumitory, mayweeds and red deadnettle. Dr Lamb urges farmers to book their contractors sooner rather than later. If farmers need any help, Gowan maintains a database of contractors, listed by counties, on its website (, he says, adding that “contractors need to be sufficiently tooled up to satisfy the increased demand on their services, and they must be ready to get going this autumn.” ■

varieties was 11.22t/ha compared to treated at 12.83t/ha, that’s still a 14.35 per cent response to fungicides which equates to 1.60t/ha.” Mr Robinson took the visitors through some exciting new chemistry options for the future, pointing out that the impending loss of chlorothalonil (CTL) poses a real challenge for disease control. The plots offered a good insight into this, showing quite clearly that remaining available multi-sites such as Folpet, were not as effective as CTL. He added that further trials would look in more detail at timings and the impact on efficacy.


More than 40 growers attended a recent Farmacy trials demonstration day at Marsh Larder, Harleston in Norfolk, by kind permission of Lewis Partners. Disease pressure at the demonstration site has been far higher latterly than during the dry conditions of last spring, said agronomist Dan Robinson (right), speaking at the event. Wheat plots treated with a good robust standard fungicide and PGR programme looked healthy and full of potential, although there had been significant

septoria infection of untreated wheat plots due to unsettled weather through June. Due to the higher disease pressure he believed that yield benefits from fungicide treatments at the Harleston site were likely to significantly exceed last year. “Even in the very low disease pressure last year, the mean untreated average yield over 30 wheat

Looking at the variety demonstrations, Mr Robinson took the growers through a range of options for each sector. In the Group 1s, RGT Skyfall continues to dominate, and is the only milling wheat to offer orange wheat blossom midge (OWBM) resistance, but he pointed out that priority must be given to it at harvest as it tends to sprout. With interest around the Group 2 KWS Extase with its septoria rating of 8.1, Mr Robinson urged growers to ensure that they continued to use a sensible fungicide programme with the variety. “Its not about cutting corners with fungicides on this variety, but using the resistance as a


6% better black-grass control is worth having this autumn. Autumn

Arable risk management strategy for example where spraying may be delayed. If not, the resistance will very quickly break down.” In the Group 3s, KWS Firefly was another that had done well against septoria and yellow rust this year, so could be a potential distilling option for growers with a local market, he said. “RGT Gravity also continues to be a good choice with its high yield potential, and no major weaknesses.” Mr Robinson added a note of caution about the variety’s unsuitability for early drilling, pointing out that it was best drilled in a midOctober slot. In the all-important feed wheat sector, he highlighted LG Skyscraper as a stand-out performer so far this season. “Despite the conditions, it looked clean and stood well in our trials, so would be a really good fit for growers in this region.” Alongside high yield potential and good disease scores, Skyscraper’s position as a soft Group 4, meant it also had distilling potential, he said.

Nutrition know-how Nutrition expert Rob Jewers (right) followed on, encouraging growers to take regular tissue samples during the season. “Results from across the Farmacy demonstration sites taken in April had shown levels of nutrients such as magnesium,

potassium, zinc and boron were low.” He also underlined the value of carrying out a grain nutrient analysis. “This is a powerful indicator for nutrient levels at the end of the season, and to prepare for the next; it’s particularly useful for the nitrogen: sulphur ratio, which last year was low at the Harleston site. We also found deficiencies in phosphorus and magnesium, which we could address before the start of the season.”

Seed rate work Farmacy’s technical director Dave Howard urged growers to look more closely at their seed rates as work that had been done by the firm indicated that higher seed rates were not always the optimum. “Through the work in the Yield Enhancement Network, we know that achieving higher yields is all about having enough plants and ears per m2, and creating and maintaining that crop biomass to push for the higher yields,” he said. “However, we wanted to answer the question, if a variety is high tillering, is less seed needed for optimum plant ear counts and vice versa,” he says. Looking specifically at the impact of seed rates on varieties with different growth habits, a series of trials were established at Little Ponton in Lincolnshire. In the trial, the wheat variety LG Sundance which has a high tiller retention growth habit was compared with the more standard tillering variety, KWS Siskin.

Both varieties were drilled at 4 different rates from 150–450 seeds/m2 in 100 seeds/m2 increments, and then the green area index and ear numbers were measured. “We found that the tiller number for KWS Siskin was fairly static all the way up to 350 seeds/m2. This is most likely because as interplant competition increased, rooting was compromised and uptake of water and nutrients therefore limited –Little Ponton is a shallow light soil site. “However at 450 seeds/m2 the significant increase in plants meant that even when tillers were lost due to competition for resources it still had enough plants there to make up for it. That said it equated to the same tiller number as 350 seeds/m2 of LG Sundance. “LG Sundance responded well to higher seed rates and tiller number increased with each increase in seed rate performing best at 450 seeds/ m2 producing more ears and a greater green area index. “Interestingly, as the dry weather took hold, its genetic tillering potential came to the fore and showed very little loss of tillers between March and April by comparison to KWS Siskin. “Sites where access to water or nutrition can be challenging find it hard to support high plant populations as competition for resources outweighs plant potential. “This confirms much about what we already thought; in order to get the optimum ear counts and crop biomass, and eventually higher yields, variable seed rates cannot be calculated on soil type alone,” concluded Mr Howard. ■

Black-grass is an annual challenge and a long-term one too. Small increases in control can have big rewards. 95.5% control can keep populations stable, but an integrated weed management programme that reaches 97% control can reduce populations by over 30% in a year*1. Bayer’s Liberator is proven to deliver 6%*2 more black-grass control at pre-em. than non-Bayer formulated flufenacet and diflufenican products, which makes it the smart choice to begin reaching the very best control levels you can this season. Small steps today, big rewards tomorrow.

TuYV resistance key if drilling OSR in September Choose a variety with the right vigour profile, get your seedbed preparation right and be mindful of the growing threat of turnip yellows virus (TuYV) if you’re drilling oilseed rape into September, growers are advised. “Many producers aiming to get their oilseed rape in the ground by the end of August are now having to drill into September due to 2019’s challenging harvest conditions,” says DSV UK’s Mike Farr (right). “September drilled crops have less heat units and light available for establishment and the later you leave it, the more of a problem this becomes so vigour is a major consideration.” Hybrids generally have better early vigour but they’re not all the same, he explains. “The ideal variety for later sowing has a very strong early response to soil moisture and temperature, growing vigorously for the first 30–45 days before this drops down significantly for the winter. “Cultivations for later drilled crops should, therefore, be focused on helping the tap root develop to its optimum potential during this critical period.” Cold, waterlogged and compacted soils are where the potential problems lie with late drilling so you’ve got to take all precautions to avoid this, Mr Farr points out. “If there are soil structure issues, make sure you use a subsoiler to break any pans and choose your fields carefully. Whatever system you use, you must ensure even depth of drilling and good soil to seed contact.” “Rhizotrons developed by DSV to study how cultivation method affects root growth show a consistent 50–60 per cent increase in root mass in open, free draining soils compared with heavier or compacted soils.”

spot. With yield losses of over 20 per cent resulting from TuYV recorded in Europe, these UK results are increasingly significant. DSV’s TuYV resistant varieties Temptation, Darling and Dazzler have come out particularly well with yield advantages of up to 30 per cent over non-TuYV resistant varieties in some cases, he explains. “The RL listed variety Temptation was the outright best performer in trials at Easton

Royal in Wiltshire with a yield of 5.61t/ ha compared with the closest non TuYV resistant variety at 4.33t/ha. “Darling and Dazzler, currently on the Candidate List, also did well achieving an average of 4.95t/ha.” Importantly, such varieties often carry with them higher vigour and greater ability to cope with stress through the growing season, he adds. “There was persistent flea beetle attack during September and October at our Wiltshire trial site and it was apparent the exceptional late autumn vigour of these varieties helped plants grow through this.” ■

Resistance to TuYV is something all UK growers should now be looking seriously at, believes DSV.

After industry reforms, the sugar beet crop faces a challenge to remain competitive and tightening regulation is also limiting availability of crop protection products. Earlier this year, it was announced herbicide active desmedipham is to be withdrawn, while phenmedipham remains under threat and use rates of other key actives have been reduced. Against this backdrop, it is positive news that new ALS-inhibitor herbicide tolerant sugar beet varieties from breeder KWS will be available through Hutchinsons and Frontier for drilling next spring, with about 10,000 units up for grabs. As seed availability increases, fellow distributors Agrii and Agrovista will join the supply chain for the 2021 campaign. All seed will be sold alongside Bayer’s new herbicide product Conviso One (foramsulfuron + thiencarbazone-methyl), which was approved last March, as part of the “Conviso Smart” weed control system. There will be flexibility on how many seed units a grower can order to accommodate different seed rates, with the standard bench mark 1.2 units or 120,000 seeds/m2. However, quantities of herbicide will be controlled and correspond with the exact hectarage the seed will cover, as just 1-litre/ha

application per crop of Conviso One is permitted. Pack sizes are either 1 litre or 5 litres.

Bucking the trend This route to market bucks the trend of how conventional seed is currently supplied, with all seed primed and pelleted by seed technology specialist Germains and ordered through British Sugar. KWS will pellet all Conviso Smart seed itself ahead of sale through distribution and the firm’s sugar beet UK country manager Ben Bishop (left) said at a recent Conviso Smart press launch that the chief reason is product stewardship. Selling the package through distribution agronomy companies will ensure its use overseen by qualified distributor agronomists or independent crop advisers who order seed through distribution on behalf of their clients. This will help enforce KWS and Bayer stewardship advice across the rotation, not just through the sugar beet growing season itself. “Distribution has the right people, the right infrastructure and the right knowledge we need to ensure that Conviso Smart is successful in the UK and sustained in the long term,” added Mr Bishop.

Resistance concerns There is a concern that relying on one ALS-inhibitor product for weed control

Arable could fuel resistance, with several grass- and broad-leaved weeds already insensitive to the herbicide group. Furthermore, Conviso Smart is seen as a solution for bringing weed beet-infested land back into production, allowing growers to take out volunteers with Conviso One without harming the crop. If Conviso bolters are not controlled, an even bigger headache of herbicide tolerant weed beet may start to appear. To combat these potential pitfalls, Bayer’s senior technical agronomist Roger Bradbury said growers need to take a rotation-wide, integrated approach to weed and weed beet control. This would include diverse rotations, utilising cultivations and predrilling stale seedbeds to reduce weed pressure and using effective herbicide programmes that incorporate alternative modes of action throughout the cropping cycle. Conviso One application should be timely and targeted at small weeds and Bayer also recommends using sequences with other actives for problem weeds, while mixes or sequences with fellow ALS-inhibitor Debut (triflusulfuronmethyl) must be avoided. For bolter control, a zero-tolerance policy must be adopted, starting with selecting and drilling varieties at the right time and bolters must be removed before seed becomes viable. Finally, groundkeepers should be minimised through good harvesting practices, ploughing down trash after harvest and ex-beet fields carefully monitored for regrowth. These can be controlled in following crops where hormone herbicides such as MCPA or 2,4-D are approved for use. “Ultimately, growers will be the ones that lose out if it’s is not used responsibly and they won’t see the benefits of this technology for the long term.” He added that care will also be required around drilling and spraying operations, as farms will initially be growing a mixture of conventional and Conviso varieties. Whole fields should be dedicated to Conviso varieties to avoid spray drift into susceptible crops and drills cleaned out thoroughly between varieties to avoid cross contamination of fields. Accurate record keeping of where herbicide tolerant varieties are and thoroughly cleaning out sprayers

between Conviso and conventional crops will also be a must to avoid costly errors.

Simplified weed control While stewardship will be key to the technology’s sustainability, initially it will provide growers with a solution for weed beet and more broadly a much simpler system for weed control. Rather than applying 3–4 herbicide applications, or more, most growers will require just one hit of Conviso One, taking significant pressure off spraying operations at a busy time. It is highly active against key broadleaved weeds, including knotgrass, black bindweed and fat hen, plus increasingly problematic annual mercury and fool’s parsley. Common field speedwell is a known weakness. For grass weeds, Conviso One gives good control of annual meadow grass, wild oats, couch, volunteer wheat and blackgrass populations with no resistance to ALS herbicides. Bayer’s campaign manager for root crops, Edward Hagues (left), said sequencing with other actives such as ethofumesate and clethodim where there are “difficult” populations is advised to maximise control. “We also see very high levels of residual control when compared to the pantheon of existing residual chemistry people use in herbicide programmes,” he added.

TerraMap provides greater definition and more accurate soil maps than any other system, enabling agronomists and growers to make the most of precision technology.

Yield lag As with past introductions of novel traits, such as rhizomania resistance or beet cyst nematode (BCN) tolerance, there is a yield lag with herbicide tolerant varieties. Smart Janninka KWS is the only Conviso Smart variety on the British Beet Research Organisation (BBRO) Recommended List for 2020 with an adjusted yield of just 91.2 per cent, but variety trials are grown under a conventional weed control system. When grown using the Conviso Smart system, Mr Bishop said yield relative to Recommended List controls is much closer. The firm regularly sees an uplift of about 5 per cent from better weed control and crop safety using the dedicated herbicide in its own trials. A pipeline of varieties is already feeding through into National List trials, with Smart Rivetta KWS offering a slightly higher yield of 95.8 per cent in its second year. KWS is also bringing other traits such as BCN resistance into herbicide tolerant varieties to add to the system’s flexibility. ■

Hemp is a viable alternative Unyte Hemp is undertaking a progressive cultivation of industrial hemp this season in Leicestershire. The company says that with an urgent need for commercially viable alternative crops for the UK agricultural sector, which also reduce agrochemical inputs and CO2 outputs, hemp is the perfect option for many farmers across the UK. It has a 120-day growth cycle and can be used as an alternative to oilseed rape in a crop rotation, requiring no pesticides and very minimal fertilisers.

The seed is drilled in late April to early May and then dependent of the end use for the crop, it is harvested late August through to the end of September. The stalk can then be bailed and processed to produce two fractions; the shiv which is the woody core off the stalk and the bast fibre which is the outer fibre of the stalk. These can then be further refined for multiple end uses, bio polymers, construction materials, PLA for biodegradable plastics, insulation materials, biodiesel and even super

capacitors for fast charging batteries, says the company. Unyte Hemp is assisting the UK agricultural sector through its Hemp Exchange programme, which will guide farmers through licensing, seed selection, cultivation, harvesting and end uses for their crops. There are many other benefits to a

crop rotation, as Hemp will eradicate black-grass in one season and also break up compacted soils, allowing for a great water attenuation capacity and increased yields for following crops, concludes Unyte. â–

Pre-em rate adjustment benefits ryegrass control Investing more in the preemergence herbicide programme is key to controlling ryegrass and preventing problems spreading further, says crop protection company Syngenta. Results of this season’s trials at its Ryegrass Focus Site have shown increasing rates of Defy (prosulfocarb), from 4- to 5-litres/ ha in the pre-emergence treatment further boosted reduction of ryegrass heads by an average 36 per

cent across plots of wheat, barley and hybrid barley. Trials site manager and grass weed specialist, Andy Cunningham advocates reducing viable seed head numbers is crucial to preventing seed return and maintaining sustainable low weed populations. The higher rate of Defy, as the base treatment in a tank-mix with flufenacet, reduced head numbers on the Yorkshire trials site as low as 8/m2 in conjunction with hybrid 67343

barley, compared to over 350 heads in untreated plots of wheat and 168 heads in conventional barley. Analysis of the in-crop ryegrass had shown an average 32 seeds per head standing above the crop, equating to a return of more than 10,000 seeds/m2 in untreated wheat, but down to 220 seeds returned with the higher rate of Defy in combination with hybrid barley. A recently published survey of growers has shown over 60 per cent

of UK growers have ryegrass issues on their farms, with a third reporting the situation is getting worse. The survey showed that 64 per cent of growers do specifically select herbicide options to target ryegrass on affected areas. The results revealed preemergence herbicides were performing more effectively (56 per cent good or highly effective) compared to post-emergence treatments (32 per cent). â–

Varietal resistance evident after rain hits demo sites The value of variety resistance was in evidence at Bayer field days at Long Sutton, Lincs and Callow, Herefordshire following severe septoria pressure in June. At Long Sutton a staggering 202mm of rain was recorded in just four days from June 10th, while at Callow 124mm of rain fell in the first 3 weeks of the month. Septoria pressure jumped at both sites as a result and most plots which had not received a fungicide programme quickly succumbed, with Santiago having little green leaf area left. But Septoria also crept into the canopy of fungicidetreated plots of the most susceptible varieties. Of the 39 variety plots the 2 stand out varieties were KWS Extase and candidate DSV Theodore. They were particularly clean, even untreated plots faring reasonably well given the late septoria intensity. For NIAB TAG’s Mike Perry at Callow the two varieties were ‘game changers’. “We haven’t had a variety like KWS Extase before, where excellent septoria resistance is combined with good grain and straw characteristics. It offers a genuine opportunity to reduce fungicide inputs,” he said. It would still need a fungicide programme, he stressed, but provided greater scope for those with large wheat areas to prioritise fungicide by field risk. DSV Theodore was also particularly clean and like KWS Extase untreated plots had coped well given the intensity of late Septoria pressure. But its low specific weight is a major concern.

Promising Candidate Another promising Candidate is RGT Saki, with a good disease profile that had helped fend off the late septoria pressure. At Long Sutton, NIAB’s Clare Leaman (right) said if it could deliver yields not too far from Group 4 newcomers LG Skyscraper and LG Spotlight it had a chance of acceptance. “We know little about this variety at the moment but plots were noticeably clean and green. LG Graduate also has promising yield potential but its disease package

doesn’t look so strong.” Bayer’s Ella Crawford (left) said the value of the T1 application for keeping the top leaves clean was another ‘take home’ from both sites. “With the top two leaves being the biggest yield contributors the focus naturally falls on GS39 and protecting the flag leaf. But what these trials show is just how valuable the first lines of defence are. The T1 (GS32) plays a vital role in keeping the flag leaf clean, by restricting disease spread onto leaf two and then onto the flag leaf.” The evidence for that could be seen clearly in the T1 trial plots. Those that didn’t get an effective azole + SDHI combo at GS32 had disease in the upper canopy, despite robust T2 treatments. “Azole selection is still appropriate when it comes to septoria. The cleanest plots were those where Aviator (prothioconazole + bixafen) or Ascra (prothioconazole + bixafen + fluopyram) were used at T1. But that only became apparent when the rain arrived, before that there was little difference in treated T1 plots.” Visitors also had a preview of Bayer’s third generation development SDHI fungicide, which has the chemical brand name Iblon. Plots treated with the fungicide were exceptionally clean and green. In previous trials it had given around 10 per cent better septoria control compared with current SDHI products, and exceptional yellow and brown rust control, she noted. Approvals permitting, Bayer hopes to launch Iblon products in 2022.

Valuable weed control Emerger, Bayer’s new residual herbicide containing aclonifen, was described as giving ‘valuable control’ of a broad spectrum of weeds in the potato trial plots at Long Sutton.

KWS Extase at Long Sutton in July.

