Out & About With Farmers Guide editor Rachel Hicks and the team The team behind Farmers Guide is incredibly excited to announce a new venture, which will be launching later this year. Devoted to content exclusively for growers in the fruit and vineyard sector, the new Fruit & Vine magazine is currently in production. Company directors Julie Goulding and Greg Goulding, and editor Rachel Hicks, were welcomed to Shotley Vineyard by Charlotte Davitt-Mills in July – Fruit & Vine magazine readers can look forward to finding out more about Charlotte’s experiences in the first issue’s featured grower profile.

Editor Rachel Hicks and senior sales executive Jo Blower stopped by the Environment Bank stand at Groundswell 2022 in late July, where they chatted to marketing assistant Alice Rose and marketing manager Fraser Rutherford. Ernest Doe’s impressive stand at the Norfolk Show attracted many visitors. Pictured in front of a Case IH Optum is the Fakenham branch’s agriculture area sales manager, Ben Halliday.

Animal health company Norbrook territory manager Paul Uglow said he had plenty of good conversations with livestock farmers at the Norfolk Show.

SAS Agri directors Richard Gay and Emma Davey, sales executive Dameon Layt, and retail parts manager Dale Johnson reported a busy Norfolk Show and said they thoroughly enjoyed their time exhibiting at the event.

Dealer Ben Burgess was the only stand at the Norfolk Show to have a combine on it, which was being delivered to a local farm after the event. The company is supporting the Priscilla Bacon charity, which needs to raise £12.5M to open the Priscilla Bacon Hospice. So far, £10.3M has been raised in three years. Pictured (l-r) are the charity’s volunteer ambassador, Clive Evans, with Ben Burgess managing director Ben Turner Snr, and director and dealer principal, Ben Turner Jnr.

On the Tricet UK stand at Groundswell, southern regional director John Scott discussed the role and importance of amino acids in soil and plants, as just one part of bio-nutrition and bio-agronomy.

HL Hutchinson Ltd’s head of marketing, Nick Rainsley, is pictured in front of the company’s soil pit at Groundswell, which was a big conversation point.

And finally… From the Farmers Guide archives:

Pictured on the Bionature UK stand at Groundswell are (l-r) sales executive Ryan Taylor, director Mark Carter, and sales executive Tom Robinson.

TNS sales director Chris Tew, and regional sales manager for Fendt and Valtra, Richie Hannant, are pictured in front of a vintage 7NHP Marshall Agricultural Engine, also known as Bessie. Bessie was built on 22nd June 1922 and sold through George Thurlow and Sons, Stowmarket.

A car was involved in a serious accident in the village centre, attracting a large crowd of onlookers. A passing solicitor saw the crowd and rubbed his hands together in glee, seeing the opportunity for a ‘where there’s blame, there’s a claim’ situation. Running towards the crowd, he began shouting: “Let me through! Let me through! I’m the son of the victim!” The crowd stared, and made way for him. Lying in front of the car was a donkey.

Grain & Fertiliser Advice

Predicting harvest results is nigh on impossible – so who is now driving the need for accurate and timely UK data? The first provisional UK crop number may not be available until October – so it’s important that individual farmers clearly identify their crop sizes and quality as soon as practically possible. At the time of writing, in the midst of a heatwave in mid-July, the ‘weather gods’ seem to realise the pain that will be felt by UK farmers if they have to dry grain. I just hope that it’s the same by the time you read this, says Openfield’s head of compliance, shipping and research, Cecilia Pryce. It still astonishes me how, with the advent of so much science and technology, predicting crop sizes and quality prior to harvest is such a dark art. I know someone will read this and suggest I invest in some expensive weather modelling but, in a country like the UK, we all know that yield varies from field to field, from variety to variety, and from region to region. The long and short of this is that a country’s crop number is basically a best guess – with the only real knowledge being either at farm level, if weighed over a weighbridge, or at the end of the season when everything has been weighed out. This uncertainty means even the best traders have to remain on their toes, never fully knowing if there will be enough of what the world wants. Similarly, many governments have never needed to know how much grain they really have. They have relied upon market forces and prices to move commodities from areas of surplus


to deficit, but never have they seen the price volatility that we have in the last five months. This shock is good, as it refocuses the attention back onto things that matter. In the UK, we have seen many years of ‘lack of interest’ and ‘lack of investment’ in many areas of arable data collecting. Surveys that have survived have largely done so because they were a statutory requirement from the EU or similar, but who is now driving the need for accurate and timely UK data? The reality is that harvest may be upon us, but the first provisional UK crop number will be published at some time in October – is that really acceptable? For the above reasons alone, it’s important that individual farmers clearly identify their crop sizes and quality as soon as practically possible. Knowing as much about your combined crops will ensure you have clarity to make the best marketing decisions. I’ve lost count of the number of farmers who

‘aren’t sure’ about what quality they have and therefore put off making a decision. The merchant trade will collect and analyse your samples. All you have to do is take enough representative samples, ideally when you have conditioned your grain. Poor sampling is likely to give you rubbish results and a sense of humour failure when you get rejections and claims. There are many very professional farmers who do an amazing job of looking after their grain postharvest, but there are unfortunately also a large number who don’t seem to care what happens to it once it’s undercover. Every tonne of grain is important in a world which may come up short this year, but it has to be legally fit for purpose. No consumer contractually has to take grain that’s out of specification so please be the best you can be and pay attention to all aspects of harvest, storage and marketing. Let’s all try our hardest to make the 2022/23 season memorable for the right reasons; and that means providing quality crops that you are proud of, not a ‘load it and let someone else deal with it’ situation.

Fertiliser matters A broad-spectrum grain analysis at harvest is the best way to determine if the nutritional requirements of a previous crop were properly addressed, comments Openfield’s fertiliser manager, Lucy Hassall. This covers 12 plant nutrients to ensure any deficiencies are identified. Grain analysis is a useful tool to help with making nutrient decisions for the following crop, with an accurate measurement of nutrient off-take. Carrying out soil sample tests post-harvest will not only assess the availability of nutrients, but also the pH level. Correct pH is key to maximising nutrient use efficiency and lime applications should be used as the primary input where soils are below optimum levels. The closer to target the more effective the fertiliser will be. Phosphate plays a vital role in the establishment of OSR during the autumn. There are a range of OSR starter fertilisers available, including technology to help prevent phosphorus fixation, increasing availability for greater uptake by the crop. FG

News in brief Are you the ‘new face of farming’?

The Black Farmer and Writtle University College (WUC) are on a crusade to stop the drought in diversity within the food, farming and agricultural industries. Together they have begun a nationwide search to find the future faces of farming. The search is going to take place outside of traditional farming circles to encourage young people from diverse backgrounds to consider

farming as a career. Wilfred EmmanuelJones, aka The Black Farmer, who was awarded an MBE for Services to Farming in 2020 explains: “As a young boy living in inner city Birmingham and with an interest in farming, it was impossible to find the opportunity to develop this interest. Fifty years on, nothing has changed. Many young people interested in food, farming and agriculture do not know where to go to explore and develop their interest. This scheme is the first step in bringing about much needed change.” ‘New Faces For Farming’

will offer young people from a wide range of backgrounds an opportunity to learn about careers in this exciting sector. Participants will visit WUC’s working farm and experience a weekend of socialising and life on a university campus. Writtle University College’s vice chancellor, Professor Tim Middleton said: “We are pleased to be working closely with Wilfred Emmanuel-Jones to launch this important initiative. Agriculture should be a sector that welcomes everyone and our residential weekend marks the first of a series of measures aimed at widening access to this rewarding industry.”

Agriculture, forestry and fishing businesses urged to sign up for MTD The way businesses file Value Added Tax (VAT) returns has now changed, as part of Making Tax Digital (MTD). HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) is urging businesses in the ag sector to join over 1.7 million taxpayers who are already benefitting from MTD to make the change. From 1st April 2022, MTD for VAT became mandatory for all VAT-registered

businesses, regardless of turnover. This means businesses need to keep digital business records, sign up to MTD and file all their future VAT returns using MTDcompatible software. If they do not file their VAT returns through MTD, they may have to pay a penalty. Even if a business currently keeps digital records, they must check their software is

MTD compatible and sign up for MTD. A list of software compatible with Making Tax Digital for VAT, including lowcost options, is available on HMRC has continued to work with smaller businesses below the £85,000 VAT threshold to ensure they are ready and to remind them of the actions they need to take.

Farms selling faster in response to strong demand Analysis of Strutt & Parker’s Farmland Database, which records the details of all farms, estates and blocks of publicly marketed farmland over 100 acres, shows that nearly half of the farms marketed this year are already either under offer or have exchanged. This is a much greater proportion than was seen at the same point in each of the past five years.

Tight supply and strong demand have pushed the average value of arable land in England up by 2% to £9,600/ acre – the highest it has been since 2015. The average value of pasture land has also risen by 6% to £7,900/acre. “We haven’t seen a farmland market like this for some time,” says Matthew Sudlow, head of estates &

farm agency for Strutt & Parker. “Competitive bidding and best-and-final offers are becoming common for topquality properties in desirable locations. For example, a 500-acre farm on the market recently for £7.25m attracted viewings from 17 interested parties and went under offer, after just five weeks, for more than its guide price.”

Wool & Wellness campaign warms farmers’ heads and minds

The Great Yorkshire Show in mid-July saw the launch of the nationwide ‘Wool & Wellness’ campaign, organised by British Wool and national farming charity The Farming Community Network (FCN) to support farmers’ physical and mental health during the winter months. The campaign encourages members of the public and the farming community to take up the challenge of knitting a hat using wool, stitching in an FCN Helpline label (0300 011 1999), and then giving it to another person. FCN and British Wool are asking people to share photos of their creations on social media using the hashtag #WoolAndWellness. The initial batch of wool for the campaign has been provided by West Yorkshire Spinners, and the campaign is encouraging those taking part where possible to use yarn made from British wool. Full details on how to get involved can be found on the FCN website:

UK agricultural tractor registrations The continuing impact of disruptions to global supply chains is still apparent in the number of agricultural tractors being registered in the UK. In June, 938 machines were registered – 36% lower than in the same month last year. June 2021’s figure was unusually high but this year’s total is towards the bottom end of the range seen for the same month in recent years, although the extended Bank Holiday weekend at the start of the month may have had some impact. The total number of machines registered during the first half of the year reached 6,420. That is 6% fewer than in January to June 2021, despite reports that there is no shortage of demand, indicating the scale of the supply chain challenges facing manufacturers. Registrations for the year to date were still 6% above the fiveyear average, though. Month: 938 units, -36.43% change (compared with June '21) Year to date: 6,420 units, -6.2% change (compared with January–June '21) 88855

Plant celebrates the production of its 1,000,000th tractor

Massey Ferguson recently announced that its Beauvais factory in France has produced its 1,000,000th tractor. Another significant milestone, as the brand is celebrating 175 years of history. At an event to mark this milestone, Thierry Lhotte, vice-president and managing director Massey Ferguson

EAME and president of Agco in France underlined: “Our Beauvais Massey Ferguson Global Home has grown continuously over the past 62 years, working with and for farmers. On behalf of all our employees I want to thank our customers for their everlasting trust. We are particularly proud to have them represented today by the owner of this brand-new MF 8S.305 DynaVT, the 1,000,000th tractor produced in Beauvais, Mr Thierry Aubrée – arable farmer and contractor, in the village

of La Chapelle des Fougeretz in Brittany, France and his local dealer Hervé Motoculture.” Mr Aubrée commented: “I’m passionate about new technologies including RTK guidance, section control with a focus on soil preservation and sustainable farming practices. The MF 8S exudes this modernity thanks to its efficient engine, smooth transmission, perfect wheelbase and offers visibility, cab comfort and precision farming connectivity capabilities.”

Farmers and growers needed to help develop new SFI for IPM ADAS, SRUC and NFU are looking for farmers and growers to help guide the development of a new Sustainable Farming Incentive (SFI) Standard for Integrated Pest Management (IPM). This new Defra-funded project will develop tools and guidance to provide reliable information for farmers, growers and advisers making IPM decisions. ADAS technical director for crop protection, Dr 89115

Neil Paveley, comments: “With key active substances disappearing from the market and resistance on the rise, we need to step up implementation of IPM to maintain effective control of invertebrate pests, weeds and diseases. The ultimate goal of this Test and Trial project is to provide farmers, growers and advisers with tools and reliable guidance to try new IPM methods. We need

growers to get involved in the development now so when the SFI standard does come out, it is relevant and useful for all growers.” The information gathered from this process will inform the SFI Standard for IPM, which is due to be rolled out in 2023. If you would like to take part or find out more about this test and trial, contact

NSA questions popular restaurant chain’s disappointing decision

As a long-established favourite choice for Sunday lunchtimes, lamb is often especially popular for those choosing to enjoy a traditional roast dinner when eating out. The National Sheep Association (NSA) therefore recently expressed disappointent to hear that pub carvery chain Toby Carvery has stopped serving lamb on Sundays, blaming ongoing stock issues for the decision – a move that NSA questioned, as sustainably produced, delicious British lamb is currently in plentiful supply. NSA chief executive Phil Stocker commented: “NSA questions the decision of Toby Carvery to remove lamb as we know it is a much-enjoyed meat for those treating themselves to a meal out and one of the most sustainable sources of protein available to us. If Toby restaurants are struggling with stock issues, then there are plenty of suppliers that could step in and provide a consistent and reliable supply of quality lamb. “At a time when good food choices can help promote a sustainable lifestyle and support farmers who are doing such a good job of looking after the countryside, removing lamb from the Toby Carvery menu is a huge disappointment. I really hope that Toby Carvery will consider reversing its decision and put delicious British lamb back on the plates for its diners to enjoy.”

RABI announces ‘return to school’ grant for farming families In response to the unacceptable financial choices farming families will face in the run up to the new school year, RABI has launched a ‘return to school’ grant to help cover the cost of school uniforms, P.E. kit and other equipment. “Worryingly, almost 70% of parents across the UK are concerned about the expense of covering the cost of returnto-school clothes and equipment,” explains Caron Whaley, director of services at RABI. “The farming community has been heavily impacted by rapidly rising costs. The added pressure of buying clothes and equipment, for the new academic year, can add significant stress. These financial worries can have a detrimental impact on mental wellbeing of the entire family. We want to support farming people through this difficult time,” she continues. “Nobody should face tough choices about where to cut back on other essentials and we are here to support you with a £500 grant per child. Callers to the helpline will be put in contact with their local support manager who will guide them through a short and simple application process.” Grant applications can be made throughout August; start the process by making a call to RABI’s 24/7 helpline on 0800 188 4444.

Tackling the increased take-all risk in wheat How can growers minimise the impact of the soil-borne pathogen take-all, as visible symptoms in current crops hint at increased risk for consecutive cereals drilled this autumn? The level of take-all inoculum has been high this year, with symptoms starting to show in crops after a dry spell leading into the harvest period. This is leading to a warning about the potential for primary infection this autumn in second and third wheats, and growers are advised to invest in a seed treatment to protect yield.

Ideal conditions Take-all is a soil-borne fungus that effects the roots of second and consecutive cereal crops, but it takes a certain set of conditions over the growing period to be met to see the most striking symptoms. Over the past 12 months, these parameters have been met, with a mild and wet winter allowing the disease to get a foothold in crops. A relatively dry spring followed, and, in many years, this would be enough to reduce disease progression, but capped soils have helped to retain moisture in the root zone on more bodied soils. In turn, this has led to significant secondary spread of the disease from roots infected in the autumn to new roots produced in the spring, damaging their ability to supply water and nutrients to above ground biomass. Now, with hot and dry weather prevailing, distinct patches of affected plants are visible in second

and third cereals, with stunted plants and ‘white heads’, where ears are empty of any grain – the tell-tale sign of take-all damage.

Nutrient struggles One agronomist that has seen takeall symptoms in commercial crops is Syed Shah, southern regional agronomist with NIAB, and he expects the disease to impact on final yields. “It’s been worse on lighter, drier soils and where early nitrogen wasn’t applied, with the take-all effect on rooting meaning that plants struggle to get the nutrients they need,” Mr Shah explains. In his area across Sussex, ProCam’s crop production manager Mike Thornton (pictured) hasn’t seen significant take-all symptoms himself, but ProCam colleagues have shared images of its impact on wheat crops elsewhere in the country. He says it has been worse in wetter parts, where rooting may have been lazy or compromised by compaction. “Then, when the dry time arrived from April onwards and the water table dropped, problems started to become evident. “When plants aren’t taking up

nitrogen, they drop tillers and the remaining ones produce poor grains and we’ll start see its true impact when the combines make a start,” says Mr Thornton.

Rotational options Mr Thornton reckons that after some rotational disruption over recent seasons, growers across his area are increasing their oilseed rape area to break long runs of cereal crops. However, Dr Shah says some of his clients are considering planting more second or third wheat crops given the relatively strong wheat price and the crop offering relatively consistent results. Much will depend on grassweed control in the previous wheat crop, but with new chemistry in Luximo (cynmethalin) giving an edge over flufenacet against blackgrass, it may offer further encouragement when considering consecutive cereals. “Last year, second wheats outyielded first wheats in many cases due to the crop being drilled later and suffering less disease. “Even if you achieve 7.5t/ha with a second or third wheat, it will still pay for itself given the strong grain price,” he explains. In these situations, crops will

be vulnerable to take-all and he says Latitude (silthiofam) and phosphite-based seed treatment to encourage rooting are two things he recommends as a matter of course in most situations. “There is nothing you can do about take-all later in the season, so why would you compromise the crop by not using Latitude?” says Dr Shah. Mr Thornton agrees and says although the right variety choice can help a crop withstand the effects of take-all and is an important piece of an integrated control strategy, the genetics still need support. Latitude will reduce primary infection that can spread and create the patchy symptoms that characterise the disease. “If you opt for a second or third wheat, I will say use Latitude. I can’t see a reason why you wouldn’t because it’s a disease that can halve yield. “If you are going to grow and invest in these crops, you should do it properly and get things right from the start. There is no going back afterwards,” he adds.

Nutrition key Dr Shah says higher seed rates, drilling into a good quality seedbed and consolidating after drilling is key in second or third wheats, along with continued over…

early nutrition, both in the autumn and the spring. Where phosphate soil indices are lower than 2.5+, he advocates applying 50–60kg/ha of P2O5 fertiliser to the seedbed prior to drilling. At 2.5+ and above, then any fresh phosphate can wait until the spring. It can then be combined with first nitrogen applications in the form of di-ammonium phosphate just ahead of when crops start to grow in the early spring. “I always recommend an early application of 50–60kg/ha of N in second or third wheats too. “There is little point in waiting until the crop is actively growing, particularly if using urea. The risk of leaching is very low, and it takes 10–14 days before it becomes available to plant, so get it on so it’s there when the plant needs it,” explains Dr Shah.

Latitude cost benefit calculator Given the high levels of inoculum seen this autumn, the investment in Latitude is justified, as a return on investment is highly likely given the potential yield loss and high grain price. Certis Belchim’s Cost Benefit Calculator online tool is a good way of seeing that ROI in black and white, with growers entering the cost of Latitude from their supplier, target seed rate and expected grain price.

It will then show a margin over Latitude cost in a moderate take-all risk situation, which the firm’s Tim Eaton (pictured) says is favourable, even in years where the grain price is closer to £150/t. “In addition to the protection against take-all, we’ve also seen that plants make much better use of nitrogen inputs when treated with Latitude, reducing the potential for leaching. “It’s an economic and environmental win-win,” he adds. The calculator can be found at FG

Take-all: How it affects susceptible cereal crops

Second or consecutive cereals drilled early in mid- to late-September are most susceptible to primary infection, as the take-all fungus is more active in the soil

As root growth kicks off in spring, take-all jumps from older infected roots to new ones, moving through the crop to form ‘patches’ of infection

Roots become black and brittle, compromising water and nutrient uptake, stunting growth, and reducing or stopping grain development altogether

Cultural controls such as rotation, later drilling, fine and firm seedbeds all reduce risk. Any products that promote rooting and root health can help, such as phosphite seed dressings and foliar sprays

Just one fungicide seed treatment exists that has true activity on the take-all fungus, with Latitude (silthiofam) reducing primary infection in the autumn and protecting yield.

“Before doing anything, it is important to stop, take a step back and consider what the soil actually needs,” says Hutchinsons head of soil health, Ian Robertson (right), who urges growers to adopt a flexible “clever cultivation” strategy. “Clever cultivation can mean anything from not cultivating at all to subsoiling or ploughing where necessary. As a general rule, never cultivate at the same depth every year and make sure whatever you do delivers what the soil actually needs.” He notes the rising popularity of low disturbance subsoilers for rectifying structural issues in shallow tillage systems. Such implements are often needed to break up distinct layers that can form where ground has been repeatedly cultivated at a shallow depth (typically 50mm), potentially restricting water infiltration and root growth. “In many cases, the need for this remedial action could have been avoided by adopting a more varied approach to cultivations.”

Understand soil requirements The first step in deciding what, if any, cultivation is required is to dig a few holes to identify any structural issues such as compaction or poor drainage. When assessing soils in summer, Mr Robertson says care is needed not to mistake dry, hard soil for compaction. The bubble test is a simple way of identifying whether dry soils are compacted. Infiltration tests are also useful, but when conducted in summer, make sure water does not flow straight down cracks.

“Typically, 50% of soil is made up of air and water, so it may be that rock hard ground just needs wettingup again to return to a friable surface that can be drilled straight into. “In the past few years, we’ve seen examples where growers have rushed to create a seedbed after harvest, only for heavy rain to make it unworkable. In some cases, it may have been better not to touch it.” Root networks left by crops, even low yielding ones, do a fantastic job of stabilising soil aggregates, improving porosity and structure of the top layer that crops are drilled into, so leaving this undisturbed can often be a better choice. “Nine times out of 10, the top 50mm is actually in good condition.” Hutchinsons technical manager Dick Neale (left) agrees. “Stubbles generally handle moisture much better than a cultivated surface. If you’ve got a nice, friable surface that’s managed moisture well, most modern drills are capable of drilling directly into stubble, so there’s no need to cultivate. Cultivations destroy aggregate structure, which takes time to rebuild.” Not disturbing the surface offers significant benefits for moisture conservation too, which can make all the difference when establishing crops such as oilseed rape or earlysown wheats in dry autumns, he adds. “Moisture conservation and managing moisture within the seedbed have got to be an absolute focus.” Oilseed rape in particular is better direct-drilled with a disc or tinebased implement to minimise soil movement and conserve moisture, he says. Given the importance of

Arable achieving even sowing depth for such a small seed, he advises against seeder units on subsoilers and recommends growers plan rotations and cultivations carefully to ensure any structural issues are rectified in preceding seasons.

Target cultivations If soil assessments reveal some form of cultivation is required, both experts urge growers to select operations and implements suited to the specific soil requirements. “If compaction is identified, consider where it is, how extensive it is and what depth it’s at, so that machines can be setup correctly to address this,” says Mr Neale. “Don’t assume poor water movement from the surface is due to deep compaction and poor drainage; it may be a surface issue that’s easier and cheaper to rectify.” Many soil water management problems in recent seasons have been caused by issues of consolidation, slumping or capping in the top 100–125mm of soil, not by deeper compaction. “In such situations, there’s no point running a subsoiler through at 250mm deep, as it could make the situation worse.” Soil moisture content is critical to the success of operations such as subsoiling and mole ploughing, Mr Robertson adds. “Subsoiling for example needs soil to be dry enough for natural fissures and cracking, but if it’s too dry, there’s a risk of bringing up large slabs and creating an uneven

The bubble test This is a simple test that could avoid unnecessary tillage, saving time, money and benefitting natural soil structure and works on the principle that good soil structure typically comprises 25% air, 25% water, 45% minerals and 5% organic matter. Growers should dig a representative lump of soil (around the size of a house brick or large handful) and place it in a bucket of water. The appearance of a steady stream of bubbles shows air is being displaced from natural cavities and pores, so the soil structure is likely to be just dry and hard, rather than compacted. However, a lack of bubble activity could suggest air pockets have been destroyed by compaction and remedial action is needed. rush into doing it.” It is also important to remember “cultivations create weeds” by stimulating germination and bringing fresh seed to the surface, Mr Neale says. However, this can be used to growers’ advantage, such as for managing black-grass, where shallow (50mm) cultivations encourage a chit of black-grass that can be sprayed off before drilling. “Remember though, black-grass won’t want to grow until September or October, so timing is key.” Despite the clear benefits of reducing tillage intensity, he recognises ploughing can be useful in some situations, such as where there has been a high black-grass seed return that year. “Ploughing’s got to be done well to properly bury seed to depth, and you need to be sure you’re not just bringing up another problem in the form of old seed. “Factors such as delayed drilling for black-grass control should always be balanced against the need for good crop establishment to maximise crop competition and yield potential.” FG

Successful black-grass control takes time and dedication More than two decades of black-grass trials at Agrii’s Stow Longa research centre suggest that only by taking a fully integrated approach involving the full gamut of control options will growers succeed in tackling this problem weed. A recognition that cultural control measures would eventually surpass formulated herbicides in controlling black-grass led Agrii to initiate what has become the longest-running distributor R&D weed control trial in the UK. Over the years, the learnings have been shared with those facing black-grass challenges of their own. The trial, which is dedicated to the pursuit of improving control using all available measures, began in 2000. The trial has documented several notable findings. The once strong and subsequently waning performance of certain herbicides has been recorded while the contribution of non-chemical measures has come to be recognised. After 22 years, the overriding conclusion is that no single measure will deliver the highlevel control needed to bring about a sustained reduction in the weed population. It requires a truly integrated approach, explains Colin Lloyd, Agrii’s head of agronomy, who initiated the project. “The skill is in bringing it all together. It’s not a case of simply following a prescribed course of actions,” he says.

