”The V660 provides the ideal bale quality with good solid bales and I have the flexibility to vary the bale size and core density when baling different crops.” Steve Lear farms over 800 hectares and finishes 400 Limousin suckler cattle. Steve does all his own baling with a McHale V660 Variable Chamber Baler. Each year 80% of the bales produced are 5ft bales of hay and straw while the remaining 20% are 4’6” bales of silage. Over the years Steve has used various brands of balers and he made the decision to purchase a McHale V660 as he felt “McHale designed machines are very solid and well built.” Steve commented “The McHale V660 provides the ideal bale quality with good solid bales and I have the flexibility to vary the bale size and core density when baling different crops. Steve produces 4ft 6” bales of silage and when he bales hay and straw he makes larger bales up to 5’6”. Steve said “I’ve done over 15,000 bales and never had any problems.” When asked if he is thinking about changing the baler Steve replied “No not at the moment, I am very happy with it. It makes good solid bales in all types of crop and in the various sizes I need. From what I see in magazines, McHale balers hold their value well and as a result I’m confident I will get a good resale price, so my investment is a good one.”

Out & About

In the October issue we hinted that there would be some new faces joining the Farmers Guide team, and we’re delighted to be able to introduce them to you this month. Bringing a combined wealth of 25 years’ publishing and journalism experience to the farmhouse table, editor Rachel Hicks and production editor Sarah Kidby are looking forward to injecting some fresh new ideas into the magazine, in addition to the content that our readers already know and love from experts such as machinery editor David Williams, plus arable aficionado Dominic Kilburn will be on hand. Taking the editorial helm, Rachel says, “I’m delighted to be able to join Farmers Guide at a time when the agri industry is, without a doubt, driving major innovations in terms of technology yet also honouring traditional methods. The team and I are looking forward to bringing you the most up-to-date news in the farming world, and developing an already hugely successful magazine into something even bigger and better.” This is also the perfect time to ask you what you’d like to see more of – if you’d like to give any feedback we’d love to hear from you on opinions@farmersguide.co.uk.

With both new team members keen to hit the ground running, Sarah wasted no time in getting her boots muddy – in her first week on the job, on 2nd October she took the versatile Mercedes-Benz Unimog out for a spin around Jimmy’s Farm in Ipswich, Suffolk. Joining Sarah at the all-day ‘Unimog on the Farm’ event was Farmers Guide sales manager Greg Goulding, marketing manager K.M Sharp plus demo engineer Rob Jones, who was in charge of the vehicle demonstration for Mercedes-Benz. The team relished the opportunity to experience the vehicle on the road, off-road and in the field, with other event attendees also being giving the chance to experience the vehicle operating with a variety of implements including mower, rakes and a cultivator. Full details of the Mercedes Unimog demo event will be in our December issue.

And finally… John arrives home from work to be greeted by his dog holding his neighbour’s pet rabbit in its mouth. The rabbit is dead, and John panics. He thinks his neighbours are going to hate him forever, so he takes the dirty chewed up rabbit

into his house. He gives it a bath, blow dries its fur and puts the rabbit back into the cage at his neighbour’s house, hoping that when they find it, they’ll think it died of natural causes. A few days later, the neighbour is outside in the garden and asks John over the fence; “Did you hear that our rabbit, Fluffy, had died?” John stumbled around and replied, “Um, no, what happened?” “We just found him dead in his cage one day,” the neighbour replied, “but the weird thing is that the day after we buried Fluffy, we went to clean out his cage and someone had dug Fluffy up, given him a bath and put him back into the cage!” Do you have a joke to share? If you’d like to brighten someone’s day, please send your joke to rachel.hicks@farmersguide.co.uk and it may be published. ■

UK farmers leading the way on climate change Farmers Guide editor Rachel Hicks applauds the agri industry for taking such huge steps towards net zero greenhouse emissions. Rest assured I won’t mention the B-word, as at the time of going to press the 31st October deadline is still looming and it remains to be seen whether we’ll be leaving the EU with a deal or not. But the other current conversation piece, climate change, has a much more positive outlook, particularly for the agricultural community. As one of her final acts as Prime Minister earlier this year, Theresa May announced a formal commitment to Britain reaching net zero carbon emissions by 2050, made via an amendment to the Climate Change Act on 27th June 2019. At the time, energy and clean growth minister Chris Skudmore said: “The UK kick-started the Industrial Revolution, which was responsible for economic growth across the globe but also for increasing emissions. “Today we’re leading the world yet again in becoming the first major economy to pass new laws to reduce emissions to net zero by 2050 while remaining committed to growing the economy – putting clean growth at the heart of our modern Industrial Strategy.” Bearing in mind that the UK’s 2050 net zero target is considered to be one of the most ambitious in the world, it’s incredibly encouraging to see the British farming industry taking this one stage further, with an even more determined goal to deliver the same result by 2040. In response to the RSPB’s 2019 State of Nature report, NFU president Minette Batters said: “One of the biggest issues the report identified is climate change. I’m pleased that farming is showing leadership in tackling this huge challenge that we all face. “We’ve set a target to reach net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2040 through improving land management and changing land use to capture more carbon, and planting more trees and hedges. Reducing our emissions and counterbalancing them through improvements in

productivity and renewable energy production will also play an important role.” Following the release of the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s special report on Climate Change and Land, released in August 2019, media coverage would have you think that reducing meat consumption is the key to positively affecting climate change. The NFU points out that the report actually takes a more balanced approach, by recognising that: 'land is both a source and a sink of greenhouse gas emissions, and; the consumption of food, feed, fibre, timber and energy have caused unprecedented rates of land and freshwater use, but that improved agricultural and forestry productivity have supported consumption and food availability for a growing population.' It’s worth noting that farming only accounts for one per cent of UK water usage, for example. Mitigating the level of risk of climate change is key to the agri industry. The IPCC report highlighted that this depends on both the level of warming, and on how population, consumption, production, technological development and land management patterns evolve. So, how can British farming reach this 2040 goal? The NFU has laid out three pillars of activity in its recent report 'Achieving Net Zero: Farming’s 2040 Goal'. Pillar one suggests a variety of measures to boost productivity and reduce emissions, as identified by the Committee on Climate Change (CCC), including ideas such as: using controlled release fertilisers and inhibitors to increase efficient use of nitrogen and reduce emissions; introducing feed additives to reduce methane emissions from ruminant livestock; precision farming for crops to deliver nutrients and crop protection efficiently; loosening and preventing soil compaction in cropland and

Mitigating the level of risk of climate change is key to the agri industry

pasture; gene editing for disease resistance; and a range of energy efficient measures. Pillar two discusses the conservation and enhancement of critical carbon resource by improving land management and changing land use to capture more carbon, for example producing bigger hedgerows, planting more woodland and more carbon-rich soils such as peatland and wetland soils. Pillar three focuses on 'boosting renewable energy and the bioeconomy to displace greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from fossil fuels and to create GHG removal through photosynthesis and carbon capture.' What is obvious from the NFU's report is that the farming industry cannot achieve this alone. It states farmers will need to be able to access specialist schemes which provide the knowledge, new technologies and tools so that, ultimately, productivity and profitability can continue while also meeting the environmental goals. This is where a domestic agricultural policy is needed, with support from Defra and the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy. It’s clear that farmers will have a huge role to play in meeting this target, and many have already embarked on a long journey of improvement. The IPCC Twitter account put it succinctly, when it announced the release of its report with: “Land is where we live. Land is under growing human pressure. Land is a part of the solution. But land can’t do it all.” ■

Black-grass control goes hand-in-hand with farm’s philosophy Are you 100 per cent committed to ridding your farm of black-grass? Dominic Kilburn spoke to an arable farming couple that is dedicated to the cause. Having a zero tolerance approach to black-grass control is a strategy that has been attributed to many over the past few years, as growers and agronomists alike have battled to keep the pernicious weed at bay using a mix of cultural and chemical controls on farms up and down the country. However there can be few who live up to the zero tolerance approach of arable farmers Rob and Mary Smithson, whose attention to detail in their approach to black-grass control is not only admirable, in terms of the hours they both dedicate to the cause, but also critical for the sustainability of their high quality seed growing business. Fretwell Farm, Beckingham is on the Nottinghamshire/Lincolnshire border close to Gainsborough. Of the 600ha farmed, typically 240–300ha are dedicated to growing first and second wheat seed each season. In addition, oilseed rape makes up the rotation. Rob has been growing wheat for seed for the past 45 years and so the farm’s philosophy is geared to producing clean, weed-free crops. “We’ve always grown seed here but with that comes the increased challenge and responsibility to ensure that what we produce is of the highest quality and free from all weed seeds,” says Rob. “Failing to achieve that, then we wouldn’t command the premium we receive over the commercial market,” he adds.

Black-grass impact Rob reckons that about 10 years ago he started to notice black-grass creeping into fields on the farm for the first time and, during the following seasons, it began to impact on the business. “We can’t be sure how it got onto the farm in the first place but in all likelihood some of it was from

winter wheat seed that we were supplied, and so that gives us an extra incentive to ensure the seed crops we produce are 100 per cent free of black-grass seed.” With black-grass testing positive for resistance, Rob initially took to spraying off large acreages with glyphosate where crops were infested, but then a strategy of spot spraying (by Rob with a knapsack) followed by hand rogueing (by Mary) was developed in tandem with more traditional methods of control. “Our agronomist, Graham Chester, works closely with us and advises that a stacked herbicide programme at the start of the season is vital to get good, early control of black-grass in autumn-sown crops,” explains Mary. “The problem is that those plants that escape this treatment are the most resistant to chemistry, and it is imperative for weed reduction that they are removed later in the spring by a knapsack sprayer-targeted glyphosate application. “Any remaining after that are hand rogued,” she adds. From May through to July, Mary typically spends up to 200 hours rogueing black-grass plants in winter wheat crops, often returning to the same field up to 3 times to achieve their goal of total black-grass elimination. Ordinarily this is no mean feat, but considering Mary holds a full-time job as a branch office manager for a firm of solicitors in Epworth, 10 miles north of the farm, her determination to succeed with this strategy is even more remarkable. “During the summer we both start in the fields at 5am; Rob with the knapsack sprayer and me hand rogueing, and then at around 7.45am I have to leave, return to the house, shower, change and set off for work in Epworth,” comments Mary. “Later in the evening, from 7–10pm, I’m back in the fields again,” she adds, pointing out that clocking up a 17-hour day is not unusual at that time of the year. Mary says that while cultural controls such as delayed drilling and stale seedbeds, as well as herbicides, are reducing blackgrass numbers each year there are limitations on the use of glyphosate as a seed producer. “The early knapsack spraying and rogueing policy is therefore key, especially if regulations tighten on the use of glyphosate in the future,” she comments. “Two years ago I spent 27 hours rogueing in one wheat field alone. The field was followed by OSR in 2018 – a crop well-known for harbouring and nurturing black-grass – and this year it returned to wheat, however there was not a sign of black-grass in that crop,” she explains. “The reward for all the hard work is looking Mary Smithson alongside a heap of black-grass plants she hand rogued earlier this summer.

A strategy of spot spraying with a knapsack followed by hand rogueing black-grass has been developed in tandem with more traditional methods of control on Fretwell Farm.

over clean crops and realising that the weed burden is depleting each year,” Mary says. Rob adds: “For harvests 2018 and 2019 we have put less than 1 per cent of the black-grass we started with – a target judged by not actually finding any plants in the crop – through the combine. In fact, our combine operator reckons he never sees a plant.”

Seed inspection AICC Yorkshire Arable Advice agronomist, Andrew Fisher (left), inspects seed grown on Fretwell Farm for distributors each season and he is impressed by the results Rob and Mary have achieved with their approach to black-grass control. “They have made super-human efforts to get on top of the black-grass situation across the whole farm, and especially in the seed crops. “On most farms where I inspect seed crops there’s always some areas for improvement in terms of black-grass control, and the continued loss of chemical actives means that the answer cannot be found in a can,” comments Andrew. “Rotation, cultivations, competitive varieties and, ultimately, rogueing – especially the surviving plants from a herbicide programme – is the only way to successfully tackle the issue. “Rob and Mary ensure that the quality of the seed which leaves their farm is of the highest standard and other growers can learn from their dedication,” he concludes. ■ November 2019 www.farmersguide.co.uk

Shallow cultivations and cover crops deliver results Shallow cultivation with catch crop roots generally gave the best results in terms of black-grass control, soil structure and, ultimately, crop yield.

have been most successful at Lamport – black oat has been particularly good at getting its root system down and creating drainage, helping to move water down through the soil profile. “When it comes to direct drilling of the spring crop, we want as little soil disturbance as possible and as well as its good drainage-creating properties, black oat roots stabilise and hold the soil together when going through with a drill,” he pointed out. “What we have observed with fallow plots however, where no catch crops were planted, is that there is more water run-off during the winter months. And so when it comes to direct drilling in the spring, the soil is very wet underneath the surface as it has had no conditioning. Along with that, one typically sees an increase in black-grass and poorer crop yield by comparison,” he said.

Soil health

Agrovista’s heavy land trials site in Northamptonshire, Project Lamport, continues to focus on finding solutions for growers to reduce black-grass on their farms. This year, trials have also highlighted soil health and cultivation benefits. Dominic Kilburn writes. While there’s no doubt that a lot of UK arable farmers are focusing their attentions on reduced cultivations and moving towards direct drilling regimes, for agronomic and cost saving reasons, many farmers still operate under the principle of “the sooner we get the cultivator in behind the combine, the better”. That’s according to Agrovista technical consultant Niall Atkinson (right) who is involved with the company’s heavy land black-grass site, Project Lamport, near Maidwell in Northamptonshire. In recent trials work there, the combination of shallower cultivation tines and cover crops over two very different seasons has delivered good results in terms of setting up land in the autumn for a crop to be drilled the following spring. Mr Atkinson reckons that pulling a tine through the ground at 200–250mm after harvest is still accepted as normal practice on many farms, and sometimes without a true understanding of why it’s being done. “Pulling tines through at that depth not only mixes black-grass seed down through the soil profile, resulting in germination from variable depths, but it can also do quite a lot of damage to the soil structure itself,” he pointed out. “Let’s imagine we achieved an average yield of between 10–12t/ha of wheat across a field, then the soil will have been pretty well structured to deliver that. So why do we go in and destroy the root and worm channels getting rid of the natural re-structuring that has occurred?

“I know from my past experience as a farms manager that it was easier for me to say ‘cultivate everything’, and a lot harder for me to say ‘don’t cultivate’, but proper soil diagnostics can help us decide when we need to cultivate and where,” he added.

Black-grass focus Primarily, Project Lamport was started seven years ago to help growers on heavy land with the everincreasing burden of black-grass, and Mr Atkinson said that this remains the number one priority for the trials site. The two “big hitters” for successful control over that time have been spring crops and rotational ploughing, with other cultural control methods collectively assisting to help achieve the desired level of control. “That said, heavy and wet soils don’t lend themselves to spring cropping and this is where we have seen the benefit from cover crops in the past few years of the trials,” explained Mr Atkinson. He said that it is key that cover crops (or more accurately in this case described as catch crops) don’t smother the black-grass – better that they allow the black-grass to germinate at the same time. “A seed rate of about 75 plants/m2 for the catch crop is about right because we want to encourage the activity from the black-grass,” he explained. According to Mr Atkinson, catch crops including black oat, berseem clover and phacelia

As well as success in reducing black-grass levels and growing spring cereals on heavy land, Mr Atkinson said that over time the trials have also shown clear soil health benefits, and this prompted Agrovista to look at the interaction of roots with and without cultivator metal passing through the soil. Over the past 2 years, autumn trials have included up to 11 different treatments with tines passing through the soil at 125 and 250mm depths, with and without planting catch crops (black oats and phacelia), as well as plots left untouched (fallow). In the following spring, wheat was direct drilled over half the width of each plot with the crop monitored for the remainder of each season. “Autumn 2017 turned out to be a very wet continued over...

Undisturbed fallow: With nothing done to this plot last autumn ahead of planting spring wheat, there was little in the way of crop competition and black-grass had taken over.

Leaving it late With the late drilling slot upon us, Farmers Guide seeks advice on winter wheat choice and management, and the trade-offs involved at this stage of the season.


Most varieties have a preferred sowing window during which they can be expected to deliver their best performance. Outside this timeframe and aspects such as plant vigour, maturity and yield can be compromised. In many instances, these can be managed through variety choice, says KWS product development manager, John Miles (right), but first it is important to understand the distinction between crops sown in the late autumn to those sown in the winter, such as after roots. “It’s largely about understanding the trade-offs that arise when sowing outside the mid-September to mid-October period when varieties usually perform to their optimum. It is possible to push most varieties into the late-autumn

slot, but some are more suited than others. Those considered to be slow to get going in the spring, for example, tend to produce a poor quality sample at harvest when sown late,” he says. As ever the devil is in the detail, but fortunately recent changes to the Recommended List trials mean variety performance at the late-autumn timing is largely well reflected. “The move to more early-October and fewer mid-September sown trials was partly to reflect changes in grower practices concerning blackgrass, but also the loss of certain insecticidal seed treatments. This has been to the benefit of those varieties that do better when sown in the late autumn,” he says. A good late drilling variety, therefore, is one that combines KWS Siskin is naturally well-suited to sowing after mid-October.

good autumn and spring vigour without compromising other attributes such as straw strength, grain quality and even maturity, he explains. “The more vigorous types, such as KWS Kerrin and KWS Siskin are both varieties naturally well-suited to sowing after midOctober. Both combine good autumn and spring vigour, though of the two KWS Siskin is the more vigorous, and good grain quality. Spring vigour is an often-overlooked characteristic, but it is central to how a variety finishes come the summer. For many growers, how well a variety finishes will come down to personal experience,” he says. For those seeking a variety to sow after roots, variety suitability will be determined by whether drilling occurs before or after the New Year. “Once December arrives variety choice becomes a more specialised affair. KWS Crispin is the outstanding choice at this stage. Once into the New Year most growers will find it more worthwhile to wait until spring and drill either spring wheat or spring barley,” he says.

Seed rate care Those drilling winter wheat late in the season need to carefully

consider their seed rates, says Limagrain arable technical manager, Ron Granger (left), particularly if it turns out to be a good autumn. “When you’re drilling in late October and into November, there’s a general feeling that seed rates should be upped at that time of the season, whatever the state of the seedbed and the conditions, however if the weather is kind, there is moisture and the seedbed is good, then it’s important to keep them at a sensible level,” says Mr Granger. “Seed rates in the region of 350–375 seeds/m2 are sufficient if conditions are good – increasing them for poor, cloddy seedbeds and later drilling dates – but growers should drill according to their situation; seed rates that are too high will result in weak strawed crops,” he adds. Mr Granger reckons Limagrain’s high yielding soft Group 4 varieties, including LG Skyskraper, Spotlight and Motown, are ideal for the late drilling slot as they have the attributes of good tillering and are quick to get away in the spring. “Skyscraper for example, which has again out-yielded everything in trials this year, has shown itself to be very competitive in this situation, has good tillering and is very quick continued over...

Stay off the land until you can drill to an even depth without clods, even if this means waiting until the spring Move as little soil as possible when drilling, sow to a consistent 3–4cm depth, place enhanced availability P with the seed, if possible, and consolidate well. Use the best quality seed available from fast-developing varieties with a high black-grass competitiveness. Treat the seed to boost root development and, where necessary, to combat take-all. Sow at 400–450 seeds/m2, depending on conditions, to achieve spring populations of around 320 plants/m2. Spray off weeds and volunteers as close to drilling as possible and include a permitted glyphosate with the pre-em, if necessary. Use a flufenacet-based pre-em, including a specialist adjuvant to improve activity and crop safety. Assess slug pressure well ahead of sowing and achieve the best possible kill before drilling with targeted pelleting. Apply a good dose of early spring N, accompanied by P, K and S where possible and maintain regular top-dressing ahead of earlier plantings. Consider early spring rolling, an early low temperature active PGR and early foliar Mn, Zn and B.

Benchmark your soil to identify it’s true potential With plateauing yields and organic matter depletion there is now a scientific solution that will help restore the health of your soil.



In the first autumn without insecticide seed treatment Deter, growers should place added emphasis on seedbed quality. While it was primarily used to protect cereal crops from barley yellow dwarf virus (BYDV), Deter also had a repellent effect against slugs around treated seed, reducing feeding and the subsequent hollowing which can compromise establishment. For agronomy group Hutchinsons’ technical manager Dick Neale, seed hollowing is often the result of poor, cloddy seedbeds, which growers using Deter could get away with. That is no longer the case. “Now growers need to think about cultural methods, which includes addressing seedbed quality. Slug control is about a good, friable seedbed and good seed-to-soil contact to limit movement,” he explains. In addition to cultural methods, Herefordshire agronomist Antony Wade (right) advises monitoring with traps in stubbles or cultivated ground ahead of establishment and treating with a ferric phosphate-based pellet immediately after drilling if slug risk is identified. “I have moved over to ferric phosphate from metaldehyde over the past two years and have been very happy with its performance. There are also no concerns when using the product around watercourses. “I would recommend going with a premium pasta-based type, as the pellets are much more resilient in wet conditions,” adds Mr Wade. This durability may be needed according to Certis western regional technical manager Geoffrey Bastard, who says the wet autumn is likely to increase slug pressure considerably. “Sluxx HP pellets contain an anti-mould agent, which will maintain palatability and protect the crop, even after periods of heavy or prolonged rainfall. Keep monitoring after initial applications, as follow up treatments will be needed where Seed hollowing is often the result of poor, cloddy seedbeds. slug risk remains high.”



