Out & About Forty years of publishing a farming magazine has been no small feat. So as an acknowledgement of our small team’s talent and hardwork, we enjoyed an evening sail along Suffolk’s picturesque River Orwell. Aboard the historic Thames Barge Thistle, our Farmers Guide team sailed gently along while learning about the history of the 124-year-old vessel, and how it carried coal from the Humber to the Thames, using nothing but the wind. At a time of looking back, we are also looking ahead and will be formally welcoming a number of new additions to our team in November. We are bringing aboard a few new faces so that we can continue to grow our magazine and produce more of what makes us so unique. We’ll introduce our new team members properly in the November issue. To make up for the lack of jokes in previous issues, we return with two this month. Both are from the archives, and those who remember FG’s founder Doug Potts will know he liked to sail close to the wind with his humour! The following joke was published in 2003, and you’ll find the other at the end of our Brexit article, written by long-time

reader and farming advocate, Andrea Sharp.

And Finally… There was a real and tangible air of fear and mystery reigning over a London hospital's intensive care unit. It seemed that patients always died in a particular bed, regardless of their medical condition. This puzzled the doctors and some even thought it had a supernatural connection. No one could solve the mystery as to why the deaths always occurred at 11am on Sundays. So a world-wide team of experts assembled to investigate the cause of the incidents. The next Sunday morning, a few minutes before 11am, all the doctors and nurses nervously waited outside the ward to see for themselves what the terrible phenomenon was all about. Some were holding wooden crosses, prayer books and other holy objects to ward off evil spirts. Just when the clock struck 11, Billy Johnson, the part time Sunday cleaner, entered the ward and unplugged the life support system so he could vacuum. ■

CARRY ON? Suffolk farmer’s wife and writer Andrea Sharp searches through the Brexit haystack for an answer. The on-going negotiations and current political paralysis surrounding the UK’s exit of the European Union on the 31st October, with or without a deal, leaves British farmers in a state of confusion. With employment boasting more than 4 million people and contributing £122B to the UK economy each year, British agriculture is arguably the main industry at risk of being hit the hardest by the uncertainties of Brexit. Back in June, NFU president Minette Batters sent an open letter to all Conservative party leadership candidates asking parliament to recognise the strategic importance of British agriculture. “The next Prime Minister must commit to doing everything in their power to avoid a hugely damaging no-deal Brexit, given the enormous economic damage this would entail for our food and farming sectors, the wider economy and the people of the UK,” she wrote. Since then, Prime Minister Boris Johnson has attempted to dispel the so-called uncertainty of an ‘agricultural Armageddon’ promised by some political commentators, ensuring farmers will “have the support they need” after Brexit. Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs (Defra) Secretary Theresa Villiers is confident that parliament will protect the different sectors within the agricultural industry if Britain ‘crashes’ out of the EU. “In those circumstances we have said we will be prepared to intervene to provide additional financial support,” she said in an interview on 6th September 2019. However, this commitment to maintain

the same total funding for the farming sector during a no-deal scenario is only applicable until the next election, which could be later this year. Arguably, an impending change of government would throw the question of subsidy aid back into the ring. Following our exit from the EU, the UK will no longer be part of the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP), with the government designing and implementing a new domestic agricultural policy and regulatory arrangements. During an interim period of 2 years, farm businesses receiving up to £30,000 in the Basic Payment Scheme (BPS) will face a reduction of up to 5% and those receiving £150,000 or more will see a reduction of 25% by 2021. As various polls reflect, the regional voting behaviour of UK farmers during the EU referendum was very much dependent on the distribution of the EU’s less favoured area subsidies - where only 12% of English land qualifies for the subsidy, in comparison to 78% in Wales and 84% in Scotland. Therefore the geographical split in the Brexit vote by farmers could be seen as a reliance on BPS verses the hope of escaping red-tape EU bureaucracy. This current government has

stated that it will taper area payments to zero by 2028 with some of the funds that this releases being made available for the Environmental Land Management Scheme (ELMS). One of Defra’s key objectives is to ensure public money is used for public goods, with ‘particularly environmental outcomes’, therefore the new scheme will focus on improving biodiversity, maintaining the landscape, promoting soil quality and water management. However, the development of the ELMS scheme appears to be moving forward at a very slow pace. A recent National Audit Office (NAO) report has challenged timescales for delivery and emphasises the need for key decisions to be made in the right order to be successful. The NAO findings show that farmers will have little time to prepare for the pilot schemes as Defra has not yet made decisions about which environmental outcomes it will pay for or the rate it will pay. The government agency is not planning to set out its payment methodology until March 2020 and the payment rates until June 2020 - less than a year before sign-up for the pilot scheme. Perhaps the biggest concern facing British agriculture during a no-deal Brexit is the uncertain future of UK

42% of UK farms could make a loss without the aid of BPS

export tariffs. In January, National Sheep Association chief executive Phil Stocker said “Our big concerns about a no-deal Brexit, would be that we could very suddenly and immediately lose access to the EU market for British lamb. At the moment we would export 35% of our UK lamb crop and 96% of that volume goes into the EU, so a sudden loss of that market would be catastrophic for our industry.” Arguably, if the UK reverts back to World Trade Organisation tariffs, it could severely limit our export opportunities to our nearest customers. However, given time and released from EU trading constraints, this may well open up new and lucrative export markets to the rest of the world. NAO figures show that 42% of UK farms would have made a loss in recent years without the aid of BPS. So how can these farmers stay profitable after Brexit? This may be stating the obvious, but increasing efficiency by balancing machinery costs to farm scale and maximising crop margins is vital to any farm strategy. Now, it could be argued, is the time to encourage co-operation between neighbouring farms as a further positive step towards profitability. Also, diversifiction and investing current subsidies available into viable ventures and alternatives, as so many farms have already done, could also be lucrative and rewarding. With family farming roots deeply embedded across England and Scotland, I can appreciate the concerns and uncertainties from all sectors of our country-wide rural community. Whether you voted ‘in’ or ‘out’ and whether or not the UK concludes its membership with the EU on October 31st or later - Brexit will change the face of Britain forever. The future of our way of life lies in the hands of a turbulent Westminster, where all industries are competing for the spotlight. And so, in order to survive the Brexit negotiations, British farmers must band together at this time of uncertainty and demand stability for our industry. Contact your local MP and urge them to champion British farming. I say, keep calm and shout the loudest.

No change in slug control strategies despite ban overturn Good quality ferric phosphate baits are now providing crops with a reliable level of protection from slug damage, while avoiding issues with water.

The unprecedented legal challenge which overturned the metaldehyde slug pellet ban made headline news. However, there are some in the industry who have already moved on from the decision, and are less affected by the High Court order which formally overturned the December 2018 ruling. Heather Briggs reports. In general, the farming industry has moved on since metaldehyde was banned, says Frontier crop production technical lead Paul Fogg (right), who was heavily involved in the Metaldehyde Stewardship Group (MSG). Speaking about the overturning of the withdrawal of the active used for slug control, he said that one of the benefits of the Stewardship initiative was that it brought together all stakeholders with an interest in developing a sustainable position for metaldehyde. As a result, they worked together to deliver significant improvements to the way in which metaldehyde


was recommended and used, which ultimately afforded the industry with a long stay of execution of the active. Dr Fogg says: “The time with the Stewardship was put to good effect to ensure that a suitable alternative was put in place before the active was withdrawn. “Good quality ferric phosphate baits are now providing crops with a reliable level of protection from slug damage, while avoiding issues with water. “As such, we now have a new strategy which does not rely on metaldehyde.” Of course, he insists, this active also needs to be used responsibly, so growers still need to follow

an IPM strategy, looking at risk factors, trapping slugs and ensuring thresholds are hit before application. One of the concerns originally raised by many growers when ferric phosphate was first used on-farm was no visible signs of dead slugs and their trails on the surface following application, he says. Growers have now become accustomed to not seeing trails of slime as a sign of control. This is because the active ingredient works in a different way to metaldehyde, with the slugs going underground to die. Despite the move towards other slug control methods, having metaldehyde as a different mode of action will always be useful to reduce the reliance on a single mode of action and to help minimise the risk of resistance potentially developing, Dr Fogg points out. He believes some people may wish to use it early in the season, but his advice will be to follow the new strategy using ferric phosphate. However, he insists, there is still a lot of uncertainty over the long term future of metaldehyde. “The decision to withdraw it was overturned in a judicial review which challenged the legal process. “Although it has not been withdrawn in the EU and is still available in other EU states, as yet we do not know if it has a longterm future in the UK with perhaps different label restrictions, or whether it will be withdrawn again.”

Date changes The Agricultural Industries Confederation (AIC) was disappointed by the decision, taken by the former Secretary of State, Michael Gove in December 2018, to withdraw all outdoor uses

of metaldehyde, according to the organisation’s head of agronomy and crop protection sector, Hazel Doonan. This was because it meant that there was only one active substance, ferric phosphate, for use as part of an integrated approach to control slugs which are a major pest in many crops in the UK. “The decision taken by Michael Gove was deemed unlawful in July for procedural reasons and AIC understands that the Government intends to retake the decision as to whether metaldehyde products should be authorised in the UK according to legal requirements as soon as possible,” she says.  “While the outcome means that sale and distribution of metaldehyde products will now expire on 31 December 2020, AIC members have worked to ensure that any stocks of metaldehyde were moved as required onto farm ahead of the 30 June 2019 deadline. “The date for the storage and use of existing metaldehyde stocks reverts to the date that was in place during the re-evaluation, 31 December 2021, until further notification.”  Ms Doonan adds that the AIC has made the decision, together with the Crop Protection Association (CPA), to fund the agronomic update system for autumn 2019. “Feedback from water companies indicates that the agronomic updates have been very useful in helping water companies with abstraction management. “The information provided by agronomists on metaldehyde use on a weekly basis is used by water companies to better plan water abstraction around metaldehyde use.” ■ October 2019

Wetter summer encourages slugs in winter plantings A slug feeding on Sluxx HP.

Last year dry, hot weather persisted throughout the summer, suppressing slug levels in winter crops. This August has been quite a contrast, with warmer, wetter conditions dampening soil and potentially increasing slug populations. Farmers should therefore be carefully monitoring slug numbers with trapping and be ready to apply a molluscicide as soon as levels reach threshold, according to Deben Agronomy’s James Klug. Winter rape is particularly susceptible to slug damage when the growing point is exposed, up to the four-leaf stage, and it is expected that downpours in late summer will lead to

higher slug numbers, when compared with 2018. Mr Klug provides advice across east Suffolk and is working with one oilseed rape grower on a mixture of very light sands to clay loams and has about half of a 100ha area drilled to date. “We’re monitoring with traps. At the moment we’re not finding many as it’s been relatively dry – but we are expecting it, and as soon as we start seeing activity, we will be applying some control products. “We’ve had some heavy rain showers, and given the soil types we’re growing on, and the fact that rape is susceptible to slug damage, we are expecting relatively high pressure.” Trapping has taken place in stubble preceding oilseed rape crops being drilled, and generally one or more slugs per trap would indicate a possible risk.

Different mode of action This year Mr Klug has used Sluxx HP, which is a pellet bait formulation containing 29.7 per cent ferric

phosphate. Its mode of action causes slugs to stop feeding immediately upon ingestion of the pellet, after which they will retreat underground and die. Farmers will see that pellets have been eaten, but there will be fewer dead slugs on the surface of the soil when compared with metaldehydebased pellets. It is therefore more effective to monitor reductions in crop damage as an indicator of efficacy. “We don’t see a difference [in control] between ferric phosphate and metaldehyde products,” explains Mr Klug, and, furthermore, with a ban on metaldehyde increasingly likely, stocks are dwindling. “It’s had a reprieve, but it’s still under threat and looking likely we won’t have it going forward – there isn’t a huge amount of product out there available.” But aside from that, ferric phosphate has a better environmental profile, adds Mr Klug. “When it comes to things such as buffer zones around water courses, the issues aren’t there. It’s easier in terms of enivironmental stewardship.”

Earlier this year, on Capel St Andrews Farm, also in Suffolk, Mr Klug says Sluxx had seemed to suppress slug populations across its 475ha of potato plantings. “The perception was that we were under higher pressure so we used it in places where we thought we might have a problem and it seems to be doing a good job.” “We’re very confident in it as a product,” he added. ■

Unlocking your crop’s potential Combining late drilling with the timely application of biological crop stimulants has resulted in a record crop yield for a Cambridgeshire farmer, following similar patterns reported across the country in what has already been a high-yield harvest. Farming some 1,659ha in total in Cambridgeshire, Norfolk and Northamptonshire, as well as two farms near Kelso in Scotland, Triton Farms director Simon Chaplin believes the use of the highly concentrated amino-acid complex AminoA FLO from AminoA biostimulants has been crucial to achieve these yields. AminoA products are natural bio-stimulants, obtained through enzymatic hydrolysis. Containing essential amino acids that plants synthesise throughout their growth cycle, they can contribute positively to yield and quality if the plant is not already producing optimal levels of amino acids itself. Mr Chaplin first trialled AminoA back in November 2017 to boost rooting development on late drilled crops, as it has been Triton Farms’ philosophy to do a multiple chit of black-grass prior to drilling from early November onwards. Applying the product in February as the crop is emerging from the ground, Mr Chaplin has found AminoA FLO to stimulate greater root development, seeing crops on his Abington Park Farm in Cambridgeshire at even 7th wheat, looking more like 1st wheat. “Our philosophy is very much about extending the profitable part of our rotation, and seeing our 4th, 5th 6th and even 7th wheat looking like 1st wheat, is making a difference,” explains Mr Chaplin. “We have effectively duped the wheat into thinking it’s a first wheat, by drilling so late, then putting AminoA on. This makes it feel like an early wheat, ending up with a magnificent amount of tillering.”

Results The results are showing at the weighbridge too, as the second harvest since using AminoA

1-25 Oct.indd 13

products reflects. “2018 yields on the weighbridge at Abington were our best-ever until now, with some 750t more across the farm,” Mr Chaplin adds. With 2019 harvests still coming in across Triton Farms, indications are that this record will again be broken. Trials over 36 x 0.5ha plots have shown 0.47t/ha yield increase when 2 litres of AminoA FLO was applied at early flowering to winter wheat, with 0.31t/ha when 1 litre was applied flowering. This is following a full season’s programme, and results would have been even more dramatic had it not been for previous treatments. Over the 2 farms near Kelso in Scotland, Mr Chaplin has seen 5.1t/ha over 130ha of OSR at the weighbridge, in some places this would have been at least 6t/ha. Winter wheat averaged at least 11.5t/ha over 263ha, with some parts being in the upper 12t/ha, all 1st wheats. Key to the success across all Triton Farms has been the low input costs. At Abington Park Farms, fungicide costs have averaged at just £22/ha and herbicides at £32/ha on wheats, with Mr Chaplin planning to reduce further for the next crop. His agronomist confirmed no visible diseases, despite these low input costs. It is not only yield responses that have impressed, but also performance. Independent laboratory reports on home saved seeds of both Casino Triticale and Skyfall wheat have returned zero results for infection. “We are delighted with the yield responses Simon is seeing, and other trials and testimonials are returning similar results,” explains AminoA managing director Richard Philips (left). “The latest replicated trials with a single use, autumn application of AminoA have provided yield responses of 0.5t/ha, matching other single application trials in 2018 at T1 and T2 timings. Other independent trials gave 10.3 per cent more yield in OSR crops. As Simon and others are seeing, this makes a real difference on farm profits,” he concludes. ■

MAX NEWBERT Syngenta Field Technical Manager


A NEW APP DESIGNED TO HELP BOOST THE TIMELINESS OF INSECTICIDE SPRAYING AGAINST APHID VECTORS OF BARLEY YELLOW DWARF VIRUS (BYDV) IN THE ABSENCE OF BEING ABLE TO USE A NEONICOTINOID SEED TREATMENT THIS AUTUMN, HAS BEEN LAUNCHED BY SYNGENTA. Developed for use with the company’s pyrethroid insecticide, HALLMARK Zeon®, the new app, BYDV ASSIST, alerts users once a spray threshold is reached for given locations. This is based on cumulative daily temperatures reaching 170 day degrees after crop emergence.

BYDV symptoms Without effective management, BYDV can reduce yield by 15-30% in wheat and 50-75% in barley

This 170 day degree figure is important, says Syngenta field technical manager, Max Newbert, because it signals the point when second generation aphids are able to expand the spread of the virus in the crop from plants with initial infection. “Without effective control, BYDV can reduce yield by 15-30% in wheat and 50-75% in barley,” says Dr Newbert. “In the absence of being able to use a neonicotinoid seed treatment, growers need to find alternative ways to manage this damaging problem. A recent survey of 106 growers showed 98% rated BYDV as a potential risk for cereal crops, with some 73% expecting to use a pyrethroid spray against BYDV aphid vectors.

“Delaying drilling until after aphid activity declines is certainly a key consideration,” says Mr Bullen. “When doing this, it is important to select appropriate varieties. Winter wheat varieties Graham and Gleam both provide flexibility to be drilled later, although seed rates may need to be increased in some instances. Similarly, there is evidence that hybrid barley is relatively tolerant to later drilling.

By providing alerts, we hope the app will make effective spraying against BYDV much more achievable. Users will also be able to set the app to give advanced warning of a spray threshold approaching. It will still be vital to inspect crops to monitor aphid numbers. However, 94% of respondents in the survey said a user-friendly BYDV prediction tool would be helpful in making BYDV spray application decisions.”

However, whenever drilling is delayed, it is also important to offset the slower crop emergence that occurs due to colder soils, and the risks from establishment diseases. Extensive work on the fungicide seed treatment VIBRANCE® Duo in winter wheat has shown that, as well as boosting crop establishment at normal drilling times, it is particularly beneficial when drilling later.”

Once the spraying threshold has been reached and the pyrethroid applied, Dr Newbert says the accumulated daily temperatures can be reset on the app, so that further alerts can be issued if temperatures again reach 170 day degrees. This will help stay on top of subsequent aphid generations, he notes.

The BYDV Assist app is available to download now from The App Store and Google Play, Mr Bullen concludes. The new BYDV Assist app is designed as a decision support tool for BYDV management in the absence of being able to use a neonicotinoid seed treatment, says Max Newbert of Syngenta.

“We have also incorporated weather forecasts into the app,” says Dr Newbert, “to help predict available aphicide spraying windows.” With BYDV being such a damaging virus, Syngenta marketing manager, Mark Bullen, says it is also important to reduce aphid risks by using cultural methods.

Plant health focus at Potatoes in Practice The focus of this year’s Potatoes in Practice, held at the James Hutton Institute’s Balruddery Farm, Dundee was plant health. Advice was on hand to help growers make the most of a reduced plant protection toolbox. Heather Briggs reports. The future of the potato seed industry in Scotland will depend on availability of clean land, free from potato cyst nematodes (PCN), warned Scotland’s Plant Health Centre director and senior scientist at the James Hutton Institute, Prof Ian Toth (left) . There are two types of PCN; Globodera rostochiensis and Globodera pallida. Some of the most popular varieties – such as Maris Piper – are resistant to G. rostochiensis, so proliferation of that strain has been held in check. However, G. pallida is a different story. In the 1970s, G. pallida represented only 2-3 per cent of PCN findings in pre-crop soil testing in Scotland but is now 68 per cent. While there are now a few processing varieties resistant to the pest – and these are gradually gaining acceptance – there are very few ware varieties with resistance, and those that are available have yet to be seen in mainstream supermarkets. “We need to prevent land becoming infested wherever possible and this will most likely be achieved through better awareness and improved resistance. The Plant Health Centre is funding a study to see how this might be best achieved,” said Prof Toth. SRUC applied practice researcher Andy Evans said: “Most people are not aware that when growing other crops in the rotation, such as wheat, barley or oilseed rape, there is still a real risk of spreading PCN on soil trapped in machinery so engagement between growers and contractors is vital. “Good agronomics such as longer rotations, with good volunteer (groundkeeper) control can also play a useful role, as can using the AHDB PCN calculator, now on its third version.”

Prof Toth added: “There is a growing need for awareness throughout the supply chain of the problems caused by this pest and scientists, growers, agronomists, packers and supermarkets all need to work together.”

Diquat loss The loss of diquat has made fast and effective haulm destruction more difficult, said Scottish Agronomy’s Greg Dawson (right). The problem affects all potato growers but producers of high grade (Pre-BASIC) seed potatoes face some unique issues. Mr Dawson said: “Ineffective or slow haulm destruction is a potential consequence of the revocation of diquat. This can create a pathway for bacteria to enter the plant, causing blackleg, and it also increases the risk of virus infection through re-growth. “Therefore careful decisions need to be made around desiccation because any symptoms cause a Certification failure or downgrade.” Nevertheless, there are currently both chemical and mechanical means of haulm destruction available to growers, pointed out Mr Dawson. “At the moment we still have the desiccant Spotlight Plus (Carfentrazone-ethyl) and Gozai (Pyraflufen-ethyl) which is approved for use as herbicide and desiccant. “You need to ensure maximum dosage per crop hectare (ha) is not exceeded throughout the season. “For example, if you are using Spotlight Plus for desiccation you have to comply with a 1-litre/ha maximum individual dose, with a maximum total dose of 1.6-litres/ha. “If you opt for Pyraflufenethyl the maximum total dose of 1.6-litres/ha includes any applications made for weed

control. This could reduce options at the desiccation timing.” A small plot trial looking at combinations of mechanical and chemical techniques on seed potatoes is underway at Scottish Agronomy. This is part of a far larger trial series being run by AHDB on a range of crop types. “We are looking for proof of principle, which we can then take forward into studies in commercial seed crops,” he added.

