Grain & Fertiliser Advice

In such a volatile grain market, you need to maintain a tight hold on your costs of production as worse than a day out with the taxman, but please – if you struggle, it may help if you think along the following lines: If I could name the price I want for my grain, what would the minimum price be? This may seem odd, but if you can honestly answer that question, you will find these volatile markets easier to follow. I respect it’s not always an easy calculation to do, but the more you understand your numbers, the easier the decision. I also urge you to please read your contracts; believe it or not, so many farmers contract grain every year without doing this. Again, it’s not always easy, but if you don’t understand, please ask. It’s important in a fast-moving market that you fully understand what you have sold and what happens if you can’t meet your contractual commitments. There are many marketing tools available for farmers and, in a volatile situation, you as individuals need to decide how much time you have to follow markets on a daily basis or if you take some of the risk away by committing grain to others to market.

The variables in grain production are so changeable, with such a finite level of control for the foreseeable future – but farming is about more than just what’s written down on paper.

nitrogen use efficiency to ensure we are applying product in the most cost-effective manner, says Openfield’s fertiliser manager, Lucy Hassall. Not enough nitrogen leads to potential yield losses, whilst over-applying increases the risk of leaching. Applying the most efficient source of nitrogen is also worth careful consideration, as losses to the atmosphere come at an economic as well as an environmental cost. We can successfully measure the nitrogen available in the soil to not only assess what will be required in addition, but also to utilise what is already available to help with costs. These tests, along with use of the RB209, will help support decision making when it comes to first nitrogen applications. Timely decision making for fertiliser purchasing is essential this year as the industry continues to face tight supplies and haulage challenges bringing concerns for product arriving onto farm in time for spring use. We will see extended lead times for fertiliser deliveries as this period approaches and it is therefore advisable to cover requirements as soon as you are able. FG

News in brief New fungicide molecule wins global Crop Science award An innovative new molecule which controls the key diseases found in UK and Irish cereal crops has been recognised on the world stage. Inatreq active, which is formulated in Corteva Agriscience’s cereal fungicide Univoq, won the Best New Crop Protection Product category at the Crop Science Awards. Earlier this year, Univoq was launched in the UK and

became the first new class of chemistry to control septoria and rusts in 15 years, while farmers in Ireland were enjoying their second year of being able to use the unique fungicide. Mike Ashworth, cereal fungicide product manager for Corteva, said: “The introduction of Inatreq to the UK and Ireland was a major milestone for cereal growers. Farmers need innovative new chemistry to

protect their crops and huge credit should go to Corteva’s incredible scientists who were able to make this breakthrough at a time when new molecules are desperately needed. “This development not only allows farmers to control the diseases which hit yields, but it plays a vital role in broadening the crop protection toolbox, helping protect other products which are being challenged by resistance.”

FSOOTY entries open until January Entries to the Farm Sprayer Operator of the Year (FSOOTY) awards will remain open until after the Lamma event in January, to enable more operators to enter over quieter months. Syngenta application specialist, Scott Cockburn, highlighted with this season’s extended autumn spraying window of good conditions many operators

have remained exceptionally busy. “Now, with most being well up to date, there’s a chance to take stock and the opportunity to enter FSOOTY.” Scott also urged farmers or contractors to put forward their operators for the awards and the chance to gain recognition for the essential role they fulfil. FSOOTY seeks to reward the country’s top sprayer operators – whilst also sharing the practical tips and best practice that can help all

operators enhance results and protect the environment. It’s open to all sprayer operators, with the initial stage involving just a few online questions. Sprayer operators can enter FSOOTY through the Syngenta website fsooty. Entries close on Friday 14th January 2022. The winner will be announced at Cereals Event 2022, with prizes to win including a trip to the 2023 Agritechnica event in Hanover, Germany.

Over half of winter wheat resistant to yellow rust at young-plant stage The UK Cereal Pathogen Virulence Survey (UKCPVS) has released its annual update on the varietal resistance of young winter wheat plants to yellow rust. Conducted on AHDB Recommended Lists (RL) varieties, including candidates, the latest screens found that over half of the varieties tested were resistant at the youngplant stage. Growers should use the information, alongside the RL (adult plant) disease resistance ratings, to adapt spray programmes in 2022,

particularly at the T0 timing. The screens use five pathogen isolates selected to best represent the diversity in the yellow rust population at the time of testing. A variety is classified as susceptible at the young-plant stage if it is sufficiently susceptible to any of the isolates. Relatively few yellow rust samples were received by the UKCPVS team in 2021 – around half the number recorded in 2020. The reduction is probably due to

this year’s cool, dry spring, which helped reduce wheat yellow rust pressure. Dr Charlotte Nellist, UKCPVS project lead at NIAB, said: “It is important to send in material, irrespective of the disease pressure. It helps us provide a regional snapshot of the pathogen population and serves as a basis for early warnings of population change.” For further information and sampling instructions, visit:

First view of new agricultural telehandlers at Lamma 2022 Lamma show visitors will be able to see Bobcat’s new generation R-Series agricultural telehandler range for the first time in the UK – the top-of-the-range TL43.80HF Agri 4 Star model and the compact TL30.60 telehandler.

News in brief NFU responds to beaver reintroduction consultation Responding to the government’s consultation into the reintroduction of beavers, NFU environment forum chairman Richard Bramley said: “The potential impacts that beavers can have on agricultural land are of concern to the NFU; undermining riverbanks, damaging trees, impeding farmland drainage and causing low-lying fields to flood. “In our consultation

response we have made it clear that any beaver reintroduction must be strictly licensed by Natural England and stressed the importance that an approved licence must include a long-term management plan, developed with local farmers and backed with adequate funding. Where there is a financial impact on a farm business, adequate compensation should also be made and an

exit strategy in place should major issues occur. “The government has made it clear that it will sanction reestablishment of beavers, so we will work with them, Natural England and all interested parties to ensure farmers are able to continue producing climate-friendly food, as well as care for the great British countryside and progress towards a net zero future.”

UK agricultural tractor registrations – November 2021 There are signs that the bottlenecks in global supply chains are increasingly affecting the farm equipment sector in the latest figures for registrations of agricultural tractors. In November, only 543 machines were registered, 16% fewer than in the same month last year and 14% below the average for the time of year. This is only the second time in the last 12 months that registrations have fallen below the level

of a year before and comes despite all reports suggesting demand remains very strong. Even with the recent slowdown, registrations for the year to date are still 16% up on the equivalent period of 2020 and, indeed, they are already 7% higher than the total for the whole of last year. Month: 543 units -16.5% change (compared with

November 2020). Year to date: 11,134 units +15.9% change (compared with January– November 2020).

£27 million for farmers to boost productivity Farmers will benefit from a £27 million pot to invest in productivity-boosting equipment as the Farming Investment Fund opened from 16th November. This could include solar powered electric fences, water treatment systems that use ultraviolet light rather than chemicals and cameras for monitoring livestock. The fund will be split across two strands. Firstly, the Farming Equipment and Technology Fund will focus on smaller grants

for equipment from a set list, including electronic seeders and chemicalfree disinfection systems. Secondly, the Farming Transformation Fund will cover more substantial technology, with the potential to transform business performance. This strand will focus initially on water management with grants available to improve water use on farms for things like crop irrigation and constructing on-farm reservoirs.

The deadline for the Farming Equipment and Technology Fund is 7th January 2022 at midday. Applications for the Farming Transformation Fund can be made online with a new online eligibility checker. Projects that score highly enough against the scheme objectives will be invited to make a full application. This will be open until 12th January 2022, with the deadline to complete full applications by 30th June 2022.

Farmers need the right skills and to be primed to manage industry changes Speaking at the Institute of Agricultural Management (IAgrM) National Farm Management Conference in November, AHDB chair Nicholas Saphir said that businesses who are prepared for and embrace change will be able to exploit the opportunities that always come with periods of evolution in the industry. “The industry needs to get on the front foot. There will be opportunities to grow new crops, to grow crops differently or to grow crops for new uses such as nutraceuticals. For livestock farmers, increases in quality and provenance and innovation will offer potential. However, only around a third of farmers appreciate the extent of change that is coming and are preparing for it. The challenge now is to increase this proportion and get businesses thinking their way to success.” David Fursdon, chairman of Dyson Farming and TIAH warned the 230 plus delegates that labour availability is and will remain a big issue. Closing the IAgrM conference, James Townsend, Chairman of Velcourt reassured the delegates: “Farming businesses in the future will require more management rather than less but management will have to have a broader range of skills and expertise than it does today.”

Arable maturing and stiff-strawed, limited data suggests it has very high yield potential in a late-sowing situation. RGT Rashid has high resistance to yellow rust (8), septoria (6.9) and fusarium ear blight (7), combined with resistance to OWBM. It is susceptible to mildew (4). In the East it achieved just over 102.1 of controls, around two points clear of key competitors. The grain exceeds the minimum standard for biscuit production, putting in a solid performance over three years of official trials. It is rated at 226 Hagberg and has a good specific weight of 76.4kg/hl.

Two new soft feed varieties

Record number of variety traits on the latest Recommended List Launched on 29th November, the AHDB RL 2022/23 for cereals and oilseeds features improvements to cereal lodging resistance ratings and additional information on resistance to septoria in winter wheat, as well as new traits for barley (including BYDV tolerance) and an improved choice of varieties for milling, brewing and distilling. Rachel Hicks reports. Paul Gosling (right), who manages the RL at AHDB, said: “Spread across the crops, dozens of new varieties are available. The improved choice includes many exciting new traits, which will help growers manage crops and target potential new markets.” In 2020, a new disease rating system for cereal rusts was introduced to provide greater differentiation in scores. Similarly, the RL 2022/23 is based on an improved calculation approach for lodging resistance. Mr Gosling said: “We revised the cereal lodging ratings to help pull apart varietal differences. This will make the ratings more representative of what is seen in the field and improve their consistency. Although ratings have fallen for some varieties, this is a consequence of calculation change, not an increased susceptibility to lodging.” Following high levels of Septoria tritici in the 2020/21 growing season and concerns about the breaking down of resistance, AHDB issued the RL 2022/23 winter wheat disease ratings early (September). This saw a rating fall for many varieties. Two ratings were issued: based on the standard three-year (2019–21) and a one-year (2021) data set. The latter ratings help to reveal last season’s

impact and varieties most likely to benefit from closer monitoring. New recommendations for winter wheat include varieties with an alternative genetic basis of resistance to septoria, which should make useful contributions to the control of this. The system for oilseed rape has also changed to make it easier to recommend conventional open-pollinated varieties. Mr Gosling commented: “Openpollinated varieties remain popular. However, there was a danger that they would be completely lost from the RL in favour of hybrid varieties. Changes to our selection procedures should help maintain the recommendation of strong conventional options.”

New Group 2 milling wheat varieties Recommended for the UK, KWS Palladium offers a high Hagberg (315) and has given good protein (13.1%), based on limited data and has given high treated yields across a range of rotational positions. It has high resistance to yellow rust (9), mildew (8) and septoria (7.4) resulting in a high untreated UK yield (90). Mayflower is recommended for

the UK and classified as a ukp bread wheat for export. It has high Hagberg (294) and specific weight (78.5kg/hl). It has no major weaknesses to disease, with a high resistance to yellow rust (9), mildew (8) and the highest rating for resistance to septoria for a breadmaking variety (8.4).

New UKFM Group 3 varieties KWS Guium is recommended for the UK and rated as ‘medium’ for distilling. It is the highest yielding Group 3 on the new list (102), with high Hagberg (255) and specific weight (78.1kg/ hl). It has shown high yield potential across a range of sowing dates and given high yields in a second-cereal position. Relatively late-maturing, it has high resistance to yellow rust (9) but is highly susceptible to brown rust (3). KWS Brium is recommended for the UK, rated as ‘medium’ for distilling. It has a high specific weight (77.3kg/hl) and Hagberg (268). It has performed well across a range of soil types, rotational positions, and sowing dates. KWS Brium has high resistance to yellow rust (9) and mildew (7). RGT Rashid is recommended for the East region only, and looks to be a secure choice for growers from Yorkshire through the Midlands to the south coast, offering high yields and good premiums. It is rated as ‘medium’ for distilling. Late-

RGT Bairstow is recommended for the UK and rated as ‘good’ for distilling. It is the highest yielding soft-milling feed variety (103) but a low specific weight (75.9kg/hl). RGT Bairstow has shown very high yield potential across a range of rotational positions and soil types, with limited data suggesting it also performs well in late-sowing situations. Parentage is Revelation/ Santiago//Cougar, producing an excellent all-round disease resistance package, borne out by an impressive resistance rating for septoria of 6.4 based on the AHDB three-year dataset. The variety has solid ratings of 7 and 6 for yellow rust and mildew respectively and is resistant to orange wheat blossom midge. RGT Stokes is a Cougar/Santiago// Revelation cross and has very similar yield potential to RGT Bairstow, achieving 102.4 over controls in the AHDB’s five-year dataset. Very high yielding in all regions, it saves its best for the west, where it racks up an exceptional treated yield of 105.2 with limited data suggesting it is also very high yielding in the North region (104). It has a low specific weight (75.3kg/hl) but good Hagberg (248). It has high resistance to yellow rust (7) and septoria (6.9). In analysis carried out by the Scottish Whisky Research Institute, the variety produced the overall highest alcohol yield in 2021 of RL candidates and control varieties.

Hard milling Group 4 wheats Champion is a hard-milling feed variety recommended for the UK. It is the highest yielding variety on the RL (106), but it has a low specific weight (74.8kg/hl). Champion has given the highest treated UK yields of all RL varieties on the 2022/23 list (106) and has shown very high yield potential across a range of rotational positions, soil types and sowing dates. “Whatever the soil type, whenever the continued over…

drilling date and whether it’s grown with full agronomic support or with minimal inputs, DSV Champion has delivered consistently over its five years of trials,” commented DSV’s Sarah Hawthorne. It has moderate resistance to lodging but responds well to plant growth regulators. KWS Dawsum is recommended for the UK. It is very high-yielding (104) with high Hagberg (304) and specific weight (79.4kg/hl). KWS Dawsum has shown no major weaknesses to disease and has high resistance to mildew (8), yellow rust (9) brown rust (7) with a septoria rating of 6.3. LG Typhoon is recommended for the UK. It has given high treated yields across the UK (102) with a high resistance to mildew (7), yellow rust (9) and septoria (7.2), combined with resistance to OWBM.

New spring wheat varieties KWS Ladum is a Group 1 variety. It is high yielding (102) with good specific weight (78.0kg/hl) Hagberg (324) and grain protein (13.2). KWS Ladum has given yields that are a significant step up in its UKFM Group 1 segment. Limited data suggests KWS Ladum has no major disease weaknesses, with high resistance to mildew (8), brown rust (7) and septoria (7). Nissaba is a UKFM Group 1 with good Hagberg (297) and grain protein (13.5%). Limited data suggests Nissaba has high resistance to brown rust (9) combined with resistance to OWBM.

Group 4 feed variety KWS Fixum has given the highest

yields on the 2022 Recommended List (108) performing consistently in all three years it has been under test. It has given good specific weight (77.8kg/hl). A later-maturing variety, it has not shown major disease weaknesses.

New spring barley Jensen is a very high-yielding variety recommended for the UK, with potential for brewing. It tends to give a low specific weight but very high treated yields, particularly in the East (106) and West (106) regions (based on limited data). Spinner is a high-yielding variety recommended for the UK, with potential for brewing. Spinner has given a high treated yield in the East region (103%) and limited data suggests it has a very high yield potential in the West (106%). CB Score (Described for the UK) is a Null-Lox 4G variety, lacking the genes for production of lipoxgenase and dimethyl sulphate, both of which can affect beer quality. It is a relatively stiff-strawed variety with high resistance to brackling. Malvern is a high-yielding feed variety recommended for the West region. It is a stiff-strawed variety with high resistance to brackling. Malvern has given high yields in untreated UK trials (95) and has very high resistance to mildew (9), but limited data suggests it is very susceptible to rhynchosporium.

Winter barley comments Lightning is a high-yielding, two-row feed variety recommended for the UK, with high yields in untreated

UK trials (88) and high resistance to mildew (7) and brown rust (8). This variety has moderate straw strength. LG Dazzle is a high-yielding, short-strawed two-row feed variety recommended for the UK with high untreated yields (87). It has a very high yield potential on heavier soils. SY Canyon is a very high-yielding six-row hybrid variety recommended for the UK. It has a very high specific weight (71.2 kg/hl), the highest for a six-row variety on the 2022/23 Recommended List. It is a relatively tall variety with moderate straw strength, which needs careful management. KWS Feeris is a six-row (nonhybrid) feed variety, with a specific recommendation for the UK for its tolerance to BYDV. It has a high yield potential in the West region of 105 (based on limited data). KWS Feeris is susceptible to mildew, but has good grain quality.

Spring oats comments Merlin is a very high-yielding (105) husked variety recommended for the UK. An early-maturing variety, it has high resistance to mildew (8) and has given high yields in untreated UK trials (99), although limited data suggest it is susceptible to crown rust. According to Gemma Clarke at Cope Seeds & Grain, Merlin is a standout oat for UK farmers and millers. “Merlin spring oat is suited to all regions in the UK and because of its early maturity, it will do well in wetter climates and the north of the country, where maturity is vital. It delivers consistency and quality to

millers, due to its high specific weight and high kernel content and it has the lowest screening losses of any oat variety on the RL. “Merlin is one of the highest yielding oat varieties on the RL and performs exceptionally well when grown organically or conventionally with good standing ability,” adds Ms Clarke. Lion is a husked variety recommended for the UK. Its yield in treated trials is only 99 but it has a very high kernel content (76.2). It is an early-maturing variety although susceptible to mildew. George Goodwin, combinable crop manager at Elsoms Seeds, acknowledges the importance of this new variety. “Lion offers UK growers the best combination of yield and quality while providing secure end-market options,” says Mr Goodwin. “With an impressive combination of kernel content, specific weight and hullability, Lion is showing itself as the leader of the pack.” Lennon is a described huskless (naked) oat variety recommended for the UK. It is a short variety with a good untreated yield for naked oats (64).

Winter oilseed rape PT303 has given a very high gross output in the East/West (108) and the North region (104). It is a relatively tall variety but has high resistance to lodging with good stem stiffness at maturity. PT303 has high resistance to both light leaf spot and stem canker and is resistant to turnip yellows virus (TuYV). Corteva’s seeds and inoculants manager Andy Stainthorpe said: “The launch of the Recommended List for 2022 has confirmed what we’ve been seeing in UK trials for the past three years – PT303’s yields are market-leading and it has clearly demonstrated it has the resilience required for the UK’s challenging conditions. “In addition to its yield return, PT303 provides growers with a new unique type of protection against the costly consequences of delayed or missed flowering fungicide applications. “Sclerotinia is capable of reducing yields by as much as 60% and this can occur right at the very last hurdle for growers, just before harvest. PT303 gives growers a unique and more complete agronomic package. “All AHDB trials are carefully treated to minimise sclerotinia infection, however, Corteva’s trials show that when sclerotinia infection levels are 25% or above, the severity of the disease in PT303 is reduced by up to 75%.” continued over…

Flemming is recommended for the East/West region, where it has given a high treated gross output (104). It has high resistance to lodging and is very stiff-stemmed at maturity. Flemming has high resistance to both light leaf spot (7) and stem canker (8) and, like Tennyson, the canker resistance is based on different genetics to most varieties on the RL. Flemming is resistant to TuYV.

Conventional OSR varieties Annika is recommended for the UK with a high treated gross output for the East/West region (103) and a treated gross output of 102 for the North, though based on limited data. It has high resistance to lodging, with good stem stiffness. Annika has high resistance to light leaf spot (7) and stem canker (6) and is resistant to TuYV. Amarone is recommended for the North region only, with a high

treated gross output (105) and is the equal highest-yielding variety in the North. It has high resistance to lodging, with good stem stiffness at maturity. Amarone has high resistance to light leaf spot (7) and is resistant to TuYV.


New Clearfield varieties These feature much improved gross output yield over current Clearfield varieties. LG Constructor CL for the UK has a treated gross output in the East/ West of 97 and high resistance to lodging, with good stem stiffness. It is a relatively early-maturing variety, with resistance to pod shatter. It has high resistance to light leaf spot (6) and stem canker (6) and is resistant to TuYV. DSV Matrix CL for the UK, has a treated gross output in the East/ West of 100 and in the North of 96.

Three new varieties join the PGRO’s Descriptive List At CropTec in late November, the Processors and Growers Research Organisation (PGRO) announced Rivoli, Carrington and Pantani have joined its 2022 Descriptive List (DL) for pulse crops, and provided updates on the latest trial results. Rachel Hicks was there. The move from a Recommended List to a Descriptive List last year means information on yield and resistance to prominent diseases is presented in line with modern grower requirements. PGRO principal technical officer Stephen Belcher (pictured), who was presenting the 2022 updates, said: “Farming is often at the sharp end of unpredictable weather events so having varieties that can provide growers with agronomic performance and still serve the market requirements will gradually come to the fore and be grown in sufficient quantities to serve those markets. “Since changing to a Descriptive List model in 2020, we are in a transitional phase. However, there were no changes to the sites this year and we are still using a five-year data set, with no changes to the rigour or quality of data. The changes we have made mean that varieties can be viewed in terms of consistency of performance, helping growers to make informed decisions when it comes to making decisions on seed for the next season. “Varietal resistance to downy mildew can vary depending on the races present in the soil but several varieties on the Descriptive List this year are showing very good resistance to the disease. Powdery mildew, which was a significant problem in 2020, was much less so in 2021. “Spring beans had a good year, with all but one trial taken through to harvest. As with peas, the difference in maturity between early and later maturing varieties was more pronounced in 2021.” Combinable pea Carrington, bred by LS Plant Breeding, joins the list as the highest yielding

variety in 2022 after returning a yield of 117% over control, and Senova’s new yellow pea, Rivoli, has scored 8 for resistance to downy mildew, making it the best downy mildew rating in this group. Winter bean Pantani from LS Plant Breeding is an early, shortstrawed variety with similar yields (93) to control variety Honey (95). Winter bean Vespa, from Senova, continues to perform well in trials with top yields of 108 and is closely followed by Vincent, from Senova, at 106. In spring beans, Lynx, from LS Plant Breeding, is now ahead of its competitors with a yield of 106 after being second place on the 2021 List, with Ghengis and Stella following at 105.

Combining peas Carrington, as well as being the top yielding variety at 117, has a very good rating for downy mildew (8). Kameleon from Senova (115) and Orchestra (111) move to year five status and maintain a very high yield potential. New to the list for 2022 is Rivoli (Senova) which, although lower yielding, has the best downy mildew rating in this group. Bred in France, Rivoli joins the latest list with the highest resistance rating to this important disease in the yellow pea category, just as the other control options for downy mildew have reduced. “Genetic resistance is now the main line of defence against downy mildew, as there are no effective foliar fungicides,” said Tom Yewbrey of Senova. “Used alongside rotational measures and cultural control, variety choice can make a difference.” With a yield of 103 and medium maturity, Rivoli joins an established line-up of yellow peas

from Senova, including Kameleon and Karpate. Slightly taller than its stablemates at 84cm, Rivoli has very good standing ability with a score of 7 and a protein content of 22%. Having spent just three years in trials, its yield figure might increase substantially when it has completed another year, notes Mr Yewbury. Bluetime, Mikka, Greenway, Kactus, Blueman and LG Aviator have also scored 8 for downy mildew resistance and both Blueman and LG Aviator also have high resistance to powdery mildew. Mantara and Rose returned to trials in 2021, with both showing very good resistance to downy mildew (8). Akooma (96) maintained a yield advantage of 11 over Sakura and has a very large seed size. Octavia and Banshee also continued into year five of trials.

Winter beans The top-yielding variety Vespa is closely followed by Vincent at 106. Pantani from LSPB, an early, short-strawed variety with similar yields (93) to Honey (95), is new to the list for 2022. Variety choice remains similar, with Vincent and Norton being added to the 2021 list previously. “Vespa has been our main variety in the market this year but Vincent and Norton are looking promising and we should have seed supplies of Vincent for 2022 plantings,” says Mr Yewbrey of Senova.

Spring beans There were no new additions to the Descriptive List for 2022 but Lynx returns to the top of the yield rankings, scoring 106. Lynx is closely followed by Ghengis and Stella, scoring 105, and Capri and Macho, scoring 103. Low vicine/convicine types Bolivia and Allison were subsequently added to the 2021 DL and continue to year four with yields a little below those of Victus. Yukon (8) and Maris Bead (8) show very good resistance to downy mildew and Lynx (7) is just one point lower. Yukon continues to show early maturity, and, in some trials, LG Viper was particularly late to mature. “Yield performance – that is, yield and consistency – is the most important factor for spring beans and is a major focus in the Limagrain breeding programme and this can be seen in our spring bean additions to the DL this year,” notes Will Pillinger, pulse breeder at Limagrain UK. “LG Raptor offers extremely high yield potential at 102 of control, and importantly has shown a consistency in these yields over the last few years, which is a really important and valuable attribute for a spring bean,” he says. “But high yields need to be backed up by solid agronomics and traits – and LG Raptor offers all of this – it is fairly early to mature, stands well and offers a good disease package including rust. “LG Raptor is suitable for human consumption, fish feed and animal protein markets so offers a range of marketing opportunities.” Tom Barker, pulses product manager for Limagrain, said: “LG Raptor’s consistent yields and disease resistance package mean it will be taking a big bite into the spring bean acreage – particularly in the north with its particular combination of traits.” FG

Arable LSPB’s Chris Guest (on the left) and Craig Padley with Akooma marrowfat pea, the highest yielding variety with the best downy mildew resistance.

Pulse yield improvements clear to see The 2022 PGRO Descriptive Lists (DL) continues to show the yield improvement of all pulse varieties, with LSPB (LS Plant Breeding Ltd) varieties at the forefront of developments. LSPB managing director Chris Guest comments that the company’s spring bean, Lynx, offers a yield that’s 11% over the old favourite Fuego, while LSPB’s marrowfat Akooma is 10% over another growers’ stalwart, Sakura, and combining pea Carrington yields almost 20% over a group of well-established varieties. Focusing on combining peas, LSPB’s

variety Orchestra is a very high yielding yellow pea (which were formerly referred to as white peas) with the highest thousand seed weight for a yellow pea combined with good standing power. Like all the company’s pea varieties on the PGRO list, Orchestra is resistant to pea wilt. Turning to green peas (formerly known as

blue peas), Carrington is newly added to the Descriptive List for 2022 and is the highest yielding pea variety on the entire list. This is combined with a high downy mildew resistance and good standing power. Carrington will be available for spring 2023 sowing. It joins market-leading Bluetime and Stroma on the DL. Bluetime is a very high yielding green pea, which also offers a high downy mildew resistance and good standing power. Stablemate Stroma is also a very high yielding green pea with high thousand seed weight and good standing power. Greenwich and Blueman are green peas that offer benefits in terms of key characteristics. Greenwich has the highest thousand seed weight on the list – a trait valued for many end uses – as well as good standing power. Blueman combines equal highest downy mildew resistance with high resistance to powdery mildew and good standing power. For the marrowfat peas, LSPB’s Akooma is the highest yielding variety by a large margin with the best downy mildew resistance. Also, it has promising reports from end user testing. For the future, Mr Guest notes that the company has a range of promising candidates for the PGRO Descriptive List in the pipeline. As well as combining peas, there are new spring and winter beans already in official trials. FG

Micronutrient seed treatments for spring barley Many farmers will be planning to sow spring barley crops in 2022, partly due to the current high fertiliser prices. Good establishment is the key to getting good results from growing this crop. Spring barley sometimes struggles to get going, especially in a dry spring, and frequently has a poor rooting structure compared to autumn sown crops. The crop has only a short growing season and so any check in growth, especially in the March–April period, can have a big impact on yield. Some farmers will go for malting quality, where yield is usually lower in the interests of low grain nitrogen content and there is bolder grain. Whatever market the crop is intended for, getting the crop nutrition right will be important in producing a profitable crop. With spring barley, it is vital to get not

only the basic NPK right, but also to ensure that micronutrients are there to support rapid growth. There are several micronutrients that could limit growth, but trials have shown that the micronutrient that is most likely to be yield limiting is manganese. Manganese plays a vital role in photosynthesis and plants that run short of it have pale foliage and growth slows down. In sites with severe manganese deficiency, plants can die altogether. Manganese deficient crops are also more susceptible to disease – especially powdery mildew; manganese is only needed in

tiny amounts but plays a vital role. The availability of manganese from the soil is affected by pH, with less being available to crops on high pH soils. The situations where you are most likely to get a response to manganese as a fertiliser include high pH peaty soils, chalky soils and light sandy soils. As the crop only needs tiny amounts of manganese it is ideal to use it in the form of a seed treatment, as plants tend to take up manganese more efficiently through their root systems as opposed to the leaf. Manganese seed treatments are taken up by the crop right from the start of growth, and a seed treatment is more cost effective than spraying and can save a job in a difficult wet and windy spring. In situations of a slight–moderate deficiency a seed treatment may supply all the manganese the crop needs to establish well. In moderate–severe deficiency fields, a follow-up foliar spray may need to be applied to support growth. A crop that has received a manganese seed treatment is likely to make better use of a follow-up spray as the crop will be actively growing. Manganese seed treatments are compatible with a wide range of fungicide/insecticide/other nutritional products. A crop that shows deficiency symptoms has already suffered a loss of yield potential and can take several days, or even weeks, to recover. Seed treatments are available to remedy other nutrient deficiencies where a farmer has identified a need for one.

plant uptake and use the nutrients more efficiently.” Recent fertiliser shortages may even spark innovation, such as better application techniques, he believes. “We already know that uptake through the leaf is more efficient than in when fertiliser is placed in the soil, so there might be a move towards better methods of application to help maximise benefits.” He has also moved away from using insecticides, as well fungicidal seed dressings. “Looking at recent studies on fungicides, we need to question why we apply them if we want the plants to interact with soil fungi and optimise nutrition uptake. “When soils work better, we now know the mycorrhiza will make them even better.”

Soil care and crop health – more than just tillage Changing from a conventional to strip tillage in 2019 was something of a baptism of fire for fourth-generation East Yorkshire grower Jonathan Hodgson. Farm facts: Growing area: 280ha home farm plus contract combining Soil: Holderness clay, medium-bodied soil Crops grown: First wheats, oilseed rape, spring oats, vining peas, beans, spring malting barley, flaxseed, herbal leys Livestock: High welfare pork Diversification: Glamping, microbrewery, logs Based about 13 miles east of Hull and just three miles from the North Sea, the farm has fertile, mediumto-heavy clay soils. With a focus on arable crops, the farm grows wheat for biscuit flour, breadcrumbs, seed and bio fuels, vining peas for Birds Eye, malting barley for its own brewery, spring oats, spring beans and flaxseed. Mr Hodgson says: “We knew we could not continue in the same way as we had been, so we decided to make the move to strip till. “As a result, farming has now gone from being dreary to something exciting.” However, he reflects, he could not have chosen a worse year than 2019 to change, and he had no idea how the land would react. But he sold his conventional drill and cultivation equipment, and purchased a Mzuri drill and a stubble rake, determined to make a difference. Despite the wet autumn, Mr Hodgson managed to drill some winter wheat in 2019. “In the first year, some crops were good, others not so, and in general the spring crops did better than autumn-sown ones because they were able to hold on to moisture better in a dry spring,” he comments. Now into his third year of strip till, he reports that he can really see the difference in the soil and that crops have improved.

He emphasises the learning curve, in particular when to drill and when not to drill. “For example, we are now more patient in the spring, and adapt to the actual soil conditions rather than following the calendar,” Mr Hodgson shares. Over the past two years other factors such as weather patterns have also come in to play. “One of the challenges is that oilseed rape is a fickle crop. In 2020, because we had a late harvest, it was drilled late September. LG Aspire achieved a respectable 4.7t/ha and Nikita yielded 3.5t/ha. “Winter crops which have been drilled this autumn look the best we have seen for many years, but there is a lot of growing to do yet.” Mr Hodgson explains that the main aim of the change was to improve soil health, reduce the weed burden and try to reduce the need for inorganic fertilisers and pesticides. But all these things take time, he emphasises. In particular, there are still some issues with black-grass, which he is working to address. “As soils improve and drain better, theoretically, black-grass should become less of a problem – so it will be interesting to see how it progresses.” Looking back at how the problem

developed, he reflects that he relied on spring herbicides to keep on top of black-grass, but by leaving the resistant strains behind, the problem multiplied. “Nature finds a way round chemicals, so we have been trying to think outside the box.” Plans are to move to a mechanical weeder which slices the weed just below the surface. Timing will be key to success – as this will have to be done during a dry spell. Since working on improving the farm’s soil health, Mr Hodgson has been able to reduce nitrogen rates by 10% without affecting average yields. “Nutrition is not just about nitrogen, phosphate and potash, so we are now planning to send samples for sap analysis next spring to get a true picture of any deficiencies – or excesses – as a healthy plant is less liable to succumb to pests and pathogens.” The only problem is that at the moment, the nearest laboratory capable of doing these tests is in the Netherlands. Mr Hodgson is also carrying out Brix testing, which measures levels of sugar within the plant sap, which he learned about in Base-UK meetings. The Brix tests are useful because sugar levels in a plant reflect photosynthetic activity and gauge of the health of the plant; healthy crops typically have levels above 12 and the higher the sugar levels, the healthier the plant. “We now use amino acids and humic acids to kickstart growth by feeding the micro-bacteria in the soil at sowing time which then create synergies with the bacteria in the plant. This in turn helps the

Crops, companion crops and cover crops Mr Hodgson has been incorporating some new crops into the rotation; for example, this year he grew flax, which was planted in April and harvested in July. “We decided to try it because it has good interaction with the soil, and we were approached to grow it by a local processor.” As he grows vining peas as part of a Birds Eye initiative, he has been doing trials on catch crops to try and trap nutrients within a plant and not have them leach through the soil profile – plus there’s the added bonus of having a living root growing at the height of summer.

Arable This year, a catch crop was planted after vining peas, and he then direct drilled with winter wheat. Mr Hodgson has also been working on plant companion crops for the oilseed rape, including the likes of berseem clover, buckwheat and vetch. Using cover crops has been something of a learning curve, he reveals. He uses three- and four-way mixes, and when he has sheep to graze them, he goes up to a 10-way. Help is at hand in the shape of a consultant farmer who has lots of experience in such projects – having made his move over 15 years ago, he is well qualified to guide the transitional path. “The bigger the mix, the more diversity, which is better, but we still need to work out which are the best species for our soils as well as the cost of growing them,” says Mr Hodgson. “We have found the best time to plant cover crops is early- to midAugust, drilling them into the stubble of the previous crop. However, this can be difficult. For example, in 2021, August was not a good month weather-wise, so they did not put on as much biomass as we would have

liked, although roots were good. “However, if cover crops are sown in September, they can struggle to gain biomass so will not grow very well.” This year he was pleased with the spring beans which were planted after a cover crop of mustard, berseem clover, spring oats and tillage radish. One of the challenges is that cover crops can increase slug pressure, which is something Mr Hodgson is working on finding ways to address.

When it comes to choosing varieties to grow, the primary characteristic Mr Hodgson is looking for is stable resistance. “As we are close to the sea, we are often challenged by Septoria tritici and yellow rust, so resistance is key for us.” This year he drilled Group 4 wheat LG Astronomer into a catch crop with amino acids and humic acids down the coulter, and he reports it is looking good. “We have found this variety to be sufficiently robust for the area, and

we are trying out a small field of LG Typhoon to gauge how well it works in the different conditions.” Other varieties grown on the farm include Costello, KWS Extase and Theodore.

More than just soil cultivation Finding and learning from other people on similar journeys has also proved to be an important source of wisdom, as they share ideas

on how to improve, productivity, sustainability and profitability he adds. The farm has always had some sort of livestock, such as pigs and sheep, on the land, and Mr Hodgson is now looking to expand and purchase his own sheep. “Soil is a living, breathing medium, and we are not only learning how a good, healthy soil should look and feel, but also how it will help us grow healthy and profitable crops.” FG

The alternative spring crop Fairking Ltd and the associated farming partnership of H J Fairs and Son have been growing niche market crops since the 1970s. By far, the most successful of these has been borage – the seed oil of which is used in both pharmaceuticals and cosmetics. It is a specialist crop which requires swathing before harvest, but more than 70 growers spread across England appreciate the consistently high gross margins that borage provides. One of the reasons for the crop’s huge success is that the English climate produces the best quality oil in the world, making it very difficult for other countries

to compete. Dutch trader DeWitt Speciality Oils owns a specialist extraction plant on Humberside. The company offers safe back-toback grower contracts through Fairking, based in Essex, as their sole agent. With increasing demand, the future looks bright and prices for next year’s crop are now set at £3.20/kg, with possible additional

bonuses. Yields are normally around 400kg/ha, but in 2021 some were as high as 650kg/ha. Low fertiliser and chemical input requirements mean that the main growing costs are for seed and swathing. It is a springsown crop, which can be drilled as late as mid-May; this has the added benefit of helping to control

Borage is easier to grow and more reliable than oilseed rape.

Borage gives an excellent entry for wheat. The late drilling date and short growing season allow good control of black-grass.

Fertiliser for the future with indoor pig bed and breakfast White Rose Farms is the indoor pig farming division of food company Cranswick plc and is looking for farmers in Yorkshire, Lincolnshire, Leicestershire and Nottinghamshire to enter into long-term pig bed and breakfast contracts of between 5–15 years, as growth for its pork products continues to increase.

Pig slurry application can improve yields.

The company offers attractive returns on investment and also says that its farmers can benefit from further cost savings through the application of home-grown pig slurry to arable land, as opposed to using bought in fertiliser. White Rose Farms managing director Rick Buckle said: “Slurry provides a valuable source of nitrogen, phosphate and potash and is high in organic matter, so

can help to improve the structure and strength of the soil, improving yields, whilst aiding the move towards more sustainable farming practices. This is a great opportunity for arable farmers to spread the risk of their business, as this is an income which isn’t weather dependent and provides guaranteed monthly payments for the long term.” White Rose asks that the farmer

supplies a pig finisher building, water and electricity. The company delivers White Rose-owned pigs to the farm and supplies the feed and any other relevant sundries. No previous experience in pig production is necessary. To find out more about how White Rose Farms could provide a new income stream for your farm, get in touch. FG

soil erosion or reducing fertiliser inputs. “Once decided then you can look at your rotations, available cover crops and destruction method.”