Waning control In the early 2000s it was relatively easy to achieve a high level of black-grass control. A November application of Atlantis (iodosulfron-methylsodium + mesosulfuron-methyl) would regularly control upwards of 90% of the population. After several years of selection pressure, this seemingly reliable control began to wane and by 2012 control in the trials at Stow Longa had fallen to less than 40%. This experience clearly demonstrates the short-term nature of relying on single site mode of action herbicides, but also the fallibility of a less-than-integrated approach. “We should never rest on our laurels as we did with Atlantis, nor should we discount a means of control based on an ideological view of how to farm. The plough, while out of fashion amongst

a large cohort of farmers, regularly delivers the single biggest reduction in populations of any management intervention, but it alone is not enough to achieve the 97% control needed to reduce populations over the long-term,” Mr Lloyd says. The Agrii experience is that success comes from adopting an integrated approach across the rotation with measures implemented where they will make the greatest contribution. The challenge to growers is to balance those that improve control with the pressure to optimise profitability. Spring cropping has repeatedly been shown to support better control by way of greater use of the non-selective herbicide glyphosate ahead of drilling. The trial at Stow Longa suggests spring oats have performed best in this situation followed by spring barley and spring wheat respectively. The principal consideration is that the gross margin returns can be less than the winter cereal of choice, winter wheat. “This is the trade-off to consider. The financial rewards of spring crops may be less appealing, but a reduced autumn workload means smaller, often less expensive, machinery is enough to complete drilling. There is also less need for pre-emergence herbicides, all of which adds up to a saving in costs,” Mr Lloyd says. Extending the rotation to include more crop species or facilitate cover crops if soil types and conditions allow has benefits beyond a possible contribution to black-grass control, but again such decisions should not be made lightly. “Winter beans are often promoted as presenting a useful opportunity to control grassweeds, but their need for a deeper tilled seedbed is significant. Within the rotations trial at Stow Longa, the direct drilling/min tillage area over the last six years has left the ground tight which led to a poor crop. Extending the rotation to include more spring crops will also support control of other weeds,

especially those that thrive in low-disturbance regimes.

Exchanging one problem for another “Growers need to be wary of exchanging one problem for another. At Stow Longa, we have seen a worsening problem with soft and meadow bromes in the direct-drilled plots. It was made worse where a cover crop was sown straight after harvest. Our experience is that the soil should be left undisturbed for at least a month to allow these bromes to mature and germinate so they can be controlled,” Mr Lloyd says. Similarly, abandoning inversion tillage practices or adopting cover crops is just as likely to make the black-grass burden worse, at least in the short-term. “Moving from a plough-based system to a low-disturbance drill and cover crops in one year resulted in poor straw distribution, lower establishment and worse black-grass. The transition takes time, it is not a quick fix where grassweeds are an issue,” Mr Lloyd says. “Similarly, after six years of min-till/direct drill with catch/cover crops, the black-grass population remained at elevated levels. In this situation, the plough provided an opportunity to achieve a reset,” he adds. Over the course of the eight-year trial, blackgrass populations have fluctuated in response to establishment practices. In year five of the six-year low disturbance/cover crop trial, the cultivation tines of the drill were dropped in about 25mm lower than previous years because the seedbed was tight for the introduction of catch/cover crops and needed it. The black-grass population subsequently soared to 376 ears per m2. By ploughing part of the plot the following year, the population was reduced to 39 ears per m2 compared with 349 ears per m2 in the continued direct-drilled section. “Don’t be bound to an ideology. If it’s not working, try something different,” Mr Lloyd concludes. FG

Reduce input costs and environmental footprints with biological seed treatments this autumn Trials and event crop plots have shown consistency and performance of biological seed treatments, says AminoA. Preparing now for biological seed treatments this autumn can encourage speedy crop establishment and root biomass, while reducing overall input costs and achieving a significant return on investment, further trial results are demonstrating. AminoA Staart, fully approved for use in organic systems by OF&G, is a new seed treatment containing a complex of 18 L-isomer amino-acids and natural phytohormones that are essential for early growth and development, while increasing the plant’s resistance to abiotic and biotic stress. “AminoA Staart encourages vigorous root development and growth, while improving the efficiency of other agrochemicals and fertilisers,” explains Richard Phillips, managing director of UK bio-technology company AminoA. “It combines a broad spectrum of

amino acids, natural phytohormones, fulvic and humic acids, supported by a balanced nutrition pack,” he adds. “Combined, this helps stimulate continuous root development which increases the plant’s ability to uptake nutrients, ultimately increasing yields and improving profits.” In NIAB winter wheat (Extase) low-input crop plots at Groundswell 2022, ear counts were significantly higher than the control, at an average of 270 (per m2) over 248, in drought conditions, when AminoA Staart was applied at 3-litres per tonne. The AminoA plots also showed a much lower SD across all other programmes in the trial. In similar drought conditions, Sp Wheat (Miluka) in a 17-replicate trial, Staart boosted yield by over 400kg/ha, 6.6–7.02 t/ha. Similar low-input crop plot trials at Cereals 2022 demonstrated fantastic results with seed treatments

in the wheat, triticale and OSR plots. Launched in November 2020, AminoA Staart has been independently trialled across various crops including spring barley, winter wheat and spring beans. “In fully replicated trials with PGRO in 2021, with spring bean variety Lynx, a five-litre per tonne seed treatment alone produced an 890kg tonne yield increase. So consider increasing legume area to reduce input cost and maximise N fixation for a following first wheat,” says Mr Phillips. “In fully replicated trials in Laureate spring barley, a 3-litre per tonne seed treatment produced a yield increase of over 500kg/ha, to produce an impressive yield of more than 10t/ha on a site where there was no response to fungicides,” he adds. “Whether the growing conditions are good or bad, using Staart gives an excellent return on investment.” When faced with growing pressure from industry and Government to reduce

environmental footprints, AminoA’s biological solutions combine proven and independently tested performance alongside crucial environmental benefits. “Bio-stimulants are now becoming mainstream inputs, regulated worldwide, and suitable for use in all crops,” says Mr Phillips. “Moreover, they can provide yield, performance and quality benefits, while helping reduce carbon footprints and overall input spend on expensive agrochemicals.” FG

Maximising the yield potential of cereal crops

Good establishment is a key factor in getting the best out of cereal crops. If you choose to direct drill or min-till, you will disturb less and therefore save fuel, costs and carbon emissions. However, you will also allow less oxygen in to the soil which reduces the mineralisation of organic matter and the release of nitrogen available to the crop. Sometimes soil conditions are not ideal, and seed ends up being sown into soil that is too dry or partially compacted. During very wet times, seed can end up sitting in a partially waterlogged slot in the soil. Whatever the technique you use to establish a crop, seed quality will play a key role in the success of the crop and this is even more true in many direct drilled or min-till situations. It is important to remember that in the early stages, the crop is almost entirely dependent on the energy and nutrition contained within or on the seed. Once roots establish, minerals are absorbed from the soil and from the seed surface which can be treated to act as a carrier of vital seedling nutrition. Trials carried out on seed have proven that big, dense seed is higher in germination and vigour than smaller, less dense seed. Big seed produces plants with more rapid leaf and root growth to achieve good establishment. A vigorous crop above ground normally only happens if the crop is producing a vigorous root system to support it, and a vigorous crop will compete better with weeds. With fertiliser prices remaining high, many farmers may end up cutting back on this input. It makes good sense to ensure that next year’s crops have the most healthy and

vigorous roots possible to scavenge the soil for water and the available fertiliser. A standard fungicidal seed treatment helps to reduce the effects of fusarium, bunt and other fungal pathogens present on wheat seed or in the soil. A basic seed treatment will help to keep barley crops protected from loose smut, leaf stripe and net blotch. Second and subsequent wheat and barley crops may suffer root damage from take-all. Latitude seed treatment will reduce the effects of take-all. Nutritional seed treatments that contain manganese, phosphite and amino acids will also help crops to cope better with the challenge from take-all and other root diseases. Products such as Vibrance Duo and Radiate stimulate plants to produce bigger root systems. With grain prices remaining high, these products will provide a good return on investment. It is important to remember that root health is a key factor that drives crop yields higher. Nutrients are absorbed much more efficiently through roots via a seed treatment compared to untreated seeds.

Seed treatments: Targeted means of control Single purpose dressings is a misleading name for products that control a myriad of seed- and soil-borne pathogens, facilitating establishment, says UPL’s business manager – seed treatments, Chantal Lipscombe. With the catchy weather we are experiencing at grain ripening, the risk of ear blight is present in many parts of the country. This translates into potentially higher levels of fusarium and microdochium infection in the seed and trash at harvest. The inoculum in crop debris means that, as well as ensuring seed is tested, a robust seed treatment should be selected to mitigate soil-borne infections that can lead to damping off and establishment failure of both wheat and barley. Seed treatment is still the most targeted means of controlling seed- and soil-borne diseases as it allows for a low active ingredient rate per hectare that when used in line with current stewardship guidelines forms part of an effective integrated pest management (IPM) strategy. Rancona i-MIX seed treatment from UPL is a combination of two active ingredients – ipconazole and imazalil. Ipconazole belongs to the triazole class and has been shown to be one of the most

effective fungicides for use in seed treatments across a range of crops. It has activity on all pathogen classes that cause disease on seed and seedlings of wheat and barley in the UK, and is therefore used against fusarium, microdochium, rhizoctonia, smuts and bunts across the world. Ipconazole also reduces fungal growth and development of ergot and when applied to sclerotinia, reduces the germination of fruiting bodies (stomata). Ipconazole acts as a protective barrier and curative disinfectant, translocated within the germinated seed into the embryo, and the roots and shoots. This provides defence against soil-borne seedling disease pathogens during the critical crop establishment phase, as well as eliminating diseases such as smut from within the seed embryo. This activity is complemented by the contact and systemic activity of imazalil, which provides surface protection and additional control against pathogens that cause seedling blight and leaf stripe.

Boosting early OSR establishment With over eight years’ experience of nutrition in OSR, Bionature UK knows establishment is key to an excellent OSR crop. The stabilised nutrition and unique formulation in Bionature's slow release potassium fertiliser, Delta, help to encourage rooting and branching in a young plant. This also has the effect of the plant being able to become more efficient at scavenging for moisture and nutrients. As a result, the company says it has proved that yields of 7t/ ha are achievable and its programme has been a major contributing factor in winning numerous YEN awards. Delta works by increasing cytokinin growth of a plant, which is a hormone that is responsible for rooting, tillering and branching. Early application is essential, starting at the 2–4 leaf stage, as this stimulates root growth and development, setting the plant up

to its maximum potential. Independent work with ADAS has proven that Delta increases the overall root mass of treated plants. So, the company asks: “Can you afford not to use the Bionature products on oilseed rape this season?” For more information, visit FG

The role of seed technologies in sugar beet growing Whilst there have been great developments in seed breeding and seed production, there are still some fundamental issues with sugar beet seed, where seed treatments can provide a solution. Germains Seed Technology explains more. The arrival of genetic monogerm seed made planting to a stand a more viable and cost effective alternative to planting multigerm and manual thinning or precision monogerm. However, this stimulated the need to ensure each seed station has a healthy plant in it, as any missing plants would have an impact on yield. We know getting uniform germination and establishment in the field depends on many things, including the factors that affect preparation of a good seed bed and then precision planting of good quality seed. Having top quality seed is one of many factors that come together to give a good crop; and whilst there have been great developments in seed breeding and seed production, there are still some fundamental issues with sugar beet seed, where seed treatments can provide a solution.

Several major innovations in seed technology followed the introduction of pelleted seed, which helped to protect seed and plants from pests and diseases and improve the germination and field emergence. Primed seeds first appeared commercially in the UK at the same time as the first neonicotinoid seed treatments and helped off-set some of the slowing in germination caused by the high rates of active ingredient. Since then other improved seed enhancement technologies have been developed for commercial use around the world, giving faster and more uniform establishment and leading to higher yields, in some cases 6–9% increases over pelleted seed without the treatment. Fast germination and seedling growth will be even more important in variable conditions and with fewer tools to protect the seedling.

Technologies such as priming can continue to benefit the crop by getting the seed away to a fast and uniform start. In addition to providing a uniform size and shape, coatings will continue to offer a useful route for beneficial materials to reach the seedling in the field, especially products destined to work in or be taken up from the rhizosphere. In the past this was mainly agrochemicals, now materials such as targeted nutrients and/ or bio-stimulants; including living bio-stimulants can be incorporated. This places them where they are needed so they can start delivering their benefit as soon as the seed is

planted. If this could be combined with slow release technologies larger amounts of nutrients could be placed on the seed, possibly reducing the need for other inputs. Healthier stronger plants would be more tolerant of abiotic and biotic stresses. Seed technology can continue to improve the chances of establishing a high yielding and healthy crop. The future challenges are similar to the past, but the solutions need to be both greener and more sustainable. We are going to have to use less harmful agrochemicals and work with the natural systems to optimise seed performance for a more variable environment. FG

Beet price of £40/t agreed for 2023/24 sugar beet contract NFU Sugar and British Sugar have announced a beet price of £40 per tonne for the 2023/24 sugar beet contract year, which represents a 48% price increase on last year. The offer also includes a number of new options for growers to consider as part of the contract: • Growers have the choice to purchase a yield guarantee product that protects income against yield losses • A ‘futures-linked’ variable price contract for the 2023/24 crop which enables growers to make more dynamic pricing decisions for up to 20% of their contracts • A local premium1, revised multiyear prices2 and the option of a cash advance. NFU Sugar board chair, Michael Sly, said: “I’m incredibly pleased that we are able to announce this contract offer to growers in a timely manner, which represents a significant price increase on the previous contract. “With growers facing significant cost increases, and the prices of alternative crops having risen to unprecedented levels, I am glad we agreed on a contract offer that should keep sugar beet as a valued part of growers’ rotations. I am hopeful this deal gives the opportunity for re-investment into the sugar beet sector and provides confidence for the future. “NFU Sugar has invested considerable time working constructively with British Sugar to reach this deal and this has allowed us to develop innovative features that will add value to growers. “After a couple of challenging seasons, which highlighted the increased risks growers are facing, I am pleased we have found a pioneering way of allowing growers to mitigate their yield risk. “There is no doubt that we have been concerned about the decline in

growing area over the past two years and the subsequent impact this had on the supplier base. It was important this deal addressed that and I hope now we will see that decline reverse and the industry rebound.” British Sugar managing director, Paul Kenward, said: “We are delighted to announce our contract offer for the 2023/24 growing season. The £40/t offers growers a healthy margin even at today’s high costs, compares very favourably with alternative crops, and offers yield guarantees for a small payment. “We are confident that this straightforward, attractive offer provides choice, security and profitability during an extremely challenging time for all growers. On top of a compelling price, we have listened to calls for flexibility and growers now have an option to opt-in to the new risk mitigation option we are offering for yield protection, as well as a cash advance option for the 2023 crop. “I am very positive about the future for everyone within this fantastic homegrown industry. With UK customers keen to buy from British Sugar, we are really well-placed to partner with growers for the longterm, and I am certain this contract will encourage further investment going forward. We have four wellinvested factories, a great product and an exciting story to share. Our growers are a key part of our business and I hope that this offer provides an incentive for them to continue growing next season and beyond.” FG 1.

Arable BBRO hopes to find out if field dyes deter aphids from landing on the sugar beet and, if they do, which colours prove most effective.

beet fields. BBRO is also undertaking evaluations of deploying commercially available beneficial insect products, widely used in horticulture, outdoors and on a broad-acre scale.


Thinking ‘ABCD’ for integrated aphid management In order to manage virus yellows in the future and reduce dependence on man-made pesticides, BBRO launched a new strategy (partly funded by Defra) in spring 2022 to investigate how growers can manage aphids in a more natural fashion. The research will be investigating four major techniques. Each year, BBRO delivers an aphid monitoring survey during the spring to guide growers on local aphid levels and progression of the migration. This acts as a guide for growers to monitor their crops and see if their fields have reached the population threshold for control (e.g. one green wingless aphid per four plants up to the 12-leaf stage) at which they are advised to treat the crop with a foliar aphicide. As of 2022, two aphicides are registered in sugar beet; flonicamid, sold as Teppeki by Belchim Crop Protection or Afinto by Syngenta; and acetamaprid, a neonicotinoid, marketed as InSyst by Certis. Both currently offer effective control of aphids. However, they require broad-acre spraying

and these can potentially have indirect impacts on natural predators of aphids also on the crop. Myzus persicae is also known to develop resistance to insecticides and therefore these may not offer complete or long-term aphid management into the future. Considering the limitations of relying on chemical seed treatments or broad-acre sprays, and the drawbacks these pose to the environment, BBRO is keen to investigate commercially adaptable IPM strategies for aphid control in future sugar beet crops. This latest research is proposed as four individual work packages: Attractants, Beneficials, Camouflage, and Deterrents, all of which is being overseen by BBRO’s Dr Alistair Wright (pictured).

Attractants This is the use of alternative hosts species to pull migrating winged aphids away from sugar beet. It is established that the UK’s main aphid threat, Myzus persicae,, the peach-potato aphid, has a preference for brassicas or potatoes instead of sugar beet. BBRO will soon be looking at whether growers can integrate strips of these alternative species into sugar beet species to pull aphids away from, and stop them migrating through, sugar beet fields. BBRO has effectively used strips of oilseed rape and radish within its virus yellows varietal tolerance trials since 2019. However, the organisation needs to see how this can be done commercially and economically.

Reducing the plant-soil contrast is a known method to prevent aphids from colonising plants. Manipulating this contrast can camouflage crops in plain sight from the aphids and BBRO is looking at two distinct methods to achieve this: • Cereal camo-cropping – Cereal crops are widely used to prevent wind blow damage to sugar beet when it is immature. In 2020, during the last major VY epidemic, it was widely seen that crops that were protected with a cereal (often barley) showed reduced virus symptoms. This year BBRO ran a camo-cropping campaign to encourage growers to join in and help the team work out if this can be a viable option for limiting aphid pressure. BBRO will conduct assessments on camo-cropped fields in the autumn to see if this offers a viable option. • Field dyes – Introducing a competitive species alongside the sugar beet can lead to significant competition for resources and yield loss. Therefore, BBRO is also looking at how it can reduce the plant-soil contrast in any other ways. BBRO has been trialling fabric dyes to do this and will continue looking at any other product which can be applied to disguise the sugar beet. These dyes have been applied to trial plots ahead of the expected migration of aphids into crops and any impact on yield and reduction in VY symptoms will be monitored in autumn 2022.

Deterrents and repellents BBRO’s final aspect is looking at using plantbased essentials oils to see if these can be applied to sugar beet to repel winged aphids away from the crop. These trials will start in controlled, glasshouse conditions to screen a wide range of products before moving any possible candidates onto broad-acre investigations in future years. Using the BBRO website, podcasts, British Sugar communications and grower events, the organisation intends to keep growers up-to-date with the findings to ultimately produce a practicable and


Undersowing barley.

These investigate how growers can encourage natural populations of beneficial insects into sugar beet crops by offering suitable habitats, such as wild flower strips, in and around sugar

Five tips for better slug control this autumn maintained throughout a crop’s susceptible stages. For oilseed rape, this is from drilling to the four-leaf stage and wheat from drilling to early tillering (GS21). Once slugs are found above the economic threshold (see box), or damage to the crop is observed, a slug pellet treatment should be

applied at the nearest opportunity. 3. Choose the appropriate pellet Once there is a need to treat, careful consideration should be paid to the pellet product used, as not all are equal. Choosing a wet processed pasta-based formulation like Sluxx HP will provide the best continued over…

The lead-up to harvest has been dry, so conditions have not been conducive for slug activity across much of the country. However, things can quickly change if the weather breaks and a pattern of regular rainfall kicks in. This means growers must prepare for action to prevent economic damage to new crops, so Farmers Guide asked Certis Belchim technical specialist Harry Raley for his top tips as oilseed rape drilling commences this month: 1. Prepare optimal seed beds Crop residue can provide an ideal haven for slugs, so ensure it is well managed at harvest. This is particularly important where seed is direct drilled. Removal of residue is best for slugs, but where chopping straw, set the combine up to spread residue evenly across the swath width so there are no lumps. Prepare fine and firm seed beds for drilling, as cloddy seed beds aid slug movement across the soil surface. Where heavy soil types make it difficult, earmark these higher-risk areas for monitoring once the crop is in the ground. Rolling can help consolidate after drilling and restrict slug movement. Research has shown that slug populations remain static in space and time, so mapping of patches could be useful in the long-term. 2. Monitor crops through risk period Monitoring fields ahead of drilling a new crop can be useful, but the key to reducing crop damage is watching for slug activity once the crop is drilled. Vigilance should be

palatability, durability, and ballistic properties for accurate spreading. A pellet’s chelating agent is also important, as this is the substance in ferric phosphate pellets that ensures the active substance is absorbed into the slug’s gut. Certis Belchim pellets made with Ferric Field Technology contain EDDS, which has been proven to remain effective for longer in wet conditions than the EDTA contained in other formulations. 4. Think about baiting points Slugs are proven random feeders. Therefore, when a particularly vulnerable crop like oilseed rape is emerging, it’s important to have a high number of baiting points on the ground. This increases the chances of the pest bumping into the pellets before the seedlings. The ferric phosphate mini pellet Menorexx is made with the same formulation as Sluxx HP but is smaller and provides more baiting points per kilogram. This helps stack the odds in favour of the crop when under slug pressure. For example, Menorexx offers 67 baiting points/m2 at a 5kg/ha field rate, compared to 42/m2 at 5kg/ha of Sluxx HP. This means at an OSR plant population of 50/m2, slugs will be just over 10% more likely to bump into a pellet before the crop. Later in the autumn, when conditions become wetter and more challenging, Sluxx HP will be the better choice, as the larger pellet will be inherently more durable.

5. Apply pellets accurately Unlike banned metaldehyde pellets, ferric phosphate baits are relatively environmentally benign and approved for use in organic production. However, that doesn’t mean that responsible and accurate application is no longer important. Input prices are also going up, so making the most of every application will help control costs. Applicators should be NSTS tested by law every five years, but it is recommended that a professional test is carried out once a year ahead of the main pellet use period. Operators should also check setup and calibrate applicators regularly, particularly when switching between products, as pellets all have different ballistic properties. To help with this, Certis Belchim offers the online Calibration Wizard tool, which provides settings for each of its products when using most applicators. Entering the pellet and spreader type, spread width and application rate into the tool will provide operators with the correct applicator settings and forward speed for accurate application. FG

Black-grass control strategy is now essentially a four-stage process Trumpington Farm general manager David Knott is pleased with the accuracy and quick set-up on the Avacast GR 400.

Applying Avadex as you drill remains key to maximising its effectiveness when keeping black-grass under control, says Cambridgeshire farmer David Knott. Targeted use of Avadex (tri-allate) as part of a four-stage black-grass management process involving cultural control tools, sterile seed beds, improved cultivation techniques and stacking flufenacet-based selective herbicides have all proved to be successful components of a containment strategy implemented by general manager David Knott of Trumpington Farms, based in the south-west corner of Cambridge. The 3,500ha farming business, where crops are predominantly grown on heavy clay with challenging drainage, had seen its black-grass issues exacerbated following recent warm winters giving David and his team a timely opportunity to reassess their control strategy. He says: “Although we have worked extremely hard to reduce our overall black-grass burden to a manageable level in most fields, it’s unlikely we will eradicate it completely. The whole issue now is one of containment and targeted

control given that we have not had a grassweed herbicide with a new mode of action for decades now. A lack of hard winter frosts and snow has not helped either, with nothing to kill off the autumn black-grass or delay it from emerging again in the spring. “Black-grass has been, and still is, a massive contributing factor to yield loss but, whilst recent industry attention has moved onto trendier topics such as sustainability, biodiversity and carbon trading the blackgrass battle seems to have become a forgotten war – and a losing one, since the 2009 ban on isoproturon and subsequent resistance issues with ALS inhibitor herbicides. It’s disappointing that very few genuinely new solutions have come forward since. “Having already widened our rotation to one-in-four for oilseed rape and implemented some improved cultivation techniques to limit the disturbance of any dormant blackgrass seed just below the soil surface,

we made a key move to maximise the efficacy of the Avadex that we use within our control strategy, by investing in our own applicator in order to ensure it was applied as we drilled – well within the key 48-hour post-drilling window. “Like many large farming operations, we had historically relied on contractors to apply Avadex granules post-drilling. However, working on 40m tramlines, we’d often found that our contractor, who used an 18m applicator, always left intermediate wheelings in the newly drilled crops – which became even more problematic if the work had been done in wet heavy soil conditions. The other big issue when using contractors was always delays, either due to poor weather or busy diaries. “In September 2020, following some market research on the applicators out there, we invested in an Avacast GR400, which we mounted onto our 12m Horsch Sprinter drill. Opting to side mount, rather than rear mount, for easier hopper accessibility when refilling, meant we needed to raise the height of the Avacast GR400 for additional ground clearance. Manufacturer Techneat Engineering was excellent and hands-on in designing a new bracket enabling us to position the new machine exactly where we wanted it. “Although the applicator is specifically designed for applying Avadex granules, it can also be used to apply slug pellets when we drill oilseed rape. The machine is quick to set up, easy to calibrate and uses a powerful hydraulic fan to deliver the Avadex to spreader plates positioned every 500mm along the full width of the drill, providing double overlap and ensuring

even distribution. “The Avacast GR400 comes with its own cab-mounted control box and a manually operated on-off switch for headland control, but we’ve opted to link both these into our Trimble FmX guidance system, so it is now fully automated. This then allows the operator to concentrate purely on the drilling operation. “When setting up the Avacast, an important tip is to ensure its spreader plates are positioned well behind any soil disturbance during the drilling process, so that no Avadex-to-seed contact occurs. “Our new black-grass control strategy is now essentially a four-stage process. We use medium or light-tine cultivation immediately post-harvest, then spray off any volunteers and remaining black-grass with glyphosate to create a stale seedbed pre-drilling. As we drill, we simultaneously apply both diammonium phosphate placed underneath the seed and Avadex over the soil surface of the newly drilled seed to create a protective layer, preventing any dormant black-grass seed near the surface from germinating. We then apply two flufenacet-based herbicides for preand post-emergence control of any later emerging weeds that get past the Avadex barrier,” he concludes. FG

The Avacast GR 400 is deliberately side-mounted on the company's Horsch Sprinter 12m drill for easier hopper accessibility.