Safe Haven seed scheme Consultations on the future of the Safe Haven seed potato scheme are underway with advisers and regulators of the potato industry, announced AHDB Strategy Director Rob Clayton (right). The scheme was established to protect ware growers from buying seed infected with ring rot. Freedom from bacterial diseases such as Dickeya

solani were then added. The changes being consulted are an introduction of measures to include freedom from brown rot and epitrix. Dr Clayton said: “We need to be able to respond quickly to plant health alerts to flush out any diseases which enter into the country. “With new challenges facing our industry all the time, it is vital that our high health standards for seed potatoes are maintained. “Acceptance on to the Safe Haven scheme will continue to depend on strict, scientifically robust protocols, and seed growers are only eligible to join the scheme if they have the highest hygiene standards.” Seed origin, machinery, transport and storage are all reviewed prior to certification being awarded. The formal consultation started on 17th August and will last for 6 weeks. ■

New initiative to boost potato tuber health A new campaign has been launched to help the seed potato supply chain improve the health and quality of its tubers. Conditions in recent seasons, such as the hot and dry summer of 2018, have seen seed producers across Britain battling to keep some viral and fungal pathogens out of seed stocks. In response, agrochemical manufacturer Certis launched its Tubercare initiative at the Potatoes in Practice event. Tubercare will promote industry best practice while planting, growing, harvesting, handling and storing seed and ware tubers to improve the overall health of the national potato crop. In addition, it will look to promote the safe and responsible use of seed treatments, which play a vital role in helping to deliver the best quality potato seed and keep subsequent crops disease free post planting. The company’s potato portfolio manager Nick Badger (right) said it is already forging strong links with scientific experts and top agronomists to deliver the best and most relevant advice for the industry. A dedicated Tubercare website that will help deliver all the information to growers and advisers is now live. It will be updated regularly as the seasons progress. “Seed health is extremely important and producing clean seed benefits the industry as a whole, facilitating the production of highquality ware crops at less risk from virus and fungal disease spread. “After the issues seed producers have had over recent seasons, we are committed to helping growers tackle these problems with our Tubercare initiative,” said Mr Badger.

New blight strain gains ground The latest blight strain can out-compete previously dominant, aggressive strains.

The rate of spread of the new blight strain, 36_A2 is concerning, says potato agronomist Eric Anderson (right) of Scottish Agronomy. Other strains which were previously dominant, such as 13_A2 and 6_A1, are known to be aggressive but it appears that this latest one can out-compete them and has shown a phenomenal spread, he notes. “First found in England during 2017, 36_A2 comprised two per cent of the total GB blight population. This increased to 18 per cent in 2018 and, so far during the 2019 season, accounts for 41 per cent of the total

GB population. “Now for the first time we have at least two confirmed cases of 36_A2 in Fife and Angus in Scotland.” Moreover, 36_A2 has spread rapidly across Europe to become common across Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands, France, Poland and Denmark. A fitness advantage has been confirmed by several organisations across Europe where laboratory testing found 36_A2 to be more aggressive than preceding strains. “This aggressiveness may be

partly because of the multiplier effect of a shorter latent period, combined with a larger lesion growth rate and higher sporulation capacity. “A problem with current testing is that genotypes do not predict pathogencity very well. “There are known differences in pathogenicity traits of specific genotypes in their ability to overcome potato variety blight resistance genes. “Furthermore, fungicides that block metabolic pathways by acting on a single target are known to be prone to loss of efficacy as a result of resistance evolution in pathogen populations.”

Quantitative resistance He explains that the resistance mechanism thought to be causing the subtle shift in 36_A2 sensitivity is termed quantitative resistance. “This can be likened to septoria resistance to azole fungicides in wheat, where the azole group’s efficacy against the disease sees a progressively wider and more shifted population distribution of sensitivities occur over a period of years. One of the challenges he sees

with a shifted sensitivity to certain fungicides are holes developing in the plant protection toolbox. Mr Anderson is particularly concerned by previous AHDB-funded research, where 36_A2 was shown to be less sensitive to low rates of mandipropamid, which is commonly used alone during the rapid canopy phase. “As potato plants are growing quickly at this time, products which bind to leaf wax of newly developing leaves, will be quickly diluted to low concentrations within the canopy and may struggle to control blight. “With the increased use of mancozeb for resistance management in blight programmes, the industry needs a positive outcome from the current renewal process. “It is too early to call but the active substance is already looking vulnerable. This places increased emphasis on stewarding existing products for resistance management. “We need to know as much about this new strain as possible, so the best strategy at the moment is to be observant and report late blight outbreaks to your local AHDB Fight Against Blight scout who can submit samples for genotype and phenotype testing.” ■

Get the best out of soil-acting black-grass herbicides With residual, soil-acting herbicides often now representing a quarter to a half of the annual crop protection investment made in winter wheat in black-grass situations, getting the best out of them is paramount, says North Essex and Suffolk-based ProCam agronomist, Mark Anstee. In response, he has developed a five-point plan: 1 - Begin with a fine, firm seedbed Creating an even soil surface with a fine crumb structure leaves fewer inaccessible ‘hiding places’ where black-grass can germinate from and where herbicide sprays can’t reach, says Mr Anstee. By contrast, clods shield the soil surface beneath them from sprays, and can fracture open later, releasing black-grass seed to germinate from their centres, he warns. Prior to planting, aim to kill off two flushes of black-grass in stale seedbeds, cultivating lightly and rolling after spraying off the first flush to stimulate the next one to come through.”

2 - Apply residual herbicides at the right time Apply pre-emergence herbicides as soon as possible after drilling and certainly within 24–48 hours, advises Mr Anstee, unless the conditions aren’t suitable. “Waiting too long before spraying allows time for black-grass to establish deeper roots before the herbicide is applied. Spraying earlier means the black-grass roots will have to grow through the herbicide layer, which increases uptake. However, check the weather forecast to ensure the conditions are right for herbicide activity. “If it’s hot and dry, herbicides will break down faster in the soil, so won’t give the necessary duration of control and won’t be taken up by the black-grass roots. The ideal is to spray when the soil is damp but no heavy rain expected, to allow time for the herbicide to adhere to soil particles. A dump of rain within 24 hours increases the risk of leaching. The rule is: if you don’t have the conditions to spray,

don’t drill – though that’s easier said than done. 3 - Keep residuals away from crop roots Good control of black-grass from residuals is one side of the coin, but the other is minimising the risk of them taking their toll on the crop, Mr Anstee points out. “Always drill deep enough according to the herbicide label so the crop roots are well below the herbicide layer – for example, seed covered by a minimum of 32mm of settled soil, or sometimes more. 4 - Keep residuals in the black-grass root zone At the same time as keeping herbicides away from the crop root zone, do everything possible to keep them in the black-grass root zone, urges Mr Anstee, to maximise weed uptake. “There are products available that help to hold the herbicide towards the top layer of soil in the black-grass root zone, and minimise its movement down to the crop roots. We’ve seen

these types of treatment getting better in our evaluations over the years. They’re a low-cost investment. If they give a 5–10 per cent improvement in herbicide performance, that can make a big difference,” he says. 5 - Achieve good spray coverage Correct nozzles, such as angled nozzles to reach all exposed surfaces of soil particles, and correct spray quality, to reduce drift and provide more spraying opportunities, are both important for getting the best coverage and spray timing with residuals. A reduction in forward speed is also important; it reduces the vortex behind the sprayer that can carry spray droplets away from their target, and it also reduces boom bounce which can lead to uneven dosing. “Similarly, set the boom to the correct height to reach the target, usually 50cm from the soil surface. And apply in the correct water volume. You can see the benefit of using 200-litres/ ha, rather than lower volumes, for improving spray coverage,” he says. ■

Carbon footprint – measuring the ‘unmeasurable’ Openfield’s head of research, compliance and shipping, Cecilia Pryce, puzzles over how accurate UK cereals production carbon footprint could be. I’m a great believer that no two consumers are the same, after all, DNA and finger printing have proved we’re all different for years. So, if this is the case, food producers must be constantly asking “What do consumers really expect from their food these days?” Finding that certain something gives you a competition edge and is every marketing department’s dream. Yet unless your differential is simple and easy to understand, you run the risk of having to educate your customer. Educating consumers is a minefield – after all the Red Tractor logo and the ‘traffic light label’ scheme have been around for a long time, but how many consumers really know what these mean? I fully back trade assurance schemes, the UK is probably the best in the world when it comes to the cereal supply chain, but how can we move forward and add real financial value to the end food products that ‘wear’ the logos or come with farm assurance?

Food footprint In a world that is becoming very concerned about the planet and our individual carbon footprint, I wonder how many consumers would be interested in knowing what the carbon footprint of the food they consume is. More importantly, would the data be trustworthy and accurate? With Defra determined to ensure ‘public money for public good’ how do you rate a hedgerow verses a conservation headland or a farmer with a modern tractor verses an older one? If you were to take a standard chicken, grown and reared in the UK, could you give it an accurate carbon footprint? You’d need to consider its full feed, UK wheat and imported soya, road miles, heating costs and value of manure etc. Of course, we probably could, but would

the consumer be any the wiser if they read XXXgCO2eq/kg? Would a commodity shipped in a refrigerated container have a lower reading than a locally produced product? Of course, it’s all relative and comes down to the ability to correctly measure the ‘unmeasurable’. I don’t believe you can measure welfare in units. Assurance schemes measure process and procedure which again can’t really be given a meaningful unit value. Furthermore, how will the final consumer use the finished product and what will they do with any packaging? All food waste and recycling of packaging has a big impact on the product’s carbon footprint, which individuals need to manage the disposal of themselves.

Regional variance A tonne of wheat in Herefordshire and Worcestershire is recorded as having 356gCO2eq/kg while a tonne in East Anglia is 317gCO2eq/kg. The difference is crudely due to higher yields with total CO2 identified to grow a crop divided by regional yields. Would these numbers make a difference to a consumer when buying a loaf of bread or considering where an animal feed mill bought its wheat from? Over time it will, but before then, we need a carbon calculator that also considers the amount of work farmers already do for our environment. This work is often taken for granted and consumers are often reluctant to pay for it. Maybe this is where public money for public goods comes in to play but someone, somewhere will still have to define a public good and its real cash value!

Keeping ahead of phoma and light leaf spot Oilseed rape varieties need to have at least a ‘6’ for light leaf spot and phoma to even be considered for growing by a Gloucestershire-based agronomist. Farmers Guide finds out more. Phoma leaf spot is the most important OSR disease across most of England and untreated autumn infections can lead to spring and summer stem cankers resulting in a fall in yields that can be as high as 25 per cent. Varietal resistance plays a key role in keeping on top of the disease, says Zantra agronomist Tim Bullock (right). He does not, however, have a preferred variety, and his customers grow a wide number of different varieties, including Clearfield and HOLL, but he insists on them having reasonable levels of disease resistance. “Before choosing a variety we look at the disease profile and if it has a high rating (at least a 6 for stem canker) – particularly if it has an RML7 multi-resistance gene – it can cope with higher pressure. “If it has 45 per cent oil as well, then it is ideal,” he says.

“Crops are more at risk in warmer and wetter years, with dry and cold ones reducing that risk, so when deciding on strategy we do some modelling to assess the threat. “Some years this can happen in October, but this does not always result in high disease pressure,” he adds. While autumn 2017 was a high pressure year, Mr Bullock reports seeing far fewer infections in 2018. He sprays when a threshold of between 10–20 per cent of plants infected has been reached, depending on the variety and how well the crop is doing when it expresses the infection. “A larger, stronger plant will cope better than a late-drilled, weak crop which is suffering from other stresses, such as cabbage stem flea beetle. The smaller the plant, the less distance the phoma has to travel down the stem to produce the damaging canker. “Most years we can get away with one spray in the autumn, but some

years we may need to have two,” he says. Because the disease is so weather dependent, growers should be counting the number of rainy days from drilling onwards, he says. “I would advise combining high performance with good all round disease resistance that includes stem canker, leaf spot and verticillium. “Crops should be sprayed as soon as the phoma threshold of 10–20 per cent of infected plants is reached, and consider a second application later to prevent re-infection if necessary.”

Light leaf spot Preventative light leaf spot control in susceptible varieties is best done in the autumn when spraying for phoma, continues Mr Bullock. This is particularly important when conditions have resulted in growers drilling their oilseed rape slightly early so the crop is subjected to a higher number of infection events, such as in 2018. However as harvest 2019 has been delayed, which has impacted rape drilling date, it may only need one prophylactic spray in autumn or winter. The disease affects all regions of the UK, making it one of the most important disease threats to oilseed

rape. However, often infections do not express until January or February but, in some years, can appear in late autumn. As the autumn progresses mild, damp conditions favouring light leaf spot may cause difficulties in getting on the land to spray making autumn disease control challenging. Mr Bullock says: “Monitoring crops in January and February is always key to good control. “There is no threshold for light leaf spot treatment pre-stem extension so if disease is found it should be treated as soon as possible. “As we have prothioconazole, SDHIs and strobilurins, we still have a good armoury of fungicides for light leaf spot and phoma, with different modes of action. “Nevertheless, light leaf spot can be difficult to control if fungicides are applied at stem extension to heavily infected crops, so early treatment and resistant varieties are always to be preferred. “We never know what is going to happen disease-wise from year to year, therefore you have to take actions to reduce the risk. And both susceptible and resistant varieties will benefit from a more protectant approach to fungicide applications.” ■

Spore development Warm and wet weather conditions in August and September facilitate spore development from stubbles and early infections which can particularly affect more backward crops and small plants, raising their risk of stem canker development in the following spring. “Rain events make it easier for volunteers to grow, and it is from this stubble that the spores are generated which can then affect the next oilseed rape crop.

Using a pre-emergence herbicide can be a very good starting point for OSR, growers are advised.

Pre-ems key to OSR gross margin boost With oilseed rape remaining an essential crop in the arable rotation, growers must use cost effective and appropriately timed pre-emergence herbicides as an insurance policy in the event of potential crop losses due to seasonal pressures. NIAB TAG agronomist Chris Page (right) says the loss of neonicotinoid seed treatments has given understandable concerns about flea beetle, but believes there are far greater risks to the crop than just this particular pest. In recent years poor moisture reserves have made establishing OSR more challenging, but ineffective weed control can be potentially far more damaging. “If you’re committed to growing oilseed rape then it’s important to consider using pre-emergence herbicides despite the current risk of flea beetle and slugs,” he says. “The argument to not use pre-emergence has always been bubbling away in the background but it’s potentially

a very risky and expensive strategy to rely solely on post-emergence options. “Oilseed rape is such a valuable crop in the rotation with the early harvest spreading autumn workload and can have a positive impact on cash flow; both good reasons that are hard to ignore. “A pre-emergence product of choice is the broad spectrum herbicide Centium 360 CS (clomazone) because it’s cost effective and has no LERAP buffer requirement, which should give growers peace of mind,” he says. “Remember that weed ingress normally starts from the headland so if there’s a 5–10m buffer zone restriction, the weed burden is only likely to get worse.” A well-timed preemergence application can avoid, or limit, further need of expensive post emergence options. “Early use of pre-emergence herbicides, applied within 48 hours of drilling and rolling, is essential helping control weeds that otherwise become harder to take out

later in the season when much of the yield potential has been lost,” he says. “Post-emergence strategies should start at the three true leaf stage, but if the weed spectrum is known I would always recommend going with a pre-emergence option.”

Not just flea beetle Mr Page says that the loss of neonicotinoids has seen his oilseed rape acreage drop significantly, however it is not all down to the flea beetle issue. It is secondary to moisture – last year was very dry – and providing the right growing conditions for the crop to establish well is key. “For those hard core oilseed rape growers using a pre-emergence can be a very good starting point. If you have a history of shepherd’s purse, groundsel, cleavers or fool’s parsley it’s possible to lose the whole crop through weed pressure alone. Centium 360 CS has proved an extremely valuable tool in the box for taking out many of these problem weeds, including useful suppression of hedge mustard. When mixed with metazachlor the

weed control extends to mayweed and autumn germinating sow thistle. I’m a fan of clomazone and it can be used to good effect pre-em in oilseed rape, peas and beans.” Mr Page says that other alternative pre-emergence approaches in OSR are available, with metazachlor-based products such as Katamaran or Katamaran Turbo but these are generally more expensive. “I accept flea beetle is a problem and growers are more anxious about growing OSR; I recognise that the loss of neonics and build up in resistance to insecticides has made oilseed rape a difficult crop to grow. Upfront costs are high so I understand growers' concerns, but oilseed rape is an essential breakcrop in the rotation and alternatives can be limiting. If established successfully, OSR can return a gross margin on a par with, or be better than other crops.” The key is to achieve good establishment, because Mr Page says oilseed rape will grow away from flea beetle if the crop gets off to a successful start. Attention to detail to encourage establishment is paramount. “If you have historical knowledge of the weed spectrum and Centium fits then apply at a rate of 0.25-litres/ ha which at a cost of about £20/ha can be a good insurance policy. If for any reason the crop then fails, the costs will not have been too much,” advises Mr Page. FMC has done a lot of work over the years to optimise efficacy, but to safeguard Centium 360 CS Mr Page says growers must follow the label; using it in a minimum of 200-litres/ ha of water and apply using a coarse spray droplet to avoid drift, taking care as always on overlaps. ■

Field f cus Our two agronomists report very satisfactory harvests in their respective regions, as Dominic Kilburn writes.

Nottinghamshire Agronomist Christina Scarborough said that the winter barley harvest had been a bumper one with regular 2-row varieties grown such as KWS Orwell and KWS Tower achieving between 9.5–11t/ ha – above the long-term average for farms in the region. Due to the exceptional yields, one farmer for the first time had to quickly sell his winter barley out of the grain store to make room for later harvested spring barley, she noted. Wheats were about average with hard Group 4 variety Shabras standing out in terms of yield, ease of management and autumn vigour. “Its increased vigour appeared to help suppress black-grass as well as growing away from slug damage,” she added. The majority of oilseed rape drilled in autumn 2018 didn’t make it through the season and was ploughed in to be replaced by barley in the spring. “Crops looked OK in the autumn, but they never got going in the what was a cold, dry spring and flea beetle did the rest,” commented Christina. “There was one field which we gave up on and, rather than re-drilling, we just left it and shut the gate. It then flowered very late in the spring, in late April/early May, and is

yet to be harvested. “It will be very interesting to see what it yields,” she said. Although there was little in the way of oilseed rape drilled by her farmers this autumn, and there is likely to be a significant fall in the area being grown in the region this season, Christina pointed out that her use of new post-emergence herbicide Belkar last year delivered very good weed control in oilseed rape. Containing Corteva’s Arylex active + picloram, she said that the product had given excellent broadleaved weed control, in particular cranesbill as well as poppy. “If I had an OSR acreage I’d be going down the Arylex route this autumn with a split dose; the first 0.25-litres/ha at 3-true leaves (BBCH12-14), followed by a further 0.25-litres/ha with a minimum interval of 2 weeks between applications.”

Black-grass While not resting on her laurels, Christina said that, through careful consideration of rotations, good autumn herbicide programmes and, latterly, with the use of spring-applied herbicide Monolith (mesosulfuron + propoxycarbazone), fields that have been badly affected by black-grass in recent years are now back to being in a “decent state”. “We are by no means on top of it but just a few years ago we were seeing a lot of wheat crops being

written off because of black-grass but we’re not seeing that now, and neither are we seeing so many patches being sprayed off in fields.” She suggested that while there was currently nothing new to consider about Cross Compliance, spray buffer zones are becoming increasingly complex and growers may not be completely familiar with names such as Anthropod Buffer Zones and the Drift Reduction Technology (DRT) Scheme. “Products are likely to have cropspecific buffer zones so it’s important to get good advice from agronomists, understand what the zones mean and make sure they are on the right side of the law. “In the past there was a lot of education about LERAPS, but there is less about the newer zones. That said, it’s all on product labels and should be written on the recommendations made by the agronomist.” Christina Scarborough can be contacted via email: Christina@ or tel: 07969 507082.

North Yorkshire It’s been a very pleasing year said AICC agronomist Andrew Fisher looking back at harvest results, where second wheats have performed especially well. “We got good yields (up to 12.5t/ ha) and good quality from the wheats but it was the second wheats which stood out. In many cases there was little difference between first and second performance,” he said. Group 4 hard varieties Costello and Gleam both performed very well in the second wheat slot; Costello,

Andrew pointed out, has consistently performed well for him while Gleam is relatively new. Likewise, fellow Group 4 hard feed Graham performed well while in the quality wheats KWS Zyatt stood out. “All in all it’s been a very pleasing year – if only the prices were a little better!” he added. Winter barley was another success for his growers with 10t/ha crops, while spring barley yield was a little more mixed on account of the cold and dry spring which held it back. According to Andrew, oilseed rape drilled before 20th August this summer has been hammered by flea beetle while later drilled crops have been slow to come through and get away due to cooler nights. “I’ve been recommending pyrethroids where we have to and, if that hasn’t worked, Biscaya as a last resort. “We were lucky last year – we only lost one field of OSR and we had cracking yields this harvest at nearly 5t/ha.” Speaking in mid-September, Andrew said that with fields now cleared of straw it was a job to hold back his growers from drilling but with black-grass at 1-2 leaves, as well as moisture, there should be ample opportunity to get a good kill. “The only downside for growers is that if it’s damp now they’ll feel it’s only going to get wetter and potentially impact on their drilling programme,” he commented. Andrew reminded growers that now is a good time to get soil analysis records for BPS up to date; highlighting soil quality issues and preparing nutrient management plans. “It’s always good to get analysis done – it acts as a management tool for the grower to better target inputs such as muck and slurry.” Andrew Fisher can be contacted via email: conker.fisher@farming., or tel: 07836 711918. ■

Rural Advice

Local plan hiatus and land funds In this month’s Rural Advice column, Carter Jonas partner Mark Russell vents his frustration with the planning process which, he says, still takes far too much time and is not without risk for farmers and landowners. He also highlights new opportunities. As advisers, much of our time is spent helping farmers and landowners choose and then manage relationships with developers or promoters who then spend their time and money taking a client’s land through the planning process. However, projects that are initially planned to take 7 years seem to take 14, and strategic sites that logically should take up to 10 years can take 20.

clients are seeing it as a way to extract value earlier in the process rather than potentially waiting until the end of their active career before they see the benefits. This early release of capital can provide an opportunity to buy higher income producing assets with Entrepreneurial Relief (ER) claimed on the transaction thus reducing the tax burden on day one.