Lowering costs

Phacelia and oil radish uncovered as soil saviours Growing phacelia or oil radish cover crops in vegetable rotations helps to build and stabilise soils – with a new trial revealing it could safeguard future productivity. The trial – funded by Agri-Tech Cornwall with land provided by Duchy College – found that phacelia and oil radish outperformed 24 other species and varieties of cover crop, including legumes and oats. Where a break from brassicas is required, phacelia proved to have the best results – whether sown in spring, summer, or autumn – for improving soil organic matter. In contrast, where a break from brassicas is not required, oil radish gave the greatest aboveground biomass, improving carbon and nitrogen sequestration.

What does this mean for growers? “With increased industry pressure on sustainable food production and more frequent extremes of weather, growers are seeking more ways to preserve their soils,” says Ian Boase, vegetable specialist at Elsoms Seeds, and manager of the independentlyassessed trial. “Soil organic matter (SOM) plays a crucial role in improving soil structure, health and capacity for carbon, nitrogen, and water storage. An incorporated residue from cover crop biomass is a very effective way of getting organic matter back into soils between cultivations.” In the trial, both phacelia and oil radish produced a lot of biomass, with tangible improvements in terms of nitrogen and carbon sequestration, nutrients in green material, and feed for the following crop. “At >61 days after March drilling, phacelia and oil radish produced 40t/ ha and 35t/ha respectively of aboveground biomass – each sequestering around 15t/ha of carbon and 500kg/ha

of nitrogen,” explains Mr Boase. He estimates that between one third and half (166–250kg/ha) of that nitrogen could be available to the next crop, but further trials are required to quantify this. “The fixation of plant available nitrogen from these crops is of particular interest,” he says. “Where growers may be inclined to look at legumes like clover for nitrogen fixation, the trial has identified a critical limitation; they simply can’t establish quickly enough within a minimum 12-week rotation break.” Another limitation is predation by pests. “Egyptian clover was the worst affected by predation, with 80% damage,” says Mr Boase. “Phacelia and oil radish were less affected, with recorded damage statistically irrelevant.”

cover crops, or ones that are killed over winter for ease of incorporation. Ultimately, the grower needs to know what they want to achieve with a cover crop, says Mr Boase. This may be increasing soil organic matter and nutrient capture, improving soil structure and crop yields, preventing

Keeping costs down is also important, which was reflected in the trial. “We didn’t apply any fertiliser, plant protection products, or weed control so it achieved what all growers will be aiming for; low cost.” However, the trial results are not the end of the work. The overarching purpose was to identify which species would be suitable for further data analysis and investigation into commercial viability, particularly for vegetable rotations in South-West England. “In this region land is rented on long term tenancies – we also want to look at whether the new environmental schemes on offer could be applicable,” says Mr Boase. “We can now explore further, like how much the top performing crops could raise SOM levels and what that means for soil structure and water holding capacity. We can also gain a deeper understanding of increases in follow-on crop yields – whether through greater nutrient release or reductions in crop pressures like weeds, pests and disease.” FG

Weed suppression The trial also considered ground cover and crop height; the former an indicator of weed suppression efficacy. Here, oil radish triumphed, reliably covering ground across all three sowing windows. The latter, influencing means of crop destruction and residue incorporation, proved a more complicated matter for growers, as oil radish exceeds 20cm in height. “Single pass systems are increasingly popular, used to reduce soil disturbance and to keep cover crop costs low,” he explains. “However, the equipment used in single pass systems is designed to go over cereal stubble, so cover crops with residues higher than 20cm are likely to tangle and be problematic.” As a consequence, growers in these systems will need to favour short

Trial protocol The trial assessed 26 cover crop species and varieties on objectives like biomass production (residue), carbon nitrogen ratio and sequestration, crop height, ground cover and pest damage. Each of these is valuable in determining production and commercial compatibility. The cover crops were drilled during the three main vegetable break periods; February–March; mid-August–mid-September; and October. Each had 12 weeks between drilling and destruction, emulating the shortest period possible between rotations. The trial was independently assessed by Reading University and Duchy College researcher Hannah Jones, with Ian Boase managing the project and assisting in the field. Each plot was drilled at a standard depth into a randomised plot design at a mid-range seed rate. Every variety was repeated three times, producing 78 plots per period, each measuring 10.57m2. At present there is no set date for publication of the full results, but data and experience gained in the initial trials and from further investigations will be used to help inform the market.

Maintain your yield with advanced foliar frost protection Engage Agro, a well-known innovator worldwide when it comes to fertilisers and crop enhancement products, will be launching an exciting new product in 2022 which it says is set to bring hope to farmers and growers across Europe – Mas Power Active Frost. As 2020 will testify, frost is still a significant factor in yield reduction and crop loss every year. The damage a frost can make to plant quality, even when protected by fleece, can make or break a crop and even extended cold

periods limit the potential of crops to reduce overall return due to increased cellular stress. In 2018, Engage Agro began looking at the mechanisms of frost damage in plants and if possible,

how to mitigate them. In 2020 the company saw successful invitro trials in ornamental species and leafy salads. In the challenging cold spring this year, field trials were undertaken to gather as much data as possible. With the exceptionally cold spring in 2021, the on-farm trials were incredibly challenging. However, results proved very positive and yielded significant increases in plant protection across a range of agricultural and horticultural crops. Most importantly the technology was able to offer protection from multiple frost events to -4ºC with just one application per week, the company claims. Active Frost is a powerful blend of boron, cold anti-stress compounds, selected plant L-amino acids and cryo-protectants. It’s suitable for use on brassicas, potatoes, legumes, fruits, vine crops, leafy salads, root crops and fruiting vegetables as well as ornamentals. Applied just 24–48 hours before a frost event, results of the invitro and farm trials of the advanced foliar technology have proven it to: • Coat plant tissues to disrupt the formation of ice crystals which induce internal thermic reduction, which normally leads to the formation of ice in cells

Support localised changes in intracellular fluid content which increases the time it takes to form ice in cells and reduces the risk of longterm tissue damage • Penetrate plant tissues to provide and stimulate the production of anti-stress compounds within cells and intracellular spaces. This dramatically reduces the production of stress response induced compounds during cold stress, aiding rapid tissue recovery and reducing long term damage. Engage Agro sales director Andrew Aspinall is very excited about the launch in the new year, commenting: “I have been a grower, agronomist and advisor for over 30 years and have tried many purported frost protection products. I can say with no hesitation that Active Frost has both impressed and surprised me in its ability to protect plant tissues against frost. Not only can it provide up to a week’s protection from just a single application, but unlike other products I have tried, it is affordable in use even for multiple applications. The Engage team softlaunched the product at CropTec in November to a great response and we look forward to speaking to farmers and growers in 2022 about the potential protection Active Frost can provide.” FG

Spot targeting weeds: Fact or science fiction?

test in North America, South America and Europe. The Smart Spraying solution offers real-time, automated green-on-brown and green-on-green weed identification and management, day and night. Combining Bosch’s high-tech camera sensor technology and software with Xarvio’s agronomic intelligence enables Smart Spraying in milliseconds to precisely detect weeds in crop rows and to spot apply herbicide only where needed, the JV claims. Its configuration supports a more efficient use of herbicide, with trials showing herbicide volume savings of 70% are achievable. Higher savings are also possible, with variability dependent on the prevailing field conditions and weed pressure of individual fields. Bosch BASF Smart Farming remains on-track to launch the Smart Spraying solution in limited numbers by the end of this year. In a similar vein, Exxact Robotics has developed an artificial intelligence solution to detect biological aggressors such as weeds, diseases, pests and also determine fertilisation needs. The high-precision on-board sensors used by the 3S Spot Spray Sensor technology allow instant data acquisition and real time analysis. Then, the information is sent to the sprayer product control system to deliver the right dose to the right place. This is a fully integrated technology in the spray booms of the equipment manufactured by the brands of the Exel Industries group, which can be used on weeds on bare ground as well as on field crops, day and night and up to a speed of 25km/h. The first booms equipped with the 3S Spot Spray Sensor technology will be on the market at the end of 2022 for herbicide use. FG

From artificially intelligent spray booms to autonomous robots, how soon are these technologies to be used on-farm? Right now, seems to be the answer.

Sustainable agriculture is the key to global food production and a key part of this is crop protection at plant level, says Agrifac – which already has an impressive product portfolio that includes DynamicDosePlus, offering targeted high accuracy application (25x25cm) from prescription maps, and AiCPlus – machine-mounted artificial intelligence driven optical spraying with pre-emergence ‘green-on-brown’ and post-emergence ‘green-ongreen’ capability. To further strengthen its position in precision application, Agrifac is expanding its offering with the addition of Weed-It on the Condor and Condor Endurance field sprayers. “Weed-It is a worldwide, commonly used spot spray system to control weeds in a very efficient way. The option to combine Weed-It with

our Agrifac field sprayers makes the entire crop protection on your farm even more efficient,” says Agrifac product manager, Rens Albers. Weed-It provides effective, reliable weed control by detecting living green organic material using fluorescence technology. This works by measuring the degree of reflection of plants in certain light wavelengths, with this technique making it possible to work both day and night with a guaranteed hit ratio. This highly effective method of spot spraying (usually applied outside the growing season) has been used since 1999 in countries such as Australia, the US and Canada. “The addition of Weed-It to the Agrifac portfolio is the first OEM offering on Self Propelled Sprayers within Australia,” comments Agrifac Australia managing director, Richard Sheppy. “We see this as another tool available to our customers as they strive to reduce chemical usage and drive sustainability in their businesses.” The first Agrifac sprayers equipped with this technology have now been delivered in Australia and Europe. Meanwhile, Bosch and BASF have teamed up to create the joint venture Bosch BASF Smart Farming (BBSF) GmbH, which is developing and testing its Smart Spraying solution, currently under

Learning the spring grassweed control lessons of 2021 As well as the legacy of a substantial seed return, last season left growers across the country with some valuable lessons on spring grassweed control, according to weed management specialist, Barrie Hunt of Gowan Crop Protection. “First and foremost, the cold, dry spring of 2021 underlined that if we don’t get on top of blackgrass in our autumn-sown crops before Christmas, there may be little – other than spraying them off – we can do to recover the situation,” Mr Hunt points out. “Over-spraying is proving less and less effective as resistance spreads, especially if a late spring means little active early weed growth. And bromes and Italian ryegrass can be every bit as troublesome here. “Last season also taught us that we may still have serious losses and seed carry-over from all three weeds even where our early season control is reasonable, if thin crops and slow spring growth give individual weeds enough space to thrive and tiller as well as we know they can. “At the same time, the ability of wild oats, in particular, to cause substantial damage from germination and emergence right through to May and June became crystal clear to everyone.” So, what can we do both to deal with high levels of weed seed return from last season and protect ourselves from problems getting even worse in another uncertain spring – be it wet or dry, early or late? The options for autumn-sown crops on ground

with significant grassweed problems that didn’t receive sufficiently robust pre-em programmes are clearly limited in most cases. But, Mr Hunt insists, the opportunities are much better in spring crops. Although the relatively low permitted spring pre-em application rate, limited longevity and generally poor tolerance of drying seedbeds of many residuals can be issues. What’s more, he suggests that getting things right from the start here could save a wild oat spray as well as bolstering overall black-grass, brome and ryegrass control. “It’s important to remember grassweeds can be hugely yield-sapping in spring cereals,” he stresses. “An average of one wild oat plant per square metre can, for instance, cut spring barley yields by well over 0.5t/ha, with early emerging ones having twice the impact of those coming into the crop later, mainly due to significant competition for nitrogen and phosphate. “Where you’re following cover crops, all the evidence shows it’s important to eliminate them around six weeks ahead of drilling to give the best spring cereal seedbed. And you would be well-advised to target any established grassweeds under the canopies of your covers with pre-

planting glyphosate just before sowing too. “Extensive trial work and experience over nearly 30 years also shows pre-em Avadex (triallate) is particularly valuable in spring cereals,” Mr Hunt continues. “Both the granular and liquid formulations can be used at their full blackgrass label rate to give a really powerful boost to flufenacet, prosulfocarb or pendimethalin programmes. They both have excellent residuality too, and a better ability to tolerate drying seedbeds than any of the other actives. “More than this, though, triallate is the only one of the main pre-em options with good activity against wild oats. And it’s highly effective here, Avadex Excel 15G alone giving an average control of 92% and Avadex Factor 85% in all UK trials. “In most cases, this and their extended residuality eliminates the need for any in-crop wild-oat spray. The fact that they act on the emerging seedlings also means there is no chance of any crop competition.” Both of the triallate formulations are approved for pre-planting and postplanting, pre-emergence application in spring barley for the greatest flexibility. Only the granules are, however, yet approved for spring wheat with a post-planting, preemergence recommendation. Both formulations also offer useful contributory control of a range of important spring broad-leaved weeds – including common field speedwell, red dead nettle, common poppy, common fumitory, mayweed and cleavers. Interestingly, Avadex Excel 15G and Factor also have EAMUs for use in spring linseed – as well as canary seed – and are the only non-ACCase black-grass and wild oat options available for the crop. This gives them a valuable role in what is becoming a favourite entry for direct drilled winter wheat in many rotations. “Unsurprisingly, interest in Avadex for spring as well as autumn use is growing every year as more and more growers and agronomists come to appreciate its value in their fight against a broad range of grassweeds,” comments Mr Hunt. “Both triallate formulations also have the advantage of few following crop restrictions,” he adds. “Obviously, neither oats nor grass crops should be sown up to a year after treatment, though. Nor should grasses be under-sown in treated crops.” FG

New projects support industry drive to net zero Following the launch of its net zero-orientated campaign, ‘Making Connections’, CHAP is continuing to highlight the importance of sustainable farming through the launch of two new projects. This includes a recently announced collaboration with London-based biotechnology company, Bactobio Ltd, to screen bacteria for use as bio-fungicides. Aimed specifically at controlling Zymoseptoria tritici, commonly known as wheat disease septoria, the project will use CHAP’s National Reference Collection of live fungi and bacteria isolates, providing

field samples of Z. tritici for use in Bactobio’s compound screening. Following this, glasshouse trials will then test the efficacy of the potential bio-fungicides, with a view to creating a new suite of products for arable farmers. Dr Mark Wilkinson, head of compound discovery at Bactobio, formerly Baccuico, said: “Bacteria have huge potential to solve

global issues; previously, we’ve used our Bacterial Community Cultivation platform (BACCU), to discover novel antibiotic solutions. “We’re now employing this technology within crop protection, as we believe it has a role to play in addressing key issues such as fungicide resistance and the growing need for new, non-synthetic control options.” Another project recently launched by CHAP is working alongside the fresh produce industry to develop a novel low-carbon production system for controlled environment agriculture. This multi-faceted project will harness the benefits of ‘natural light growing’ alongside bespoke biostimulant formulations, to help optimise the nutrition, flavour and sustainability credentials of fresh produce. The work is being conducted by a consortium consisting of CHAP, RIPE Building Services, the University of Warwick, Evoponic Ltd, Mudwalls Farm Ltd and Valefresco Ltd. Innovation network lead for CHAP, Dr Harry Langford, said: “Unlike glass, ethylene tetrafluoroethylene

(ETFE) film transmits full spectrum sunlight into the growing area. The benefits of this are starting to be explored at CHAP’s Natural Light Growing Centre – a structure clad in ETFE. “The RIPEHouse project plans to take this one step further, by combining natural light growing with the use of bespoke biostimulant products. This will enable UK growers to deliver high quality, lower carbon produce compared to that of traditional glasshouse systems. “Once completed, this could mean a real step-change for the way in which we grow fresh produce in the UK.” It’s thanks to the UKRI and Defra’s Farming Innovation Pathways (FIP) industrial research competition that both of these projects can take place.

The Aberdeenshire farms aiming to map out a more resilient future Two Aberdeenshire farms which are just 20 miles apart are proving how different approaches can still achieve the same result. Harriet Ross and Ben Lowe (pictured above) farm arable land and pigs across three sites around their principal farmstead of Newseat of Dumbreck, near Udny. Half an hour further north, near Mintlaw, Craig and Clare Grant have a mixed arable, laying hen and beef business. Although running very different enterprises, their shared goal is the same: Resilience. They want to take action now to help their businesses thrive long into the future. Both farms were chosen to be part of the Resilient & Ready Programme from Corteva Agriscience, which is delivered by sustainable food and farming charity LEAF. They are nearly two years into the three-year programme and hosted an event in October to share their progress so far.

Young farmers with big futures Ben Lowe always wanted to be a farmer and, in 2019, he got his wish. The day before his 30th birthday he and partner Harriet moved into Newseat of Dumbreck, having just signed a short limited duration tenancy (SLDT) on the 400-acre former dairy farm. Since that day the pair have not looked back, and the pace of change has been rapid. Harriet, who has an environmental degree and previously worked for Strutt & Parker, has this year succeeded the family farm nearby, which doubled the pair’s farmed acreage. Not content with that, they bought a 450-sow pig farm in August, which came with 200 acres of arable land, and secured an extension to their SLDT which now

runs for 10 years. Ben said: “We’re now cropping 975 acres growing winter barley, oilseed rape, wheat, spring barley and grass for an anaerobic digestor which helps us to keep grass in the rotation. “We want to close the loop by using the pigs to make the arable business more sustainable and use the arable to make the pigs more sustainable. It’s a big learning curve.” Working with LEAF and Corteva, the pair have access to training, consultants, measurement tools, new products and a network of advisers who are helping them identify what they have, and where they can go. They’re already making changes – some subtle, some bolder – in order to learn more about the farm they are only just beginning to work with. Harriet said: “We are quite a young business, so it’s great to have help from the start; people to advise us and give us new ideas rather than looking back with hindsight.”

Improving the soil As an agent with Agrovista, Ben is keen on improving soil and has been trialling new establishment methods which allow him to keep grass in the rotation. “A lot of arable farms have lost grass and it’s a big loss to the soil,” he said. “Giving the field a rest, applying digestate to build fertility and gaining soil structure are big benefits so we wanted to try and utilise that.” Instead of ploughing before drilling, Ben and Harriet have been trialling drilling winter wheat into grass using a Mzuri drill. The early results are promising. The first year saw a yield uplift of 0.5t/ha when compared to a nearby field which was ploughed and combi drilled.

They have drilled two further blocks using the Mzuri this autumn to see if the same result is generated. “This didn’t cost us more money,” said Harriet. “It’s given us a yield benefit and allowed us to bring grass into the rotation to help improve the soil. We’ve done worm counts and they are higher in the Mzuri-drilled field. We’re also doing carbon audits and tracking our use of nitrogen to see what impact it’s having – maybe we can reduce our reliance on that too. “The point is that these are small changes that we can do quite simply, and we can measure the results.” Biodiversity is also under the microscope at Newseat. Consultant Tamsin Morris from Walking the Talk has been working with Ben and Harriet to evaluate what species they have on the farm. Aberdeenshire is a renowned farming region and, as a result, much of it is farmed intensively. But Tamsin explains that changes which enhance biodiversity don’t always have to come at the cost of replacing productive land. She said: “It’s about looking at what’s on the farm – wildlife habitats and biodiversity – and looking at how you might want to change or develop that. “Looking out across Ben and

The grassy banks flanking the water are not common and were working to encourage the species, which is otherwise declining. “Having found the water voles, it was all about finding actions which can be taken to help protect their habitat,” Tamsin said. “We’re also looking at what we can do to help seed-eating birds such as corn buntings which are here but quite rare elsewhere. “The plan for any farm should be to look at what’s present, think about what you can do to strengthen it, and look at your long-term objectives. Is there anything you can do to strengthen the connections of the habitats across the farm?”

Home-grown protein to displace soya As with most livestock enterprises, any carbon footprint analysis which includes imported soya does not reflect favourably. Craig and Claire Grant are on a mission to change that.

Over the next five years they want to cut their reliance on soya in the diet they feed their 150,000 laying hens by 50%. That journey started this year, with the first ever harvest of winter beans at Kindrought Farm. They grew 10 acres of the crop to evaluate how well it grew, what challenges it presented, and how it could be incorporated in the hens’ feed. “We grew the beans right next to the main road so there was no hiding,” Craig said. “People were interested in what we were trying to do and it has started a lot of conversations with neighbouring farmers.” Despite some challenges getting crop senescence, the trial went well and the 10 acres produced an average of 2t/acre. The beans have been tested and provide 25% protein. It had one fungicide applied for chocolate spot, but had no nitrogen applied, and soil testing is underway to reveal how much has been fixed in the soil. Claire said: “The carbon footprint of the beans is 20% of soya’s footprint, so that’s a huge advantage. Our goal is to work with neighbouring farmers to help grow enough of the crop to provide us with our protein requirement. In five years, we want half of our protein to come from local beans rather than imported soya.”

Investing in eggs Craig returned to farming in 2008, after working as an engineer in the oil industry. He and Claire started farming in their own right in 2010, investing in egg production with a 72,000-bird laying hen business. They bought and rented additional land and farm about 400 acres with 150 high health status beef cattle, as well as taking on another poultry site in 2020 with an additional 76,000 laying birds. They have recently agreed to take on a further hen shed, increasing the capacity from their free-range and colony birds. They currently produce one million eggs a week. They are also looking at simple changes they can make on the farm, such as investing in different tyres for their trailers which have reduced fuel

consumption. Additionally, the pair are moving to a new system to deal with their hen manure. From this year, they will use the profit from the hen muck they sell to pay for any bought-in fertiliser, meaning no additional expenditure on artificial nitrogen – a big win in the current market. Giles Field-Rayner, business development manager for Corteva, said: “Resilient & Ready is all about sharing ideas, information and experiences with the whole farming industry. “As a seed and crop protection company, we need to know what role we can play in helping these farms. When we innovate, it must be in the right places, so it’s been great seeing how these farms are adapting for the future and what they need from businesses such as Corteva.” FG

Rural Advice

Rural opportunities and challenges for 2022

Farm consultancy expert Mark Russell, a partner at Carter Jonas, provides an update on key rural issues. 2022 drags us one step closer to BPS payments disappearing from our P&L statements, 2050 net zero targets and keeping 1.5 degrees alive by 2030. At the time of writing, we are also on the brink of the Omicron wave; I really hope it does not ruin Christmas, although I do know it has already crashed some ski trips! The coming year should bring us closer to: • The three tiers of ELMS really providing value for the public goods that we produce • Clarity over food imports and whether the cost implications of Brexit on imports really are going to lead to a revival in UK manufacturing/ production • Wrapping in Natural Capital value to land value – a discussion that is live and likely to have implications for anyone thinking of selling in the next 24 months. We are going to have to wait until 2023 to get the government’s take on Carbon Calculators and standardisation in this field but, in the meantime, Biodiversity Net Gain policies are sweeping across the planning policy landscape and environmental performance is going to become an underlying

prerequisite for access to grants, subsidies, and contracts (government and corporate). Even the law on energy performance for many of our diversification buildings is likely to be wound up over 2022/23. This continual requirement for upgrading is going to challenge rural buildings – both commercial and residential – in part because of their original design, but also with regards to their access to utilities – gas v oil, air source being an alternative if the electricity is also green, or else biomass-based systems could be the answer. Carbon offsetting and nutrient neutrality are going to become common parlance, along with Biodiversity Net Gain, for those with or close to centres of development. Some of the numbers here are scary, with initial calculations showing that up to three times the area of development might be required for the offsetting allowance. Many farmers would be keen to receive development sales for 20 acres but, if the requirement is for 20 acres of development plus 60 acres of offsetting land, are you actually willing to dedicate that area of land – 80 acres out of your current farming operation?

The detail in these discussions needs to be taken forward early on in the life time of the proposed development with nutrient balancing/ capturing schemes designed in. The location that it makes sense for that to take place will also need to be reviewed, and then whether this requires additional land from your farm or other land from further away can also be assessed. One of the problems with putting a scheme on land next door is that this may be exactly where your great grandchildren might see development if it is still grass/arable, rather than already given over to wetland habitat and trees. Not an easy discussion, but the sooner it is had with your development partner the better. And what about the land market – now really is a good time to sell; commodities have stayed up, development monies are still coming through and those with deep pockets still want land. The last 12 months have seen increases in land prices and it looks like the same pressures will be in play early in 2022. So, “why not wait?” I hear you ask. Well, looking at the history, 2021 has still been a lean year for farmland in the market; it may be that the move up in values will increase supply and perhaps some of the demand will then be taken out come 2023.

Helping you to bale with confidence According to PFC, only two baler manufacturers, New Holland and Case IH, offer a precision moisture sensor integrated into the baler’s controls. In answer to this, PFC has produced an integrated option for Massey Ferguson and Fendt and a standalone system for all other baler models and types. The twin star wheel system offers customers complete confidence the data provided is correct and can bale with confidence. Accuracy is claimed as market leading at +/-1% with no calibration required. Looking at precision sensors, microwave is also used by some operators. Yes, the accuracy is equal to the twin star wheel, but it requires calibration to crop type and density. This raises the question of what do you calibrate it against to be confident it is accurate? The twin star wheels function by pulsing a 10V current nine times per second between the two wheels. This measures through the entire profile of the bale picking up a reliable reading for stem and external data. The readings are averaged every three seconds, with a live one-second rolling

update on the screen. The system will provide a live reading and an average for the previous bale. There are different display options including integrated to the baler, Isobus, tablet and phone apps. The simplest moisture sensor is the 2 Series H2O sensor for all balers and functions via an app on Android or Apple devices. This provides live and average bale data and will operate a wet bale marker to highlight bales with excessive moisture. The 3 and 7 series Moisture Pro can be integrated to the baler or function directly via the tractor’s Isobus or via a tablet the baler’s electronics depending on baler specification. The 3 and 7 series are the base units for the precision applicator system. FG Hall 9 Stand 9.554

Long-lasting tyres available in the UK

Ascenso tyres fitted to a Massey Ferguson tractor for Chandlers Farm Equipment.

In spring 2021, BA Bush & Son became the exclusive distributor of Ascenso tyres in the UK, supplying the tyres through both its trade offering, BAB Distribution, as well as its 24 retail locations. Ascenso aims to provide farmers and farming contractors with long-lasting tyres that are specially designed for a range of farming applications and for a variety of conditions. “Through our new brand Ascenso, we are committed to offering a wide range of world-class

tyres that will help our customers unlock the true potential of their businesses,” commented Yogesh Kumar Mahansaria, managing director at Ascenso Tyres. The team at Ascenso have vast experience in the tyre business, benefitting from a total of three decades in the off-road tyre industry,

after building two of the world’s leading off-highway tyre brands in the past. Ascenso says its tyres are designed keeping everything in mind: vehicle types, terrain, weather conditions and customer needs. Ascenso explains it will deliver on this commitment through a stateof-the-art manufacturing facility, located in Panoli, Gujarat, India. With an investment of over US$100 million, this plant will have a production capacity of 70,000MT. ‘Never stop rising’ is its brand mantra, created to empower all its stakeholders, helping them to contribute towards a sustainable, inclusive, and compassionate society. As a responsible corporate organisation, Ascenso believes in giving back to the community that it operates in, through a series of social initiatives. BA Bush is now rolling the brand out to tyre dealers across the UK as part of its Ascenso Dealer Programme, with dealers already signed up in the East of England, North West and even the Shetland Islands. In addition, the company hopes to supply Ascenso tyres to the OE2 market in 2022 and is already in talks with several OE2

manufacturers. “The initial feedback from customers we have fitted tyres for has been very positive and the product quality and finish looks second to none. We are extremely excited to be working with Ascenso going forward, to develop the brand in the UK market,” said Tom Bush, director at BA Bush & Son Ltd. BA Bush will officially launch the Ascenso brand in the UK through its Ascenso stand at Lamma 2022.

Show launch for hedge trimmer control A new operating system for its flagship 8000 series hedge trimmers, providing a greater degree of control, ease of use and service monitoring, is being launched at Lamma 2022 by Suffolk manufacturer Shelbourne Reynolds. S-Touch combines joystick control for the immediate operating functions with a 6in touchscreen for altering settings and function responses, monitoring service requirements, and accessing a full operator’s manual. Like the armrest itself, the software for the new operating terminal is an in-house development. Two versions of S-Touch are available. The terminal screen, used for set-up, operation and service functions, is common to both, while the key difference is in the joystick. The standard S-Touch Compact features a compact fingertipoperated joystick, while the optional S-Touch Max incorporates a larger multifunction joystick for operators who prefer full hand-held control and greater functionality, with reduced need to operate functions via the touchscreen terminal. Both joysticks provide four proportional services, giving the

35-55 Lamma.indd 42

operator greater control of the main functions. The Compact joystick allows control of the primary lift and reach functions. Configurable via the operating screen, a rotating ring at the base can operate the slew, telescopic or variable forward reach (if fitted). On the side, a rocker switch controls head angle. More functions can be controlled with the Max joystick. The top roller switch controls head angle, the front roller controls the slew or variable forward reach (if fitted), and the top two buttons control the telescopic boom. Three additional ‘hot keys’ allow programming of three further controls normally operated via the touchscreen. FG Hall 12 Stand 12.200

Years of experience in drier systems Graintek was established in 2009 by Kenneth Addison and Phillip Crow. Prior to the formation of Graintek, both Kenneth and Phillip had a wealth of experience in the grain industry and along with their colleague John Fyfe, the three key members have over 100 years combined experience in the field. Initially offering grain dryers and handling equipment, this has evolved to include tray driers/stirrer driers, servicing and maintenance, installation, parts and much more.

The Company manufactures a wide range of grain driers from 200–400t/hour. Graintek believes that its product specification and quality is second to none. All its driers are built to an industrial specification and the company says its performance difference is notable, as its standard configuration equates to optional extras on equipment manufactured by its competitors.

Graintek installs as standard a Weishaupt 3 stage digital burner – which it refers to as “the Rolls-Royce of burners”. The company designed its own Modbus converter, where output power, fuel position, air position, flame signal, alarm and error codes can be controlled and monitored. Complete with a separate fuel usage and diagnostics page all tied into an alarm system, four sets of pneumatically-operated cooling doors can automatically adjust to ambient temperature conditions, so that the drier runs at its maximum efficiency. Sixteen temperature sensors monitor the drier, plus Graintek fits inverters to control the fans and intake system. The fans come complete with silencers. Driers are fully insulated and clad with profiled plastic-coated sheet steel with a choice of cladding colour, complete with a weather roof on the outside models. For health and safety, internal platforms and ladders are provided every 2m for cleaning

and maintenance. The company’s PLC and computer control screen ranges from 21–65in depending on the size of plant, enabling you to see and control the whole plant from one page. The touchscreen systems combine easy-to-follow graphics and data representation with fault monitoring, grain store temperature monitoring, 24/7 support, remote diagnostics, mobile phone control when out in the field and much more. Graintek says it was the first grain drier company to introduce the PLC system and touch screen. The company’s only optional extras are its built-in weighing system, advanced moisture controller and dust fans. Within the last 10 years, Graintek has sold and installed 85 dryers. The company also prides itself in giving a first-class back-up service: you can call 24/7 and, if it can’t be resolved over the phone or via remote access, a representative can be with you in person in 1–3 hours. Graintek says it is always striving to keep ahead of the field, with five Lamma and three Royal Highland Show awards for innovation – beating over 70 others for the top Lamma award in 2012.

technology ensures that the main frame of the machine remains level at all times, irrespective of the tractor angle in relation to the undulating ground. Subsequently, the requirement to make manual adjustments to account for the unevenness of the terrain is significantly reduced, making for a much easier, trouble-free operation. The high-end specification comes as standard with the AutoLevel Co-Pilot device, electronic proportional controls and a fully independent hydraulic system with oil cooler. The telescopic machine will be fitted with the popular flail head which offers operators a more conventional option over the manufacturer’s rotary head. Available in 1.5 and 1.2m widths, the flail head is fitted with heavy duty forged hammer flails to make light work of dense residue to achieve an efficient clean finish equally at home over hedge or verge.

Kubota’s M6-142 packs power, capability and maneuverability into the mid-range sector.

Tractor range goes from strength to strength Kubota’s tractor range continues to go from strength to strength, and the new M6002 series adds depth and capability in the mainstream 120–160hp sector. Bringing an additional three models to the line-up, the M6002 series sits below the flagship M7003 models, where standard and Premium specifications with powershift or KVT gearboxes provide sophistication from 130–170hp. M6002 models strike much more of a balance between yard and field work, increasing their appeal to farms requiring a capable all-rounder

in the mid-range sector. Power comes from the same long-stroke, 6.1-litre four-cylinder engine found in the M7003 models, but tuned to deliver 122, 132 and 142hp. All M6002 models get a 20hp transport boost, for road work. The tractor is underpinned by an eight-speed powershift gearbox with three robotised ranges, while a creeper option lifts ratios from 24x24

to 32x32. There’s sophistication from auto-shifting and speed matching, and a sensitivity dial to tweak gear change response. With a 40kph Eco transmission, maximum road speed is achieved at just 1,640rpm. Xpress Restart provides a brake-toneutral function that saves stepping on the clutch pedal, with operator comfort provided by the same cab frame found on the larger M7003 models. The cab includes a wide sunroof, assisting those who choose the MX-built Kubota loader option. A Cat III rear linkage boasts an

impressive 7t lift capacity, while an optional front linkage adds a 3.25t lift for front-mounted kit. Hydraulic performance is provided by a closedcentre, load-sensing hydraulic system with 115-litres/min, and Power Beyond capability. And if that wasn’t enough, all M6002 models feature Kubota’s Bi-Speed portal front axle, which increases the wheel speed beyond a steering axle of 35-degrees, to deliver a 4.5m turning radius using a 55-degree steering axle.

Sole UK distributor for slurry applicator brand Tramspread has become the sole UK distributor of Roelama slurry applicators. “Roelama manufactures high quality, easy to maintain trailing shoe applicators that can be used with an umbilical system or mounted to a tanker,” says Tramspread managing director, Terry Baker. The Sleepflex and Sleepflex Farmer models can be specified with trailing shoes or cutting discs, and have a vertical, three or five-part, hydraulic folding mechanism. The

swinging arm for the drag hose has been neatly designed to prevent the hose from running underneath by angling it away from the machine at all times. “The Sleepflex Farmer is a professional machine. It has adjustable wheels and 20cm row distance spacing to maximise precision nutrient application,” explains Mr Baker.

The Sleepflex is a 12m unit that is suitable for larger farms and contractors. It features an integrated lift, fully electrical hydraulic steering, and two turning points on the swinging arm which enables the operator to reverse without crossing the drag hose. “This helps to manoeuvre the wider width machine in tight spaces,” he adds. Both machines require less maintenance than some competitors due to the design needing fewer turning points which reduces

greasing. “There are also some optional extras such as section control and flow meters that will appeal to those looking for a precision led approach to nutrient application,” says Mr Baker. Tramspread now offers the Sleepflex Farmer in working widths of 6.4, 7.2, 8 and 8.8m, and the Sleepflex at a working width of 12m. The 12m model will be available to view on the Tramspread stand at Lamma in January. FG Hall 12 Stand 12.376

New low disturbance equipment being brought to Lamma For its return to Lamma, Weaving plans to demo some of the latest additions to its line-up, with a focus on farmland equipment that can help promote regenerative farming at an accessible price range. Weaving Machinery has had a busy couple of years, having extended its range of powerful machinery for farms that operate both low disturbance and conventional systems. “We’re glad to be back,” says

company director Simon Weaving (pictured). “It’s been a difficult 18 months and we’re all excited to be at Lamma in full force. What we’ve seen lately is a real push by farmers for

regeneration in their soils. Everybody’s going mad for low disturbance farming.” As Simon points out, regenerative farming might require investment, but does provide savings in the long run – and sometimes even sooner. “Our cultivators will certainly be centre-stage at Lamma,” he reckons. “Many farmers are making the switch. Some who would previously never have considered it are now going from maximum tillage to minimum tillage.” This is where a cultivator like Weaving Machinery’s LD TopSoiler comes in. When switching to minimum tillage, it’s important to lift the soil like a carpet and get air inside. Doing so lowers costs, as well as assisting in controlling black-grass and fostering organic matter, without inverting the soil and deepening weed growth. “Those who have already made the change are seeing the benefit,” says Simon. “For example, the price of cereals is going up and up which is a good thing. Farmers who have lowered their costs should be in a position to see a boost in farm profitability.” Alongside its ShortDisc and LD Top-Soiler cultivators, Weaving

will bring its powerful range of drills and flails to Lamma. This includes its new Sabre Drill – a versatile and beginner-friendly low disturbance machine for stubble, cover crops, wheat, OSR and more. “The Sabre Tine is just incredible,” says Simon. “We’ve seen it work the toughest conditions in late autumn and still bring a crop to the table. “The Sabre Tine and our other machines prove that low disturbance farming doesn’t have to be complicated,” continues Simon. “It’s all about getting the right bit of equipment. We look forward to seeing you at Lamma. Be sure to drop by to browse our machinery and ask any questions. We’re always happy to support British farmers in getting the results they deserve.” FG Hall 20 Stand 20.770

Preview Manufacturer launches new products as show season restarts After a long time away from shows due to the pandemic, Storth Machinery is back for Lamma 2022 and the rest of the show season. Founded in 1999, the company says it is a leading UK manufacturer of slurry equipment and reckons it offers a one-stop-shop. Its slogan is ‘ScrapeIT – PumpIT – SeparateIT – StoreIT – MixIT – ApplyIT’, with ‘IT’ being the liquid gold element from cow to field.

Storth reckons the experience and flexibility in its quality manufacturing processes enables it to meet the demands of today’s modern farmers and contractors, by providing quality products supported by great customer service – from initial advice outlining suitable options, through to installation, commissioning and after sales service care. As Lamma 2022 kicks off the show year, Storth says it looks forward to being back and having a catch-up with customers. “As we haven’t seen our customers for a long period of time, we thought they would like a couple of new products, which will make an appearance for the first time at Lamma 2022,” the company says. “A lot of thought and time has gone into designing these machines, with the Covid-19 lockdown giving us more time due to shows being cancelled. Our new products have been tested thoroughly to ensure that everything works smoothly ready for the end customer.” FG Hall 6 Stand 6.650

Connected solution is there for farmers in all weathers Connected ag-weather solution Sencrop helps farmers to better organise the work day, work plots with a precise and targeted approach and simplify crop monitoring. Connected rain gauges, anemometers and leaf wetness sensors provide more precise, efficient and eco-friendly agriculture, Sencrop reckons. Sencrop sensor stations are assembled by renowned Belgian and French partners and, before leaving the factory, a rigorous test set with precise specifications is carried out on each station. This ensures quality, including battery life, data transmission, rain counter, temperature sensor, GPS precision placement and a visual test for physical conformity. Sencrop also performs in-field tests in real-life conditions, where weather measurement is compared between stations using high accuracy instruments. The connected app is a handson, friendly agricultural weather application that displays in all your devices, providing real-time and

accurate information directly from your fields. It’s designed to easily show information about ongoing weather on the fields, a rain radar and very accurate short to midterm forecasts. This can all be shared with up to five collaborators, and an alarmsetting device based on weather information helps to prevent risks. On pro versions, a series of agronomic models pre-installed in the app go further in crop monitoring against diseases and help to follow up growing stages. Growers who choose to share their weather data also have access to weather data from neighbouring stations. FG Hall 10 Stand 10.612

King of quads to reign supreme at Lamma




Perfect for fruit growers.