Arable Typhoon untreated.

Established favourites to find favour again ‘Old’ favourites like Extase, Skyscraper, Graham and Gleam will continue to hold a firm place in the market, visitors to Bayer’s Long Sutton open day in July were told. Limagrain’s Ron Granger took growers through the extensive variety trials and noted that few of the new candidate varieties offered much above what we already have. With no new Group 1 candidates, he said “it’s as you were”, but did highlight renewed interest in Crusoe. In his view, it is a variety that has stood the test with millers needing high protein wheat – but you’ve got to keep the brown rust out he warned. Despite three candidate varieties, it was a similar picture in the Group 2 category. Mr Granger felt there was little to challenge Extase. “It’s got a good disease package with bold grain and good specific weight. If you can get additional protein content then there’s opportunities for an additional bonus of a bread making premium,” he noted. He also likes the look of Palladium – having similar septoria and yellow rust scores to Extase, but without its eyespot susceptibility. It also looks good for protein and is better suited to an earlier drilling date in his view. At 8.4, Mayflower has a better septoria rating than both and gets a 9 for yellow rust. It also has good specific weight but at 97% is 4% behind Extase. However, he expects some millers may be interested, so again a possible premium opportunity. For those targeting biscuit and distilling markets, Astronomer is still the stand out variety in his view. “It’s a great package with good scores for septoria and the rusts, good yield, high specific weight and, although a taller variety, is stiff strawed.”

Possible partner New to the list is Rashid and he considers it a possible partner to

Astronomer. It has a similar disease profile with good grain quality, straw strength and OWBM resistance, but a later maturity. Illuminate is his other choice, especially for the North. “Illuminate is a good fit as it can be drilled earlier and like Astronomer has a 7 rating for sprouting resistance giving growers security at harvest time. But its lower yellow rust and septoria ratings mean it will need more managing.” In the Group 4 category, he expects Gleam and Graham to remain popular again next season. He noted they are both consistent performers. For those looking to replace them possibly, he described Dawsum as Costello but with 4% better yield. It meets his criteria of a good ‘all-round’ package with good disease resilience, stiff straw, bold grain with good specific weight.

Good all-round package With its high yield performance Champion is certainly worth considering but its straw strength will need managing. However, it does have a great disease resistance package to offer. Those requiring a good all-round package may also want to consider Typhoon. With good scores for rusts and septoria it too has a strong disease resistance. It is one of the later developers so ‘sits and tillers’; again, one for those looking for varieties for the earlier drilling situation or the regen path. For those with a black-grass issue, Cranium is worth a look. “Its spring vigour is a good weapon to compete and smoother black grass,” Mr Granger noted. But a challenger to the highest

yielding varieties on the AHDB RL is on the horizon. He described Redwald as “Sundance on steroids” and thinks it will go on to match Champion for yield. A possible weakness is eyespot, with limited data of a (2) suggesting it may be susceptible. He acknowledges that azole such as prothioconazole offers effective control but he advised those in eyespot areas should look for varieties with the Pch1 gene.

Beyond gross output Alongside his specific variety selections, the overriding message from Mr Granger was to think beyond gross output. He said varietal decisions need to be made on ‘all-round’ agronomics to give more consistent performance, particularly in more challenging seasons. When it comes to blends, Mr Granger is still to be convinced. He said that putting the ideal blend together was a difficult task and that some blends could actually add complications for management on farm. “Warrior yellow rust is a soup of different strains. A susceptible variety in a blend of resistant varieties could break genetics quicker, especially if the disease is not eradicated totally and allowed to bubble along in the crop. For those interested in blends, I would suggest selecting varieties with good but different disease resistant profiles – in that way it should help protect genetics,” he advised. Bayer’s Ben Giles agreed, and told visitors that any blend is likely to delay disease development rather than thwart it. “It might slow the disease development with strong rust varieties proving a physical barrier to spore movement through the blend

or resilient septoria varieties slowing spread from splash borne events. This might buy a bit of time. But if your G1 blend includes Zyatt and you base your programme around Crusoe, you could be in trouble,” he warned. Mr Granger’s point about an allround package was echoed by Bayer’s commercial technical manager, Ella Crawford. She explained that, although Long Sutton is a prone yellow rust site, septoria and eyespot pressure also played a part in the early season. She noted that the most effective programmes were those that included actives with good protection against both septoria and yellow rust at the T1 timing. Also of note was the performance of folpet. At Bayer’s Callow site there was little visible benefit from the addition of the multisite at T1 on septoria infection, but at Long Sutton the inclusion of folpet appeared to help, plots retaining more green leaf area. Ms Crawford believes this is probably down to the fact that the dry April many eastern counties experienced helped suppress septoria pressure, meaning T1 applications were applied to clean leaf 3s. “It probably helped boost protection when the rain did arrive in May,” she said. However, there is a cost and she pointed out that T1 plots treated with 1.2-litres/ha of Ascra (prothioconazole + bixafen + fluopyram) had performed just as well, and it was probably the more economic option. “When harvested we’ll assess yield results to compare the cost versus benefit of each treatment,” she noted.

New research helps farmers to develop ryegrass control strategies After a decade in which most research and advice has focused on black-grass, two recently completed research pieces from NIAB/Bayer are helping to rectify this. Heading up both projects, NIAB’s John Cussans (pictured) was keen to see if anecdotal reports of ryegrass becoming more of a problem were backed up by hard data. Mr Cussans believes the summer 2021 ryegrass survey is the largest to be carried out in the UK so far, with samples and questionnaires received from 197 farmers. All samples were tested for sensitivity to flufenacet, pinoxaden (Axial) and ALS herbicides (Atlantis), with 22 of the samples also being used in a cross-resistance

study covering six different herbicides. The second piece of research focused on the performance of glyphosate against 50 difficult ryegrass populations from the UK. According to Bayer’s herbicide campaign manager, Tom Chilcott, the survey results show a ‘normal’ cross section of arable farms across the UK, but what is interesting is that Italian ryegrass seems to affect different types of

farms right across the country – which shows ryegrass could become a problem anywhere. Most of the respondents are reducing cultivation intensity, growing more spring crops, and have a reduced OSR area, which are current trends. Resistance test results for Atlantis (mesosulfuron + iodosulfuron) and Axial (pinoxaden + cloquintocet) show that post-em herbicides can still be effective on many farms. Some 45.6% of samples were still susceptible to Atlantis, and 45.6% to Axial. Despite the percentage figure being the same, they are not relating to exactly the same populations. The tests did note some serious resistance too, with 22.6% and 15.9% of samples being RRR resistant to Atlantis and Axial respectively. Mr Cussans summed this up as representing a “really complicated resistance landscape”, and said that he believes far too many growers are using Axial as a “fire brigade” treatment, while, in general, application of Atlantis is being done more reasonably – although there is still scope for a little more planning. Turning to pre-ems, all 197 samples were tested for sensitivity to straight flufenacet, with 70% still

fully susceptible but the remaining 30% showing reduced sensitivity and resistance. Whilst concerning, this shouldn’t cause too much alarm, reckons Mr Cussans. “Surveys of this kind tend to attract farmers who are worried, so are biased towards difficult populations. So, I don’t think 30% of all Italian ryegrass populations have reduced sensitivity or resistance. But the potential is there, so it needs to be prevented.” The other reason for optimism is that flufenacet is not used as a single active for control – it is typically used alongside diflufenican in Liberator and can be tank-mixed and sequenced with various actives. When analysing glyphosate performance, Bayer’s Roger Bradbury explained results show that, although there is some variation in levels of sensitivity to glyphosate, no resistance was found in field populations. Also, the level of sensitivity to glyphosate was not correlated to resistance status to selective herbicides. Nevertheless, farmers need to stay aware of the risks according to Mr Cussans, as he commented: “We are as close to glyphosate resistance today, as we have ever been.” FG

Benefits of a pedestal grain cooling system

Are you ready?

01621 868 138 |

The Plug&Cool Poly Pedestal system, combined with the energy-efficient aluminium fan, allows you to change the temperature of your stored grain. This is done by using outside air that is at a different temperature than the grain indoors. It’s important to keep grain cool, as warmer temperatures make it easier for mould to grow and for insects to thrive. One way to monitor the grain’s temperature is to use probes throughout various areas of the grain pile. The probes will take a reading of the temperature, giving you more control over the cooling process. According to Plug&Cool, the main benefit of using a pedestal system compared with ventilated flooring is simple; the cost. It is by far cheaper and more cost-effective to purchase the complete pedestal system for your store, compared with installing hardwood flooring. It’s also easier to target different areas of the grain pile, as the pedestal system is relatively easy to move around the grain store. The individual,

vertical pedestals can work in grain piles of up to 6m deep and have a cooling radius of 5m around each pedestal. The fan on top of the pedestal continually sucks air, pulling it through the grain which ultimately cools the grain down. This will then preserve the quality of the grain throughout warmer conditions. The complete Plug&Cool package includes four pedestals, four 1.1kW aluminium fans, and all the accessories. Most importantly, the Multi-Zone control panel is included, which the company says is integral to controlling the temperature of your grain. FG

Realising best value and reducing all possible waste must be a priority

Evans & Pearce managing director, Rob White, says let’s make sure all that grain hits the market worth its full value and with no deductions. As the war in Ukraine continues, the news now brings reports of disruption to grain exports and getting crops out of Ukraine. For the UK grain markets, prices are at unprecedented levels and ever-rising input costs add further uncertainty for the future. It is vital that we ensure grain going into the store is managed correctly and well

ventilated. Realising best value and reducing all possible waste must be a priority. According to Mr White, while there are several reasons for this, inadequate or badly managed ventilation are the primary ones. He explains further below. AHDB recommends an airflow of 6ft3 per minute (cfm) per stored

tonne of crop, for successful postharvest cooling and conditioning. You can get away with lower ventilation rates if the weather is on your side and fans run at the right times, but there is a much higher risk of storage spoilage and financial deductions from the buyer. Pedestal ventilation systems are incredibly successful in the UK, partly due to the low purchase and running costs. As a guide, it will cost about £4 per stored tonne of crop to purchase a pedestal system – a system at this cost will do a reasonable job, but airflow will not be at the AHDB recommended volume. An extra £2–£2.50, will see airflows rise by 150% and put you in line with AHDB recommendations. Fans move air, Polycool grain cooling pedestals distribute the air evenly through the bulk. When planning a store, we begin with the intended stored tonnage to calculate the quantity of fans needed, then we look at how many pedestals are required to move the volume of air, without any areas under ventilated. If air drawn through the crop is

always colder than the crop itself, the only result can be cooling. Too often running fans is mismanaged as autumn time pressures create distractions from store monitoring. For effective cooling, air temperatures are ideally 4–6°C lower than that of the crop (therefore a difference in the temperatures). A differential controller, such as Grain Fan Assist (GFA), monitors the storage temperature, compares it to ambient air temperature and decides when fans should be turned on and off – invariably be between 2am and 6am during early autumn. The AHDB states that in some situations differential temperature control can save up to 40% in electricity costs over a manually controlled system. With electricity prices increasing, it’s worth using differential temperatures to your advantage and to save on electricity. Regular monitoring of storage temperatures and cooling rates is key. Modern technology means no one must be there but fan running times need to be correct and storage temperatures need to be monitored so problem areas can be dealt with quickly. FG

Arable breeding programme. We select plants with good strong stems that stand well as a matter of course,” he adds. ”In France, stem-based light leaf spot, or Cylindrosporium, is recognised to be a serious disease of oilseed rape in its own right and is included in the Terres Inovia Recommended List, the French equivalent of the AHDB RL.” All of Limagrain’s varieties currently on the RL have been scored for cylindrosporium in the breeder’s own trials, as well as for LLS in the RL programme. To illustrate this, Mr Wilkinson refers to Limagrain trials carried out in 2020. “We evaluated the stem health of several varieties that all held the same light leaf spot score of 7 on the AHDB RL (1 being clean, through to 9 which was fully diseased). “Aurelia was scored an excellent score of 2 for overall stem health, Ambassador and LG Aviron scored a very good 3, but one variety only scored a 6 despite also holding a light leaf spot rating of 7! “The important message here is to look behind the headline scores and don’t assume that a good overall light leaf spot score translates into a good stem health score. “So the first step in protecting harvest losses is having the right genetics,” notes Mr Wilkinson. “In doing so this then provides an excellent foundation for management practices such as pod stick and timing desiccation correctly, to bring an additional level of protection which ensures that every seed possible gets into the combine.” FG

Genetics: Protecting oilseed rape yields at harvest Losses in the period up to harvest in oilseed rape can often be high. However, there are several ways that these can be kept to a minimum, says Liam Wilkinson, development officer for arable crops for Limagrain UK. against other commercial varieties so we can be confident in our claims that the variety really is pod shatter resistant. “Limagrain varieties that carry the trait are LG Auckland, Ambassador, LG Aviron, Aurelia, Antigua, Artemis, LG Antigua and Clearfield variety Constructor and this plays out in their high yields and subsequent leading position on the current AHDB Recommended List. “POSH resistance can also help to provide some flexibility in the timing of the harvest, which can be as much as 14 days extra in our tests,” he says. “In addition, a robust POSH resistance cuts down the number of volunteers in the following crop, easing the burden of weed control. It is also relevant to look at the overall stem health of a variety as a lodged crop is not going to be easy to harvest, adds Mr Wilkinson. Of the diseases that can affect the health of the stem he believes that light leaf spot is the biggest threat. “Previously considered a disease of the north, this is no longer the case as a result of mutations and a reduction in azole efficacy, alongside milder winter weather has resulted in it spreading across the UK. “Varieties offer good light leaf disease resistance ratings on the AHDB RL, but it’s important to

recognise that in the UK, light leaf spot on the stem is not something that is scored for in the AHDB RL, it’s only the leaves that are scored for disease,” he says. “Varieties with similar light leaf scores on the AHDB RL, will in reality have very different stem health scores. “So incidences of stem infection often go unreported, resulting in unnecessary yield and quality reductions. “But it’s been a key focus for us across the Limagrain European

Severity Score (1: clean; 9: disease)

“Choosing to grow a variety with built in pod shatter resistance is one of the most important things you can do,” Mr Wilkinson says. “Last year, some crops were devastated by storms whilst others appeared relatively unscathed, which showed very clearly, the value of pod shatter resistance.” Pod shatter is a natural process for seed dispersion in oilseed rape; however, on farm it can result in significant seed loss caused by heavy wind, rain, hailstones, or the combine passing through the crop. The pod shatter (POSH) resistance gene was originally introduced into OSR together with the restorer gene from radish. Not all hybrids carry POSH resistance as the trait can be lost in the breeding process to improve the restorer. Pod shatter is not an either/or trait, but one that can be quantified by the force required to break a ripe pod, points out Mr Wilkinson “At Limagrain, we precisely quantify pod shatter resistance using lab-based techniques, where the force required to shatter the pod is measured, and this clearly shows that not all POSH resistant varieties offer the same level of resistance,” he says. “All of our hybrids contain the trait and we constantly monitor the efficacy of our pod shatter resistance

Arable Replacing bagged nitrogen in milling wheats

“Insecticide-free” wheat varieties fast-tracked The first winter wheat varieties with resistance to both barley yellow dwarf virus and orange wheat blossom midge are expected to be launched commercially in autumn 2023, offering the prospect of insecticide-free wheat for many growers. RAGT Seeds is fast-tracking seed production of two varieties up for full Recommended List consideration in 2023. On-farm multiplication of commercial seed will take place this coming season to help meet anticipated high demand in autumn 2023. Both varieties are Group 4 hard types, like RGT Wolverine, which in 2019 became the first commercial wheat in Europe with BYDV resistance. However, the new Group 4s are very different prospects, according to Tom Dummett, RAGT’s cereal and OSR product manager. “When it comes to yield potential and disease resistance these new Group 4s are without doubt a big improvement – and they have OWBM resistance,” he says. “They are also better suited for early sowing, which is where BYDV-resistant varieties will come into their own.” Their dual resistance means many crops won’t have to be sprayed with insecticides at all, which is already causing milling growers to prick up their ears, says Mr Dummett. Fortunately, RAGT has three very promising milling wheats resistant to both pests that are excelling in screening trials and, if they make the grade, will be ready for launch in 2025. “We have a very large pipeline of varieties mostly with virus resistance and midge resistance. All different backgrounds, all different quality classes, but these milling wheats look particularly exciting,” he says. “Two of the three varieties have an RGT Illustrious background, and one has Skyfall. They have been extensively tested by end users and all

are labelled as high-quality bread wheats.”

Robust resistance The resistance gene, Bdv2, was introduced from a wild goat grass and has been used commercially in Australia for two decades, proving robust, with no signs of breaking down. RAGT has also been testing the concept in the UK under extreme pressure for the past three seasons, comparing several of the company’s near-market, high-performance BYDVresistant varieties against a selection of widely grown Recommended List wheats. Plots were sown in early September and inoculated several times during the season with BYDV-infected aphids. As in previous years, the BYDV-resistant wheats plots are showing no symptoms obviously associated with the disease, but conventional varieties are all affected, some severely. “We are expecting a repeat of the last two years when all the inoculated conventional winter wheats exhibited severe BYDV symptoms and produced lower yields, up to 18% last year,” says Mr Dummett. “The results show the Bdv2 gene offers protection from the day the wheat emerges until the day it is harvested. Resistance costs about the same as buying and applying a single pyrethroid spray and greatly simplifies crop management while benefiting the environment.” All wheats containing the Bdv2 gene will be sold under RAGT’s new Genserus brand (genetic security virus). A new logo will be used on all branding, and each variety will begin with the letter G, ensuring the resistance technology stands out from the pack.

RAGT is investigating the use of companion crops to manipulate grain nitrogen levels in milling wheat and spring barley to reduce the crops’ environmental footprint and potentially reduce costs. Two large blocks of milling wheats have been intercropped with nitrogen-fixing cover crop species to see if the technique might replace some bagged nitrogen and improve protein production efficiency. The trial is using November-sown RGT Illustrious and Skyfall under two nitrogen regimes of 280kg/ ha and 250kg/ha, grown together with a range of clovers – a micro-clover, which consists of 90% root and 10% leaf, red clover, white clover, red and white clover, and fallow. The clover was stitched into the wheat in the spring using a light drill. The aim is to establish a permanent understorey. RAGT managing director, Lee Bennett, says: “It’s not unheard of to fix 200kg/ha of N, so it is going to be interesting to see what we can achieve when we have wellestablished clover.” A similar technique is being tested on stands of malting barleys RGT Planet and RGT Asteroid. These have been overlaid by a matrix of catch crops – vetch, radish/phacelia, forage rape/ berseem clover/vetch – and fallow. Each variety plot has been divided, with one receiving a ‘standard’ nitrogen application of 120kg/ha and the other a reduced 100kg/ha. The companion crops were planted as soon the preceding wheat was cut then sprayed off with glyphosate in January just before the spring barley was drilled. “We’re looking to see whether the companions retain more soil N or create more, and whether we can produce guidelines to help growers reduce inorganic N use in barley while still hitting quality and specification,” says Mr Bennett. “One global maltster is very interested in this, and we will roll this work out in support of European colleagues as well. We’ve started conservatively, but it could be that the right catch crops could provide most, if not all of, the nitrogen that malting barley crops require.” FG

BYDV-resistant wheat plots (as on right) showed no symptoms obviously associated with the disease, but conventional varieties were affected.

News Saving costs with palletiser refurb service Bradley Engineering Ltd is well known for its Agristack range of robotic palletisers; however, what is less well known is that the company also offers a palletiser refurbishment service. This means that if you have an existing robotic palletiser with an ageing robot that has started to become troublesome, the company will, for a fixed price, replace the robot arm and re-furbish the ancillary equipment to keep you operational. This is often a more viable alternative for the smaller grower who may not have the tonnage to warrant a complete replacement machine. Fixed price refurbishment and robot replacement usually prices in at around 30% of a replacement machine. For those that don't have a palletiser but aren't looking for a new one, used refurbished palletisers are available at 50% of the cost of new on average. The company has a large stock of new, used and refurbished parts for older robots on the market, such as the common ABB6400 S4/C/C+, available for

Is your grassland winter-ready?

Now is the time to be thinking about preparing your grassland for winter. Manufacturer Ceres says its Sub-Line Grassland Subsoiler is a low-cost, but highly efficient way to rejuvenate and sustain healthy grassland, by relieving compression from the year’s livestock, water and general traffic – with minimal disturbance, and helping to prevent water damage and further compression throughout the winter. 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, thus enabling the roots and microbacteria to fulfil their potential, Ceres explains. The strong environmental credentials of this

machine include its contoured, low-draft legs, which are mounted in-line, achieving great lift and shatter with minimal horsepower and fuel consumption. It also helps water dissipate through the soil structure preventing flash run-off, or worse, standing water that will further compact the soil, deprive the soil of oxygen and emit greenhouse gases.

Additionally, like all Ceres machinery, the SubLine is designed, built and manufactured in the United Kingdom, reducing its carbon footprint. The Sub-Line is suitable for all levels of soil management, including contractors and farmers, and as it has been designed for UK soils, it can be more effective than other more expensive machines. The leading discs have independent suspension to help prevent damage to the discs and overload and shock of bearings. All of the discs can 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 legs are mounted on the substantial frame, with two M16 shear bolts for protection. The legs, knock on points and all other wearing components are widely available, which reduces cost and downtime. It is equipped with a 460mm diameter flat rear roller, which 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. The Sub-Line is available from a single leg machine up to a five-leg machine. All sizes are compatible with Category 2 linkage, from 40–190hp. FG

Plenty of choice under the sustainable banner This year’s Groundswell event proved popular, and exhibitors reported that although visitor numbers were moderate, those who came were keen to find out about the latest machinery to improve soils, drill and incorporate cover crops, and establish main crops using reduced cultivation techniques. David Williams reports. New mounted disc option The J.J. Metcalfe & Son display featured a new Sow & Hoe seed coulter, designed to cut off weeds and bring the roots to the surface to dry out, while placing a 12mm band of cover crop seed at the rear. The one-pass establishment tool was designed primarily for vineyard use, although it has applications for UK organic farms too. Also displayed for the first time at the event was a mounted disc option to suit Horsch Sprinter and CO drills. Designed to cut through trash, and reduce surface disturbance by the following coulters, the discs cost £250–300 per unit including the mounting. Mike Metcalfe is pictured with the new discs on the stand.

Perfect seed placement

Multiple applications Garford managing director Jonathan Henry said that demand for mechanical inter-row weeders is growing as farmers seek to reduce dependence on herbicides. “Tighter regulatory control is a factor and growers are keen to protect future use of actives we have currently available through the use of blended control systems, where a mix of chemical and mechanical weed control is utilised. “Our guided toolbars are extremely versatile, and up to 20 per cent of those we supply are equipped to perform at least two functions, such as applying fertiliser or performing spray chemical applications while hoeing the crop,” he explained. Jonathan said that the question asked of his team most frequently during the show was whether the inter-row hoes would work in cereals – highlighting growing demand from farmers for large-scale mechanical weed control.

Preaching to the converted

Considerable interest in the Dale Eco drill was reported by directors James (left) and Tom Dale. “This was a show where we knew we were preaching to the converted,” explained Tom. “However, we offer tine drills where many of our competitors feature disc coulters, and the tines mean we can operate with a lower drill weight as tines penetrate hard ground more effectively. We use narrow tines which are easy to pull, and we can offer a wide range of specification options. The drills are easily set up and adapted for establishing companion or cover crops and most of the hoppers we supply are split allowing multiple products to be placed. Row spacing is adjustable too, and up to 75cm is possible,” he added. Dale also displayed the Meir low disturbance subsoiler which is designed to achieve thorough soil loosening while minimising movement on the surface. Dale Drills’ own leg and point design is used and there are various packer options.

Machinery Successful first season Novag exhibited its drills last year at Groundswell for the first time, although Covid-19 restrictions meant that none of the French manufacturer’s representatives could be present. However, this year there were specialists to answer questions who were kept busy throughout the event. Bradfordon-Avon based Monkton Farleigh Farm farm manager Andrew Tucker (right) is pictured with Novag sales manager Lucas Zickermann. Andrew purchased a Novag drill last year and used it to successfully establish all his autumn and spring cropping. “I didn’t see a Novag drill operating before I placed my order, but I had looked at a Cross Slot drill which has a similar seeding design,” he explained. “One of my main concerns when moving from a conventional establishment regime using one of the UK’s most popular drills to a zero-tillage system was whether the drill would penetrate hard ground and maintain a constant depth, but the Novag drills are well made and heavy and it hasn’t been a problem. We

Low-disturbance options

established 400ha of arable crops including wheat, oilseed rape, spring barley, spring beans, linseed, and cover crops and by late June they were all looking well, and we were looking forward to finding out how they all yielded at harvest. “Our soils are mainly Cotswold Brash – very shallow with lots of stones, and I think a key advantage of the Novag design is that the seeds aren’t placed in a hard slot where they are vulnerable to wet or dry conditions, or slugs – in fact, we didn’t use slug pellets at all this year

– even after cover crops.” Andrew said that the Novag drill proved easy to set up and use – even though any instruction he needed had to be provided through video calls with the French-based team. “The back-up was excellent, and I am very pleased with our decision to invest in the Novag drill,” he explained. “Having sold our previous conventional drill, we are dependent now on the Novag, but we did keep an old power-harrow drill which will be good for levelling if the fields become uneven.”

Reducing the tilled area Kverneland area sales representative Don Campbell is pictured with the company’s Kultistrip strip-till cultivator. Versions up to 6m and 12 rows working width are available, and Don explained that with 45cm row spacing, less than 50% of the ground service is moved. “Most demand is for establishing spring crops such as sugar beet, maize and pumpkins although demand is growing for vegetables too,” he continued. “Some growers prepare a tilth in the autumn then leave it to overwinter before a pass to freshen it up ahead of drilling in the spring, but there are other users who delay cultivations until just before planting, and drill crops immediately after. “Additional uses include slurry incorporation, and there are users applying fertiliser in the strips too. This sort of reduced tillage system is what people are talking about currently.”

