“The Orbital’s output is excellent. I have the ability to keep up with multiple balers thanks to the increase in wrapping speed. I can easily wrap 1,000 bales in a day.” Chris Bartlett has been running a contract wrapping business since 2011, whilst also farming beef cattle and sheep on 100 acres. In 2016, he purchased one of the first McHale Orbital High Speed Round Bale Wrappers in the UK and wraps around 7,500 bales with it each year. Chris was very happy with the performance and reliability of his previous McHale wrappers but wanted to increase output, “I wanted more output, it was as simple as that so hence my reason to buy the McHale Orbital.” Chris told us what he likes about the Orbital, “There are a number of nice features on it; the loading and carrying of a bale saves a lot of time. The Orbital’s output is excellent. I have the ability to keep up with multiple balers thanks to the increase in wrapping speed. The majority of my customers want 6 layers of wrap applied, so when doing this, I can wrap a bale with 6 layers in under 25 seconds. It is a massive improvement for me and my business. I can easily wrap 1,000 bales in a day.” Chris told us that a number of other factors influenced his decision to purchase a McHale Orbital, “McHale machines are well built, last the longest and the proof was in the resale value of my old McHale wrappers. You can’t beat the build quality against other makes so it was an easy decision.”

With Farmers Guide editor Rachel Hicks and the team

1 Some of the team on the morning of Lamma ’20, day one. The show was excellent this year, and we were all impressed by the new products and technology on display. 2 At Farmers Guide we are really proud of our team, and celebrated the end of a great 2019 with a delicious Christmas meal at The Forge . 3 Machinery editor David Williams stomped up a storm around the Lamma ’20 halls, interviewing lots of companies and taking pictures of the latest kit on the stands for our indepth show review, which you’ll find on page 40. 4 Production editor Sarah Kidby immersed herself fully into the Lamma atmosphere, even donning a virtual reality headset on one stand. 5 David Williams spent a day at a farm in Suffolk to discuss how the beet harvest across 1,200ha is managed using a six-row HoImer harvester.

Welcome to the February issue of Farmers Guide. It’s been a hectic few weeks, as we started the month (and the year!) with a bang by attending the Lamma ’20 show, hosted at the NEC in Birmingham for the second year running. With the number of morning visitors impacted by the M6 being closed for two hours during rush hour, the show got progressively busier throughout the first day and, by the end, it was absolutely heaving. The second day was just as well attended. Set out across 11 completely packed-out halls, it’s safe to say I hit my 10,000 steps for the day within just the first few hours! At Lamma ’20 we took the opportunity to catch up with as many key brands and new launches as we could, in order to report on the latest technology to hit the market. Walking around in our Farmers Guide branded jackets, we also had quite a few readers come up to speak to us, which we always appreciate and enjoy. If you ever see us out and about, please do come over and say hello. If you weren’t able to attend yourself, you’ll find a 10-page review of this year’s show starting on page 40. Our marketing manager, K.M Sharp, also created a fantastic walk-through video of the entire event, which you can watch on the Farmers Guide Facebook page. Machinery editor David Williams has barely had time to set foot in the office this month. In addition to Lamma, David also attended dealer open days in East Anglia (see page 32) and Staffordshire (see page 67), as well as visiting a sugar beet farm in Suffolk to find out how the family-run business manages a 1,200ha harvest with its six-row Holmer harvester. You’ll find his full write-up in ’Making light work of a difficult season’ on page 84. David also tried out some new drone technology created by a UK-based company, which should prove more accessible to the average farm than previous offerings – turn to page 65 for ’Drone technology – cutting edge but becoming affordable’.

I’d also like to take the opportunity to say happy new year, albeit slightly late. It’s clear that 2019 was a difficult year for farming due in part to political unrest, media propaganda and the inclement weather, but hopefully 2020 will be kinder. For us personally at Farmers Guide, we ended on a high note with 2019 being our 40th year, and celebrated with a Christmas lunch for the whole team. Our aim this year is to continue to create a magazine that our readers enjoy, and as such we would welcome any feedback you may have. On page 129, you’ll see that we’re inviting you, as our readers, to give help and advice to other farmers, as well as to share your viewpoints on relevant topics that are hitting the headlines. We create this magazine for you, and we’d love for you to be involved.

And finally... At the Friday night church service, Alan goes over to his friend Robin and says: ”I need to ask a favour... I’m sleeping with the vicar’s wife, and what I'd like you to do after the service is chat to the vicar and delay him for about an hour.” Robin reluctantly agrees, but certainly isn’t comfortable with the idea. When the service ends, Robin approaches the vicar and asks him a series of pointless questions. The wise old vicar thinks for a moment, then puts his arm around Robin and asks: ”Now, young man. Why don’t you tell me what it is that’s bothering you?” ”Well,” says Robin. ”It’s like this – my mate Alan is having an affair with your wife, and talked me into delaying you from getting home for a while. I’m really sorry, I know I shouldn’t have agreed to it.” The vicar gives Robin a squeeze on the shoulder and says: ”If I was you, young man, I’d hurry home as my wife died two years ago.” Thank you to Leo Antonaci from Norfolk for this great joke!

The biggest issue in farming – mental health It’s no secret that the farming life can be hard work. What is often kept quiet, however, is the strain on farmers’ mental health as a result. Rachel Hicks reports. For farmers, the general day-to-day situation of long hours, isolation and financial pressure can be stressful enough, but in the face of sudden and uncontrollable factors like adverse weather conditions, the loss of vital chemical treatments and a difficult political climate with an unstable trade system, their vulnerabilities are particularly apparent. However, despite these challenges giving rise to a huge mental and physical load, there seems to be a long-standing stigma when it comes to talking about mental health issues, particularly in the farming culture. This means that many people have a limited understanding of the issues, making it difficult for them to recognise the signs or to talk about their concerns to family, peers or professionals.

We are now beginning to see a real move towards acknowledging mental health as one of the significant challenges facing the UK farming community.

According to research by the Farm Safety Foundation, four out of five young farmers (under 40) believe that mental health is the biggest hidden problem today. The DPJ Foundation in Wales has published an even more shocking statistic – one agricultural worker in the UK takes their own life each week. That’s 52 deaths per year. In 2018, the Farm Safety Foundation launched the Mind Your Head campaign, alongside the Yellow Wellies Who Would Fill Your Boots initiative – both of which aim to ensure the next generation of farmers is equipped with the skills and knowledge to live well in order to farm well. More recently, the Farming Community Network (FCN) announced the new online service

‘Farmwell’. Free for all to use, it provides ready access to a wide range of support and help to anyone who may need it. FCN chief executive Charles Smith (pictured left) said: “As an organisation that has been supporting Britain’s farming community for almost 25 years, we now plan to be even more focussed on helping farmers build personal and business resilience.” Aarun Naik (right) (www. strong-heart.co.uk) is a counsellor and agri-psychotherapist with a background in the farming industry. As a 2015 Nuffield Farming Scholar, Aarun published a report entitled, ‘Supporting farmer wellbeing: addressing mental health in agriculture and horticulture.’ Farmers Guide asked Aarun if there had been any developments in this area since his 2016 report, to which he replied: “The main thing I would say is that we are now beginning to see a real move towards acknowledging mental health as one of the significant challenges facing the UK farming community. With this there seems to be a growing willingness as an industry to talk about the issue and start to question how we can address the challenge. “For instance, the leaders of major organisations such as the NFU are becoming really engaged in this debate, which we would not have seen five years ago. We have also seen the creation of the Farm Safety Foundation as a national organisation dedicated to supporting the physical and mental wellbeing of the UK farmers. One strand of my own work involves delivering workshops in mental health awareness, stress management and resilience for farmers and agri-professionals across the country. This year I have seen a real increase in demand for such training and a diverse range of professions from farming and rural

trades wanting to engage and learn more.” The general consensus is that, in order to help farmers who may be quietly struggling, the industry needs to talk about mental health more openly in order to erode some of the taboo that’s built up over the years, as well as making it easier and more convenient for people to ask for help. For example, livestock markets such as Melton Mowbray have diversified to offer drop-in clinics to make seeking help more convenient to farmers who work long hours and can’t always plan ahead in terms of appointments. The DPJ Foundation in Wales funds counsellors to visit farms and deliver counselling on the farm premises. Of course, it’s also important to develop systems aimed at preventing mental health issues in the first place. Some land-based colleges are ensuring they educate the future generations in this area, equipping them with the skills and understanding to manage their mental health and wellbeing, which is key when it comes to facing the stresses of a farming career in the future. What farmers need first and foremost is to be encouraged to acknowledge the importance of looking after themselves – both physically and mentally – in order to be able to look after their farm and family. The same level of dedication should be given to this as it is to livestock, crops and machinery. As Aarun concludes: “It would be great to get to a point where issues such as stress and mental health are spoken about easily and openly as some of the other, more familiar, everyday farming challenges.” If you are concerned about your mental health or that of someone you know, you can access free, impartial and confidential support from both the Farming Community Network & RABI, as well as RSABI (Scotland) and the Addington Fund (Housing Support) via Farming Help.

Grain & Fertiliser Advice

It’s time to show that UK crops offer real value at home and abroad The first of this year’s Grain & Fertiliser advice columns is provided initially by Openfield’s head of compliance, shipping & research, Cecilia Pryce, and then fertiliser manager Lucy Hassall. A new year always brings many opportunities and uncertainties, but I feel the UK has had more than its fair share in recent years. This year we face the continued uncertainty around Brexit but have the new challenge – the transition period. Since the start of January there have been two documents published; ‘Getting Brexit Done’ (https://view.pagetiger.com/ MyOpenfield/gettingbrexitdone) and the latest update of the ‘UK Agricultural Bill’ (https://view. pagetiger.com/MyOpenfield/ agriculturalbillshortsummary) – both need to be understood by every farmer in the UK. Nothing in negotiations is ever a given, as we have seen one deadline in this modern world seems to be able to be superseded by another but, at some point, the music could stop and would your grain marketing be ready to deal with it? I mention this because harvest 2020 could be a new experience for us all. Not only will we have the relative uncertainty of crops size, due to a ridiculously wet autumn and winter (shown in the chart is the increase in rainfall from September to December last year) but we will yet again have the issue of more trade uncertainties from 1st January 2021. The latest Agricultural Bill now mentions food security, but I am not sure food security is packaged directly with self-sufficiency. It’s more a function of knowing you

have enough trading partners to import from if: 1) You’re hungry; 2) You have the ability to pay; and 3) Maybe you aren’t as concerned about the ‘pedigree’ of your product, more of accepting a case of ‘you get what you get and you don’t get upset’. All the above brings me to the importance of growers understanding fully all the timelines involved and the impact that trade agreements could have. These agreements are likely to come in many forms; be that equivalent legislation, technical barriers or unintended consequences imposed due to lack of joined up thinking. Rest assured there is likely to be a bumpy path ahead of which the impact will only be fully felt once walked. Price in any situation like this will be key – farmers and buyers alike will need to fully understand trade agreements while knowing what every commodity‘s full worth is. This full worth could be the grain's quality, available tonnage, location or even field spray records. Now is not the time to rest on your

post-Brexit, no more EU legislation laurels. We will all need to be able to show with confidence what we have used to grow our crops, how they were stored and transported and even their carbon footprint. If growers and buyers can show we have a better product, with better pedigree, we should be able to educate our own domestic marketplace and show others that UK commodities have a real value in global and domestic markets.

Fertiliser matters After the autumn deluge, January has shown us glimpses of settled weather allowing drilling to progress on kinder soils. Along with this, the fertiliser market has presented growers with a buying

opportunity, with prices easing since the turn of the year. At some point it is likely prices will firm as we get closer to the application window and logistics come into play. With the majority of crops planted being later than planned, into less than ideal conditions, these crops will require an early application of nitrogen to encourage early growth and tillering as soon as an opportunity to travel presents itself. With very few P&K fertilisers being applied to date and a large spring drilling workload, one consideration may be the use of NPKS complex compounds to allow the number of passes through a crop to be reduced while still providing its nutrient requirements.

Launch of 2020 UK Pesticide Guide

Spaldings to distribute original Grimme parts

Newly updated, the UK Pesticide Guide is the authoritative reference for all pesticide products and adjuvants approved for use in agriculture, amenity, forestry and horticulture. According to UK Pesticide Guide editor Martin Lainsbury: “This is the 33rd edition of The UK Pesticide Guide and 2019 has been a year which has seen the impending loss of a number of key active ingredients. The loss that worries me the most is the loss of chlorothalonil – this multi-site fungicide is not only used alone but also in mixture with a large number of other fungicide actives because the multi-site nature of its activity means that it is virtually impossible for fungi to develop resistance to it.’ More information including how to order can be found at www.bcpc.org.

Original replacement parts for Grimme potato and root crop machinery are to be distributed by aftermarket specialist Spaldings throughout the UK and Ireland, to complement the service provided by Grimme’s established dealer networks. The collaboration marks a new approach for both companies as machinery manufacturers face increasing competition for their parts business from makers of non-genuine alternatives. Announcing details at the company’s dealer conference, Grimme UK managing director Patrick Graf Grote said: “Over the years, Grimme

Major machinery auctions to take place

dealers have done a great job of supporting our customers in all areas, in particular with aftersales support. This great service will continue to grow throughout our dealer network – and will be enhanced through our agreement with Spaldings

because it will extend our parts distribution reach to areas of the UK and Ireland beyond our existing network.” Patrick Graf Grote is pictured above (on the right) with Spaldings managing director Steve Constable (on the left).

Strutt & Parker (Farms) Ltd is set to hold one of the biggest single active farm dispersal auctions, as it disposes of much of its current machinery in order to re-equip for 2020. Its current fleet includes top quality modern machinery from leading manufacturers such as John Deere, JCB, Claas, Massey Ferguson, New Holland and others. Agricultural machinery auctioneers, Clarke & Simpson of Framlingham, have been instructed to undertake the sale, which will take place over two days on 2nd and 3rd June, at two sites in Suffolk and Essex. Catalogues will be available to download from the auctioneer’s website five weeks before the sale. There will also be live online bidding via www.i-bidder.com

Openfield continues to deliver profitability

BASF moving its UK headquarters

Companies to continue to operate independently

Global chemical company, BASF, will be moving its UK headquarters to Stockport town centre later this year, after signing to take 21,500sq. ft at 2 Stockport Exchange. BASF has 13 locations across the UK, eight of them manufacturing sites and about 850 employees. BASF UK managing director Richard Carter said: “We are looking forward to moving to this exciting new ‘connected’ location later this year. Our new office space in Stockport Exchange will feature an open and collaborative workspace to enable new and more agile ways of working.”

Following the recent announcement on 5th January by ChemChina and Sinochem that they are consolidating their agricultural businesses into a new holding company, which will be called the Syngenta Group Co., Adama has today confirmed that

of £0.6m for the year to 30 June 2019 in line with expectations in another challenging year. Commenting on this performance, Openfield’s chairman Philip Moody said: “I’m very pleased to see Openfield has maintained and slightly improved its profitability. We have worked hard to improve our

– will further bolster the alignment between the companies, enabling them to capitalise on the value creation and synergistic opportunities in the fields of crop protection, seeds, fertilisers and additional agricultural and digital technologies.

News in brief New generation of self-propelled sprayer On 1st January 2020, a new generation of Condor selfpropelled sprayers rolled off the Agrifac production line. A number of improvements have been made in line with Agrifac’s ’4 Es for growers’ concept – Efficient, Economical, Ergonomic and Ecological. A Stage 5 engine was chosen so that the strictest emission standards can be met, LED lighting is fitted as standard, plus the machine has an improved driveline which offers even better reliability. In addition, there have been a lot of small improvements that further improve

convenience and operation. Visually, the Condor V design has been updated in line

The portal also enables collection of digital manuals and documentation directly in an iPad-based control system (Vaderstad E-Control). When downloading a document or media, it will be stored in the Vaderstad E-Control app, which can be accessed when working offline. The new integrated portal will be available via a free software update of the control system.

A free trailer safety towing app has been developed by Tilly Pass. By law, every employer must make sure that work equipment is maintained in efficient working order and in good repair. Inspections can range from drivers carrying out start-up safety checks before using the vehicle to regular preventative maintenance inspections carried out based on time or mileage. The Head to Tow app gives quick and easy access to manufacturers’ daily, monthly and preseason checks at the click of a button. By making this information readily available the employer and employees can more accurately identify problems which may happen while the vehicle is in use and carry out appropriate checks while developing a proper system of maintenance.

Fungicide performance under the spotlight The 2020 spring fungicide campaign is nearly upon us – and the AHDB Agronomists’ Conference provided some useful pointers for cereal fungicide performance during the previous year, including data on brand new chemistry. Dominic Kilburn writes. ADAS principal research scientist Jonathan Blake (right) began his presentation of fungicide performance in wheat (2019) with a focus on key disease septoria tritici, comparing straight products and SDHI/azole mixtures in a protectant situation (across five trials). Proline (prothioconazole) provided moderate levels of control in 2019, while Imtrex (fluxapyroxad) was a little more effective – with Mr Blake reminding delegates that, on farm, Imtrex can only be used in mixture with at least one fungicide with an alternative mode of action that has efficacy against the target disease.

Moving across to the mixture products, two standard SDHI/azoles were compared; with Ascra Xpro (bixfen + fluopyram + prothioconazole) showing a little separation from Elatus Era (benzovindiflupyr + prothioconazole) over the past year. “New product Revystar XE (mefentrifluconazole + fluxapyroxad) performed very well within these trials to the point where even a half dose of Revystar, in a protectant situation, was doing more than a full dose of either Ascra Xpro or Elatus Era. “Mefentrifluconazole is a strong new active ingredient,” pointed out Mr Blake. In mixed protectant and curative septoria trials in 2019 (across four trials), it was a similar picture but with Imtrex a little closer to Proline in overall performance, and Ascra Xpro tracking closer to Revystar in the mixtures.

even at quite low rates, providing a high level of control from what is being seen from Ascra Xpro and Elatus Era, said Mr Blake. In septoria yield trials (2019) – which he said was a tough test of product persistence – of the singles, Proline and Imtrex performed similarly. However, for the mixtures, Revystar has given an additional 0.3t/ ha yield lift compared with Ascra Xpro and Elatus Era. The same advantage from Revystar was seen in the three-year (2017–2019) yield trials, he added.

Yellow rust Mr Blake said that yellow rust in wheat was widespread in 2019 and with a large number of varieties assessed by the RL, accordingly some ratings have changed – including Zyatt from an 8 to 7, Bennington (6 to 5) and Viscount (7 to 6).

Curative activity

Wheat disease septoria.

Bravo (chlorothalonil) was also included in these trials and even at half label rate (1-litre/ha) it was providing more control than a full dose of prothioconazole and comparable efficacy to Imtrex – quite a shift in the performance of these two products, he suggested.

Mr Blake said that curative trials (2019), which focused on the lower leaves well below those that usually receive a spray, provided products with a very tough test. “In a curative situation, we don’t get a huge amount out of Proline or fluxapyroxad any more. When we look at the mixtures, Ascra Xpro and Elatus Era are tracking quite similarly and we are still seeing an advantage from Revystar,” he noted. Over three years (2017–2019), the picture is the same with Revystar,

Yellow rust in wheat was widespread in 2019.

He highlighted research work carried out in the past by his ADAS colleague, Peter Gladders, which came to the conclusion that late sowing is a factor for an increase in yellow rust in the spring. “And so, for those growers that have drilled late this season, it’s one to watch out for,” he commented. Yellow rust fungicide trials in 2019 (Terrington, Norfolk), using susceptible variety Reflection, confirmed that Bassoon (epoxiconazole) is still very active and “doing a good job” on yellow rust even at quarter or half rates. “Prothioconazole is close behind, showing good activity and is more effective than either Comet (pyraclostrobin) or Amistar (azoxystrobin) – the two strobilurins we tested in 2019. “Imtrex adds some activity to yellow rust but isn’t quite up to the same level of activity as of Amistar, Comet or the azoles,” he added.

In terms of the mixtures, Mr Blake said that Revystar adds something over Imtrex (one of the partner products it contains) but is not quite as strong as the SDHI/azoles in Ascra Xpro and Elatus Era, which both track the same path and provide good yellow rust control. “We noticed that some treatments do give us four weeks’ control of yellow rust rather than three; Elatus Era is one that is highly active and offers more persistency of control, and we see the reverse rank order in this trial for the mixtures that we saw in the equivalent septoria yield trials. “Over the three-year yellow rust yield trials, Elatus Era again stands out with its persistent control.”

Brown rust As with yellow rust, there have been some brown rust resistance score changes on the new RL, including Firefly (8 to 6) and Viscount (9 to 8), however Skyscraper and Spotlight increased their ratings from 5 to 6 and 6 to 7 respectively. Brown rust was slow to develop in 2019 following a cool spring, commented Mr Blake, and in trials featuring susceptible variety Crusoe, Comet did a reasonable job. “Proline is not very active on brown rust and while Imtrex is not good on yellow rust, it has good activity on brown rust. “Across the mixtures, therefore, anything featuring fluxapyroxad – Librax (fluxapyroxad + metconazole) and Revystar – also showed good activity in trials. “At full rate, Ascra Xpro did a decent job but it may be a case of adding something to it in high pressure brown rust situations.” Yield results broadly reflected what was seen in control trials, with Elatus Era and Revystar the leading actives on brown rust.

Fusarium Comparing Proline, Soleil (bromuconazole + tebuconazole) and multisite fungicide Unizeb Gold (mancozeb) in two-year fusarium trials, Mr Blake suggested that the latter reduced fusarium head blight quite well, while the bromuconazole (in Soleil) added to tebuconazole’s activity. Soleil’s activity on fusarium tracked closely to that of prothioconazole, he added. DON (deoxynevalenol) levels coming out of these trials were also continued over…

SDHI and azole efficacy

and T2 regular products should do enough to keep the disease in check.”

looked at, according to Mr Blake, who said that Proline halved the level of DON, while Unizeb Gold did very little. “Mancozeb has good activity on microdochiums but not on true fusariums. However, microdochiums can affect yield and cause headblight symptoms and so mancozeb might have a place in a T3 strategy, used in combination with other actives if targeting fusarium and microdochium. “Soleil reduced DON levels compared with prothioconazole this year, which perhaps suggests that bromuconazole is adding something additional in terms of fusarium control.”

Powdery mildew Reassuringly, Mr Blake pointed out that there are a number of products which have good activity on powdery mildew, including Proline and fluxapyroxad in Imtrex. “All of the SDHI/azoles we tested looked to be controlling powdery mildew fairly effectively, with between 60–80 per cent control from a half label rate. “Maybe powdery mildew-specific products should be considered in high pressure situations, but at T1

Turning to barley, he said that the picture seen for a long time with rhynchosporium remained the same in that there are several products with good activity, making the disease straightforward to control. Both fluxapyroxad and prothioconazole do a decent job on rhynchosporium, even at half label rate, and any products containing these two actives perform well. “Strobilurin Comet has good activity and, in the mixtures, Priaxor (fluxapryroxad + pryaclostrobin), Siltra Xpro (bixafen + prothioconazole) and Elatus Era are all also doing a good job at quite low rates. “It is reassuring that they are all working well,” Mr Blake commented. Where tan spot was seen in 2019, it was effectively controlled with a quarter dose of Proline while Siltra Xpro gave good control. Imtrex showed useful activity as well, he added. Mr Blake pointed out that prothioconazole controls powdery mildew in barley at the quarter rate, and this factor has precluded the need for any mildew specific products. “However, if there is a requirement for this then Cyflamid (cyflufenamid) is very active on powdery mildew, perhaps more so than Talius (proquinazid). Imtrex, when used, will also add activity. “Unsurprisingly, mixtures containing prothioconazole, including Elatus Era and Siltra Xpro, look very active on that pathogen.”

Net blotch Mr Blake said that the main change with net blotch is the dose rate at which good control is achieved.