Seedbed quality key to reducing slug seed hollowing this autumn


Limagrain’s high yielding soft Group 4 varieties, including LG Skyskraper, Spotlight and Motown (pictured), are ideal for the late drilling slot as they have the attributes of good tillering and are quick to get away in the spring.

out of the blocks in the spring which is also key to out-compete black-grass,” he explains. “Many of the newer high yielding varieties are taller strawed and, while not the stiffest, the late drilling slot suits them,” he adds. At the bread-making end of the spectrum, Group 2 variety LG Detroit can be drilled up until the end of January, but is a high vernalisation requirement variety (a Crusoe cross), so that is its latest drill date. Limagrain’s agronomy work suggests that LG Detroit benefits from a higher seed rate if sown later in the season as the variety does tend to drop tillers quickly in the spring if in a stress situation such as a drought. “The significant thing about Detroit though is that it is stiff strawed and comes with orange wheat blossom midge (OWBM) resistance,” concludes Mr Granger. ■

Field f cus Crop yields last harvest were good for both our agronomists on the whole, but rain has been the dominant factor since causing disruption to autumn drilling and input programmes. Dominic Kilburn writes. Nottinghamshire AICC Arable Alliance agronomist Andrew Wells said that harvest for his farmers had been better than expected, despite experiencing catchy weather with more drying needed than usual. In summary though, he reckoned that there was a decent quantity of cereal crops in the shed for them to sell. “We had drought conditions in the spring until early June but rainfall came just in time for most crops, although perhaps not for those drilled early or on the lighter land,” he pointed out. However while the cereals in particular yielded well, with relative consistency, oilseed rape was “all over the shop,” reported Andrew. “It was very variable – many crops were hit by larvae damage in the spring, which together with the dry conditions limited nutrient uptake, while late frosts in April hit some hard,” he added. Andrew suggested that it was a difficult decision whether to rip up OSR crops in late April, replacing them with spring barley or maize, but with propyzamide herbicides already applied, most crops were left to see what they would achieve. “The better oilseed rape crops yielded 3.5–4.0t/ha but there are

many crops around 2.5–3.0t/ha and some others that struggled to make 2.0t/ha. “As a consequence the area put down to rape this year by my growers will be 30–40 per cent less,” commented Andrew. Speaking on 9th October, nothing in the way of cereals had been drilled following 5-inches of rain over the preceding 2 weeks. He suggested that those waiting to put 2- and 6-row conventional winter barley in the ground will be very aware of the clock ticking, while growers with hybrid seed have a little longer. “We’ve been in this situation before and when there is a break in the weather farmers can drill a lot of fields in a very short time. We hope to get the winter barley completed by the time this magazine lands on the doormat and there is plenty of time for the wheat drilling as long as we get some drier weather. “Growers here are serious about grass weed control and this period will provide a decent black-grass chit for spraying off with glyphosate,” he added. The main question on Andrew’s mind however is what condition seedbeds will be in when mainstream drilling does get underway, and how that may affect decisions regarding pre-emergence herbicide applications. “If it’s not possible to roll, it

might be better to hold back on pendimethalin before crop emergence as you can get problems with crop damage from herbicide movement to the seed in cloddy/ uneven seedbeds,” he explained. “Once the crop’s roots have gone down a bit then a flufenacet + pendimethalin application early post-em might be more suitable.” Andrew reckoned that, of the oilseed rape area currently in the ground, the mid-August drilled crops (which caught some rain) are very forward and yet to see any damage from flea beetle larvae. Although he pointed out that these crops are not safe yet. The late August/early Septemberdrilled crops, which also got moisture, are looking okay despite taking a beating from adult flea beetles. However, for those fields that were drilled late, and where there was poor seed-to-soil contact, plants are still very small and are being damaged by adult flea beetles. Rape winter stem weevil has also been a significant problem in some areas. “The adults lay their eggs in the crop from late September through to midOctober and we have been trying to obtain control with pyrethroids, which hopefully will take out some larvae too.”

Northumberland Harvest was one of the best we’ve had across the full range of crops, said AICC Northumberlandbased agronomist, Jim Callighan, who pointed out that the only downside was the very wet and stormy August which caused a loss of Hagbergs for some of the quality wheats, while also flattening a number of oat crops

and preventing them from making the top grade. Oilseed rape, which is divided between HEAR, Clearfield and clubroot resistant varieties under his charge, performed well on his growers’ farms: 4.2–5.1t/ha being a typical yield for most of northern Northumberland. “Clubroot resistant variety Chrome has yielded particularly well,” pointed out Jim. Since harvest, fieldwork has been very much stop and go and Jim reckons that, in terms of winter crop sowing, growers are about 7–10 days behind schedule. “We’ve not seen the forward growth in oilseed rape as yet either, and while flea beetle is not the issue as it is further south, we’ll look at applying biostimulants in early- to mid-November to give crops a bit of a boost, alongside leaf spot applications. “Normally I wouldn’t bother with that recommendation but they are a little backward,” he said. Also speaking on 9th October, Jim said that wheat drilling is normally completed by the middle of the month, and those crops that are already in the ground are coming through nicely. “There is a little concern for late drilling of winter oats, which tend to be prone to frost heave, and they need to get well established and ideally rolled prior to the colder weather. “That said, winter oats can be drilled in the spring as they don’t need vernalisation, and can still provide acceptable yields. “For now though, we are trying to catch up with all the autumn residuals – there remains a lot of wheat and barley to be sprayed but farmers are currently prioritising drilling rather than spraying. For the North, delayed drilling is not an option.” Jim Callighan can be contacted on email: agcon@supanet.com. ■

Balancing biodiversity and production to achieve healthy farming Seed developers, crop protection companies and growers need to work more closely together to keep on top of pests and disease. This was the key message from a recent event held at BASF’s Nunhem site in the Netherlands. Heather Briggs reports. New challenges, such as an increasing number of extreme weather events, are facing the sector, and crops not only have to be able to withstand them, but also still deliver yield and quality. “Economic stability is crucial to a profitable farming business, and this relies on effective chemistry to ensure affordable food production,” said BASF Agricultural Solutions, Sub-Region West vice president Nicolas Kerfant. “However, we cannot treat chemistry like a silver bullet and we have to use it in partnership with cultural controls such as wide rotations, delayed drilling and ensuring the best cultivation strategies. “We also need to ensure farms are sustainable, both economically and environmentally, so working with nature is also a key focus.”

Crop yields and quality He also drew attention to the BASF Sustainability Farms Network which is helping other growers find the balance between crop yields and quality and care for the environment. Northamptonshire-based farmer, agronomist and environmental consultant Andrew Pitts has been working closely with BASF for more than 15 years. “Moving towards more holistic ways of farming and improving diversity across the farm can help balance profitable crops and healthy soils, and therefore improve sustainability,” said Mr Pitts. “This, in turn, assists farmers by partly mitigating the challenges from the recent loss of a number of key active ingredients. “Reducing chemistry use is not easy when pest and/or disease pressure is high, so building resistance into the crop varieties we grow can make a real contribution to quality and yield.” Resilient crop varieties can play a key role in pest resistance, so varietal choice is crucial. In addition to developing new varieties of vegetable crops such as carrots in its recently acquired seed vegetable

company Nunhems, BASF is also developing a hybrid winter wheat which will most likely start in the mid-2020s in France and Germany, with the UK following closely. “We are working to connect seed, traits and chemical crop protection to provide growers with a range of potential solutions and help minimise risk,” said BASF vegetable seeds senior vice president, Vicente Navarro.

Digital Digital platforms are also under development to optimise timing and application methods and help growers get the best results from their products. Moreover, combining digital tools, such as smart sprayers and targeted weeders, and the use of field mapping, is expected to help ensure compliance with even tighter regulatory requirements, said the company. New BASF chemistry includes the recently approved fungicide Revysol (isopropanol-azole), with Revysol based-products available in the UK market from spring 2020, plus the soil residual herbicide Luximo tackling the challenge caused by black-grass, with expected availability in the EU in 2022, subject to successful authorisation. This may happen earlier in the UK, if the political/ regulatory environment allows. ■

Taking irrigation control to a new level

Canopee allows remote programming of valves and monitoring of water flow, soil moisture and air temperature – all from the office.

As water scarcity becomes an increasing problem, Wroot Crop Systems says the agriculture industry will need to look at irrigating more wisely, avoiding run-off and irrigating to match the infiltration rate of the soil. Having led the field with drip and sprinkler systems for 20 years, the company says it has now taken valve control and in-field monitoring to a new level – using a combination of different communication technologies. The Canopee Irrigation Control System allows remote programming of valves and monitoring of

water flow, soil moisture and air temperature – all from the office. Data can then be viewed on a smartphone or tablet, so users can be informed of problems before visiting the field. The software and apps are free, meaning no ongoing costs for the user. Canopee can also operate without mains power or wires. It is a standalone system that improves precision irrigation – allowing the amount of water for each valve to vary according to soil type and crop growth stage. This new irrigation control system can be retrofitted to existing Wroot Water Systems, as well as other brands of irrigation system on the market. ■

Are you making the most of your farm’s potential? Weather network proves a hit with UK farmers Software company Farmplan is attending this year’s CropTec to showcase its range of crop management solutions, which are designed to help growers and agronomists managing farms of all sizes to record, review, share and analyse their data. The company says this helps to improve workflows, drive efficiencies and meet all legislative requirements with ease. Farmplan’s software focuses on three key points. Firstly, collating and reviewing data from multiple sources, including soil types, sampling results, VR drill maps, fertiliser applications and yield maps. Full analysis of field, farm, variety and crop also helps users to understand the cost of production and make more informed choices. Finally, Farmplan says it offers a flexible approach to integrate with machines, agronomy advice and data sources. Its Gatekeeper software helps to ‘get under the surface of crop performance’, the company says – analysing yields, identifying trends, and gaining a better understanding of crop productivity. From field mapping, soil sampling and

conductivity scanning, to soil types, importing data from in-cab devices and the creation of variable rate plans, Gatekeeper allows users to maximise the value of their farm data and make well-informed choices, Farmplan says. Arable farm manager Damien Burnell, 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 average yields rose by 1t/ha.” Farmplan will be on Stand 1.90 at CropTec. ■

Farmplan says its range of crop management solutions help growers and agronomists to record, review, share and analyse their data.

More than 300 farms have connected to a pioneering user-led weather network since its January launch, underlining how ultra-local, in-field data can support improved decisionmaking and accuracy for agronomic tasks such as spraying. The connected weather stations, from agtech start-up Sencrop, take advantage of new precision technology to provide accurate, farm-specific weather data, rather than relying on general, regional forecasts. More than 10,000 are already in use across Europe. “But it’s not just about the data from your farm,” explains Sencrop co-founder, Martin Ducroquet. “Sencrop’s unique network allows you to choose whether to share your weather data with other Sencrop farmers who have decided to do the same. “With weather data, it’s a case of ‘the more, the merrier’. This is collaboration in action.” Sharing data with your neighbours, says Mr Ducroquet, allows the smartphone app through which the system operates to analyse many more data points. “Extra data makes forecasting software more

Sencrop doesn’t need a 3G or 4G mobile signal to transmit, so it is deployable wherever a farmer needs it.

accurate. Everyone benefits.” Temperature, wind speed, humidity and rainfall and leaf wetness are among the metrics that the station records and uploads to the cloud every 15 minutes. “Sencrop doesn’t need a 3G or 4G mobile signal to transmit, which makes it deployable almost anywhere a farmer needs to put it,” points out Mr Ducroquet. Sencrop owners report using their stations for tasks such as recording day-degrees to calculate T-Sum 170 for BYDV aphid treatment thresholds, monitoring temperature and humidity in potato crops for blight control decisions, and the ability to monitor weather at parcels of remote land to judge suitability of conditions for spraying. ■

Tractor test

Latest tractors offer tantalising glimpse of the future From the outside there isn’t a great lot different about New Holland’s latest T8 offering compared with previous models. But just a quick glance inside the cab makes it clear that the R&D team has been very busy. David Williams tried it out. New Holland’s concept autonomous tractor did the rounds at UK shows a few years ago, with a futuristic cab incorporating bright-lit digital displays shouting about what tractors of the future might look like. Now the future is here and the ‘T8 Genesis with PLM Intelligence’ Horizon cab shares many characteristics with the experimental machine, including large, brightly coloured crystal clear displays that will appeal to operators. The latest T8 line-up includes 5 models from 320–435hp (max EPM) and, like the previous range, the target market is larger arable farms and contractors, many of who will already be using precision farming technology to optimise efficiency of operations.

Most upgrades inside From the outside, along with new decals, the most obvious indication that the tractor is the latest model is the lack of a B-pillar on the left side of the cab. Removing this has allowed a larger door for improved cab access. Central locking is available using a new remote key which also incorporates a coded immobiliser. A master key can be programmed to access and start a whole fleet of the

farm’s tractors while other operator keys can have access to different tractors allowed or denied. The cab frame is similar to before, but a complete redesign resulting from user consultation includes extra storage for large items as well as odds and ends. The cab floor includes shaped compartments which prevent loose items rolling about. With increasing use of electricpowered accessories there are a large number of 12-volt power points as well as USB-charging connectors. To the side of the driver’s seat in a large storage compartment, there is even a 240-volt socket likely to be popular with those who need to charge laptops during the working day. With a nod to its American heritage the new T8 Genesis has leather upholstery similar to traditional American lorries or pick-ups, which is functional but extremely comfortable. Heating and ventilation are upgraded with programmable zone control and additional vents. Another update is improved semiactive cab suspension. Actuators under each side of the cab adjust the firmness of the ride while a large anti-roll torsion bar at the rear keeps the cab level.

 The new T8 Genesis looks similar to previous models on the outside, apart from new decals and the lack of a B-pillar on the left side of the Horizon cab, improving visibility and access.

Excellent visibility Both rear view mirrors are on telescopic arms – allowing extension for use with high trailers and retraction to prevent damage when the extra length isn’t needed, using a switch in the cab. Front and rear cameras are standard and up to two additional cameras can be specified linked direct to the screen for implement or trailer monitoring. The front camera has a 170-degree field of vision, increasing safety for those emerging from fields on to a road through a hedge for example, where the view to the sides would otherwise be impaired. For those working at night, 30 per cent extra lighting performance is available. New Holland T7, T8 and continued over...

Access is improved with a wider-opening cab door. ...from previous page

T9 product marketing manager for Europe, Darragh Mullin, talked Farmers Guide through the new model’s features and benefits, and he explained that the optional top specification 360-degree LED light package is currently the most popular lighting upgrade. However, an even more powerful 49,400-lumen light set for the new Genesis models is expected to prove even more popular.

Space-age instrumentation is clear and easy to view. There are more functions, but fewer controls.

Traditionally New Holland has been closely aligned with Trimble for its display and guidance hardware but the new IntelliView 12 terminals for the T8 Genesis were designed inhouse and use an Android operating system. This has given New Holland a free hand to incorporate any features it needs and, although the demonstration machine terminal included many new functions, developments continue and there is the potential for upgrades later – many of which remain secret for now. Darragh explained that as use of precision farming technology increases, it’s likely that communication within a local network, including other machines in the field, will be the priority, while telematics for remote task monitoring and management will also be increasingly important. “Although full autonomous operation might be some way off yet, it’s likely that we will see linked machines working together much sooner, perhaps within just a few years. Examples would be a leader and follower situation for machines engaged in field work, or a tractor and trailer controlled automatically while a combine unloads.” The amount of data required to

allow ‘decisions’ to be made by the system in operations of this type is huge, and the new T8 has four Canbus networks rather than two on previous models. The main display is integral to the tractor and not intended to be swapped between machines, which suggests that New Holland sees it as the tractor’s brain rather than an accessory. With massive potential for upgrading in future, could these tractors be capable of fully autonomous operation as development of systems and

Machinery legislation continues? Darragh didn’t agree or disagree but stated that it’s safe to assume the new T8 Genesis has the ‘building blocks’ for future autonomous operation if and when it becomes viable.

Operator friendly A new SideWinder Ultra armrest is customisable, and divided into 3 areas with functions required 85 per cent of the time accessed through the Command Grip multi-function joystick. Those needed less often are adjacent on the main console and those used only 5 per cent of the time are in a strip further to the right. There are quick access buttons for 2 pre-set engine speeds, diff lock and 4wd, 5 configurable remotes which all incorporate easily-set locking functions, and up to 11 buttons which can be programmed with specific functions to suit user preference and applications. A handy new feature making it easier to select and control hydraulic valve functions is the ability to configure and colour-code each switch to suit the task. The switches change colour to indicate the selected function and each can be configured for five function areas, with additional options available

within each function menu. The increased customisation, with many controls capable of multitasking, has resulted in 17 per cent fewer buttons and switches than previously, and the cab feels less cluttered than before. All telephone controls are on the armrest, heat and ventilation settings are also conveniently to hand, and a new linkage control design in the form of a fixed computer ‘mouse’ for both front and rear linkages is also included. The mouse is palm-shaped with buttons and a scroll selector and allows all linkage functions to be controlled without the operator repositioning his hand. To the right of the mouse is a smaller joystick which includes

forward/reverse shuttle selector buttons, gear shift or range selector buttons as well as 2 configurable buttons. The new Command Grip joystick design includes 20 per cent more buttons than before, and is now Isobus- and vehicle-configurable. Isobus Class 3 is also available for the first time on T8 models allowing tractor control by implement and additional complex functions. Obviously significant investment in hardware development has been made, and Darragh confirmed that, although the new T8-series have been selected as the first to have it, other tractors in the range will have it in future and it will also appear on New continued over...

A new remote key fob option offers extra security. Different users on a farm can have access to individual tractors permitted or denied.

Holland machines such as harvesters. A simplified form of the system through a retro-fit IntelliView 12 display will be available for other brands for maximum compatibility across a farm or contracting fleet.

Simpler hardware Previous models had a separate GPS receiver, navigation controller and modem, but New Holland’s new GPS system is reduced to just two components making it simpler and easier to swap between machines. New Holland claims an advantage of the new guidance hardware is that, because it is supplied and maintained through the New Holland main dealer, it’s easier to gain after-sales service and advice. Increased compatibility with up to nine GPS satellite networks helps future-proof the system and will ensure accuracy in almost any location. N-Trip network compatibility provides accurate guidance by phone signal without a base station, but for those with RTK the new system is also fully compatible.

Maximum uptime Meeting Stage 5 emissions regulations has been achieved through a larger catalyst chamber and without EGR or increased Adblue use. The fuel and Adblue tanks of the latest T8 are identical to its predecessor. Servicing is every 600 hours as on previous models. A handy new feature is selfcalibration of auto-steer. All that is

required is to set auto-calibration mode on the display, drive 100m in one direction and back again, and calibration is complete. The latest track assemblies on SmartTrax half-track models have bolton rollers making replacement easier and the new rollers are also available to retro-fit to existing tractors. Rubber tracks are by Camso but New Holland is currently trialling Soucy tracks with a view to offering users an option.

Remote assistance services New Holland Intelliview Connect is a service allowing the tractor operator to share his Intelliview display with a supervisor or dealer when requested, for assistance or problem solving. Remote diagnostics allows the tractor’s systems to be checked for faults and, if the problem is caused by a setting error or software issue, there is the opportunity to correct it remotely at the time, or if parts are needed then the necessary component can be identified and an engineer can bring it for fitting, potentially saving a diagnostic visit. Remote firmware updates are also available wirelessly. Maintenance requirements and fault notifications can also be monitored, allowing the dealer and user to schedule servicing and minimise downtime.

Practical test-drive The flagship T8 Genesis 435 SmartTrax was working away from public view on a large Oxfordshire estate, with a Vaderstad Carrier cultivator on postharvest cereal stubble which gave plenty of opportunity to try setting up and using the new control and guidance systems. The in-house designed main IntelliView 12 terminal has working logic similar to a tablet and proved easy to use with simple menus accessed by touching the screen. Along the top of the display is an information bar with clear icons indicating which functions are selected and in use. The practical design doesn’t only include operation

Interactive The new display is more interactive than anything seen before and the user can touch the screen to zoom in or out and even rotate the view. A handy feature is the ability to record screenshots by pressing and holding the camera screen symbol. The images are stored and can be easily shared with others to highlight information of interest from performance data to guidance or Isobus-control images. For task and machine management the user selects the task by description, then the attachment from a farm-specific drop-down list. Additional implements are easily added when needed. Full dimensions of the implement can be input and displayed for reference and an accurate diagram is shown. When the operator chooses the task and implement from the menu, the guidance screen displays an image of the tractor and implement together – a clever feature which helps ensure the correct equipment and task have been selected for accurate record keeping. The new IntelliView 12 display provides very easy set-up of guidance modes and working strategies which means that, with familiarity, just a few minutes is needed at the start of a task or a new field to create an efficient working pattern. For simultaneous use of the screen for guidance while controlling and monitoring Isobus-compatible implements, the user has the option to select a split screen view.

Additional storage space throughout the cab includes a shaped floor to prevent items rolling around.