Arable version A new version of the Moore UniDrill was displayed at the event. ‘’The existing Guttler Packer was specifically designed for grassland work, so we have introduced a new pneumatic tyre packer to cater better to arable applications,’’ explained Moore UniDrill’s sales specialist, Arron Pearce. ‘’This allows working in adverse conditions as well as in direct drill, min-till or conventional drilling situations. The chassis is longer which increases space for increased trash flow. With the introduction of levelling boards and optional following harrows, a consolidated seedbed is left for maximum seed germination.’’

Cost-effective drone crop monitoring DroneAg has increased the functionality of its crop scanning app, allowing growers to monitor and assess their oilseed rape crops, from pod development through ripening to senescence. “Using our subscriptionbased monitoring app allows growers to scan their crops as often as they like, to accurately determine the best times for crop treatments and applications so that best practise can be achieved,” explained sales and marketing director Dan Lambe (right) who is pictured with DroneAg founder Jack Wrangham. Dan added that an Android version of the company’s Skippy Scout crop scanning app is being introduced primarily for overseas markets where availability of Apple smartphones is less widespread than in the UK.

No-tillage, no problem On-farm drain system planning John Deere main dealer Tuckwells displayed a Shelton trencher, a Zurn Top-Cut Collect weed seed head collector, and a John Deere 750A directdrill. The Zurn Top-Cut Collect has proved a successful investment for several UK contractors this season – who are offering a black-grass head removal service to customers. “It cuts off and collects weed and volunteer heads which stick out above the crop,” explained Zurn UK director George Dance who was assisting on the Tuckwells stand. “Herbicide-resistant weeds remain a major problem, and in many situations removing the heads completely from the field just before the main crop is harvested is proving an effective control option.” Tuckwell farms farm manager Kris Grzelak was also on the stand – explaining benefits of the T3rra water management software which is compatible with John Deere iGrade. “We have used it on the Tuckwell family farm very successfully,” he said. “It allows precise vertical control of implements in multiple planes and it’s easy to survey the site to obtain elevation data, then design a drainage scheme online, and apply it by sending the work instruction to the John Deere in-cab display. It can be used just as easily for installing a single drain or a complete scheme, and the same software is suitable for land forming too,” he added.

Predictive disease modelling Sencrop provides a subscriptionbased weather station service, using data from a large network of weather stations across the UK and Europe. Customers simply purchase one or more stations which are installed on their farms, and data sent from the stations to Sencrop’s ‘cloud’ is available to subscribers through a user-friendly smartphone app. Various subscription levels are available depending on the number of stations installed and how many users need access to the data. Larger farms operating at multiple locations have reported significant cost-and time-saving benefits from using Sencrop’s system. One of the main benefits has been when adverse weather conditions have prevented fieldwork at one location and checking the app has revealed that conditions remain suitable elsewhere. “This show has been excellent,” explained Sencrop UK sales manager Harry Atkinson. “The farmers here are quick to recognise benefits of the exclusive service we offer, including features recently added such as crop disease modelling. Our cercospora model has been assessed by British Sugar, and it was concluded that treatments applied at the time of warnings provided by our system were most effective. We are continuing to develop new features, including irrigation modelling for potatoes.”

Machinery Tilth: An advantage this year Geoff Claydon is pictured with a UKmanufactured Claydon Evolution 4.8m drill at the event. New Evolution models feature a larger hopper, simpler drilling depth adjustment, improved pressure adjustment for the rear ski-boards and the opportunity to fit a wider range of seeding attachments. “For a growing season like this one, the tilth created by our unique coulter system provided huge benefits,” he explained. “Usually, we have a few hard frosts which crack clods on the surface and create natural tilth which provides benefits whatever type of drill is used, but that didn’t happen this year so where there was no tilth, the moisture losses were higher, and early spring growth was slow. Where growers had surface tilth, this provided insulation and contained the moisture and we saw better early crop development compared to where zero-tillage techniques and disc drills were used. Many Claydon users are predicting a favourable harvest.”

Strip-tillage solution The Carre Inro strip-till cultivator generated many enquiries on importer KRM’s stand. Most demand is to prepare land for seeding using precision drills which place seeds directly into the cultivated strip, explained the company. Biggest cost and carbon reductions are achieved when it is used for direct crop establishment, although interest is growing for interrow companion crop seeding too. Seeding units are an option, and disc coulters are used mainly for establishing oilseed rape. Fertiliser application and slurry incorporation systems are also available. The four-row rigid frame Inro displayed costs £23,670, and a larger 12-row mounted model is approximately £69,000.

Pictured with the Inro are area sales managers Chris Wear (left) and David Wagstaff.

Inter-cropping cleaner McArthur Agriculture specialises in grain equipment and storage. A JCM VibroMax grader displayed on the stand allows multiple crops to be separated and cleaned to a high standard in a single pass at rates up to 40tph. “We started offering the grader as a solution for farmers who were inter-cropping last year, and sold several,” explained regional sales manager Terry Royston. “I feel that we are at the tip of a rapidly growing market which is very exciting. The three-stage dresser removes impurities and admixture to the high level of cleanliness required, and it will clean and prepare crops for conventional markets too. “We offer smaller cleaners with just two screens which could also be used, although multiple passes are needed to separate multiple crops, so the process takes longer. However, for those starting out and just dipping their toe in the water with inter-cropping these provide a practical and cost-effective solution.”

Protecting the soil Essex-based Brocks Wheel & Tyre supplies complete wheel and tyre assemblies for tractors, self-propelled sprayers, and other agricultural machines. “As we expected, most enquiries at this event have been for high performance tyre options to reduce compaction and soil damage,” explained BWT business development manager Eugene Brock (pictured). “We stock and supply many BKT and Bridgestone VF and IF tyres which operate at lower inflation pressures while carrying the same weight as conventional radial tyres. “Using VF tyres also allows narrower options to be fitted while maintaining the same ground contact area, making them ideal for selfpropelled sprayers. This is an advantage for road transport, and it also reduces the amount of crop run down later in the season. As a wheel supplier, we have been very much aware of the changes in agriculture in recent years, including regenerative farming, and can recommend and supply a range of options for most machines and situations.”

Machinery Steel fencing solution McVeigh Parker supplies livestock equipment and fencing across the whole of the UK through a network of eight branches. Director, Chris Hambridge (pictured), explained that the company offers a wide range of fence types, but its speciality is all-steel fencing which lasts much longer than traditional wood construction. The company’s Triple X fencing system consists of all-steel posts with integral fence wire clips, X Fence wire netting, steel strainers and a choice of metal wire types. It has recently been approved and qualifies for government grants. It costs approximately 20% more per metre than traditional creosotetreated wood, but over a 30-year period the cost works out at just over half as much due to its longer service life. “Farmers we speak with are fed up with replacing modern treated timber fencing which has a very short life,” stressed Chris. “After recently gaining the formal approval for grant contributions, we expect increased demand for our cost-effective solution.”

Reduced tillage solutions

Members of the Kuhn team reported a very busy event at which visitors expressed interest in reduced tillage solutions. (l-r) Edd Fanshawe, Rupert Greest, Justin Lucas, Duncan McLeish, and Julian Plank.

Managing wild edges Hugh Somerleyton, founder of WildEast (left) is pictured with Tim Hopkin, founder of the Land App. The Land App is an independent business which is funded by landowners, which “brings technology and nature together so everyone – farmers, farm advisors, land agents, ecologists and surveyors – can protect the legacy of our landscape and secure its future”. It’s a live, evolving platform, in which registered farmer users can map their existing farm, access new sources of funding, demonstrate environmental stewardship and support local nature recovery. The app is also used by estate/land owners and land agents. It provides free access to much of the Land App’s core mapping power, and additional paidfor subscription options open up the data and functionality further. The Land App is currently working with WildEast, with who it has built an algorithm which automatically identifies special opportunities for the creation of ‘WildEdges’ on farmland; with just an SBI number, you can generate a free WildEdges management plan for your holding. At Groundswell ’22, Tim defined a WildEdge as being a linear habitat comprising of hedgerow, scrub, tussocky grass and wildflowers. This creates habitat, produces a diversity of food supplies, bolsters flood holding capacity, significantly increases carbon capture and acts as a corridor for wildlife by increasing connectivity. By creating new WildEdges, as well as mapping current ones, both financial and environmental gains can be realised and managed.

Disease prediction allows more effective decision making Cereal disease prediction services are advancing rapidly at Microgenetics, which launched its SwiftDetect test for septoria last March. “We now have a test for the wheat diseases yellow rust, brown rust and mildew,” said Chris Steele, crop diagnostics product manager at SwiftDetect (pictured talking to Farmers Guide senior sales executuve Jo Blower, with research scientist Charles Grant on the right). “We also have a test for ramularia in barley. It has gone well – we have doubled last year’s sales.” SwiftDetect can reveal the level of disease, even in the latent period, with results in one business day. The patented method gives it such sensitivity and speed, that it’s able to test down to just a few pathogen cells of disease in your crop. Your results will provide you with actionable insight, so you can make more informed crop management decisions. Chris also confirmed that a test for light leaf spot in oilseed rape is also well and truly in the pipeline, so watch this space.

UK demand for millet as an alternative crop Soya UK director David McNaughton chatted to Farmers Guide's Jo Blower and editor Rachel Hicks at Groundswell, discussing the recent drop in demand for spring cropping options as a result of the high commodity prices for wheat and OSR currently, as well as the potential for UK-grown millet contracts due to the difficult situation in Ukraine. David explained that the UK demand for millet is around 10,000t, with only around 2,000t being currently domestically grown – and the remaining 8,000t imported from Ukraine. Soya UK is actively encouraging UK growers to seriously consider millet as an alternative cropping option.

Farm machinery business welcomes new brand to dealership Rea Valley Tractors (RVT), the West Midlands and mid-Wales farm machinery business, will become a New Holland dealer from 1st November 2022, while continuing to supply products from JCB, Kuhn and a number of other leading manufacturers. The appointment as a New Holland dealer for agricultural tractors and harvest machinery throughout Shropshire, part of Staffordshire, Cheshire, part of Lancashire, mid and North Wales, marks a significant change for RVT, which currently operates four branches and employs 130 staff. Rea Valley Tractors managing director, Steve Petford, said: “In discussions concerning the longterm development of the company, the options presented by our current tractor supplier effectively involved either down-sizing or selling the business, scenarios that were emphatically opposed by RVT’s chairman and main shareholder Simon Clarke, not least because of the impact on jobs. “Instead, we have taken an alternative route, taking charge of our own destiny by successfully negotiating to take on the New Holland territory for tractors and harvest machinery across an area that is larger than the one we have today, and also an extended JCB territory that will include Cheshire from 1st January 2023.” RVT will continue to support customers with repairs, routine servicing and parts for the John Deere products they have been selling, and are convinced that the potent combination of New Holland, JCB and Kuhn, together with its Bailey, Grimme, Joskin, Ag Leader and other important franchises, will be a long-term success. RVT has depots at Shrewsbury and Newport in Shropshire, Welshpool in Powys, and Sudbury in Derbyshire, with new branch locations to be announced in due course. The company has applied for planning permission to substantially enhance the Shrewsbury depot with new buildings that will double the amount of workshop space and improve working conditions, provide a technical training facility and covered storage for used machinery. The development will also enhance presentation of the Isuzu commercial vehicles supplied exclusively from the Shrewsbury branch. There are also plans to significantly expand the workshop facility at the Sudbury depot, where the focus will be on JCB and Kuhn sales and support, to increase

servicing and repairs capacity and improve working conditions. RVT chairman, Simon Clarke commented: “This is a new dawn for Rea Valley Tractors. After 38 years, we are really excited by the opportunity not only for our business, but customers alike by supplying and servicing machinery from world-class British manufacturers.



Combined with our skilled workforce, knowledge of the area and drive to move our business forward, the future is tremendously exciting. “The decision to change RVT’s main franchise has not been taken lightly;

but we were determined to protect the jobs of our dedicated staff by securing a profitable long-term future for the business. We look forward to sharing our plans with you in the coming months.” FG

One machine for stubble cultivation and seedbed preparation

(working width 4–7.5m) is one of the best sellers. The great advantage of these disc cultivators, according to Bednar, is their high versatility. The Swifterdisc cultivators can be equipped with two types of discs – the classic standard notched version or specially profiled Agressive discs, which provide “excellent cutting, mixing and incorporation of crop residue”. Two diameters of 520x5mm or 560x5mm are available. The Crushbar front levelling bar is very popular equipment on these machines. It’s hydraulically adjustable from the tractor cab, which is ideal for increasing the year-round use of the disc cultivator in seedbed soil preparation, as well as being ideal for operating on ploughed land, Bednar reckons.

If you are a farmer who grows catch crops or large quantities of oilseed rape or corn, the front Trash Cutter is also a good option. The Trash Cutter roller is an “ideal choice” for cutting crop residue and hard stalks. This speeds up the crop residue and decomposes better in soil, preventing future diseases and fungicide challenges, the manufacturer adds. The Swifterdisc can be equipped with the Bednar Alfa Drill seeding unit while in production, for seeding catch crop and small-seed plants during stubble cultivation, all in one pass. The time and fuel savings are “considerable”. A large number of Swifterdisc machines are available in the UK for demos – contact your authorised Bednar dealer for further information or to book. FG

Currently with over a 10% market share, the Bednar Swifterdisc product range is a highly universal disc cultivator within a compact frame, the manufacturer says. They are suitable for high output quality stubble cultivation, as well as for seedbed preparation. Soil can be accurately processed as shallow as 25mm with these cultivators. Bednar Swifterdisc cultivators are available in working widths

from 3–18.4m. In the UK market, the Swifterdisc XO_F model series


stubble cultivation

seedbed preparation

The SWIFTERDISC model product line includes highly universal disc cultivators with a short frame. Soil can be processed to a depth of up to 14 cm. The main advantages include: toothed discs or aggressive discs (520/560 mm), maitenancefree disc bearings, rubber segment disc protection, TWIN-DISC system and much more.

Productivity, accuracy and efficiency benefits from new products and updates

Kverneland guarantees 100% of the maize yield, with 25% less fertiliser.

Kverneland announced and demonstrated many new products at an exclusive press event in Italy during late June. David Williams was there. As well as displaying new products from Kverneland and Vicon, the event included an opportunity to see ROC belt mergers at work, and to visit the ROC factory. ROC is the global leader in belt mergers, and the company was acquired earlier this year by Kverneland in a joint venture with the Ubaldi brothers who founded the brand, and who retain a 20% holding in the business.

Grass and forage A new 8.75m QuattroLink triple mower-conditioner was announced. The Vicon Extra 787T is based on the 700-series platform and comes with proven features including the QuattroLink suspension, SemiSwing steel tine conditioning, and dual adjustment of the conditioner plate. Consisting of two 3.2m mowing units, the Extra 787T comes with simple, mechanical controls as standard, or the optional Dual Lift Control joystick for electro-hydraulic

folding and unfolding. A new version of the mowerconditioner with swath belts is available. The BX is designed to work with high volume crops including heavy, first-cut silage. Open-centre hydraulics and a pre-selection control box are standard. The BX version provides great flexibility as the belt units can be removed in under 15 minutes, leaving them stored on specially designed transport rollers. As the QuattroLink name suggests, four mounting arms form the suspension system which allows exceptional ground-following capability. Vertical movement up to 400mm upwards and 300mm downwards is available, as well as adaption to transverse angles up to 30 degrees. Break-back protection operates across the full working width and if an obstacle is encountered – then the mower moves back and then immediately returns to its working position.

The Fanex 1564C.

High-capacity tedder A new high-capacity tedder was demonstrated. The Vicon Fanex 1564C has a 15.6m working width made up of 14 rotors. Vicon has retained its small diameter rotor concept – providing generous overlap between each unit for even crop distribution across the working width. Accurate adaptation to ground contours is provided by the new TerraFlow solution. The frame is highly flexible, and there is also a large amount of movement possible between the frame and the rotor units, ensuring excellent tedding performance across the full width with minimal soil contamination. A single acting hydraulic spool is needed to raise and lower the tedder and a double-acting spool is needed for folding. The transport width is under 3m. A border spreading device means crop is kept within the field boundaries at the headlands. The hydraulic activated swath board keeps the crop within the confines of the tedder.

ROC mergers The Extra 787T mower and (inset) QuattroLink suspension.

Demand for belt mergers is growing. “They provide the best

opportunity to keep forage clean as it’s transported clear of the ground where there is no chance of contamination,” explained ROC sales and marketing director Denis Ubaldi, who runs the business with his brother, Raffaele. “Creating fewer swaths without losing any of the forage means that productivity of the forage harvester or baler is kept very high. It’s also possible to deliver the swath to either side, or if two beds are used there is the option to combine it in a single row in the centre.” Features of the ROC mergers include durable plastic guards around the pick-up which resist wear and operate more quietly than conventional metal surrounds. The pick-up tines rotate slower than those of a rotor so are gentler on the crop. Floating guide wheels under the pick-up provide accurate ground contour following. Drive to the belts is hydraulic using oil flow provided by a PTOdriven pump, but for folding and adjustment the tractor hydraulic spools are used. The gooseneck coupling allows extreme manoeuvrability, which is continued over…

Machinery A unique memory cylinder limits triangles created at the headlands by adjusting the depth wheel so that the rear furrows lift at the same point that the front furrow was taken out of work. Double ploughing is reduced; headlands are left flatter, and following seedbeds are improved. Changing the working width is also simple and quick – as there is just one bolt to move on each leg assembly.

Shallow ploughing

essential for efficient operation in smaller fields. The factory visit demonstrated the incredible attention to detail which has made the Roc brand such a success. Only the highest quality components are used, and rather than source standard fixings – many bolts and pins are designed especially. Only high-quality steels are used, and the welds and the overall finish, which was visible prior to painting, are exceptional.

Fixed chamber baler updates Film binding is a new option for Vicon Fixed Chamber 500 balers. The recently launched FixBale 500 which has an 18-roller bale chamber can now be specified with a film-on-film applicator option for users wanting to maximise silage quality. Plus-series RV variable-chamber, and FixBale 500 fixed chamber balers are now available with TIM (Tractor Implement Management) which allows control of compatible tractors by the balers – reducing operator fatigue and maximising working efficiency. The two-way communication between the tractor and baler means that the operator can focus on tasks such as feeding crop evenly into the baler, as the rest of the baling cycle is fully automated. This includes control of forward

Plus-series balers with TIM capability can save 4,000 operator actions while making 500 bales.

speed, then slowing the tractor as the bale reaches full size, then operating the binding cycle, and opening and closing the tailgate to discharge the bale. Company representatives explained at the event that with eight steps of the bale making process looked after by the TIM system, an operator making 500 bales per day would benefit from 4,000 fewer tractor control actions to manage. Manual control is available at any time – for example, to ensure bales aren’t released on steep slopes.

Kverneland is offering an ultrashallow plough – capable of achieving full inversion and effective trash burial even at very shallow working depths. “We offered a shallow plough approximately 20 years ago,” explained Kverneland UK managing director Joe Bell. “The plough worked well, but the plough didn’t prove popular as the shallow tillage concept was relatively unknown at that time, and many users simply operated it at the same depth as their conventional ploughs. However, now that the principles of shallow tillage are more widely understood, we believe it will prove very popular.”

Tillage updates Plough technology evolves A new generation of Stepwise ploughs offers higher ploughing performance and safer road transport. Following the success of the Kverneland New Generation ploughs – 2300 S Variomat and 3300 S Variomat, Stepwide versions will soon be available – the 2300 S and 3300 S. For safer transport, the plough mount pivots to match the turning angle when cornering, as a trailer would. Aero-profile legs optimise the soil flow with 80cm of under beam clearance for outstanding performance when trash residues are high. Smart leaf springs provide autoreset protection, and adjustment to suit the conditions is achieved by adding or removing one leaf – with just two bolts to unscrew by hand. Bodies release independently and return to the set working position automatically. Skimmer adjustment requires only one bolt to be loosened to optimise trash burial, and central adjustment allows the left and right skimmer depths to be adjusted simultaneously.

Extremely hard, dry conditions created a challenge, but the new shallow plough performed well working at only 8cm deep.

The Ecomat On-land plough provides familiar benefits of ploughing including reduced use of chemicals to solve weed and pest issues, while requiring less power and fuel than conventional ploughs. Working on-land, it avoids the compaction risks of tractor wheels operating in the furrow. The Ecomat bodies achieve full inversion while working at a recommended depth between 6–18cm. The TTS safe transport system is included – allowing the plough to angle into corners when turning, in a similar manner to a trailer. Kverneland illustrated the reduced power and fuel consumption by explaining that for every extra 1cm of plough working depth, 150t more soil per hectare is moved. The new ploughs are available with 8 and 10 furrows

and with working width adjustment between 30–50cm giving overall working widths of 2.4–5.0m.

Trailed Enduro T New folding trailed models have been added to the Enduro and Enduro T cultivator line-up, in 4.0, 4.5 and 5.0m working widths. Designed to suit medium-sized farms, the new models have a tine distance of 280mm, row distance of 750mm, and 870mm under beam clearance for trash. Maximum working depth is up to 35cm. The choice of packer rollers has been extended to include the new Actipress Single, Actipress Twin, and Double Cage Rollers. A new following harrow leaves the surface even with a fine tilth. Two types of tine are available with bolted or knock-on shares.

New f-drill front hoppers New f-drill front hoppers have been designed providing additional flexibility for all farming systems. Suitable for use with many types of implements, the metering system will handle a wide range of seed sizes and fertilisers. Kverneland suggests that the new hoppers are extremely versatile – supplying fertiliser to the Optima F or in combination with the Kultistrip for strip tillage, for example. When working with power-harrow drill combinations such as the e-drill, the f-drill can be used as an additional seed hopper for sowing companion or spring crops. In summer and autumn, it can be combined with a power-harrow and a coulter bar seeding system providing a compact combination with working widths from 3–6m. Advantages of using the front hopper include even weight distribution across the tractor and implement, and an unrestricted operator view to the drilling system at the rear. An optional wheel packer beneath the hopper relieves the load on the front axle while maintaining good steering ability. The hopper has a self-steering system, and is pull-attached to reduce the power requirement and fuel use. Hoppers come in two sizes – 1,600 and 2,200 litres. Standard versions have a single metering unit, but higher application rates can be achieved with the Duo version which has two Eldos metering units – with a combined flow capacity of 800kg/ha. Isobus plug-and-play capability allows set-up and control through the tractor terminal. continued over…

Yields maintained with 25% less fertiliser For maize sowing by the Optima TFprofi SX precision drill, the new Pudama spot fertiliser application system allows 100% of yield to be maintained while reducing the fertiliser application rate by a quarter. The system works by applying a spot of starter fertiliser beside every maize seed as it is placed in the row. The system was displayed in public for the first time, and Kverneland said that by applying fertiliser in spots rather than in a

continuous band, costs of expensive fertiliser are reduced, and significant environmental benefits are achieved, while weeds between the maize plants don’t benefit from the surplus nutrients. The fertiliser is delivered through pressurised pipes at rates of up to 25 shots per second. “For farmers growing 800ha of maize, the fertiliser cost savings will pay for the Pudama investment in only 1.8 years,” explained product specialist Mathis Mattern.

Spreader use extended to front and rear An updated design and new features

Using a front and rear set of Geospread spreaders means each unit can be set up for optimal spread performance with one type of fertiliser instead of compromising while applying blends.

for the Geospread spreader range were announced, including the ability to operate two machines as a front and rear combination. Total capacity is increased to 6,000 or 7,000 litres, and accuracy can also be increased by applying two sets of applications in one pass. “Instead of spreading blends of fertilisers where each type has different physical properties and spread characteristics, applying the two fertiliser types through separate spreaders which are each set up for the product will result in a perfect spreading pattern and nutrient distribution,” explained product application specialist Pavel Dvorak. From early January next year, a new user interface will be available for the Intelligent Disc Control spreader, increasing spread precision especially when working against borders. The system will separately adjust the speed of each disc, so that the outer disc operates at the optimum speed to work up to the boundary, while the inner disc continues to provide maximum spread width.