Simplifies the timing of inputs.

The basis for agricultural weather!

Suzuki will have its market-leading KingQuad 500 and 750 models on display at Lamma 2022, which it says are the perfect machines for a wide variety of agricultural applications, from farming and land management to equestrian use and more. All Suzuki KingQuads benefit from a number of key features. The classic Suzuki T-shaped seat is extremely comfortable for all-day use and the ergonomic riding position means that these machines are easy to handle and steer. The front suspension, steering system, power steering system, rear stabiliser, and the chassis frame all combine to deliver excellent straight-line stability as well as surefooted handling when cornering and improved maneuverability. This also makes the machine easier to ride as shock levels are reduced and less rider effort is required when travelling over diverse terrain. The smooth automatic gearbox also delivers proven reliability as well as strong engine braking for confident downhill travel. The Suzuki KingQuads also have a range of features such as additional storage compartments and a handlebar-mounted headlight, which directly contribute to enhanced usability and practicality. In addition, the multifunction instrument panel is easier to view and also includes a service reminder icon. Then, once the ATV is with an authorised Suzuki dealer for its service, the work itself has been made easier through the re-design of some body parts that make some components such as the fuel filter, easier to access. Suzuki understands that ATVs are an important and valuable asset, which is why it provides a theft deterrent system as standard.

The Cesar Security System powered by Datatag is the official security initiative of both the Construction Equipment Association and the Agricultural Engineers Association and comes free on all new Suzuki utility ATVs. This Suzuki Datatag kit will give each ATV a unique ‘fingerprint’ with an identity that cannot be erased, however hard a criminal may try. This acts as a strong theft deterrent and a tool for recovery should the worst happen, as well as reducing insurance premiums. Safety is paramount, and Suzuki also offers free EASI training with all of its ATVs. As well as the product briefing and handover from the dealer, Suzuki also strongly recommends the free, five-hour certificate course with the European ATV Safety Institute (EASI). Covering pre-ride checks, riding in different conditions, and negotiating obstacles, it’ll help keep you, and your ATV, safe and productive longterm. These hard-working ATVs will be on display at Lamma alongside a team who will be on hand to answer any questions or to put you in touch with your local authorised Suzuki dealer for a test ride. Mark Beeley, head of Suzuki GB’s ATV Division said: “We are really looking forward to getting back to seeing people for real at Lamma in January. It is an important show for us and our dealers so we are delighted to be able to return.” FG Hall 18 Stand 18.744

Four more sizes available for premium tyre range Vredestein has added another four sizes to its premium Traxion Optimall VF range. The renowned benefits of the Traxion Optimall series in terms of self-cleaning properties, grip, comfort and a long tyre life are now also on offer in the following sizes: VF710/60R42 and VF650/65R42, aligned with the corresponding front sizes VF600/60R30 and VF540/65R30. The VF 710/60R42 is an ideal size for many arable farmers, as the tyre is wide and provides both a large footprint and good traction. The incorporation of Vredestein Traxion Optimall VF technologies means the tyre can be used at a very low tyre pressure to prevent soil compaction. The limited diameter of 1.95m makes the tyre suitable for most tractors from 160–250hp. The combination of a relatively low aspect ratio with Vredestein F+ technology ensures excellent stability, making the tyre ideal for use in hilly terrain and on slopes. The main tyre combination for

tractors from 160–250 hp is the 650/65R42 with the 540/65R30. Vredestein offers the Traxion Optimall VF in this size combination when a low inflation pressure is required. Together with an extra high load capacity, there are clear benefits for all kinds of jobs, from arable farming to transport activities and for large farmers and contractors working on grassland. Driving comfort and long tyre life, the Traxion Optimall VF has more rubber in the centre of the tread in the driving direction, providing continuous road contact and excellent driving comfort. The F+ technology also keeps the tyre stable at low pressure during transport activities at high speed. Traxion Optimall tyres last up to 30% longer than their premium competitors due to the large contact area on the road and well-chosen rubber compound. FG Hall 6 Stand 6.520

Preview Machinery Pneumatic seed drill range expanded

New low disturbance subsoiler showcased British manufacturer Mzuri will showcase its new Rehab low disturbance subsoiler at Lamma 2022 alongside its popular Pro-Til single pass drill range. Designed to complement direct drilling establishment, the Rehab is available in 3, 4 and 6m, with a generous leg spacing of 500mm and a stagger of 750mm for free movement of crop residue. Spring-loaded discs provide clean cutting action through residues and topsoil whilst pivoting to avoid stones. Mounted on individual disc arms, the leading discs self-adjust to follow the contours of the ground to ensure accurate engagement across the width of the machine. Following the disc, a 15mm hardened steel leg features a

replaceable tungsten carbidetipped point to pierce and lift the soil profile whilst creating minimal surface disturbance. Operators can determine the level of fracture through the profile by a choice of three wing widths including 55, 115 and 135mm. For protection, ‘Hammer-thru’ shear pins minimise downtime whilst ensuring maximum draft control and maintain the correct draft angle of the wing for more efficient working. Behind the legs, follows a substantial packer roller with V profile rings, strategically spaced to reconsolidate either side of the leg to create a weatherproof finish ready for drilling.

Pottinger, specialist for tillage and seed drill technology, has expanded its range of Aerosem FDD pneumatic seed drills. From November 2021, these field-proven seed drills with working widths of 4 and 5m will be joined by a 6m folding version with a front hopper. The newly developed front hopper makes it possible to convey an even higher flow rate of seed to the coulter rail. The front hopper is available with a capacity of either 1,700 or 2,400 litres and is now fitted with a full-length, airtight cover. When selecting the front hopper, there is a choice of standard single metering unit or the dual metering system. Single shoot metering makes it possible to place not only seed but also fertiliser, companion crop, micro-granules or another

type of seed in the seed slot in a single step. The compact, folding coulter rail with a short headstock puts the centre of gravity impressively close to the tractor. The distributor head is mounted on the coulter rail and features a patented system that ensures it is always kept in vertical position. The proven DualDisc double disc coulters are offset at 30cm and ensure precision seed placement. Seed distribution is controlled using the distributor head, which can be provided with individually controllable outlets (IDS) as an option. Using the fully-equipped version, the driver can easily adjust the tramline widths and tyre widths directly at the control terminal to set up a perfect tramline system. FG Hall 6 Stand 6.310

Moving from a two-row system to three rows Jonathan Quail, of Scott Oldroyd & Company, and his team grow on average 100 acres of main crop potatoes in the Fens. At the end of 2020, they decided to investigate the benefits of planting a three-row bed system. “We were looking to maximise the potential yield using the same amount of land and without significantly increasing our carbon footprint, which led us to the Dewulf Structural 30 planter, supplied by AgVantage,” explains Jonathan. “The Dewulf Planter gave us the option to swap easily between two and three rows if soil conditions didn’t allow (i.e. not enough soil in the bed). “During planting, we found the planter offered excellent depth

control and better control of seed spacing – especially when using different sized seed. “The rear hood controls the soil very well and creates a good soil profile without causing compaction. According to Jonathan, during the growing period, the three rows offered an even canopy. This allowed better pre-emergence herbicide control (no additional herbicide required than if planting two row) and moisture was held more efficiently in the row when

compared to a standard two-row system (especially important as they are unable to irrigate). When it came to harvesting, the top ridge of the soil in the rows had not been compacted, which Jonathan says led to less soil for the harvester to process and better separation of the soil from the potato. The harvester was able to work consistently at an even depth which led to easier lifting. Jonathan continues: “This has given a uniform size and shaped

potato with a substantially increased yield; with this in mind we believe the planter will have easily paid for itself within the first two years. “Overall, we are more than happy that we decided to take the plunge and move into a three-row bed system. The build quality of the planter is exceptional, as expected from a well-established manufacturer. We received great customer service from the knowledgeable team at AgVantage.” FG Hall 8 Stand 8.830

Preview Self-propelled spraying giants on display

With a fresh new logo and over 30 years’ experience in solving problems for farmers, Vantage ASC says it is proud to be back at Lamma ’22, with even more solutions for the on-going challenges of British agriculture. As the lead Trimble dealer for England and Wales, the company will be demonstrating the easyto-use GFX range of displays and accompanying receivers, perfect for any machine type or brand. Also addressing the increased security risk of technology, Vantage ASC has developed a way of tracking GPS receivers and is including this in its security packages alongside SmartWater forensic marking. National sales manager Mark Griffiths comments: “No longer are our GPS signals used only to steer machines; we can now locate GPS receivers using existing

technology, something we hope will significantly deter thieves and reduce the risk of theft from farm.” In addition to this, the company will show how older machines can benefit from retrofit technology including seed blockage and counting sensors, variable rate controllers, section controllers and Isobus modules. Vantage ASC’s sales and service teams will be on hand at the event to answer your questions and provide independent advice on how technology could benefit you and your business in the coming year. For those customers looking to get more from their existing implements or update them to be compatible with their latest tractor, the Vantage ASC stand will be one to visit this year.

to spray on plant level ensuring each individual plant receives the required dosage specific to its exact needs. This is thanks to Agrifac innovations such as AiCPlus (location-specific spraying thanks to camera technology) and DynamicDosePlus (individual dosage per nozzle). These innovations are available on the Condor V and Endurance II, which are available with tank sizes of 4,000-, 5,000- and 8,000-litre capacities and boom widths of up to 54m. Both Agrifac Condor V and Endurance II sprayers will be heading out on demonstration after Lamma ’22, as the NEED Farming Tour resumes during spring. FG Hall 11 Stand 11.260





Addressing the increased security risk of technology

Exhibited at Lamma 2022 by Agrifac UK will be both the Condor V and its big brother; the 8,000-litre Condor Endurance II. Ever since its introduction, the Condor range has been renowned for its stability, precision and innovation. The patented StabiloPlus chassis provides unparalleled stability in comparison to any other sprayer in the world, the company claims, with GreenFlowPlus ensuring continuous pressure using the specially designed pump so that there is no difference in spraying at any point during operation, and no residual liquid left in the tank. The comfortable cab features the EcoTronicPlus control system, which is easy to understand and operate. With options that give a wider track width (WideTrackPlus) and higher ground clearance (ClearancePlus), the tried and tested Condor concept can also be used in specific circumstances and the most diverse crops. In addition to various possible options and versions, both selfpropelled giants are ready

Bringing grassland into focus Agricultural grassland specialist, JC Machinery, will be bringing grassland into focus at Lamma 2022 with a range of machines from Vredo, Imants, Evers and Weed Control – all essential for high quality, reliable grassland rejuvenation. Vredo’s range of Agri Seeders have gained a reputation for their outstanding 96% germination rates. The Dutch-made unit keeps its well-known features for grassland overseeding (7.5cm), making it the only machine that can overseed on grass and arable land. Preparing the soil for seeding is a crucial aspect of successful grassland and harvests, and for that, the Imants range of spaders are perfect. Currently in use on farms and at plant breeding companies in a range of glasshouses and other outdoor areas, the Imants Spaders make soil rejuvenation more efficient. Using the Imants machines removes the need to handpick debris out of the soil after harvest and takes out the need for subsoiling. This is because the Spader reaches depths similar to a subsoiler whilst bringing fresh earth to the surface and incorporating it. The working depth also means it can operate in dry conditions and will break up dry slaps of soil. Even with a healthy

56-75 Lamma.indd 67

establishment of grass, compaction through grazing and heavy machinery use can lead to flooding and ultimately weak and poor grass growth. JC Machinery offers Evers grassland maintenance products to combat this, including the GPG range of spring tine harrows. These harrows activate the soil, break up and disperse lumps of soil and muck, and stimulate new grass growth. Also on the stand will be the Flame WeedControl Greenhouse weed burner. This environmentally conscious method of weed control prevents the ingress of undesirable vegetation, crop residues, teases, and moulds in large glasshouses or for burning crop rotations. The tractor-mounted unit is also ideal for thermal disinfection on concrete floors and the removal of large weed areas around outbuildings and car parks. These machines will be joined on stand by the JC Machinery team, who are all looking forward to returning to Lamma. FG Hall 9 Stand 9.280

First Lamma for compact tractor manufacturer Kioti compact tractors have been used on farms around the UK for many years.The smaller- to medium-sized compacts make great scraper and utility tractors while the larger RX 73 HP tractor units with power shuttle, 24 forward and 24 reverse gears offer a versatile, highly manoeuvrable tractor. For 2022, Kioti is expanding its range of higher horsepower models. Later in 2022, the new HX tractor models will be available. These tractors replace the existing PX models. The HX tractors are powered by the quiet and economical Kioti engines and range from 90–140hp. Kioti says it has been leading the way with the use of DPF filters for compact and larger tractors, therefore claims reliability and ease of use will not be an issue. Kioti HX tractors offer a lighter weight chassis compared to a lot of standard agricultural tractors, with no compromise on specification, power or performance. The transmission for the HX

models will split between power shuttle and power shift. All Kioti tractors are supported by a manufacturer’s five-year, 3,000 hours warranty, giving reassurance to all owners and end users. Also on display will be one of Kioti’s K9 2400 24.5hp 3-cylinder utility vehicles. The unit shown will be seen with a full cabin, with a fully opening windscreen, heater and full glass doors for great visibility. The urethane spray-coated, large load space rear deck is ideal to transport tools, supplies and, if fitted with a galvanised canopy, livestock.

High ground clearance plus room for three people to sit comfortably make this an ideal tool for your farm, the company reckons. Kioti UTVs are covered by a twoyear unlimited hour warranty. Next year will see the introduction of a new factory cabin for the K9. This unit will be homologated for 50kph. Visit the Kioti stand to see the products first-hand and meet the team.

Unveiling of new front loaders

Visitors to Lamma ‘22 will be the first in the UK to view the new generation of Stoll ProfiLine front loaders which are to be showcased by UK importer, Lynx Engineering. Behind the smart new look of this latest generation of ProfiLine loaders are a range of technical developments and innovative design features that further improve the ProfiLine’s capacity, all-round performance, operating safety and serviceability. Stoll has also extended the ProfiLine model choice in a range designed to ensure a perfect fit on tractors

between 50–300hp+. The new ProfiLine range incorporates the technology platform on which an increasing range of loader functions will be made available in the near future. These include the options of Work Area Restrictions, a system of sensors which, for example, can automatically restrict loader height when working

in barns with low overhead space. Payload Weighting will also be available, enabling operators to weigh the load on the job, ensuring material loading accuracy in real time for bucket work or when handling bales, silage, big bags and pallets. These new systems, together with Electronic Self-Levelling, will sit alongside established ProfiLine features such as the Drive-In System, Return to Dig, Comfort Drive, Hydro-Fix, AntiLowering Guard, rapid implement attachment using Euro-frame or Combi Headstocks and Stoll’s unique Re-scooping function which ensures the bucket is always full with no trickle losses. The new generation ProfiLine is now equipped with an even stronger double-acting lifting cylinder, which translates into more lifting power. In addition, Stoll’s renowned Z-Kinematics technology has been further improved. As with all ProfiLine models, rugged construction, durability and ease of operation and maintenance feature strongly across the new model range. For example, Stoll have eliminated the need to regularly replace hose lines by using wearfree steel hydraulic pipes instead

of rubber. Hydraulic lines are fully protected but can be freely accessed under the beam and, thanks to Stoll’s Hydro-Fix system, hydraulic lines can be quickly connected and disconnected – with one hand. Furthermore, all new generation ProfiLine Loaders are fitted with oversized large pin diameter and bushing, with lubrication point that can be easily accessed from outside. The complete line of Stoll’s next generation of ProfiLine loaders will be available to order from Lynx Engineering dealers across the UK and Ireland in the first quarter of 2022. Also new on the Lynx stand will be a new range of Zuidberg steel encased magnetite weight units with optional integrated toolbox, a new Stoll Solid 40-22MS front loader which extends the Solid range with more lift height to 4m and a lift capacity of 1,530kg at full height and is specifically designed for lighter tractors needing to lift more. New from Dromone on the Lynx stand will be the automatic Fendt ball hitch, which provides a fully automatic ball hitch operation without leaving the tractor seat, plus a new telehandler rear pick up hitch with increased vertical lift capacity to 3.0t from 2.5t.

Minimum effort, maximum returns PFC will be launching the new Sherp and Ozyrus combination cultivator at Lamma 2022. As with all the Awemak products offered by PFC, there is no compromise on build strength and quality, the company says. The 3m setup with high or low disturbance leg options on the Sherp are protected by sprung auto reset. The standard hydraulic 3-point linkage couples directly to the Ozyrus Discs with minimal downtime to separate and connect as required. Using hydraulic linkage allows ultimate precision adjustment to the depth control of both the Sherp disturbance legs and the 3m discs. The Ozyrus discs have two

rows of 12 discs with 560mm diameter, active side screens, deflector board between the row of discs, straw tines, hydraulic depth control, led lights and steel ring packer. There are various rear rollers and packers available with the option of doubling up for a twin roller or packer. The Sherp and Ozyrus combination is designed for efficiency as the operator can adjust on the go the working depth of the two components to suit ground conditions and soil types. Having the ability to separate the two components allows for more varied jobs to be carried out. Chitting grain after harvest being the main consideration and utilising the discs to work the top 1cm then reconnecting before drilling to work the ground preparing an ideal seed bed. On the PFC test farm, min till has been used successfully to replace the plough and dramatically reduce establishment cost and improve time management of continuous wheat. FG Hall 9 Stand 9.554

New tractors to make UK debut

Full product line displays from McCormick and Landini will be available at Lamma ’22, and the new McCormick X7 short wheelbase models will get their first UK showing. In the wake of multiple new dealer signings, AgriArgo UK, the UK and Ireland distribution affiliate of McCormick and Landini tractormaker Argo Tractors, is set to have a considerable presence at Lamma. Centre stage among the McCormick tractors will be the new X7 short wheelbase models, comprising four semi-powershift P6Drive transmission models and two VT-Drive CVT tractors. Four-cyl powerplants feature in the X7.417 P6-Drive (165hp max) and X7.418 P6-Drive (175hp),

while there are 6-cyl engines in the X7.617 and X7.618. The two VT-Drive CVT tractors are the 165hp/4-cyl X7.418 and the 175hp/6-cyl X7.618. With both transmission types, the specification includes a ‘Stop and Action’ clutch/brake system. All engines, which are sourced from FPT, meet Stage 5 emissions regulations. Turbocharged and intercooled, they feature a common rail electronic fuel injection system providing increased responsiveness, lower fuel consumption and reduced emissions. Utilising the

turbocharger’s throttle valve, engine braking allows the tractor to be slowed by operating the engine brake with the rear brakes. The bonnet on the new SWB X7 models is restyled in line with other McCormick tractors, and lifts to 90 degrees for full-service access. A 3,500kg-capacity front linkage has been redesigned to enhance visibility. Rear lift capacity is 9,300kg, and up to eight spool valves can be specified at the rear, with a choice of 123 or 160 litres/min closed-centre hydraulic systems. There is a choice of mechanical or semi-active electronically controlled cab suspension. Wheelbase is 2,651mm on 4-cyl models and 2,760mm on 6-cyl tractors. Other McCormick exhibits will include a representative of the flagship X8 VT-Drive series, the 310hp X8.310. There will also be tractors from the long wheelbase X7 series, the X7.624 VT-Drive and a model from the X7.6 P6-Drive semipowershift series. The Landini area will focus on smaller tractors suited to specialist and stock farms. Models will include representative machines from the



Mistral2 range of 49–57hp with Kohler Stage 5 three-cyl engines and a compact exhaust gas aftertreatment system. Also on display will be models from the REX4 series. Available in fruit, special and vineyard versions, the 75, 90, 95, 102, and 112hp models are some of the most versatile in the Landini range. They can be specified with options including front axle and cab suspension and Robo-Shift electrohydraulic reverse shuttle with robotised speeds. Models from the latest 4-cyl Serie 4 and Serie 5, well-suited to livestock work and light handling, will be shown complete with Landini loaders. The three-model Serie 4, with power outputs of 61, 68 and 75hp, is a strong seller among livestock customers. Specification includes a 2,110mm wheelbase, mechanical rear linkage with 3,000kg lift capacity, optional front linkage and PTO, and 52-litre/min hydraulic system. Meanwhile, the 4-cyl 95/102/114hp Serie 5 is topped by the 5-120 Dynamic. FG Hall 8 Stand 8.640

Lamma launch for exciting new mounted drills Claydon will launch a new range of mounted drills at Lamma ‘22. Building on the company’s 20 years’ experience of this technology, the nine Claydon Evolution models take direct strip seeding to the next level. With working widths of 3, 4, 4.5, 4.8, 5 and 6m, they incorporate 9, 13, 15 or 19 tines and most feature a 1,910-litre hopper, with the 3m 3MF and 4m 4MRF having a 2700-litre tank split 50:50 between seed and fertiliser. Typical daily outputs range from 20ha for the 3m Evolution, which requires a tractor of at least 150hp, to 40ha for the 6m version which needs a minimum of 300hp (6m version is pictured). Claydon Evolution drills combine new levels of operational functionality with the tried and tested features which have made Claydon Opti-Till the crop establishment system of choice for

growers who want to reduce costs, increase productivity and improve soil health. All models feature as standard a hydraulic fan, Artemis metering control, tramlining facility, front tine/7in A-share configuration, together with a double rear toolbar and road lights. The Evolution line-up, which includes a 5m unit and 4m rigid grain/fertiliser model, incorporates a range of new features to improve operational functionality. Seed depth adjustment is now controlled hydraulically, improved access to the metering unit allows easier calibration, while frontmounted discs, which are operated

hydraulically from the tractor seat, can be specified for seeding into high residue situations. The 1,910-litre hopper on seed-only Evolution models holds 160-litres more than current Claydon Hybrid mounted models, while Evolution 3MF and 4m 4MRF versions hold an additional 600 litres. Other features include quick-fit knock-on/knock-off coulter options for the standard leading tine and A-Share to low disturbance twin disc and tine options. Multiple seed tool options allow a wide range of crops to be drilled across different soil types and situations, while the quick-change facility allows fast,

easy modification when required. A large, easily accessible toolbox incorporated into the step frame is also standard equipment. Options include GPS variable seed rate capability, pre-emergence marker arms, front disc toolbar stone protection, micro fertiliser applicator, low-disturbance twin tine kit, slug pelleter, blockage sensors and a light and vision kit. The design of the Claydon Evolution keeps running costs to a minimum, enabling fuel-efficient farming and minimal soil disturbance in all sowing scenarios. The drill operates accurately, reliably, and inexpensively across a wide range of situations, the simple, robust design and great flexibility allowing it to be used in the autumn or spring to establish any crop that can be air sown. The split hopper design of the 3m 3MF and 4m 4MRF models provides additional versatility, allowing fertiliser to be applied at the time of drilling. The new Evolution range will be available for delivery from autumn 2022 and will replace the current Hybrid range of mounted drills. It will be priced between the Hybrid mounted range it supersedes and the Hybrid Trailed drill range. FG Hall 6 Stand 6.600

Mix consistency is the key to feed performance Consistency is the key to a good ration mix, and it is mainly for this reason that BvL has seen a considerable increase in both demonstrations and sales of high-capacity twin and triple-auger mixers over the past year. It’s 40 years since Bernard van Lengerich Maschinenfabrick (BvL) introduced the first vertical feed mixer wagon to the market, during which time the company has grown to become one of the world’s leading manufacturers of diet mixers. Today, the BvL V-Mix range of diet feeders covers a wide range of machines, available in single, twin and triple augers variants and in capacity from 3.5–46m3. At the heart of all BvL mixers are powerful mixing augers, with Hardox leading edges and adjustable knives. Twin and triple auger versions incorporate mixing wedges for a thorough and consistent mix, while the patented EDS (Exact Dosing System) discharge ensures an even forage discharge. To reduce load on the tractor and make the V-Mix easier to drive, BvL offers a Powershift gearbox which incorporates a reduction gear with integral hydraulic clutch. This allows the V-Mix to be started in a low gear and for PTO speed to be increased under load up to full mixing speed, so reducing strain on the complete drive train. Options include features such as doors on both the left- and right-handside of the feeder for feeding flexibility and even simultaneous discharge to both sides. Additional discharge door options are available, as is a discharge conveyor. All machines are suitable for

Compact TMR, which involves the soaking and pre-mixing of the dry components of the ration with water. This is then left to soak overnight after which the rest of the ration mix is then added. The benefit of this is that it makes it impossible for the dry components of the forage to be separated out from the rest of the mix, either during the feeding out process or by the cow pre-sorting. As a result, every cow is fed a more consistent ration, resulting in a yield improvement of up to two litres per cow, in addition to potential improvements in milk quality. In place of the standard mixing augers, the Compact TMR augers fitted in the mixer are not as tall, but are wider and have extended mixing blades plus an additional auger blade for more intensive mixing. The mixing augers are made using a V2A rust-proof stainless-steel surfacing for durability. Due to the need to leave the wet mix in the mixer overnight and the extended mixing time, to protect the mixer body this is also faced with V2A rustproof stainless-steel and the augers are fitted with a seal to avoid water ingress to the inside of the auger cone. Unique to BvL is the availability of special coatings and hardened components for use with more abrasive, higher dry matter rations, making this option suited for beef cattle rations and large dairy herds.

New, advanced sprayer to go on show at Lamma compromising on overall sprayer and boom stability. It also enables the driver to steer with booms folded to help increase efficiency, especially within the smaller fields. The Aeon Centura Line is equipped as standard with PrimeFlow – a pressure-fed boom fluid system that guarantees rapid priming and prevents sedimentation and clogging. When spraying starts, liquid has already been distributed across the entire boom, circulating at the requested pressure through the spray lines. When spraying stops, the liquid will continue to circulate at a standby pressure. Even when spraying at low pressure, the spray lines are completely drained, leaving only a small residual volume, which means less liquid is required for cleaning. FG Hall 11 Stand 11.260

Biennial working demo returns in January J Riley’s extremely popular biennial working demonstration will return on 27th January 2022 – an unmissable fixture for everyone with an involvement in sugar beet harvesting and the wider industry. The event is widely regarded as the best place to see the latest advances and developments in harvesting technology from a UK market leader, as well as being an enjoyable day out, J Riley reckons. It will showcase Vervaet’s new rollerbed primary cleaning system,

which can be specified in place of the existing highly-regarded turbine-only layout on the highoutput six-wheel Beet Eater 625 Evo. Announced last spring, the first production rollerbed-equipped machines went to work for the 2021/2 sugar beet campaign, with

two machines sold in the UK – both of which have been working extremely well. This will be the first time the rollerbed is shown at a public working event. Intended to offer another option for potential customers already operating a rollerbed-type machine

in suitable soil types, its addition makes Vervaet the only harvester manufacturer to offer its customers the option of both primary cleaning methods. Additionally, the Vervaet system discharges onto a central cleaning turbine rather than a trace, eliminating a potential problem area. The central turbine is a well-proven method already in use on over 160 Vervaet harvesters currently operating in the UK. The compact and extremely manoeuvrable four-wheel Q-616 remains the most popular harvester in the Vervaet range. The model continues to be enhanced with minor updates annually, in line with Vervaet’s policy of continual improvement, and a 2021 machine will also be in action. Refreshments will be provided at the event, including the famous hog roast by north Norfolk butchers H.V. Graves, which is always highly appreciated by visitors. The location will be Great Witchingham in central Norfolk by kind permission of H Jones (Farms) Ltd. The postcode is NR9 5NY, and signs will be in place on the day (Thursday 27th January 2022).

Preview Lamma launch for new stealth point Manufacturer of replacement wearing parts Agricast will reveal the latest addition to its range of low disturbance subsurface cultivation points at Lamma 2022 – its new Stealth Xtra (STX) point. Compatible with the He-Va Stealth and Evolution machines, Agricast’s STX point has been designed to offer several improvements over the original design. The new point can also be retrofitted to any existing subsurface cultivator or subsoiler using Agricast’s in-house fabrication service. The Agricast STX point features an innovative system to prevent the point from moving from side

to side, thus reducing wear on the 15mm-thick, 500mm Hardox leg. Agricast has designed the point so that wings can be bolted onto it, giving farmers the option of lifting more soil if desired. Agricast has also improved the durability of the shin and added a larger tungsten tip on the nose. Another area in which Agricast has innovated is to the rear of the point, where the bolt is hidden in the shadow of the wing – significantly reducing wear to the fixing bolt. The STX is the third part to be added to Agricast’s range of low disturbance points, joining the Low Disturbance Xtra, LDX, and the Grassland Xtra, GLX. Agricast’s range of packers will also be taking centre-stage at Lamma, with the company showcasing its STP-650 steeltensioned packer and LCP-600 lowcost packer using recycled rings. “Lamma is an incredibly important part of the farming calendar, and we missed exhibiting last year,” says William Robinson, Agricast’s managing director.

Bespoke tines and soil-engaging parts on show at Lamma Bespoke soil restructuring tines from Tillso sporting different point and wing combinations will feature alongside the SPL Ultra range of soil-engaging parts on the Spaldings stand at the Lamma show. Spaldings is sole distributor of Tillso’s Sabre system, a multi-component assembly of points and wings designed for efficient restructuring of compacted soils; the designs result from intensive studies of soil mechanics. The system comprises a common point and shin and four soillifting wing assemblies to suit different soil types and working depths. Tillso’s owner Chris Lane will join Spaldings on the stand at Lamma to talk through the features and benefits. The retro-fit components are available for a number of different manufacturers’ subsoilers, and also cultivators fitted with soil-loosening tines. A one-piece delta-shaped wing is used on the Ultralite for 150–250mm working depths and 400–500mm spacing, while the Mono’s is designed for 225–400mm and 600–750mm spacing.

Tillso’s Lite and Max products have a cast supporting frog with separate left- and right-hand bolt-on wing assemblies formed as a wide wing slat or with two chisel-like wing slats for deeper working. Chris Lane explains: “They are all calculated to apply controlled tension to compacted soil, which fractures as it is lifted and falls off the wings to permanently rearrange the soil aggregates.” The Spaldings exhibit will also include items from the SPL Ultra range of premium-quality points, wings and shins for leading makes of cultivator and subsoiler, as well as the laser scanning technology that measures wear patterns and 3D printer for prototypes used in the development of these parts. Original wearing parts for Grimme machinery will also be shown as Spaldings is an approved national

Upgrades and new designs on display Following on from a recordbreaking year for sales, the Simtech stand at Lamma ‘22 will feature the numerous upgrades it has made to its T-Sem drills, but more importantly, the complete redesign of the company’s entire pneumatic drill range. Simtech’s Simon Clarke explains: “We have re-thought all aspects of the pneumatic drills to improve functionality and performance. We have a new low-level hopper, with a large platform area to make filling and cleaning of the hopper easier. Calibration and hopper emptying is carried out with the

same detachable stainless-steel chute and because the hopper is positioned as far forward as possible, the whole drill is more balanced on the tractor.” Simtech has also developed an ingenious new depth control system. “We wanted to rethink the depth control for our folding range, where access and available room are limited, so we have designed a simple spiral wheel that as its rotated through its eighteen positions gives a depth range from 0–10cm drilling depth,” says Simon. “A second spiral wheel placed above the first, is also adjusted to restrict the roller from dropping when the drill is lifted. We were so happy with the new design’s performance on a number of machines this autumn, that we have decided to roll it out over the entire T-Sem range.” At Simtech’s stand, you will receive a warm welcome and expert advice, from staff with many years’ experience in direct drilling and regenerative agriculture.

The ultimate superstar in the tined weeder industry Just in time for Lamma 2022, Einbock is expanding its weeding technology product program with a completely newly developed precision tined weeder. The AerostarFusion demonstrates its advantages particularly in special crops such as vegetables and herbs, but also in hill-crops. The premium weeder scores with indirectly spring-loaded tines that can be set very easily and precisely for sensitive operation. Furthermore, common field crops such as maize, beets, soya, etc., can of course be weeded in extremely early stages of crop growth with excellent results. In all aspects, such as tine arrangement, adjustment and mounting, wheels, frame design, etc. the premium weeder is the ultimate superstar in the tined weeder segment. Just like its

Aerostar siblings, the adjustment of aggressiveness is done without pressure cables. This makes the Fusion user-friendly and reliable in equal measure. Working in higher crops (cereals, soy and maize) is no problem at all. The special frame design ensures smooth operation and durability at the same time. Extreme flexibility is also provided by the individually placeable support wheels and the unique, adjustable frame. The Aerostar-Fusion is the next step Einbock is taking to build its status as the manufacturer with the widest range of machines for mechanical weed control. The ninth machine in the range will be available in the UK for demonstration from Terrington Machinery for the next season in a limited number of pre-production machines. FG Hall 19 Stand 19.240

Reliable and proven silage films on display at Lamma ‘22 In these uncertain times, UK farmers need a business partner that can offer both high-quality products and local support. Coveris meets both these criteria thanks to more than 30 years of experience in manufacturing premium silage films known worldwide and having a strong presence in the UK. At the upcoming Lamma 2022 trade show in Birmingham, the manufacturer will present different solutions for bale wrapping – FarmFilm Performance and Unterland Silage Films. FarmFilm Performance is a product known to the UK market for over 30 years, which is now

available under the Coveris brand. Manufactured in Winsford, Cheshire, it stands out with high puncture and tear resistance, which ensures perfect round and square bale wrapping. Additionally, the multilayered material offers long-standing performance and crop protection in any weather. On top of that, it

offers a double-sided adhesion that ensures the tail stays intact on the bale. Available at your local supplier across the UK, FarmFilm Performance is a brand that is trusted by farmers and contractors all around the world, the company claims. With Unterland Crystal, Coveris

offers a recyclable silage film, fully in line with the company’s No Waste vision. The film answers the growing market demand for recyclable silage films by ensuring complete transparency while maintaining the same quality as standardcoloured films. By simply switching from coloured to transparent films, Coveris reckons farmers can achieve considerable savings in the recycling process. The transparent film fits on all wrapper types without any adjustments, simplifies bale trading and effectively protects the bales from external factors like bird damage during a guaranteed one-year outdoor storage period. Unterland Crystal already received positive feedback from Solway Recycling Ltd in Scotland and Emerald Isle Recycle in Northern Ireland. UK customers also benefit from Coveris’ Films Science Lab at Coveris Winsford in the UK, providing stateof-the-art technology and marketleading expertise. Learn more about Coveris’ products and how the company’s Films Science Lab supports new developments by visiting the team at the Lamma show. FG Hall 10 Stand 10.144

Moving towards the connected farm What does the future hold for UK farmers? The sector faces consistently evolving challenges from all directions – we need to feed the rising world population in a more efficient way, while simultaneously addressing issues of climate change, sustainability, and animal welfare.

For Farmplan, which claims to be the UK’s leading agricultural software specialists, these are issues the company is keen to meet head-on. “These challenges can often throw up new opportunities,” says

Ben Hatton, sales and key account manager at Farmplan (pictured). “These challenges include: how can we achieve more value from the work we put in? How do we reconcile maximising profitability while increasing sustainability? What are the right tools to do so? “More than ever, farmers are asking themselves these questions. The reality of agriculture is changing. Agriculture is always evolving. Our objective is to help our customers meet these changing requirements and fulfil new opportunities.” For Farmplan, this means providing the right tools and connections for its farmers and endusers, whether that be those that are farming or helping those that are to do the job and drive further value from the company’s solutions.

Where does the value come from? A large and increasing part of that is through connectivity and integration. Farmplan sees the successful farms of the future as being “connected.” “For us, connectivity and integration should add value for the farmer – not just those that want to integrate. In the same way that data and tech are not the only solutions to the challenges facing agriculture, data and its connections and integrations should complement the local skills and knowledge that are on the farm,” says Ben. “Currently, there’s lots of data within agriculture. A huge amount of it is siloed, sitting there unused and generating very little worth for the farm. Joining that data together – and facilitating its smooth travel in a way that removes stress and unnecessary admin for farmers – is how you can strike gold.” To demonstrate just what kind of difference integration can make for UK farmers, Farmplan highlights its ongoing updates and expansions to its existing suite of software solutions. Although

products like Gatekeeper and Business Cloud are robust and powerful in themselves, Farmplan understands that other providers may offer specific features that Farmplan does not. “Rather than seek to challenge this space and expand functionality in an attempt to be the one and only provider, we recognise the power of partnerships and complementary systems and providers,” says Ben. “For example, users of our Gatekeeper crop management system can now access the data collection capabilities of Climate FieldView, the digital farming platform from Bayer, or wirelessly transmit data sets between Gatekeeper and Claas machinery. “Moving towards a connected farm isn’t just an ambition for Farmplan. It’s an active ongoing mission. There are many challenges and also opportunities. We’re enabling UK farmers to grow their business and improve their productivity, all in a more sustainable way. It’s an exciting time for agriculture.” FG Hall 10 Stand 10.510

Diet feeders plus muck and slurry spreaders on display

Hi-Spec Engineering will again be attending the Lamma Show where it will have on display models from both its comprehensive livestock feeding and muck and slurry handling product ranges. With its range of Vertical Auger and MixMax paddle type feeders, Hi-Spec Engineering Co Ltd offers one of the widest choices of diet feeders on the market. A particular feature of Hi-Spec single and twin auger diet feeders is the range of options available – it offers one of the widest range of feedout options available of any machine

on the market, ensuring that there is an option to suit all types of building and feeding system. Capacities range from 7–32m3 and the feeders efficiently incorporate complete bales into the mix, due to the unique knife arrangement and the low pitch mixing and chopping auger, fitted with eight self-sharpening blades mixer, which also allows the

Vertical Augers to be used with lower horsepower tractors. The Hi-Spec MixMax range of paddle type feeders range from 10–24m3, and are designed to be flexible, sturdy and economical, with a long-lasting and simple design that ensures low running costs and low maintenance. MixMax paddle feeders use the Hi-Spec Feed-Flo mixing system that features a single angled rotor arm to provide thorough end-to-end mixing and a light fluffy ration without the need for multiple augers. The mix is discharged through a hydraulicallyoperated door through a teaser roller that makes it easy to adjust the flow rate and provide an even, consistent feedout. The Hi-Spec tanker range includes a wide range of models with capacities from 3,600–22,700 litres. All Hi-Spec vacuum tankers are manufactured using high quality British steel and incorporate internal implosion rings and a collared dished end as standard. A wide range of filling options are available, including high capacity pumps and a cab operated filling arm. The intake system can also incorporate a

Vogelsang Rotacut 5000 chopping unit to avoid any potential blockage to the injectors caused by straw or silage in the slurry. A wide range of spreading attachments are available, including the Hi-Spec Trailing Shoe, available in working widths of 6, 7.5 and 9m. This features a robust chassis mounted mast which ensures that the tanker and shoe are perfectly balanced and that the shoe is properly supported to the tanker. The Hi-Spec trailing shoe can also be used as a dribble bar if needed. The range of spreaders from Hi-Spec Engineering include both the rear discharge Xcel 1250 spreader and two side discharge machines. The Hi-Spec Xcel 1250 uses a rotary chain and flail system to achieve a good break up of material, which is then spread using a pair of spinning discs. The Xcel 1250 has a capacity of 12t and can evenly spread material up to 24m. Options include various tyre sizes, a weigh cell and the Isobus compatible RDS iSOCAN Apollo spreader control system or the straightforward Digi-Star GT400 weighing system. FG Hall 6 Stand 6.220

Modern solutions to move businesses forward After a one-year break, Bednar says it looks forward to welcoming visitors to its stand at the Lamma 2022 show. As part of the sales and marketing alliance with Case IH, the stand will also feature the latest tractor models, including the Optum ASF Connect. See below for what machines you can look forward to from Bednar: Efecta CE 12000 with Floatrax: This seed drill with a working width of 12m, offers a number of competitive advantages. The exhibition machine will be equipped with Turbo coulters which are suitable for direct sowing. The machine will be present with a Bednar Floatrax tracks which reduces the pressure on your soil structures. With section control, front working equipment and tracked running gear, Bednar says its CE 12000 is industry leading and solidifies its forward-thinking innovations. Swifterdisc XE 12400: This popular disc cultivator range will be represented by the XE 12400 model – one of the new products for 2022 with many improvements.