Make every granule count EASY TO U SE


While it is clear that since 2003 there has been a gradual shift in the sensitivity of septoria populations to SDHIs, Rothamsted early season monitoring trials (2019) using SDHI Bixafen have shown a smaller shift than seen in previous years, explained Mr Blake. “There was a large shift between 2017 and 2018, but less so between 2018 and 2019,” he said. “Farmers certainly noticed that there was a loss of control in the field during 2019 but that may have been due to higher disease pressure. “We think that populations are now dominated by moderately insensitive strains – T79N and N86S – which are dominating but not increasing. “Of slight concern however is the H152R isolate which could possibly be increasing and is a worry for the future,” he added. Looking at Imtrex over four years (2015-2019), Mr Blake pointed out that in 2015 it achieved 90 per cent control on average from full or half label rates, and now that was closer to 60 per cent control, however there has not been a significant shift in sensitivity in the past year. Of the activity of SDHIs mixtures (2015–2019), he suggested that there has been a decline but this has been gradual. “In recent years there has been a slight separation of SDHI azoles within Elatus Era which is slightly less effective now compared with 2017.” Rothamsted early season monitoring of epoxiconazole and prothioconazole (2019) was almost identical to 2018 in that no further evolution of these azoles was seen. “This is reassuring me that we may have reached the point where the CYP 51 enzyme isn’t mutating any further and isn’t able to develop any further resistance to azoles. If that is the case, the decline in performance of prothioconazole and epoxiconazole may level off. “Prothioconazole continues to offer 35–40 per cent control in a protectant situation and if there is some stabilisation then we are hopeful it may continue to protect new chemistry going forward.”

“There are a range of actives providing a good level of control; including Imtrex, Proline and Comet, and, while mixtures Siltra Xpro and Elatus Era used to give us very good control at the half label rates or even lower, we now think that you may have to apply more to get that level of control. “We are seeing a gradual change in sensitivity of populations to SDHIs and azoles and, in high pressure situations with net blotch, there is a need to apply higher doses to maintain control. “We also see that in terms of yield, where there may be a need to apply above the half label rate to

achieve an adequate yield response,” he advised. Mr Blake concluded with ramularia – a disease he said was a key pathogen in winter and spring barley and which, for now, was well controlled by chlorothalonil at quarter or half rates. For 2019 trials, Revystar was compared alongside Proline and chlorothalonil and Mr Blake said that it adds useful activity, perhaps offering an alternative to CTL once it’s gone, although unlikely at the same price as a half rate of Bravo, he suggested. “Interestingly, in the past we’ve seen less activity from Proline but in 2019 it did add some activity to ramularia control.” FG

A new dawn for cereal disease control

A new cereal fungicide boasting greater protection of crops against septoria, as well as providing yield improvement, seems to have arrived just in time for growers and agronomists. Dominic Kilburn reports. In light of the well-documented decline in triazole efficacy against key cereal disease septoria, the imminent loss of multi-site fungicide chlorothalonil and the evolving picture of SDHI resistance, BASF’s launch of a new cereal fungicide couldn’t have come at a better time for UK growers, believes the company. Revystar XE has received authorisation on all cereal crops and, according to BASF, offers an “impressive leap” in the control of septoria in wheat over current products, while also delivering improved yields. Other diseases controlled on its broad-spectrum label include yellow and brown rust, as well as net blotch, rhynchosporium and ramularia in barley. In addition, BASF believes its product will play a key role in protecting SDHI chemistry for the future. Revystar XE is based on new active ingredient Revysol (mefentrifluconazole) and Xemium (fluxapyroxad) – the latter already found in BASF’s SDHI portfolio of Adexar and Librax. However, according to the company’s senior principal scientist, fungicide development, Dr Rosie Bryson (pictured right), Revysol – the first isopropanol azole on the market – is unique in the way it binds to the fungus, providing reliable control of all known strains of septoria. “Revysol has a flexible conformation which allows the molecule to move in lots of directions

and adapt to the binding pocket of the fungal enzyme. “When we have resistant mutations, conventional triazoles can’t ‘fit’ into the fungus, whereas Revysol can with its flexibility,” she explained. BASF head of business development, Steve Dennis (pictured right) added that Revysol’s binding power, which destroys the target fungus, is, on average, 100 times more powerful than conventional azoles, resulting in stronger efficacy. “There’s a lot of variation between fungicide binding power and Revysol binds five times as much as the nearest fungicide performance, and is a key reason why it is as effective as it is. “Septoria is an increasing challenge due to eroding triazole efficacy, a loss of actives and a more extreme climate. One thing is clear: we need higher efficacy and the control of varied septoria populations and shifted strains.”

Trials In AHDB septoria protectant trials (2017–2019), Revystar XE at halfand full-label rate demonstrated improved control over other SDHI products Ascra Xpro (bixfen + fluopyram + prothioconazole) and Elatus Era (benzovindiflupyr + prothioconazole), while a jump in yield (2019) was also seen with the same product comparisons. Trials also demonstrated very good brown rust control and yellow

rust control similar to other SDHIs. “We wouldn’t claim yellow rust control with Revystar is as good as its control of septoria or brown rust, but it is as good as other products,” said Mr Dennis. “Revystar combines the best septoria control with broadspectrum efficacy against other key diseases in wheat,” he added. According to Mr Dennis, that broad-spectrum activity is extended to the main barley diseases and importantly, he said, including ramularia. “Ramularia is a disease we need to understand more, but with prothioconazole losing its performance, Revystar, after chlorothalonil, is the best active for ramularia by a long way.”

Curative activity In addition to a high level of protectant activity against septoria, Mr Dennis pointed out that Reysol shows excellent curative activity against the disease. “To have curative activity the fungicide has to follow the disease inside the leaf and the quicker it can do this the better. Revysol has very rapid leaf uptake – in one hour it equals prothioconazole’s uptake in

one day – and the active is taken up quickly and sits just below the leaf surface where it is naturally protected against external conditions like rain, providing excellent rainfastness, or UV sunlight. “Revysol inner leaf reservoirs are formed resulting in slow and consistent distribution of the product along the leaf length, also leading to long-lasting efficacy,” explained Mr Dennis. He said that a study of farmer perceptions across the UK and Europe in the run up to the T2 timing in 2019, showed that most thought their crops looked clean as the flag leaf was coming out. “However, after leaf collection and analysis a lot of septoria was in evidence from the latent phase and many crops needed a curative treatment despite well timed sprays. “It showed that growers at T2 probably don’t realise the level of septoria they have in the crop at the time and that curative conditions are common even if the crop looks healthy,” he added.

Severe test In testing (straight) Revysol efficacy in field conditions against natural septoria infestations, as well as high densities of (flag leaf timed) inoculated DMI (triazole)-adapted septoria strains, ADAS principal crop pathology researcher Dr Julie Smith said that the product continued to provide efficacy long after the application (made five days after disease inoculation), compared with Proline. “Where 80 per cent of the flag leaf was covered in septoria, even at these pressures good control was achieved,” she commented. She added that Revysol also outperformed Proline in ADAS Healthy Area Duration (HAD) trials – a combined measurement of healthy canopy size and duration – resulting in a yield benefit. When considering the relevance of Revysol when used in combination with wheat varieties with good septoria resistance, Dr Smith confirmed that, irrespective of varietal resistance, disease pressure or septoria populations present, there is a response and benefit in continued over…

using Revysol. “Yield response in these trials was up in all situations following just one application at the T2 timing, and with nothing applied prior to that. “It’s an amazing yield response from an azole,” she added.

Farmer experience As part of BASF’s Real Results initiative, Kent grower Richard Budd trialed Revystar at T1 and T2 timings in a 14ha crop of KWS Lili at Stevens Farm, Hawkhurst, in 2019. He compared it with his ‘farm standard’ cereal fungicide programme. In what was a low disease year, Mr Budd said that, through much of the growing season, there was no obvious difference across the trial compared with the farm standard treatment. However, in late June to mid-July, he reckoned the Revystar trial remained greener for longer – by as much as 10 days. When it came to yield, the farm standard-treated crop delivered 13.89t/ha while the Revystar-treated plot resulted in an additional

0.99t/ha. “Because it was greener for longer, that translated into an additional 1t/ha over the farm standard,” commented Mr Budd. “If we haven’t got a green crop then we can’t accumulate yield,” he added. For 2020, he is going to start with Revystar at T1 – its curative properties able to clean up any septoria that has come through the winter – with a repeat dose at T2 depending on the season. Or, he might drop the T0 and go with an early T1 of Revystar, he suggested. “If we have a clean crop after T1 then there is the option to go with a cheaper product at T2, or to use Revystar again,” he said.


Use of multi-sites BASF says that it is fully committed to the responsible stewardship of its new active ingredient Revysol and, as such, it will be sold in formulation with Xemium. The combination of these two different modes of action ensures unique resistance management and maximises the protection of SDHIs, the company states. BASF recommends Revystar with chlorothalonil while it remains available, and the company will evaluate the ability of other multi-site fungicides, such as folpet, as resistant management tools. FG

Agronomy-focused roadshows BASF is running a series of agronomy-focused roadshows. The events will run throughout the UK until early March 2020, focusing on farmer dominated business insights and the launch of new cereal fungicide, Revystar XE. The farmers will be hosting in partnership with their local BASF agronomy manager and speakers will include soil expert, Professor Jenni Dungait, an ADAS cereal disease researcher and technical fungicide experts from within BASF. Commenting on the events, BASF’s Murielle Moille says: “The format for the roadshows is very different, at the heart of them are the 50 farmers we have been working with in field trialling Revysol on their farms. “Traditionally manufacturers take a very corporate approach to product launches which farmers have told us isn’t what they value, they much prefer hearing from fellow-farmers, particularly in challenging season like this one.” The dates and venues for the events are: 4th February Exeter Rugby Club with Mike Hambly  6th February Newport, Shropshire with Andrew Williamson  10th February Beeswax Dyson, Nocton, Lincs with Ben Abell  12th February Hop Farm, Maidstone with Richard Budd  14th February Ravenwood Hall, Bury St Edmunds with Toby Hogsbjerg and Hannah Darby  3rd March York Racecourse with Pat Thornton  5th March Murrayfield Stadium, Edinburgh with Andrew Booth *To sign up, go to basfrealresults.co.uk/revylution

Keep multi-sites in the mix The importance of using multi-site fungicide chemistry this spring was highlighted at a technical briefing prior to Christmas. Dominic Kilburn reports. With a continued reduction in the effectiveness of some triazole and SDHI fungicide products, crop protection company Adama is reminding growers and agronomists to maximise the use of multi-site chemistry in their cereal disease programmes this spring. The company says that their use is a valuable tool to manage fungicide resistance issues where key diseases such as septoria are concerned – helping to prolong the lifespan of single-site products including SDHIs, as well as providing crops with increased disease protection. This advice is particularly timely with the imminent demise of chlorothalonil; a multi-site fungicide which has been a core component of anti-resistance strategies in cereal disease control programmes for many years. Falling foul of the EU regulatory system, chlorothalonil final use-up on farm is by 20th May 2020 and, with its use on barley as well as wheat, it’s uncertain as to whether sufficient quantities will be available this spring.

Future proof Speaking at the briefing, Adama technical specialist David Roberts (right) said that while single-site fungicides are very effective, and there is also new chemistry available for spring 2020, in order to futureproof disease control it was critical that growers approached the season with a diverse fungicide programme. “It’s important to have started with cultural controls – such as choosing varieties with the highest disease resistant ratings where appropriate – and then add a diverse fungicide programme on top of that. “Use of multi-site chemistry in the programme is the best way of approaching this – and stay in a protectant situation by getting application timing spot on, keeping ahead of disease,” he added. Adama’s multi-site fungicide Arizona (folpet) is available for use on wheat and barley and comes with a maximum individual rate of 1.5-litres/ha and maximum total of 3-litres/ha on both crops. To get the biggest effect from folpet for septoria

control in wheat, and prolong the life of partner products, Mr Roberts recommends a two-spray programme (1.5-litre/ha each) at T1 and T2. “T1 is the critical timing for maximum protection although, in other seasons, when crops might be drilled earlier, then a T0 application at 1-litre/ha for early septoria is an option,” he said.

Comparisons Comparing other multi-site fungicides with folpet for septoria control, including chlorothalonil and Unizeb Gold (mancozeb), Mr Roberts highlighted ADAS trials work in 2018. Here, after a two-spray programme, folpet gave additional control over mancozeb and was comparable in performance with chlorothalonil. In 2019 NIAB trials, when used in combination with Aviator (bixafen + prothioconazole) in a two-spray treatment, Arizona delivered 12 per cent additional septoria protection compared with Aviator alone. “A range of independent trials in the past two seasons have shown why Arizona is the ideal multi-site partner for azole/SDHI mixes including an improvement in crop green leaf area and increasing yield where septoria is the driver,” he said. “And where we see yellow rust, folpet performs slightly better than chlorothalonil,” he added.

Barley Resistance problems for single-site fungicides are not limited to wheat, continued Mr Roberts, who pointed out that reduced levels of activity were being seen in key diseases rhynchosporium and net blotch. However the picture for ramularia, an increasing threat across the UK, is worse. “SDHIs and azoles are struggling to control ramularia while there is complete resistance to strobilurins,” said Mr Roberts. “There are limited options to control ramularia and so it’s very important to consider a multi-site fungicide when controlling disease in barley crops.” Although not on its label, Mr Roberts said

In order to future-proof disease control, it is critical that growers approach the season with a diverse fungicide programme, advises Adama.

trials had demonstrated that the performance of Arizona against ramularia is every bit as good as chlorothalonil and to get the best effect it should be applied at T1 and T2. “Arizona ensures crops are greener for longer, keeping ramularia off the leaves, especially when used in a split programme,” he said. Yield increases in ramularia trials were also seen from Arizona over chlorothalonil where both products were partnered with SDHI/azoles, he added. FG

Multi-site and single-site – what’s the difference? Effective control of foliar diseases such as septoria in wheat and ramularia in barley is becoming increasingly difficult to achieve due to the onset of disease resistance caused by changes in sensitivity of these pathogens to single-site fungicides. Single-site products – azoles, SDHIs and strobilurins – have one mode of action and act on individual pathways to the target fungus. Used repeatedly there is an increased risk of a fungus developing resistance. According to Adama, multi-site fungicide folpet acts on three ‘biochemical pathways’ to the target fungus, making it difficult for fungal pathogens to become resistant and therefore the product remains unaffected by sensitivity shifts, with no field resistance to the product recorded to date. The company says that a multi-site should be used in programmes to reduce the pressure on single-site active ingredients, to ensure robust, sustainable levels of disease control.

Remain vigilant in these uncertain times Climate variability has already played a key part this season – from mid-September to the end of the year exceptional rainfall brought the misery of floods and a virtual complete halt to winter wheat drilling for many. And there can be little doubt that it makes it much harder to forecast disease pressure.

“In Hampshire, it started raining on 20th September and, by the end of November, 330mm of rain had fallen,” says AICC agronomist Richard Cromie (right). For him, vigilance is now needed throughout the season coupled with what he terms an“appropriate response“ at all timings. “Farming is always at the mercy of the weather, but in the past you had a bit more certainty in the seasons. Usually disease built gradually but now the pressure can fluctuate from timing to timing and you need to react accordingly,” he warns. Drilling date is as much a factor as the weather, but even later drilled crops have come through mild winters with plenty of biomass in past seasons. It has fuelled septoria and more prevalent eyespot in recent seasons, and typically was treated with an azole + SDHI fungicide combination at T1 to combat early septoria pressure. This season he expects it might be a little different. Late drilled crops have sat in cold and wet soils, and early biomass is unlikely to match previous seasons. Reduced disease pressure is welcome with yields already likely compromised. “Few crops are likely to break the 10t/ha barrier. Here it might be an opportunity to trim T0 and T1 sprays, and for resilient septoria varieties an azole + CTL might suffice.”

T2 mixes With playing catch-up at T2 unlikely, further savings are possible. He sees T2 mixes being largely protectants, giving more flexibility with chemistry choices. He welcomes new actives coming to market but isn’t expecting significant eradicant

activity being needed, which is where the new products fit best. Instead, he expects an appropriate response to be Ascra (prothioconazole + bixafen + fluopyram) or Aviator (prothioconazole + bixafen) where septoria is the greater threat, or Adexar (epoxiconazole + fluxapyroxad) or Elatus Era (prothioconazole +

pressure in late drilled crops. Across much of his area, control strategies will also be complicated by the variation in wheat drilling. “If we get favourable weather in the spring by the time we get to T2 there might be little difference from previous seasons. It hasn’t been too cold so far this winter and background septoria will be there.” He also warns that the loss of chlorothalonil (CTL) will compound climate variability. Its loss strips

benzovindiflupyr) where yellow rust is the primary target. But even if he needs to call upon new fungicide arrivals, it is likely to be mixed with actives such as bixafen, fluopyram and fluxapyroxad. “The best way to protect a product is not to use it, the next best alternative is not to over expose it. I’d prefer to have three or four modes of action at lower doses over robust doses of two,” he says. Brown rust is also benefitting from climate change. Mr Cromie is seeing it more regularly, although severity does vary. A lack of varietal resistance doesn’t help, nor the slip in SDHI sensitivity, but the big problem is now how rapidly the disease cycles in warm spells. “It cycles faster than any other cereal disease – research has shown a latent period as short as four days. It makes a T3 spray essential for susceptible varieties.”

Drilling variability Yorkshire based AICC agronomist Patrick Stephenson (right) cautions against underestimating septoria

away a protective layer helping to maintain a protective position throughout the season, with most of the wheat area drilled with mid to high risk varieties; only Extase and Theodore have genuine septoria resilience. Fortunately, he believes most of his customers have secured supply for this season. For those that haven’t an alternative multi-site may not be the answer. “In AICC trials we don’t see the same consistency of CTL from alternative multi-sites. We think this is a mix compatibility issue but varietal factors could play a part – typically we see stronger responses where varietal rating is low. But more work is needed.” For northern areas where crops were drilled in good time, he sees a standard four spray programme starting with a CTL based T0. But further south in his area late-drilled crops are likely to race through growth stages making the T1 call more challenging, especially for growers having failed to secure

adequate volumes of CTL. As a result, he will consider SDHI T1 rates as an alternative option. His view being that it might be better to lift SDHI rates with some varieties than include an alternative multisite to CTL. He also welcomes new chemistry and agrees there is likely to be plenty of choice with T2 options this season. “If you need some kick-back then there isn’t much choice but to reach for the most potent options. But if leaves two and three have been kept clean and the risk of transfer to the flag leaf is reduced then we have a range of good protectants. Azole activity is significantly reduced but SDHIs such as bixafen, fluopyram, fluxapyroxad and benzovindiflupyr are still working well.” Rust wise, slightly cooler conditions in his area mean the threat is mainly the yellow variety. It was more easily found last season, probably helped by mild winter weather and that the time of prime varietal vulnerability is at the juvenile stage. It’s why he feels control emphasis is on the early part of the season. “If you can keep the disease under control between GS29–GS31 then you should keep ahead of it for the rest of the season,” he says. And he advises growers not to give up on late-drilled crops. He believes there is some hope for a partial recovery and points out that November drilled crops have performed well in YEN trials. “Winter wheat isn’t as elastic as other crops but it can still recover some of the lost ground. The important thing is to make sure that there’s sufficient N in place throughout the growing season. A ‘little and often’ nutrition approach starting with something in the region of 30kg/N/ha in early February will help,” he concludes. FG

Plan for early spring weed control In a normal season, spring weed control is a case of mopping up odd weeds that have come through a hefty autumn stack of residual herbicides. But 2019 wasn’t a normal year, with the autumn cereals that did get planted often receiving less residual herbicides than usual, and what was applied has been under deluge from the winter rain, making it vital that growers have an effective weed control plan for early spring. Sulfonyl urea herbicides are ‘old friends’ to most agronomists and will be more important than ever this year. They’ve been the mainstay of spring herbicide programmes for more than three decades and are often used in tank mix with Starane (fluroxypyr) or phenoxy herbicides – MCPA, mecoprop and 2,4-D – the SUs revolutionised broad-leaved weed control when they were first introduced in the 1980s. Over the past three seasons, two herbicides containing a new synthetic auxin, halauxifen-methyl (trademarked Arylex Active), from a different herbicide group (arylpicolinates) gained registration. They offer a flexible window of application for a broad spectrum of weeds but that doesn’t mean the SUs have been pensioned off, says AICC agronomist Andrew Wells (right) of Arable Alliance in Nottinghamshire. “Effectively, the success of DFF has shifted the weed spectrum over the past 25 years. The consequence is a new spectrum of broad-leaved weeds – with cranesbill, bur chervil and creeping hedge parsley proving

to be particular problems,” he says. He believes that it’s not just the chemistry that’s responsible for the shift in spring weed control priorities, it’s also the way they’re being used in the autumn. “Before resistant blackgrass became widespread, autumn weed control used to rely mainly on isoproturon, trifluralin and DFF products or mixes and this meant a broader spectrum of weeds came through in the spring. “These days we usually apply a stack of residuals in the autumn to tackle black-grass and so much goes on there’s only ‘mopping up’ to do in the spring. I don’t tend to see weeds such as speedwells, poppy or chickweed anymore,” he says.

Two key roles Andrew views the sulfonyl urea herbicides as having two key roles. One is reliable and cost-effective weed control in the spring, especially where brassica weeds are present, and the second is specifically to tackle the very competitive umbelliferous weeds that are rapidly spreading in his area. These weeds, which are readily found in verges and along

hedgerows, started as a rarity in his Nottinghamshire patch about 15 years ago. When they first began to appear in crops it was so unusual that he sent weeds to the herbarium at University of Reading for identification and the first rogue umbellifer was found to be creeping hedge parsley. Another umbelliferous weed, bur chervil, has also become increasingly problematic in Andrew’s region. “In the past five years it’s spread rapidly and can be found on all soil types in Nottinghamshire. Some farms have it, whereas other farms don’t, and it’s not known how or why it’s spreading but it’s likely due to seed movement in something – possibly in the seed, combines or in straw,” he comments. Once they become established in a field the umbelliferous weeds spread quickly and it’s their speed of

growth in the spring that can catch you out, he warns. “They emerge in the autumn and if not controlled then they will be above the canopy by April and very competitive with the crop for light, water and nutrients.”

For black-grass because even at postemergence, every percent counts

Know the species Agrii regional technical adviser Will Foss confirms umbellifers are an increasing problem across the country but highlights the importance of knowing which species you’re dealing with. “I’m not sure why, but fool’s parsley, shepherd’s needle, hemlock etc are all becoming more regular. They all tend to be referred to as ‘wild carrot’ but it’s important to ID them accurately as herbicide products can vary considerably in terms of levels of control of the different species,” he says.

methyl + thifensulfuron-methyl) as the preferred option for control of difficult to control umbellifers, such as wild carrot, shepherd’s needle and bur chervil. He’s been involved with the product from its early development when it was within the DuPont portfolio of sulfonyl urea herbicides and he has an encyclopaedic knowledge of the weeds it controls. “In the work we’ve done, Harmony M provides the best levels of control, followed by Ally Max (metsulfuron-methyl + tribenuronmethyl). These perform better than Jubilee (metsulfuron-methyl), although this will still provide good levels of control in a competitive crop,” he says.

“It’s important to keep the rate of SU high and to treat early in the spring, between mid-March and mid-April, when weeds are actively growing. Wild carrot is easier to control than bur chervil, but timing is very important. Leaving these difficult umbellifers until T1 is too late,” he adds. Andrew agrees that thifensulfuron is the key ingredient for control of bur chervil and creeping hedge parsley in cereals and says he’s finding it’s best to apply at T0 or earlier to prevent weeds becoming competitive with the crop. “The SU label allows application from 1st February and it’s best to get on as soon as you can to control bur chervil, when there’s a bit of moisture and growth but while it’s still small. I’ve found it’s possible to use a reduced dose early under good conditions but as soon as the weed gets bigger you need to use a full dose,” he comments. Controlling the difficult

Before resistant black-grass became widespread, autumn weed control used to rely mainly on IPU and DFF, so a broader spectrum of weeds came through in the spring.

umbellifers is a little trickier in winter barley because Harmony M doesn’t have approval for use in the crop, meaning alternative sulfonyl ureas have to be used, he points out. Adding a phenoxy herbicide to the SU can also boost bur chervil and wild carrot control. In FMC trials fluroxypyr or dicamba plus mecoprop-p have proven to be the best tank-mix partners, says Adam.