Sprayer upgrade The iXtrack T4, part of the iXtrack T-series comes with new features

including a 36/24m spray boom, SpotSpray, 25cm nozzle spacing and next-generation Boom Guide ProActive spray height control. The new 25cm nozzle spacing reduces drift as it is possible to spray closer to the target at 30cm spray height while maintaining accurate distribution of the spray liquid at the correct rate and optimal droplet size. Based on pre-defined prescription maps, the sprayer shuts on and off in combination with the SpotSpray application. Only designated spots are sprayed, which is of particular benefit when targeting weed spots, thistles, wet areas, non-germinated areas, and where there are soil problems. SpotSpray reduces costs by only applying chemical where it is needed, and healthy crops don’t receive unnecessary treatments. Based on areas determined from the VRA map, it is easy to work out exactly how much liquid is needed in the sprayer. Working capacity is increased as more hectares or fields can be treated with one tank of spray fluid. The standard iXspray software allows a 10-hour free trial of SpotSpray before investing in the SpotSpray licence. FG

Rain gauge winner set to make crop savings

The British weather is notoriously capricious, so having realtime information on rainfall and temperature can help farmers to reduce inputs and improve efficiencies. One lucky producer in North Yorkshire recently won a state-of-the-art connected weather gauge – so how does he see it helping on his farm? Sitting north of the Cleveland Hills and south of the River Tees in North Yorkshire, the rain clouds are often spent before they reach Robert Shepherd’s lowland arable farm. Keeping track of rainfall using conventional methods such as collecting it in a cup can be tricky and prone to human error. However, as the winner of a Sencrop Raincrop weather station, Mr Shepherd will now be able to measure rainfall consistently and remotely, better

informing decisions concerning crops on his farm. “I like to experiment with arable crops and if I know the exact rainfall, I try to get away with using fewer if not all fungicides. I have grown crops successfully without fungicides but every year is different. The weather here is very variable,” says Mr Shepherd. It will also be interesting to use the Raincrop rain gauge – which gives real-time weather updates

from a field on his farm – to compare weather patterns year-on-year. “We had a very wet May last year leading to some take-all in our second wheats. In the past we’ve had nothing to enable us to look back at weather patterns. But they could help us mitigate against the severity of takeall, perhaps through variety choice.” Mr Shepherd farms 68ha at Burnt House Farm, Hutton Rudby. His rotation comprises first and second winter wheats, winter barley, oilseed rape (OSR) and some grassland. Soil type is heavy clay. First wheat yields are typically 10t/ha and oilseed rape, 5t/ha. Land is min-tilled with a Sumo trio, followed by establishing the crop with a Vaderstad drill. But if ploughing is necessary, he will go down that route. He is keen to make the most of varietal resistance and reduce inputs, doing on-farm tramline trials to compare treatments and varieties. Mr Shepherd grows wheat varieties KWS Dawsum, Skyscraper, SY Insitor, KWS Parkin, Costello and Saki. His winter barley varieties include Bolton, Cassia and Barakooda, and OSR varieties Aurelia, Acacia and Aviron. The latter is one of the first OSR hybrids to feature the N-Flex gene, said to allow the crop to use available nitrogen in the soil more efficiently. Overall, he is looking to reduce nitrogen use and achieve a more balanced soil ecosystem and wants to try putting bugs in the soil to fix nitrogen. “We are not doing it any favours by plastering on artificial nitrogen.” As well as on his own farm, Mr Shepherd also sees a role for the rain gauge on larger arable farming enterprises, where weather at the home farm, for example, may be

very different to that in fields five or 10 miles away. “It may be that they decide to deploy a team of operatives to a distant site based on the weather at home which could waste time and money. If they could check the Sencrop mobile app [which allows collection and analysis of data from their station and others around it] first and discover that the weather was unfavourable, it would save time and money.” As well as rainfall, the device can also measure temperature, which will help when making decisions over herbicide timings. “If there has been a frost or the temperature is low, you wouldn’t go with a big tank mix the next morning or you could damage the crop. Similarly, if the temperature is higher than 20ºC you wouldn’t really want to spray.” It is early days for the Sencrop rain gauge on Mr Shepherd’s farm, but he is looking forward to finding out how it can help him develop his arable enterprise. “At the moment we use a cup to measure rain and tip it out but this should be a lot more thorough.” Sencrop also recently launched new features which Mr Shepherd will be able to explore. It has joined forces with the Information System for Integrated Plant production (ISIP) to provide bespoke disease forecasting for farmers based on pooled and individual data. Taking into account local temperature, humidity and precipitation, the system will predict risk levels for diseases affecting winter wheat, barley, rye, triticale and spring barley between 15th February and 30th June. This will enable farmers to react to times of high disease pressure and protect crop quality and yield. For more information visit FG

Tyre manufacturer launches first dedicated all-terrain option Apollo Tyres has announced it will be launching its first dedicated all-terrain tyre; the Vredestein Pinza. The more aggressive ‘LT’ tyre pattern is suited for working vehicles that are primarily used on more demanding off-road terrain. The ‘P’ variant features a more road-biased design, making it ideal for fitment to passenger vehicles. Both versions are highly capable off-road, enabling users to feel safe and secure across on all surfaces, year-round. FG


Suitable for

Warehouses, Barns, Silos, Containers, Potato Stores, Grain Stores

T: 0800 448 0457



The result of a five-year global research and development programme, the Pinza has been designed to be the most capable off-road Vredestein tyre ever, while at the same time offering superior standards of on-road grip, traction, rolling resistance and refinement. The result is the best balance of on- and off-road capabilities of any all-terrain tyre on the market, Apollo reckons. Particularly suited to 4x4s, pickups, and sports utility vehicles (SUVs) that venture off-road, the Pinza is available to customers from August, in 24 dimensions and with more size options to follow later. The tread on the Pinza features a distinctive four-groove herringbone pattern and full-depth interlocking sipes that offer “excellent” grip on all surfaces – including mud, sand, ice and snow – while minimising onroad noise. A robust three-pitched shoulder features aggressive ‘biting’ edges to further aid loose-surface grip, and twisted ‘stone ejectors’ have been incorporated into the tread to help clear debris. The new Pinza features a threeply triplex casing for durability, while a unique sidewall design extends the aggressive tread pattern to provide enhanced protection from rocks and ruts. Alongside its off-road capabilities, the Pinza has been engineered to deliver high levels of on-road grip and refinement, Apollo says. Multipitch technology and broad tread blocks help to minimise noise and maximise steering precision, and the use of a fifth-generation polymer compound and deep sipes ensure outstanding grip in all conditions. Underlining its all-weather credentials and further differentiating it from many other products in the all-terrain segment, the Pinza has secured ‘3 Peak Mountain Snow Flake’ certification, signifying that it delivers superior standards of grip and traction on snow and icy surfaces. The tyre was launched in the USA in 2021 and has quickly established itself as one of the most highly rated products in the competitive allterrain segment. It is one of only four all-terrain tyres to be recommended by the independent testing agency, Consumer Reports. The Pinza will be offered in two types of construction: ‘P’ and ‘LT’.

Grassland line-up features new models and additional features Pottinger used a late June European press launch to announce new products for every link in the harvesting chain: from mowing, tedding and raking to loading. David Williams reports. High-tech mower combination The new Novacat V 10000 mower combination uses intelligent technology to achieve high output combined with best possible ground tracking and optimum reliability. It is available with a headstock for 3.0 or 3.5m front mowers, making working widths of up to 9.62 and 10.02m possible. Hydraulic cylinders within the booms shift the cutter bar up to 370mm on each side. This ensures optimum overlap for perfect mowing on slopes and when cornering. An optional upgrade allows the ground pressure to automatically adjust to suit the working width, reducing fuel consumption and wear, and ensuring best possible forage quality.

Control options Control is available from the tractor terminal using an Isobus cable, or from the standard Select Control terminal. Using Select Control, all the functions are

pre-selected and then performed using the tractor’s remote valves, and only one doubleacting hydraulic connection is required. Individual mower lifting is possible, and the hydraulics are also used to fold the optional side guard, adjust the working width, and operate the transport interlock. The control terminal keeps track of hours worked and recommends when servicing is due. Using the tractor’s Isobus system or an external Isobus terminal, all settings and controls are direct from the terminal screen, and a number of automatic programme sequences can be stored and activated. Section control activation through Task Controller Section Control-certified Isobus systems allows individual lifting and lowering of each mower at the headlands, based on the GPS location. An optional automatic inclination system is new, providing compensation for side slip on slopes to ensure no grass is missed – even if the

combination drifts sideways.

10-rotor tedder With a 10.7m working width and ten 1.42m diameter rotors, the HIT V 11100 combines excellent tedding quality with high output. Mounted on the tractor rear linkage, the compact design ensures maximum stability in the field and for transport. Like other Pottinger tedders it features a pivoting headstock. Two hydraulic centering cylinders ensure accurate tracking and prevent swaying. The cylinders also have a preload function that avoids any tendency for the machine to run ahead when travelling downhill. During lifting, the linkage design means that the rotors tilt back – avoiding ground contact and forage contamination. The new tedder features Pottinger’s Dynatech rotors with six swept tine arms that pick up the forage cleanly and deliver an even spread. Accurate ground following is ensured by the Multitast jockey wheel which mounts on the pivoting headstock and tracks the ground in front of the tines.

Centre-swath rake The TOP 882 C is an addition to Pottinger’s centre-swath rake line-up and has an adjustable working width of 7.70–8.80m. A longer boom allows very flexible swath width adjustment between 1.30–2.60m, making it capable of creating wider swaths for forage harvesters and narrower swath widths for smaller loader wagons and balers. Despite the impressive rotor diameter of 3.70m, the transport height without removing the tine arms remains below 4.00m.

Customer open day celebrates new building investment The new Tong factory on the outskirts of Spilsby, Lincs.

achieves product and service sales in excess of £20M, and machines are exported to more than 50 countries. “We are not just root crops,” explained sales director Charlie Rich. “We have a strong reputation in the vegetable handling and processing market too. Tong is regarded as a very good employer in the area which means that people tend to stay for longer, and the company benefits from their extensive experience.”

Vegetable and crop handling specialist, Tong Engineering, welcomed customers to two early July open days to celebrate the opening of its new, state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities. David Williams was there. Tong’s new 90,000ft2 factory is on an industrial estate on the outskirts of Spilsby, Lincs, just a short distance from the shop in the centre of the town where the business started in the 1930s, and which still displays the Tong trading name. The original product offering was modest, including simple but popular items such as sack

barrows and pig pens. During the 1950s, an old candle factory was purchased and manufacturing of potato graders commenced, reflecting the crop’s importance in the local area. Adjacent properties were added in the 1960s as demand for the products grew, and Ken Tong built the business to satisfy growing demand for a wider range of vegetable handling equipment. In 1972, Ken’s son Charles joined the business and by the 1980s the first Caretaker graders were introduced which remain market leaders today. Local competitor Peal Engineering was acquired in 2005, and a second factory premises at Wainfleet was rented allowing the product range to be expanded to include washers and polishers for potatoes, carrots and other root crops – sold under the Tong Peal trading name. Charles ran the business until 2015 when he became chairman, and his son Edward, who had gained experience working in several areas of the business and moved up through the ranks, took over as managing director. The company’s branding reverted to Tong. Demand for the products continued to grow and, in 2020, Tong purchased three hectares of land on a green-field site for the new factory. Building was completed by early summer 2022.

Not just root crops

In-house manufacture and design Almost every aspect of the machine design process is carried out inhouse, including electronic control panels which are also assembled on-site. More than 30 hoppers of various sizes are made annually. Metal grading screens have been manufactured by the company for more than 50 years, and more than 1,250 are made each year by hand. Tong has a very strong reputation for conveyor manufacturing too, and 5,000 roller barrels are made each year. Recent developments including changes to electronic control systems were highlighted. From manual two-way switches to electronic controls, then remote control and control through the

internet by app. As remote control has become more widespread, safety systems to prevent accidental machine activation have also been developed. Tong’s engineers highlighted that QR codes which must be scanned to prove that an operator is present to check a machine before it is restarted, are a potential solution.

Optical sorting Tong works with industry leaders in specialist fields to provide the very best sorting equipment. The open day featured the Tomra Optical Sorter, which uses an array of cameras and infra-red sensors to detect anomalies while automatically sorting the crop. For the demonstration a bin of onions was sorted – containing a large amount of soil and large numbers of stones and other debris. Anything that wasn’t an onion was automatically removed – even if it had a similar size and shape to the crop. “Automation is increasingly important when labour shortages are such an issue,” explained Tomra area sales manager Steven Skipper, “and we supply systems for integrating into the Tong grading lines.”

Top level back-up Tong wouldn’t have become such a success if it wasn’t for the excellent after-sales service available to its continued over…

Shropshire farmer Farmer Michael Bubb is pictured at the event. Michael trades as JM Bubb & Son, and Shropshire Petals, and farms at Newport, Shropshire. Potatoes are produced for contracts with McCain and McDonalds, and for the chip market. Combinable crops are grown as well as fresh flowers to make natural confetti. A Tong Caretaker cleans and sorts the potatoes straight from the field before they are put into store. “I like dealing with Tong as the company is British, the products are reliable and the Tong team is always interested in what we are doing and solving our problems,” Michael explained. “Like other businesses, we are affected by labour shortages so looking to the future; increased use of mechanisation must be part of the solution. “We already use a Tomra optical sorting system for potatoes and for our flower petal enterprise too. It stands alone but works in conjunction with Tong equipment.”

customers, and the factory includes new 9m high parts towers, each of which has 40 trays containing up to 500kg of parts. Total parts value at the site exceeds £2M. Additional engineers are currently being recruited to further improve the back-up available. The company is working towards the ISO 9001 quality standard for continuous improvement – which it hopes to have attained by mid-2023. “Demand for our products continues to grow, and although we offer a wide range of standard products, a lot of our business involves integrating our standard machines within bespoke systems to suit our customers’ needs,” concluded Charlie. FG

Dealer view “It’s rare dealing with a company where the fourth generation of the same family is in charge,” explained Burdens Specialist Vegetable Machinery sales and service manager Adrian Harrison, who is pictured (left) with Tong sales manager Nick Woodcock. “I’ve seen the new site evolve, and it’s very impressive.” Adrian said that the main products supplied by his team include Caretaker Graders, EasyFill box fillers and box tippers. “Many of our customers store produce in bulk, so yard-based Caretakers are favoured,” he continued. “But we also come to Tong when we need specialist solutions, including a recent project for a customer which involved a system to blow the outer leaves off cauliflowers before they are inspected and chopped.” Adrian has worked with Tong for more than 30 years and he said that although the factory is only 30 miles from the Burdens depot, the main reason for recommending products to his customers is that they are world class. “Even when we need bespoke solutions, we are always confident that what Tong recommends will be successful,” he added. “When we express a view on any of the products then our suggestions are taken on board – they always listen.”

Retain nitrogen and reduce emissions with slurry improver MicroZyme slurry improvers have been launched in the UK by slurry specialist Tramspread. The biological slurry additive reduces solids and ammonia emissions whilst improving nitrogen retention. Managing director, Terry Baker said: “MicroZyme products will reduce emissions and improve the value of slurry to the crop and soil. The unique bacteria in MicroZyme R (ruminant) and MicroZyme S (swine) break down fibre, starch, pectins, fats and protein residues to decrease solids and lower harmful emissions. “These products will help farmers to meet [Clean Air Strategy] targets and will also make applying slurry more efficient. Slurry treated with MicroZyme requires less agitation and will require less fuel to pump out. It will also make the slurry more homogenous which will improve application accuracy, especially with trailing shoe or dribble bar applicators,” adds Mr Baker. Degradative enzymes in MicroZyme begin to act on the slurry immediately to decrease solids and reduce crust formation. This will also reduce the buildup of sediment that can lead to some storage, such as lagoons, reducing in capacity and becoming unsustainable. FG

The Grimme Prios 440 is a 4-row cup planter with standard 75cm row widths, but an overall transport width under 3m.

New planters and harvesters feature at European launch Grimme announced new and updated products in its potato and beet planting and harvesting ranges during a product launch event and demonstration, in Germany in late June. David Williams reports. Four-row cup planter

Innovative ridge shaper

The Prios 440 is a four-row trailed cup planter which is designed to work in conjunction with a pre-cultivator, and it has a road transport width of below 3m. An extended goose-neck drawbar allows it to be trailed behind an active cultivation tool such as a power-harrow or rotary cultivator. Because it relies on the goose-neck coupling rather than direct linkage mounting, it is easy to swap the tillage implement without removing the planter each time.

Plastic ridging bodies can be combined with closed ridge crown plates for a smooth finish or cage rollers for a crumbly texture, but a new option is to combine the two elements. Grimme says that the unique ‘hybrid-ridge shaping unit’ creates a ridge with stable, smooth flanks and an open pored crown. The hybrid unit can be converted and adjusted in the field without tools, allowing it to be adapted to changing soil conditions as well as customer requirements. To increase the water infiltration rate and help prevent soil erosion, the ridge shaping unit can be additionally equipped with the ‘TerraProtect’ profiling system.

Depth control of the fertiliser outlet discs The furrow openers, covering discs and ridge shaping unit are all independently adjusted, and overall working depth is set by four feeler wheels at the front of the machine and two ultrasonic sensors in front of the ridge shaping unit which detect the working depth and ensure optimum control for even emergence of the tubers.

Section control Independent control of each planting section includes the fertiliser box, the barrel system and the planting elements which can each be switched on or off independently. This allows the user to avoid applying nutrients where they aren’t needed, such as in tramline areas or on unplanted land on diagonal headlands, which is better for the environment and saves money.

Convenient road transport

benefits of a mechanical and hydraulic drive transmission. With ‘Speedtronic Web’, the conveying speed of all the main webs is continuously and automatically adjusted in relation to the load and driving speed. Grimme offers a unique range of separator options, including MultiSep, double MultiSep, RollerSep roller separators or the HaulmSep fine haulm elevator, and all are available with automatic functions. For maximum separation performance the double separator and TurboSep blower can be combined. For increased crop protection, the separators can now be set at a steeper downward angle so that the conveying capacity increases compared to the separating capacity.

Revised machine operation and monitoring

customers have the option of using either a tractor Isobus-compatible terminal when available, or the CCI 800 or CCI 1200 Isobus operator terminals which allow use on any tractor. The optional SmartView video system with a 12in touchscreen monitor includes zoom, slow motion, and live image displays of all the machine functions. Remote monitoring of machine performance and task data is available through the MyGrimme internet platform with links to farm management software through Agrirouter.

Select 200 elevator harvester Grimme also announced a new tworow elevator harvester with a unique steering system and a transport width under 3m.

Infinitely variable main web drives Optional ‘VarioDrive’ allows infinitely variable speed control and reversing of the main webs – combining

Isobus is standard, allowing direct control from the main terminal of suitably equipped tractors, or CCI 800 or CCI 1200 displays, to be used. A wide range of settings can be made and adjusted through the terminals, including the automatic SpeedtronicWeb and Speedtronic-Elevator functions. Connection to the MyGrimme operator interface is standard, allowing machine and task data to be exchanged with farm management software through Agrirouter.

New steering The ActiveSteer automatic axle steering uses electronic control and hydraulic activation, so it doesn’t require an additional coupling point on the tractor. Headland turning is improved with a tighter steering angle and optimal guidance into the row. When cornering, the target angle of the wheel position is calculated, and the axle is actively controlled. The system is set up from the Isobus terminal, and manual override is available. continued over…

The Prios 440 retains the standard 75cm row format, but optional telescopic axles make it easy to reduce the width from 3.3m for working to below 3.0m for transport. In addition, protruding working elements are retracted within the frame. Being able to easily reduce the size for transport adds convenience for all users where travel by road is required, and especially for contractors working at multiple locations.

Simple operation The new Prios comes with Isobus connectivity as standard, and

Wide elevator An optional 1,200mm wide elevator can be specified allowing reduced operating speeds while maintaining the same throughput. This makes crop handling gentler and, for onions and carrots, the throughput can be increased.

Comfort packs New comfort packages include height-adjustable steps for the picking table, ensuring a comfortable working position for operators. Also available are a waterproof storage box, padding on the picking table, drink holders and a handwash tank. New lighting provides an excellent view of the crop for sorting, even at night. An optional weather roof is available with or without side panels. Nets on the sides allow ventilation while protecting the crew from dust.

The new Varitron 470.

Third-gen self-propelled The Varitron 470 features significant upgrades for both wheeled and tracked versions. The four-row self-propelled harvesters feature a new appearance and a 460hp Stage 5 power unit. The haulm topper has more power for maximum chopping performance. Attaching and removing the topper is easier due to a revised suspension design.

Convenient road transport

Intake options

The sub-three metre road transport width is achieved using a telescopic rear axle, which is pushed out to the wider position for field work.

Different intakes can be fitted for optimum performance in potatoes, onions and carrots and, for a twophase harvesting system, it can

pick up potatoes and onions from windrows. Speedtronic Web automatically adjusts the web speeds according to travel speed and crop loading. All the main webs, the fine haulm elevator and the ring elevator can be individually and conveniently reversed from the cab to prevent and clear blockages. The ability to alter the direction of the extracting unit rollers is new. This allows rotation in either direction in both the extraction and transfer modes, which means the latest Varitron can be set up to perform even better in a wide range of crops with exactly the right degree of separation.

Bunker extension A 64cm bunker extension makes it possible to load even higher trailers, as well as boxes in the second row, in a safe and simple manner. The bunker extension is of particular benefit for opening up or starting long fields. Working in 75cm rows, the transport trailer can travel in the spray tramlines and be loaded across four rows without damage or losses.

Improved controls The new Varitron 470 has a 12.1in CCI 1200 touch terminal as standard. With a new, more intuitive user interface the operator has an excellent overview of the machine

Tough times call for a new kind of reliability.

settings and functions. The ‘SmartView’ video system with a 12in monitor can operate with a network of up to 13 cameras, making it even easier to continuously monitor and optimise all aspects of the operation. To document yield information, the Varitron 470 can be equipped with a crop weighing system. Using data from the weigher, yield maps can be created and used to highlight crop performance differences between various areas, and the information can be used to help create maps for variable rate applications of products including seed, pesticides and fertilisers.

2022 Rexor updates New Rexor 6200 and Rexor 6300 beet harvesters have been introduced, with 30m3 and 45m3 bunker capacities. Beet lifting and cleaning performance is improved on both Oppel wheel and walking share versions, and the pre-cleaner roller table features seven rollers as standard.

Oppel wheel upgrade The latest Oppel wheel lifting unit has four feelers – double the number of previous versions. This improves guidance along the rows and helps

maintain optimum working height. Performance when working around corners is improved and driver fatigue is reduced. The new height guidance means there is no need for a feeler wheel shaft between the chopper and the Oppel wheels. An improved view of the digging unit is provided, and total weight is reduced. The new Rexor has the CCI 1200 Isobus operator terminal and the SmartView video system which displays up to eight images simultaneously for improved monitoring. The Grimme Digital Interface provides an improved overview of the machine settings and performance. Remote monitoring is available through telematics and the MyGrimme customer portal. Live information is available to view from anywhere with an internet connection, and includes current task progress which can be used to help plan work commitments and logistics. A ‘MyJobs’ module automatically documents each job and includes information such as fuel use for accurate costing. Customer data can also be saved and shared for analysis and record keeping with most


farm management software systems.

Extended warranty Grimme suggests that extra security provided by an optional four-year warranty will help contractors and

farmers invest in the new harvesters in an increasingly uncertain sugar market. Attractive and flexible finance and service packages are also available to help fix ownership and working costs. FG

Machinery constantly adjusts the engine speed and gears to achieve best possible working efficiency and economy. The optional creeper range allows travel speed adjustment from only 20 metres per hour to 5kph.

Added features

New transmission will tempt additional users A new, stepless powershift transmission with electronic control and automatic shifting is expected to boost sales volumes for Deutz-Fahr’s popular 6-series tractors. David Williams tried them out. The new RVshift is an option for latest 6C-series models which replace the previous 6120–6140 machines. The 6C-series includes three models with three transmission options from 120hp (rated) to 143hp (max). Transmissions available include standard powershift, the new RVshift, and TTV continuously variable transmission. Power is from Deutz 4-cyl, 3.6-litre engines or Farmotion 3.9 litre engines, all meeting Stage 5 emissions standards. Maximum power is at 2,000rpm and maximum torque is produced at 1,600rpm. Approximately 7hp extra is available for all models in boost mode – available for PTO applications, or when travelling at more than 15kph.

Transmissions for all applications The base Powershift features five gears with either two (high/low), or three (high/medium/low) powershift steps, and there is also a creeper option. Manual shifting is standard for the 6115C, but Automatic Powershift (APS) is included standard for 6125C and 6135C models, and an option for the 6115C. Top speed is 40kph.

The new RVshift has 20 forward, and 16 reverse powershift steps, and creeper is an option doubling the number of ratios available. Cruise control, Stop&Go with advanced functionality and Automatic Powershift (APS) are all standard. A SuperEco version offers 40kph and Eco is 50kph. The TTV stepless transmission offers a choice of driving strategies and the ability to set two cruise control speeds in each direction. 40kph and 50kph versions are available.

Welcome addition Deutz-Fahr product specialist David Jefferson said the RVshift transmission option will be welcomed by dealers and customers. “A transmission offering this sort of automatic operation is in high demand, and sales account for 70% of the market. We had a range of superb tractors in this size class, but nothing to fill the gap between functional powershift and the premium TTV versions until now,” he stressed. The RVshift transmission is a high efficiency full powershift, and all 20 forward and 16 reverse speeds are

selectable without using the clutch pedal, and without interrupting torque delivery, making the system ideal for draft and transport applications. Control is through the RVshift controller three-way joystick, located on the multifunction armrest mounted on the driver seat. Nudging it forward causes the transmission to upshift one gear ratio at a time; holding it in the forward position causes shifting to continue through the gears; and pushing it forward and pressing the ‘consent’ button means the gears jump several steps at a time – depending on the speed and working load. Pulling the stick back results in a downshift and moving it to the left activates cruise control and memorises the current speed.

Simple but versatile There are two driving modes – field and transport, and a button press switches between the two. Default modes are pre-programmed at the factory but the gear ratios within each range can also be set by the operator – for example working within a restricted range of gears 5–8 for cultivations in field mode, then having gears 9–20 available for higher speeds in the transport mode. Additional settings which add convenience include preprogramming the start-off gear in each range. All adjustments are made through the dashboard-mounted Infocentre Pro display. Gears can be selected manually using the joystick, but with APS (automatic powershift function) the engine and transmission management system

Additional features available through the RVshift transmission include a Stop&Hold function which keeps the tractor and any load stationary – even on steep slopes, until the accelerator pedal is pressed again. Many 6C tractors will be specified with loaders, and standard PowerShuttle with five different drive take-up settings is standard on all models and for all types of transmission. A braking assistance system is also a new option. The hydraulic engine brake is activated by a foot button on the cab floor and works by increasing drag on the engine to slow it down. The viscous fan operates at maximum speed, a lower gear ratio is selected, and a dedicated hydraulic spool valve is pressurised. continued over…

There are three new 6C models from 120–143hp.

The four-pillar cab is available in base TopVision, and higher-spec TopVision Pro versions.

Hydraulic lift capacity is 5,410kg on the 6115C Powershift, while all other models lift 5,000kg although an upgrade to 7,000kg is an option. Front lift capacity is 3,000kg. Hydraulic oil flow rates of 55 litres/min are standard on the 6115C with an upgrade to 90 litres/min available as an option. All other models have 90 litres of flow as standard, but an impressive 120 litres/min delivered by a load-sensing pump is an option.

New 6C-series RVshift and TTV tractors can come auto-steer ready. An optional 8in iMonitor 3 display allows advanced functions including individual control for up to 200 sections, AutoTurn for added convenience and working efficiency during headland turns, and full Isobus compatibility.

…from previous page

All 6C tractors have genuine four-wheel braking with brakes on the front axle, and a brake booster system which reduces the pressure required on the brake pedal is standard on RVshift and TTV variants.

