“For straw you can select to make a harder bale core on the control box and bigger 5 foot 6 inch bales means less handling for bedding.” Angus Wielkopolski runs 2 mixed arable and livestock farms in Yorkshire. The two farms are 40 miles apart and on one farm Angus runs a Fusion 3 and on the other farm a Fusion Vario. Before Angus bought his Fusions he was making all hay but wanted to get into haylage due to the increased feed value. “We get much better output from the haylage when compared with the old hay system” he commented. Angus makes 12,000 round bales per year, 10,000 of which are 4ft round bales of haylage and he also does two thousand 5 foot 6 inch bales of straw. Angus said “The McHale Fusion Vario is a very versatile baler, with it you can make different bale sizes depending on the crop type and the way you have the farm set up.” He continued “For straw you can select to make a harder bale core on the control box and bigger 5 foot 6 inch bales means less handling for bedding.” On evaluating whether to buy a McHale product or not Angus said “I spoke to a lot of McHale users and they were very happy with their McHale products. McHale’s reputation for machine build and service was good and the second hand values in magazines was excellent.”

With Farmers Guide sales director Greg Goulding and the team

The last stage of lockdown might have been delayed by a few weeks, but thankfully we’ve still had a busy month being out and about creating great content for this 220-page issue.

FG was invited to meet the star of Amazon’s latest show, 3 While he may not be Clarkson’s Farm, at the roof-top bar of a posh London hotel. operating his farm business While we don’t usually fill our columns with celebrity gossip, quite to the scale of our readers, we think Clarkson's we felt this was different enough to take notice. Farm may go some way to What really interested us is that Jeremy, the love-or-loathe changing public opinion of car presenter, is a straight talker, and with his fame, has the British farming for the better. ability to change the general public’s perception of farming. 4 At the time of writing, both He does start the show being a little silly, with an inappropriate the Cereals and Groundswell Lamborghini tractor that’s too big for his barn, before making events are confirmed as a mess of the tramlines when drilling. But there’s a real serious going ahead, and the FG team will be happy to chat – side to the programme. Jeremy bought the 1,000-acre farm in so feel free to say hello if 2008, but took management of it in 2018 when his manager you see us there. retired. Starting as a real novice, he quickly realised how difficult farming is; telling us: “I have learnt a lot in the two years, and in 5 Machinery editor David Williams visited JCB's 40 years I’ll know half as much as I need to know.

And the government’s not being particularly helpful either, saying we must diversify, or retire and they’ll give us a cheque for £7.50 or whatever the latest hair-brained mad schemes are from the people who have no business running the nation’s agriculture. We should give farmers a lot more respect. We’re all eating what they produce.” Once Jeremy had answered the tabloids’ questions about wild wolves and Theresa May running through fields of wheat, we managed to ask him about the profitability of farming. 1 Farmers Guide editor

Rachel Hicks visited the Elsoms trial plots in Cowlinge early in June, to see how the company's current portfolio and future pipeline are faring.

FG: Without any subsidies or farm payments, can a farmer make a profit from a farm like yours? Jeremy responded: “Last year? No. The weather was awful, it never stops raining. Blame the car programmes for global warming. Top Gear ruined it for everyone. But on a good year, maybe, but it’s really tough.” FG: So, with farming being so tough, would you recommend young people getting into farming? With no hesitation, Jeremy burst out: “Yes! It would be fantastic for young people to get into farming. You learn more in a year of farming than you do in any other profession. You have to learn about everything and be a midwife, politician, gynaecologist, tractor driver and a mechanic. It’s a great way of life. It’s the happiest I have been at work in all my life.” A good farmer would certainly have got better yields, sold the produce at the right time, and not wasted their effort with producing a handful of wasabi and then trying to sell it to London restaurants. They’d also do sheep farming on a bigger scale, or not at all. Seventy-eight sheep make good TV, but aren’t exactly viable. But that said, Jeremy faced the same problems as every farmer does. The lack of time to get the seed in the ground, the weather and even Covid. Could this show really change how the British population see our farmers? We think it could... FG

And finally…. A man visiting a farm notices a pig with only three legs. He asks the farmer about the pig. “Ah”, says the farmer, “that pig, he be a mighty pig, that one. When me ‘ouse got on fire that pig rushed in and dragged me and th’wife to safety. A miracle pig, he is.” “But that doesn’t explain why he has three legs,” says the man. “Aye, a marvellous pig, that pig is”, says the farmer. “When me tractor tipped over with me in it and I was trapped, that pig ran over and managed to get me out. Saved my life, that pig did. Marvellous pig!” “Ok, but why does it have three legs?”, asks the man. “Ah,” says the farmer, “a pig like that you don’t eat all at once!”

Grain & Fertiliser Advice

Harvest is right around the corner, and the importance of taking representative samples safely is paramount With farmers now responsible for taking their own samples, and concern around lack of HGV drivers impacting haulage pricing, there’s a lot of uncertainty to navigate in the upcoming months.

a grain spear? Do you have bags? Do you have a sampling guide and do you know how to sample a bulk store? Every merchant has been circulating their “How To Guides” and bags, but please fill the bags – they are the size they are for a reason – label the samples well, and please don’t cut corners. Ultimately the trade doesn’t charge for basic testing or collection, but the results are only as good as the sample that is provided and in some cases buyers won’t move grain without samples. I also urge caution with sample taking. Take someone with you or take a phone, as your safety is important and you could quickly realise how easy it is to have an accident. UK Farm Safety needs to be front and centre of all that we do. We all need to take less risks and make sure staff are well briefed on expectations and processes, however minor they may seem. Ultimately, we all have a responsibility to make sure everyone gets home every night and that we don’t waste money on avoidable claims or rejections. Let’s try and make this harvest a memorable one for the right reasons by looking after each other and doing the job correctly the first time.

Fertiliser matters With the continuation of firm fertiliser prices globally, the new season campaign only brought a small discount from the levels that were being offered pre-launch, says Openfield’s fertiliser manager, Lucy Hassall (pictured left). Despite this we saw a good uptake in purchasing with the outlook on pricing and demand remaining strong. We have since seen rises of around £20 per tonne across nitrogen grades since the initial offers, currently out to September delivery from some suppliers. Phosphate has been on a steady rise since the start of the year with DAP offerings now over £500 per tonne for June to August delivery. Due to the current potential sanctions the EU may place on the Belarus potash supply, together with the flood risk halting production at the mosaic potash mine in Canada, some disruption on pricing has been seen, bringing recent increases of £20–30 per tonne. Urea remains bullish, with strong Indian demand set to continue for the next few months. FG

Farmers sought in fight against new grass weed

Company expands operations At the time of writing, T H White plans to acquire the agricultural, construction and garden machinery operations of the Murley dealerships at Warwick and Stourport. The expansion of T H White’s businesses to Warwickshire and in Worcestershire is a natural one for the neighbouring dealer, supported by main suppliers, New Holland, Manitou and Doosan. All stakeholders are preparing a smooth transition, meaning continuity for staff and customers, and business as usual for trade with a name change above the door. The deal was scheduled to complete on 30th June 2021 subject to concluding the final stages of due diligence and legal processes. With this change, T H White will take on the main franchises currently on offer at Stourport and Warwick, continuing to serve the farming community, construction companies, contractors, small holders and private estates. The garden machinery range available from Warwick will continue from this location, and the established construction operation in Stourport is set to expand T H White’s existing construction offering from Manitou, New Holland and Mecalac, with the introduction of the Doosan brand.

Farmers are being asked to assist in a new study looking at the spread of rat’s tail fescue – a grass weed that is already posing problems in France, Switzerland, Spain and Denmark, and is now starting to take hold in England and Wales. Predominantly a threat in no-till winter cereals and grasses, where it can rapidly form dense carpets and compete with the crop, it can also be found in orchards and vineyards, and if it does take hold, can

cause significant economic damage. Project lead, Dr Lucie Büchi said: “In the UK, it is present in natural habitats, but its distribution in arable fields is yet unknown. [...] It’s really important we get on top of this before it becomes another blackgrass.” As part of the survey, farmers will be asked to answer questions about their location, soil type and general agronomy that they practice to see if there is any

correlation between these factors, and the distribution or abundance of rat’s tail fescue. To aid with identification of the plant, a free information leaflet and identification guide have been produced by the team, available from the survey webpage. The anonymous survey can be found at https:// greenwich.onlinesurveys. ac.uk/vulpia-survey-uk and will remain open until 31st August.

RoSPA Award winner for health and safety achievements

Tilhill, the UK forestry, timber harvesting and landscaping company, is celebrating after winning the Agriculture, Forestry, and Fishing Sector Award, an internationally recognised award from RoSPA for demonstrating high health and safety standards.

Tilhill has received the Award in recognition of the company’s hard work and diligence in ensuring its staff and contractors get home safely to their families at the end of every working day. Every year, nearly 2,000 entrants vie to achieve the highest possible accolade in what is the UK’s longestrunning H&S industry awards. Tilhill’s managing director Gavin Adkins said: “This is a significant achievement, and

my thanks go to all our staff and contractors for applying our rigorous safety and assurance requirements to everything they do. “It is wonderful that our Health and Safety culture and system has been judged by others to be of the highest quality in our sector. “Whilst we are very proud of our achievement, we cannot stop or even pause our drive to make the forest industry safer.”

Investment in new paint facilities for the highest quality finish As part of an ongoing development programme, Tong Engineering has invested in the latest powder coating and shot blasting systems at its new manufacturing plant in Spilsby. Neil Martin, operations director at Tong Engineering, said: “Our new metal preparation and paint facilities form a key function within the new factory,

and are already proving to drive efficiencies. The advancements in application methods, temperature control and cyclemtime have developed significantly, ensuring that the process is not only more efficient, but the appearance of the end product is consistently to the highest standards in paint durability and finish. “[...] The finish of Tong equipment is designed to

last, giving our customers the confidence that their investment in Tong handling solutions will provide optimum longevity and performance for many years to come.”

News in brief New closed transfer system for sprout suppressant

A new time-saving closed transfer system will enable growers to maximise the area covered when conditions are just right for application of sprout suppressant maleic hydrazide. Wisdom Systems has been working with Certis to help deliver its liquid maleic

hydrazide product Crown MH from 600-litre IBCs to sprayers much quicker than is possible with 5kg packs of granular formulations that are prone to foaming. Richard Garnett of Wisdom Systems says many sprayer operators will already be familiar with the FasTran 850 CTS: “It is widely used to deliver and meter products such as glyphosate and micronutrients from IBCs into the sprayer’s chemical induction system. “With traditional packaging and open pouring,

we estimate that the average large sprayer takes about 10 minutes to fill with water and another half an hour to put all the product in the tank. Our system fills the sprayer with water and the required amount of Crown MH at the same time to save that half an hour per fill-up and enable operators to apply an extra one to two loads per day.” The system also reduces operator exposure risk and eliminates waste packaging. See it in action www. certiseurope.co.uk/crown-mh

Company works with UK farms to offset 100t of carbon Corteva Agriscience has announced that it is working with a regenerative farming organisation to offset carbon emissions from its UK and Ireland operations. The pureplay agriculture company is investing to offset 100t of carbon with ‘Gentle Farming’ – a collaboration of UK farms. William Corrigan, Corteva Agriscience UK and Ireland country leader, said: “We have a leading role to play in

supporting the agricultural industry to become more productive, sustainable and profitable, while also accounting for our own operations. “Corteva Agriscience has a robust, ambitious plan for how it intends to help food systems become more resilient by adopting more sustainable practices. This is a goal we have been committed to for a long time.”

Gentle Farming is an umbrella organisation which brings together UK farms employing regenerative farming practices to improve soil, water and biodiversity. The businesses offer certified carbon offsets which can be measured and validated, enabling farmers to quantify and market the amount of soil carbon they are sequestering into their soils each year.

UK agricultural tractor registrations – May 2021 With the market facing disruptions due to Covid-19 a year ago, it is no surprise that UK agricultural tractor registrations (over 50hp) in May 2021 were higher than they had been 12 months previously. In the event, they were up by almost threequarters on a year before, at 1,103 machines. This was also 10 per cent above the average for the time of year in the previous five years (2015–19). This brought the total for the

year to date to 5,371 machines, 21 per cent more than in the opening five months of 2020 and 7 per cent up on the fiveyear average. Month: 1,103 units +74.8 per cent change (compared with May 2020).

Year to date: 5,371 +21.2 per cent change (compared with Jan–May 2020).

Successful dealer takes on forage wagon brand Opico Ltd has announced the expansion of its partnership with J&S Montgomery, adding the Strautmann forage wagons to the J&S product line up. J&S Montgomery is already a longstanding and successful Opico dealer, selling and servicing the He-Va range of cultivation machinery, Opico range of grassland maintenance equipment and grain dryers and Sky Drills. J&S Montgomery has been a John Deere dealer since 1980 and operates from depots in Beith, Stranraer and Ayr. Commenting, Opico sales director Charles Bedforth said: “We are confident that all our customers will continue to receive excellent support. J&S Montgomery covers the West of Scotland and has a large team of service engineers across three branches.” J&S Montgomery managing director Douglas Montgomery added: “The Strautmann forage wagons are a valuable addition to our machinery portfolio. Alongside Opico’s expertise in grassland equipment, we will offer a comprehensive service to our local customers. “We are looking forward to getting the machines out to our customers for demonstrations.”

Patents revoked after high court battle Strip tillage seed drill manufacturer, Claydon Yield-o-Meter Limited alleged that Mzuri’s Pro-Til and Pro-Til Select single pass drills infringed their UK patent no. 2,400,296 and their European patent no. 2,051,576. Maintaining that there was no infringement of the claimant’s patents, Mzuri’s defence at trial also included arguments that the patents were invalid due to lack of inventiveness over existing prior art and prior use of the invention contained in the UK patent in public. The patents related to the configuration of inline tines for cultivating and seeding in one pass, which is a concept that Mzuri believes dates to the earliest seed drills in history. After the three-day hearing, the Judge handed down the decision on 22nd April 2021 that the patents are to be revoked due to a combination of a lack of inventiveness over existing prior art and prior use of the invention in public.

Improving crop resilience in the face of a changing climatic, agronomic and political landscape How are wheat and OSR breeders working to combat the effects of extreme weather events, gradual loss of many key agrochemicals and the need to change farm practices in order to meet Carbon Net Zero targets? Rachel Hicks writes. Over the last few years, a huge reduction in the ag-chem armoury has meant the remaining actives need careful stewardship, with the threat of resistance hanging like a heavy cloud above agronomists and growers alike. Add to this regular and prolonged extreme weather events at the polar ends of the scale, and the pressure to be carbon neutral, and it’s no wonder so many farmers are considering retiring the combine to the shed and selling up. But it’s not all doom and gloom – in fact, there has never before been so much research carried out into the physiology and geneology of cereals and oilseeds; and genetics, including gene editing, are playing a major part in breeding decisions. Studies on how UK crop yields are influenced by weather patterns have indicated that low wheat and OSR yields are associated with wet winters and hot/dull conditions during spring and summer, comments ADAS’ head of crop physiology, Pete Berry (right). “Low OSR yields have also been associated with cold autumn and low minimum temperatures in early spring. Low yields in 2020 have been at least partially attributed to the very dry spring. Pest pressures, such as CSFB, can make crops less resilient to extreme weather. “The association of low yields with wet winters is probably caused by waterlogging, therefore developing varieties that can tolerate these conditions will be important – this is a particular priority for OSR. “Developing varieties with more autumn vigour may also help to establish a robust root system before winter which is more resilient to waterlogging, as well as helping to tolerate any cold autumn conditions. A warmer spring and summer mean that crops require fewer calendar days to pass through their developmental stages, which means there is less time for them to intercept light, photosynthesise and accumulate biomass. Therefore, developing crops which are less sensitive to rising temperatures will be an advantage. “The obvious solution for minimising risk of drought stress is to grow crops with

deeper roots. Soil management should be the first approach considered for improving this, but varieties with faster autumn/spring root growth, and that can penetrate dense soil, will also be important.” ADAS’ technical director – disease and pest management, Faye Ritchie (right), further comments: “Weather will impact disease risk on OSR. Light leaf spot is active and causing damage even when conditions are cold. Warmer conditions are more favourable for phoma stem canker development, with higher temperatures increasing the severity of the disease and leading to early senescence. “There will be pressure for varieties to be resilient against a wide range of threats – however, pathogens tend to evolve and overcome the control measures we use against them. We need to consider not only how to maximise yields but how to protect genetic resistance and consider other strategies that also contribute to reducing disease risk e.g. sowing date.”

Change takes time Of course, developing new, more resistant varieties isn’t an overnight process – but it is one that will ensure the survival of cereal and oilseed crops in the future. As Bill Angus, of Angus Wheat Consultants explains: “Climate change is not new, but the pace of change has accelerated in the last few years. This brings challenges to many crops that we grow globally. Here in the UK, a new winter wheat variety can take anything from seven to 12 years from the original hybridisation to being present in a farmer’s field. “Although our wheat breeding programme (F1 Seed Ltd) selection process is seen by many as somewhat slow, compared to the larger breeders, consistency of performance over a number of challenging years in the field is becoming more critical and thus we test under adverse as well as optimal conditions – stretching the variety’s ability to deliver consistent yields and grain quality. “There is no shortage of genetic variability

– wheat is a global crop – and we therefore pay attention to key physiological traits which are important under our climatic conditions. We are currently working closely with CIMMYT – the largest publicly funded wheat programme on the planet, breeding wheat for 200 million hectares. This organisation is working in extremely challenging environments and, by working together, we can learn from each other about valuable traits to mutual benefit. The freedom to exchange genetic resources is critical for not only the UK but for global food security. In addition, the UK is well served by a strong pre-competitive public research base – something we value in terms of genetic resources but also ‘know how’. “In the longer term, hybrid wheat, which is known for its ability to withstand major environmental challenges, will play a bigger part in growers’ choices. The most critical step will be having a UK-wide testing capability, fit for purpose, which will be able to identify and promote proven reliable varieties.”

Range of challenges Another breeder who continues to put the ability of its varieties to thrive in a range of challenging growing conditions at the heart of its breeding development programme is DSV, comments the company’s Sarah Hawthorne. Improving yield is still very much at the forefront of breeding development work whilst increasing efficiency of nitrogen utilisation and making plants increasingly resilient are some of the many development areas now being focused on, she says. “When it comes to oilseed rape, for example, developing varieties that can better stand up to flea beetle is a definite priority. “But three years of challenging weather across Europe, ranging from dry conditions at sowing to too wet to drill and hot dry weather at flowering to ‘beasts from the east’, have proven just how resilient modern oilseed can be. “Whilst the inherent high vigour of modern hybrids undoubtedly has much to do with this, the breeders’ focus on developing varieties with deep taproots and large branching root architectures has also really come into its own in recent years.” On the wheat front, new DSV Champion has continued over…

been bred for low-input regenerative farming systems as well as ones focused on maximising outputs, she says. “DSV is the only company breeding wheat in the west of the country and this gives varieties like DSV Champion and Theodore real UK-wide disease resistance and resilience. “Such varieties are going to become even more important in the future as growers look to cut back on inputs and move to more sustainable production systems. “But it’s always important to keep genetic strength at the heart of new varieties so they have the best chance of delivering their full potential in the face of increasingly challenging growing conditions in the future.” Meanwhile, KWS’s Sowing for Peak Performance Initiative (SPP) is all about making sure growers have the genetics they need to meet the challenges of the future. Commenting, Dr Kirsty Richards says: “Our belief is that 80 per cent of what your crop can deliver is locked into the seed you buy and its match to your own individual growing conditions. “For KWS, the challenge of the future is to develop seed varieties that not only deliver the highest performance possible but also allow growers to achieve this in the context of the new production environment we are inevitably moving towards. “For example, in a world where more volatile weather conditions are the norm, stem stiffness and standing power become increasingly relevant and in more challenging autumn drilling scenarios, later drilling capability becomes increasingly important. “KWS is focused on a robust line of SPP varieties coming through the pipeline. All-in-all, we have


According to Syngenta, stability, flexibility, resilience and rooting are all key variety traits to cope with extremes of weather. Yield stability across different seasons is becoming a bigger priority in variety selection with more weather extremes, says Syngenta seeds marketing manager, Tracy Creasy. From a practical perspective, Mrs Creasy reckons an early consequence of extreme weather is its impact on planting date – as seen over the last two seasons, when wet autumns pushed people to drill later and later. In line with this, she says Syngenta routinely assesses new varieties for their suitability to different drilling windows. “By doing this, we can help growers select appropriate varieties for their situations. SY Insitor, for example, is suited to later drilling scenarios: we wouldn’t recommend drilling it in early September. Gleam, on the other hand, has a wider window and with its high tillering capacity and tiller retention, it can deliver more equal yields under challenging conditions. “As a side note, we also examine the value of seed treatments in conjunction with varieties. Vibrance Duo, known for improving root development, has been shown to deliver its largest benefits in more marginal conditions, for example on light land which is more prone to spring drought.” Another breeder who is looking at treating seeds in order to boost establishment and root growth is Elsoms, which has been using priming as a method to control germination and vigour – in particular root crops such as parsnips, but it is also trialling the treatment on OSR. According to Elsoms’ break crop and cover crop manager, Jack Holgate: “The process controls the amount of moisture given to seeds through a series of exact calibrations. The seed is brought to a point where it has had just enough water to germinate, but not enough temperature (heat units). “Once drilled, the seed rapidly takes up the remaining moisture and heat required, resulting in an even and rapid germination. “It is used on crops where there is a naturally slow or erratic germination and is also used to overcome poor germination conditions – so it is

Nitrogen trait Last year breeder Limagrain UK introduced a new genetic characteristic, the N-Flex trait, to its OSR offering. Varieties with N-Flex have the ability to use nitrogen more efficiently, making them better able to withstand delayed or sub-optimal nitrogen applications. Will Charlton, Limagrain UK’s arable marketing manager, explains: “Soil structure and biology, along with weather conditions, lead to leaching and low solubilisation or mineralisation of nitrogen. Farm practices such as rotations and cover cropping also affect nitrogen levels, and of course we have legislative guidelines to adhere to with regards to how much can be used and where. “As breeders, our challenge was to look at how we could use genetics to cope with these ambiguities and introduce varieties that would be able to maintain high yields in lower than ideal nitrogen conditions by optimising every unit of available nitrogen. “Last year we launched the first of our OSR varieties to offer the N-Flex characteristic, LG Aviron, then Ambassador, and earlier this year, very high yielding hybrid oilseed rape LG Antigua was also confirmed to offer the N-Flex characteristic.” FG 80406

effectively an insurance policy for crops. Resulting seedlings tend to be stronger and more robust than non-primed seeds.” Fundamental to Bayer’s efforts to improve the resilience of oilseed rape-growing are completely untreated Dekalb breeding and selection trials run across a huge range of stress situations throughout Europe. “It’s easy to under-estimate the value of these rather than ‘new’ traits,” remarks Dekalb UK and Nordics breeding leader, Matthew Clarke. “But they are one of the most important jewels in the crown when it comes to delivering the sort of reliability that has always been our trademark. “We insist on testing all our emerging hybrids as well as parent lines without any crop protection support right thorough to their NL2 stage of development. And we deliberately do so in situations presenting particular disease, pest and other environmental challenges. “This allows us to only bring forward hybrids we are confident have the underlying genetic strength to perform consistently under increasingly unpredictable and often challenging conditions.”

Research projects for building better varieties The Defra-funded Wheat Genetic Improvement Network (WGIN) is a research platform for the delivery of tools, resources, bioinformatic information, and expertise for the identification of naturally occurring (useful) genetic variation in new traits. The ‘Breeders Toolkit’ is a mechanism developed in Designing Future Wheat (DFW) – a Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) funded programme facilitating transfer of genes/alleles of interest to new UK varieties.

Designing wheat of the future Heather Briggs spoke to Prof Kim Hammond-Kosack of Rothamsted Research and Dr Simon Griffiths from the John Innes Centre who are leading Defra-funded research on wheat genetics as part of a collaboration between plant scientists and commercial breeders. Timing of extreme weather events can affect crop susceptibility, particularly if drought conditions occur at the start of stem extension (stage 31) when

grain number is being determined, says Dr Griffiths (left). His team has looked at droughttolerant characteristics and generated a new

population from a cross between a UK spring wheat, Paragon, and Southern European winter wheat variety, Garcia. Dr Griffiths says: “We found quantitative trait loci (QTLs) were shared by both varieties, such

as those for known to control flowering and height, and discovered QTLs coming from Garcia which increased yield – particularly in UK drought years – and they also seem to delay stem extension by a few days.“ The mechanism for yield increase is still under investigation, but the later onset of stem extension means the crop is accumulating biomass for a little longer before committing to ear emergence.

Arable Prof Hammond-Kosack (right) notes that good crop anchorage and lodging resistance will also help crops withstand unusual weather events such as high winds and heavy rain, as it will help the canopy stand up. Genetic resources harbouring lodging-resistant lines were detected, and further analysis has been exploring above-ground and root anchorage traits which could be selected in future breeding programmes. “These traits are not yet captured by existing models, so we are screening directly for this trait and mapping genes and alleles controlling plant anchorage to the soil,” says Dr Griffiths. Resistance to take-all root

disease in wheat is also under the spotlight, and scientists are exploring whether specific introgressions confer re-rooting following take-all root infection. Prof Hammond-Kosack adds: “Keeping crops healthy and able to uptake nutrients has implications, on water quality too. When crops are affected with diseases such as take-all, nitrogen (N), goes down through the profile and can leach into water courses. “Other research is tackling traits where breeders struggle to make progress, such as slug resistance and aphids. “This will help breeders design wheat which will achieve good yields in difficult seasons as well as when conditions are favourable.” FG


Insights on addressing OSR challenges Weather over the past few years has been challenging oilseed rape crops with either too much water or not enough. Prof Steven Penfield (pictured) of the John Innes Centre offers insights on future research to help breeders – and ultimately growers – address these problems. Oilseed rape crops are at their most vulnerable to water logging during bolting and flowering, reveals Prof Penfield. This implies it is not so much the amount of waterlogging, as when it happens and the sensitivity of crop growth stage. Prof Penfield says: “In the UK, waterlogging tends to happen in December, which is not the most sensitive time, but as yet, few studies have looked at any effects on crop development and if they can recover from this. “These weather events may eventually affect quality and yield, but at this stage we do not yet know. “When fields are waterlogged roots lack oxygen, and the smaller roots die back. Once the ground dries up they may grow back, but we do not yet know, so research needs to establish not only the potential damage to the crop but also its potential for recovery.” On the opposite side of the question, dry soils at drilling can also mean the crop does not germinate and get away, he notes. However, in Australia, oilseed rape crops are often drilled into dusty soil, sit there until it rains and then germinate. The John Innes Centre is working with the University of Perth (Australia) to try and discover why this difference occurs. “We are working to find out whether some varieties are able to establish in soils that are a bit drier than normal.” Late autumn or early winter temperatures, especially those from late November up until the winter equinox, can also affect oilseed rape yields, he says. “Research collected in over 300 field trials across the UK since 2002 found that colder temperatures between these key dates can result in better oilseed rape yields.” This is the time the plant is making flowers for the following spring, and this may be why this period plays such an important role. These different temperatures govern seasonal information inside the plant such as when to flower, he told delegates. “We think there are tell-tale signs that the oilseed rape crop has received temperatures warmer than optimal during early winter. These can include a leafy canopy during flowering and seed set, reduced height at harvest, and purple colouration before bolting.”