For the weed spectrum he’s dealing with, Andrew prefers to use MCPA, which he finds to be one of the better remaining options where SU resistant poppy are present, as well as providing extra activity on umbellifers. “Adding older hormone chemistry does broaden the weed spectrum but you need to be careful with tankmixing, and in particular avoid mixing with manganese,” he adds. FG

Finding the right sulfonyl urea Allowing bur chervil to get away can be a costly and embarrassing problem, says Thomas Channing, who helps manage Leyfields Ltd, a 1,100ha family business in Kneesall, Nottinghamshire. “10 years ago we lost a substantial area of wheat on light land to bur chervil. We had a very dry April and the weed completely took over and robbed all the moisture from the soil.” Since bur chervil first became an issue about 12 years ago, Tom and his uncle have worked with their agronomist, Andrew Wells, to find the best way to control it. Blackgrass dictates a hefty autumn dose of residual products and the only real weeds left to deal with in the spring are bur chervil and cleavers. Thomas is BASIS qualified and regularly walks the crops himself. He also does the spraying so knows exactly where he’s likely to find bur chervil in fields. “It tends to be in patches and, once it’s in a field, a clump will emerge in the same place in following years. We went through the process of finding the right sulfonyl urea and for us it’s Harmony M. By late autumn bur chervil is visible from the sprayer and we aim to control it early in the spring, before it gets going,” he says. Where timing has been unavoidably delayed, it isn’t necessarily a disaster if growing conditions are good, he adds. “We’ve had to spray when bur chervil was 50cm high and the Harmony M dealt with them well, with symptoms showing seven days after application and after two weeks they were no longer an issue. “We’re slowly getting on top of the problem, but bur chervil is still creeping into fields that it wasn’t in before,” he says. Where exactly the weed is coming from is still unknown, but Thomas suspects it may be coming in with poultry manure. “Last year we had a field which had poultry

Thomas Channing believes bur chervil has been imported in chicken manure and he earmarked seedling bur chervil in cereals during October for treatment this spring.

manure applied for the first time in a long while and bur chervil appeared for the first time. It was sprayed out in year one which means it hasn’t had a chance to complete its lifecycle, so it’ll be interesting to see what happens this spring.” Difficulties managing bur chervil in the other crops within the rotation is one of the reasons it’s so difficult to get rid of, believes Thomas. The farm grows 285ha of oilseed rape, with 350ha in first winter wheat, 147ha in second wheat and 190ha in spring barley. On the lighter land 64ha of maize is grown for AD and the remainder of the farm is split between grass and fallow/margins/wild bird covers. “OSR is part of the problem because none of the OSR herbicides control bur chervil so the weed sneaks in. We grow a lot of spring barley to help control black-grass and the crop gives us an opportunity to get rid of the weed before planting the crop because it’s an autumn germinator,” he comments. “In the wheat we have to spend an extra £12–£14/ha to control bur chervil, but we’ve found we don’t need to do anything extra for cleaver control because we’re going in with the Harmony M when the weeds are small,” he concludes.

Arable Beware the knock-on effect from last autumn Autumn 2019 is not one that will be forgotten in a hurry and, unfortunately, its effects will continue in 2020, says crop protection company Gowan. Black-grass emergence was impacted by the very wet conditions – autumn germination can be delayed by induced dormancy in wet soil, before germinating in spring when the soil dries out. This has been confirmed by NIAB weed specialist John Cussans, who says that wet soils create anaerobic soil conditions and it is this environment which induces dormancy. “We simply do not know how much of the autumn population will be affected – there is no room for complacency,” he suggests. In addition, last summer black-grass seed dormancy was relatively high, so does that mean more spring germination anyway? Commenting on options for black-grass control in spring cereals, Gowan UK and Ireland technical manager Barrie Hunt (pictured right), says that with the exception of Avadex Factor, Avadex Excel 15G and some of the pendimethalin-containing products, the vast majority of preemergence herbicides have greatly reduced spring application rates, with individual flufenacet products being limited to rates delivering just 120g of active/ha – 50 per cent of the autumn black-grass rate.

“Both Avadex products deliver a full effective grass weed dose at all cereal drilling dates –autumn or spring. Remember Avadex Excel 15G can be used on both spring barley and spring wheat, whereas with Avadex Factor it’s just spring barley,” he says. “One of the additional benefits of both Avadex Factor and Avadex Excel 15G is the wide application window in spring barley with the option to apply ahead of drilling as well as the classic post-drilling pre-emergence slot, allowing plenty of time to get on. “With all the focus on black-grass it’s easy to forget that Avadex was originally introduced as a wild oat herbicide specifically in spring barley, and excellent control is still being delivered over 50 years later – a key tool for the early removal of this important weed. “Besides spring cereals, Avadex Factor and Excel 15G can both be used in spring linseed, under an EAMU, and are the only non-ACCase herbicides for black-grass or wildoats available in the crop,” comments Mr Hunt. “While not targeted as a broad leaf herbicide, it’s also important to remember the useful contribution from both Avadex Factor and Avadex Excel 15G to broad-leaved weed control. A wide range of species are susceptible or moderately susceptible to Avadex including speedwell, cleavers, fat-hen and knotgrass,” he added. FG

Mechanical weeders provide a flexible solution Terrington Machinery offers two imported machines for growers to control weeds mechanically; the Einböck Aerostar-Exact and Aerostar-Rotation. The company says that precise adjustment of the Aerostar-Exact’s 600mm tines is done hydraulically from the tractor cab, with 2.5cm spacing, and featuring 40 tines/m working width as standard. Support wheels are adjusted so that the weeding elements run parallel to the soil during operation – they are positioned higher (for increased soil working pressure) or lower (for less pressure). The range starts at 1.5–3.0m (non folding), 4.5–9.0m (hydraulic folding)

and 9.0–15.0m (gullwing folding). The Aerostar-Rotation is a rotative weeder – rotating working tools uprooting weeds to encourage tillering and crack hard soil crusts if required. The star wheels are mounted inclined for more effective weed control, says Terrington. The wheels effectively manage crop residues making the machine perfectly suited for mulch-tillage. The Aerostar-Rotation is also effective at low working speeds, reducing crop damage. Featuring 6.5mm thick steel tines, casted into an inclined plastic disc, each of the 50cm star wheels are suspended separately, adapting to any surface irregularities.


A step-change in oilseed rape broad-leaf weed control Farmers growing winter oilseed rape will have a new broad-leaf weed herbicide at their disposal this spring in the form of Korvetto from Corteva Agriscience. Korvetto has excellent activity on the weeds that steal yield and cause issues at harvest time, with robust control of cleavers, mayweed and thistles in particular, says the company. The herbicide has good activity on a broad range of other problem weeds including cranesbill and poppy. It contains Arylex Active – the same active ingredient used in the recently launched autumn herbicide Belkar – in formulation with clopyralid. Corteva’s oilseed rape category manager John Sellars (pictured right) said: “Even farms which apply good autumn herbicide programmes in a timely manner will usually face a late winter and early spring-germinating broad-leaf weed burden. “Korvetto will be a very good option for UK farmers because it will control many of the weeds found in oilseed rape crops as daylight hours

increase and temperatures rise.”  Corteva’s Galera (clopyralid + picloram) has played a leading role in most spring-applied oilseed rape herbicide programmes for many years. But Mr Sellars pointed out that Korvetto represents a step-change in performance over Galera.  He said: “Both contain clopyralid but Korvetto is significantly beefed up by the inclusion of Arylex – the unique herbicide molecule which is being introduced into a number of crop sectors. “The inclusion of Arylex allows farmers to cover a wider spectrum of weeds while gaining a higher level of control,” he added. The application window mirrors Galera – 1st March to growth stage BBCH50 (flower buds visible above the crop) – but the added strength of Arylex in the formulation means Korvetto also has strong activity on those familiar weeds that become visible above the crop as the season progresses. There are no following crop restrictions, and farmers are free to use Korvetto if they have applied a post-emergence herbicide in the autumn such as Belkar or AstroKerb, confirmed Mr Sellars. FG

Trial at Harnage Estates, Shropshire in 2019.

host of Wynnstay’s annual arable event, it’s also important the farm’s land is kept in good heart. “Using CF N-Min has been a key part of ensuring this for the last six years and helps manage the nutrient resources in terms of both the organic and bagged fertilisers applied. “In the trials in 2019, the N-Min test identified a value of 104kg N/ha, from a combination of soil mineral nitrogen (SMN) and N that would be mineralised as the season developed known as additionally available nitrogen (AAN). “Combined with 30kg N/ha already in the crop this produced a total soil nitrogen supply of 134kg N/ha. This was then used with the CF N-Calc programme, which recommended a rate of 170kg N/ha to produce a 10t/ha crop.” Both the AN and urea treatments started with a first application of DoubleTop (27N + 30SO3) in early March to provide 50kg N/ha. These then received two equal 60kg N/ha splits in the first weeks of April and May of either Nitram (Nitram 34.5%N) or urea (46%N) delivering the required 170kg N/ha in total, she explains.

Moving to a more efficient fertiliser regime Fertiliser trials at Harnage Estates in Shropshire have shown full ammonium nitrate (AN) based systems delivering 0.6t/ha more winter wheat and over £90/ha increase in margin over fertiliser costs (MOFC) compared with those containing urea. While fertiliser costs/ha remained roughly the same for the two treatments, the AN-based approach delivered 12.6t/ha with this dropping to 12.0t/ha when the crop’s final two applications were applied as urea at the same N rate. The fertiliser requirement of 170kg N/ha was identified from CF N-Min soil testing as being required by the crop to achieve its optimum potential. This was in addition to the 134kg N/ha soil nitrogen supply (SNS) picked up by the test, farm manager Doug McCowan (pictured right) explains. “We would normally apply 180–230kg N/ha with the milling wheat being at the higher end of that, but the test suggested we could go a bit lower last year. “We’ve been using CF N-Min for the last six years as we use a fair bit of sewage sludge and have a wide range of soil types from sandy loam to heavy clay, so the recommendations for achieving optimum crop performance do change from year to year. “As well as making sure we’re achieving the highest levels of Nitrogen Fertiliser Use Efficiency (NfUE), it also ensures we’re not applying too much N which is obviously not good news from an economic perspective but also importantly an environmental one.”

“The results were quite dramatic. Although both treatments had received exactly the same amount of N, those that had received this as urea produced 12.0t/ha while those receiving AN produced 12.6t/ha – 5 per cent more. “Interestingly, the crop produced 2.0–2.6t/ ha more than the target yield that the N recommendation was based on. This was principally down to the exceptional season. “Equally important was that this was produced for roughly the same fertiliser cost – £91/ha for the DoubleTop/urea system and £94/ha for the DoubleTop/AN treatment – resulting in MOFCs of £1,829/ha and £1,922/ha respectively, representing a gain of over £90/ha.” “It’s difficult to draw any other conclusions than the result was down to better NfUE achieved by AN and an overall increase in NUE, (nutrient use efficiency) by using the N-Min system to determine the soil nitrogen supply.” For Doug McCowan making better use of fertilisers is just one of the objectives of the farm in the year’s ahead. “It’s not just about making sure you get the highest yields and best economic response from your crops, it’s also essential in ensuring N inputs are used as responsibly as possible in line with environmental requirements. “We’re all on a learning curve, but trials and results like this can really help you shape what your future fertiliser strategy should be.” FG

“We’re based on a 4–5 year rotation with around 360ha of wheat, both feed and milling, 184ha of oilseed rape,120ha of winter barley plus around 30ha of potatoes and the rest made up of spring beans – although the weather probably means our spring acreage will increase this year.” Recent years have seen a move away from ploughing towards minimal cultivation, he explains. “We’re very much focused on protecting the soils and have to be pretty flexible because of the different soil types we have here. “Normally, we would only plough ahead of the barley, but this year we’ve had to do more simply to invert the soil and get something dry to drill into. “Making more use of organic matter is also key in terms of building up the soil and we carry out a ‘muck for straw’ swap with a local livestock producer which works well – plus we apply sludge cake most years.” According to CF Fertilisers’ arable agronomist Allison Grundy (pictured right), understanding more about the effects these organic sources have on soil nutrition is essential. “This is not just to ensure the optimum commercial efficiency of Doug’s crops but as the

Keep it simple this spring Growers still have cropping options open to them that will minimise disruption to rotations and maximise profits following the upheaval to autumn drilling experienced by many, believes a seed specialist. Keeping cropping decisions simple this spring will do much to keep profits and future plans on track despite the challenges thrown up by the recent poor weather, says KWS UK’s Kirsty Richards (right). “Many growers have been able to catch up with winter wheat drilling to some degree in recent weeks but even if you didn’t manage to get all your crop in, spring wheat could still be the best option. “Management is largely a known quantity and, in some cases, can be simpler due to reduced disease threat resulting from the shorter growing season. “The crop will also be ideally suited to the heavier land likely to be left over from the winter cropping shortfall – which could catch spring barley growers out – and, if managed properly, should have little effect on subsequent rotations. “In fact, spring wheat can actually help spread harvest workload on larger farms and avoid the handling problems that can arise with other crops as it can easily be stored alongside existing winter wheat,” Kirsty says. In addition, while many in the industry are predicting a sharp increase in spring barley planting which could drive prices down, this is not the case with spring wheat, she further points out. “It is widely accepted that wheat will be in short supply this year so you’ll be able to benefit from the higher prices and demand for the crop. “Plus, if you grow a ‘dynamic’ spring wheat such as KWS Cochise and KWS Chilham, in addition to yields approaching 8t/ha you’ll be able to take advantage of their high grain quality through Group 2 milling premiums.” Growers could also save on input costs, further enhancing the economic performance of spring wheat, Kirsty continues. “Shorter growing time means lower disease risk and potentially reduced fungicide costs too. A good application of early nitrogen to maximise tillering

and yield potential is advisable but generally agronomy and crop management are fairly simple. “Both KWS Cochise and KWS Chilham also have good stem stiffness and septoria ratings, plus both have orange wheat blossom midge resistance so that won’t be a problem either.”

Don’t dismiss spring oats Another alternative to spring barley would be spring oats, Kirsty suggests. “They like a lighter soil but you can drill them early and provided you have a good contract, they generate good returns. “WPB Elyann offers high yields and the best kernel content of any recommended varieties, plus it will be one of the first varieties to mature and is the earliest to harvest of all other listed varieties. “As well as good agronomics, it has wide market appeal and is already generating strong interest from the millers.” WPB Isabel, a variety just added to the RL for 2020/21, has lots of potential too, she recommends. “It’s similar to WPB Elyann combining high yields with excellent grain quality and impressively low screenings, but is probably a bit later to mature. “Other attributes include very stiff straw with a score of 9 without PGRs and a strong disease resistance package.”

Demand for peas With an easy fit into most cereals-based rotations and growing demand keeping prices firm, peas also offer another opportunity for UK growers in 2020, says KWS’ James Maguire. “If you’ve never thought of peas before, this could be the ideal year to do so. Both white and blue peas are in increasing demand as a valuable protein source, with new processing techniques and uses emerging alongside increasing export opportunities. “We’re probably up at 40,000ha at the moment

It is widely accepted that wheat will be in short supply this year and so growers might be able to benefit from the higher prices and demand for the spring crop.

in the UK but there’s genuine potential for this to increase for both large blue peas, which are grown mainly for human consumption, and white peas for animal feed markets. “Gross margins are very attractive for a spring crop and, production-wise, peas can be drilled as late as the end of April, which could help spread the workload this spring, with a fairly early harvest minimising disruption to subsequent rotations.” Two of the latest pea varieties are particularly suited to both new and experienced growers alike, he says. “Manager is a very high yielding white pea which does well on a range of soil types, has a strong disease resistance package, including resistance to pea wilt, and very short stiff straw making it a very robust and reliable option. “Over the last three very different years in terms of growing conditions, Manager has delivered consistently high yields with its popularity also enhanced by large seed size.” In terms of blue peas, Mankato offers the same ‘easy to grow’ attributes and performance as Manager with good colour and exceptional standing adding to its profitability, he points out. “Mankato demonstrates good colour retention compared with other large blue varieties – an important feature of such varieties as this leads to greater marketability and significantly higher premiums.” FG

Customers take time out for East Anglian dealer open days Organic vegetable producers

Open days at Thurlow Nunn Standen’s (TNS) Attleborough, Norfolk and Melton, Suffolk depots in late November and early December featured many new products from the dealer’s main franchises. David Williams attended the Melton event. One of the longest-established Massey Ferguson dealers, TNS also represents Fendt and Valtra as well as key franchises including Merlo, Kubota, Kverneland and Vicon, HM Trailers, Opico He-Va and Sky Drills, Bomford, Claydon, Sumo and Grimme. Five branches provide sales and service support across Suffolk, Norfolk and part of Cambridgeshire. The open days were an opportunity for new and existing customers to view the wide range of products and to speak with dealer and manufacturer staff regarding features and benefits of the machinery displayed. TNS regional sales manager Matt Boardley said: “The TNS Melton open day was a great opportunity for us to thank our customers for their

continued support throughout the year, and for them to meet our team. There has been significant investment in the depot recently, including a large workshop extension and new parts storage building, and those attending were able to view the improved facilities. The day was well-attended by manufacturers and customers and provided a great showcase for the brands and products we supply. The new Fendt 942 generated a lot of interest, as well as the new Massey Ferguson Ideal 9T Combine. “For TNS, 2020 will be an exciting year, with some new franchises coming on board and, of course, we will continue to invest to support our customers to the high standards they have become used to.”

Post driver generated enquiries On the Portek stand, the company’s inertia log splitter attracted attention and a new product – the Portek Post Driver (pictured) – was also generating enquiries. Powered by a 4-stroke petrol engine and capable of driving posts up to 4.5in diameter into the ground, the post driver costs approximately £650, explained Portek area sales manager for Eastern England, Morgan David (pictured).

James Foskett Farms machinery operator Alistair Smith is pictured with Valtra UK sales promotion and key dealer account manager, Andy Miller. The farming business based near Woodbridge, Suffolk specialises in organic vegetable production and invested in its first Valtra in early 2019. “I use a Valtra N174 Direct with up to 200hp available for demanding applications, but with its compact 4-cyl engine it’s incredibly manoeuvrable,” said Alistair. “We do a lot of bed work and being able to turn tight on small headlands is an advantage. The hydraulic oil supply is superb, making it ideal for hydraulic-driven implements, and its CVT transmission allows optimum travel speeds during planting and harvesting. The cab and front axle suspension provide a good ride, even on the narrow wheels, and the cab is spacious and quiet.” Alistair’s N174, which had worked 1,900 hours in the 10 months since delivery, was bought with a second Valtra – a T214 model – and both performed so well and proved so popular that another two Valtras were recently added to the fleet – both T214 models, replacing another brand.

Machinery Various farm operations covered Members of the team from farmers and contractors Philip Liverton Ltd were at the open evening. Business development manager and machinery operator Abbi Liverton explained that the company specialises in hedge and verge maintenance, grass cutting, tractor hire, combine harvesting and all general farm operations. The family farm is at Ardleigh, near Colchester and also operates from Framlingham, Suffolk. Six Fendt tractors used include 516, 716 and 936 Vario models, and there are also several Kubota tractors used mainly for groundcare, which were supplied by TNS. A Kverneland 7f LO on-land/in-furrow plough was purchased from the dealer following a demonstration three years ago. A Kverneland fertiliser applicator is used, and cultivations are carried out by a Sumo Trio, also supplied by the dealer.

Excellent service received Farmer and contractor Mark Ellis says the excellent service he receives from Thurlow Nunn Standen is one of the main reasons his business remains loyal to the Massey Ferguson brand. Trading as DAF Ellis & Partners and based at Upper Layham, near Hadleigh, Suffolk, Mark runs the business with his son-in-law who is also a partner, and employs one additional machinery operator during harvest. Three Massey Fergusons are operated, including two 7726 models and a 7720, all of which were purchased recently

replacing two similar 7726 tractors and a 7620. “My father bought a grey Ferguson in 1958 and since then we have always had at least one Massey Ferguson,” he explained. “Our tractors average 800 hours per year, and are usually updated every three to four years. They hold their value well, are reliable and we enjoy using them. “Nothing is too much trouble for the TNS team – when a hydraulic pipe failed recently, the tractor was working again within 90 minutes.”

Popular heavy-duty mower Major area sales manager for southern England and Wales, James Cox is pictured with a Major Cyclone heavy-duty mower, which he explained is particularly popular with TNS customers. “They are available in 2.0–6.3m working widths and require far less power than a flail, offering savings of up to 25 per cent,” he said. “With contrarotating blades they give a good finish and spread cut vegetation evenly.”

Service team always available Farmer Gerald Western (below right) is pictured with TNS sales representative Tom Miller and one of the Fendt tractors displayed. Gerald’s family farm is at Brundish, Suffolk, and he also provides a contracting service locally. Three Fendt tractors used include a 930 Vario which was new in February 2019, a 724 Vario which was purchased four years ago, and there is also an older 820 Vario which has clocked up more than 10,000 hours. “We bought our first Fendt 926 in 1990, and have used the brand since then,” explained Gerald. “Anything else we have tried just doesn’t compare to the Fendt for the smoothness and efficiency of the transmission, and

TNS open day (006).indd 35

I know that neither of our two main operators would want to move away from the brand. “The back-up from TNS is very good and we know that the service team is always available when we need them, and if faults occur they are diagnosed and corrected quickly.”

Long-standing employee takes over engineering company Dave Baverstock spoke to Farmers Guide about his new role at the helm of PHR Rayne, where he has worked for more than 25 years. Having begun life in the agricultural industry as a farm worker in his teens, Dave Baverstock (right) joined PHR Rayne as a farm mechanic/ engineer in 1994. After more than two and a half decades with the company, he is now the new owner. Commenting on the takeover, he says he is feeling a mix of “fear, apprehension and excitement”, but adds: “I knew if I didn’t take over, the business would disappear and our customers were keen to see it stay with the people they knew. It’s still a family business as one of my sons has come on board as a director and we work side-by-side.” Dave says he has seen many changes at PHR during his time with the company. “When I started, the basic stock tractors were just 110hp,” he explains. “Now they are much bigger – the largest I’ve worked on recently was a massive 400hp. Everything has grown in size, including farms. Smallholdings have gradually been taken over by contracting firms. “The dynamics of the sales process has changed, as we sell less but the numbers are up as the equipment is bigger and better equipped to do the job. Nowadays, manufacturers are reacting to the needs of the customer and not so much bespoke engineering is needed, but we still find we have to adapt and adjust some items to meet the client’s needs.” Dave is looking to stay true to the company’s roots and is not planning to make significant changes, but rather to establish the business as the go-to provider for service and sales, reinforcing the message that it is stable and able to meet local agricultural needs. Looking ahead to the next five years, he says it will remain a family company – local and personal. “We have a good relationship with other dealers and like working alongside them, rather than trying to be their competition. If we expand, it will be purely to satisfy the customer needs with an extra engineer or office staff to keep the business running smoothly.”

He says the team are not afraid to take on a challenge. “If we can’t do what the client needs, we work with other local companies to get the job done. “We are a Fendt specialist and though I have worked on most

farm equipment, I have a special place for Fendt in my heart,” he adds. “They offer a complete package for the client. We can adjust a piece of equipment for bespoke engineering, or rebuild the Dave’s son Jamie has joined the company as a director, keeping it true to its roots as a family company. engine etc.” FG

New products on display Positive feedback from exhibitors and visitors confirmed that Lamma at its new undercover Birmingham NEC venue continues to be preferred to the previous outdoor arrangement. There were hundreds of new products to view, many fresh from their launch at Agritechnica a few months before. David Williams reports. Straw pelletising Krone’s Premos straw processor featured alongside the latest forage harvesters, mowers and balers. The Premos is designed for field use – collecting straw, hay or alfalfa from the swath and pelletising it in one operation, or stationary in the yard where baled material can be processed into pellets throughout the year. “Trials are continuing to establish the optimum conditions for operation,” explained Krone marketing manager James Duggleby. “There are many possible applications including producing feed, bedding and biofuel, and we believe that most potential users would operate in the field during and after harvest where conditions allow, then use the Premos stationary for the rest of the year, making the most of its potential output and the investment. As well as being available to purchase we believe many users will prefer to contract-hire, with seasonal maintenance included. We hope to have a demonstration machine in the UK this summer, and then take orders from early 2021.”