Approved earlier this year for application at 1.75-litres/ha, Emerger has been widely discussed as a suitable replacement to linuron, but according to Bayer commercial technical manager for Norfolk, Jack Hill (right), this would be to understate its potential. “It gives good control of a wide range of weeds particularly brassica and chenopodium species, this alongside its residual persistence and good tank-mix flexibility marks it out as an option growers will want to use next season,” said Mr Hill. “The active substance is absorbed strongly onto soil particles and has low water solubility making it virtually immobile in soil and therefore low risk to groundwater. As the weed emerges its hypocotyl (broad-leaved weeds) or coleoptile (grasses) picks up the herbicide as it grows through the product film on the soil surface.”

For best results it should be applied to a fine seedbed. “It needs to be applied uniformly to an even, friable seedbed to form a consistent film and the soil should not be worked after application as incorporation will reduce its activity as there is little uptake by roots.” It gives consistent performance levels as it is relatively less affected by soil moisture or light exposure than other residuals, leading Mr Hill to describe it as “a strong residual herbicide that will be the cornerstone of many potato herbicide programmes next year”. “In practice Emerger is ‘moderately persistent’ providing between twoand three-months’ activity. It has given good control in programmes with several tank-mix partners, but its best performance has been when applied in combination with Artist (flufenacet + metribuzin),” he added. ■

Taking the uncertainty out of slug control A grey slug attacking a young oilseed rape plant.

With the uncertain future of metaldehyde, UK growers face the very real prospect of reduced field slug control across a range of arable crops. However, with the introduction of new technology using ferric phosphate, growers have been pleased with the results they have achieved, which have equalled or in some cases even surpassed, some of the metaldehyde preparations. For Agrovista’s northern technical manager Chris Martin, and a team operating across a whole spectrum

of soil types and cropping, this meant that the new products fit nicely into its existing programmes. “Because the new ferric phosphate products had no buffer zone, this meant an instant fit for headland management against watercourses and with such encouraging results, quite often growers would prefer to keep on ferric phosphate for the whole field, rather than change products and incur more down time,” he explains. Using the premium brand from De Sangosse (Ferrimax Pro – containing

24.2g/kg ferric phosphate), gave Mr Martin a highly durable, spreadable and effective alternative, which at an optimum 40 baiting points/m2 gave similar control and better spreadability over some of the mini-type pellets which although cheaper, often proved a false economy. Palatability of the brand is good too with strategic baiting points providing a good snapshot of any problems. Mr Martin is quick to point out that he has been impressed by the persistence and durability of ferric phosphate and although the kill is not as visible, because the slugs migrate below the ground to die, careful rebating and monitoring of crop recovery can indicate that good results have been achieved. He also advises that as many cultural control techniques are employed as possible during crop establishment, in the overall programme. “It’s very much a case of good post harvest management,” he continues. “Getting rid of any green bridge, monitoring drilling depth, ensuring seedbeds aren’t too cloddy and getting them consolidated to restrict slug activity, are all an essential part of the overall strategy. “Application is another area which deserves more attention to detail and is often where growers can slip up even if they’re using a premium brand. Personally, I would never spread at anything more than 12m,” he explains. “An 8–12m spread width is ideal and ensures as accurate as possible product placement. On many single disc applicators, the product is often distributed roughly 60/40 in favour of one side. This weighting of course can mean exaggerated application and product loss at greater distances.

“The other main reason for poor application is not having the spreader calibrated properly. As with a sprayer, proper calibration is essential for accuracy – if not the efficacy is instantly compromised and automatically profit can be reduced,” he advises. “Worn mechanical parts too can affect the spread pattern and it’s always advisable to check machinery during the season and replace anything that is below standard.”

Perfect storm Looking at harvest, Mr Martin points out that with heavy rainfall, many cereal crops were laid, making harvest slow and difficult and provided slug populations with the perfect microclimate under the laid straw in which to multiply and thrive. “It’s literally the perfect storm,” he explains. “Wet straw and soil coupled with high humidity and temperature could in the presence of decaying plant material, mean that already high slug numbers have an even better chance of ruining the establishment of the following rape crop. Already we have seen large numbers of slugs on the combine table and that’s never a good sign.” Although autumn conditions could be testing for his growers, Mr Martin is still confident that his team can use ferric phosphate efficiency and accurately to keep crop damage to a minimum. “What I would say though, is stick to using the premium ferric phosphate brands to get the best possible pellet distribution,” he explains. “Other, cheaper versions have now been introduced to the market and just like with minis, you get what you pay for. The last thing any grower wants to do is to use a fire brigade treatment to correct a problem that could have been avoided in the first place.” ■ 67327

Combine launch

Performance fit for the future The launch of new Lexion combines has been described as the company’s biggest event in 25 years by Claas representatives following 10 years of development and testing, including in the UK. David Williams reports.

Claas Lexion joined the line-up in 1995 providing harvesting solutions for large arable farms but in recent years the separation and cleaning system, aided by increased automation, had reached its limit in terms of potential throughput. Now, new second-generation models have been designed from the ground up to handle all crops and conditions with two thirds of components different from its predecessor.

New threshing and cleaning Seven hybrid models share the new Synflow threshing and cleaning system and it is this that contributes most to increased capacity over previous models. Lexion APS Synflow replaces the previous APS threshing system and is designed to separate two-thirds of the grain, leaving only 30 per cent to be removed by the Roto Plus secondary threshing system. Threshing drum diameter is 755mm - up from 600mm on the previous flagship Lexion 780, and the drum has 10 rasp bars up from 8 before. The new range includes 3 wide-body models with 1,700mm wide drums whereas the 4 narrowbody versions each have 1,420mm wide drums. The new feed drum is 57 per cent larger than before

at 600mm diameter. Increased drum size means the rasp bars travel faster at similar rpm, so the new drum typically operates at only 550rpm, down from 750rpm. Whereas the previous drum had a set operating speed range between 450–1,050rpm the new drum has infinite speed adjustment through the Cebis display from 330–930rpm, synchronised with the accelerator and feed drums. Larger potential threshing area makes it easier to adjust performance to suit the crop and conditions and the concave flaps can be engaged hydraulically from the cab to increase or reduce the working area. The wider drum means shallower concave wrap and with all the Synflow units in a straight line the crop's direct flow improves efficiency reducing power and fuel use, and also protects the straw, improves grain quality and increases throughput. All four drums adjust in parallel for threshing clearance and speed of operation, from the accelerator drum through the main threshing drum to the separator drum and impeller. A clever feature to increase

At the heart of the new models is the all-new APS Synflow threshing and cleaning unit.

threshing performance in difficult crops is a pivoting concave bar that can be engaged and disengaged through the Cebis screen. This increases the amount of drum wrap and disturbs the crop flow to increase aggression. For maximum performance in a wide range of grain sizes nearly half the concave segments can be pulled out and swapped through the side panels, allowing multiple combinations. A larger feed drum ensures smooth but positive transfer of crop to the Roto Plus secondary separation system and a longer ‘nose’ between the twin rotors divides crop flow. The rotors operate at a flatter angle for increased throughput and reduced

straw damage and the rotor concaves are redesigned with the number of cover plates increased for improved separation and reduced losses with a wide range of adjustment available. The Jetstream cleaning system works with six to eight fans depending on the model and a dual ventilated step performs intensive pre-cleaning. The sieves and fan are adjusted from the cab and with optional 4d cleaning slope compensation up to 20 per cent is available.

Huge capacity Grain tanks up to 18,000 litres can be specified for the biggest 8900 model and unloading rates up to 180 litres/ sec are standard. Drive to the auger is through a new transmission with clutches to engage and disengage drive. The unloading auger is fed by a tank cross-auger which automatically stops before the main tube auger, allowing total emptying and reduced grain loss when the tube returns to transport position. The operator can reduce the unloading rate by half at the touch of a button for added control. The auger pivots by 105 degrees from the transport position

bringing the discharge point level with the operator making it easier to watch the trailer. Yield monitoring is by Quantimeter which takes its information from a pressure cell rather than volumetric measurement used previously. Claas says this is far more accurate and calibration is only

needed once each year for each crop.

Improved cab All Lexion hybrids have a new cab with more ‘shoulder’ space provided by a curved rear section and a much larger grain tank window making it easier to check the contents and fill level at a glance. Noise levels are

significantly lower. Controls are new, based on a new Cebis terminal display introduced on smaller Tucano models last year. The Cmotion multi-function joystick is the main control with increased ease of use including a new 'favourites' management system. As on the Tucano, settings adjustments can be made in three ways – either direct on the touch-screen, by rotary pushswitch or using physical switches on the armrest which open a dialogue box on the Cebis display to show the function selected and range of adjustment. An active coolbox is standard allowing food and drink at ambient temperature to be quickly chilled. Automatic steering options include RTK and Field Scanner - an improved version of Laser Pilot which includes technology designed by Audi for its cars. Rather than cameras mounted at the ends of the header to follow the crop edge, a single camera is mounted centrally on the cab above the windscreen. This can identify

crops above 10cm height even in high dust conditions, and can distinguish between tramlines and the crop edge. It requires no calibration, has a vision arc of 145 degrees, and can follow crop edges on the left or right, or tramlines making it ideal for CTF farming systems. Power is from 408hp to 790hp from Mercedes-Benz and MAN engines, the new flagship Lexion 8900 having 150hp more from its 16.2-litre MAN power unit than the previous top-of-the-range Lexion 780. Dynamic Power automatically adjusts the power to match the load, saving up to 10 per cent fuel through selection of one of 10 performance curves. Dynamic Cooling, available previously as an option, is standard now across the Lexion Hybrid line-up creating only as much air flow as necessary for the working conditions and drawing clean air from above to keep the engine area clear of dust. The extra power over previous Lexions meant a new power transmission system was needed and the single belt drive concept which has proved successful on Jaguar forage harvesters is used. Drive engagement is by belt tensioning and clutches which is gentler on continued over...

components than mechanical clutch drive. Terra Tracs are an option, with full suspension in their latest form and drive tyres up to 2.15m diameter can be fitted with 1.75m diameter at the rear. A differential lock is an option on wheeled models. Travel speeds up to 40kph are now standard across the range.

New headers Headers up to 13.8m are available - up from 12.5m in Vario-, and new Convio Draper-type. The Convio comes in 5 working widths from 7.7–13.8m and there are 2 options; Convio which is rigid and Convio Flex with a flexible cutterbar ideal for short crops such as peas and herbage seed. Convio Flex has a flexible knife and cutterbar and the side belts also flex with the knife bar over a range of 225mm from 90mm upwards and 135mm down. Both the Convio and Convio Flex headers have Auto Contour with base-mounted sensors to monitor height above ground for accurate contour following. Working ground pressure is adjustable through Active Float. Convio Flex has four operating modes including; Cereal – rigid cutterbar table and knife. Laid Crop – knife bar remains rigid but can be changed to flexible at the touch of a button on the move. Manual Flex – the knife bar uses information from sensors to monitor ground contours but exerts no pressure. Auto Flex – sensor information is used to determine best working position for crop flow and contour following while maintaining minimum cutting height. Both versions have a new reel with an adjustable cam-track allowing the rake angle to be optimised for

conditions. A flip-over feature aids crop transfer to the Draper belts. The reel is hydraulic driven with built-in toque control and automatic height control to prevent the rakes striking the ground. Automatic belt speed is also included allowing crop delivery to the intake to match the working speed. The side belts can be reversed at the touch of a button.

Coming later At the event pre-production smaller Lexion straw walker models were also demonstrated with new Synflow Walker threshing units, completing the line-up. The six straw walker models with power from 313hp will be available from 2022.

Avero updates The latest Avero 240 has a new Cummins 6.7-litre power unit allowing it to meet Stage 5 emissions regulations. The new engine develops 213hp, up from 205hp previously. The Avero uses the longestablished Claas APS threshing system which separates up to 30 per cent of the crop in the pre-concave and increases overall output by 20 per cent for the same amount of diesel used. Four straw walkers with four steps provide effective grain separation and a 5,600-litre tank which unloads in under 2 minutes ensures high productivity. A 3d cleaning system is an option with dynamic side-slope levelling. The new model also has an unloading auger suitable for modern high-sided trailers. Standard Claas cutterbars from the Cerio and Vario range can be attached - Vario offering quick crop changeover between oilseed rape and other cereals.

Suffolk-based JD & RJ Baker Farms grows 650ha of combinable crops and relies on a Claas narrow-body Lexion 7700 Terra Trac to bring in the harvest with excellent support from local dealer Manns.

the chamber has 16 rollers, driven from both ends. Ribbed roller profile ensures good bale traction in damp working conditions. The rotor, main drive and tailgate rollers are all driven by one inch chains lubricated by a central grease system. Bale density is controlled by the tailgate rams with up to 150bar available. MPS2 is an option through which three of the rollers are mounted on a separate frame and pivot into the chamber for early bale engagement improving formation and maximising density. Rotocut chopping and Rotofeed feed rotors as well as a variant with a feeder rake are options. Crop pick-up is by a 2.1m reel and a crop guard is an

option. Two lateral feed augers provide positive feed to the intake rotor. Net or twine wrapping can be used with no tools needed to swap.

Lexion users’ views There are only 220 Lexion APS Synflow Hybrid combines working world-wide this harvest of which 18 are in the UK. Farmers Guide spent time with users of a narrow-body 7700 and a widebody 8800 to find out if they live up to Claas’ hype.

 Experienced operator Simon Farrow says the new cab is quiet and spacious with excellent visibility, apart from where the right window view is partially obscured by the display mounting bar.  Simon believes the new Lexion's potential capacity is way above the previous Lexion 760.

oilseed rape, and winter wheat and occasionally beans as well as sugar beet across 5 sites – each with its own rotation. The land is a mix of soil types and farmer Bill Baker is keen to move towards controlled traffic farming to protect soils from compaction, with field operations matching tramline spacings where possible. “Other than for a short period when we tried another brand, for 45 years we have run Claas combines and every time we update to a new model it’s a step up from the one it replaces,” he explained. “Our Lexion 760 was bought

as a pre-production machine and it worked seven faultless harvests - that’s the beauty of Claas - they don’t miss a beat, and when we were offered the new model as a pre-series we jumped at the opportunity.” Bill said it isn’t just having the right

machine that creates a successful harvest, but having a fantastic operator in the seat helps too. “We also have great back-up from our dealer Manns through sales director Paul Moss and area sales manager Mike Chinnery as well as Adam Haylock at Claas UK, and we believe allowing the Manns workshop team to give the combine a full and thorough service every winter contributes to the reliability and performance we enjoy.” Before Bill bought the narrowbody 760, the farm operated a widebody Lexion 580. “We have to make the most of harvesting opportunities and I was worried moving to a smaller machine. We do a lot of road work and the narrower combine is easier to move around but it was a difficult decision although as soon as we started harvesting I knew I needn’t have worried about output at all. The 760 did everything we needed and was in fact a step up in capacity from the previous 580.” Regarding the new Lexion 7700 APS Synflow Hybrid, (badged currently as a Lexion 760), Bill said the 10.8m header chosen to replace the previous 10.5m would help compliance with the farm’s 32m CTF system. “I’m very impressed. Everything is beefed up and the cleanliness of the oilseed rape sample is staggering.

Some of the barley we harvested was quite green but on checking the swath there was nothing left so obviously the new threshing system is improved over the previous version. The chop quality is excellent too and the unloading rate is almost scary.” Trimble-based RTK is used across the farm and Bill commented that an advantage of the new model coming autosteer-ready was the easy set-up. “We also use NextSwath which optimises headland turns so running with the RTK guidance suits us,” he explained. Bill said he had no fears regarding reliability of the pre-series model. “We have only harvested a small acreage of barley plus the oilseed rape so far and the proof in terms of its performance will be how it gets on in wheat. We had a few very minor teething issues where software updates were needed but we know if anything major needs doing there is always a back-up combine available from Manns. “We used to update the combine every five years and, although Claas resale values mean cost of ownership is reasonably low, it makes sense to run them a little longer provided they remain reliable.” This year was main operator Simon Farrow’s 20th harvest for the Baker family and although when he arrived another brand of combine was in use,

The Bakers are moving towards CTF and the new 10.8m header allows overlap for the farm’s 32m tramline spacing.

The improved unloading auger with 105 degrees of travel means it can unload in line with the cab steps, making it easier to avoid spillages and efficiently load trailers.

he can’t fault the succession of Claas machines he has had since. “My first Claas was a Lexion 480 and the rotary separation was a revelation. We had taken on extra land that year and were under pressure but the increased work rate amazed us all,” he said. After the 480 came a 580-plus, then the 760 followed by the latest machine which arrived in mid-July. One feature not specified by the Bakers was Cemos Auto which constantly monitors performance and adjusts to match a priority set by the user. “I enjoy getting the best out of the machine and the new model provides plenty of scope to adjust most of the threshing and cleaning system from the seat to suit the conditions. But, having tried Cemos Auto on a Lexion 770 we were lent a few weeks ago while waiting for our new combine was interesting. It’s certainly not a gimmick and I can see the benefits, particularly for someone with less experience or at the end of a long working day. But what particularly impressed me was the grain quality camera. Seeing the image on the screen so clearly made it easier to check the sample than through the grain elevator and it was almost worth having Cemos Auto just for that. It was interesting watching how it tried to make improvements including some changes I wouldn’t have considered until later in the process, and it achieved a good sample with minimal losses. I could be tempted to ask for it on my next combine.” “What is much better on our new Lexion is the ease of set-up through the touch-screen,” he continued. “It’s so easy to use even with little experience and just touching on the section to be adjusted opens up a more detailed screen displaying current settings and adjustment available – you are straight where you want to be in seconds and if the ground is uneven making it harder

32-61 Sep.indd 37

to accurately touch the screen where needed then the physical switches and dial are foolproof.” Simon said the new cab is quieter with more usable space. “There is never enough room in a combine cab but the new shape provides additional space behind the seat and although I am not particularly tall I prefer the improved driving position with a larger gap between me and the windscreen.” Everything is more comfortable, he added; “Engaging drive is smoother now and must be better for the components. Previously the combine slowed when the threshing system was engaged as the engine speed was pulled down, but now it’s gentler and travel speed remains fairly constant impressive considering the threshing and separation system is that much larger. “Engaging the unloading auger is smoother too and I like that the cross auger can be stopped to reduce the flow if needed, and that the supply to the auger stops before the auger leaving it empty. We have a 13,500-litre tank on our machine which I usually unload at threequarters full and that takes under a minute.” Asked whether the new model achieves similar workrates to the Lexion 770 lent by Manns, Simon said with different width headers it is hard to compare but he believes the new model is more capable. “It’s obvious the new engine has more power and torque. Typical engine operating speed is approximately 1,800rpm threshing 25t/hr of oilseed rape when 70 per cent of available engine power is being used and even as the crop varies the engine speed remains constant.” The new combine transmission also comes in for praise. “Previously moving between fields meant continued over...