How does RVshift work? The RVshift transmission is designed and manufactured by SDF and, in simple terms, it is the TTV models’ CVT transmission, but with virtual operating ratios to mimic the behaviour of a powershift transmission. There are a few physical differences including the hydrostatic oil operating pressure, but it is the same transmission unit, and the RVshift versions of the tractors cost approximately £6,000 less than the

equivalent TTV models.

Operator environment Three versions of the cab share the same four-pillar design. The more basic TopVision cab is only supplied for the base 6115C Powershift. The other two Powershift models get the upgraded TopVision+ variant. All RVshift and TTV models have the TopVision Pro version – which adds extra comfort and additional technical features including the InfoCentre dashboard display. Rubber Hydro Silent block suspension is standard across the range, but mechanical cab suspension is an optional upgrade for all models with the TopVision+ and TopVision Pro cabs.

competitors can offer in this power segment,” stressed Deutz-Fahr UK country manager, Graham Barnwell. “The new RVshift models won’t replace anything we are doing in terms of other models in our line-up, so our dealers expect to gain a lot of additional sales.”

Test drive The press preview event featured two new RVshift models to drive – one with a front loader. The RVshift transmission is exceptionally easy to set-up and use. The main joystick action is intuitive, and it has a very progressive feel which makes it easy to achieve accurate control. A testdrive on public roads highlighted the exceptional smoothness of the adapted CVT transmission. Gear changes are progressive, the transmission is quiet, and under full acceleration in APS mode, the changes between the virtual gears were barely noticeable and the power was delivered smoothly. Nudging the joystick forward or back overrides the automatic gear selection and pushing it to the left engages cruise control and maintains the current speed. Ride comfort on an uneven back road was good, the cab was quiet

and there was little noise from the transmission. The four-pillar cab is spacious and well designed, and the interior layout is attractive but functional. The optional Advanced satellite armrest includes additional functions such as three freely assignable control buttons, a programmable thumbwheel, and an additional engine speed memory. The loader tractor had the optional high specification Electric cross lever control rather than the standard mechanical lever with Bowden cable loader operation. The stubby loader joystick allowed precise control, and cycle times were quick – without needing to select fast engine revs.

Limited numbers of the new tractors will be in stock with dealers this autumn, but deliveries to satisfy new orders are expected in early 2023.

Hydraulic lift capacity is 5,410kg on the 6115C Powershift, while all other models lift 5,000kg although an upgrade to 7,000kg is an option. Front lift capacity is 3,000kg. Hydraulic flow rates of 55 litres/min are standard on the 6115C with 90 litres available as an option, and 90 litres/min is standard on all other models, with 120 litres/min supplied by a load-sensing pump available as an option.

Summary For ultra-precise, stepless speed control for specialist applications the higherpriced TTV version remains the best option, but for most farms selecting a tractor for typical field and transport tasks, the new RVshift models will have lots of appeal. Mechanical drive optimises working efficiency, and the hydraulic drive element ensures smooth changes between the gears. It’s a relatively simple design based on a proven gearbox, and it is even easier to operate than the standard powershift models. FG

Machinery Valtra’s new five-model Q-series slots neatly between existing T-series and larger S-series models, with power outputs from 230–305hp, standard CVT transmission and a long wheelbase, plus an extremely comfortable cab.

Additional models satisfy demand for year-round tractors There is a growing market for the new generation of versatile 300hp tractors – capable of primary cultivations, but light and manoeuvrable enough for yard work and crop applications. Valtra’s new Q-series enters the market this autumn. David Williams reports. of scope for ballasting for demanding draft work, but also allows heavy loads to be transported legally.

The Q-series, nicknamed ‘The Beast’ by Valtra for its official press launch, is completely new and built at Valtra’s Suolahti factory in Finland. Five models from 230–305hp all share a 3,050mm wheelbase, and they fit in between the current popular T series which includes models from 155– 271hp with a 2,995mm wheelbase, and the largest S-series which starts at 270hp (300hp with boost) with a 3,105mm wheelbase. The new Q-series weighs in at only 9.2t unladen but has a maximum gross weight of 16.0t which provides plenty

Efficient, long-stroke engine Power is from a 7.4-litre AgcoPower engine, and drive is through a hydromechanical CVT transmission shared with other brands in the Agco family – in a move away from Valtra’s exclusive Direct CVT used in smaller models in Valtra’s line-up. On models with boost mode – the additional power is delivered only

when the engine and transmission management system detects that it is needed – and it is also available during stationary working applications. Torque from the efficient, longstroke engine remains almost constant between 1,000–1,500rpm. The electronic engine and transmission management system always selects the lowest possible engine revs for the working conditions and task, for maximum fuel efficiency. The transmission has two ranges – field work and transport. A mix of hydraulic and mechanical drive is used, although on the road, at higher transport speeds, power is transferred almost exclusively through the mechanical section for optimum efficiency. Maximum speed is 50kph – achieved at just 1,500rpm.

Comfortable work environment The cab is similar to the T-series which was recently updated and comes with an attractive and functional A-pillar screen which displays essential operating information. Ride comfort is assured by air suspension used for the front axle and cab, coupled with the long wheelbase. Valtra claims that as well as providing optimum ride quality, the air suspension also increases traction as it reacts more quickly to undulations than competitor hydraulic suspension systems. It is also less affected by climatic conditions, so ride quality remains excellent all year around. Hydraulic lift capacity is 10t and up to 200 litres of hydraulic oil flow is available.

of specifications, it is known that the machines will boast Smart farming systems capable of handling the most demanding machinery and sending and accepting complex field and task data. Like other Valtra tractors, the widestpossible range of options is available through the factory’s Unlimited Studio – including a massive choice of colours. First dealer deliveries will start in October and the flagship Q305 will be first to arrive.

Dealer view “We are very excited by the addition of Valtra’s Q-series to the line-up,” explained RW Crawford Ltd managing director Wes Crawford. “We represent Valtra in Essex, Kent, Sussex, Surrey, and Hampshire, and although the existing T- and S-series models will remain very popular with our customers, I think that there are many situations where the new Q-series will have great appeal. Being so well suited to so many tasks, these tractors will operate all year around which helps justify the investment even for smaller farms, and for the drivers these tractors offer what must be the best cab and most comfortable ride available. “We didn’t hesitate ordering new Q-series models for stock and as demonstrators and believe they will appeal to all sizes and types of farming enterprise across our operating area.” FG

Capable and extremely versatile The new Q-series is joining a very competitive market sector where the power, size and weight means that there are tasks for the tractors all year around, so they clock up large numbers of hours. Although Valtra hasn’t yet confirmed the full range

The Q-series shares its cab design with the popular T-series.

Hope remains despite challenging times The focus of this year’s Pig and Poultry Fair in Stoneleigh was, unsurprisingly, the unprecedented mixture of challenges facing both sectors. But despite this, the two-day event was very well attended and organisers say producers were keen to discuss pressing concerns and opportunities.


“The industry faces some significant challenges but there are opportunities too. I’ve been in the egg industry all my life and never seen this perfect storm of rising energy, fuel and feed costs and difficulties sourcing labour,” commented Mark Williams, chief executive at the British Egg Industry Council (BEIC), speaking at the Egg Outlook forum. Held at Stoneleigh Park, Warwickshire in May, the Fair featured 66 new products and 335 stands, with the theme for many exhibitors being supporting pig and poultry producers in improving efficiency, resilience and profitability. Jen Walters, AHDB head of knowledge exchange in pork, said: “It had a great vibe despite the incredibly difficult circumstances. It was really nice to engage with everybody.

Producers want hope for the future and to hear about opportunities.” A key focus was the soaring cost of production. ADAS livestock consultant Jon Walton noted that egg prices had increased by 3.1p/ dozen but total costs, excluding finance, had increased from 91.7 to 117.6p – 25.9p/dozen. Meanwhile AHDB figures for Q1 showed average losses for pig producers had hit £58/ head, while cost of production had reached an estimated 230p/kg on average in April and cumulative industry losses reached £500m since October 2020. June figures showed the COP had risen to £244p/kg DW, and while the price was continuing a steady rise at the time of writing, it was still well short of average costs. National Pig Association president Rob Mutimer (pictured), who runs 700 outdoor sows in North Norfolk,

said his COP had increased 52p/ kg in the quarter following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine alone. Major retailers were invited to the Fair to attend a Breaking Point Summit, but none attended and only two (Morrisons and Tesco) responded positively to the request. Both agreed to meet outside of the event and highlighted that the feed trackers they offer to packers, which should be passed down to producers, should deal with most feed cost rises. However, BFREPA chief executive Robert Gooch said this is not always the case and retailers must insist that packers and processors offer the tracker to farmers if they want it. Despite this there was cause for optimism. Egg volumes were significantly up in 2020/21 due to Covid – and, while this has gone backwards slightly, compared with three years ago, the volume was still up 4% and value 17%, Mr Williams said. The egg industry is also 92% self-sufficient, an increase of 3% on last year. Mr Mutimer noted that while the increase in the pig price since the Ukraine invasion is not nearly enough, it’s a good indication that people want to buy pork – which is also an attractive choice for shoppers looking for convenient, low-cost protein. He called for improvements to contracts, as well as action to attract skilled labour, providing training and career paths. In the medium term, a shrink in the economy could create a pool of labour, he added.

cattle and sheep farmers that are eligible for BPS, with more than 10 cattle, 20 sheep or 50 pigs Disease control and eradication: Diagnostic testing, vaccinations, vet advice and farm management – available from 2023 for pigs, cattle and sheep Health and welfare grants: Capital investment in equipment, technology and infrastructure to support health and welfare priorities (planned for late 2023) Payment by results: This will be trialled in 2023, and supports operational costs of health and welfare improvements.

Priorities highlighted for poultry meat are welfare-improving technology and implementing the Better Chicken Commitment; and for laying hens, improving feather cover management and keel bone health, as well as transitioning out of cages. Grants could help with foraging items and ramps to improve feather cover, or installing environmental and behavioural monitoring equipment in broiler sheds, for example. The initial focus for the pig sector is PRRS which costs the industry £50m a year. There are also plans to implement a biosecurity scoring system and target a reduction in sow confinement, as well as reducing stressors to keep tails intact. However, the scheme will be flexible to target the most relevant issues on farm. FG

Check ventilation specs to avoid heat stress mortality

Rare red and amber alerts being issued due to the extremely high temperatures in July continue a growing trend for very hot spells during British summertime – and with this in mind, it’s essential to ensure you have the right specification for your ventilation systems, writes draperGROUP. Heat stress occurs when birds struggle to achieve a balance between body heat production and body heat loss, which can occur at all ages and in all types of poultry. UK

legislation requires that ventilation is sufficient to prevent overheating. Sufficient air speed over the bird from a good air change rate provides the solution.

Every year since 2010 has seen a period of over 30ºC; and as the genetics of birds have improved over the past 20 years, the heat output per bird has increased. And bearing in mind the heatwave of early August 2003, which saw horrific heat stress mortality on poultry farms across the UK, especially broilers, it’s essential to ensure ventilation specifications are up to scratch to avoid similar situations in future. Air change rate should be based on removing the heat output of birds, which for finishing broilers should be at least 15W per bird. Fan capacity should be rated for 40Pa (not 30Pa) to ensure there is no shortfall in air change rate. Target at least 10.5m3/hr/bird air change, allowing inlet velocities of at least 6m/s in houses of 18.3m (60ft) or less, and at least 7m/s in wider houses, so that 1.5m/s is the minimum air speed over as much of the floor as possible; however, this can only be achieved with a correct inlet design that deflects air to the floor – otherwise it simply will not work. A similar approach to this should apply to breeders, turkeys and layers, but ventilation rates and air speeds are less critical with the lower stocking rates and a mature bird. For further information on draperGROUP’s innovative, bespoke broiler, breeder, rearing and layer systems – which seek to promote the highest bird welfare and outstanding performance – contact the company directly.

Figure 1: Vaccination with DUO using a dual applicator.

Single injection protects against PCV and M.hyo Ceva’s recently-launched DUO is comprised of Circovac and Hyogen, and offers immunity for 23 weeks after injection. Porcine circovirus type 2 (PCV2) and Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae (M.hyo) belong to the most important infectious agents in swine, affecting the health of commercial pigs and causing disease and production losses worldwide. PCV2 alone is a major cause of PCVD (porcine circovirus diseases), including various clinical syndromes and subclinical conditions; the latter

being even more economically important. M.hyo is the major cause of enzootic pneumonia in growing and finishing pigs. PCV2 and M.hyo, together with porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus (PRRSV), are considered to be the most important pathogens involved in the porcine respiratory disease complex (PRDC) (Tico, G. et al, 2013; Maes, D. et al, 2018).

DUO is a solution from Ceva which offers protection against PCV and M.hyo in a single injection (Figure 1). The combination has a duration of immunity of 23 weeks following injection, therefore providing protection until 26 weeks of life in piglets vaccinated at three weeks of age. DUO is comprised of Circovac, which was the first licensed PCV2 vaccine for both piglets and sows, and Hyogen, which contains Ceva’s unique M.hyo strain and adjuvant Imuvant. Circovac alone or used with Hyogen (DUO) significantly reduced the percentage of PCV2 positive pigs compared to the control group two and three weeks post-challenge (Sibila, M., 2020). In multiple studies comparing M.hyo vaccines, Hyogen was shown to be the most efficient in reducing the lung lesion score in slaughter pigs (Lasierra, M. et al, 2021; Cvjetković, V. et al, 2021). Hyogen has also been shown to reduce the economic impact of M.hyo, due to a combination of improved feed conversion ratio (FCR) and mortality (Espigares, D. et al, 2018). Important respiratory health analysis can be

performed in the slaughterhouse using the Ceva Lung Program (CLP) application, scoring the seven lung lobes for the presence of EP-like lesions (Figure 2) or scarring. The parameters calculated include the percentage of pneumonic lungs, affected lung surface, the enzootic pneumonia index (EP index), the percentage of pleurisy and the APP index. Based on these results, veterinarians and producers can work purposefully on improving lung health and assessing efficacy of current vaccination protocols. This service can be accessed via your veterinarian so please get in touch with them to find out more about how the CLP can support your farm. *Full references available on request. FG

Piglet diets for all Maximising piglet performance is most successful when their nutritional needs are met at each growth stage and tailored to the system and conditions. Cargill’s research into the growing piglet’s requirements led to the development of the Neopigg Max range of diets for use from four days to 18kg. Pre-starter diets encourage intake and prepare piglets for weaning, and are followed by the Neopigg Start, Gain and Advance diets to maximise post weaning growth. Cargill works closely with producers to select the best combination for their individual system. Trials on UK pig units, involving 5,000 piglets, have compared the Neopigg Max diets with Cargill former standard diets. Increases of up to 21.3% in average daily weight gain were seen with Neopigg Max

Start diets from day five, to day 12 post-weaning. Overall, piglets gained an extra 707g in the 23 days postweaning on Neopigg Max Gain and Advance diets compared with the standard diets. Neopigg starter feed diets combine Cargill UK’s knowledge of raw materials and their nutrient availability and interactions, and the company’s global ingredient database with more than two million samples. Each diet in the Neopigg Max range includes a digestive security pack containing Cargill’s processed soy product Provisoy and other key additives to promote gastrointestinal integrity. Diets also include an advanced trace element and vitamin pack and a palatability enhancer to promote intakes. For more information visit www. FG

The Animal Welfare Index Score (AWIS), launched by Greengage Agritech at the Pig & Poultry Fair where it won the New Product Award, measures 18 key elements of environment, productivity and behaviour to develop an animal welfare score. It’s known that good welfare results in better productivity, but with so many variables, a simple method of measuring welfare has been lacking, explains Greengage chief commercial officer Tim Hodgetts. AWIS gives data to the farmer and ultimate consumer on what is happening in the animal’s growing cycle. Coupled with Greengage sensors, it continually monitors animals and provides stats on sheds 24/7 (every 15 minutes), sending an alert when a predetermined maximum or minimum has been breached. While there are many sensors on the market that can monitor factors such as animal movement,

temperature, noises, lighting, environment, humidity and air quality, AWIS brings that data together in a score, and third-party data can be factored in. Greengage algorithms provide layered data so farmers can say on any day, week or crop what the score is, which highlights problems at an earlier stage, linking data with vets etc. Temperature sensors for pigs can pick up health issues days before they occur so they can be treated more quickly and easily. It’s possible that in future produce could be labelled with the AWIS logo to highlight the scoring system to the consumer. FG

‘Connected machines’ key to reducing costs Since January 2019, all new compatible machines1 built by Manitou have the capability to be a ‘connected machine’. This opens-up endless possibilities to improve performance, safety, security, and reduce the total cost of ownership (TCO) for customers, the company reckons. “Connected machines are an essential source of data for our goal of reducing TCO for users,” comments Manitou Group service range manager Olivier le Pesquer. Based on data from early connected machines, Manitou Group has noted significantly lower fuel consumption across all four applications of a telehandler, namely loading, handling, road travel, and operating at idle speed. Connected Machines offer a range of other benefits to users. Firstly, connected machines include a tracker which can communicate the machine’s location at any time and it’s also possible to GeoFence the machine for increased safety and security. Secondly, the dealer or fleet manager will be able to track

the machines and identify their service needs remotely. Preventive maintenance will be made much easier, and the dealer will be able to connect to the machine in advance of a service visit, to ensure that any faults can be rectified during the first visit. Manitou has also rolled out an app users can download called ‘MyManitou’, which has been designed to provide instant access to a stream of data transmitted by the connected machine in real time. The app is a go-to companion providing users with the exact location, fuel level, and maintenance notifications to facilitate their day-to-day operations. Users can also contact their local Manitou dealer via MyManitou to

Biomass boilers promise significant savings As incredibly high energy costs continue to put a strain on the industry, alongside pressure to reduce the carbon footprint on farm, CB Biomass says substantial fuel savings are possible with its Classic Edge range of woodburning gasification boilers – which are also over 90% efficient, with incredibly low emissions. All boilers come with an emissions certificate and are RHI approved. As well as heating buildings, the boilers can also provide hot water for washing down sheds etc. Easy to install, use and maintain, the company says Classic Edge boilers can be plugged into the existing system, and there is an option to leave the existing boiler in place as a back-up. Classic Edge boilers are connected to a new

or existing heating system via a pump and plate heat exchanger using single phase electric supply. CB Biomass says the boilers are comfortable in a variety of applications involving water to water, and water to air, heating systems. They are also supplied with the FireStar ‘cruise’ controller, allowing end-users and installers to remotely monitor the appliance – it even tells users when to load the wood. Sited onto a concrete base, the boilers can be located up to or over 100m from the designated heating system, or systems. With four outputs available (30kW, 53kW, 75kW, and 106kW), Classic Edge boilers are supplied and fitted throughout the UK. FG

arrange work on their machine by a factory-trained technician using genuine parts. All the necessary information will be available, including serial number, warranty details, and other information the dealer may request to arrange for a service or to supply the correct genuine parts. Maxime Deroch, president of Manitou Group’s services and solutions division, says: “We’re very proud to offer our customers this service, which allows them to work without worrying about their machine. They are free to focus on their core business. Benefiting from a connected machine gives them the opportunity to reduce their TCO, save time, and improve safety and security.” As an added benefit, owners of connected machines will have a two-year or 2,000 hours, whichever occurs first, factory warranty. Customers will be able to extend their warranty by 1–4 years, offering peace of mind for up to six years, or 6,000 hours – whichever occurs first. FG

Make better maize silage

Biotechnology company Chr Hansen has discovered new strains of bacteria that preserve silage without relying on high levels of lactic acid. SiloSolve FC contains two unique strains of bacteria that not available in any other inoculant. In maize silage, the crop in the field is invariably contaminated with yeasts and moulds. Some of them cause damage in the standing crop, but others wait until the sheet goes on, and then – fuelled by oxygen – produce toxins that directly affect the stability and health of the silage. Lactate-assimilating yeasts metabolise lactic acid and increase pH, often generating heat and significant dry matter losses as a result, as well as lowering palatability and reducing intake.

• • •

• •

How to make the most of maize silage crops: There's a narrow window for ‘ideal’ cutting. Between 32–36% DM is best Chop length: 2–2.5cm Kernel processing – the starch in the kernel is where the energy lies. The more mature the crop, the less of it will be available to the cow. Processing increases the surface area, giving it a boost of digestibility The enemy of your maize silage is oxygen. It fuels most of the unwanted processes which cause deterioration. Good consolidation and rapid air removal are essential Effective sealing. If air can get into the clamp, losses of dry matter and nutrition will continue. Once the silage is opened, inadequate sealing or compaction allow air

to penetrate, and the heating (‘composting’) process will trigger in the silage face. The top third is especially prone – all silages are ‘springy’ – and oxygen may be able to enter the silage faster than the operator is removing it. When it comes to forage inoculants, they have typically all worked in pretty much the same way. The bacteria in the inoculant converts crop sugars into lactic acid, lowering the pH and preserving the forage. The problem with this is that the resulting silage often contains high levels of lactic acid which can upset the rumen (acidosis) when it is fed, valuable sugars are lost, and it creates a growth media for yeasts which cause heating and spoilage at feed-out.

Livestock The key to this new way of preserving silage is the microbial removal of oxygen from the clamp. L. lactis (O-224) rapidly removes oxygen from the clamp, a process that takes just a matter of hours. The silage fermentation is stabilised very quickly, without heat, with a lower level of lactic acid and the oxygen removal makes sure that the spoilage organisms, yeasts and moulds, are unable to grow. The second bacteria in SiloSolve FC, L. buchneri (LB1819), produces acetic acid to eliminate any remaining yeasts and moulds, protecting the feed value in the forage meaning more energy and protein is available for milk or meat production. The combined effects from these two bacteria mean that the silage rapidly stabilises and the clamp can be opened and fed in just seven days. Chr Hansen says SiloSolve FC is perfect for maize silage for a number of reasons: • Maize is difficult to compact, meaning oxygen is harder to remove. SiloSolve FC removes oxygen in a matter of hours and eliminates up to 98% of yeasts and moulds • This lowers the risk of mycotoxin production in the forage, delivering healthier silage • Less waste in the clamp and at feedout and stays fresher for longer in the trough • Increased starch digestibility up to 12% meaning extra energy for milk production.

Generation 2 silage inoculants Chr Hansen, the world's largest biotechnology company, discovered new strains of bacteria that preserve silage without relying on high levels of lactic acid. SiloSolve FC contains two new and unique strains of bacteria, the patented oxygen scavenger Lactococcus lactis (O-224) and Lactobacillus buchneri (LB1819). These strains are unique to SiloSolve and not available in any other inoculant, anywhere.

Plan ahead to balance beef and sheep health plans

It can be challenging for mixed enterprise farmers to stick to herd and flock health plans throughout the year. Vet Emily Brown, of Marches Farm Vets, explores practical steps farmers can take to balance the two. “It can be tricky fitting in vaccinations during busy lambing or calving seasons, especially if it’s a springcalving suckler herd, or if lambing or calving periods are more prolonged,” says Mrs Brown.

For example, annual boosters of Heptavac P Plus required for ewes 4–6 weeks pre-lambing can coincide with calving and BVD vaccines for cattle 3–4 weeks before turnout can clash with lambing. A lot of blood

sampling for BVD is also carried out pre-turnout in 9–18-monthold animals and seasonal disease challenges such as worms and flies can occur at similar times for cattle and sheep, she explains. Mrs Brown advises using a health plan template such as the free Red Tractor template. Marches Farm Vets uses an online planning system that sends out a reminder when treatments are due; when each one is done farmers can record it on the system and vets can pick up on progress to help ensure none are missed. It is important to write down full details of the production year within health plans, including lambing and calving patterns, blood sampling and monitoring, along with other management tasks such as condition scoring. Once the plan is complete, you can allocate specific jobs to the right weeks on a calendar, or calendars, Mrs Brown adds. Highlighting areas of crossover can be useful; for example orf and BVD vaccines could potentially be ordered at the same time. Disease? Not On My Farm! ambassador Fiona Skeen, who runs a beef and sheep enterprise on the English/Scottish border, has four calendars for their Aberdeen Angus

The Dairy Show returns to Bath & West for 2022 The Dairy Show is returning on Wednesday, 5th October 2022, combining a comprehensive trade show with an exhibition of dairy cattle. Taking place at the Bath & West Showground, Somerset, it’s an essential date in the farming calendar, organisers say. Along with a plethora of trade stands, there will be a compelling seminar programme, covering the theme of muck. Top class cattle from around the country will compete for the sought-after title of Supreme Champion. Competitions will be running for Ayrshire, Dairy Shorthorn, Guernsey, Holstein and Jersey plus classes for calves and Junior Showmanship. For the first time, the British Cheese Awards will take place at the Show, providing an impressive display of dairy produce including cheese, butter, yoghurt and cream. Judging will take place on 5th October, with visitors being

x suckler herd – the current one plus the previous three so they can see the history and check for recurring problems. They also note maternal behaviour at calving. During busy times, such as lambing or calving, vaccination is always a priority for Mrs Skeen. She has been vaccinating their herd against BVD for 14 years, and it is BVD accredited in Scotland. “Even in the peak of lambing season, I must get cattle vaccinations done – even if it means getting someone in to cover." Mrs Brown advises chatting with the vet plenty of time in advance of when vaccinations are due, and always allowing up to five days for vaccines to arrive. “There could be changes we need to make to the schedule, for example, if there is an issue with availability of the farm’s usual vaccine and we need to adjust from a single to a double-dose vaccine. It could be there is another disease challenge to consider at the same time.” With subsidies being reduced, looking at performance and planning how best to stay profitable is key. Vets can help with health and performance recording, benchmarking and suggesting ways to make improvements, Mrs Brown concludes. FG

Innovation. Experience. Strength.

Our range of self-propelled and single, twin or triple auger trailed feeders with capacities from 5m3 up to 46m3, all available with a wide range of specications and options, makes BvL the ideal solution for all your livestock TMR needs.

Quality mixer ...