Examples: • I put together a consortium of owners in 2004. Their land was allocated in 2006 and eventually sold with planning permission in 2018. • I worked on a strategic allocation between 2000 and 2007 where a client was funding promotion directly, this was then moved to a promotion company which has promoted the land with it only now having the first phase built. Since 2007 we have seen the rise of the promoter. Now we are seeing 'early land funds' coming through the market. Where clients’ land has been allocated in a draft Local Plan these funds are prepared to pay multiples of agricultural land value to secure the freehold of the site. Some

Risk factors

Projects that initially plan to take 7 years seem to take 14, and strategic sites that logically should take up to 10 years can take 20, says Mark Russell.

Most clients ask themselves why they would want to sell at what looks at the outset like a large discount. However, land going through the planning process faces a number of risk factors: 1. The market – in 2007/8 development land went from a high value to being virtually unsaleable over a period of about six months. While we believe the current strong development land market will continue, there are no guarantees. 2. The planning system is simply not certain, I have situations at the moment where land that was in a draft allocation was taken out without much reasoning when the final Local Plan was published. I even have a situation where a planning authority is 'unable' to write

up planning permissions for new development (across the whole district) because of an ongoing discussion between them and Natural England with regards to environmental offsetting. This was supposed to be completed in June 2019 – we have just been told it may take another year. 3. A benign tax regime with ER providing a cushion from Capital Gains Tax which could be altered or removed. Some clients are taking the view that receiving a multiple of agricultural land value now is better than waiting for the golden goose to get around to laying – when it’s good and ready.

Tractor test

Power and grip from latest addition

Fendt’s 900 Vario-series tractors have become a firm favourite with large, professional arable farmers and contractors and the latest Gen 6 model is almost totally new from the ground-up, but offers even greater performance and comfort for additional appeal to prospective purchasers. David Williams tried it out. “The wheel nuts are the same as on the previous model,” stated Fendt UK tractor product specialist Peter Henson, explaining features of the new 942 Vario. “Apart from that there are few other components in common and everything else is new.” The new 900 Vario line-up consists of 5 models, the same as before, but a step up in horsepower demand has seen the previous entry-level 275hp 927 Vario deleted from the range, while a new flagship 415hp 942 Vario breaks the 400hp barrier for the first time.

Power (hp) 296 326 355 385 415

Fendt is referring to the new series as Gen 6 as the company believes frequent changes to exhaust emissions standards, referred to differently in Europe and the US, create confusion when used to differentiate between models. However, all the latest Gen 6, 900 Vario tractors do meet latest Stage 5 regulations.

Not a mini 1000 Vario For owners the biggest change is a move from Deutz 6-cyl 7.1-litre power units to MAN 6-cyl, 9-litre

engines; driving through Fendt’s VarioDrive transmission - first fitted to the larger 1000 Vario series. VarioDrive achieves efficiency through intelligently adjusting power distribution between the front and rear axles to suit the application and conditions. For operators the most obvious upgrade from previous models is the all-new cab, also from the flagship 1000 Vario series. However, Fendt points out that just because the new tractors share several major design features with 1000 Vario models, that doesn’t make the 900 Vario their smaller twin. It is actually a completely different tractor designed for different applications. With 415hp and on the largest 750/75R44 rear, and 650/60R38 front tyres, the 942 Vario is big; but with 5 steps to access the cab it has 2 steps less than its larger brother and compared to similar powered models from competitors the new tractors are quite compact.

Challenging conditions The test drive on a Northamptonshire arable farm was an opportunity to assess the 942 Vario cultivating stubble with a 6m heavy cultivator. The Lemken Karat 12 is suitable for shallow or deeper stubble cultivation and for the test the tines were in deep, and pulling it through the stiff, challenging soils at an average 12kph working speed took

VarioGrip integral tyre pressure adjustment and Grip Assist are logical upgrades, making the most of the versatile VarioDrive transmission.

most of the available power. Fendt’s demonstrator came with VarioGrip, an integrated tyre pressure adjustment system fitted at the factory allowing pressures to be set from the VarioTerminal display. Fendt Grip Assist was also fitted, allowing the user to enter details including ground conditions, the task and the operating speed; and an ideal ballasting strategy is suggested together with recommended tyre pressures. When ballast is already fitted, details are entered and Grip Assist suggests suitable tyre pressures and operating speed. Accepting the recommendation provides automatic tyre pressure adjustment to match. Because Fendt’s VarioDrive powers the front and rear axles through independent hydrostatic motors there is no mechanical link, so tyre pressures can be individually set for optimal performnce without danger of axle wind up. Fendt says it is seeing steady sales growth for the VarioGrip option from professional growers

wanting to look after and protect their soils. “It’s interesting that when dealers are asked to demonstrate tractors, there are more requests for the tractor to be equipped with VarioGrip. VarioDrive is an ideal partner to VarioGrip with the systems complementing each other and providing even greater advantage, so we expect increased demand for integrated tyre pressure adjustment for the new models. “One thing most manufacturers and engineers hate seeing is a powerful tractor with 3t of ballast on the front and a subsoiler at the rear working in hard, dry conditions,” commented Peter. “There is little opportunity for tyre slip so all the drive components in a traditional transmission are under massive stress. This just isn’t an issue with VarioDrive and the system will optimise tyre life too.” Grip Assist is a stand-alone function available through an unlock code, and for those carrying out dedicated tasks such as tanker work, VarioGrip will allow the user to continued over...

select pressures to suit the field and road, and there is little requirement for additional guidance.

A second Isobus connector, on the front of the tractor, is an option allowing users to make the most of the new VarioTerminal which is capable of controlling two Isobus implements at once.

Easy to use Peter demonstrated how optimum tyre pressures are easily obtained through Grip Assist and adjusted using VarioGrip on the VarioTerminal. First the operator selects the implement attachment type - hitch, semi-mounted or three point linkage. Then the working conditions, tyre size, implement type, and anticipated operating speed are all entered. The recommended front and rear ballast, and tyre pressures are displayed. “Users know that optimising tyre pressures for each task improves efficiency, results in higher work rates, extends tyre life and protects soils from compaction,” said Peter. “But, without a system like VarioGrip it takes time and effort so often compromise pressures are chosen to protect the tyres, without making the most of their potential. A system to set pressures easily from the cab makes it much more likely that users will adjust the pressure for every task to obtain best performance.”

VarioDrive VarioDrive is an infinitely variable CVT system using a pump and two motors. For high torque situations where maximum power and traction are needed, both motors drive both axles. Below 25kph both motors are working but at higher speeds the front motor swings into neutral position so no more oil can be supplied and a clutch for the front motor disengages reducing drag losses. At top speed the second motor is also in neutral position which leads to a mechanical drive and reduced engine revs, for maximum efficiency, reducing fuel use and wear and tear. Drive distribution between the axles means there is no 4wd selector and because it is fully automatic the operator can concentrate on the task while the tractor’s management

The 10.4in VarioTerminal is easily navigated with simple menus and intuitive operation.

system maximises efficiency and economy. Differential lock selector buttons are retained, as VarioDrive distributes power between the axles, but not between the left and right wheels. There is no high/low range selector either - instead there is just one speed range from 0–60kph. Peter explained that additional VarioDrive benefits include a more comfortable ride. “We have little experience with the new 900 Vario so far, but users of the 1000 Vario have commented on the complete absence of ‘power-hop’, which often occurs with other high horsepower tractors. This is because of our transmission’s constant adjustment of power distribution between the front and rear as it reacts to working conditions. In fact, it reacts so quickly and easily that it’s impossible to feel when it adjusts. Even painting marks on the wheels and attempting to video it as it redirected power between the axles proved unsuccessful, as slip compensation started before the loss

of grip was detectable.” A further benefit of Fendt’s VarioDrive transmission and its ability to direct power where needed is that during tight headland turns, power to the front axle is increased, speeding up the front wheels and effectively pulling the front of the tractor in the direction of steering. This, Fendt claims, results in a turning radius 10 per cent tighter than a conventional tractor with the same wheelbase, saving time and reducing the space needed for manoeuvring.

Compact but capable The new 900 Vario is the same overall length as the previous version despite having a longer 3,150mm wheelbase. Width and height are slightly increased, although a 60in track width can still be achieved, and unladen weight is approximately one tonne more mainly due to the new engine and transmission. Hydraulic performnce is uprated. The rear linkage capacity is increased

The rear linkage lifts up to 12.41t and the rear spools supply up to 165-litres/min in base spec but an upgrade increases maximum flow to 430-litres/min.

to 12,410kg and the optional front linkage is similar to previous models at 5,584kg. Cat 3 or Cat 4-narrow are options but Peter suggests most UK users will select Cat 4 as it is better suited to heavy mounted implements which are likely to be the primary application. New handy features include a profiled top-link bracket which helps guide the ball into place making it easier to hitch up to mounted implements. There are also graduation markings on both lift rods allowing the user to check at a glance that both are of equal length before attaching the lower link arms. Hydraulic flow rates are available to suit the most demanding implements. 165 litres/min is standard with 220 litres/min an upgrade option, but a massive 430 litres/ min is also available from 2 pumps providing 220 and 210 litres/min continued over...

Access for daily checks is good and service intervals are double that of the previous 900 Vario tractors at 1,000hrs.

the different outputs necessary to prevent resonance at maximum flow. Rear spools can deliver 140 litres/min as standard but a larger diameter coupling allows delivery rates up to 170 litres/min from 2 pairs of valves. At the front end there is a choice of one or 2 hydraulic spools, plus an option to fit an Isobus socket.

Optimum efficiency The MAN engines and Vario CVT transmission work together to achieve Fendt’s iD low engine speed concept. Benefits include constant adjustment to maintain lowest fuel consumption for the task and speed selected, by allowing the high torque engine to work at lowest possible revs. This also extends the service life of the engine oil and filters. The result is a change to 1,000hour service intervals, up from 500 previously. The new 942 Vario achieves maximum 1,970Nm torque at 1,150rpm, and maintains the high torque up to 1,450rpm. Idle is now at just 650rpm with maximum horsepower achieved at 1,700rpm. 40kph transport speed is available

from just 950rpm. “We have no official fuel figures yet but with considerably more torque at lower revs and based on comments from early users, everything points to significant fuel savings,” said Peter. According to the VarioTerminal display, consumption during the test drive cultivating at the target 12kph was typically 14–17 litres/ha. Fuel tank capacity is slightly increased to 625 litres and Adblue tank capacity is now 70 litres - almost double that of the previous model and more than compensating for the MAN engine’s increased additive use, up from approximately 4 to 8 per cent.

Cab updated The previous cab was popular with operators but the latest version is larger, with improved visibility, more storage for tools and smaller items, and improved comfort. There are three cab suspension options including base mechanical which won’t be available for the UK. Mid-spec includes three-point suspension with a cone at the front and two pneumatic dampers at the rear, and maximum comfort

The cab is new, and almost identical to the 1000 Vario flagship. Space is increased, comfort is improved and noise levels are lower plus there are many other userfriendly upgrades.

is provided by full pneumatic suspension front and rear - which was fitted to the demonstration model. The new cab provides easier access including a large plastic moulded grab handle on the lower rear mudguard, improved step lighting and a wider entry door. The passenger seat has a revised folding arrangement reducing obstruction. Steps on the right of the cab fold in for protection but fold out for ease of use when needed. Also on the right is a space for a cantilever toolbox which slides out on a tray at a convenient angle for access. Mirrors adjust from in the cab including telescopic arms which can be extended to see around large implements and trailers, but which can be retracted to avoid damage when not needed. Optional front and rear cameras can be specified including a wideangle camera mounted at the front of the bonnet. This is especially useful for situations such as pulling out from field gateways onto roads where the view from the cab is obscured by hedges, by allowing the driver to safely check on the

VarioTerminal screen for traffic. Improved security includes a unique key pattern for each tractor, plus an optional immobiliser which is specified by most buyers An automatic parking brake adds convenience, setting and releasing automatically when the drive selector is pushed to park, and when pulling away. There is also an effective exhaust brake, providing approximately 50 per cent more braking force than the previous version and saving wear and tear on the mechanical brakes during transport tasks. There are four specification levels; Power, PowerPlus, Profi and ProfiPlus. The top two levels have additional functions available through a multi-function joystick and the ProfiPlus top version has a 10.4-in touch-screen VarioTerminal. The 942 Vario demonstrator was the ProfiPlus specification and fitted with many upgrades to the standard set-up. A superb sound system is available offering Bluetooth connectivity for phones and media. Eight microphones distributed around the roof mean that no matter continued over...

It achieves this without any fuss or operator intervention and its ability to adjust automatically and progressively means there is no indication to the operator that drive distribution is changing. The new Fendt 900 Vario line-up are premium tractors designed for professional farmers and contractors and come with a premium price tag, but investing a little extra in features such as VarioGrip and Grip Assist will ensure optimum performance and efficiency can be achieved for field tasks, increasing work rates and reducing fuel consumption, and should enhance resale values too. The new 942 Vario has a list price of £300,887 in the base Power specification, rising to £317,150 for the top ProfiPlus spec. Average price premium over previous equivalent models is £9,000 across the series. VarioGrip adds approximately £13,454 while Grip Assistant adds a further £301 and it is likely that with VarioDrive transmission offering increased benefits over conventional systems, many of the new tractors’ buyers will invest in the technology. Of the previous 900 Vario model line-up, the most powerful 939

accounted for almost half of total unit sales so it is likely the new 942 Vario flagship will become the new best seller, with the 939 Vario and 936 Vario sharing most of the remaining sales volume. ■

Peter Henson is pictured with the new 942 Vario. He believes the new MAN engine and VarioDrive transmission will prove attractive and sales will be from current twin-track crawler owners as well as those using current 900-series tractors and competitor brands.

Quick-change digging unit for 2-row harvesters The new quick-change digging unit from AVR has been adapted so that it can be easily dismounted .

Machinery manufacturer AVR has revealed its new quick-change digging unit at an event in Belgium. As of 2020, this option will be available on all two-row trailed AVR harvesters. The existing digging unit was adapted in such a way that it can be easily dismounted, without having to open the digging web or remove the shear holder separately. The entire digging unit frame and the digging unit can be removed quickly. To do so, the user just has to detach a few mechanical couplings and clamps. The included support legs/ wheels make it easy to retract or correctly position the digging units (on a hardened substrate) says AVR. In its place a digging unit frame with onion unit can be mounted. The onion unit has a foam-rubber roller (available in 900mm and 1,200mm sizes, depending on swath width) which helps the onions into the machine and closes off the digging unit at the same time when lifting. The AVR onion unit has also received a few minor updates including depth control by means of skis with depth adjustment wheels an option. Additionally the roller has a wider adjustment range. Another new option is rowindependent planting on its trailed four-row Ceres 450. Each planting element is driven separately by its own hydraulic motor. Speed sensors in the wheel and in the four planting elements ensure a correct measurement and feedback on speed and planting distance per row. With one hydraulic motor per row, the user can quickly turn a row on or off or set the planting speed differently for each row to achieve variable-rate drilling, for example on headlands, along spray paths or for rows left and right of the spray path. When using the on/off button per row, the function works immediately without any time loss, for precise control when linked to GPS. All new Ceres 450 planters can now also be built with the new Isobus link which can be retrofitted onto existing Ceres 450 planters. ■

Machinery A 1977 T-reg New Holland 8070 combine performs well harvesting 100ha of cereals for the Harvey family (trading as MJ Harvey), which says it has no intention of updating it.

Celebrating 60 years of UK harvesting In 1959, the first Claeys MZ combine harvesters took to the harvest fields of the UK for the first time. Sixty years later the Claeys combine family, which later became New Holland, retains a strong reputation for performance and reliability. Many older machines are still in operation and David Williams visited a Hertfordshire farm where a 1977 example is in regular use and its owners have no intention of updating. By the 1960s Claeys was one of the largest European combine manufacturers. The company was taken over by Sperry New Holland in 1964, changed its brand name to Clayson in 1967 and merged with Ford in 1986. The New Holland name gained extra prominence from 1991 when Ford was acquired by Fiatagri and New Holland became the recognised agricultural brand for the full range of combines, tractors and balers.

from local dealer Braceys of Benington, Herts its extra capacity over the 2 previous machines was needed to harvest 245ha of crops including wheat, barley, oats, beans, linseed and peas and the 15ft header was considered essential to achieve the work rates needed. “Our family dealt with Braces a lot for much of the machinery and received good service,” explains Michael. “It was convenient being close to the farm too.”

High output

New Holland 8070

During the 1970s New Holland 8070 and 8080 combines were a common sight on larger arable farms and Richard ‘Jim’ Harvey who farmed at Bury Green, near Ware bought his ex-demonstration 8070 in 1977, replacing 2 smaller models including a New Holland 1540 with a 14ft header and an older New Holland 122 with a smaller 10ft header. “My late father ran the 2 combines on 2 farms,” explains Michael Harvey who owns and runs the farm now with his wife Gill, and assisted by their daughter Ella. When the 8070 was purchased

Engine – Ford 6cyl, 5.945-litre turbo Power – 140hp Transmission – 3-speed Fuel tank capacity – 300 litres Std cutter head – 4.57m Since the 1990s the Harvey family has reduced the area farmed to 100ha of owned land which includes 24ha of grassland for horses at the farm’s other main enterprise - a thriving livery yard. Arable crops on the predominantly heavy land include wheat and barley, mainly later maturing varieties which

means harvest in a typical year starts in late August, and the aim is to finish within 10 days. “We rely on the combine to harvest our crops at the optimum time for a quality sample when moisture content is ideal for storage, so it’s looked after well, kept under cover and serviced each winter,” explained Michael. “We have never had any major problems with it and unlike modern combines if our 8070 does need attention; it’s likely to be belts, chains or a bearing - all of which are easily fixed on farm.”

Ella Harvey is pictured with a sample of wheat direct from the combine.

Brand and dealer loyalty Michael has a strong loyalty to Ford and New Holland products, partly due to their proven reliability on the farm and also because of the back-up which has always been available from the local Benington dealer depot, formally Braceys and later part of Ernest Doe & Sons. Other New Holland products operated include 2 tractors – a TM130 and an 8340, both very reliable. “We have considered changing continued over...

Michael Harvey drives the combine, but also transports the crop to the farm store which restricts daily work rates.

the combine but then the obvious upgrade would be to move to a wider header, but that wouldn’t fit down the narrow lanes locally,” Michael said. “If we were to update then obviously it would be to another New Holland,” he added. Asked about parts availability, Michael confirmed that anything required has been available almost immediately and the only complication is that parts books and microfiches have to be used for part number identification rather than the quicker modern computer-based parts systems. “Our usual contact is Ernest Doe Bennington area sales manager Rob Freestone, and he lives locally and knows our machines well. If anything is needed he helps

identify it at the depot and then sometimes delivers it after work which is a great help. The service from everyone there is excellent.”

Sufficient performance The Harvey’s combine achieves average work rates of approximately 9ha per day, but it could achieve more if Michael wasn’t also transporting grain from the field to the farm store. “It does what we need it to, and it’s very easy to set up for a great sample with minimum losses,” he added. “With straw walkers rather than a rotary separator the straw is in good condition for baling too, and there is really no point in us updating it unless something major goes wrong.” ■

New Holland machinery from the local Ernest Doe Bennington depot is favoured by the farm.

Mechanical solution to post driving

Potential customers sometimes comment that there are “cheaper options on the internet,” say the team at Easy Petrol Post Driver. “We’re not going to hide from that fact. Nor are we going to hide any details about why we passionately believe in this product,” they add. The features include a 4-stroke Honda engine with good fuel efficiency, renowned reliability and an easy start. “Yet it’s the combination of the high-quality machine engineering with a powerful engine that really amplifies the functionality”. The gearbox reduces 5,000rpm engine speed to 1,720rpm at the piston. The piston then forces an air compression down the steel liner of the machine (at a rate of 1,720bpm). In turn, this compression of air drives the hardened-steel hammer flush onto the top of the post, driving the post firmly into the ground. Applying a downward force to the machine while initiating the throttle, instigates the return of the hammer up the body of the machine, which then begins the process again explains the company. The precise engineering involved results in the machine being low maintenance. In fact, all that is required is to check the bolts are tight before use and every couple of months remove the Christie Engineering cover plate to re-grease. An annual service to change the o-rings completes the servicing schedule. Machines are in stock at both the importer’s head office and showroom in Sheffield and across its distributor network. All servicing, repairs and warranties are handled in-house at Sheffield. ■

The Easy Petrol Post Driver combines Australian engineering with a Honda engine and a three-year commercial machine warranty.

ATV test

Best-selling ATVs updated Honda has updated its best-selling Fourtrax and Foreman ATVs, with additional features promising improved performance and greater practicality. David Williams tried them out. More than half the new ATVs sold in the UK each year are Hondas, so it’s essential that any changes made to its best-selling models offer genuine improvements. TRX420 Fourtrax models are particularly popular with hill and livestock farmers where their light weight and superb agility makes them ideal for shepherding and other livestock tasks. The larger TRX500 Foreman machines are capable of handling heavier loads with ease, including trailers up to 600kg and, although many sales are also to livestock farms, they are often chosen by arable farmers and gamekeepers. The updated models result from the need to comply with increasingly stringent emissions regulations for offroad vehicles, and Honda head of Power Equipment Steve Morris commented that the company’s objective was not only to comply

with latest requirements, but also to ensure previous high standards of reliability and efficiency were maintained or improved upon. The line-up is as before including 5 TRX420 models, all with longitudinally-mounted, liquidcooled and fuel-injected, 420cc 4-stroke petrol engines. All have selectable 2/4wd, and there is a choice of transmissions; including foot- or thumb-operated manual, or a dual-clutch automatic with manual override. The Foreman line-up is also as before including 4 models - but the main change is increased 518cc engine size (475cc previously) and a new TRX520 model designation. All have longitudinally-mounted, liquid-cooled and fuel injected petrol engines, selectable 2/4wd and a similar choice of transmissions to TRX420 models, except that the FA6 automatic also has high and low range selection.