The latest SmartTrax tracks have bolt-on rollers making them easier to replace. New Holland plans to increase the range of rubber tracks offered and is currently testing Camso versions.

New dashboard display The previous A-pillar post display is replaced by Info View. This is a full colour display on the front console, providing essential tractor operating information including travel speed, engine revs, fuel level and temperature. Additional information such as cruise control speed settings are also available at a glance. As well as displaying operational information, a camera feed will also be available continued over...

The latest T8 Genesis models are Isobus 3 compatible. Up to six rear hydraulic valves can be specified and, for those using front-mounted implements a new option is mid-mounted valves with dedicated controls, avoiding the need for a shared oil supply from the rear.

in future upgrades, with the digital screen reconfiguring to prioritise the camera image with all other information minimised and relocated.

Verdict Although the new glowing displays look complex at first, it’s actually very easy to use the menus and work out how to check and change the main settings. The new control layout is excellent and everything is within easy reach. The colour-coded hydraulic controls make it easy to see at a glance which are needed and, if a different colour is preferred, then with a few touches of the screen the change can be made. The front instrument panel with its new Info View display provides most of the

Tractor test tractor performance information needed for the road and in the field and, because there is so much included, there is less need to refer to the main IntelliView 12 display, allowing the operator to keep his eyes to the front. The new cab is easier to access through the wider opening door and, although the cab is the same size physically as its predecessor, it actually feels larger, mainly due to the revised instruments and control layout. Comfort is excellent and a run along a bumpy farm track emphasised the performance of the new cab suspension, although the luxury leather seats also played their part in the ride quality. Brake to steer is new on SmartTrax models with customisable steering improving manoeuvrability and turning performance and reducing scuffing during turns. Looking beyond all the clever functions available on the demonstration tractor, and mindful of the fact that many more remain in development for adding later, the new T8 Genesis PLM Intelligence series is likely to be an attractive long-term investment for professional farmers and contractors. It’s capable of so much more

than cultivating stubble with an operator at the wheel and, in future – depending on legislation and industry acceptance, more of its capabilities will hopefully be revealed. The T8 Genesis models will be unveiled officially at Agritechnica in early November and deliveries to customers will commence in late spring next year. ■ The long wheelbase used by New Holland improves performance in the field and allows plenty of space to access the engine for maintenance.

Combine updates prove ideal for Kent farm Improved performance and new features of the latest Case IH Axial-Flow combines are expected to make it easier to establish and grow successful crops on a Romney Marsh farm. David Williams reports. “We regard harvest as the first cultivation of the subsequent crop,” commented Andrew Cragg who trades as Brooker Farms based at Newchurch in Kent. “Getting that first cultivation right means subsequent operations are easier, and crop establishment is more even.” Andrew farms approximately 565ha of his own crops including wheat, spring barley, oilseed rape and combine peas, and collaborates with a neighbouring farm, which means the combine can also harvest an additional area of similar crops as well as oats. All straw is chopped and most crops are established by minimum tillage although ploughing is currently preferred for peas following spring barley, due to peas’ dislike of compaction and the amount of fluffy straw on the surface. Oilseed rape is established direct into stubbles which requires a fine chop from the straw chopper. The farm was an early adopter of control traffic farming (CTF) and Andrew says this has contributed to an improved soil structure The new Axial Flow is fully compatible with Brooker Farm’s 12m CTF regime.

and reduced the need for deep cultivation. Six years ago, the farm upgraded to a 12.5m (40ft) header, for compatibility with its planned 12– 24m CTF regime from a previous 9m (30ft) model. “We wanted to make the most of opportunities offered by CTF and there were limited options for those looking for 12m machines. Several manufacturers offered the header width needed and were keen to help, but the standard unloading augers remained too short which meant corn trailers would have to travel off the tramlines,” explained Andrew. “When we asked about a longer auger at that time the response was generally negative as it was thought the additional weight would be too much for the lower pivot mounting, except for Case IH which agreed to produce us an extended version covered by the full factory warranty. So, we moved away from our previous brand, and bought our first Axial Flow combine from local dealer Ernest Doe Power.” With the wider header and the amount of straw that had to be processed by the standard straw

chopper, residue was sometimes inadequately spread resulting in blocking of cultivators and drills. Andrew discussed the issue with his dealer and Case IH, and a Europewide solution was identified in the form of a Canadian-manufactured Redekop MAV chopper which was fitted by Ernest Doe Power. The Redekop attaches to the rear of the combine behind the standard chopper. Special blades produce a powerful air blast which helps blow chopped straw and chaff out to the sides more consistently than the standard chopper. It worked well, providing the solution Andrew needed.

Power and automation With the Axial Flow 9230 five years old and due for replacement earlier this year, Andrew had no hesitation in investing in the latest 9250 Axial Flow, boasting additional power (634hp max) and extra automation to improve performance and work rates. It also had a larger 14,500-litre grain tank. The extra-long unloading auger was now available as an option on the standard price list and a Redekop MAV Xtra-chopping chopper, now factory fitted, was also selected, based on the performance of the previous unit. Additional technology on the new Axial Flow includes AFS Harvest Command automation. This uses a network of 16 sensors throughout the machine to monitor performance and, using the information generated, 7 different settings are automatically adjusted to optimise performance based on the selected harvesting strategy. Three levels of automation include a base version, which simply makes initial settings, but Andrew’s 9250 model has the top AFS Harvest Command system. This includes Feedrate Control which adjusts ground speed based on crop

load to meet a desired outcome – performance to control losses; maximum throughput, or fixed throughput. The operator selects maximum engine and travel speeds, and performance is optimised within these limits. Andrew’s new combine also has a clean grain camera which identifies broken grains and impurities for grain quality monitoring, plus sieve pressure sensors to monitor the cleaning load. These sense impending overloads, allowing the cleaning system to operate at maximum capacity, while also making adjustments when needed to prevent losses before they occur.

Machinery Operator Darren Moulding says the new combine is excellent and that the increased automation helps him get the best from the machine.

Fixed throughput – a target throughput is maintained by varying the travel speed while settings are adjusted to minimise losses. Maximum throughput – the combine operates up to the speed or power limit set by the operator while adjusting settings to minimise grain losses. Grain quality mode – settings constantly adjust to maintain targeted grain quality and impurity levels, while also minimising losses.

Auto feed-rate control Darren said automatic travel speed control is selected most of the time, as it offers advantages in variable conditions, where speed increases in response to areas of thinner crop, and reduces where crop is thicker. During previous harvests he has suffered from shoulder pain after long days using the joystick to vary travel speed, but he said this wasn’t an issue this harvest and puts this down to the automatic speed management

which reduces joystick use. “I usually set the limit at 120 per cent of rated engine power, but aim to maintain a work flow using 100– 110 per cent,” he said. “The speed control system is responsive and in patches of very thick crop, forward travel can stop abruptly while the threshing system deals with a sudden influx – but average working speed when crop flow is more even is approximately 5.5–7.0kph, which is quite comfortable with the 12.5m header. When filling a trailer alongside I always select manual speed control though, as sudden changes could cause problems for the trailer drivers.”

Optimise throughput A new feature on the latest Axial Flow is rotor vane adjustment from the cab allowing the operator, or AFS Harvest Command in automatic mode, to adjust threshing performance for the crop and conditions. Adjusting the vanes to a shallow angle means crop remains in the rotor for longer for aggressive threshing, while a steeper angle moves the crop through more quickly, allowing higher work rates. Sieve adjustment can also be adjusted manually, or automatically through AFS Harvest Command, in response to information from the loss sensors, grain camera and sieve pressure sensors. “I’m very impressed with the sample from the new combine,” commented Darren. “The previous model allowed me to set the crop type, and settings were applied automatically after which I checked the sample throughout the day and made fine adjustments, but

The factory-fitted Redekop MAV Xtra-chopping straw chopper achieves an extremely fine chop which means that even in very windy conditions when spread width is compromised, the straw doesn’t cause a problem for subsequent field operations.

this does everything itself. I had my preferred settings written down for each crop harvested by the previous Axial Flow and it’s encouraging that the new combine makes almost identical settings in automatic mode. I try to maintain the best sample possible for all crops as that reduces the work load for the grain store. The new combine achieves a better sample whether I make the settings manually, or allow the combine to make them automatically and this year the oilseed rape was the cleanest we have ever seen.”

2-speed range selection. The tracks are also improved with better suspension, and Darren said that at 30kph maximum travel speed the ride is more comfortable. The latest cab is similar to before but noticeably quieter and Darren said he believes this might be due to the new tracks with their reduced vibration and smoother ride.

Higher work rates Darren has driven combines for 16 years since being employed by Brooker Farms and at the time he joined the team, 2 combines were operated, later reducing to 1. “I like having the automation available as being able to rely on the combine to look after the settings leaves me free to concentrate on what is happening around me, especially when working in difficult conditions or at the headlands,” he explained. “The feature I like most is the automatic speed control. It lets me push the combine to full capacity when conditions are right to get as much harvested as possible without having to worry about overloading the rotor and blocking it. Even though this harvest was generally dry, during the early stages we had few really good harvesting days. Heavy dews held us up in the mornings and light rain showers forced us to stop in the afternoons, so making the most of harvesting opportunities as crops were ready was essential.”

Better chop quality The new combine’s factory-fitted Redekop straw chopper is also performing well. Andrew said similar performance to the previous retro-fit model was expected, and he wasn’t disappointed. In very windy conditions where spread width can be compromised the fine chop means that cultivator and drill performance are unlikely to be affected. The new 12.5m header has performed well this season in all crops and Darren said the optional in-cab controlled operating angle adjustment proved worthwhile, improving performance in laid barley to the extent that only two lifters at each end of the table were needed, rather than a full set. The new Axial Flow has an improved transmission with field and road modes and on-the-move

The latest tracks offer an improved ride and contribute to a quieter cab, according to Darren.

Daily maintenance requirements are minimal and Darren commented that the fuel and Adblue filling points are conveniently located.

Soils improving Since moving to CTF, soil condition has improved and fewer cultivations are needed. “We no longer feel the need to make all the fields brown,” explained Andrew. “This year we have invested in a 12m Dale Drill for crop establishment direct into stubbles where possible, and with the improved performance of the latest Redekop chopper this shouldn’t present any problems. Oilseed rape will be drilled straight into the chopped straw. A 12m Lemken Heliodor cultivator will create a light tilth for winter wheat after peas and oilseed rape, and for spring barley after winter wheat. Next year we will also trial this approach for a small area of peas. Tramlines remain largely untouched while the wider combine tracks are remedied with a special 2-legged Flat-lift. “We also have a set of 12m rolls so almost all our field operations are now 12m CTF compatible, and although our target is to minimise field work through direct drilling where possible, we will be flexible in our approach when conditions require.”

Easy decision Andrew said that as a result of the farm’s experience with the previous Axial Flow combine, including back-up from the team at Ernest Doe Power, no other combine brand was considered this time. “The Axial Flow is simple and reliable and we achieve an excellent grain sample with continued over...

Combine key to success

minimal losses. “The back-up is excellent and we have also had a visit from a delegation of US-based Case IH representatives to find out how we are getting on with the machine. They were interested in our feedback and keen to know what we need for the future.”

Andrew says a result of moving to 12m CTF is that the machinery used is large for the area farmed, but allows field operations to be carried out when conditions are optimal. “The main motivation for moving to CTF has been to improve soil condition and we have seen that during the gradual transition the land has become gradually easier to work, requiring less deep cultivation. Our new 12m drill not only fits the farm’s standard working width but it will also allow us to make the most of opportunities to use minimum cultivations where conditions allow. However, the main component of the 12m traffic regime is the combine. The new Axial Flow 9250 has an ideal header size, an unloading auger which allows trailers to remain in the tramlines and a straw chopper which chops finely and spreads effectively, which is crucial for our progression towards minimal tillage. “This is why I always regard harvesting as the first cultivation of next year’s crop.” ■ Andrew Cragg (left) with Darren Moulding.

Complete solution to digital processes Simplifying digital processes and enabling access to Isobus is the aim of a new product from Agxtend. The Isomax, which has been awarded the Silver Agritechnica Innovation Award, delivers "the complete solution, from the plug to the ECU" says the manufacturer. All hardware is certified by the Agricultural Industry Electronics Foundation, all software is open source, and the system is compatible with all brands. “In order to make Isobus the longterm standard in the agricultural sector, the system must be constantly developed and adapted. Isobus must become a system integrator in order to not become obsolete, and new combinations of Isobus platforms and connected sensor systems are an integral part of its evolution. Isomax has a key role to play,” explains Maximilian Birle, head of product management for Agxtend.

Silver Innovation Award for video system  SmartView from Grimme allows the user to select exactly what they want to see on screen.  The system allows simple connection to a mobile device.

Lincolnshire manufacturer Grimme has received the DLG Silver Innovation Award at this year’s Agritechnica for its SmartView video system. The system offers users the opportunity to decide what they want to see and has several innovative features, including a zoom and slow motion function, live image transfer on mobile devices via Wi-Fi, the choice of various window arrangements plus the largest display on the market. Using the zoom function, users can choose precisely what they want to see from the whole video image. It is also possible to show several images from the same camera on

one monitor. This enables the user to zoom into different parts of the whole video image simultaneously but independently of each other. The cameras do not need to be readjusted by hand, as the user can zoom into the relevant video as requested. For improved function control users can run every video image in slow motion, which enables them to react quickly to changing harvest conditions and, for example, change settings of the separators. SmartView also enables simple connection of a mobile device, a tablet or smart phone, using the Wi-Fi of the Grimme machine, which is available via its telemetry unit. The live image transfer

can show, for example, the separator from the picking-off table, which is not normally visible. Video images and screenshots can be recorded and stored on any USB stick to document the various operating conditions. The 12-inch touchscreen monitor can display up to 8 video images at the same time. It is possible to connect up to 24 cameras to the system. This operation is the same when connecting to a tablet or smartphone. SmartView includes Grimme’s Visual Protect function, which was awarded a DLG silver in 2007. This feature ensures that when problems occur or settings are changed in any area, the corresponding video image is automatically displayed. A new feature is that, in addition to a large display of the event on the monitor, several video images can also be displayed in a user-defined window arrangement. This means the upstream and downstream areas can be displayed simultaneously. From 2020, the SmartView system will be available as standard on the

Demonstration Day

Latest models and brands feature at Hampshire demonstration day Only a few months after celebrating the opening of its newest Billingshurst, West Sussex depot, RW Crawford enjoyed excellent attendance to an autumn cultivations demonstration. David Williams was there. The demonstration was at East Meon, near Petersfield, Hants and only a short distance from the dealer’s new Billingshurst depot. RW Crawford opened the depot to provide sales and service support to customers in the area having taken over the operating territory from previous Agco dealer AJ Seale Ltd. The new area, which includes east Hampshire, West Sussex and south Surrey is looked after by a dedicated

sales and service team with full support available from the dealer’s Kent and Essex depots. The full range of Fendt and Valtra products is offered from the new depot including Fendt Ideal combine harvesters and the dealer was also awarded the Väderstad franchise for the area with products from the range displayed at the new depot opening for the first time. The working demonstration was

the sales team’s first opportunity to show the Väderstad line-up in action including cultivators and drills.

New model debuts This was also the first opportunity for Crawford’s team to demonstrate Fendt and Valtra tractors in the field, and a highlight was the latest Fendt 942 Vario in action. The new model has up to 415hp, and a transmission design similar to the most powerful 1000 Vario-series. This uses a pump and two motors to distribute drive independently to the front and rear axles, with constant adjustment in work maximising performance and grip. A new, larger cab offering extra

comfort over previous models is standard. Also making its debut at a UK dealer event was a Valtra N-series tractor with pneumatic front axle suspension. This was launched at Lamma this year but one of the first production machines was displayed in the Hampshire field. The option is available only for the N174 currently but will also be offered for N134 and N154 models. The first dealer demonstrators arrived in late August and many orders have been taken already. Suspension on the N-series is similar to the larger T-series but the N-series has a single air bag with two shock absorbers.

Versatile tractors Huddlestone Farmers is based at Steyning, West Sussex and farm foreman Neil Stokes (left) is pictured with RW Crawford demonstrator James Strivens. Neil explained that the farm is mixed arable cropping and livestock, but its principle enterprise is a large dairy unit in which 450 Holstein cattle are milked 3 times daily. Neil’s main responsibility is looking after field tasks including grassland, fodder crop production and commercial crops for sale. “My main tractor is a Fendt 724 Vario,” he explained, “and I really like it. We have been running Fendt for 11 years and find the tractors comfortable, easy to drive, very reliable and fuel efficient. My 724 is 240hp, but extremely manoeuvrable which means that if we need to use it around our dairy buildings it’s not a problem.” Neil said the farm also has a Fendt 820 which has worked more than 10,000 hours, mostly powering a feeder/mixer wagon on which it clocks up approximately 1,200 hours a year. A 720 Vario is also operated which has recorded 7,000 hours to date and the farming business includes a farm further north in the Borders which runs a second Fendt 724 on the mainly arable enterprise. Neil’s 724 has RangePoint RTX GPS guidance which he says is accurate and reliable. “It’s proving so accurate that we now leave the tramlines permanently in place for spraying, fertiliser spreading and slurry application,” he explained. “It reduces the need for subsoiling and the money saved more than pays for the GPS guidance. The Horsch 36m sprayer has section control operated through the tractor terminal by Isobus link and we also run GeoSpread for our Kverneland sprayer using it too. We recently moved to a strip-till drill and that is also Isobuscompatible.”

Neil said the back up from RW Crawford’s team is proving good since it took over the area from the previous dealer. “We have had two or three breakdowns since RW Crawford took over and the service was excellent each time. Luke Smallbone in the parts department seems very knowledgable and fitter Luke Morley has been out to us several times including over the Easter weekend when we had a breakdown during drilling and he had us working again four hours later. With the new depot open at Billingshurst it’s a very convenient location for us and we are pleased with the service to date.”

Growing workload For 58 years Agricultural Contracting Services (ACS) has operated from Midhurst, Sussex and services offered include a full range of agricultural contracting activities, explained manager Tristan Parks who was at the event with colleagues. “We ran Valtras approximately 10 years ago, but later they were replaced by another brand and we have come to find out about the latest models as well as to meet the new dealer team,” he explained. Three brands of tractor are operated currently which are a mix of owned and some hired in during busy periods. The business operates from a farm at Cowdray Estate where a dairy herd is milked by 2 robots and cropping includes 100ha of potatoes, grass, maize and cereals along with lupins and soya for the dairy. As well as growing its own crops on rented land on the estate, the business also carries out work including forage harvesting and baling for Cowdray Estate’s farm, which is run by Velcourt. There are 10 full-time staff and 5 additional casual workers are brought in for the busy summer period. Contracting services include arable and grassland tasks, forage harvesting and the company also specialises in amenity and polo ground maintenance. “We buy tractors with a 3,000-hour warranty, but as the workload has increased most of our tractors clock up the total within 2 years,” Tristan added. The firm also supplies hay and haylage delivered by 2 lorries, mainly to equine businesses in the region. Pictured with one of the Valtra tractors are (l-r) RW Crawford demonstrator James Strivens, Tristan Parks, Steve Tebbs, Darren Parks and RW Crawford area sales manager, James Childs.

Members of the RW Crawford Fendt team were kept busy all day at the event. With the new 942 Vario are (l-r) technician Mark Holroyd, Billingshurst depot administrator Michelle Stokes, product demonstrator James Strivens, Fendt brand manager Carl Goff, group sales manager Nunzio Rio, area sales managers James Childs and Philip Cole and product demonstrator Dean Chaplin.

Capable drill

Brian Power is employed by Steyning, West Sussex-based contractor Simon Kilham as a machinery operator and he was at the demonstration day to find out about the Vädertstad range of cultivators and drills. The contracting business provides a service to farmers within a 25-mile radius of its base and specialises in muck spreading, spraying, cultivations, drilling, hedge cutting and combine harvesting. “The only crop we don’t tend to get involved with is maize,” explained Simon. “We run a Valtra N174 Versu which was the first supplied by RW Crawford’s new Billingshurst depot. We get on well with it – it’s comfortable and economical and most of its work so far has been ploughing, cultivating and straw bale haulage. The service from our new dealer is very good, so we are keen to find out about Väderstad products now Crawfords is offering these too. “We don’t run any Väderstad equipment currently but with a good dealer nearby it’s certainly worth looking at and our main interest is in a new drill. We work frequently on heavy clay soils but we also have lighter sand and need something capable of handling both. At the moment, we use a power harrow drill combination behind a tractor with a front-mounted cultivator to create a seedbed, and are looking for an alternative.” Pictured (l-r) with a Väderstad cultivator are James Strivens, Brian Power and Väderstad marketing manager Andy More over page...

Sweetcorn stubble to chop

Another contractor at the event was Woodmancote Agricultural Contractors, and partners Nick Smith and his father Steve Smith are pictured with the new Fendt 942 Vario. The contracting business is based close to the West Sussex and Hampshire border and all arable work is undertaken from planting to harvest. Some of the main activities include maize, grass and wholecrop forage harvesting, as well as hay and straw baling. Wood chip for biomass is also a speciality and a 500hp Fendt 1050 Vario powers the wood-chipper. A mixed fleet of 11 tractors is used for contracting as well as the family’s arable farm, including 4 Fendts – the 1050, an 828 and two 724s – all supplied by the previous local main dealer. “Resale value is important to us, as is reliability and the Fendt brand is excellent,” explained Nick. “They are comfortable too and most of our operators far prefer the Fendts to our other tractors. We have dealt with RW Crawford a few times since the new Billingshurst depot opened and have found the back-up very good, but even before it opened, when the service team had to operate from the Ashford depot in Kent, we found the service excellent."