At the exhibition, Bednar will present a model with a front levelling bar, aggressive 560mm discs and a rear Cutpack roller. Omega OO 4000 FL: Being so flexible, Bednar reckons the Omega OO_FL is probably the only drill you would ever need to buy. You can seed up to three types of crops in one pass or apply fertiliser and seed at the same time. At Lamma will be a model with a working width of 4m with Turbo Discs for direct drilling abilities. Mulcher MZ 6000: This threerotor, trailed rotary cutter with a working width of 6m is a very popular machine that combines a high area capacity with low demand for the tractor towing power. The robust frame, which has a hot-dipped galvanised body, offers strength and longevity. This means the use of the rotary cutter can be maximised, even when used in the most demanding conditions of an agricultural operation.

Swifter SO 6000F: This popular model of seedbed cultivator has very low hp requirement from the tractor thanks to its light, but highly durable frame. In one pass, it can create an even seedbed – important for the even emergence of a crop – with a unique combination of up to eight operations. Terraland TN 3000: A universal sub soiler and cultivator. Bednar

will demonstrate this ‘2-in-1’ option on the Terraland TN 3000 machine, which will be equipped with two types of tines – Active-Mix for deep loosening and Zero-Mix for subsoiling and aerating the soil without active mixing. Bednar says its team are looking forward to showing visitors the modern machines that will move their business forward. FG Hall 8 Stand 8.610

Preview Regenerative farming methods on the rise

New launch for Lamma ‘22

Dalbo is excited to launch at Lamma 2022 its new 8m Powerchain (pictured). The Powerchain is a disc cultivator in a diamond formation. It’s a high-speed, low maintenance implement that will create a full cut across the working width. The Powerchain can be used for multiple tasks, postharvest cultivations, breaking down, destroying and incorporating cover crop plus weed and residue control. It will have the option to mount a seeder, enabling you to do multiple jobs in one pass. Dalbo will offer a range of discs with various disc weight options to suit your specific needs. Dalbo will also be showing the 12.3m PowerRoll hydraulic folding Cambridge roller fitted with hydraulically adjustable crackerboard. This very popular range comes in working widths from 10.3–18.3m.

The unique hydraulic weight transfer system ensures even consolidation across the full working width. Also on display will be the 6.3m Greenline grassland roller. The Greenline is fitted with 710x10mm ballast drums with curved edges to prevent scuffing, and the optional two rows of 12mm harrow tines with a cracker board. The Greenline will also be fitted with a hydraulically-driven seeder. The line-up is completed by the multifunctional 6.3m Maxiroll, fitted with Cambridge rings and a hydraulically adjustable crackerboard. Ideal to use as a cultivation tool on ploughed and or cultivated land plus conventional rolling. The Maxiroll can also be fitted with numerous attachments such as a knife roller, harrow tines and clod crackers. FG Hall 20 Stand 20.740

Bullock Tillage managing director Nigel Bullock says the company is pleased to be exhibiting once again at the Lamma show in 2022. Nigel explains: “Since the show of 2020, greater emphasis has been placed on agriculture to reach carbon zero and follow a regeneration method of farming. “Many farmers are now experimenting with inter-row seeding and companion cropping, to both help with pest control in crops and also to reduce artificial fertiliser usage, which is a major source of carbon emissions in arable farming.

“Bullock Tillage has, for many years, sold airseeders in both 120 and 300 litre versions, but now customers have a twin hopper version enabling two types of seeds to be planted at different seed rates all controlled from one control box. “Also on display will be the T17, a popular cost effective front mounted airseeder with boom widths of 3, 4, 5 and 6m and several tank size options. These applicators are ideal for planting any small seeds and cover crops when run in combination with a rear mounted cultivator.” FG Hall 6 Stand 6.540

Agricultural parts specialist proudly takes over parts company

Peterborough-based agricultural machinery specialist, Westlake Plough and Tractor Parts, proudly took over ownership of Dowdeswell Parts Services in August 2020 when the business sadly ceased trading early in 2020. Westlake will be continuing to manufacture Dowdeswell parts and will bring ploughs back into production in 2022. Westlake is a specialist in new and obsolete agricultural parts, plus professional dealer clearances with over 250,000 parts in stock. Its stores hold parts for tractors, ploughs, balers, wheels, tyres, combines, 4x4 vehicles, engines, spreaders, grass mowers, hay

turners, drills and bygones – as well as machinery literature, bolts, paint, oil filters, belts, bearings, pins, pto shafts, workshop tools and more. Westlake director Mark Weston first started the company in 1995, having grown up in farming and worked in agricultural engineering. He took an interest in selling farm machinery whilst attending ploughing matches and sales around the country. Increasing interest in vintage/classic implements and recognising the changing market at an early stage has enabled Westlake to build a name for itself within this specialist marketplace. Now, the company is known for its vast knowledge, as well as being able to source hard-to-find parts due to its vast range of stock. For further information, visit the Westlake team at Lamma 2022, contact the team directly or view the large online store, which is updated regularly: www.westlakeploughparts. FG Hall 19 Stand 19.116

Preview High-capacity rear discharge spreaders Built to a high-capacity specification and capable of achieving a spread width of up to 12m (40ft), the West Maelstron Rear Discharge unit is particularly suited for farmyard manure, according to the company. With the optional hydraulic rear door, it can also be used with poultry muck and semi-solids. The twin rear vertical rotating beaters operate at a powerful 400rpm from the PTO input drive of 1,000rpm. For trouble-free maintenance, the rear beaters are fitted with replaceable blades, and feature a protected two-piece drive-line with a PTO and slip clutch. The rear discharge machine has large diameter tyres to minimise any ground pressure and is fully

equipped for road use as standard, with hydraulic brakes, hand brake and lighting. The wide-mouthed design of the main body allows for easier loading with modern telehandlers and larger buckets. It also enables the load to be increased with larger capacities. The introduction of body extension alters the model to reflect the increased load capacity. Additional options are available for these machines; electric in cab controls for the bed chains, mudguards and weighing systems are a few of the optional items. Six different models are available in the West Maelstrom Rear Discharge line-up, ranging from 8–18m3. FG Hall 10 Stand 10.460

Early users impressed by new weighing software Suffolk-based weighing equipment manufacturer Griffith Elder recently launched its new software range, Weighbus, which allows users to configure operation, data collection and reporting exactly as they require it. Early users of the software have been impressed by the speed of operation, explains company spokesman Peter King. Its flexibility allows users to create two different types of tickets, so specific data can be captured at harvest time, while different data can be captured at weighing out. Mr King says: “What that means is at harvest time with the remote buttons, it is very quick for a complete weighing to be carried out without the driver needing to leave the vehicle. Every

driver, without knowing how to use the software, can drive onto the weighbridge and within less than a second, at the press of a button, the whole weighing is complete and all the data captured.” Another benefit is the reduced likelihood of error, as data is assigned by the manager or farm owner. Ordinarily, the driver would have to leave the tractor and input data into a screen, where errors can easily occur. The software also allows any device on the network – be it mobile phone, tablet or computer – to connect and carry out a weighing or use the Weighbus software as if they were in the weighbridge office.

Helping you to make farm-scale decisions Looking for a variable rate drill conversion kit? How to navigate new environmental legislation? Or manage carbon? Or how best to use your nitrogen next season? Then visit the Hutchinsons stand at Lamma. As a business, Hutchinsons has been investing heavily in developing services and technologies, all of which have been trialled, tested and validated at a farm-scale level at Hutchinsons’ Helix Farms, to allow growers to work towards sustainability and profitability, in a climate of rising input costs. Converting a standard land metered drill into a variable rate drill has never been easier or more affordable with the Hutchinsons variable rate drill conversion kit, Omnia E-Seed. Omnia E-Seed is the first standalone variable rate drill conversion kit that fits to any standard drill and does exactly what it says on the box – it enables a standard land metered drill to be converted simply and efficiently into a variable rate drill. Omnia E-Seed will be on the Hutchinsons stand at Lamma, so come along and find out more. TerraMap Carbon is the first ever carbon mapping service to provide the most accurate baseline measurement of both organic and active carbon in the soil and is now available to UK farmers. How can the carbon measurements be used? Within the Omnia Carbon management tool, it is possible to create different rotation scenarios from types of cropping and variety to stewardship and management practices and see the projected CO2 impact and financial performance for each scenario. Future Services within Omnia will offer the ability to also create potential cropping scenarios to calculate costs of production,

allowing users to make decisions on how to manage both carbon and profit before putting a crop into the ground. We are in unprecedented times with the spiralling price and limited availability of nitrogen fertilisers for the coming spring. Something that has been relatively cheap and in plentiful supply is now far from either. Therefore, our approach to nitrogen management should reflect a response to the circumstances. Based on Hutchinsons’ current understanding of supply and pricing – what can be done? Pop along to the company’s stand to discuss how to measure and fine tune nitrogen applications for the spring. Environmental services: The switch from direct support to environmentally-focused payments presents massive challenges over coming years. Hutchinsons is helping growers to plan the best way forward to benefit from the opportunities available by evaluating the many stewardship options to help farmers make more informed decisions. Agroecology services: Having launched its first Agroecology Helix Farm that is looking solely at the principles and practices of agroecology, Hutchinsons would be delighted to talk about some of the bigger picture questions that it is looking at. For more information on these services or any other crop production issues, visit the Hutchinsons stand during Lamma where technical experts will be on hand to answer any of your questions.

Major Equipment (Intl) Ltd is returning to Lamma with an exciting line-up of machinery for the progressive farming operation. The multi-award winning manufacturer of agricultural machinery is showcasing its own dedicated lowemission slurry application systems. The Major 7.5m Dribble Bar and Trailing Shoe applicators feature a universal adaptor with adjustable height for maximum flexibility and improved flow, and can be retrofitted onto any slurry tanker. The Major applicators are designed to apply slurry to the soil surface as accurately as possible while minimising nutrient loss and ammonia emissions. Both units have 30 outlets spaced 260mm apart for even and precise distribution of liquid material in long and short grass.

They are easily mounted onto the back door of a vacuum tank without welding or fabricating, making them ideal for retro-fitting. Brackets with settings in 60mm increments allow either unit to be set according to the tanker height making the system completely adaptable to any tanker make or model. They can also be used with the existing splashplate left in place. Best-in-class components are used in the construction of the slurry applicators. A Vogelsang ExaCut macerator is centred on both units to deliver optimal cutting results and eliminate blockages. For safe and legal road use, a full lighting board is fitted as standard. There is a double self-aligning pivot hinge with easy access grease point on each wing for increased durability. FG Hall TBC Stand TBC

Preview Separator offers versatility in grading lines The Samro Stone and Clod separator from Farm Electronics’ parent company Tolsma-Grisnich seems to have created a large amount of interest from customers over the past few months. The idea of this particular machine is to remove stones and clods from a batch of potatoes, onions and other root vegetables

with an accuracy of 95%. There are three models available, offering capacities from 12–50t/hour. The machine can be incorporated into existing grading lines or as a one-off stand-alone unit which means it is very versatile and could appeal to many growers as a low-cost, high-efficiency tool in their sorting operation as well as savings on labour. This has the ability to fit many UK growers’ grading lines as a viable alternative to optical sorters, which can be costly. The product to be processed is either fed onto the supply belt of the separator by a transport conveyor belt (TG Samro 24 and TG Samro 44) or directly via a chute (TG Samro 72). From there, the product is transported towards the separation unit. A magnetic bar is fitted underneath the supply belt, which only polarises the clods and stones. Sensors then control pneumatic rams which eject the polarised clods and stones. The sensitivity of the sensors to clods and stones can be set separately. The clods and stones are removed by means of a transverse conveyor. FG Hall 8–9 Stand 8–9.220

Specialty harvesters and controlled application Ploeger invites you to visit its stand during the Lamma show in order to learn more about the company’s range of specialty harvesters and controlled application. Ploeger will have an AT4103 LNMS self-propelled three-wheeled applicator, a BH100 fresh market bean harvester and a CP100 fresh market sweetcorn puller on display. As the costs of urea and ammonium nitrate have more than doubled since last year, farmers are facing the question how to profitably fulfil the N-requirement of their crops for the 2022 season. Exact application of valuable nutrients has always been a key to maximise the quality and yield of field crops, however with increasing nutrient prices the effect of precise application is increasing. When manure, digestate or other organic nutrients are available, it is

well worth considering the most efficient application technique. For over three decades, Ploeger has offered a range of fresh market vegetable harvesters for beans and sweetcorn. The CP100 corn puller enables fresh market growers to deliver mechanically harvested, top quality sweetcorn with good shelf-life. The CP100 provides its gentle harvesting technique in a one-row tractor drawn model. The BH100 single row tow-behind green bean harvester allows growers to compete more favourably in a competitive market where finding good reliable help for hand picking is more difficult each year. Growers know that having good quality crops available on a moment’s notice, means more sales and higher profits. FG Hall 12 Stand 12.540

Farmtrac’s flagship all-electric FT25G and higher power FT6075E tractors will be at Lamma. Ever since it hit the market in 2019, the FT25G has generated much interest from those wanting a clean energy alternative for their grounds. The only compact tractor on the market to feature a lithium-ion battery, it has an onboard charger and can be charged from any domestic socket to 100% in eight hours. And with seven hours of charge, it won’t run out of power in the middle of a job. It was these great features that won it the FT25G the Innovation Award at Saltex 2021 in the Sustainability and Environmental category. While the environmentallyfriendly model in the Farmtrac range is undoubtedly its flagship model, it’s just the start of all that is good and innovative about Farmtrac’s offering, the company says; joining the FT25G is the 75hp dieselpowered FT6075 model. With more torque, better fuel economy and multiple speed choices, a

Going from strength to strength In 1946, Mr H. C. Brown had the inspiration to buy ex-Army buildings, dismantle them, sell them and re-erect them as farm buildings for livestock and implement sheds – and this became a very interesting and successful business. As the company developed, Mr Brown decided to design, manufacture and erect new timber buildings, including poultry houses, implement sheds, cedar bungalows and village halls. Added to these were piggeries, garages and garden sheds. These early designs have been developed into the buildings the company now manufactures, supplies and erects all over the country. In 1963, Mr and Mrs Brown decided to form the company Browns of Wem Ltd and became the sole directors. At this time, it became necessary to expand; and a new factory and office block, together with a maintenance garage, were built. By this time, 200 men, 18 office

staff and four sales representatives were employed by the company. With a large fleet of vans, motor cars and lorries, the company was soon supplying buildings to customers all over the British Isles and exporting living accommodation as far away as Turkey. By this time, the demand for steel framed farm buildings had developed and two large steel factories were built to prefabricate the steel and extra men were employed to design and manufacture all types and sizes of buildings and to erect these buildings to the specifications of the time. In the mid 1990s, Mr and Mrs Brown decided to retire from the business and Browns of Wem Ltd was passed down to their four grandchildren – two of whom still run the business and continue to develop those early building designs.

A reflection of the struggle some farmers had this harvest to get their crops dry in time to meet market and storage requirements. “I am pretty sure there will be a lot of interest in the Svegma continuous flow drier we will have on display on our stand at Lamma. The uncertain weather patterns we are experiencing mean that everyone is looking to get geared up for future harvests,” he adds. With a reputation for outstanding quality and efficiency, BDC Systems’ Svegma driers are used extensively by farmers, farming co-operatives, commercial plant operators and

maltsters. The first Svegma drier was installed in the UK 38 years ago and there are now over 1,000 in place. BDC Systems’ Moisture Monitoring System (MMS) will also be on show at Lamma. BDC’s MMS helps farmers and grain store operators to overcome the perennial challenge of how to accurately and automatically check moisture content (mc) of wet grain as it enters storage. The ability to pre-configure the MMS to automatically send text alerts should the mc fall above or below predefined maximum and minimum levels, enables farmers/grain store operators to make the necessary adjustments remotely and swiftly to restore mc to the required levels. Being able to remotely adjust grain drier settings ensures the drier is optimised so the correct mc is maintained, helping to significantly reduce energy costs. Although Skandia Elevator’s nextnext generation H-Line elevator has

been available for delivery since early 2021, Covid-19 restrictions have meant that Lamma 2022 will be the first time that BDC Systems has been able to showcase the elevator in the UK. Larger farm enterprises, commercial grain storage operators and milling plants, all requiring high tonnage grain handling capability, will be able to see the H-Line on the BDC Systems’ stand. “Skandia has listened to market demands and the next-generation H-Line delivers what customers want: elevators that are easier to maintain, have optimised flow which means

less wear and tear to both machinery and grain and, which can now reach an overall height of 70m,” explains Andrew. The Svegma driers, Skandia elevators and our MMS are key components of BDC Systems’ grain handling solutions which also include cleaning, storage, ventilation, milling and mixing equipment. Visit the BDC Systems team at Lamma to find out how they deliver grain handling solutions that meet customer demands for harvest 2022 and crucially for harvests of the future. FG Hall 8 Stand 8.410

Re-thinking your grassland aeration With current fertiliser challenges and pressure to increase carbon capture and efficiency on farm, AerWorx offers some fresh advice on aeration of compacted soil. AerWorx is the first and original drum aerator in the UK, engineered to aerate compacted soil and increase yields. The company has supplied aerators within the UK and Europe for the past 15 years and has a full range of machines, suiting all types of applications and markets. It has machines for all types of agriculture, water companies, events venues, racecourses, amenity grounds, national parks and airports. Grassland requires the same level of husbandry as arable land. Improved grass growth and soil structure will also improve carbon capture.

When soil is compacted, a ‘hard pan’ forms, helpful soil microbes and earthworms are reduced or eliminated, pastures dry out faster, become water-logged quicker and plant growth is restricted, resulting in lower crop and pasture yields. Grassland aeration has traditionally used conventional lightweight aerators in the spring when the soil is still wet, allowing the machines to penetrate. Rather than the traditional method, AerWorx promotes the heavier aerator; the faster you use the machine, the better the job you will do – speed + weight = kinetic energy.

Grassland management is particularly key with the current pressures of fertiliser use, prices, run-off, waterlogging and the need to produce your final product as efficiently as possible. Treat the soil as a living asset that needs water, oxygen and temperature to thrive, AerWorx advises. The use of natural fertilisers and improving organic matter is becoming critical to growing productive grassland, which in turn improves carbon capture. But if the soil isn’t in the correct conditions to absorb the natural fertilisers, then it’s irrelevant how much you spread. All these benefits with aeration give water and nutrients better access to root systems of your forage and can give you earlier turnout times, extended grazing, reduced water logging, run-off, water retention and better drought resistance. For all enquiries, contact AerWorx directly or visit FG Hall 11 Stand 11.332

Farm-Tec says it continues to provide leading analysis technology and support, allowing its customers to achieve the most accurate, reliable, and repeatable moisture results available. Coupling the DICKEYjohn Grain Analysis Computer (GAC) UGMA technology with Farm-Tec’s own UK derived and monitored calibrations, over 350 UK customers are benefiting from market leading performance, the firm claims. Instruments are available as both desk top; GAC 2500, and hand held; MiniGAC 2500. While both machines utilise the UGMA technology and UK-derived and monitored calibrations, the bench top machine also offers advanced features, such as an analysis time of 10 seconds, colour touchscreen navigation, 3,000 sample memory and connectivity options. Monitoring performance against other moisture analysers and reference ovens, the FarmTec solution consistently delivers excellent results in the leading proficiency testing scheme samples. Over the last five

harvests (2016–2020) the GAC 2500 has a standard deviation of 0.16 when analysing wheat and 0.18 when analysing barley. This means the GAC 2500 is correct to within 0.16% moisture when analysing wheat and 0.18% when analysing barley. Farm-Tec works closely with its customers, providing support, service and calibration updates to ensure that the GAC 2500 consistently delivers the reliability and confidence required when testing their grain.

Preview Award-winning company returns to Lamma

New planter to be launched at Lamma 2022 Standen Engineering Ltd is delighted to launch the all new Standen SR 200 Planter at this year’s Lamma show. The SR 200 is an easy to set-up, tworow, accurate cup planter. It includes a revolutionary new cup design that is capable of handling longer and larger seed, something that cup planters have traditionally struggled to do, the company reckons. The Standen SR 200 Planter offers a high work rate, achieving fast forward speeds of up to 10km/h. The updated in-cab touch screen controls operate the hydraulic space selector to give high levels of

control over seed spacing and ensure accurate planting. The new stainless steel hood design with hydraulic pressure adjustment forms perfect ridges even at high forward speeds. Optional equipment on this new planter includes a hillside kit which includes a steering and vibrating seed return system as well as an automatic depth control. Standen is taking orders for two-row models now which will be in production for the 2022 season. Three-row and four-row offset models are in development for 2023. FG Hall 8 Stand 8.840

Martin Lishman Ltd will once again be exhibiting the latest in crop storage technology at Lamma ‘22. In 2019, the company won the Gold Innovation Award for ImpacTrack, a low-cost shock sensor inside a synthetic food shape that finds sources of damage and helps to reduce fresh produce waste during processing and transport. Now, over 35 ImpacTrack shapes are available. They mimic produce ranging from a mussel to a pineapple, including highly sensitive produce such as apples and avocados. In 2012, Martin Lishman won Best New Product for the Barn Owl Wireless system, which enables store managers to monitor temperatures remotely and control crop store fans automatically via a cloud-based portal, removing the need to manually check temperatures and turn cooling fans on and off. “We have had a surge in farmers approaching us for Barn

Machinery Supporting you on the journey ahead The Farming Community Network (FCN) is a voluntary organisation and charity that supports farmers and families within the farming community through difficult times. Each year FCN helps around 6,000 people deal with a variety of issues, including financial difficulties, animal disease, mental health and family disputes. Over 400 volunteers are located throughout England and Wales, many of whom are involved in farming, or have close links with agriculture and therefore have a great understanding of the issues farm workers and farming families regularly face. In addition to local groups of volunteers, FCN operates a confidential national helpline (0300 011 1999, open 7am-11pm every day of the year) and e-helpline ( The FarmWell platform ( is a useful online resource to support your farm business and help you to develop personal resilience. New research FCN has published with the University of Exeter’s Centre

for Rural Policy Research calls for a ‘culture change’ in farming to help normalise taking time away from the farm and looking after our mental health and wellbeing. FCN’s recent publication, The Journey Ahead, features articles, Q&As and case studies informed by more than 40 organisations across agriculture, covering topics such as succession planning, diversification, managing change and staying physically and mentally well on the farm. Stop by FCN’s stand at Lamma ’22 to pick up a copy. FCN relies solely on donations and grants in order to continue supporting the farming community. FG Hall 10 Stand 10.140

Simple Isobus-compatible operating system

Innovative technology provides ’perfect’ rake solution The four-rotary rake Star 1250I50 T with adjustable working width from 9.9–12.5m and efficiency up to 18.5ha/hour is the perfect solution for large farms and contractors, says SIP. Innovative technologies, simple operation and excellent maneuverability result in clean, even and airy swaths. The two-point pivoting linkage offers a large +/- 75-degree turning angle that allows excellent agility and maneuverability. Special pivoting gearboxes in the front, and the Y-shaped gearbox in the back reduce the loads on the rotors’ PTOs. Special mounting of the rotors with innovative cross-shaped hinges allows ±300 mm rotor movement upwards and downwards independently of the chassis enabling perfect 3D ground tracking. The modular rotor design ensures easy maintenance. Continuously adjustable

cam track with large diameter of 42cm ensures smooth raking and creation of evenly shaped central swaths with adjustable width from 1.3–2.2m. The working height of the rotors and spring tines is hydraulically adjustable separate for the front and rear pair of rotors. An electro-hydraulic steering system is all about hassle-free operation for a driver. It features automatic transport folding and unfolding into the working position and separate or partial rotors lifting when turning at the headlands or driving over the swaths. The robust design and the use of high-quality materials ensure excellent performance and a long service life. This professional rake delivers an even and clean trapezoidal swath, making it easy to harvest and saving energy and time. FG Hall 20 Stand 20.370

Following the growing demand from the market for a simple system that is Isobus compatible, Kaweco has launched a new operating system. The Easy Bus system is a simple variant of the extensive Isobus Premium. The Kaweco Easy Bus system is easy to use with a tractor terminal or separately supplied monitor. The system is based on the LoadSensing system from Kaweco with joystick control. All functions of the tank can be controlled with a touchscreen or via the tractor’s F-function. The system comes without terminal as standard and is meant for integration into the tractor terminal. Starting and stopping applicating/filling is done with a preset sequence. This means that you only need to use one button at a time to start applicating or filling. The suction arm and other functions can be easily assigned to an F-button on the tractor or to an optional joystick.

The Easy Bus system differs from the Isobus Premium system in its simplicity. It has fewer sensors, and no flow meter is supplied as standard. This means a simple yet complete way of operating via the tractor’s Isobus. The advantage of the system lies in the simplicity of operation and the fact that there is no need to install a separate terminal in the tractor. FG Hall TBC Stand TBC

Drain-jetter specialist to display high-tech options Sprayer and drain-jetter specialist Mitchell-Rowlands gives a run-through of available products. Mitchell-Rowlands has seen a basic S-S Professional Drain-Jetter first imported in 1992 develop into the high-tech versions available today. The robust 3-point linkage frame holding a narrow drum (capacity is up to 600m) helps with neat rewinding of the hose. However, bear in mind that for efficient cleaning of

drains, only buy enough hose on the reel to suit your drain lengths, the company says. Mitchell-Rowlands is the first to have twin hydraulic anti-slip motors as standard on the drive system and to grip the hose with four special 200mm wheels as standard, giving virtually no slip when hitting blockages.

The Guide Arm to the ditch is controlled hydraulically up and down. The hydraulic folding and unfolding arm becomes telescopic using the same hydraulic cylinder to reach the outfall easily. For ease of use left and right, 10-degree movement of the guide arm doesn't mean the tractor always has to be at right angle to the drain. The Double Telescopic Guide Arm was developed in 2019 at the factory in Holland and allows you to work both sides of the dyke from one headland. High-tech options, such as having all hydraulic functions and water on and off through remote wireless control in the palm of your hand, makes setting up to the drain out fall easy, and a truly one-man operation. Automation of the 4wd system has dynamic programmable drain length in the palm of your hand and includes the only drain-jetter on the market with automatic repeat system (ARS), which gives the same effect of rodding with draining rods in the drain, but automatically through hydraulics. Once the nozzle hits an obstruction, the reel is automatically rewound to a pre-set distance, say 5m, then tries again.

This continues until it gets through the obstruction. Once the electronic counter has reached the pre-set length of drain it rewinds automatically, and this is when drain pipe cleaning occurs; a cone shape of water moving in reverse cleans the walls of the pipe and pulls dirt out. Various types of nozzles have been developed based on feedback from customers in the field. The Rocket is a pointed sand and root nozzle with two stages, the first part blasts forward with single hole, then with three facing back cuts into the sand/silt. The second stage has six rear-facing holes which clears this shifted sand/silt whilst being pulled back. Using the same nozzle, fibrous roots can be cut with the fine high-pressure jets and cleared at the same time. The company even has a nozzle that sends water at 90 degrees to the wall of the pipe – very useful where modern drains have been wrapped in a filter medium and been found to clog up. Watch drain-jetters in action at and pre-order for the coming season to avoid disappointment. FG Hall 6, Stand 6.714

Round-up of machines eligible for new equipment and tech grants The long-awaited Farming Equipment and Technology grants are finally here, so we spoke to Ben Willcox from Shropshire-based Mastek Engineering for an overview of the company’s range of machinery, which is available for grant funding. Mastek offers a complete range of dribble bars and trailing shoe applicators to fit tankers of all makes and sizes,” Ben commented. “As a company we have spent many years supplying low emission spreading machines and are confident we can fit machines to every make of tanker. “We have seen a surge of enquiries since the grants launched from farmers and contractors with many enquiries leaning towards trailing shoe applicators because of additional funding allocated on trailing shoes. We like to remind customers that although there is more funding available on the trailing shoe, it is a more expensive machine. Farmers and contractors need to ensure they are buying the right machine for the right reasons.” Mastek’s biggest seller remains the 7.5m Professional Universal Dribble Bar weighing in at only 450kg. The machine simply replaces the slurry tanker’s existing door, meaning fitting is quick and simple. It features

sprung break away and stone trap as standard. This machine is very popular on tankers from 1,300–3,000 gallons. On the trailing shoe side, Mastek offers a 7.5m Micro Trailing Shoe. This machine is fixed to the tanker using fixed brackets and features a clever sequencing valve which unfolds the arms then tilts them to the ground, all on the same hydraulic circuit. Finally, the company offers a Hybrid Dribble Bar which can feature 3- or 4-point linkage or can be bolted to the chassis of any suitable tanker. This machine is available in widths of 10 or 12m and features hydraulic accumulator break away and a junction box on the rear to allow for easy filling. Mastek fits its own award winning ‘SuperCut’ and ‘Micro SuperCut’ macerators to its range of dribble bars and trailing shoes, which are designed to handle long fibre and debris by using six unique V-shaped cutting discs to shear long fibre and plastic.

Own the best... be the best

01405 862240 Automation boosts efficiency A farmer who took the leap of faith to go automated has urged others to follow in his footsteps after seeing efficiency and turnover on his 300-acre farm transformed. Daniel Edwards says he had grown tired of being let down by labourers, so chose equipment made by Cambridgeshire-based company Agrimech to use in his potato picking and packing business in Huntingdon, and the impact was instant and clear for all to see. “We used to use agency staff, who were often quite unreliable, so we decided to go fully automated, and it’s worked wonders,” he explains. “We need fewer people, which is a saving straight off, and it’s almost doubled our output because it’s so much more efficient

than before. Daniel has three pieces of Agrimech kit and says the reliability of equipment and, when needed, the customer support backed up his decision to become a customer. “The back-up is great – they’re always at the end of the phone and really know their stuff, so if it’s something that you can resolve on your own, you know they’ll talk you through it, and if they need to come out, you know the problem will always be fixed,” he comments. “As a company, you really can’t fault Agrimech. The build quality of the machines is excellent, the support is superb, and they help us run more efficiently. Money spent with Agrimech is most definitely money well spent.” FG Hall 8, Stand 8.430

The Bunning Lowlander 150 HY HBD.

Irrigation supply solutions

Extra technology added to popular models A brace of new in-cab screen options, along with an app allowing the loader driver to monitor the weight of the spreader contents, will be shown by Bunning on its stand at Lamma ‘22. The Norfolk-based manufacturer will add the Topcon XD and XD+ Isobus screens as options on its spreaders, which will allow users running non-Isobus compatible tractors to achieve increased functionality when using a Bunning spreader. Alongside this, users operating an Isobus weigh cell system have the option for the loader driver to view the real-time weight of the spreader contents via the Topcon ‘Cab Control’ app on a smartphone or tablet. The upshot is there is no need

for the loader operator to stop loading to check the weight of the material in the spreader. Using the device should virtually eliminate overloading and it can also be used for weighing varying product quantities. The Bunning stand will also feature a redesigned Lowlander 120 HY TVA (Twin Vertical Augers), with a new curved bottom spreader deck to limit material build-up behind the augers and ensure all the material is forced onto the large diameter bottom blades. Along with the Lowlander 120 HY TVA, there will be two other muck spreaders on the Bunning stand at Lamma; a Lowlander 150 HY HBD and a 105 Compact TVA. FG Hall 6 Stand 6.730

Supply chain shortages have seldom been out of the news since the Covid crisis began, and farming has been widely affected. But farmers visiting Briggs Irrigation’s stand at Lamma should not have to worry about supplies of irrigation and water management equipment, according to managing director Adrian Colwill, who commented: “We manufacture irrigation booms and RotoRainers for dirty water at our factory in Corby. Hosereels are imported, as are components that cannot be sourced in the UK.

Preview Positivity leading to bale handling enquiries

Lamma 2022 sees UK show debut of new Folding Push Off Buckrake Developed over the last 18 months, Albutt says the new Buckrake combines the best features of a push off fork and folding fork into one hybrid attachment; designed to minimise pit delays and maximise loading productivity. Closing down to 9ft 9in for road transport, the new fork opens up to 14ft, ideal for keeping pace with the largest foragers. The way the gate operates was the biggest design challenge for Albutt, and where the new fork excels for pit operators. Microswitches strategically located prevent the gate from opening if the wings are closed. Not only does this avoid impact but it means only one hydraulic service is required to operate the fork. The

gate and folding mechanism can be switched between effortlessly with a supplied changeover switch in the cab. For users, this means the gate and folding operations can be changed instantly, rather than having to go through a sequence; perfect for rolling clamp sides. Another challenge was to ensure the gate operated across the full width of the 14ft fork when open. An easy option would have been to have the Buckrake arms protrude through the gate, but this would have reduced capacity. Instead, the team designed a unique Z-type linkage system, giving unrivalled strength and pushing power, whilst not compromising on the gate’s structure. FG Hall 6 Stand 6.940

Arcusin says that this year many of its customers collected a good volume of bales during the 2021 harvest for their straw and hay businesses. Added to which, they’re experiencing very good autumn weather for establishing crops for next harvest, meaning that some positivity has now returned to the industry. With the next season already in many customers’ minds, many are now enquiring about bale handling machinery for next season. Arcusin offer two machine models for collecting any size of big square bales – the Arcusin Autostack XP54T and the Arcusin Autostack FSX63-72. The main differences between these models are the stacking heights achieved by each machine. The XP54T stacks to 5.4m high and the FSX model will stack to 7.2m as the maximum. The collection of the bales on both models is similar. Bales are collected on their strings and inverted on the machine by 180 degrees at the point of unloading the bales into the stack. Both models offer a pneumatic (air) braking system as standard equipment. The

XP54T has leaf spring suspension and a trailing steering axle as standard equipment. The FSX63-72 model offers hydraulic suspension and an extending front platform from 6.3–7.2m as standard equipment. The extending front platform is integrated into the automatic loading process. Both machines have the Arcusin automatic loading process for the bales and provide its customers with a fast field clearance solution operated by just one person and one tractor.

Preview New unit allows farmers to build their own tine drill JJ Metcalfe and Son Ltd has designed a Direct Drilling Assembly unit for people who want to build their own tine drill, or adapt an existing drill, and take the first steps into regenerative agriculture. The bracket fits onto an 80mm box section, a selection of drill tip lengths can be added to make the optimum drilling height and a variety of tubes are available to suit an individual’s requirement. The coulter moves very little soil as the tungsten tip is only 12mm wide, and, where possible, the seed tube is used out of the ground. With minimum soil movement, the soil structure is preserved; more carbon is retained in the soil, so facilitating improvements in soil biology, more available nutrients and increase in the worm population. Direct drilling means lower labour costs, less wear on machinery and reduced fuel costs so with this

adaption you can make your own trouble free, low maintenance drill, JJ Metcalfe reckons. For more information on JJ Metcalfe and Son’s Box Bracket Assembly, contact the company directly or visit the website: FG Hall 17 Stand 17.570

Minimising the disruption caused by wind farms At the time of writing, the UN Climate Change Conference (COP26) has recently finished and green energy is very much on the agenda. More offshore wind farms are being proposed across the country and most of these farms will need an onshore electrical connection to take the generated electricity onto the national grid. These onshore connections can be a disruption to farming operations and therefore remedial drainage advice needs to be considered as part of the preceding negotiations. Remedial drainage is recommended in areas that are likely to contain existing land drains, or drainage systems and/or where the soil has a clay content. The works will generally involve the installation of between one and four land drains complete with permeable backfill, running parallel with the working strip boundary. In areas where the major fall on the land is along the cable route stone drains may also be proposed across the working strip. Where there is no natural outfall

for the land drains within the cable route, off-easement drainage will be required to take the drain to a suitable outfall. Miles Drainage (20) Ltd provides a full design and installation service for all types of remedial drainage requirements and offers extensive experience on major cross country utility projects. Agricultural farm drainage remains a key part of Miles Drainage’s business – offering a quality GPS-based design, installation and maintenance service for all types of farm land, as well as the installation of water supplies and irrigation mains.