Push-off shear grab Albutt general manager Tom Worthington is pictured with the company’s new SK250HX Push-off ShearKing. It's designed for wheeled loaders and larger telehandlers in response to demand from potential customers including AD plants, and larger dairy units using robotic feeders. “We had push-off rakes previously, but this is the first on a shear grab,” explained Tom. “Push-off emptying makes filling large hoppers easier, without the need for toe-tip buckets, and for robotic feeding it provides clean blocks which are easily handled. Construction is from Swedish steel and the price is approximately £10,000, including brackets.

Twin-hopper distributor New products from Techneat included a twin-hopper Autocast distributor, shown for the first time. Using a twin hopper to supply a single metering unit ensures improved application of mixtures, explained the company, particularly where seeds have different sizes and densities. The new version has been designed in response to growing demand for seeding cover crop mixes, or slug pellets with oilseed rape seed.

Pictured with the Perkins engine are (l-r) service instructor Paul McKenna, engineer Joe Fellows and parts sales representative Richard Clubley.

After-sales service Main focus on Perkins' stand was after-sales service and promotion of genuine parts. A competition running throughout the event involved engineers stripping a 3-cyl Perkins 403 engine, replacing the pistons, then rebuilding the engine in the fastest possible time. At the time of Farmers Guide’s stand visit late on the first day; the fastest time recorded was just over nine minutes.

Review Reduced surface movement

Members of the Opico team are pictured (l-r): Oakbank Game & Conservation director Ian Gould, Mike Burley, Karen Dowie, Nick Rider, Joe Redman, Richard Amphlet, Sky Agriculture technical sales manager Fabien Desportes, James Swann, Colin Grigor, Glenn Bootman, David Mein, Charlies Bedforth, Angus Steven, Helen Selkin, He-Va production director Heine Christiansen, Alex Smith, David Day, Dominic Burt, Robin Immink, Maschio export area manager Carlo Facchini, and Walter Jolly. Missing from the photo, but busy throughout the show was Opico managing director James Woolway.

New on the Opico stand was the He-Va Stealth cultivator. Its operation includes ultra-low disturbance soil loosening, and the company describes it as ideal for those using min-till or no-till crop establishment regimes, relieving mid-depth compaction and improving aeration and drainage, nitrogen availability and root growth. Scalloped, straight leading discs cut through trash, vegetation and top soil, and are followed by legs staggered in two rows for efficient residue flow. Leg spacing of 500mm is standard but can be adjusted to 450 or 550mm to suit differing conditions. The Stealth points have 120mm wings and cast steel tungsten points. Maximum working

depth is 300mm and hydraulic depth control is available from the tractor seat. As well as being ideal for reduced tillage regimes; Opico points out that the Stealth is suitable for soil loosening in conventional cultivations. The new Stealth subsoiler is available in mounted 3.0, 3.5, 4.0 and 5.0m working widths and trailed 6.0m and 7.0m versions. Opico is also offering Stealth conversion kits consisting of legs and points to fit existing He-Va subsoilers and Combi-Discs.

Easily more versatile Further updates on Opico’s stand included the Sky EasyDrill, which retains its successful established seeding system but incorporates features improving versatility and making it more user-friendly. The EasyDrill is suitable for establishment regimes including no-till, min-till, direct into cover crops as well as conventional cultivation systems. The latest 20-series version has the option to include up to four separate hoppers, with grain and fertiliser main tanks as standard, but with the possibility of adding one or two additional pro-hoppers, allowing seed, fertiliser, companion plants and crop protection products to be placed in one pass. All-new electrics include the Quartz 8000 control box which is capable of looking after all four metering units. Variable-rate seeding from all four hoppers is possible. Isobus compatibility is standard. E-Drive Premium is an option allowing electronic shut-off of each outlet, as well as left and rightside section control. This also improves integration within any tramline spacing regime as the user only has to enter the farm’s sprayer or spreader width, and the drill then calculates and adjusts the seed rows automatically.

Connected weather Sencrop promoted its connected weather stations, of which more than 8,000 are installed across Europe. Since launching in the UK in early 2019, it has already supplied more than 350 units here, too. “Our weather stations are accurate and reliable,” explained UK Pictured are (l-r): UK business manager Frederick South; sales support manager business development assistant Genevieve Baumann; Victoria Nicol. “They are UK business development manager Harry Atkinson; professional quality, easily area sales manager Germany Daniella Moll; events coordinator Jeanne Longueville and UK sales support and quickly installed and manager Victoria Nicol. through a cost-effective subscription service the weather data which is stored in a ’cloud’ is available to the station owner, and any other authorised users from anywhere with a data connection.” Victoria explained that the ease of accessing the data is popular, making it convenient for several farms to share information from one station, or to pool information from multiple stations. Cost of the company’s Ag-Weather Rain Station, including rainfall gauge, temperature and humidity sensors – as well as the first year’s service subscription and delivery – is just £570. Ongoing subscription cost is £150/year and battery life is approximately four years, with replacements costing £30. 

Strengthened fork A new ProAg folding fork was displayed for the first time by Strimech, and generated enquiries mainly from agricultural contractors – although there was also interest from export markets. The new fork is available in 14ft and 18ft versions, and incorporates strengthened pivot points and hydraulics. A new buck-rake is also due to be launched this year at the Grassland Event. “Capacities are only going one way and as a manufacturer we have to help our customers by matching our products to the demand,” explained managing director Justin Blades.

Capacities are only going one way and as a manufacturer we have to help our customers by matching our products to the demand.

Review Cost-effective alternative On the AgriArgo stand new models from Landini were displayed. The new High Clearance (5 HC) version of the Landini 5 series tractor replaces similar machines based on the superseded 5D series. Compared with previous Landini high clearance tractors, the 5 HC machines have a new more spacious cab, increased oil flow for the steering and main hydraulics, and a slightly longer wheelbase. There is also a new power unit – a 3.6-litre Deutz four-cylinder engine using just a diesel oxidising catalyst (DOC) to meet current emissions requirements, which replaces a 3.4-litre Perkins motor that also required a diesel particulate filter (DPF) for emissions control. With just under 700mm clearance below its axles, and capability to carry sprayers with capacity up to 3,000 litres between the front and rear linkages, the high-clearance There is growing interest for mechanical Landini 5-115HC is a practical alternative to expensive self-propelled sprayers, weeding too, as the high-clearance model pointed out AgriArgo UK managing offers advantages including reduced crop director Adrian Winnett.

New X7-series flagship Also new on the AgriArgo UK stand was the McCormick X7.240 with up to 240hp available, and due to replace the current X7.690 as the series flagship later in 2020. “McCormick sales were up 20 per cent last year compared to the previous year,” explained managing director Adrian Winnett. “We have a superb dealer network now and a range of great tractors and are keen to maintain this growth. Our X7 series is most popular, and part of its success has been the wide range of precision farming options and efficiency aids we now offer. We have partnered with TopCon as our main solutions provider, but for farms already using alternative systems our tractors offer excellent compatibility.”

With 790hp, Fendt’s Dual Helix processor, and a total concave surface area of 4.54m2, the Ideal 10 offers performance and output to suit the largest farms and contracting operations. Ensuring the best possible view of the header, the Ideal 10 also comes with IdealDrive, with a steering joystick on the left armrest replacing the conventional steering wheel. at the Fendt stand s displayed on the show ip combine wa to sh rs ag ito fl vis 10 th al wi pular The new Ide d proved very po Lamma 2020 an

Narrow tractor A new small fruit tractor was displayed by Deutz-Fahr. The 5115DF TTV has 4wd and comes with six-mode, four-wheel steering. Crab and conventional front wheel steering can be selected, and a handy trailer mode adjusts steering response to improve manoeuvrability in tight working areas. The cab has a flat floor for maximum comfort, the engine produces 113hp and a 100-litre/min hydraulic oil supply ensures there is plenty of flow for high performance attachments. The new 5115DF TTV is also ideal for transport tasks with a maximum 40kph travel speed. Deutz-Fahr product specialist David Jefferson is pictured with the new tractor.

Split-screen on offer for trailer safety A new split-screen display with images from two cameras was announced by Trailer Vision. “AgriVue was developed in response to customer requests, and priced from only £195 we have been inundated with enquiries during the show,” explained technical support manager John Foster (pictured). John said the company’s Yard Vue static security cameras are also in high demand with images available to view from anywhere with a data connection. The units

are waterproof, come with an SD card to store images, feature infra-red night vision and have built-in PIR movement sensors. The camera connects to the internet through Wi-Fi, and there are no ongoing subscription costs. Prices are from just £75.

Smart and narrow Star attraction on Valtra’s display area was a T234 Direct tractor (pictured), with Valtra Unlimited Studio options including black rims, black wheel weights, full LED light package and dark interior, and finished with a unique colour wrap. Also displayed in the UK for the first time was Valtra’s new F-series vineyard and orchard tractor, which is available to order this spring. F-series models are available with 75–105hp, and range from 1.3–1.5m wide but have a spacious and comfortable cab with heating and air conditioning standard. Transmission is 24-speed powershift with mechanical or hydraulic forward/reverse shuttle. Futuristic technology promoted by Valtra on its stand included SmartGlass. This allows essential operating information to be displayed in the centre of the front screen so the user can monitor performance without looking away from the forward view. The display is customisable to suit the operator and task and will be available later this year.

Only British plough

Low cost trailers

Agri-Hire manufactures the Hubert plough at its Suffolk base. Latest versions include an all-new headstock fabricated from British steel rather than the previous cast headstock. “This has enabled us to improve the design and increase its strength,” explained managing director Tim Hubert. “Everything except the wearing parts is made at our Suffolk base and as well as superb strength and build quality we offer something British-made, which is appreciated by farmers.” Tim is pictured with the Hubert plough, and his son Charlie who was assisting on the stand.

On the Agri-Linc stand a competitively priced grain trailer from its own Proforge range created interest. The Proforge trailer comes in 12, 14 and 16t versions, all supplied standard with commercial axles and running gear. Manual or hydraulic tailgates, rollover sheets and sprung drawbars are all available as upgrades. The display trailer was a 14t model, with hydraulic tailgate, sprung drawbar and flotation tyres, priced at £14,450. February 2020 www.farmersguide.co.uk 47

Review Controlled distribution

Cost-effective innovation

Vogelsang has added a new dribble bar applicator to its range, suitable for mounting to the rear of a tanker, or behind a tractor as part of an umbilical cord application system. UK sales manager Sion Williams explained that demand for low-cost slurry application solutions is growing as farmers seek alternatives to conventional splash plate applicators which are expected to be banned soon. The Uni-Spread is available in 6.0, 7.5, and 9.0m versions, with a 12.0m model due to be added later. All come with Vogelsang’s Drop Stop anti-drip system which reduces the chance of slurry dripping on the road during transport. Slurry is supplied through ExaCut ECL or new ECQ distributors. Trailing shoe applicators are an option.

Bullock Tillage displayed new implements including a hydraulic arm-mounted seeder unit for its conventional compact discs. Nigel Bullock is pictured with the new seeder and explained that with 1.5t lift capacity the mounting arm is suitable for carrying a variety of attachments. “The mounting arm can be raised and lowered hydraulically allowing filling of the seed hopper at ground level and saving time over alternatives which require a tractor loader or handler to fill,” he explained. “We have added the seeder to our options list because of increasing requests by customers for a means of establishing small seeds and particularly cover crops. With many growers keen to ensure ground cover throughout the year and avoid bare stubbles we expect it to prove popular.” Displayed on the stand, the 3m discs are priced at £8,500 and the seeder, complete with GPS-governed rate control, brackets, frame and a selection of three metering rollers adds £3,900.

Header moves made easy Abrey Agricultural is the UK importer for Ziegler products, including a wide range of high specification combine header trailers. Managing director Toby Abrey said that Ziegler trailers are available for any make and model of combine and that more than 100 were supplied by his company last year. A four-wheel steering option helps navigate tight field entrances and narrow lanes, and is specified for most trailers for headers of 25ft and wider. “Once a customer sees it in action, then it’s usually selected for a new trailer,” explained Toby. As well as header trailers, Abrey Agricultural is also experiencing growing demand for Ziegler cultivation equipment, and a selection was displayed at the show. “The HD cultivator leaves a plough-press type finish and we sold a large number last year,” added Toby.

Semi-automation The Profitable Farming Company displayed new products including low-cost, Semi-Automatic Applicators for balers, forage harvesters, forage wagons and crimping equipment. The High Volume Crimping Applicator (pictured) consists of a 200-litre tank (also suitable for coupling to additional tanks for greater total capacity), a 12-litre/min gear pump, manual or automatic control options, and the ability to set an application rate per tonne of produce. The High Volume Inoculant Acid Applicator has a similar specification but is available with an optional wireless control system.

Effective solutions Among new products displayed by APV were a new liquid fertiliser applicator and a spring-tine mechanical weeder. The LF600M1 fertiliser applicator mounts on the front of the tractor or is also suitable for mounting on the rear of nearly all tillage implements. It has a 600-litre capacity and delivers liquid through up to 48 solid stream or flat jet nozzles. Application rates up to 20-litres/min are available and the control box allows precise speed-regulated application rate control, as well as headland management with manual or automatic control. The mechanical weeder VS has been available previously in Europe, and is now part of the line-up available in the UK for the first time. Innovative hydraulic-adjustable spring tensioners control tine operating pressures to optimise performance in a wide range of conditions. Austrian-based APV supplies its products through a growing UK dealer network of which there are 12 currently.

Versatile appeal Launched in 2017, CEAT Specialty Tyres continues to grow and gain market share throughout Europe and in the UK, was the message on UK distributor Nordic Tyres’ stand. CEAT offers an expanding line-up of radial tractor and implement tyres in an increasing range of sizes, manufactured at its state-of-the-art factory in India. Nordic Tyres is one of the UK’s largest specialist agricultural tyre wholesalers and managing director Alan Lindsay explained that the CEAT brand is complemented by Nokian radial flotation tyres for which it is also the UK importer. Its range includes the new Nokian Ground King hybrid tractor tyre. 48 www.farmersguide.co.uk February 2020

Review Robots adding flexibility Lincolnshire-based Burdens Group specialises in root crop, vegetable and salad production machinery and has recently become the UK dealer for robotic farming equipment from Naio Technologies. “Labour available for field tasks is a growing concern for many growers, and investment in robots for repetitive jobs allows human workers to focus on more complex activities,” explained Burdens Group commercial horticulture specialist Andy Wilson who is pictured with Naio robotics specialist Caroline Lamarquis, and a Naio Oz autonomous wheeled robot for tasks including weeding and transport. The Oz robot uses camera guidance and can perform interrow tasks in rows from 55–120cm and can perform U-turns for next

Future-proof bale handling

Robotic palletisers The David Harrison team was busy throughout the show explaining features and benefits of the company’s range of sack fillers and robotic palletisers. Most palletisers are sold for use with potato sacks, but there are also customers using machines supplied by the company for most other types of vegetable. The Visser standard size palletiser was displayed on the stand but a larger Symach model is also available, offering work rates of up to 30t/hr and making it ideal for larger farms and merchants.

Rotary cleaning solution

Pictured (l-r): Jonathan Overton; Robin Mumby; Roy Edwards; and Clare Mumby.

Plot Feeds promoted Kongskilde rotary cleaners at the show. “We have offered them for several years but have seen a recent increase in demand as they offer an effective and economical means of improving the sample,” explained Roy Edwards of Plot Feeds. “The Kongskilde design includes a conventional outer drum with a conical drum inside which separates larger constituents quickly, leaving the whole of the main screen available for thorough cleaning. We have models offering capacity up to 80t/hr and the compact size makes them ideal for lorry mounting as part of an on-site contract seed cleaning service.”

Big Bale Transtacker manager Elliot O’Brien is pictured with an updated Transtacker available for the coming season. “Bales are getting denser and heavier every year and we have upgraded the Transtacker to future-proof it,” Elliot explained. “A new grab arm is stronger but costs less, and the pick-up offers improved bale grip. There are also new options including factory-fitted reversing cameras and improved lights, and a new feature which will appeal to both farmers and contractors is a weighing kit, which weighs pairs of bales on the turntable allowing accurate reporting of straw yield.” The new Transtacker costs £98,000 representing a small increase over the previous model, while hiring the latest version remains at £19,000 per season.

Potato toppers prove a success Lincolnshire-based Scotts Precision Manufacturing produces root crop and vegetable cleaning and harvesting systems, including the Evolution Separator. In recent years the company’s Trinity haulm toppers have been in growing demand due to the diquat ban. Feedback from those using our toppers confirms excellent performance and reliability, but they are also easy to maintain with flails and wear liners easily lasting for 400ha or more, but which are very easily replaced,” pointed out apprentice engineer Casey Lambley. “They are built well, they are cost-effective, and demand is for all models from single front toppers to use ahead of harvesters or within smaller enterprises, to larger triple sets for the front and rear of tractors.” February 2020 www.farmersguide.co.uk 51

Review Maximum benefit On the Agrimech stand, directors Darren and Belinda Smith are pictured with one of the company’s own-built palletisers, of which there were record sales last year. “Stacking sacks on pallets is hard work and time-consuming and automating the process makes sense,” explained Belinda. “But there is no point at all in investing in automation unless it is good automation and our machinery has an excellent reputation for efficiency and reliability.” Agrimech started in business offering weighing and sack stitching products but now offers a

total solution for produce handling from when it comes off the grader to the end of the packing line. “Pallet stacking is often regarded as the hardest part of the job, and when the task is shared by several staff then consistency often suffers as each team member has a slightly different way of doing it. Automating stacking means every pallet is stacked the same,” she added. The Titan palletiser pictured is capable of maintaining a packing rate of 10–11t/hr but the company also offers robotic solutions allowing alternate stacking of multiple pallets for higher work rates up to 14–15t/hr.

-Cost saving rubber recoats

Clifton Rubber sales representative Tom Smith (left) is pictured with technical sales representative Philip Holt. Tom explained that demand recently has been for the company’s range of de-stoning stars ahead of the potato planting season. Along with a wide range of other rubber components, principally for the vegetable and salad cleaning and grading industry, the company also refurbishes rollers for the track systems of rubber-tracked tractors. “It’s a big saving compared to the cost of new rollers,” said Tom. “We charge approximately £200–£250 depending on model, and this typically saves 75–80 per cent compared to buying new.”

Keeping efficient “The Lamma show now presents the UK agricultural industry as it should be presented,” observed Miedema Mercer sales manager Russell Blight.

Cutting-edge crop sorting Farm Electronics was busy explaining features and benefits of its new Samro stone and clod separators, available as a result of the company’s takeover by Tolsma Grisnich Group. “The separators work by magnetic sensing of ionisation in the soil, with phenomenal accuracy, “ explained operations director Joe Sambridge. “We are inviting potential users to bring their samples to our Grantham site to try out the sorting capability for themselves and, with accuracy levels of more than 98 per cent, the sorters can be integrated into new or existing lines.“

Review Contractors’ spreaders Chatting to Farmers Guide while visiting the Agri-Hire stand were staff from TAR Hire, which offers a contract hire and spreading service for customers mainly in Northamptonshire, Warwickshire and parts of Leicestershire. The company moved from a previous brand to an Agri-Hire 14t machine two years ago and is delighted with the decision. “We are still over the moon with the build quality. It's very rugged, which is what's needed when spreaders are hired out. They tend to be used and abused and we're here to see the latest Y-body model as we recently ordered a second larger 18t version,” explained team member Rob Dawkins. Pictured (l-r): TAR Hire’s Rob Dawkins, Agri-Hire managing director Tim Hubert, and TAR Hire representatives Alan Crawley and Tom Dawkins.

Dual purpose

New disc-harrow

Merlo’s MultiFarmer telehandlers come with rear PTO and hydraulic linkage, allowing them to perform tasks usually carried out by conventional tractors. “Demand is mainly from smaller farms where MultiFarmers replace tractor loaders,“ explained Merlo national sales manager Owen Buttle (pictured). “Most are sold to users in typical livestock and dairy farming areas, and with 170hp engines in the 40.7 and 40.9 models, there is plenty of capability to power and pull implements. The most popular task is probably for towing and powering feeder wagons with the loader used to fill the machine too, but we also have farmers using the handlers for grass harvesting operations including baling, and others for ploughing and cultivations.”

The new Top Disc high-speed compact disc-harrow was displayed on Cousins’ stand for the first time. It features 510mm rubber-mounted discs and is available in linkagemounted 3.0m and 4.0m, and trailed 4.0m, 4.6m and 6.6m versions. All fold except the 3.0m model. A new Open Channel packer with 600mm rings spaced at 150mm uses soil-to-soil contact and Razor Rings are an alternative option. The new disc-harrow created considerable interest and the Cousins team reported that visitors came specially to see the new implement, having read in Farmers Guide’s show preview that it would feature on the stand.

New agreement Spaldings has entered into an agreement with Grimme UK, in which the companies will collaborate to supply genuine Grimme parts. Most parts included in the agreement are service and wearing parts for cleaners, planters, de-stoners, bed preparation machinery and harvesters. The agreement means customers can purchase parts through Spaldings or through their local Grimme dealers. Spaldings product manager Sid Deaton (right), said that the agreement is great news for customers, and that working with Grimme and the Grimme dealer network will ensure correct parts are supplied first time, and are easily accessible.

Parts range addition Also announced by Spaldings was the addition of the SPL Ultra parts range. Developed to provide enhanced wear characteristics for a longer working life, their construction is the result of analysis of wearing parts removed from machines. “We have looked at the wear characteristics and areas where wear is more pronounced causing parts to require replacement,” explained product engineer Aiden Wells (left). “Then we redesigned the SPL Ultra parts with a revised profile and extra material in the areas which experience greatest wear for a longer working life.”

Safe, stressless, efficient Ritchie’s Beef Monitor allows daily liveweight gains to be closely and accurately monitored without animal stress, while saving labour and improving farm safety. Cattle enter the weighing platform to access drinking water and are automatically weighed on each occasion – usually up to six times per day, with results recorded and logged against their EID tags. Weights are averaged for accuracy and sent to a ‘cloud’ from which they are easily accessed from anywhere with a data signal. The company points out that as well as reducing time needed for stock handling, the daily weighing means optimum market weights aren’t exceeded. February 2020 www.farmersguide.co.uk 55

Review Harvest hire solution APH specialises in long-term combine hire typically between 3–5 years, and although any make of combine can be supplied most on the fleet currently are Claas and New Holland. “Leasing with full maintenance means farmers can budget accurately for their harvesting costs for a number of years and, although we also sell machines, we have seen increased demand for hire replacing many purchases,“ explained hire and sales manager James Palmer.

Leasing means farmers can budget accurately for a number of years and we have seen increased demand for hire replacing many purchases.

“We also supply Bateman sprayers on hire, mainly on five-year contracts, with machines built to order to customer specification. James is pictured (left) with APH general manager Martin Powell.

Expanding bale spike range Pete Heath of Heath Engineering is pictured with a new Superspike bale spike from his company’s expanding range. “Previously we offered just one version which proved very successful but there is also demand for simpler entrylevel models as well as those with additional features. We have introduced both at Lamma this year, including the Heavy Duty – capable of lifting the bale to 3,770mm compared to 1,980mm for the standard version, and the Eco which is a lighter-duty model with a fold down spike. We enjoyed a busy show with lots of interest in our range which is built to last, and safe and strong,” he said.

Lower cost fire safety Cherry Products has added Kevlar body fire extinguishers to its product range, with potential to save significant cost compared to standard metal tank versions. “They should save customers up to 47 per cent over 10 years as they can be checked and serviced on farm, have a longer service life and only one is needed whereas previously at least two types of extinguisher were required for most locations,” explained sales manager Ian Fenton. “New composite P50 foam is capable of putting out larger fires than the equivalent volume of foam from conventional extinguishers and can be used for all types of fire.” The new extinguishers are available through Cherry Products dealers and the 6-litre version costs approximately 20 per cent more than a standard extinguisher at £150.