Two new winter cereal varieties from one breeder’s stable now available for 2021

With both an award-winning winter barley and a high-quality soft Group 4 winter wheat suitable for distilling, Senova’s new additions to the AHDB RL for 2021/22 look rather promising. Winter barley achieves early success Senova’s new Danish-bred winter barley, Bordeaux, is a conventional two-row feed variety with a UK-wide recommendation and an awardwinning track record.

Rivalling the six-row hybrids for yield, Bordeaux joined the latest AHDB Recommended List with a yield of 106, a specific weight of 69.9kg/hl and low screenings losses. As such, Bordeaux offers better grain quality and yield performance

than most other winter barleys, along with the early maturity that eases any harvesting bottlenecks. At 86cm tall, it has a 7 for lodging resistance. It is also resistant to barley yellow mosaic virus and has ratings of 6 for both mildew and brown rust. There’s plenty of early interest in Bordeaux, reflecting the preference that growers have for varieties that perform well regardless of the season, says Senova’s commercial director Jeremy Taylor (pictured right). “There have always been commercial reasons behind the popularity of conventional over hybrid varieties,” he comments. “With the yield gap closing between them, now there are compelling agronomic reasons, too.” Already creating early headlines for its success in the annual YEN competition organised by ADAS, Bordeaux was the variety that won Scottish grower David Bell a gold award for achieving 84 per cent of its

yield potential. After a challenging start in a very wet autumn, his 2020 crop yielded 11.9t/ha out of a theoretical 14.1t/ha, beating some of the UK’s best wheat crops. The 4ha field of Bordeaux also went on to give the best margin on the farm in St Andrews, Fife, coming in at just over £1,300/ha excluding operations. As a mixed farmer, Mr Bell looks for the combination of good specific weight and palatability with high yields, when he considers winter barley variety choices. He is growing Bordeaux again this year on a larger scale and hopes to repeat his success, with another YEN entry planned. Bordeaux joins Senova’s existing winter barley, Valerie, in the market and continues the company’s tradition of marketing barley varieties that combine high yields with good grain quality.

Arable Winter wheat’s arrival sets new distilling standards Swallow, the new soft Group 4 winter wheat from Senova which sets the highest standards for distilling, is being tipped for success in the north. Added to the AHDB Recommended List 2021/22 at the end of last year, Swallow combines the end market appeal of a very high alcohol yield and low viscosity – two prerequisites for the distilling sector – with a strong set of agronomic characteristics.

Swallow combines the end market appeal of a very high alcohol yield and low viscosity – two prerequisites for the distilling sector. That will make it attractive to growers too, says Mr Taylor, who highlights Swallow’s early maturity and short, very stiff straw – both of which are important in the north of England and Scotland, where there is a longer growing season. With a yield of 102, good grain quality and a septoria score of 5.7, Swallow also meets the other standards expected by soft wheat growers, outperforming the current variety favourites on key characteristics, he adds. “While the distilling market has particular requirements in terms of alcohol yield from each tonne of grain, it does not pay a premium for the highest alcohol yield,” notes Mr Taylor. “So even though Swallow has achieved a ‘Good’ rating for distilling from independent evaluation and is expected to have a significant impact on the grain distilling market, it has to have farmers behind it.” As such, Swallow’s high yield, good all-round disease resistance and earliness are bound to appeal, while its grain quality and straw characteristics bring further benefits. Bred by John Blackman and being marketed by Senova, Swallow has a septoria score of 5.7, above that of other popular distilling choices. However, Mr Blackman’s experience suggests this might not be representative given its yield in untreated trials, where the variety remained much cleaner than its rating indicates. A high starch content, Hagberg of 245 and specific weight of 76.3kg/

hl are complemented by a superb lodging resistance (+PGR) score of 9 [-PGR 8], a height of 78cm (compared to over 90cm for Skyscraper) and a 6 for both yellow rust and brown rust resistance. A 0 for ripening makes Swallow one of the earliest varieties to mature. Its consistency of performance across harvest years and trials sites also stands out, making it a promising new introduction for an important market segment, believes Mr Taylor. Swallow joins Senova’s popular hard Group 4 winter wheat, Costello, on the latest Recommended List. Seed for both Bordeaux winter barley and Swallow winter wheat will be available for autumn 2021 plantings. FG

Highest HEAR prices for a decade With opportunities to earn over £500/t at harvest 2022, HEAR oilseed rape prices haven’t been this high for many years, according to Premium Crops’ commercial director, Chris Spedding.

A strong baseline price for ‘00’ oilseed rape is the underlying cause, boosted by HEAR premiums of up to £115/mt. Growing HEAR is just the same as growing conventional oilseed rape, with the same agronomy, the same yield potential and the same range of contract options. The difference is that HEAR offers a significant premium over the ‘00’ commodity price. While the ‘00’ oilseed rape acreage has declined in recent years, due in the main to cabbage stem flea beetle, those growers who have stuck with the crop, and those who are returning this autumn, have an ideal opportunity to ‘lock in’ these high prices right from the start by choosing a HEAR contract. Unlike many seed suppliers or grain traders, by supplying and buying back your crop, Premium Crops has a vested interest in seeing its HEAR growers succeed. To that end, all of its HEAR contracts are backed by a full agronomic support package, with regular updates and two company agronomists on hand to provide specific advice. To provide an even greater

insight into how all of their key added value crops perform, Premium Crops has also established a number of Monitor Farms which can be found online by visiting www. premiumcrops.com and choosing ‘Monitor Farms’ from the menu. Premium Crops has also recently joined the Oilseed YEN (Yield Evaluation Network) hosted by RSK ADAS Ltd. The YEN connects agricultural organisations and farmers who are striving to improve crop performance and networks are open to any interested individual or organisation – commercial, academic or other. Until recently, the Oilseed YEN was concentrated on ‘00’ oilseed rape and, with Premium Crops sponsorship, the network has expanded to include linseed and HEAR. As a special offer for harvest 2022, Premium Crops is offering at least a 50 per cent discount for YEN membership to any farmers growing HEAR or linseed under one of its buy-back contracts.

Clubroot variety offers TuYV and pod shatter resistance

For oilseed rape growers in clubroot infected areas looking for high yields, and to protect themselves against turnip yellows virus (TuYV) and pod shatter, LG Anarion is the one variety to offer this. LG Anarion is the first clubroot resistant variety to offer high yields, which is secured by a range of valuable genetic traits including TuYV, pod shatter and RLM 7 resistance, and is available to UK growers for the coming season. “This is a really exciting development for growers of oilseed rape in clubroot infected areas,” says Will Charlton, Limagrain’s arable marketing manager. “Possession of these traits provides much needed on-farm security to growers who are looking to improve their profits from oilseed rape, in areas

that have, until now, been challenging as a result of clubroot.” Clubroot typically causes losses of 0.3t/ha for every 10 per cent of plants affected. The disease is becoming far more widespread across the UK, spreading into areas such as Somerset and Derbyshire, and is no longer confined to the wetter regions such as the north-west. Tighter rotations, low soil pH, warmer, wetter winters and poor OSR volunteer control have all contributed to these increasing levels of infection. As the first clubroot-resistant variety to offer (TuYV), pod shatter

and RLM 7 resistance, LG Anarion is an exciting prospect for this season offering both high yields and yield security, says Liam Wilkinson, Limagrain’s arable technical officer. “In our UK breeding trials, we saw that LG Anarion showed an 11 per cent yield increase over our current clubroot variety, Alasco, and 5 per cent over other leading club root varieties – representing a significant improvement and further closing of the yield gap associated with clubroot resistance. We’ve also seen strong performance in independent trials. “We know that TuYV can knock yields by as much as 30 per cent and infection is difficult to prevent with foliar insecticides alone. Limagrain was the first to introduce TuYV resistance with the variety Amalie in 2014, and the trait is now a staple of our high-yielding hybrids,” comments Mr Wilkinson. “LG Anarion also offers pod shatter resistance; a trait which has recently had its importance acknowledged by the AHDB with its inclusion on the Recommended List. Pod shatter resistance can help secure yields and

prevent untimely seed losses if there is inclement weather around harvest.” It also protects from losses during harvest (as the header hits the crop), as well as reducing the number of volunteers in the following crop. Other traits stacked into LG Anarion include the RLM7 phoma resistance gene, which provides stable resistance scores of 7 or 8; Limagrain does not offer varieties with a light leaf spot score of below 6. Agronomically, there is much to like about LG Anarion, notes Mr Wilkinson. “It offers good disease resistance, with our breeding data suggesting ratings of 6 for light leaf spot, 6+ for phoma and a good tolerance to verticillium. It has early-mid flowering and maturity, and good ratings for stem stiffness and lodging. “The variety has very strong autumn dynamic growth with fast biomass accumulation and then sits in the winter, so it does not get too ahead of itself. It exhibits very good winter hardiness, which means it can cope with more challenging winter conditions.” FG

It’s important that growers are alert to the threat that clubroot poses and are in a position to counter it as best as possible by identifying areas at most risk and targeting them with integrated cultural control strategies, says Agrii seed specialist, David Leaper (pictured). Varietal resistance to clubroot should only be used as one element of the management programme, he says. “All clubroot-resistant varieties share the same source of resistance so we should not over rely on it.” For sites at risk of clubroot, key elements of cultural control should encompass: • Growing OSR no more than one in four years • Remedying any soil compaction or drainage problems • Checking soil pH regularly across all fields • Avoiding early winter rape sowing • Correcting boron deficiencies • Testing soils for clubroot in unaffected fields • Minimising soil movement on farm equipment.

Agreement signed to develop hybrid wheat seeds for European markets The new partnership between RAGT and Bayer aims to provide farmers with new high-potential wheat varieties, enhancing sustainable agricultural practices. RAGT and Bayer have entered an exclusive collaboration to jointly develop state-of-the-art hybrid wheat varieties. The two companies will pool their strengths by combining Europe’s leading soft wheat genetics with access to the latest breeding methodologies, high-performing seed production systems and advanced digital solutions. Wheat is the most widely grown food crop in the world. In the European Union and the United Kingdom alone, more than 25 million hectares are under yearly cultivation. Wheat provides about 20 per cent of the proteins consumed in the world. Securing the wheat harvests through hybrid wheat production systems that help increase yield and robustness of the crop will help meet the expected increase in food consumption to feed a growing world population. Through a combination of Bayer’s position in wheat crop protection, expertise in seed production systems and its front-running digital solutions in agriculture, and RAGT’s position as a leading cereal seed company in Europe with constant varietal seed innovations, both companies intend to advance the development of hybrid wheat technology and provide an innovative wheat growing system. “Hybrid wheat offers farmers the opportunity to meet the challenges of climate change while achieving higher productivity in sustainable cropping systems,” said Bob Reiter, head of research and development at the Crop Science division of Bayer. “We are delighted to partner with RAGT to bring wheat farmers new solutions that support their efforts to produce a quality wheat crop.” Bruno Tremblay, regional head of Europe, Middle East and Africa for the Bayer Crop Science division, confirmed: “Our agreement with RAGT kicks off another exciting collaboration of two historical partners with the complimentary innovation and digital capabilities needed to unlock the potential of the

agronomic performance in wheat. Together, we will bring an industryleading hybrid wheat production system to our growers in Europe.

This will also contribute to a more self-sufficient European food and feed production system.” Laurent Guerreiro, general

Stable situation shows benefit of resistance management approach Further evidence of the effectiveness of established azoles and SDHIs against septoria comes from the latest Europe-wide resistance monitoring from Bayer. AHDB resistance monitoring indicated that azoles have stabilised over the last few years and that view is reflected in Bayer’s results. The company’s head of resistance monitoring, Dr Andreas Mehl, told delegates at a recent online workshop that, although septoria’s sensitivity to azoles doesn’t match that of SDHIs, the idea that azoles are ‘doing nothing’ is incorrect and they are still effective partners for SDHIs.

it doesn’t mean resistance. What really matters is how far it has shifted from the baseline. A resistance factor is the deviation away from key reference isolates – effectively the ‘baseline’. Dr Mehl would worry if resistance factors exceeded 30 – meaning the EC50 value was 30 times that of the reference isolates in the test. Resistance factor scores for bixafen from 2018 and 2020 show the shift has

The yellow rust issues of 2020 were probably a combination of environmental factors, such as weather and delayed drilling date.

With concerns over SDHI resistance, he acknowledged there has been a slight shift in sensitivity but it isn’t reflected across the range. He pointed out that resistance factor scores for DMI prothioconazole, and SDHIs bixafen and fluopyram, are broadly unchanged since his last visit to the UK a few years back. “Bixafen was the first second generation SDHI. In 2018, we only found one isolate with a EC50 > 1 mg/l, from Leinster, Ireland. By 2020, this increased to four, but only one from the UK.” He sees resistance factors he feels are more important when it comes to calculating sensitivity shifts and Dr Mehl is reasonably relaxed at the current time. He points out that a shift in EC50 shows a shift in sensitivity, but

been small. “In 2020 resistance factor scores for the UK ranged from 3–26. That is higher than in 2018, but still below the 30 threshold.” It is a similar picture throughout Europe. Between 2018 and 2020 the company tested annually over 100 samples and several hundred isolates with the vast majority of results showing resistance factors well within the 30 threshold. Unlike the UK situation, some ‘outliers’ were found in Ireland, Germany and the Netherlands. But Dr Mehl attributes this to a range of factors and isn’t alarmed. “When we look at the small number of results where bixafen has a ppm of 2.0 or above, leading to a high resistance factor score, these strains

typically have a fitness penalty. Tough strains we see in the lab struggle to thrive when exposed to the elements and plant defence mechanisms.”

Individual scores not the whole picture Furthermore, he points out actives are not applied as straights and individual active resistance factor scores are not the whole picture. “It’s why we must use SDHIs with effective partners and both at an appropriate dose,” he adds. While UK results showed resistance factor scores in the 20s with bixafen, these ranged from 2–13 with fluopyram. “We still see the same pattern, with higher scores for Ireland than the UK, but the range is much lower. In the Netherlands where we see some particularly high resistance factor scores for bixafen, with fluopyram they range from 4–9. It confirms incomplete cross-resistance for the two.” With azole sensitivity stabilising he still sees prothioconazole as an excellent partner for SDHIs. For 2020, UK EC50 values actually fell slightly compared to the two previous seasons but he is cautious about suggesting septoria is becoming any more sensitive to prothioconazole. “We see these shifts and backshifts, which is why resistance monitoring has to be taken over several seasons. But it clearly demonstrates that prothioconazole is stable right now.” Despite an improved picture for

many azoles, Dr Mehl doesn’t want to see any let-up in resistance strategies. He says the latest data show good resistance strategies based on appropriate dose of an effective partner are effective. That view is reinforced by recent research looking at cross-resistance patterns between azole groups, using Swedish and Danish septoria populations. “We see a very variable incomplete cross resistance pattern between azoles based on their classification. “Mefentrifluconazole is a very strong septoria product but its performance varies depending on which azole you partner with. Where mefentrifluconazole is partnered with difenconazole, we see a slight fall in efficacy compared to mefentrifluconazole with prothioconazole. This is because difenconazole is an isomer of mefentrifluconazole and too closely related. It might sound a little odd, but prothioconazole helps mefentrifluconazole and vice-versa.” He also de-bunked the idea that there has been a shift with yellow rust. He acknowledges that the disease was difficult to control in 2020, but stresses there was no evidence in azole or SDHI sensitivity. “The yellow rust issues of 2020 were probably a combination of environmental factors such as weather and delayed drilling date. “More aggressive races may also be playing a part, but a number of actives offer good protection against the disease. When it comes to control, timing is still the critical factor – it is important not to let spray intervals get stretched beyond fungicide control.”

Isoflucypram in a class of its own There’s more good news on the fungicide stewardship front with the arrival of Iblon (isoflucypram), a new class of SDHI chemistry with unique binding properties. This is due a unique N-cyclopropyl ring at of its chemical structure. Iblon is expected for use next season and Dr Mehl says its uniqueness means it sits separately to bixafen and fluopyram, making it a good partner for either. “It is more intrinsic than bixafen and we see significant sensitivity with isoflucypram to some mutations, with reduced sensitivity to pyrazole carboxamide SDHIs, including bixafen. Fluopyram is also effective against strains showing reduced sensitivity to bixafen, so isoflucypram is in between both when it comes to impact on mutations and cross resistance patterns,” he concludes.

Fungicide performance data for new wheat fungicide released AHDB has released fungicide performance data for the recently authorised wheat product – Univoq. Based on a new mode of action, Univoq will help protect the long-term efficacy of key wheat fungicides and provide a valuable option for in-season disease control. The broad-spectrum fungicide closely matches leading SDHI/azole combinations in its activity against major foliar wheat diseases. ADAS’ Jonathan Blake, who works on AHDB-funded fungicide performance trials, said: “We test products under code so we can release the independent performance data once UK approval has been granted. “Univoq has performed well in trials. Its novel mode of action means it adds value – not just in terms of its own efficacy, but in its ability to protect other chemistry.” Authorised for use in wheat (latest application timing growth stage 69), Univoq from Corteva Agriscience contains fenpicoxamid in mixture with the established active prothioconazole. Fenpicoxamid (also referred to as Inatreq) is a quinone inside inhibitor (QiI) – a new mode of action for cereal disease management. This means it targets pathogens in a different way to azoles, SDHIs and strobilurins. It could help improve the effective life of SDHIs and azoles, through its use in mixtures and in alternation in wheat fungicide programmes. At present, only one QiI treatment is permitted across the

programme. Fungicide performance trials (2018–20) tested the product’s activity against Septoria tritici, yellow rust and brown rust. On septoria, Univoq delivered a similar level of disease control to the leading SDHI/azole mixture (Revystar XE). Both these products appeared more effective than other leading mixture combinations when compared at the same percentage of label dose. As with other products, higher application rates were needed when applied in curative, instead of protectant, situations. On yellow rust, Univoq was more active than prothioconazole (in Proline275) alone, indicating that the fenpicoxamid component adds activity. It also provided a similar level of control to the azole epoxiconazole (which will be withdrawn by the end of the year) and the SDHI/azole mixture Elatus Era.   On brown rust, Univoq also showed a higher level of activity than prothioconazole alone. Comparisons with other mixture products indicated that Univoq performed similarly on brown rust to Ascra Xpro, providing very good levels of control when used at 50 per cent label rate and higher.  For further information, including all fungicide performance graphs that include Univoq, visit ahdb.org.uk/ fungicide-performance FG

Authoritative new guide helps OSR growers make the most of early drilling Bringing together the latest intelligence from across the industry, to help oilseed rape growers make the most of early August drilling, is an authoritative 20-page guide published this summer. Produced jointly by crop production and establishment specialists, Bayer and Opico, with experts from ADAS, NIAB and Wright Solutions, the new guide provides a wealth of practical advice for early drillers alongside the most important establishment essentials. Sowing in the first two weeks of August has been invaluable in allowing many crops to survive cabbage stem flea beetle grazing in recent years, it observes. But moving drilling forward from its main mid-late August window brings with it a number of challenges that need to be addressed to make the most of this opportunity. Chief amongst these is the danger of increased CSFB larval burdens in the spring. While reducing the pressure from phoma,

earlier drilling is also recognised as adding to risks from light leaf spot, clubroot, and possibly also verticillium and turnip yellows virus. At the same time, the Guide points to the increased agronomic pressure presented by overly-large canopies susceptible to pre-mature stem extension in mild winters and serious damage from frost and snow if conditions turn cold. Higher lodging risk is highlighted as a particular consideration too; especially where a combination of higher seed rates and better establishment results in dense stands of thinnerstemmed plants.

Short turnaround time In addition, of course, sowing in early August means very little time from harvesting the previous

crop, with obvious implications for previous cropping, straw management, grass weed control and correcting any soil structural problems. And machinery and workload issues at the peak of cereal harvest for most cannot been ignored either. To make the most of the valuable opportunities earlier OSR drilling brings while avoiding its main pitfalls, The Guide to Early OSR Drilling identifies a number of important rotational, varietal, machinery and management

priorities in a series of easy-toread sections. Foremost amongst these are: Key rotational priorities OSR should never be sown if there is insufficient moisture in the seeding zone or soil structure is compromised • Soil structural issues need to be

corrected ahead of the crop in the rotation wherever possible, and ground with a history of clubroot problems should be avoided Winter barley offers the best entry, with winter oats, winter wheat and spring barley also suitable providing their maturity is not delayed by genetics or management Leaving long cereal stubbles will ensure the most rapid combining and effective straw chopping and spreading while providing OSR with a good micro-climate for establishment Sowing with companion crops can improve establishment, and brassica-containing cover crops sown later in nearby fields may be useful in ‘trapping’ migrating CSFB.

Key variety priorities As well as establishing vigorously, varieties should be rapid in their development to get crops away but not so fast that they produce excessivelyforward pre-winter canopies • Varieties that are earlier or faster in their spring regrowth can provide valuable extra tolerance to higher levels of CSFB larvae • First-class standing power based on the best combination of stem stiffness and lodging resistance is more essential than ever • Strong light leaf spot resistance is also crucial, combined with good resistance to verticillium where possible • Turnip yellows virus resistance can be a useful extra safeguard, although only in addition to the more important priorities.

Key machinery priorities Single pass establishment is essential, with speed balanced by sufficient care and precision in seed placement in particular • Where the soil is in good enough condition with an unrestricted structure for root penetration and drainage, no-till drilling should be preferred • Alternatively, structural concerns and any harvest



trafficking damage can be tackled with some low disturbance metal at depth as part of a tailored seeding regime Seed should always be sown through coulters into soil re-consolidated after any disturbance to provide good depth control and seed-to-soil contact Machines should be able to cope with long stubbles and trash; apply fertiliser with the seed; and, ideally, also be able to sow companion crops and apply slug pellets.

Key management priorities Seed rates leading to higherthan-ideal plant populations should be avoided to ensure the most productive canopies and stems with the least susceptibility to CSFB larval damage • The reduced threat from phoma should give more flexibility to delay autumn fungicide treatment, targeting it more effectively against the higher light leaf spot risk • An early autumn application of metconazole may be needed to regulate the growth of crops that are particularly forward – especially if they are also very thick • Relatively large canopies coming out of the winter put the onus on careful spring N management to Green Area Index (GAI) and effective plant growth regulation • Levels of CSFB larvae can be reduced by sheep grazing or mechanical defoliation but this must be neither too intense nor too close to stem extension to avoid compromising yields.

“Making the new Guide available as widely as possible to growers and their advisers across the country this summer will, we very much hope, help them to take full advantage of the particularly good prospects for OSR in the coming season with the least risk,” comments Bayer OSR campaign manager, Lizzie CarrArcher (pictured). “Copies can be obtained free-of-charge from both ourselves and Opico.” FG July 2021 www.farmersguide.co.uk 25

Bigger seed brings better crops The NAAC tested the theory that bigger seed produces better establishment, and this is what it found.. When mobile seed processors visit farms to do their work, sometimes the farmer has plenty of ‘as grown’ seed available and sometimes hardly enough to do the job. The amount of potential seed available is therefore a key factor in setting up the seed cleaner to do a good job. Mobile seed processors have long believed that bigger, denser seed will produce better established crops. One of the key advantages of cleaning your own seed is that you can ask for the seed to be dressed ‘hard’. This means a higher percentage of screenings is removed from the seed. This all sounds like common sense, but is it based on good science? NAAC mobile seed processors decided in spring 2021 to scientifically test the theory that bigger seed produces a better establishment. Greenhouse trials were carried

out on winter wheat and spring barley by the independent trials company, SGS. Samples were sieved to separate them in to four fractions for each crop type. The fractions were tested for germination and thousand grain weight at the start. These fractions were then planted to monitor the growth obtained over a number of weeks. Firstly, it was found that higher thousand grain weight (TGW) seed is naturally higher in germination. When seed is cleaned, the smaller, lower TGW seeds are removed, thereby raising the germination of the sample overall. The smallest seed fraction was consistently behind the other fractions in terms of emergence and plant size, and it ended up with approximately 60 per cent fewer plants established with winter wheat and 20 per cent fewer spring barley plants.

The biggest seed fractions produced more vigorous, bigger plants, with better root and leaf growth and so would be better able to withstand drought in the field. So, a few key points to consider when farm saving seed are: • Plan to grow enough seed for what you need plus 20–50 per cent if possible. This allows the mobile seed processor flexibility and the ability to do the best job possible. Consider growing your seed crop on some of your best land which will give you a higher thousand grain weight sample • Consider sowing your seed crops on more than one field to spread the risk, and grow them as a first cereal where possible to reduce the risk of poor-quality seed due to diseases such as take-all • Take extra care when setting up

your combine not to damage the seed. Mechanically damaged grains usually do not grow, or produce poor quality seedlings. Patience pays off with growing seed, but combine seed crops as soon as you can in case the weather turns wet and spoils the crop for use as seed If drying seed, use ambient air if possible. High temperature drying can damage germination and vigour, so make sure your grain drier is well maintained. Set the temperature on the machine according to the variety setting in the manual to protect your seed Get a germination and possibly a vigour test done well in advance of processing to see how well the seed grows and give yourself choice in which seed batch to use.