New front loader generation launches at Lamma Austrian company Hauer is presenting its new professional loader at Lamma 2022. Stand-out features of this second generation XB Bionic II are the new styling, a reduced weight and excellent view to attachments – as well as new optional extras which include automatic lubrication. The brand name XB Bionic stands for the unique and patented Hauer X-kinematics, and the integration of tipping cylinders and mechanical parallel control elements inside the boom for full protection of all working elements and fast and easy cleaning. Developed and manufactured in Austria and based on five years of collective experience by the

large number of Hauer Service and Premium Partners, the well-proven loader is further optimised for professional use on 50–400hp tractors. Hauer reduced the weight of the boom by using high-quality materials and significantly improved visibility to the quick-coupling carriage – excellent for compact tractors and lightweight highland tractors. The cross beam has been relocated to provide an excellent view of the pallet fork, Hauer says. A mid-mounted camera is available to ensure great visibility on high horsepower tractors. Furthermore, boom-mounted LED lights illuminate the dark areas. For professional users and highperformance applications, Hauer also offers ex-factory automatic lubrication for all pivot points which are supplied by an auto-operated piston pump on the front loader, saving time and lubricant. For information visit www. or a Hauer Service and Premium Partner. FG Hall 19 Stand 19.630

Water: We really need to look after it You may ask: “Why do we need to look after water? Isn’t 70% of the earth made up of water?” Yes, but 97.5% of that are the oceans. A further 1.75% is frozen in the poles, glaciers or permafrost. This leaves 0.75% to rely on for all our needs. This 0.75% is six times more in demand than a century ago, and expected to increase by another 20–50% by 2050. We are running out of good water, and it costs more and more per litre to produce a useable standard. Add the fact that rainfall is more erratic and weather is becoming more extreme – who can forget the summer of 2018 and the floods that came before? Even just looking at our most recent summer and the ever-increasing variation and extremes in rainfall, it all points

to the fact that we need to manage our resources, and especially water, better. Rainwater is free and when collecting and storing it, the benefits are immediate, e.g., with average rainfall of 25in, roof area of 15,000ft2 you can collect 900,000 litres of water through the year. Storing and using as you need is the real benefit here. Corrugated steel tanks are the ideal solution for storage of large volume rainwater, so talk to your agent or to RNT Tanks & Silos to discuss the best solution for your needs.

New innovations in liquid manure tech Vogelsang GmbH & Co. KG is launching a press screw separator alongside other innovations for efficient liquid manure management. Vogelsang managing director Harald Vogelsang explains: “To remain cost-effective despite the significant degree of regulation, our customers are increasingly relying on economical use of valuable liquid manure, including optimal nutrient placement. With this goal in mind, we are constantly developing our portfolio [...].” The XSplit press screw separator allows farmers and biogas plant operators to optimally separate liquid manure and digestate for

spreading and further use. The drive is located at the solids outlet rather than at the inflow of the raw medium, so liquid cannot get into the drive and a shaft seal is no longer necessary, reducing maintenance effort and costs. The QuickService concept enables direct access to the screen and screw press. A high-quality elastomer sealing disc, against which the screw works in the separation area, ensures reliable plug formation, without

extra aid and with almost zero initial leakage. The separator achieves a dry matter content in the solid fraction of up to 40%. The newly-developed ExaCut ECC is the first precision distributor that does not require air suction and ventilation hoses, yet boasts impressively high distribution accuracy. The innovative rotor concept ensures that liquid manure is fed into the hose outlets evenly. Where formerly some liquid manure escaped from the air suction, this can no longer happen – particularly important when cultivating grassland with slot equipment. So, farmers and contractors use the valuable material manure precisely and ensure optimised feed hygiene. The UniSpread universal linkage is now also available in a working width of 10.5m. The automatic end-arm folding feature ensures an optimal maximum transport width of 2.5m as well as ideal transport height dimensions. It is the compact retrofit solution, even for small liquid manure tankers, and can be equipped with either dribble bar or trailing shoe technology. Available working widths are between 6–10.5m. The BlackBird trailing shoe linkage in working widths of 21

and 24m is now equipped with a simplified control, which facilitates connection to a new tanker, ensuring smooth communication between the tanker and spreading equipment. The SyreN system, which stabilises the liquid manure during field spreading, has also been given a new look and safety upgrades. SyreN allows for optimal nutrient use and reduces ammonia emissions by up to 70%. Further innovations include: PowerFill Small – The compact filling aid for vacuum systemequipped tankers is available in two drive versions; the more powerful version achieves volume flow of up to 12,000 litres/min, reducing filling times for liquid manure tankers by up to 30%. ProCap T progressive cavity pump – This features a remarkably compact design with large free passage, making it low-wear and durable. Flow Performance Monitor (FPM) sowing technology – Sensor technology monitors the free flow of seed and mineral fertiliser flows on pneumatic seed drills. Blockages are reported directly and reliably on the display in the cab and the FPM is resistant to wear, corrosion and foreign bodies. FG Hall 12 Stand 12.230

Preview New unique self-loading system for 1t loaders Spread-a-Bale will launch a compact self-loading straw spreading machine suited to 1t loaders for 500kg rectangular bales at the Lamma 2022 show. Called the Lite, the 650kg machine combines a new unique loading system with the ability to spread straw up to 12m and generate minimal dust. Two new unique features have been added to the conventional design. The rear panel and one side panel have been

removed to reduce weight, while four bale hooks grab and facilitate loading the bale. To load straight from the stack, the Lite tips through 90 degrees, the four bale hooks engage with the bale, after which the machine is returned to its normal horizontal position ready for spreading. The Lite is powered by Spread-aBale’s unique hydraulic manifold. No electric controls are required. Only one materials handler is required to operate. The company’s Michael Hughes says the patent-protected Lite will be of particular interest to livestock farmers with smaller lift capacity loaders. “The single horizontal rotor enables straw to be thrown longer distances in a linear spread pattern, whilst farmers will be able to make savings of up to 75% reduction in spreading time and labour requirements. Equally important, they will be able to make significant straw savings of approximately 40% along with minimal dust generation.” The Lite is available from Spreada-Bale’s UK and international dealer network. FG Hall 20 Stand 20.390

On-farm value-added processes pay dividends Three years ago, McArthur Agriculture introduced the first grain processing equipment made by Czech manufacturer JK Machinery into the British and Irish market. Sales director Scott McArthur says the response has been incredible thanks to the build quality, “outstanding value” and application knowledge. There are over 50 units in the UK, processing a wide range of crops including einkorn, hemp and teff. Trends suggest the machinery is often bought as part of a farm-based, value-added process. “Normally these projects are a diversification from the day job for our customers and it has been fascinating to be able to support these ventures,” says Scott. Another trend is for processing

farm saved seed, particularly from direct drillers; they are carefully selecting the best crops to plant the following year. “This isn’t cutting corners, this is cutting costs,” explains Lancashire farmer Andrew Webster. “By avoiding trams and headlands we save the best grains for cleaning and testing before re-sowing. With careful management we have achieved great results.” A vibrating sieve cleaner such as the VibroCompact range is perfect for small batch seed cleaning. The JCC 08 (pictured) is the largest in this range and has a pre-clean output of 15t/ hr and a fine clean output of 5t/ hr. It is compact, easy to operate and offers a compelling return on investment, McArthur reckons. FG Hall 8 Stand 8.440

Preview ProStraw Systems and Parkland at Lamma in 2019.

Getting the show back on the road The return of Lamma is being widely welcomed, say ProStraw Systems. Along with many in the agricultural industry, being unable to attend the big trade shows like Lamma over the past couple of years has been a huge loss. It’s been a frustrating time for business owners who’ve been largely unable to showcase their machinery, innovations and technologies to potential customers in any great

numbers. Product developments and new launches have not necessarily received the wider audiences they ordinarily would. So, it’s with a great sense of relief that agriculture businesses have the opportunity to become customerfacing once more at one of the industry’s flag-ship events.

For Suffolk-based farmers Paddy and Will Reed, developers of the ProStraw Systems stack cover sheet, a return to Lamma is something they are relishing. Placing their business in the heart of the UK’s leading farm machinery show is invaluable, particularly after the events of the last two years. One of the innovations

they were planning on launching at last year’s twice-cancelled Lamma show is a new hydraulic draw bar designed specifically for the Parkland Bale Accumulator. Available as an optional extra for both new and used machines, it’s most suited to balers with longer chambers. Utilising the baler’s tailgate hydraulics allows the machine’s driver the flexibility to quickly switch the accumulator between being a fixed or trailed implement. The bar is extended during transportation, aiding manoeuvrability and eliminating tail-swing. Once in the field, the bar can be retracted allowing the accumulator to be coupled to the baler, and fixed in to place with pins. With the constant advances in machinery and technology, industry events like Lamma are important in providing farmers with a social occasion to catch-up with friends, colleagues and industry peers, as well as being able to get hands-on with the latest bits of kit. You can visit ProStraw Systems and Parkland Bale Accumulators at Birmingham’s NEC on 11th and 12th January. FG Hall 18 Stand 18.730

First-of-its-kind ecological netwrap and baler twine Tama has taken a decisive step in its long-term plan to reduce the environmental impact of baling. The new Tama Cycle Netwrap and Twine are manufactured with a significant proportion of recycled and reused raw materials without any loss in product performance, the company reckons. “Tama is now the market-leading manufacturer, but we grew out of a collective of farmers and have retained our connection to the land,” says global sales director Bart Cope. “Changing to more sustainable manufacturing methods will protect the land, so future generations of farmers can grow the food we all depend on. “Our products already contain the least plastic per tonne of crop baled and help farmers be more efficient by minimising breakages and downtime during harvest. The next step is more ambitious, we want to lead the industry in making changes throughout the product life cycle.” Over the years, Tama has already reduced and reused waste from its own

manufacturing operations and looked at every stage of plastic production to develop more sustainable netwraps and twines. The Tama Cycle range is a step forward as it uses significantly higher percentages of post-industrial waste from Tama’s production and from other industries to improve the environmental footprint. In Tama Cycle Twine, the company has taken on another challenge by collecting used twine from farmers and reincorporating it into the production process. This is an important first step in creating a circular resource loop for crop baling products which collects and reuses

spent materials. The ambition is for greatly increased collection and use of waste materials in the near future. For several years, Tama has championed the development of collection schemes which are now able to supply large volumes of materials. To help close the cycle, Tama also supports research to develop high-value secondary markets for these materials in their own operations and other sectors of the economy. Reliability and performance are the fundamental reason farmers choose Tama. While developing the Tama Cycle range, it has always been the first priority to sacrifice nothing with respect to performance.

“Using recycled raw materials and maintaining product quality was a challenge, but we all worked hard to overcome it,” says Mr Cope. “To bring about the changes in the industry we wish to see, it is essential that our crop baling products lead the way with respect to quality.” FG Hall 18 Stand 18.742

Drainage investment gathers pace As periods of severe wet weather have increased in recent years, the importance of ditch systems and land drains are in the spotlight, explains Will Mitchell, contracts manager at land drainage specialist, William Morfoot Ltd. The autumn and winter seasons of 2019 and 2020 respectively resulted in much of the countryside sitting underwater for many weeks at a time. Fields were impassable and crops submerged beneath the water, resulting in widespread damage to the crops – many of which subsequently failed.

explains Mr Mitchell. “These older schemes have now been in service for 50 years plus in many instances. Some of these schemes are still shifting a lot of water but a great number of the schemes are now sadly no longer fit for purpose. We are finding that many of the old clay systems have

Rarely has there been a period where the role of ditch systems and land drains has been more in the spotlight. “One of the noteworthy outcomes to this period was the fact that the persistent wet weather exposed many weak and nonfunctional land drainage systems,”

got multiple breaks in the pipework and furthermore, they do not have sufficient gravel present over the pipes to actively shift water down to the drains from the surface in a timely way.” Mr Mitchell continues: “With commodity prices being high the opportunity cost of failing to crop significant areas of fields is a real and significant sum of money. Many growers have got excellent data showing the transformation in yield potential that land drainage investment can provide and with this in mind, the decision to invest in drainage becomes something of an obvious route to follow.” William Morfoot Ltd delivers comprehensive land drainage schemes, including all design work and installation work to farm businesses across the UK. Works include design and surveying, land drain installation, ditch maintenance/ improvement and wider drainage infrastructure improvements. The company is exhibiting at Lamma Show at the NEC on 11th and 12th January. To find out more, visit the team at the show, get in touch directly, or visit the company’s website.

Preview New camera system ‘an essential safety aid’ Transport-related injuries, including overturning vehicles or being struck by moving vehicles, are still an unfortunate occurrence in agriculture. With this in mind, Trailer Vision has launched a brand-new camera system, the Digi-Max3, which it describes as the ‘new essential safety aid in farming’. Digi-Max3 is a significantly improved version of the original, highly popular Digi-Max system. The third-generation digital wireless (DW) camera/reversing camera system, features the very latest technology, with improved resolution (AHD) and semi-automatic pairing (from the monitor only).

Trailer Vision says the system includes everything you will need to operate a wireless camera/ reversing camera system with a tractor/trailer or any self-propelled machinery. Because the system is DW, it can be used at the same time as Bluetooth devices, or wireless networks, interference free. Improving on Trailer Vision’s previous agricultural camera system offering Agri-Vue (which could be utilised with up to two cameras), the Digi-Max3’s colour LCD monitor can be used with up to four cameras, including a reversing camera. Cameras include IR/night vision and a microphone. The monitor can also show the images from multiple cameras at the same time (split screen/ quad view etc.), as well as manual camera selection.

Tractor cab storage solution makes its debut North Yorkshire manufacturer and machinery dealer JF Hudson Ltd has built a new range of Compact Front Boxes to overcome the lack of storage in tractor cabs. Making its UK debut at Lamma ’22, the box attaches to the tractor’s front linkage when the arms are folded up and can store a variety of essentials, e.g., grease guns, baler string, fuel, oil, water and seed. Operator safety was a key factor in the design. The front linkage when folded-up ensures the box stays as close to the tractor as possible so it doesn’t obscure vision. Stowing contents away also removes the danger of flying objects if a tractor rolls over. The box also sits higher than the lowest part of the tractor but lower than the

lights to ensure it doesn’t catch on anything. Boxes are available for any front tractor linkage in a range of sizes (from a 685–1,250mm wide toolbox) and can be painted to suit the manufacturer’s colours. Four finishes are available and a specific model can carry both bale twine and net. Boxes can be upgraded to include LED lights, steel locks, a spill box, water tank and soap dispenser among other choices. Optional extras include: laser-cut nameplate/ logo, or an accompanying wheelbraked trolley for easy attachment, removal and storage of boxes.

Changing times: A view from a dealer We spoke to T H White director David Rapkins about his transition from agricultural manufacturing to a dealership, and got his thoughts on key challenges facing the sector. Having grown up around farming, David started his career at a dealer, before progressing to global product management at CNHi, and coming full circle when he joined T H White in 2019. After eight years in global positions, David said he “really missed actually touching the product and interacting frequently with the customer”. The transition has brought manufacturer knowledge to the dealership but also enabled him to

channel staff and consumer feedback to the manufacturer. “In the dealer world, we’ve got a lot of staff who operate farms and have interests in agriculture outside of work, so they know very much what the customer needs from a product specification.” As T H White celebrates its 190th birthday in 2022, David reflected on the company’s evolution from an agricultural ironmonger in 1832, to an engineering services group.

The business has grown in size, as well as opening different divisions; equipment is now available for multiple sectors from agriculture to groundcare, construction to dairy, with fully equipped parts departments and country stores. It has a dedicated precision farming team to ensure customers get the most out of their machines, and an in-house finance offering. It is a dealership with specialist staff in equipment sales, service and parts – able to recommend the most appropriate machinery and technologies to improve efficiencies in many specific applications. Manufacturer-trained specialists are onhand to advise on features and benefits, and provide exceptional service to look after machines for their lifetime. This knowledge hub ensures customers get the best from their purchases and trust the company to look after their interests. David wants to continue growing the company’s geographical presence, so it can leverage economies of scale, and enhance its offering with further brands. Alternative fuels are something the company wants to stay ahead of. “Electrification is definitely coming into our industry. Alternative fuels like methane are exciting and we’ll need to embrace that.”

Former managing director Dick Salm on with a Fordson Major in 1953.

Difficulty recruiting such specialist knowledge is an industry-wide challenge and T H White is taking a number of proactive steps to retain existing engineers and technicians, including incentives, rewards and training to ensure staff feel valued. Machinery supply due to lack of components is another significant problem in a business arena affected by both Brexit and the pandemic. “We’re having to be smarter, order more and be braver in orders to make sure we’ve got stock in the pipeline next year.” Used machinery is becoming more desirable and T H White has a good supply of quality used equipment available at To celebrate its 190th anniversary, T H White will host a staff family day at Rainscombe Country Show on 11–12th June 2022, including a vintage machinery display.

Recovering vehicle odometer readings For as long as fuel management systems have existed, fleet operators have wanted to know not just how much fuel they are putting into vehicles but also what the performance figures for each vehicle are. This is vital to assess how efficiently fuel is used and to test and measure the impact of efforts to reduce overall vehicle costs. Whilst a quality fuel management system will accurately show how much fuel has been deposited in the vehicle, capturing information on the distance the vehicle has travelled is much harder without error. Traditionally it has been the responsibility of the person, usually the driver, to record and manually enter the vehicle odometer entry. This will naturally lead to incorrect results, whether they were entered intentionally or by accident. Merridale has introduced various measures to remedy these errors over the years, in three distinct ways: Manual entry using Merridale’s ‘iProve’ verification: This is based upon the fueller manually entering an odometer record that is validated and checked to ensure that the value entered is plausible. Merridale’s iProve (Individual Programmable Odometer Verification) permits fleet operators to set and adjust a distance value for every vehicle across the fleet individually. Some early systems from some of Merridale’s competitors allowed any value to be entered without verification. Drivers quickly became aware of this, and deliberate false readings were often entered to deceive the system. Merridale’s system prevents this with a blocking system. Data capture from vehicle management systems: As technology and engine management systems advanced, it was found that it could be possible for odometer information captured by these systems to be transferred to the fuel management system. It’s also possible to measure distance travelled by the vehicle by having a readout from either hubometers or axles. Several methods of extracting and transmitting this information to the fuel management system have been developed by various companies, including transmitting data via modified nozzles using local proximity connection or by infra-red pairing, plugin cable connection between vehicle and fuel management, and manual transfer of data using a portable data capture device. The transponder system developed by Merridale transfers data wirelessly, avoiding the need for extensive pump nozzle and tank filler modification or the potential for deliberate miscapture

that can be associated with handheld transfer devices. Data capture from third party systems already fitted to the vehicle: Merridale discovered that if the third-party data capture system offered customers access to odometer information, in many instances Merridale’s system could

record accurately how much fuel was put in the vehicle tanks and match this to odometer records. Providing that the third-party odometer readings were accurate, the figures generated would be far more accurate than when using systems that record fuel usage information using an algorithm of

engine management. The Merridale system differed in that it looked at exactly how much fuel was placed in the vehicle. Most existing Merridale systems can be upgraded to incorporate any of these methods without the need for replacement. Contact the company directly for more information. FG

News Step 5: Sign the contract Once you have accurate data, evidence of your carbon and biodiversity actions and a forward plan, you can begin preparing contractual arrangements with Trinity NCM. There are different contract terms depending on whether you are the farm owner or tenant, whether you are forward contracting or spot trading. Learn to love your data – transactions in natural capital markets are likely to be digital, so time spent getting your records aligned is time well spent.

Seven steps to generating income from your natural capital Carbon credits and biodiversity tokens provide farmers with potentially significant new income streams, but how do they work? Louisa Knocker, senior manager at Trinity Natural Capital Markets, explains. The world has set ambitious climate change targets. Farming, with its large capacity to sequester carbon in biomass and soils, is well placed to provide solutions. Markets are now opening, offering good prices for the high-quality carbon credits and biodiversity tokens farmers can provide. What’s crucial, though, is a system that keeps you in control, in terms of how you generate your credits and retain complete ownership of the valuable data you have. That’ll ensure you have access to the widest possible demand in the natural capital market, and don’t sell out to a deal you later regret. The following steps explain how:

Step 1: Eligibility Firstly, learn to love your farm data and digitise it. If you keep records in Gatekeeper or Muddy Boots, the data can feed straight into Sandy. This is a digital assistant that accurately measures the environmental performance of natural capital on your farm – that’s mainly carbon, biodiversity, and water protection. To be eligible to generate carbon credits, you have to reduce your carbon footprint through practices additional to what would have happened without the carbon market. You don’t need to be at net zero to get started.

Step 2: Set the farm baseline The key is to be able to measure, manage and

provide digital evidence of your starting point. This baseline summarises exactly where your current farm practices have placed you on annual emissions – any reductions from this starting point will generate credits. Historical management information is important to determine your baseline and Sandy ensures your reporting is realistic and credible.

Step 3: Explore and schedule practices Consider the choices you have to improve on your current carbon and biodiversity metrics and develop a plan going forward. You can, for example, set a target to reach net zero in a given timeframe. You decide what actions you want to take, such as reduced cultivations. Sandy recommends the optimal path for your enterprise and you can compare the cost, efficiency and yield from the proposed practices over a certain number of years and see the impact on cashflow.

Step 6: Implement and verify practices Once the contract is agreed, you can begin to implement the practices you planned within the timescales you chose. A carbon footprint is carried out each year to continue measuring your net carbon balance and confirm the carbon credits are being generated. Third party auditors will look at your evidence, then verify and confirm your credits.

Step 7: Get rewarded There are three ways to sell your carbon credits: • Sell on the open NCM marketplace by setting a minimum price and wait for bids to come in. • Sell to corporate investors, a pre-qualified buyer, who tend to set the price and criteria themselves. • Sell or barter the credits with businesses you already have a relationship with such as processors, retailers or other land managers. Trinity NCM launched in October, and will open for commercial transactions following a piloting period on 11th Jan 2022. To find out more, why not attend a Natural Capital webinar? FG

Step 4: Check the results Commit to your chosen plan and begin measuring it consistently over time – you can see what it would achieve for your carbon credits. You may be able to increase the value of carbon credits through co-benefits, which recognise biodiversity (wildlife or nature) gains or water protection work on your land.

Natural capital markets offer the opportunity for a new income stream to reward your environmental achievements.

Ground protection and traction solutions demonstrated A European tour of tyre and track solutions from Michelin visited the UK during November, providing an opportunity for dealers and customers to learn about the latest products and how to get the best from them. David Williams was there. The demonstration, on a farm near Cambridge, included Michelin IF and VF tyres fitted to New Holland tractors as well as Camso tracks on a New Holland T8 SmartTrax. There was also a smaller New Holland T5 tractor with a Camso half-track system which is available as an option now in parts of Europe.

Worth the extra? Opting for premium tyres featuring the latest technology is increasingly seen by farmers and contractors as an investment rather than a cost, with benefits including reduced compaction and ground damage, increased traction, and a long working life. Many dealer open days and working demonstrations feature representatives from major tyre manufacturers available to offer advice and guidance on the most suitable tyres for a task. As well as providing information for users, the Michelin event backed up the advice by demonstrating improvements in performance by adopting best practice.

Standard, IF and VF VF or Very High Flexion tyres operate at 20% less pressure, or carry 20% more load at the same inflation pressure, than IF (Improved Flexion) tyres. IF tyres operate at 20% less pressure or carry 20% more load at the same pressure as standard radial tyres, so there is a significant theoretical advantage to specifying IF or VF tyres for arable field operations as the load can be spread over a larger surface area.

Head-to-head test Two identical New Holland T7-270 HD tractors were used for the test – both with rear tyres of the maximum 1.95m diameter recommended by the manufacturer. One was on VF 710/60R42 rear, and VF 600/60R30 fronts from Michelin’s AxioBib 2 series and had a PTG Central Tyre Inflation System (CTIS). Air was supplied from the tractor’s air

brake compressor and Isobus control allowed tyre pressure setting and adjustment from the cab. The second tractor had 650/65R42 rear, and 540/65R30 front MultiBib standard radial tyres. The two tractors were ballasted so that the weight distribution was 4,560kg on the front axle and 7,800kg on the rear, resulting in a 37%/63% split. Michelin said this corresponded to a typical field situation.

Benefits of CTIS For the first test the tractor with VF tyres and the CTIS was linked by a cable from its drawbar to the front of a New Holland T8 SmartTrax with a rear cultivator (see header pic). The T8 acted as a brake tractor to ensure a constant load was applied and maintained. The T7 wheels were set to run slightly faster to increase the tractive effort, ensuring that even as changing ground conditions affected the draft needed to pull the cultivator, the tractive effort remained constant. A drawbar sensor measured the tractive effort produced by the lead tractor which was applied to the second tractor through the cable. An external screen displayed the tractive effort in kg.

Pressure vs traction For the test – the T8 brake tractor was set to travel at 3.6kph and the tractor being tested was set to travel at 4.6kph. Although VF tyres can operate at high travel speeds at relatively low pressures for limited periods, for frequent road work or longer journeys increasing the inflation pressure reduces rolling resistance, extends the working life and optimises ride quality. For the first run, the tyres were set at road pressures of 1.1 bar at the front, and 1.0 bar at the rear. For the second run, recommended pressures for field work were set – 0.7 bar at the rear and 0.6 bar at the front. Pressures were reduced from the cab through the CTIS system just by touching the display.

Theory is fine – but a demonstration by Michelin proved benefits of higher specification tyres operated at the correct pressures.

Results The first run at road pressures achieved an average 6,800kg tractive effort. The second run, at lower field pressures, achieved 8,000kg. This revealed that operating the VF tyres at the lower pressures recommended for field work through the CTIS helps improve traction by 17%. Michelin suggests there are two ways to interpret the benefit: At the same tractive effort, a tractor with UltraFlex VF tyres and CTIS will slip less and consume less fuel compared to standard technology tyres. At the same slippage rate, the tractor with UltraFlex VF tyres could pull wider implements than a tractor with standard technology tyres, resulting in improved work rates and productivity. 1,000kg of tractive effort is approximately equivalent to an extra metre of implement width, so time could be saved using a tool 1–2m wider which would also reduce soil damage through fewer wheelings. Michelin said that the bulldozing effect and increased rolling resistance due to creating a 10cm rut is similar to constantly climbing a 10% slope, so fuel savings through reduced rutting are significant. For those currently using standard tyres who rarely travel on the road, upgrading to Michelin UltraFlex VF tyres would offer the benefits of the configuration used for the second test. Therefore, when replacing tyres, the additional productivity is worth bearing in mind. For farms and contractors alternating between field and road work then investing in CTIS will quickly provide returns due to increased productivity, fuel savings and tyre life. For users spending most of their time on the road, then road tyres operating at higher pressures such as the RoadBib might be a better option.

Second test – alternative tyres The second test used both T7 tractors – one with the previous VF tyres and the other with 650/65R42 rear, and 540/65R30 front MultiBib continued over…

Rubber tracks

For the second demonstration, two similar tractors with different tyres and pressures were attached by cables running through a pulley to the brake tractor. The relative positions of the two lead tractors were monitored, and the one with VF tyres at field pressures clearly gained an advantage over the machine on standard tyres. …from previous page

standard technology tyres. Michelin used this configuration to demonstrate performance with typical tyres chosen by UK farmers for a 200hp tractor, and to show why the tyres are less suitable for the larger T7 with 240hp, compared to the VF alternative. The tractors were set up with identical weight distribution – 4,560kg at the front and 7,800kg at the rear. The T8 SmartTrax was used again to provide a constant load. A cable was passed through a pulley connection at the front of the T8, and the cable ends were attached to the drawbars of the two T7 tractors which were positioned side by side in front of the T8. The two T7s were set to maintain identical wheel speeds, and the objective was to provide a visual indication of the extra tractive effort produced by VF tyres by monitoring the relative positions of the two leading tractors as the brake tractor travelled a set distance. The VF AxioBib 2 tyres were inflated to field operating pressures of 0.7 bar at the rear and 0.6 bar at the front. The standard MultiBib tyres were inflated to pressures typically selected by UK farmers – 1.6 bar (23psi) front and rear. The demonstration made it immediately obvious that the tractor with VF tyres had more pulling power, as the T7 on standard tyres fell further behind. This resulted from the VF tyres’ larger footprint and additional traction.

Soil protection The demonstration also highlighted the difference in footprint between the standard MultiBib tyre, the AxioBib 2 VF tyres at road pressures, and the AxioBib 2 VF tyres set at field pressures.

The standard tyres were again set at 1.6 bar, and the VF 710/60R42 AxioBib 2 were set first at higher 1.1 bar pressures for road work, then at 0.7 bar for field work. With a load on each tyre of 3,900kg the tractors were driven on to a sand pit and stopped. Powder was spread around the carcase and treads. When the tractor was moved off the sand, then the area highlighted by the light powder showed where the tyre rubber had not made contact with the ground.

Track manufacturer Camso is owned by Michelin, and the Michelin European tour was an ideal opportunity to display the Camso CTS half-track system fitted to a New Holland T5. For tractors of 90–150hp and covering the 4-cyl and small 6-cyl market segment, the bolt-on track units can be fitted to existing tractors and are also available as an approved New Holland option. The power rating means pressed steel wheels and steel idler and mid rollers are used rather than heavier cast versions. The T5 UTL SmartTrax has an overall width between 1.5–2.0m depending on the width of tracks specified, which are available in 300, 340 and 450mm widths. The track assemblies pivot up to 25 degrees forwards and back allowing maximum ground contact to be maintained. Maintenance is minimal with only four grease nipples requiring attention every two days. New Holland sees a potential market replacing old steel track crawlers, and the rubber tracks and modern cab offer greater comfort while the tracks can also be removed and replaced by wheels. The track option is available this year, and New Holland was keen to assess the

Comparing the results of the tractive force demonstration with the footprint measurement confirmed corresponding benefits – that the larger the ground contact area – the lower the ground pressure, and the more grip and traction was available.

Stressed soil A further test indicating pressure exerted through soil also produced interesting results. Probes with rubber tubes were placed approximately 20cm below the surface. When the tractor drove across the soil over the sensors, the probes were compressed, and the pressure was measured. The results clearly showed that reducing tyre inflation pressures resulted in lower pressure exerted on the probes, and the soil was under less stress.

With Isomount suspension, they allow speeds up to 40kph where standard wheel tractors would also travel at 40kph. continued over…

Extra profits?

Tom Saunders explains the significance of different contact areas achieved.

Trials by Harper Adams University approximately 10 years ago compared effects of operating machines on UltraFlex VF tyres on one area, while machines on an adjacent area were on standard tyres. The yield on the field area farmed using UltraFlex VF tyres was 4% higher than the area where standard tyres were used. Michelin stresses that to achieve improvements in soil structure and results, a complete vehicle fleet management approach is needed, with tyre equipment and pressures optimised. However, if 4% extra yield can be achieved over 100ha, then with wheat priced at £170/t, and

Air-less wheel Michelin’s X Tweel airless radial tyre, which uses poly-resin spokes to carry the load rather than air pressure, was also demonstrated. Michelin operational marketing manager, Chris Dolman (below) said the Tweel is available currently in sizes up to 18 inches and is proving particularly popular for use on skid-steer loaders where frequent punctures in conventional tyres are a problem. The technology is also being tested for use on cars and for other applications, and working life is up to three times that of …from previous page

Supply and fit UK TractAir Ltd, based in Lincolnshire, imports and installs the PTG tyre inflation system in the UK. “The only way to get the best performance from tyres is to run them at the right pressures,” explained TractAir senior design engineer, Alan Wattam (above). “Reduced pressures allow the operator to get so much more from tractors in the field. Less and shallower compaction, fuel savings, reduced tyre wear, improved soil drainage, a longer tyre working life and many more benefits, but they also need to run at suitable pressures at higher speeds on the road.”

Alan stressed that reasons tyres are not run at optimum pressures include – time taken to check and adjust, lack of an air supply, advantages of correct inflation pressures not being understood, and a lack of interest if the user isn’t paying for fuel.” He said the TractAir CTIS is fully integrated and convenient to use. Pipework to the front wheels is external, but for situations where it might be damaged it can be quickly disconnected without tools and the front air lines stored safely on the mudguards. If damage does occur while the lines are connected, then no air can escape from the tyres. Most rear wheels have an internal air supply

Tracks favoured for high horsepower Demand for rubber tracks is increasing, according to New Holland high horsepower tractor specialist David Redman. “Since the T8 SmartTrax was introduced, sales of the tracked model have outnumbered wheeled machines nine to one,” he explained. “The T8-435 on 30-inch Camso tracks is the most popular choice, and reasons customers give for preferring tracks include the narrower transport width, ability to transmit power to the ground, the larger ground contact area, and improved flotation. On SmartTrax models, approximately 80% of the power is transmitted through the rear axle and Camso tracks have excellent design characteristics including wide drive lugs which dissipate heat and help ensure a long working life. They are very resistant to damage, and reliable too,” he added. David said that for T7, T7 HD and T6 models the popularity of VF tyres is increasing as customers learn of the benefits. “For the T7 HD there is particularly strong demand for Michelin VF tyres, and we are seeing growing demand for complementary CTIS. For faster inflation we can supply a larger 226cc compressor – the same as is fitted when optional ABS braking is specified. It produces approximately 30% more air flow than the standard unit.

“Fitting a CTIS is particularly popular for larger farms and contractors injecting slurry, where higher pressures are selected for road transport and then they are reduced for field work. We also supply tyre pressure monitoring as an option for the latest T7 HD with pressures displayed on the IntelliView 12 display and making it easy to check up to 16 tyres,” he added.

significant advantages over standard tyres in many situations and combined with a CTIS the owner can achieve maximum efficiency and performance from his investment.”

Order with VF Michelin Beyond Road account manager Tom Saunders suggests that ordering new tractors on VF tyres from the factory provides significant savings over conversions later. “To get the best from VF tyres they need to be on the correct rims which allow them to achieve the optimal U-profile. Some standard rims are suitable too, but they don’t allow the tyres to achieve the ideal shape, so performance is compromised. Ordering new tractors on VF tyres from the start is the most cost-effective solution,” he emphasised. Tom believes future developments in CTIS will include applications such as fitting to combines, so that the tyre pressures are increased as the grain tank fills, and then reduce again when it is emptied. “VF tyres offer

Don’t miss out on new grant funding With a pot of £27 million available in the Farming Equipment and Technology Fund, you have the opportunity to fund the purchase of new equipment, from a list of eligible items, intended to improve productivity and provide environmental benefits. You can claim up to £25,000 in the first round of the Farming Equipment and Technology Fund (FETF), on a variety of items, including the Ceres Sub-Line Grassland Subsoiler (Sward Lifter) and the new Scorpion Tree Grab (pictured). There are a variety of models of the Sub-Line

Grassland Subsoiler (Sward Lifter) available, but to comply with the FETF specifications, only the 3-, 4and 5-leg models are eligible for the grant funding. The Sub-Line is designed to achieve the maximum efficiency from your soil by lifting and shattering compaction, allowing air, water and nutrients to


flow into the substructure, improving soil health and preventing flash run-off of water. The row of leading discs can all be adjusted with one handle, which has six working positions and one out-of-work position. The discs can be kept in their optimum working position, cutting through the sward cleanly, allowing the leg to pass through without tearing the surface. Each of the contoured, low-draft legs are mounted in-line on the substantial frame, with two M16 shear bolts for protection. The flat, rear roller has simple dual turn-buckle adjustment to control the working depth of the machine, and leaves a neat, level finish across the width of the work. There is a galvanised, adjustable scraper mounted within the roller arms to prevent congestion and build-up. As part of the Ceres Titanium range of products, which are known for their strength and durability, Ceres introduces the new Scorpion Tree Grab, constructed from 100% Hardox. With its wideopening pincers, it can cope easily with large trees, right the way down to smaller branches and brush. From one, simple double-acting auxiliary, both pincers will keep an even pressure, even across varying diameters on the same trunk, thus maintaining a firm and stable grip, no matter the terrain. Designed for the harshest woodland conditions, the hydraulic rams are heavily protected by the framework and the headstock pipes and locking pins are shielded by a Hardox barrier. The Scorpion is designed to suit telehandlers from 2–6t lift capacity, as well as smaller loading shovels, so it is suitable for occasional farm use through to the toughest forestry clearance contractors.

Practical advice for glamping businesses As a growing number of farmers look to diversify, with many choosing to capitalise on the popularity of glamping, Glampsan’s general manager, Jon Trelfa, offers advice on managing waste at your site. Farmers are facing a cocktail of challenges – from the phase-out of direct payments and extreme weather conditions, to Brexit- and Covid-related complications. Combined with growing pressure

from the government to reach increasingly high standards, farmers are increasingly looking to diversifications to improve profitability. Glamping has been a popular

business choice for many as Covid-19 resulted in a boom in ‘staycations’, with many desperate to enjoy the British countryside and get out of the confines of their homes. While Covid restrictions have now relaxed, this popularity looks set to continue, and with many also looking to enjoy a Christmas getaway in the UK, glamping is not just for the summer months. Whether you are diversifying into glamping, camping or events, providing toilets and washing facilities will always be a key consideration. Glampsan offers an ‘evolution’ of toilet and waste handling solutions. At one end of the spectrum, it provides composting, separating and low volume flush toilets, which tick plenty of green credential boxes by reducing water consumption, the company says. Towards the middle of the range, you may need waste collection tanks – above or below ground – to capture grey and black water for later removal by a waste collection company. Collection tanks are particularly suitable if you have supplied water for flushing toilets, washing facilities and

showers, but you can’t access a mains sewer for the waste, Jon says. If you want to avoid storing waste in a collection tank, you might need a sewage lifting station or waste pump from Glampsan’s range, to move waste across your site, perhaps to an existing septic tank. At the top end of the range is a sewage treatment plant/septic tank. Glampsan is a market-leading supplier of a host of solutions, backed up by its passion for customer service.