Updates for self-propelled mixer wagon The latest updates to the BvL V-Mix Drive range of selfpropelled mixer wagons includes the addition of a user-friendly creep speed and automatic mixing functions as standard. These new standard features ensure even more convenience and precision, in addition to improved animal welfare, BvL says. A consistently uniform feed mixture, combined with maximum performance, is particularly important for animal health and productivity and the new standard features make it easy to achieve this goal in the feeding process. When loading the V-Mix Drive at the silage clamp, the new creep speed function enables the driver to set the maximum travel speed to suit his needs, allowing sensitive control of the accelerator pedal. Fine adjustment of the speed simplifies manoeuvring at the silage face. The well-proven profiled toothed roller then enables extremely gentle removal of the silage without disturbing the structure of the fodder, the manufacturer reckons. After the diet-feeder hopper is filled, the automatic mixing system can be activated at the push of a button. There are settings for the auger speed and mixing time. The result is a consistent feed mix every day. When the set mixing time has elapsed, the augers automatically stop and the machine decreases the

engine rpm to idle speed. Diesel consumption is therefore reduced as soon as the augers are switched off. Additional tasks such as cleaning the feed table or pushing in feed can be carried out at the same time, since the operator does not have to stay in the cab. The creep speed function can also be used when discharging to maintain the individually configured speed for an even flow of the diet mix. The user-friendly controls in the well-organised driver's cab of the V-Mix Drive ensure that every employee on the farm can carry out the feeding process with the same uniformity and high level of convenience, BvL says.

New teat disinfectant is “first of its kind” Evans Vanodine has added a new, innovative product to its extensive teat disinfectant range – Sapphire 1:4, a chlorhexidine-based concentrate teat disinfectant. With many teat disinfectants available in the UK dairy market, choosing one can be confusing. Explaining what makes Sapphire 1:4 unique, Evans Vanodine says chlorhexidine gluconate is an EU- and UK-regulated biocide that has been used for many years in the human care sector as an active material in hand disinfection. It is used by surgeons prior to entering an operating theatre to prevent contamination. Chlorhexidine gluconate’s effectiveness and skin safety is globally acknowledged and proven. In the livestock sector, chlorhexidine gluconate has a history of use in ‘ready to use’ dairy teat disinfectants, but this application is limited by its chemical properties when exposed to high levels

of mineral salts – in particular, but not limited to, water, containing sulphates and carbonates. The presence of these minerals in water has prevented the practical development of a chlorhexidine gluconate concentrate teat disinfectant for dilution at point of use by the farmer, as when diluted in water which contains such minerals, chlorhexidine salts can precipitate out of the solution and become unstable, therefore reducing the effectiveness and performance. This effect removes the protection against mastitis-causing organisms and can cause a subsequent rise in somatic cells, which teat disinfectants normally help to prevent. Evans Vanodine’s chemists, realising the

importance of the high performance and relative cost stability of chlorhexidine gluconate when compared to traditional iodine-based teat disinfectants, undertook a multi-year project to find a technical solution to the precipitation problem of diluting chlorhexidine gluconate in hard water. Sapphire 1:4 is the result of this work, and in July 2022 Evans Vanodine launched the first, true, hard water stable chlorhexidine gluconate disinfectant in the UK. The new formulation allows the concentrated product to be diluted at 1:4 anywhere in the UK, without the loss of performance that occurs when chlorhexidine gluconate is mixed in hard water, or water which contains high levels of sulphates. The intense blue colour of Sapphire 1:4 makes the product easily identifiable. It also contains an emollient system to guarantee high levels of teat skin condition. Extensive microbiological testing under the relevant EU and UK biocide regulation test EN 1656, proves that Sapphire 1:4, when diluted, passes the required efficacy tests, and can be sprayed, dipped or foamed. Sapphire 1:4 gives dairy farmers the option of switching to a new, safe, effective, and highly cost-efficient chlorhexidine gluconate-based teat disinfectant for pre- and post-milking, which the company says offers dairy farmers the confidence that environmental mastitis and high cell counts are a thing of the past.

Chimney fan launches amid soaring demand for ventilation Effective ventilation is vital to the health and welfare of livestock on broiler farms, as well as to farmers’ yields. With this in mind, Hydor has launched its latest round chimney fan, Agri-Max, to help meet demand. Business development manager John Lack explains how the universal fan can help battle challenges currently facing the broiler industry. As farmers contend with winter housing orders due to avian influenza, while heat stress becomes a real concern as summer temperatures rise to peak levels, Hydor – part of Elta Group – has unveiled the latest addition to its range of chimney fans. The Agri-Max helps to meet both new and retrofit applications. Launched earlier this year at the

British Pig and Poultry Fair, the Agri-Max can be installed as a direct replacement for industry-sized chimneys and fan units. As the Agri-Max is designed, built and distributed in the UK, broiler farms have the benefit of quicker lead times on product orders. Installation is a simple process thanks to four universal model sizes (630mm, 710mm, 800mm and 910mm) that can directly replace existing fan units and also fit standard ventilation chimneys in new builds. Hydor will also soon be launching its Agri-Max with EC capabilities, allowing farmers to further control speed and performance of their fans and implement highly efficient ventilation for costeffective operations.

Editor Q&A

Subsidy opportunity for 2022

With BPS payments ending in 2027, alongside current extremely high costs and uncertainty, in this month’s Q&A Sarah Kidby provides an update on potential opportunities available from the Animal Health & Welfare Pathway, due for launch later this year.


What is the pathway and who is eligible? A: Part of the Sustainable Farming Incentive, the Animal Health and Welfare Pathway in England is set to offer subsidies to enhance livestock health and welfare. It is made up of four parts, the first of which was due for launch in spring 2022 but is now expected to open to cattle, sheep and pig farmers in autumn. Farmers will be able to take part in any or all of the four programmes, beginning with the fully-funded annual vet visit launching this year. Due for launch in 2023 are: Disease eradication and control – which will provide funding for veterinary advice and diagnostic testing, across a broad range of priority areas – and the animal health and welfare grants, which are capital investments in equipment, technology and infrastructure. This could include improvements to housing or staff training for example. Finally, the payments by results part of Pathway is in the planning phase and trials are expected


to begin next year. The pathway will initially be open to farmers in England with more than 20 sheep, 10 cattle or 50 pigs, who are eligible for BPS.

What will the vet review involve? A: The review will cover the cost of a 2–3hour vet visit and a short report on agreed recommendations. For sheep farms it also includes lab testing for a Worm Treatment Check, which is a requirement of the scheme. The government will provide £436 per sheep flock, £522 for beef, £372 for dairy and £684 for pigs. Funds will be paid direct to the farmer, not the vet. For those farmers with mixed species farms, a review will be funded for each species. While the government’s disease priorities for the first year are worms in sheep, BVD for cattle and PRRS for pigs, the review will be tailored to the individual farm’s specific disease concerns and priorities. Speaking at a recent Elanco Access to Knowledge (A2K) event, Sheep Vet Society president Rebecca Mearns emphasised that the visit is not the same as health planning or a farm assurance visit. For those who do not have regular vet visits, it’s an opportunity to ‘try before you buy’, to see if veterinary input could improve your farm’s efficiency and profitability, she said. For those who do have a vet on farm annually or more, it’s an added bonus and a chance to discuss any additional concerns. There will be three parts to the visit: • Health and welfare • Biosecurity: Measures to reduce the introduction of disease to the flock, including purchasing decisions, quarantine and isolation, assessment of boundaries, cleaning and disinfection, vaccination where appropriate and testing/treating purchased or returning stock. Vets may be able to point towards grants to make improvements

Medicines usage: The focus is on antibiotics, vaccination and the ‘Plan, Protect, Prevent’ approach. Commenting on Pathway, NSA chief executive Phil Stocker said the association is in favour of the approach, having long advocated closer relationships between vets and farmers to increase productivity and welfare, and reduce carbon footprint. “We expect Pathway to provide an opportunity for farmers to work with their own vet to address any health issues they may be facing specific to their farm. The initial health and welfare review should give an overall assessment of health and welfare on the farm as well as focus on whether internal parasite control is working or not. Our expectation is that Pathway will then go on to provide financial support for disease and parasite screening to raise health status and efficiency of the flock,” he said. While Pathway will not replace the BPS income stream, it will target limited funds to health and productivity gains, he added. Choosing a vet with a passion for the species and relevant training is important, Rebecca said. Vets will receive support on delivering successful review visits, and the Sheep Veterinary Society is offering its own series of workshops for sheep vets delivering Pathway. Speaking at the A2K event, sheep veterinary consultant Fiona Lovatt stressed the importance of having useful data to hand to get the most out of vet visits and to help inform decisions. Some basic data will be gathered by the visiting vet for Defra to inform the national disease picture, but this will be anonymised and is not used for regulatory purposes. Farmers will be able to apply online this year via the Rural Payments service. FG

An unbeatable breed Deep in the heart of the Dorset countryside, Robert Mackintosh and his son Angus run Manor Farm in Milborne Wick, solely stocked with North of England mules and their offspring. Robert has been heading north to buy sheep since 1975, after seeing some mules and recognising the commercial attributes of this versatile sheep. Quite simply, he still hasn’t seen anything that can beat it for doing its job. Robert’s father Ian bought Manor Farm in 1955. Robert, and more recently his son Angus, now run 500 mule ewes and 100 hoggs – as well as retaining 70–80 Suffolks out of the mule ewes, after selecting the best to sell as gimmer lambs and gimmer shearlings. They are sold through Exeter and Hereford auction marts as Robert and Angus feel it is important to support the live auction marts. Last year their Suffolk gimmer lambs at Hereford won first prize out of the 8,000 head sold there, topping at £210. Robert’s dedication and belief in the North of England mule after initially buying them back in the mid 70s saw him buy for others in the area – at one point, he was fetching back 5,000–6,000 mule gimmers from the sales centres in the north, buying from Applebly, Carlisle, Lazonby and Hawes, building up many friendships which endure to this day. This comradeship is another factor in the dedication to the mule, as the community at the marts is good, with great company around and within the ring. When buying gimmer lambs, they look for a long, clean sheep with a sharp head and good skin, and as much power as they can. They buy

to a budget, so aren’t buying all the first pens, but lambs they feel will blossom into good ewes. These types of sheep carry and rear two lambs with ease, milk and mother well, with lambs either to the Texel or Suffolk growing quickly, swelling out to make good fat lambs without much intervention. They are the original easy-care sheep. Other breeds make the claims, but the North of England mule does it all, and has done year after year, Robert and Angus reckon. Fat lambs are sold through Exeter or Sedgemoor markets. The first lambs are selected as soon as they can, selling early lambs once they reach 39kg. They aim for the heavy lamb market and with the fastgrowing Suffolk they soon hit 50kg and above. With all gimmer hoggs lambing and ewes bringing up two lambs apiece, it’s easy to see just how well the North of England mule does for them. If there’s one thing certain in these uncertain times, it’s that the North of England mule continues to be the best in the business, Robert and Angus conclude. FG

Yorkshire farmer Matthew Brown, of Rock Farm, has used Harbro’s concentrate Champion Rumitech 35 to finish cattle since 2014. He finishes 150–160 British Blue crosses and Limousin crosses annually, purchasing at 8–12 months and selling at 550–600kg through the live market. He initially runs them on an introductory diet of silage, rolled barley and Champion RumiTech 35 for 2–3 months – before they progress to the finishing ration of rolled wheat, rolled barley with Champion Rumitech 35, fed ad lib through the hopper. Alkacid is added to combat laminitis. Mr Brown says the product works well: “The pellet form is easier for the cattle to ingest; it

leaves a great coat with lovely shine on them and they look fit. It gives a nice covering of fat, finishing them to a high standard.” Cattle achieve the top trade at Malton most weeks. His local butcher at Whitby, who tries to buy them every week, says he likes the cattle and they kill out well. Mixing concentrates with grain is a cost-effective way to maximise raw materials and animal performance and allows diets to be tailored to different stages of production. The unique additive, RumiTech, allows animals to get more energy from the feed, with less energy wasted as methane. RumiTech is assured by The Carbon Trust to reduce methane emissions and improves FCR by 10%. FG

Limping sheep: Do ewe have a problem on your farm? Farm vet Abbie Louise Smith, of Westpoint Farm Vets in Ashbourne, part of the VetPartners Group, shares some guidance on tackling sheep lameness. Sheep lameness is a condition encountered far and wide by vets and farmers alike, with an estimated 3 million sheep lame at any one point in the UK. Aside from the obvious detrimental impacts lameness has directly on the individual’s welfare and productivity, current lameness levels within UK flocks cost the sheep industry £28 million per year. As

a result, there is a drive to reduce lameness levels to <2% in UK flocks, a goal which can be achieved through close communication with your vet and the implementation of the Five Point Plan. The most common causes of lameness in sheep are those with a bacterial origin. Notable conditions include scald, footrot, and contagious

2185 - Farmacy Farmers Guide August 2022 Advert.indd 1

114 August 2022

102-115 Livestock.indd 114

ovine digital dermatitis (CODD). Transmission of disease from affected sheep, foot trauma, and exposure to wet underfoot conditions are all contributing factors to the occurrence of these conditions. Despite all being bacterial in origin, the treatment protocol implemented is dependent on the condition present: • Scald: Individual cases = antibiotic spray; multiple cases = foot bathing with 10% zinc sulphate or 3% formalin solution • Footrot and CODD: Oxytetracycline injection and antibiotic spray. In any case, it is important to consult your vet to ensure a correct diagnosis is made and allow for a more targeted treatment plan, which helps improve treatment efficacy and reduce inappropriate antibiotic use. You must also seek veterinary advice prior to foot trimming any diseased feet as this must be used conservatively and is only appropriate in certain circumstances. The Five Point Plan is a robust control tool that is currently being used to minimise lameness levels within UK flocks; its use is recommended where the above diseases are present. When each of the steps are used collectively, it aims to boost immunity, increase

natural resistance to disease, and decrease exposure to bacteria.

Cull: Susceptibility to the above conditions is thought to have an underlying genetic component. Culling of chronically infected sheep and not using previously affected rams for breeding helps to boost natural resistance to these diseases within your flock. Avoid infection: Achieved by providing clean and dry underfoot conditions, rotating grazing to minimise pasture bacterial contamination, and foot bathing at key risk periods e.g., after gathering and prior to housing. Quarantine: Bought-in and returning sheep should be quarantined for 28 days before mixing with the rest of the flock to avoid disease transmission. During this period, feet can be examined and treatment undertaken where necessary. Treat: Fast and effective treatment should be implemented as soon as lameness is identified. Speak to your vet where the underlying cause is uncertain. Vaccination: Discuss with your vet the optimum time to administer vaccinations to coincide with key risk periods. FG

Ploughs & Presses Rexius series press rolls from Vaderstad fold to 2.5m width for transport.

Power on the land The topic for this month’s Power on the Land is ploughs and presses, brought to you, as always, by Mike Williams. The mouldboard plough has a very long history, and the evidence currently available suggests that it still has a long-term future. Ploughing was an important first step in crop establishment during Roman times, and in spite of progress in developments such as reduced cultivation technology and direct drilling, the plough is still an important first step in the crop production process on many farms. Ploughing may not be the fastest way to start preparing for the next crop, but it can make an effective contribution to weed control, it is a reliable way to bury crop residues, it can offer soil drainage benefits and it works well in a wide variety of soil types. Recent arrivals in the plough market include Pottinger’s Servo T 6000 semi-mounted plough series

available with from 6–9 furrows with list prices starting from £42,594. The specification list for all models includes the traction control feature that transfers up to 1,100kg of plough weight on to the tractor wheels to improve the traction efficiency and save up to 3.5 litres of diesel fuel per hectare, and all models have Durastar quality reversible points to increase durability. The Nova and Plus Nova specifications include stone damage protection using up to 2,200kg hydraulic release pressure, and working width changes can be made hydraulically. All Servo T 6000 ploughs have 102cm point to point adjustment, and the standard underbeam clearance is 80cm with 90cm optionally available. The Kuhn plough range includes the Multi-Leader series for customers with a medium to high horsepower

tractor. The single-wheel ploughs are designed for 270–360hp and features include a 110-degree turning angle for manoeuvrability at the headland, and working width adjustment is in 5cm steps between 35–50cm per body. The Multi-Leader design is based on a Z frame which helps to reduce the wheel overhang and allows large tyres to be fitted, and the 1.15–1.60m offset range can be obtained by using the sliding drawbar. Underbeam clearance is 80cm with 102cm point to point clearance, the specification can include either T-bolt or Non-Stop Hydraulic safety systems and MultiLeader list prices start £28,928 for a six-furrow plough fitted with T-bolt protection. Increased operator comfort is one of the advantages listed by Ovlac for its Xperience On-Land plough series. This is because a simple control valve can be used to select working inside or outside of the furrow, and

this allows the operator to choose a more upright body position, which is less tiring when ploughing a big acreage. Other benefits claimed for the in-or-out of furrow selection are a reduction in soil compaction because it keeps the tractor wheels out of the freshly ploughed soil, and Ovlac also claims a reduction in fuel consumption and cost because of the improvement in traction efficiency. The mechanism that selects the inside or outside of furrow position is operated hydraulically, with one cylinder adjusting the plough’s body width while a second cylinder closes the plough to increase stability while turning. The Juwel range of mounted ploughs from Lemken are available with 3–7 furrows to work with tractors up to 450hp, and list prices are from £29,332 for a five-furrow Juwel 10 series plough, increasing to £33,449 if non-stop hydraulic continued over…

protection is included. The Juwel specifications include DuraMaxx bodies for a longer working life, the Juwel series and Lemken’s larger ploughs can be equipped with the hydraulically operated Optistone non-stop protection system, and the Juwel 8 series ploughs feature the Lemken IQ Isobus in-cab information and control system. Price examples for Lemken ploughs include £34,821 for a five-furrow Diamant series semi-mounted plough, which is also available with up to nine furrows, and the range-topping Titan 18 series wagon ploughs with 9–13 furrows have a starting price of £86,201 or £96,632 for the auto-reset version. Manufacturing for the New Holland plough range is based in the former Overum factory in Sweden which has more than 165 years of plough-making history. Present day production under the New Holland brand name consists of fully mounted reversible ploughs, and there are also semi-mounted reversible ploughs with between 5–8 furrows to work with a 360hp maximum recommended tractor size. Special design features include an automatic adjustment on the fully mounted ploughs using the front furrow width and alignment to select settings for the other furrows. This and other factors help to boost work efficiency by up to 15% compared with other plough makes, based on test results at the Agricultural University in Sweden, and this achieves a reduction in fuel consumption. Hydraulic non-stop and mechanical safety systems are available, and the hydraulic version has a release pressure with adjustment between 950–1,750kg for each furrow. Press rollers can contribute

The recommended tractor size for Multi-Leader ploughs from Kuhn is 270–360hp.

levelling and consolidation in traditional plough-based cultivations or as a component in various reduced cultivations. Weight is important if the consolidation is to be effective and can achieve a good clod breaking performance, and the Rexius roller series from Vaderstad can provide up to 650kg per metre. There are five models in the Rexius range with working width from 6.5–12.3m, but they all fold to provide a 2.5m transport width and they have a modest power requirement starting from 60hp when working on level ground. Rexius design features include a rubber suspension system on the roller bearings, and these have a double seal to increase reliability by keeping dust out of the bearings. Cambridge roller rings are standard equipment for levelling and consolidation, a heavy-duty version can be fitted for difficult conditions and crosskill rings can be fitted where a more concentrated cultivation action is needed. The Rexius attachments from Vaderstad also include a box to remove large stones exposed by the levelling and cultivation action, there is also a CrossBoard attachment to assist tilth production by increasing the clod crushing action, and single and double knife attachments are available for the CrossBoard. Part of the Wox Agri Services business is providing a contracting service using tankers and umbilical equipment for slurry spreading on farms near its Northumberland headquarters, but it is also the UK distributor for the Guttler range of rollers and presses from Germany. Guttler offers a big range of presses, and the list of options includes front and rear mounting; there is a choice of folding or rigid designs and machines can be equipped mainly for grassland or arable work. Popular choices for larger acreages include the Mediana series available as rigid structures with working widths up to 6m, and the folding version can be up to 9m wide. Mediana presses are equipped with self-cleaning Prisma series rollers and are suitable for grassland and arable work. A recent specialist addition to the range is the GreenManager series consisting of cultivator, roller and harrow combinations designed for working in vineyards and fruit production. FG

Ploughs & Presses

Family farm impressed by one-pass plough and press Aiming to save time without compromising on the quality of work it carries out, family farming business AR & SA White, of Penwine Farm, St Mabyn, recently added an ES250 five-furrow reversible complete with integral Packomat press to its machinery fleet. “We’ve run Kverneland ploughs for years, but this is our first one with a Packomat,” explains Mark White. “And, based on its performance, we’ll probably have another.” The farm has three ploughs, with

the oldest model kept as back-up. The two newer models handle the bulk of the workload, according to cropping. This includes spring and autumn cultivations, that can see each plough cover around 200–240ha each year.

The five-furrow format is preferred for the convenience of delivering a generous output with 200hp tractors, and its ability to travel safely between blocks of land compared to a larger plough with additional furrows. “The Packomat is effectively a free cultivation pass without putting in a wheeling,” he says. “With slatted boards, we’ve got an efficient ploughing set-up that really suits our soil types. And with a lot of steep land, the ES250 is just the right size of plough to get us ahead of planting.” Supplied by Vincent Tractors, the plough is used at depths of around 10in for potatoes and 6–7in for cereals, with hydraulic furrow width adjustment making the most of output with the farm’s many different soil types. With an intensive spring

workload for potatoes, the business draws on owner-operators to help out, and Peter Alford of Tregarrick Farm (pictured), ran the plough this spring on his Fendt 724, for Penwine Farm. “This plough is very easy to set-up,” says Peter. “It never goes out of line, and it matches up perfectly pass-to-pass. “I’ve never used a plough with an integral press, and the convenience of ploughing and pressing, compared to my six-furrow plough, is superb. I’d like one of these back at home,” he adds. “And with slatted boards, it pulls easily.” FG

Peter Alford reckons the ES250 is easy to set-up and it also pulls easily.

New furrow press with transport option Many farmers use a traditional drag furrow press in combination with a reversible plough. This enables a cost effective first pass after ploughing to consolidate, break down clods and preserve moisture if needed. The Lemken WDP furrow press is available in various models with 700 or 900mm ring diameter, 30- or 45-degree angled rings for different soil types and as single or double row rings. Thanks to the ring construction without individual hubs, the working width can be easily adjusted by adding and removing rings; this allows the press to be precisely fitted to any width of plough. The press’s construction without a central axle also prevents clogging, and sturdy high wear resistant rubber cleaning bands are also available to keep the press blockage free. As plough

size and furrow widths get wider, furrow presses are becoming wider – often over 3m in width. Transporting the furrow press from field to field can become time consuming and difficult on narrow roads. Lemken has developed a transport method for furrow presses over 3m in width, with a hydraulically operated transport function. A pair of wheels with drawbar are lowered to allow the press to be ‘end towed’ on public roads. When in the field the drawbar is conveniently folded, and the wheels lifted hydraulically to stay with the press. This option will be available to order from January 2023. FG

Ploughs & Presses

New model can plough inside and outside the furrow

Ovlac has added the new XPerience On-Land to its range of ploughs – with the most distinctive feature being that it is possible to plough inside and outside the furrow by just opening a valve. Other advantages of the new model include less compaction of the terrain, since the tractor’s wheels don´t go over the already ploughed land; and a reduction in costs, since it allows more traction, which translates into less fuel

being consumed. Additionally, there is an improvement in the operator’s body posture, the manufacturer says. Explaining how it’s possible to plough in and out of the furrow, the company explains

that the oversized hairpin is controlled by two cylinders. One controls the first body width and the other closes the plough for a safe turning. To go from in-furrow to out-of-the-furrow, all the operator has to do is open or close the valve. The oscillating shaft means the perfect balance is kept and prevents weight being loaded on the tractor. Power is not a limiting factor in this plough, but the minimum recommended is 150–160cv. Alongside these new features, the alreadytested features of the XPerience plough remain. The parallelogram system allows you to adjust the plough from the tractor’s cabin, even when it's moving. The straight bodies optimise the flow of debris, and its two-wheel support lets you decide between advanced and rear wheel. It’s available in two security systems (hydraulic and shearbolt) and a great variety of accessories to adapt to your land, Ovlac says. Meanwhile, Ovlac UK is increasing its sales in shallow ploughing. The whole range has proven to be indispensable when it comes to eco-ploughing, if not the only method, the manufacturer reckons. Choosing between a varied range of models to suit the customer’s budget and terrain, there are conventional, mounted, and semi-mounted, plus a wide variety of rear accessories to meet all customers’ needs and give you the ploughing you deserve, Ovlac concludes.

PFC’s new range of rollers promises to offer an array of cultivation and consolidation options, with a long working life and excellent results, the company reckons.

cultivation and drilling conditions arise, keeping moisture in the ground is essential for improved seed germination and establishment. The 600mm setup also provides improved cultivation, especially in heavier clay soils, which will reduce the passes required and therefore fuel and equipment depreciation cost. The front breaker paddle can be engaged by hydraulic rams which allow for infinitely variable depth control for optimum cultivation as soil type or conditions change. The breaker paddles provide excellent levelling, PFC says. When drilling into a level seedbed, the seed placement is more uniform, providing even germination and establishment. Each individual section pivots at the end, ensuring stones are effectively pressed down, without compromising the levelling result. This also reduces harvesting cost from potential breakages from stones. Cambridge rolls with breaker paddles provide an array of cultivation and consolidation options, PFC concludes. FG

Allowing you to spread with confidence British-built Titan rear-discharge muck spreaders are designed and manufactured by Teagle Machinery at its plant near St Agnes in Cornwall. Produced in a dedicated facility with a highly skilled workforce, the Titan range of muck spreaders offers a selection of seven models. The range starts with the smaller, manoeuvrable 6.3m3 version and is topped off with the Titan 17 capable of a capacity equal to 20.1m3. The spreaders are grouped into the following ranges: Compact range – Titan 6, 8 and 9 (6.3–11.2m3) Agri range – Titan 10 and 12 (10.2–14.8m3) Pro range – Titan 15 and 17 (15.4–20.1m3). To get the most from your manure, the Titan beater system delivers a fine, wide and even spread

pattern, Teagle says. The shallow auger angle, large tip overlap and high tip speed ensures a thorough mixing and shredding action for faster nutrient release. Teagle quotes its customers as saying: “The Titan copes well with the wide variety of muck, producing an excellent, even spread pattern across the field that is essential for applying nutrients and soil conditioning.” Heat treated Boron steel has twice the flexural strength of mild steel, ensuring the company’s auger, beater spirals and flight tips provide

durability, wear resistance and greater service life, whilst offering protection against abrasive materials and foreign objects found in the muck. Calibrated high-strength bed chains, up to 18mm diameter in the Pro range with a combined minimum breaking load of 83t, are designed for tremendous strength and durability. A hydraulic pressure relief valve provides protection against damage. Teagle carries a comprehensive stock of spare parts which are available for next day delivery.