Neil Cairns was at the demonstration to find out about Väderstad cultivators capable of chopping long stubble. Neil is head of crop production for Barfoot Farms, based near Chichester, Sussex which farms approximately 2,900ha of predominantly vegetable crops between Southampton and Chichester. Most of the farmed land is rented and crops include wheat, winter rye, sweetcorn, asparagus, courgettes and tenderstem broccoli, with most of the vegetables grown for supermarkets. Currently two Väderstad TopDown cultivators are operated to break down the land in the autumn and spring before drilling. Each also has a seeding unit used mainly to establish cover crops. “With its new Billingshurst depot, RW Crawford is well located for us,” commented Neil. “We have only recently started dealing with the team and my main reason for coming today was to try to find a cultivator capable of chopping large areas of sweetcorn stubble quickly and cheaply. We run 3 sweetcorn cob harvesters which leave stubble 25–30cm high, then use 4 rotary toppers which are fuel and labour intensive. Väderstad’s CrossCutter mounted on the front of a wide Carrier cultivator would be ideal with a fast working speed for the high work rates needed, and being easy to pull it could save a lot of fuel. “It would make sense for us to deal with RW Crawford for tractors too in future,” he added. Neil is pictured (right) with Väderstad territory manager Simon Griffiths.

Demonstration Day

Tractors impress at Cambridgeshire dealer demo An autumn demonstration day by Cambridgeshire-based McCormick main dealer – Downing Agricultural Engineers, was well supported by farmers from across its trading area. David Williams reports. Mixed weather repeatedly threatened to put a stop to field operations on the heavy soils that surround the Gorefield, Cambs depot but ground conditions remained just dry enough, providing a great opportunity for interested farmers from across the region to try out the latest McCormick models and Ovlac cultivation implements. Great customer service is seen as the priority for Andrew Downing and all his staff, and the working day was attended by farmers and contractors keen to show their support for the popular dealer. Along with McCormick, other key brands represented included Ovlac, NC Trailers, Pegoraro power harrows and Morra Machinery. New to the dealer and displayed

for the first time were Kioti tractors and utility vehicles and a Faresin telescopic handler was also on show; for which Andrew was keen to obtain expressions of interest from potential users. The dealer’s new showroom and parts store was busy throughout the day as customers took advantage of special offers available on Draper, Bepco, Ring Lighting and Fuchs products. “The day proved very succesful and we enjoyed excellent support from all our main suppliers as well as a great many customers,” confirmed Andrew. “Thank you to all those who helped make it such a success, including local farmers JH Waling & Son who kindly allowed us to use their land for the demonstration.”

Attractive offering A new franchise announced at the demonstration day was Kioti. Kioti UK southern area sales manager Dan White is pictured (left) with Andrew Downing and Kioti products at the event. “Andrew has had the franchise for just a few weeks and has already retailed a CK4DIDHST to a local nursey. He has also committed to holding stock of the most popular models,” explained Dan. “He has invested in demonstration machines too. Our range starts at 21hp, including models with hydrostatic transmission which is a feature his customers have been requesting for some time.” Andrew confirmed that demand for compact tractors for fruit and vegetable producers, and with mid-mount and rear mowers for local authority and amenity use was a major factor in taking on the franchise. “We know the products, build quality is excellent and the four-year standard factory warranty on the tractors appeals to customers,” he confirmed.

The NC Trailer franchise was taken on three years ago and Andrew Downing (pictured left) with NC Trailers southern area sales manager Neil Palmer said that the company’s range of grain trailers has proved particularly popular with a distinctive ‘barrel’ profile offering maximum capacity within the overall dimensions. “We expect growing demand for the slurry tankers too due to the increasing number of AD plants in this area and can rely on the manufacturer to supply trailers of bespoke specification quickly when needed,” stated Andrew.“ We give quality back-up and want to supply machinery that suits the way we do business. NC Trailers is a key part of that.”

Performance and quality Trading as DW Gent, William Gent (left) and his father Robert farm 660ha which is a mix of owned and contract-farmed land. The family farm has been owned by the Gents for 4 generations and is near to Andrew’s depot. Cropping is all arable including wheat, oilseed rape and beans and Robert said he has dealt with Andrew since he first set up in business in the early 1990s. “We use the dealer mainly for service, plus parts and sundries and it’s very handy having it nearby. “We hired a tractor from Andrew this year to use for grain carting and thought the McCormick was very good. We have been loyal to one brand of tractor for many years, but believe it’s important to look at other options and we trialled the new McCormick X8 to try on a power-harrow and a subsoiler.Its performance surprised us – it had great pulling ability for draft work and there was plenty of power for PTO tasks. Having a dealer in our village helps too, and we might consider buying an X8 in the future.” William was the main user. “It was comfortable, it pulled well and even though I am used to our current fleet of just one brand it took little time to get used to the McCormick’s controls. The finish was good too, and much better than some other premium brands More over page... we have tried in recent years.”

Demonstration Day Lincolnshire farming business

Precision farming Topcon precision farming products were displayed by UK distributor LH Agro. Entry- and advanced-level systems are proving equally popular, explained LH Agro sales and support engineer James Donger, adding that users tend to either opt for base Egnos GPS signal correction to within 30cm, which is free, or full RTK accuracy down to 1cm through subscription services. “We are seeing growing demand for GPS guidance from McCormick users, and have several customers with fleets all equipped with Topcon hardware,” he said. Pictured (l-r) LH Agro precision farming specialist Jack Harris, James Donger and McCormick precision farming specialist Luke Barnard.

The Faresin telescopic handler was displayed so that Andrew and his team could gauge customer reaction to the brand. Andrew is pictured trying out the cab, while Faresin export sales manager Nicolae Manea explained features and benefits.

Holbeach, Lincolnshire-based Bowd Farming Company has been dealing with Andrew Downing for approximately 10 years and members of the Bowd family were at the event. The all-arable enterprise includes combinable crops, potatoes and root crops and runs 3 main tractors as well as some older machines, but recently had a demonstration of a McCormick X7.690. “We don’t run any McCormick tractors yet, but were impressed with the demonstration model. Until recently the brand was seen as quite basic but the technology and finish has improved and the cab was especially comfortable,” commented Dean Bowd. “It did everything we require and, as a result of our experience with it, when we next update the tractors McCormick will be considered along with other brands. Andrew Downing and his family are always good to deal with and as a family firm ourselves we like supporting other family businesses. There would be no worries regarding the back up available.” Pictured (l-r) are Dean Bowd, James Bowd who is employed on a local farm, and Peter Bowd.

Great tractors

Pictured trying out the McCormick X8.680 is Henry Stanford from Hingham, Dereham, Norfolk. Trading as ELJ Stanford & Son the family’s arable farm operates a McCormick X7-660 as well as an older McCormick MC135 and a Case tractor. The latest X7 was supplied by Andrew Downing. “We use it for draft work – mainly ploughing and subsoiling,” explained Henry. “It’s well put together, the price was competitive and the new tractor has many improvements over the XTX165 it replaced. The horsepower rating is similar, but the new tractor is far more capable in the field and the cab is good – with a great quality finish. “I enjoyed the opportunity to try the larger X8 – and found the cab design and controls immediately familiar. Andrew’s team gives great after-sales service,” he added. Pictured with Henry is Joe Brooks.

Based at Tilney All Saints, Emorsgate Seeds grows and supplies varieties of English wild flower and wild grass seeds. The farm consists of a 56ha holding rented from Norfolk County Council, but demand for the company’s seeds has resulted in 180ha of additional rented land at Marshland St James being taken on. “It’s heavier land and we are looking for larger machinery to cope with the additional area,” explained production manager Carl Cockle. “As well as scaling up we have also invested in GPS guidance and are finding out how to get the best from it this season. We bought a McCormick X6.440 from Andrew Downing last year plus a Pegoraro 4m power-harrow which is excellent and suits the tractor well. “We looked at other power-harrows but the Pegoraro’s price and build-quality was attractive. We have dealt with Andrew for approximately 7 years and he maintains our trial plot combines. We particularly like their attitude to helping customers and even though a lot of our machinery isn’t brands which they supply it doesn’t affect their willingness to service and repair it or just give advice. Nothing is ever too much trouble and because when we are harvesting seeds, timing is critical, it’s reassuring knowing that there is always help available.” The main McCormick user is Marc Bullock, who says the tractor is proving excellent. “I use it mainly for ploughing and with the powerharrow. The visibility is good, I like the power-shuttle and the cab is very comfortable. The fridge proved useful during the hot weather in recent months too! “The McCormick replaced a tractor of similar power of another brand and this is far more comfortable. The power-shuttle saves time during headland turns and the suspended front axle gives a really good ride on the road. It’s got a 50kph transmission too which saves time when travelling between work sites,” he added. Pictured at the event are (l-r) Charles Downing, Marc Bullock, Carl Cockle and Joe Brooks.

Tractor showcase includes updated models

 Argo Tractors will be showcasing its McCormick range, including the X6.55.  The McCormick X7.624 VT-Drive will be competing for the title of Tractor of the Year at Agritechnica.

Italian manufacturer Argo Tractors will reveal its latest innovations at this month’s Agritechnica event in Hanover. The McCormick X7.624 VT-Drive Stage 5 will be among competitors in the Tractor of the Year 2020 competition. With an increase in engine power to 240hp, the latest VT-Drive model represents the highest performance of the series. For 5 models in the X7.6 series, this means a transition to the new Stage 5 emission step – the new standard for off-road engines sold in the European Union. The X7.624 is equipped with a 6-cylinder, 24-valve 6.7-litre Beta Power Fuel Efficiency engine. This delivers a maximum torque of 983Nm at 1,400rpm with the Power Plus system that guarantees maximum power and performance combined with fuel savings, lower tractor wear and a generous 36 per cent torque reserve. The machine is packed with features and systems to reduce engine emissions and pollutants,

reduce engine oil waste and cut maintenance times and costs. The engine brake system is also used to improve transport efficiency. The combination of a highperformance engine and the 4-stage continuously variable VT-Drive transmission, with 4 sets of crown wheels with oil-cooled clutches, provides excellent reactive capacity, making the work particularly easy, says Argo. The VT-Drive transmission has 4 speed ranges, from a minimum of 0.04kph to a maximum of 50kph, facilitating productivity. The 4-speed PTO and rear axle with reinforced final drives allow full power to be expressed, with a modular drive and automatically adjustable setup. Compared to Stage 4 emission levels, the VT-Drive transmission maintains the supporting frame with its characteristic cast iron structure and independent front suspension. This guarantees lower vibration levels, greater power and improved front wheel traction, with maximum manoeuvrability for greater safety and driving comfort. The focus

on facilitating the operator’s work is maintained and evident in the design of the semi-active suspension cab, which has been designed for maximum comfort and space. The new configuration of the control unit, governed by the Data Screen Management, allows the driver to store five functions for greater customisation of the tractor controls. Also new is a system that allows operators to adjust the tilting movement of the steering wheel electrically, using a simple switch and a lever to adjust the height. The McCormick X7.624 is also compatible with satellite guidance and the Isobus system that connects the tractor, implements and onboard computer. With Isobus, the operator can manage all implements using a single touchscreen monitor without having to use additional control units in the cabin. The advanced McCormick Fleet Management system also makes it possible to manage a fleet of tractors by providing geofencing information that delivers data on the worked

area, telemetry and geopositioning. The main new aesthetic features of the McCormick X7.624 VT-Drive are the new bonnet design in line with the McCormick X8 family styling and the new roof design, with 12 working lights that have been repositioned to give the operator greater all-round visibility – even during night-time operations. Meanwhile the McCormick X7.6 P6-Drive has also undergone a redesign. The revamped machine has several new features designed to enhance comfort and performance. The 6.7-litre 24-valve engine is a Stage 5. The X7.6 P6-Drive comes with 2 equipment versions. The Premium version features the CCLS closed-centre hydraulic system with up to 160-litre per minute and a maximum of 8 electro-hydraulic spool valves and a 3-way flow diverter capable of managing 3 hydraulic movements using a single spool valve, a 12-inch DSM touchscreen monitor capable of supporting a rear/front camera, and Advanced HMF management for optimal control of headland operations. The Efficient package offers basically the same engine and transmission configuration as the Premium version, however with a basic 88-litre per minute open-centre hydraulic system. Visitors to the show will also be able to find out about the McCormick X8 VT-Drive and McCormick X6.4, X6.55 and X5, which Argo describes as “the ideal tractor in the medium utility segment”. ■

‘Love Your Soil’ campaign launches Claydon, the UK-based manufacturer of the Opti-Till Crop Establishment System, will use Agritechnica 2019 to launch its new ‘Love Your Soil’ campaign, together with the company’s new 6m Hybrid T6c trailed direct strip seeding drill and 8m TerraBlade inter-row hoe. ‘Love Your Soil’ The ‘Love Your Soil’ campaign will highlight the need for farmers to better care for their soils and how the Claydon Opti-Till System can help to achieve this. A holistic approach to crop establishment, Opti-Till delivers consistently good, high-yielding, profitable crops at a low cost; uses far less fuel; improves soil condition and reduces erosion, says the company. The environmental benefits of Opti-Till will be reflected in the environmentally friendly approach adopted on the company’s stand. Instead of handing out printed brochures in plastic carrier bags, Claydon will use stylish recyclable paper and cotton bags in its well-known yellow-and-black livery, with the option of QR code cards, which allow visitors to download specific information directly from the company’s website. Export manager Simon Revell said: “The Claydon family’s 400ha arable farm in the East of England is one of very few in the UK to achieve a 5-star rating for the condition and health of its soils. As a company we know about soils and how to get the best from them in the most eco-friendly, sustainable way, and will be highlighting that to visitors.” He added: “Soils are any farmer’s greatest

asset and yet many are unwittingly destroying their structure and productivity through the incorrect use of conventional full cultivations and min-till techniques. These can over-work the soil, depleting soil biota, greatly reducing worm populations and activity, together with its ability to drain water away in wet weather and retain moisture in dry weather.

“Starving the crop’s roots of essential air and nutrients also reduces yield potential and increases the cost-per-tonne of production, while increasing the risks of flooding and soil erosion. Similarly, the use of min-till systems and disc-type direct drills can result in soils which drain poorly and flood easily, creating crops with poor rooting structures and low yield potential. “This situation must change, which is why we will be highlighting how the Opti-Till System can help farmers to grow better crops, more efficiently, using just 10 per cent of the fuel of a plough-based system, while greatly improving soil health.” continued over...

Claydon Hybrid T6c The new 6m Hybrid T6c compact trailed drill, the latest addition to the Claydon range, will appeal to farmers who require a highly versatile and manoeuvrable 6m trailed drill. Over 20 per cent lighter and more compact than Claydon’s Hybrid T6 model, the T6c combines the high output of a 6m seeding platform, with the nimble handling characteristics and manoeuvrability of the 4m T4 trailed design on which it is based. Capable of drilling typically 45ha per day behind a 300hp (223kW) tractor, it is designed to appeal to farmers who prioritise lower cost and greater manoeuvrability over ultimate hopper capacity and output. Carried on the lower link arms, the T6c features a fully floating seeding chassis which follows field

contours exactly, ensuring accurate seeding depth under all conditions. It does this regardless of the weight in the hopper, which is carried on a separate frame supported on centrally mounted depth wheels that run on clean, dry, uncultivated ground to avoid capping and compaction. Providing a hopper capacity of 3,500 litres, double that of Claydon’s 6m mounted drill, the T6c weighs approximately 7,900kg unladen, compared with 9,000kg for the T6. The hopper can be used for seed only or divided 60:40 between seed and fertiliser for combination drilling, a technique which gets crops off to a fast start and is popular with farmers and contractors throughout Europe and Scandinavia. The T6c uses 38mm-diameter pipes to transport seed and fertiliser from the hopper to the tines. Versatile, flexible, simple, strong, easy to use and with low operating costs, the T6c will sow

directly into stubble, in min-till situations or on ploughed/cultivated land, across the widest range of soils, conditions and crops. This enables one drill to handle any crop establishment situation and minimises capital investment. The 19 individually adjustable tungsten carbide leading tines reduce compaction and aerate the soil. They also optimise drainage, form tilth for the seeding zone and create a uniform seeding depth. The following seeding tines create additional tilth and place the seed at the ideal depth, above the drainage channel. This highly effective system encourages very deep, complex rooting structures to develop quickly, which minimises soil erosion and produces stronger, healthier crops with optimum yield potential. The new drill can be adapted to whatever the customer requires to suit different crops and conditions. They can have the standard tine set-up with a variety of coulter and seeding boot options, and fertiliser can be placed down the front or rear tine. Shouldered front cutting discs come as standard but press wheels can be specified. At the rear, the double toolbar can be equipped with a range of press wheel, board and harrow configurations to fully cover the seed and leave the soil smooth and level. Providing unparalleled versatility, the T6c folds to 2.97m for transport and is equipped with a wide range of standard features, including single-point depth control, a stainless-steel metering system

The specification also includes a hydraulically-driven fan, Claydon-designed distribution heads for improved flow and seeding accuracy, together with a tramline kit and hopper cover. Options include a vision kit which incorporates work lights and cameras so that the operator can monitor the drill from the tractor cab, GPS variablerate seeding, blockage sensors, pre-emergence markers and brakes.

8m Claydon TerraBlade

The unit will give years of reliable service, has very low operating costs and offers great flexibility. It is designed for use on any tractor with a Cat II front linkage, travels at speeds of approximately 6kph and operates up to 30mm deep. It is manually steered and can be used whenever soil conditions allow, covering up to 4ha per hour with an 8m unit. On farms that drill early, crops may be sufficiently well developed in the autumn to start using it then and the operation can continue in the spring whenever soil conditions allow, up to the stage where the crop might be compromised by further passes. ■

The new 8m Claydon TerraBlade inter-row hoe is the largest model in the company’s range. Equipped with 26 blades, it joins 4 other TerraBlade models – the 3.0m M3, 4.0m M4, 4.8m M4.8 and 6.0m M6 – which have 10, 14, 16 and 20 blades respectively. The TerraBlade is a low-cost, mechanical method of controlling weeds in combinable, bandsown crops. It provides an additional weapon in the agricultural industry’s weed control armoury at a time when the efficacy of some herbicides is decreasing, while the cost of control is increasing. Band sowing at 30cm leaves a 14–15cm-wide unseeded strip between the rows which can be mechanically hoed. Designed for use in all types of strip seeded crops, the TerraBlade eliminates weeds from that A crop of wheat that has been hoed with the TerraBlade inter-row hoe.

area reliably, safely and without using chemicals. This clears up any weeds that were missed by ag-chems, or where such products cannot be used, greatly reducing the return of weed seeds and the overall weed burden. By keeping the unseeded rows clear of weeds during the early stages of crop growth, competition for nutrients, light, air and water is reduced and the young plants can grow away strong and healthy. TerraBlade has the potential to improve crop yields, drastically lower the potential for carry-over of weed seeds and reduce the risk of more resistant types developing.

Power boost for combine range New Holland has increased power across the CR Revelation range.