Tractor brands, tree planting and farm safety are just some of the topics farmers are being asked about by market researchers. Sarah Morris, managing director of FieldMouse Research, which runs the Opinion Harvester panel that gathers opinions from farmers and those living and working in rural communities, says: "These are just some of the subjects that our clients in the research industry have been exploring recently on behalf of organisations in both the public and private sectors. “The more farmers we have registered on Opinion Harvester, the bigger the surveys we can run – which means more organisations will use Opinion Harvester to poll a decent representative sample size of British farmers. And each time they do, the farmers who take the survey will

each get £10, as well as of course the opportunity to have your say.” Launched by FieldMouse in 2021 with Alligator Digital, Opinion Harvester is rapidly gaining a reputation within the research industry as a highly verified and trustworthy panel, as every new sign-up is individually checked by the FieldMouse team. Farmers can expect to be paid on average £10 for completing a quick online survey or £100 for joining a focus group – which may be held over Zoom or in-person. Sign up at www. FG

Tax year end tips for farmers The conclusion of the tax year is quickly approaching in 2022. There are various options for farmers to take advantage of in the brief window until 5th April 2022, which may help to improve tax efficiency. Samuel Jackson, investment adviser at Churchgates, suggests some points to think about. It may be possible to use the Annual Investment Allowance (AIA) to offset the cost of qualifying capital expenditure against taxable profits. If you are acquiring farm equipment, it might be worth doing so before the year-end if you have any unused allowance to ensure tax relief is achieved by your farm as soon as possible. The transaction date for tax purposes is the date the invoice is issued if acquired outright with no financing. If purchased through hire purchase, the transaction date for tax is the date the farm first uses the equipment. If your farming trade is held in a corporate structure, you may be able to utilise the super-deduction, a new capital allowance offering up to 130% tax relief on expenditure on qualifying new plant and machinery assets.

Your repair costs for farm machinery and infrastructure are also deductible from taxable profits. If significant repairs are necessary, doing them before the end of the tax year might help to reduce your tax liabilities. If you intend to crystallise a capital loss on an asset to offset against a capital gain you will make in the fiscal year ending 5th April 2023, and you have no other gains to offset against in the current tax year, you should do so before 5th April 2022. Doing this will maintain your Capital Gains Tax annual exemption for the 2022/23 tax year whilst allowing any unused crystallised losses to carry forward indefinitely. Suppose you wish to make a pension contribution. In that case, you should do so before 5th April 2022 to take advantage of the

available tax breaks, minimise the amount of income subject to higher tax rates, or avoid losing child benefits. The limit for pension contributions attracting tax relief is currently £40,000. Individuals with ‘threshold income’ of more than £200,000 AND ‘adjusted income’ of more than £240,000 will have their Pension Annual Allowance tapered. If the potential Inheritance Tax (IHT) liability on your farm and estate is a concern, you should consider careful IHT planning. Have you made use of your £3,000 annual gift exemption for Inheritance Tax? If not, you can carry it forward for a year. Child benefit will be restricted if either spouse has a total yearly income of more than £50,000. Divide money between couples as evenly as is feasible so that neither receives more than £50,000 in total. If your farming income varies significantly from year to year, you should use Farmer's Averaging calculations to average the gains

over a two- or five-year period to ensure a proportionate tax liability overall. Reviewing your farm’s structure, such as shifting some activities to a limited company, can improve tax efficiency; however, this is a longer-term approach that you should carefully consider before implementing. Your tax planning decisions should always complement your farming business operations, rather than only offering a tax benefit. Churchgates specialises in helping farmers with many aspects of their financial and legal requirements. FG

The new Case IH Optum AFS Connect arrives early next year, making it easier to plan, manage and record field and transport operations. Farmers Guide test-drove the flagship Case IH Optum AFS Connect 300 CVX.

Updates future-proof versatile models First deliveries of the latest Case IH Optum AFS Connect tractors start in spring 2022, but Farmers Guide test drove one of only two already in the UK. David Williams reports. As before, there are three models from 250–300hp (rated). The flagship Optum 300 CVX, with up to 313hp (max) weighs only 11,530kg unladen but can be ballasted to 16,800kg, and also has a relatively short 2,995mm wheelbase. Rear tyres up to 2.15m diameter achieve traction to pull large cultivators and the Optum can operate power-hungry, PTO-driven implements while also being ideal for transport applications. Case IH doesn’t reveal sales numbers, but marketing manager Charles Blessley said the previous Optum’s sales growth in recent years was exponential as demand for this class of tractor increased. The latest Optum has more than just a facelift. Although the chassis, engine output and front-end styling is similar to before it features a completely new cab and several external design improvements.

All-new cab The new cab is 7.5% bigger and extends further to the rear, with increased space for storage and making the operator’s work area feel much larger. A revised mudguard profile makes room for a larger door as well as a cooled storage box beneath the passenger seat. The new mudguard shape also improves the view down to the sides, and the front windscreen wiper has

been moved to the base of the screen, improving forward vision, and there is a 20% larger swept area. The cab finish is even better than before, and three trim levels include a choice of fabric or leather seats. Keyless-entry allows users to lock and unlock the cab using a fob or just by touching the door handle. Fobs can be allocated to each user, and as the cab is entered then preferred settings for that user are automatically applied which saves setting up the controls each time. The front console is revised and incorporates a large number of vents, improving air distribution around the cab for greater comfort. Uprated air conditioning reduces the cab temperature 35% faster than before.

Improved controls Essential operating information including the engine speed, memorised travel speeds, fuel level and engine temperature are all displayed on a new external A-pillar display which replaces previous gauges recessed into the pillar. The new AFS PRO 1200 HD 12in touch terminal is on the main control armrest. The Android-based operating system is used to set up and monitor almost all tractor and implement functions including GPS guidance, plus climate control, the radio and mobile continued over…

Cab improvements include new steps, a wider door opening and all-new styling and controls.

Machinery wear on the mechanical brakes by using exhaust gasses and the cooling fan to reduce the engine speed and slow the tractor. The differential lock and 4wd can be programmed within the headland management system to automatically disengage and re-engage based on the steering angle or operation of the rear linkage.

User-friendly data handling

Essential information is displayed on the large A-pillar mounted screen, and the main 12-in AFS 1200 Pro touch-screen is used for GPS guidance, screen sharing, to adjust settings for the tractor and implements, and to set operator preferences. Beneath the hinged armrest cover are manual dials, giving operators a choice of controls. External improvements include new Bosch hydraulic connectors with lever pressure release. They are tilted downwards so that they remain clean, and couplings can be inserted more easily. External engine speed control from mudguard-mounted buttons allows users to activate the PTO, then select a memorised engine speed for static operation. …from previous page

phones. Manual knobs, switches and buttons are hidden beneath a hinged cover, allowing those who would rather not operate everything from the touch-screen to use traditional controls instead. Isobus Class 3 including tractor control by implement is standard.

User preference A new feature is customisable controls, which can be assigned to multiple functions. These include buttons and switches on the joystick and the four main hydraulic control switches. For safety, the hydraulic controls are colour-coded with LED lights, and as the operator reassigns them to operate alternative spools, the LED lights change colour too, to avoid confusion.

On the previous Optum the driver could adjust the performance response in three stages to suit a task. Drive engagement, acceleration and deceleration as well as response to changing loads were all adjusted simultaneously. The new Optum allows the driver to adjust each aspect separately for different acceleration responses when selecting forward or reverse, for example. A new kick-down feature increases the engine speed and selects a lower gear when the accelerator is depressed quickly for maximum acceleration. Advanced trailer braking is included, which can be set to engage the trailer brakes before the tractor brakes when travelling downhill and reducing the chance of jack-knifing. A foot-operated exhaust brake saves

The biggest contribution to farm efficiency is likely to come from AFS Connect wireless connectivity. New AFS Connect tractors come with three years of Advanced AFS telematics alongside three years’ or 3,000 hours’ warranty. Telematics are connected as soon as the tractor leaves the production line, and owners can access the data through the MyCaseIH portal. The Optum’s processors can manage huge amounts of data allowing remote task management, monitoring and record keeping, and making it easy to keep an eye on service requirements. Screen sharing is available, allowing a manager or trainer to view the same display image as the operator and talk him though settings. When the display is viewed remotely, then the screen is highlighted with an orange border to inform the driver. The trainer cannot change settings himself, but can initiate markers indicating the settings to be changed. Task information such as AB lines and variable application maps can be created in the farm office and then sent to the tractor and field working data can be shared. Multiple tractors can be linked in the field so that working data can be shared in real time so that areas aren’t worked twice or missed. Monitoring is also possible through the Case IH AFS Connect smartphone app. This provides fleet status updates including tractor locations, work status, job progress and fuel levels, but doesn’t allow screen sharing or task editing currently. With the owner’s permission, the dealer can access selected information such as error codes to help diagnose faults, and working data to help plan servicing. Breakdown prevention is also possible, as operating data is automatically compared to similar machines which have had a common failure, and allowing potentially faulty parts to be checked or replaced before breakdowns occur. Work data is updated every minute, or stored and updated later if there is a break in transmission. AFS product specialist John Downes said that one aspect of work history data which has proved particularly useful for owners of other models with AFS Connect so far, is the

driveline working hours figure. Case IH said that when this is contrasted with total and idling hours recorded, it often highlights surprising differences, providing an opportunity to consider strategies to improve work rates and efficiency.

Third-party friendly Within the MyCaseIH portal, the Farm Management section provides convenient task recording and analysis by field and by crop. Compatibility with other brands including Claas and John Deere means only the Case IH portal is needed for fleet management – including location, location history, engine hours, operating status and average fuel consumption. Fuel use data can be recorded for each field or crop, and costs for inputs such as diesel can be added, simplifying analysis. Although the app cannot be used for task planning or screen sharing, the user can mark points or areas of interest and these are then displayed on the terminals of all tractors on the farm fleet. Compatibility with third-party agronomy and farm management software is increasing and will allow field maps to be sent directly from agronomists to the machines for tasks such as variable rate drilling or fertiliser applications. Where fleets of older Case IH tractors are also operated, the previous AFS 700 display can utilise the data, However, functions such as screen sharing are not possible.

Test drive Farmers Guide spent a morning operating the Optum 300 AFS Connect with a Bednar cultivator on a Nottinghamshire farm. A previous model Optum was also available to compare which highlighted advantages including the improved cab access due to the new steps and wider cab door. The cab interior is smart and well finished, and is a definite step above the previous version. Vision all around is very good, and the front console and bonnet are narrow, allowing a good view down to the front. The demonstration tractor had the optional key fob for access. With no ignition key, a start/stop button is pressed on the right-hand panel instead. Twin throttle finger controls set minimum and maximum engine operating speeds, and the engine’s ‘droop’ which is the reduction in revs allowed when loads increase. The 12in display has clear menus and provides convenient operation by touching the screen, although on uneven ground the mechanical continued over…

switches and knobs are more reliable. The travel direction is set using the steering-column mounted lever, then the joystick is pushed forward to move away. During the test-drive a sound measuring device confirmed that with the engine at full speed the sound level was just 65dB – and while cultivating there was never a need to raise voices while holding a conversation in the cab.

Useful automation With Headland Management Control 2 operating, the Optum automatically reduced its travel speed at a set distance from each headland, then raised the implement out of work and lowered the engine speed before completing each turn. With the implement’s dimensions programmed in to the terminal, including the transport wheel position, using Accuturn 2 the Optum achieved the tightest turn possible each time for pass-to-pass working. Alternative headland turn strategies can be selected in seconds just by touching the display. Unless changes to the work strategy are needed, then the only operator input required is confirmation before each headland

turn by pressing a joystick-mounted button. The new Optum AFS Connect is comfortable, quiet and easy to operate, and there is huge scope for keen operators to use settings adjustments within the AFS 1200 Pro display to optimise efficiency and performance.

Demonstrator opinion “I’ve always liked the Optum, and the new AFS Connect version will practically sell itself,” commented

Case IH product demonstrator Ed Watson.

Case IH demonstrator Ed Watson. “The new cab will rival the best from other brands, and the user-friendly AFS 1200 terminal and assignable controls will be something keen operators enjoy using. This Optum will open the door for our dealers in terms of attracting customers who were previously loyal to competitor brands.” John Downes said the task management and recording functions are user-friendly and provide accurate data. “Fuel

use and time taken for tasks are automatically recorded, and the resulting information can help make informed management decisions. It doesn’t add to the driver’s work load and everything is stored safely in the cloud, so when there is a need to review costs of operations, then all the data is there to view. “It’s not essential currently but there are advantages to having it, and if records have to be kept in future to calculate the carbon footprint for a particular crop, then this will help.” FG

Field task planning, monitoring and record keeping are more convenient through the MyCaseIH portal, explained AFS specialist John Downes (right), pictured with product marketing specialist Ross Macdonald.

Machinery Lemken demonstrated its new Solitair DT drill at a German press event in mid-November.

New options for cultivations and drilling A visit to Lemken’s German Agro Farm in mid-November included news and demonstrations of significant updates and new products which will be welcomed by UK farmers. David Williams was there. Lemken started the event reporting excellent worldwide sales and stressed that there is no sign of the sales boom ending. More than 4,000 seeding machines will be sold this year, but challenges include 95% increased steel costs compared with this time last year, and electronic components costing five times as much. The company believes that decarbonisation is a fantastic opportunity for farmers, although machinery must be developed to take full advantage. It added that the role of digitalisation and intelligent solutions for the future can’t be over-estimated.

Black-grass control Regarding black-grass control, Lemken has been involved with trials at Stow Longa in Cambridgeshire for many years, and the company’s presentation highlighted actions identified so far which can help reduce the weed burden: Restructure soil adequately to allow later drilling – but check depth of restructuring needed, otherwise there is a tendency to work too deep with associated increased costs. Ploughing can provide effective control, either on a rotational basis or as part of a management system – but it was stressed that a plough shouldn’t be used only because there is one on the farm. Limiting soil cultivations close to, or at, drilling reduces black-grass populations. The more soil movement that occurs then the more black-grass will germinate. Catch or cover crops have a role and a longer-term impact on soil structure, but proper restructuring relies on steel.

Finally – delaying crop drilling until the second half of October reduces black-grass populations by half.

Mechanical and targeted weed control The IC-Weeder AI with artificial intelligence to recognise crops has joined Lemken’s Steketee range. Distinguishing between weeds and crop allows targeted hoeing, so weeds can be mechanically removed even where there are large weed populations in growing crops. So far, the system has been trained to recognise sugar beet plants at various stages of development by their colour, texture, shape, size, and leaf position. This allows reliable hoeing even in challenging conditions too complex for conventional recognition systems. The cameras are protected under a hood so that they aren’t affected by ambient light. Thirty images per second are transmitted to the onboard computer, and the sickle shaped, pneumatically controlled blades hoe the rows between the plants operating as close as 2cm and retract as each sugar beet plant is approached. Although sugar beet is the first targeted application, other crops – including lettuce, celery and cabbages grown from seed – are likely to be added later. Where larger plants are transplanted, then the difference in plant size compared to surrounding weeds in the prepared soil means that conventional inter-row hoes without plant recognition are adequate. The cameras and plant recognition software recognise sugar beet plants continued over…

Calibration is easily carried out from the platform.

Disc coulters place fertiliser below the seed rows on the double-shot version, or supply seed and fertiliser through the same coulters on the single-shot model.

Lemken has added an inter-row hoe with artificial intelligence to identify sugar beet plants from camera images, allowing selective weeding at speeds up to 3kph.

The Solitair 9+ is now available in single- and double-shot versions and with a split hopper, allowing fertiliser to be placed while seeding, and multiple seed types to be drilled in one pass. …from previous page

Solitair range increased

with at least four true leaves at working speeds up to 3kph with 97% accuracy. Lemken stressed that the IC-Weeder AI makes hoeing effortless and precise, and it is also a significant step towards fully automated driving systems. First deliveries are due this year of 3m models costing approximately £100,000, and a 6m version will follow.

The new Solitair DT drill (pictured on page 151) has a lower draft requirement allowing use with smaller tractors, and it is available with a large, divided hopper for combined seeding and fertiliser applications. The hopper holds up to 5,100 litres, and there are two variants – a single-shot version allows seed and fertiliser to be placed together in a shared sealed furrow, whereas the double-shot version places fertiliser in a band below the seed level through a leading set of double disc coulters with working pressures up to 200kg per unit to ensure accurate depth control. The individually mounted seeding coulters have direct hydraulic pressure control with up to 70kg available, ensuring even depth across the working width. The drill is easily set up for different crops and conditions, and options include delivering fertiliser through the front disc coulters at 25cm spacing, while seed is delivered every 12.5cm, allowing fertiliser placement between the rows. Two dosing units metering different seeds from each hopper also allows supply at different rates to the rear OptiDisc coulters. A front tyre packer reconsolidates the land and has gaps matching the tractor wheeltrack for an even finish. The packer is followed by a compact disc harrow with large 465mm concave discs which are individually mounted and protected against overload. For reduced soil disturbance, vertical waffle discs are available which penetrate less – reducing moisture loss and weed emergence. For targeted reconsolidation of the seed rows a trapeze packer roller can be attached behind the disc harrow. The new metering units are electrically driven, and each supplies one distributor with seeds. The metering wheels are combined into seed wheel cassettes, eliminating the need to switch seed wheels on and

Advanced sprayer solution Also new in the Steketee range is the SprayHub front tank, intended to supply band spray nozzles for targeted weed control within plant rows, while mechanical hoes remove weeds between the rows. Using Lemken’s SprayKit application system with the mechanical inter-row hoes – the company suggests that 40–60% less spray chemical is needed than for full width spraying. It is also time efficient as mechanical hoeing and spraying are carried out in one pass. The SprayHub is basically a selfcontained sprayer, incorporating a hydraulic-driven pump, spray controls, and agitator and cleaning systems. With Isobus control, it can be operated through MegaSpray software. Tank capacity options are 1,100 or 1,500 litres and the tank unit comes with an integral clean water tank, hand wash canister and filling screen. An optional induction nozzle is available for dissolving solid spray agents, and a Closed Transfer System (CTS) connection is also available. The SprayKit is also suitable for use with other implements, and not just hoeing machines, and it features mechanical section control. Single row control will be added, allowing automatic section control through GPS. The SprayHub with SprayKit will be available from this spring, and options including adaptors for use with drop hoses and for under-root fertilisation will follow.

The Karat 10 cultivator has a new tine layout making it easier to pull. A range of optional cultivation elements from levelling tines to star discs, and a wide selection of rear packers are available and can be easily switched.

off, and the cassettes can be changed without tools. With electric drive, GPS section control is easily achieved. Seed placement is by proven OptiDisc double disc coulters with depth control wheels, mounted on parallelogram linkages. Lemken suggests typical fuel consumption of only 5 litres/ha when using the new drill, while speeds of 14–16kph achieve high work rates up to 9.6ha/hr. Hitching to the lower links allows 90-degree turns without risk of contacting the tractor tyres. Calibration is simply and conveniently carried out from the platform along-side the metering units. Isobus control is standard and there is no need for a tractor with complex hydraulic systems as standard spools are suitable.

Solitair 9+ – more options The Solitair 9+ Duo (pictured above left) adds versatility over the standard Solitair 9+ launched last year. The Duo model features a split hopper for seed and fertiliser, two different types of seed, or seed and catch crops. The hopper’s 1,850kg capacity can be divided 50/50 or 60/40. A single-shot version combines seed and fertiliser from the metering units of both hopper segments. This is ideal for adding fertiliser while drilling winter cereal crops for rapid establishment. Automatic tramlining is integrated within the distributors. The double-shot version provides greater flexibility as the two components flow separately to double disc coulters from doubled distributors through individual seed pipes. Both products can be placed in a single row, or separately and alternately in two rows just by swapping the tramline cartridge in the distributor. Further flexibility includes the placement depth as every other row can be set separately through the pressure rollers up to a

difference of 5cm, making the drill ideal for seeding beans and mustard simultaneously for example. Different seeds can be placed at their respective optimum depths, or inter-row fertilisers can be ideally placed while seeding. Full availability is forecast from this month in 3m and 4m versions.

Karat 10 With three beams and symmetrically arranged tines, the Karat 10 (above) retains the previous Karat 9’s soil mixing ability, but the new layout reduces the draft requirement and side forces. A greater range of equipment options and drawbars suits more applications and allows use with tractors fitted with wider tyres. For ultra-shallow cultivations wider winged shares are available, while narrow shares can be quickly fitted instead for deeper cultivations. Specially shaped guide plates achieve improved mixing and DeltaCut shares are available for shallow cultivations. Edge levelling tools are also new, allowing use with the cultivator folded. Leading discs on individual leaf springs are an option to break up clods, and chop and incorporate large volumes of organic matter. Adjustable levelling elements behind the tines are also available for improved levelling, and specially shaped star wheels which resist blocking and mud build up can be fitted instead for optimal results in heavy soils. The Karat 10 comes in mounted and semi-mounted versions and with working widths from 3–7m. Increased performance is available through a traction booster and new ContourTrack, particularly when operating semi-mounted models in undulating terrain. A wide range of sizes and types of rear packer can be specified. continued over…

New option ContourTrack adapts the cultivator to maintain a constant working depth on undulating ground. Without it, the tine operating depth can be too deep when working across ridges, or too shallow when passing over localised dips. ContourTrack monitors the working depth at each side through the wheels, and an angle sensor monitors the relative working positions of the front and rear cultivation elements and constantly adjusts to maintain the pre-set working angle and depth. This is a particular advantage for ultrashallow tillage where a difference of just a few centimetres working depth is significant. ContourTrack can also be used to

weight in the butterfly transport position, the frame swivel cylinder can be depressurised allowing free movement over uneven ground. Deliveries of the Juwel 8i start in March.

Intelligent ploughing

Factory-fitted slurry applicator

A new Juwel 8i plough with Isobus control was displayed, featuring Lemken’s IQ plough control system. Demand for Isobus plough control is increasing, allowing convenient adjustment of rotation, inclination, working width and working depth from the cab. On-plough hydraulic systems mean only three hose connections to the tractor, saving time. Up to eight working scenarios can be stored for recall and activation at the touch of a button. Examples of benefits include ensuring the last furrow is kept shallow when ploughing the headlands to avoid deep cross-furrows. Hydraulic inclination adjustment of the plough can be made independently on the right and left to produce an optimal ploughing pattern in all conditions. Like the Juwel 10; the Juwel 8i can be moved on the road with the top link in place. With the single transport wheel taking the plough’s

Lemken has added a slurry application system to options available for the Heliodor discs, for easy and reliable operation with self-propelled or trailed slurry tankers.

Lincolnshire farmers get first look at new 4x4 The Ineos Grenadier is completely new, but borrows many aspects of its appearance from the traditional and popular Land Rover Defender. Designed as a true on- and offroad multi-purpose vehicle, it is attracting a lot of interest from farmers. David Williams attended a preview. The Grenadier has permanent 4wd, front, centre and rear locking differentials, a two-speed mechanical transfer box, and power from BMW engines driving through a ZF eight-speed automatic transmission to Carraro axles, so much of the technology is from brands already well respected by farmers. The shape and size are similar to previous generation long-wheelbase Land Rover Defenders, but every component is new. The 4mm boxsection chassis is treated inside and out to prevent corrosion, and the body is galvanised steel with aluminium doors.

Practical design

265hp and 450Nm of torque. A gross vehicle weight of 7.0t includes 2.5t unladen weight, a 1.0t payload and 3.5t towing capacity. The rear load area is accessed through vertical hinged doors which open wide making it easy to load and unload. There is space for a pallet on the floor. The doors are unequal size with a 30/70 split, and the small door opens first making it easy to load smaller items where there is restricted room behind the vehicle. The Grenadier will come in standard and commercial formats, and it is likely that a pick-up version with a double cab will be added later.

Open days at the dealer’s Belton and Horncastle depots were well attended by potential customers. Pictured with the prototype vehicle are (l-r) Gavin Pell, Ineos UK sales manager Jack Stanley and Aktar Matin.

Lincolnshire agent Potential customers can register interest and achieve priority delivery by placing a fully refundable deposit now, with formal orders being taken from spring this year, and deliveries due from early autumn. One of the first UK agents is Chandlers (Farm Equipment) Ltd, which holds the Fendt, Massey Ferguson and Valtra franchises for an area from Lincolnshire across the Midlands to Wiltshire. Chandlers already holds the Ssangyong pick-up franchise. “We see it as a completely different product to our Ssangyong vehicles, and the two will complement each other well,” explained Chandlers managing director Gavin Pell. “The Grenadier is ideally suited to the needs of many of our customers and we believe the five-seat commercial model will be most popular, as it is practical and offers significant tax advantages. “It’s a true off-road vehicle with the advantage over a pick-up that loads in the rear are completely protected. We believe it will appeal to both arable and livestock farmers, contractors, machinery

The interior is designed for comfort and practicality and the seats were designed specially by Recaro, and are available in leather, stain and waterresistant fabric, or vinyl. The flooring is carpet or rubber, with drain valves allowing the interior to be cleaned using a hose. Controls are arranged logically in groups on the centre console, dashboard and in the roof panel, and are wide spaced for operation by wet or gloved hands. A wide range of accessories will be available and the Grenadier comes with everything pre-wired so that the main looms and switches remain sealed, for long-term reliability and convenience.

dealers, engineers, gamekeepers, foresters and estate owners. It’s very stylish and comfortable, and the range of accessories means it can be equipped for any situation.” Gavin said he has been excited about the Grenadier since hearing about the design project more than two years ago. “We are delighted to have been appointed as the agent for Lincolnshire at our Belton and Horncastle depots, and we will be running demonstration vehicles and providing service, parts and warranty support for customers while Ineos sells the vehicles direct,” he added. “We are already planning an off-road event for April – and the number of customers who have expressed an interest confirms our belief that demand will be high. “The prototype was displayed on our stand at the Midland Machinery Show and there were

queues of people keen to inspect it. Our November open days were also very well attended.”

Features suit application Ineos product specialist Aktar Matin said the Grenadier was designed without compromise. “We didn’t want complex systems such as air suspension, but we also didn’t want the slow reaction of leaf springs, so coil springs are used all around instead,” he stressed. “The controls are all splashproof for practicality and we use mechanical knobs and switches for the main systems rather than touchscreens as they are easier to operate. For those needing a dependable and capable off-road and towing vehicle which can also carry passengers in comfort we believe we will offer the best solution.” Prices start at £48,000. FG

The interior is practical but attractive. The switches are designed for operation by wet, cold or gloved hands. Seats are by Recaro and available in leather, fabric or vinyl.

Nottinghamshire-based contractor David Whyley, trading as DJ Whyley, attended the Belton depot Grenadier event. David’s main contracting activities are hedge cutting for farmers and local authorities and he also specialises in grassland and paddock maintenance, operating from a base at Langar. “I was keen to see the Grenadier as it sounded good, but having had the opportunity to inspect it in the flesh, it‘s even better than I had hoped,” he said. “I enrolled in the Ineos research programme early on in the development, and features I consider essential such as high and low transmission ranges and 3.5t towing capacity are standard. “I need a vehicle which can tow a large machinery trailer, and there is currently limited choice apart from pick-up trucks. The Grenadier seems rugged, it’s built on a proper chassis, it has a decent transmission and is made for offroad use, and it’s the sort of vehicle that can be pulled out by a tractor if it does become stuck, without having to worry that it will bend.” David Whyley is pictured (left) with Ineos Grenadier product specialist Dave Axford.

Machinery John Deere has announced updated 6R tractors, including a new 6R.185 model with a short wheelbase for superb manoeuvrability but up to 234hp available.

information has been relocated to a cab pillar display. A new E-joystick provides particular benefits for loader work. The buttons are configurable to suit the task and operator preference, and forward/reverse shuttle can be activated at the touch of a button. A hand detection system means no secondary safety button is needed.

Front loaders As well as the E-joystick to simplify operation, there is a new dynamic weighing system which weighs loads on the move, without having to stop. Return to Position allows a loader and attachment position to be set and memorised, then the loader returns to that position every time just by touching a button. Level to Horizon avoids spilling loads in the bucket or on pallets.

Styling, performance and precision farming updates for best-selling line-up John Deere has announced a new generation of 6R-series tractors with family styling matching latest 7R and 8R tractors, plus additional smart farming features, and significant precision farming updates during an online press conference. David Williams reports. The latest 6R-series includes 14 models with 4-cyl and 6-cyl power units, and the line-up includes four new models. These include the 6R.185 with a 6.8-litre PowerTech PSS engine and up to 234hp available through Intelligent Power Management (IPM), but which is especially compact for its power with a very short 2.76m wheelbase. Other 6R 6-cyl models in the range have 2.8 and 2.9m wheelbases, and the 6R.185 will satisfy demand from contractors and professional farms for a versatile tractor which is especially efficient for transport applications. AutoPowr CVT transmission is standard.

manoeuvrability, the 6R.150 is also available with larger tyres than previous 6R-series 4-cyl models. The largest rear tyres that can be fitted are 650/65R38, ensuring power can be effectively transferred to the ground. The 6R.150 weighs only 6.5t unladen, but has a maximum

Precision farming updates

permissible weight up to 10.45t, and it is described by the manufacturer as providing benefits of a 4-cyl tractor including compact dimensions, superb manoeuvrability and a low unladen weight with the performance of a 6-cylinder machine. The 6R.150 also features a large 155 litres/min hydraulic pump providing fast cycle times for loader work.

Even better cabs The previous 6R-series cabs were popular, but the latest version is even better and the dashboard which was behind the steering wheel before has been removed, and essential

A new StarFire GPS receiver was announced for 2022, offering improved signal availability and stability, particularly in shaded areas. Also new is 1-Click-Go AutoSetup which saves time setting up implements and field work strategies. Required settings can be preplanned and managed in the cloud, including agronomic data such as field boundaries, guidance lines and prescription maps. As soon as the field boundary is crossed the stored profile is immediately available and as well as improving accuracy and productivity, the new feature will help temporary and less experienced operators avoid errors, and achieve improved efficiency. FG

IPM performance improved For the new 6R tractors, IPM is available for a wider range of applications than before, including transport work, PTO applications and now while powering hydraulic-driven implements too. IPM adds up to 40hp for 6-cyl models and 20hp for those with 4-cyl engines.

Powerful 4-cyl model The new 6R.150 which is the flagship of the 4-cyl model lineup is expected to appeal to larger mixed farms. With 165 max hp or 177hp with IPM, and a short 2.58m wheelbase allowing excellent

High capacity 12m drills join premium line-up Vaderstad has announced its first 12m drills which will join its existing seeding line-up, during an online press conference in early November. David Williams reports. The new Inspire family of drills combines high work rates with precise seed placement. There are currently two models for seed-only or combined seed and fertiliser. The Inspire drills feature a high-capacity seed hopper on large transport wheels, with a 12m seeding unit at the rear, behind the main wheels and with smaller support wheels at the ends of the toolbar. They complement current Spirit drills available in working widths up to 9m, and Rapid drills which come in widths up to 8m.

Huge capacity The seed-only Inspire 1200S has a 5,000-litre hopper, while the seed and fertiliser Inspire 1200C has a 7,200-litre

split hopper which Vaderstad says is one of the largest in its class.

1.5m section control Both versions feature eight seeding sections supplied by eight Fenix 3 metering units. On the combination drill – seed and fertiliser is combined within the same airstream after leaving the hopper. Using eight metering units means variable rate drilling is easily achieved, as well as section control to 1.5m accuracy. Seeds are placed through proven double-disc coulters, similar to those on the Spirit drills, across the tool bar. Mounted between the two end wheels and just behind the main central wheels, the coulters follow ground

The large 7,200-litre hopper allows easy filling.

undulations accurately for precise depth control.

E-Control or Isobus Vaderstad’s E-Control through an iPad app controls the drill and there is full Isobus compatibility. The new Inspire drills will be shown at Agritechnica in February, and deliveries will start in autumn 2022.

Meets future demands Vaderstad UK managing director Mike Alsop said that the Inspire drill meets demand for a high-speed seeder capable of working within conventional and reduced tillage regimes. “Preparations needed before drilling will depend on the previous crop and ground conditions, but the double-disc coulters are extremely well-proven and capable of working in a wide range of soils with minimal pre-cultivation where conditions are

favourable. Like the Spirit drill, the contour-following ability is excellent and drilling speeds up to 15–18kph will be easily achieved. “Traditional 125mm row spacing allows growers to establish recommended plant populations and achieve effective weed suppression. We know our customers well and many of those farming large areas have already expressed interest in the new drill. We have also been contacted by large-scale growers we haven’t dealt with previously, from the Scottish Borders to the south coast who are excited at this addition to our range. The general view is that this drill meets requirements for future farming strategies rather than the needs of the past.” A demonstration drill is expected to arrive in the UK in time for spring drilling, and Mike said there is already a long list of customers keen to try it.

The new Vaderstad 12m drills fold neatly for road transport.

The central high-capacity hopper means that rather than carrying seed in individual hoppers on each seeding unit, there is only the one, hopper to fill. The Tempo’s seed distribution system then supplies each row unit, and the design will save considerable time spent filling the drill with seed, for even higher work rates. The new Tempo L is available in 16 or 24 row widths for row spacing options from 450–762mm.

Popular pick-up will come with even more engine and spec options Ford has announced updates to its new Ranger pick-ups which are due to replace current models later this year. David Williams reports. Improved styling includes a larger, more aggressive looking front grille, with new headlight options including halogen and matrix LED. The interior is just as comfortable but even more practical than before, and access to the load bed is easier and safer with an integrated side-step. A clever cargo management system helps arrange and secure loads.

Powerful V6 Engine choices include two 4-cyl, 2.0-litre turbo-diesels with single or bi-turbo configurations and there is also a more powerful 3.0-litre V6 which is bound to be a favourite for towing. Transmission options are sixspeed manual or auto, or a 10-speed automatic. The 4-cyl single turbo power unit comes in two different performance levels and the 4-cyl bi-turbo is claimed to offer greater versatility for a wider range of tasks, and combines high power output with excellent fuel economy.

Comfortable and practical The revised interior provides more comfort, technology and functionality. The dashboard and control layout in current models is popular with users, but the new version is even better in terms of appearance and quality. One of the most obvious changes to the controls is a huge 10.1in touchscreen in the centre of the dashboard, and an even larger 12in version is an option. Both can be used as a single display or split down into sections to monitor and control different aspects of the vehicle. The new gear shift lever is short and stubby, and incorporates the electronic parking brake. There are up to six driving modes available – similar to the options provided on the current flagship Raptor specification.

Wireless data transfer (telematics) allows software updates to be sent direct to the vehicle saving a visit to the dealer, and allows maintenance requirements to be monitored and servicing to be planned. The rear seats in double-cab versions fold flat providing extra load space, and there is also concealed storage below the seats. A new 360-degree camera system makes it easier to keep an eye on what is happening around the vehicle – particularly useful when operating in confined areas and narrow gateways. Ford says the new Ranger was designed based on feedback from customers, and as the current Ranger is Europe’s leading pick-up in terms of sales volumes – achieving a 39.9% market share during the 12 months to September 2021, the new version has a hard act to follow. Although a choice of three engines at the launch is already an increase on what is available currently, it is likely that additional options will also be added.

Inside High equipment levels are standard and there is added functionality through the large touchscreen which looks after communications, entertainment and provides information. Connectivity allows users to access vehicle information remotely through the FordPass smartphone app, and it also brings new features such as the ability to start the engine remotely, giving the vehicle time to warm up or cool down before the driver and passengers arrive. Most traditional driving mode controls have been moved from the dashboard and centre console to a dedicated display where the user can conveniently monitor vehicle status including drive-line settings,

Ford has announced its new Ranger pick-ups which are due to replace current models late this year, with deliveries due to start early in 2023.

The interior is even better than before. Driver aids include a 360-degree camera and wireless connectivity means the vehicle’s location, status and maintenance requirements can be checked through the FordPass smartphone app from anywhere with an internet connection.

steering angle, as well as pitch and roll angles. In-vehicle storage featured strongly in the design brief, and there is plenty for small and larger items for front and rear seat passengers.

Ride and handling Demand for the Ranger is anticipated from a wide variety of users, so the pick-up has to be sturdy and capable, but comfortable and smart looking too. The front wheels have been moved forward 50mm for a better approach angle and outboard for better articulation – improving off-road ability. The rear suspension dampers have been relocated too – for a better ride. Transmission choice includes

2wd, selectable 2wd/4wd, an electric shift on the move 2wd/4wd, and an advanced new full-time 4wd.

Practicality The rear load bed is easier to climb into, using the innovative steps behind the rear tyres, and there is also more space for bulkier items due to its extra width. A tough, plastic bed-liner and extra adjustable cargo tie-down points will be valued features on farms.

Great expectations Little is known so far regarding the final specification or model variants that will be available for the European market, but already the new Ranger is creating a lot of interest with potential buyers. FG

Twin applicator approach cuts rape establishment from five passes to two An economically efficient establishment system keeps oilseed rape in the rotation and helps reduce carbon emissions on-farm, confirms one Wiltshire farmer. Twin applicator approach Use of a Terracast Duo – a combined seeder and starter fertiliser application system – alongside a Terracast V2 applicator for accurate, even distribution of slug pellets has enabled arable farmer David Lemon, of DL Lemon Wilson Limited, to continue growing oilseed rape in his rotation by establishing it directly and earlier. David, who farms 1,417ha of combinable crops between Burbage and Hungerford near the Berkshire/ Wiltshire border, has always grown OSR – and, until 2019 had consistently included it in a one in four rotation alongside wheat, spring and winter barley, maize and rye. This is despite suffering some inconsistent yields, due largely to late establishment, challenging weather and pests such as cabbage stem flea beetle (CSFB). “Historically, our approach to rape was to cultivate with a 7m Simba SL behind a Quadtrac, follow up with a

Vaderstad Carrier, drill conventionally, then roll twice. Beyond the high cost of five separate passes, the key problem was that with every pass, we lost moisture in the soil. And the one thing you really need to establish rape well is good levels of soil moisture. In autumn 2019, we experienced an unusually long dry spell and the patchy rape crop that followed was devoured by CSFB. Over the course of six days, we lost 120ha of oilseed rape – over 50% of that year’s rape crop. Clearly, we’d come to a crossroad, and something had to change in order to justify keeping rape in our rotation,” he explains.