Combine launch selecting transport range to achieve a sensible speed but the new system is more flexible including a higher maximum speed in the low range. That saves time moving between working areas, even in the same field,” he said. Also having an immediate benefit on efficiency is the improved steering lock. “Manoeuvrability is much better and although I work in lands on larger fields we have smaller areas where it works better turning back on myself. With the previous combine a larger headland was needed but the new combine makes it easier.” Simon said automatic speed regulation through cruise control is better too. “More progressive, less lurching and much more userfriendly.”

now it is blown clear by the clean air drawn from above.” Simon believes the new Claas Lexion is the best so far but still has a few suggestions for improvement. “The right hand cab window has a bar across which prevents the operator seeing the end of the header which is an issue, especially when working against a hedge the first time around the field,” he said. “I realise it’s to allow the guidance screen to be positioned wherever the operator prefers but we might alter it this winter to improve the vision. The foot brake pedal had been replaced by a dashboardmounted switch on the last few Lexions we had, but it has returned on the latest version. It’s awkward to use and less convenient although I realise it’s probably to comply with new regulations,” he concluded.

Cool and clean

Large Lincolnshire farm

Simon is meticulous about daily maintenance and cleaning and said new Dynamic Cooling is very effective. “I clear dust and chaff every day and the new cooling system with the redesigned engine bay means there is little build up. On windy days previously you could see the dust blow across and become sucked against the side of the combine but

Shaun Needham, combine operator for Barton Farms, remembers clearly using a Claas Matador combine 35 years ago, since when he has used Claas almost exclusively apart from a brief period with another brand. “We ran two combines for many years including when we moved back to Claas but when the Lexion 580 rotary came out we realised we could

complete our harvest with just one machine, especially with the back-up of our local Claas main dealer,” he said. “Now we update every four years and the service from Claas Eastern is brilliant.” Combinable crops total approximately 1,750ha including oilseed rape, spring barley, winter barley, spring oats, winter wheat and in the past has also included peas, beans and linseed too. “There is a lot to get through but we achieve high work rates and do what we can to minimise downtime. Last year the Lexion 780 worked 300 hours and we expected to average

60ha of wheat cut per day.” The farm has an established 12m CTF system and the new wide-body Lexion 8800 APS Synflow Hybrid combine is fitted with a 12.3m header. A grain chaser transports harvested crop to waiting trailers on the headland. “We see time waiting for trailers in the field as a complete waste of potential harvesting opportunity and act quickly to pull in additional grain trailers before things back up,” he explained, “and the incredible unloading rate helps minimise time spent running alongside the combine.” The Lexion 8800 is powered by

A CTF regime has been in place at Lincs-based Barton Farms where the new wide-body Lexion 8800 has replaced the farm’s previous Lexion 780 and will harvest more than 1,750ha of mixed cropping this harvest, backed up by main dealer Claas Eastern. A grain chaser wagon behind an articulated tractor means road-going trailers are kept off the fields.

All-around improvement

Operator Shaun Needham says the new cab is a big improvement over the previous combine with much lower noise levels and a better ride due to the new tracks.

Cemos Auto allows the operator to select the crop and a priority (grain quality/ work rate/cleanliness of sample) and the combine will constantly optimise settings throughout the day. Shaun says he will give the system a chance to prove itself this harvest and sees benefits for the automation, but as Barton Farm’s combine features near the top of the Claas performance league table every year, he believes it will assist rather than replace him in deciding appropriate settings.

The cab comes in for considerable praise for its extra space and comfort and reduced noise levels compared to the previous version. “The large grain tank window makes it easier to see what’s in the tank without turning right around. The new controls are excellent and the ease with which adjustments are made is a great improvement. I like the new armrestmounted controls and everything is well positioned making it more comfortable to use than the previous model.” Shaun said one of the biggest improvements is visibility during unloading with the new auger pivoting further forward in line with the operator. “When we first used the chaser wagon we tried to instruct the tractor driver where to position the trailer by radio, but quickly worked out that with the view from the combine seat it was easier for the combine driver to adjust the position while the tractor maintained a constant speed, and

maintained its position centrally on the CTF tramlines. This meant leaning forward and looking back over my left shoulder, which was uncomfortable and it is much easier now with the trailer filling visible at a glance.” The unloading auger is quieter too. “The previous chain drive could be heard particularly during start-up each time, but this is practically silent and the first few times I used it I wasn’t sure it had engaged until the grain poured out.” Another improvement is the new combine’s dust suppression system. “It’s been a dry oilseed rape harvesting season and the difference the fan makes drawing air and dust in from the header through the intake and blowing it through to the rear is quite noticeable. Oilseed rape husks which fly up as the crop enters the intake elevator hover over the auger then are sucked in to the crop intake. This obviously reduces losses but also reduces dust making it easier to see what is happening, especially at night.“

process, and Shaun believes it will help maintain grain quality and outputs, particularly in complex situations. “I enjoy the challenge of getting the best from the machine but will give it a chance to prove itself,” he said. “Our previous combine had an earlier version which made suggestions for the operator to accept or reject, but the new version is fully automatic. The biggest benefit so

far was when I was opening up the field at the headland. I set it to full auto leaving me to concentrate on the header, and it did a good job. In fact whether I have made all the adjustments myself or let it control everything automatically the oilseed rape sample has been fabulous; the best we have ever seen, and losses are negligible.” The farm uses its own RTK system for guidance and Claas telematics continuously transfer information regarding each task to the farm office. “It’s useful as when conditions are variable or after changing fields, a decision can be made regarding how to handle the incoming crop long before it reaches the store.” The farm’s previous combine had tracks but Shaun said the latest version with improved suspension gives a noticeably better ride. Daily maintenance is reduced with just two daily grease points and Shaun said the new Dynamic Cooling system is reducing dust and chaff

build-up around the engine bay. Shaun commented that minor dislikes include the display mounting bar across the right cab window which blocks the view of the right-hand divider, and he dislikes the return of the foot brake pedal. Another issue, especially at night, is the bright red light at the top of the unloading auger which can dazzle the operator.

“I’m very impressed with the combine and its new features are useful and will aid productivity,” he concluded. “The cab is spacious, quiet and comfortable, its output is incredible and the grain sample is the best we have seen on the farm while losses remain minimal. I’m enjoying using it and know that if any back-up is needed I can rely on Claas and the team at Claas Eastern.” ■

The working highlight at the Kuhn press event was the Kuhn Vari-Master L reversible plough equipped with Smart Ploughing technology.

New and updated models for all sizes and types of farm Ahead of Agritechnica later this year, Kuhn has displayed its 2020 product line-up to agricultural press at its test farm in France. David Williams was there. Last year Kuhn celebrated 190 years of trading, but in the past 19 years since 2000 the company’s workforce has grown from 2,041 to 5,300+ employees while production sites have increased from 4 to 11, supplying 100 countries. Between 8–10 per cent of revenue is invested in research and development every year, with E47M spent in 2018, and the range now includes 1,500 base models with 40 per cent of the 60,000 machines produced annually built to configurations specified by customers. The launch event included approximately 30 new models from all product areas, many of which were shown for the first time and others which had been displayed at the French Sima show earlier this year.

Cultivations and drilling Kuhn’s Smart Ploughing concept with control through Isobus is available for Vari-Master L mounted ploughs, making it easier to set-up and adjust the plough from the cab. But it also offers additional advantages -

including its Smart Line function which ensures uniform ploughing regardless of irregularities in the field and corrects curves for improved efficiency and furrow matching. However the function which has created most interest since it was announced is Smart Lift – which lifts and lowers each body individually as it passes the headland line. The main advantage is neater matching where the headland meets the main field area with reduced unploughed ‘triangles’ on the ‘ins’ and ‘outs’ which are an issue where conventional bodies lift and lower as a rigid set. When the headland is ploughed at 90 degrees to the main furrows, ploughing across the triangles means some land is double-ploughed. This not only wastes fuel and plough metal, but also means trash is returned to the surface creating opportunities for weed growth, especially where black-grass is an issue. Kuhn’s Smart Lift uses GPS guidance to precisely locate the headland line and as each section

is lifted and lowered exactly where needed, the result is a tidier working edge. Another benefit of the individual plough body activation is that any number of furrows can be selected for work, so the working width can be set to precisely suit the remaining unploughed area, when completing headland work for example. The system also provides flexibility for working steep slopes where an asymmetric mode allows different numbers of furrows to be selected up and down hill. The Kuhn event was the first time the plough has been shown working and the advantages of the Smart Ploughing technology were obvious. Smart Ploughing models will be available in limited numbers this season in pre-series versions.

Optimer L updates Large 9m and 12m versions of Kuhn’s Optimer L cultivators have been added to the line-up catering for demand for higher work rates.

The electronics are more complex but mechanical furrow activation is simple, relying on gravity when the plough is turned over to latch the upper or lower pivot points.

The Optimer has 510mm discs with large or small cut-outs and mounted on rubber blocks. For transport the cultivator folds to 3m wide and remains under 4m tall, and EU homologation allows travel speeds up to 40kph. Steady Control ground tracking is exclusive to Kuhn and each chassis section can move independently for ground contour following. Hydraulic adjustment maintains sufficient disc ground pressure for penetration and depth across the full working width remains constant. During headland turns, weight is transferred to the continued over...

depth wheels and rear packer, rather than the central transport wheels. Under body clearance of 55cm is said to be the highest on the market making it ideal for high trash volumes. Depth adjustment is hydraulically assisted. Kuhn suggests work rates up to 18ha/hr can be achieved at 15kph by the new Optimer cultivators, making them ideal for stale seedbed creation.

Prolander R New folding, mounted versions of Prolander R vibrating tine cultivators have been announced. The 100 R series has 4 tine rows and is available in 4, 5 and 6m working widths and suitable for tractors between 100–210hp. S-shaped 70x12mm vibrating tines ensure good mixing and create a fine

tilth making the Prolander ideal for stale seedbed creation. Tine spacing is 15cm and a duck’s foot tine option will loosen weeds across the working width at just 3–7cm, whereas a straight tine is for deeper 5–12cm cultivation. Levelling tines behind the main cultivation elements leave the surface level. Under body clearance is 60cm. As well as the low power requirement, suitability for use with smaller tractors includes much of the weight well forward for ease of lifting. The roller and levelling board are hydraulically adjusted. The tines can be changed quickly with just one bolt for fixing, and the straight share can be reversed extending working life by up to 20 per cent. There is a range of rear packer options available.

New folding, mounted Prolander R vibrating tine cultivators are available in 4.5 and 6.0m working widths.

Drill news Drill updates include a new foldable pneumatic seed drill combination. The BTFR 6030 seeding bar has a 6m working width and uses SeedFlex coulters. These are parallelogram mounted with depth control and a press wheel. The double discs have a 41mm offsett and a 35cm space between the first and second rows ensures accurate performance, even in wet conditions and heavy soils. Seeding depth is adjusted hydraulically. For versatility that will appeal to larger farms and contractors, VistaFlow seed distribution provides intelligent tramlining making it simple to establish crops even when drill and tramline widths don’t match. The system even allows starting at any point in the field with tramline position automatically calculated. 2x2 VistaFlow valves are

standard but an upgrade offers halfwidth shut-off on the left side, or for maximum flexibility a full universal VistaFlow distribution head with halfwidth shut-off on the left or right is available. A separate transport carriage is removed in the field and attached quickly for the road without tools. The new BTFR 6030 was demonstrated mounted to the HR6040RCS power-harrow and TF1512 front hopper. The HR6040RCS is for tractors up to 460hp and comes with hydraulic depth and levelling bar adjustment with the bar also adjustable for angle. With the seed bar removed the power-harrow can be used independently. The front hopper has 1,500 litres standard capacity, with the option to increase it to 2,000 litres. Isobus

Drill updates include a folding pneumatic drilling combination.

compatibility allows the hopper to be controlled through the CCI terminal or tractor display and with volumetric metering rates between 1–430kg/ha can be achieved.

Greater flexibility There is strong demand for mechanical seed drills and Kuhn Sitera 3010/3020 and 3030 3m box drills all provide top quality seeding and great ease of use points out the company. The 3010 comes with Suffolk coulters, the 3020 has Double Disc coulters and the 3030 has SeedFlex coulters. Seed rate is controlled by Helica fluted metering units; one for each chute and capable of handling seeds of any type. User-friendly set-up includes the new VT30 3.5in colour touch screen that displays the main functions including hopper level, metering rotation and automatic tramline management. Isobus compatibility for the Sitera 3030 version means a CCI

terminal or suitable tractor terminal can be used along with Kuhn’s SpeedSet smartphone app. A new quick-release interface allows quick fitting and removal from latest HR power-harrows and CD disc cultivators, making it easy to swap cultivation elements in response to working conditions or to use the cultivators separately. The new HR1020, 1030 and 1040-series power-harrows come in 3.0, 3.5 and 4.0m working widths and are suited to tractors up to 300hp. Where conditions allow, swapping the drill onto the new CD1020 seedbed cultivator - available currently in 3.0 and 3.5m versions, allows faster working up to 15kph. The disc cultivators have 24 or 28 discs and leave a fine tilth and level seedbed. Continuous working depth adjustment is an option for real-time adaptation to working conditions and they come with a new levelling bar with hydraulic or manual adjustment of depth and angle.

 Sitera mechanical box drills feature a new quick-fitting interface and can be used with seedbed cultivators instead of a power-harrow where conditions allow for faster working and reduced power requirement.

Packer options include the new large 590mm MegaPacker roller, the 550mm SteelLiner furrow-opening roller, the 535mm MaxiPacker roller and the 592mm PackLiner.

French press launch for new products


The new CCI800 8in screen (left) joins the base CCI50 and CCI1200 in Kuhn’s line-up providing additional options for users. The CCIA3 joystick (right) is versatile and comes with different grid patterns to suit various applications.

The new Maxima 3 electric-driven precision drill enables variable seeding to reduce costs or maximise yields. ...from previous page

Ultimate versatility

from field maps can be achieved using the new Maxima 3 electrically driven drill. Kuhn suggests techniques to improve profitability include adjusting seed numbers to suit the soil type; capitalising on areas of high potential, and limiting seed population in areas with lower potential can optimise yields across the field. Coupled with automatic row shut-off this results in seed savings of two to three per cent claims the company. Agronomic optimisation involves adjusting the seed rate in lower potential areas to reduce water stress and improve access to nutrients and light for the crops planted. Varying seed rates to achieve optimum plant numbers for the soil characteristics results in typical yield increases of five to eight per cent, adds Kuhn. Adjusting the seed rate by row is simple with all settings made through the Isobus terminal. Seeding density changes constantly in response to the modulation map and position, and if the drill passes over two different rate zones at the same time, then the individual rows comply with the specific rate instruction for the location.

Also shown at the event was Kuhn’s Aurock 6000 seed drill which is designed to optimise plant establishment in zero-till farming regimes but also performs well in direct-seeding, min-till and mulchbased crop establishment situations. The Aurock is available with single (R) or dual metering (RC) allowing users to mix two varieties and establish through one seeding unit or to sow each type in alternate rows while managing seeding depth independently. The Aurock can be equipped with an integrated cutter roller with adjustable pressure allowing chopping or lighter crimping of vegetation such as cover crops. A full-width wheel set can also be fitted for min-till seeding with a staggered wheel train preventing soil build up and reducing power demand. Two rows of opener discs create an opening slot at the front, and there are two disc options including a 460mm wavy disc to work on prepared soil or a 430mm embossed disc for efficient residue cutting and minimum soil movement. Parallelogram-mounted double discs place seed in the slot and an articulated chassis means the coulters precisely follow the opening discs even during turns.

The Aurock 6000 drill is designed for zero-tillage regimes but is attractive for growers moving toward zero-tillage as flexible set-up means it can be tailored to suit various soil and weather conditions. Cultivation and seed and fertiliser placement options make it extremely versatile.

The Aurock is Isobus compatible for control direct from the tractor or through the CCI50 or CCI1200 terminals, and a joystick option can be added for greater ease of control. Trials ahead of the drill’s launch and during its development were very successful in the UK, where the drill proved it could work perfectly in a zero-till regime, and also perform well on fields where conservation tillage practises had started, but where conditions were not yet suitable for full no-till establishment. (See Farmers Guide June 19 edition for more information).

Control line-up Kuhn’s display choice has been increased with the addition of a new CCI800 8in screen. This joins the current CCI50, and the CCI1200 which can monitor and control two Isobus– equipped machines at the same time. The new CCI800 can manage and control one Isobus-equipped machine and is equally user-friendly. Tapping the screen allows each CCI application to be viewed on a full display, allowing adjustments to be made quickly and easily. To return to the standard display the user simply taps the screen again. The CCI800 version is Agrirouter-ready and transmits data wirelessly with no USB stick needed. Also new is the CCIA3 joystick controller with a touchdisplay and different grid layouts to suit various implements.

Cutter bar upgrade An improved version of the OptiDisc cutter bar features on more than 60

mowers and mower-conditioners in Kuhn’s forage line-up. The OptiDisc Elite retains design strengths of the standard OptiDisc including variable disc spacing dependent on direction of rotation with a wider gap where blades converge for improved forage flow-through and to prevent double cutting, and smaller centre distances between forward-rotating discs to increase overlap. Also retained is FastFit knife attachment for quick blade changes in the field. New features of the Elite version include doubling of the overlap area to improve performance in wet, sticky swaths and heavier crops. New disc bearings hold the knives in place and allow 360 degrees of swivel to protect against impact damage. Replaceable wear plates are available which can be fitted to the disc skids, along with protective plates for the underside of the cutter bar. Demonstrated at the event was a pair of rear-mounted GMD8730 mowers working with a front-mounted GMD3123F. The GMD8730 disc mower is an established model but has been upgraded with features to optimise its quality of work. A slightly wider cut width up to 8.8m increases overlap and the standard cutterbar is the new OptiDisc Elite, complete with Fast-Fit knives. Independent left/right lift with electric pre-selection makes it easier to finish tapered work areas. New FlexProtect polyethylene side continued over...

The main news affecting Kuhn’s mower range was the introduction of the OptiDisc Elite cutter bar which was demonstrated on GMD3123F front-, and GMD8730 rear-mounted mowers.

guards are fitted which flex rather than break if an impact occurs. The GMD8730 is compatible with 3.1m or 3.5m front mowers and it can be stored flat or vertical using parking stands supplied as standard. It’s ideally suited to tractors from 120–130hp, says the company. The GMD3123F front mower is for tractors between 80–170hp and fits into the line-up between the GMD2721F and GMD3121F lightweight mowers designed for hill work and the heavier duty GMD3125F and GMD3535F which are for intensive use. The mounting linkage allows pendulum-type articulation +/-12 degrees for accurate ground contour following. The Optidisc Elite cutterbar is standard with the direction of disc rotation helping form compact swaths between 1.3–1.4m wide to avoid damage from tractor tyres. Leaf spring suspension maintains stability for road travel and during tight turns in the field. FlexProtect side guards are fitted with manual or hydraulic folding.

Side delivery rakes Kuhn displayed new GA6930 and GA7530 Gyrorakes for side delivery of forage. Working widths are up to 6.8m and 7.4m respectively. The ability to produce one or two windrows from the GA7530 model is standard, but an option on the GA6930. Both are suitable for heavy working conditions thanks to the MasterDrive gearbox which has a double reduction system. A high frame allows the rotors to lift rapidly for headland turns and generous clearance over swaths already formed prevents damage.

Both rotors lower rear first to protect the sward and allow gentle engagement with the forage. Rotors have 3d articulation and the wheels are positioned close to the tines for accurate ground contour following. For transport StabiDrive uses an inclined hitch pin to apply pressure to the inner wheel during cornering to ensure maximum stability.