Increased power and a host of other improvements have been promised by New Holland as it reveals a series of upgrades to its CR Revelation, CX7 and CX8 combine ranges. More than 100 quality improvements have been made to the CR Revelation combine range in the past 24 months, as well as the addition of the company’s IntelliSense automation system. Following the power upgrade on the CR10.90 and the CR8.80, New Holland is continuing with increases across the rest of the range. At the low end of the range, the CR7.80 and CR7.90 have been uprated by 14hp and 11hp respectively. The CR8.90 now runs a Cursor 13 engine that delivers 544hp, which is 27hp more than previously, while the CR9.80 and CR9.90 benefit from an additional 29hp, reaching 600hp. The CR8.80 and CR10.90 maintain their powerful performance with maximum power of 517hp and 700hp respectively. Continuous improvement to the CR Revelation range has resulted in an increase in its harvesting productivity of up to 25 per cent in the past 5 years, according to New Holland. The harvest window of the CR can

be extended, starting earlier and finishing later in the night. The threshing efficiency of the 17-inch rotor on the CR7.80, CR7.90 and CR8.80 models has been improved with new 20mm higher crop covers and increased beater speed. It also features an adjustable beater grate, which can be opened and closed in minutes. It has been opened further to provide 0.26m2 additional separation surface (a 75 per cent increase), resulting in greater productivity. These improvements deliver a 10 per cent increase in these models’ capacity. The heavy-duty, high-capacity 22-inch rotor on the 4 models at the top of the range also benefit from the increase in beater speed, which contributes to further improving the combine’s productivity and a 5 per cent capacity increase. The new high-capacity grain elevator on the 14,500-litre grain tank of the CR9.90 and CR10.90 increases the combine’s grain transport volume by 10 per cent. This enables higher harvesting speeds in high yielding crops, boosting further the efficiency and productivity of these models. The CR Revelation range complies

with Stage 5 emissions standards with ECOBlue HI-eSCR 2 technology, which maintains the fuel efficiency of the previous models. Combined with the long, 600hr service intervals, this contributes to the low operating costs of the combine. The cab interior of the CR Revelation has been refreshed with a new, darker colour scheme including brushed aluminium finish to the dashboard. Meanwhile, improvements to the CX7 and CX8 combine range promise improved productivity. The new staggered drum improves threshing performance and increases the capacity. New controls enable the operator to manage the rotary separator and sieve opening, as well as chop or swath selection from the cab. Several other new features further enhance the combine’s productivity. The colour of the grain tank has changed to yellow to improve visibility from the cab, making it easier for the operator to check grain quality. The Harvest Suite Ultra cab now combines comfort and ergonomics with a new automotiveinspired interior featuring a modern dark grey colour scheme. The CX7 and CX8 range features New Holland’s 4-drum threshing system with a 750mm drum diameter, which threshes gently and thoroughly, preserving high straw quality. New Holland is now enhancing this range’s threshing performance further with the new, optional staggered drum, which features offset rasp bars on the sectional drum. They are suitable for all small grains and can be configured for maize. The staggered drum design achieves a smoother crop flow that results in lower in-cab noise and reduces blockages. It uses 16 per cent less total threshing power, reducing fuel consumption. This new feature

increases the combine’s capacity, by as much as 10 per cent. New Holland also offers a new lowspeed drum kit for those operations where grain quality is paramount. This feature enables the operator to reduce the drum speed for an even lower instance of cracked grain. New Holland has added in-cab controls for more features, improving the operator’s productivity. The sieve and pre-sieve are now remotely adjustable from the cab. The distance between the rotary separator and the concave of the Multi-Thresh system can now also be controlled remotely. The pivoting spout is controlled via the CommandGrip multifunction handle, which enables the operator to direct the crop with precision to achieve uniform trailer filling. Other productivity-enhancing improvements include the header height control with pressure sensor input on the AutoFloat III to ensure even better ground following in uneven terrain. The CX7 and CX8 feature a new patented air-based distribution system for the twin-disc chaff spreader, which spreads the chaff across the full width of the header. The operator can control the speed of the spreader from the cab in response to crop or weather conditions, and switch between chopping and swathing at the touch of a button. New Holland is also including its ECOBlue HI-eSCR 2 technology on the CX7 and CX8 range to comply with Stage 5. This reduces emissions while maintaining the fuel efficiency of the previous models. The maintenancefree HI-eSCR2 after-treatment system developed by FPT Industrial minimises operating costs and offers the added advantages of a compact size, lack of EGR and simple layout. ■

Converting existing technology into smart machines So far, the possibility of utilising data from existing mechanical implements and feeding them into farm management systems has remained wishful thinking for most farmers. Also, the technology available on the market is often too expensive or too complex, according to agrovision company Lemken, which has developed iQblue connect, a highly versatile retrofitting kit that converts existing technology into smart machines for modern farming processes. When combined with Tractor Implement Management (TIM), the device allows numerous functions of purely mechanical implements to be automated and, at the same time, integrated into digital documentation. TIM means that the tractor performs work functions that are triggered by the implement. Operators merely need a single iQblue connect module, which can be used with a range of implements. The module is connected to the tractor through its Isobus interface. It also features GPS and a mobile data connection for communication – for example with

the farm management system. Data is transmitted via the agrirouter, a cross-manufacturer platform for exchanging data between machines, farmers, contractors and software applications. Depending on the intended use, a sensor kit is permanently installed on the implement to record the required information and pass it on to the iQblue connect module. No further equipment is needed on the implement, as the tractor is used for controlling implement functions. With the first available version of the application, a plough is fitted with a sensor to determine the current working width. iQblue connect calculates the target working width from the GPS position and transmits this information to the tractor to initiate the relevant adjustment of the working width ram. The working width is adjusted via the tractor’s hydraulic system. With semimounted cultivators, the working depth can be detected by a sensor. iQblue connect receives the width

section-specific target working depth from maps provided by the agrirouter, compares the actual and target data and subsequently sends a command to the tractor to adjust the working depth. Additional applications for a range of different implements are being planned. Farmers only need a single iQblue connect module, as this mobile unit can be transferred quickly and easily from one

implement to another, without requiring special tools. The system automatically adapts to the implement it is connected to at any given time. Lemken therefore offers a straightforward, inexpensive electronic tool which allows purely mechanical implements to be largely automated. The iQblue connect system enables customers to ‘grow’ with it, as new functions can be installed later at any time. ■

Three new offerings promise to provide farmers and contractors with high performance tools for efficient and low-emission spreading and distributing of liquid manure. Managing director Harald Vogelsang said the new developments "enable users to spread liquid manure economically and in compliance with the requirements of the fertilisation ordinance."

Trailing shoe linkage The BlackBird trailing shoe linkage features a flow-optimised liquid manure outlet, which deposits liquid manure more precisely than ever before, the company says. The long, beak-like shape helps to ensure a controlled, even flow of liquid manure through each applicator. This prevents the crops being contaminated during manure spreading. The pointed skid splits the crops more effectively and is better able to penetrate the soil. This deposits 62212

the liquid manure in a narrow furrow directly under the crops. The BlackBird has been available since June 2019 in working widths of 12 and 15m. At Agritechnica, Vogelsang will present a prototype with a working width of 24m.

15m Blackbird trailing shoe.

Precision distributor The enhanced ExaCut ECQ precision distributor ensures a more even distribution of liquid manure, Vogelsang explains. It is already built into the BlackBird trailing shoe linkage and will be available for other applications after Agritechnica. Large diameters and flow distribution plates keep the flow under control and ensure a high distribution accuracy of the liquid manure. The large maintenance port allows easy access to all internal parts, reducing down time. Thanks to the QuickService concept, maintenance can be completed in just a few minutes. The new rotor design and lower speeds result in a reduction of up to 50 per cent in the power requirement. This also protects the cutting blades, extending the service life by up to 50 per cent.

Gearless rotary lobe pumps Vogelsang will also present the VX186GL gearless rotary lobe pump, which is the first in the agricultural sector with no synchroniser gearbox, which, according to Vogelsang, makes it run exceptionally smoothly. This is due to the four-wing lobes, which are designed to work in conjunction with the two parallel connected hydraulic motors to deliver constant torque on both pump shafts. When used in today’s standard 30m3 tank sizes, the gearless pump in the VX Series offers a weight saving of around 100–150kg, up to 55 per cent. This allows the transport capacity of the vehicle to be

increased, or the vehicle to be driven with reduced ground pressure. The compact construction of the rotary lobe pump makes installation on the vehicle easier and is easy to maintain, the company adds. The lobes are lighter and can also be installed individually, as no fitting keys are required. There is no need for a gear oil change. As a result, the rotary lobe pump promises to be low maintenance, causing less wear to the lobes, due to the lower shaft deflection. Vogelsang are exhibiting at Agritechnica (10-16th November, Hanover), in Hall 23, Booth B35. ■

The ‘next generation’ alternative to pressure washing A recent open day at Sheffield-based SPA Power Machinery showcased the next generation of chemicalfree machinery, offering a modern alternative to pressure washing. With councils and housing associations imposing bans on chemical usage and looking for environmentally friendly solutions where possible, the time for using chemicals and gallons of water to clean hard surfaces is gone, SPA says. Conversations at the open day centred on this point, with the company emphasising that its chemical-free machinery is key for businesses that are looking to excel into the next decade. SPA says the buzz in and around the showroom was “exciting”, with visitors joining in with demonstrations and networking amongst themselves. The company said it had not anticipated the value of the natural networking that developed amongst the visitors. The open plan design between the warehouse presentation and showroom proved to be a huge success, according to the company.

Demonstrations were carried out on a range of machinery, including the Westermann Weed Ripper, Westermann Moss Brush and Cubb Weed Brush. Visitors were then able to make their way back to the showroom to talk about how the machines could upgrade their business. At times, there may be apprehension towards new machines entering the industry, but the need for a machine such as the Westermann has existed for some time, SPA notes, adding that other manufacturers have attempted to create a ‘one-size-fits-all machine’ at a suitable price point. However, the company says no two jobs are the same, with the list of variables including uneven surfaces, thick weeds, moss, delicate stone, tight corners and kerb edges, narrow pathways and steep inclines. SPA says Westermann understands the issues at hand and creates machines designed for a variety of job requirements, each with a unique solution. The Westermann Weed Ripper, for example, will rip thick overgrown weeds out of the surface

in one pass. Typically, this is an area that hasn’t been treated for years. Meanwhile the Westermann Moss Brush will remove moss and brighten up hard surfaces. SPA director Laurie Anthony said: “The instant feedback we received was wonderful, with people genuinely delighted with not just the products and service but also the day in general. A hot cup of tea and slice of cake is one thing, successful

demonstrations are another. But the chance to interact and engage with fellow professionals is invaluable. “I’d also like to say a huge thank you to all of our staff on the day as well as Wayne Jenner from Verdego who voluntarily answered questions throughout the entire morning on how he uses the Westermann range to generate business.” Plans are in place to host another open day in 2020. ■

Agritechnica launch for innovative new machinery Väderstad has announced the launch of three new systems, showcased for the first time at Agritechnica. Maximising yield potential The innovative Tempo WideLining system promises to maximise yield potential. It is the world’s first tramlining system which enables farmers to spread liquid manure in a standing silage maize crop, without compromising yield potential. Instead of shutting off row units to create tramlines, WideLining automatically changes the planter row spacing hydraulically to create two 1,050mm tyre tracks, thereby ensuring all row units plant at full capacity. The row spacing between the tyre tracks will go from 750–600mm.

WideLining is fully automatic and integrated in the iPad-based control system, Väderstad E-Control. When the function is activated, the machine will calculate the field and automatically adjust the row units to create tramlines based on the working width of the liquid manure spreader. How WideLining works in practice, for example, is establishing silage maize with an 8-row planter and using a liquid manure spreader with 18m working width, the drill should plant 8.3 per cent more seeds in the field compared to alternative technology available on the market. The technology will be available on Tempo V 6-12 from the second half of 2020.

A performance standard The company is also launching the NZ Extreme 1250-1425 heavy duty tine harrow. The 12.50-14.25m

machine sets a new standard for field performance when it comes to seedbed preparation, says the manufacturer. The NZ Extreme’s innovative high-quality design brings capacity and agronomic benefits. Design focus has been largely on the tines of the new heavy-duty harrow. An intense vibrating tine action combined with extreme stiffness and durability is capable of crushing clods, while maintaining an exact depth and completely level field. To ensure precise field contour following and to be able to adapt to the field surface and maintain depth, the NZ Extreme is built from a five section frame. This is enhanced by an innovative weight transfer, ingenious wheel setup and heavy machine design. A limited number of NZ Extreme machines will be available in selected markets in 2020, with production starting in 2021.

Central-fill Tempo drill A new central-fill function is an option for the high speed Tempo L planter to increase capacity of

Tempo L 16.

this world-record holding drill. It will be on show for the first time at Agritechnica 2019, with 12–24 row unit versions (Tempo L 12, Tempo L 16, Tempo L 18 and Tempo L 24) available on the market in early 2021. Central filling means that instead of loading seed into each of the row units, the operator will only have to fill one large central 3,000-litre seed hopper. The Tempo L drill will then take care of seed distribution to each row unit. The central-fill feature works as a pressurised system, constantly feeding the seed meters, at which point the patented PowerShoot technology ensures excellent establishment, the company says. ■

Anti-freeze and coolants prices set to rise Maintaining your machinery’s cooling system is important to all year-round performance, but extra care must be taken during the winter months. Anti-freeze and coolants keep engines cool in the summer and offer frost protection in the winter, without which the system could freeze and cause engine damage that is impossible to repair. Therefore, it is vital to use a quality product, according to lubricant specialists the Witham Group. As winter looms, anti-freeze and coolants prices are set to rise considerably due to some unique market influences. For example, there is likely to be an increase in demand from China following US trade talks, which will create a tightening of supply across Europe. It is expected that Brexit will continue to have an adverse effect on the strength of the pound. Brexit could trigger not only finished material price increases due to currency changes, but also a possible delay in bringing tankers from the EU into the UK. While the weather is an unknown factor, extreme cold spells as we head into winter would lead to increases in demand – inevitably putting pressure on tightening suppliers.

As winter looms, anti-freeze and coolants prices are set to rise considerably due to some unique market influences.

The Witham Group says it has secured good rates on bulk orders from coolant manufacturers, to ensure there is enough supply at the best price for customers. In addition, they offer a range of three products, to suit different budgets and applications. The company provides officially approved OEM coolant products for trucks, buses and vans, as well as cars, construction machines and agricultural tractors. Witham Group managing director, Nigel Bottom commented: “Witham is encouraging customers to place orders for anti-freeze/coolants as soon as possible to get the best value price and to help avoid any unforeseeable spikes in demand or price increases. We are advising new and existing customers to get in touch as soon as possible to help ensure supplies are available going forward.” ■

New flagship harvester A new top-of-the-range 925hp Jaguar 990 has been added to the Claas fleet along with additions to the company's Orbis maize header and Torion loader ranges. The new Jaguar model is one of a number of updates and new features for the Jaguar 900 and 800 range next year. These include the adoption of the latest Cebis touchscreen-based control concept across the whole Jaguar range, plus a change to more powerful Stage 5 engines for the 900, a new additive system and a 42-knife chopping cylinder, plus the availability of dynamic steering. For 2020, all Jaguar 900 machines will make the move to Stage 5 engines, developing more power and providing an increase in torque. The 800 range will continue to be powered by Stage 4 compliant engines, with the move to Stage 5 coming in time for maize harvest. Topping the 900-series of forage harvesters, the new 990 is powered by a 925hp Man engine. The Man V12 has a displacement of 24 litres and an 850hp version will also be used in the Jaguar 980. The 970 moves to a new Man D4276 straight

6, which develops 790hp from its displacement of some 16 litres. With a displacement of almost 3 litres per cylinder, this promises a stable power curve with sustained torque, giving the Jaguar 970 the best figures in its class with regard to fuel consumption per tonne of harvested material. The power output of the 960 and 940 models has also increased. Updates to the Orbis maize headers include a makeover for the Orbis 450, which now shares many of the new features initially introduced on the larger Orbis 600SD and 750 last year. The 450 has a working width of 4.5m and as on the 2 larger models it incorporates the new tilting frame concept and redesigned T panels, which reduces weight and increases wear resistance. Newly designed fingers ahead of the knives ensure low-loss crop collection and feature points which can be removed for harvesting laid maize. The new design also adds significant strength to the fingers, which will help, especially in weedy conditions. The new knives with their crescent-shaped blade deliver top cutting quality in all crops, says Claas.

The latest Cebis touchscreenbased control concept has been adopted across the whole Jaguar range.

The central crop feeding tower rotors have been repositioned to improve crop flow and are now angled forward to aid crop feed. They have also been moved further apart, so increasing the feed channel width to allow crop to be fed into the full width of the feed rollers and chopping cylinder. The augers on the side of the Orbis

have also been redesigned to help feed the crop into the header, especially when the crop is laid or flat. These new augers are also now hydraulically driven. ■

Ideal timing and perfect weather for Kent farm dispersal sale

In very good condition, these Dal-Bo Compact 1230, 12.3m folding rolls attracted competitive bidding and are likely to see considerable use this autumn if the dry weather continues. They were straight from Lower Dean’s Farm and their new owner paid £9,000.

A mid-September dispersal sale of farm machinery and equipment attracted buyers from across the South-East and further afield, generating some excellent prices. David Williams was there. The sale was organised by longestablished land agents and auctioneers Lambert & Foster. It was at Lower Dean’s Farm, Dean’s Hill, near Maidstone and included all the machinery and equipment from the farm following the death of its owner, Tony Crouch, late last year. Tony bought the farm in 1961 having relocated from nearby Lenham where his family had a dairy herd and he expanded the herd and built up the farm by acquiring land locally as it became available. The milking herd was dispersed in 2004, but Tony maintained the mixed farm by renting out land for grazing while farming the arable land himself. Most lots were direct from the farm although there were also some

‘included’ items from local dealers and other farms, including several tractors. The sale day weather was dry and sunny, encouraging buyers to remain on site for the duration and an ice cream van in attendance did excellent trade throughout the day.

Well attended “The attendance reflected the attraction of a genuine farm dispersal sale,” commented Lambert & Foster auctioneer Alan Mummery. “There were some ups and downs as always at a farm sale, but with most lots selling for more than the estimates the vendors were happy. “The sale was advertised in Farmers Guide and, as always, we were very pleased with the response.

The magazine is well read in this region, especially by arable and mixed farms,” he added. Tony’s daughter Jenny Conway said she was delighted to see so many familiar friendly faces at the sale and she complimented the Lambert & Foster team, who are also in the process of selling the farm, on their excellent organisation. “From the start they have been great to deal with – very professional and their communication with us couldn’t have been better. They made the whole process easy, attendance at the sale was very good and many lots sold for prices way beyond our expectations although there were a few we all hoped might have fetched more.”

One of the more unusual items for sale was this forward control Mercedes Unimog. It was originally a Landquip sprayer conversion and was new in 1978 with 51,000km recorded. The tyres were Michelin XM108 540/65R24 with 80 per cent remaining tread and the winning bid was £4,300.

Control parasites and protect performance at housing Housing is an ideal time to treat cattle for parasites and this can make a significant difference to productivity levels. So says Boehringer Ingelheim Animal Health vet Sioned Timothy, who met with Rachael Porter to explain that parasitic infections are one of the most common reasons for poor performance and economic loss in cattle farming, even in the absence of clinical disease. Reduced feed intake, weight gain and impaired fertility can be attributed to a parasitic burden in growing cattle. And in replacement heifers the impact of parasites can extend into their first lactation, with reduced milk production. “Sustainable parasite control strategies are increasingly important for the production of healthy heifers,” says Sioned. “Appropriate treatments will help to ensure that they grow quickly, to their full genetic potential.” To achieve an average age at first calving of 24 months, heifers must reach approximately 60 per cent of mature weight by 14 months of age. This requires an average daily weight gain of between 0.7kg and 0.8kg from weaning and bulling. “Heifers have high nutrient requirements as they grow and prepare for calving, and a heavy parasite burden will draw on these resources,” she adds. “This will reduce the nutrients available for growth and slow the time the heifers take to reach their mature weight and become ready to conceive.” In strategically-wormed heifers, studies have shown increased mammary development and earlier onset of puberty, compared to untreated animals. “So monitoring heifer performance and diagnosing parasitic infections is important,” says Sioned. Before considering which

Sioned Timothy: “Ask your vet or animal health adviser for guidance.”

anthelmintic treatment to use, she adds that it is worth considering the performance of the stock during the grazing season, and how it compared with expectations or targets. “Growth rates of young stock in their first and second grazing season are useful indicators of effective parasite control.” She explains that losses in liveweight gain due to poor parasite control during a heifer’s first grazing season will not be recouped during the second year at grass. “Affected animals will not catch up, and this will impact on their ability to meet important growth milestones, which could result in an increased age at first calving. Monitoring growth rates throughout the year will help to identify individuals that may require anthelmintic treatment.” Removing parasites such as gutworms and liver fluke at housing will help to ensure heifers are turned out parasite-free in the spring. This helps to reduce pasture contamination at turnout, thereby lessening parasitic infection in the next grazing season. A targeted approach to parasite

treatments at housing increases the sustainability of anthelmintic control and reduces the selection for resistant parasites. “For this approach to be effective, producers must be able to identify individual cattle that are likely to have a parasite burden. This can be achieved through weight records and targets, or diagnostic testing, such as faecal egg counts,” says Sioned. “Alternatively, a strategic approach should identify groups of cattle for treatment based on a number of risk factors, including farm history, grazing practice during the summer, anthelmintic treatments while at grass, and any clinical signs of disease.” And the type of parasites likely to be present at housing should also guide anthelmintic product selection. “While the important gutworm species, Ostertagia ostertagi and Cooperia oncophora, are often both present at this time of year, their sensitivity to anthelmintics does vary – so ask your animal health advisor for guidance,” she says. Some combination treatments offer convenience by enabling the removal of a wider range of parasites,

such as gutworms and liver fluke. “Resistance to the flukicide triclabendazole is an emerging issue in the sheep and cattle industries. So care should be taken to preserve it for use in sheep, where there is no other alternative for treatment of acute fluke disease.” Alternative treatments for fluke in cattle include those containing closantel, clorsulon or nitroxynil. These treatments may need repeating at the appropriate time after the initial housing dose to ensure that all juvenile and adult fluke are removed and cattle are turned out fluke free. Dairy cows and heifers in calf have more restricted options for liver fluke control due to milk withdrawal periods. Advice should be taken from an animal health advisor. Finally, consider external parasites such as mites and lice, and ensure your chosen housing treatment provides adequate control. Warm cattle sheds can provide the ideal environment for the multiplication and spread of these parasites which cause itching and welfare issues, and can contribute to reduced performance through stress. ■

Worming cattle at housing offers performance benefits.

The 20,000th Tomahawk Bale Processor rolled off the production line in September.