Quick and easy to calibrate Initially, David lengthened the rotation to one in five for rape, bringing in winter barley and rye which he knew he could establish earlier using a simplified four pass approach. A cover crop of buckwheat was sown alongside the rape to

improve establishment and support the early crop. However, there were still too many passes, and the overall cost of establishing the rape remained too high when assessed against the ongoing risk of yield losses to CSFB, poor weather and other pests. “Whilst doing some online research into purchasing a new Techneat applicator to apply the cover crop, I started to look at the possibility of running two Techneat applicators – a Terracast Duo and a Terracast V2, on the Simba SL to reduce passes. However, despite the positives around applying a cover crop, starter fertiliser and slug pellets simultaneously, I wasn’t convinced it would solve all our agronomic problems, given I also wanted to reduce our weed burden with a machine that could drill and cultivate with minimal surface soil disturbance. The answer was to mount both applicators on a

6m Cousins Micro-Wing Oil Drill – effectively a strip tillage machine that’s ideal for drilling rape straight in behind the combine in order to establish oilseed rape as early as possible. “We bought the Cousins MicroWing second hand from Ben Burgess – a dealer in Newmarket, Suffolk. Overall, it was in good condition, and the only initial maintenance required was to put a new set of tungsten tips onto the tines. Set up on the Techneat applicators was straightforward given they’re quick and easy to calibrate. We simply changed cartridges on the Terracast Duo and Terracast V2 machines to align the application rates of both the buckwheat cover crop and slug pellets to 2kg/ha with the starter fertiliser being applied at 15kg/ha. “Trialling the new system for the first time proved extremely successful and we have cut our rape establishment costs by 30%, reducing the number of passes from five to two. The Cousins Micro-Wing, with its big row spacings, moves far less surface soil than the Simba SL, reducing our early weed burden and enabling us to cut our rape herbicide program by two sprays. “With prices of £500/t for rape currently available, the decision to keep the crop in the rotation through investment in a new system has been one of the best decisions we have made. In terms of reducing crop emissions and our drive towards greater sustainability; the use of cover crops, reduced cultivations, a lower horsepower per ha ratio and reduced fuel use per ha are all moves in the right direction. I’m also confident that in the longer term this system will improve our soil health, given less soil is disturbed during the simplified two pass process,” concludes David. FG

Case IH has announced updated Farmall, Maxxum and Puma tractors as well as a new line-up of loaders to meet the needs of all types of users. Pictured – the 2022 Farmall 120C with an L3814T loader.

New loader line-up and updated tractors Case IH has announced significant updates to its Farmall, Maxxum and Puma ranges as well as three new series of loaders. David Williams reports. Loader news Case IH has announced a new range of loaders for its tractors from the Farmall C to the Puma. As well as increasing the number of specification and capacity options, Case IH has also brought loaders into its online configurator, allowing customers to choose a new tractor and specify exactly which loader best suits their needs – ordering both as one package supplied and backed up by the dealer. There are three loader ranges, A, U and T. The top specification T series has hydraulic self-levelling and comes in sizes from 3.75m maximum height to 4.7m and with lift capacities from 1,390–2,720kg, and to suit tractors from the Farmall 55C to the Puma 240 CVX. The mid-spec U-series includes 14 models, and like the base A series and the top T series, the hydraulic pipework

is routed through the frame to protect against damage. Maximum heights from 3.5–4.5m and lift capacities from 1,210–2,230kg are available and the series is designed for everyday handling tasks and is available with mechanical self-levelling or in non-self-levelling versions, and to suit tractors from the Farmall 55C to the Puma 175. The A-series is an entry-level, lighter front loader for general handling and three models feature mechanical self-levelling and will suit tractors from the Farmall 55C to the Maxxum 140. Lift heights are from 3.5–4.0m and lift capacities are 1.3–1.7t. Shock Eliminator shock absorbing is standard on all the ranges. Hitching and unhitching is quick and easy through the FitLock 2+ system and the Mach System hydraulic coupler means

the loaders can be fitted or removed in less than one minute.

Part of the tractor The new loaders feature a logical numbering system: All start with L (for loader) then the next two digits indicate maximum lift height and the third and fourth digits indicate maximum lift capacity. The final letter denotes the series. Tractors specified with a loader from the factory share a common mounting bracket and the Mach System. Loader control and operation of third and fourth functions are through the tractor hydraulic valves and joysticks. The tractors also gain a robust cross bar and integrated engine hood guard. The new Case IH loaders benefit from the same warranty and product support as the tractors, including parts supply to ensure minimum downtime.

Farmalls updated For 2022, the Farmall tractor series consists of four models from 90–120hp. They meet Stage 5 emissions standards using a new engine. The 4-cyl, 3.6-litre power unit with four valves per cylinder and common rail fuel injection replaces the previous 3.4-litre version, adding approximately 5hp and 10% extra torque at only 1,300rpm. Exhaust emissions are controlled by SCR (AdBlue) and apart from adding the liquid there is no extra maintenance. Daily checks are conveniently completed from one side of the engine, saving time. Selection packs make it easy for dealers to stock models equipped to suit their trading area, and also provide a cost-effective package for

customers. These include Active Drive 2 transmission with powershuttle and powerclutch, providing 24x24 gears and with the option of cruise control and creeper ratios. Also in the package are front and rear axle electro-hydraulic diff locks, electronic draft control, a 64-litres/min hydraulic pump, threespeed PTO and optional front linkage.

Maxxum news The Maxxum line-up includes 13 models from 115–150hp with two engines and three transmissions. The flagship Maxxum 150 has a 6-cyl engine which has had a 5hp increase to 150hp (rated) output, while all other models have a 4-cyl power unit. There are three specification packages. Maxxum and Maxxum Multicontroller tractors can be ordered with the Selection package which includes commonly-specified options for general use, while Maxxum and Maxxum Multicontroller and Maxxum CVXDrive can also have the Advanced pack – with technology features for more demanding applications. Maxxum Multicontroller and CVXDrive models can also have the Professional package, with advanced technology to get the most from the tractor. The Maxxum has also had some styling improvements and getting into the cab is easier up new Case IH family style aluminium steps with integrated lighting. The cab interior is similar to before but has uprated trim and a new cooled storage compartment. The latest cabs also gain a phone mount, USB power outlets and a tablet mount. Forward vision is improved by a new wiper which sweeps 60% more

New Puma tractors are available in three versions – standard, Multicontroller and CVXDrive, all with improved cabs with extra features for enhanced comfort and productivity.

Puma short-wheelbase tractors gain new features introduced recently to Puma long-wheelbase models.

CVX transmission improved Maxxum CVXDrive models have improved drive control. Forward/ reverse shuttle, acceleration and deceleration response is enhanced and drive pedal sensitivity has been refined and cruise control speed override has been added. At the rear, new Maxxums have an improved hydraulic spool layout for more convenient hose connection and removal. There is better top-link stowage and new LED marker lights. The tractors also feature an air line connector for tyre inflation and cleaning.

Puma refresh Puma short-wheelbase 140–175 models gain additional features for 2022, many from recently updated Puma long-wheelbase 185–240 models. The series has three versions as before, including the base Puma 140–165, the Puma 150 and 165 Multicontroller models and Puma CVXDrive with CVT transmission with the flagship Puma 175CVX. The latest models have new Case IH family style aluminium steps for easier access and the cab gains a phone mount, USB power points and a tablet mount. On Multicontroller and CVXDrive models, the wiper is now at the base of the screen and provides a larger swept area and there is a cool box in the top of the dashboard. A new advanced joystick which includes direction shuttling and all loader controls will be a popular feature for loader tasks and will improve cycle times. Like the new Maxxums, the rear end is revised with improved top link stowage and the hydraulic connections are improved. LED lights and an air line connection are also included. CVXDrive versions gain transmission upgrades, and the Multicontroller has extra sensitivity

and position detection, with override of cruise control speeds available which will improve convenience during headland turns. Puma Multicontroller and

CVXDrive variants are available with Advanced or Professional equipment packages. Advanced pre-selects the most common features specified by current users, while Professional

focuses on AFS technology and is guidance-ready with the AFS Pro 700 terminal. The new Pumas will be available this spring. FG

A new groundcare display is being added this year, with the focus on battery-powered garden and amenity machinery including the latest robotic lawn mowers with GPS guidance and capable of maintaining large grass areas. A change to the chainsaw display by Stihl and Husqvarna will see the usual petrol-fuelled models replaced by battery versions – emphasising how far this sector of the market has developed in recent years.

Case IH

Construction specialist

Star attraction in the Ernest Doe Power, Case IH display area will be the new Optum AFS Connect, (featured in this issue on page 144). “We invested heavily in stock and placed forward orders at the start of 2021 so, despite the global machinery shortages, we can supply most models of Case IH tractors, combines, balers and telehandlers from stock or with just a short lead time,” explained general manager Ed Perry. “There will be special offers on many products and our sales team expects to be busy.”

Leading construction machinery brands are represented, including Hyundai excavators, Thwaites dumpers and Bomag rollers and compactors – for which Ernest Doe was the 2021 Dealer of the Year. Large stock commitments have meant supplies have continued, but Graham said that although general availability remains good, orders for some products are already being placed for spring and summer delivery this year. The usual Hyundai 360-degree excavator demonstration will run throughout the event. This year it will be equipped with a new Engcon rotator, allowing the operator to tilt, rotate and quickly swap attachments.

The 62nd Doe Show is due to take place between 1st–3rd February at the Ernest Doe & Sons Ltd Ulting main depot. Pictured (l-r) Graham Parker, Angus Doe, and Ed Perry.

The three-day show will take place at the Ulting, Chelmsford depot of Ernest Doe & Sons Ltd from Tuesday 1st to Thursday 3rd February. “We are delighted to be going back to a physical show, as we know that is what our customers want and, like every year, our team is working hard to make it bigger and better than ever,” explained managing director Angus Doe. “The Doe Show has always been known for attractive offers on new and used machinery, and customers will be able to find out about these before they attend through our show website, as well as at the event itself. Our team is looking forward to spending time with new and existing customers and discussing how we can support them through the coming year.”

videos of key products from the main franchises and providing an opportunity for customers to ‘attend’ the show without leaving their homes. “Feedback from those who used it was very positive, so this year we are offering a similar experience again, including videos and daily updates about the event through the website,” explained sales director Graham Parker.

Ex-demo and used bargains The huge selection of ex-display, ex-demonstration and second-hand machines, parts and accessories offered for sale at heavily discounted prices is always a major attraction. Last year a timed auction by Cheffins proved very successful and the vast majority of lots offered for bidding were sold. This year, the auction will run online again and include all the used equipment, while most of the 2021 model year clearance stock will be available to buy at the show. Where large stocks of similar clearance items are available – some will be sold at the event and the rest through the online auction. Subject to minimum values and buyers being within the dealer’s official trading area, delivery will be free. “As always the reserves are realistic and everything is there to be sold,” stressed Graham. “The timed auction starts on the 1st of February and continues until Monday the 8th, which means there is plenty of opportunity to visit the event and inspect the lots while the auction is in progress. A large screen will display the auction progress, and the Cheffins team will

Impressive results at Suffolk online dispersal sale

Attractive lots were available for bids during an online dispersal sale organised by Suffolk-based Clarke & Simpson.

A timed online dispersal sale of farm machinery, spares, tools and equipment used by a well-known Suffolk farming business achieved high prices and bids from across the UK and further afield. David Williams reports. The sale was organised by auctioneers Clarke & Simpson on behalf of the Miles family trading as Messrs John Miles & Sons, who have taken the decision to cease farming themselves and use a local contractor. Operating from their own 700ha holding at Great Ashfield, Suffolk, the family had built up a successful 1,200ha farming business, including 500ha on contract-farming agreements. A neighbouring farmer will now contract-farm the Miles’ own land, and the family’s contract-farming service for others has ended. The sale included a large selection of modern machinery, most of which was purchased new by farmer Stephen Miles. The farm fleet included four main tractors, a combine, a self-propelled sprayer, cultivators, trailers, and drills. There was also collectible older machinery plus parts and equipment available for bids, accumulated by four generations of the Miles family since arriving at Great Ashfield in 1900.

Online more certain Stephen said that when Clarke & Simpson offered the choice of an on-site sale or a timed online sale, the family agreed quickly to the online option. “Having decided in the spring that we would cease farming after harvest, we were keen to ensure the sale went ahead without a problem,” he explained. “There was uncertainty at that time about whether Covid-19 restrictions might return during the autumn, so we all felt choosing an online sale was safer. “Even though there were no

restrictions in place, we were very pleased with our decision to sell the machinery online. The weather was fine on the viewing days, but on the final morning of the online sale it poured, which wouldn’t have encouraged people to attend an on-site event. Many lots were bought by bidders a long distance away, who were able to bid from their homes or work and who might not have travelled to a sale. Online sales offer a lot of advantages, including for farmers busy with field work or other activities as they can place their bids while still working a full day on their own farms. The Clarke & Simpson team was superb from explaining how the online sale would work to ensuring that everything ran smoothly. From small sundry lots to the combine and sprayer the results were excellent, and I am very pleased that we chose to work with them.”

Exceeded expectations Clarke & Simpson auctioneer, James Durrant confirmed that the sale results exceeded all expectations. “We were delighted to act for the Miles family, and the high prices were testament to the way that they and their team looked after the machines, and the effort they made ensuring everything looked at its best for the sale. “The online auction attracted more than 9,000 bids from 600 bidders and approximately 200 of these succeeded in winning items,” he explained. “The online auction format worked very well and contributed to the success.” FG

This Challenger MT755E rubber-tracked crawler was an auction highlight. Registered in July 2015 it carried a 15-plate, and had arrived on the farm as an ex-demonstrator from local main dealer Thurlow Nunn Standen. The tractor had worked 3,720 hours, but a replacement engine had recorded only 2,520. The tracks and track rollers were in good condition. Front wafer weights were fitted plus front idler weights and the tractor had four double-acting spools, Isobus, Cat 4 linkage, a heavy-duty swinging drawbar and Trimble RTK guidance through a JFX750 display. The cab was tidy, and the Challenger sold for £55,000.

The farm’s Claas Lexion 770TT APS Hybrid twin-rotor combine was expected to sell well. It was on Camoplast tracks with 80% tread, and 500/85R30 rear tyres. It had 3d sieves, Cebis, upgraded screens, a chaff spreader, a straw chopper, twin cameras and single laser guided steering. It was new in August 2017 and arrived on the farm as an ex-demonstrator. It had recorded 1,290 total hours, 928 drum hours and had harvested 3,720ha. It came with its 10.8m Vario header and a four-wheel header trailer. The winning £180,000 bid was placed by a Worcestershire farmer.

High prices achieved for three Kverneland ploughs reflected their condition. (l-r) With original Thurlow Nunn Standen dealer stickers, an EG85 5+1f Vari-width reversible which was new in 2011 was equipped with a 300hp headstock and No8 bodies. The bodies had plenty of remaining working life and the plough made £11,000. Next to it – a 2009 LB85 5+1f Variwidth reversible with a 300hp headstock and No8 bodies was also very tidy and it sold for £7,600. The third plough – a smaller 4f Vari-width also had No8 bodies. It had a 240hp-rated headstock which had been repaired and new hydraulic hoses were needed. It sold for £2,200. Carrying its original Ernest Doe Power dealer stickers, this set of Dal-Bo Powerroll 1230 12.3m folding rolls was supplied new in 2016 and remained in superb condition. It had Snowflake breaker rings and a hydraulic mounting bracket for a slug pelleter, and sold for £16,000.

One of the older lots on offer, this wooden hanging cattle manger was solidly made and had iron rings to suspend it in each corner. Even with a dose of woodworm, it made £190.

On-farm from new, the Amazone Pantera 4502 4,800-litre sprayer was registered on a 16-plate in August 2016. The boom was 32m, but it could also be folded for spraying at 24m. The sprayer had worked 4,300 hours and was in excellent condition. It was sold with 380/90R46 row crop wheels and tyres with 60% tread, and 650/65R38 wheels and tyres with 80% tread. It had a 50kph transmission, a separate clean water pump, twin high flow spray pumps, single line booms, AmaSelect quad nozzle bodies with electronic switching, an AmaPad display and TopCon GPS guidance.

Cattle and sheep health: Trends for 2021 As recent research suggests lameness-related issues and endemic infectious disease continue to be the key factors affecting production efficiency on cattle and sheep farms, livestock editor Sarah Kidby spoke to farm vets for their views on health trends from 2021, and advice for the coming year. Grassroots research by Ruminant Health & Welfare suggests that a step change in progress is needed to tackle key animal health issues. For sheep, foot rot and contagious ovine digital dermatitis (CODD) scored highly, while for cattle, digital dermatitis and Johne’s disease were highlighted as major threats. Infectious bovine rhinotracheitis and bovine viral diarrhoea also ranked highly, though extreme IBR outbreaks appear to be less common and the BVD threat has subsided. Viral pneumonia pinpointed a recurring threat on many holdings, and fertility, mastitis and youngstock disease continue to be headline issues. Commenting on the impact of increasingly unpredictable weather, Phillip Jones from Willows Veterinary Group, part of VetPartners, noted that while 2021 was actually less problematic than the previous few years there was a longer grazing season due to mild weather. This will have been welcome in the short term but runs the risk of problems further down the line, he added. “I would expect – certainly in the first part of winter – that there might be an increase in worm burden compared to previous years. We’ve certainly seen a high level of lungworm cases. It’ll be interesting to see how that translates to later on in the winter, certainly going into January/February time.” How this affects disease prevalence early in 2022 will depend on weather conditions and how soon cows can be turned out. Mr Jones advises vigilance to ensure problems are detected earlier for better outcomes; generally at this time of year lots of faecal egg counts will be carried out for early identification and to inform responsible wormer use. To increase longevity of the herd and avoid some of the more serious disease issues, lots of clients will also have been vaccinating for respiratory disease at

housing. As lameness continues to be a key concern for cattle and sheep health and productivity, Will Gratwick (pictured right) from LLM Farm Vets emphasised the importance of regular mobility scoring to identify the level of lameness you have – as this is often underestimated. Then, engaging with vets and foot trimmers to come up with a plan to improve it. It’s important to note how much the cause varies from farm to farm, he added, so there is no ‘one size fits all’ solution. While some believe lameness issues are unavoidable, there are farms with very little lameness, Mr Gratwick noted. A key point is controlling digital dermatitis with an effective foot-bathing programme and routine preventative foot trimming, as well as identifying lame cows early.

Antibiotic use Despite a challenging year, the latest RUMA report revealed that livestock sectors have continued to make good progress on antibiotic use targets. Clinical director of Westpoint Farm Vets in Chelmsford, Ami Sawran (left), said the industry’s “decisive and successful effort” to reduce antibiotics should be “applauded”. She added: “It means that we are relying more on diagnostic tests, and preventative measures such as vaccination and effective biosecurity. As we endeavour to only use as little as possible, but as much as necessary, even more focus will be placed on proactive health planning alongside your vet. “This is also pertinent in terms of parasite management, as we have seen rather more extended ‘risk periods’ due to the milder

weather, meaning that there should be increased drive to monitor parasite burdens in all farmed species much earlier in spring, and further into winter than in previous years.”

Marked increase in vaccine uptake MSD Animal Health has, meanwhile, reported a demonstrable increase in uptake of key vaccinations for preventable ruminant livestock diseases, and a move towards prevention rather than cure. “The use of sheep vaccines has increased during 2021, fuelled in part by better than average lamb prices we suspect, but also by a recognition that it pays to invest in immunity-led disease prevention rather than rely on antibiotics,” commented MSD veterinary adviser Dr Kat Baxter-Smith (pictured below). “We have certainly seen strong growth from our clostridial disease and abortion vaccine portfolio, as well as increased adoption of vaccination as part of the Five-Point Plan to control sheep lameness.” Dr Baxter-Smith believes increased adoption of vaccines represents a step change by sheep producers who are trying to make their enterprises more resilient and productive. There has also been strong demand from cattle farmers in the autumn for respiratory disease vaccines. Relying on antibiotics to manage pneumonia outbreaks is no longer practical or desirable. “We do sense that with the drive to become more sustainable, the industry disease management momentum is now more firmly behind prevention rather than cure. Certainly, the farm vets we talk to on a daily basis are reporting more productive discussions about the value of vaccines.” Dr Baxter-Smith said it is “heartening” to see vaccine rates rising for a number of key diseases that “impact so negatively on farm profitability and sustainability”.

Rising number of dairy farmers turn to colostrum replacements to tackle Johne’s With 80% of Johne’s disease infections occurring within the first month of life, the growing threat of Johne’s in the UK is encouraging significant numbers of dairy farmers to offer bespoke colostrum replacements to newborn calves. to go with Provita’s Calf Colostrum Concentrate. And we haven’t looked back since. “Each calf born on the farm is now stomach tubed with the product immediately after birth. Making it up couldn’t be easier: it’s a case of mixing the powder with warm water, according to the straightforward instructions on the sachet. “The calf then receives mother’s colostrum for the following couple of days, as would be the normal procedure with a freshly calved cow and her calf.” According to John, the survival rate and vitality of the calves receiving the Provita product has increased manifold since the new colostrum feeding regime was introduced. “The difference truly is day and night. Problems related to premature mortality, scours and pneumonias have fallen away to almost nothing with calf survival rates up to weaning now at 98% of all births on the farm. “Opting to use the Provita Calf Colostrum Concentrate was one of the best decisions that we have taken on the farm over recent years.” Provita Calf Colostrum Concentrate provides a high level of natural EU-sourced colostrum,

with added egg powder proteins, beneficial bacteria and vitamins carried in a nutritional energy source. It is formulated to supplement colostrum from the dam or where access to natural colostrum has not been possible. With 2.5 billion beneficial bacteria per application, they physically exclude harmful pathogens from attaching to the gut wall and improve digestion. The product is high in fat soluble vitamins A, D and E to compensate for the inefficient placental transfer of these vitamins. Its nutritional base provides instant and slow-release 84611

Northern Ireland milk producer John McGaffin (pictured left), who farms with his father Hubert, milks 125 mainly autumn calving cows – a mix of Holstein and Ayrshires. The herd is currently averaging 8,800 litres per lactation, based on a three-timesper-day milking regime. “The milking cows are currently receiving 2.8t of concentrates per lactation,” John says. “We aim to produce and rear all our own replacement heifers.” The McGaffins are completely committed to giving all calves the best possible start, but up until a few months ago, they were having a significant problem with ill thrift and premature deaths in the calf house. John explains: “No matter what we tried, a significant number of the calves failed to meet the growth targets that we had set for them. “Johne’s is a growing problem on dairy farms across Northern Ireland. But that issue aside, I was always concerned that the colostrum produced by our cows wasn’t up to spec on all occasions.” He continues: “Some months ago, the decision was taken to feed a bespoke colostrum concentrate to each newborn calf. On the back of the research carried out, we opted

energy, allowing the calf to suckle quicker. It’s easy-mix formula makes it fast and practical to use. Provita technical advisor George Shaw (pictured right) recently visited the McGaffin farm. “The colostrum concentrate works at two levels. First off, it is a high-quality product that has consistently proven itself on farms over many years. It provides newborn calves with a high level of protection in order to maximise health and performance levels in the weeks directly after birth,” he comments. “Significantly, the product also acts to break the Johne’s cycle within a herd. Newborn calves are exposed to infection from the get-go, courtesy of their mother’s colostrum, assuming the dam is a Johne’s carrier.” George concludes: “Provita Colostrum Concentrate is guaranteed Johne’s-free. Its use allows milk producers to provide newborn calves with an exceptional level of cover without a reliance on mothers’ colostrum. Putting these animals on a subsequent milk replacer feeding programme should then act to completely break the Johne’s cycle within a herd.” Meanwhile, John and Hubert are committed to increasing the size of their herd. This has been facilitated by the recent purchase of freshly calved heifers. “Our intention is to push numbers up to 160 cows,” John explains. “We lost too many calves in the past, which has hindered our ability to produce a sufficient number of our own replacements. “Buying-in calved heifers is not a cheap option. The plan, looking ahead, is to produce all the herd replacements that we need here at home. And it is in this context that Provita Colostrum Concentrate will play such an important role.” For further information, contact Provita directly or visit: www.provita. FG

Vaccinate stock before grazing fodder beet Farmers planning to turn sheep and cattle onto fodder beet this winter are being encouraged to vaccinate stock against clostridial diseases before giving them access to the crop. Stock should also be transitioned onto fodder beet gradually, warns Iain McCormick, veterinary investigation officer with SRUC. “Fodder beet is a highly palatable, very digestible winter feed crop that has increased in

popularity on farms across the country. It’s certainly a useful ruminant grazing feed during the winter months when grass is short. This low dry matter crop is often utilised in situ; with the leaf tops containing higher levels of protein

172-191 Livestock COPY.indd 176

and macro-minerals compared to the bulbs, which have a high energy and sugar content,” he says. Unfortunately, however, Mr McCormick adds that it is not uncommon for younger cattle and/or hoggs/store lambs to suffer sudden death when first transitioned onto fodder beet. “The change of diet can be stressful for younger stock and be a trigger for clostridial organisms to multiply rapidly. On post-mortem investigation, we typically find a clostridial perfringens type D (pulpy kidney) overgrowth in the small intestine. This is caused by excessive sugars from the low dry matter fodder beet washing through the rumen rather than being converted there and – in combination with high water flows – provides an ideal environment for a clostridial overgrowth to occur.” Mr McCormick says that deaths can also occur in more resilient, older cattle, albeit later on once they have achieved maximum intakes. “This occurs typically three to four weeks after the transition period onto the fodder beet.” He adds that clostridial spores can also be found in the soil – which can be an exacerbating factor – and

means intakes of these harmful pathogens tend to be higher than with other feedstuffs. Mr McCormick advises farmers interested in feeding fodder beet to make sure sheep and cattle are vaccinated against clostridial diseases well before they are turned onto the crop – and to use an electric fence so that early transition intakes can be controlled. “Introduce stock to the crop gradually,” he says. “To protect stock health, vaccinate them beforehand,” he urges. “The clostridial disease vaccines available work well and are highly cost-effective. Farmers are particularly used to vaccinating pregnant ewes and later on their lambs once colostral immunity has waned, but it also makes sense to boost vaccination cover in the early winter prior to grazing any fodder beet. It’s well worth protecting cattle too to avoid any unnecessary stock losses.” Mr McCormick adds that acidosis, listeriosis and trace element imbalances can also be issues when grazing stock on fodder beet if they are not transitioned properly. Farmers wanting further advice should consult their vet. FG

R62 FAM was first developed during the foot-and-mouth outbreak and over the decades has been reformulated into the widely used FAM30.

Sixty years of helping to prevent infection in agriculture British family business Evans Vanodine International Plc is celebrating 60 years in the agricultural industry in 2022, having provided hygiene and disinfection chemicals, as well as research and knowledge, for the prevention of infection since 1962. We take a look at the company’s history… Evans Vanodine was first established in 1919 by William Charles Evans, under the title W.C. Evans & Co. in Salford, Manchester. The premises was comprised of two rooms; a small laboratory and an office. Today, Evans Vanodine is based in Preston, Lancashire, where the company’s modern 100,000 square foot factory, standing on a five-acre site, includes three state-of-the-art laboratories, in addition to extensive manufacturing and warehousing facilities. The in-house laboratories ensure the products clients receive are of the highest quality, comply with industry regulations and meet any claims made, and have built Evans a reputation in the industry for innovation and commitment to research and development. In-house microbiologists and chemists enable the business to deliver quality and consistency at every stage of production. The microbiology laboratory holds UKAS accreditation for the testing of disinfectants, ensuring products are effective and that virucidal and bactericidal claims are substantiated by BS EN test methods. Evans Vanodine says it believes in manufacturing consistent, efficient, and cost-effective products whilst maintaining optimum quality across all divisions. It is a BSI-registered company which operates to ISO 9001 for quality compliance and ISO 14001 for environmental compliance. The company produces an extensive range of cleaning and disinfection products for multiple applications for the industrial, janitorial, food process and animal health sectors which are currently sold in over 85 countries worldwide. Evans is one of very few companies manufacturing products

which give hygiene security from the farm to the fork.

From FMD breakthrough to modern-day chemicals Evans researches, develops and manufactures a diverse range of livestock protection chemicals for poultry, pig and dairy producers. It is a world-leading manufacturer of dairy teat dips and animal disinfectants and its products have been extensively tested against all the major virus and disease-causing microorganisms which affect livestock. In 1962, it released its Iodine Bulk Tank cleaner, R62, which marked the beginning of the business’s involvement in the livestock protection sector. Five years later in 1967, the foot-and-mouth outbreak devastated UK industries, and resulted in the formulation of R62 FAM, which was developed by the late Mr Derek Evans. The Animal Virus Institute at Pirbright, which was recognised by the Ministry of Agriculture as the world’s leading authority on foot-and-mouth, found that the disinfectant inactivated the foot and mouth virus within 12 seconds, whereas previously available government-approved products took an average of four-and-a-half hours. Over the decades, FAM was reformulated and improved many times and became the widely used ‘FAM30’ we know today; it is considered to be the finest disinfectant of its type across the world, Evans says.

Continuing an early vision An integral component of the company has always been chemical research and development, since

Evans Vanodine’s founder William Evans and his son, the late Mr Derek Evans, both set out as chemists. Their vision was for Evans to develop its own products, rather than rely on others to determine the quality of goods. This is a value the company still holds true today, as the Evans family, who still run the business, maintain their legacy with the fifth generation of the Evans family helping to pave the way for the future of the business and of infection prevention. It is not without the help of dedicated

employees – who are the business’s greatest asset and play a vital part in its success and growth – that the company would achieve the milestones and accolades it has. This includes two Queen’s Awards for Enterprise, in the category of international trade, in 2015 and 2020, and Family Business of the Year in 2021 at the Chamber of Commerce BIBAs. In addition to its products, Evans Vanodine provides a variety of technical services. It shares knowledge and international expertise with distributors and customers, ensuring the most up-to-date and efficient methods of cleaning and disinfection are being used throughout the livestock industry. The extensive product range is complimented by the hands-on approach offered, from technical support and farm visits, comprehensive literature, support materials and micro profiles, to the in-house testing facilities – providing farms with the tools and expertise to implement a successful and effective hygiene programme.

Livestock 1,000kg of live weight/ha, with our cattle making up a big proportion of this. One of the key attributes of the Aberdeen Angus breed is its ability to convert grazed grass to meat, so again a big plus point for our system.”

Making the most of every sward

Grassland management at forefront of Aberdeen Angus system At the award-winning Trefnant Hall Farm, making the most of every sward is the priority for creating a profitable beef and sheep enterprise. The 200ha rented farm in Welshpool is run by Marc Jones, the 2021 winner of the British Grassland Society Grassland Farmer of the Year competition, who focuses on achieving the highest number of kilos of beef produced per hectare. “To maintain a profitable business, we need to adopt an approach which suits our land,” says Mr Jones. “For us, that means making the most of every hectare, and finishing our cattle and sheep off grass, with minimal additional inputs.” Mr Jones and his family run a herd of 700 Aberdeen Angus dairy-cross cattle, alongside 630 New Zealand Romney sheep. “We lamb outdoors from the 1st April, selling our lambs to Tesco via Kepak. The flock is outwintered on fodder beet with the aim of rearing 1.45 lambs per ewe to a target carcass weight of 19.5kg off grass,” he explains. “On the beef side, we buy in 350 Aberdeen Angus cross dairy heifer calves every autumn at three weeks of age. The calves are reared through the first winter, where they are transferred from milk and ad lib concentrates to high quality grass silage before turnout. The cattle are then grazed at grass before being wintered on fodder beet for their second winter. Finally, they’re turned back

onto grass in the spring to be finished at 22-24 months. “The aim is to finish off grass,” he notes. “For the cattle, our target is to achieve a lifetime gain of at least 0.7kg daily live weight gain (DLWG) in order to achieve a carcass weight of around 300kg.”

Choosing a breed fit for the future Mr Jones first introduced Aberdeen Angus genetics in 2017. “We chose Aberdeen Angus genetics initially because of the premium offer by the end market – it stacks up for us with our dairy cross genetics. Aberdeen Angus beef is also renowned for its high meat-eating quality, which means there’s always a demand for our meat. Every penny counts, so having a breed that is known as a ‘brand’ in its own right by the consumer, is a sensible business decision. “The genetic make-up of the cattle also suits our system, allowing us to produce the best beef we can,” he adds. One key performance indicator (KPI) at Trefnant Hall Farm is kilos of meat per hectare. “We aim across beef and lamb to produce

The topography of Trefnant Hall means grass forms the foundation of the system. “We’re on rented land on two farms ranging from 185–340m above sea level, so we have to base our business model on good grassland and forage management,” says Mr Jones. “We’re happy with the number of animals we’re rearing, so it’s all about maximising the production of what we have.” As part of the GrassCheck project, weekly grass measurements are taken so performance is monitored and benchmarked. “We’ve used this data to tweak the leys we grow, adding in more herbal mixes. We now include cocksfoot, chicory, white clover and plantain as well as red clover to support the young cattle growth.” Alongside the permanent pasture, 22.5ha of fodder beet is grown for cattle and sheep to be out-wintered on. “For our silage, we grow around 16ha of shortterm leys which are silaged and clamped ready for the winter to feed our weaned calves. Longterm leys are used for round bale silage to feed cattle when they’re on the fodder beet. In a good year, we hope to get 650 bales from 40ha. “It’s all about making small improvements for big gains, and we’ve found that paying close attention to what goes into our cattle and sheep is shown in the end result,” he concludes.

Livestock Mobile sheep handling system praised by farmers

Climate-proofing livestock housing According to the Met Office, we can expect warmer and wetter winters in future, with cold and dry winters occurring some years. Galebreaker southern sales manager Matt Sellers frequently speaks to farmers who are already noticing climate-related changes: “Almost weekly, farmers tell me they’re seeing new disease problems or a drop in productivity in housed livestock, despite the fact they’ve used the same shed for years.” Mr Sellers explains: “High winds during winter, for example, can mean cows experience the cold, where weatherproofing systems are not in place. To counteract this, cows will naturally eat more to keep themselves warm, but this will often result in a drop in feed conversion efficiency.”

The most cost-effective approach to climate-proofing housing depends on how long livestock are housed, Mr Sellers reckons. “For livestock that are indoors all year, I’d start by optimising ventilation, then look at weatherproofing solutions to protect against wind and rain. A well-ventilated shed creates a dry and comfortable environment in which livestock breathe fresh air, reducing the risk of disease. “For sheep which are typically only housed for a couple of months during lambing, I’d suggest using flexible weather proofing solutions, as weather conditions are likely to increasingly vary from one year to the next. Bayscreens, which block wind and rain and can be taken up and down as needed, are ideal.” FG

Since its launch in 2020, the new Stockpen UK mobile sheep handling system has had a “fantastic” response from sheep farmers, according to Stockpen managing director Edward Finney. Many customers have praised the system for its high quality and said they would recommend it to other farmers, Mr Finney adds. The system comes with three options to choose from. The standard system holds 150 sheep and all systems come complete with 16mm lugs and pins, as well as: • Fully sheeted sheep race • Sheep shedder • 16ft sheeted race • Race joiner • Guillotine • Ten 10ft panels, eight-barred and double-strapped. Options two and three also come with three sheep dividers (two access points and a race stopper) – one in the sheeted race, one in the holding pen and one at the access point at the rear.

In addition, option three comes with an extra ten 10ft panels, eight-barred and doublestrapped, making a 100ft holding pen with two access points. Stockpen UK supplies high quality, heavy-duty sheep handling gates, mobile cattle systems, mobile sheep handing systems, stockyard and calving gates, delivered nationwide. All products have a hot dipped galvanised finish and gates are eight-railed for multi-use of small and large livestock – meaning one system is versatile to cover all applications.

TB Advisory Service expands its remit As the TB Advisory Service (TBAS) expands to other susceptible species, Dr Ami Sawran, clinical director for Westpoint Farm Vets in Chelmsford, provides an update on the scheme and how it can benefit farmers. Some may be aware that TBAS, which aims to deliver bespoke biosecurity advice to cattle farmers in England, has now been expanded to include keepers of other TB susceptible

species such as sheep, pigs, goats and camelids. The first TBAS project, focused only on cattle, was found to have had a hugely positive impact on farmer

attitudes to mitigating their TB risks, with 91.9% of recommendations rated ‘very useful’ and 89.8% rating the service ‘excellent’. It should come as welcome news therefore, that the newly expanded service will also be offered in ‘low risk’ areas of England. Input from several different veterinary groups (including VetPartners and IVC Evidensia) and a consortium of independent practices means that keepers’ own private vets will have the opportunity to train as TBAS advisors, in the knowledge that the materials have been designed with a diverse range of species and situations in mind. TBAS aims to empower keepers to identify areas where biosecurity measures can be put in place, or enhanced, to reduce the risk of TB on the holding. This is achieved with two visits from a trained veterinary advisor (free of charge), where areas for improvement can be identified, prioritised and advice tailored to the holding. Attention will be given to preventative measures, risk-management, and contingency planning, alongside an empathetic vet who understands the species you keep, and the type of industry the holding is involved

in. This is a huge opportunity to gather information about what the farming community at large employs in terms of biosecurity, and how well the threat and control of TB is understood. Engaging with the service will hopefully be enlightening and rewarding, as it aims to empower keepers of TB susceptible species to believe that eradication is within reach, and that there are tangible, affordable changes that can be made to protect stock, whether for commercial or hobby purposes. Eligible species owners with a CPH number will be able to access these services free of charge soon, so keep an eye on the TBAS website ( and register your interest. Vets with an interest in becoming trained as a TBAS advisor are also encouraged to get in touch. FG

Q&A: Automation in the poultry sector As labour shortages pose serious challenges to farmers, livestock editor Sarah Kidby spoke to Vencomatic technical director Ben McGill about advances in automation and how one new product is providing a quick return on investment.


Are you seeing more interest in automation and do you think this will continue? A: Yes, I started with Vencomatic and


Prinzen just over five years ago and automation has always been a hot topic for discussion, but the emphasis has moved further now into automatic palletising and so on. It’s not just a case of improving efficiency or reducing labour; health and safety is key for farmers employing staff, as repetitive lifting can be quite a big ask.

Talk us through Vencomatic’s new Meggsius range... A: It’s made up of four products. Meggsius Detect is a leaker detection unit that sits between the main cross conveyor and packing equipment. It detects the leaking egg and stops the packer and the conveyor, reducing cleaning time and avoiding contamination of other potentially grade A eggs. The next two products work hand-inhand – Meggsius Count and Meggsius Control. The Meggsius Count is a camerabased counting system that uses cameras positioned over each of the egg belts coming out of the house to count eggs. If you pair that with the Meggsius Control system, it uses information from the cameras to automatically vary the speeds of the egg belts to deliver a consistent flow of egg at a required capacity to the packing machine. Meggsius Select is a camera-based grading system that effectively does the job an operator would do. It will automatically remove eggs based on several criteria including dirt, shape, and size to name a few.


How did the range come to be developed? A: The Meggsius family aims find out what causes the differences in production. If we were to take two birds on different laying farms, each from the same rearing farm, same parent flocks, identical as far as we can make them, why would one achieve its biological or genetic potential in terms of production, while the other would not? Gathering data is the first step, but once we’re able to interpret this it becomes useable information. As an example, if we take the volume of second-class eggs coming out of a farm, the farmer needs to know the quantity of seconds and if that increases, but also why it’s increasing. Taking all of the Meggsius products in combination, we’re able to point out where a specific nest section may be causing a higher quantity of seconds, so you can check to see if it’s something as simple as a leaky nipple drinker causing a dirty nest mat.