Off-balance sheet machinery solutions Contract Plant Rental enjoyed a busy first attendance at Lamma meeting potential customers for its contract-rental service, available for any new machinery for up to five years. The company has operated for more than 10 years as part of the Ballyvesey Group specialising in contract rental of waste handling, industrial and construction machinery. “Contract rental is for a minimum of six months and for any product,” explained regional sales manager Stu Lambert. “We offer nationwide service, there is no deposit required and it enables businesses to operate new equipment with full-service support while keeping it off the balance sheet. We only supply products with full service back-up and in the event of a breakdown then replacement machines are provided to minimise downtime.” Pictured (l-r); Stu Lambert; managing director Mark Kennedy; regional sales manager Mark Robbins; sales managers Andy Moore and Ken Longley, and Vincent Scott-Halton.

Leading drill updated Seven years after Weaving Machinery launched its original Sabre Tine Drill a new model was launched at Lamma. The Sabre Tine Drill is designed for low-disturbance crop establishment in all cultivation regimes and while retaining the previous well-proven drilling technique, new features to improve performance include faster adjustment of seeding depth, better contour following, reduced power requirement and a longer working life. One of the main differences to the design is an additional fourth row of tines, providing extra space for soil and trash flow for reduced blockages. Metering is electronic and the metering system can handle seeds of all sizes from beans to oilseed rape, and seed rates as low as 2kg/ha. The fan is hydraulic driven. The new Sabre Tine Drill is available in 3.0, 4.8 and 6.0m working widths with 18, 28 and 36 coulters respectively. All models are designed for rear linkage mounting and come with a 2,000-litre hopper, 166mm row spacing and Isocan GPS metering. “Even before its launch we had taken orders for at least 30 units,” commented marketing manager Sarie Weaving. “The Sabre Tine Drill has proved popular since its launch and the improved version will increase its appeal even further.” 56 www.farmersguide.co.uk February 2020

Review Company rebrand is a hit Manufacturer Ktwo unveiled its new logo and styling at Lamma ‘20, having undergone a brand overhaul to support its future business plans. Marketing manager Zoe Chamberlain said it marks a significant milestone in the company’s journey and attracted very positive feedback at the show. “Our vision is to become the market leader for muck spreaders and trailers across the UK, and to grow worldwide," she explained. “We wanted our brand to showcase our vision better and take us boldly into the future.” Ktwo’s stand featured two types of suspension for visitors to interact with, as well as a large central TV screen showcasing its new website. There were also hundreds of entries to its competition to win eight weeks’ hire of its Roadeo Compact and Push Trailer, which launched at the show. The competition remains open for the next few months and the winner will be drawn in July.

Novel pump unit

New grinder for growing demand

Wox Agri has developed the first pump unit with a directly driven gearbox connection to a 4NHTB Cornell Pump. Displayed at Lamma, it allows a greater work scope for operators with tractors from 180–325hp. The Wox Walrus PTO Pump features a 20-spline 1.75in PTO drive, so a 180hp tractor can drive the unit while the pump’s integrated hydraulic system is not in use. The feeder arm offers an overall reach of around 9m from the tractor’s rear linkage, which can be increased by different pipe lengths up to around 5m. Engaging the pump’s hydraulic system will drive the integrated charge pump, allowing the Cornell to operate to maximum potential and efficiency. With a recommended minimum of 200hp (maximum of 325hp), the pump plus charge pump removes any potential priming, cavitation or ‘run dry’ issues. Wox Agri says the pipe work for the unit is fully integrated to allow for many different requirements, including a stage pumping facility, a direct feeding to the main pump and a recirculation of material (jetting).

Welmac UK specialises in shredders and tub grinders, and at Lamma it launched the latest addition to its range – the Strawbuster F1050 PTO-driven straw grinder. Managing director Andrew Balfe explained that the new grinder is being offered in response to growing demand for high capacity straw processors. “Most enquiries were from contractors offering a straw preparation service to multiple customers, as well as from larger livestock farms,” he said. “Adding straw to conventional feed mixer-wagons means the mixing takes 45 minutes to an hour to complete and requires a lot of fuel, but by processing the straw in advance, then adding the required amount to the mix reduces feed preparation time to just 10 minutes or so. Chop length is adjustable and when grinding wheat straw the typical work rate is 8–10t/hr. Other uses for ground straw include bedding, and we have also had enquiries for chopping root crops for use in AD plants.”

Other uses for ground straw include bedding, and we have also had enquiries for chopping root crops for use in AD plants.

Award-winning company A Vredo slurry applicator occupied most of the JC Machinery stand. “We have 21 machines working in the UK currently including six supplied last year,” explained national sales manager Christopher Sage (pictured). “The Vredo VT4556 model is the most popular as it is the only compact self-propelled tanker available with a 24m applicator, and when folded it’s under 3m for transport.” While at the show, JC Machinery was awarded the Ivel Award and Silver in the Arable Innovation category for its Vredo Crop Drill System (CDS). The Ivel is given in memory of Dan Alborne, inventor of the first successful light farm tractor, and awarded by the Institute of Agricultural Engineers (IAgrE). FG

Company brings trio of new products to Lamma The Profitable Farming Company launched three new products at Lamma ’20, including its Smartphone Precision Moisture Sensor, an app-operated sensor for all baler types, which utilises precision technology from the company’s flagship automatic applicator systems. For all large and small square balers, the moisture range is 8–70 per cent, with round baler range at 8-60 per cent moisture range. Precision is a market-leading +/-1 per cent. With live readings updated every second and an average previous bale moisture displayed, the company says it puts an ending to guessing if the crop is fit to bale. Wet bale management can also be added to these systems. Also new was the rate-controlled Semi-Automatic Acid and Inoculant Applicator for all balers, forage wagons and forage harvesters. Application ranges from 10ml/t to 3l/t. Setting the parameters is done simply via a dial control and once

they are set the system will apply the fixed rate. It utilises a reliable gear pump and can be operated via Wi-Fi. Finally, the company introduced its Front Loader Mounted Hedge Buster Saw in working widths from 1.3–3.8m (pictured above) which mounts directly onto the front loader frame.The Hedge Buster will cut material up to 250mm (10in), keeping the material away for the tractor and preventing expensive repair bills. Working with a front linkage mounted grab will maximise the system’s potential, the company says. FG


New franchise announced Horsch will be partnering with Carrs Billington Agriculture to provide its full range of cultivators, drills and sprayers to customers in Northern England and South Western Scotland.

New ‘one tractor, one man’ pump trailer A new umbilical pump trailer from slurry specialist Tramspread offers contractors and farmers potential time and cost savings by requiring only one tractor and one operator. The pump trailer is used by Tramspread’s contracting division to reduce manpower and cover the highest acreage using just one tractor. Manager Laurence Baker explains: “We used this trailer to spread 300,000 cubic metres of slurry and digestate in 2019. It has proven easy to use and reliable, so we have started producing trailers to order. “Technology offers time- and money-saving options to farmers and we believe that this trailer will be a valuable tool to contractors like us in the future.” Unique to the design is an SIL remote control that Laurence and his team have helped to design. This, combined with pressure sensors and a flowmeter, allows the entire umbilical system to be accurately operated and monitored by just one person. Fitted with Tramspread’s Raven Box mapping and recording technology, the unit can also report the areas treated and slurry quantity utilised. “The combination of knowing the speed of flow and being able to control it remotely is key to the time and equipment savings this trailer offers,” Laurence says. “Operators can measure how effective each application is and improve distribution in the future.” The contractor pump trailer is powered by a 175hp Iveco engine, coupled with a Bauer SX2000 pump which is capable of pumping up to 300m3/hr, depending on distance and hose diameter. The long drawbar enables an applicator, such as a dribble bar, to be carried on the tractor’s rear three-point linkage while towing the trailer. Up to 2,000m of drag hose is carried on two galvanised detachable spools located at the front of the trailer, while a further 1,000m is carried on the tractor’s front threepoint linkage via a powerful twin hydraulic drive reeler, giving a total system capacity of 3,000m. Over the twin sprung high-speed axles, there is a large 900-litre fuel tank. Mounted over the fuel tank is a compressor, which is also remote controlled, and a suction hose loading area with two large toolboxes. FG

Technology offers time- and money-saving options to farmers and we believe that this trailer will be a valuable tool to contractors like us in the future.

Major expansion for parts specialist Sudbury-based Pan Anglia has undertaken a major investment programme as a significant expansion in its operational capability. Pan Anglia has invested in a new 2.5-acre distribution centre in Skellingthorpe, Lincoln, as well as strengthening its board of directors and sales teams. The move underpins Pan Anglia’s strategy for growth, whilst continuing the long-held strategy of exceptional service, value and expertise to all customers. While the company head office will remain at Sudbury, the new premises will become the regional distribution centre for replacement parts in the north. It is expected to be fully operational by spring 2020. The board of directors has been strengthened with the addition of Paul Bray (sales and marketing director), Nigel Whelan (business development director), and David Fox (non-exec director). “Together the new directors bring over 90 years of agricultural experience, enhancing our existing team of highly knowledgeable parts specialists,” MD Richard Benning explains. Further investment in people has seen David Donaldson, Jason Smith and Bodie Hunter join the sales team as regional managers, while Alex Wight, Mark Keats, Paul Glew, Lee Head and Gary Rawlings were also appointed in field sales. An experienced sales support team will comprise Dan Kearton, John Edwards and Lee Matthews. Liz Powell has also joined as product and marketing coordinator and Alex Kemp re-joins as operations and logistics manager. Chairman James Dilley says: “Plans and further investment in stock are already underway to increase and enhance the range with further diversification into additional parts and consumables, in order to offer customers the greatest choice, whilst maintaining our stand-out specialisms in root crop with specialist Richard Fell, and in the PTO sector with specialist Russell Farmer.

Drone technology – cutting edge but becoming affordable While agronomy companies and some larger farms have successfully turned to drones to assist with field and crop monitoring, for the average farmer the cost and complexity of the technology means it remains out of reach. David Williams looked at a system designed to make it more affordable.



UK-based DroneAg has introduced low-cost hardware and software that can provide site-specific information not available elsewhere, making drones more affordable and useful to the average farm. “For full field scanning, satellite imaging can provide a lot of useful information,” explained company founder Jack Wrangham, who was brought up on a Northumberland family farm. “But information on crop health to help make agronomy decisions is far more important to farmers and agronomists. Checking crops by field walking is the current solution for most farms, but it’s hard work and time-consuming. Using a drone instead, to photograph pre-programmed sample points, and then checking the images is faster and more convenient, and our system simplifies this process.”

Successful trials

DroneAg started trials of its Skippy Scout 18 months ago – the first version offering pre-programmed flight paths and using off-the-shelf hardware. The user simply selects a field and sample points, then the app creates a flight path with points at which photos are to be taken, and then transfers this information to the drone before each flight for automated operation. After completing the programmed route, the drone returns with images taken at each of the marked survey points. The high-definition images obtained from just a few metres above the crop can be analysed visually in just a few seconds, allowing the user to check crop condition and plant populations and identify weed and disease issues.



Trials on UK farms demonstrated that replacing crop checks on foot, with drones and the Skippy Scout system increased work-rates by up to 80 per cent, and was also much easier than walking on wet, muddy ground. Crop damage was also reduced. “The images can be viewed immediately on-farm, and acted on if there is an issue, or sent to a third party for further advice,” said Jack.

Widespread applications The trials involved approximately 400 users, between them managing 250,000ha of land, and of which 48 per cent were farmers and 11 per cent were agronomists. North Yorkshire farmer Graham Potter, trading as W Potter & Sons, was one of the first to be involved and he was at Skippy Scout’s December press launch. The family farm is approximately 200ha with crops including wheat, oilseed rape, spring barley and fodder beet, as well as environmental and cover crops. Graham has used drone imaging since first investing in precision farming technology 10 years ago. “They save us a lot in terms of time and chemical costs, and allow us to be more environmentally friendly as most chemicals and nutrients are applied only where needed,” he said. “Issues such as manganese deficiency in wheat, and weeds such as sterile brome are easily identified, and application maps are created in the farm office then used to control the sprayer.” Graham said that, although the trial Skippy Scout system didn’t provide the same depth of information

 DroneAg founder Jack Wrangham is pictured demonstrating his Skippy Scout crop imaging software.  Skippy Scout replaces field walking by allowing a route and sample points to be planned on a smartphone, then sent to the drone for completion.

generated by his own drones, he believes it's a “fantastic tool“ for typical farm use. “The images allow weeds to be easily seen at cotyledon stage, benefits of environmental initiatives are evident, and it allows the grower to see how crops are progressing. One limitation of the trial version was that missions weren’t repeatable; in other words, having programmed a route and locations for photographs to be taken it wasn’t possible to repeat the exercise precisely throughout the season, which would allow images to be compared and treatment results to be checked. However, with additional features planned for 2020, I can see it being even more useful,” added Graham.

Added features Skippy V2.0, which was launched at Lamma ’20, includes improvements over the trial version suggested by trial participants, improving performance and adding convenience. These include fast set-up with in-app guidance and simple Basemap importing. Added safety is provided by automatic field margin setting, a customisable terrain and hazards database, and improved image capturing. Mission repeatability is also included which enables users to store flight routes and photograph points for quicker operation and also allows for comparison of identical

field points over time. Upgrades under development for app version 2.1, due later in 2020, include artificial intelligence capability. This will provide image analysis capable of counting crop or weed populations, as well as the proportion of diseased or wilted leaves, and allows the user to set thresholds with auto-flagging of images and locations where limits are exceeded. Further developments include API Integrations for linking with third party systems, making it easier to import scouting points and maps, and export images and AI analysis. The company also aims to offer synchronisation with current farm management software.

Affordable The app is available to farmers for a monthly £30 subscription, covering users with up to 50 fields and allowing flight and image sampling paths to be stored. For consultants, the monthly subscription is £60, with unlimited field numbers. The app is compatible with almost all commercially available drones. Prices start at approximately £400 for a drone suitable for farm use and with the capability to obtain high definition photographs. For those who would rather purchase a ready-to-use solution, DroneAg will also offer a convenient leasing deal. This includes a drone and app access, with full set-up support and maintenance and repairs included, for a monthly fee. FG

29/01/2020 15:46


Staffordshire dealer open day highlights benefits of new models A mid-December open day by Rea Valley Tractors gave visitors the opportunity to view new mid-sized John Deere tractors for the first time. David Williams was there. Rea Valley Tractors (RVT) operates through four branches, from where it looks after customers in midWales, Shropshire, Staffordshire and Derbyshire. As well as its main John Deere franchise, the dealer also represents other major brands including JCB, Kuhn, Joskin, Grimme, Bailey Trailers, Stihl and Ag-Leader.

and CommandArm mounted controls feature for the first time. The dealer’s Sudbury depot is close to JCB’s world headquarters and, displayed for the first time since its official launch at the German Agritechnica show in November 2019, was the new 532-60 Loadall which replaces the 526 model.

Load capacity and hydraulic work contributing to a successful flow rates are also increased, evening,” he said. FG

True 6m handler Pictured here with the new JCB 532-60 Loadall, which was shown for the first time in the UK, are JCB territory sales manager James Hollis and RVT sales manager Matt Mulligan. “It’s a true 6m handler with 3.2t lift capacity,” explained James. “It’s only available in Agri specification currently, like the 526-60 it replaces, but it has a 4-speed, 40kph transmission, regenerative hydraulics for fast cycle times and a 140-litre/min variable displacement hydraulic pump. It has the latest series three cab with superb visibility. And, although it’s slightly bigger than the 526, it can be supplied on smaller 20in wheels which keep it to the same overall height as its predecessor.”

Specialist forage contractor

Members of the Capewell family, trading as Banktop Farm, near Uttoxeter, were keen to find out about the new John Deere tractors. The farm is mainly dairy with approximately 100 Holstein Friesians, and beef stores are reared. “We moved from mechanical to electric hydraulic controls when we last updated our tractor,” explained Simon Capewell, who is pictured with his father Don and son Jack. “I wouldn’t go back to mechanical now and the new 6M series with the CommandArm looks attractive. The new models are ideal for livestock work – small and compact, and the view from the seat is excellent. RVT gives very good after sales service, and we also get on well with the local John Deere sales representative Darren Roe, who is always approachable.”

Local contractor Kevin Brandrick (centre) is pictured with service engineer Joe Bailey (left) and sales representative Nick Wells. Trading as GC Brandrick & Son, the business specialises in forage harvesting and operates two John Deere forage harvesters including an 8500i which was new in 2019, and an older 2010 model 7450 which, Kevin explained, was the first brand new forage harvester bought by the company. Grass, maize and wholecrop cereals are harvested, all for livestock and the business serves farms mainly within a 15-mile radius of its Newborough, Staffordshire base. “We deal with RVT because it’s local and convenient, but also because it supplies some excellent brands and the team there are a very good bunch,” he said. “We like to keep our machinery up to date and our main tractors are four years old or newer. We run four John Deere tractors currently – two 6155Rs, a 6135R and a 6130R with a loader. We also operate a John Deere T670 Hillmaster combine, and have recently confirmed an order to update it with another the same for the coming harvest.”

Dealer relationship suits family farm

Managing grassland carefully

Staffs farmers impressed

Trading as C & EN Latham, and based close to the dealer’s Sudbury depot, the Latham family are livestock farmers with a beef suckler herd consisting of Hereford and Simmental cattle. Animals are sold as stores, but the Lathams also sell their own beef direct to consumers under the Broomhill Beef label. “It’s a growing business which adds value to our product,” explained Rosie Latham, who is pictured with husband Chris, and Edward their son. A John Deere 6110RC tractor with a 340 loader is used on the farm, and Chris said he likes the reliability of the John Deere brand, and enjoys a good relationship with his local dealer.

Practical solution Local farmer Jordy Binns is pictured with JCB territory sales manager James Hollis, inspecting a JCB 403 articulated loader. The Binns family, trading as RA & NE Binns, has a beef enterprise at Leigh, near Hilderstone, Staffs comprising mainly Limousin and Angus cattle. “We use a tractor front-end loader and skid-steer loaders, but are looking for something which can travel more easily between our two sites, and believe this might be suitable. We already operate two tractors and a John Deere bale wrapper supplied by RVT and know we can rely on the after sales service,” he added.

Family business W Botham & KE Jones is based at Hardwick Park Farm, near Sutton-in-Ashfield, Notts. Will Botham and partner Karen Jones run their beef and sheep enterprise with sons Sam and Tom. The sheep are Texelcross Mules and Jacobs, and the flock also comprises rare breed Whitefaced Woodland. The cattle are pedigree Longhorn and Stabilisers. Will is pictured with son Sam and RVT territory sales manager Simon Parker. “We have a farm business tenancy on land owned by Chatsworth Estate, and much of our grazing is in Higher Level Stewardship,” explained Will. “We have to manage the grassland carefully to remain commercial and run John Deere tractors including a 5100R purchased in 2012, and a 6120M which was new in 2017, replacing a 5125R. We do our own grass harvesting and make round and small square bales, and feed the round bales using one tractor in the winter while the other tractor is usually on a straw blower.”

Service second-to-none Contractor Tom Thornley, trading as TB Thornley, attended to look at a Kuhn GA 13131, hydraulic-driven four-rotor rake. “We provide a contracting service for farms within a 40-mile radius of our base near Ashbourne,” he explained. “We run a forage harvester and do a lot of baling using both round and square balers. We also offer a slurry application service.” The tractor fleet includes a John Deere 7530, bought last September from RVT, JCB Loadalls and a 416 loading shovel. Kuhn machinery includes a wrapper, a topper and a fertiliser applicator with GPS spread control. “The service from RVT is brilliant, second-to-none, and what really sets the dealer apart is its willingness to loan demonstration machines for long enough to see if they will suit our intended use,“ added Tom, who is pictured with the Kuhn rake.

Machinery Loyal to brand Trying out the new 6120M tractor cab is young Billy Kent-Pearce with his father Robert, and RVT territory sales manager Dave Arnold. Robert explained that John Deere tractors have been operated by the family farming business TW Kent & Co for more than 31 years, and that the farm’s newest 6130R is its 28th of the brand. The farm is near Ashbourne, Derbyshire, and includes a Holstein dairy herd with 100 milkers, while a second family holding includes a beef suckler herd and free-range chickens. Approximately 15ha of arable cropping includes wheat, which is either wholecrop harvested or crimped for feed. There are six John Deere tractors on the farm currently. “We deal mainly with Dave Arnold, who looks after us very well, but the service from the whole team at RVT is good,” stressed Robert.

Scholarship offered to aspiring agricultural engineers

Double win for new system Debuting its striking green livery for the first time at Lamma ‘20, Razorback has seen a noticeable expansion in its range over the last 12 months, including the addition of an award-winning residue management system. The RT 500 & Residue Harrow bagged the Gold medal in the Lamma’20 Arable Innovation Awards category and also went on to win the Founders award for best overall innovation at the show. Recognised for its benefits in slug control and stale seedbed preparation, the duo impressed

the judges for its innovative, environmental applications. It should come as no surprise that farmer and engineer Martin Lole (pictured) holds the recipe to success when it comes to designing state-of-the-art machinery. With a background in vegetation management and establishment equipment, Razorback is built on over 100 years of combined industry knowledge shared by its experienced engineering, sales and service teams. This heritage has stood the company in good stead to tackle today’s problems including the importance of good stubble management and field hygiene and the demand for high output, reliable machines. Razorback is passionate about maintaining its high standard of quality and unrivalled customer support that sees its professional users get the backup they need. FG

Spal Automotive is offering an exclusive £2,500 scholarship to agricultural students in years two and four at Harper Adams University. Applicants were asked to explain how tractors and other agricultural machinery could be adapted to meet lower emissions standards set by Euro 6 and Stage 5 regulations. Spal UK managing director Matthew Morris said: “Meeting environmental challenges is at the forefront of studies at this specialist university and we are delighted to be able to share our experience of proven cooling technology as being part of the solution.” He added: “This venture is exciting for us as we have the opportunity to present Spal products to the next generation of engineers and see how they will tackle the environmental challenges of the future...”

Spal’s range of advanced technology brushless fans are increasingly being specified in electric vehicles used in farming and construction; while multi arrays of cleaner operation Spal fans are replacing heavy duty hydraulic fans – thereby helping to reduce vehicle emissions in compliance with Euro 6 regulations. Five candidates for the scholarship were interviewed in January and it will be awarded to the winner at a ceremony this month. Spal recently expanded its agricultural sector team, appointing Adam Betteridge (pictured) as business development manager for agriculture and off-highway aftermarkets. Spal, says Adam, is just the sort to put on his wellies to attend a tractor breakdown in the middle of a field, to help raise the profile of Spal parts. FG

Petrol post driver gets glowing customer review Challenging weather prompts early spring clean With the unprecedented amount of rainfall over the past few months, cultivation and drilling operations have been almost impossible for many. However, as soon as mother nature allows it will be all systems go, so now is a good time to service your farm equipment to avoid untimely breakdowns, according to lubricant manufacturer, the Witham Group. Routine oil changes are needed to ensure that farm equipment runs efficiently, so check the vehicle manual to see how often it needs changing. When you do need to change the oil, be sure to replace it with an oil that adheres to manufacturer specifications – ideally supplied by a reputable supplier that meets industry-quality standards. If you are changing the oil it is also

worth changing the filter too, as once it gets full it will start bypassing unfiltered oil directly back into the mix and could cause engine damage. Don’t forget the air filters, which prevent small particles from getting inside the engine and damaging internal components. It is wise to clean or replace them on a regular basis as they can get clogged with dust and make it harder for the engine to breathe, which is necessary to keep it running. Finally, remember to top up hydraulics. As well as engine oil, it is imperative to ensure tractors and other equipment have the correct hydraulic oil at a suitable level. Failure to do so puts pressure on pumps and can lead to costly contamination-related damage. FG






“There are other versions of petrol post knockers on the market, but as the old saying goes: you buy cheap, you buy twice.” A year on, business owner Michael says: “It’s the best thing we’ve ever bought – it works really well, and the amount of time it saves is unbelievable. It’s gotten to the point now where we’re doing jobs and we’re finishing earlier, and we actually think we’ve forgotten something because we’ve got so much time left... It’s great as it means we can go to the pub earlier, and Sean buysAdvert the beers!” Guide [QP] 15_01_20 VER FG 2 HR.pdf

A chance encounter at Midlands Machinery Show just over a year ago resulted in HG1 Communications, which installed speaker systems at the event, investing in an Easy Petrol Post Driver – a move that has saved them time and backbreaking work. The Easy Petrol Post Driver is an Australian-made machine that allows a single operator to knock any size post, peg or stake into the ground up to a 4in diameter. Working over 100 outdoor shows a year, Michael and Sean of HG1 are constantly on the go, installing and breaking down speaker systems – requiring intensive and demanding labour for the Harrogate-based business. During the 2018 show the pair were on their usual walk around, checking their speaker systems, when they saw a product demonstration underway on the Easy Petrol stand. The machine would mean their days of sledgehammering were over and they decided to invest. “It’s a big investment for a relatively small company, but it’s money well 2020 spent,-” they commented.