Collaboration aims to enhance data integration for farmers The transfer, sharing and analysis of digital data is to become faster and more efficient through a collaboration between Hutchinsons and Bayer. Hutchinsons Omnia and Bayer FieldView users will be able to synchronise data between the two systems, allowing growers to increase knowledge and improve decision making on their farms. Many farmers cite the lack of communication between precision platforms as hampering the ability in accessing and evaluating data, and ultimately strategic and tactical farm management decisions. This collaboration will allow growers to do more with the data they are already generating – not only improving crop management for optimised yield and returns, but also shaping farm strategy for a more sustainable business. Bayer’s Max Dafforn says the collaboration is logical given the synergies between the two platforms. “Omnia’s precision agronomy tools combined with FieldView’s data capture makes the analysis of variable rate applications quicker and more effective. Effectively users will have streamlined data collection and the ability to overlay yield data with variable rate application information quickly and accurately. Farmers will be able to utilise their data to generate Cost of Production maps within Omnia and make better farm management decisions.” Oliver Wood (left) of Hutchinsons believes the data shared between the two systems will help growers optimise decision making and focus on key areas of a farm or field. “Cloud-syncing Omnia and FieldView data will help growers visualise and analyse data more effectively, giving new insights on crop management strategies and operation effectiveness. This will help growers improve poor performing field areas, or identify alternative uses.” Once the linkage between the two platforms is in place, field boundaries will be synchronised between the two platforms, eliminating the need for manual file transfer or duplicated data entry. Yield data, captured real-time in FieldView, will import automatically into Omnia. Omnia users have been able to trial FieldView from the beginning of June, providing sufficient time for the setup

and familiarisation with the platform to enable data flow for harvest 2021. One enterprise already benefitting from the collaboration is G H Hoyles Ltd of Long Sutton, Lincs. The business was an early adopter of the Omnia platform, and last season started trialling Climate FieldView. The entire farm was mapped using Omnia, including non-cropped areas, and assistant farm manager Henry

Richardson uses it for variable rate seed and fertiliser plans, and mapping PCN areas which is partly managed by variety and increased fertiliser rates. He sees Omnia as seamless. “The Plant Vision scanner works perfectly with our sprayer, allowing us to detect changes in biomass and highlight potential problem areas. We also use these NDVI images to create fertiliser plans in Omnia. Likewise, the Connect App links up perfectly with the drill to plan and implement variable rate drilling. “Simplified data sharing between Omnia and FieldView will allow us

Barley set to deliver much more in the future New barley varieties can already add significantly to diversity of cropping and deliver real management advantages and margin gains, but there’s much more to come, say KWS. Investment in barley breeding is now delivering significantly higher yields than achievable from the crop just a few short years ago, reckons Dr Kirsty Richards of KWS. With a strong pipeline of new varieties now coming through, the crop offers UK growers an increasing number of rotational and financial advantages, she believes. “We’re at a point where the leading two-row varieties are now offering yields comparable to those achieved by the best six-rows with improved agronomic features as well. “Get your management and variety choice right, and there’s no reason why a conventional two-row barley cannot now be a more profitable cropping option than a second wheat. “Variable costs can be 75 per cent of wheat plus barley straw has a higher sale value than wheat which, at about £65/t baled ex-field can add an extra £180/ha to above the sale price of grain.

Not only was it the highest yielding two-row on the list, it was also producing yields equivalent to many six-row hybrid varieties.

“Winter barley is often the first crop to be harvested, helping to spread the summer workload and make way for cultivations so for many there is no better entry for oilseed rape. “In addition, fungicide timings are typically a week earlier than wheat, helping to spread the sprayer workload and reduce the pressure on wheat application timings.”

Increased yields KWS Tardis did create a bit of a stir when it was added to the 2021/22 RL at the end of last

year, she admits. “Not only was it the highest yielding two-row on the list, it was also producing yields equivalent to many six-row hybrid varieties. “At 106 per cent of control, it’s the highest yielding two-row barley by some margin but it’s only 1 per cent behind the highest yielding six rows and hybrids. “It absolutely flies in the East, being beaten by just one hybrid six-row variety on the entire RL and then only by 1 per cent.” In the field, KWS Tardis is very vigorous – getting out of the blocks quickly with good standing power being the only variety on the RL with just 1 per cent lodging without PGR, she points out. “Overall, its resistance to lodging score is 8 which plays a key role in its levels of performance on heavier soils, which is 110 per cent of control in the RL, where it outyields everything bar two hybrids. “Agronomically, it’s a medium height variety at 92cm with a really strong disease package including a 7 for rynchosporium resistance and a 5 for net blotch, plus it’s BYMV resistant. “KWS Tardis follows a line of two-row barleys that have been steadily pushing yields higher in recent years, with varieties like KWS Cassia and KWS Orwell proving very popular with growers. “With over 10 years’ service under its belt, KWS Cassia has served feed barley growers well, but many realise the newer varieties can deliver so much more.”

New BYDV-tolerant high yielder One of the most exciting of the new developments is the introduction of KWS Feeris, Dr Richards says. “KWS Feeris is a conventional six-row winter barley that brings BYDV tolerance to the market

in a realistic package. “It’s a variety suited to all regions of the UK. Like other six-row barleys, KWS Feeris has excellent yield potential but really stands out in the West. “It has a good all-round disease package including 7 for rhynchosporium and 8 for net blotch, coupled to BYMV resistance and BYDV tolerance. KWS Feeris is reasonably tall-strawed at 94cm but a good 5–10cm shorter than commercial hybrid 6-rows. “It’s a great variety in itself but, when coupled with the added benefit of BYDV tolerance, it provides excellent risk management for barley growers in high pressure hotspots and those looking to push drilling as early as possible.”

High-yielding Hawking For growers preferring to stick with two-row varieties, RL-listed KWS Hawking is another strong option, Dr Richards points out. “It’s an ultra-reliable high-yielding low-risk variety, with strong straw and no agronomic weaknesses. “At 103 per cent of control in the 2021/22 RL, it’s a variety recommended for the whole of the UK, but experience has shown it’s at its best in the East where it has delivered 105 per cent of control in KWS trials. “Not only does it deliver on straw strength over KWS Gimlet, it has better lodging resistance than LG Mountain and Jordan, and at a score of 5, better mildew than KWS Orwell.” An added benefit is that KWS Hawking is an earlier maturing type, she explains. “In our own KWS UK trials for the past two seasons, the variety has been significantly ahead of its stablemates by reaching ear emergence in May. “KWS Hawking is a great example of a modern, low risk variety that growers can rely on and I’m confident we’re going see much more of these types of variety in the future.” FG

Survey to build in-depth understanding of ryegrass problem Bayer and NIAB are working together to understand the potential threat from Italian ryegrass to UK arable farmers. This summer, they are asking farmers to contribute to the largest ryegrass survey ever conducted in the UK. Sampling and resistance testing is a key part of the survey, but researchers are keen to hear from farmers in the field. “We want to understand the geographic spread as well as the resistance status of the most difficult populations,” says John Cussans of NIAB (right). “Even if it is a minor problem, or perhaps has just appeared on farm, we want to hear from you.

All of this is valuable information to build up a picture of the ryegrass situation.” Previous Bayer research published in 2019 focused on traditional ryegrass hotspots in Kent, Essex and South Yorkshire. It found a small number of populations with resistance to key pre-emergence actives. Researchers were looking for the hardest-to-control ryegrass, so the

results weren’t a shock but should be treated as an early warning. “Anecdotally, the weed is becoming more of a problem, but we’ve lacked detail and information about its overall resistance status. Ryegrass seems to have an innate capacity to develop resistance, so we need to be proactive to prevent more serious problems. According to Mr Cussans, farmers need to be aware that Italian ryegrass is slightly harder to manage than blackgrass. “Cultural control methods such

as delayed drilling and spring cropping help, but they don’t make quite as much of a difference compared to black-grass. More cultural and chemical methods need to be stacked together to ensure durable control.” Although it is a cause for concern, the survey is part of an action plan from Bayer to make sure farmers are aware of ryegrass and know about the tools to control it. “The headline reports of resistance to flufenacet and pendimethalin were understandably worrying but when you dig down, there are reasons for optimism,” says Lindy Blanchard of Bayer. “When the actives were used in mixes and co-forms, they still provided control. Added to that we now have new actives such as Proclus (aclonifen).” Launched last autumn, Proclus has provided good control of ryegrass in its first season in mixtures with Liberator. The task for farmers is to take the opportunity to use a highly effective pre-em in tandem with cultural controls to drive down weed populations. “The survey should give us more insight into which situations farmers are having success controlling ryegrass and where they struggle. This might give us some clues about how to tweak the methods we’ve been using against black-grass to be more effective against Italian ryegrass.” To take part in the survey visit https://cropscience.bayer.co.uk/italianryegrass-seed-test-sampling/ FG

Pod sealants offer pea growers excellent return on investment Peas and beans offer a good alternative protein source to soya in feed rations, but they can be a management-heavy crop that needs particular attention on the run-up to harvest, where yield and quality losses can be significant. With high crop prices and challenging weather expected on the run-up to harvest this season, it is the pod sealants that can offer a significant return on investment of 3.5:1 says Hutchinsons agronomist Sam Hugill (pictured). An application of ZipPod is his product of choice, and with crop prices for field peas currently at £230/t, will feature in his agronomy programmes. Mr Hugill provides agronomic advice on more than 600ha of combinable field peas and beans across North Yorkshire, produced for the animal feed and human

consumption markets. “For peas grown for human consumption, appearance is critical, so we are looking to minimise the risk of pea bleaching,” he says. “This can be achieved by applying an appropriately timed quality pod sealant. My product of choice is ZipPod, which can reduce bleaching by as much as 15 per cent as well as reduce pod splitting by 20 per cent. “Application timing of the pod sealant is critical so we look to go in eight weeks before harvest,” he says. “Some growers prefer to go in 10 weeks before harvest and others look to go in four weeks prior to

harvest, along with glyphosate. ZipPod must be added to a tank mix last in order to avoid potential lock-up. The advantage of ZipPod is that it offers excellent timing flexibility.” Mr Hugill adds that ZipPod should be applied at a rate of 1-litre/ ha in 150-litre/ha of water. However, in some thick canopy crops, water volumes must be increased but so too must the rate of ZipPod. “It’s important to use a flat fan nozzle on the sprayer line to ensure the liquid goes straight down, penetrating the canopy all the way to the bottom pods. Sprayer forward speed should be about 12kph and boom height needs to be about 50cm above the canopy.” Pod sealant application timing is as important as the active ingredient says Mr Hugill. The optimum timing is GS 80–88 unless there is any sign of pod colour fading, in which case applying it as soon as possible is critical. And

always be aware of the weather, so if it looks like its heading for a wet period, get it on early. “The advantage of ZipPod is that it acts like a flexible silicon so pods can still grow after application,” he says. “ZipPod has the advantage of working well on crops which suffer from early senescence as well as those on heavier, more waterretentive soils where growth is lush and yields tend to be higher. On lower yielding areas, applying the pod sealant protects crops from pod splitting, while allowing other parts of the field to continue growing.” Mr Hugill says that a well timed and quality pod sealant can help to minimise crop losses at harvest of up to 0.3t/ha. Peas also offer a very good entry to first wheat, but they are a more weather-dependent crop that needs more management to help reach the full yield and quality potential. FG

There is a growing range of results supporting the use of spring NPKS fertilisers over separate autumn P and K applications from both formal trials and practical farm scenarios, Dr Awan says. “Work carried out at the Royal Agricultural University (RAU) in Cirencester, for example, has shown wheat yield responses of 1t/ha with spring-applied CF Heartland Sulphur (24-8-8 + 8SO3) compared to when P and K were applied in the autumn. “In most situations you would probably use a conventional Nitrogen source such as Nitram (34.5 per cent N) or a true granular NS compound alongside the NPKS fertiliser in the spring, but it all depends on individual requirements.

Applying P and K in the spring through an NPKS true granular compound can not only improve crop uptake of nitrogen, it can also help protect plants against increasingly common early summer droughts. Whilst conventional thinking has made autumn the most popular time to address P and K shortfalls through the applications of straights, there’s a growing body of evidence suggesting this is far from ideal in many situations, says CF Fertilisers’ head of agronomy Dr Sajjad Awan (pictured). Not only could the practice lead to lower Nitrogen Fertiliser Use Efficiency (NfUE), reduced plant growth in the spring and ultimately poorer final yields, there could also be environmental implications in certain conditions, he believes. “P and K are traditionally applied in the autumn but many trials have shown that the timing of these applications is critical to yields, particularly on soils with P and K indices of one and above. “Both P and K are essential in maximising nitrogen utilisation so ensuring they are easily accessible to plants at a time they have their biggest requirement for nitrogen in order to drive growth, has to be the key priority. “Applying P and K in the spring so these vital elements are used quickly as crops are growing is

potentially a better approach than leaving them in cold soils over the winter at the mercy of the weather. “Furthermore, springapplied true granular NPKS compounds ensure P and K are available alongside both nitrogen and sulphur at the same time so all four nutrients can work together to promote growth.”

Significant benefits But meeting crop nutrient requirements in this way has significant other benefits, he points out. “The single application approach with NPKS fertilisers means you’re eliminating potentially two autumn applications using heavy machinery at a time when soils are not in their best condition for load bearing. “With a typical fertiliser application estimated at around £6/ ha, the savings in labour, fuel and machinery resulting from the single application approach are substantial. “Independent trials have also shown CF true granular NPKS compounds can be reliably and accurately spread up to 36m in properly set up and calibrated fertiliser spreaders.”

The extent of the P and K issue in the UK A recent analysis of soils collected as part of a survey of land along the proposed High Speed 2 (HS2) rail routes from London to Crewe and Leeds has revealed some interesting insight into the extent of the problem with UK P and K levels, Dr Awan says. “More than 1,400 samples have been collected along the route looking specifically at the topsoil and upper subsoil (to 50cm) and these were measured at government-approved NRM Laboratories, with results reported by the AHDB. “Amongst other findings, the AHDB HS2 report, 2021, shows that up to 48 per cent of the arable soils analysed were P deficient and 47 per cent of them were K deficient (Table 1). “In some regions, particularly in the North, deficiency of P in grasslands was as high as 75 per cent, while the situation with K in the same regions was even worse at nearly 77 per cent.” Growers cannot afford to be complacent with P and K levels, particularly knowing their impact on crop production efficiency and overall sustainability, he says. “It’s not an area for guesswork – the implications are too great. All producers should get their soils tested regularly for P and K and take the appropriate action to remedy any deficiencies before they start to eat into enterprise profitability. “Modern NPKS compounds undoubtedly offer the most costeffective, simple to use and reliable method for addressing P and K problems with the added benefit of higher NfUEs and crop productivity as well.” FG

Improved crop resilience NPKS compounds could also help with improving crop resilience, particularly with regard to better drought tolerance, he says. “Spring-applied K, in particular, supports the uptake of nitrogen considerably, which stimulates healthy growth of both the plant and its roots so this can also help with drought tolerance. “The highly soluble Phosphate in NPKS compound fertiliser also encourages optimum root development so plants are better able to find water when drought conditions prevail. “These nutrients working in conjunction with the Nitrogen and Sulphur have the overall effect of improving growth, maximising nitrogen utilisation and together deliver the highest final yield and grain quality.” True granular NPKS compounds differ from blends in that balanced levels of all nutrients are present in every granule and they can be reliably spread to wider bout widths. The full CF Fertiliser NKPS range is designed to have options available for most farming systems

Seed processing: It pays to know what’s under the hood Growers have become accustomed to explaining the various agronomic techniques used within their crop production regime to their customers. However, when it comes to seed production, is the same level of detail available from processors? It is easy to think all seed is processed in the same way, but the choice of machinery and the processes involved do vary. Understanding that the quality of the seed is the spark that drives the quality of the resulting harvest, and quality of seed processing underpins this yield potential. Differences in cleaning efficiency equates to the degree of improvement a machine can deliver to the original sample, i.e. the percentage rejection they can achieve. Different combinations of machine achieve different results. For example, a Gravity Separator separates by specific weight and is

capable of rejecting a high percentage of seed as required in order to obtain the best sample. Gravity Separators are sometimes confused with Gravity Selectors, but it is easy to tell them apart by the large ‘table’ appearance of a Gravity Separator, compared to the small screen area of a selector. In fact, Gravity Separators are also often called Gravity Tables, due to this tablelike appearance. British seed processing equipment manufacturer Crown manufactures complete processing solutions and bespoke British machinery depending on customer requirements and can provide a handy glossary of terms for growers wanting to know more about seed processing machinery and techniques.

Conventional variety, hybrid yields In June, Elsoms invited members of the press to view its cereal trial plots in Cowlinge, West Suffolk, and one barley variety particularly impressed. Rachel Hicks reports.

George Goodwin in a plot of Bolton winter barley.

One of the varieties on trial in Cowlinge, as part of the AHDB RL trials, was winter barley Bolton – a 2-row feed barley, and one of the first varieties to come through the Elsoms Ackermann breeding program aimed at providing the UK market with greater genetic diversity. When it appeared on the 2021/22 Recommended List at the end of last year, Elsoms combinable crop manager, George Goodwin, commented: “Bolton was incredibly consistent, achieving between 105–106 per cent of controls across all its regional trials. It offers a good balance between high yield and good disease resistance, it’s barley yellow mosaic virus (BYMV) resistant and is suitable for both heavy and light land. Following our recent success with Jordan, the launch of Bolton confirms that the future Elsoms Ackermann barley pipeline looks strong.” Developed using a combination of KWS Cassia and California, Mr Goodwin stated during the press event that Bolton offers a statistically significant yield advantage over the two parents, and is a typical farmer-friendly variety which has been well received so far. He also explained that, with Bolton, consistency is the watchword as it has achieved a UK yield of 106 during official trials four years running. According to

its RL listing, it yielded 107 per cent of control in the East, 104 in the West and 105 in the North, so has a recommendation across all UK regions. Elsoms head of agriculture Paul Taylor (right) confirmed this, and says the breeder is very proud of Bolton which, although not Elsoms’ first entry onto the RL, is likely to be its biggest to date. “Bolton is a 2-row conventional variety, and the two key points are a very high consistent yield, and straw strength. “In 2020, some barley variety yields dropped quite sharply. The RL average yield data tends to mask it a bit, but Bolton was the most consistent, including across region/season and soil type. “The other point is standing – lodged barley is a nightmare for the farmer, and with a lodging score of 8 and a treated lodging score of 1 per cent, nothing is safer than Bolton. Many of the older varieties are grown for ‘safety’, but Bolton offers the same if not better straw characteristics with 4–7 per cent yield increase as well. What’s not to like?” Mr Goodwin confirmed that there is enough seed available for autumn 2021 to take on 10 per cent of the market share. FG

New front box resolves storage woes

Machinery dealer announces rebrand Independent machinery dealer Ellis Machinery has announced that, as of 1st June, it has rebranded, changing its name to Amtec Smart Farming Solutions. The move marks the brand’s wider product and service offering. The family-owned business started trading 30 years ago, beginning with reconditioned Dowdeswell ploughs, alongside the family’s farming operations. It rapidly earned a reputation for quality and customer service, leading to the expansion of the business. Today it buys, sells and repairs a huge range of arable equipment from its 6-acre yard in Gaydon, Warwickshire and has become one of the UK’s leading used agricultural machinery dealers, with a stock of more than 450 quality machines, delivering to farmers across the UK

every day. In addition, the business has developed a farm machinery hire division, offering a wide range of trailers, ploughs, drills and cultivators for long- and short-term hire, as well as being the UK distributor of Idrofoglia irrigation hose reels and pumps. It also runs online machinery auctions, enabling farmers to buy and sell equipment through a virtual marketplace, as well as a thriving machinery export business. Commenting on the rebrand, Amtec director David Ellis, said: “Our team members are experts in their field and our new name and logo represent a new chapter in the evolution of the business, as we work to incorporate new services and markets to build a strong global brand.” FG

Lack of storage in the tractor cab can be an issue for operators, so JF Hudson Ltd has built a new range of Compact Front Boxes that attach to the front linkage of a tractor when the arms are folded up. Boxes offer a large and secure space to store a wide variety of essentials, including grease guns, baler string, fuel, oil, water and seed. Owner and managing director James Hudson said operator safety was a key factor in the design; the low-profile design provides excellent stability and a good line of sight. Storing contents in the box also removes the danger of flying objects if a tractor rolls over. The Compact Front Boxes are available for any front tractor linkage and can be painted to suit the manufacturer’s colours. They are available in a range of sizes, from a 685–1,250mm wide toolbox. The boxes are available in four finishes: plastic, powder coated, aluminium or matte stainless steel. They can be upgraded to include LED lights, steel locks, a spill box,

water tank and soap dispenser among other choices. Optional extras also include a laser-cut nameplate or logo of the buyer’s choice (stainless steel or painted). Plus, an accompanying wheelbraked trolley for easy attachment, removal and storage of boxes. All compact front boxes are available for immediate order through the new web shop or by phone or email.

Telehandler manufacturer expands its ‘green network’ further

Merlo UK has added a new dealership, located close to Great Yarmouth on the beautiful East Norfolk coast, to its network. SAS Agri is a family business owned and run by Richard and Emma (pictured). In March 2020, Richard

and Emma purchased SAS Agri from its founder Alan Suffling, who set up the business back in 2000. Alan

has built an excellent reputation within the agricultural world for his knowledge and experience of agricultural machinery, and continues to work with Richard and Emma, providing guidance and imparting his vast industry knowledge. Richard and Emma made the decision to purchase the business as they recognised the need to continue to provide specialist independent service of both new and used agricultural trailers, tankers and spreaders. The pair are genuinely passionate about the SAS brand and ensure they always provide an excellent service to all customers. “We are really pleased to welcome SAS Agri Ltd to the Merlo UK dealer network,” commented Merlo UK Ltd national sales manager, Owen Buttle. “We plan to work closely together with SAS Agri to develop the Merlo business in North East Norfolk in the years ahead. We know how important it is for the local agricultural community to have a dealer they can rely upon when they need support.

This appointment, with Richard and Emma’s local connections and agricultural machinery experience, we are sure will be met with strong local approval.” Emma Davey was quoted as saying: “Richard and I are delighted to be joining the Merlo dealer network. We are looking forward to meeting Merlo customers old and new, for both sales and service at our family run dealership on the Norfolk coast. Being farmers ourselves, we understand the needs of our customers first-hand. We pride ourselves on excellent customer service and matching the right machine to the right customer. We are able to support our customers with our large parts store and the ability to offer service and repair options on farm, or in our large on-site workshop. We feel that the Merlo brand will complement our current range of agricultural machinery and are incredibly proud to be approached to take on this new franchise.” Pay SAS Agri a visit to view how the Merlo telehandler range can enhance your agriculture business.

Latest tractors, handlers and new electric telehandler – hands-on test An early June demonstration at one of JCB’s Staffordshire farms provided an opportunity to test-drive the latest JCB Fastracs, new TM articulated loaders and the eagerly awaited electric-powered Loadall. Fastrac updates Meeting Stage 5 emissions regulations for both 4000- and 8000-series Fastracs has been achieved by adding a DPF which works with the SCR (AdBlue), but without exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) which was a previous feature of the engines. The new DPF is under the right side of the cab so visibility isn’t affected, and regeneration intervals will coincide with routine dealer servicing although manual regeneration can also be initiated. 4000-series Fastracs have an extended 600-hour service interval, partly due to changing to hydraulic tappets which are already on 8000-series models. The latest 4000-series tractors have gained heavy duty axles and hubs, plus new brake discs 10 per cent larger than before. These have helped raise the maximum permissible gross vehicle weight to 14.5t. “We found that customers were using the previous version for a larger range of in-field applications than ever before and seeing fantastic tractive performance so it made sense to upgrade the drive gear and allow users to make more of its capability,” explained JCB senior Fastrac sales engineer James Coxon. “With the extra weight there is more grip, and we have also added new VF tyre options to optimise performance.” The new Twin Steer steering mode was demonstrated. This uses the Fastrac’s four-wheel steering and two GPS guidance systems to create separate AB lines for the front and rear axles. When working on slopes, the front and rear steering operate independently to correct side slip and maintain the correct position.

For operating on slopes or level ground, Twin Steer can also be used in a crab steering mode to optimise weight distribution. Cultivating a grass ley provided a good demonstration. First an AB line was set for the front axle, then crab-steer mode was selected and a different AB line was set for the rear axle so that the wheels maintained different tracks. At each headland the tractor turned normally, then the autosteer was re-engaged and the previous wheel offset was achieved. The system compensates for left or right turns so that the offset is always to the correct side for accurate bout matching. JCB developed Twin Steer with Trimble, but other GPS guidance systems are compatible, making it ideal for customers with mixed fleets. “Most operators don’t realise how much tractors slip on side slopes until Twin Steer is activated, and then it feels strange maintaining a straight path,” added James. “It’s a useful feature and JCB is the only manufacturer which can offer it.”

latest models have active hydraulic suspension all round – similar to the proven arrangement on 4000-series machines. This maintains a constant ride height when front mounted implements or ballast are attached, and also improves weight transfer to maintain close to 50/50 weight distribution for maximum traction. Front end dipping during heavy braking is reduced. Maximum permissible gross vehicle weight

A demonstration by JCB provided an opportunity for Farmers Guide to test-drive updated Fastrac 4000- and 8000-series tractors.

has been increased to 18t, and rear deck load capacity is up to 5t, allowing larger tanks and hoppers to be mounted. New VF tyre options allow extra load carrying at lower inflation pressures. Mitas VF 480/70R38 front, plus VF 480/80R46 rear tyres can be specified for row crop applications and there are also new 600-and 710mm options with VF technology. continued over…

The Fastrac 8000-series has new active hydraulic front axle suspension and a higher 18t permissible gross vehicle weight.