How can the range improve efficiency? A: For the quickest improvement on efficiency, the Meggsius Detect gives a very quick return on investment and is probably the most cost effective too. By stopping leaking eggs, it reduces time spent cleaning, so that’s a labour saving, but it also reduces contamination of what would otherwise be grade A eggs that you would be paid more for. Due to its low cost of initial investment, the Detect has been doing very well and the feedback from farmers, not just in


the UK but globally for Prinzen, has been very positive. So much so that now we are offering it as standard, integrated with all new packing machines. It’s also still available as a retrofit.

What is the biggest barrier to farmers adopting automation? A: Initial investment is always going to be a discussion point for farmers. We can justify this in reduced labour, reduced seconds and improved production. If we can identify issues and improve production rather than just maintaining it, then you can see the returns on a long-term investment. It’s not an investment that you’re going to see a return on maybe inside the first two years but over the lifespan of the equipment, the returns are much higher. Quick ROI is quite simple with the Detect, however.

For farmers investing in further automation, what features are important to look out for? A: The labour side of things is important at the moment so anything that can reduce time spent packing eggs. It’s an important part of the job, of course, but at the same time it doesn’t need to take all day. It’s not necessarily just time that can be saved so the staff or farmer can finish earlier in the day, but actually finishing the job of packing earlier and spending more time with the birds – which would be a priority from my perspective.

A clean, green solution for disinfection Ozone disinfection technology from Oxi-Tech brings dairy farmers safe, affordable, and environmentally sustainable sanitation, whilst relieving the burden of having to handle dangerous and unpleasant chemicals in the parlour. It is proven to eradicate biofilms, bacteria, viruses, fungi and protozoa, including some that chlorine will not, such as Cryptosporidium. Dairy farms are leading the way in sustainability and productivity expectations of the modern farm. Dairy farmers need assured biosecurity in the parlour, to reduce cow-to-cow infections and yield a bulk milk product with low microbial counts, excellent quality, and one that therefore commands the best price. Oxi-Tech’s disinfection process allows 24/7 disinfection for Clean in Place (CIP) and cluster flushing of any automated or semi-automated

dairy parlour 365 days a year. It uses no consumable chemicals; the unique patented system uses only water and low-voltage electricity to create the disinfectant, which is the most powerful and environmentallyacceptable industrial oxidant, Oxi-Tech says. Once ozone has undertaken disinfection, any remaining simply reverts to oxygen, providing disinfection without leaving residues (such as chlorate) in the milk, the equipment or the environment. No consumable chemicals means no transportation, storage or handling of disinfection chemicals, and none of the risk from chemical burns, spills or releases. This new award-winning technology is available with a £15,000 grant towards your system if you apply before 7th January 2022 ( FG

Fertilisers & Spreaders

The popular Axis series twin disc spreaders from Kuhn have a 50m maximum spreading width.

Power on the land The topic for this month’s Power on the Land is crop feeding, brought to you as always by Mike Williams. The challenges for engineers who design fertiliser spreaders include producing an even distribution pattern with improved uniformity while achieving the required application rates, and progress from some manufacturers has been impressive. Performance features available in the Lemken spreader range include Econov – a GPS linked system that adjusts the application rate for each of the 12 width sections to achieve high levels of accuracy. Econov is included on high specification Polaris series spreaders at the top of the Lemken range offering up to 4,000-litre hopper capacity with spread width adjustment up to 50m. The Lemken range offers mounted spreaders in three series starting with the Spica models with hoppers holding up to 2,100 litres and a 24m maximum spread width, plus the mid-range Tauri series, and all models feature Lemken’s Fertiway control system that adjusts the drop point on to the disc to vary the spread width. An addition to the options list on Lemken’s Polaris series spreaders is Speed Control, adjusting the distribution pattern automatically to compensate for changes in forward speed. The options list for both Polaris and Tauri series spreaders also includes the Tribord control system to adjust the spread width close to field boundaries. Kuhn spreaders include trailed models as well as three different mounted series with hopper sizes from 500–9,400 litres. The entry level mounted sprayers are the MDS series holding up to 2,000 litres and with 24m maximum spread width, and Kuhn

also offers UKS Universal Spreaders in widths up to 2.3m for specialised use in areas such as vineyards and small-scale vegetable cropping. The big selling Axis mounted sprayers have twin-disc spreading widths up to 50m. They feature the EMC or Electronic Massflow Control which checks the application rate for each of the six width sections at one-second intervals. EMC also features on the Kuhn Axent trailed model which has a 50m maximum spread width and 9,400-litre load capacity. Also in the trailed category is Kuhn’s Aero GT pneumatic boom spreader with 30, 32 and 36m working widths. The Aero spreader has a metering unit and a seed roller for each of the six width sections and is said to be capable of achieving a 400ha daily work rate. Amazone also offers both mounted and trailed spreaders with a comprehensive choice of capacities and features. A recent development is adding the new TS spread system available on the ZA-TS mounted sprayer and the trailed ZG-TS model, both designed to offer a 54m spread width and with a specification that also includes Amazone’s ClickTS border spreading control plus the Wind Control system. Hopper capacities for the trailed TS spreaders are up to 4,200 litres, increasing to 10,000-litres maximum for the trailed ZG-TS with a 30kph maximum working speed. Amazone spreader choices start with ZA-X Perfect mounted models with hopper sizes from 600–1,750 litres and up to 18m spread width, and the hopper size range increases to 3,000

Hopper capacities up to 3,750 litres are available on mid-range M35 Plus series spreaders from KRM.

litres maximum with up to 36m spread width for the ZA-M models. There is also a ZA-V mounted series with up to 4,200 litres capacity and working speeds up to 30kph. Another Amazone option is the Pneumatic trailed ZG-B series carrying between 5,500 and 8,200 litres and equipped for boom spreading with the ProfisPro control system using continuous weighing to monitor the application rate. The M60W model at the top of the KRM mounted spreader range has 42m maximum spread width and the biggest payload currently available with 6t capacity. The W in the model identity shows weigh cell equipment is included, a feature available on all but the entry level L15 model. Weigh cells are part of the Intelligent Control System providing continuous weight checking while eliminating incorrect data due to uneven ground conditions or side slopes. The mounted spreader range starts with the L15 holding up to 1,300 litres and with up to 18m spread width, the L20 and L20W hold up to 2,050 litres, increasing to 3,750 litres maximum for the M35 and M35W and to 4,500 litres for the M45 and M45W. A special feature available on the mounted spreaders is the NAVI App tablet providing GPS-based spread control that can work with a number of control boxes. KRM also offers a range of trailed spreaders including some that are suitable for fertiliser as well as more specialised machines for distributing various materials including lime and rock salt. Fertiliser spreading faces increasing competition as some farms switch to organic crop production methods, and the equipment available for handling and spreading livestock manures and slurry becomes increasingly efficient. Hi-Spec Engineering is among the leading suppliers of spreaders for manure and slurry, including slurry tankers in single, twin and tripleaxle versions, and it also offers two SideSpreader models using a series of flail chains to spread manure or slurry

or a mixture of both. The ability to use one machine to spread any type of livestock manure can be beneficial on many farms, and this is also a feature of the Hi-Spec Xcel 1250 spreader that uses flail chains to break up solid lumps. The contents are spread by spinning discs at the rear, with up to 20m spread width, and this eliminates the need for beaters and beater bars for spreading while achieving a fast discharge time which is typically 3–5 minutes for a 12t load. Recent news from SlurryKat includes the launch of its Premium Plus Super Tanker range with capacities ranging from 7,750–25,000 litres and including single, tandem and triple axle versions. It offers an impressive list of new and improved features including high performance vacuum pumps for faster filling, the axle specifications and braking have both been updated, chassis improvements have been added and the new drawbar suspension system provides a smoother ride. The attachment systems for mounting distribution equipment have been updated, the baffle arrangement to reduce surge movements inside the tank is improved, and the latest specification also benefits from a modified mudguard design and improvements to the paint finish, while the weight of the boom for working over hedgerows has been reduced.

The recently introduced TS version of Amazone’s ZA series mounted spreaders includes a 54m maximum spread width.

Fertilisers & Spreaders

Turning to tech to offset rising input costs With soaring input prices putting farm profit margins under yet more pressure, farmers must once again find new ways to improve production efficiencies. For crop-based systems – whether arable or grassland – the use of technology could help to partially offset these cost increases by ensuring fertiliser is applied accurately and effectually. “Input costs have risen sharply across the board in recent months, with prices for nitrogen as high as £650/t,” explains Jack Harris of LH Agro. “At that price, growers who haven’t yet purchased fertiliser for 2022 are questioning whether they can afford to, with those that bought before the price spike also wondering how to make the best use of their commodities. “What bonds both groups is the need to maximise production efficiencies by making the best use of available inputs, especially as there are no obvious signs of when prices might return to ‘normal’.” Mr Harris suggests that precision farming technologies can help to ensure inputs are used as effectively as possible: “The benefits of auto-steering and implement guidance systems are well documented, with improved accuracy and reduced drilling overlaps and misses at the crop establishment phase a given,” he explains. “But precision farming technologies can also improve the accuracy of fertiliser and spray applications later in the cropping calendar, with satellite imagery, field mapping and real-time crop sensors enabling growers to ensure inputs such as fertiliser are only applied where and when they are needed.”

On-the-go assessment Cab-mounted crop sensors such as the Topcon CropSpec system measure the light reflectance of plants at each field pass to monitor the in-field variability of crops and to provide an on-the-go assessment of where and when nutrients should be applied. And because they aren’t affected by cloud

Accurate field mapping enables farm managers to make informed management decisions and to plan future input purchases more effectively.

Same Field \ More Yield

“It’s now the only source of sulphur we use” Topcon’s cab-mounted CropSpec sensors assess plant reflectance ‘on the go’ to ensure nutrients are applied at the right rate, the right time and in the right place.

cover which can reduce the accuracy and reliability of satellite-based mapping systems, they provide a more up-to-date and accurate assessment of the crop’s actual condition and progress. “Pairing a variable rate and section control enabled fertiliser spreader or sprayer with a system like CropSpec takes the guesswork out of input applications and ensures the right product is applied at the right rate, the right time and in the right place,” Mr Harris continues. To illustrate the point, Mr Harris refers to a recent convert from fixed to variable rate applications who has been able to reduce liquid fertiliser applications by almost 15%. “Prior to installing CropSpec sensors the grower was applying 8,854 litres of liquid fertiliser to a 23.61ha block,” Mr Harris explains. “That volume has now been reduced to 7,689 litres – a saving of 1,165 litres. Even at last year’s prices, that represented a saving of almost £500 just for that field. At today’s prices, the savings are even greater.”

Remote management As well as making live or real-time application rate and section control adjustments, the data gathered by cabmounted sensors can also be used to create field-specific prescription input maps for the remainder of the season. “With the Topcon Agriculture Platform (TAP) this data download can be done wirelessly as soon as the field has been travelled thereby enabling farm managers and agronomists to make quick, but informed management decisions and to plan future input purchases more effectively,” Mr Harris continues. “TAP can also be used to pass mapping information and variable rate application files back to the field and can be used to adjust the spreader or sprayer’s settings remotely, thereby taking the onus of applying valuable inputs away from less experienced operators.” FG

Cost effective P, Mg and S fertiliser Farmers can avoid spiraling fertiliser costs by sourcing agricultural lime rich in phosphate, magnesium and sulphur at a modest price during the 2021/22 sugar beet campaign. LimeX – a proven pH balancer and soil conditioner, approved by the Soil Association for organic use – is available through backloading, providing efficient cost-effective haulage from sugar factory to farm. LimeX leaves the factory with inherent nutritional value equating to at least £16 worth of phosphate, magnesium and sulphur for every tonne of LimeX spread at current fertiliser prices. “Careful management of your soil pH is the key to ensuring the

nutrients within your soil are at the most available to the plant,” says Glenn Carlisle, LimeX business manager. “And, because our product has such fine and consistent particle size it’s very fast acting and more efficient at raising pH and available calcium levels than ordinary ground limestone. “With an additional benefit of 9kg of phosphate, 8kg of magnesium and 6kg of sulphur in every tonne, farmers can cut out a huge proportion of their fertiliser costs

whilst keeping on top of their liming.” James Forrest, who farms 1,600ha near Stowmarket in Suffolk, has been using lime for years to improve soil condition. “I use LimeX most years because I believe it is a very good product with the added benefit of additional nutritional value. There is no doubt in my mind it brings benefits to our crop rotation.” James’ farming business is focused around wheat, barley, bean and grass

seed production, as well as sugar beet, winter and spring barley, rape, triticale, maize, parsley, beans and silage – in addition to Red Poll sucklers. James applies LimeX in conjunction with a range of organic manures like farm yard manure, green waste, bio solids and occasionally poultry manure. “It fits very well within our manuring management. I moved to an emphasis on organic materials years ago to reduce our reliance on artificial fertilisers,” says James. “I like the fact that LimeX is a coproduct of sugar manufacturing – rather than quarried. The fact we get it delivered as a backload on sugar beet deliveries to the factory makes so much sense in terms of haulage efficiency.” You don’t have to grow beet to be a LimeX customer. LimeX supplies over 250,000t of product to farmers across the UK and Ireland every year. “At a time of challenge within the haulage industry we’re encouraging customers to consider backloading LimeX when sugar beet is delivered, to maximise haulier efficiency and achieve a least-cost transport solution,” concludes Glenn.

Update to popular spreader ranges Amazone’s renowned ZA-X and ZA-M spreader ranges have received technical and cosmetic upgrades for the 2022 spreading season. These popular, entrylevel spreaders now enjoy a new appearance that brings them in line with the ZA-V and ZA-TS premium range spreaders and gives them a new, modern feel. At the business end of the spreaders, both models will now be available in the Easy format. The EasySet 2 in-cab control box gives the driver push-button control over the shutter on/off on the headland from the tractor seat – either to both sides or to each side individually, has the ability to adjust the application rate on the move, again individually on

each side, as well as documenting the area covered, time taken and theoretical kilos spread. Easy also offers simplified rate calibration and, more importantly, forward speedrelated application rate control by having direct connect to the tractor’s speed output. This means that the application rate will be maintained irrespective of tractor gear chosen. Increased work rates of up to 25% can then be achieved by being able to set the forward speed to suit the ground conditions and the length of runs in the field. On the headland, the position of the Limiter headland spread device is monitored on the Easy control box display. FG

Fertilisers & Spreaders

Calibrating spreaders has never been more important

Gaining the best return from valuable nutrients will require more attention than normal to spreader calibration, say Origin Fertilisers and Spreader & Sprayer Testing Ltd (SCS). Imports of nitrogen fertilisers, to meet the needs of Britain’s farmers, are likely to come from a wider range of manufacturers than normal and potentially be more variable in size and spreading characteristics. Recent headlines have focused on UK and European nitrogen producers reducing or turning off production facilities after record gas cost increases. Coupled with strong global demand for all fertilisers plus spiralling shipping costs, the whole fertiliser supply chain is under considerable strain. Origin Fertilisers has focused on securing new supplies of both calcium ammonium nitrate and ammonium nitrate for its 12 UK sites to secure

adequate supplies for UK farmers and growers with as much choice as possible. Each year, British farmers typically use 4 million tonnes, of which about 25% is manufactured in GB, 60% imported from Europe and 15% from the rest of the world. Even if farmers reduce their nitrogen application in line with RB209’s economic optimum, more imported product is likely to be needed compared to a normal year. “Normally, Origin purchases nitrogen from suppliers where we have existing long-term partnerships and supply our customers with tried and tested products,” explained Origin Fertilisers’ managing director,

Michael Pater. “However, with many curtailing production and strong demand from their home and emerging fertiliser markets, we have had to secure supplies from further afield to ensure a continued supply of nitrates for our customers.” Importing from a wider geography and range of companies may lead to increased variability in granule colour, size, density and crush strength and farmers are advised to check and calibrate their spreader for each delivery, especially if deliveries span several weeks. Origin Fertilisers is working alongside calibration experts SCS to help gain a better understanding of the characteristics of different sources of imported nitrogen. While an ‘off-the-shelf’ spreader setting may not be possible for the analysis delivered to farm, understanding the characteristics of the raw material will help SCS give more informed advice. Explained SCS’ Rob Foxall: “Farmers spend thousands of pounds buying essential nutrients for their crops, and then don’t necessarily spend a comparatively small amount to find the optimum application settings. “With the high value of fertiliser this

year, and potentially more variable in size and characteristics than previous years, setting the spreader correctly will give farmers the best return on an expensive investment.” SCS is part of the National Fertiliser Spreader Testing Scheme and offers a range of services to help farmers set their spreaders correctly – covering one of its team visiting the farm to set up the spreader to kits to help you do it yourself. SCS offers four parts to every tray test: • An MOT-style test involving a thorough examination of the machine and all its working parts to make sure it is working correctly before the tray test • A check of the fertiliser characteristics – including bulk density, crush strength and size – which determine how the product spreads and can identify variation between batches • A full-width tray test with material being collected and a Coefficient of Variation calculated, tray testing until an acceptable spread pattern is achieved ensuring the application is as even as possible across the crop • Detailed report of the findings. FG

Current global fertiliser supply means that it’s vital to get the most out of every granule. Now you can create windless fertiliser spreading conditions at the ‘touch of a button’ for a wider application window and increased accuracy. Winds can be strong or light, blow from different directions, a constant speed one moment and in gusts the next - so the effect of the wind on the spread pattern never stays the same. Now available across the ZA-TS mounted and ZG-TS trailed spreaders range - the NEW standalone Amazone WindControl system means that the effect of the wind on the spread pattern is permanently monitored and automatically compensated for. More clever thinking from Amazone.

Fertiliser portfolio “perfect” for growers’ demands

Fertiliser spreader range offers models to suit any needs The product range of fertiliser spreaders from Lemken have been performing well in the UK and Ireland. The three ranges on offer – Spica, Tauri and Polaris – come with tank volumes from 900–4,000 litres and a broad range of control options, from a basic version through to 100% Isobus. The new fertiliser spreaders meet the most stringent requirements regarding precision of application and economy. Comfortable setting options guarantee that fertiliser is applied precisely and economically, comments Lemken UK’s general manager, Paul Creasy. The Lemken fertiliser spreaders are therefore high-quality products which optimally compliment the company’s existing product portfolio in tillage, sowing and crop care. The entry level Spica model offers

tank volumes from 900–2,100 litres and working widths of up to 24m, making the Spica ideal for smaller growers. The mid-range Tauri offers a large loading volume of up to 3,000 litres. This implement delivers higher fertilising efficacy through large working widths of up to 36m. Equipment such as the weighing system, width section control and Isobus preparation make the Tauri 12 not only highly precise but also very comfortable to operate, the company reckons. The range-topping Polaris machines offer working widths of up to 50m and tank volumes of up to 4,000 litres, as well as sophisticated technology such as the Epsilon spreader vane system or the GPSsupported Econov section control system.

New high-capacity sprayer better utilised on liquid fertiliser Switching to a liquid fertiliser application system from a twindisc granular spreader is paying dividends for a Lincolnshire farmer, whose company is now more efficient, cost effective, time flexible and has an improved environmental profile. James Burton (pictured) of D and B Farming Co Ltd, Leasingham near Sleaford, farms a 162ha arable enterprise that follows a winter wheat and barley rotation. Wheat yields on the mixed clay to sand soils average 9.8t/ha. Land is rented out for maize, which is grown for the local Holdingham Biogas digester, as well as spinach and potatoes. The business also operates a 2,023ha contract farming business and includes a number of small and large farming operations in the area. A key focus for James and his brother Simon is to provide a professional and costeffective nutrition and pesticide application service to new and existing customers. Five years ago, the farm made a conscious decision to switch to Omex liquid fertiliser because it wanted to better utilise an existing sprayer, improve efficiencies and to remove the problem of fertiliser bag disposal and fertiliser storage. At the time, the sprayer was a John Deere 5430i 24m 4,000-litre self-propelled machine. This has since been replaced by a 36m, 5,000-litre John Deere 4050. The business is now totally liquid, so the sprayer is applying fertiliser and pesticides to more than 19,000 ha/year. “The biggest benefit of switching to liquid fertiliser is the extra daily output and a reduction in labour and machinery,” says James. “Fertiliser application is now only a two-man operation, with me on the sprayer plus the bowser operator.” The addition of the 1,800-litre bowser has seen output increase to

200ha/day comfortably. “Maximum daily output achieved on granular was only 150ha,” he says. “The bowser has a 1,200-litre/min pump on it, which takes 15 minutes to fill, so turnaround is significantly quicker than having to empty heavy bags individually into the spreader.”

Visual improvement James says that visually his crops have changed dramatically since switching fertiliser system. He doesn’t need to worry about the moisture levels anymore either. In the past, spreading granular fertiliser in dry conditions could seriously delay the uptake of essential nutrients. “I’m not sure why we didn’t change earlier,” he says. “We still have our previous Kuhn 36m twin disc fertiliser spreader, but it is only used once a year for the pheasant covers.” The new sprayer is fitted with John Deere’s Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) ‘Exact Apply’ to help improve application accuracy. PWM has been a great success on the headlands and field corners. “The sprayer regulates the amount of chemical being applied, so for example when going round a corner on the field boundary, more chemical is applied on the outer boom section than on the inside. Our crops are much more even and uniform. It’s difficult to claim that yields have increased because of PWM, but efficiency certainly has.” Omex liquid fertiliser is delivered into tanks strategically positioned on the farm. There are four 50m3 tanks filled with 24N:7.5S; two are in the yard and two are positioned at the other

end of the farm. The season starts with the tanks full and Omex regularly refills them during the season.

Good service “We get a very good service from Omex, which is really important to us because we can easily empty two nitrogen storage tanks per day,” explains James. “Every pass includes sulphur and we aim to start applying liquids early in the morning to avoid scorch risk.” The fertiliser application season starts early too, ideally the third week of February. This gives James greater flexibility and to be more selective on spray days.

“The first and second applications are relatively easy in terms of avoiding scorch, but the third application needs to be done on the best spray day available – ideally dry and still – or when it’s raining,” he says. “We haven’t experienced any scorch with liquids to date.” He adds that the beauty of a liquid fertiliser system is that the sprayer is virtually always being used to either apply pesticides or nutrition. Increasing the use of the sprayer means that the farm will look to replace it after five years. “I like to do all the spraying because it means I get the chance to look at the fields more often,” says James. “You can walk fields as much as you like, but you can’t see as much as you can from the cab, where you can look down from above the crop.” He adds that the business is much more efficient now and saves so much time with one sprayer applying liquid fertiliser and pesticides, often in the same tank mix. He can also pass on any bulk purchasing price savings onto his customers. “With liquids, the customer only pays for what is applied. There is no waste and no bags or large storage buildings needed, so our environmental profile is much better.” FG

Fertilisers & Spreaders

High fertiliser prices underline importance of testing spreaders

Minimise waste, maximise yield With today’s high fertiliser prices, farmers are looking to minimise waste and maximise yield, and there are several ways a KRM spreader can achieve this. Firstly, by ensuring the correct application rate is achieved – the fully automatic Weigh-Cell system with Intelligent Control ensures the correct amount is applied, regardless of material type and operating conditions. Secondly, by ensuring the fertiliser is spread evenly – KRM reckons its tolerant spread patten with Double Double Overlap minimises the risk of inaccuracies. Thirdly, by ensuring headlands are evenly spread – KRM’s Trend Headland system creates the optimal spread patten from the vanes and as such is gentle on the fertiliser whilst ensuring optimum yield across the headland. Finally, by ensuring accuracy in irregularly shaped fields. KRM

says its Dynamic Section Control system adjusts the spread to suit short work areas and residual widths. New for 2022, the number of sections has been doubled from 40 to 80 – this provides finer incremental adjustment, which is especially advantageous on long headland runs. Today an increasing number of machines are operated via GPS, often via Isobus. When variable rate spreading, the Dynamic Section Control system can alter the rate applied to the left and right of the machine to match whatever is required on the ground. When headland spreading, the Dynamic Section Control system automatically adjusts on corners to transfer material from the infield side to the headland side. In addition, Tempo Tracker monitors driver behaviour and automatically adjusts start/stop points to suit. FG

Fertiliser prices have seen unprecedented rises over recent months. There are currently quotes well in excess of £700/tonne for ammonium nitrate, and the prices haven’t stopped rising, writes NSTS manager Ian Forman. AHDB commissioned ADAS to look at the implications of this, to assist growers in making the right decision on application rates. The most significant advice from AHDB is to dramatically reduce nitrogen application rates because this cost will not be able to be recouped (unless crop prices increase greatly) from the additional yield. Reducing N applications by a third might be daunting but needs to be taken into consideration. All this makes fertiliser spreader

testing ever more important to consider prior to any applications made. The potential losses from inaccurate spreading will impact more this year with the discrepancy between the cost of fertiliser and the price of wheat or rape, or any other crop for that matter. FACTS qualified advisors have access to an ‘effect of uneven spreading calculator’. Using a N fertiliser price of £2/kg (£700/tonne) and a wheat price of £200/tonne, could leave financial losses in the region of £13/ha if a spreader shows a coefficient of variation (CV) of 20%. At 5% CV this could be reduced to around £1/ha. For the cost of a spreader test, this difference could be recovered after about 16ha of spreading. FG


Spreader testing could be even more important this year When fertiliser prices reach the levels they are, ensuring an even spread pattern is critical. The NSTS test will provide a thorough inspection of your machine making sure it is in tip top condition for the next season along with guaranteeing the best settings are gained.


Make every kilo count! KRM spreaders are bristling with features to increase accuracy and reduce waste: Double, Double overlap, Weigh Cell control, Dynamic Section Control, Trend headland, GPS automatic headland on/off and Tempo Tracker. It all adds up to a BIG saving! - 01423-324221

Boost soil health and improve yields with just one application An innovative new soil treatment, available for the first time to UK farmers, promises to balance soil pH and supply essential sulphur to soils in one easy, cost-effective application.

Recent data suggests that, following a dramatic reduction in atmospheric deposits over the last 30 years, up to 85% of arable land and 88% of grassland is deficient in sulphur, with some soils now at critically low levels. Sulphur is an essential nutrient required for the healthy development of all plants and vital to efficient nitrogen utilisation. LKAB, maker of Calcifert Lime and Calcifert Sulphur, has brought to the market Calcifert LS11, which both neutralises soil to maintain a balanced pH and contains 11% SO3 to help address the widespread sulphur deficiency on UK farmland. Calcifert LS11’s sulphur content is coupled with high reactivity calcium carbonate – making it very effective at neutralising soil acidity and maintaining the right pH level to optimise fertiliser and nutrient efficiency leading to better quality and yield of crops. LKAB’s technical specialist and agronomist, Mark Tripney (right), explains: “With everincreasing fertiliser prices and sourcing becoming an issue with some products, it is more important than ever that farmers get the most from the inputs they apply, and Calcifert LS11 is a

quick, easy and cost-effective way to target two essential areas of soil health that need addressing annually in nearly all cropping situations – pH level maintenance and sulphur supply. “Trials on one Scottish grassland farm have shown that a single spring application of just 200kg/ha of Calcifert LS11 improved dry matter yield by 9.2% between May and August. This equates to a return of 12:1 and is the result of the improved nutrient use efficiency, and plant uptake, when available calcium and sulphur are applied early in the growing season and pH is maintained at target level. “Soil health, productivity and organic matter are under the spotlight as we look to farm in a more regenerative way, and Calcifert LS11 meets this ambition by improving soil health, and ultimately leading to fewer, more carbonheavy inputs.” Calcifert LS11 is suitable for all crops and is best suited to spring application but can also be used for autumn-drilled oilseed rape and grass reseeds. It is supplied in 600kg bags and can be spread on farm using a conventional fertiliser spreader. FG

FARMERS GUIDE 25 YEARS AGO Barry Mortimer took a look at tillage tackle at the show, commenting that many old machinery companies had been replaced by new ones. He noted a growth in the number of variable furrow width reversible ploughs, furrow presses and packers at Earls Court and that power harrow drill combinations were to be seen on many of the tillage equipment stands. The Lamma ‘97 show preview noted that the January event would have five machinery halls with over 100 exhibitors at the Lincolnshire Showground. Gem Sprayers would be taking its latest self-tracking trailed models to the show and Parker Weighing Systems, exhibiting at Lamma for the first time, would have its latest full size trade weighbridge, priced at £11,000, on its stand. For something a little different, Farm Electronics at Grantham planned to demonstrate a new monitor unit for checking the risk of potato blight. In his Out & About column, Ernest Cozens commented that it was noticeable that the days

The Farmers Guide in January 1997 had full coverage of the previous month’s Royal Smithfield Show. John Hodge noted that the UK average tractor horsepower had now broken through the 100hp barrier. All the major tractor makers had something new at Smithfield. Same and Lamborghini had their latest electro-hydraulic control systems, Universal showed its new fibreglass bonnets and Case IH exhibited its latest models, including the 150hp Case Steyr CS50. However, Valmet ‘took the biscuit’ with its system of remote tractor serviceability monitoring, which via the GSM telephone network alerted the owner of any minor engine problems.

of farmers working things out on the back of an envelope had clearly gone, with the latest farming generation using computers, and that there was an increased number of stands showing computer systems at the Smithfield Show. He pointed out that in the USA, Caterpillar had expressed the view that John Deere had infringed its Challenger rubber track patent rights with its 8000T tractor soon to appear in the UK. In Farm Machinery News, Claas claimed a combine harvesting record for a Lexion 480 with a 7.5m cutter bar, which had harvested 280t of wheat from 38ha in a little under seven hours at an average of 41.5t/hour. An item on weed control in sugar beet gave details of Matrot’s Mobilcord, which had two chemical-impregnated endless moving ropes to kill tall weeds and bolters. After three years’ use, the Rollmaster – which regulated chemical flow to the roller according to need – and the 6m wide machine could cover up to 10 acres/hour with a chemical cost of £3.50/acre. FG

Cletrac Crawler tractors The Cleveland Motor Plow Company at Cleveland in Ohio made its first crawler tractor in 1916. The Cleveland Model R was the first crawler tractor to have a controlled differential and brake steering system which steered the tractor with levers which slowed the speed of one track while increasing the speed of the opposite one. The 12–20hp Model R was imported by London based H.G. Burford & Co in 1917. It was soon replaced by the Model H with one forward and one reverse gear and in the same year the company changed its name to Cletrac. The 1919 Cletrac Model W was still in production in 1922 when it cost £350. The four cylinder 22–30hp Cletrac 15 and the 6-cylinder Cletrac 20 were current in the early 1930s followed in 1953 by the Model

E with the choice of five different track centre widths. The Cletrac BD, made between 1936 and 1956 had a four forward and two reverse speed gearbox. The 26hp HG crawler with a top speed of 5mph was the smallest of three Cletrac models introduced in the early 1940s, when the Ohio Company was also making the one and only wheeled Cletrac General GC, a version of one of the smallest Cletrac crawlers. The tri-cycle wheeled 14–19hp GC, launched in 1939 was discontinued in 1944 when the Oliver Corporation bought the Cleveland Tractor Company. Oliver Cletrac crawler tractors were made for another five years. The wheeled General GC was made by Avery & Sons in Kentucky until 1951 when the company was taken over by Minneapolis Moline. The one-plow Avery Model V and

two-plow Model BF, current at the time, were still being made in the mid-1950s. FG

The Cletrac Model 15 was one of the top selling crawlers in America in the early 1930s.

The sale by HJ Pugh & Co was on behalf of Russell Price Farm Services, following the Price family’s decision to cease trading. It included tractors, combines, potato growing, harvesting and crop storage equipment, arable farming machinery and tools and sundries which were used by the business.

Quality lots sell well at Herefordshire dispersal sale A mid-November agricultural machinery dispersal sale arranged by HJ Pugh & Co’s Ledbury, Herefordshire-based team on behalf of Russell Price Farm Services of Town Farm, Castle Frome, near Ledbury, achieved some excellent results. The family farming and contracting business was started and managed by Russell Price, until his death last year following an illness. Arable crops were grown on rented land and areas farmed within contractfarming agreements. Potatoes were a speciality and approximately 3,000t were grown annually for a contract with McCain. A comprehensive fleet of modern machinery used by the Price family for its own crops meant a reliable contracting service could also be offered. “We specialised in drilling, spraying, harvesting, and baling although almost all services were available,” confirmed Russell’s son Tom. “The business my father built up came to be regarded as a one-stop-shop for all field operations, and we had the Sumo franchise for the area too.” After Russell’s death, Tom and his sister Lucy continued running the business until last year when they made the difficult decision to cease trading. The resulting auction sale comprised a superb selection of modern, high specification machinery as well as crop storage equipment, parts, tools, and sundries.

Friendly team Tom said the family’s only contract with HJ Pugh & Co before organising the sale had been while setting up contract-farming agreements with some of the landlords involved. “The team ran the sale really well and were easy to deal with. Results were generally very good and many smaller items achieved high prices. Some of the larger machinery could have done

better – but it was the wrong time of year to sell potato, cereals and grass harvesting machinery. “Trailers achieved especially high prices, including the Broughan which sold for more than it cost new, and the two 14t Bailey trailers on flotation tyres sold for almost what we paid for them many years before. Tractor front weights were a highlight, achieving or exceeding new prices,” he commented.

disc drill was This Kuhn Espro 6000 6m s in 2017, ines bus the to new d supplie 0ha 4,00 r ove just hed blis had esta in very tidy of crops and remained ,000. condition. It sold for £36

Five Bailey root trailers were sold – four of which were 14t versions and the other was a 16t. All had sprung drawbars and rollover sheets. A 2011 16t model with flotation tyres made £11,500, and two of the 14t models on flotation tyres and dating from 2015 sold for £13,800 and £14,400, while the remaining two 14t trailers which were new in 2008 and 2011 and on super-single wheels and tyres made £7,800 and £8,000 respectively.

Interest from China HJ Pugh partners Howard Pugh, his son James, and Henry Biss sold the lots. “We were lucky with the weather, which was dull but dry on the viewing day, then brighter and dry again for the sale. This encouraged attendance and made the parking situation easier,” explained Henry. “We were amazed at the number of bidders in attendance, and interest in the quality lots meant registering more than 200 new bidders at the sale. “Bids were placed online too, which encouraged interest from further afield including throughout the UK and Europe, and bids for the baler were received from China. Approximately 40% of the winning bids were placed online.” Henry said most lots exceeded guide prices. “Obviously selling harvesting machinery would have been better in the spring, but even so, the competitive bidding for almost all the lots meant results were excellent. The level of interest and prices achieved reflected the quality kit on offer, and the way it had been looked after and was presented for the sale by the Price family.” FG

Househam Merlin self-propelled sprayers have an excellent reputation and this 2014 machine achieved £34,500 despite its age. It was an M4 4,000-litre model, with 24m booms, and it came with a slug pelleter, and sets of rowcrop and flotation wheels and tyres. It had recorded 35,821ha of spraying, and carried an NSTS certificate dated December '20.

Three John Deere GPS receivers were available for bids, including the StarFire 3000 model pictured. This made £1,800, while one of two StarFire 6000 receivers made £2,900, and the other, which was uprated to RTK accuracy, made £4,800.

£80,000 was the winning bid from North Yorkshire for this 2012 Claas Lexion 750 Montana combine. With APS Hybrid threshing and separation, a 25ft header and trolley, plus an oilseed rape side knife, a straw chopper and on 900/60R32 drive, and 600/65R25.5 steering tyres, it was registered on a 12-plate, had been well maintained and was in very good condition.


One of the auction stars, this John Deere 6250R was fitted with the optional CommandPRO multi-function joystick – winner of a Farmers Guide Award for Excellence when it was launched. The tractor was an Ultimate edition and had CVT 50kph transmission, was on Trelleborg TM900 710/70R42 rear, and 600/70R30 front tyres, all with plenty of remaining tread. The 6250R also had front linkage and PTO, rear wheel weights and was GPS autosteer-ready. With 2,591 hours recorded and carrying a 19-registration, it sold for a well-deserved £107,000 to a buyer from Scotland.

Massey Ferguson large square balers are always in strong demand, and this 2015 2270XD had made only 57,821 bales and was in excellent order. It was bought for £57,000 by a UK buyer after competitive bidding at the event and online, including from China.

A Guttler Greenmaster combined grass harrow, aerator, re-seeder and consolidator was in superb condition although it was new in 2018. The 3m machine was fitted with two rows of Harrowflex tines and had an optional sprung rake levelling board at the front. The winning bidder paid £14,000.

Two Pichon manure spreaders were available for bids. Both were M1450, 14t capacity models on 580/70R38 wheels and tyres, but the machine pictured was the newer of the two – dating from 2019 and had weigh cells. It sold for £26,500 while the 2014 model made £19,500.

The Alstrong 3m trailed soil aerator with hydraulic lift and transport wheels weighed 3.0t unladen but could be ballasted to 5.5t with liquid. New in 2018, it sold for £5,300. Pictured next to it, the Enorossi Model 12i D 7.5m central-delivery Batrake which was in excellent order and had been supplied new in 2018 sold for £3,600, and the Enorossi Vortex G6 6-rotor Profiline tedder supplied in 2017 by UK importer Amia achieved £3,200.

This Merlo Farmer P34.7, telehandler with 3.4t maximum capacity and 7m maximum lift height was a 2013 model registered on a 63-plate. It had worked 3,094 hours, remained in very tidy condition, and was on Michelin 460/70R24 agricultural tyres. It achieved a winning bid of £29,000.

A Claas Scorpion 7040 Variopower telehandler with 4t maximum lift capacity, 7.1m maximum lift height, a Taylor headstock, pick-up hitch and on Vredestein 460/70R24 industrial tyres was also a 2013 model and registered on a 63-plate. In good condition and with 2,674 recorded working hours it sold for £38,000.

This high specification Broughan 16t root trailer was new in 2019, and it had a sprung drawbar, BKT Ridemax 560/60R22.5 tyres, a front platform and ladder, and a rollover sheet. It made £18,000.

Another John Deere – this 2016, 6195R had AutoPowr 50kph transmission, front linkage and PTO, and was equipped for GPS auto-steer. It was on Michelin 650/65R42 rear, and 600/65R28 front tyres. 5,218 hours had been recorded. Carrying TAG dealer stickers, it was very tidy inside and out and a bidder from Wales paid £61,000.

A Sumo Rippa heavy-duty deep soil loosener was also new in 2019 and in good condition. The 3m model sold for £9,800.

Tools, parts and sundries were displayed under cover.