Livestock Adsorbent helps minimise mycotoxin risk A mycotoxin adsorbent, developed to be effective against the 11 most commonly occurring mycotoxins in animal feeds, has been launched by UFAC-UK. Mycotoxins are produced by moulds and fungi that colonise feedstuffs. And, even at low levels, they will reduce cow performance. “So herds will benefit from including supplements in the diet that bind or adsorb the toxins, rendering them inactive and excretable, and reducing the risk of mycotoxicosis,” says the company’s Mike Chown. Combining activated clay minerals with glycerine, the company claims that Mycotrap offers enhanced mycotoxin control and improved liver function when added

to cow rations. Independent tests show that the adsorbent has good binding capacity for a broad range of commonly occurring mycotoxins, including aflatoxins, fumonisin, DON and ZEN. It contains a mineral complex that effectively adsorbs the majority of mycotoxins known to cause reduced productivity and increased disease risks in all livestock. “As well as minimising the risk of mycotoxicosis, it has been developed to help the animal cope with the consequences of mycotoxin poisoning with the inclusion of glycerine,” adds Mike. As a precursor of glucose, the addition of glycerine helps boost the animal’s energy supply to fight infections by supporting recovery of the immune system. “Glycerine also helps to minimise the deterioration of feeds caused by the moulds, which produce mycotoxins by inhibiting mould growth in both feeds and mixed rations.” The typical feed rate for cattle is 25g per head per day, at a cost of around 6p per cow per day. ■ Toxins from moulds growing in feeds can cause mycotoxicosis.

Impresive milestone for Cornish business Hot on the heels of its 75th anniversary, Teagle Machinery celebrated the 20,000th Tomahawk Bale Processor to roll off the production line on 9th September.   The Tomahawk range was launched in 1984 with the ‘Lightning’ model, at a retail price of £700. More than 30 years and 20,000 machines later, the flagship Tomahawk C12 Calibrator retails for £69,905 and features an electric regulation system for driverless operation, with Bluetooth controls for remote operation. Through continual investment in product development, the Tomahawk range has grown to be the cornerstone of the company’s portfolio – which now features 14 models and contributes around 50 per cent to Teagle’s annual sales. Much has changed since

this family-owned business was established in 1943. The company now employs around 200 staff from its base near Truro in Cornwall and exports to over 50 countries worldwide on a regular basis. Continual investment in production technology utilising robot welding, CNC machining and powder coat paint has positioned the brand as a market leader in the straw processing sector on an international stage – with Tomahawk machines found in specialist applications such as landscaping and processing materials for green biomass energy, as well as agriculture. Sales director Tom Teagle said: “We would like to thank all of our customers, UK dealers, international distributors and members of the team at Teagle for their contribution to this significant milestone”. ■

Kuhn’s Primor 15070 M was displayed at UK Dairy Day.

Kuhn Farm Machinery displayed a 15m3 capacity trailed feeder and straw bedding machine at UK Dairy Day (16 September); highlighting its extra-wide 2.53m body and ability to handle as many as four 1.30 x 1.20 x 2.70m rectangular bales, or three round bales up to 2.00m in diameter, at one time.   The Primor 15070 M, the largest machine in Kuhn’s feeder and bedder range, can be customised according to the layout of farm buildings, with a side or multidirectional discharge chute (GL model variant) enabling straw to be blown to the left or right. High output performance has been a key focus throughout the development of the machine, with two powerful intake rotors feeding the full 1,700mm width of the turbine’s input area. A bank of 6 hydraulic tines above the feed rotors enables intake settings to be adjusted and regulated according to the type of product being used, and to feed the turbine with an even supply of material. The turbine itself can blow up to 18m and is fitted with 8 bolt-on blades for pneumatic fodder separation. The Primor 15070 M uses Kuhn’s hydraulic unroll system to clamp subsequent bales in place and stop them from rotating while the first bale is being discharged. It is also equipped with a hydraulic tailgate, with a 1.2t lifting capacity for loading round bales. The floor

58-80 Nov.indd 77

of the body is fitted with a 14mm diameter chain conveyor with an optional boost floor available to provide extra feed conveyor torque for the distribution of heavy products such as grass silage. In common with existing machines in the Primor range, the 15070 M uses Kuhn’s disengageable belt driven Polydrive clutch system to drive the 2 feed rotors which are equipped with 30 cutting sections for ultimate control over cutting length and intensity. All Primor machines are capable of feeding all types of long-strand feedstuffs including straw, silage and haylage. Kuhn’s Cleanstraw dust control system is available as an option on the Primor 15070, or as a retrofit upgrade for existing machines. This facility reduces dust in livestock buildings by applying a fine mist of water to straw as it is distributed for bedding purposes. It comprises a 64-litre water tank and 3 misting nozzles mounted at the exit of the straw blowing chute. The nozzles are fed by a 12v/15amp pump, which provides water at a flow rate of 1.8 litres per minute, enough to treat 12-18 bales of straw at a rate of 1 litre of water per 100kg of straw.   The starting price for the basic Primor 15070 (with side chute and electric control) is £35,418. ■

Poultry farmers should take action now to reduce the risk of avian influenza this winter, the UK’s chief veterinary officers have said. Defra recommends keeping areas housing birds clean and tidy, controlling rats and mice and regularly disinfecting hard surfaces. Footwear should be cleaned before and after visits and bird feed and water should be placed in fully enclosed areas that are protected from wild birds – with any spilled feed being regularly removed. Vets also advise putting fencing around outdoor areas and limiting birds’ access to ponds or areas visited by wild waterfowl. Where possible, ducks and geese should not be kept with other poultry species. It is also a legal requirement for those with 50 or more birds to register them on the Great Britain Poultry Register.

Those with fewer birds are also strongly encouraged to register. The H5N6 strain of avian influenza was confirmed in 21 wild birds between January and June 2018. While no cases were found in domestic poultry or captive birds in 2018, Defra says the virus is still circulating around the world, so it is important to take action to improve biosecurity. A joint statement by the four UK veterinary officers said: “Avian flu is a constant threat to all poultry, and with winter approaching there will be an increasing risk of disease incursion from migrating birds. It is therefore important that all keepers of poultry, including game birds and pet birds, act now to reduce the risk of transmission of avian flu to their flocks.” ■

Potatoes – including BP2019

Potato show to tackle industry challenges With growers facing a changing industry and political uncertainty, this year’s British Potato Industry Event offers a varied and topical seminar programme – ranging from sourcing alternatives to lost chemicals, to finding funding for development post-Brexit. Sarah Kidby reports. Organised by AHDB, the bi-annual event brings together the entire potato industry, from growers and handlers to processors and retailers. AHDB’s potato strategy director Dr Rob Clayton says the main focus for this year is helping growers to prepare for and deal with change. Show visitors will be able to hear from researchers who have been exploring the alternatives to CIPC, as well as conducting national field trials for mechanical and chemical alternatives to diquat. Growers who have hosted some of the research work will also take to the stage to discuss the results so far, and there will be opportunities for questions and discussions. Additional presentations outside of the main programme will include a keynote open meeting staged by the National Farmers’ Union, focusing on the latest issues relating to our trading relationship with Europe. The Nematicide Stewardship Programme will also lead an open meeting. AHDB says the event is set to host a record number of exhibitors, with one in five coming to the show for the first time and launching entirely new products and services. Meanwhile, many regular exhibitors will also be bringing innovative new ideas. Show director Steve Wellbeloved comments: “Just looking at agronomy, there are new methods for indoor seed production using controlled environment technologies. While at the other end of the crop cycle, new monitoring systems can literally ‘sniff-

out’ the very first signs of trouble in potato stores.”

What to look out for While it may not immediately jump out from the seminar programme, Dr Clayton recommends attending the ‘Managing the future of your business’ session with two Herefordshire farmers, Russell Price and Martin Williams. “It is a session that looks at some of the soft skills and tools you need to be a successful farmer in today’s rapidly changing world,” he explains. “Russell and Martin have done a lot of work looking at why they farm, and how they can be more successful as businessmen and managers of people. They’re happy to share their experiences and discuss the future; we hope lots of others will join them.” Dr Clayton notes that as the show falls three weeks after the 31st October deadline for Brexit, the final session on day one (‘Funding and development in the post-subsidy era’) will take stock of the current situation. Commenting on supply and demand problems for potatoes in the UK, he says it is still very early to know how the market will settle down, but the live AHDB production estimate on day two of the show will give growers some additional insight.

What’s new this year? BP2019 will offer a Storage Network, giving all growers who store a chance

Business topics will take centre stage in a special Trade and Innovation Hub (hall 1, area 114), where the Department for International Trade will look at export opportunities, while trade associations will be available for informal discussion on key industry matters. Alongside them in the hub, the Knowledge Transfer Network will highlight the wide-ranging support available for potato businesses of all sizes, which are keen to improve competitiveness through innovation. This will include practice case studies and informal presentations running throughout the show.

CPD anyone? For those keen to top up on CPD points for professional registrations, up to 12 BASIS points will be available across the two-day show. NRoSO points are also available for show attendance. ■

Four Kwatro Xtreme harvesters will be running in the country this year.

Machinery company Dewulf has revealed that a total of four Kwatro Xtreme harvesters will be running in the country this year. The selfpropelled, four-row sieving harvester maintains the full 3.6m width of its sieving webs throughout the entire sieving path, which makes the machine truly unique in its segment, the company says. This harvester, with a large 17m3 bunker, is ideal for growers who plant in 4 x 90cm, or grow in beds of 180cm. After sieving, the product

flow reaches the hedgehog unit for initial intensive cleaning, to optimise cleaning results in the following cleaning module (sieving module, axial module consisting of 36 rollers or Flexyclean). Furthermore, thanks to its 900mm wide tracks and the super-wide rear wheel (Mitas 1250/50R32), the Kwatro Xtreme promises perfectly flat ground after harvesting (with minimal compaction), has high traction, and is highly manoeuvrable. ■

Potatoes – including BP2019

New machine lightens the load for veg grower Loading times have been dramatically reduced at one of the UK’s largest vegetable producers and processors, as a result of investment in a new machine. MH Poskitt Ltd – known as Poskitts – is a family-owned farming business based in Goole, East Yorkshire. It was the first to receive delivery of Tong Engineering’s new FieldLoad PRO machine in September following its launch in January. The FieldLoad was introduced as a ‘next generation machine’, based on Tong’s Fieldloader which it has manufactured for several years. Managing director Edward Tong said the new model was part of the company’s product development programme, which focuses on equipment advances that ensure equipment meets industry requirements and market demands. “The emphasis from growers on reducing crop miles and soil on the roads continues to be a fundamental element when specifying new grading equipment,” Mr Tong said. “In addition, changes in contract specifications for many growers has meant that loading crop straight into bulker lorries at the field-side is an

increasingly desirable way of doing things. This is where we have seen great demand for the new FieldLoad PRO machine since its launch.” At approximately 15m long in transport mode, the self-contained FieldLoad PRO configured for MH Poskitt features a high capacity reception hopper feeding Tong’s 6 Row EasyClean separator. After crop has passed over the EasyClean, it is transferred to Tong’s adjustable PU spiral sizing unit with high-speed self-cleaning function, for effective removal of smalls. An insulated 4-man inspection cabin houses the machine’s intelligent Auto-Touch HMI touchscreen control unit and completes the system, before crop transfers to Tong’s new-style slewing and foldable 1.3m wide cart elevator for high capacity loading. Fast and even lorry loading is achieved by Tong’s advanced Wi-Fi operated touchscreen remote control, ensuring gentle transfer of crop into the bulker trailer. The new machine also comes complete with road-going lights, suspension, brakes and a super-silent onboard generator which provides power efficiency for in-field operation. This can be bypassed

The FieldLoad PRO from Tong Engineering has reduced load times for Poskitts.

for mains power when operating on-farm. “We already operate a Tong Fieldloader which has proved to be very reliable across the multiple sites where it is used,” said managing director Guy Poskitt. “With increased contract demands we needed a second field-loading machine, and I’m pleased to say that within the first few hours of running Tong’s FieldLoad PRO, we could see the efficiencies that the new system will bring.” Poskitts farm manager Jamie Gutteridge, said the team was impressed with the new system,

which replaced an old system that featured a grader and supplementary loading elevators. “The FieldLoad PRO has reduced our lorry loading times by at least half. The machine is also versatile across all our main root crops. We’ve already used it to load potatoes, carrots and parsnips in one day, with excellent cleaning results. “Another huge benefit is that the FieldLoad PRO is fully transportable by tractor, and in less than 10 minutes we can have it completely folded into transport mode and ready to move on from field to field.” ■

Avoiding costly breakdowns in potato equipment

Dutch agricultural company adds new brand to UK market The Tolsma-Grisnich Group, which offers solutions for product storage, processing and packaging, has added its third brand, Grisnich, to the UK market. Grisnich has been manufacturing handling and grading equipment for 60 years, gaining international knowledge and experience. The brand provides crop handling solutions – receiving, dry-cleaning/de-soiling, grading and conveying produce into weighing, packaging and palletising, or into washing installations. It has been three years since Farm Electronics became a subsidiary of the group. Both the Tolsma and Farm Electronics brands have their ‘specific’ UK or European potato, onion and

carrot storage solutions, as well as offering hybrid solutions with a mix of UK and Dutch equipment. The group says it recognises the challenges associated with providing a healthy and assured food supply for a growing global population. However, it believes innovation and development is the key to reaching this goal and overcoming these challenges. Grisnich, which has supplied equipment to industrial potato processors in the UK for several years, says it recognises the growing need for custom-made flexible solutions for its customers. Traditional standard technology is no longer sufficient and the demand for professional, intelligent solutions is on the up. ■

Those currently lifting potatoes will understand that, during the busy harvest season, it is vital to fit equipment with the best wear components. This helps to avoid costly breakdowns and maintain machine efficiency for longer, which can often be affected by premature component wear. Rubber and polyurethane wear parts therefore play an essential role in many aspects of the potato industry, including soil preparation, planting, harvesting, cleaning and packing. This need for reliability, durability and value for money is why the leading OEMs, dealers and farmers

use Clifton Rubber’s range of rubber and polyurethane components, which include harvester rollers, de-stoning stars, cleaning stars and cleaning coils to name a few. Clifton Rubber is a British manufacturer of general rubber and polyurethane components and has been manufacturing wear parts for the potato industry for over 40 years. The company will be exhibiting at the Midlands Machinery Show at Newark Showground (JCH2 Stand 18), and at the British Potato Event at the Harrogate Yorkshire Event Centre (stand 122) on 20th and 21st November 2019. ■

Innovative new product allows for in-field variability SoilEssentials Ltd, the award-winning, Scottish precision farming specialist, is ready to introduce its newest product, Tuberzone. Aimed initially at the seed and salad potato grower, this new-tothe-market innovation, – developed to allow for in-field variability – tracks and predicts yield and size throughout the season, giving you the optimum time for desiccation – maximising the peak value on a crop. New developments extend Tuberzone into starch, packing and processing crops, where it can be run on a large scale to inform the growers and supply chain of likely yield, size and total production. Three years ago SoilEssentials embarked on this ambitious project, supported by InnovateUK and in collaboration with McCain (the world’s largest manufacturer of frozen potato products) and Grimme (the innovative manufacturer of potato, beet and vegetable technology). This year, supported by the European Knowledge Transfer and Innovation Fund (KTIF) through the Scottish Rural Development

Tuberzone allows for in-field variability.

Programme (SRDP), SoilEssentials has partnered with Grampian Growers, a farmer-owned co-operative based on the east coast of Scotland and SAC Consulting, SRUC’s consultancy division to increase the uptake of the innovative Tuberzone potato technology. Tuberzone is relatively new technology based on GPS, drone and satellite. Associated data from the activities required for Tuberzone are gathered, processed and analysed in the SoilEssentials cloud platform, Kore. A combination of all the sources of information come together, with a level of precision farming wizardry, to give the grower the pertinent information. Tuberzone is the first precision farming solution for potatoes that delivers on improved quality, predicting potato yields at the ideal time for crop management and enhances the way growers work already by reducing the number of crop digs needed. SoilEssentials


managing director, Jim Wilson explains: “Tuberzone is a Precision Farming solution that aims at not just cutting costs, increasing yield or improving resource use efficiency. It is a whole-season process aimed at helping growers, merchants, processors and retailers to fulfil

Planning for potato storage without CIPC Biox-M trials in Israel.

With the withdrawal of approval for CIPC as a sprout suppressant on potatoes in-store finally sinking in, those who have not looked at alternatives will now be rushing to gain a little experience before CIPC disappears completely in mid-2020. Juno (Plant Protection) Ltd says many stores will be treated with Biox-M – a well-established treatment to control sprouting in potato stores – for the first time this autumn. The company says it is essential that growers and store managers appreciate that the

use of a new product requires particular diligence in store and crop management, as well as attention to the technical and best practice guidelines. Biox-M has been approved for use as a sprout suppressant in the UK for nearly a decade, and has been used on a wide range of British potato varieties with excellent sprout control. For fresh market and organic crops, Biox-M is well understood and in widespread use; it is part of the normal tool box and the company says market share is increasing

rapidly as growers gain experience. The processing sector is now playing catch-up and seeking to learn as much as possible from the 2019 harvest. Trials using Biox-M in large commercial processing crop stores on the continent have proved highly successful, and a number of British growers of processing crops are undertaking commercial scale trials with the 2019 crop. Biox-M is a 100 per cent naturally occurring spearmint oil, which suppresses sprouting in potatoes by causing local necrosis

of the bud meri-stem, with no visible damage to the skin of the tuber. It is approved for use on organic potato crops and can be used in multi-use stores. It is widely used on crops grown for the fresh market, with longevity of control well in excess of normal commercial requirements, and should be applied just before eyes open. This product can be used on processing crops stored at up to 10°C, thus allowing store managers to address concerns about the development of acrylamide. There is no harvest interval before crops can be removed from store and it is applied to stores as a hot fog using existing technology. It is most effective with internal air circulation used to ensure even distribution in-store. Biox-M may also be applied with an evaporative process, which maintains a saturated atmosphere at lower cost. In addition, the product leaves no residue in buildings or boxes. ■

Engineers build refrigerated potato box store Bennett & Co has recently completed a refrigerated potato box store, consisting of four 1,000t storage areas – each with Farm Electronics refrigeration/air mix units.

At the rear of the building there are external condenser units and soundinsulated air intake cowls.

Each storage area is to be controlled and monitored by the new Cropscan 12-inch touchscreen controller. This is linked to broadband so the store manager can view and control the store environment remotely, on a computer or smartphone. At the rear of the building (pictured) there are external condenser units and sound insulated air intake cowls. Along with insulated air distribution ducts and slow speed evaporator fans, this allows for significant noise reduction – which is required given the building’s close proximity to neighbouring properties. In addition, acoustic cowls have been fitted to existing potato stores on the site to meet the noise levels required. The four storage areas each have a Challow Products timber suction wall to ensure even air distribution through the boxes. Mike Bennett of Bennett & Co designed and managed the project, working with A. C. Bacon Engineering on the building; DG Scales on the ground works; and Harnwell Electrical on the electrical installation. ■

Coates depot to add convenience for farmers Clients of machinery company Grimme UK will now be able to order parts from either the Swineshead HQ in Lincolnshire, or the Ben Burgess Ltd depot in Coates, near Peterborough.

The company’s managing director and sales director, Nick Cesare, said: “We are demonstrating the capabilities of our competitively priced Universal Sack Closer (USC) for smaller growers as well as the GP7 pick-and-place robot on our stand this year. “It’s exciting to be working in an industry where robotics is playing an increasingly greater role in the manufacturing process. “We are pleased to be attending the Potato Event again this year and we are looking forward to showcasing our systems to existing and new clients and sharing some of that excitement with them.” The USC incorporates the Newlong stitching machine, combined with customised handling equipment that adds versatility to close sack filling solutions. The machines can handle any size of pre-made sack with flexible options on sealing, designed to meet customer requirements across a range of applications for food and drink

processing, aggregates and animal feed. It is also conveniently heightadjustable and mounted on a heavy duty-frame. The touchscreen display allows simple and easy control of timers and machine setup, and a thread break device is incorporated as standard to prevent unstitched bags being created. The GP7 pick-and-place robot can be tailored to a customer’s exact needs and is designed to grasp, lift, and position items precisely, whatever their shape or size. According to Pace, this opens up ‘endless possibilities’ in terms of what produce or product types can be handled, and forms an integral part of the company’s palletising solutions. ■

The latest generation of de-stoner from Norfolk manufacturer CTM Harpley – the Rockstar2 – is now in work for UK potato growers. Growers including Heygate Farms and Eastgate Farms both used previous Rockstar models to provide the best possible growing conditions for their crops and have taken on the new model. Mr Wace of Eastgate Farms said he was pleased with the separation achieved, but with a greater output than his previous machines, not to mention reduced running costs and downtime. He also commented that the results were improved further by ridging with the farm’s new CTM Ridgestar Ridger. “It left

a much wider and cleaner trench and also a more even-sized bed of soil, which enabled full use of the de-stoner separation area”. Meanwhile, Ropa’s Keiler potato harvester is now being demonstrated on Norfolk farms. Launched in the UK when there were concerns over chemical restriction, the Keiler requires no pre-flailing as the machine has a diviner web to remove the haulm and trash from the tubers. CTM has also had great interest from customers in the quick release lifting head, which can be achieved in no more than 15 minutes, to enable different lifting units to lift crops of onions, carrots and red beet – a true all-round machine. ■

Potatoes – including BP2019

Best practice advice for the 2019/2020 potato storage season

With the end of CIPC crop treatment in sight, the Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board (AHDB) is offering its top tips for sprout suppression best practice as we move into the potato lifting season. Recommendations for CIPC-treated stores With CIPC losing its authorisation for use on 8th January 2020, this season is the last to see harvested crop treated with CIPC in the UK and European market. As always,

final CIPA applications must be made in accordance with CIPA Stewardship and statutory label requirements, the maximum doses being as follows: 24g per tonne for the fresh market (limited to a single application of 12g per

tonne for crops stored below 50C) and 36g per tonne for processing. It is worth noting that, although these are the maximum doses to ensure compliance, it is strongly recommended that a minimum effective dosage approach is taken in order to mitigate any CIPC residue contamination in subsequent seasons. For more guidance on CIPC compliance, visit www. cipccompliant.co.uk

when introducing it into stores. Combination treatments of MH applied during the growing season plus either ethylene or spearmint oil introduced post-harvest yield yet another set of results, significantly reducing sprouting in storage trials undertaken at Sutton Bridge. Make sure to consult your contractor and/or approval holders of your sprout suppressant of choice for guidance.