8000-series Updates to 8000-series Fastracs announced in 2019 included meeting Stage 5 emissions standards. Other improvements included revised engine and transmission management software. Previously drive take-up from stand-still could be aggressive, but updated models have smoother drive engagement which starts as soon as the accelerator pedal is pressed. Previous 8000-series Fastracs had coil suspension at the front and hydraulic suspension at the rear, but

Twin Steer uses a pair of GPS guidance systems to control the steering action of the front and rear axles independently. This can compensate for side-slip on slopes, and allows crab steering for improved weight distribution during field work.

Electric Loadall JCB announced its 525-60E electric Loadall last November. Only one model is available currently, based on the diesel 525-60 with 2.5t lift capacity and 6m maximum lift height. The electric version is designed to provide identical performance to the diesel model, and it has dual electric motors which separately power the wheels and hydraulics. An on-board 96V, 24kWh lithium-ion battery provides capacity for an average day’s work for 90 per cent of users, based on use analysis gathered through LiveLink telematics data from 525-60 diesel machines all over the world. Externally the 525-60E looks

little different to the diesel machine, although JCB stresses that it is far from being an electrified diesel. The main battery is under what would otherwise be the engine hood and a separate 12V conventional battery provides power for the cab systems. An on-board 34kW charger allows the Loadall to be plugged in and charged from a single-phase supply in eight hours for a full charge, or five hours from 25 per cent which better reflects predicted typical use. An optional off-board rapid charger can fill the battery in only 1.5 hours from 25 per cent remaining capacity. Other charging options for less intensive use include using a 110V, 1.2kW supply or a standard 240V domestic mains supply to charge the battery in 21 hours. Whichever

JCB has also added an electric ‘refuelling bowser’ to its product line-up. This provides additional charging options including the ability to charge the power pack at night or from a ‘green’ power source, then use it to charge the handler’s battery wherever it is working – including in locations without mains power. The mobile power supply can also power other electrical equipment making it extremely versatile. The Loadall’s lithium-ion battery is maintenance-free with a predicted 5,000-cycle working life, after which the capacity drops below 80 per cent.

Efficient drive Power to the hydraulics is from a 22kW motor driving an 80-litre/min hydraulic pump. The wheels are driven by a 17kW motor. The axle is the same as the diesel version, although a drop-box replaces the standard transmission between the motor and axle. Power is recovered during deceleration to extend battery life, and there is no conventional front brake.

Selecting forward or reverse and then pressing the accelerator pedal, the Loadall moves away smoothly. Because it is so quiet, there is an expectation that it might lack the real-world performance of the diesel model – but during the test it proved equally fast and capable. Pushing hard into the compacted manure and angling the grab to pack in as much material as possible, the handler easily lifted and carried it to the trailer.

Extending the boom to reach over the side of the trailer, there was again an expectation that the quiet machine might not be up to the job but was just as well balanced as the diesel. The overload protection system is the same as on other JCB handlers, with pillar-mounted indicator lights informing the operator as the limit is approached. Although the 525-60E boasts the same performance figures as its diesel sibling, there are situations where it out-performs it. The diesel engine’s maximum power is shared between all the systems so in heavy working conditions as the revs reduce under load, the hydraulic performance becomes slower and there is less torque at the drive wheels. Even when the wheels of the battery machine require full power, the hydraulic performance is not affected.

The new TM420S has 173hp, a twin displacement hydraulic pump for maximum efficiency and a highly-efficient, eight-speed intelligent powershift transmission.

Comfort The cab is very quiet, and silent when it is stationary when a diesel engine would typically be idling. This makes it easier for others working in the same area to communicate with the driver, improving safety. The statutory reversing beeper seems louder than on a conventional machine as there is no engine noise to drown it, but with the electric model’s near-silent operation it is essential.

Verdict The Loadall 525-60E surprised the Farmers Guide test operator with its impressive performance. It is excellent and with less maintenance needed than an equivalent diesel-engine machine, there is less downtime and service costs should be lower. JCB is confident that for most users it will work a full day between charges, and

with zero emissions during use it is a clean and quiet option for working in packhouses, glasshouses and livestock buildings, and will help boost the ‘green’ credentials of suppliers. It is definitely worth considering when similar-size diesel models are due for updating, and it might just be the start of a new generation of farm machinery to come.

Other handlers The latest mid-size Loadalls have all gained DieselMax 4.8-litre, 4-cyl engines meeting Stage 5 emissions requirements. Agri Super versions gain 5hp and have 130hp, and Agri Xtra models also gain 5hp and 7 per cent extra torque with 150hp and 600Nm. Base Agri versions retain their 109hp power units. DualTech Variable Transmission has been added to the range options

Machinery for mid-spec Agri Super models, whereas previously it was only available on Agri Pro models. The new 532-60 Agri Super is an addition to the line-up, complementing the existing base spec 532-60 Agri. The new model is an ideal size for use in and around farm buildings, but with the premium transmission it offers extra performance and versatility. It is powered by a DieselMax 130hp engine driving a 140 litres/min load-sensing hydraulic pump. The exclusive DualTech VT transmission provides hydrostatic drive for precise, low-speed operations, and powershift mechanical drive for high-speed transport efficiency up to the maximum 40kph.

place at higher revs for maximum performance. The TM420S, and TM320S with the 50kph transmission gain dual-circuit brakes and oil immersed discs in both axles. The TM420S has a 160 litres/min, twin-displacement hydraulic pump for fast cycle times even at low revs. Cab improvements include a one-piece windscreen offering an increase in forward visibility by 13 per cent, programmable work lights and a standard rear-view camera. Most switches have been relocated to the cab pillar under a rubber membrane. A programmable joystick button can be assigned for multiple functions and adds convenience. A new Pro Pack specification for the TM320S and

Pictured with the latest 4000-series Fastrac are product specialist Tom Mowforth (left) with James Coxon.

TM420S includes a half-leather heated seat, 360-degree lights and extra storage. Z-bar linkage is standard and the nose cone of TM420 models is cast for extra strength.

The steering angle is up to 40 degrees on TM420 models and 43 degrees on TM320 versions, and the pivot point oscillates up to +\- 10 degrees. FG

Wheel loaders A test-drive on the latest ultra-compact 403 Plus wheeled loader demonstrated its superb manoeuvrability. With twice the power of the existing ultra-compact 25hp 403 Smart Power, the new 403 Plus has a Perkins 50hp engine paired with a 60-litres/ min hydraulic pump for demanding tasks and higher work rates. Standard 2.6m or high lift 2.8m versions are available, and it lifts up to 616kg. Twin hydraulic supplies to run attachments can be selected through an improved in-cab diverter valve, and a choice of headstocks are available. The standard cab is a canopy, although a fully glazed cab or a quick folding ROPs frame are also available. A trailer hitch is a new option. JCB says the UK market for this size of handler is growing, although previously most demand has been for export to mainland Europe.

TM loaders A test-drive of the new TM420S Agri articulated loader included manure handling in the yard and travel at high speeds along a hilly route through the JCB estate. The new 420S flagship is the most powerful of four models in the TM320 Agri and TM420 Agri line-up, and is powered by a 173hp version of the DieselMax 4.8-litre engine. All four models share a new ‘intelligent’ eightspeed powershift transmission with manual or automatic operating modes. A higher specification version, standard on the TM420S and an option on the TM320S, allows 50kph maximum speed and features lock-up in all gears including reverse for maximum power and efficiency – making it ideal for demanding applications such as silage clamp construction. The ‘intelligent’ automatic shifting provides relaxed gear changes at low revs for maximum fuel economy, but under heavy loads gear changes are delayed and take

This replaces the current Excalibur unit, which was built by ABT, offering more space, a higher-spec interior and better visibility. Views to the boom have been improved, with large, sweeping corner windows and a redesigned engine canopy with chamfered corners. On both sprayers, Househam’s engineers have redesigned the mirrors to improve access, fitted LED work lights and installed a hydraulic-folding ladder with a controller integrated into the park brake. An illuminated pressure gauge has also been included, for clearer visibility when working at night. Standard features of the X10 include automatic air conditioning, a Bluetooth radio, three-way tilting steering column and adjustable sun blinds on all windows. There’s also a larger buddy seat with a 27-litre fridge housed underneath. AirRide updates: AirRide sprayers can now be specified with four- or six-cylinder Stage 5 Mercedes engines with power outputs ranging from 170–240hp. The 170hp option is a single-turbo four-cylinder, the 228hp version uses the same block with twin turbos and the 240hp version is a six-cylinder with single turbo. These power a hydrostatic motor that drives Poclain wheel motors on AirRide 3000 and 3500 models and heavier-duty Sauer Danfoss units on all larger versions. However, buyers do have the option to upgrade the smaller models. Tank options range from 3,000-litres to 6,000-litres and there’s a choice of 24, 28 or 30m booms. Unladen weight is from 6,700kg and ground clearance is 1.1m, with the option of increasing this to 1.7m. Harrier updates: Harrier models now come with a six-cylinder 240hp Mercedes engine as standard and heavy-duty Sauer Danfoss wheel motors. Spray packs are integrated into the chassis and come with the option of 4,000–6,000-litre tanks and boom options up to 36m. Unladen weight is from 8,500kg and ground clearance is 1.1m. All Househam sprayers are designed and built in Woodhall Spa, Lincolnshire and the current range includes the Spirit, AirRide, Harrier and Predator.

Heading for a bumper harvest Ceres Titanium Bulk Bucket.

Ceres Barn-Stormer Grain Pusher.

The perfect pair for harvest-time – the Ceres Barn-Stormer Grain Pusher and the new Ceres Titanium Bulk Bucket, made from 100 per cent Hardox. The 2.5m wide blade of the BarnStormer Grain Pusher is shaped to propel your materials effortlessly; its smooth design without grain traps provides clean operation to avoid the risk of cross-contamination, both inside and outside of your buildings. The blade is fitted with a long-lasting, hard-wearing rubber-nylon replaceable wear strip that glides efficiently over wooden, vented, and polished or

tamped concrete floors with ease. The large, centrally mounted tube is not only light and robust, but it also increases visibility and manoeuvrability around doorways, ducts, vents and beams. Sufficiently braced from the blade and the headstock, this gives the Barn-Stormer the best strength to weight ratio in its class.  The Barn-Stormer is available in a large variety of lengths, from 3.5m

up to 16m. It's built to order to suit your telehandler or loading shovel, whatever bracket configuration you may have. All models of the Barn-Stormer are also available as an expandable version, which allows the length of the implement to be extended by the addition of extra sections of tube, thus increasing the versatility and longevity. The Ceres team can advise on the optimum length of grain pusher for you, to increase the speed and efficiency of this task, so that with practice, large trailer loads can be elevated in two or three pushes, with

less shunting backwards and forwards, and booming in and out, saving time during the busiest season. To complement the Barn-Stormer Grain Pusher, Ceres has introduced the new Titanium Bulk Bucket. The Titanium B is made from 100 per cent Hardox 450, which reduces the overall weight of the bucket, allowing for the maximum volume of grain and cereals to be moved each time; and depending on application, it can last up to six times longer than a mild steel bucket. The gentle curve throughout the base and up the back of the bucket makes for quick and easy filling and helps with easier unloading of damp or claggy materials. This continuous curve means that the Titanium B can be used for many other bulk materials besides grain, for example, millet, woodchips, maize, and silage. The curved sides and integrated spill guard allow for increased capacity and volume of materials, as well as reducing the chance of any spillage.  The Titanium Bulk Bucket is built to order, to suit your telehandler brackets and capacity, and your application – from 4–12ft wide and from 2–18m3 capacity, with a toe-tip option available.

Farmers Guide put the 4wd Ford Transit Leader van through its paces during a week-long test.

All wheel drive makes the Transit a practical option While double-cab pick-ups are likely to remain popular for the foreseeable future, there are some farm tasks for which the extra load capacity and security of a van makes sense. David Williams tried Ford’s 4wd Transit. More than 55 years after the first Ford Transit vans rolled off the production line, the range now includes a huge range of models, specifications and options. For transporting pallets, boxes and sacks by road they are ideal, and popular with farm shops for collecting supplies and for local deliveries. Agricultural machinery dealers, contractors and tyre suppliers use them too, allowing service teams to travel to farms with all their tools and equipment, and with replacement parts under cover protected from weather and theft.

Off-road capability Most vans are designed primarily for use on hard surfaces, and lack the traction and ground clearance needed for operating off-road. However, Ford’s Transit range is also available with 4wd and Farmers Guide put it through its paces during a week-long test – including long-distance road journeys, as well as travelling across fields and along challenging farm tracks. The version supplied for the test was the Transit Leader 2.0 TDCi, 350 MWB High 130PS AWD with a recommended on-the-road price of £38,740, but extras fitted to the test vehicle increased this to £42,875. The Transit range includes three specification levels, although 4wd is only available in the base Leader spec and the top Trail spec, which also includes leather seats, automatic wipers and lights, plus air conditioning and external styling features. Engine options are both 2.0-litres, and 130hp or 170hp. Manual six-speed transmission is standard. The test vehicle supplied was a medium-wheelbase, high roof version with a maximum 3.5t gross vehicle weight, but a standard height model would be cheaper, and probably the preference for most farm situations. The test week included several long road journeys and the performance from the 130hp engine was good. The manual gearbox had wellspaced ratios with plenty of overlap between the gears and it was easy to keep up with other traffic and overtake safely. The Leader specification was

basic, but the hard-wearing fabric seats were practical and comfortable. Visibility is excellent, helped by a huge windscreen and large external mirrors which include wide angled lower sections for a clear view alongside the van. The seats had plenty of adjustment and were supportive and comfortable. The foot brake pedal is uncomfortably high, which means the driver has to lift his feet and then push down making smooth braking difficult. The ride was firm but comfortable and the van handled very well on all types of road. Fuel consumption on longer journeys averaged 32.5mpg.

Comfort and practicality The test vehicle was equipped with an optional 8in colour touchscreen which displays media including radio stations and links to Apple phones for full CarPlay functionality. The image is clear and bright and settings are easy to adjust and it was

easy to use the screen to display navigation maps from the phone. The main dashboard is well laid out, the instruments are clear and easy to see and it took only a short while to get used to the trip computer menus and functions. Air conditioning isn’t included in the base specification Transit, although the loan vehicle had an optional manual system fitted. Heating and cooling performance were excellent, and it took only a few minutes to achieve a suitable temperature in the small cab. Many tractor manufacturers could learn from the Transit’s creative storage solutions, and little space is wasted. There are handy pockets, trays and compartments of all sizes wherever you look, and the challenge at the end of the test week was ensuring no small items had been left behind as there were so many places to check.

Extremely capable The off-road test drive followed several days of heavy rain, making it ideal for evaluating the 4wd. Standard 2wd is through the rear axle, but a button continued over…

With 4wd selected, the Transit tackled rutted farm tracks with ease.

Machinery a wide range of speeds, and overlap between the first two gears means the driver can change up and down without losing momentum. The Transit AWD lacks substantial underbody protection, so it is far better suited to use in soft sand or mud or on slippery grass slopes rather than areas where rocks or tree stumps might pose a risk. However, during the test drive it proved extremely capable and there was never a fear of becoming stuck, even though the farm’s own 2wd van wouldn’t have been able to travel the same route.

Versatile load carrier

The Leader specification is basic, but comfortable. The test vehicle had optional air conditioning and a superb 8in touchscreen. In-cab storage for odds and ends of all sizes is excellent. …from previous page

on the dashboard opens a small display by the main instruments, then pressing the button a second time allows a mud and ruts setting mode to be selected and engages the front axle too. The AWD version has similar ground clearance to the standard Transit but offers improved traction. On a muddy farm track used daily by tractors, the Transit coped well – steering in and out of the ruts with ease. Although there is no low range, first gear allows slow speeds at high engine revs making it ideal for tackling tricky off-road sections. Second gear is also very flexible for off-road use, allowing

Although the test van had the optional high roof, the access for large items was similar to the standard Transit. The handy side door provides an opening 127cm wide and 161cm high (from the main flat floor) so it’s wide enough for a standard pallet. However, care is needed for loading by forklift as there is little clearance and the first point of contact is the vulnerable front edge of the sliding door. Access through the rear doors is good and with both fully open items up to 156cm wide and 184cm high can fit through the opening. Most of the floor area is flat although the wheel arches restrict the width to 136cm. The tie down points are superb, and far stronger than in most pick-ups.

Verdict Compared with a standard rear wheel drive Transit Leader of similar specification to the model we tested, upgrading to 4wd adds approximately £4,210. Opting for the higher specification Trail

model for £4,385 more adds extra comfort, but most farm vans will travel relatively short distances making the premium hard to justify, although higher residual values will eventually see most of the difference returned. Ford’s Transit AWD impressed during the test drive, with its comfortable on-road performance combined with the ability to tackle muddy farm tracks and fields with ease. The fuel economy was much better than expected and the performance from the 130hp engine was good too. For those combining farm and family transport and travelling longer journeys a twin-cab pick-up is hard to beat, but for agricultural dealers, farm shops and farm mechanics the Transit AWD is well worth a look. FG

Full-size pallets can be loaded through the side and rear doors. The vulnerable front edge of the side door is the first point of contact during mis-judged loading. There are heavy-duty tie down points making it easy to secure loads.

New R-series telescopic handlers from Bobcat have been announced, offering extra user comfort and available with a range of productivity aids.

Telescopic handler updates increase productivity and comfort Bobcat has announced a new generation of telescopic handlers for agricultural use, with new cabs and intelligent operating modes. David Williams reports. The latest R-series updates cover all lift capacities and sizes in Bobcat’s range, from 2.6–4.3t and from 6–8m lift height. There are seven models in the line-up, all with engine upgrades meeting Stage 5 emissions requirements. The new models feature significant improvements over previous versions, and will form an important part of Bobcat’s strategy to double production volumes by 2025.

There are two sizes: Compact, which includes the TL26.60, TL30.60 and TL30.70 models, and Large, featuring the TL35.70, TL34.65HF, TL38.70HF and TL43.80HF.

Cab upgraded Cabs have been updated with a better finish, improved controls and clearer instruments. Particular attention was given to in-cab storage solutions – an area of

design often neglected on handlers, and Bobcat options include a refrigerated or heated isothermal compartment for drinks or food. Improved insulation reduces the cab noise level by half. The main comfort upgrade is a new Grammer Maximo Dynamic air suspension heated seat with floating armrest controls. Display options include the standard LCD colour terminal, or

an optional 7in touchscreen with a built-in radio and smartphone integration. The view from a rear camera is displayed as soon as reverse is selected, and the righthand mirror is adjustable from the cab. Working at night is easier with the aid of a 360-degree LED lighting pack.

Improved control The main multi-function joystick is designed for faster operation. Rather than having a button at the top of the joystick to select the travel direction, there is now a selector at the rear of the stick operated by the index finger which selects forward, neutral or reverse. This leaves the top of the stick free for a thumb switch for convenient operation of the boom auxiliary functions plus new smart modes including Auto Grab, bucket shake, boom float and speed shift.

Machinery the cab and is claimed to reduce blind spots by 15 per cent.

Improved productivity As well as boasting best-in-class boom speeds, the new R-series handlers come with new operating functions with intelligent control. These include Job Manager, which allows the operator to create, adjust and save working profiles for multiple attachments and tasks. Settings for auxiliary oil flow rates, boom travel speed, Auto Grab, Creep and reverse fan timing can be saved. Two drive modes – Smooth or Dynamic – can be selected to suit the operator’s preference. Dynamic drive increases transmission reaction speed for faster forward and reverse shuttling, with more aggressive acceleration and deceleration. Flex Drive control allows the engine rpm and drive speed to be managed independently. With this mode selected, the user can operate the handler using the hand throttle to select the engine running speed, while travel speed is controlled by the right pedal. Semi-crab is a new steering mode, allowing the rear wheels to be locked in any position while steering is by the front wheels. This offers

particular advantages for working alongside walls or close to the edge of silage clamps.

Automated boom functions New functions to increase work rates and reduce operator effort have also been added to the R-series handlers: Maximum lift angle – This allows the user to set a maximum working height for the boom to help reduce the risk of damage when working in low buildings. Return to ground – This function lets the operator select and record a boom angle position with the boom retracted, then each time the boom is lowered it automatically retracts and returns to the pre-set position so that the next handling cycle can start again more quickly. Auto Grab – When implements such as muck grabs are used, this feature allows the operator to overpress the thumb roller while the grab is opening or closing and the cycle completes automatically.

Reduced downtime Engine access is improved on the latest models for easier maintenance. Upgraded versions of the Bobcat D34 engine with

The R-series handlers are available with lift capacity from 2.6–4.3t, and maximum lift height from 6–8m.

DPF aftertreatment meet the emissions standards and automatic regeneration cycles are activated when needed without operator intervention. The standard warranty is three years or 3,000 hours, but this can be extended to five years or 5,000 hours for added peace of mind.

Four spec levels There are four specification levels allowing users to select the appropriate comfort and productivity features to suit their working situation and budget. The Bobcat Agri 4 Star Pack is the premium package designed for intensive use by contractors and larger farms. FG

Manufacturer delivers tankers to the UK Irish manufacturer Grass Technology is bringing its innovations in slurry tankers and low emission spreading systems to the UK market. Grass Technology, based in Co. Carlow, Ireland, is well known for being Europe’s leading manufacturer of zero grazers for nearly a decade. This is due to the machine’s fantastic quality and the company’s excellent customer service. This experience gained with zero grazers, coupled with the latest and highest standards in design, engineering and manufacture, has led Grass Technology to set its sights on the same position and innovation within the UK slurry market. The company is now in its third year of manufacturing slurry tankers and low emission spreading systems, with many systems already on-farm across the country. With capacities from 1,600–4,500 gallons including a 3,000-gallon single axle option, each has a specification that would be considered ‘extra’ for other brands, the company reckons. Commercial axles with large brakes on recessed wheels, sprung drawbar, 13,500-litre pumps, full flushable sight tube, LED lights and a splash plate are all standard. Single axle models run on 800s with twin axle models having 710 tyres as standard. The tankers are competitively priced, currently enjoying an introductory discount and are available now to your specification, painted or galvanised in a reasonable, industry-leading timescale, according to the manufacturer. Typical lead time is still under 16 weeks – even with either of the popular chassis mounted dribble bar or trailing shoe options fitted. These low emission spreaders can also be retrofitted to any existing tanker with a large catalogue of successful upgrades, all with Bomech Alrena auto reverse macerator with in-cab touchscreen. Grass Technology also produces an innovative straight bladed drill seeder that has a simple design but gives superior results, plus a Beet Master root washer/chopper/feeder bucket. The company’s zero grazers with the Kuhn PZ mower still play an important part in the company’s product portfolio. Rob Jones, the company’s UK representative, is centrally based and available to talk to UK farmers about their next slurry tanker and low emission spreading system. FG

Machinery Claas has invested 30M Euros in its Le Mans tractor plant during a three-year upgrade to increase production from 10,000 to 13,000 tractors per year. Key to the state-of-the-art assembly process is a fleet of 40 automated guided vehicles, each capable of carrying up to 20t.

Production capacity increased to meet predicted future demand Claas has celebrated the start of tractor production at its state-of-the-art factory in Le Mans, France following investment totalling over €40M to modernise the plant over the past three years. David Williams reports. Claas acquired Renault Agriculture in 2003, and has since invested €80M in the Le Mans factory, the development centre in Velizy, and the test and validation centre in Trange. At present, five tractor model series from 75–460hp and weighing from 3.5–17.0t are manufactured at Le Mans. Having built on the previous Renault branding, Claas has always enjoyed strong loyalty from French farmers, but with its latest products and back-up provided

through a network of top-grade dealers, exports of French-produced Claas tractors have risen from 33 per cent of production in 2003, to 70 per cent this year.

Significant step In 2017, the decision was made to invest in the factory to increase capacity to meet growing demand. Following the complete renewal of

assembly equipment and digital transformation of the plant; there is capacity for up to 60 tractors to be manufactured per day, in a single shift. This translates to an annual production capacity of 13,000 tractors, up from the current limit of 10,000, and it represents a significant step towards achieving the company’s target of a 10 per cent market share of European tractor sales. The range of models and specifications produced to meet demand from farmers and contractors across Europe and further afield created a particular challenge, so a new manufacturing strategy has been adopted to cope with the volume and mix.

Digital simulations Virtual reality was used during the design phase to simulate all processes from the start of production when the powertrain created the base unit to the finished and tested tractor. The simulations also included assembly of new models which haven’t yet entered production. One of the biggest changes to plant logistics has been investment in 40 automatic guided vehicles to help automate production. The vehicles carry up to 20t each and Claas explained that, as well as having plenty of capacity to transport the continued over…

Machinery parts are delivered in sequence to the tractor as they are needed as it moves along the line, rather than being delivered to a specific location then stored until they are required. “Besides efficiency, the work conditions were our main priority in designing the new manufacturing facility,” explained head of the Claas Tractor Unit and member of the Claas Executive Board, Dr Martin von Hoyningen-Huene. “We have achieved a substantial improvement in workflows and ergonomics which will help increase the concentration and motivation of our staff. Like the new logistics, this is a fundamental ingredient to produce tractors according to the most rigorous quality standards.”

Future developments During the modernisation process, digital simulations were used to optimise the plant's design.

biggest current models, they will also be suitable for larger high performance tractors if and when they are added to the line-up in future.

Improved work environment An improved working environment was one of the key objectives during the modernisation program. The new work stations are bright and spacious, and

Other tractor news from Claas included a comment regarding its AgXeed autonomous tractor project. Dutch manufacturer AgXeed is planning to launch a range of AgBot autonomous tracked tractors next year, with diesel-electric drive and up to 156hp. Claas pointed out that it is involved with the company only as a minority shareholder, and while the two companies remain independent they will collaborate in developing autonomous vehicle technology systems which might be used in future by Claas.

Alternative fuels Asked whether it is investigating alternative fuels and power concepts for its tractors, Claas stated that it is always looking at options, but that as it doesn’t manufacture engines itself it is in a very strong position to select the best solutions from other manufacturers for its tractors, as they become available.