The new TRX520FA6 (right) beside its predecessor, the TRX500FA6.

Range updates Externally, one of the most noticeable changes are new load racks which are strengthened and have a flatter surface for improved load and attachment mounting. Paint quality is also improved. All models gain a handy water-resistant storage box within the upper section of the front rack. Underneath, improved impact protection is provided for suspension arms, drive shafts and outboard CV joints by full-length guards. The CV boot protectors are improved, made from new material for increased durability. The TRX520FA6 also gains a new

front grille for improved radiator protection, and all TRX520 models have new decals. Other updates improve ease of use and add convenience. Models with automatic or push-button gear shifting gain the ability to select reverse gear from any forward gear or from neutral, in one movement. The new ‘forward/reverse skip switch’ is fully electronic and as well as making reverse selection easier it will appeal to operators whose use requires frequent direction changes such as yard scraping or mowing around trees, with faster operation.

the new red reverse selector switch on the left handlebar, then shifting down immediately selects reverse, bypassing intermediate gears if a higher forward ratio was previously selected. Pressing the up button once returns the transmission to neutral, and depressing it again selects first gear or Drive. A safety restriction prevents reverse selection if the machine is travelling faster than 3kph. The new reverse selector replaces the previous mechanical lever and cable-operated system. For ES models, and auto models operating in manual shift mode, new shift map programming improves smoothness of gear changes. Previously the shift management system detected the riding style and adjusted the rate of gear and clutch engagement based on the engine speed just before the gear change. The latest version monitors the engine speed during the shift process for improved matching, resulting in smoother changes at all speeds and in all situations.

MOULTON YARD SCRAPER YS4H Heavy push pull swing over action yard scraper, for use on 3 point linkage with category 1 & 2 linkage pins, the head stock is designed to accept a standard tractor A frame. The swing over latch is released by means of a rope, which can be operated from the tractor seat.

Improved control Automatic models also gain temporary manual override, even when automatic mode is selected. Previously the rider selected either electric shift programme (ESP) or auto modes. ESP allows the user to change gear manually using the up and down selector buttons on the handlebar. In ESP mode the gear selected is retained until the rider either selects a different ratio using the up or down buttons, or until the mode switch is used to select auto. The new models allow riders to combine advantages of both modes; enjoying the convenience of full automatic gear changing, but able to swap to manual mode temporarily at any time, just by touching the up or down shift buttons. This is especially useful when approaching a steep slope as the rider can select a lower gear in advance, for maximum power or for maximum engine braking. If the shift button isn’t touched again for a short period then the system returns to auto mode, selecting a gear to match the speed and conditions. However, if the system detects that it is safer to retain manual mode, during a steep hill descent for example; then

the selected low gear is retained until conditions ease.

Test drive proves benefits A test drive of the new models also provided an opportunity to compare the TRX520 with its TRX500 predecessor. The off-road riding included steep wooded slopes and plenty of obstructions from deep ruts to tree stumps and fallen branches. Shifting between forward gears was detectably smoother on the new models as the gear change adjusted to suit the engine speed, avoiding snatching as drive was taken up or sudden decreased speed while slowing down. In reality the time difference during shifts is minimal, but comfort on the new models is improved. The biggest advantage over previous models was being able to use auto mode during demanding off-road riding knowing that if the situation required, then lower gears could be manually selected just by touching the thumb shift button. Previously the rider would have had to select ESP mode and then shift the gears. Riding in auto mode allows continued over...

the rider to give full attention to the surroundings and terrain without the distraction of gear changing, but for steep hill descents being able to select a lower gear instantly if it is needed is reassuring. The Honda system works well - on the flat pressing the up or down buttons selects and retains gears until the operator selects the next higher or lower gear manually or, if no further button presses are detected then auto operation resumes. However, during long hill descents the low gear chosen for maximum engine braking is retained until the transmission detects it is no longer needed, and then returns to auto mode. The new reverse selector works well and saves time during direction changes. Reverse is engaged as soon as the forward speed is low enough; drive take-up is progressive and the improved operation will appeal to all users.

Bigger engine Increasing the Foreman’s engine size from 475cc to 518cc has enabled Honda to meet the latest emissions regulations while also achieving a small increase in power and torque. “Our ATVs are used for all sorts of

applications,” pointed out Honda ATV area sales manager for Northern England, Damian Butterworth, “but average operating speed for a utility ATV in the UK is approximately 10kph, so having machines designed to work reliably at low speeds in demanding conditions off-road and capable of moving heavy loads is the priority for professional users, rather than achieving high maximum speed.” The test drive provided plenty of opportunity to try out the low speed torque available including crossing shallow ditches and negotiating fallen branches. Because Honda’s ATV engines are designed specifically for the application with plenty of low speed torque, the drive clutches fully engage at very low revs. This not only increases fuel efficiency and reduces operating noise, but it also improves control when operating in challenging terrain as very low travel speeds can be maintained.

and free of charge operator training is included through the industry’s EASI scheme. Currently, purchasers of any of Honda’s range of new ATVs can also take advantage of a Datatool TrakKing Adventure anti-theft system free of charge, with only a monthly subscription to pay.

Verdict Honda’s launch event and test drive demonstrated the new features and benefits of the latest models, and particularly those with electric

or automatic gear shift. Additional control in demanding situations and increased ease of use such as selecting reverse gear in one movement will appeal to users and offer genuine advantages in a work environment. Most updates affect the larger Foreman 520 models, and with the new list price for the top TRX520FA6 representing an increase of only £270 over its predecessor, it will be the model of choice for current Honda Foreman owners and will also be attractive to current users of other brands. ■

Prices announced New model prices start at £6,425 for the TRX420FM1, the TRX520FM2 costs £7,850 and the TRX520FA6 has a list price of £8,600. When purchased through Honda’s authorised UK dealer network, the standard factory warranty is 2 years,

Silver anniversary and investment for the future  Lincs-based Scotts Precision Manufacturing celebrates 25 years trading this year. The family owned business is best known for its Evolution Separators and Trinity potato row toppers .

best year to date, although sales to date for 2019 are 50 per cent higher still. The Evolution Separator is now a standard fitment in grading lines manufactured by Tong and Haith and it is also supplied and fitted by 20 other manufacturers world-wide for grading lines and harvesters, with demand growing rapidly especially from the USA and Canada.

A potato machinery manufacturing business that started with very little capital 25 years ago is thriving, and investing heavily to meet increasing demand for its products. David Williams reports. Derek Scott started working with potato machinery when he was 16 on a Lincolnshire farm, later joining the team of TRP - part of long-established potato machinery specialist Richard Pearson, as a service engineer. Derek specialised in Grimme products but in 1994 when Grimme and Richard Pearson parted ways he was one of several service engineers who left the company. Derek set up on his own operating from a transit van, offering a mobile engineering service, and specialising in Grimme equipment. He was joined by other service engineers who had worked with him previously and the venture was successful attracting customers across the region. Derek was also asked by Grimme to manufacture elected components and by 1998 Derek’s company had been appointed as an official Grimme dealer. A suitable premises was needed and Derek rented a site on the outskirts of Boston. “I knew very little about accounts or management, but I did know about problem solving and we ‘winged it’, with the business doing well,” he explained. Disaster struck in 2005 when Grimme announced it was setting up its own UK sales and service subsidiary and several experienced staff left Derek to work for the importer. “We had to look at how the business could survive,” said Derek. “Having set up a business reliant on one manufacturer didn’t give us the security we needed and we decided that in future we wouldn’t put ourselves in that situation again and concentrated on manufacturing.”

Change of direction The rented premises was too large for the remaining team and Derek terminated the lease and relocated to a spare farm building owned by his father at Eastville, near Boston. “We knew we had the skills to manufacture products and components and in autumn 2005 we met Yorkshire farmer Guy Poskitt who commissioned us to build him a bespoke separator for his carrots. We owe a lot to him as money was too tight for us to invest in its development, but he had enough faith in our ability to produce what he needed and paid us in advance.” The first Evolution Separator was produced with the same unique cleaning table design as current models, and when it was installed in the farm’s cleaning line it worked so well and with such high output that a potential order for a second unit didn’t follow as it was no longer needed. However, local potato handling and cleaning equipment manufacturer Tong heard about the new cleaning table and took it on to fit to its own machines.

Topping demand Haulm toppers are another product with which the company has enjoyed recent success as demand has increased since the ban on using Diquat for potato foliage desiccation pre-harvest. Scotts offers its Trinity line-up in sizes from single to triple bed - allowing up to six rows to be chopped in one pass. Quick change flails are a popular feature, an integral shear plate ensures thorough leaf mulching and a replaceable steel hood liner extends working life. “We had already sold out of this year’s intended production by April and, having invested in increased manufacturing facilities we aim to triple production for 2020 but a third of the machines we will build have already been ordered,” Derek explained. “Our haulm toppers are strongly made and can handle a lot of power which means high work rates are achievable. For next year we are developing a nine-row version for three beds at a time and expect high demand when potential buyers see it.” Fully mounted wind-rowers have been developed over several seasons and are a strong addition to the range, mainly to satisfy the requirements of the flower

bulb industry. “Demand has been particularly high from growers in Cornwall,” explained Derek. “They have to be able to handle immovable lumps of granite which cause problems for other brands so our heavy duty machines are preferred.” Most haulm toppers are sold direct to end users whereas the Evolution Separators are almost all supplied to trade for fitting to new machines. We have worked closely with ScanStone over a number of years supplying Evolution Separators for installation in to ScanStone harvesting products, and the company sells and services Scotts Trinity haulm toppers in Scotland. In turn we have supplied and continue to support a range of the company’s products in our local area, specialising in windrowers.

British made Scotts Precision Manufacturing is the leading British manufacturer of haulm toppers and Derek said this aspect of the product range adds to its appeal with users. “We not only manufacture but we also offer a seven-day service, we aim to be on site to set machines off for the first time and we are always available to provide back-up. We use only topend components and bespoke parts are either made for us or by us. We tick every box of what our customers need and we believe most UK farmers prefer buying British when they can.” Derek runs the business with co-director and designer Matt Shaw who is also his brother-in-law and a company shareholder, while Steve Harker and Malcolm Perdeaux look after the workshop logistics. “We have a great team and can rely on everyone to get on with what needs doing with minimum supervision. continued over...

Unique design “The Evolution is unique in its roller spacing, and because the cleaning rollers can be set to rotate in either direction it can be used for almost any crop,” explained Derek. “We have supplied units to clean apples, melons, bell peppers, onions, carrots, flower bulbs, grapes, tomatoes, celeriac and chicory and all types of potatoes.” Ten were sold in the first year and more than 500 had been supplied by the end of 2018 which was the

We try to attract and retain young people and provide training to help them become skilled engineers which is proving successful. Looking at the long-term future of the business we need good staff and we pay well, try to provide excellent working conditions and, as a result, have a very low staff turnover.”

Manufacturing improvements Soon after moving to his father’s yard, Derek purchased the workshop building and it was refurbished, improving conditions for the manufacturing team. But growing demand meant the space available was inadequate and a program of investment assisted by several EU grants has resulted in purposedesigned new buildings being erected on the site, with the latest

manufacturing equipment allowing faster production to an even higher standard. In late 2018 a CNC lathe was installed, capable of automatically manufacturing shafts to complex designs while its supervisor worked on additional tasks. “Previously we waited for engineers to finish each shaft to fit to machines,” said Derek, “but now the lathe produces them faster and more accurately. It’s so easy to set up and use too, even for less experienced operators.” A press brake was installed recently allowing more panels and hoods to be manufactured in-house. Previously production was outsourced, but manufacturing in house will save money and time, and ensure stock is available when needed. Panel specifications are loaded into the computerised machine by part number, and to produce parts of the correct shape the operator has only to enter the part number needed and then follow the instructions on the screen while fold angles are produced automatically.

The new two-storey offices will include a customer reception and parts counter.

In-house production Unusually for a root crop cleaner manufacturer, Derek’s company has also started making its own polyurethane cleaner rollers. “They used to be very expensive to buy in but we saw the potential for making our own; particularly because it meant we could get better control of supply and also produce versions of different sizes or profiles easily when needed. Using our 3D printer we can design and manufacture a new profile for a bespoke application in just a few days whereas before it would have taken several weeks and been very expensive.” Being able to manufacture

polyurethane rollers quickly and cheaply means that as well as manufacturing for his own products, Derek also supplies replacements to fit Grimme machines, sold through Pan Anglia.

New offices The latest investment is in new offices to replace the ageing Porta-cabin which has housed the sales and administration department for many years. This will join the workshops as well as the parts store and includes a combined parts counter and customer reception. “We have approximately 16 staff working from the site now,” explained Derek, “including 4 mobile service engineers who spend most of their time assembling machines in the yard. We deal with professional customers, our business is profitable and growing, and we are still taking on extra employees to meet future demand. We have had some tough times, but with high customer satisfaction and a successful product line-up, specialising in an industry we know so well for 25 years has proved successful.” Looking to the future, Derek’s own children are growing up surrounded by machinery and both are keen to be involved in the business. ■

Swift Lift elevators by Terry Johnson Ltd have been in production for more than 50 years. The first 30ft version cost £590 and was displayed at the East of England Show in 1969, on a trade stand costing £44. The stand invoice (above).

50 years of elevation celebrated

Swift Lift elevators have become a household name in the farming industry, seen frequently at trade shows and in use wherever vegetables, cereals and root crops are being handled and stored. The brand celebrates 50 years of continuous production this year, with manufacture having started when man first visited the Moon and Concorde made its maiden flight. David Williams reports. The Swift Lift brand was created by Peter Cunnington in 1969 and his first elevator - a 30ft model costing £590 - was displayed that year at the East of England Show. The elevator represented very good value, points out Terry Johnson Ltd sales and marketing director Paul Johnson, adding that the bill for the 1,200ft2 stand space that year was just £44. Terry Johnson Ltd started trading in 1986, when founder Terry Johnson set up his own business after his previous employer Hestair Farm Equipment announced its intention to withdraw from agricultural product manufacturing. Working from rented premises in Boston Road, Holbeach, Lincs, Terry had the opportunity to buy Swift Lift from Peter Cunnington in 1994, also purchasing the Cranmore Lane production premises where the company continues trading today.

The company is owned by Paul and his sister Mandy who took over running the business when their father retired 12 years ago. Paul explained that the family’s dedication to product quality and customer service and backup is what has made the company so successful and that will continue.

Versatile product Since the first Swift Lift elevator was manufactured the range has evolved with versions to handle most farm products, although most demand is still for potatoes, onions, carrots and cereals. Also being handled by the company's elevators are products as diverse as China clay and ice. Paul said that in common with other farm machinery, demand for larger sizes and increased capacity is growing, and a 900mm-wide belt elevator in the company’s Extendo range is the

current flagship. “They are well made, simple to operate and reliable which has earned them an excellent reputation within the industry,” explained Paul. “A soft rubber compound belt is efficient and ensures gentle handling of delicate crops even with modern high work rates.”

Sizes to suit The Swift Lift range includes the most popular Extendo series in 600 and 900mm belt widths and the standard model is up to 14.1m long when fully extended, but retracts to just 9.1m making it convenient to transport and store. Standard features include variable speed drive, an automatic slewing platform, luffing head and a low intake height. The belts have 25mm cleats to reduce rollback and keep handling damage to a

minimum. Optional extras include remote control, power transmission, a Safedown End Descender, panel cover and probe. Two Interstore elevator models are offered - the Interstore L which is the entry-level series from 4.5–7.5m overall length and offering lift height from 1.00–3.97m; and the Interstore T which is from 9.0–12.0m overall length and offers lift height from 1.00–7.54m. There is also an Interstore conveyor which, as a single unit, is available in lengths from 4.50–9.75m and offers lifting height up to 1.04m. Up-and-Over double conveyors provide working lengths from 8.80m extending to 14.30m or a larger model extends from 11.05m to 18.80m and provides a lift height up to 1.04m. The largest Euro elevators offer highest outputs (in excess of 120tph) for large-scale farm storage or industrial applications, and models are available from 8.5m to 19.0m with belt widths of 600 or 900mm. Models up to 13m are available with single or 3-phase, petrol or diesel-engine power units.

Rising demand “We sell the full range of elevators throughout the UK and have a growing export business too, including recent sales to Australia and New Zealand. The first elevator sold to Australia resulted from a farm manager from the UK taking over a farm there which grew onions.

he recommended the Swift Lift to the owner and the order was placed. The same company also uses its Extendo to load walnuts into containers for export. We have also recently sold a machine in to Russia and believe that its operation there will stimulate further orders. Looking to the future, Paul said that when compared to the original Swift Lift machine which was 30ft long, the latest 60ft models are quite a contrast and he also pointed out that work rates have increased over the same period from an original 40– 50tph to being capable of emptying an 18t trailer in under 6 minutes. There is always demand for higher work rates and increased convenience, he explained. As well as gaining sales by recommendation Paul says the brand’s success is also down to the growing popularity of Farmers Guide. “Many Swift Lift elevators were supplied to customers in East Anglia and Yorkshire in the early days - areas where the advertising and coverage in the magazine was noticed by potential

Seventh generation tractor reaches ‘new levels of precision’ Case IH spent time with farmers across the world to maximise their understanding of current agricultural requirements.

Just over three decades since it was unveiled, Case IH is launching the seventh generation of its Magnum AFS Connect tractor. Externally-obvious changes include a full-length door and new styling and lighting, but some of the most significant upgrades are inside the cab and the tractor itself, resulting in the new Magnum AFS Connect designation and a machine that helps the operator and owner to manage farming operations with new levels of precision, says the manufacturer. The range for the European market comprises of 5 models – the Magnum 280, 310, 340, 380 and 400 – with respective maximum power outputs of 351, 382, 409, and 435hp. The Magnum 400 is

available with 21/5 PowerDrive transmission only, offering 40 and 50kph at reduced engine speed. All models feature 8.7-litre FPT Industrial Cursor 9 6-cylinder turbocharged and intercooled engines which use the latest FPT Hi-eSCR2 technology to meet EU Stage 5 emissions legislation, with 13 patented developments, including a new catalyst, resulting in cleaner combustion. Models 340, 380 and 400 can also be specified in rear-tracked Rowtrac configuration. As before, the tractors have a rear lift capacity of up to 11,700kg while lift capacity of the front hitch, where fitted, is 4,090kg. Six remote valves are available at the rear and three at the front. Specifying

a front linkage does not now limit the number of rear spool valves. Hydraulic pump capacity options are 160, 221 or 282 litres/min. The range has been extended with the introduction of the Magnum 400 for even heavier and more demanding applications. “The new Magnum development began when we set out to research and understand what users today are looking for in this class and size of tractor, spending time with farmers across the world to maximise our understanding of their needs and requirements,” says Case IH global product manager for Magnum Brad Lukac. At the heart of the new Magnum models lies the recognition of the importance of data to today’s

farmers. That encompasses not just operating data such as the location of their machines, how they are performing and what they may require in terms of supplies such as fuel, but also data such as field records – area worked and rates of application, for example. All of this data can now be recorded and transferred securely in real time on the move with the AFS Connect telematics technology inside the new Magnum models. As a result, the new tractors allow owners and operators to adjust, manage, monitor and transfer data the way they want. AFS Connect is a new subscription-based telemetry package which integrates proven elements of Case IH Advanced Farming Systems technology to link fields, machines and data. The launch follows the preview of the cloud-based MyCaseIH. com web platform, AFS telematics portal and AFS Connect Mobile iOS/ Android app at SIMA 2019 earlier this continued over...

year. In combination, these elements automatically display and store machine and field data, and allow users to monitor and manage it both from an office computer and remotely from a smartphone or tablet. With permission, Case IH dealers can also monitor machines, helping ensure they are running at peak performance, and remotely identify any issues. Elsewhere in the Case IH portfolio a new 8.5m header specifically designed for controlled traffic farming is being added to the Axial-Flow range of combines and headers next year. The 8.5m Varicut header has been launched to cater for trafficcontrolled operations, based on an 8m system. It will use the frame of the existing 7.5m header, extended to 8.5m to save weight, with an actual cutting width of 8.5m, to ensure a true and repeatable 8m cut for an 8m controlled traffic system. The working width will be 8.53m (28ft) and offer all the same features and benefits as the other Varicut models. The mid-year 2020 grain headers will also feature a new crop lifter, which has been designed to reduce losses by using a higher lifting profile to better lift lodged crop up to the cutter bar. To help improve wear

The cab interior of Magnum tractors has been revised and refined throughout to create a new operator environment.

resistance, the new crop lifters will also feature a wave formed skid. Meanwhile, the Axial-Flow combines will offer a new LED light package, including LED row finder lights for safer harvesting at night.  Combines manufactured from February 2020 will meet Stage 5 emissions regulations for the EU region. There will be new model numbering for the mid-range combine series with the 140 series combine range changing to the 150 series, to reflect the move to Stage 5 Engines. The 7150 model will also feature increased engine power, moving from a rated boost power of 402 up to 413hp, and a peak power of 453hp compared to its current 442hp. ■

Farm sale

Successful early autumn farm machinery sale  The auction was arranged by TW Gaze on behalf of the Pilgrim family. Brothers Richard (left) and Adrian Pilgrim are pictured with one of the two auctioneers on the day Edward Baskerville.