Centre delivery rakes The GA7631 and GA8131 semimounted central delivery Gyrorakes are designed for medium and larger farms with working widths of 7.5m and 8.0m. Drive is through MasterDrive generation 3 gearboxes, which save weight and require lubrication only every 200 hours. The rotors have 3d suspension and lower rear first for progressive ground contact. With the rotors lifted there is 43–70cm clearance to avoid contact with formed windrows. Hydraulic adjustment of working and windrow width is standard and options include hydraulic working height adjustment, individual rotor lifting, wider transport wheels, a bogie axle and hydraulic windrow curtain.

Simpler specification Complementing the current flagship GA13131 and GA15131 4-rotor rakes the new GA13031 offers 8.4–12.5m working width but a simpler specification and lower price tag. Rotor drive is 100 per cent hydraulic for reduced maintenance over mechanical drive alternatives and a MasterDrive G3 transmission ensures trouble-free operation in heavy swaths. Specification includes 3d rotor articulation, suspension springs on the front rotors and wheels close to the tines for accurate ground following. Control is by the tractor’s hydraulic

The new GA8131 twin-rotor rake is intended for medium and larger farms and offers an 8m working width.

Complementing current flagship GA13131 and GA15131 4-rotor rakes, the new GA13031 offers 8.4–12.5m working width and a simpler specification.

valves unlike the GA13131 which has Isobus connectivity and a further feature not available on the latest model, but included on the premium version is the ability to increase front rotor speed relative to the rear by up to 20 per cent. Transport width is under 3m and maximum folded height is under 4m and Kuhn points out that the new rake is ideal for larger farms which need the potential high work rates but which don’t have the latest tractors.

Cleaner forage Swath mergers are in growing demand offering advantages including high work rates and reduced forage contamination. Two new belt mergers have been added, complementing the current Merge Maxx950 which becomes the mid-size model in the range. The Merge Maxx760 and Merge Maxx1090 both offer side or centre delivery. The Merge Maxx760 has two 2.75m pickups giving a total working width of 5.5m for side delivery. Centre delivery increases the working width to 7.5m. The larger Merge Maxx 1090 achieves 10.95m working width in centre delivery format and with both 4.40m pick-ups side by side in sidedelivery position, the working width is 8.80m. The Merge Maxx 760 is controlled by the KMM 01 display and the Merge Maxx 950 and 1090 models are controlled by the AT10.

allows the baler and wrapper to work in combination or separately to suit the situation. With the RW1810 self-loading wrapper the combination becomes fully automated for one-man operation.

Rapid round baling The new VB7100 high performance baler range is designed for larger farms and contractors offering high density and high capacity. The variable chamber round balers create bales up to 140kg/m3 in straw and will bale up to 30t/hr in a wide variety of working and crop conditions. The high bale density is achieved through i-Dense. This uses an intelligent twin tension arm which works with a moisture sensor to automatically adjust the baling pressure according to different crops and conditions for most economical use of the baler. With four belts and three rollers, working with i-Dense, the chamber ensures fast and consistent bale formation in any conditions including silage, claims the company. An integral rotor ensures even crop flow, and active stretch technology for wrapping guarantees consistent net tension. Tailgate operation is the fastest on the market with bale ejection and tailgate closing completed within four seconds. The main drive is by 1.5in chains with constant lubrication. Rotor tines are from Hardox steel and 50mm

New wrapping option A film binding option is available for the FB3135 fixed chamber round baler providing increased protection for bales during transport from baler to wrapper and an additional new feature for several round balers in the range is a factory-fitted drawbar for towing in-line wrappers. Kuhn’s film binding system uses two regular 750mm stretch film rolls eliminating the need for special wide film, reducing film binding costs by approximately 37 per cent claims the company, plus reducing film changing frequency by up to 30 per cent. Using twin rolls which overlap saves time at the start and end of each bale over single roll models. Swapping from film to net is quick and easy as both the net and film rollers stay on the machine. The new drawbar option for FB3135, FB3130 and VB3100 models

The FB3135 fixed chamber round baler has a new film binding option.

The VB7100 high performance round baler offers density up to 140kg/m3 in straw and up to 30t/hr capacity.

Machinery spherical roller bearings are fitted to the main driven rollers and protected by Kuhn patented seals. There are two models currently – the VB7160 for 1.60m bales and the VB7190 for 1.85m bales. Both are Isobus compatible and will be available in limited pre-series next year.

New square balers A new generation of large, square balers to optimise efficiency of straw handling was demonstrated. The SBseries is designed for high work rates and high bale density and four models produce bales in three sizes, all with double knotting. The SB890 produces 80x90cm bales, the SB1270X produces 120x70cm bales and the SB1290 and SB1290iD both make bales of 120x90cm. An improved intake includes a new crop guard and all models feature

The new SB1290iD high-density square baler makes bales of 120x90cm and achieves density up to 198kg/m3 in wheat straw.

new drive lines including higher rated cam-clutches for the rotor with up to 20 per cent extra capacity over current models. All new SB-series balers have a larger 485kg flywheel, up from 285kg currently. The plunger linkage includes angle and force sensors which measure the working load, and thinner flakes from the pre-chamber with size regulated by an electronic management system achieve throughputs up to 45t/hr in wheat straw. For highest bale weights the iD model achieves up to 198kg/m3 straw density in wheat, approximately 25 per cent higher than the standard version due to its 3.85m long chamber and TwinPact double plunger system. Kuhn explained at the event that despite the high bale density, machine stress loadings are similar to a conventional 120x90 baler. The plunger rollers, which used to be replaced every two years are now designed to last the life of the machine, reducing cost of ownership. The new balers feature guidance to tell the operator to move left or right to improve bale formation if the swath is uneven and up to 16 twine spools can be carried on each side of the machine. All SB models are Isobuscompatible for control from the tractor

Feed mixing efficiency Mixer wagon updates include a CVT transmission for Kuhn’s larger two- and three-auger vertical mixers. The electronically controlled, infinitely variable drive includes intelligent management to regulate the auger speed. This allows smaller tractors to power modern, large mixers by reducing the start-up loads required as well as ensuring maximum efficiency during the mixing process. The transmission is part hydraulic drive

and part mechanical – similar to tractor CVT units and Kuhn said advantages include reduced power requirement and less fuel consumption, lower risk of tractor overload – especially during the early stages of mixing, automatic selection of faster blade speeds as the tub empties for a cleaner hopper and total control of mixing speed during the mixing process. There are three operating modes; Manual- reducing torque on the tractor during start-up and allowing total control of mixing speed throughout the cycle. continued over...

Automix- This automatically regulates the auger speed depending on the stage of the mixing cycle. AutoTorque- This regulates the auger drive according to torque and after the operator enters the tractor power at the terminal the computer determines the input power required by the CVT gearbox based on power exerted on the satellite gears. If power requirement exceeds the set power limit then the drive ratio changes to reduce demand. The new transmission will be available in limited numbers as a preseries next year.

Agri-Longer G2 hedge and grass cutters replace previous models, incorporating a mechanical safety system. There are 2 models – the 4345M with 4.3m reach and the 4745M with 4.8m reach. 220-degree head rotation and the outer boom cylinder positioned above the arm makes it easy to tackle hedge tops and ditches and allows working at the rear of the tractor in areas with restricted space. An air-cooled radiator keeps the 40hp transmission oil cool. Lights are integrated into the bumper for protection and control is by cable or electronic. ■

Bedding dust control CleanStraw is an option for Kuhn straw bedders and uses a fine mist of water during straw spreading causing dust to settle faster. Very little water is needed so straw moisture absorbency is not affected. A 64-litre tank is standard which is enough for 12–18 straw bales applying at a rate of 3 litres per 100kg of straw. CleanStraw is available to fit to the chutes of all multi-purpose straw blowers and mixer wagons equipped with straw blowing turbines, and can be supplied for after-fitment as well as to new machines.

The new BVR 100 series shredders are available for front-, or front- and rearmounting. Spraying a fine mist of water on dry straw during spreading reduces dust for improved stock health. The CleanStraw applicator holds enough water for 12–18 straw bales.

Maestro drill

Powered by a 310hp Stage V engine, main new features include increased ground clearance, Cat IV cab, controls, and a chassis concept called ComfortDrive. The combination of a central frame and hydro-pneumatically spring-loaded individual wheel suspension is new. Active level regulation provides increased driving comfort on the road, in the field and on slopes. The wheel hub drive provides automatic load-dependent stepless drive and an anti-slip control.

The Maestro drill is now available as CV and RV models. The CV can use a central hopper for seed and fertiliser, or a large fertiliser hopper and individual seed tanks as with the previous Maestro CC. A simple and flexible mechanism allows the number of rows and spacing to be changed. The capacity of the central tank is 3,000 litres for fertiliser and 800 litres for seed. If the fertiliser-only central tank is used, the capacity is 3,000 litres with 70 litres of seed per

T c f

row hopper. In addition to the 8- and 12-row versions, a new 9-row version is available. The Maestro RV is an 8-row mounted unit with one seed tank per row. Fertiliser supply is from a frontmounted pressurised hopper. Both CV and RV models are equipped with a new vacuum metering device called AirVac. This works with a scraper that requires no adjustment. This increases the range of the standard single grains that can be handled (maize, sugar beet, sunflower,

soya and OSR) with further crops, such as beans and peas, possible in the future. The seed body is revised for higher stability and a high hydraulic coulter pressure. It is connected to the main frame with a new clamping profile that makes it easy to alter the number of rows from 12 to 8.

It will be possible to fit the Focus with a MiniDrill 400-litre hopper in the near future. ...from previous page

additional choice to the TurboDisc double disc coulter; the TurboEdge is suited to row spacings that are larger than 25cm for OSR and beans. Especially suited to heavy soils or those with a lot of surface residue, a new crumbling unit in front of the packer provides a finely tilled seed strip and is said to work well on medium and heavy soils. In the near future, the MiniDrill with a 400-litre hopper will also be available for the Focus.

Front tank updates The front tank range is expanded with the Partner 2000 FT, the bigger brother of the current Partner 1600

FT. The 2,200-litre capacity model is available in 2 versions; 60:40 double tank or 75:25 double tank. The double front hopper can provide seed and fertiliser or 2 different fertilisers. The 75:25 model features a larger hopper section intended for fertiliser or seed while the smaller section is for micro-granular compound. In this case, a standard and a micro-granular metering device are mounted instead of the 2 standard metering devices as in the 60:40 partition version. Options include a tyre packer, additional weights and working lights.

and silty soils. Available for all Terrano FM, Cruiser XL and Joker RT models in 10 and12m working widths, the 730mm diameter provides a high load-bearing capacity, especially useful on lighter soils.

Wireless connectivity SmartCan is a system that allows machine functions to be operated by mobile phone and, in the future, will serve as a means to link customer, machine and manufacturer. As development progresses, it will allow all machine data to be read and is the first step in providing WiFi (WLAN) access to the machine. Using a smartphone and the

corresponding MobileControl app, the operator will then be able to access this data. The app is available for Android (Google) and iOS (Apple) operating systems. Using the app, it is possible to easily carry out machine functions including calibration, nozzle tests on Leeb sprayers or a row test on the Maestro. In the future, wireless software updates or remote diagnostics with the dealer might also be possible. SmartCan also allows for the transfer of telemetry data or data exchange with farm management systems. At Agritechnica, the system will be connected to Agrirouter software. â–

High capacity seeding with new trailed drill Norwegian manufacturer Kverneland has increased its drill portfolio with the introduction of the high-capacity, high-output, trailed DG II seed drill. Available in 9 and 12m working widths, and lending itself to controlled traffic systems, the DG II uses Kverneland’s double-disc CD coulter. The 9m unit gets 72 coulters, while the wider 12m version is equipped with 96 coulters. Both models produce 12.5cm row spacings. A number of improvements have been made with the introduction of the DG II. These include improved folding and machine balance to maintain a positive weight on the tractor. Transport dimensions include a 3m width and 4m overall height. Road speed capability is now 40kph, the dual metering units supply has been simplified, and hydraulic folding seed distribution heads included. “The DG II’s cross-shaft is carried on the tractor’s lower link arms, and it gains a hydraulic weight transfer system that automatically tightens under the lower link arms as the drill is folded and unfolded,” explains Kverneland

product manager Graham Owen. This makes it easier to operate the DG II with a much smaller, lighter tractor – typically, 200–250hp – he adds. A new toolbar feature called Active-on also balances and maintains pressure, both laterally and longitudinally, across the full working width of the DG’s coulter bar to improve seed placement depth, while delivering up to 80kg of coulter pressure. The Isobus-controlled seed drill offers dual Eldos electrically driven seed metering units to feed each half of the drill from the grain-only 6,000-litre seed hopper. Seed rates extend from 2–320kg/ha, and include variable seed rate control. The dual distribution heads that supply the coulters can be equipped with a seed flow monitoring system to warn of blockages, and simplifying the use of this high-performance drill. Options include a hydraulically adjustable clod board and a 12mm finger tine harrow in place of the S-tine following harrow. Dual track eradicators, LED lighting, seed flow

Charity chief executive announces retirement

Charles Smith (above), chief executive of farming help charity, The Farming Community Network (FCN) is to step down from the role in December 2019. Mr Smith joined FCN in June 2011 and has led the organisation through a period of change and improvement. He will be staying on until a successor is appointed. Mr Smith said: “I am very proud of our progress as a charity and the number of farmers and families

we have been able to help during this time. “As FCN approaches its 25th anniversary, I am confident that we have laid solid foundations for a successful future. I feel that now is the right time for me to step down and hand over the reins so I can enjoy my farm in retirement. I leave in the confident knowledge that our beloved FCN will go on to provide even more comprehensive support to the farming community.” Howard Petch CBE, chair of trustees at Germinate, The Arthur Rank Centre and former vice-chairman of FCN trustees said: “Charles has made a huge contribution to the developmental journey of FCN. Under his leadership and guidance FCN has remained rooted in its Christian ethos, is more ‘fit for purpose’ and has a national profile and credibility way beyond the level he inherited.” ■

Updates to forestry tyre range Tyre manufacturer ATG has revealed improvements and additions to its range. The Forestar ELIT range has been expanded with an additional special size aimed at forwarders, the 600/5526.5 20 PR F. The low inflation ELIT tyres are capable of carrying the same load being inflated only up to 2.5 bars as standard forestry tyres inflated to 4.5–5 bars. Low pressure tyres offer a larger footprint, leading to lower soil compaction and a comfortable ride for an operator, says ATG. A larger footprint also provides high traction, reduces fuel costs and increases overall productivity of operational forest work. Earlier this year, Alliance relaunched its Forestar 643 III and

Forestry & Hedging

The new 75 Series Power Arm models from McConnel feature a unique hydraulic oil tank design.  

The heavy duty MJ24 Flail Mower from Major Equipment is available in 2.30 and 2.74m working widths.

The EFX series Forestry Mulchers from Teagle Machinery use a rotor with fixed tungsten carbide teeth for heavy duty vegetation clearance.

Power on the land In this month's Power on the Land Mike Williams takes a look at the latest developments in the world of forestry and hedging equipment. The McConnel Power Arm range of vegetation control machines includes 12 series providing 42 different models with thousands of different equipment and build options. The newest addition to the range is the heavy duty 75-series available with 5 different reach options from 5.6 to 8.0m. There are 3 different control system options, the hydraulic system operates at 70hp and the recommended tractor requirement is 120hp. A special 75-series design feature is the new hydraulic oil tank with a 400mm internal duct to allow cooling air to be drawn through the middle of the tank. The duct, said to be a unique feature, adds 21 per cent to the cooling surface area and helps to maintain a safe working temperature for the hydraulic oil. The duct draws in clean air from the off-side of the machine, and an electric fan with automatic operation helps maintain a constant oil temperature and includes a reverse flow cycle to clear debris. The central core has tank baffles to eliminate internal dead spots, and the low oil flow velocity to the return chamber virtually eliminates the risk of cavitation caused by air bubbles forming in the oil. The list of chainsaws available in the Makita range of power tools includes cordless electric models using rechargeable lithium-ion batteries, and there are 8 petrol powered saw models with 2-stroke engines. The engine powered saws are available with bar lengths from 35–74cm, with the medium and larger models designed for professional use. The top model is the DCS901074 powered by a 90cc engine developing 6.8hp. The specification includes a 1.0-litre capacity fuel tank and the net weight is 8.2kg. Smaller capacity petrol models include the EA3601F35B weighing 4.2kg with a 35.2cc engine developing 2.4hp to power a 35cm cutterbar. Makita insists that its cordless electric chainsaws should be used only by trained tree surgeons. Power is provided by either one or two 18-volt batteries, with the double batteries arranged in series to provide 36 volts. Bar lengths

are up to 30cm and features on some models include a trigger control to vary the chain speed plus an electrically operated chain brake. The flail mower and mulcher range from Teagle Machinery starts with the Mini flail suitable for a 12hp compact tractor, and at the top end of the range are the ECF and EFX series Forestry mulchers including models suitable for tractors up to 300hp and with the capacity to deal with material up to 35cm diameter. Forestry mulchers are available in front and rear mounted versions, the equipment list for both versions includes a protective arch, a double-skinned chassis and a rear hood operated hydraulically, and they are suitable for jobs such as maintaining access tracks in woodland, clearing fire breaks and for heavy duty reclamation work. Mulching action for the ECF series is based on a cage rotor with hammer flails swinging through 360 degrees. The 3 models are available in 1.4 to 2.5m working widths with maximum cutting capacities from 15–30cm diameter, and the tractor requirement is up to 200hp. The EFX series models use fixed tungsten carbide teeth to mulch material up to 35cm thick and are available with up to 2.5m working width. Specially designed hammer heads provide the cutting action for the MJ24 heavy duty Flail Mower in the Major Equipment range, with flail heads available as an option. There are 2 models with 26 and 30 flail heads providing 2.30 and 2.74m working widths and minimum power recommendations are 80 and 100hp respectively. The MJ24 series mowers are recommended for heavy duty scrub control, orchard mowing and cutting firebreaks as well as amenity grass cutting. Also available from Major is a range of Flail Collectors including the MJ2000 series models in 4 working widths from 1.5–2.0m. They have heavy duty hammer heads with 12–150mm cutting height adjustment, and the 3.0m3 collecting hopper on the largest model has a 2.0m tipping height. Minimum tractor

power for the largest model is 50hp, and the Flail Collectors are suitable for a wide range of applications including amenity and conservation areas with heavy duty scrub growth including heather, bracken and gorse. Materials handling is an important part of a commercial forestry operation, requiring heavy duty equipment to deal with the harvesting process which can sometimes involve working in difficult site conditions. The Manitou range of handling equipment suitable for working with timber includes rough-terrain and truck mounted forklifts, and telehandlers can also help with the stacking and loading work in the timber yard. The Manitou range of rough-terrain forklifts includes the M26-2 model with 2.6t lift capacity and a 3.7m lift height. It is powered by a 75hp Perkins engine with 2wd, and there is also an M26-4 version with 4wd. The top model in the rough-terrain sector is the M70-2H with a 75hp Deutz power unit capable of lifting 7.0t to the 4.0m maximum height. Manitou also offers a comprehensive range of industrial forklifts, and as well as the forklifts and telehandlers they also have a comprehensive range of handling attachments suitable for timber harvesting and processing. Caterpillar offers an extensive range of machinery options for forestry work including equipment for building and maintaining access roads plus timber handling equipment for every stage from the forest to the timber yard. The heavy duty handling equipment covers tracklaying and wheeled machinery and includes uprated specifications for the D series skidders. There are 4 models in the current D series range of wheeled skidders plus one tracklaying model. The tracked skidder is the 527 model powered by a 150hp engine and designed specifically for logging work. The 4 models in the D series skidder range with 4wd start with the 525D with a 203hp engine and the power output for the range-topping 555D is 275hp. The list of design updates on the D series wheel loaders features hydraulic system improvements to speed up the cycle times, service access is easier and long term reliability and driver comfort also benefit. ■ September 2019 63

Chainsaw test

First fuel-injected chainsaw – extended on-farm test Stihl launched the world’s first fuel-injected chainsaw in late 2018 with deliveries starting from spring this year. Farmers Guide arranged an extended test with a large Suffolk estate to find out if it offered advantages over traditional models. David Williams reports. When Stihl announced its new MS500i fuel-injected model the main advantages claimed included superb power-to-weight ratio, rapid chain acceleration, simple operation and reduced weight. The 80cc model is bigger than most farms would need day-to-day but is likely to be chosen for tasks where sizable wind-blown trees have to be cleared or where treefelling and sectioning is a regular task.