Alternative post-harvest treatments

Historical use of CIPC

If you have a new store which has not yet received a CIPC treatment, the AHDB strongly recommends that no CIPC is applied this season. Alternative post-harvest sprout suppression treatments are ethylene or spearmint oil (plus maleic hydrazide (MH) as a field-applied product), although research trials indicate that these are not as consistent as CIPC in effectively controlling sprouting, with certain varieties of potato responding better than others to their application. For ethylene in particular a gradual increase in concentration is required

If you are currently storing potatoes in stores that won’t be treated with CIPC this year but have received such treatments in the past, these stores present an opportunity to test for CIPC residual levels to aid research. Any collected data will help towards informing regulators on a temporary Maximum Residue Level (MRL), and the AHDB would be keen to hear from you. If you’re unsure of your sprout control strategy or want to check best practice is being followed, whatever your choice of suppressant, the AHDB offers a free Storage Advice Line so you can speak to one of its storage experts. ■

Field-level weather station to aid precision farming Every farmer knows how much rainfall, temperature and relative humidity can vary from field to field. With this in mind, Metos UK Ltd will be launching its new field-level weather station, ‘LoRAIN’. Harnessing modern communication infrastructures for work planning and disease management, it’s an essential sensor set for your field. Asked about the new product, managing director David Whattoff said: “Following customer feedback for a simple, low cost sensor which can be placed in every field post-planting, our LoRAIN device monitors rainfall, air temperature, humidity and leaf wetness. Combining these measurements enables growers to plan their irrigation and spray programmes more effectively, especially where distant fields are concerned.” Installation takes just five minutes and the data is available without subscription using the FieldClimate app or through the John Deere Operations Centre. LoRAIN also works from

an everlasting energy source – requiring no batteries to be changed.

Potatoes – including BP2019

Water conservation agent shortlisted for new award Wetting and water conservation agent H2Flo, by ICL, has been shortlisted as a finalist in the first National Potato Industry Awards. “At a time when many growers are looking to reduce water consumption and improve farm efficiency, H2Flo has been proven to help significantly increase potato yields and reduce water use,” explains Debbie Nolloth, ICL specialty agriculture sales and marketing coordinator.   “It is essential farmers manage water effectively to help tackle issues such as water scarcity, crop quality and production costs. Containing a unique blend of surfactants, H2Flo promotes improved water infiltration into the soil, enhanced moisture distribution within the soil profile − both vertically and laterally − as well as increased water retention. “H2Flo can also reduce soil hydrophobicity in water repellent soils. Ultimately, it improves overall water use efficiency.”  

Lancashire-based agronomist John Cairns (right), of ProCam County Crops, offers advice to potato and carrot growers with soils ranging from sandy loam to peaty soils – many of which have no access to irrigation. “I’ve been working with H2Flo for over four years and growers are seeing good results with significant boosts to yield as well as quality,” he explains.  In a number of half field and replicated trials, potatoes growers applying H2Flo have reported increases in the yield of marketable size potatoes. “An application of H2Flo around emergence, followed by another half dose four weeks later, has shown the best results – delivering a good return on investment. Those with irrigation are reporting significant improvements to moisture distribution

following the first pass. Many of my potato and carrot growers are now treating the majority of their fields with H2Flo.”   ICL’s UK trials have shown this improvement in productivity can directly boost farm profits by over £1,000/ha. Where irrigation is not available, H2Flo helps make rainwater more available to the crop. For convenience, H2Flo can be applied a number of ways, either tank mixed with, for instance, a blight spray, or by trickle irrigation.  “With water becoming such a key issue for UK farmers, we are delighted H2Flo has been shortlisted for this new National Potato Industry Award,” Debbie says. ICL’s stand at BP2019 and CropTec this autumn will also feature controlled release fertilisers (CRF). Part of the company’s vision for a more sustainable method of farming, CRFs can deliver benefits in efficiency,

economy and ecology. Two controlledrelease NPK fertilisers ranges – Agromaster and Agrocote – will also be showcased on the stand. According to ICL, employing its patented E-Max technology, 30-40 per cent of the N in Agromaster is coated and released over a 2- to 3-month period − depending on the product selected − even if rainfall is high, without leaching away from the root zone. The release of the product is controlled by temperature only. The remaining N is uncoated, promoting early development. Agrocote is ICL’s coated urea product. Technical personnel will also be on hand at the event to talk about ICL’s portfolio of Nova Straight water-soluble fertilisers, including the patented PeKacid.  The winners of the first National Potato Industry Awards will be announced at the Harrogate Yorkshire Event Centre, on the first night of BP2019 on 20th November, 2019. ■

• AgriScot attracts almost 12,000 farmers and other agri-professionals from all corners of Britain and beyond. Held at the Royal Highland Centre, right next to Edinburgh airport, visitors can fly-in, fly-out on the same day. The location also means easy motorway access and a direct tram route from the main-line train station at Edinburgh Waverley.

Key reasons to attend:

This year the event will feature over 240 trade stands plus a machinery hall packed with the latest information, innovation and advice to help today’s farmers get the most from their business. The free-to-attend business seminars at AgriScot are a major

attraction year after year. For 2019 the packed programme will include political debate, new entrant advice, digital accounting and a sneak insight into the Oxford Farming Conference. A main ring demonstration of beef cattle management techniques and workshops with appeal to all farming sectors will take place throughout the day. The beef demonstration is recognised as one of the main attractions at the show. The Farm of the Year Awards are a big deal. Awards are made annually to nominated farms, judged by the assessors to be the best arable, beef, dairy and sheep units in Scotland. The annual silage competition is organised by Andrew Best, from sponsor Watson Seeds. "AgriScot chairman, Robert Neil, explains how the competition fits in with the overall event: AgriScot is attended by a great many livestock farmers and, indeed, contractors, for whom quality silage production is hugely important. We are always looking to showcase best practice at AgriScot and rewarding the

fruits of successful silage-making is part of that overall aim. ” The 2019 competition will see prizes of over £5,000 awarded. The AgriScot Business Skills competition encourages young farmers, students and other young agricultural professionals to demonstrate and further develop their farm business management skills. The final of the competition takes place on the day of AgriScot, with the winner presented with a cheque for £1,000 courtesy of sponsors, Dairymaster. Previous winner, Andrew McGregor, had this to say: "Being involved in the AgriScot Business Skills competition was a real challenge and a good introduction to planning projects on-farm. As a young person in farming there are not many chances to be the main decision-maker when it comes to major investment, so to get the experience doing that within a competition was a great opportunity.” Andrew was recently appointed as chairman of the SAYFC Agri Affairs group, and is keen to add that the competition is not solely for students – it’s open to anyone under 26 years of age.

Reinventing the wheel

The new PRR-610-LW wheel offers greater durability than the original equivalent part.

Visitors to Agricast’s stand at this year’s Midlands Machinery Show (20-21st November) will be the first to see the company’s new PRR-610-LW wheel and range of subsoiler points. Following the successful launch of the 610 and 710 Press Roll Rings at last year’s show, the company has developed a lighter version of the wheel. The new PRR-610-LW is designed for use on Simba SL and DTX machines, which use 276mm diameter steel tubes. Agricast says it is fully compatible with original parts and offers greater durability than the original equivalent part. “When we reinvented the wheel last year with the introduction of the 610 and 710 Press Roll Rings there was incredible interest in them,” explained general manager William

Robinson. “We hope to create the same amount of buzz at this year’s Midlands Machinery Show when we introduce people to the PRR-610-LW. “We’ve worked very hard to engineer a new wheel that offers exceptional value for money combined with the highest quality and longevity. We have also been hard at work developing a new range of ProLift Points which offer exceptional durability through the use of Tungsten Carbide and hard facing.” Agricast’s new Heavy Duty Pro-Lift Points will make their show debut at the November event alongside the PRR-610-LW. The stronger and longer lasting part was developed because farmers were reporting faster wear on standard points, due to harsher weather conditions. The new point,

which is designed to fit Simba Pro Lift legs, is substantially broader on the front end and over a kilo heavier than Agricast’s range of standard points. “Last year’s weather was challenging for many farmers and conditions this year have been no different in some areas of the UK,” Mr Robinson added. “We heard over and over again that the dry conditions were increasing wear on points, so we decided to do something about it. “We’ve taken our standard point, which is an extremely popular part, and added extensive Tungsten Carbide and hard facing to it. We’ve also made the point slightly wider and heavier. The result is a replacement part that has proved incredibly resilient in tests. We hope it will be a popular choice.” As well as the new point and press

roll ring, Agricast will once again be showcasing its High Strength Wheel. Since unveiling the wheel at last year’s Midlands Machinery Show, it has sold over 1,000 of the 24-inch, 8-spoke super strong wheels. The 1,000th wheel arrived in New South Wales, Australia, just before the show. As well as being stronger than alternatives, Agricast said it is significantly cheaper than comparable wheels and will fit most leading machines – including Cousins, Dal-Bo, HE-VA, Twose and Simba/Great Plains. “We’ve been really pleased with the way our High Strength Wheel has been received,” Mr Robinson noted. “We developed this new eight-spoke design to offer farmers, contractors and manufacturers a stronger ring at a more competitive price point compared to Ductile Steel. “We spent a lot of time on the computer designing this new ring to ensure that it’s as strong as it can be. We undertook load analysis and extensive testing to ensure it is robust and long-lasting. Unlike other rings on the market, the key advantage of the Agricast High Strength Wheel is that the wearing edge of the ring still contains plenty of metal compared to its rivals.” Established in 1987 and based on the family’s Lincolnshire farm, Agricast is the UK’s leading Cambridge roll ring specialist and also supplies a wide range of press rings, disc blades and subsoiler wear parts. The company also offers bespoke alterations and fabrication services. Visit Agricast on Stand 27 at the Midlands Machinery Show (20th and 21st November), in the George Stephenson Exhibition Hall, Newark Showground. ■

Mr Smith commented: “After three years of development work at my grain store, the BDC Moisture Monitoring System has now become a valuable tool during the harvest season. “I can instantly see any changes in grain moisture going in to the dryer or coming out, and react accordingly. It’s easy to operate and the information is easy to see at a glance. This is what I have been waiting for!” Another of the test sites was Kensham Farms near High Wycombe. Owner Charlie Edgely said he was hugely impressed: “It’s absolutely fantastic. It saved precious time during harvest because at a glance I could see which way the incoming and outgoing grain moistures were trending and I could make adjustments to the dryer accordingly.

“I can instantly see any changes in grain moisture going in to the dryer or coming out, and react accordingly” – Benny Smith, Manor Road, Oxfordshire.

“Previously, wet samples were taken from the intake pit and dry samples had to be taken from the final destination bunker, which could be awkward and time consuming. Everything is now really convenient: we have the sampling point next to the grain store office and the control screen in the office next to the other grain store control panels.” ■

Midlands Machinery Show

New L-Line spreaders ‘offer improved performance’ A new range of tractor mounted twin disc fertiliser broadcasters has been launched for the small-to-mediumscale grassland or arable farmer. Keith Rennie Machinery (KRM Ltd) says the new line improves spreading performance and ease of use. The new L-line consists of 2 models with capacities to match 600kg big bag sizes. The L15 has a basic capacity of 700 litres (approx one bag), which can be increased by adding easy bolt-on extensions to 1,600 litres (approx 2 bags plus a spare), and offers spread widths from 12-18m. The L20 also has a base capacity of 700 litres (approximately one bag), which can be increased to 2,050 litres (approx three bags plus spare) and offers spread widths from 12-24m. According to KRM, the L15 and L20 have an overall hopper width of 2.1m for safe transport on narrow roads, or where access is limited. Both models feature a redesigned chassis to ensure all surfaces are angled to prevent fertiliser being trapped. The modern curved hopper design, without sharp corners, prevents fertiliser lodging and allows easy cleaning. Warning

reflectors are built in to the front and rear corners for extra road safety. At the heart of the new M-Line is KRM’s proven Trend spread unit with two large diameter discs, which rotate toward the centre to gently accelerate fertiliser – giving a wide four double overlap spread pattern. This ensures an accurate and even application with ‘tolerance’, so variations in product, cross winds or driver error have little effect, with less risk of striping. For headland spreading, the disc direction is reversed so that fertiliser runs on the shorter back of the Trend vane to give a precise level spread with sharp cut-off to the field border. To meet environmental and crop assurance standards, the operator can adjust the headland spread from the tractor seat, simply by adjusting the Pto speed. Ease of cleaning has been a priority in the development of the new L-Line spreaders, so that washing down is easy, quick and thorough. All protection guards can be pivoted out of position, without tools, to give clear access for cleaning. In addition, special washer access ports have been provided in the frame to

allow complete cleaning of all parts of the chassis frame and spreading mechanism. Extensive use of stainless steel and a plasticised powder paint finish ensure long life protection. Both models include a quick release flap in each disc to allow quick and easy emptying of the hopper contents. Comprehensive standard equipment on the L15 and L20 models includes hydraulic on/ off control, fine mesh screens to remove lumps, disc drive with sealed maintenance-free clutch protection and a quick setting calibration kit for precise rate. The L20 also includes a folding hopper cover to protect the contents and fully sealed LED road lighting. A three-position outlet system allows for precise control of the application rate, from a Micro setting for slug pellets to Min for fine seeds such as cover crops and Std for fertiliser rates up to 300kg/min. Options include in-cab electronic control using the Calibrator Icon, NAVIcom Tablet control or Isobus, which can be linked to GPS systems for headland auto on/off, section control and variable rate application

New L-Line spreaders from KRM include a high level of standard equipment.

following pre-prepared maps. In addition, the L20W model includes weigh cell technology, which continuously monitors, assesses and adjusts the regulating mechanism while ‘on-the-move’. Combined with Intelligent Control, which incorporates an inclinometer and accelerometer, the application rate accuracy is within+/- one per cent, even on slopes or in uneven field conditions. Prices for the new KRM L-line twin disc spreaders, which are available for immediate delivery, range from £3,980 for the L15 and from £6,830 for the L20. ■

its rotors to process bales of 90 or 120cm height. The bale spike has two 0.9m tines with 1.3m spacing and incorporates an automatic coupling which makes loading a quick and simple process. Bales can be loaded straight from a stack even inside low buildings and do not need to be double-handled. To achieve an even and consistent bed for animals, the Distor features an over-load protection system as standard which regulates the throughput of

material: if too much is fed into the rotors, the bed automatically stops to allow the rotors to process material efficiently without clumps. The sensitivity is adjustable according to the quality of straw being spread and, in combination with blades on the rotors, means the Distor will cope with the toughest bales. The spread pattern is adjustable from 1.8-6.0m or up to 9.0m with an optional rear deflector. Other options include electrically-controlled side deflectors. ■

Materials Handlers

Power on the land Materials handling is the topic for this month’s Power on the Land, brought to you by Mike Williams. Materials handling forms a major part of the work load on the majority of farms, and efficiency improvements for lifting, loading and stacking jobs can bring big savings in time and labour costs. One of the biggest advances in handling efficiency on farms has been the development of big round and square bales to replace the small traditional bales developed for manual handling. Using big bales plus a suitable loader and handling attachment can bring dramatic gains in handling rates, including faster field clearance of straw bales to allow autumn cultivations to start. Gloucestershire-based Albutt offers a wide choice of loader and tractor attachments for materials handling jobs on farms, including buckets, shear grabs, forks and skips, and their bale handler range includes special versions for wrapped bales. The F450 Side Squeeze Bale Grab is suitable for round or square wrapped bales, with a smooth surface on the hydraulically operated gripping arms to avoid damaging the wrapping film. Square bales can be gripped on the sides or, subject to length, end-on, and wrapped round bales can be turned on end for loading or stacking. Albutt also offers a choice of bale grabs with spikes, including the F501 version for handling two Hesston-type bales or three mini Hesstons, and this increases to three Hesstons or four mini Hesstons for their F650HX Bale King attachment. Loader attachments for bale handling available from the farm-based Heath Engineering company include their Super Spike with 1.5t carrying capacity. Safety features include steel spikes that can be folded when not carrying a bale, and there is an extending safety bar for

The Super Grab big bale handling attachment from Heath Engineering.

additional security. The Heath range also includes the Super Grab loader attachment equipped with 70cm Hardox steel tines. It is suitable for square bales measuring 120 x 120 x 240cm, 120 x 90 x 240cm and 120 x 80 x 240cm, and the bales can be carried either upright or on their sides. As well as bale handling, the Heath attachments range includes a grain pusher, a range of tipping buckets, a general-purpose handling jib and they also offer a mole plough. The adoption of big round and square bales during the 1970s was encouraged by the introduction of telescopic loaders offering more lift capacity with greater forward and vertical reach than a tractor-mounted loader or a forklift attachment. Recent developments in the telehandler market include last year’s launch of the new Manitou MLA-T 533-145 V+ model based on an articulated frame design and powered by a 143hp engine. The specification includes a front mounted boom positioned centrally in front of the cab, providing 5.2m maximum lift height, and the transmission is hydrostatic and continuously variable with a selection of operating modes. The Manitou materials handler range also includes more than 20 rigid frame MLT series telehandler models with up to 4.5t lift capacity and 9.6m maximum lift height. The smaller models have Kubota engines, with the medium and large capacity loaders using Deutz, John Deere or Mercedes power units. Also introduced last year were the 4 new models in JCB’s Series III Loadall telehandler range. The new arrivals were the 538-60 model with a 6.0m lift height, the 532-70 and the 542-70 both provide 7.0m lift and this increases to 9.5m for the Loadall 536-95. The new models are all available in a series of specification levels with engine outputs from 75 to 145hp, starting with the entry level AGRI grade followed by the AGRI Plus, the AGRI Super and the flagship AGRI Pro version at the top of the list with its advanced DualTech stepless transmission. Loadall Series III improvements also include adding the latest JCB CommandPlus cab, which already featured on the company’s S series wheeled loaders, while modifications to the chassis and pivot point have allowed a lift capacity increase of between 100 and 200kg for each model compared with their predecessors. The list of new loader developments in 2018 also included the K407 and K429 models in the Kramer telehandler range. These bring the number of Kramer telescopic loader models to 12, and there are also 13 wheel and telescopic wheel loader models. The K407 telehandler carries a 4,000kg maximum payload, the stacking height is up to 7.0m and the engine power is 100hp. The payload increases to 4,200kg for the K429, the maximum stacking height is 8.7m and the power output is 115hp. Kramer telehandlers start

with the K276 providing 2.7t load capacity and equipped with a 75hp engine and the stacking height is 5.7m. Design features available in the Kramer telescopic loader range include automatic bucket return, the cabs are designed to provide excellent all-round visibility and infinitely variable travel speed control is also available. The handling equipment available from Caterpillar for the farming industry includes 5 TH series telescopic loader models providing lift capacities ranging from 3,500 to 4,000kg. Engine outputs are from 74 to 113hp and the maximum lift heights are from 7.0m upwards. The model with the biggest lift height is the TH 417D which can reach an impressive 17.0m with support from the stabilisers, and the maximum load capacity at the full height is 2.5t. Caterpillar also offers a range of wheeled loaders for heavy duty materials handling work including bulk grain handling, and there is also a range of skid-steer loaders suitable for handling manure and feed in livestock units and for horticultural work. Power outputs for the skidsteer loaders range from 61hp for the 226B Series 3 model with 680kg operating capacity, and the 272D2 XHP loader at the top of the range has a 106hp engine powering the 1,856kg capacity. ■

The recently introduced Series III Loadalls from JCB feature cab improvements and increased lift capacity.