One of the first of this autumn’s farm machinery auctions provided an opportunity to take home lots including an immaculate 2013 Valtra, a very original 38 year-old Ford tractor and even a helicopter. David Williams was there. The sale at Bishops Farm, Eccles near Attleborough was arranged by the team of long-established local auctioneer TW Gaze and was on behalf of MW Pilgrim & Sons for who the firm has acted for many years across all agricultural matters. The Pilgrim family has been farming the land for three generations and the machinery sale results from a machinery rationalisation exercise by brothers Adrian and Richard. Although there were some included lots from local family farms,

most were from the Pilgrim’s enterprise which includes approximately 315ha of arable cropping. “We have always looked after our machinery keeping it under cover and making sure it is maintained properly,” explained Adrian Pilgrim. “Most was bought from local dealers and approximately half the lots on offer started life on our farm, including two of the tractors.” Adrian said he and Richard were very pleased with the attendance and overall they were pleased with the

prices achieved by the auctioneers. “It was a typical farm sale and one always takes a chance with these events. Most items made good money, but as always there were a few lots we felt could have sold for more.”

Ideal timing The sale timing was ideal with most farms in the area having finished harvest a few weeks before and with the weather since having been too dry to risk establishing oilseed rape. Being an early sale and with plenty of field work to be done when the weather allowed, many of the buyers were keen to purchase machinery for use immediately on their own farms. Weather on the sale day started dry but drizzle moved in for a while during the sale of the indoor sundry

Mobile dryers have gained popularity in recent years. This 12t Master Super R/S diesel-fuelled model dated from 1984 and was one of the included lots. It sold for £1,850.

...More on previous page Two New Holland tractors were both included lots from a local farm. Nearest the camera is a T6010 on a 10 registration which had worked 9,600 hours. It was on Firestone 420/85R38 rear tyres with 20 per cent remaining tread and on the front it had a Good Year Optitrac 380/85R24 with 40 per cent tread on one side and a BKT Agrimax of the same size but with only 5 per cent tread on the other. It was generally tidy and made £15,000. The second New Holland was also a T6010 but was slightly newer on an 11-plate. It had worked 10,200 hours and was fitted with a front loader. The tyres had plenty of tread and the winning bid was £17,700.

This John Deere 6800 4wd tractor had also been used at Bishops Farm. It was a 1993 model on an L-registration and had worked 9,940 hours. It was on Semperit 18.4R38 rear tyres with 90 per cent tread and Pirelli 480/70R24 fronts with 40 per cent tread remaining. It made £10,000.

Also from Bishops Farm was this Valtra T213 Versu 4wd. It was in superb condition inside and out, having been on the farm since it was new, supplied by dealer J Riley Agri in 2013. It was registered on a 13-plate and had worked only 2,450 hours. It had a semi-powershift gearbox, front linkage and 5 spools and was on Michelin MultiBib 650/65R42 rear and 540/65R30 front tyres; all with 75 per cent tread. The Valtra made £45,000 and was bought by a Yorkshire farmer.

This Massey Ferguson 3060 Autotronic 2wd was new in 1990 and registered on an H-plate. It had recorded 6,640 hours but was on its second clock, and the transmission was said to be in need of attention. It was on Good Year 13.6R38 rear tyres which had 80 per cent tread but were perished and BKT10.00-16 fronts which had a similar amount of tread. The tractor carried a local Thurlow Nunn Standen dealer sticker and was one of the included lots. It made £4,600.

An unusual entry was this Massey Ferguson 203-7 loader tractor. It was an included lot and appeared to be on its original Firestone 16.8-24 rear tyres which were sound, but perished with very worn sidewalls. The winning bid was £1,000.

Mobile compressors are gaining popularity on farms, especially during harvest and in the drilling season for cleaning machinery down between fields. This Atlas Copco diesel-powered model was an included lot and appeared in good working order. The hour meter displayed 3,236 hours and the price achieved was £900.

Two JCB Fastracs were sold. Both were included lots from the same vendor. Nearest the camera is a 2002 52-plate 3190. The 193hp tractor had worked 7,400 hours and was on Nokian 540/65R30 tyres with 50 per cent tread. It appeared tidy, carried its original Suffolk Agri-Centre dealer stickers and made £12,500. The second Fastrac was a 145 model which was new in 1991 and registered on a J-plate. Michelin 495/70R24 tyres were fitted which had 10 per cent tread. It had worked 7,695 hours and was very tidy for its age resulting in a winning bid More over page... of £4,700.

Farm sale

...More on previous page This tidy Teagle Tomahawk 8080 trailed straw chopper and spreader was new in 2008 and was one of the included lots. It sold for £3,600.

An unusual lot which generated considerable interest but relatively few bids was this Rotor Way helicopter which was described as for spares or repairs. It appeared almost complete but had stood outside for several years with many components exposed to the weather. It came with two new blades and an intriguing feature was the seating arrangement which included what appeared to be two school-type plastic chairs. The winning bid of £340 was from a buyer from Bunwell, Norfolk who explained that he hopes to get the aircraft flying again. Auctioneer Mike Sarson is pictured taking bids. He commented that it was the first time he has sold a helicopter in his years as an auctioneer.

Two Bailey 18t TB grain trailers were available for bids - both from Bishops Farm. One (on the left of picture) was a 2017 model, with its original Ben Burgess dealer stickers, and was fitted with Alliance 560/60R22.5 flotation tyres with 70 per cent tread. It had a sprung drawbar, hydraulic tailgate, air brakes and a grain sheet and was in almost new condition inside and out. It made £16,000. The other trailer was new in 2006 and had a hydraulic tailgate, grain sheet and sprung drawbar. It was on a mix of Nokian and Trelleborg tyres, all with 30 per cent remaining tread and sold for £9,200.


Just in time for autumn leaf clearing, this Billy Goat self-propelled leaf vacuum was an included lot. It was powered by an 8hp Briggs & Stratton engine and appeared in superb condition. It sold for £160.

Pictured is auctioneer Edward Baskerville, assisted by Jenna Goodall Browne taking bids on a John Deere Starfire 6000 GPS receiver which made £1,800. A GreenStar 3 2630 display made £2,500.

The McCormick X8 VT-Drive could be seen working at Tillage-Live for the first time.


One step closer to a low carbon tractor

New tractor range revealed at Tillage-Live A fleet of McCormick X7 Series and X8 Series tractors – the primary models in the McCormick range for arable farm operations – supported several equipment manufacturers at Tillage-Live 2019. This event on September 4th was organised by AEA, the machinery manufacturers’ organisation, and held at Deenethorpe Airfield in Northamptonshire. McCormick dealers in the vicinity including Catley Engineering at Desford, Leics; A Downing Agricultural Engineers near March, Cambs; and the newly-appointed Northants dealership Venture Farm Machinery at Kettering also brought demonstration tractors to the event. The McCormick X8 VT-Drive could be seen working for the first time. There are 3 models spanning 264hp to 310hp and versatile CVT stepless transmission. McCormick X7 Series tractors

were also seen in action, giving event visitors the opportunity to compare the VT-Drive stepless and new P6-Drive transmissions, the latter serving up more powershift steps and a greater number of ratios than previous versions for even better control versatility. Both tractor series are available with Isobus implement control operated through a 12in colour touch-screen display used to set-up and adjust the tractor’s various powertrain, hydraulic and headland management functions. Topcon Agriculture precision farming technologies are also available using factory-installed electronics infrastructure for handsfree guidance, section control for drilling, fertiliser spreading and spraying, variable rate application and other functions that optimise productivity and inputs management. ■

The first pre-development of its Low Carbon Tractor (LoCT) has been unveiled by New Holland Agriculture. The tractor is a first result of the LoCT project, partly funded by the Advanced Propulsion Centre UK and led by the global capital goods company CNH Industrial together with its agricultural brand New Holland and its powertrain brand FPT Industrial. The project aims to design a commercially viable tractor capable of operation on biomethane while complying with the latest European and US emissions standards. It sees New Holland and FPT Industrial, working in partnership with Eminox, an exhaust after-treatment technology specialist, Zircotec, a thermal management and ceramic coating specialist, and Ricardo, an engineering consultant specialising in technology, project innovation and strategy. Meanwhile, New Holland Agriculture will now be able to

offer its customers AgDNA’s single point data integration, mapping and analytical tools. It follows CNH Industrial’s announcement of its agreement to acquire AgDNA. Paired with New Holland’s fleet management telematics, it will help farmers with decision making as they will be able to consolidate a range of data from a range of inputs such as machine, agronomic and third party data – including crop prices and weather information – into a single platform. The open platform works across data sources and brands and will make it possible for mixed fleet owners to view all data in a uniform manner in one place. ■

New rear mowers are cost effective and great for slopes Austrian manufacturer Pöttinger has redesigned its rear-mounted mowers with side pivot mounting. The low power requirement of the redesigned Novadisc is due to its lightweight construction. These advantages really come into play on steep inclines, rough ground and when mowing embankments, the company says. Due to their low power requirement, Novadisc models 222, 262, 302 and 352 with working widths between 2.20–3.46m can be operated by small tractors from 40hp upwards making these lightweight machines particularly suited to smaller farms in hilly terrain. The Novadisc rear mowers feature a new optimised centre of gravity, ensuring safe and compact road transport. During transport the mower is folded through 102 degrees. This provides a clear view to the rear in both rear-view mirrors. A low transport height is achieved by the hydraulic folding side guard (optional). In addition, the mower can be stowed vertically using the new, optional parking stand to save space.

The new generation of Novadisc rear mowers is cost effective and ideal on slopes.

The Novadisc 352 offers lightweight construction with high rigidity, says Pottinger.

The compact driveline and the drive belt tension regulated by a back tension idler ensure robust and reliable power transmission. The Novadisc rear mowers with side

pivot mounting are highly adaptable says Pottinger. The wide +22/-30 degree arc of movement enables easy mowing on rough ground and embankments. Mowing up to +45

degrees by lifting the interlock latch is also possible for short periods. Adjustable mounting pins mean these mowers can be hitched up to the tractor quickly and easily. ■

Hire company invests in huge UTV fleet Event equipment supply company Energy Generator Hire Ltd, based in Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire, has recently added 51 John Deere Gator 4x4 utility vehicles to its UK hire fleet, which now tops more than 170 units. Supplied by Farol of Milton Common near Thame in Oxfordshire and supported by John Deere Financial, the purchase of the XUV 855D 2-seater models was already the largest single order for Gators in the UK, before they were joined

shortly afterwards by another 12 S4 4-seater versions to keep up with customer demand. Energy Generator Hire was established in 2004 with just one generator by owner and managing director Tom Carr, who identified a market opportunity to offer a hire service to the events industry. The company now specialises in short, medium and long term hire of power and generation equipment to various industry sectors, including

events, construction, motor racing and, in the near future, the equestrian market. It will also be venturing into the electric vehicles sector in line with its sustainability and environmental policies. Energy bought its first John Deere Gator in 2015, initially for use at the company’s premises, but it wasn’t long before customers started enquiring about the vehicles and the Gator fleet has increased rapidly since.

“We’ve found that the John Deere Gator can handle all kinds of terrain with ease, and due to their high specification they can also be used safely and efficiently 24 hours a day by our ever-expanding client base, both indoors if required as well as outdoors,” said Tom. “In addition, all of our hire vehicles are Trackered and barcoded, not only for security but also to ensure fleet management and logistics are streamlined.” ■

TMK Tree Shear

The is efficient and strong. It provides a quick and easy way to cut and clear through hard and softwood vegetation.

Half the cost, half the time...

We share some highlights from this year’s UK Dairy Day, held at Telford International Centre on September 11th 2019. Now in its sixth year, the one-day event attracted more than 9,000 visitors. It’s organised by Holstein UK, with support from a wealth of other businesses and organisations within the dairy sector. Rachael Porter writes.

“Based on a 200-cow herd, this could lead to financial losses of up to £105,000 during a 12-month period. So tackling feed waste offers a huge opportunity to boost the bottom line. “And while it is a challenging area, there are practical steps that can be taken.”

Excellent silage-making year

Show ring results highlights

The coming winter looks set to be a good one for UK dairy producers, with better quality silage and increased stocks pointing towards reduced feed costs and improved production from forage. That was the message from Trouw Nutrition GB’s Liz Homer (right) at UK Dairy Day, who shared the results of 4,500 first-cut grass samples, 1,000 second cuts, and more than 500 wholecrop samples analysed so far this year. “Good weather and the adoption of multi-cut systems by many producers mean that silage stocks are typically higher and the quality is looking good,” she said. “Together these should allow higher forage intakes, improve rumen performance, and the potential to reduce purchased feed costs per litre. “The high quality seen in the early first cuts has continued into later cuts. Grass silage is drier, on the whole, with good energy and protein contents. And wholecrop has a higher starch content, but slightly depressed energy levels overall.” Dr Homer added that while silages are analysing better (see Table 1), there is a range in the results: “This means that it is essential that producers get clamps analysed regularly. The priority must be to understand how the forages will feed and to balance them appropriately.” Dr Homer said that there should be the opportunity to drive forage intakes, with each additional 1kg of forage dry matter fed allowing a reduction of 0.8kgDM from concentrates. “This will help to increase margins.” To maximise intakes she stresses the need to avoid the TMR or clamps heating, to mix the diet correctly, to push feed up regularly, and to optimise total ration dry matter at between 45 per cent and 50 per cent.

“Producers could be on the brink of a more profitable winter, but the imperative will be to maximise the value in the clamp by balancing diets carefully, targeting higher forage dry matter intakes and having faith in the forage and not oversupplementing diets.”

Cut feed waste to drive profit margins Producers can now benefit from a pioneering advice service that aims to increase profit margins by a minimum of 1.2ppl through reducing feed waste and optimising input utilisation. Launched at UK Dairy Day, Alltech Navigate aims to support the dairy industry on the journey to higher business resilience. The advice service, which is free to access, involves a simple three-step process; assess, analyse, action. “A two-hour on-farm assessment looks, at detail, into the four key areas where feed waste can occur,” said the company’s Ian Leach. These areas include; in the field, during storage, at feed-out, and inside the cow. “Data collected during the assessment is then analysed using the programming tool in order to produce percentage losses, and monetary values, to illustrate the financial pinch-points,” he added. “Finally, a concise report, containing actionable recommendations is generated to help farmers make well-informed strategic decisions on what steps, and potential investment, is required to help reduce feed waste and optimise input utilisation.” Results from the latest Alltech feed waste reduction and utilisation on-farm pilot study, which looked specifically at higher-efficiency UK dairy herds, highlighted that feed waste could be costing as much as £216 per cow, per year. “However, the reality is that this figure could be much higher depending on the system in place. For example, results from our first pilot study, which assessed a broad spectrum of dairy farms, revealed that the average waste value per cow sat at £522.44 per annum,” he said.

Maximising carcase value when selling deadweight

With the majority of prime beef cattle and young bulls now being sold deadweight, more finishers are becoming attuned to the need to avoid out-of-spec penalties. However, they are also keen to ensure cattle do not fall too far short of their processor’s maximum top weight and so forfeit potential value. For many professional finishers, regular weighing is the solution even though they might consider themselves to be fairly accurate at estimating weight by eye. One Scottish producer however, has discovered that the stress involved in regular ‘manual’ weighing

sessions could in fact slow down or even temporarily halt an animal’s growth rate, and this is something which can go undetected. The family business, popularly known as Greens of Corskie, is run by Iain Green and family, trading as W.J. and J. Green. The business is based at Corskie Farm, Garmouth in Morayshire, and totals 1,716ha. This comprises of their own 3 farms along with a number of contract farming agreements. They have some 905ha of cropping along with cattle, sheep and pigs. The cattle enterprise includes the Greens’ well-known herd of 180 pedigree

Simmentals under the Corskie prefix which have been on the farm for more than 30 years. It has been a closed herd for many years, only buying in bulls, and runs in tandem with approximately 380 Simmental cross cows and in-calf heifers. Progeny are reared for both pedigree replacements, market stores and some which are taken on to finishing. ”All we finish here are heifers not suitable for breeding, plus autumn born young bulls from the suckler herd, and all the pedigree Simmental bulls we consider not good enough for one reason or another for sale as breeding animals,” explains Iain Green. “Bulls are finished on ad-lib bought-in ration plus hay and bedded on straw.” The farm is regularly involved in trials and Greens is a participant in the three-year monitor farm programme in Scotland funded by the Scottish Government and EU’s Knowledge Transfer and Innovation Fund. The business has been evaluating a new automatic weighing system for beef cattle in which the animals voluntarily enter the weigher with no human persuasion. It was the results recorded from this technology which drew the Greens’ attention to the fact that the regular handling to assess fat depth and eye muscle by ultrasound, as part of their Breedplan recording programme with the British Simmental Cattle Society, did in fact impact on weight gain. “When we did this with a bunch of 32 pedigree bulls, the automatic weighings afterward, revealed it took between 7–10 days before these bulls began to put on weight again,” says Iain’s daughter Laura. “We are quite sure this can be put down simply to the stress of being handled. Anything

which can be automated to minimise the need to handle cattle has got to be good for both men and cattle, and of course, it will reduce the days to slaughter.” The weighing system is the Ritchie Beef Monitor which is designed to work with groups of up to 50 animals, similar to the group sizes used at Corskie. It is a free access crate with a load-bar weighing platform which the cattle visit several times a day to drink. Carrying EID eartags, the cattle are automatically identified as they lower their heads to the water, and the weight is recorded and transmitted to cloud-based storage. The weights for each animal are averaged at the end of each day to produce both the actual weight and updated daily gain, and weights therefore are a combination of full or empty stomachs and bladders. “We have found that some animals might visit 12 times or so in a 24-hour period but the readings are averaged for the day and provide us with a very accurate indication of weight on an on-going basis,” says Laura. “The weighing system has revealed some interesting data we would otherwise have been unaware of, on top of the basic purpose of keeping a close eye on animal performance.” Iain Green is keen to ensure that to maximise returns, they are hitting abattoir spec with every animal: “This system is giving us the accuracy I could not achieve by eye and would have to weigh manually. We have been weighing pedigree animals conventionally for a long time and I have always liked to think I have a good eye for assessing weight, but I know it is not necessarily so. “What it means is we are not sending in cattle which will be

Livestock penalised on being over-weight – in our case 400kg deadweight for our buyer – but also we can take them closer to target weight safely. The system flags up all animals calculated to be 100kg off finishing.” Iain sends bulls to slaughter at 13-14 months of age weighing 700kg liveweight. “Since we have been using the Beef Monitor, our average deadweight has risen from 376kg to 399kg. That is an extra 23kg of value per beast and on that basis, coupled with few weight penalties, I think this system can certainly pay for itself,” he says. The system can recognise erroneous weights, like a beast with just a front leg on the weighing platform, and flags this up, as it will if an animal has lost a tag. “It can also be an indicator of a potential health problem, if an individual animal stops putting on weight while the rest are still gaining,” he adds. Farmers can access data from their own dashboard on the Ritchie website via office pc, laptop or a mobile app. There is a monthly charge of £25. The nine monitor farms in Scotland are run jointly with Quality Meat Scotland and AHDB Cereals and Oilseeds. ■

Feed pit and bale silage with ease The I-73 bale shear and I-75 multi shear manufactured by Tanco are designed to allow clean, safe and quick feeding of bale and pit silage. Feeding in narrow feed passages is possible as the bale is split forwards. The gripping mechanism does not tear the plastic in the critical area therefore retains the strength of the plastic, stopping it from ripping during the process, while holding only a fistful of silage from the bale. The position of the hydraulic rams, the blade design, and being able to adjust the position of the clamp mean the I-73 and I-75 cleanly cut bales of different sizes, as well as badly shaped bales says Tanco. Lund blades are used as standard and Hardox steel is used in the frame. Stonefork tines, held in place by machined heavy duty sleeves, are used which the company says is critical due to the high load factor as the blade cuts through the bale. The integrated hydraulic sequence valves allow the gripping mechanism to open when the blade opens fully and means the gripping mechanism closes first before the blade starts to close. An optional meal bucket, with approximately 400kg capacity, is

available for the I-73 bale shear. This auto locks in place using a securing pin attached to the gripper hydraulic mechanism. It allows the operator to feed silage, straw, hay and meal without interchanging implements. The Tanco I-60 Cleanafeed is a well-proven machine for cleaning and feeding root crops and is available in both three-point linkage and loader

versions. Drive to the rotor/chopper is hydraulic with built-in relief if any stones in the crop get caught in the rotor or chopper. A built-in dribble bar allows connection to a water source for washing dirty crops before chopping and feeding. Capacity of the machine is 500kg. A hydraulic top link is standard on linkage-mounted versions. ■

Five new first-choice varieties have been added to the British Society of Plant Breeder’s 2020 forage maize Descriptive Lists (DL) for favourable sites. The varieties Smoothi CS and Abrisse from Caussade Semences, Prospect from Limagrain, LiRoyal from DSV and KWS Calvini from KWS are all new entrants onto the list for favourable sites. The less favourable DL, aimed at marginal growing conditions, sees

the highest metabolisable energy (ME) and highest starch on the list at 11.98MJ/kg dry matter (DM) and 34.6% respectively. Smoothi CS is the latest maturing at 29%, achieving top of the list with an excellent dry matter yield of 19.3t DM/ha and good cell wall digestibility at 57.8%.” LiRoyal is a good all-rounder with excellent yields (18.5 t DM/ha) for its maturity (33.3%), an ME at harvest of 11.72MJ/kg DM and a very good standing power. KWS Calvini scores top of the list for standing power, a character of increased interest after 2018 saw more lodging than growers had experienced for over 20 years. Abrisse is a strong all-rounder, providing good ME and starch at 30.9% dry matter. “Using the Descriptive Lists to identify high ME varieties that grow well in your conditions can have a significant impact on voluntary feed intake and improved feed conversion, increasing milk and meat yield from forage,” says Ms Sweetman. “Higher cell wall digestibility can help support butterfat levels in dairy cows, whereas higher starch can reduce requirements for concentrate feeds, a more

cost-effective option for many beef producers.” The increased diversity in maturity is followed through with the six new contenders to the less favourable DL; KWS Calvini, Prospect, LiRoyal, RGT Stewaxx, DSP 46132 and Cardif. Growers looking for highly digestible, good quality silage in more challenging growing conditions should select for varieties with good early vigour as a variety’s ability to demonstrate vigorous early growth in shorter growing seasons is particularly important. The new varieties are good all-rounders with yield potentials all exceeding 18t DM/ha, combined with good starch and ME yields. ■

Grain Handling, Drying & Storage

Power on the land Grain handling, drying and storage equipment is the topic for this month's Power on the Land, brought to you by Mike Williams.