The optional Isobus variable rate weigh cell system, which is available on models across the Agri and Pro ranges, utilises four 20t rated weigh cells on the axle and drawbar. Target application rate is entered into the controller, which then monitors the load and adjusts the bed chain speed accordingly. GPS variable rate control can either be via an existing tractor Isobus terminal or is available as an optional accessory. Combining GPS and weigh cells enables you to set, monitor and automatically control spread rates on the move. The Isobus Variable Rate Weigh Cell System from TopCon is available with a 7in XD or 12in XD+ monitor for ease of operation and full rate control. FG

Simple spreader makes a big impact When William Miller’s new Bunning Lowlander 105 manure spreader arrived in December 2021, the price of bagged fertiliser was nudging £800/t – which placed even greater significance on accurately spreading his organic manure at the optimum time. The flexibility to spread his own manure when he needs to, and to guarantee accurate application, are key factors which led to Cumbrian farmer William Miller changing his approach to buying a simple manure spreader, rather than hiring one for his regular applications. Mr Miller, who farms in partnership with his wife Emma, bought a new Bunning Lowlander 105 Twin Vertical Auger (TVA) to replace a second-hand Bunning Lowlander 90 TVA that he had owned since 2018. Before this, Mr Miller hired in machines to spread his stockpiled heaps in bulk batches. “One of the ways I justified buying the original spreader was looking at what it cost me to buy and comparing it with the price of a lorry load of fertiliser. When I brought the Lowlander 90, it was the equivalent of two loads of fertiliser. If you produce your own organic manure from livestock, there has never been a better justification. “We must be doing all we can to reduce the reliance on bagged fertiliser and bought-in feed costs. For grazing land, feeding the grass with the same nutrients in the farmyard manure would be the equivalent to £117/ha in bagged fertiliser.” The 145ha High Aketon Farm in Fletchertown, Cumbria, likes to keep costs fixed, and flexibility at the heart of every operation. The manure is produced from a 400-strong herd of predominately Limousin cattle, that are brought as stores and finished on farm, while there is also a 350-strong flock of Texel ewes.

Spreader upgrade The purchase of the Lowlander 90 was all Mr Miller needed to convince him of the benefits of owning rather than hiring, and in December 2021, the 90 was replaced with a new Bunning Lowlander 105 TVA, supplied by dealer Rickerby. “At today’s fertiliser price, the cost to upgrade to a new machine was the equivalent to 75% of just one lorry load of bagged fertiliser, so I knew there would never be a better time to justify a new spreader. “Financially, it looks more attractive to hire as there are small costs a couple of times a year rather than an initial outlay and ongoing maintenance. However, from a field management point of view, there were issues with achieving the right application timings for some crops, and the knock-on consequences could mean requiring more bought-in fertiliser later in the year,” explains Mr Miller. The Lowlander 105 has a heavyduty fully welded construction and uses twin 695mm dynamically balanced augers with 10mm thick Boron auger flights. The augers are fed by a full-width slatted floor with 16mm chains, and it has a capacity of 12.6t with a heavier duty axle.

extra that has improved accuracy with the new machine. “At the build stage, I added the sludge kit to help breakdown lumps of bulky material, but the biggest improvement in spreading accuracy has been the addition of a rear canopy, which attaches to the rear of the machine and forces material to be spread by the bottom blades rather than applied from the full length of the auger.” Bunning offers a rear canopy for farmers spreading dry products such as lime and compost to achieve a positive accurate wider spread. When spreading farmyard manure, the canopy helps to further break down bulky or heavy straw content manure and ensures an even-sized product is applied across the whole field. “Before the canopy, we would have to put the harrows over the field after spreading to break down the bigger lumps before putting

stock back into graze. The rear canopy does an incredible job of delivering a consistent product to the bottom blades. “We use it nearly all the time now to guarantee reliable application and it allows us to graze the fields very quickly after spreading. It also means we can go further with each load. I added a wide-angle PTO kit to allow turning on the ends without switching off the PTO drive each time,” says Mr Miller. The new machine boosted carrying capacity by 1,000kg, but, crucially for Mr Miller, didn’t increase the chassis length, which was a key consideration when operating on the small lanes around his farm. He also went for narrow body pressing, which reduces the width of the spreader by 100mm when running 580/70 R38 tyres and further helps with tight gateways. FG 89072

New slurry pump is fast and efficient A dairy farm near Bristol has found a new slurry pump improved efficiency and saved costs, turning a tedious and expensive job into a breeze. “As the price of everything seems to be going up, you’re constantly looking to keep overhead costs low and you can’t afford to be wasting diesel or time,” says Chris Simmons, who farms with his family near Bristol. “With the massive fertiliser price rise recently, we are trying to make more efficient use of our slurry and apply it at the correct time. With the Ferrari pump, we

have made the job so much quicker and get application times spot on to get the best uptake in nutrients.” The farm has about 600 cattle and milking is done with four robots. “Having a relatively small team leaves us very little time to do the jobs we want to be doing around all of the animal husbandry. We try to do as much as we can to keep costs

down. Since using the Ferrari K18 slurry pump, it has really made slurry spreading, previously a tedious and extremely expensive job, a breeze. “The tractor isn’t revving away trying to pump the slurry which saves so much diesel. Having the Ferrari pump and 5in pipe really is an impressive combination, consistently pumping 200 cubes per hour, sometimes more, at 1,500rpm.”

Spreadwise is the only official dealer for the UK and Ireland offering the full range of Ferrari and Bauer pumps. The Ferrari pump range is extensive and very well suited to the UK pumping market in both performance and budget, Spreadwise reckons. The Ferrari K18 is the flagship model being compared to other flagship models from other brands. “We are regularly spreading at 1,800m away from the farm. We are a relatively flat area so that is in our favour, but I’m not convinced another pump would push slurry that far. Previously we wouldn’t have got that far but since using the Ferrari K18 we can get to every field we want to on the farm,” Chris adds. Spreadwise also offers a full range of slurry equipment such as dribble bars for tankers and umbilical spreading applications, pipe reelers, slurry mixers and slurry separators. Based and manufactured in-house at its production facility in the Midlands, with the company’s dedicated and experienced staff and large dealer network, Spreadwise provides a full backup service for all products and installations.

Extensive range for muck and slurry handling When it comes to comes to the handling of muck and slurry, Hi-Spec Engineering reckons it has the ideal solution in its comprehensive range of machinery. The Hi-Spec tanker range includes a wide range of models with capacities from 3,600–22,700 litres, all available with numerous filling and other options. All Hi-Spec vacuum tankers are manufactured using high quality British steel and incorporate internal implosion rings and a collared dished end as standard to ensure the strongest possible construction. All tanks are fully supported by the complete chassis frame and models are available with both standard or stepped recessed axles. The recessed

axle lowers the centre of gravity, which not only improves stability both on the road and on undulating ground. The wide range of filling options includes high-capacity pumps and a cab operate 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. Various spreading attachments are available, including the Hi-Spec trailing shoe in working widths of 6.0,

7.5, 9.0 and 10.5m, and dribble bar. The trailing shoe 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. New this year, the Hi-Spec dribble bar is chassis-mounted and has a working width of 7.5m, folding down to 2.55m for transport. It features 30 flat hose outlets, fed by a Hi-Spec distributor with an integrated stone trap. The dribble bar only required a single double-acting spool valve and design includes a splash plate

with two blanked off filling points for optimum functionality. Alternatively, a wide range of disc injectors (Bomech), dribble bars (Vogelsang or AgQuip) and trailing shoes (Bomech or AgQuip) can be used in conjunction with the tankers. The range of spreaders from Hi-Spec Engineering includes both the rear discharge Xcel 1250 spreader and two side discharge machines. The Hi-Spec Xcel 1250 is unique in that it 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. The material to be spread is moved rearward by a single slat marine grade floor chain, driven by a hydraulic motor with overload protection and variable speed adjustment. Two Hi-Spec side discharge spreaders are available – the 8m3 SS800 and the 10m3 SS1000. As with the tankers, Hi-Spec manure spreaders are built using heavy-duty 5mm thick British steel and feature a 3mm lid. Standard specification includes a ring hitch, hydraulic braking and LED road lights, while the SS1000 also incorporates centralised greasing. FG

Tractor and loader combinations are a straightforward choice For customers who wish to upgrade their loader, Zetor UK can provide the familiar TracLift range to fit its most popular models – the company reckons the TL range offers everything you need, including SoftRide, as standard. FG

Zetor Tractors says it has been well-known in the UK for producing easy-to-use tractors for more than five decades. The current agricultural line-up features three ranges covering the 70–170hp sector. The Major CL is a 76hp diesel only tractor with 12x12 mechanical transmission and is ideally suited to the smaller livestock producer or yard work. It’s available in standard build with 30kph road speed, Beacon and two DA services, or in Lux build, which adds air conditioning, folding instructor seat, adjustable steering column and revised control layout to the standard spec. Proxima offers 76–117hp in three spec levels; CL comes with 12x12 mechanical transmission, while the GP adds two-speed Powershift to the CL spec and offers 16x16 transmission, and the HS model adds three-speed PowerShift with AutoShift and hydraulic forward/reverse control. All Proxima tractors have diesel only engines with the latest emission control, and Zetor’s straightforward approach to tractor building. Forterra tractors provide 96– 148hp from 4-cyl diesel engines with

AdBlue and emission control and are available in three models (CL, HSX, HD). All Forterra tactors come with three-speed powershift, Electronic Linkage Control, air conditioning and Extending Pick-Up hitch as standard. The CL has a mechanical transmission offering 24x18 gears, while the HSX and HD come with the new 30x30 Eco 40 transmission – with the latter offering the newly revised cab featuring short gear stick and electric spools. Crystal has the same familiar specification as the high spec Forterra HD model but adds six cylinders for more power and balance required by more demanding applications. Zetor tractors are regularly paired with loaders due to their popularity in the livestock and mixed farming sectors. Zetor ZM loaders are a perfect companion to any Zetor tractor and

come with self-levelling, 3rd service and Euro headstock as standard.

Market-leading sales as machinery company celebrates milestone A trio of Vervaet Quad 550 self-propelled slurry applicators near the end of the production line.

This year’s sugar beet campaign will mark the 30th anniversary of Vervaet machinery in the UK, as importer J Riley Beet Harvesters (UK) Ltd reports a market-leading level of sales. Harvester production is well underway at the Vervaet factory at Biervliet in the Netherlands, and the company has also produced more than 60 self-propelled slurry applicators this year – a record number. Although parts shortages have plagued some manufacturers, J Riley says Vervaet customers can remain reassured that everything is

available from stock. J Riley sales manager Matt Carse comments: “We have sold considerably more harvesters than all of our competitors, and we also have a number of new slurry applicators now working in the UK. In these uncertain times we are glad to be able to provide maximum parts availability from our own extensive stores

which are backed up by those of the manufacturer just across the water. As a company we are confident that we are offering our customers the best package available, with industry leading service and backup, and this fills me with confidence to push the Vervaet brand even further in the UK. “I’m extremely excited to see the new developments that Vervaet has made within the last two years,” continues Matt. “We have seen the launch of the Quad 550 selfpropelled slurry applicator and the introduction of the rollerbed option for sugar beet harvesters, and I see an exciting future for both sides of the product portfolio. The market for self-propelled slurry applicators in this country is growing, and although the size of the beet crop is fairly stable our harvester customer base is actively increasing thanks to continued sales success.” Rileys anticipates a growing market share and with Vervaet and Rileys being family-run companies, they retain the ethos of long-term

personal relationships between the customer, importer and manufacturer. Jonathan Hoekman, sales manager at Frans Vervaet BV, says that while Vervaet is a market-leader across Europe with its self-propelled slurry applicators, it has been a little behind in the UK due to not always having the right machines for British demand. “But the Quad was designed with the UK market in mind, and it is proving to be the right machine. Rileys has a very professional team which is fully focused on service and customer care, and with the combined power of our two companies I envisage that we will become UK marketleaders in slurry application technology too.” Customers typically consider product, price and service, and he says Vervaet now has an “excellent range” tailored for the UK market, and while prices conform to the market, the factory rebuild programme offers a higher trade-in value for used machines. “Combined with Rileys’ backup I am sure we offer an unbeatable combination,” he concluded.

Keeping on top of regulations Low emission slurry spreading equipment (LESSE) is important for cross-compliance. Major Equipment says it produces durable, low-maintenance slurry handling solutions for farmers to stay on top of regulations. The Major Retrofit dribble bar and trailing shoe slurry spreaders are universal units. Both can be mounted onto any tanker make or model without welding or fabricating. Available in 7.5m working widths,

both use a powerful Vogelsang macerator to distribute slurry evenly and consistently through 30 outlets for precise application. Either system can be used with an existing splash plate. For extra protection, the applicators are hot-dipped galvanised. For a complete slurry handling solution, Major offers four classes of tankers – Agri, Contractor, Alpine, and Tandem. “All our tankers have a separate chassis supporting the barrel, unlike other tankers where the

tank and chassis are one unit,” says James Cox of Major Equipment Ltd. “This means 80% of the weight is carried on the tanker’s axle and the remainder is carried on the tractor drawbar. This design prevents cracking from the stress of pulling heavy loads and for longer distances.” Important considerations for farmers travelling between sites.

All barrels are produced from 6mm steel and fitted with road safety features including breakaway cable, hydraulic brakes, and rubber buffers on drawbar for easier towing and smoother journeys. A galvanised finish comes as standard with painted coating as an option. For more information, visit the company's website. FG

Make muck scraping easier Compact tractors come into their own when working in the cow sheds on farms, as they are smaller than the ag tractors on the yard. This makes it ideal for negotiating around the barns – quick and easy to manoeuvre whilst getting the muck scraping task completed. With their high use, they can be left with the muck scraper attached at all times so you can just jump in the cab and scrape quickly. The IQ transmission gives clutchless gear changes with a forward and reverse shuttle lever, which Iseki says is much simpler than the HST transmission which can rev up and down the gears, causing unnecessary wear and tear. Once road registered, the Iseki TG tractor can also give the flexibility of easily moving

Flails for the cutting edge

from different sites with a good road speed. Despite the compact size the tractor cab is spacious even for the tallest of people and the moveable steering wheel allows you to get in and out of the tractor easily with one simple touch of a foot pedal, no dirty hands from the muck lower down as this gets everywhere! A customer in Devon, Richard Read commented: “We have had our Iseki tractor for three years, [...] it has been faultless, an incredibly reliable tractor. I would definitely recommend this Iseki TG6507 IQ tractor to any dairy farmer, it is compact, highly manoeuvrable, easy to drive, incredibly well built and [...] I cannot find another tractor that can do a better job.” FG

Retrofit dribble bars Mastek, based in Cootehill, Co Cavan, Ireland, supplies retrofit dribble bars and trailing shoe applicators, with distributors covering every area of the UK. The company’s extensive knowledge of the slurry tanker market has enabled it to specialise in mounting dribble bars to every make of tanker. Its most popular option bolts directly onto the slurry tanker rear door, with the fill point and splash plate moved to the rear of the dribble bar. This allows the dribble bar to be fitted within a matter of hours. The dribble bar requires two double acting hydraulic services, one set for the folding mechanism and the macerator operated by a change-over switch in the cab and the other service to change

between using the splash plate and the dribble bar. Mastek fits its own award winning ‘SuperCut’ macerator to the dribble bar which was designed specifically to handle long fibre and debris by using six unique V-shaped cutting discs to shear long fibre and plastic. Each hose outlet has a one-way air valve; this gives an even flow and helps to prevent blockages. Sales representative Mark Roberts reported that customers who are now using dribble bars to apply their slurry are noticing increased grass growths, which has been enabling them to reduce their dependency on artificial fertiliser. Mastek will be exhibiting at UK Dairy Day in Telford on 14th September. FG

Tractors UK has been importing the Indian-built Tafe tractor for over 20 years and, although the company experienced some supply issues due to Covid-19, the company now has its full range back in stock. Sales and support are available directly from Tractors UK or via its network of dealers and service agents, who also exhibit at numerous agricultural shows around the country. Tractors UK says Tafe tractors are simple, basic and reliable with no fancy electronics, and come with a reassuring two-year parts and labour warranty. Tractors UK also stocks a comprehensive range of spare parts and offers an in-depth technical backup, both on-site and by phone. These versatile and reliable little tractors are ideal for general farm maintenance, and particularly useful when manoeuvring in tight spaces. They are suitable for operating front loaders as well as toppers, with post drivers or other machinery to the rear.

Muck & Slurry Tanker series offers wide range of options

Putting dirty water in its place Keeping dirty water and rainwater out of slurry stores is becoming essential. Under the new Slurry Infrastructure grants that will soon be available, half the cost of new stores can be grant-aided. However, in most cases, these new stores will need to have an impermeable cover to keep rainwater out and reduce air pollution. The new stores must also enable slurry to be held for up to six months. It is therefore important to ensure only slurry enters the store. Yard water and other forms of dirty water need to be kept separate. These liquids can be applied over a wider time period than slurry and other manures which fall under the ‘Farming Rules for Water’. Dirty water still needs to be spread responsibly.

The proven Briggs RotoRainer is one method of distributing dirty water efficiently, accurately and with minimum effort. Briggs Irrigation managing director, Adrian Colwill, commented: “We have been making the RotoRainer self-travelling irrigators for over 30 years and they are still just as useful as when first introduced. “Keeping water that runs off the yard separate from slurry helps to reduce the total volume of slurry that needs to be stored. Neither should dirty water be allowed to run into clear water drains. If properly applied, it benefits grassland and arable crops. We can supply accurate data to help farmers calculate irrigation rates and get the best from the system.” FG

Dutch agricultural machinery manufacturer Kaweco specialises in slurry tanks, applicators, silage wagons and wheel loaders, and all products are manufactured in Holland. Kaweco outlines its key Profi-series. Profi I (pictured): This entry model in the tanker series is standard prepared for the fixed attachment of a dribble bar or trailing shoe of, for example, Bomech or Vogelsang. The large wheel arches provide a low centre of gravity for high stability. There are three different pump types, each with their own advantages. A rotary lobe, vacuum or screw pump can be mounted on the Profi I. Profi II: Standard equipped as a simple machine but can be expanded to a richly equipped contractor tank, e.g., a lifting device

with 3,250kg capacity is available. Various dosage options are available for both vacuum and rotary lobe pumps. Kaweco’s Isobus Control makes fully automatic dosing possible. Operation is done via the supplied terminal or the tractor terminal. Profi III: Regarded as the professional contractor tank, characteristics are the heavy chassis and independently mounted tank by means of twist locks. This unique construction ensures the tractor’s tractive power is only transferred to the applicator via the chassis. It’s standard equipped with Isobus control and a heavy lifting device so it’s possible to mount a large dribble bar or trailing shoe applicators. This machine is only available with a rotary lobe pump. FG

Muck & Slurry Slurry management experts take on new brand

Make sure your slurry lagoon meets lifespan regulations New or renovated slurry stores are required by UK law to have an expected lifespan of 20 years without maintenance on any part of the tank that sits underground. Ensuring your slurry lagoon has a good quality barrier between the stored slurry and the surrounding soil and water table is important to ensure there is no seepage, which could otherwise result in contamination of the area. Traditionally, slurry lagoons are created using an earth-baked base as a liner as these are considered to be a low-cost solution. However, the clay used must be checked for permeability and, once installed, can be awkward to repair, according to Geosynthetic Technology Limited. The cost of such repairs can be way in excess of the cost of a Geosynthetic lining system

installation, the company adds. Having worked in the agricultural industry for more than 30 years, Geosynthetic Technology provides and installs Geomembrane liners for slurry lagoons, both within the UK and internationally. All of the Geomembrane liners installed by Geosynthetic Technology Limited benefit from a 25-year warranty, helping farmers to ensure their slurry lagoon meets requirements for life expectancy and containment. Liners are also covered by the company’s professional indemnity and product liability insurance, with a £2million value on the policy. The company also operates with ISO 90001 quality insurance. For more information contact the company directly. FG

Storth Ltd has announced that it will be working alongside, and will be the sole distributor for, agricultural machinery manufacturer BeTec Engineering. Tanker trailing shoes are BeTec Engineering’s speciality, with its range varying from 9–30m. With Storth’s extensive knowledge of slurry management, coupled with BeTec’s product development, the customer will benefit from a machine that has been trialled and tested and is suitable for farmers and contractors alike, Storth reckons. The trailing shoe is designed for use on grassland and arable land, for applying slurry directly to the soil surface with minimum contamination to the plant leaves. This also provides a quick delivery of nutrients to the root structure of the crop.

Founded in 1999, Storth Machinery is a leading UK manufacturer of slurry equipment, which is reiterated in its slogan ‘ScrapeIT - PumpIT - SeparateIT StoreIT - MixIT – ApplyIT’. Storth says 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 to installation, commissioning and after sales service care. With the nutritional value of slurry being key, Storth provides a range of tanker and umbilical application equipment to ensure farmers get the most out of their slurry, especially now with the rise of fertiliser prices.

FARMERS GUIDE 25 YEARS AGO In August 1997, a ‘Point to Ponder’ from the Farmers Guide editor’s desk noted that, although 130mm of rain fell in June, breaking records at 225% of average rainfall, we were still in drought conditions. John Hodge reported that interest in the machinery lines at the Royal Show appeared rather flat, although there were several new or improved machines to be seen. Valmet showed the new Mezzo 600 with an 80hp turbocharged engine, optional 36-speed Delta Powershift and two-speed power take-off. Prices started at £32,500 for the basic 4wd model. Clayton offered an optional multifunction steering system for its 110 and 120hp models with five 2wd and 4wd steering modes. Case IH had three new models in

the Maxxum MX range and Sutcliff introduced a new big brother for the original Mini-Trak based on a Ferguson TE 20. The new Sutcliff Smallholder, based on the FE 35, had a Lister Petter power unit and live hydraulics. Sanderson, soon to become wholly owned by Claas, showed a new range of grain and digging buckets for its forklifts and Dowdeswell had a new rubber covered packer roller for its power harrow. Show reports included the Royal Norfolk where Johnson Brothers sold all four of the Case IH tractors on its stand and Happisburgh Farm Services exhibited a mobile 12,000-gallon slurry mobile tank. The Ben Burgess stand won the prize for the best machinery stand where the exhibits included the Agriaid, a gadget which could be attached to the bonnet to help the driver line up the tractor and keep it in a straight line. Unsettled weather reduced the attendance at the Lincolnshire Show where R.W. Marsh had an interesting exhibit on its stand in the shape of the

first ever Claas combine, built in 1937. Farm Machinery News reported that Dowdeswell was to build potato equipment for Richard Pearson. Malgar introduced new 10.5t and 12t rear discharge manure spreaders with hydraulically-driven floor conveyors, and Driffield farm contractor Swaythorpe Growers had bought two Ploeger pea harvesters. A Norwich company was importing the latest Weidemann compact loaders from Germany and Spaldings introduced a protection coil for hydraulic hoses which could be put over hosepipes in vulnerable positions. Essex dealers Blyth & Pawsey celebrated 50 years with an open day at Ridgewell and the qualifying heats for the National Vintage Ploughing Championships were coming to Suffolk. And finally... vintage advertisements in the yellow pages included an Essex farmer inviting offers for a fairly complete Albion binder, which needed an overhaul before harvest, and a Cambridgeshire reader wanted to buy a trailed combine harvester, possibly an IH B 64 for the coming harvest. FG

RANSOMES COMBINE HARVESTERS Ransomes, Sims & Jefferies made an experimental trailed combine harvester built round a thrashing machine in the mid-1940s. Driven by an engine on top of the drum, it had a pick up borrowed from a straw trusser to collect a previously cut crop which was elevated to the threshing drum. The grain was bagged up on the machine and the chaff returned to the ground. Ransomes marketed its first combine harvesters in 1953 with the trailed MST 42 from Sweden. The power take-off driven 4ft 6in cut harvester had a 42in wide drum and bagging off platform. The 5ft cut MST 56 with a grain tank or bagging off platform was added 1959. With a lack of demand for trailed combines, Ransomes introduced a self-propelled model, the 902 in 1958. The new straight through tanker or bagger harvester with a 62hp Ford Trader diesel engine and a top speed of 11mph had

a 10 or 12ft cutter bar and four straw walkers. The 8ft cut 801 combine, introduced in 1963, had a transport width of 8ft 6in and was small enough for narrow country lanes. The 801 had a 42hp Perkins engine, 36in drum and four straw walkers. The 6t/hr 10 or 12ft cut 1001 tanker combine harvester was next in line. Launched in time for the 1964 harvest it had a 60hp or optional 90hp Ford diesel engine mounted on the chassis, a 39in wide drum, four straw walkers and a 554-bushel grain tank. Prices started at £2,695. The 9t/hr Cavalier with a 90p Ford diesel engine, a 12 or 14ft cutter bar, twin threshing drums and four straw walkers superseded the 1001 in 1967. The 7.5t/hr Crusader, a smaller version of the Cavalier, replaced

the 801 in 1968. The Super Cavalier, with a £6,780 price tag and a 10, 12 or 14ft quickdetach cutter bar, replaced the Cavalier in 1974. It was discontinued in 1976, when 130 years of unbroken Ransomes threshing machine and combine harvester production came to an end. FG The Ransomes Cavalier was designed for farmers with a large acreage of cereal crops.