{farm sale} Modern machinery realises high prices at Notts farm dispersal sale A wide variety of lots, many of which were in tidy condition, was on offer at this farm sale which took place on a very welcome dry day during the late autumn. David Williams reports. The sale at The Cedars, Normantonon-Soar was on behalf of farmers KV Bonser who were retiring from their farm tenancy. Heavy rain showers during the days preceding the sale had made it very wet underfoot, but brighter, dry weather on the sale day encouraged high attendance which was further helped by it being too wet for farmers in the area to progress their own field work. The sale was organised by Melton Mowbray-based Auctioneers, Shouler & Son which had acted for the family over several decades - and included

tractors, implements and sundries from the mainly arable farm, as well as a small number of ‘included’ lots. Shouler & Son partner and auctioneer Ben Shouler described the sale as very successful, with many items achieving more than expected. “Our sales have a good reputation and those attending knew to expect a good mix of lots, with much of what was on offer in very tidy order. Buyers included farmers and trade who had travelled from all four corners of the UK, but most machinery probably ended up going direct to farms,” he explained.

With manual furrow-width adjustment and shear-bolt overload protection this tidy Kverneland LD85 5f reversible plough had been recently used. It made £2,200.

With 5,264hrs recorded, this Kubota KX71-2 360 digger sold for £5,500.

An 03-plate Discovery was one of the ‘included’ lots. It had an MOT valid until May 2020, had recorded 128,000 miles, and sold for £2,200.

This locally manufactured Knight Anglia 24m trailed sprayer had a 3,000-litre tank and a test certificate valid until Jan 2020. It made an impressive £5,800.

Star attractions included these very tidy Deutz-Fahr tractors and a Merlo telehandler.

This combined Kuhn HR4002 4m power-harrow with an Accord DA pneumatic drill sold for £5,200, with bidding almost certainly encouraged by the recent tricky crop establishment conditions.

The newest tractor was this 67-plate 126hp Deutz-Fahr 5125, in superb order having been on the farm from new and it carried its original AT Houghton dealer stickers. The tyres had 80 per cent tread and the winning bid was £32,850.

Vaderstad rolls are always in high demand and, despite this 9m set being elderly, it still made £1,900.

Spring Spraying Vicon’s iXtrack T series delivers a low and highly manoeuvrable trailed sprayer lineup, that is bristling with technology.

High-tech trailed and mounted sprayers

Vicon has overhauled its sprayer range, to include an all-new series of trailed sprayers called the iXtrack T. Farmers Guide took a look at the updates to the range. What started initially with the T3 has since evolved into a full range refresh, which now includes new T4 and T6 versions, giving the maker a spread of tank capacities from 2,600-litres up to 7,400-litres. And sharp-eyed readers may have already noticed the change in tank colour, from yellow to red, complimenting Vicon’s contemporary, high-tech approach. Where the iXtrack T3 offers tank capacities of 2,600-litres and 3,200-litres, the larger iXtrack T4 comes in with 3,400-litres, 4,000-litres and 4,600-litre tank sizes. At the top of the line-up is an all-new range-topper for those seeking big capacities. Called the iXtrack T6, this flagship trailed sprayer was announced at last November’s Agritechnica show and boasts models with 6,400-litre and 7,400-litre capacities. Vicon’s iXtrack T series represents the first of an all-new generation of high-tech trailed sprayers. Its design is one that has been engineered

to deliver a low, short and highly manoeuvrable trailed sprayer, and is based on a single-spine chassis. Key to the design is having the central frame produced from high strength, low alloyed heavy-duty steel. This affords a low centre of gravity with higher flexibility and durability than previous designs, making it more suited to the rigours of field work, in addition to high-speed road transport. Specification includes a suspended parallelogram rear frame to carry a variety of boom types. The rear frame also remains active on the road, offering a high degree of cushioning for booms when folded, and is particularly suited to tractors with higher transport speeds. In the field, this innovative design combines stability with soft boom balancing to minimise spray height deviation above the crop canopy. The result of the rear frame cushioning is improved application accuracy and greater boom stability.


• • • • •

While boom performance comes primarily from the new sprayer’s suspended parallelogram rear frame, its working height is managed by the dual, ultrasonic sensor-controlled Boom Guide Comfort. Buyers can choose from a more advanced three-sensor Boom Guide Pro version, offering positive and negative lateral movement on each side of the boom. A further development is Boom Guide ProActive, which gains two additional levelling sensors on wider

booms, allowing faster reaction to changes in ground terrain via the central slope correction cylinder. Typically, Boom Guide ProActive sees the installation of five ultrasonic sensors on a 36m boom. It uses the two outer sensors at the wider working width, switching to the two inner sensors when operating at 24m. A revised tank design, new chassis and rear frame all combine to deliver an overall width of 2.55m, and an continued over…

T4 model offers 3,400-, 4,000- and 4,600-litre tank sizes, and booms from 21–40m.

Spring Spraying

Low-ground pressure sprayer excels after wet conditions

Following some of the wettest autumn and winter conditions on record, the thought of having a lightweight sprayer that can get on the ground sooner than anything else becomes a very appealing option. This is where the Agribuggy excels, according to manufacturer McConnel. Designed from the ground up to be the ultimate low-ground pressure sprayer, the Agribuggy offers the highest power-to-weight ratio and lowest fuel consumption in its class, McConnel says. Average fuel consumption is around 70-litre/day compared to 150–200-litre/day for large hydrostatic sprayers. Positive mechanical drivelines further enhance the machine’s ability by improving traction and safety

when working on steep slopes – allowing it to reach places other machines can’t. It delivers great torque and grip, less wheel-spin and power transfer up to 25 per cent more efficient than a hydrostatic machine, the company says. Other key features include a low centre of gravity and perfect 50/50 weight distribution for maximum stability and traction. Aluminium booms come as standard for strength and longevity, while maintaining lightness and stability. Booms are available in 12 and 24m working widths. The Agribuggy also offers a Unique Comfort cab with 360-degree visibility, premium high back seat and greater space to ensure improved comfort, visibility and safety. Since it was introduced to the McConnel product range in 2017, the Agribuggy now comes with several extra benefits including a two-year warranty as standard and local dealer support. Extended warranty can cover up to five years and 5,000 hours have been added to the option list. FG

New crop sprayer proves popular at Lamma ’20 The new GM-R GX-Trail crop sprayer from GM-R Sprayers, which launched at Lamma ’20, was well received during the show, according to the company. It comes with a tank capacity of 3,600 litres and electronic and dry sight gauge as standard. The three-fold 24m boom is carried on pantograph suspension and is very close to the axle for correct balance of the whole sprayer in operation. When folded, it is very compact and has a transport width of around 2.45m. Auto boom levelling is an option, although the company says it was found to be unnecessary on its 24m boom, but came into its own on wider booms available to 36m. It uses the latest Muller touchscreen 800 series controller, coupled with joy stick control of all hydraulic functions and six section boom control. GPS guidance is standard, including 12 auto boom section controls. The steering axle gives very good stability over the old drawbar steering, especially for larger tanks

Making light work of a difficult season Reliability and efficiency are not the only requirements for Suffolk farmer and contractor Guy Hitchcock. Spending long hours in the operator seat means his machinery must also be a pleasure to use. David Williams reports. Trading as Hitchcock Farms, Ringshall, the family business involves Guy, his wife Liz, son William and daughter Katherine. Approximately 700ha is farmed which is a mix of owned and contractfarmed land. There is also a very successful contracting enterprise focussed around the area’s sugar beet crop, which started when Guy bought his first self-propelled Matrot harvester in the late 1980s. Now 1,200ha is lifted, including 160ha of the Hitchcock’s own crop, and regular customers include farms from near Bury St Edmunds in West Suffolk, to the coast.

Specialist service The family’s involvement with sugar beet isn’t just harvesting, and Guy drills approximately 500ha as well as preparing seedbeds for several farms. The latest six-row Holmer Exxact Terra Dos T4-30 harvester is Guy’s second of the model and the fourth Holmer, after a succession of Matrot machines. An articulated chassis and four-wheel steering provide excellent manoeuvrability and Terra Dos crab-steer mode evenly distributes the weight, reducing rutting and compaction. The

harvester arrived in September 2019 and has since worked almost 1,000 hours. “I believe it’s the best available,” explained Guy. “It’s ideal for our operation with plenty of power, and incredibly fuel efficient.” T4 series updates over previous models include a new engine, more efficient hydraulic drive, better manoeuvrability, and improved lifting performance.

Ease of use Guy said that the latest T4-30 is very user-friendly and the latest automatic steering and lifter depth adjustment reduce fatigue. “A foliage sensor at the front of the topper follows the rows and signals from potentiometers on the shear lifting units measure side forces,” explained Guy. “Between them they calculate the optimum position for the harvester and align the chassis to suit. Apart from during headland turns I rarely touch the steering wheel, even in heavy, wet conditions and that is something that has impressed users of other brands who have spent time in the cab with me.” Guy’s earlier harvesters had depth wheels

The harvester has a British Sugar-sponsored motif on the rear. “Sugar beet is an important part of British farming and we wanted to make the most of time travelling on the road by encouraging the public to associate our activities and beet in the field with a bag of Silver Spoon sugar,” Guy explained. “British Sugar had no hesitation getting involved.”

Sugar Beet on the lifting unit, but these are missing from his current machine with the topper and lifting unit linkage-mounted on the front chassis instead. “I wouldn’t go back to depth wheels,” he commented. “Without them, header performance is improved, there is no risk of them blocking or hitting obstructions and operation is easier.” The shares have Holmer’s EasyLift automatic depth control with independent lifter adjustment also possible through the main joystick. This allows compensation for beet rows of uneven depth against a wheeling, for example. “In practice I never use the manual independent adjustment as the automatic system copes so well,” said Guy.

Efficient cleaning Soils in Guy’s contracting area range from sand to heavy clay, and lifting shares are preferred to Oppel wheels. The latest T4 harvesters feature seven pre-cleaning rollers which accept beet from the lifters and transfer it to the main cleaning turbines. Previous models had six, and Guy said the extended cleaning section improves performance. The main cleaning area is also improved with larger turbines – up to 1,700mm diameter and a 900mm wide transfer web. From the in-cab display the user can adjust each turbine and web to achieve the cleaning action required. A clear view of the lifting shares allows issues to be spotted quickly, and Guy’s harvester also has on-board cameras monitoring the web cleaning area. The tapered body allows good visibility along the sides of the machine, although Guy also has side and rear cameras providing an all-around ‘overhead’ image displayed on the dedicated incab screen.

Management information A new feature is Holmer EasyHelp 4.0. This telematics package is still in development and Guy doesn’t yet have immediate access to the data produced, although he expects the information available to appeal to his customers. Service information includes engine and machine system performance data. Service requirements can be monitored, allowing maintenance planning around work schedules. Remote diagnostics allows technicians to log in and check for faults, potentially reducing downtime for repairs. Task management recording includes machine location and job progress. The information can be accessed from anywhere with an internet connection and work data can be downloaded onto farm management systems through the Agrirouter data exchange, by the owner and authorised third parties. A feature Guy would like included is yield mapping. “It would be useful for my own crops as well as for my customers’, and although I’m told that it’s in development, it’s not yet available,” he added.

Nothing to dislike Asked what improvements are needed for future Holmer harvesters, Guy said there is nothing he considers a problem. “It’s a great design and very

reliable,” he said. “This season’s working conditions were some of the worst since I started in the 1980s, but the harvester coped well, the cab was comfortable and quiet, and the automation made the job easier. Because I never feel I’m fighting the machine I relax at home in the evening and the next morning look forward to another day in the cab. Holmer has the design right. We usually update the machine every two years and the cost is reasonable. Agrifac UK’s back-up is excellent, and repairs and servicing are carried out quickly and efficiently. They are great to deal with and I don’t need to consider other options.” FG

Sugar Beet

New high-tech beet lifter arrives in the UK After launching at Agritechnica in November, the first Tiger 6S self-propelled sugar beet lifter has arrived in the UK for demonstrations of its high-tech features. Tiger 6S reads all measured values within a split second and – with the aid of the newly developed software – changes the defoliator height or the lifting depth of the individual rows. The combination and interaction of both systems significantly relieves the driver, which allows partly autonomous guiding of the lifter attachment. Topping losses due to changes in the condition of the crop are avoided without stress for the driver, despite the reduction in the size of cut-off leaf stalks. This prevents not only the unnecessary pickup of soil by the lifting share and increased fuel consumption due to excessively deep lifting, but also root fracture of the beet if harvesting too flat. Sales manager for Ropa beet harvesters at CTM Root Crop Systems, Simon Peacock, is currently trying out the new advancements for himself. Simon will then be able to pass on first-hand information about the benefits to clients wanting to trade up to a new Ropa Tiger 6S. FG

German beet specialist Ropa presented the Tiger 6S at Agritechnica, demonstrating new high-tech features that aim for a better harvest quality and significantly easier operation. Two new developments that automatically adjust the working depths of the harvesting attachment are the R-Trim – which auto-adjusts the defoliator height – and R-Contour, which automatically shares depth adjustment of the individual rows at the RR lifting unit. Both systems adapt their working depth to the changing conditions in the beet crop throughout the field. The automatic systems react to different crown heights or to ground unevenness crosswise to the direction of travel. The currently used measuring system at the scalper has been extended by an additional measuring system for recording the ground contour directly at the beet rows. A new powerful on-board computer on the lifting unit of the

Sugar Beet

KWS offers three tolerant varieties this year following inoculated trials, which show good tolerance to BYMV and are yield competitive. The threat of virus yellows is arguably the biggest danger to the sugar beet sector in Europe and nowhere is this risk being felt more acutely than in the UK. A broad range of plant species either harbour the virus or provide sanctuary for vectors during the winter months, while our maritime climate ensures we rarely receive the harsh weather needed to stem aphid populations. Protecting crops against this complex of viruses that can reduce yields by up to 50 per cent is made more difficult by the spread of insecticide resistance among the principal vector, the peach-potato aphid (Myzus persicae). About 90 per cent of peach-potato aphid are resistant to carbamate and pyrethroid insecticides. Finding a solution to this problem is undoubtedly the breeding challenge of our time. The introduction of the first neonicotinoid seed treatments in the mid1990s relieved much of the pressure on breeders to develop sources of virus yellows tolerance, but it does not mean that all progress has been lost, as Ben Bishop (right), UK country manager for KWS sugar beet, explains. “Even as neonic seed treatments were gaining popularity across Europe, KWS was developing virus

tolerant varieties. In 2003 we had Jemina KWS, a variety with tolerance to beet mild yellowing virus (BYMV), in official trials. BYMV is a persistent form of virus yellows and has been found to cause losses of up to 30 per cent,” he says. Once it became clear however, that the EU was seeking to withdraw

Jemina KWS was a useful starting point and meant the company didn’t have to screen wild relatives of the crop for sources of tolerance, says Mr Bishop. “KWS has made rapid progress in meeting the needs of UK growers,” he adds. “Following two years of inoculated trials in the UK, we had two tolerant varieties in official trials during 2019 and will have three in 2020. All have demonstrated good tolerance to BYMV and are yield competitive, even under non-inoculated conditions, so will form a valuable component on an integrated strategy.” FG

The ‘thoroughbred’ sugar beet drill The key to high yield is placing seed at a consistent depth with accurate spacing and even soil-to-seed contact, according to Steve Twist, managing director of specialist importers Toucan Farm Machinery. He added: “Seventy per cent of your potential yield has been decided by the time you leave the field with your precision drill.” Precision planter specialist Monosem produces the latest Meca V4E ‘thoroughbred sugar beet drill’, which Toucan says is the best

high-speed drill available for sugar beet. A large-diameter five cell seed disc not only singulates the seeds but also gives the seed a velocity matching ground speed. This ‘deaddrop’ ensures the most accurate seed spacing and depth, giving the best possible seed placement into a narrow soil seed groove, unlike a high velocity blown seed which has to lose its additional speed, with potential bounce and loss of accuracy. The range is available with

traditional mechanical drive row units or the latest Isobus, AEFapproved, electric drive versions, enabling tramlining to match any sprayer pattern, and maintaining plant size alongside the missing row through automatic seed rate increase. It also provides (TC-SC) which allows individual rows to be switched off to avoid ‘over-sowing’ on the headlands, and Geo-control

(TC-GEO), which enables variable seed rate control in accordance with prescribed field maps. All Monosem drills parallel fold (stack horizontally), not tipping the row units on their sides, to avoid damaging side forces on the row units. FG

Grain Handling, Drying & Storage

Drying and conditioning grain post-harvest for safe long-term storage Two 4808 Sukup Europe drying silos in north Lincolnshire supplied through dealer McArthur Agriculture. Each silo has a storage capacity of 1000t.

Farmers spend the best part of 9-10 months nurturing crops from drilling to harvest – so how should this valuable commodity be treated and stored once it’s off the field? Rachel Hicks reports. Safe and effective grain storage postharvest is key to ensuring quality and minimising risk. As soon as grain leaves the field, it should be treated as a food crop and stored accordingly to reduce risk through the food chain and safeguard consumers. With the main causes of spoilage in stored grain being fungi, insects and mites, the drying and cooling process is key. Chemical treatment is limited by both food safety legislation and failure due to resistance development, so physical control methods and an integrated pest management system are vital. While grain that is sold off-farm before November poses less of a storage risk, it also can command a lower price per tonnage, so many farmers are now storing grain longer in the hope they can achieve almost double the premium with a May movement.

According to Sukup Europe Ltd’s UK sales manager John Statt (right), while there are UK farmers out there who are very good at drying and conditioning their harvested crops, others have very little knowledge about this very important part of post-harvest commodity care. John says: “Although UK farms have moved with the times in many areas and heavily invested in cultivation machinery and precision equipment for drilling, spraying and fertiliser application, and they have also increased output capacity greatly in the field at harvest with large output combines, unfortunately grain drying and storage equipment has lagged well behind in investment in both infrastructure and technology.

“Many UK farms have seen little investment in post-harvest equipment or storage facilities since the 80s and 90s and, as the output of combines has greatly increased over this time, the grain dryer or intakes have increasingly become the bottleneck in otherwise high output systems.” Many buildings with onfloor drying systems that were constructed 20 or more years ago are no longer even high enough to tip the latest generation of grain trailer in, which sit higher on their chassis to accommodate larger wheels and tyres used to reduce ground compaction and damage to soil structure in the field. Yet few farmers seem willing to make the investment in new systems. “Availability of skilled labour is also becoming an issue on many farms, and older grain dryers that require a man to constantly monitor them is not only draining in labour resources, it’s also costly. Equally, the floor stores with driveover drying floors are often seen as the quick ‘tip and go’ solution in the UK. In years where little or no drying is required they generally are, but grain also needs to be pushed up with a grain pusher on a telehandler, which again takes more labour and obviously requires a telehandler, too. This common practice can also lead to compaction problems in wetter years, in stores not fitted with grain stirrers when grain comes into store

at 17.5 per cent moisture content or higher, leading to problems with both the drying and conditioning process,” explains John. “Those farmers with expertise in this field would always avoid doing this – instead, using a mobile rubber belt elevator, auger, grain thrower or overhead conveying systems to drop the grain in from above to fill the store and avoid the compaction from happening.” It’s the knowledge, experience and attention to detail such as this which will create the most benefit in terms of efficiencies. Further efficiencies can also be made with energy efficient drying and low labour systems. The UK grows some of the world’s largest crops in terms of tonnes per hectare, which creates a substantial surplus for trade. While we are yet to see what our future trading relationship will be with our European cousins when we leave the EU, UK farmers need to find a way to successfully compete in the world market as a whole, against grain produced in the Black Sea areas and North America where growing costs are usually much lower and trading prices are reduced, too. On this note, John continues: “For us to successfully compete in these markets, we will have to add value to our exportable surplus in quality, assurance and traceability, and this will require improved knowledge in maximising the value of those crops once it has left the combine and enters the grain store. “Marketing skills will also have to improve and farmers will potentially have to store grain longer to get the maximum benefit of selling quality grain at market peaks.” FG

Grain Handling, Drying & Storage

Insulation: Could it save your grain? Keeping a stable temperature in your grain store is key to preventing spoilage, so it’s worth thinking about any improvements you can make to your buildings. Riva Commercial explains how installing closed cell spray insulation can eliminate condensation, control mould and fungal growth, and maintain temperatures in winter and summer. With the start of the harvest approaching in a few months, now is a good time to look at your grain store and make any necessary improvements. Maintaining a stable temperature is key to crop quality and reducing the risk of losses – as is good store hygiene, ventilation and a watertight roof. Choosing to store grain comes with economic benefits as it does 69617

not have to be sold for harvest movement and later delivery generally attracts a higher price. Storage comes with its own set of challenges, however. The main causes of spoilage in stored grain are fungi, mites and insects, according to AHDB. At certain temperatures and moisture content, fungal growth can occur rapidly and lead to the production of

the mycotoxin, ochratoxin A. Insect and mite development is also a risk in higher temperatures, while in winter, the grain surface absorbs moisture. Climate change could present further challenges in achieving cooling targets in the future, if predicted temperature increases are correct, AHDB says. With this in mind, it is well worth investing some time in making improvements to your store now, to help prevent these issues. Installing good quality insulation not only reduces your heating and cooling bills, it also helps to maintain a stable temperature – keeping stores warm in winter and cooler in summer – reducing the impact of environmental temperatures on your grain.

Riva installs Walltite closed cell spray foam insulation, which uses cutting edge technology to control and deplete mould and fungal growth, eliminating airborne mould spores. It also promises zero condensation, reduces heat loss by up to 60 per cent, avoids overheating during the summer, improves indoor air quality and offers protection from severe weather and flooding resistance. By reducing the need for heating in winter and fans in summer, the system can reduce energy bills by half, according to the company. Liquid installation means the spray technology can access critical, inaccessible or curved areas, sealing off all gaps and air leaks. And, as it has no food value, it can help to eliminate infestations. FG

Technology using moisture sensors and automated control software can improve accuracy and save valuable time spent monitoring and managing dryers, according to Kentra Grain Systems. Kentra’s Dryer Master DM510 control system promises to provide reliable grain drying with minimal manual intervention. A moisture sensor installed in the conveyor line takes grain from the dryer, while an inlet sensor, usually fitted at the top of a continuous flow dryer, can detect changes in the moisture content of incoming grain. Control software uses readings from these sensors to calculate the residence time needed to hit an average target moisture and automatically adjusts the discharge rate accordingly. Both sensors automatically compensate for grain temperature to ensure accurate readings and the post-drying sensor is simple to calibrate. Kentra managing director Barry Higginbottom says: “The ability to predict when, say, wetter incoming grain will fill the dryer takes all the guesswork out of managing the system and results in more accurate and consistent drying.” The company does not recommend taking a ‘set and forget’ approach – it is good practice to have someone supervise the drying operation and repeat the sensor calibration two or three times a day. “But the accuracy of this automated control system will

give the store supervisor confidence to attend to other aspects of harvest management without neglecting the dryer,” Barry adds. According to Kentra, the system also offers significant cost savings. Manual grain dryer management involves responding to samples taken after the grain has dried. To avoid being caught out there is a tendency to be cautious, resulting in grain being dried beyond the optimum, which is costly in energy and weight loss. Barry explains: “Assuming a grain price of £100/t, a farm drying 20,000t of grain has only to save one per cent moisture in over-drying to regain £20,000 in lost revenue. A farm drying 4–5,000t of grain a year would recoup the £10,000–£12,000 purchase of a Dryer Master system in three years – a bigger operator even sooner – while also saving time and hassle at harvest.” The Dryer Master display provides a quick view of drying status and settings, a manual option for operators who prefer to make their own discharge rate decisions, a number of alarm alerts and a printout for records. If internet access is available, the display is accessible on a farm office computer or remotely via a smartphone or other mobile device. FG

Grain Handling, Drying & Storage

Working with farmers to boost production

Partnership allows complete grain solution A new partnership has seen UK manufacturer Perry of Oakley Ltd team up with SiloMaster, to offer their customers a complete grain handling, drying and storage solution. Perry of Oakley has more than 70 years of experience as a manufacturer of materials handling and drying equipment, while SiloMaster’s team of engineers has been designing and manufacturing silos for over 50 years. This partnership will allow the two companies to offer a complete solution and support other dealers – from concept, to layout and design, through to manufacture, supply, installation and ongoing support.