Tyre technology to improve harvest efficiency

Checking combine harvester tyres ahead of, and during, a busy harvest is essential to increase operational efficiency, reduce tyre damage, and minimise soil compaction. Continental CombineMaster tyres can now be specified with ContiPressureCheck. ContiPressureCheck is a new system that monitors the pressure and temperature of tyres to provide the operator with the necessary information to prevent tyre-related issues, such as under-inflation or overloading. During previous harvests, tyres

may have been damaged causing bulges, cuts, or tears. “A thorough check of the tread area and sidewalls, including the rim of the wheel, will identify any areas of concern. The low operating pressure and requirement to carry a heavy load creates strain on the tyre wall, so if there is a fault

the tyre should be changed to avoid operational failure and down time,” says Continental’s agricultural tyre specialist Richard Hutchins. Flat spots can occur when a combine is parked for long periods. “Flat spots are common with combines because of the length of storage time. Investing in a tyre with a more flexible carcass material will help,” he says. N.Flex Technology in Continental tyres is a patent pending, heat-treated nylon that sits beneath the rubber to help the tyre return to its original shape following impacts and heavy use. “N.Flex reduces the occurrence of flat spots and provides a more comfortable ride,” he adds. Continental has developed a stronger single wire bead with a hexagonal cross section – the Hexa bead. The bead is an essential part of a tyre because it keeps the tyre on the rim of the wheel. Many agricultural tyres use as many as 10 individual

wires to create one bead. However, multiple joins in the bead can cause weaknesses and there is a risk that the tyre can detach from the rim, especially at low pressures. “Our research showed a more flexible tyre, with a stronger Hexa bead construction, will grip the rim even at very low pressures. This reduces the risk of the tyre slipping off the rim, whilst helping to spread the huge weight of a combine. This is especially important for the front tyres which take more weight and torque,” he explains. ContiPressureCheck can be retrofitted to existing tyres or specified with new CombineMaster tyres. “This technology is the future and offers farmers an opportunity to reduce soil compaction and avoid costly tyre failure,” concludes Mr Hutchins.

World-renowned tillage, seeding and planting company acquires US-based manufacturer

Vaderstad AB, one of the world’s leading companies in tillage, seeding and planting, has acquired 100 per cent of North Dakota-based AgcoAmity JV LLC (AAJV). AAJV – also known under the name Wil-Rich – will be fully integrated into the Vaderstad global group of companies under the company name Vaderstad Inc. Since 2011, AAJV has

manufactured, designed, and supported the Wil-Rich, Wishek and Concord brands of products with 270 dealers globally, most of them in the United States. Integrating AAJV into the Vaderstad Group allows Vaderstad to gain access to distribution outlets in the USA, a manufacturing facility in the USA as well as benefit from the heritage and

strong reputation of the Wil-Rich, Wishek and Concord brands. “This acquisition is in line with our long-term ambition to grow on the North American market. AAJV has a strong position on the US market combined with a product portfolio that gives us a more complete product offering in North America,” said Vaderstad president and CEO Mats Baverud. AAJV has 110 employees and a manufacturing facility of 30,000m2, a parts distribution warehouse, and a research and development facility in Wahpeton, North Dakota. “We see this as an excellent opportunity to increase our footprint in the US. Our vision remains the same; to be the world’s leading partner for an outstanding emergence. With the acquisition of AAJV we’re even more excited about the future,” said Vaderstad VP business development and co-owner, Henrik Gilstring. AAJV currently has a strong product line serving a broad range of

tillage and seeding needs such as field cultivators, disc harrows, shank drills, disc drills and air carts. “This is a great day for the company, the Wahpeton community and our employees,” commented AAJV’s CEO Keith Whitaker. “The combination of our highly skilled team and Vaderstad’s solid and extensive experience will enable the company to provide a broad set of agronomic solutions for our farmer customers, while achieving our growth objectives with our dealer partners.” Jason Strobbe is appointed new managing director for Vaderstad Inc. Mr Strobbe also holds a position as VP sales and marketing North America. In 2013, Vaderstad took full control over Canadian-based company Seed Hawk, after having been part-owners since 2006. The company, based out of Langbank, Saskatchewan, is now Vaderstad Industries Inc. and produces the very popular Seed Hawk precision air drill for the North American market. FG

Impressive results reflect quality of lots at Cambridgeshire dispersal sale

} e l a s m {far A dispersal sale of machinery used by the Brown family, which has farmed at Upthorpe Farm, Spaldwick near Huntingdon since 1868, attracted plenty of bidders and excellent prices. David Williams reports. The sale was organised by Brown & Co on behalf of William Brown and his wife Denise. William is the fifth generation of his family to farm the land there, and in recent years the enterprise was arable cropping and grassland – although in the past there was a dairy with produce from Ayrshire cows sold through a village milk round and a pedigree Large White pig herd of which some were displayed around the UK. The cattle enterprise ceased in 1957 and the pigs were sold in the mid 1960s. The sale was due to a change in farming policy and, apart from a small area of grass and land in environmental schemes, the rest of the 280ha will be contract-farmed.

Attractive sale The mix of arable and grassland machinery included some which was modern along with classic items, but most was in very good condition and had been well looked after. Several tractors and the combine had been purchased new, and even without professional valeting ahead of the sale, they were as tidy as most dealer demonstrators. “Our employee John Keal worked for my father before I took over running the farm and remained with me until he retired, then his replacement George Read took over and both looked after machinery well and maintained it thoroughly,” explained William. “We used Brown & Co to arrange a sale of grass cutting machinery after we stopped offering a contract grass maintenance service several years ago and found them excellent, and

consultant Michael Alexander is a family friend, so it made sense to use the company again.”

Strong demand Auctioneer George Watchorn said the sale was very successful and attracted buyers from as far afield as Lancashire and Devon, although there were also bidders online from Europe. “We had approximately 230 bidders registered on-site and a further 200 registered for live online bidding,” he said. “Offering live bidding again proved invaluable with active bidders creating a competitive trade. “Prices achieved showed the strong demand for genuine, well maintained, low-houred machinery. Trade across the board was firm, with the bidding equally split between farmers and the trade. The sale was very well presented and highlights included the 2011 John Deere 8245R which went under the hammer at £68,400, and the 2011 New Holland CSX7060 combine which fetched £69,000. Both were in immaculate condition having only worked low hours.” FG

This 4m, 14-leg Progressive Original Ameliorator heavy cultivator was made by Flatford Ltd of York. It made £250 .

Farmer William Brown is pictured (left) with Brown & Co auctioneer and sale organiser George Watchorn.

Massey Ferguson 135 tractors are always popular at farm sales and this example was tidy although it had been hand painted. It had Olympic Trojan 12.4-28 rear grass tyres with 80 per cent tread and was registered on a G-plate. The hour meter displayed 3,059 hours. It sold for £4,400.

Problems with transport between sites mean fixed machinery more than 3m wide is often less attractive than narrower versions, but this Kuhn HR6003D 6m fixed power harrow with a rear crumble roller and dating from 2000 had new tines, was in very tidy condition and made an impressive £6,000. This Case IH 5150 Maxxum Plus with 4wd and a powershift transmission was a 1997 model with an R-prefix registration. It had two spools, a pick-up hitch and front wafer weights, and was on Alliance Power Drive Radial 18.4R38 rear tyres with 40 per cent tread and Mitas 16.9R24 front tyres with 80 per cent tread. The tractor carried Kirbys dealer stickers and was tidy. It achieved a commendable £16,800.

In almost as-new condition, this Case IH Farmall 115U Pro with a 40kph transmission, 4wd, two rear spools, a pick-up hitch and on Michelin MultiBib 540/65R34 rear, and 440/65R24 front tyres – all with 90 per cent tread had recorded 937 hours since it arrived new on the farm in 2014. It carried Collings Bros dealer stickers and was registered on a 14-plate. It made £38,600.

It would be difficult to find a better time of year to sell a combine, and this New Holland CSX7060 with a 20ft Varifeed header and a Shelbourne Reynolds C6000 header trailer didn’t disappoint. It was supplied new to the farm in 2011, carried an 11-plate, and had recorded only 1,107 engine hours. The tyres were Good Year 800/65R32 in almost new condition on the drive axle and Vredestein 16.0/70-20 with 80 per cent tread on the steering axle. With its G&J Peck dealer stickers it was in superb condition inside and out and just beat the John Deere tractor for the highest result of the day at £69,000.

This home-made bowser consisting of a 10ft single axle trailer carrying an 800-gallon steel tank with a 12V electric pump and hose was tidy and a bargain at £60.

These two Good Year 38-20-16.1 STG flotation tyres were brand new and had never been fitted. They sold for £270.

This 1993 JCB 3CX Sitemaster backhoe loader with a 3-in-1 bucket, as well as a selection of rear ditching and trenching buckets and a hydraulic-driven post hold borer was on 18.4-26 Rotras rear tyres in good condition with 30 per cent tread, and Supreme 10.5/80-18 front tyres which were perished with 50 per cent tread. Registered on an L-plate, it had worked 1,686 hours and carried its Watling JCB dealer stickers. The cab was tidy although the seat was torn, and it appeared ready for work. It sold for £12,900.

Attention to field drainage issues is growing and this Proforge Monomole single-leg mole drainer was a 2013 model and in very good condition. It sold for £4,100.

This 2in Honda petrol engine-powered water pump made £80.

This Frazier Agri-Buggy 5D Turbo low ground pressure vehicle was fitted with a Gem 24m sprayer. It had a 1,500-litre tank and was on Good Year 38-20-16.1 flotation wheels and tyres. It had worked 3,718 hours and was registered with a 1995 N-prefix. Carrying Startin Tractors dealer stickers, it appeared tidy and made an impressive £9,900.

One of the stars of the auction was this John Deere 8245R which was delivered new to the farm in 2011 and carried an 11-plate. It had a 40kph powershift transmission, TLS front suspension, an Active seat, four electric spools and was equipped with a 900kg front weight block. The tyres were Good Year Optitrac 710/70R42 rears with 60 per cent tread, and BKT AgriMax 600/70R30 fronts with 90 per cent tread. Carrying Sharmans dealer stickers it had worked only 3,344 hours and was in superb order inside and out. Competitive bidding pushed the final price to £68,400 from a trade buyer.

Dating from 1962, this Land Rover 109 series 2 had been converted for use as a bowser, and was on 7.50-16 wheels and tyres. It had been SORN, but was registered with an A-suffix. The odometer displayed 25,525 miles and the vehicle had last been used on the farm approximately 15 years ago. It was in need of tidying inside and out but appeared fully restorable. Expectations were high and it sold for £2,000.

Carrying its Sharmans selling dealer stickers, this 2016 Sumo Trio 3m trailed progressive cultivator with discs, subsoiler legs and rear packer was in excellent condition. It achieved £14,800.

A selection of vintage tools created considerable interest with their character and high standard of finish. Vintage scales by Day & Millward or Birmingham had quite a lot of woodworm but made £20. Two sack lift barrows sold for £30 and £50, and a Gatward & Son, Hitchin vegetable washer made £60. An R Hunt & Co handpowered root cutter sold for £75.

Three sets of gang rolls included two sets of elderly Cambridge ribbed rolls which were both tidy and sold for £410 and £320, plus a set of Vaderstad Rollex 620 6.2m hydraulic folding rolls (nearest the camera), mounted on 10.0/80-12 wheels and tyres, and in good order which made £2,200.

Sold just a month before the start of harvest, this 2003 Numatic NTD2003 singe-phase grain store vacuum cleaner made £150.

£350 was a fair price for this Moto-Roma Quadmaster 100 2wd children’s quad. It appeared tidy and had electric start.


Four AS Marston grain trailers included two 8t capacity and two 10t models. Nearest the camera – this 8t trailer with a manual tailgate and grain chute was on 11.5/80-15.3 wheels and tyres which were slightly perished. With Rustons dealer stickers and new in 1988, it sold for £4,150. Next to it was a similar model also from 1988, which had better 12.5/80-15.3 tyres with 80 per cent tread which sold for £4,000. Beside that – a 10t 1984 trailer which had had a few minor body repairs was also on 12.5/80-15.3 tyres which appeared sound, and it made £3,000, while on the left a similar 10t trailer, new in 2000 and which was on better 385/65R22.5 wheels and tyres with less than 10 per cent tread, carried its Olivers dealer stickers and made £5,400.

This 1994 Househam HS Sprint 2000, 24m self-propelled sprayer with a 2,000-litre tank was on Continental 12.4R28 wheels and tyres which had plenty of tread but were perished. It was registered on an L-plate and sold for £3,900.

A Cousins V-Form 3m, 5-leg soil loosener with a rear packer was new in 2004 and retained its Pecks dealer stickers. With winged tines it was in very good condition and achieved a winning bid of £5,100.

Ifor Williams trailers sell well at farm sales, and this LT105G 10ft, twin-axle flat-bed version with a front ladder rack and on 145R100 wheels and tyres had a solid but well-used bed and made £1,150.

Former farm employee John Keal told Farmers Guide that he used this Massey Ferguson 701 conventional baler when he worked for William Brown’s father Ray. He said the baler was in regular use until 1972, and since then it has been stored undercover. Described as for ‘spares or repairs’ the baler sold for £150. John is pictured (right) with Philip and Alice Seaman who have a nearby smallholding at the preview day.

Two Ransomes ploughs included a 3f conventional trailed model which sold for £90, and a 2f reversible which achieved £100.

A set of Parmiter hydraulic folding 9m seed harrows (nearest the camera) sold for £320 and a set of basic trailed grass chain harrows beside them made a respectable £150.

Another intriguing older item on offer was this Lister diesel engine-powered aeration fan which was sold for ‘spares or repairs’ but was quite tidy. It made £160.

Displaying Sharmans dealer stickers, this Kverneland LO85 7f (6+1) reversible plough with hydraulic vari-width was tidy and made £4,300.

This 1988 Platypus self-propelled low ground pressure vehicle was equipped with a 12m Lely mounted sprayer. It had a 1,000-litre tank, and had a mix of Alliance and Good Year 31-15.5-15 flotation tyres, all with 40 per cent remaining tread. The cab was tidy and contained an RDS speed and area meter. Former farm employee John Keal is pictured with the sprayer which he helped build new from a kit before using it for several years. It sold for £850.

Autonomous vehicle start-up cooperative

Claas has entered a cooperative venture with Dutch start-up AgXeed B.V. and acquired a minority shareholding in the company’s international funding round as a mark of its commitment.

The aim is to cooperate on the development and commercialisation of autonomous agricultural machines. The farming industry must further increase productivity in the decades ahead to meet the needs of a growing global population. At the same time, the number of people employed in the industry, measured in terms of land area, continues to decline, while skilled labour is increasingly difficult to find in some regions and farmers still work longer hours than many other sectors. The agricultural machinery industry has come up with various solutions to address these challenges, ranging from operator assistance and machine optimisation systems to precision farming technologies, and even autonomous

machines in different size and performance classes. For Claas, collaborating with and investing in AgXeed marks a logical step towards future-proof technologies. Netherlands-based AgXeed offers a smart, sustainable, and fully autonomous system with scalable hardware, virtual planning tools and extensive data models, making it one of Europe’s leading companies in this sector today. AgXeed will be bringing its autonomous AgBot to fields, pastures, and specialty crops alongside a full suite of vehicle peripherals. The aim is for this autonomous field robot with dieselelectric drive, wheels or crawler tracks, up to 156hp and standard three-point linkage to assist farmers with a wide range of tasks in future.

“Our involvement provides Claas with access to innovative technologies in a familiar market segment and complements our own expertise in autonomy and robotics”, explains CEO of the Claas Group, Thomas Bock. “This type of cooperation reflects exactly what we stand for at AgXeed,” adds co-founder of AgXeed B.V., Joris Hiddema. “And this means setting up future-orientated alliances between innovative companies striving for sustainable agriculture where farmers are able to optimise productivity, while preserving the soil and the environment.” AgBot, together with the associated software solutions and platforms, is expected to be launched in 2022. The product and services

offer customers sustainable added value. The AgBot takes care of the monotonous, tedious and in some cases dangerous tasks, leaving farmers more time to deal with the challenges they face today. In concrete terms, the ecosystem surrounding the central, web-based planning and analysis tool boosts efficiency through automated, optimised route planning and machine settings. Optional crawler tracks with belt widths from 300–910 mm, combined with a low maximum weight makes the AgBot very soil friendly. It also features an adjustable track width, load-sensing hydraulics, and a linkage with a lift capacity of up to 8t. An electric PTO, independent of the engine speed, and external highvoltage connections are optionally available. FG

Livestock The Xaletto straw bedding system offers a number of unique features.

Pollo-M air cleaner pumps and controls.

Industry tackles ambitious ammonia targets As farmers face growing pressure from consumers and policymakers to cut carbon and ammonia emissions, speakers at this year’s Pig & Poultry Forums took a closer look at the role of air scrubbers and introduced the Xaletto straw bedding system from Big Dutchman. Beef and dairy have been shown to have the highest ammonia emissions in the livestock sector, but all sectors have a part to play in making reductions, according to Philippa Mansfield, agriculture lead for the CSF partnership. The government has pledged to reduce ammonia emissions by 16 per cent by 2030, and with agriculture accounting for 88 per cent of emissions, it’s clear that farmers will play a key role in this. Research shows key on-farm drivers are housing (accounting for 27 per cent); manure application (25 per cent), fertiliser application (18 per cent) and manure storage (8 per cent).

Air scrubbing – the ROI Inno+ business development manager Simon Lague, explained that while air scrubbing is often seen as an unnecessary and inconvenient cost, it can offer potential return on investment by recovering energy and improving animal productivity. Inno+, which is part of Big Dutchman, uses a plate exchanger to transfer thermal energy from waste water, which then conditions incoming air. This is particularly interesting in sow production, Mr Lague said, where energy from sow housing can be used to warm piglets in winter. A frequently asked question, he added, is how much waste water is produced. Using an example of a 1,000 finisher pig unit, biological systems require 915m3 fresh water per year and produce

515m3 waste water – while chemical systems require 646m3 and produce 64m3 waste. The by-product from biological systems is ammonium nitrate, pH7, with a nitrogen content of 2.8kg/m3, while for chemical it’s ammonium sulphate, pH 3-4, with a nitrogen content of 36.8kg/m3. If spread as organic fertiliser, chemical waste water will need to be treated with lime first, or treated by a waste water management company. On a typical 400-sow farm in the Netherlands, the cost of the system came to around €116,535, Mr Lague said, including the air scrubber, heat pump and costs, while the annual saving per year was estimated by the farmer to be £30,445, factoring in saved energy costs and production benefits from increased feed efficiency and reduced mortality. This gives the system a return on investment of 3.83 years, though Mr Lague said the average is 4.5–5 years. Future systems will be integrated with pre-conditioning and dry cooling to further increase ROI, he added. Use of data is also important, Mr Lague stressed, and most modern systems will have the ability to connect to the computer onsite or preferably via the cloud so reports can be created and shared.

Straw bedding system offers unique features Daniel Holling, director global support for Big Dutchman, introduced the company’s new straw

bedding system, Xaletto, which offers a number of unique features. In use 24 hours a day, seven days a week, there is no need for a slatted area and it has the natural feel of a forest floor, comfortable for feet and joints, and allowing animals to forage – as well as providing a smart and attractive playing material, Mr Holling said. In addition, the system offers continuous and 100 per cent evaporation of liquids (i.e. water and urine) added to bedding. Data shows that for a 6kg piglet, outputs of manure/dung are significantly reduced from 103kg for conventional systems, and 25kg for the Xaletto. Mr Holling said Xaletto is the only housing system that is available for use in closed houses, and it does not require deep straw. In fact, for 10kg of feed, only 1kg of straw is needed, compared to the average of 4kg straw. Investment in the system is slightly lower than conventional systems and running costs are competitive, according to analysis using a typical 2,000-head finisher farm. If required, OLLiges straw robots are also available to automatically place straw where it is needed. Data shows the system produces 20 per cent less NH-free ammonia compared to other straw systems in a warm barn environment. In terms of performance, daily gain was 0.820g/day/piglet using the Xaletto, compared to 0.800g for straw systems and 0.850g for slurry. In addition, a composting period can be added after the growing period of the animal, adding woodchips to dung. Usually, the process takes around six months and can be used as fertiliser for arable farming operations. It is stable for storing until the optimum application time. Or, it can be used for biogas plants, producing 394 litres of methane to 1kg dung. FG

Evans Vanodine provides advice on pre- and post-milking protocols, as well as products and other measures that can help to prevent and manage mastitis on farm. broad range of dairy hygiene chemicals for use and application throughout the milking process, including pre- and post-teat disinfectants which combat mastitis pathogens whilst ensuring good teat condition. For pre-milking, Evans recommends that teats are wiped clean to remove organic soiling, then disinfected with a pre-milking disinfectant, helping to ensure better milk quality. Evans produces an extensive range of pre-dipping teat preparations, such as Pre-Dip and EvaFoam. Post-milking, teats must be dipped or sprayed immediately after removal of the cluster, with a teat disinfectant


Mastitis: How to implement an effective hygiene programme

Mastitis usually occurs as an immune response to bacterial infection and can come from a variety of microbial sources present on farm, or as a result of chemical, mechanical or thermal injury to the animal’s udder, leading to increased numbers of somatic cells and bacteria in milk. A system must be in place to prevent the transmission of bacteria between cows during milking. The implementation of an effective hygiene programme with good machine maintenance, in addition to accurate mastitis records and dry cow therapy, has been demonstrated to reduce incidences of mastitis. Evans Vanodine manufactures a

bulk milk tank and milking machine. The requirements for milk quality are constantly changing, therefore a prevention programme for mastitis is vital in maximising the quantity and quality of milk produced. Evans Vanodine houses three onsite laboratories. Its extensive range is complimented by the hands-on approach offered; including technical support, farm visits and support materials. If you are struggling with elevated bactoscans and high somatic cell counts, visit www.evansvanodine. co.uk or contact the company to find your local distributor. FG

such as the Defra- and VMD-regulated Masocare RTU, which kills mastitis pathogens, whilst ensuring good teat condition. When cleaning machinery after milking, all surfaces must be cleaned to effectively remove all milk residues to prevent the growth of bacteria, which could lead to future milk contamination. Products used must remove protein and fat whilst aiming to control the build-up of milkstone. Evans recommends GP Acid, a fastacting, acid-based descaler to prevent milkstone build up; and Vanosan/ Vanorinse for effective cleaning of the

New tech to boost cow productivity and sustainability Dairy technology company Waikato Milking Systems has announced the launch of an exciting new product to help farmers make better long-term decisions for the care of their herd, and their dairy businesses. Waikato recently launched its new CowTRAQ Collars and TracHQ software in partnership with dairy management technology company, Nedap. Waikato’s GM sales and operations ROW, Jamie Mikkelson, said the CowTRAQ Collars offer complete heat and health monitoring for every cow in the herd. “The collars can identify each cow and keep track of their signs of heat,

position, eating, rumination, standing, lying, walking and inactive behavior 24/7. It provides a precise and complete picture about the fertility, health, well-being and nutritional status of each cow and each herd.” The collars offer farmers a chance to improve in several areas, including reproduction results, increased labour efficiency as well as farm management, to get more productive

and sustainable herds. “Better cow health and condition is also an important area where the collars can make a difference, by detecting health issues earlier,” Jamie said. “That means treatment and recovery can be more effective, fertility can improve and long-term it can reduce mortality rates.” Jamie said the data the collars supply can save on costs and give cows the individual attention they need. “It means farmers can focus resources on the right cows, at the right time, with the correct treatment. It’ll help farmers keep a close eye on the health, comfort and wellbeing of their animals, while increasing production using the same or fewer resources.” Waikato’s TracHQ software translates data captured by the collars into information the operator can understand and easily view on a PC, tablet or smartphone. Everyone working on the farm can have access to real-time information and insights on each cow or herd. “It can generate real-time and

relevant alerts, to-do lists, reports and barn maps to help manage and control the herd,” Jamie said. TracHQ also integrates with farm automation systems and dairy management programs. It can easily connect with the Waikato range of milking point controls, milk indicators, milk meters and milk analytical sensors. “It can also connect with our automated sorting system, to automatically sort animals that are either on heat or have an alert that has been raised against their number.” TracHQ is a modular solution so upgrading to include auto sorting and integration to milking solutions and feeding in the future is simple. It comes with a three-year, 100 per cent replacement warranty, and graded warranty thereafter. Typically, operating life is 8–10 years. Jamie said the new technology will help farmers improve their bottom line by making data-driven decisions. “Together, CowTRAQ and TracHQ give farmers an all-in-one, 24/7 cow management system to help them meet the challenges of operating a modern dairy farm.” FG

Fertilisers & Spreaders The top model in Amazone’s ZG-TS ProfisPlus trailed spreader range has 10,000-litre hopper capacity.