The mobile seed processor operated by Evans & Pearce provides full colour grain sorting.

A new addition to the grain services offered by Dorset based Evans & Pearce is a mobile optical grain processing unit that operates in full colour. It provides an on-farm sorting service that started this summer with functions that include discarding impurities such as weed seeds, reducing the screenings in barley, removing one cereal species from another or extracting discoloured grains from a crop destined for the food chain. Additional benefits can include improved hectolitre weights and Hagberg scores, and as well as cereals the service can also operate in other crops including oilseed rape and beans. Mobile sorting services are already available with monocolour equipment, explained Evans and Pearce managing director, Rob White, but he believes his company is the first to offer a full colour sorting facility in the UK. Work rates with grain are up to 50tph for standard pre-cleaning, reducing to about 20tph maximum for full colour processing. The service operates nationally, and Mr White said cost

savings could be achieved for longer distances if several farmers in the same area co-ordinate their requirements.

Moisture meters Britain’s top selling moisture meter for grain is said to be the Protimeter Grainmaster distributed by Martin Lishman, and the latest i-2S version features an improved keypad design plus a backlit display for easy reading. USB connectivity and Bluetooth

enabling are included, temperature compensation is automatic and the 15 pre-programmed calibrations cover the principle grain crops plus beans, peas, linseed, sunflower and oilseed rape. The i-2S Grainmaster is supplied in a case with a spare battery plus a spare grinder blade and feeder ring. There is also a voucher covering the first year’s service charge. Barn Owl Wireless monitoring and control equipment for stored crops is made by Martin Lishman, and its Automatic Crop Monitoring can achieve savings of 40 per cent or more in energy costs for temperature control and drying. Automatic monitoring is available for flat floor stores, silos and bins, and benefits include remote temperature checking, cooling and drying fans that are continuously monitored for operating efficiency, and data capture that meets quality assurance requirements.

Caterpillar also offers 8 skid-steer loader models with outputs in the 66–106hp range and there are 11 TL series telescopic loaders with load capacities from 2.5–5.5t and with maximum lift heights from upwards of 6.9m. There is also a large choice of Caterpillar attachments to work with the loaders, and these include buckets for grain, bale handling attachments, rotary brushes and both rotary and flail type grass and scrub cutters.

Grain silos Perry of Oakley has a history dating back to 1947 when Tom Perry, a Hampshire farmer’s son, used his car as a mobile workshop to provide a machinery repair service for local farms. Grain handling equipment production began in 1949 with a belt and bucket conveyor, and his first continuous flow grain drier followed in 1955. The success story included expansion to its current location in Devon where it makes one of the biggest ranges of grain handling, storage and drying equipment. The newest addition to the range is an additional series of grain silos with capacities to suit both farm and industrial scale storage requirements.

The Perry SiloMaster range is available in flat-bottomed or hopper-bottomed versions with up to 32m diameter providing storage capacity for 20,000t. They are made of high grade S459 steel galvanised to the Z600 quality standard, and an unusual feature is the roof design made as a single piece to simplify erection for silos up to 16m diameter. The family run F W T Burrows company is a steel framed buildings specialist with the emphasis on bespoke buildings, and customers can choose either a supply only service or a complete supply and build operation. Farm buildings are a major part of the business, including grain stores, Dutch barns, machinery sheds, workshop and livestock buildings, and as well as supplying complete buildings the service also includes extensions to existing buildings. Repairs and maintenance work on steel framed buildings are also available from Burrows. This can include cosmetic repairs to the steel as well as major structural rebuilding, and over-cladding can be added to existing buildings or the original cladding can be stripped off and replaced by new. Another of the specialist services is the removal and

Grain Handling, Drying & Storage

Spanish expertise benefits new silo range Materials handling and drying equipment specialist Perry of Oakley has revealed a new range of flat bottom and hopper bottom silos. The range is engineered in conjunction with SiloMaster, a newly formed company with a team of engineers with more than 50 years experience in the design and manufacture of silos and bulk storage solutions. The silos are designed using high grade S450 steel protected by galvanising to Z600 standard, giving superior strength to weight characteristics and long service life. One particular feature is the new single piece roof design used on silos up to 16m diameter which Perry says simplifies installation and enhances performance. Supporting the technical knowhow of the new team is one of Spain’s leading industrial manufacturing groups. The new range is being manufactured in a plant which operates to the highest quality and compliance standards insisted on by the automotive, oil and gas and rail industries amongst others. “We strive for the highest A5 Corporate LSCPE Openfield.qxp_Layout 1 quality in all aspects,” says Perry of

The new collaboration between Perry of Oakley and Silomaster has resulted in a new range of flat bottom and hopper bottom silos.

Oakley Managing Director David Perry. “This starts with assessment of a customer’s needs and carries through to designing a scheme, manufacturing the silos, packing, shipping and final installation along with after sales support.” Available exclusively from Perry of Oakley in the UK and Ireland, the new Perry SiloMaster range will begin production in September this year for immediate delivery thereafter. Antonio Benitez, SiloMaster head of global sales said: “We are very excited about developing markets together and being able to offer a full range of handling, drying and storage solutions that are available from Perrys and SiloMaster.” The newly designed range includes metric silos up to 32m diameter with a capacity of approximately 20,000t, 45 degree hopper bottom silos up to 13m diameter containing almost 3,000t and 60 degree hopper bottom 04/12/2018 10:09 Page 1 silos up to 11m diameter holding

1,900t. The SiloMaster range can be specified to either Eurocode or ANSI standards dependant on market needs and can be made in a wide range of diameters, both metric and imperial, therefore allowing an existing base to be reused in the event of replacing an end of life silo.

In addition to the silo range, a full complement of associated equipment will be available including aeration systems, temperature control systems (portable or with computers), unloading equipment, walkways and catwalks, as well as towers and structures. ■

Grain Handling, Drying & Storage

Norfolk farms boost capacity with ‘largest stirring drying silos in UK’ Suffolk-based post-harvest equipment specialist Allfarm Installations has been responsible for supplying two Norfolk farming businesses with what are believed to be the largest stirring drying silos currently in the UK. The Sukup Europe 5408 silos have a drying and storage capacity of 1,355t each. One project at Bithia, Saham Grove Farm, Shipdham is an extension to an existing system with two 1,000t Sukup Europe stirrer silos erected in 2012, which are filled through a drive over tip-and-go intake and 120t/hr conveyor system. Each silo has its own independent 100t/hr vertical discharge system for outloading directly into lorry trailers. The second project at Tharros, Park Farm, Wormegay is currently a single silo and this is filled with a PTO-driven Westfield MKX auger with an output capacity of 125t/hr in wheat and this silo also has its own independent 100 t/hr vertical discharge system. Sukup Europe says that its stirring silos are effective at drying and conditioning large quantities of grain for safe long term, vermin free storage.

Grain Handling, Drying & Storage

Evolution of a family farming business Originally a mixed farm, LF Pearce & Son now specialises in arable production with four parts to the business – arable contracting, groundworks, haulage and grain services including storage. “In 2007 we took the plunge and invested heavily in a state-of-the-art grain processing and storage facility,” said a spokesman. “Crops can be handled at up to 100t/hr and we have storage for over 10,000t of crops. All bays have under floor ventilation and conditioning, and we have a system where we can monitor the temperature of the grain 24/7. “We are TASCC assured and can offer a range of services from cleaning of stressed or contaminated crops, drying with a continuous flow dryer at 5 per cent moisture removal at 50t/hr.

Also cleaning and dressing with the Westrupp fine cleaner and treatment of bug infested grain.” The company’s latest investment has been the Satake colour sorter. This has made it possible to remove vomitoxin, fusarium, ergot and discoloured or damaged grain. The sorter also has the ability to ensure admixture removal, species separation, plus bushel weight and Hagberg improvement. This can enhance the crop value as well as avoiding costly crop penalties and increases premiums paid to growers. LF Pearce has a skilled groundwork team that can erect grain stores and carry out all aspects of groundwork and concreting. ■

The systems help optimise storage and assist ventilation. The Dry Pit intake system can be built to accept anything from 10-40t

loads so that the driver and trailer can get back quickly to the combine. Belt conveyors are now a popular method of filling stores as they are smooth and quiet in operation, take less power to drive and the tripper carriage unloads evenly down the entire length of the conveyor. As an optional addition to the main central conveyor Danagri can also add a side conveyor to ensure the store is filled to capacity. ■

The production facilities have been expanded too with the company’s construction yard in Cheshire recently benefitting from a new fabrication workshop. The team has been working hard to design and fabricate the new steel frame building, which was recently erected by one of the company’s valued construction teams. Due to the company expansion, Graham Heath Construction says it is now able to deliver a steel frame building to customers in just six to eight weeks from the date of order confirmation. “Whether you’re in need of a grain store, livestock shed, straw barn, dairy housing or even your own workshop, Graham Heath Construction can provide a bespoke quote, free of charge,” said a spokesperson.

Plug&Cool Airspear fans are effective and easy to use, says Gibbons Agricultural.

Say goodbye to grain hotspots With decades of experience working with farmers, Gibbons Agricultural believes it has a good understanding of what products they need at harvest time. Once grain is in the store, farmers often use portable temperature control equipment, such as grain spears, to eliminate hotspots as they appear. “One of the problems typically faced with traditional grain spears, is that they are difficult to insert and remove from the grain pile – so difficult, in fact, that the metal sometimes even becomes warped in the process!” explained a spokesperson from Gibbons. “Plus, once users have gone to the trouble of inserting the spear, the fans on top

often provide limited cooling power or are unreliable or inefficient.” Gibbons developed its Plug&Cool Airspear to offer customers a more reliable alternative. It features extra-long, adjustable handles with non-slip grips which make it easy to insert and remove. The company also produces the Airspear MAX for the urgent cooling of hotspots in stores. It is similar to those seen across Europe and uses a 1.1kW grain fan that would normally sit on top of a pedestal, so users get the highest possible cooling power. Gibbons Airspear fans are energy efficient and all models come with a five-year manufacturer’s warranty. ■

Grain Handling, Drying & Storage

New app for moisture management The Protimeter Grainmaster moisture meter has been upgraded with a whole host of new features, including a new store moisture management app developed by Martin Lishman. The latest model, the Protimeter Grainmaster i2-S, includes a new keypad design, multi-lingual backlit display and the ability to download moisture and temperature readings instantly using the app. Readings taken using the meter or any of the optional moisture or temperature probes for grain or straw can be sent instantly via Bluetooth to a smartphone. This speeds up the recording process and makes it easier to provide evidence for crop assurance schemes. In an innovative new development, the app also allows the user to manage multiple crop stores and track the condition of grain coming into the store from different fields or locations. By returning to the same sample point in a store using on-screen store maps, it is easier to monitor changes to crop moisture or temperature and make appropriate management decisions. Colour coded symbols highlight areas of concern such as hot spots or areas that still require further drying. The measurements can be viewed via the app or exported in either graph or table form. The Protimeter Grainmaster has a proven track record for providing consistent, accurate and reliable grain moisture

readings. The Grainmaster i2-S includes 15 pre-programmed crop calibrations, 30 further reference calibrations, a strong carry-case with built-in operating instructions and optional moisture and temperature probes for grain and straw. The new app is ready to use with all new meters by downloading from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store. ■

Grain Handling, Drying & Storage 25 years of grain dryers

A 52tph Svegma dryer with turboclean dust extraction fans from BDC Systems.

In its 25th anniversary year, Wiltshirebased BDC Systems has supplied dryers from Dorset in the south of England right up to Fife in Scotland. Svegma continuous flow grain dryers and Skandia handling equipment have been at the centre of most of those projects. One notable installation is that of a 52tph Svegma continuous flow grain dryer with vertical turboclean dust extraction fans and touch screen control panel. All the elevating and conveying equipment is 80tph from the Skandia H line range of heavy duty kit. A complete dust extraction system was designed and supplied by BDC Systems which

had a JKF filter at the centre of the plant. All of the elevating, conveying, cleaning and drying machinery is controlled from a 5m long PLC control panel incorporating 2x22in plc screens with remote access and viewing. This installation was carried out by local company Edwards Engineering from Perth. Svegma dryers are available in a variety of sizes from 5tph to over 100tph. They are of fully galvanised construction and suitable for both indoor and outdoor applications. Available with electric pulse roller or shutter discharge units, two or three stage burners, digital or touch screen

control panels, there is a model to suit all applications, says BDC. New for 2019 is BDC’s own MMS System which allows real time monitoring of the moisture content of grain on the inlet and outlet elevators of the dryer. Skandia handling equipment is available exclusively in the UK from BDC Systems. Skandia offers 3 ranges of equipment from general farm use 3060tph right through to commercial use equipment at 600tph. Belt and bucket elevators, chain and flight conveyors, belt conveyors, silo sweep conveyors and dust and chaff extractors are all available, generally only on a four to five week delivery period. ■

Reliable results for 2019 harvest Following the success of the benchtop DICKEYjohn GAC 2500 and the Mini GAC 2500 in previous years, the results for this year’s harvest have been good. Despite a steady start to the 2019 harvest, heavy rain and high temperatures have meant that getting an accurate moisture reading has been more difficult but even more important. Using the latest 149MHz grain analysis technology and UK specific

calibrations, the GAC 2500 moisture meters deliver accurate, reliable results across a range of moistures and temperatures. In particular, the differences in barley varieties, growing conditions and temperatures can make determining an accurate moisture reading very difficult. But due to the technology on the GAC 2500’s and the robust nature of the specific calibrations, Farm-Tec says it has managed to maintain consistent




accuracy across the whole of the UK. As harvest comes towards its close, Farm-Tec will now collect even more crop samples to further maintain, refine and improve its calibrations. The GAC 2500 family of moisture meters are sold and supported by Farm-Tec which develops the UK specific calibration on a wide range of commodities (including wheat, barley, oats, rapeseed, peas and beans) and monitors the calibrations throughout

Grain Handling, Drying & Storage

A closer look at the mobile optical grain sorter Crop contamination can cause nuisance for growers, particularly when it prevents them achieving the crop’s full market value. Offering a mobile grain handling service for processing contaminated crops has been a long-term project for Evans & Pearce managing director Rob White. “We had wanted to build a machine like this for 10 years,” says Rob. His accountants suggested applying for a Leader grant. “Securing the expressions of interest necessary for the grant convinced us the project had merit.” The application was submitted and awarded. With funding in place, the team set about designing and building the machine. Monochromatic (black and white) colour sorters have been used in grain processing for years but full colour spectrum sorters are less common, a mobile version of such a machine was not, to Evans and Pearce’s knowledge, available in the UK. The build began in earnest in October 2018. It was completed by mid-June 2019 and after a week of commissioning - cleaning wheat for local farmers and Einkorn for a mill in Gloucestershire - the unit was

ready for work. The full colour sorter has removed poppy seed pods from organic milling wheat, immature green wheat from barley destined for seed and oats from seed wheat, with work rates at 10-18t/hour. “With each positive result we increase our confidence in the machine’s capability. It feels like we are undertaking a lot of auditions at the moment,” says operator Martyn Franks. “Once the colour sorter is set67699

up, the results and customer reaction are great to see.” “The chance to help growers sort an otherwise undervalued or rejected crop at a competitive price is opening up new conversations,” says Rob. “It is really positive to see this new venture proving so useful at an early stage. Having a mobile grain processor on the road all year round now gives growers more options. Traditionally work was carried out by mobile seed

processing units out of season where outputs could be slow and availability not always to the convenience of the customer. We are already fulfilling contracts we would normally have rejected due to workload or inappropriate grading kit. “On completion we have produced a video included on the seed processing section of our website to explain the new grain processor,” he adds. ■

Open days for grain dryer and storage specialist

McArthur has completed two new grain stores in the East Midlands with 3,000 and 6,000t capacity.

Weather unpredictability has caused ‘universal frustration’ for farmers, according to McArthur Agriculture. The company’s regional sales manager Tom Barker said that arable farmers have faced challenges and frustrations across Britain.

“Resolving them has kept us very busy. We’ve relied heavily on the flexibility of mobile batch grain dryers from the Mecmar range, which has been at the core of our business for many years now.” Alongside the supply of mobile dryers McArthur has developed its expertise in creating turnkey grain storage and processing systems, several of which have been completed this year. “If it’s not done correctly, opting for a large-scale grain handling and drying setup can go expensively wrong,” said Tom. “Our in-house expertise is available to farmers, from concept to completion, to make sure that it doesn’t. This summer we were principal contractor overseeing all aspects of design, civils, construction, mechanical and electrical installation of two new grain stores in the east Midlands; one with a 3,000t capacity, the other with 6,000t. They were complete with crop cooling and conditioning systems, and in both we integrated new grain handling equipment with existing continuous

flow drying plants.” McArthur Agriculture offers an extensive range of mobile grain dryers, manufactured by Mecmar, continuous flow grain dryers manufactured by two of Europe’s leading manufacturers as well as specialist grain cleaning and sorting equipment from JK Machinery. All the products will be showcased at the company’s open days, taking place between 8am

and 5pm on November 5-7th at its head office at Bellwin Drive Industrial Estate, Flixborough, Scunthorpe, DN15 8SN. “Visitors to our site will be able to see the extensive range of grain drying, storage and processing products, and talk about them with our team. We can discuss how this equipment is integrated into existing systems or how new projects are started from scratch.” ■

Grain transfer system re-vamped The 100tph Perry bulk outloading conveyor included in a recent project by Bennett & Co.

In its 22nd harvest season Bennett & Co has this year undertaken a major revamp of a large silo for a loyal customer. Part of the project was to relook at the loading of lorries and the need to reach over the intake pit and a wet grain holding area alongside. The previous lorry loading spout meant lorries standing right in the middle of a large wet grain holding area had become a problem when loading out barley with wheat coming in. Using the frames that supported the previous loading spout and an

additional support frame, a Perry conveyor with two loading spouts was installed. The conveyor is 11m above the intake pit allowing lorries to tip too. Perry designed special span bracing to enable the conveyor to span the supports and to maintain the clearance height. Farmers planning a project, whether for grain, potatoes or vegetables are invited to visit Bennett & Co’s website to see more details of recent projects and to sign up to the company’s quarterly email newsletter if interested. ■

Precision Farming

New concepts to reality John Deere’s new Intelligent Solutions Group (ISG) facility is in central Iowa and opened in April this year. The building houses an 830-strong specialist team tasked with problem solving with technology, collaboration, testing and development for precision products and services.

farmers to be the most profitable and sustainable on the planet.” A significant boost to John Deere’s precision farming aspirations was the purchase of the Blue River Technology business in 2017, which was already developing a smart spraying system which could distinguish individual crop plants from weeds in the field. “By targeting only the weed we can reduce herbicide use by up to 80 per cent, and that’s something that benefits everyone.”

Idea sharing

Farmers Guide was one of a small number of publications from around the world to attend a tour of John Deere’s new Intelligent Solutions Group (ISG) headquarters, Iowa, USA which provided a rare insight into where the future of agriculture is being shaped and decided. David Williams reports. The new building at Urbandale, Iowa represents nearly $33M investment by the machinery giant, and replaces the previous precision farming headquarters a few miles away consisting of three separate rented buildings which, although neighbours, meant a walk of up to half a mile for meetings - a challenge in the middle of winter in Iowa. Farmers Guide was one of a very small number of agricultural media titles from around the world invited to the first press visit to the new ISG centre in late August. The 134,000ft2 purpose-designed building opened in April this year and is home to a team of approximately 830 precision farming specialists whose job it is to dream up and develop agricultural hardware and software, then prepare it for market and finally to provide back-up to dealers and their customers world-wide.

Make every seed count John Deere senior vice-president ISG John Stone described the team’s task.

“We have to make machines smarter, more precise and easier to use. We have to make every seed count, we have to make every drop of crop protection chemical count, and we have to get every kernel and grain off the field at harvest.” Challenges facing the industry, he added, include urbanisation and a lack of experienced farm machinery operators so technology has to be developed which can help even unskilled operators do a skilled job. Shorter planting windows mean tasks have to be carried out faster, but with even more precision than in the past to optimise establishment and yields, he added. “First AutoTrac revolutionised field work, allowing operators to concentrate on the operation while GPS guidance looked after the steering,” explained John. “We started off looking at operations at field level, then realised sub-field level was needed, we later looked at individual rows and now we are looking at every plant. Our aim is to allow our

The ISG building is designed to maximise interaction between employees, and all offices are open plan. One entrance, with electronic internal gates and a diligent security guard helps protect sensitive development work from unauthorised visitors, but means all staff enter and exit through one main access point into a large hall designed to host presentations and where the walls are decorated with farming-related art. A restaurant and refreshment area is at one end and upstairs a large games room provides casual space for relaxation and project discussions. “The layout is very successful,” commented John Deere manager marketing services ISG Jolene Keim. “It’s designed to generate interaction between individuals and sections and just going to fetch a cup of coffee often results in spontaneous

meetings. It’s a great atmosphere and people enjoy working here.” Back-up for users of John Deere precision farming products is provided by a dedicated team at the site; between them fluent in 12 languages and available for advice 24 hours per day, 362 days per year. A large display board lists the number of calls received that day as well as current expected waiting times for service users. Bearing in mind that many staff might not be from farming backgrounds, John Deere has a small area in front of the new building drilled with a selection of crops as a reminder to the team of its customers’ objectives. By the main entrance is a John Deere leaping deer statue, one of only 14 remaining worldwide out of a number commissioned by Charles Deere, the son of company founder John Deere. Also reminding employees and visitors of the brand’s history is an original 1874 plough displayed in the new building’s entrance lobby. continued over...