Ideal test user Huge demand since full production started earlier this year means supplies have been limited but Farmers Guide borrowed a demonstration model from Stihl UK and loaned it to the forestry department of Elveden Estate near Thetford, Suffolk. The estate comprises 9,100ha including over 4,000ha of arable cropping where the Breckland soils favour irrigated

vegetable production along with conventional cereal crops, and 1,400ha of commercial and amenity woodland, much of it in shelterbelts and plantations. For the full-time forestry team typical tasks include felling, hedge and woodland clearance, firewood preparation and clearing wind-blown branches and trees, with almost all the work at ground level. A wide selection of saws are used from 59–120cc and currently none of them are Stihl, but assistant foreman Jake Rolph said that he and his colleagues were well aware of the entry of the fuel-injected model to the market and were keen to try it. continued over...

Stihl’s MS500i fuel-injected 80cc chainsaw was put through its paces for Farmers Guide by the forestry team at Elveden Estate. Ben Blackburn (pictured) was impressed by its performance and ease of use.

The MS500i offers incredible power for its 79.2cc engine size including chain acceleration of 0–100kph in under a quarter of a second. Recommended retail price with a 20in bar is £1,100 and with a 25in bar it is £1,120.

Claims to fame Best power-to-weight ratio chainsaw on the market • 0–100kph chain acceleration in under 0.25 seconds • Fuel injector supplies precise fuel dose 233 times per second at 14,000rpm • Approved for 16–36in bars

User view Jake commented that his first impression was that the saw styling was aggressive and it was surprisingly light and compact for the engine size. Reservations regarding the design included the priming bulb position and the stop switch design. The saw came with 20 and 25in


bars; sizes recommended by Stihl, and Jake described power delivery as ‘outstanding’ with full performance available instantly. “We consider the chain acceleration of our current saws impressive and when we were told that the MS500i chain accelerates from standstill to 100kph (60mph) in less than quarter of a second we didn’t know whether the difference would be noticeable. But it’s obvious as soon as you use it – usually we lift the saw and squeeze the throttle while preparing to cut as the chain accelerates. With the MS500i it’s more a case of putting the chain to the wood, then squeezing the throttle and it’s straight into it.” The main user was Ben Blackburn. “Even with a larger bar fitted, it’s

lighter than our smallest 60cc saws and it’s quiet too,” he said. “The working noise is surprisingly low and it’s not tiring even after a long period cutting. My only criticism really is the air cleaner design. The intake is at the rear of the engine low down on the right side, so in dry cutting conditions sawdust is sucked in to the filter.” Asked about the air filter, Stihl product manager Paul Hicks commented that it’s designed to provide adequate air flow even with a build up of dust and that no cleaning is needed until a drop in power is noted. “In a working situation if a loss of power occurs then it can be

tapped out, but the best practise is to just wash it using Stihl cleaning fluid monthly, or each time the saw is serviced. This removes the smallest particles from the element and restores it to new performance and there should be little need for cleaning in-between.” Starting was described as easy. There is no choke but for cold or hot starting the priming bulb has to be depressed eight times to supply fuel then three pulls of the recoil start are needed to get the engine running. Because carburettor models have a fast idle setting after starting they warm up quickly, but the fuel-injected saw has no choke and is at its low idle speed as soon as it is running. “We found it helped to let it run for a while before starting cutting to let continued over...

Chainsaw test

The air cleaner design was questioned by the test users who commented that sawdust is easily sucked into the housing through the intake near the rear handle.

The air cleaner cover and filter were easily removed for cleaning in just a few seconds without any tools. However, Stihl suggests frequent cleaning is unnecessary and that the filter should be serviced only monthly, or if a loss of engine power occurs.

The users had reservations about the new engine stop switch as well as the fuel priming bulb. However, during the test period the stop button design became more popular while the possibility of puncturing the priming bulb remained a concern.

...from previous page

Jake tried it with one of the estate’s larger 36in bars, the largest size approved by Stihl. “I was amazed how easily it handled it,” he said. “Using it on our other saws means waiting for the drive to take up and the chain to reach working speed before cutting, but the rapid acceleration of the new saw meant it was ready to work as soon as the throttle was pressed. Knowing it can handle such a range of bar sizes

makes it very versatile and with its light weight too it’s something which could interest us. We have an 86cc saw currently which wouldn’t be a match for the 80cc Stihl with the large bar fitted, despite it being bigger and heavier.” Paul said fuel injection requires no more maintenance than a carburettor model. “The injector is simpler with fewer moving parts than a carburettor and effective

the engine warm up, otherwise full power took a few seconds to be available,” added Ben. Ben said the new stop button design proved a positive upgrade from previous Stihl models and was easy to use while the fuel priming bulb is well protected but could be punctured by thorns. With the MS500i proving so capable with the 20 and 25in bars,

protection against dirt in the fuel is provided by the latest filters fitted to all our saws. The electronic control is self-adjusting for air pressure as well as internal and external temperatures so the user can leave it alone, forget the fuel injection and just use the saw.” Compared with similar-sized Stihl carburettor chainsaws the MS500i is impressive. Stihl 462 72.2cc produces 6.0hp and 4.7Nm of torque. Weight 6.0kg Stihl MS500i 79.2cc produces 6.8hp and 5.4Nm of torque. Weight 6.2kg Stihl 661 91.1cc produces 7.4hp and 6.0Nm of torque.

Scottish fencing contractor benefits from brand change The Wrag Opus 300 is used mainly to erect stock fencing on challenging terrain.

Offering a fencing service within a 100-mile radius of his company’s headquarters at Tain, Ryan Murray relies on versatile machinery capable of working in the toughest conditions. “We have built up a very successful business over the past five years,” explains Ryan, “mainly carrying out fencing work for Scottish Woodlands on behalf of Network Rail as well as for farmers across the region.” Many worksites pose a challenge for Ryan and his team with difficult

access and demanding terrain and when he was due to update one of his two post drivers he needed something more versatile than the machines used at the time. “I heard about the Wrag range of post drivers and contacted the company which is based near Rocester,

Staffordshire. I was amazed at how helpful Tim Wright was discussing the range of products which might suit my needs best. Within a week I had a visit from Tim during which we discussed solutions further and he provided the names of several current users we could speak with to discuss their experiences of the Wrag range and the company’s back-up. “I placed an order a week later and was told delivery would be within 10 weeks and, as promised, the Wrag Opus 300 Track Post Driver arrived, replacing one of my two other machines. It’s very agile, capable of getting to and working on steep ground safely and much better suited to our situation than the two post drivers we used at that time which were of a more conventional design mounted to tracked vehicles.” Ryan said the performance of the new Opus 300 is excellent and all its users are impressed with the ease of use, build quality and design. “Everything breaks eventually and because we are so busy with a growing business we can’t afford downtime. For many suppliers our remote location is a problem but from what we have

experienced so far I’m sure Wrag will react quickly if we have a problem and with all components manufactured in the UK, rapid delivery of replacement parts is guaranteed. When we update our second post driver I have no doubt its replacement will be another Wrag and we are also keen to look at Wrag’s new lighter post driver when it becomes available, as this could be towed by a pick-up making it ideal for contracts further from home,” he explained. ■

Ryan Murray’s Wrag Opus 300 Post Driver is equipped with a 300kg hammer and has up to 4.2m under hammer clearance. It was ordered with optional rock spike, rear carrier and a tow bar.

Forestry & Hedging McConnel has launched its new 75-series Power Arms aimed at contractors.

Improved efficiency and performance from new power arms The new heavy-duty 75-series Power Arms from McConnel are designed to meet the needs of contractors. Superseding the popular 1000 series, the new 75-series features a new oil tank design with an integrated oil cooler fan. The design delivers outstanding de-aeration performance, improved cooling and eliminates areas within the tank where resting oil can concentrate says McConnel. This new design improves efficiency, performance and durability, ensures consistent cooling in all weather conditions, and reduces heat build-up. The 75-series comes with a choice of 5 different reach options from 5.6–8.0m including VFR and Tele-VFR armset and are powered by a 70hp high-performance hydraulic system. LED lighting, high visibility strobe work lights and reflective rear chevrons now also come as standard. Meanwhile McConnel’s Power Arm control system ‘Revolution’ can now be specified with a mini joystick. Previously, the control system was only available with a large joystick, but customers can now choose the joystick style they prefer, without losing any advanced functionality. This includes full proportional control of up to 8 different functions as well as 2 further bang-bang functions. It also comes with McConnel’s acclaimed Easy Drive System, boosting safety and increasing verge mowing speeds by up to 4.5 times the norm.

Forestry & Hedging Machinery open day success

KWR Planthire arranged a successful willow-pollarding demonstration.

The team at forestry machinery specialist KWR Planthire welcomed more than 40 people to an open day event at its Grantham base. “We were mainly showcasing our Sennebogen 718E with our Greentec 952 Mega chipper which was designed for us by UFKES in Holland,” said Kate Russell from KWR.  “This chipper is powered by our Fendt 939's PTO drive and has a built-in cracker. The chipper is designed to work in unison with

our Sennebogen machine ideal for roadside, riverbank, woodland and trackside. It chips directly into its 20m3 bin, then lifts and side tips either to stock pile or directly into walking floor lorries, offering a safer option for highway works and solving access issues for hauliers especially in wetter conditions.” Visitors to the open day were able to see the wheeled Sennebogen working alongside the company’s Ponsse Ergo

with Bracke accumulating head pollarding some large willows bank side with the chipper tailing along behind. “It gave the crowd an excellent view point watching the three work methodically and safely in what was an efficient and productive process,” added Kate.  As well as a range of other forestry machinery the company offers the Sennebogen attachments including mulcher, flair, stump grinder and saw grab. ■

Forestry & Hedging

The Auto-Level Co-Pilot technology keeps the machine level at all times even over undulating ground.

Tyres for all forestry equipment The tyre is the key element to get the most out of your equipment, says BKT whose forestry ranges are designed to face the most diverse applications even under the toughest conditions on uneven or muddy terrains. BKT offers four distinct forestry product lines: Forestech, FS 216, TR 678 and F 240. Their common feature is resistance, says the manufacturer. Forestech offers exceptional strength and resistance even under the toughest operating conditions. Its sturdy bead and the reinforced shoulder area ensure high puncture resistance. As well as outstanding traction these features make Forestech the ideal tyre for forwarders. It is available on the market in four different sizes. The Forestech is ideal for forwarders.

Meanwhile the FS 216 offers ‘extraordinary’ cut and tear resistance making it the perfect tyre not only for forwarders, but also for skidders. Durability, a reinforced tread and high puncture resistance are its strengths. It also offers excellent traction, selfcleaning properties and high load capacity. It is available in eight different sizes, each of them either in steel-belted or aramid-belted versions. The TR 679 has been designed for forestry harvesters but is also suitable for excavation operations, and presents best self-cleaning properties in addition to excellent traction. Four sizes are available. Finally the F 240 is the latest addition to BKT’s forestry tyres, specifically designed for logging operations. It offers excellent traction and exceptional maneuverability. Its special and superior tread compound ensures an extended product life-cycle along with cut, wear and tear resistance. The large footprint maximises stability on uneven terrain and the F 240 is available in two different versions. ■

Hardworking hedgecutter Built with usability in mind the Auto-Level 550 rotary hedgecutter from Razorback has been designed to reduce operator fatigue, increase productivity and reduce cost. Featuring a vertical-axis rotary design with self-levelling Co-Pilot technology the Auto-Level is the smart choice for those looking for a hardworking, resilient machine. The 1.5m wide head incorporates a SoftStart triple rotor with additional mulching blades which maintain continuous contact with vegetation during their entire 360-degree cycle. The Co-Pilot technology ensures that the main frame of the machine remains level at all times, irrespective of the tractor angle in relation to the undulating ground. As a result, the need for manual adjustment

for uneven terrain is significantly reduced, for easier, trouble-free operation. The high-end specification comes as standard and includes a 1.5m wide, 5.5m reach head with hydraulically controlled front hood and rear roller, the Auto-Level Co-Pilot device with electronic proportional controls and a fully independent hydraulic system with an oil cooler. The hedgerow and grassland management specialist also offers a range of rotary and flail mowers suited to a variety of applications. The full range will be available for demonstration this Autumn including the RT500 rotary mower which was launched at Cereals this year. ■

Forestry & Hedging Robust joystick controlled hedgecutter makes farm maintenance simple Farmer Heath Cranfield and farm contractor Peter Guy have saved both time and money with Weaving Machinery’s advanced hedgecutters, R520 and R650T with joystick controls. “I’m really impressed so far,” says Heath Cranfield, of Copy Lawn Farm. “The smoothness and stability of the machine has made hedge cutting a much simpler experience. It’s got a good reach, it’s well-built and it’s got good balance.” Heath identified the power slew as a feature that’s really made a difference: “The power slew really gets in the corner of hedges and makes it so much easier. We’ve managed to get all of our hedges right to the corners. We’ve never had that before.” Meanwhile Peter Guy, based in County Durham has been particularly impressed by the oil-over-oil joystick controls: “The controls add a lot when you’re cutting hedges,” he said. “The ease of use is great, and it’s all backed by a good machine. The 1.5m head - the extra reach it gives makes a lot of difference, and it’s very easy to take on and off your tractor. We get everything set up and ready

to go in 10 minutes flat.” The fully proportional joystick controls are designed for operators seeking comfort and convenience during their cutting routine, offering a system that is immediately intuitive and usable. This proven and familiar joystick design is used on numerous tractor mounted loaders around the world and combines the comfort of a joystick with the reliability of cable controls on the R520 model, or oil-over-oil controls on the larger models (R550, R600 & R650T). “It’s got all the top features you need and it’s well-built, but it’s not overly complicated,” adds Peter. Weaving Machinery’s newest hedgecutter, The Agrimaster R520, serves as an entry-level cutter, combining quality construction and a full stabiliser assembly for three-point linkage mounting - ideal for farmers looking for a precise but powerful hedgecutter for regular use. It has a 5.20m reach, 1.25m cutting head and weighs 1,250kg. Features include cable rotor engagement, rotor reverse and power slew with break back. Its oil tank is 200 litres and it requires a tractor of 120hp. It is priced at £9,800.

The Agrimaster R520 from Weaving Machinery is an entry-level machine with premium features.

“It’s excellent value with all the premium features you’d expect in much more expensive machines,” says Simon Weaving. “We’ve refined the technology to make a hedgecutter that’s powerful but accessible.” Do’s and Don’ts for hedgecutting this autumn from Weaving: Do • Always check machinery is functioning and undamaged before each cut.

Always take appropriate safety precautions. • Take care to ensure an even and clean cut. Don’t • Go too fast – take care as you go and take your time. • Begin cutting before 1st September. This is against Defra policy. • Overspend. Choose a hedgecutter because of its performance and features, not its brand name. ■

Hiring a mobile mill can work well for farms or estates wanting smaller quantities of timber milled.

Forestry & Hedging Gearing up for show season The team at SPA Power Machinery is preparing for a busy show season over the autumn and winter months. After successful summer shows including The ARB Show and Driffield Show the autumn events kick off with Saltex on 30th and 31st October, where the company will be showcasing its range of Westermann agricultural machines alongside the established Easy Petrol Post Driver. During the show, the family firm will celebrate its one-year anniversary of being announced as the UK distributors for the German brand. Heading into November, the calendar becomes even busier with trips to Futurescape (19th November) and Midlands Machinery Show (20th and 21st November) planned. Visitors will be able to see live demonstrations of the Easy Petrol Post Driver. Then in early 2020 the team will be heading to Lamma (7th and 8th January). ■ The Easy Petrol Post Driver from SPA Power Machinery will be demonstrated at the Saltex event next month. 62210

Mobile milling solution Mobile mills can offer estate managers the opportunity to mill small parcels of timber as required. While there was a time when every estate had its own sawmill, most of these have now gone due to modern safety standards and the lack of experienced saw millers, says Mike Vongerard of Vongerard Timber. The forestry market is also generally geared up for large volumes of clear fell timber. “A mobile mill such as my Woodmizer LT40 can arrive on site and be milling within 10 minutes,” he says. “The machine has its own loading arms though the highest work rates are achieved with a good driver on a telehandler. The Woodmizer’s blades ensure

a minimum of sawdust giving a smooth accurate cut. “The mill can be set up in any yard or forest ride as circumstances require. I have even done a day of milling in a quiet side road in south London for a joinery firm who had collected some nice logs.” Every job is different, adds Mike. “For example I spent a month milling a large volume of oak for a barn renovation firm. Others are one-day visits to estates and farms. Then there are the unusual ones, such as milling a replacement tie beam for a barn that had been shipped to Long Island. I cut it out of an old lock gate tiller. “The hardest part of the job was getting all the old nails out.” ■

Half the cost, half the time...