SiloMaster has developed a new range of flat bottom and hopper bottom silos, to which Perry of Oakley has some exclusive rights. The silos will be designed and manufactured to the highest specification, with an ethos of ‘on time, right the first time,’ the company says. They will be adorned with both the Perry and SiloMaster logos, as a symbol of the companies’ new cooperation. Perry’s full product range includes continuous mixed flow driers, belt driers, chain and flight conveyors, belt and bucket elevators and belt conveyors, among other drying and handling solutions for grain and bulk materials. FG

For over 50 years, multi-disciplinary engineering firm, Edwards Engineering, has worked with farms and farmers across the UK. With high levels of service and, most importantly, effective solutions, the Edwards’ team recognises the need to ensure any works undertaken don’t affect production or quality, delivering successful operations, such as upgrading grain dryers, replacing aging equipment and expanding stores, whilst creating minimal disruption to the important production schedule. Edwards works with leading grain equipment manufacturers including Cimbria, Skandia, Guttridge, Svegma, Alvan Blanch, Perry and Carier. Edwards Engineering managing director Sandy Kirk, said: “As a fully independent business, we offer professional, impartial advice that delivers the best result, whatever form that takes. We’re not tied to any one manufacturer and have our own drawing office and extensive fabrication facilities allowing us to respond rapidly.” From small farmers to large scale

projects with grain co-operatives and traders, new builds to replacements and upgrades, every customer and project is important. Edwards Engineering is determined to ensure completion on every contract on time, to the agreed specification and within budget. H&K Farms, Lockerbie, said: “Edwards Engineering supported us with the installation of a Charlesfield Farm Grain Dryer. The team was amazing and very conscientious. To think that we did not have a single hiccup is a miracle these days. I cannot recommend them highly enough.” FG

Grain Handling, Drying & Storage

Versatile dryer a popular choice post-harvest

udrey & Son L a V t



As producers of post-harvest equipment, Alvan Blanch manufactures the Continuous Double Flow grain dryer, which, according to the company, can process any combineharvestable crop, no matter how wet or dirty. Alvan says the dryer is highly fuel efficient, versatile and has automated control options, making it a popular choice for farmers. In partnership with Soby, the company offers a complete grain handling solution – with conveyors, augers and elevators designed to work in conjunction with the drier. The Rotary Cleaners and Aspirators are available in six different models, with two size

options per model (plus the choice of two, three, or four screens). They are designed for powerful pre-cleaning and seed cleaning/grading. Interchangeable screens allow for the processing of multiple grains, all in one machine. Alvan Blanch also offers a complete range of farm machinery, including: Mixers, Hammermills and Roller-Mills – a range that is designed to allow on-farm grain processing and feed milling. Through utilising homegrown grain, the costs are reduced and the quality of the feed for livestock has provenance. Every piece of machinery is built to last, the company says, usually providing over 40 years of reliable service. All solutions are custom built, whilst promising to remain simple to use and maintain. Through Alvan Blanch’s nationwide network of dealers, and its service engineering team, annual drier servicing and technical support are provided. An internal parts department also ensures farmers can source parts for their machines. FG

Take noise issues into account So many of Bennett and Co’s projects require some noise attenuation, as stores get larger and require bigger fans – whether grain, potato or onion stores. Similarly, large continuous flow dryers that might be running all night during harvest. With planners looking at this in far more detail, fully cognisant of the requirements of the National Planning Framework and the British Standards referred to for rating and assessing noise coming from grain stores and the like, it is important that this noise (and its likely effect on surrounding residents and even wildlife) is taken into account at the outset of a new project. Bennett and Co has considerable experience in looking at these noise issues in the early stages of a new project or in designing ways to reduce the noise of an existing facility or upgrade. Solutions may just involve resiting the proposed development or correct fan selection. Alternatively, longer silencers on axial fan units, box silencers or acoustic louvres on air intakes, acoustic fences or earth bunds, or noise

insulating fan houses can reduce noise to acceptable levels. If you are planning a project, whether for grain, potatoes or vegetables, visit the Bennett and Co website to see more details of recent projects and submit your email address in order to receive a quarterly newsletter, Crop Storage Update.

Grain Handling, Drying & Storage

Wireless-style fan automation Grain store specialists Evans and Pearce developed a system to turn grain ventilation fans into automated units, capable of cooling crops without the high costs usually associated with wireless temperature control. Four years on, the company says it has won praise from users for its sensible approach to fan automation and simplicity of use. Evans and Pearce is encouraging growers to consider the now-proven system, called Grain Fan Assist, as a genuine alternative to more costly wireless systems. Each fan is fitted with a control box that takes a signal from an ambient air temperature sensor and a grain temperature probe. The controller monitors the difference in air and crop temperatures, triggering fans to operate when air is cold enough to effectively cool. As external temperatures rise, the fan switches itself off to avoid warmer air being blown through the crop – a technique that has been shown by AHDB to reduce energy usage by up to 40 per cent. It can be fitted to any number

Storage: Minimising waste, maximising returns

of new or existing fans for around £250 and requires little, if any, input from an electrical contractor. Stores fitted with additional extraction fans to draw clean air into the building, can be further enhanced with Extraction Fan Assist, to wirelessly detect when any grain ventilation fans are operating. This triggers the main extraction unit into life and ensures synchronised running of grain and building ventilation fans – all essential to keep costs down and cooling rates up. A variant called Multi Fan Hub is also available so that multiple fans can be automated from a central control panel – each built to customer requirements. FG

Planning for harvest is a continual cycle and with many crops taking 11 months to grow, it is essential that your hard work is supported by the perfect storage solution, says Graham Heath Construction. Many external factors can affect a crop once it is in storage – from moisture, fungi, mites and general hygiene; through to pests and structural issues, such as bowing walls and leaking roofs. It is therefore essential that suitable storage conditions are created to minimise waste and maximise returns. Storing grain in tired buildings that allow access to the elements will only cause problems. Damp conditions act as a breeding ground for many species of insects and although drying the grain after combining will slow down insect development, it is essential that moisture content is kept to 12 per cent to minimise the risk. A new grain store will offer a clean, dry, well-ventilated and watertight construction. High quality CE-marked steel and materials will prevent rain and other such weather penetrating the building. Quality roofing will also

reduce or eliminate birds and pests from gaining access. Concrete panels are a key feature in Graham Heath Construction grain stores. They are easy to clean, hygienic and exceptionally durable, withstanding the force of a grain harvest with ease. Concrete panels are also quick and easy to install, simply slotting between steel supports. From the steel frames to the concrete panels, the key elements of every Graham Heath building are produced at its UK site. FG

Grain Handling, Drying & Storage

Protect your stores from insect attacks A significant quantity of the world’s grain is lost each year during storage, largely due to insect attacks. It is therefore essential that grain storage buildings are cleaned out before use, says Pan Agriculture Ltd. Grainstore is a Deltamethrinbased insecticide, developed by the company, that controls a wide range of insects including grain moths, Indian meal moths, flour beetles, sawtoothed grain beetles, grain weevils, bean weevils,

rice moths, grain borers and warehouse moths. The product’s mode of action is through direct contact and ingestion. It has no with-holding period and requires just one application per year. It is available in two formulations, both offering high protection against stored grain pests, Pan Agri says. Grainstore 25EC can be used diluted as an admixture, or as a treatment for grain storage buildings and equipment, but it can also be applied directly to the grain. The fabric of the building should be treated 3–4 weeks before storing the grain. This formulation offers grain protection for up to two months. Meanwhile, Grainstore ULV is a ready-to-use insecticide which does not require additional water. It can be used as an admixture and can be applied directly to bulk grain. It offers up to 12 months’ protection against crawling insects and up to three months’ protection against flying insects. The ULV formulation is ideal for use by contractors using low volume foggers. FG

Insect fumigation and colour sorter tackle rejected loads Crop production company L F Pearce & Son has added a Satake colour sorter to its portfolio of products, making it possible to remove vomitoxin, fusarium, ergot and discoloured or damaged grain. The sorter also has the ability to ensure accurate admixture removal and species separation, plus bushel weight and Hagberg improvement. This can enhance the crop value as well as avoiding costly crop penalties and increasing the premiums paid to growers. For farmers facing challenges with rejected loads from bugs in crops, the company offers insect fumigation using K-Obiol ULV6, which is applied on intake of the crop and then cleaned through the Westrupp

Grain Handling, Drying & Storage

Bulk grain drying: Overcoming challenges the risk of rejected loads. Available in 4–16m, the stirrer can improve the efficiency of bulk drying stores and boost drying rates by as much as 50 per cent, the company says. The machine is switched on at the control panel and automatically travels between moveable end stops, covering around 40ft/hr.

The fully automated Rekord Grain Stirrer promises to overcome the challenges of drying grain in bulk by preventing grain capping and crop compaction, as well as reducing the static air pressure – which significantly increases airflows. The crop is dried evenly, according to Rekord Ltd, making sampling easier and reducing

Variable pitch augers can work in crop depths from 4–14ft and draw grain along the entire length of the auger, ensuring total mixing of grain to the full depth of the crop. As there is no longer a drying front or risk of capping, a controlled higher air temperature can be applied, Rekord explains. The standard stirrer has two

carriages and four augers, while the smallest has one carriage and two augers. On request, the company can supply a stirrer with three carriages and six augers. Rekord supplies a comprehensive range of agricultural machinery, including power harrows, mini balers, balers and rollers. FG

Grain Handling, Drying & Storage

Going against the grain Broomex C-Max push brooms are different from others – designed with patented side retainers to hold bulk volumes of material in front of the brush, the C-Max avoids spillage at the sides. Coupled with the ease and speed of mounting the brush to a telehandler, skidsteer, fork lift or category II three-point hitch, this makes the C-Max the ideal broom for anything from large-scale grain moving and clear-up, to a whole range of uses around the farm. The end brushes are carefully twisted so they pull material away from a wall or curb, sweeping it into the main path of the broom. With no belts, chains, pulleys or anything else to potentially create

down time, and no flying debris, the C-Max is safe and maintenance-free. Hardwearing polypropylene bristles with a high-tensile steel broom head and mounting hardware, in a heavy-duty powder coated finish, ensure the brooms are durable, designed to sweep up to 450 miles before changing bristles. The broom also provides a squeegee effect on wet floors. Broomex bristles are so rigid that the brooms stand on their own weight, meaning they don’t have to be placed in some kind of stand when not in use. Available in 1.5m, 1.8m and 2.4m widths, the Broomex C-Max demonstrates how a broom can be different and yet very effective. FG

Latest addition to grain drying range Mobile batch grain dryers from Italian manufacturer Mecmar are the most recent addition to Morgan Farm Machinery’s range. The dryers have capacities ranging from 7–55t, with the most popular sizes being 20, 24 and 35t electric automatic dryers. When used in conjunction with a loading hopper or trench conveyor, these will automatically load, dry, cool and empty. Having a setup such as this can create a ‘tip and go’ system. The range includes models that can handle both small and large batches of grain and are easily transportable, making them a great option for farms of various sizes, Morgan says. Automatic drying systems also offer continuous operation that can be linked to a grain handling system. Burners stop

research organisation, where the tyres recorded a seven per cent gain in productivity. The performance benefits also include up to 25 per cent reduction in the inflation pressure compared to some VF rated tyres, and the increase in the footprint area can be up to 15 per cent. Other benefits claimed for Traxion Optimall tyres include a longer working life achieved by boosting the rubber content in the tread compound, and an improved carcass structure has also produced greater stability when the tractor is used for road travel. The tyres are suitable for medium- and high-horsepower tractors, with 10 sizes available ranging from the 1,590mm diameter VF 600/70 R30, to the range-topping VF 900/60 R42 with a 2,160mm diameter. The farming industry makes an important contribution to the 50,000 or more new tyres supplied each year by Suffolk-based Treadfirst. The company is based in Sudbury and operates through a network of depots which are supplemented by a fleet of service vans available on a 24/7 basis. continued over…

Tyres and tracks is the topic for this month’s Power on the Land, brought to you as always by Mike Williams. The upward trend in tractor power is an important factor in tyre development, and some of the recent arrivals in the tyre market are designed to cope with the power and weight of big tractors. The newest addition to the popular Agrimax Force series in the BKT tyre range is the IF 750/75 R46 size, designed for tractors of 250hp+. Announced at last year’s SIMA show in Paris, the tyre diameter is 2.3m, making it the biggest radial BKT

has produced, and it is designed to provide a high flotation capacity by producing a larger footprint and operating at a lower inflation pressure than standard tyres carrying the same load. The maximum speed capability is 70kph and the load capacity can be up to 13,300kg, depending on inflation pressure and travel speed. BKT is an Indian-based company specialising in tyres for off-highway applications, including tractors and other farm equipment. they operate

internationally, with products sold in more than 160 countries. The design improvements introduced on the Traxion Optimall VF series tyres from Apollo Vredestein earned a gold medal award for innovation at last year’s Lamma event. The benefits offered by the new tyres can include a seven per cent reduction in fuel consumption for field work, a claim supported by results achieved during tests carried out by Germany’s DLG farm machinery

Tyres & Tracks Waste tyre recycling service

The farm-based Brocks Wheel & Tyre company also supplies and fits rubber tracks. …from previous page

The Treadfirst agricultural business covers tyres for specialist machinery such as ATVs and trailers as well as tractors, and they supply tyres from most of the leading manufacturers. A more recent addition to their agricultural business is supplying rubber tracks for the increasing number of tracklaying tractors and vehicles such as self-propelled harvesters. While selling and fitting tyres is Treadfirst’s main activity, they also offer a long list of other vehicle-based services ranging from puncture repairs to dealing with battery and exhaust system problems plus servicing air conditioning units, and, for the farm’s pick-up truck, they can also look after the MOT testing or balance the wheels. The introduction of steel reinforced rubber tracks by Caterpillar on their Challenger 65 tractor in 1987 was an immensely important advance in power farming technology, bringing major benefits compared with the traditional steel tracks used previously. The new rubber tracks were soon a popular choice on tractors and on self-propelled machinery, including combines and root crop harvesters, and the increasing popularity of the new tracks has provided an additional growth market for the Brocks Wheel & Tyre business. The Brocks Wheel & Tyre company,

which has close links with the J Brock & Sons company selling new and used tractors and agricultural machinery, has its headquarters on the Brock family farm at Thaxted, Essex. For the rubber track side of the business, they offer a wide choice of different makes, and they can supply either a set of tracks or complete track system. Tyremart is part of the ADR group of companies, and they operate a nationwide distribution service specialising in axles, steering gear and other wheel-related products. The steering axles they offer include both self-steer and controlled steer applications, and their EU-approved rigid axles with load capacities from 500kg to 30t are said to offer the biggest selection available. There is also a comprehensive choice of suspension systems, covering both mechanical and hydraulic operation and suitable for single-, twin- and triple-axle units. The list of ADR equipment distributed by Tyremart also includes the Soil products series, a range of special semi-axles and hubs designed to meet the demanding requirements for wheels on cultivation implements. The ability to operate in a harsh environment that will include dust, stones and mud is essential, and the ADR Soil products feature special seals to protect the bearings and reduce the risk of damage. FG

Tyre recycling company Envirotyre UK is one of the only companies in the country that can collect the full range of agri tracks from any site in England, using its own fleet of vehicles. Founded in 2002, it provides a collection and recycling service to a wide range of users and is Lincolnshire’s only waste tyre disposal company to have a full Environment Agency permit. It can process all tyres, from bicycles to earthmovers and everything in between – as well as construction and agricultural tracks. It has processed waste tractor and truck tyres since it began 16 years ago. The company also has a fully calibrated weighbridge on site. With many years’ experience and a fleet of lorries and vans for

scrap tyre collection, Envirotyre says it can manage contaminated and mixed loads, accepting any size or weight. Farmers can make use of daily, weekly, fortnightly, or monthly collection options. Prices are either per tyre or per tonne, and discounts are given to customers who want bulk tyre disposal or those who deliver used tyres to the site. The company also provides rubber sidewall covers for silage pits, which it says have many advantages, including being highly cost effective. Envirotyre’s purpose-built recycling site sits beside the main A17 (North/South) trunk road, one mile from the main A52 (East/ West) trunk road, four miles west of Boston in Lincolnshire. FG

Tyres & Tracks Tyre company looks to roll out agricultural expertise Family-run business Lodge Tyre Company is looking to roll out its agricultural expertise after a series of acquisitions made it one of the UK’s largest independent tyre retail and service providers. Until recently, the company operated almost entirely in the West Midlands, but in August 2017 it acquired the shares of Kingsway Tyres (Stamford), a similar business in the East Midlands and East Anglia regions. Further acquisitions have given the group a growing 50-store network, with depots as far apart as Carlisle and Anglesey, Norwich and Droitwich.

As a result, Lodge says it has significant buying power with all key distributors and a wealth of knowledge to assist end users in making better tyre-buying decisions. It promises to meet a variety of tyre requirements, from all-terrain 4x4 tyres or specialist tractor tyres. Within the Lodge sales team there is a specialist agricultural tyre unit, headed up by Stuart Sharpe of Fakenham – who has more than 40 years’ experience in the industry – supported by Ian Sharman and Richard Foster. As Kingsway Tyres – which is now trading under the Lodge Tyre branding – the team has long supported the Royal Norfolk Show, giving East Anglian farmers and growers the opportunity to discuss their tyre issues with experts over a cup of tea. The group also recently supported the Bridgestone marketing initiative for VT tractor tyres, which saw a tractor travel from John O’Groats to Land’s End on a single set of low compaction Bridgestone VT tyres. FG

Maxam Tire International has announced an ongoing partnership with Brocks Wheels & Tyres (BWT), for the distribution of its full agricultural tyre portfolio. Based in Essex, BWT has grown from a family-run farming business to one of the UK’s largest dedicated wheel and tyre distributors for the agricultural market. Maxam Tire, based in the US but with international offices in Birmingham, has a dedicated team of product, application and manufacturing engineers who simultaneously design tyres and develop manufacturing processes, using state-of-theart facilities and equipment, to

produce the entire Maxam line. The company says its tyres are manufactured using top quality materials, as well as the latest equipment and technology. Stringent quality controls cover every phase of the process, from testing raw materials, to the final inspection of the finished product. Maxam business development director, Jeff Hughes, who covers the UK market, said: “We are delighted with the development of our partnership with such a professional outfit as BWT. We are constantly seeking enhanced partner relationships, and we hope our new arrangement with BWT will bring long-term mutual benefits.” FG

Water-heating micro wind turbine launches Upgrade options bring new life to turbines A new water- or space-heating micro wind turbine package is now available from manufacturer FuturEnergy. It is the first of its kind as it focuses directly on producing heat, either connected to a water tank immersion heater or an electric heating radiator. The AirForce Controller is unique as it can extract more energy from the wind than a typical ‘off-grid’ battery charging system. It does so by precisely controlling the rotor speed of the turbine to perfectly match wind speeds at any given time, with the supplied wind sensor, ensuring maximum rotor efficiency and also, due to speed control, the

ability to operate in much stronger weather conditions where other turbines would need to shut down. According to the company, the system is a great way to utilise renewable energy at low cost – avoiding the need for expensive battery systems to store generated energy. Instead, the energy is stored as hot water or used for simple space heating, which is one of the main energies used in the home. Typical applications for the product include off-grid building heating or water heating and reducing fuel or electricity cost by supplementing heating of any building in a good wind speed area. A free android and iOS app are now available so the system can be controlled and monitored remotely. The package includes AirForce1 Wind Turbine, Airforce Controller V4 and Anemometer. Additionally, up to three temperature sensors can be connected to the controller, which can be used to stop heating should a required temperature be reached. FG

Wind turbine owners left without support after Endurance went out of business in 2016 now have repair and upgrade options open to them – thanks to nationwide renewables specialist Natural Generation Ltd. When Endurance closed in 2016, UK turbine owners who had invested in their 55–85kW machines were left exposed as problems began to affect their machines. The biggest of the issues were cracks in the bed frames, broken shafts and cracks in the blades. Some machines failed and others were shut down for safety.

Natural Generation, specialists in the operation and maintenance of solar and wind energy systems, has invested £1million in spares and built a network of suppliers, to offer a full range of new and upgraded parts. “We’ve worked hard to bring together a supply chain and stockholding system that lets us minimise the time it takes to get a turbine back earning money,” says managing director Ivor Thomson. Typical parts required include new stronger bed frames, uprated shafts and bearings and reengineered blades. A full upgrade takes about a week and there is a range of maintenance contracts available. All contracts now include as standard 24/7 remote monitoring 365 days a year. FG An upgraded E3120 turbine.

Dairy 2020: How housing can boost productivity As we move out of a year of instability for the dairy sector, experts are predicting greater optimism for 2020; but it goes without saying that the sector will continue to face challenges and opportunities, particularly when it comes to environmental issues. Sarah Kidby looks ahead at the coming year and explores how housing adaptions can boost productivity. AHDB’s head of market specialists for dairy and livestock, Chris Gooderham, has described 2020 as ‘the start of a new era for the dairy industry’ – which follows last year’s uncertainties over Brexit, tightening margins for liquid milk producers and growing pressure from vegan and environmental movements. Looking ahead, AHDB says it is already known that some farmers will lose their liquid milk contracts this year, but further changes can be expected as the industry adjusts to lower cream returns and changes in domestic consumption. Current wholesale markets are fairly stable and the milk market value indicator suggests there is no downward pressure from the markets on milk prices through to March. As to Brexit, we are on course to leave the EU on 31 January at the time of writing,

but uncertainty remains over what a future trade deal will look like. AHDB also predicts that extreme weather events will become more frequent and continue to impact production, while environmental concerns will increasingly drive consumers in their food choices. Kite Consulting recently published a white paper that cites environmental issues as the biggest challenge facing dairy producers, adding that new ways of farming, embracing technology and taking on workers with the right skills, or training existing workers, are key to achieving targets. The company says the industry can reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 30 per cent by 2030, through increasing milk yield per cow; better feed conversion efficiency, health and fertility; and improved use of nitrogen.