One of the original leaping deer statues guards the entrance.

Precision design for drainage schemes Growers are paying more attention to detail and using it to target drainage investment in the worst affected parts of their fields. Norfolk-based drainage specialist William Morfoot is experiencing increased demand for its services providing drainage schemes for farm businesses including design work and installation. Contracts manager Will Mitchell said: “Many growers are approaching us to undertake drainage work armed with multiple maps all providing different information. These can be simple maps detailing the positions of existing drainage systems or perhaps more specialist maps sourced from satellite or combine data – showing yield and crop performance

information. “This information is then all integrated with detailed topographical maps of the fields that we survey to produce a bespoke and targeted scheme design.” The scheme designs provide a transparent and considered drainage solution for the affected areas being worked on. The detailed and comprehensive design service is a different way of working to the way drainage schemes were designed years ago, Mr Mitchell added. “The combination of an experienced design team and the latest in GPS and computer technology means that we are readily able to quickly pull together a wide

Potato growers benefit from field-level weather data Potato growers can improve decision support and cut around £100/ha from their input costs by making use of field-level weather metrics, according to a study carried out by digital farming start-up Sencrop. The company’s smart weather stations, which are designed to be installed on a user’s farm, collect measurements for rainfall, wind speed and humidity and send them to the cloud, where users access the data – and can set alerts to warn them of temperature/humidity combinations – through their smartphone. The study, carried out in France, involved 1,400 growers across 80,000ha. Data from the weather stations was fed into Mileos, an agronomic model focused on preventing late blight. “Users reported a typical three-spray reduction where they’d been using the Sencrop/Mileos combination to support their decision making,” said Fred South, Sencrop’s business manager. “For them, that translated into a €160/ha [£140/ha] saving. “We’re now evaluating Mileos in the UK, working with customers of

Agri-Tech Services in Yorkshire and Lincolnshire, to validate those results under British conditions.” However, British farmers have responded enthusiastically to the weather stations following their launch at the end of last year, he said. More than 300 Sencrop units have been installed on farms across the UK, adding to the 8,000 in operation across Europe. Phil Kingsmill, of Cambridgeshire-based Spearhead International, bought one for his operations after seeing the unit in action at Lamma. “It’s essential that we can record rainfall accurately, as well as temperature and humidity,” he said. With operations focused exclusively on potatoes, he needs to grow across disparate parcels of rented land in order to achieve the necessary rotation. “I really like the Sencrop unit, because the app is so good. I can find out with just a few swipes and pushes what happened an hour ago, how the weather’s been over the past 24 hours and the trend for the past seven days. “Having easy access to this history and data has really helped with

Field-level weather metrics made available through Sencrop can bring big savings for growers.

backing up our agronomic decisions,” he added. “There’s been a number of instances where we’ve looked at the app before spraying, to check on temperatures or to ensure wind speeds are suitable. “We’ve a number of weather stations dotted around, both automatic and manual, but of all of them it’s the Sencrop app I rate the best. What’s more, the pricing structure is fair – the affordability is very justifiable.” Multiple installations are encouraged by Sencrop – not just on the same farm, but with neighbouring units as well. “Users can choose to open up their data streams – our 8,000 stations connect more than 9,000 farmers. This ability to share, collate and analyse metrics from multiple stations, across thousands of different locations presents huge value to the industry,” said Fred. “Not only does it allow individual farmers to become aware of shortterm trends – localised rainfall, frost anomalies, and so on – in real-time,

but the collective pool of weather data will also allow us to work with researchers, agronomists, contractors and insurers to data-crunch and spot longer-term trends. “Ultimately, this should help to provide products and services better tailored to growers’ needs and habits,” he added. Three Sencrop models are available to UK growers, with prices starting at £380 plus £150 for a year’s subscription to the app and customer services. ■

High-speed and higher accuracy fertiliser spreading Fertiliser spreader technology by Kverneland continues to evolve with the addition of the TLX Geospread model to the Exacta series. With high output, high speeds and high flow rates as the goal, TLX Geospread benefits from a larger CentreFlow distribution system, which sees the maximum flow rates boosted from 320kg/min up to 540kg/min. Typically a flow rate of 540kg/min can be achieved at a forward speed of 16kph while spreading at a 40m working width. A narrower spread width affords access to even higher forward speeds, boosting output and productivity. CentreFlow manages the way

Kverneland’s Multirate software uses tighter grid sampling and higher resolution maps, to provide up to eight sections of variable rate capability across the full working width.

fertiliser is distributed to the eight spreading vanes, accelerating material up to disc speeds through the dosing cup, preserving material quality. This technique improves upon the Exacta’s already successful spreading patterns, and affords a higher degree of accuracy with the TLX model, even when spreading at high application rates and at high forward speeds says Kverneland. Equipped with Geospread, the TLX also provides automatic section control in one metre sections. But

advances in software have now enabled Geospread to achieve variable rate fertiliser applications on both sides of the machine. Known as Multirate, this process uses tighter grid sampling and higher resolution maps, to provide

up to eight sections of variable rate capability across the full working width. This brings precision application to levels previously thought unachievable with a spinning disc spreader, adds Kverneland. ■

Are you making the most of your farm’s potential? From essential crop compliance, traceability and reporting through to precision farming and more, Farmplan’s Gatekeeper software can manage all cropping activities in one place. The software focuses on three key points – full visibility of data from multiple sources, full and

clear analysis of production costs, and integration with the machines, agronomy advice and data sources already used. This can contribute to gaining a better understanding of crop productivity, providing users with the opportunity to maximise the value

of their farm data and make wellinformed decisions. Damien Burnell, an arable farm manager, said: “We trialled variable rate drilling on one historically low yielding field. It was scanned and we created variable rate maps within Gatekeeper. The result was that

average yields rose by 1t/ha.” Harnage Estates manager Simon Scott finds it invaluable: “Gatekeeper is essential for our compliance and traceability requirements. It is selfdeveloping – the more you use the software the more you get out of it. We wouldn’t be without it.” ■

Harvest is over... now what? The grain store is full, the combine is clean and back in the shed but what are you going to do with your yield data?

Direct Drilling

No-till farming ‘boosts soil health and cuts costs’ No-till farming has seen a steady increase over recent years in the UK, despite historically slower rates of adoption compared to other parts of the world. More and more farmers are aware of this necessity to increase food production globally, and the industry is experiencing a shift towards no-till as a means to achieve better soil health and sustainable production all while cutting costs and saving time. “The shift has been massive,” says Weaving Machinery sales director Simon Weaving. “Five years ago, farming was all about completely mixing the soil profile. Today, it’s more about lifting the soil profile, rather than mixing. Farmers are beginning to understand the very real benefits they can see when incorporating a no-till system.” The UN recently stated that the world’s soil reserves have only an estimated 60 harvests left before complete degradation, with around a third of the world’s soil already at that point. Michael Gove, the former environment secretary, also warned that the UK is only a few decades away from “the fundamental eradication of soil fertility”. The British government has also signalled possible incentives for farmers who promote better soil health following Brexit, though these are not set in stone. While the importance of soil health is widely understood, rate of adoption has been slow. Part of this is the UK’s strong sense of tradition in farming, but a significant barrier to entry has

Ben Hall of Squire Farming is an advocate of no-till farming using Weaving machinery.

been the cost. With many farms under increasing financial pressure, few are willing to invest and risk trialling a new method of farming, even if the benefits are clear. For Weaving’s part, accessibility and affordability has always been one of its leading mission statements: “I completely understand that farmers may be wary of leaping straight into direct drilling or low disturbance farming,” says Simon. “Our drills are designed to work on conventional systems as well, for complete flexibility. Ultimately, no-till is the direction the industry is heading, and it’s a change that will directly benefit both this country’s soil health and, importantly, the financial security of UK farmers.” No-till requires more planning but advocates are quick to highlight the benefits they have seen on farm. These include a cut in costs for machinery, labour, fertiliser, and chemicals. In turn, this leads to a marked increase in insects, birds and wildlife, as well as fewer floods and more resilient crops during droughts. At face value, the cost savings might prove the biggest incentive for interested farmers. Savings include less money spent on diesel, parts that wear far slower, less manpower required in the field, and less horsepower (and therefore fuel consumption) during the crop cycle. These costs may be relatively small individually, but quickly add up.

In the long-term, no-till also increases worm numbers and boosts organic matter. Unlike conventional systems, no-till keeps everything underneath the surface, giving it a chance to build up. This also leads to another benefit for many farmers: a solid defence against black-grass. Black-grass seeds can lie dormant for years before activation, which can then be caused by cultivating and mixing the soil profile. While by no means an all-purpose solution, no-till means the seed hits the floor and stays there – making spraying much more cost-efficient, effective, and longlasting. “We made this decision because we just had to tackle black-grass,” says one Weaving customer who adopted a notill system. “This system was affordable and a viable route to go down. No-till has lots to recommend it in terms of

preserving soil health, but to be honest ours was largely a practical decision. This is the right thing to do for our farm.” Simon advises taking stock of your current situation: “First, look at your soil health,” he says. “If the soil is in poor health, you might not want to jump straight into direct drilling. You can use a machine like our LD top spoiler to slice into and lift up the soil. This gets air underneath before putting it back down with minimal disturbance before drilling.” “All farmers should be seriously looking at no-till as an option for their farm,” he adds. “Year on year, we’re seeing more farms trial whether no-till can work for them. We’ve worked to deliver machinery that has the power and functionality for farms of all sizes and systems, to improve soil health – all while keeping yields strong.” ■

Direct Drilling

Direct strip seeding enables Eric to keep doing the job he loves

The Claydon T6c will sow directly into stubble, in min-till situations or on ploughed/ cultivated land, across the widest range of soils, conditions and crops.

Octogenarian arable farmer Eric Lewis continues to work single-handedly, completing almost all the work on his farm at Knights Green, near Dymock. A heart attack seven years ago made Eric reflect on life and slowed him down a little, but giving up was never an option. Instead he looked for alternatives that would allow him to keep doing the job he has always loved. Now approaching his 81st birthday, Eric has no plans to call it a day and continues to invest in the future. Just before harvest he took delivery of a new Claydon T6c OptiTill drill which, he says, is the key to his ability to keep farming. “This is my life and I simply wouldn’t want to do anything else,” says Eric. “But if it wasn’t for the Claydon system I would have had to give up, because it minimises the time and physical work involved.” Eric moved from nearby Colwall Park Farm to Hill Farm, Knights Hill in 1980, converting what was a mixed enterprise into an all-arable unit five years later so that he could do most of the work himself. Crops were established using a plough followed by a power harrow/drill combination, still the traditional method in the area. That was hard work, took a lot of time, consumed a lot of fuel and panned the soil, stunting crop development and yields. In 2000, Eric changed to a min-till system based around an implement which incorporated tines, discs and a packer roller, behind his 230hp Massey-Ferguson. Wanting more output, he up-sized to a 370hp MF 8690 and 5m version of the same implement, but it was not the right Soil structure and condition have improved dramatically since changing to the Claydon System.

solution. Working very long hours, Eric found that it increased the amount of black-grass, while having to work land down ahead of the drill created a huge weather risk. In 2009 Agrii's Stephen Earl, his agronomist for 32 years, suggested the Claydon OptiTill system of direct strip seeding, but it wasn’t until Eric left Gloucester Hospital in 2015 having been fitted with a pacemaker that he considered it more closely. “I knew I would have to change. I could no longer do what I’d been able to and at 75 didn’t want to spend all my time in the fields,” says Eric. After attending the 2016 Claydon open day, Eric had a 4m Hybrid drill on demonstration, and visited a local owner and then ordered a 6m mounted model. His 370hp MasseyFerguson was more powerful than was needed, but the tractor was paid for, so Eric decided to keep it. The 6m hybrid quickly proved itself at Hill Farm, which produces 70ha of winter wheat, 28 of oilseed

rape and 20 of linseed, together with organic apples for Westons Cider at Much Marcle in neighbouring Herefordshire. “It didn’t take long to realise that I should have changed to the Claydon years ago,” says Eric. “The leading tine is the key to the drill’s performance because it creates an ideal environment for the seed and fissures the soil between the strip seeded bands, so roots develop without restriction,” he adds. The system also helped Eric keep on top of the farm’s black-grass, says

Stephen Earl of Agrii. “I have not changed how I approach things from an agronomic viewpoint because of the Claydon System and Eric’s results speak for themselves.” Having experienced the benefits of the hybrid, Eric purchased two other components of the Claydon system, a straw harrow and TerraStar, a simple, low cost, low disturbance shallow cultivator. “My 7.5m straw harrow is very fast, cheap to use and moves just enough soil to get the weeds and volunteers to germinate, but in dry weather some of the heavier ground needs a

bit more working and the TerraStar is just the right tool. “When you buy a Claydon drill you must take time to understand how it works and how to use it, then give it time to work, allowing air and water to get into the soil and the worm population to return to where it should be. “Cover crops have been grown here for three years and helped with that process, as well as bringing many other benefits.” Eric reports improvements to soil structure and condition since introducing the Claydon system. “Its high output allows me to wait for just the right conditions, rather than feeling that I must press on regardless just to get crops in the ground. I can easily drill 28ha in a day, although the Hybrid could do comfortably much more. Establishing crops now needs so little power that I sold one of my two fuel tanks because it was no longer needed.” After three seasons with his Claydon drill Eric took delivery of the latest OptiTill Hybrid T6c. Introduced

Save Fuel, Save Time

at the end of 2018, the new model combines the high output of a 6m seeding platform with the handling characteristics and manoeuvrability of the 4m Claydon T4. Incorporating a 3,500-litre hopper which can be used for seed only or divided 60:40 between seed and fertiliser for combination drilling, the T6c is over 20 per cent lighter and more compact than Claydon’s T6 model, which features a 5,500-litre hopper. The T6c will sow directly into stubble, in min-till situations or on ploughed/cultivated land, across the widest range of soils, conditions and crops. This enables one drill to handle any crop establishment situation, such as drilling cereals and catch crops at the same time, thereby minimising capital investment. “Wheat averages over 10.1t/ha, but I think this will increase with the T6c,” says Eric. “It will also allow starter fertiliser to be placed in the seeding zone when drilling oilseed rape, which will help the crop to establish more quickly and reduce overall fertiliser use. “The Claydon System is much more than just another way of establishing crops, it is ‘my system’ and I hope to be using it for many years to come.” ■

Conversion coulters make direct drilling affordable Minimal disruption is key to direct drilling, according to experienced wearing part manufacturer JJ Metcalfe & Son. “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 blackgrass establishment by leaving dormant seeds buried well below the surface, unable to germinate.” With the above in mind, JJ Metcalfe & Son designed its range of tungsten carbide tipped, low disturbance direct drill coulters. Designed to fit Seedhawk drills or innovatively convert Horsch CO/

Sprinter series, Simba freeflow and now the Amazone Cayena drills into direct drills, the 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. With the conversion coulters starting at £78 per unit, JJ Metcalfe says it is aiming to provide an affordable step into direct drilling and maintaining soil health, which should in turn increase crop yield. ■

Its tungsten carbide tipped low disturbance conversion coulters make direct drilling possible for more growers, says JJ Metcalfe & Son.

Direct Drilling

Canadian drilling system popular among UK farmers

Beans direct drilled with VOS in November - Lincolnshire Wolds.

Consistent seed spacing and depth.

Supporters of direct drilling have taken to social media to document their use of the Bourgault VOS system, originating from Canada and imported into the UK by Martin Lishman. The Versatile Opener System (VOS) range offers versatility with various options of holders and compatible tips available. Tips come in single or double shoot versions to deliver seed only or

seed plus fertiliser. Pulses such as beans can be delivered with the same tips or there are specific versions for this purpose. Farmers and agronomists in Canada began exploring the benefits of reduced tillage and direct drilling nearly 50 years ago. The reasons were simple – the need to reduce soil erosion, retain soil moisture, save on fuel costs and reduce the time taken.

H.R. Bourn & Sons' Andrew Harker shared his experience of the Bourgault VOS which he said had improved the performance of his Horsch drills: “Drilling late for blackgrass control, we are seeing less smearing of soil and much less soil disturbance. This is giving us less black-grass to control in the crop, and even more crop establishment with far better rooting plants.” James Porter of Porters Farms (Walpole) also gave the system the thumbs up: “The Bourgault VOS coulters have greatly enhanced the performance of our Horsch Sprinter drill. They are extremely versatile. We can use them on min-till land and when direct drilling. “We have since benefitted from even seed depth and less soil movement, which has greatly helped to reduce moisture loss and resulted in improved crop establishment.” The low disturbance and low draft generated by the tips contributes to low wear rates as well as reduced fuel costs, said Martin Lishman. This is


complemented by the high chromium content of the tips and the carbide on the wings which self-sharpens as it wears and provides increased penetration with no soil smearing. ■

Farm Safety & Security

Smart solutions to rural crime Levels of theft crime are known to increase when the nights start pulling in. Organised gangs target farms for machinery to use as tools in further crimes such as ripping out cash machines, and also steal to order with many items ending up abroad. Activists are also a major concern on game and livestock farms. In April this year members of the Animal Liberation Front (ALF) released 9,000 birds at Heath Hatcheries in Mildenhall. Farms are under threat as places of business and also family homes. Active Farm Solutions is keen to assist the farming community in reducing crime while providing peace of mind.

AQM can supply a host of measures to help farmers secure their assets.

When farmers are alerted to intruders on their land or machinery being stolen they can alert the police and AQM can track the machinery.

It believes that criminals may not see farms as easy targets if they realise that the farming community are a smart network, working together to prevent rural crime. “We are moving to a smart farm approach – from perimeter protection, to tracking quad bikes, monitoring animal data, and building humidity sensors,” explains the company’s head of sales and marketing James Doel. Active Farm Solutions offers the opportunity of a visit to discuss any security issues and to provide an action plan with various equipment options. A Smart Hub is installed with all sensors talking to it within a range of around 5km. Products are mostly batterypowered with a life range of between three and five years providing a cost effective and portable tagging and monitoring solution. This is especially important for rural locations with no access to mains power. Amanda Cornwell from Agriculture Insurance Brokers works closely with AFS: “A Suffolk client of mine had a break in last week and I am suggesting that they speak with AFS to look at a system that monitors their perimeter. They have a metal security gate fitted but the thieves simply drove across the fields and through a hedge to get to his workshop.” Light beam sensors can be fitted across any areas where a physical barrier does not exist or in vulnerable areas on a farm such as around intensive livestock units where there is a threat from activist groups. Farmers can use the software provided to set specific parameters for each of their sensors. In the case of a light beam sensor across a field entrance, an alert could be set

 Security products from AQM are mostly battery powered so do not require a mains supply.  Light beam sensors can alert farmers to an intruder.

between 8pm and 7am when farm staff will not be using it. Farmers will receive alerts by text message to their phone and emails only if the beam is broken during those hours. Tags can be fitted to machinery and alerts sent to the farmer when the machinery goes outside of the area set. When alerted to the fact the machinery has moved or been stolen the farmer can contact the police and AFS will then monitor and track the machine with the aim of recovery. The tags use RF technology as opposed to GPS or GSM which can be blocked and also means assets can still be tracked up to 10 shipping containers deep if moved to a port or a cargo ship. Active Farm Solutions charges only £60 per year for the recovery service irrespective of the number of devices on a farm. Farmers can become part of the AFS network allowing their hubs

to communicate and pick up other farmers’ assets if they are stolen and moved close to their property, becoming part of a smart network of businesses across the country. Farms are targets for fuel thieves too and AFS has come up with the solution of a fuel tank monitor providing an alert when the fuel drops below a set level. Besides alerting the farmer to theft it would also alert to a leak and could be used as a fuel ordering management tool. James Doel adds that a security system can be set up on farm for an initial cost of £2,000–£3,000 with an annual fee of £180 per year for the service and software. ■

Farm Safety & Security

First line of defence against rural crime It’s a sad reality that rural crime has risen across the UK, costing nearly £50m last year. Most costly is theft, especially the theft of vehicles, quads, and livestock. With a traditional gate, it’s all too easy to gain access, and even a padlock only offers limited reassurance as they are easy to break. Electric gates are a step above, remaining locked in place to all except those working on the farm, says Weaving Machinery. “No easy forcing, no leaving wide open while thieves walk out with machinery or livestock. A strong robust electric gate is the first line of defence against rural crime on modern farms.” As well as fending off unwelcome visitors, electric gates are a crucial

part of strong biosecurity on farm, says the company. “Electric gates only open for authorised personnel – putting you in complete control over who and what is permitted on your farm.” The Weaving Machinery sliding gate features a brushless motor system, eliminating the clogs of debris and constant maintenance required with some electric gates that run on tracks. This type of gate can also be installed on all kinds of terrain, even slopes or uneven ground. “Gates are an overlooked but vital part of your farm security,” says Weaving. “Choose an option that keeps your farm safe, your operations running smoothly, and your financial position secure.” ■

Weaving Machinery’s electric sliding security gate does not require a ground track – making it ideal for busy farm entrances and uneven terrain.