The TMK Tree Shear is small enough to fit on a 5 ton excavator and strong enough to be used on a 15 ton excavator Its easy fit bolt on brackets can be changed in minutes, giving the TMK Tree Shear the versatility to be used on a number of different size machines The unique design by Tenho Koponen creates a clean cut by grabbing the tree and pulling it across the fixed blade It then firmly secures the tree against the V clamp so it can be lifted and placed safely

Autumn Cultivations & Tillage-Live

Get up close to the latest crop establishment machinery and thinking

Now in its 28th year, Tillage-Live returns to England this autumn. Organised by the Agricultural Engineers Association (AEA), the event takes place on Wednesday 4th September at Deenethorpe Airfield near Corby in Northamptonshire. The industry has once again drawn together to showcase soil preparation and crop establishment tackle including ploughs, cultivators, conventional, strip tillage and direct drills. In the live demonstration area there will be an opportunity to see machinery working not only in stubble but also – for the first time this year – there will be the opportunity for manufacturers to demonstrate their machinery in two different cover crops. Once again sprayers will be running in the live demonstration area during the day. With working demonstrations from manufacturers including John Deere, New Holland, KRM, Knight

Farm Machinery, Kverneland, Amazone, Horsch, Kuhn, Lemken, Pottinger, Vaderstad and Opico, organisers say the day will provide a real insight into professional crop establishment techniques. The static exhibition area also provides an opportunity to discuss new ideas with industry-leading experts. A number of the static stands have been taken by local machinery dealers. This year’s event also includes a knowledge trail around the site. Visitors can brush up on their knowledge of several different topics, including soils and cover crops as well as tyres and soil protection. Event organiser Kayleigh Holden said: “The AEA is delighted to be at Deenethorpe Airfield. The site offers excellent facilities for manufacturers to showcase their machinery to potential customers and visitors alike and we would like to thank Brudenell Estates for hosting this year’s event.” ■

Autumn Cultivations & Tillage-Live

Modular and adaptable min-till system Due to the demands of smaller and medium sized farms, Pottinger has developed the modular Multiline cultivator and seed drill combination system. The Multiline system can be used as a standalone cultivator or in combination with either one of the company’s Vitasem or Aerosem seed drills. The seed drill element can be removed in a matter of minutes thanks to its hydraulically controlled linkage system. This allows the operator to single-handedly dismount the drill with ease in minutes. To ensure maximum flexibility, the drill can then also be paired with a Pottinger Lion power harrow to tackle more challenging soil conditions. The Multiline system is available in 3 and 4m and is well-suited to tractors from 130hp. Due to its trailed design, smaller tractors can be used when compared to mounted combinations that require a tractor with a large lift capacity. This trailed system offers excellent maneuverability when turning at the

field headland, says Pottinger. The cultivator and drill are hydraulically raised clear of work with the weight being borne by the tyre packer. This tyre packer features offset wheels avoiding harmful smearing when

turning and ensures a smooth ride both in field and on the road. Hydraulic or pneumatic braking for all wheels is also an option. This system offers flexibility, efficiency and great adaptability

for farms wanting to operate with a range of cultivation systems on differing soil types says Pottinger. The company will be exhibiting its Terradisc Multiline and Aerosem at Tillage-Live on 4th September. ■

Effective stubble management is a cornerstone of any efficient crop production system, but must be done correctly and well timed, says Jeff Claydon, Suffolk farmer and designer of the Claydon Opti-Till system. On the Claydon farm he reports cost savings, agronomic advantages and environmental benefits from 17 years’ continuous use of the Opti-Till system. “This provides the ideal machinery mix to quickly, efficiently and cost-

effectively establish any crop that can be air-sown, creating the optimum amount of tillage for all soils and conditions,” he explains. Establishing combinable crops now costs just £51/ha compared to over £300/ha for a traditional ploughbased system, while yields have increased significantly, by over 1t/ ha in the case of wheat, he adds. Opti-Till does just enough to make direct drilling work without the need to subsoil, as with a low-disturbance drill system, or

having to correct damage from the sedimentation of over-worked soils where min-till or plough-based establishment techniques are used. “Doing just enough cultivation at the point of drilling retains the correct soil structure, provides the crop with the ideal growing environment and gives it the strongest possible start. “Regardless of which crop establishment method is used, an effective stubble management programme is essential,” advises Jeff. His preferred management starts with the Claydon Straw Harrow as soon as possible behind the combine. Its 16mm-diameter flexible steel tines shatter the top 10-30mm of soil, creating a shallow micro tilth which provides a warm, humid environment that encourages volunteers and weeds to chit, so they can be controlled effectively, at low cost and with less reliance on chemicals. By mixing and exposing damp chaff and lying

straw to sunlight it also desiccates slug eggs, reduces slug numbers and, in oilseed rape stubbles, helps to reduce their source of food. “Even if you cannot see green shoots on the surface, weeds and volunteers will be growing under the straw, so we repeat this very fast, low-cost operation every 7-14 days when conditions are favourable. Hitting weeds with the straw harrow when they are less than 20mm tall will kill 70 per cent, so repeating this several times dramatically reduces their numbers.” On harder clay-based soils, or where slightly more tilth is required, he advises use of the 6m Claydon TerraStar which moves slightly more soil than a straw harrow but much less than normal tine or disc-type implements. It plucks 80x80mm divots from the top layer of soil, leaving the profile undisturbed. These are created by rotating ‘star’ points fitted in a 200mm grid pattern to two knife bars on each side of the machine. This fine tilth contains continued over...

Less till, less fill. Claydon Opti-Till®. With fewer passes needed, you save on fuel bills, man hours, even equipment. In fact, it’s the most efficient way to create the ideal growing environment for crops. So why plough on with the same old methods?

Autumn Cultivations & Tillage-Live German made cultivators and drills German manufacturer Kockerling produces a wide range of cultivators and drills which are available through Samagri, the sole UK importer. The Allrounder is capable of a number of different tasks, including seedbed preparation after ploughing, opening soil for quicker drying, secondary stubble cultivations, and as a primary cultivator in lighter conditions. The Quadro and Vector can be used for deeper working, or shallow working with the addition of wings. The Vector has full hydraulic depth control.

The Vario/PC is the flagship of the fleet. Equipped with full hydraulic depth control, and eight rows of tines the Vario is a true onepass cultivator. The Rebell is a short disc harrow which is available either mounted or trailed, and Classic (510 discs) or Profiline (620 discs) versions. The Classic version is available from 3.0m mounted up to 12.5m trailed. All Kockerling cultivators and drills come with the renowned original STS roller and have a very generous under frame clearance for heavy trash conditions. ■

a high level of humidity which encourages volunteers and grass weeds to germinate very quickly. The TerraStar also levels the field, but because the soil surface is left largely intact it will support machinery and water will drain away quickly from the surface layer. If required, this shallow tilth can be moved again using the straw harrow, breaking off germinating plants at

the one-leaf stage and eliminating the need to spray while ground conditions allow harrowing. The crop can then be drilled using a 6m hybrid drill. “The output of the Opti-Till system is so high and so greatly improves timeliness that we can comfortably wait for optimum conditions before carrying out stubble management operations or drilling, resulting in better structured, more fertile soils.” ■

The Kockerling Rebell Classic T 6M is available in the UK via Samagri.

Delayed drilling and healthy establishment; Is it possible to have both?

Mzuri recommends strip tillage establishment for greater flexibility in unpredictable seasons.


The optimum time for drilling cereals can be mid-October, but with problems like black-grass, growers can be torn between later drilling to aid weed control and getting the seed drilled early for uniform establishment. Drilling earlier can take advantage of better conditions, but can leave little time for creating stale seedbeds prior to drilling. Strip tillage specialist Mzuri claims that its Pro-Til system offers users the best of both worlds - an ability to control grass weeds pre-drilling, alongside the flexibility of establishing consistent and competitive crops later in the season. By adopting a whole system approach, the manufacturer suggests growers can capitalise on timings by choosing a weatherproof establishment method. The design of its Pro-Til drill aims to provide that by working directly into uncultivated stubbles. When comparing this against working with pre-cultivated soils which can be prone to slumping through a loss of structure, growers have little leeway for extending their drilling season while still guaranteeing rapid establishment. Mzuri says that its system allows users to maximise the benefits of cultivations while retaining the structural integrity of the soil for better travelling and high germination rates later in the season. The one-pass drill delivers seed accurately into a strip of friable tilth, before being reconsolidated for excellent seed to soil contact, providing the perfect environment for successful germination. This targeted cultivation mineralises Nitrogen which coupled with band-placed fertiliser yields rapid, early growth. The resulting seedlings are competitive to emerging weeds, and more resistant to pest pressures. By having this assurance that crops will establish quickly and evenly, Mzuri suggests growers can afford to pick their timings to suit weed control techniques, such as stale seedbeds.. ■

Autumn Cultivations & Tillage-Live Cover crop establishment

The 3m Titanium disc harrow from Bullock Tillage.

Increased popularity of spring crops coming into the arable rotation to help combat grass weed problems has eased the Autumn workload on many farms. However many growers are now taking the opportunity to plant an over winter cover crop prior to spring sowing which has resulted in some fields having three crops in one season. One method of establishing cover crops after harvest is the use of a small seed applicator mounted onto a set of disc harrows so the operation can be carried out in one

pass without the need or expense of a seed drill. Bullock Tillage offers a 3m Titanum disc harrow with a 3-point rear linkage capable of lifting seeders to the weight of 1.5t which is ideal for a one pass operation. The flexibility of the hydraulic linkage allows the seeder to be lowered to the ground for ease of filling without the need to add platforms and steps to the disc harrow. Price for the 3m Titanum with 1.5t hydraulic lift is £8,500 plus delivery. ■

Why make straw management hard work? If straw and stubbles are not managed well it can cause problems at a later date, warns Remac. In most years there is a good opportunity to achieve a very orderly stubble clean-up by delaying any unnecessary cultivation, says Remac UK’s Howard Reeves. They advise to inspect the stubble first to see that it has all been chopped well and if there are any green patches that need spot spraying out. He advises a light topping when stubble is clean. The most important part is to get the best possible chit by not cultivating too soon, he adds. Keeping residue near the top of the surface is important and using a light roller or a topper can help. The warmth of the soil and the damp nights are ideal for creating the perfect chit, and aid straw to start decomposing as it’s not buried under the ground. It can then be lightly cultivated, or the chit sprayed out. Managed this way, crop establishment works out cheaper and more effective in the long run, says Howard. Soil structure is important, good drainage encourages crop competition and at the same time discourages black-grass. Cultivations

Terrano GX

which loosen and mix soil horizons together, benefit black-grass as its seeds can be distributed through the profile, rather than remaining either near the surface where chemical action is strongest, or buried at depths from where the seeds cannot emerge. Maintaining soil horizons while providing an effective fissuring action, makes the Remac Soil Loosener a valuable aid to black-grass management. With the Remac System, this loosening action is also focussed on shallow and medium depths, these being the most common areas of concern today. Generally, deeper soil damage is less frequently found, and is usually best solved by roots and nature in any case, he adds. ■

Managing stubbles well can affect workloads and the success of the following crop.

Autumn Cultivations & Tillage-Live Maximum performance with reduced costs Tillage is an essential aspect of farming, and the range of spaders from Imants promises to complete the task with maximum performance while cutting operating costs. Imants says this is possible because the spaders work the soil intensively and homogeneously. When using the rotary spader, the soil is thoroughly tilled without destroying the structure. The soil is spaded and organic matter can be incorporated. Organic matter is mixed into the top layer where oxygen is available, and microorganisms can break down the organic matter easily, the company says. Straw, corn stubble, green manure and compost can be combined with the soil to provide it with nutrients. The spader won’t create a pan, so there will be better capillary action and water

movement which means nutrients and minerals are readily available to the plants. Because the rotating spade shaft pushes the spader forward, there is no wheel slip or smearing. The tractor drives on top of the soil instead of in the furrow as with ploughing. The spader eliminates compaction and makes a perfect seedbed — all with less fuel consumption per hectare, says JC Machinery which offers a wide range of Imants spaders. Its range varies from the smaller 32 series with a working width of 120cm and a working depth of 20–35cm to the deep spader that operates at a depth of 50–140cm and has a width of 270cm. There are a further 7 models in-between these sizes. ■

Spaders give maximum performance with reduced operating costs.

Range of cultivators for one-pass systems

Dal-Bo’s range of cultivators includes both trailed and mounted machines with working widths of 3.0m up to 12.4m.

The aim with all of Dal-Bo’s cultivators is to create a seedbed on a one-pass system suitable for spring and autumn cultivations.

New cultivator finds favour in UK conditions

The Rubin 10 from Lemken delivers a range of improvements including a new disc leg design.

The Rubin 10 from Lemken has been well received by UK customers. The discs are arranged to produce symmetrical forces on both implement sides. The three central discs on the Rubin 10 have been offset along the longitudinal axis to ensure that they are able to work collision-free across the full width at a line distance of 12.5cm.

The Rubin 10 features surfacehardened DuraMaxx discs with a diameter of 645mm as standard. The new disc leg design with multiple bends provides plenty of clearance to prevent blockages says Lemken. Each concave disc in the Rubin 10 is now equipped with overload protection with dampened return to minimise frame loads. The overload

protection pockets are welded to the frame to keep the discs perfectly on track. An impact harrow behind the first row of discs improves the crumbling effect and distributes soil and organic matter in the direction of travel, while the rear impact and levelling harrow distributes the soil to form an even, level surface. All folding versions feature

hydraulic depth adjustment as standard. The semi-mounted compact disc harrows are optionally available with depth control wheels, which ensure even working depth in variable soils and precise pass alignment along slopes. The Rubin 10 has working widths of 2.5–7.0m and is available with a range of roller options to suit the customer requirements. ■

Low pH will compromise yield and quality There was a small increase in lime use for grassland rotations in 2018, but arable liming declined (see table 1). But limiting lime production is a false economy, says British Sugar, manufacturer of LimeX. It warns that a pH below 6.5 on mineral soil will start to impact significantly on the efficient utilisation of N, P, K and other nutrients often applied annually in both rotations (see table 2). Routine pH testing should be used to Table 1: BSFP survey data showing average national lime use by rotation. Year

ensure an effective liming policy is in place to avoid consequential loss of yield and quality by maintaining an appropriate level for the rotation. Ignoring soil pH and available calcium can prove to be a very costly mistake even in the short term, it warns. When choosing a lime product it advises growers to ask for detailed information, not just its nutrient value. A quality lime should have at least 40 per cent passing 150 micron, with more than 70 per cent reactivity, it says. NV combined with its fineness drives the reactivity, and with it, the rate of and extent of pH change and potential longevity.

Its product LimeX offers over 85 per cent passing 150 micron sieve, and minimum 95 per cent reactivity, and therefore fast pH correction in arable and grassland rotations, and can be used in organic farming systems. Furthermore, the integral nutrient package within LimeX contributes to maintaining soil fertility and increases available calcium. A ‘maintenance’ application of LimeX70 at 7.5/t ha will supply a minimum of 75kg P2O5, 50kg MgO and 45kg SO₃ typically worth at least £75/ha. LimeX meets all quality criteria of the Aglime Quality Standard, and is available to order now for summer and autumn 2019. ■

Great results from tungsten carbide tipped direct drill coulters Having launched its range of direct drill coulters in 2015, JJ Metcalfe & Son is now receiving a great response from farmers and growers. Designed to fit Seedhawk drills or innovatively convert Horsch CO series and Simba freeflow drills into direct drills the JJ Metcalfe coulters have a narrow, replaceable tungsten carbide tipped blade. This cuts through the soil retaining the organic matter on the surface and posing minimal threat to the worm populace.

Ensuring accurate seed placement, the blade cuts a slot to place the seed directly beneath the residues of the previous crop, while leaving virtually no surface disturbance. The company explains: “Minimal disruption is key to direct drilling. Roots and a healthy worm population will take care of aerating and draining the soil and nutrients will come from the use of cover crops and crop rotation. This no-till approach also helps prevent black-grass

establishment by leaving dormant seeds buried well below the surface, unable to germinate.” Farmers and growers are sharing their experiences of the coulters on social media, posting images of drilled fields and crops emerging as well as videos of their drills in action. “The social media response is great for us as we can see what’s happening out in the fields and can use the information to further develop the coulters,” says Abi Metcalfe. ■

Direct drill coulters from JJ Metcalfe & Son ensure accurate seed placement and virtually no surface disturbance.

Plough upgrade improves work rate and finish Selecting the right plough is essential for a Kent family farm which specialises in high quality vegetable production for supermarkets as well as its own farm shop. David Williams reports. Trading as GG Philpott & Son and based at Broadstairs in east Kent, Geoffrey Philpott and his nephew Dominic take advantage of the coastal location’s mild winter weather and specialise in potato and green vegetable production along with traditional cereals. Broccoli and kale are grown and sold in the family’s farm shop, but the main crop is cauliflower which accounts for approximately 95ha of the total farmed area. “Our location is ideal with its lack of frosts and we grow 120–130 varieties of cauliflower which all have to be planted within a 6-week window, and harvested in May and early June as soon as they are ready. After harvest the woody stems and remaining leaves are chopped with discs, then ploughed in to ensure thorough burial. But just as important is leaving fields level as that is a key part of successfully establishing following crops,” explained Geoffrey. Potatoes are a mix of earlies - ready for harvest from mid-May, and later

main-crop and most are sold from the farm shop. The farm also has grassland used for horse grazing and the family’s busy riding school, and for hay.

Large fleet With planting and harvesting dates critical and the range of crops keeping a team of more than a dozen employees busy through much of the year, having enough reliable machinery is essential. Approximately 20 New Holland tractors are operated from 100–210hp and the line-up includes some older Ford 10-series models too, including 2 with permanently-mounted cauliflower harvesting rigs. There are also 4 tractors of another brand used occasionally for maintenance and transport tasks, dating from the early 1970s. “We get on very well with New Holland and are looked after well by the manufacturer and the local dealer. We look after all our equipment well and when new tractors are needed we tend to keep older models rather than

trade them in as it gives us flexibility,” he said.

Attractive plough When a new plough was needed to replace the farm’s aged 5f reversible, Geoffrey was made aware of New Holland’s new tillage product line-up and liked the look of the ploughs. “We were immediately impressed by the build quality and although the fully mounted PHVS4 variable-width 5f version came with all the features needed to achieve high work rates and a good finish, the plough wasn’t over-complicated. Simple machinery is usually best on our farm,” he explained. The new plough was ordered and delivered in early May this year, in time for its main annual task burying cauliflower stubbles. “We are exceptionally pleased with it and the finish it achieved,” added Geoffrey. “We used it behind our New Holland T6080 tractor and found it easy to set up and use. It’s got hydraulic working width and front furrow adjustment so it can be altered quickly to suit the working conditions. We plough deep to bury trash, but are restricted with only 8–10in of top soil over chalk, and achieved an impressively level finish which will optimise conditions

Kent farmer Geoffrey Philpott says investing in one of the first New Hollandbranded ploughs in the UK was definitely the right decision.

for planting the next crops. I’m really pleased with it.”