Power on the land The topic of this month’s Power on the Land is fertiliser and slurry application, brought to you by Mike Williams. Farming efficiency has been making impressive progress, and fertiliser spreading is an example of the way accuracy can be achieved by using improved technology. Fertiliser is an expensive input, and accurate application is an essential requirement for achieving maximum benefit in terms of yield, as well as improving factors such as uniformity of crop growth to simplify harvesting plus the ability to control the spread pattern near field boundaries. Accuracy features on some Centerliner series spreaders from Teagle Farm Machinery include Easytronic, using advanced electronic control equipment that constantly checks the spread rate from the hopper, comparing this with the forward speed to monitor the application rate. Easytronic is on the recently introduced Centerliner SXe spreaders, and the SXi specification also has two weigh cells measuring the weight change as fertiliser leaves the hopper. Easytronic can also include a special system for managing the spreader at the headland, and adding a GPS link can add variable rate application to the functions list. There is also an agitator option to reduce blockage risks when applying materials such as grass seed. Teagle Centerliner spreaders

are made in Holland, with up to 3,650-litre hopper capacity, but Teagle also offers the smaller XT series – the only tractor-mounted spreaders currently made in the UK. The entry-level XT20 model has a hopper holding 660 litres and a single disc giving a 12m spread, and the twin-disc XT24 and XT48 spreaders have 675 and 1,350-litre capacity respectively and 12m maximum spread. Features that help to achieve accuracy on the Polaris spreaders from Lemken include the Fertiway system that adjusts the fertiliser drop point on to the spinning discs to alter the spread width while minimising damage to the granules, and the spreading vanes on the discs are based on Lemken’s Epsilon design, offering accuracy over a wide range of spread widths. Special spread control arrangements when working close to field boundaries include the Tribord 3D system with a choice of three spread modes, and Polaris 14 series spreaders are available with Econov using a GPS link, giving spread control over 16 width sections. There are nine Polaris 12 and 14 series models with hopper capacities from 1,500–4,000 litres and with spread widths in the 12–50m range. Lemken spreaders also include the mid-range Tauri models with

36m maximum spread width and up to 3,000-litre hopper size, and there are five of the smaller Spica 8 models holding up to 2,100 litres and offering up to 24m maximum spread. A special feature developed for ZA-M series twin disc spreaders from Amazone is EasySet – an on-board computer that simplifies control from the cab. Functions include push-button operation of the shutter slides, allowing each aperture to be opened or closed while at the

headland, and in a wedge-shaped field the driver can individually activate either the right- or the left-hand side, with lights on the terminal indicating if the shutter slides are open or closed. EasySet can also be used to adjust application rates individually, with the display automatically showing the selected aperture size. Amazone’s ZA-M spreader series is available with 1,000, 1,200 continued over…

A special accuracy feature is Electronic Mass Control (EMC) that adjusts the application rate automatically on a secondby-second basis to maintain the required application rate, which can range between 20–500kg per minute, with left and right hand side rate control available with a GPS link. Also in the mounted spreader range are the smaller MDS models with up to 2,000-litre hopper

capacity and 24m spread maximum width, and a special feature is the availability of versions with spread control adapted for working in orchards and vineyards with up to 50m row spacing. Trailed spreaders from Kuhn include the AGT models with pneumatic boom spreading to 36m maximum, and with the ability to handle a varied range of products including ammonium sulphate and slug pellets. The Axent spreader, with a 9,400-litre hopper, has a centrifugal spreading action up to 50m wide and can spread soil improvement

products as well as mineral fertilisers. With suitable management and equipment, the slurry from farm livestock can make an important contribution to crop nutrition, reducing the cost of purchased fertilisers while also helping to avoid pollution and other problems that can be associated with slurry handling. SlurryKat, based in Northern Ireland, offers a comprehensive range of slurry equipment which it exports to 20 different countries. The range includes pumps and stirrers for dealing with slurry during storage, and there is also a long list of hoses, hose reelers and pipe connectors. The SlurryKat range of tankers offers capacities from 11,000–18,000 litres, and the company offers application equipment to work with the tankers. Recent trends in slurry utilisation include increasing popularity for equipment such as dribble bar systems, trailing shoe applicators and injectors, equipment that can handle large amounts of liquid efficiently while minimising nutrient losses to ensure crop plants receive the maximum benefit.

Fertilisers & Spreaders

New intelligent features on offer

Self-propelled sprayers go on tour The new generation of Condor self-propelled sprayers from Agrifac – the Condor V – will be touring the UK in September alongside the Endurance II 8000L self-propelled. The two giants will be starting in the south at the beginning of the month, before working their way upwards to finish the tour late September towards Perthshire. Supported closely by its dealer network, Agrifac UK plans to make the ‘NEED Farming Tour’ an annual occurrence after the success of the tour introduction in 2019. The Agrifac range of sprayers are renowned for their stability, precision and innovation, the company says. The patented StabiloPlus chassis provides unparalleled stability, with GreenFlowPlus ensuring continuous pressure using the specially designed pump so that there is no

difference in spraying at any point during operation, and no residual liquid left in the tank. The comfortable cab features the EcoTronicPlus control system, which is easy to understand and operate. With options that give a wider track width (WideTrackPlus) and higher ground clearance (ClearancePlus), the tried-and-tested Condor concept can also be used in the most diverse crops. In addition to various possible options and versions, the Condor and Endurance are ready to spray on plant level – ensuring each individual plant receives the required dosage specific to its exact needs, thanks to Agrifac innovations such as AiCPlus (location-specific spraying camera technology) and DynamicDosePlus (individual dosage per nozzle), all of which will be demonstrated during the NEED Farming Tour. FG

The Hardi Navigator is offered with tank sizes of 3,000, 4,000, 5,000 and 6,000-litres, and boom widths from 18–39m. Known for being one of the most durable sprayers on the market, the new ‘intelligent’ features from Hardi offer more than just reliability and efficiency in the field. Navigator intelligent sprayers are equipped with the Hardi SmartCom electronic platform and offer a full Isobus experience, with easy connection to tractors and controllers. The operator gains a more precise application, with control of individual nozzles being just some of the possibilities for the new SmartCom platform. The Hardi AutoNozzleControl system controls the application per individual nozzle. With sections down to 0.5m, an exact application with minimum overlapping leads to chemical savings up to 10 per cent. Well-proven stepper motors of the PrimeFlow system are placed at each nozzle body. In combination with new

AutoNozzleControl software, the highest precision level is reached. Featuring ‘IntelliTrack’ and DynamicFluid4, the Navigator demonstrates a high level of control both with track-steering and chemical regulation. IntelliTrack is a high-end steering drawbar concept combining the advantages of a well-designed chassis with the use of advanced electronics. Easy to connect and operate, IntelliTrack ensures safe tracking, even in the most difficult field conditions. DynamicFluid4 calculates the consequences of the increased RPM and regulates instantly.

machine output at all times. After a facelift, the tried-and-tested ZA-X and ZA-M mounted spreaders now look more like the ZA-V and ZA-TS models. The new compact ZA-X 03 mounted spreader is available in working widths from 10–18m and hopper capacities from 500–1,400-litres. Optional hopper extensions enable the capacity to be increased to a maximum of 1,750-litres. The ZA-M 02 series offers working widths from 10–36 m and covers hopper sizes from 1,000–1,500-litres, which can be increased to up to 3,000-litres by means of extensions with narrow or wide filling openings, depending on the size of the farm. FG

Greater comfort, better precision Boasting a new look, Amazone’s ZA-M 02 and ZA-X 03 mounted spreaders can now be specified with the EasySet 2 in-cab terminal. With EasySet 2, Amazone offers a solution for automatic spread rate regulation at varying forward speeds for the ZA-M and, for the first time, the ZA-X. The size of the apertures are adjusted by automatically setting the shutter position in such a way that the application rate always remains the same. This means that the operator is not forced to maintain a constant forward speed, but can speed up or slow down depending on the size of field and the ground conditions. The

operator has the option of using an X-sensor (counting pulses), a signal cable (transmission of the tractor speed) or a GPS antenna to determine or transmit the speed signal. EasySet 2, in conjunction with the electric shutter control, allows the application rate to be adjusted precisely and on the move, in order to avoid wastage, save costs and protect the environment. The desired application rate is simply entered into the in-cab terminal and this can be

easily increased or reduced from the cab on both sides or either side during the spreading process. Simple entry of the required spread rate in the terminal eliminates the need to leave the tractor cab and make manual adjustments to the setting scales on the rear of the machine. All that is needed is a 12V power connection for the in-cab terminal. Another special feature is the integrated hectare meter, which allows the user to keep an eye on the

Engineered for those long days ahead

Each button on the EasySet 2 operating computer has its own function. This makes operation very simple for the user and, at the same time, extremely comfortable.

Big on features and built to last – Amazone fertiliser spreaders are highly engineered, in fact German engineered, to apply tonne after tonne accurately and reliably. Take the new ProfisPro system - the unique concept of twin weigh cells, tilt sensor and the FlowControl torque measuring system, means that not only is the overall spread rate kept accurate but also that the volume coming out of each disc is correctly maintained - meaning less wastage and better fertiliser utilisation. And on a similar note, the AutoTS border spreading system has been shown in trials to give an improved yield of up to 17% in that first pass around the field - now that’s engineering.

The AutoTS border spreading system generates 17% more yield than other border spreading systems.

Fertilisers & Spreaders

Danish spreader range offers variety of options Keith Rennie Machinery (KRM) offers a comprehensive range of fertiliser spreaders, from Danish manufacturers Bogballe and Bredal. The range extends from the 700-litre (1 x 600kg bag) L15 through to the 15,600 litre (26 x 600kg bag) K165. The Bogballe range is split into L-Line and M-Line. Within the Ls are L15s with spread widths from 6-18m and capacities up to 1,600 litres (two bags) and L20s which will spread to 24m and carry up to 2,000 litres (three bags). The M-Line machines are all capable of 42m spread and break down into M35s (up to 3,750 litres), M45s (up to 4,500 litres) and the world’s biggest mounted spreader, the M60, with a maximum capacity of 5,550 litres. Electronic controls are available across the range, with weigh-cells being available and an increasingly popular option across L20s and the whole M-line range. KRM’s section control system ‘Dynamic Section Control’ works by dividing the spread width into 40 sections: eight main sections with five sub-sections each. Actuators alter the drop-on point independently to each disc whilst also regulating the application rate. Dynamic Section Control is available across the M-Line range. The proportion of ‘top spec’ machines being sold with weigh cells, Dynamic Section Control and GPS increases year on year, as does the proportion being supplied Isobus, KRM says. As you would expect from a supplier specialising in a single product line, a wide

variety of options are available to tailor the machine to your specific requirements – whether that’s a tworow orchard kit, hydraulic drive or a big bag lifter. The Bredal offering is split into the K-Series (for lime and fertiliser) and the F-series (fertiliser only). The F-series includes two mounted models and two trailed models. The mounted F2 has an all-mechanical set up, whilst the F4 has weigh cells and Isobus control as standard. Most of the F4s sold are also supplied with section control and hydraulic drive, and both the F2 and the F4 have a maximum capacity of 4,000 litres. An option for anyone wanting more, the trailed options include the F8 (5,700 litres) and F10 (7,600 litres). Like their mounted stable mate, these models are most commonly supplied with section control. For those requiring more capacity still, the K-Series extends right through to 15,600 litres. K-Series machines can be supplied with the standard spread unit or with the XE widespread system. Here the discs are mounted 6m apart and fed by short transfer belts from the main floor belt. Two versions are available; one for lime up to 30m and one for fertiliser, which can be specified with section control. FG

Impressive performance throughout UK and Ireland Spica



SPREADING SUCCESS. Fertilisation accounts for about a third of the operating costs in arable farming. That’s why the technology used is all the more important to minimise losses and increase both efficacy and precision. Our fertiliser spreaders meet the most stringent demands: they spread highly precisely, save fertiliser in the process and are easy to set up – and above all they support your success! Experience Spica, Tauri and Polaris – fertilising precision in LEMKEN Blue. lemken.com

The product range of fertiliser spreaders from Lemken have been performing well in the UK and Ireland, the company says. The Spica, Tauri and Polaris ranges come with tank volumes from 900–4,000-litres and a broad range of control options, from a basic version through to 100 per cent Isobus. The new fertiliser spreaders meet the most stringent requirements regarding precision of application and efficiency. Comfortable setting options guarantee that fertiliser is applied precisely and economically, comments Lemken UK general manager, Paul Creasy. The Lemken fertiliser spreaders are therefore considered to be high-

quality products which optimally compliment the company’s existing product portfolio in tillage, sowing and crop care. The entry-level model Spica, with tank volumes from 900–2,100 litres and working widths of up to 24m, is ideal for smaller growers. The mid-range Tauri offers a large loading volume of up to 3,000-litres and delivers higher fertilising efficacy through large working widths of up to 36m.

Choosing the right form of nitrogen

New dedicated field trial site in Lincolnshire Omex has expanded its worldwide research and development hubs with a new 5ha dedicated field trial site at an established research facility at Heckington, Lincolnshire. The site was contracted to Omex in 2019 with upwards of 300 farmers, and agronomists expected to visit and see its own winter wheat and spring oat replicated trial plots, as well as ongoing AHDB RB209 trials. With Covid-19 restrictions in place since the start, it will be June this year before small groups can start attending the site for the first time. The site also has polytunnels that are being set up to run large scale horticultural (soft fruit) trials, and a 30-person meeting room on-site can be used to host conferences and demonstrations.

88-99 Ferts and Spreaders.indd 98 21_022_Z_ad_FarmersGuide0721_210x148 v2.indd 1

The replicated winter wheat trials are looking specifically at nitrogen timings, efficacy and efficiency; reduced rate applications; foliar nutrition – especially manganese and magnesium – and the impact that urease and nitrification inhibitors can have on reducing carbon footprints. Further demonstration trials are designed to give visitors a good visual representation of the effects of different inputs on a range of crops. Drought-prone non-irrigated sandy loam soil at the site was deliberately selected because it is not a flagship winter wheat growing area, and is therefore perfect for generating meaningful data from which growers all over the country can learn and benefit. FG

Borealis L.A.T is continuing to support UK farmers with high quality ammonium nitrate and nitrogen sulphur compounds. Mypremian is a premium ammonium nitrate fertiliser perfectly suited to the evergrowing needs of the UK farmer, according to Borealis. Due to its nitric form, growers are able to optimise their yields and maximise returns by retaining the nutrient in the soil, optimising plant uptake regardless of the soil temperature. To complement Mypremian, Borealis offers a selection of nitrogen sulphur grades and straight calcium ammonium nitrate (CAN) under the Mynitras brand. Mynitras products benefit from the same qualities as Mypremian: high bulk density, optimised particle size, hardness of granule and resistance to caking. UK and Ireland sales manager, Tom Holt, states: “Choosing the right form of nitrogen is

such an important consideration. The golden rules of using the right product at the right dose and at the right time are key in order to achieve maximum yields and quality crops. “Mypremian and Mynitras are perfectly suited to meet UK growers’ demands. We have carried out extensive testing on the efficiency of all our granular nitrogen products at spreading widths of 36m and beyond, and the results are fantastic. Excellent CVs are recorded even in less clement conditions.” Mypremian and Mynitras are available throughout the UK via a network of strategically selected distributors all year round. FG

“I never thought we could ever be this accurate applying bagged fertilisers through a spinning disc spreader,” says Gareth Bennett.

Kverneland CL Geospread carries three hopper extensions, and benefits from auto start-stop and auto section control.

Affordable accuracy At Woodseaves near Market Drayton, Shropshire, HK & SB Bennett and Sons has embraced technology to improve the accuracy of fertiliser spreading at its 450-acre, 240-cow mixed farm. “We’re looking to make the most of every kilo of fertiliser we buy,” explains Gareth Bennett, who runs the Kverneland CL Geospread linked to an IsoMatch Global receiver, IsoMatch Inline lightbar and Tellus GO terminal in the cab of his metallicorange Kubota M7152 tractor. He has high praise for the spreader’s auto start-stop and auto section control, which switches the spreader on and off, based on where it has travelled, to

cleverly manage overlaps in any shape field. “The spreader is so clever that we can now apply fertilisers as accurately and efficiently on grassland without tramlines, as we can running through cereal crops with 24m tramlines,” Gareth says. “With section control creating 2m working widths, our cereal crops and grassland has never been better fed. There’s no waste – it all goes exactly where you want it.”

Gareth reckons typical forward speeds of 18kph across cereal crops and up to 21kph on grassland are what contribute to output and efficiency across the farm. “We’ve gained more output and higher accuracy,” he says. “It’s a truly impressive piece of kit, that has also created opportunities to carry out contract spreading for several neighbouring farms. “This helps to offset the investment in technology, and also

improve their fertiliser usage too.” Supplied by Shrewsburybased Battlefield Machinery, the spreader is equipped with three hopper extensions, and through its integration with technology has created full traceability with field records and fertiliser applications. “The only way we could apply fertilisers any more accurately than this, would be to apply everything as a liquid, through the sprayer,” he says. “And I don’t think we’d gain anything from doing that. This way, we can also spray and spread separately, if required.” FG

Spreader range improvements boost volume and outputs

Mk5 Ktwo Bio 1600.

Ktwo’s Bio range of rear discharge muck spreaders with twin horizontal beaters is designed with the most accurate of applications in mind – ideal for spreading higher value products. The Ktwo Evo range of rear discharge muck spreaders with twin vertical beaters is designed to cope with the most demanding conditions, whilst providing extra accuracy and the highest outputs available. The improved Mk5 versions of the Ktwo Bio and Ktwo Evo now have a flared body throughout, giving

increased volume capacity. By starting to taper from the floor, it acts as a funnel to help move materials down to the chains, increasing volume and allowing for easier emptying with less bridging. The new ranges include a timed front roller with integral cleaning scrapers, giving positive engagement

with the chain and ensuring the chains remain times and provide a consistent flow of material. Not only does the new design increase volume and ease of emptying, Mk5s come with a host of smaller improvements based on customer feedback – including hardened spinner paddles. New Ktwo Evos also have Hardox

rotor bases with sweeper bars. The versatile and popular Ktwo Duo Mk6 range of rear discharge muck spreaders with twin vertical beaters has already had the improvements to the body design, which have been well received by farmers and contractors who saw improved outputs. FG

Vegetable & Root Crop Production

Producer cuts water usage by 90 per cent with turnkey solution Cutting waste water

Over the past year, Welsh company Puffin Produce has been able to improve efficiency, increase capacity and reduce utility costs and environmental impact – thanks to a radical restructuring of its factory. Innovative thinking and automation have helped Puffin Produce – the largest supplier of Welsh produce in Wales – to become one of the greenest fresh produce suppliers in the UK. In the last year, the business has seen its water usage reduce by 90 per cent and the electricity used to wash and polish its potatoes decrease by 40 per cent. The impressive savings are due to a radical restructuring of its Withybush factory, which has seen four production lines replaced with two state-of-the-art lines.

Improved efficiency and throughput Puffin has worked with vegetable handling equipment specialists Haith Group since the early 2000s and in 2016, Huw Thomas, managing director at Puffin, asked Haith Group’s sales director, Duane Hill, to look at

how the company could reduce its impact on the environment. Like many of the challenges faced by Haith, the turnkey solution required the input of the company’s experienced design team and sales engineers. “Since we installed the original lines back in 2010, we have invested significantly in research and development to make our machines the most efficient and cost-effective on the market,” says Duane. “The progress we have made in efficiency improvements allowed us to remove the four lines from Puffin’s factory and replace them with two, and doing so not only reduced their operating costs; it also increased their throughput!” Everything on the new Haith lines is automated, from receiving and grading through to progress storage and packing.

Before the new lines were installed, none of the water used in the factory was recycled. All of the discharge water was removed from the site by tankers. Today, very little water leaves the site, and 90 per cent of the water used to wash the produce is recycled. The remaining fraction has further treatment prior to discharge, with the solids being incorporated into a dry cake that can be returned to land. After being received and any stones removed, the crop enters Haith’s Self-Cleaning Washer, which features the company’s unique Clean-In-Place (CIP) functionality. This allows Puffin to programme when the washer is cleaned by a dosage system, which prevents bacteria from building up. Puffin can set the time at which the cleaning process takes place – at the end of a shift, for example. The Self-Cleaning Washer discharges the wastewater onto a course screen, which removes any large particles, skin, haulm and foreign objects. The waste water is pumped to a finer screen, which sits above a balance tank, where a mixer keeps solid matter in suspension. “We start the primary settlement process in the system by pumping the soil laden water through a serpentine flocculator,” says technical sales manager Paul Ramplin. This promotes agglomeration of the solids before they report into the Haith Lamella settlement tank. The now flocculated solids accumulate at the bottom of the settlement tank, where an automatic monitoring system starts a slurry removal pump at predetermined setpoints. The slurry is pumped from the Haith Lamella into a storage tank that is continuously mixed. A pressure pump feeds the

concentrated sludge to a multichamber filter press; this is where dewatering accrues and creates a dry soil cake. All treated water from the Lamella tank is returned to Haith’s washers. The 10 per cent that cannot be recycled passes through a final biological treatment process, before being discharged into the natural watercourse. Haith also aided Puffin by designing all the drainage and the recycled water pumping system to and from the factory.

Lowering costs, helping the planet “I think it is fair to say that Puffin has one of the most advanced potato process systems in the UK,” continues Duane. “And by including all-electric drives and IE3 motors on the RotaTip TE box tippers, the Supa-Flume de-stoner and polishers, we have reduced Puffin’s electricity usage too. At the same time, thanks to how we have developed and improved the efficiencies of our machines, we have also given Puffin the ability to increase throughput by over 10 tonnes per hour.” Huw Thomas is delighted with how Haith’s new line has transformed operations. “Improving the efficiency of a factory while at the same time lowering operating costs and reducing the impact on the environment is something a lot of businesses are trying to achieve. At Puffin Produce, though, thanks to our close working relationship with Haith and their talented team, we have been able to achieve that. It is fantastic that we can operate more efficiently, have the capacity to handle even more produce in the future and can lower both our utility costs and impact on the environment.” FG

From single machines through to complete turnkey installations, Haith has unrivalled experience and expertise in designing and installing vegetable handling solutions.

Sustainable sprout control Biox-M is a well-established, highly effective and sustainable treatment to control sprouting in potatoes in store, and is in widespread use in the UK and on the continent on crops destined for both fresh and processing markets. Although approved for use in the UK in 2012, the 2020 harvest season was the first to have seen widespread adoption of Biox-M as the principal product available for sprout control in this country. And, understandably, much of the immediate focus for new users has been on store management, efficacy and cost. Growers, storekeepers and end-user customers have been on

a steep learning curve to ensure that they get the best from an unfamiliar product, which requires a very different approach to store management. However, this significant change to sprout control is not taking place in a vacuum. At the same time, British farm support is being turned on its head, with a shift to reward farmers for the delivery of public

goods – many of which have a sustainability angle. And the world is moving, perhaps rather slowly, to address the challenges of climate change and to understand the role that farming and the management of farmland has to play in climate change mitigation. Biox-M is very much part of the wider sustainability toolbox, which customers and consumers expect growers to consider. Biox-M comes from a naturallyoccurring perennial crop, spearmint (Mentha spicata), grown in a number

of countries around the world – India, China and the US are large exporters. Carbon is sequestered in the crop and in the soil (perennial crops sequester carbon in soil much more effectively than annual crops). Spearmint oil is extracted by a simple process of steam distillation, used to extract many essential oils. To deliver a uniform product with a minimum level of carvone, the oil is blended to produce Biox-M. There is no synthetic, persistent or harmful chemistry involved. FG

The Biox-M facts: • • • • • • • • •

A naturally-occurring product, in widespread use in the food industry Approved for use on organic potato crops Has no harvest interval or MRL Does not leave persistent residues in the fabric of stores and boxes used for storage Suitable for use in stores which may subsequently be used for the storage of other crops or seed potatoes Effective at higher storage temperatures, reducing the risk of acrylamide development on processing Sequesters carbon during growth, removing 1t of CO2 for every 1,000t of potatoes treated Should be a component of the sustainability plan for every farm and every customer; effectively carbon neutral Biox-M is the natural and sustainable sprout control for potatoes.

Robust chemistry critical to managing blight in season

Resistance management can be achieved by both rotating active ingredients such as propamocarb with other fungicide groups, and by using mancozeb as a multisite partner. These are both feasible solutions in 2021, however with the impending potential loss of mancozeb, the interchanging of a range of alternative single site actives

will be an increasingly important factor in the programme. Proxanil, which is a semi-systemic fungicide with translaminar effects, combining propamocarb with cymoxanil, fits well into mid-season programmes. The mobility of these two active ingredients, with systemic activity from propamocarb, and translaminar effect of cymoxanil,

three different resistance groups. Given the complexities and pressures involved with controlling this yield robbing disease, technologies can help to give additional understanding when selecting products and actives and timing applications. Available for android or iOS devices, UPL’s free Blight app can be used by growers to get high resolution forecasts for a postcode or for different individual fields. The app gives Hutton Criteria and Smith periods, as well as Leaf Wetness Duration and wind speed information to provide a comprehensive forecast of conditions which favour infection. FG Mean % Foliar Blight Control (A2 Blue 13 + A1 Pink 6) seen when adding PROXANIL to a range of primary products including Revus, Ranman Top, Shirlan and Gachinko (average of trials between 2014 and 2019)

% Blight Control

With warm weather following ample rainfall, rapid haulm growth has ensued, and blight pressure is generally on the increase. Careful selection of remaining actives to manage blight and the timing of application will help in the resistance battle, and ensure effective programmes.  

help to ensure good coverage when the canopy is growing rapidly towards maturity. As well as being mobile, propamocarb offers premium antisporulant activity with no currently known resistance. This makes the combination a powerful pairing, as cymoxanil acts rapidly to provide a strong curative effect (kickback) in the first 48 hours after application, and an ongoing protectant control for around two further days.   The use of Proxanil early in the season before canopy growth is complete provides strong control against early infections of blight strains such as 37_A2. Strains like this require the most robust combinations to maintain control.  Mixes with actives such as mandipropamid (FRAG group 40), cyazofamid or amisulbrom (both group 21) have been shown in UK trials to give more robust control than the contact fungicides used alone, with Proxanil adding 10–15 per cent in UPL Europe’s trials from 2014–2019. Just as importantly, these combinations help manage resistance by combining actives from

Vegetable & Root Crop Production Revolutionising the way vegetables are harvested

Weed control range continues to grow Edwards Farm Machinery’s range of weed control equipment includes in-house manufactured non-steered, manually steered and cameraguided inter-row cultivators with working widths of up to 8m – as well as imported equipment including Comeb inter-row rotavators, Bartschi brush weeders and Oliver Agro precision weeder range. EFM’s front- or rear-mounted, steered or un-steered inter-row cultivators come with a flexible range of standard A and L blades and can be further specified with finger weeders, finger rakes, and, new for 2021, band spraying. There are also options for overthe-row spraying and a weed-wiper for the front. The Comeb inter-row rotavator can be configured with rotor

widths and spacing as per most vegetable crops and is entirely suitable for the worst-case scenario in weed control. The Bartschi brush weeder can be set up for the full range of growing spacings and crops, and is very effective at clearing young weeds when used as part of your early weed control program. Regarding the large Oliver Agro range of mechanical weeders, the Colibri Cultivator works extremely shallow to limit crop disturbance, and with a series of driven discs, breaks the crust and pulls young weeds from the ground. Coupled with the EFM Camera Guidance System, these machines can comfortably hold accuracy in between rows of plants drilled only 5cm apart. FG

With food production being more important than ever and labour shortages having a significant impact on vegetable and root crop growers across the UK, it might be time for a new harvesting solution. Specialist vegetable machinery from Asa-Lift and Grimme UK could revolutionise how your crop is currently harvested, Grimme reckons. With this in mind, Grimme will be running an extensive range of demonstration machinery for vegetables in 2021, and this means growers will be able to try these innovative solutions for themselves in their own conditions. Starting with Grimme’s new WV vegetable windrower, which has had a huge amount of interest since it was announced in early 2021, this simple but highly effective machine will be set up to windrow onions in combination with the new onion topper from Asa-Lift.