Housing and productivity

production. Space provision governs the feeding and lying behaviour of cattle, as well as stress; this is how space affects feed conversion efficiency and overall productive performance.” Cow flow is known to affect lameness, nutrition, fertility and farm efficiency, he adds, so it is important to make sure there are no dead ends, tight corners or congestion points and there should be extra width in feeding areas and around milking robots where congestion is likely to be high. Where space is limited and it is not possible to build a new shed, he recommends removing cows, removing cubicles or creating outdoor loafing and feeding areas. Ventilation and slurry are also key, with urine, manure and moisture continually entering the immediate environment of housed animals, increasing the risk of digital dermatitis, claw horn diseases and mastitis. Slatted floors and underground slurry storage are a good solution but come with a high initial capital outlay, Owen adds. Other options include slatted slurry channels running the length of passages. Kite Consulting also says improved nitrogen fertilisers, slurry and manure management will play an important role in hitting the 30 per cent reduction in GHG emissions. FG

As the sector faces growing financial and environmental challenges, making improvements to livestock buildings and cow management can bring significant financial, health and productivity benefits. Farm vet Owen Atkinson describes housing as the “fundamental plank” of dairy health and says the average sick cow requires the same amount of time and labour as 40 healthy cows. Farmers can achieve savings of as much as £468 per cow per year in Holstein herds upgraded to good facilities, factoring in improved milk yields and lower rates of mastitis, lameness and forced culling. “Getting the housing right for cattle is so important for both health and production,” Owen explains. “One of the key elements is sufficient space, whether that be feeding space, sufficient loafing areas, decent passage widths or adequate bedded areas. Space is not necessarily cheap to provide, but conversely it is very expensive when it is not sufficient because there will be more health problems, whether that be in greater levels of lameness, mastitis and metabolic diseases, or reduced fertility. “Over the lifetime of a building, providing sufficient space definitely pays dividends, not only in fewer health issues, but also higher

Health, productivity and livestock buildings

Creating good environmental conditions within livestock buildings can bring significant benefits in terms of health and productivity, according to ventilation company Huesker. Light, fresh air and rest, combined with stress-free conditions are essential for maximising performance and milk yields, while over-exposure to factors such as dust, ammonia, heat stress, humidity and poor lighting can all have a severe impact on livestock health and disease resistance. Active ventilation is key to preventing respiratory tract diseases, which are often caused by poor environmental conditions and remain a common cause of pulmonary illness, the company adds. Huesker’s Light and Air range of products promise to optimise the indoor environment of livestock buildings. It includes the Skytex light ridge for efficient daylighting and Ventitec high volume fans for energyefficient air circulation and cooling. Meanwhile, studies have shown that installing Vetsmarttubes can boost health and productivity, resulting in significant cuts to treatment costs. The company also developed the healthy calf barn,

which offers an optimised climate by combining natural and active ventilation, continuous air extraction and ample daylight. Its simplified structure also reduces construction expenses. Finally, Lubratec wind protection and side ventilation curtains feature ‘top opening’ and ‘bottom opening’ roll-up systems, and variants with a central roller are available for larger opening heights. All systems can be manual, electric or fitted with climate control and sensors. The company’s range of door and fronts includes very light fabric doors that do not compromise on stability and can provide a ventilating function. FG

Independent tag company launches A new agricultural tag manufacturer, Agri-Tag, has launched in the UK to meet demand for an independent supplier of patented ID tags for livestock, including cattle, sheep, pigs and goats. Managing director Nigel Myers, who is an experienced engineer in the manufacturing industry, says he is confident that the business will provide exactly what the market needs and more. “I worked in the industry when there were many independent tag businesses and then for one of the big two who pretty much now dominate the UK market,” he explains. “I have spent the past few years listening to the industry and looking at how we could create a solution that can compete in the current market. I am delighted to launch Agri-Tag – we have designed, developed and commissioned our own products to promote to UK and overseas distributors.” Many independent tag companies have now been replaced

by large conglomerates, says Agri-Tag. With more than 10 years of experience working in tag design, manufacturing and distribution, the company decided to design its own products and work with strategic partners. “Agri-Tag has no affiliation to any other organisation and we are looking to appeal to the British farmer who requires quality products at a very competitive price, particularly in the current changing economic climate,” Nigel adds. Nigel also operates Cabletrail, which provides asset management tags. Synergy between the two companies means Agri-Tag can help distributors set up their own laser marking facilities or provide the service for them. FG

Could a multi-cut silage system improve dairy herd performance? Rachael Porter investigates why many producers are switching to multiple cuts of silage rather than the typical two or three cuts per season. The multi-cut silage system has been adopted from Dutch dairy management. “The UK’s multi-cut system is the same as ours, where we cut silage when grass is at it’s optimum for making good forage,” says Dutch dairy nutritionist and forage specialist Bert Philipsen, from Wageningen Livestock Research (right). He defines multi-cut silage – or simply making silage at the optimum time – as regular cutting at, typically, four- or five-week intervals. “Cutting

the possibility of increasing the quality of their forage, which is still the ‘best value’ feed available during winter,” says Dr Homer. “The shift towards this system was particularly noticeable in the quality of early first cuts in 2019, because the average silage analysis results were a little skewed. “At the top end were the multi-cut producers, making a superior silage, and better than the quality from more traditional systems. So the average isn’t really reflecting what’s going on anymore.”

Producers are waking up to the possibility of increasing the quality of their forage, which is still the ‘best value’ feed available during winter.” - Liz Homer dates have to be flexible. It’s a skilled job. Silage must be made ‘at the optimum time’ and when the grass is ‘ready’. So flexibility is just as important as being disciplined.” Trouw GB's Dr Homer says that the weather is key to success too. “Multi-cut may not work in dryer regions and the system has to be adapted to suit each unit.” “Producers are waking up to

Optimum timing Cutting grass for silage more frequently is something that Lallemand Animal Nutrition’s Roy Eastlake (left) has been talking to producers – and contractors – about for several years. He says that multi-cut – or, as he prefers to call it, ‘opticut’ – silage making has really taken off during the past few years and he’s expecting another surge in uptake

this year. “They’re waking up to the fact that forage, as well as grazed grass, has a key role to play in the productivity and sustainability of their herds,” he says. “Silage quality is a key driver for success; not just quantity. This supports cow health and fertility and significantly reduces the reliance on bought-in feeds. “It’s essential though to adapt silage making systems to suit the particular unit. Some farms in northern England, for example, may struggle to take five cuts in one season. But the principles of taking cuts at the optimum time, after sampling, still apply. Two or three cuts made well will still offer the same results in terms of herd performance. Producers need to shift their focus towards quality if this is going to work for them.” Roy adds that planning needs to start now – well before spring and just prior to the start of the grass growing season. And that grass sampling and the results should dictate cutting date – not the contractor. Ideally, grass should be cut when it has a NDF level of 40. One producer who’s taken control and improved forage quality and herd performance, is Wiltshire-based Joe Carter. He runs a 300-cow dairy herd, near Chippenham, on an all-year-round calving system and he’s been making multi-cut silage for the past three years. Joe has been working closely with Roy Eastlake on dairy nutrition for the past seven years in a bid to increase milk from forage and improve herd health and fertility. The herd is currently averaging 11,000 litres at 4.10 per cent butterfat and 3.39 per cent protein. Back then, Joe was taking the ‘traditional’ three cuts of silage each season. “And quality was variable. There was plenty of room for improvement.” Joe changed his

Involving the contractor is vital to ensure that they understand what we’re trying to achieve.” - Joe Carter


cropping plan – all grassland now comprises three-year leys and the varieties and mixtures grown are selected to ensure that all the grass heads at the same time. Most notably, cutting now starts earlier in the season – typically at the beginning of April – and not before grass has been sampled to check that it’s at its optimum. “We then cut, roughly, every four or five weeks, depending on the weather and grassgrowing condition. And, again, grass is always sampled before we take a cut,” says Joe. Planning starts in January. “Roy and I sit down with the contractor and discuss the coming silage-making season and grass-ley management. Involving the contractor is vital to ensure that they understand what we’re trying to achieve.” Good quality silage is key to meeting the herd’s nutritional needs and milk production goals – and to justify the investment in more frequent cutting. “It does cost more, obviously. But that’s offset by the better quality forage, which means that we’re feeding less bought-in feeds. And there are also additional cow health and fertility benefits of feeding a better quality forage.” FG

Maize Farm manager Steve Klenk operating the 6-row Gaspardo MTE drill.

Farm’s own precision drill allows full control

Most maize-growing farms employ contractors to drill the crop. But when it was added into the rotation at Wistaston Farm, farm manager Steve Klenk wanted full control of the drilling operation.

Wistaston Farm is an in-hand farm of Garnstone Estate in Kings Pyon, Herefordshire. Here, farm manager Steve Klenk has been improving the soil health and structure on the arable farm with a strategy that encompasses min-tilling and direct drilling, winter cover-cropping and the spreading of animal manures. Five years ago, Garnstone Estate took a share in the set up and running of an AD plant which now supplies both

heat and electricity to a factory. The feedstock was to be maize silage. So, for the first time, maize was added into the cereal crop rotation at Wistaston Farm.

Rotation Most of the ground is a silty clay loam; the fields selected for growing maize are those with lighter soils. Maize will follow wheat in the rotation. But first, after the wheat

harvest, a cover crop mixture is established. This ‘forever green’ approach confers a number of benefits, Steve explains: “It helps prevent soil erosion and soil slumping, and the presence of a root system maintains a good soil structure. The cover crop will also mop up any leftover nutrients from the previous crop, and mine nutrients from the soil.” With an eye on keeping costs as low as possible, Steve buys in seed

as straights and then makes up the mixtures on-farm, and these are sown using a fertiliser spinner. The autumnsown cover crops may contain up to 12 plant species, and typically include oats, phacelia, peas, Crimson clover, clover and linseed. In early spring, the cover crops are spread with 2t/ha of chicken muck, followed by 20t/ha of a combination of cattle muck and liquid and solid digestates from the AD plant. The cover crops and manures are then disced into the soil. Steve explains: “Then we’ll run through the cover crop with a lowdisturbance subsoiler, followed by a HE-VA disc roller to create a seedbed into which the maize will be drilled. Because the ground has not been overly cultivated, there’s no slumping.” Typically, five varieties of maize are grown each year, sourced from several suppliers. Some are ‘bankers’ – that have been grown successfully before on the farm, and then every year some new ones are tried. All varieties need to be early or ultra-early

there were differences in yield between some fields.” In a normal autumn, once maize is harvested, shallow cultivation follows using the disc roller and then wheat is drilled into that. But last autumn, like on many farms, wet weather has meant most fields have had to be left unsown. Steve explains: “We only managed to drill 80 acres of winter wheat. We have some spring wheat to sow, and in any remaining fields, we’ll just put a cover crop in, or leave them fallow. FG

New maize seed treatment Maize breeder KWS has announced that the vast majority of its hybrid varieties for 2020 will be treated with a new joint bird repellent and fungicide product. It follows the withdrawal of key active ingredients from the marketplace.

KWS Exelon represents the first of a series of new generation hybrids.

KWS maize seed treated with Initio Bird Protect in warehouse.

The Initio Bird Protect new seed treatment has active ingredients which include prothioconazol + metalaxyl + ziram. To enhance its efficacy, it also contains zinc and manganese micronutrients for faster root development. Growing maize without a bird repellency seed treatment is “not an option,” according to John Burgess of KWS (pictured right). “High UK populations of birds like pheasants and rooks mean that there is a risk of significant crop losses from untreated seed or ineffective treatments,” says Mr Burgess. “In response to the withdrawal of both TMTD (thiram) and Mesurol (methiocarb), other maize breeders are offering a plethora of differing treatments and this has caused confusion. KWS recognises that the withdrawal of these actives means the industry has lost its go-to standards

and there is a responsibility to safeguard maize crop health. By offering Initio Bird Protect on virtually every KWS hybrid in our 2020 portfolio, we bring a total clarity of choice for growers. “This initiative will also help to protect the UK maize acreage, which may diminish if untreated or fungicideonly treated seed is drilled. However, with a backdrop of an ever-decreasing range of active ingredients, KWS researchers are also working towards a permanent solution to this issue,” he says. Growers planting Initio Bird Protect treated seed have the KWS commitment to crop safety, bird repellency and best-in-class hybrids for the maize season ahead, John adds.

Best maize varieties for 2020 Growers for both biogas and forage are looking for stability and maximum

yield potential and the new, highstarch (36.2 per cent) KWS Exelon (FAO 170) possesses these qualities in abundance, as well as one unique trait. Suitable across all soil types, it has the potential to carry 20 rings of grain; by comparison a typical older hybrid will contain 15–16. This trait will increase cob weight and therefore to offset the risk of lodging, KWS Exelon has been developed with a lower ear insertion height. “Maize varieties are bred in generations and KWS Exelon represents the first of a series of new-generation hybrids,” says John. “It has been the best performer in our in-house trials and is available for the coming season.” Another strong contender for 2020 planting is Keops (FAO 210/220). The variety is suitable for biogas or forage in warmer areas of the country and is ideal for spreading the drilling/ harvest window. It has a heavy yield potential of 50-55t/ha, while its high grain:stover ratio means it offers stable ripening in cooler seasons. “We are achieving rapid genetic progress in breeding plants that suit the UK climate and we advise growers to take advantage of this progress, by including some of the most recently-launched varieties as a percentage of the farm’s maize seed portfolio,” says John. FG

Single pass under-sowing Achievable in a single pass, the Mzuri Pro-Til Strip tillage drill is capable of drilling maize in 66cm rows, while seeding grass inbetween the rows at the same time. Advocating undersowing maize with grass to improve soil structure, Mzuri is interested in limiting erosion and nutrient leaching caused by heavy rainfall and improve harvest conditions. The Pro-Til can seed alternating rows of maize and grass and each crop can be drilled at its optimum seed rate and depth, so neither is compromised. Using a third unit to apply the grass seeds via alternating coulters, the main bulk tank on dualtank models can be used to supply maize seed to the remaining coulters, as well as fertiliser to the front leg where it’s placed below the seed. In

total, the Pro-Til dual tank models can handle up to four different products through its control unit. Users often choose to apply slug pellets at the same time, alleviating the need for an additional pass. Green ground cover between the rows and its additional root mass can help bind soil and reduce erosion and nutrient leaching, which remains a big problem in UK maize production. Additionally, having a base of grass beneath the crop can make travelling and harvesting in wet conditions easier and has the benefit of providing over-winter grazing too. Mzuri believes growing maize without an under sown crop will come under more scrutiny as soil health starts to take centre stage – and there may even be legislation. FG

Henry Brown’s Vintage Diary

Farmers Guide 25 Years Ago

9th February Warwickshire – Model Tractor, Plant and Construction Show at the Warwickshire Event Centre, Fosse Way, Leamington Spa CV31 1XN. www.modeltractorshow.co.uk

recalled that in 1985, due to poor sales, they were at risk of losing the Case IH franchise and were given one year to make themselves important again to Case. They did in no uncertain terms, with record sales of 360 tractors in next twelve months. In Farm Machinery News, Brian Bell noted that the latest rubber tracked Caterpillar Challenger 35 and 45 were available with five different track belt widths from 16–32in and the undercarriage was adjustable for row widths from 60–88in. Lely had entered the space age with the new Centronic Superbowl spreader which could be linked to the GPS system and vary application rates using yield maps produced at harvest time. Greenland introduced a new drill for use with power harrows suitable for any type of seed, from oilseed rape to beans. Prices in the February 1995 Yellow Pages included an offer of a four-year interest-free hire deal at £10,000 per year for a Case IH Axial Flow combine and a 1994 JCB, while a Fastrac 155-65 with 575 hours on the clock was advertised with a £42,000 price tag. A 1989 New Holland TF 42 17ft cut combine was for sale at £34,000 and Combine World offered a 1984 Claas Dominator with a 17ft cutter bar for £19,750. FG

The Trusty Steed Pedestrian-controlled Trusty garden tractors, now a common sight at many vintage ploughing matches, were made by Tractors (London) Ltd at Tottenham and later at Bentley Heath near Barnet. The first Trusty twowheelers were made in 1933, and by 1940 Tractors (London) were a major manufacturer of pedestrian-controlled garden tractors. Available implements included ploughs, cultivators, ridgers, hoes, mowers and trailers. Trusty tractors hit the headlines in 1948 when, in an attempt to increase food production, they were used to plough up the verge on both sides of the Barnet bypass. Some late 1940s and early 1950s Trusty tractors had a Villiers engine but most had a single cylinder side valve JAP engine, a centrifugal clutch and chain drive to both wheels. Lever-controlled dog clutches in both wheels were used for turning at the headland. A three forward and one reverse gearbox was added in 1951 but sales declined in favour of ride on tractors, especially the Ferguson TE 20. Trusty introduced the four wheel, ride-on Mk I Steed in 1948 – it was little more than a towing tractor with a twin cylinder JAP engine, centrifugal clutch and a one forward and reverse gearbox. The Mk II Steed replaced the earlier model in 1950. It had a front mounted Norton or JAP 14.5hp engine, multi-plate clutch, a three forward and one reverse gearbox and roller chain drive to the rear wheels. The specification included independent rear wheel brakes, power take-off and adjustable wheel widths from 28–44in for row crop work. Tractors (London) Ltd ceased trading in 1978 but it was not the end of the Steed as the Trusty Tractor Co. introduced a new 33.5hp 4wd Steed with a £12,900 price tag in 1955. Made in Czechoslovakia, the specification included hydraulic The Mk I Trusty Steed, so-called because “it linkage, hydrostatic steering, disc brakes and a safety cab. FG could be ridden like a horse”, cost £200 in 1948.


Plans to build a new power station in Norfolk, fuelled by chicken manure, was the main topic on the Farmers Guide editorial page in February 1995. Once operational in 1997, the new power station was expected to provide sufficient electricity for 35,000 homes. Special features in the February Farmers Guide included one on Grain Handling, Drying and Storage and another dealt with All Terrain Vehicles. Eighty companies at the Grain 95 exhibition at Stoneleigh included Bedfordshire-based Brice Baker, who exhibited their portable batch and continuous flow models. Five sizes of batch dryer offered outputs from 78–271t/day while nine models of Brice Baker continuous driers had outputs of 9–20t/hr. Opico displayed a range of portable batch driers including a model that could be powered by a 40hp tractor and Law Dennis introduced their Agriflow continuous drier with an oil or gas burner. The ATV feature included Honda, Polaris, Suzuki and Kawasaki machines as well as a range of allied equipment including a Polaris headland sprayer with an electric pump, hand lance and twonozzle spray boom priced at £249. Framlingham Tractors in Suffolk celebrated 25 years of selling Case International tractors in East Anglia. Sales manager Graham Goodwin

About People Young breeder wins ‘Oscar’ of the dairy world (l-r) Holstein UK president Bryan Thomas, Andrew Neilson, Semex national sales manager Michael Dennison.

New CEO for Organic Research Centre Nuffield Scholar Lucy MacLennan has been appointed as the new CEO of the Organic Research Centre (ORC). Since the departure of longstanding and well-respected CEO Nic Lampkin last year, Stuart Rogers stepped in as interim CEO and continued to develop the strategic direction of the organisation. Lucy brings over 25 years’ experience in the fresh produce sector, including senior leadership and management positions for global retailers and food producers such as Sainsbury’s, Marks & Spencer and Kettle Produce. Working as a senior consultant

in food quality, safety, and supply chain integrity and innovation, she is also a non-executive director and chair of the fresh produce board at Red Tractor Assurance. Lucy said she is “thrilled and excited” by the new role as the organisation’s work “offers real value to our society”. “I don’t think there’s ever been a time where emphasis on the development of sustainable agricultural practices and organic production methods has been more important,” she explains. “With public awareness of climate change and the environment at an all-time high, there’s enormous potential to further develop the work of the ORC and extend its potential reach and impact.”

Having helped a south-west premium-brand tractor and farm machinery dealership to expand and more than double its sales turnover, Martin Payne has joined manufacturer Argo Tractors to support dealers as they develop their businesses. In his new role as area sales manager for Landini and McCormick tractors across southern England, Martin will provide the technical information his dealers need to help their customers select the most appropriate tractor power and specifications for their farming and contracting businesses. He joins the Argo Tractors UK & Ireland team at a time when the Italian manufacturer has embarked on a programme of

dealer recruitment while rolling out a suite of digital dealer support tools. “During my 10 years working in retail sales at a very typical agricultural dealership, the business grew from one to three branches and the value of tractors and machinery sold increased more than two-fold,” he says. “Now, I’m enjoying the fresh challenges and opportunities that come with working for a major tractor manufacturer in support of their dealers across southern England.” Argo Tractors UK & Ireland managing director Adrian Winnett said: “We’re delighted to welcome Martin to help us support, motivate and enthuse our dealers, and help them supply the right tractor at a competitive price for the jobs customers want to do with their new machines.”

New addition to Corteva sales team Giles Field-Rayner has been made national agricultural account manager for Corteva Agriscience. He joins the company from Bayer Crop Science, where he gained experience in key account management and linking up with large farming companies and independent advisors. More recently, he managed the national technical sales team. He describes Corteva as a “dynamic, innovative company with a really exciting product pipeline”, which attracted him to join the company, alongside its “high energy and passionate team”. “With a large number of active

ingredients potentially being lost in the coming years, Corteva is in an excellent position to bring new chemistry to the market and deliver new innovations to help in many different areas,” he adds. Giles’s new role will see him co-ordinate Corteva’s links with the Association of Independent Crop Consultants (AICC), as well as being part of the company’s farmer engagement strategy. His priority in his new role, he says, will be to engage all parts of the industry, including distribution, farm businesses and the independent agronomy sector; to increase collaborations and work successfully with the company’s business partners during challenging times.

Addition to Claas Eastern Wilberfoss team Claas Eastern has expanded its Wilberfoss team with the appointment of Will Cartmell as field sales manager, covering the Wilberfoss West area. It is a new territory due to growth in the firm’s product portfolio and additions from Horsch, Samson and Lemken. During a degree in business management and marketing at Harper Adams University, Will undertook a Claas student placement in Sleaford, where he

worked in sales and marketing. After graduation he spent two years as a trainee field sales manager at the Ulceby Cross site in Lincolnshire, before qualifying as field sales manager. In late 2019, Will moved to East Yorkshire where he will now have full responsibility for sales in the Wilberfoss West area, covering all Claas franchises. As well as seeking out new clients, doing demonstrations, pricing and looking after existing clients, Will is also responsible for developing the new franchise, Horsch.


A permanent position has become available for a


on a family farming business growing wheat, barley, oilseed rape, sugar beet, onions and potatoes on the Suffolk/Essex border. Due to continued growth of the business we are seeking the right candidate to join our team.

We are looking for a conscientious and efficient operator whose main duties will be fertiliser spreading and potato harvesting. We farm on the north bank of the River Stour, our business is shaped by water and the use of irrigation, so an understanding of root crops or irrigation experience, as well as the ability to operate a Grimme potato harvester, would be beneficial. You would be expected to work long hours at peak times, be well motivated, organised and a team player.

Holstein UK has presented its prestigious 2019 President’s Medal Award to Andrew Neilson from the Scotland Holstein Young Breeders Club. The award is widely regarded as an ‘Oscar’ of the dairy world and it recognises and rewards young talent, highlighting the dairy farmers of the future. Presented at the Semex Conference in Glasgow, it acknowledges a member of Holstein & British Friesian (HYB)

who has made an outstanding contribution to the breed, Holstein Young Breeders and, in particular, their own club. Six young breeders were nominated by their clubs and selected for interview by a panel of judges, after submitting an essay on what breeders can do to reverse the trend of consumers choosing alternatives to cows’ milk. Andrew has won an engraved medal and a trip to the Royal Winter Fair in Toronto, sponsored by Semex. Holstein UK also congratulated the two runners up – Cari Thomas of the Cornwall Club and Frances Griffiths from the Yorkshire Club.

About People ARM’s Roger Smith retires

Roger Smith, a well-known figure within the pig industry, has retired after 40 years with ARM Buildings. He joined the Staffordshire company, then known as Alfred Lyons & Sons, in September 1980. Starting as a carpenter, he progressed to site foreman before becoming contracts manager, overseeing construction on-site.

New appointments signal further growth

Farmers appreciated his wealth of experience, which he put to good use when he became sales director in 2005. Known as a straight-talking person, nevertheless, the job had its humorous moments, such as when he sold chicken sheds to the Formula One world champion, Jody Scheckter, who asked for them to be fitted with wheels so that they could “be moved about”. Roger was also immensely proud of clinching a large order in Japan without speaking a word of Japanese, but using figures as the main argument. During his retirement he plans to spend more time on the golf links and travelling around the world.

Movers and shakers

Do you know of someone who is on the move in the agricultural industry? Whether they are starting a completely new role, a promotion within a business or perhaps a retirement after many years of dedicated service, let us know and we will do our best to include it on our popular ‘About People’ pages. 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.

(l-r) Neil Martin, Edward Tong and Teresa Morgan.

Vegetable handling equipment manufacturer, Tong Engineering, is building on a year of significant growth, with the announcement of two new directors and two new appointments within the sales and projects departments. Neil Martin has been appointed as operations director, while Teresa Morgan joins the board as finance director. Neil began his career at the company as a buyer, when it acquired Peal Engineering in 2005. Teresa joined the company as head of finance in 2015 and brings strong analytical

and commercial attributes to the ongoing growth of the company. Alongside the new directorships, Tong welcomes Gavin Barnes as project manager. Having worked at Tong for more than eight years, he broadened his engineering expertise outside of the vegetable industry and has now returned to Tong to strengthen its dedicated project management team in overseeing complex and large-scale projects. The company also boosted its sales team with the appointment of a new sales manager, Peter Stocks, who brings over eight years of experience in the vegetable handling industry. Peter will help to drive sales in both UK and export markets, working closely with new and existing Tong customers to realise their handling requirements from field to pack.