The right choice Geoffrey said that although the farm is dominated by New Holland machinery, his priority is always to select products which will achieve the best result. “We do have equipment of other brands on the farm but are looked after so well by New Holland and its dealers that the brand will be considered where there is a product which will suit our needs. “After ploughing 100ha with the new plough I have no doubt we made the right choice and when any other cultivation machinery is due for replacement then New Holland will be the first brand considered.” ■

Drainage & Irrigation

Environment Bill may threaten future irrigation prospects Flexible approaches to water abstraction licensing have been welcomed, but longer-term proposed changes could put farming businesses at a disadvantage in the future. Defra has recently published its response to the consultation on proposals to reform abstraction licensing. The proposals, which form part of the draft Environment Bill, include increasing the Environment Agency’s powers to amend and revoke abstract licenses without compensation. It comes after two challenging years of below average rainfall which have put pressure on irrigation, explains NFU water resource specialist Paul Hammett. “We all know how difficult it was in 2018. We have been fortunate in 2019 that we had rainfall events just when we needed them so we haven’t suffered as badly as we could have.” Recent changes to regulations in response to NFU requests for a more flexible approach to abstraction rules have been welcomed, he said. The Environment Agency trialled some flexible licensing approaches and will look to build on these ‘where environmentally sustainable’ Defra says in its response to the consultation. It also said that it would consider grants for farmers to invest in their own water resources and to reduce reliance on abstraction. The flexible approaches included allowing farmers to fill reservoirs in June, said Mr Hammett. This meant that farmers had been allowed to take water on application when there was sufficient water in their local river. More than 100 growers had made use of this, he added. Similarly, since 2018 growers had been able to trade their abstraction licence with a neighbour. “Water trading has been popular but you’ve

Encouraging farmers on the same river length to work together to minimise impact on the ecology of the river would be a better method of improving management of watercourses, Mr Hammett suggests.

got to be in right place at the right time for it to work. It is still a work in progress, but definitely a step in the right direction.” This was all very pertinent looking ahead to 2020 he said. “Groundwater is very important in East Anglia for agriculture and for the public water supply and rivers many of which are fed by aquifers. We are really worried about the prospect of a dry winter when we already have low levels in the aquifers. “We will be working very closely with the Environment Agency, abstraction groups and farmers on how we can best manage looking ahead to 2020.” The proposal to alter the Environment Agency’s powers to change abstraction licences is potentially a ‘big shift’, said Mr Hammett. “The Agency can already change or revoke abstraction licences but if it seeks to take away an historic right it has to compensate that abstractor. “The new powers make it possible for them to make changes without

compensating the licence holder.” This change could be contained in the Environment Bill which might be in place before the end of this year, he explained. If included in the Act it would come into force on 1st January 2028. “It is pretty bad news – farmers consider their abstraction licences to be an historic and legal right. And currently if a business loses its right, the impact is at least partly mitigated by compensation provision. If this disappears it leaves the business at a disadvantage.” In its response to the consultation Defra said that it recognises that licence holders consider abstraction licences to be a business asset and a property right: “We want to protect licence holders’ ability to abstract where it is fair and right to do so. As such, these powers would only be used by the Environment Agency after other solutions have been exhausted; we expect the Environment Agency

to work closely with the affected licence holder in these situations; and on a case by case basis.” The NFU made ‘a very robust’ submission to the government consultation said Mr Hammett. This included commenting on the suggestion that un-used licenses should be revoked. “Unused doesn’t always mean un-needed,” said Mr Hammett. “Farmers’ need for water is hugely variable based on the season and where we are in the crop rotation. “We think that there are better ways of improving the management of water courses through the voluntary approach that has already been started – encouraging farmers on the same river length to work together in ways to minimise impact on the ecology of the river. “Voluntary measures can succeed without the need for blanket regulation.” ■

Drainage & Irrigation Record year laying irrigation pipes It’s been another record year for Philip Millington Water Services which has laid over 65,000m of irrigation pipes in

the past 12 months. This has meant that drainage has had to take a back seat with all the

drainage machinery being stored undercover ready for coming out again this autumn. To keep up with demand the company has purchased another new 9t excavator to add to its kit which included 8t, 14t, 3cx and 1.8t excavators. It is also now running two low loaders to keep the machinery in the right place. James Hunt has been promoted to oversee all of the installations giving Richard Millington more time to see customers to design and sell products. Another busy year for Philip Millington Water Services.

“Brexit is very slowly coming upon us and currently the pound is slowly falling to the Euro,” said Richard. “This is going to make our irrigation products more expensive as most come from abroad.” He urges potential customers to make enquiries soon if they are interested in new equipment. Underground irrigation mains are currently holding on price but are also forecast to increase in price, he warned. To combat any worries about supply the company is going to hold a quantity of pipe in stock. Philip Millington Water Services is also agent for Briggs Irrigation equipment. ■

The risk of working with high pressure water and hydrant tops One of the hazards of working with water at high pressure is the damage it causes when a pipe bursts. Also the hydrant tap becoming disconnected when a hydrant is opened in a pressurised main line pipe. The team at Wroot Water has started modifying hydrants and putting a lever valve in the riser

that is between two flanges. This eliminates being directly over the hydrant top when opening the hydrant therefore reducing the risk of injury if the hydrant top comes off. Wroot Water is conscious of making safety the main priority as any accident that can be prevented is good for the industry, said the

company. In the irrigation season when under high work pressure, it is easy to forget high water pressure. We are able to give a full evaluation on site and can modify any hydrant riser to the new Wroot dual valve safety system, added Wroot Water. ■ The Wroot Water Dual Valve Safety System.

Land Drainage–2019

Data led decisions are playing an ever important part in determining both the need for drainage in the first place, as well as the benefits that drainage schemes are providing post installation. William Morfoot managing director Tim Sisson said: “Many of our clients are using tools such as yield mapping, satellite and drone imagery and other tools to accurately identify the potential benefits of land drainage investment. “When married together with the recognition that many drainage schemes are now extremely tired and past their best, along with the ever growing issue of black-grass presence, the rapid return on investment from new land drainage infrastructure

is increasingly attractive to many landowners. “On top of that, the proposed changes to the BPS scheme mean that farmers are looking closely at how to achieve the most from their land at the moment. The yield uplift which new drainage schemes offer makes the decision an easy one to justify in the face of falling farm incomes and rising costs elsewhere in arable agriculture.” Norfolk-based William Morfoot delivers comprehensive land drainage schemes including all design and installation work to farm businesses across the UK. Works include design and surveying, land drain installation, ditch maintenance and wider drainage infrastructure improvements. ■

Investing in new or improved land drainage brings many benefits to the farm, says William Moorfoot.

West Yorkshire drainage specialist WT Knowles & Sons has been supplying the farming community since 1906. The company produces clay land drains as well as a range of clay drainage pipes, gullies, traps, interceptors, grease traps and channel fittings. It also manufactures salt glazed products, which the company says can last for centuries. Its channel pipes and manger tubes can be used as feeding troughs for cattle and other livestock. The end of a crop rotation – or a dry spell – is the ideal opportunity to lay new land drains, it advises. Removing surplus water from the land improves soil structure and prevents problems caused by waterlogging, directly benefitting with higher yields,

extending the grazing season and reducing costs. Free-draining soil enhances seed germination as a result of faster warming, allowing stronger crop establishment. New regulations, effective in January 2020 mean that the farmer can no longer discharge from a septic tank to a watercourse directly. To comply with new regulations, farmers must either swap the septic tank to a sewage treatment plant or install a drainage field soakaway system. Clay is the ideal drainage material for the farming community, says WT Knowles. It is extremely strong, retains its shape, withstands varying temperatures and is environmentally friendly. ■

Fenland potato trials show value of integrated agronomy The crop safety of post-emergence herbicides was one of many topics under the spotlight at the Fenland demonstration.

tolerance. “The really interesting detail will come when we measure the yield impact and see how G. pallida varietal resistance affects final PCN count after harvest,” commented Mr Keer. “The ideal would be to grow a variety with good PCN tolerance, and resistance to both species, that is also accepted by end users. That’s not always possible, but the judicious use of resistant varieties and other integrated controls could buy flexibility to grow non-resistant varieties where necessary.” The move to a new site for the third year of the Hutchinsons Fenland Potato demonstration is already generating interesting results that will help shape future agronomy. Integrated Potato Cyst Nematode (PCN) management, post-emergence herbicide crop safety, and seed age and planting date trials again took centre stage at the open day in July, hosted at AL Lee Farming Company’s Folly Farm near Ely. Parts of the site were under higher PCN pressure than last year’s venue, nearby Friesland Farm, which meant clear differences had already emerged in the varietal resistance and tolerance trials, said Richard Austin Agriculture’s John Keer. Pre-planting assessments found an initial PCN count of up to 164 eggs/g soil, all of which was the Globodera pallida species. “It’s a slightly more mineral soil than the rich black

Fenland at Friesland Farm, so doesn’t offer as much resilience to the effects of PCN damage, which is helping highlight differences in our trials.” Some 18 varieties were planted on 15th April and each was being compared with and without a nematicide (fosthiazate). “PCN levels are consistently high across the trial area, which is bringing out differences in variety tolerance. We will take crops to harvest to see how yield is affected,” Mr Keer explained. “By measuring PCN populations pre-planting and after harvest, we will also be able to see how varietal resistance, or lack of, affects PCN multiplication in the soil.”

Tolerance Initial observations reinforced the view that tolerant varieties were generally those with more vigorous growth that produced larger root systems better

able to withstand feeding by larvae, he said. While tolerant varieties could withstand feeding damage and still yield well in the presence of PCN, without resistance, they would let cyst numbers multiply over the season. “Tolerance and resistance are not linked. PCN still feeds on the roots of resistant varieties and those with low tolerance can therefore suffer quite a lot of damage, even if the crop’s resistance prevents new cysts forming.” At Folly Farm, varieties that had so far showed good PCN tolerance (i.e. little visible difference between treated and untreated plots) included Arsenal, Brooke, Cara, Performer, Rock and Royal. In contrast, Maris Peer, Innovator and Sagitta exhibited more noticeable effects indicating lower

Herbicide effects The third year of the crop safety from post-emergence herbicides trial again showed noticeable differences between varieties, Hutchinsons root crop technical manager Darryl Shailes (left) said. The impact on vigour and necrosis/ chlorosis of four different post-em herbicides on seven varieties had been assessed, and results generally supported findings from previous seasons. “There’s always potential for some crop damage from post-emergence herbicides, but the extent is varietyspecific.” For example, bentazone had been consistently aggressive on Agria, continued over...

causing noticeable scorch. Markies also suffered more scorch from bentazone than in previous seasons, potentially because the crop was under stress at the time of application, he said. In contrast, Innovator was more tolerant of bentazone, but was susceptible to damage from metribuzin. Other varieties such as Performer and Royal showed minor effects and generally grew away well. “We set up the trial to look at

yield effects across the varieties to see if scorch or vigour reduction has a significant effect. Unfortunately, plots got waterlogged twice so establishment wasn’t as we would have liked so it will difficult to draw conclusions in terms of yield. “However, this work gives us greater confidence to make recommendations to our clients, even where applications may not be supported by herbicide manufacturers,” Mr Shailes added.

The challenges presented by next year’s ban on chlorpropham (CIPC) were another talking point at the Fenland demonstration. AHDB potatoes’ David Wilson said there was limited alternative sprout suppressants until dimethylnaphalene (DMN) was granted UK approval, and growers would have to be careful with those that were available; namely spearmint oil and ethylene. Unlike CIPC, both were volatile products that could be more easily blown from stores if ventilation was needed after treatment. An added complication was that both spearmint oil and ethylene were usually more effective where maleic hydrazide had been used in the crop. “Skin set and crop health going into store will be key, as will ensuring you have the correct airflow around the store.” Mr Wilson also highlighted work AHDB was doing to support a more “sensible” approach to Maximum Residue Limits (MRLs) after CIPC is withdrawn. Currently, the EU could reset the MRL to the “limit of quantification” of just 0.01ppm. However, the persistence of CIPC in the fabric of many stores meant some could exceed such a low MRL and a more gradual reduction from the current limit was needed, he said. AHDB tests of 11 bulk and box stores with different histories of using CIPC found residues ranged from 0.052–0.360ppm. “Manufacturers do very little research on varietal impact and when they do it tends to be ultra-cautious.”

Fine-tuning seed choices The seed age and planting date trial, run by Farmacy’s Stefan Williams, further examined how differences in planting date and chronological age of three Scottish Maris Piper seed lots (one chitted and two non-chitted)

affected marketable yield and quality. “Old” seed was seed crops with a 50 per cent emergence date of 15th May, whereas “young” seed was 5th June. Test digs reinforced previous work showing that younger seed produced more tubers than older seed and that chitting seed before planting produced fewer tubers across all three planting dates (15th April, 1st May and 16th May). Plots will be taken to

Potatoes harvest to see the effect on yield and tuber size. “Buying the right seed lot and protecting chits during planting makes a big difference,” said Mr Williams. “Older seed, consistently over the last three years of trials has produced 20 per cent fewer tubers than ‘younger’ seed. Targeting ‘older’ seed stocks means we are reducing our tubers per plant ratio, therefore achieving a higher proportion of 75mm+ tubers for chipping and processing.” Mr Williams continued: “When I first came to the farm five years ago, growing chitted Maris Piper seed was quite common for later planting. But

it can be hard not to damage chits even on modern planters. Our work shows in some cases only 20 per cent of chitted seed planted remains undamaged. Potentially you can double tuber number where the chit hasn’t been knocked off compared with one that has. “If we don’t chit seed, it can be challenging to spread planting dates and our trials suggest if we were to change to mid-May planting of unchitted Piper, we could have higher numbers of smaller potatoes. If the business stays with chitted seed, we need stronger chits and gentler handling to protect them and avoid tubers wasting energy producing chits that get knocked off.” ■

No-till potato trials show role in soil regeneration No-till potatoes grown under a straw mulch could help farmers to restore degraded arable soils costeffectively if used as a cash crop within a regenerative cropping rotation, according to ProCam agronomist Richard Harding. Presenting results from a fouryear trial at the recent Groundswell conservation agriculture event, Mr Harding said revenue from the potatoes would offset the cost of importing straw, creating a viable route to more sustainable production. “Our first step was to grow a high biomass cover crop,” he said, “as this is an essential entry into the no-till potatoes. Then, we placed the potato tubers on the surface and created a mulch by unrolling and fluffing up round bale straw at a rate of around 34t/ha. Through this method, we achieved a potato crop of 46t/ha of saleable tubers, so about 75 per cent of a normal crop yield but without the high cost of conventional cultivations.

so finding a market for mid-range potatoes will help to maximise the returns, or the system would work well for producing seed potatoes. “Following potatoes, we’ve strip tilled the ground and established wide-row crops, such as maize or pumpkins, using a drill with row cleaners to overcome the remaining straw residues.” Mr Harding believes there is enough evidence to now look at commercialisation of the methodology. “One of the biggest challenges in making our soils more resilient is to build soil organic matter levels in a way that is practical and financially viable,” he adds. “If we can do this, we can capture all the inherent benefits this brings in terms of improved moisture retention, better nutrient use efficiency, reduced draft requirement at planting, and lastly the most important benefit of improving

the biological activity of the soil. “We’ve shown what’s possible on a small scale, so now we need to apply some existing technologies,

Offering a range of equipment for the grower... Prins forklifts have recently moved into the potato growing market with the supply of a Prins Tiger semi rough terrain machine to local potato producer Gower Farm Services Ltd from Folkestone. Having used a conventional forklift and telehandler in the past, owners Adrian and Lev Gower wanted something more suitable for every day use rather than continually swapping machines. In addition, they wanted to leave less of a ‘footprint’ when the ground is wet or soft and to that end the Prins Tiger has exceeded all expectations. ’Even across my lawn the Prins machine leaves virtually no footprint’ says Adrian. Lev Gower seen, in the photo, shows how stable the Tiger is lifting six bins high in the chill store. Thanks to Gower Farm Services Ltd for the order! ‘The Prins range of equipment has such a low gross vehicle weight, combined with large pneumatic tyres, that they cope so well both on and off road’ explains Prins Managing Director Mark Dorman. ‘We have been so successful supplying the Prins Tiger & Boxer to top fruit growers around the UK that other producers are also now seeing the benefits of a lighter weight machine that causes little or no damage to orchards, fields and softer ground. The Prins range starts from 1000kgs to 2500kgs capacity and with the addition of our badged 4x4 machine we can now enter almost any application coupled with the Cesab range of conventional forklifts and warehouse range.’

Potatoes Spearmint sprout suppressant offers alternative to CIPC Following the announcement of the withdrawal of approval for CIPC as a sprout suppressant on potatoes in store, the industry has been rushing to learn about how to get the best from alternatives. Biox-M has been used successfully on a wide range of British potato varieties since it was first approved a decade ago. Its use has been widespread in the fresh market and organic crops, however the processing sector has been slower to look at the alternatives, says the manufacturer. Trials using Biox-M in large commercial processing stores on the continent have proved successful, and a number of British growers of processing crops are undertaking commercial scale

trials with the 2019 crop. Biox-M is 100 per cent naturally occurring spearmint oil, extracted from leaves of spearmint by on-farm steam distillation, followed by separation and blending to ensure an even (and minimum 70 per cent) concentration of the active L-Carvone. It suppresses sprouting in potatoes by causing local necrosis of the bud meri-stem with no visible damage to the skin of the tuber. The product is approved for use on organic potato crops and can be used in multi-use stores. As well as fresh potatoes it can also be used on processing crops stored at up to 10ºC, which allows store managers to address concerns about the development of acrylamide. It is applied to stores as

Potatoes Harvester offers improved efficiency

The Ploeger AR4-BX 4-row potato harvester with 14t bunker.

The AR range of 3- and 4-row root crop harvesters from Ploeger has been designed for gentle operations while maintaining operational efficiency. The wide body design ensures minimal web narrowing throughout the machine, as crops pass to the various haulm, soil, stone and clod removal options that are available. Ploeger’s UK subsidiary, PMC Harvesters, area sales manager Steven Skipper said that growers were worried about harvest machinery dealing with excessive haulm: “This has led to improved separation systems and some machines being supplied with inspection webs fitted for as many as six picking staff. “A high proportion of UK crop is

being sent straight from the field to processors and packers. By removing the necessity to transport crop back to the farmyard, to be subjected to another cleaning and manual inspection process, is an attractive feature for many growers.” The holding hopper which has 14t capacity has also proved popular with farmers he said. The Ploeger’s capacity to drive in very heavy conditions allows some growers to utilise the harvester to take the crop to the headlands and verges and unload into the waiting trailers, so avoiding unnecessary trailer movements on the fields. High manoeuvrability is achieved with 48º steering on the front axle and 18º rear steering on the Claas tracks. ■

New box filler extends handling range Vegetable handling equipment specialist Haith has extended its range of box fillers, with the launch of the Supa-Fill 400 Pro box filler. Capable of filling up to 40 boxes per hour, the Supa-Fill 400 comes with an Omron NB 3 HMI control screen, giving the user fingertip access to the machine’s advanced functions, including manual and fully automatic box filling, box height selection, lifetime and batch counting for stock recording and assisting with maintenance scheduling. As well as the HMI screen, the Supa-Fill 400 also offers variable speed control as standard and a flat belt with fall retarders which provide better cushioning to the crop compared to machines using cleats or door stops. The Supa-Fill 400 accommodates boxes from 900-1200mm in height. Its self-levelling sensors ensures consistently even filling, says Haith. “We’ve taken our class-

leading box filler and improved it,” says Haith UK sales Ken Hollingsworth. “The result is a machine that offers the best possible handling, works quickly and efficiently and features advanced functionality as standard.” As well as improving the features found on the machine, Haith has also extended the warranty from one to two years at no extra cost. The company showcased the SupaFill 400 Pro as well as its RotaTip S along with mobile graders and washers at last month’s Potatoes in Practice event in Dundee. It was the company’s 11th consecutive appearance at the event. ■ The Supa-Fill 400 Pro from Haith.

Potatoes High precision GPS for farming Picture courtesy of Frederick Hiam Ltd.