Track your tractor Hundreds of tractors and farm machines are stolen from farms across the country and taken abroad. Thefts are often highly organised and investigators believe that gangs may have international criminal contacts and experience in countersurveillance techniques.  On average two vehicles a night are stolen from farms or dealerships, says Zest Tracking. Its plant and asset tracking device features a batterypowered tracking unit and supports

the tracking of a wide range of vehicles, assets and equipment. The unit offers simple selfinstallation and comes with a large capacity battery capable of a five to seven year life. The compact and robust design means it can be concealed out of sight and it comes supplied with an advanced casing to protect against water and dust. It is an ideal solution to protect mobile assets against the threat of theft, says the company. ■

Trials target higher yielding robot-ready orchards

Blaklader’s range of high-visibility, breathable tops improve staff safety and comfort.

Different systems for growing Gala Galaxy clones on different rootstocks are being trialled over 10 years at 2 sites.

Workwear for a better and safer job Industrial retailer Kiowa has been working in partnership with Blaklader Workwear for over 12 years in a wide range of industry sectors including farming. Blaklader is different to other clothing manufacturers as it views workwear as tools for performing a better and safer job and claims that high quality always pays off as its clothes can stand up to tough demands over and over again while meeting all the necessary safety directives and standards. Agriculture can be one of the riskiest working environments and so great efforts are being made to improve and highlight the risks involved. One quick and easy way everyone can make their farm a safer place to work is to ensure all

staff wear the correct hi-visibility clothing. This has until now usually meant having to wear poor quality fluorescent vests over work clothes resulting in lost, dirty and ill-fitting clothing, the company says. Blaklader has developed a range of hi-visibility tops as well as trousers and jackets in various colour combinations that have the same visibility standards as most florescent jackets; Class 1 and EN ISO 20471. The shirts marked UV ‘3338 / 3337’ also meet the requirements EN1356-2 (UPF 40+) with added sun protection. These are made from 100% polyester which has been treated with bamboo charcoal to create a breathable fabric that can be worn all day. ■

A trial examining ways to improve the planting design and canopy management of apple orchards and future-proof them for robotic harvesting systems opened its doors to growers this summer. The Hutchinsons Enhanced Light Interception Orchard System (HELIOS) was established last spring at two sites, in East Kent and on the Herefordshire/ Gloucestershire border, to examine how orchards can be cost-effectively re-designed and managed to capture more light, improve yields and allow new mechanical picking systems in the future. Several systems for growing Gala Galaxy clones on different rootstocks are being trialled over 10 years at both sites, with detailed yield and crop grading measurements being taken to help identify the most cost-effective options. The planting configurations are inspired by research in New Zealand that suggests current orchard systems do not intercept as much sunlight as they could, so fall short of their theoretical maximum yield. Perhaps the most adventurous system being trialled is the ‘photovoltaic configuration’ which features Gala Galaxy on M9 and the more vigorous M116 rootstock, angled on a 50-degree slope orientated east-west in a similar way to a groundmounted solar PV array. “Leaning a tree over at an angle like that does reduce vigour, but theoretically angled trees can capture approximately twice as much light as traditional planting in a northsouth orientation,” explained Hutchinsons agronomist Rob Saunders (right) , who manages the Kent trial hosted at Hoaden Court Farm near Canterbury.

One of the most promising systems so far at both HELIOS sites is the high density alternate leaning V spindle system using Gala Galaxy on M9 rootstock, planted at a tree spacing of 0.39m in the standard north-south orientation. Trees are pruned to create a planar canopy no more than 30cm deep to maximise light interception. “In terms of yield potential, it’s definitely one of the most exciting, but it’s also the most expensive to establish given the sheer number of trees and need for a robust trellis system,” said Nigel Kitney (right), who manages the western trial site near Newent. This planting density at a 3.5m row spacing gives around 7,326 trees/ha, compared with nearer 2,000 to 3,000 trees/ha on many other systems, he added. “It needs to deliver on yield to make up for these higher costs.” At the other extreme is a lowcost trial of Gala Galaxy on M116 rootstock championed by Nick Dunn of F.P. Matthews, and chosen for its reduced canker levels, and resistance to drought, phytophthora and woolly aphid. Trees are orientated north-south at a 1.5m spacing, on 3.5m rows, to give a density of 1,904/ha. Developing orchard designs that will be suitable for robotic mechanical harvesting systems is a key part of the trials. “If we’re going to be picking apples with robots in future, it will be from a planar canopy and fruit wall no more than 30cm thick. Our trials here are designed to see what is, and isn’t achievable, with this sort of canopy design, so we can develop costeffective, future-proof planting and management systems for our growers.” ■

Bespoke service creating modular buildings

DIY modular buildings made simple.

Agricultural diversification can be simplified by placing new enterprises inside an existing farm building without the need for planning permission (only Change of Use is required). They can also be placed outside, says Create a Cabin. Ranging in size from 20–150m2 the self-supported buildings are technically sophisticated and flexible, it says. Working to customer’s specific requirements, the insulated buildings arrive flat-pack in kit form for self-assembly, or with optional construction assistance. Made from polyurethane and galvanised steel, the horizontal panels are stacked on top of each other with an overhang to ensure they are washable and food grade

compliant. A PVC corner piece helps ensure clean, vermin-free buildings, making them ideal for artisan food preparation. Power, plumbing and flooring are connected after the build with local contractors. Experience shows that no two projects are the same due to size, budget or location, says Create a Cabin. The buildings are made to measure and can fit any space. Internal partitions can be provided to create offices, cold rooms, storage, showers and toilets as well as temporary accommodation and training rooms. Delivered within 4 weeks of order and priced at £250£400m2, they are a fast, economical way for forward thinking farmers to change direction and grow profit, the company says. ■

Fungicide option for grape growers Grape growers will have the option of another fungicide this season as Vivando (metrafenone) from BASF has been granted an EAMU in grapes and in hops. The manufacturer already offers UK grape growers Kumulus (sulphur) and as EAMU’s Percos (ametoctradin and dimethomorph), Stroby WG (kresoximmethyl), Sercadis (fluaxapyrad) and Regalis Plus (prohexadione). “In conjunction with industry group WineGB, metrafenone now has an EAMU for controlling powdery mildew in grapes, just in time for the season,” said Matthew Goodson of BASF. Vivando contains the active ingredient metrafenone and is formulated as a suspension concentrate containing 500g/litre active ingredient. It has a harvest interval of 28 days before harvest (up to and including berries ripe for harvest BBCH 83). “Powdery mildew is one of the most damaging diseases of grapes. It is worse in dry years and under warm conditions of between 18°C and 30°C. The symptoms are seen as a discolouration of leaves and flowers and a white dusting across the leaf surface,” said Mr Goodson.

“Metrafenone will be welcomed by vine growers as it offers a new fungicide group (benzophenones) which has no resistance or crossresistance.” It has a wide window of use and good rainfastness, making it more flexible to use, he added. Mr Goodson reminded growers that for any EAMU, they should obtain a copy of the notice of approval via the Chemicals Regulation Division (CRD) web site, ADAS offices or NFU. In the EAMU notice of approval, CRD points out that liability lies with the user and growers are advised to test a small area of crop prior to commercial use. ■

Flexible spraying solutions for growing contracting business Spray contracting business Howton Cropcare is steadily expanding, though its Cornish location has, to an extent, dictated the firm’s choice of machine size to handle a 12,500ha workload. “We don’t have the luxury of large fields and generous access,” explains Howton Cropcare director and sprayer operator Dave Allen. “Our average field size is just 4ha, and combined with a working radius of 30 miles, it puts pressure on being timely.” Based at Howton Farm, Saltash, Dave Allen along with co-directors Will Doidge and John Moss, have been pushing the spray business forward, and with it, the self-propelled fleet. And to make the most of its spraying opportunities, the firm has added a McConnel Agribuggy to sit alongside its existing Multidrive M420 equipped with a 4,000-litre tank and 24m boom. While a second M420 was the obvious choice,

it wasn’t going to give the firm a competitive advantage. “Many smaller farms with 8 or 12ha of cereals do have limited yard space and awkward field access,” he says. “So having a smaller, lighter and more agile machine offers a huge benefit for them and also for us.” Mr Allen saw the Agribuggy A280 with a 2,700-litre tank and 24m boom as the machine of choice. Its arrival also created the role of fulltime sprayer operator, which has been filled by experienced user Andrew Gillbard. “With an unladen weight of just 5.0t compared to the MultiDrive’s 9.5t, the Buggy suits smaller acreages and less well-drained land,” he says. “Its lower overall height and narrower chassis make it the first choice when you consider some of the narrow lanes with over-grown hedgerows and continued over...

Operator Andrew Gillbard likes the comfort offered by the Agribuggy’s cab.

The 24m boom and 2,700-litre tank create a compact, lightweight package for Howton Cropcare.

...from previous page

The firm also favours a mechanical driveline for its ability to hold a useful turn of speed on steeper slopes. Specification includes auto steering, 5-cylinder spray pump offering 335 litres/min output, TeeJet control system, stainless steel induction hopper and a variable geometry boom with 15 automatically controlled sections across its 24m width. Operator Andrew Gillbard is pleased with the Agribuggy, adding that traction is impressive, and the Buggy’s light weight means the sprayer is likely to keep going when others have to stop. “It has enough horsepower, and with a locking centre differential the traction is impressive, which is important given some of the steeper slopes that we have to spray,” says Andrew. “Disc brakes are reassuringly good too,

low trees that we have to negotiate.” But just as important was the ability to say ‘yes’ to additional work where they couldn’t – or wouldn’t – send the MultiDrive he adds. Since its arrival, Dave Allen reports that the contract spraying business continues to grow, and there is comfortably enough application work for both self-propelled sprayers. Spare capacity remains available too, which should help the business to continue moving forward. “We’ve also picked up some amenity work with the Buggy, and that includes spraying an increasing number of sports pitches, due to its very low ground pressure,” he says. Both sprayers use mechanical drivelines instead of the widely accepted and more commonplace hydrostatic drives.

and it doesn’t seem to drink its way through diesel.” With over 1,000 hours now on its clock, the business remains convinced of its flexible, two-machine approach to spray and fertiliser applications, as Dave Allen confirms. “As a two-man, two-sprayer system, we can go in different directions and still have capacity to spare,” adds Dave. “Having invested in a lightweight, ultra-low ground pressure machine, we’ve found that we can also extend our working window, perhaps getting on wetter ground much sooner, and staying on it much later.” All Agribuggy’s now come with two year warranty as standard, backed up by local McConnel dealer support. Existing customers have been automatically upgraded to this additional level of warranty cover free of charge. ■

Sprayers Zone concept for updated sprayer Comfort, simplicity and quality were the aims for the new Condor Endurance II by Agrifac. Like the existing StabiloPlus system it has a tank capacity of 8,000-litre, booms from 24–55m but it is also capable of travelling up to 60kph and is set up according to a new concept, says Agrifac. The sprayer has been divided into different zones. The front part of the sprayer, around and below the cab, is the only area used for filling, whether it is using the induction hopper or filling the main tank, water tank, diesel or AdBlue. The centre of the

sprayer includes tanks and storage while at the back of the sprayer are the pump systems and electronics for easy maintenance. All of them are situated in such a way that work is clean and safe, both during spraying and maintenance, without the risk of contamination or errors. The available track widths of the new Condor Endurance II ranges from 190-460cm. All models have a track width adjustment of 100cm. This, combined with the increased clearance of 138cm make the machine more versatile says Agrifac. Its maximum clearance is due to the new design of

the chassis, as well as the possibility to mount tyres with a diameter of up to 230cm. Despite the tall and wide tyres, the turning circle is still the same.

The higher clearance and tight turning radius means less crop damage at the spray tracks and therefore higher yields. ■

Innovations in spraying Sprayer specialist Berthoud has been producing machinery since 1895. Initially focussing on vine and agricultural spraying equipment it later became known for spraying and application techniques for all types of crops. Continuing with its tradition of innovation, Berthoud’s new 3-arm folding B3 Axiale Boom is compact and folds safely within the length of the machine. The new B3 booms are available on the Tracker mid-

range 3,200-litre trailed machine and Berthoud’s award-winning Vantage trailed range. The Berthoud Axiale booms have long proven stability and performance said a spokesperson. “They provide outstanding horizontal stability especially when turning and giving excellent performance on slopes. “This is all achieved due to its low centre of gravity resulting from the Axiale central pivot suspension design.” ■

Sprayers Trailed sprayer range expands Four new models have been added to the Oceanis range of trailed crop sprayers by Kuhn Farm Machinery. The Oceanis 5002, 5602, 6902 and 7702 machines have tank capacities of 5,000, 5,600, 6,900 and 7,700 litres respectively and are available with compact, all-aluminium booms in widths of 24–48m. The new sprayers are fully ISOBUS compatible, enabling them to be controlled from a single in-cab terminal such as Kuhn’s CCI 1200 console. A separate ISOCLICK control box which places the key sprayer controls (section control, boom height and angle) within fingertip reach can also be used. The new sprayers are also Canbus

compatible and can be operated via Kuhn’s Visioreb or REB3 controllers. Each new model is available with Kuhn’s Multispray system which uses electric nozzle holders to enable in-cab nozzle selection, automatic nozzle selection to suit the forward working speed and to maximise the accuracy of variable rate applications, plus individual nozzle control to reduce overlapping. The manufacturer’s e-SET cleaning system automates the tank rinsing sequence, making the Oceanis 2 extremely safe and efficient to use, while a new Closed Transfer System (CTS) chemical induction bowl – the Easyflow system – further enhances

operator safety by enabling chemicals to be added and chemical containers to be cleaned without the risk of the operator coming into contact with any harmful substances. Kuhn’s self-levelling boom system keeps the spray boom in the optimum position and height irrespective of field and crop conditions, thereby increasing spraying precision and reducing spray drift. This system is equipped with a hybrid mode which uses three sensors to distinguish between crop canopy and ground level, thereby improving spraying accuracy in high density crops such as oilseed rape or potatoes, or where the crop has lodged.

Sprayers Changes and updates to sprayer offering The updated Grimpeur JR boasts a new 170hp tier 4B engine.

During the past year Bargam has been making changes in the UK and has set up a bigger dealer network as well as improving and updating certain models. This year has seen the updated

version of the Grimpeur JR machine which is its small LGP self-propelled sprayer with tank capacities up to 3,000 litres and 30m booms. The updated machine boasts a new 170hp tier 4B engine with hydrostatic 50kph

eco drive over mechanical axles and cruise control as standard whilst also having the option of individual nozzle control and auto height control for the booms. The size and manoeuvrability make this machine well-suited for the smaller farm and it is recommended for contractors looking for a smaller, reasonably-priced machine. Later this year is the launch of the new trailed

The new trailed Spraymax will be launched later this year.

Spraymax which has been performing well in current trials. This will boast large tank capacities and boom sizes up to 36m with any spec. ■

Improved handling and performance with updates The Primus and Albatros trailed sprayers from Lemken have been given technical and handling improvements. The Primus 10 and 12 have tank capacities of 2,400–4,400 litres and boom widths of 15–30m, while the Albatros 10 and 12 have capacities of 4,000–6,200 litres and boom widths of 15–39m respectively. The smaller entry-level Primus has been completely overhauled inside and out, with clearer controls and all major connections are centrally integrated behind protective covers.

The attractive design is enhanced by a more rounded profile, LED lighting and new colour scheme. The updated in-cab control terminals are now equipped with an intuitive graphical user interface on the CCI-50 terminal. A differential GPS receiver can be retrofitted for use with proven CCI apps for automatic width section control or parallel tracking assistance. The Primus 12 and all Albatros models feature Isobus as standard and can be operated using any compatible terminal.

Lemken has revealed updates to its Albatros and Primus trailed sprayers.

A circulation line on the basic Primus means uniform spray fluid is instantly available across the full boom width. The EES models feature automated water hydraulics, and cleaning procedures can be controlled from the cab. A new flexible drawbar

allows operators to attach the sprayer either at the top or bottom position. The clean water tank capacity has also been increased to 320 litres. ■

Farmers Guide 25 years ago In October 1994 the Farmers Guide included a report on Norfolk Farm Machinery Club’s biennial autumn Normac demonstration which suffered from a heavy rainfall half way through the day. There were two very conspicuous tractor colours - John Deere green and Ford blue - on the 40 or so working plots. The latest JCB Fastrac 185 and a Fendt GTA Tool Carrier with a Sumo front-mounted press and an Amazone drill drew plenty of interest along with a 180hp Valmet with an 8f articulated plough. Heavy rain also affected the Tillage 94 event organised by the Agricultural Engineers Association and ADAS in Cambridgeshire. The ploughing outfits coped with the challenge of the muddy conditions but the drills and shallow cultivation equipment either gave up or didn’t even make a start. Wet weather also prevented any working on the second day of the Potato Marketing Board’s harvesting event near York where the latest Riecam 4wd, 4 row harvester attracted much interest. Grimme had the latest versions of its Variant harvester at the event and Richard Pearson demonstrated the Enterprise 2000 harvester. Ernest Cozens noted that machinery dealers had reported due to standing crops at harvest time, they had experienced low sales of harvesting spares but he thought this would be reversed when ploughing and cultivating the hard ground. Ernest also wrote that a south Norfolk farmer had lost 22 in-calf dry cows. They were killed by lightening during a severe thunderstorm. John Hodge’s Vintage Corner recalled that more than 1,500 American-built Massey Harris 21 combines with a 12ft cutter bar and a 22in

diameter drum were in use on British farms by the late 1940s. To bring readers right up to date, the October 1994 Farmers Guide included a preview of combine harvesters. New and improved models for the 1995 harvest included the New Holland TF 78 Electra with an air conditioned cab, floating header, self-levelling cleaning shoe and Infoview’ monitoring system. Massey Ferguson announced a new self-levelling cutter bar table for uphill and downhill work and Claas combines for 1995 included five Mega models with their Accelerated Preparation System. Case IH informed the Farmers Guide that tens of thousands of Axial Flow models had been sold around the world, explaining that the threshing rotor running at speeds of up to 1,000rpm was the only moving part in the threshing and separating system. And finally… Nine UK farmers became the first in the world to have combines with satellite positioning information. Signals from satellites 12,000 miles above the earth were used to pinpoint the combine’s position in the field and produce a yield map, with the aid of a computer. ■

November 9–10 Nottinghamshire – Newark Vintage Tractor and Heritage Show at the Newark Agricultural Showground.

At Cheffins’ recent Harrogate sale at the Great Yorkshire Showground, the auctioneers reported close on 1,000 entries. The top price of £17,490 was paid for a 1964 County Super-4 with a Cooke’s winch, other high prices included £14,628 for a 1996 Massey Ferguson 390 and a superbly restored MF 135 made £9,858.

Narrow track Ferguson TE 20 tractors The first Ferguson tractors with a 20hp engine, badged as the Ferguson Brown, were made in 1936 by David Brown at Huddersfield. Production moved to Detroit in 1939 where Ford launched the Ford Ferguson 9N. The first Ferguson TE 20 tractors (TE = Tractor England) were made by the Standard Motor Co at Coventry in 1946, American-built Continental petrol engines were used for early TE 20 tractors but within a year the first TE-A tractors with a standard petrol engine, four forward gears and one reverse came off the Banner Lane production. The tvo engined TE-D 20 appeared in 1949, followed by the TE–H 20 with a lamp oil engine in 1950 and the diesel-engined TE-F 20 was added in 1951. The specification included a starter safety switch operated with the gear lever, a top road speed of 13mph, adjustable track width, power

take-off and the Ferguson system three-point linkage. A belt pulley, attached to the power take off shaft, was among the many optional extras. Three narrow width models of the TE-A 20, TE-D 20 and TE-H 20, with a minimum rear track width of 42in compared with 48in on the standard tractors appeared between 1948 and 1950. 3 even narrower vineyard models with a 46in overall width were added to the range in 1952. Designated the TE-K 20, TE-L 20 and TE-M 20 they had petrol, tvo and lamp oil engines respectively, The lamp oil engined TE-M20 was made for the export market. Sales literature explained that these tractors, with a minimum 37in rear wheel track width, were designed for work in vineyards, orchards and sugar plantations but, at wider settings, they could be used with standard Ferguson implements. ■

A h

The Ferguson TE-L 20 vineyard tractor with a 21.4hp tvo engine was only 46in wide and had a minimum rear wheel track setting of 37in.

Helen brings a wealth of experience and success from multiple industries, including pharmaceuticals, the automotive industry, electronics, and some big names including Johnson & Johnson, Jaguar, and Novartis. As procurement and commercial director, Helen will oversee AF’s supplier and key partner network, as well as implementing AF’s procurement and commercial strategy in order to deliver more value to members.

Technical advisory role for Jim Egan Jim Egan has joined the Frontier team as Midlands technical advisor for the Kings crops team. He joins Frontier having worked since 2012 at the Game and Wildlife Conservation Trust’s Allerton project at Loddington in Leicestershire. Jim led work with a number of major supply chain brands and their farmers. Prior to this he was national technical director for the Farming and Wildlife Advisory Group (FWAG). Farming and the environment is Jim’s second career. He started his working life as a mining engineer in the Nottinghamshire coal field. His career change came in 2001 when he studied countryside management at Nottingham Trent’s Brackenhurst College. While still at college Jim was recruited by FWAG firstly as farm conservation adviser and latterly as

Technical and standards engineer The Agricultural Engineers Association (AEA) has announced the appointment of Stuart McClimont as a technical and standards engineer.

Joining from Kubota (UK) Ltd, Stuart previously managed the company’s Tractor Assembly, Inspection and R&D departments. Within his R&D role Stuart followed legislation for tractor engines, ride on mowers, excavators and side-by-side products.

He also sat on the Voluntary Initiative strategy group and a number of other national partnership and policy groups. “We’re delighted to welcome Jim to the team,” said Richard Barnes, sales manager for Kings. “The experience that Jim brings is significant because he will strengthen our advisory network and provide training to our own colleagues around agri-environment, greening and government policy. Jim will work closely with the wider Frontier soil and plant health team.”