Plus, even more of the latest vegetable technology will be available later in the year when Grimme will also have a demo cabbage harvester with a completely redesigned and improved intake for growers to try. Also, innovative handing solutions will be available to demo like the Grimme CleanLoader and a mobile washer from the company’s friends at Haith. No matter the challenge, Asa-Lift and Grimme say they can work with you to develop solutions for your crop and your harvesting requirements. Cabbage, onions, fennel, leeks, spring onions, celery and carrots are just some of the crops that Asa-Lift has designed laboursaving solutions for already. FG

Separator delivers increased capacity for East Lothian farm

Farm manager Graham Knottenbelt says he has been impressed by the capacity gains and cost savings brought by a Standen UniPlus Separator, as well as the machine’s reliability and ease of use. Luffness Mains farm took delivery this year of a Standen UniPlus Stone and Clod Separator. It replaced two starweb combination destoners the farm had previously used to prepare the land for planting 200 acres of main crop and 200 acres of salad potatoes and carrots.

Farm manager Graham said: “Moving from two machines to one seems counterintuitive but swapping to the Standen model has in fact increased capacity for us. “The UniPlus is bombproof – it is user friendly and once in the field it just keeps going. It has proven to be

so reliable that we have not yet had a single breakdown. “It is a simple machine but is essentially two destoners in one. The star element does the majority of the job but is backed up by web separation which leaves a very clean bed. Not only have we increased

capacity but we have also made cost savings as we don’t have to run two rigs, we are saving one man and one tractor. We are really impressed.” The Standen machine features 10 rows of 320mm diameter Duropol stars, which are arranged in an Actiflow configuration – a patented system that effectively moves the soil away from the sides and back again through the machine to maximise the separation area. The stars last up to three times longer than competitors’ machines, Standen says. The feed into the machine is via large serrated discs and a smooth intake roller which eliminates small stones dropping into the bottom of the bed. This is assisted by the fitting of optional in-fill rings on the first five rows of stars. The Underweb starts after the fifth row of stars and continues up to the cross conveyor, which gives a double separation effect to further boost output. Graham runs a 36mm web for potatoes, then changes the Underweb to a 28mm for carrots. This is a 10-minute operation which means he can change from one crop to another very quickly, and still maintain good quality beds for both crops. FG

Vegetable & Root Crop Production Destoner upgrades get seal of approval

Basis of optimum crop establishment Lemken offers a range of seedbed preparation machinery especially for root crops. The SystemKompaktor and Korund have versatile equipment options that fulfil all arable farming requirements associated with perfect seedbed preparation. “An ideal seed bed forms the basis of optimum crop development,” explains Lemken UK general manager, Paul Creasy. “The cultivated soil should be well levelled, and uniformly tilled across the entire implement width and working depth. The SystemKompaktor and Korund generate the best conditions to achieve this.” Compared to PTO-driven machines, passive seedbed

combinations can often deliver a higher output with reduced operational costs. They are becoming particularly common when preparing seedbeds for maize and root crops. System-Kompaktor is available in working widths of 3–12m. The machine has many options in terms of tine and roller choices to ensure the machine works in all soil conditions. With two hydraulically-adjustable soil levelling boards available in machine specifications, these ensure soil is presented level to the final crosskill reconsolidating roller. The Korund seedbed combination stands out through its excellent levelling, loosening and crumbling of the soil with high acreage performance. The implement’s particular strengths shine in the professional cultivation of maize and root crops as the large range of available tine sections includes the right solution for any application. The Lemken Korund is available in mounted form only. A rigid model is available with a 3m width and hydraulic folding versions offer 4.5, 6, 7.5 and 9m working widths. FG

This spring, East Anglian manufacturer CTM Root Crop Systems trialled a number of upgrades to its CTM Rockstar destoner, showing the results with a series of exclusive demonstrations with existing Rockstar customers. Operators said the design improvements concentrated on soil intake and a new design share bar with an increased digging depth of a further 90mm, led to improvements of over 75 per cent. This, together with new side outer wear plates and greatly increased side clearance, has prevented any disturbance of existing stones and debris already separated from being moved. In turn, these changes have provided maximum graded soil produced within an improved consistent depth of bed. Other improvements include improved intake disc geometry and adjustment, which has greatly reduced stone jamming. New increased clearance on depth roller

offers improved depth control and a single drawbar-mounted parking foot aids quicker unhitching. Karl Arndt of selling agent KA Agricultural Machinery said, in comparison with older models which have been performing well with professional operators: “These clients have claimed they expect to see a much lower running cost and far greater up time without stoppages. The new front end and share bar is a 100 per cent improvement, both in soil flow and a greater output has been noticeable – very impressive.” The improvements will be made to all future new CTM Rockstars in time for next year’s production.

Vegetable & Root Crop Production Arable farmer saves costs with plastic grading screens Perthshire potato grower Alan Smith says switching to plastic-coated grading screens has proved to be far more cost-effective for the 1,200-acre potato enterprise, Peter C Grewer Potatoes Ltd. Compared to metal or rubber screens, if the plastic is damaged it can be easily repaired on the farm, rather than having to be replaced, he explains. The screens’ modular construction means plastic links, side pieces and clips can be replaced as single units, and rods can be reused or repaired if needed, all using parts supplied by Hub4Parts.

Norfolk-based Hub4Parts exclusively produces the plastic screens, which MD Andy Hubble says are fast becoming a popular choice among produce handlers, owing to their lighter construction, gentle handling, hard-wearing nature and ease of repair. On average, they have twice the lifespan of comparable products. Alan began working with Hub4Parts when it launched in 2016, taking over as the supplier of Herbert Machinery spare parts when the manufacturer ceased production – a service Alan says “we would have been lost without because we needed to keep our existing machinery going”. Commenting on the service from Hub4Parts, Alan says: “The products are good quality, the service is good, and they have all the details on the machinery to be able to supply the parts. And we can get Andy on the phone anytime, even weekends or evenings if needed.” FG

Tungsten carbide precision drill coulters For years, J.J. Metcalfe & Son has taken in new or used sugar beet coulters for tungsten carbide application, extending the life of the coulters by up to six times in comparison to steel alone. The durability of tungsten carbide minimises down time and the hard-wearing edge enables the coulter to stay the same shape throughout its long working life. This ensures the part is providing excellent performance throughout its working life and creates a consistent crop across the entire field. The precise, V-shaped track left by the sharp cutting edge of the tungsten carbide helps trap the seeds, stopping them rolling

and preventing erratic spacing. This shaped hollow also provides good seed to soil contact, leading to excellent germination. As this service has proved increasingly popular year after year, J.J. Metcalfe & Son has now designed and produced its own tungsten carbide tipped coulters to retrofit Kleine, Monopil and Monopil Mulch. This development means customers will no longer have to wait whilst their coulters go through the timeconsuming processes needed to fit the tungsten carbide. For those using different varieties of coulters or herb and vegetable coulters, J.J. Metcalfe & Son still offers the tungsten carbide application service. FG

Vegetable & Root Crop Production Separator sales see a boost in an uncertain year

Mobile grader in demand for harvest 2021 Tong Engineering has reported continued record demand for its renowned Caretaker mobile grader in the UK and overseas. With vegetable growers and processors finalising specifications for the popular Caretaker in time for harvest 2021, sales manager Nick Woodcock says: “We are delighted that this year continues to see the latest advancements in our Caretaker grader coming to the fore as growers ensure they are prepared for this year’s harvest, whatever the weather! “Our Auto-Touch HMI Pro-Series control features make set-up and control of the Caretaker exceptionally easy. Customers are looking to process crop faster, and often need to use the machine to carefully handle a variety of roots crops. The Caretaker maximises throughput, whilst the advanced control system

allows customers to quickly and easily switch between different crops and cleaning conditions at the touch of a button.” The Caretaker also offers significant labour savings too, with the unrivalled cleaning capabilities of the EasyClean separator ensuring very effective removal of soil and haulm at high capacities. There are now a number of optical sorting solutions that are increasingly replacing traditional manual inspection. “We are dedicated to manufacturing the most advanced, custom-built grading equipment with intelligent controls, minimal maintenance and maximum productivity in mind. The Caretaker is designed to perform in the most demanding handling situations, and can be built to suit all throughput requirements,” concludes Nick. FG

This year has focused growers’ minds on labour reduction, partly due to Brexit, but also a drive towards efficiency around harvest. While Scotts Precision Manufacturing Ltd says it has always enjoyed strong sales of its separator in new graders and processing lines, this year has seen a stepped increase in retrofitted units. There are still a large number of older grading lines running a variety of Star roller cleaners and coil units. These are often past their wear life and offer poor cleaning in comparison to the latest generation of the Evolution separator. Scotts is already into double figures of these upgrades, ranging from 3ft-wide machines approaching 30 years old, to very modern, high capacity 8ft mobile graders. Scotts offers a

price point to suit most pockets but really, it’s all about the performance. The largest version (2.9m wide by 10 pairs of rollers) can process a crop containing 50 per cent or more soil and clod up to 80, or even 90t/hour. Most of this work is done at Scotts’ Boston premises, but over time, more and more of its dealers are taking this on and supporting the product throughout the harvesting season. Scotts is working to produce a series of tutorial videos, which will be made freely available online to help operators, service technicians and sales people. FG

Vegetable & Root Crop Production Potato grower praises new automatic bagging system

Grower expands sweet potato business thanks to storage solution Having dramatically increased its sweet potato business volumes with one of the UK’s largest supermarkets, Branston Limited needed bespoke facilities to meet the demand. The business embarked upon a project to convert two existing Passive Up Flow (PUF) stores that were used for long-term storage of potatoes to make them suitable for storage of sweet potatoes. One of the UK’s biggest buyers, growers, distributors and marketers of fresh potatoes – handling around 350,000t/year – Branston has sites in Lincoln, Scotland, and the South West. It supplies some of the largest retail, wholesale, and food manufacturing customers in the UK. JD Cooling Group has worked with customers that import sweet

potatoes for many years, gaining vast amounts of experience in the field. Sweet potato storage presents very different challenges compared with the traditional UK-grown potato, so in order to assist Branston, JD Cooling needed to consider various aspects such as: where the sweet potatoes were being imported from, the type of container/packaging they were being shipped in, and the length of time for which the product would need to be stored. Following the handover of the new stores, Branston has commented that the “stores are absolutely superb”, with their own suppliers also stating that “amazing results are being seen due to the stores’ fantastic performance”. FG

Nene Transport owner and founder, Gareth Franklin, wanted to automate his potato bagging system to provide a reliable supply chain of chipping potatoes to an ever-increasing customer base. After visiting other local farmers, he contacted Nick Cesare, owner and founder of Pace Mechanical Handling Ltd in Spalding. Pace has been a family-run business for 25 years and was able to provide a top-quality product to suit Gareth’s budget.   Following a visit to the Pace factory and a site visit from Mr Cesare, they decided on a combination of new and reconditioned equipment. A fully automatic system was supplied consisting of paper sack presenter, in bag weigher, stitcher line, and a twin cell Fanuc robot palletiser. Gareth says: “I went to Nick as I knew I would get a proper job done from start to installation, without cutting corners and a fair price. I would recommend Nick and Pace to anyone who is looking for bagging and weighing and palletising equipment.”

Pace Mechanical, which is celebrating its 25th anniversary, manufactures all equipment inhouse. A newly-purchased 200t press brake bends the laser cut parts, and there is a choice of Fanuc (pictured), Motoman and Kawasaki robots. Nick says the company is “flat out” with orders and a new building was erected last year to help get the jobs done. FG

Farm Diversification

Bell tents at Charisworth Farm, Dorset.

Dan Yates.

Castle Howard wild side camping.

Top tips for quick and easy diversification With the sun now set on the annual Spanish exodus – for the time being at least – the British countryside is fast becoming the holiday destination of choice, so farms are looking to diversify into holiday accommodation. Pitchup.com founder Dan Yates offered Farmers Guide his top tips. Of all the sectors that stand to gain from staycations being the primary holiday of choice, agriculture soars high above the rest. Space is at a premium, as the fields, lanes, valleys, and dales will soon be full of lockdown-weary travellers eager to flee the rat race for a fortnight or so. But how do farmers benefit from this ripe and harvestable crop? Diversification, after all, takes ideas, investment, time, and management. It is, by definition, not farming. It’s the thing you’ve probably had in the back of your mind for ages, convinced there is some value to it if only you had time to give it some thought, and it was easy. Well, the good news is, it is. The better news is that Pitchup.com is here to help.

Hassle-free diversification As Europe’s largest outdoor accommodation provider, we have helped hundreds of working farms set up temporary campsites to take advantage of the tourism boom. Collectively, those campsites have generated millions of pounds for the farmers who run them and for the wider rural economy, as well as giving visitors access to some of Britain’s most peaceful and serene beauty spots. In fact, pop-up sites have proved so popular that one farm in Cumbria achieved £50,000 and 600 bookings in its first week online, and many more have reported similar amounts. So, we know a thing or two about diversifying into the agritourism market. Here are our top tips to help you salvage something positive from the Covid pandemic that has kept us all locked up for months:

1. Planning permission is not always necessary. Setting up a campsite requires planning permission, right? Or at least change of use? This is a common misconception. Temporary campsites fall under Permitted Development Rights (PDR) which cover changes to land or buildings that are deemed to have planning permission already. Until last year, landowners were able to set up temporary campsites for 28 days without a planning application. But in an effort to boost the rural economy, that was extended to 56 days last year, which is in place until the end of 2021. However, our Carry On Camping campaign is asking the government to extend this further, to enable rural businesses to recover from the pandemic. So, there’s still plenty of time to set up a pop-up campsite for the busy summer holidays. 2. You don’t need to invest loads in infrastructure. Yes, there are campsites that have luxury showers and toilets, facilities to wash clothes, a well-stocked on-site shop, and even a restaurant or café for those campers who don’t want to cook on a gas stove or BBQ. But, do you need those? Not at all. Many campers just want to get away and will forsake such luxuries – even shun them – for the peace and quiet of the countryside. Large, popular campsites are not everyone’s cup of tea just like not everyone loves a beach resort. At a minimum, you need to provide clean toilets and running water. If you want to go one step further, hire a shower block (which are very available at the moment due to the

number of events still not going ahead) and your site will soon be full of very happy campers. 3. Make the best of your surroundings. Are there any areas of your farm you can make a feature of? For example, many farms we work with have small copses dotted around which offer a wilder camping experience. These are loved by visitors for the privacy and feeling of seclusion they provide. Families with children might want to learn more about the workings of the farm itself, so choosing a field where they can watch livestock graze is often a nice touch. Streams, rivers, and lakes also make for serene backdrops, and hill farms often afford the most spectacular views across open country. So, if you have these on your land, think about creating a feature of them. 4. Embrace your guests (although not literally!) One of the biggest concerns that farmers have about setting up a campsite is having people they don’t know on their land. But in the vast majority of cases, this is entirely misplaced. Most people stay on farm campsites to relax and get away from their day-to-day routine, so make the perfect guests. And in the wake of more than a year of lockdown, don’t underestimate the prospect of meeting new people and making new friends yourself. You may be surprised at how much you enjoy having people around again. 5. Let Pitchup.com manage your bookings. Don’t be daunted by the prospect of managing bookings – we can take care of that for you. Once you’ve set up your campsite, simply register with us and we will market it, manage your bookings and even take payment if you wish, leaving you with nothing to do except make sure your guests have the most relaxing break they can.

Farm Diversification

Diversification can be rewarding, but professional advice is critical The loss of the Basic Payment Scheme will threaten farms which are slow to adapt, but progressive businesses will see opportunities to expand, diversify and thrive, according to Ashley Smith of agricultural accountancy firm, Larking Gowen. Diversification can take many forms and be on as small or large a scale as you choose. It provides valuable additional income, which is often spread more evenly throughout the year than farming income, but planning and timely professional advice are critical to avoid potential pitfalls or costly mistakes. Property rental is something many farmers have the resources to do, and can utilise empty cottages or disused buildings to generate income whilst building asset values. With more people opting to holiday in the UK, tourism could provide a profitable option. A camping, caravan or ‘glamping’ site, off-road activity centre, or opening the farm to paying visitors, can be lucrative. Glamping sites require minimal facilities and can generate £75–120/ night, so a small field with good access could be very profitable. Organic farming is another option, or you may decide to invest in contract farming to extend an existing enterprise. Obtaining objective, professional advice, setting out the legal structure/agreement, and accounting for planning costs/business rates from the outset are imperative. Understanding how income is taxed and the impact on capital taxes, as well as the complexities of VAT, will also ensure that your new venture gets off on the right foot.

Holiday lets help future-proof Norfolk farming business The Sayer family has farmed at Sparham Hall for over 100 years, current owners Charles and Fiona having lived there since 1978. The farm

focuses heavily on the environment and recently transformed traditional barns into luxurious, selfcatering holiday lets. Their daughter, Charlotte, was instrumental in, and manages, the new enterprise. “The shift in government support and the changing climate is making life difficult for farmers, so we considered how we could ‘sell’ direct to the public,” Charles states. “Sparham Hall Farm enjoys a wonderful setting in the Wensum Valley so we assessed what could be done with buildings not used since the dairy herd was disbanded in the 1950s. The disused buildings were costing money to maintain, so had to be taken down or put to another use. “In 2015, we converted former stables into a home for Charlotte, her husband Tom, and their children. That worked well, we stayed within budget and learned so much, so felt that holiday lets were a realistic option. “To minimise costs, we focused on singlestorey buildings which were in the best condition and required the least work. Charlotte and Tom’s children have additional needs, so they know first-hand how hard holidays for such families can be. All our holiday lets are SEND-friendly, the twobedroom unit being wheelchair accessible. “To minimise costs and reflect the buildings’ heritage we used materials reclaimed from the site wherever possible and included features which reflect the area’s character. Our holiday lets are worth around four times the cost of conversion and will increase in value, so eventually we will consider utilising the other buildings.”

Jeremy Buxton.

Diversification boosts family farm’s income Jeremy Buxton, former TV presenter and executive producer of Eurosport 2, operates R.S. Buxton & Partners’ 400-acre Eves Hill Farm at Booton with parents Robert and Rita. Since returning home in 2012, aged 37, he has moved away from commodity crops to speciality products which are marketed locally, less pricesensitive and generate higher margins – an approach endorsed by Larking Gowen, the farm’s accountants. “Small farms cannot compete with large-scale commodity producers, so my focus is on building our brand, fulfilling niche markets, supplying customers directly and diversifying. Today, we breed native pedigree Poll Hereford cattle and have a commercial suckler herd, as well as growing spring barley, winter wheat and OSR. “Recently, we added a poultry enterprise as part of a transition from conventional to regenerative farming. Free-ranging laying hens follow our cattle, which we mob graze across the farm, and herbal leys have been integrated into the arable rotation. Our plan is to finish all young stock and sell direct to end users who want a constant supply of prime-quality meat, value provenance, low food miles and sustainability.” Keen to develop agritourism, over the last four years Jeremy and his wife Kathryn have established an affordable Camping & Caravanning Club-approved adults-only campsite, and in 2019, the couple started a new venture with glamping bell tents and glamping cabins, which provide a fabulous level of luxury combined with a sensational, tranquil location.

Farm Diversification How ‘super’ is the super deduction Capital Allowance? Graham Page (pictured), agricultural partner at Ensors Chartered Accountants, reports. Diversified rural enterprises that operate through limited companies will now be able to take advantage of a new tax relief that allows companies to claim £130 of tax allowance on every £100 spent on qualifying plant and machinery expenditure – with no upper limit on the amount of claim up until 31st March 2023. A company paying corporation tax at the rate of 19 per cent will achieve £25 of tax reduction for every £100 spent for the tax year of expenditure. Unfortunately, the super deduction is not available for diversified enterprises that are not run through companies.

Although, these businesses will still be able to take advantage of the Annual Investment Allowance (AIA) that gives 100 per cent tax relief on up to £1m of expenditure until 31st December 2021, when the allowance is scheduled to drop down to £200,000. Among the pitfalls of the super deduction, it only relates to expenditure on new and unused equipment. Purchases of second-hand kit do not qualify but these can still benefit from AIA. In addition, when an asset that has been subject to a super deduction claim is subsequently disposed, 130 per cent of the proceeds are then taxed and with corporation tax rates expected to increase, the tax costs on disposal could be significant. FG

Self-storage offers low input, high value diversification With the phase-out of direct payments and rising costs, making the best use of resources and diversifying to bring in extra revenue has never been more important. In light of this, a growing number of farmers are making use of spare buildings or land to offer self-storage and small commercial units to local people and businesses. Cheshire-based AIE Construction has been seeing an increase in the number of farmers seeking its services to help them cash in on this burgeoning industry – worth £766 million in 2019 – by developing and converting their unused land and buildings into rental units. Over the years, AIE Construction

has assisted many of its customers in completing full commercial projects. This includes creating site concepts, securing planning permission and liaising with building control, as well as supplying, erecting and completing ground works on the buildings themselves. AIE Construction prides itself in offering a turnkey service to customers, with a dedicated and enthusiastic team to ensure concepts are made into a reality, on time and on budget. As a relatively low investment, low maintenance, but lucrative business, self-storage and commercial development is an attractive prospect for farmers who are actively seeking diversification options.

Revolutionary mud control company goes from strength to strength Mudcontrol was established in the UK in 2017, supplying high quality, heavy duty, 100 per cent recycled plastic products. Now, the revolutionary product is sold in over 40 countries worldwide and has proved highly popular with UK farmers. The small team of Kerry and James at Mudcontrol concentrates on providing great customer service as well as great products, with no minimum order – no order is too big or too small. “Our Facebook community is very active, with customers past and present sending us photos, videos and stories of their Mudcontrol projects,” says James Trembecki, UK sales. “We have continuous 5* reviews, and a huge proportion of our business is repeat custom. Our biggest problem has been keeping up with demand, because the manufacturer couldn’t make slabs fast enough to keep up with our sales – we sold over 9 acres of Mudcontrol slabs last year and are expecting sales to double again this year.” While the company specialises in the ground-breaking Mudcontrol

slab – which has revolutionised mud control in the UK, and is now sold in over 40 countries worldwide – it also supplies 100 per cent recycled plastic fencing and associated products.

They require minimal or no ground preparation – they are the sub-base and base in one. “The fencing products are strong and reliable, they won’t rot and are not palatable, so livestock usually leave them alone, and they won’t ever need painting or treating. They can be nailed, stapled, screwed into, sawn and installed (by machine or by hand) in the same way a wooden post can,

with no maintenance required,” states Mr Trembecki. All products have a solid 20-year manufacturer’s warranty. “Mudcontrol slabs are used to arrest mud in a huge selection of applications – if you need instant, DIY, porous, removable, reusable hardstanding for anything from a pygmy goat to a bull elephant, we can help. “They require minimal or no ground preparation – they are the sub-base and base in one, you just need to remove any stones, hard lumps, or voids before laying them straight onto the mud/soil/grass, and then topping them with sand, wood chip or bedding if it’s for animal use – and you can drive vehicles and machinery of up to 60 tonnes over the slabs. They can be installed on any ground, and are as permanent or temporary as you need; a perfect alternative to concrete, without burying your investment.” For pathways, tracks, loafing areas, feed areas, ‘pony patios’, gateways, parking, storage, wherever mud is a problem – Mudcontrol is the solution, the company says.

Farm Diversification Beware the Telecoms Code

Living a life off-grid As staycations become increasingly popular, many more farmers will be looking to offer camping and glamping sites. Providing off-grid energy can be a key barrier however, so we spoke to one couple who have lived off-grid since 2015. Les and Steph Marsden live on eight acres of land by the edge of an airfield, just outside Stratford-upon-Avon. In 2018, they installed a 900m water supply pipe and septic tank system. Electricity came from two generators, one of which failed miserably, so they decided more back-up power was needed. They bought ten 380w solar panels, with a Lux Inverter 4.8kW kit with two US2000 lithium batteries from Pylontech, and used the gennies on cloudy days to top up batteries.

The winter months proved they needed to utilise the available wind power so FuturEnergy supplied a 48V, 1kW Airforce1 Wind Turbine System. Technical support was first class and the team were very approachable, Les and Steph say. Les incorporated a winch system onto the FuturEnergy tower rigging pole system, so one man can drop the system for safety checks and potentially in very damaging windstorms. They run a freezer 24/7 and isolate their mobile home when they go to bed, switching back on at 6am. During the day they run lights, fridge, microwave, and TV etc. They are also in the process of buying extra batteries to fully utilise the available wind power and store additional energy. FG

Demand for super-fast broadband, especially in rural areas, has grown significantly during lockdown. As such, electronic communications operators are increasingly looking for land on which to erect masts. Many farmers and landowners have rented out their land in such a way, and historically it could be a useful source of income. However, with the introduction of the Electronic Communications Code in 2017, it has become significantly less attractive. What once attracted useful rent for unused land, could be more hassle than it’s worth, says Kent solicitor Thomson Snell & Passmore. The code grants operators increased rights to access land to repair or upgrade equipment and add additional receivers without increased rent, and also to assess whether a site might be suitable for a future installation. The changes may also make it harder for landowners to end leases and remove the operator’s equipment should they wish to take advantage of redevelopment opportunities in future.