Materials Handlers Bigger range means more capacity Attachment specialist Albutt has increased its range of shear grabs and shear buckets. The 17 models range from 0.7– 2.5m3 capacity and feature a choice of KV style and Hardox tines. The range covers machines from small tractor loaders to large capacity wheeled loaders, with users varying from small livestock units to largescale bio-gas operations. Albutt’s range of grabs was first introduced in 2005 but developments in the agricultural industry have created a demand for ever larger

The Albutt Shear Grab range.

capacity models, the company says. The Shear King range has capacities ranging from 1.4–2.5m3, for use in large livestock units and anaerobic digester facilities. Shear King features high tensile steels in its design, Hardox and Strenx, providing higher grab strength with no increase in attachment weight, maximising payload and improving operational efficiency. The company started using Hardox tines in attachments more

than 25 years ago, introducing this to the shear grab design in 2012. Hardox tines provide increased tine strength, wear resistance and reduced maintenance compared to conventional forged steel tines, it says. A clean shear to the silage clamp face is crucial to maintaining feed quality and calorific value, the company advises, so its shear grabs

feature Hardox cutting blades which can maintain a sharp edge and consistent shear performance. More recently, shear buckets have been added to its portfolio. These multi-use attachments allow the user to shear silage of all types and handle concentrate feeds with one attachment. This can bring time savings and help improve operational efficiency. ■

Dieci offers a full range of machines with a wide variety of lift capacity, lift height and engine power options unique to each model. A choice of transmissions including hydrostatic, powershift and the new vario system (giving up to 40kph road speed) allows machines to be specified to your requirements. All the Dieci telehandlers feature industry-proven Dana Spicer axles, with wet inboard brakes for maximum durability while handling

the heaviest of loads. There is a large range of additional options available, including a choice of factory-fitted headstocks for other popular makes to further expand and maximise the use of existing attachments. Dieci really has thought of everything with these machines, including subsidised finance and warranty packages to help with purchase and ownership – all of which are available via Brad Farm Machinery. ■

Telehandlers to suit any budget or requirement

As an update to the New Holland Agriculture range earlier this year, the TH series telehandlers have an alternative naming format (replacing the previous LM) as well as a brand new livery. The bright yellow colour integrates the telehandler range into the New Holland Harvesting family, and the cab interior has also been refreshed. The changes to the range aren’t just cosmetic, however. The extended offering offers 6 models and 14 versions, in order to match the specific requirements of the different farming operations. The entry-level S version, available on the TH6.32 and TH7.32,

features a 133hp engine and simple specifications for a smaller investment. The Classic version, which is available on 6m, 7m and 9m models, is designed with small livestock farmers and farmyard usage in mind. It features a limited-slip differential in the rear axle to increase the tractive effort during demanding conditions, variable placement hydraulic pump and reversible cooling fan for high efficiency. The Plus version, perfect for livestock and mixed farming operations, offers a host of comfort features including air-suspension

seat, telescopic steering column and HVAC system. Practically, an hydraulic quick coupler makes it simple and fast to change attachments. The Elite option is the best choice for large-scale livestock farmers, contractors and biomass operators. It houses a more powerful 146hp engine and additional advanced features including hydraulic pressure release, heated air-suspension seat with integrated controls, and rear cab and boom lights to enhance safe operation after dark. The entire TH Series also includes

a new transmission with electronic modulation to enhance shifting and shuttling modulation. The 4x3 version on the S and Classic models improves third gear travel on slopes and second gear operation for silage work. The 6x3 version on the Plus and Elite models allows for 2 forward/reverse shuttling modes, resulting in easier and more efficient operation and an automatic gear shifting mode for travelling. Finally, there’s a further enhancement on the Elite model with an additional automatic gear shifting and shuttling mode, further enhancing performance in yard mode. ■

‘Next generation’ telescopic loaders

The 9640 T achieves an operating weight of 8,000–9,700kg depending on the ballast. The 8620 T offers two different motor options, speeds and heights.

German loader manufacturer Schäffer says its 8620 T and 9640 T are two of the most powerful models in its range. These ‘next generation’ telescopic loaders are packed with smart features and the company’s latest efficiency systems. The 8620 T offers two different motor options, speeds and heights. The company says it has proved to be “a real hit”, as it provides a tailored

solution for larger farms, biogas plants and agricultural contractors. It has two engine options – a 75kW/102hp or 90kW/122hp Deutz engine – both of which meet the Tier 4 final emissions standard, without the need for a maintenanceintensive diesel particulate filter. This is a major advantage when it comes to operating costs, according to Schäffer.

The standard driving speed is 20kph and the loader is also available with a maximum speed of 40kph, which is a particular advantage for use outside the yard. Meanwhile, the 9640 T achieves an operating weight of 8,400–9,700kg, depending on the ballast. With a payload of up to 4,160kg, it lifts loads to a height of 5.4m. The loader is powered by

a 100kW/136hp 4-cylinder Deutz engine of the latest generation. Standard equipment includes the sensitive but powerful load-sensing working hydraulics, with a delivery volume of 145-litres/min; 24-inch tyres; and hydraulically-driven fan, which can also be used in reverse operation for easy cleaning. The company says these latest loaders use technologies that focus on a more efficient conversion of fuel into performance, while increasing driving comfort. This includes, for example, HTF (High Traction Force), which ensures maximum thrust. Electronically controlled drive SPT (Schäffer Power Transmission) comes as standard on the 8620 T and is an option for the 96-series models. Eco mode reduces the engine revs while maintaining the same speed, minimising fuel consumption. Machines in the 96 series also have the option of Schäffer’s dual clutch transmission (SDCT), which combines the advantages of a powershift transmission with those of a purely hydrostatic drive. ■

A machine to grow into, not out of John Suggitt, who runs construction, storage and farm businesses in East Yorkshire, has purchased the UK’s first Bobcat TL43.80HF telehandler to support the growth of his businesses. The new TL43.80HF was supplied by local Bobcat dealer, Scunthorpebased AMS Bobcat Limited. With a maximum lift capacity of 4.3t and a maximum lift height of almost 8m, the TL43.80HF is a new, compact telehandler offering an impressive package, combining several innovative features to take lift capacity, lifting height and breakout force to unprecedented levels for this size of machine. The combination of compactness and heavy lift capability of the TL43.80HF were key for Mr Suggitt – he commented: “I was looking for a telehandler that could lift 4.0t and offer a reach of 7m, but with the TL43.80HF, I can lift 4.3t with a lifting height approaching 8m. Being 20cm shorter than the equivalent 7m machines on the market, the TL43.80HF also gives me the compactness and productivity I need to work in the tight spaces on site and in my storage facilities. With the TL43.80HF, I have bought a machine that I intend to grow into, not out of.” Bobcat was able to minimise the dimensions of the TL43.80HF in large part due to the high stability resulting from a box-welded frame, a low load centre, long wheelbase and new massive rear counterweight. Together with a short turning radius of just 3.71m, this new Bobcat telehandler is a very manoeuvrable machine, particularly useful when working in confined areas. Complementing the compact nature of the TL43.80HF, the rough terrain capability has also been optimised with the incorporation of new heavy duty Dana Spicer axles with limited slip differential and the outstanding tractive force available of up to 90 per cent of the machine weight. AMS’ sales manager Chris Scott said: “We are delighted to have sold the first Bobcat TL43.80HF telehandler to John Suggitt. The TL43.80HF offers an unbeatable package for many applications from farming to construction, quarrying and general industry. It brings together robustness, compact dimensions, rough terrain ability and ease of use for the operator in the same machine.” As well as his other businesses, Mr Suggitt also runs a smallholding with a small show flock of Greyface Dartmoor sheep, and has storage facilities at Frodingham, where he is looking to

stockpile building materials delivered on lorries, to be used in nearby building developments. The TL43.80HF is road-registered so it can be driven between Mr Suggitt’s different businesses. Mr Suggitt explained: “The new Bobcat telehandler is fully road certified and, with a 2-speed transmission and a maximum speed of 40kph, it can be driven quickly between locations to do different work. The boom suspension system is a useful feature for road travel, keeping the boom stable and preventing it from bouncing over bumps.“ ■ John Suggitt in his Bobcat telehandler.

Torion wheel loader range set to expand a double-acting steering ram. Articulation angle is 10-degrees and the steering angle is 40-degrees, resulting in a tight inner turning circle of just 2.5m on standard tyres. At maximum articulation, the Torion 535 has a Full Turn Tipping Load (FTTL) of 3,450kg, rising to 3,850kg for the 639 model. In common with many other wheel loaders of this size, both machines are fitted with a Zettlemeyer Wide (TPZ Wide) headstock. As with other models in the Torion range, the boom has Z kinematics, which provides true parallel lift when used with buckets or pallet forks and a high tear-out force. The hydraulic system on the Torion

The Claas Torion 639 has a low overall height of less than 2.5m.

Following on from the successful introduction of Claas UK’s medium and large frame versions, two compact wheel loaders are now set to join the Torion range. The new Torion 639 and 535 feature articulated steering and a low overall height of less than 2.5m, making them ideal for use on livestock and dairy farms, or for smaller re-handling facilities. Both of these new additions are powered by Yanmar 3.3-litre, 4-cylinder

engines with power outputs of 68hp and 63hp respectively. These engines are Stage 3B compliant using the combination of a Diesel Oxidation Catalytic convertor (DOC) and Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF), without the need for Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR). Drive is through a 20kph hydrostatic transmission with two speed ranges of 0–6kph and 0–20kph, which are selected via a switch. The articulated joint incorporates

639/535 has a maximum capacity of 77-litres per minute and 70-litres per minute respectively, both with an operating pressure of 230-bar, so ensuring a fast response for quick and accurate loading. The cab features a full height front windscreen, giving excellent visibility over the front wheels and attachments fitted to the tapered boom. A rounded rear window provides clear rearward visibility. The steering column is infinitely adjustable for ease of operation and access, with all the main controls easily accessible and colour coded on the operator’s right hand side, alongside the joystick. ■

A full height windscreen allows for excellent visibility.

Stronger performance in a compact machine Building upon the success of the 3.2t lift capacity TM320 and TM320S, the TM420 from JCB brings 32 per cent more load lifting ability at 4.1t and 0.2m of additional lift height at 5.4m to more easily load high-sided diet feeders and storage bins.

The machine incorporates all the improvements and upgrades evident on the latest-specification TM320 and TM320S, including an improved cab with instruments providing daily start-up checks from the driver’s seat; LED lighting options; and self-lubricating bushes that extend

greasing intervals to 500 hours. However, to deliver its significantly increased performance and productivity potential, the new JCB TM420 also features: a regenerative hydraulics circuit giving faster boom lowering for quicker loading cycles; a tougher chassis with larger pins and bushes for the centre pivot and loader; heavier-duty JCB axles with permanent 4-wheel drive to handle the increased payload; 26-inch wheels with larger tyres to optimise traction, flotation and productivity. JCB chief innovation and growth officer Tim Burnhope said: “The new JCB TM420 delivers more performance and increased capabilities to meet customer demand for greater productivity and lower costs. “It’s as if the TM320S has been to the gym – it’s got more muscle where it counts, but remains a compact and highly manoeuvrable machine that suits anyone wanting to exploit the performance and durability of a wheeled loader with the versatility of a telescopic handler.” ■

An extra 0.2m of lift height makes loading high-sided feeders and storage bins easier.

The TM420 has the performance of a wheeled loader with the versatility of a telescopic handler.

Increased payloads are possible due to heavier-duty axles and permanent 4-wheel drive.

Henry Brown’s Vintage Diary

Farmers Guide 25 Years Ago Ernest Cozens’ Out and About page in the November 1994 Farmers Guide commented on the demise of the Milk Marketing Board after some 61 years, and that further outbreaks of Rhizomania had been found in the East Anglian sugar beet crop. John Deere announced 13 new machines. They included four new 8000 series tractors with 185–228hp power units along with new models of baler, mower and forage harvester. John Deere had also completed a marketing agreement with Renault resulting in four new John Deere 3000 Series Renault-built tractors that were replacing the earlier 50 Series models. Prices started at £19,642 for the 55hp 2-wheel drive 3100. With the Smithfield Show on the horizon, several pages were devoted to the latest tractors and machinery at Earls Court. Armer Salmon would be exhibiting a new six row self-propelled

4-wheel steer Moreau Voltra tanker sugar beet harvester with a 360hp DSAF power unit and an 18t holding tank which could be unloaded in 30 seconds. Richie Farm Equipment announced a new big bale collector and Martin Lishman was introducing a range of Evans & Pearce Electro-Broadcasters capable of throwing slug pellets up to “an incredible 100ft”. Ferrag launched the Rau Ferrag Terramax 3 and 6m spring tine cultivators with front and rear crumblers and Lamborghini would be showing the latest Formula Limited models. The top of the range Formula Limited 135 had a £45,550 price tag. Claas told the Farmers Guide that since introducing their first selfpropelled forage harvester in 1972 they had now made in excess of 10,000 machines. A special Materials Handling feature reminded readers that mast type fork trucks, originally designed for the construction industry, had appeared on UK farms in the 1970s and the first telescopic loaders had arrived in the early 80s. ■

Haymaking in the ʼ50s After the grass had been cut by a reciprocating knife mower, either a rake bar, rotating head or finger wheel swath turner was used to turn or spread the swaths and, when dry, the swaths were rowed up ready for baling. Several companies including Dening of Chard, Lister Blackstone, Massey-Harris and Ransomes were making rake bar swath turners and side delivery rakes in the 1950s. They had four or five land-wheel driven tined rake bars working sideways across the swath. The centre section of the tine bars was removed for swath turning and replaced for side delivery raking. Lely made the first finger wheel swathers and side delivery rakes in Holland in 1948. The finger wheels were mounted on two parallel frames and could

be used to turn, spread or row up the swath. Rotating head machines made by Bamfords, Massey-Harris and others, had two or three rotating heads which could be set to turn in the same direction for swath turning and contra rotate when putting two swaths together ready for the baler. ■

The Massey-Harris rotating head swath turner could be used for swath turning or side delivery raking.

Eric Young retires at age 90 Farm and garden machinery dealership J T Friskney has closed its doors after more than a century in business. Managing director Eric Young made the decision to retire at the age of 90 following the loss of his wife and a decline in health. The company was founded by Tom Friskney in 1909 and taken over by Mr Young in the 1950s. He and his late wife Gwen

built up the business over time, initially concentrating on Ford, County Tractors and Ransome. As times changed, so did the company, with the takeover of Grattons of Boston in 1985. Ford was the main force from the 60s to the 90s and at the turn of the century, New Holland said they wanted large dealers to meet the needs of their customers, so they terminated the franchise. J T Friskney took on a new challenge – Deutz and Manitou – and in 2006, the company diversified into contracting.

New leadership for T H White Agriculture T H White Agriculture has announced David Rapkins as divisional director, following 13 years with CNHi where he attained the position of senior director - global product management. He brings a wealth of expertise in after-sales, technical support and customer care. Based at Knockdown (Tetbury), David will assume responsibility for all eight T H White Agricultural branches offering machinery sales, service and parts for key franchises including New Holland, Case IH, Manitou, Kuhn, Väderstad, Pöttinger, and McConnel. David heads up a restructured senior leadership team comprising operations director Adrian Lovegrove, sales director Ray Bennett and commercial director James Ashworth. During his time at CNHi David worked on both New

Holland and Case IH – key brands for T H White – although his agricultural experience stretches far beyond the corporate world and embraces a strong element of hands-on experience. From a young age David grew up around mixed farms, helping out at evenings and weekends when not at school. His formal agricultural education began at Wiltshire College, Lackham, and culminated in an honours degree from the Royal Agricultural University in Farm Mechanisation and Business Management. Right through his higher education he continued working on farms, developing his skills and moving on to work for agricultural contractors in the UK and overseas. Part of his mission in the new role will be to feed back the voice of customers to suppliers, using his connections with CNHi to lobby for T H WHITE customer involvement in technology trials.

Send in no more than 150 words and a (head and shoulders) picture of the person in question to (email) rachel.hicks@farmersguide.co.uk.

All change at BASF Agriculture A change to the leadership team at BASF’s UK headquarters has seen two new appointments, after former business director Michael Wagner moved into a new leadership role in Limburgerhof, Germany. Neil Kay, currently head of marketing, will take over from Mr Wagner as agricultural solutions business director for UK and Ireland. Replacing Mr Kay will be Ben Miles, who has worked with BASF for four years, including in the company’s xarvio digital services and AgriTech investments. He previously held positions with Syngenta, including eight years in Australia and New Zealand. Prior to working in the agricultural division, Mr Kay spent a number of years in Germany, working for BASF’s distribution organisation as a sales manager, before leading a European business unit. As a former chemist, Mr Kay is passionate about innovation and has been the driving force behind the company’s ‘go to market’ strategy. He has been responsible for developing new ways of approaching industry challenges – including, for example, the company’s trials network, the

Real Results Circle. Mr Kay is keen to foster both stability and innovation at a time when the agricultural community needs both in equal measure. “Farmers have a diverse range of skills and multitude of things to manage; we are committed to working with them, in partnership with their advisors, to help gear their businesses for the future,” he said. “There is a great deal of scope to grow profitable farming businesses by investing in attention to detail, new technologies and partnerships. “BASF is committed to agriculture globally and is investing in its future technologies.” Commenting on his new role, Mr Miles said: “We’re entering an exciting time for our business with the launch of Revysol and Luximo over the coming seasons. An important part of our role in introducing these new products will be ensuring sound stewardship, including the use of integrated crop management practices like the use of varietal disease resistance, using pre-planting weed control and drilling dates so as to not overuse of the chemistry. “Both molecules are coming at an important time, given the loss of other important active ingredients and the growing challenge of resistance to chemistry.”

About People Two senior appointments at CF Fertilisers

Clive Roads, partner at McCartneys, has won the 2019 Mart’s the Heart Auctioneer Lifetime Achievement award, which forms part of the British Farming Awards, in recognition of his 45 influential years in the industry. The judges praised Clive for the pivotal role he has played in the growth of Worcester livestock market – taking it from the brink of closure to a very successful commercial and pedigree centre – over the last four decades. “I was very humbled to even be considered for the award,” Mr Roads explained. “So, I feel extremely privileged to have won

In order to focus on the changing needs of farmers, CF Fertilisers has created two new seniorlevel roles. Nick Ericson has joined the team as head of sales, while Dr George Fisher (below) is head of marketing. The move forms part of a business-wide initiative to align the company with a changing agricultural landscape. A key element of future development, according to Mr Ericson, will be integrating the company’s regional commercial teams, agronomy resources and distributor partners more closely. Balancing environmental responsibility with superior production efficiency underpins the company’s commercial product offering, he added.

this prestigious accolade. “I truly believe that what I’ve achieved during my time in the profession has only been made possible by the people I have worked with. The award is therefore as much for them as it is for me.” Aside from his work at McCartneys’ Worcester livestock market, Clive is official society auctioneer for numerous cattle and sheep breed societies, chairman of the Three Counties Agricultural Society, a regular judge at livestock shows and supporter of local charities. Clive was officially presented with his award at the British Farming Awards on 17th October 2019.

New appointments at ScanStone ScanStone Potato Systems has appointed Craig Thomson as its new area manager for Scotland. Craig has worked in the industry for most of his career. He now covers Scotland with the entire ScanStone product range and is in charge of dealing with customers and dealers in the area. All product demonstrations are organised through Craig and, with his extensive knowledge and experience of machinery, they are often conducted by him as well. The complete Tong product range is also dealt with by ScanStone in Scotland. Satellite depots in Turriff and Muir of Ord help to ease the spring and harvest time pressure for Craig, with parts being readily available in both of these locations.

Sales and service person Stephen Hesleden has also been taken on to maintain the area of Lincolnshire and to offer help to the newly appointed Yorkshire dealer, Y&H Agri. He will be following on from Steve Cooper, who has worked for the company for the past 15 years. Stephen has a wealth of knowledge and skills in machinery and service work, coupled with a growing customer base in the area. He will be working closely with Steve Cooper to gather knowledge and information on ScanStone’s products and customer base in Lincolnshire and Yorkshire. Stephen has so far visited Sweden and Australia to assist dealers with service work and starting off new machines.

Dr Fisher, who has an established background in top level ‘science into practice’ roles, said his new role will be as much about identifying future production requirements as communication. Commercial director Sam Bell, who was appointed earlier this year, explained: “These are challenging times for everybody in the agricultural industry as we move to more sustainable farming systems. Continuing to develop strategies that meet the fertiliser demands of growers and legislators, while delivering maximum efficiency in the field, is top priority for CF. “Nitrogen fertiliser has an ongoing and essential role to play in addressing future global food demand and CF’s continued investment in research, manufacturing efficiency and knowledge exchange is essential in developing this responsibly and effectively.”

Farmer gets award for mental health work NFU president Minette Batters (right) presenting Patrick’s award to his wife, Zanna.

Norfolk poultry farmer Patrick Joice has been named Farming Champion of the Year, after he raised tens of thousands of pounds for charity while battling depression and cancer. Patrick raised £53,000 at a charity cricket match for the You Are Not Alone (YANA) project, which offers mental health services for the farming community. He suffered from depression after being given a diagnosis of terminal cancer last year, but was determined that something good would come of his struggles. He also became involved with the global ‘Naked Farmer’ movement on social

media, which tackles the stigma surrounding mental health. Shortly before he passed away in September, Patrick was presented with his award in person by National Farmers’ Union (NFU) president Minette Batters. His wife Zanna attended an awards ceremony on his behalf in October. Commenting on the award, Mrs Batters said: “While this is an incredibly sad time for Patrick’s family and everyone who knew him, it’s important to acknowledge and celebrate the incredible leadership he demonstrated raising awareness of, and funds for, mental health issues. “He showed great bravery sharing his own experiences and getting involved with the ‘Naked Farmer’ social media movement resonated with farmers everywhere. He has been an inspiration and leaves a legacy that will change many lives for years to come; a legacy which his family can be hugely proud of.”