Using GPS provided by RTKF Net (formerly RTK Farming) has helped one East Anglian business improve the efficiency of its potato production. Tom Pask of Frederick Hiam has been using the service for five years. “For our potato crops we do all our ridging with RTK. This has allowed us to eliminate narrow beds and ensure that they are the same width, therefore maximising the number of beds in the field and production. “The accuracy and repeatability of RTK allows operators to concentrate on the operation behind the tractor ensuring depths are correct and ridges are perfect,

confident in the knowledge that the tractor is exactly where it should be.” The RTK is then used on the planter to follow the AB lines created by the ridger, reducing initial in-field setup and ensuring that the operator can concentrate on the planting and not on the position of the tractor, he adds. “This is time and energy efficient and greatly reduces driver fatigue. “Finally we use RTK on the sprayer, combined with auto section control and shut-off, we have seen a reduction in inputs and the corresponding costs that come with this.” ■

Bringing old harvesters back to life Lincolnshire-based Steve Thorley is often asked to service and repair potato harvesters by growers who can’t justify the expense of a new machine. As well as a large range of machinery for every budget, he has staff, a fleet of vans and access to parts for every major brand of potato equipment. “We’re not just about Reekie,” says Steve. “Our history is with sales and service of any brand. Geographically speaking, we’re sat within easy reach of most of the major manufacturers of in-field and in-store equipment that are working in the UK. “Our 26 years of business and OEM activities have provided the knowledge to source directly from parts manufacturers or alternative suppliers. This helps us stay competitive. Genuine parts are always an option.” A current project has taken this approach to the next level, says Steve. “A customer approached us with the intention of buying a good specification harvester that

had been through the wars and available at auction for not much more than ‘breaking for parts’ prices. Once delivered to our yard, following a thorough appraisal, the customer gave us the green light to start work. “The harvester is still in progress but, upon completion the customer has the option of an excellent fresh harvester for not so much more than the price of a comprehensive service, or treating it as an investment, a machine to sell on.” ■

A current project for Steve Thorley is to revitalise a potato harvester bought by a customer at auction.

Potatoes New dealer for potato kit in East Anglia Worcestershire based vegetable specialist Edwards Farm Machinery has teamed up with RWL Services which will be representing the manufacturer for Haulm Pulveriser sales in East Anglia. Available in single bed 2-row or 3-bed 6-row hydraulic folding versions, the Edwards potato Haulm Pulveriser overcomes the expensive need for cross conveyors as there are three stationary knives. Being fitted with three stationary knives allows the machine to create

a very fine chopped haulm, the manufacturer explains. The haulm will then easily drop through the web and haulm rollers of the harvester. The Haulm Pulveriser is fitted with 5V belts transmitting over 100hp to the rotor. Customers can have the machine fitted with all long flails for flat beds, or shaped flails for ridged beds. The machine can also be fitted with deflectors to deflect the haulm away from the ridges. ■


Suffolk machinery dealer RWL Services will now be offering the Edwards Haulm Pulveriser to customers in East Anglia.

Improving traceability of potato crops

The Track and Trace system from Tolsma offers improved traceability of produce.

This month sees the first ever Tolsma Track and Trace system installed in the UK, on a Lincolnshire farm close to Farm Electronics headquarters on the outskirts of Grantham. The system provides an actual overview of the store and improved traceability of the product. Each box is fitted with an electronic tag with a unique ID number. This allows for adding information about variety, size and supplier to each individual box. From filling to emptying, every


box movement is registered and stored. There is a terminal mounted onto the forklift which recognises which box it is moving and in turn sends this signal to a server via Wi-Fi. The big advantage is that there is always an overview of the amount of stored and available products and, as well as providing location information, it also allows recording of quality, size and position in store. The system is split into four stages: receiving, removing, grading and delivery. The central server

contains the software and the database of Tolsma Track and Trace. Top and side views of the store can be shown on the terminal screen on the forklifts. The system requires Wi-Fi coverage throughout the store, processing and grading areas of the farm. Wi-Fi antennae are mounted onto the forklifts in the terminal and these then connect to the Wi-Fi access points which are mounted in the store where the forklift operates. ■

High capacity filler ticks all the boxes down under A new twin-head box filler manufactured by UK handling specialist Tong Engineering is being put through its paces by a seed potato processor in Tasmania. The MonstaFill is the latest in a series of new product developments from Tong. It is designed to gently and evenly fill 1 or 2t boxes and is maximising throughput capacity for Cherry Hill Coolstores in northern Tasmania. Cherry Hill Coolstores purchased its new seed potato intake system through Tong’s official dealer for Australia and New Zealand, Dobmac Machinery. Processing over 15,000t of seed potatoes annually, Cherry Hill operates between the seed grower and the main crop grower. “For the potato seed grower we unload, apply fungicides, grade and prepare their seed for certification,” explains the company’s Andrew Langmaid. “For the seed buyers and main crop growers, we store the seed until planting season, and then prepare the potatoes for planting.” “With the volume of seed coming

to Cherry Hill, we needed to upgrade our intake system,” he says. “The new installation from Tong features a very similar set-up, albeit it much higher capacity, more advanced and energy efficient than our previous intake system, but it is the new MonstaFill box fillers that have really taken our capacity potential to the next level.” The MonstaFill has reduced forklift requirements, which has


increased the speed by which the company is processing crop into boxes, he explains. “Our complete intake system from Tong feeds 2 MonstaFill box fillers, one for 1t boxes and the other for 2t boxes, and we are now pretty much guaranteed that when a fully loaded bulker lorry arrives on our site, it will be driving back, unloaded in under an hour,” says Andrew.

The MonstaFill box fillers are performing extremely well with the discharge mechanism ensuring an even fill of each box, and the integrated weight indicators transfer the data for each box directly into our crop statistics database. This has given us great gains in efficiency and will be a major tool for us keeping our costs down moving forwards.” ■

The rise of the purple sweet potato The past decade has seen the UK demand for sweet potatoes quadruple with current sales standing at £94 million annually. Andrea Sharp reports on a vibrant variety.

According to the American Sweet Potato Marketing Institute’s Sue Johnson-Langdon, “sweet potatoes have graduated from a specialty item to a mainstream product, registering a growth in popularity not only in the UK but across Europe.” In 2010, the purple Okinawan sweet potato was particularly highlighted as being one of the top superfoods to rapidly increase in popularity with British consumers over the next decade. This vibrantly purple root vegetable, a locally grown staple of Hawaiian and Japanese cuisine, is rich in flavour and packed with nutritional benefits. The plant contains 150 per cent more antioxidants than blueberries, helping to guard against cardiovascular diseases as well as cancer. It is rich in vitamins A, C and E, low in fat containing only 90 calories per 100g and even the leaves can be used as a spinach

substitute. Other than their vibrant colour, another thing that makes purple sweet potatoes so unique is that they don’t metabolise quickly in the body, eliminating the chance of a sugar rush that you would generally expect with white potatoes. The BBC documentary ‘How to Stay Young’ looked into claims that purple sweet potatoes can help you live until 100. Professor Craig Wilcox has been studying the Okinawan diet for the past decade, where life expectancy is 10 years higher than in the UK, and where there are currently more than 400 centenarians alive and well today. “I believe a key factor in their vigorous health can be attributed to the vegetable” Professor Wilcox says. “Sweet potatoes have been a go-to food for the Okinawans for a long time. They are easy to

The purple sweet potato’s vibrant colour can be attributed to its rich content of the natural antioxidant, anthocyanin.

grow, very economical to produce and are powerhouses of nutrition.” As each Okinawan consumes over half a kilo of purple sweet potatoes a day, “it’s not an ice cream truck that visits your street, it’s the sweet potato truck”, he concluded. During the documentary, tests were carried out back in the UK, which revealed the purple sweet potato contains high levels of anthocyanins, a natural compound with powerful antioxidant effects. “There is good scientific evidence that these compounds are beneficial to keeping a healthy blood flow”

revealed one scientist from the University of Norwich. Typically imported from Southern US states, Egypt, Senegal and Israel, the sweet potato relies on warm and dry growing conditions. North Carolina, the USA’s biggest sweet potato growing state, was hit by two hurricanes last year, putting strain on UK supply. However, following a 2015 development in crop innovation by Hill Farm in Kent, the standard sweet potato is now also grown here in the UK with the aid of polythene-covered raised ■ outdoor beds.

The Royal Welsh celebrates its 100th show Since the very first show held in Aberystwyth in 1904, the Royal Welsh Show has evolved throughout the years to become one of the biggest agricultural shows in Europe, celebrating the very best of Welsh and British agriculture and produce. This year livestock entries numbered over 8,000, with exhibitors converging on the showground in Mid Wales from across the UK and further afield, all hoping to go home with a coveted Royal Welsh rosette.

David and Sue Knight, who farm just outside Bristol, enjoyed great success in the British Blonde pedigree classes with their home-bred cattle, taking Male Champion with three year old bull Doncombe Mulungu and Breed Champion with three year old heifer Doncombe Madhu. 

The Supreme Interbreed Champion Sheep of the Show was this Texel ewe lamb belonging to Geoff Wray and Jennifer Aiken from Lancaster.  For its 100 Year Show, the Royal Welsh Agricultural Society decided to celebrate its Centenary with a Supreme Champion of Champions. Retiring Show Director Harry Fetherstonhaugh was invited to judge and having awarded this very special prize to the Supreme Interbreed Champion Pig, he is pictured here presenting the trophy and other prizes to Gussie Harmer from Lewes, East Sussex for her Welsh gilt.

which can then be used by the arable crops that follow in the rotation.” Growing consecutive cereal crops is becoming more challenging. “There are issues surrounding pest and disease control, and soil structure and condition warrants attention on many arable units,” he adds. “Rotations with forage crops are now far more sustainable than some of our previous arable practices.” Fast-growing brassicas and root crops, and short-term grass leys can be sown post-harvest to give a break in the cereal rotation, as well as providing a valuable feed crop. “Roots and brassicas can be grazed off ahead of a spring crop, or before a grass reseed. And leaving a grass ley down for two years or more will help break the black-grass cycle.” Forage crops with higher yields and feed value add to the attractiveness of using them as an arable break, he says. “Farmers could consider the new rape/kale hybrid variety Unicorn that can be sown until late August. It has produced energy values of 11.2 MJ/kg of dry matter and dry matter contents

of 12.4 per cent on our Lincolnshire trial site, making it one of the UK’s best performing rape/kale hybrid brassicas.” This fast-growing leafy catch crop should be ready for grazing within 14 weeks. Sown after cereals, it will give an ideal feed for finishing lambs, ewes or dairy cattle early winter. “Stubble turnips and forage rape are two more crops that can be sown up until the end of August. They’re also quick to establish and some hardier varieties can be left for grazing over winter.” A crop of stubble turnips after winter barley can be used for finishing lambs. It’s ready for grazing by the end

of October, and a hectare of stubble turnips will provide 40 days of grazing for 100 lambs. “This is ideal for finishing lambs early in the season, when prices tend to be higher,” he adds. And if we have a dry autumn, Mr Titley suggests those with mixed units look at forage rye that can be sown as late as October, following maize or cereals. “This gives an early bite in spring, up to three weeks ahead of Italian ryegrass. “Yields are typically between 5 and 6t of dry matter per hectare. Some farmers will graze the crop, but it can also be cut for forage and stored, boosting conserved feed supplies.” ■

Catch crop considerations

• • • •

Look at the crops available. Tailor your catch crop and the area required to match livestock feed requirements. Look at growing costs verses feed value, a good catch crop provides a cost-effective winter forage. Look at the varieties on offer – some are better than others in yield disease resistance and winter hardiness. UK trial results show significant differences. For example, there is a 20 per cent yield difference between some stubble turnip varieties. This equates to more than 1t/ha of dry matter.

The system is automatically activated when the Polydrive is engaged and can also be armed or disabled via an in-cab switch.  ■

A new dust control system available on straw bedding equipment is now available from Kuhn Farm Machinery. The Cleanstraw system is available on new equipment, or as a retrofit upgrade for existing machines. It reduces dust in livestock buildings by applying a fine mist of water to straw as it is distributed. It comprises a 64-litre water tank and 3 misting nozzles fed by a pump which provides water at a flow rate to apply 1 litre of water per 100kg of straw, without slowing the machine’s normal performance. “Reducing the amount of dust in livestock buildings has a number of advantages,” said Kuhn’s James

Farmers Guide 40 Years Ago It was 40 years ago in September 1979 when the first East Anglian Farmers Guide, printed in Felixstowe, was delivered free to selected farms in Norfolk, Suffolk, Essex and Cambridgeshire. Doug Potts, previously advertisement manager of the East Anglian Daily Times since 1969, launched the new farming magazine. He was ably assisted by his wife Florence who looked after the farming diary in the magazine. September 1979 was a busy month in the Farmers Guide with several farm machinery demonstrations across East Anglia.

Suffolk Farm Machinery Club’s Power in Action event at Otley featured balers, bale handling and reversible ploughs. Entries included the Howard BigBaler which cost £6,995, the McConnel Bale packer system at £6,200, a 90hp Belarus 820 tractor with £8,200 price tag and a Roadless 98K priced at £16,300 with a Ransomes 3f plough. The Trantor high speed tractor with 10 forward and 2 reverse synchromesh gears, front and rear suspension, a 2-speed power take-off and a £13,500 price tag made its Suffolk debut at the event. A preview of the forthcoming October Fisons Sprayers ’79 demonstration at Peterborough gave details of the very latest spraying machinery. Thurlow Nunn introduced a new Evrard sprayer, Allman demonstrated its latest 14m model with hydraulically folding booms, Key and Pell showed its new trailed Condor, and Ransomes had a full range of mounted and

trailed sprayers. Farmers at Sprayers ’79 needing a high output sprayer with work rates of 400ha or more in a day were invited to look at the new self-propelled Melroe Spra-Coupe. Two direct drilling demonstrations in Norfolk and Suffolk, arranged by the ICI Plant Protection division were also previewed in the September 1979 East Anglian Farmers Guide. Described as a relatively new technique, farmers would be able to compare the work done by several machines including the Moore Uni-drill, the MF 30, the Bettinson DD and TC direct drills. The Farm Machinery News in September 1979 reminded farmers they should burn their unwanted straw strictly in accordance with the NFU Straw and Stubble Burning Code. Tairco Ltd at Norwich had been appointed importer for the Danish Rational Nova 2-row sugar beet harvester with the capacity to lift up to 40ha of sugar beet during a single harvesting season. A Northamptonshire company was importing two models of L. Sgorbati pick-up baler from Italy. Both had a wide pick-up, a ram running on ball bearings and automatic lubrication. Prices started at £3,230. More than 7,000 farmers had attended the annual Lincoln Tractor Trials ploughing event. Fifty or so tractors took

part in the Long Sutton trial where a 325hp Steiger ST325 with a £40,910 price tag achieved the top work rate of 4.4ha an hour. A Fiat 120C recorded 1.9ha an hour and a DB Case 2090 in the 2wd section ploughed 1.3ha in one hour.

John Deere Model H Although Illinois blacksmith John Deere made his first steel plough in 1837, his interest in tractor production was delayed until 1918 when he bought the Waterloo Gasoline Tractor Co and sold the Waterloo Boy Model N and R tractors in America. Waterloo Boy tractors were marketed in the UK by Associated Manufacturers as the Overtime Model N and Model R when they were superseded in 1923 by the John Deere Model D, the first of many green and yellow tractors with horizontal twin cylinder engines. It was improved with a 24-37hp engine and 3-speed gearbox in 1935 and from 1939 to 1953 the Model D had a 30–38hp engine. Several other John Deere tractors including the rowcrop Model C, tricycle-wheeled Model A and 12–16hp Model B appeared in the 1930s. The ‘styled’ Model H, so-called because it had a bonnet and

Machinery adverts from the first issue of Farmers Guide September 1979.

25 years ago More recently, in September 1994, the Farmers Guide carried a fourpage advertisement for the latest New Holland TF and TX combines. The range topping TF78 Elektra had a twin flow rotary separation system and fibre optic electronic controls. New equipment at Norfolk Farm Machinery Club’s Normac demonstration in September that year included a 10f Dowdeswell reversible plough, a new 3m Lely Roterra power harrow, a multi-tined cultivator from Ferrag and the latest Challenger rubber track crawlers. Following the decision to replace the annual Earls Court tractor and machinery show with a biennial event, the Royal Smithfield Club announced it had agreed to run a new stock show in London in 1995. Ernest Cozens was concerned about the demise of the Potato Marketing Board and Minister for Agriculture Gillian Shepherd was transferring to a new post. In Farm Machinery News, Same announced 2 new Antares 4wd models with 110 and 130hp engines and Garford Farm Machinery launched the 1.5m wide Rotatop

radiator grille giving it a more modern appearance than earlier models, was launched in 1939. The Model H had a twin cylinder horizontal engine which developed 12.5hp at the drawbar and 14.8hp at the belt pulley. The tractor had a three forward and one reverse gearbox with a top speed of 5.75mph, and the foot throttle override mechanism gave a speed of 7.50mph for road work. The specification included a hand-operated dry disc clutch and adjustable wheel spacing. Optional extras included electric starting and lights and the alternative Model HN with a single front wheel appeared in 1940. The last John Deere Model H tractors were made in 1947. ■

Henry Brown’s Vintage Diary

Defoliator for topping potatoes. The world’s first self-propelled big square baler made its Eastern Counties debut in Cambridgeshire. The Deutz-Fahr Power Press with an 8.40m wide pickup which collected 2 straw swaths made bales 1.20m wide, 0.85m high and from 1.20 to 2.50m long. It had a 223hp Deutz air-cooled diesel engine, hydrostatic transmission and cost £132,500. Combine harvester yield mapping was also featured in the September 1979 Farmers Guide. Suffolk MF dealer TNS had erected a mast at its Elmswell branch so that local farmers could connect with it, measure grain flow through the machine and create yield maps for individual fields. ■

About People New agricultural partner for Wilts and Somerset Mike Butler, former chairman of Old Mill, has become the new agricultural partner for PKF Francis

Yara appoints Rebecca as Area Manager Rebecca Pearce has been appointed area manager for Yorkshire, Cleveland and County Durham for Yara. Her role will involve working with farmers around the North of England to maximise their crop’s potential, backed by Yara’s extensive range of fertiliser products. Rebecca has almost 10 years experience in the agriculture industry and joins Yara following

nearly five years as farm business manager at Openfield, one of the largest grain supplier co-operatives in the UK, and supplier to some of the biggest and well-known brands. “Rebecca is a fantastic addition to the team,” says Darren Glegg, business manager, liquid and foliar products at Yara UK. “She brings with her a wealth of experience and keen insight into the opportunities and challenges facing British farmers currently.”

Two new appointments have been made to Kuhn Farm Machinery’s sales and technical support in the UK. John Hulland has been appointed area sales manager covering the central counties of England. He is working with Kuhn dealerships across this region, providing wide-ranging support for the company’s range of equipment that now includes ploughs, cultivators, power harrows, drills, sprayers, grassland machinery, fertiliser spreaders, feeder wagons and straw bedders. A trained agricultural service engineer with a background in practical farming, John has held previous positions as a territory manager and has experience in all aspects of technical

support, event management and training provision. Alex Birchall has joined the company as part of its established product specialist team, focussing on the company’s sprayer, fertiliser spreader, shredder and electronics ranges. Having graduated with a first class honours degree in agricultural engineering, Alex has gained valuable experience working on progressive arable units and in a machinery dealership, developing specific expertise in areas of precision farming. Within his role at Kuhn, he is involved in product development, promotion and technical support to the sales team and the dealer network.