Anyone considering this type of agreement should carefully consider their options. It’s vital to seek early legal advice to ensure provisions are in place to protect the landowner’s interests, especially around land access, minimising disruption during important times of year (e.g. lambing) and ensuring that the lease can be terminated if the landowner wishes to redevelop the land. Thomson Snell & Passmore regularly advises landowners on telecoms agreements and is happy to answer questions. FG

There’s never been a better time to diversify your land

Top tips for planning your diversification WhiteAvon consultant Steph Emmerson offers a few helpful tips for diversifying, from initial budgeting and scoping your idea, to planning and grant applications. When budgeting, consider the time frame as a project progresses. Remember planning permission, grant funding and building work often take longer than expected, and always build in a 10 per cent contingency for additional costs. Your core enterprise should be profitable; the diversification is not a means to fix this. Always budget first to assess the current business; you may need to focus on this rather than start something new. Do a standalone budget for the new enterprise, then combine the budgets to see how they affect each other, including accounting for stress of sharing

staff between the two. Assess the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats for the project and visit other similar ventures.

A recent NFU Mutual survey found that 65 per cent of farmers have diversified in some way and 48 per cent are planning to start a new project or extend an existing diversification. Glamping is currently a booming business, and has a number of benefits over other diversifications, such as holiday cottages or renewables. Your start-up costs are likely to be considerably lower, it is more scalable and there is opportunity to create additional revenue streams – e.g., selling firewood, farm goods, pizzas. The upsell in this industry can make up more than 10 per cent of your total revenue.   With over 80 sites in operation, Wigwam Holidays says it is the UK’s number one glamping brand, and the only manufacturer with the requisite credibility and proven success to offer a ‘turnkey’ franchise business solution.  As well as selling

cabins, it helps fill them with paying guests and provides the necessary training and brand presence to make your business aspirations a reality. It supports clients from assistance with planning, finance, operations, marketing and from the ‘discovery call’ to site visit and eventual grand opening. Being a Wigwam Holidays franchise offers huge potential, and its state-of-the-art booking system means you can make money even as you sleep. With the recent pandemic accelerating the staycation market, there really has never been a better time to invest. FG

Farm Diversification

Financial advice for diversifying your farm Farmers know better than anyone about making hay while the sun shines. Good business is about taking opportunities when they arise – and as Covid restrictions ease, there are many chances for rural businesses to explore diverse income streams. Rural Asset Finance reports a surge in bookings from its customers who already offer on-farm accommodation. Demand for staycations this summer is high. Farmers Guide spoke to Matthew Smart (right) of Asset Finance: “There is an opportunity to provide a bespoke holiday destination wherever you are in the UK. The uncertainty of Brexit and the end of Common Agricultural Policy (CAP)

subsidies is accelerating consolidation in the commercial farming world, opening opportunities for farmers to purchase adjacent land through innovative financial arrangements as the needs of the land-owner and farmer diverge. “At Rural Asset Finance we not only provide the loan ourselves as the principal lender, but our slick internal credit and legal processes mean we consistently deliver money in as little

as three weeks – around a third of the time it would typically take with a traditional bank. Often, we use the equity in the assets you already have instead of a cash deposit contribution, which keeps your cash flow strong to give the new venture the best start possible. “The key is our internal legal team – once our internal credit team approve the loan our legal experts handle 90 per cent of the security work (required to borrow money against land and property). This is quick – we completed our most recent land deal from the first phone

call to cash in the bank in just 20 days.” How does it work? “You find the opportunity and prepare a simple plan and we’ll work with you to ensure it’s viable and agree the loan required. While banks and other lenders would outsource the legal work and due diligence to third parties – risking delays – we have our agricultural legal specialist who works with our credit team to produce the set of legal documents for you to review, all within a few days. Not only does this get you up and running quicker, but we’re finding it’s far more cost-effective too. “We understand how frustrating it is to let an opportunity pass you by, especially as it never seems to come up at the right time, so we don’t demand a monetary deposit if you can contribute other eligible land or property instead. “With Rural Asset Finance, we don’t need the assets offered as security to directly link to the diversification plan. You could use a piece of land on which you’re growing potatoes as security to buy a grass or woodland block for a new camping site miles away.” FG

Farm Safety & Security

Farm safety: One death is too many Popular farm safety app Smart Farmer is set to go live with two new features this month – lone working and field hazard identification – adding to its already impressive list of safety offerings. With the number of farm deaths and injuries still at a troublingly high level, these features are a must-have for farmers and farm workers.

Created by Aberdeenshire farmer Marc Skivington, the Smart Farmer app allows farmers and users of agricultural machinery to log checks, maintenance and servicing using a simple traffic light system. Having picked up a range of awards, the app continues to grow, with the latest safety features being Lone Working and Field Hazard Identification. Farm-related deaths and injuries continue to be reported all too regularly, with the latest HSE figures showing there were 21 deaths on farms in 2019-20. Worker fatalities are known to be 18 times higher in agriculture than the average – with transport being the highest risk.

Lone working Lone working is commonplace in agriculture and comes with the potential for higher risks and more severe consequences if workers are not able to summon help quickly. Those responsible for farm businesses have a legal duty to themselves and their workers to consider potential health and safety issues and put in place reasonable measures to ensure safety. With this in mind, the latest Smart Farmer addition, launching this month, will be a welcome feature for the sector and has the potential to save many lives. Machine operators start their working day by hitting the red record button in the top right-hand corner of the Smart Farmer app. The administrator can set how often they want the system to check workers’ latitude and longitude coordinates. If the system finds the coordinates are the same as the previous reading, an alert will be sent to the administrator and the operator’s phone. The administrator will be sent an email link with the operator’s location, so they can drive to the site to check on their safety if necessary. At the end of the day, the operator can end their working day in the app to stop tracking.

Field hazard identification Within the Smart Farmer web portal, fields can now easily be added by the admin of the site, creating a field boundary and utilising the simple key to plot all hazards on the map. Additional hazards can easily be added to the key for future reference. The GPS tracks the operators and when they

are within 20m of a hazard, a notification will alert the user. The alert will continue until the operator acknowledges the alert. Marc says: “No matter the scale of the business, it only takes a split second for it all to go wrong. No matter how experienced you are, accidents are unfortunately still happening.” Commenting on Smart Farmer, he adds: “It’s a simple, practical, operator friendly solution built by a farmer for farmers, to reduce paperwork and allow us to do what we do best in a safer manner – ultimately saving lives.”

What else can the app do? The app highlights the status of equipment using a simple traffic light system, covering unlimited users and machinery, and can record and print service reports and daily usage of machinery, as well as notifying users when a service is due. It is also possible to take and upload photos of any issues. As a cloud-based service, data is shared with everyone on the farm, so that all team members know the status and condition of the equipment. Two of the app’s most popular features are the QR code scanner – which allows operators to scan the sticker on a piece of equipment and instantly

pull up the checklist, rather than trawling through a long list of options – and the customisable nature of the checks. This allows users to tailor the number and type of checks to suit their farm – for example, focusing on key safety elements such as lights, brakes, tyres and wing mirrors, to ensure staff can complete the checks more quickly. Other features include risk assessments and training documents. Users can upload PDF risk assessments to the app and add mitigative actions, giving the operator a green, amber or red risk level. The user can see the uploaded risk assessment on the app before operating machinery. In addition, users can upload PDF training documents and create multi-choice questions, allowing machinery operators to train as they go and set dates for refresher courses. YouTube tutorials and a new digital operators’ manual are also on the way to help customers use the Smart Farmer system effectively. The app has scooped a number of awards, including most recently the Royal Highland Show Silver Award for Technical Innovation. It was also voted British Farming Awards Agri Tech Innovator, a finalist at the Scottish Rural Awards and one of Yellow Wellies’ top five apps of 2020, voted for by farmers. Marc is showing no signs of stopping and is already planning additional new features. Despite the new updates, the app retains the same yearly subscription cost, and you can sign up for a free 28-day trial. FG July 2021 www.farmersguide.co.uk 131

Farm Safety & Security

Are your trailer brakes working to the required efficiency? You may feel concerned at the lack of information available to help you answer that. In the absence of statute law – regulations to guide you – the law says that you need to establish what is best practice and work to that. Chartered safety practitioner and Safety Revolution MD, Oliver Dale, writes. The introduction of air brakes on tractors in conjunction with 50kph transmissions has again placed further emphasis on trailer braking effectiveness. As an industry, we can’t wait until there is a tragedy that provokes us to further action. There are ways in which we can be sure that we are doing as much as possible, to ensure peace of mind. This is not just a safety issue: ineffective brakes places increased strain on the tractor, increases maintenance requirements and potentially impacts on down time and resale values of all the equipment used. The development of guidance for the use of agricultural vehicles on public highways has been slow, patchy and even now is not clear and easy to understand. This has arisen because of a lack of standardisation around the specification of tractor braking capacities and the evolution of agricultural trailers, of all shapes and sizes, as the scale of farming has grown over recent years. Heavier units are harder to stop.

Some guidance In the absence of clear legal requirements, we have to look to HSE guidance and treat that as the base line. As an owner or operator of agricultural trailers you must be able to demonstrate that you have assessed the efficacy of your trailer braking systems. This means regular formal assessment at intervals that are appropriate to the type of use of the trailer. Those checks and tests need to be documented and recorded as part of the body of evidence that you need to maintain to prove that you have an effective safety management system.

A visual assessment, even if you remove the wheel and inspect the braking system whilst the trailer is stationery, is not enough. Using a type of testing kit that plugs into the tractor and trailer hydraulic system, and which enables you to then drive the unit and brake on the move, is not an adequate test either because there are too many variables that can influence and distort the coefficiency reading that the kit will give you. The only reliable way to test brakes and capture accurate results is to put your trailers over a rolling road. This enables the braking system to be tested whilst the body of the trailer is stationery. If you have hydraulic and air braking systems on the trailer you should test both. You should also be testing each wheel to assess the braking coefficiency across each individual axel – there can be very significant variances in the braking efficiency across the two wheels of the same axel. Trailers should be tested with a load on. This test gives the efficiency as a percentage on each braked wheel, by physically turning the wheel and simulating road travel with brake efficiency being measured through the driven rollers and levels of resistance being measured independently. The efficiency is recorded and stored, allowing the ability to measure the difference of efficiency the next time the vehicle is tested, which can be determined by the owner and the level of use that unit performs over a period. This testing method can build up a complete data picture of the decrease in efficiency on each trailer, each axle and each wheel to show the deterioration of efficiency,

to include planning for the servicing and maintenance of the braking system.

Does your trailer meet the thresholds? The minimum percentage braking coefficients that you should meet will depend on several factors – these should be exploited in detail and the test equipment should then be set up to ensure that the efficiency required for your particular trailers is accurately assessed, taking into account all of those factors. If the trailer fails to meet these thresholds, then remedial works are likely to be required – followed by a retest. It is interesting to notice how variable the effectiveness of each trailer’s braking is, how it can vary across one axel and how hugely variable it can be between two apparently identical trailers from the same manufacturer. These tests can be conducted at fixed rolling road testing locations such as where lorry tests are conducted or – an even better solution – you can find mobile testing rigs that are operated by specialist agricultural testing contractors, who will bring the unit to your farm and test on site – if you have failures you then have the opportunity to hold those trailers on farm whilst you decide how to address the non-conformity. In short, if you operate agricultural trailers and you cannot evidence that you’ve made reasonable endeavours to show that you are complying with the minimum legal requirements, then you are breaking the law and are potentially open to prosecution.

‘Next gen’ fire extinguisher offers substantial savings Fire is one of the biggest threats to farmers’ lives and property and dry summer weather only heightens the risk. Cherry Products’ high performance fire extinguishers offer greater peace of mind and even save time and money on servicing costs.

The P50 composite fire extinguisher from Cherry Products has taken the industry by storm, saving most customers 47 per cent over the 10year warranty period. Servicing can be done via a simple in-house visual inspection, saving time and money year on year, the company says. All P50 extinguishers meet the highest legal and safety standards and are fully compliant with British standard EN3, BSI. They are also CE marked and endorsed by Apragaz, certifying them to be used on electrical fires up to 1,000V at 1m, liquids and combustible materials. In most situations, current inventory can be reduced when replaced with P50 extinguishers, eliminating the need for two types of extinguishers – especially inside buildings. Electrical faults are the most common cause of farm fires, according to NFU Mutual figures. The cost of farm fires reached £46.4 million in 2018 – a rise of nearly 30 per cent, which is why it is essential to have the most appropriate equipment to hand. High performance foam and pulse technology means Cherry’s P50 extinguishers can be used on

electrical fires as well as Class A fires (combustible-fuelled fires – wood, paper, cloth, rubber and many plastics) and Class B fires (flammable liquid or flammable gas fuelled). The extinguishers can also reach up to 3.4m, compared to 1.3m for those using standard foam. They are made from Kevlar Aramid type woven core, UV protective casing and marine grade anti-corrosive components. There are also environmental benefits, as the foam is watercourse safe and biodegradable and manufacture is low energy. Combined with the 20-year life cycle, no service parts, fewer refills and 100 per cent recyclability, it is a green option compared to traditional equipment, Cherry reckons. Clients who purchase extinguishers from Cherry Products Ltd also have the added benefit of the online management program, allowing simple record keeping. The program has large capabilities and can handle multiple sites and users; even vehicles can be registered with drivers. There are also helpful training tutorials for servicing and using the management program. FG

Smart tech offers better connectivity, better security As rural crime is on the rise and internet connectivity continues to present problems in many rural areas, Devon-based farm technology company, West Country Tech, could hold the answer. The company offers a range of CCTV security and livestock monitoring systems that are specifically designed for rural locations. Its farm technology experts can install a 4G router to boost wireless connectivity in areas where internet is a problem and can broadcast a fast internet connection around the farm using wireless access points. It is also possible to link up different barns, houses and offices, to deliver the latest smart technology to even the most remote farms. Business director Tom Shelbourne says: “Our solutions can bridge the gap between buildings to make dead spots a thing of the past. They can be used with our CCTV and livestock monitoring systems, or simply for browsing the web.” For those looking to monitor calving and lambing sheds, the company’s high definition and night vision cameras provide a direct insight to the barn, without having

to leave home. Cameras connect to a smartphone or computer, and can be remotely controlled to pan, tilt and zoom. The CCTV systems can also be used to protect livestock and property against rural crime. West Country Tech’s systems can follow movement and use sirens and flashing lights as a deterrent for thieves. Coupled with high-definition cameras, this ensures that faces and number plates are clearly documented in the event of a theft, the company says. The cameras can be viewed on any smartphone or browser, with access both to live feeds and recordings. Mr Shelbourne says: “Advances in technology mean that cameras can now decipher the difference between valuable footage like people and vehicles, and false triggers like wildlife. This enables faster detection and more accurate notifications.”

Devon dairy farmers Olivia and Matt wanted to record people and cars entering their site, so they installed smart notification CCTV cameras at all farm entrances. In addition, they have benefitted from livestock monitoring cameras in the calf rearing, cubicle and calving sheds, with 4G internet to link the farm dwellings, barns and offices. “The other night Matt had a calver, and instead of me having to go outside and make sure everything was going alright I could quickly check on my phone,” Olivia explains. “I saw the calf born, and five minutes later Matt was back in the house. It’s good to be able to see that everything’s going smoothly without actually having to be there.” The additional security has also provided peace of mind: “With the rural crime that goes on, it’s nice to have reassurance that if someone does come into the farm at a stupid time in the morning you will know about it. It just gives us that peace of mind. We’ve got the whole package really and it’s helped us out tremendously, knowing everything is done safely and correctly,” Olivia says. FG

Farm Safety & Security Is your health and safety up to scratch? With UK agriculture responsible for 20 per cent of fatal workplace accidents, Red Tractor and the supply chain are turning their attention to worker health and safety in their standards and contracts. The new Red Tractor standards due in autumn are expected to require a higher level of detail in both H&S policy and employee training. However, such standards should be in place regardless, to help protect the business and its people from harm. Good health and safety policy and practice allows employees

Rural Compliance consultant Dan Wood.

to work more effectively, with less danger, helping to improve morale and productivity, saving money and adding to long term profitability. Managing health and safety does not have to be complicated, costly or time consuming and can be easier than you think – especially with the right support. The Rural Compliance Service (by WhiteAvon Consultancy, part of The Farm Consultancy Group) provides farmers and farm businesses with all paperwork and advice needs for health and safety, farm assurance and cross compliance. It offers a personal and tailored service, getting to know your business and providing expert and cost-effective advice. It aims to protect the safety of your workforce, create a safe and healthy work environment, and increase the productivity, quality and efficiency of work. WhiteAvon also offers a free, no-obligation meeting with interested farmers. For more information, contact WhiteAvon directly. FG

Staying safe as a lone worker For farm employees who work alone or in dangerous environments, there is always a risk they may find themselves injured or in danger without a way to contact the emergency services. StaySafe is a smartphone app and cloud-based monitoring service that enables employees to checkin safely and request immediate assistance to their exact location in an emergency. The app offers a wide range of functions, including a panic button, check-in, man-down and duress alerts. Employees are able to start a timed session before they begin a period of lone work or travel. This triggers a countdown and activates a satellite GPS tracker, visible in the

Hub. If an employee fails to end their session safely, a session expiry alert will be sent to the monitor. Employees can also set fixed check-in periods. They can check in at any point within this time period to confirm that they are safe and reset the clock. Failure to do so by the end of the timed period will raise a missed check-in. The StaySafe app offers 16 per cent more coverage than any other lone worker mobile app, so staff operating in rural areas with low signal can still send updates. The app is deployed by hundreds of organisations – from large companies down to SMEs in over 40 countries worldwide – and is used by a number of farming and agricultural workers. FG

Security starts at the main entrance With thieves increasingly targeting high value tractors, quad bikes and livestock, it is sensible to think about security investments before being targeted. Mike Yeats from Solar Gate Systems says: “We believe that security starts at the main entrance gate – if this is secure it will massively reduce the likelihood of thieves driving up your farm track and looking at what you’ve got. “The official police advice is to keep your main entrance gate closed and locked.” He adds: “Thieves will drive in through an open gate, see what there is to steal and either take it then or come back at night. If you’ve got a physical barrier, it’s very rare that someone will break in

just to look around.” Unlike many solutions, Solar Gate Systems automates existing farm gates, so it is not always necessary to buy a new one. Uniquely, the company can use solar power if mains electric is not available. There are hundreds of solar powered gates across the UK, which can handle at least 80 openings a day, working through the average UK winter. Mike explains: “If you’ve got a very long farm track, you could be half a mile from a mains power supply and the cost of running an electric cable any significant distance is prohibitive.” The company offers a variety of opening methods to suit different situations. FG

Farmers urged to take action as rural crime figures soar With rural crime on the rise, making sure your farm security is up to scratch has never been more important. Yorkshire-based 24 Networks and Security, which works with farmers nationwide to protect their property, installs CCTV and alarms that can be managed remotely from a single app on a smartphone, tablet or PC. Hikvision cameras can be programmed to detect motion at particular times of day and even automatically swivel to track movement. Alerts are sent to the farmer’s smartphone if the motion sensor is triggered. Wireless cameras can be installed to avoid the need for cables and even if cameras are placed miles away – in a barn for example – 24 Networks can install an internet bridge, making the camera systems ideal for rural use. As well as offering security benefits, CCTV doubles up as a useful tool for calving and lambing sheds, allowing farmers to watch footage from their living room TV rather than physically checking on the animals. 24 Networks can advise on the design, installation and maintenance

of security systems, offering a wide range of security equipment to suit various requirements and budgets. Many farming clients seek help with improving security after a theft has taken place, but with rural crime at its highest level in nearly a decade, the company says it is worth taking preventative action. FG


Hundreds of farmers and landowners are now benefitting from solar powered gate automation, giving increased security with ease of operation, where mains electricity is not an option. Solar Gate Systems have developed a reliable solar powered gate opening, closing and locking system, using the latest technology combined with our unique Winter Harvesting® solar panels. • Ensure your entrance gate is always closed and locked • No costly mains cables to lay • Designed specifically for high use in the UK • 24 volt system for efficiency and reliability • Metal gates up to 7 metres can now be automated

Rise in electric gate installations as rural crime increases As rural crime continues to grow, there has been a significant increase in farmers installing electric gates. Rural environments present unique challenges; gates must be robust and secure whilst fitting in with the countryside. Wind loading, dust and dirt can also impact performance, explains EstateGuard Gates. Many more farmers are opting for cantilever sliding gates over traditional hinging types, for additional security and reliability, plus the ability to secure up to a 9.6m opening in one leaf. Cantilever gates bolt down to a large concrete foundation to one side of the opening, which can be 2–5m3. A duct is needed across the opening to the latching post, which is mounted onto a much

smaller foundation. Cantilever sliding gates normally have photocell beams across the opening to prevent the gate closing onto an obstruction, a warning beacon and anti-crush safety edges on the vertical parts of the support structure, and on the front of the gate leaf. Motors are available for mains and solar operation. The solar option allows you to site the gate in the most advantageous location. It does require unshaded access to the sun facing south, but systems are available to power busy entrances with intercoms and other accessories all year round. Access controls include radio fobs, keypads, phone in access and a variety of wireless GSM intercoms. FG

Security experts recommend CCTV and alarm combo There have been reports of a worrying rise in rural crime since the start of the pandemic, with a spike in GPS thefts reported this spring, as well as increased thefts of livestock, ATVs and other high-spec vehicles. Over the past 12 months, experts have advised upping your farm security before a theft takes place, not after. However, Barry King, of Enhanced Security Solutions, notes that farm sites can be particularly difficult to secure, with numerous entry points. There are many security options on the market, which can make it even more difficult to find the right one for you. Discussing the most cost-effective solution, Mr King recommends a combination of alarm systems and CCTV to cover the access points.

Enhanced Security Systems offers electronic sensors that either produce a siren when movement is detected, or send an alert directly to your phone. Alternatively, the alert can go through to a monitoring station. All CCTV footage is recorded and stored for 30 days. The company also supplies automatic sliding or swing gates, but Mr King notes that these are most suitable for single access points, whereas CCTV and alarm sensors can cover all access points costeffectively. Based in Chelmsford, the company has been providing farmers in southern and eastern England with all forms of security for 40 years, from CCTV and alarms to access systems and gate automation. FG

Farm Safety & Security

Growing awareness of the need for routine lifting machinery checks obvious items such as the bag lift on our fertiliser spreader which also needs inspecting. Certificates of inspection can be viewed through the portal, and when we have Health & Safety checks these are easily found. It’s reassuring to know that all our equipment is properly checked in line with Loler legislation and Puwer guidelines.”

that customers aren’t aware comes under the legislation.”

Dealer’s experience

Suffolk-based Bickers Lifting Ltd has experienced growing demand for its services checking and testing lifting equipment. David Williams reports. “There is greater awareness of the need for all lifting equipment to be tested regularly, to ensure it is safe to use,” explained Bickers Lifting general manager Steven Churchyard. “We are working with a growing number of agricultural machinery dealers, agricultural contractors and farmers using our service to ensure that equipment meets the required standards. This isn’t just about ticking forms to satisfy legislation. Knowing that lifting systems have been checked by an independent specialist is reassuring to owners and managers, and is part of their duty of care to anyone who might be affected if the equipment were to fail.”

Practical experience Bickers Lifting is a division of Bickers Action – a family-owned business set up in 1976 to provide stunts, stunt equipment and special effects for the TV and film industries. Many dramatic action scenes featured in popular TV soaps, major feature films and TV adverts are created by Bickers, and part of the safety preparation involves meticulous attention to detail checking that equipment is safe to use, including straps, cables, harnesses, camera rigs and vehicles. “We employ people with the

expertise and qualifications to check it properly,” explained managing director Paul Bickers. “So it was logical to offer our services to local companies too.”

Business growth Since Bickers Lifting was set up in 2008 the business has grown, and as well as providing on-site inspections of lifting equipment across the UK, it also stocks and supplies sundry items including cables, chains, straps, ropes, hooks, ratchets, tensioners and harnesses – all produced in Europe and available for collection or dispatch by carrier. “We stock premium products which we would be happy using ourselves,” continued Steven. “There are cheaper options – but it costs little extra to buy something which is good quality and fully certified, and which will probably last longer too.”

Farms and dealers Onsite checks carried out at dealer and farm premises can include mobile machinery such as telehandlers or work platforms, workshop equipment such as gantries, hoists and vehicle ramps, and equipment carried by mobile workshop and service vans. “Lifting machinery such as handlers or cherry pickers should be examined annually. Lifting accessories and manriding equipment as well as height safety equipment including man cages should be checked every six months,” explained Steven. “Working within the industry and using these products ourselves means we are realistic and practical, and where only components are worn we encourage a safe repair rather than insisting on a complete replacement which keeps prices down for our customers. While carrying out inspections, we often spot other equipment requiring checks too, but

Ernest Doe & Sons Ltd has 18 depots across east and south-east England, and began using Bickers Lifting several years ago after changing from a national brand. “We weren’t happy with the service, so changed to a smaller family-owned business, and the Bickers Lifting team is excellent,” explained property and projects manager Alan Ringer. “Several potential suppliers were considered, but from when we first visited Bickers to discuss our requirements it was obvious that the people there care about what they do. The team is friendly and helpful and they listen to what we say and understand our requirements. The service is very good.” All lifting equipment in workshops, yards and service vans is inspected, and an inventory is kept of everything checked so nothing is missed. “Inspections are mandatory – they are not a choice, and Bickers reminds us when inspections are due, then we issue an order number and leave it to them,” he added. “A full audit can be viewed on an online portal including the condition status of each item. If repairs or replacements are needed then these are highlighted, including straps and lifting harnesses as well as jacks and axle stands plus powered machinery. We buy lifting straps and other components from Bickers as they are good value for money, and the company adds them to our equipment list to maintain an accurate inventory. Equipment used on our farm is checked too; including less

Growing demand Steven said that demand for his team’s services is growing, and most new business is through recommendation from existing customers, although there has also been interest from farmers buying groups keen to offer Bickers’ services to their members. “Our practical approach appeals. We will advise where alternative equipment might be more suitable, and we see our role as providing solutions rather than listing faults. We also suggest repairs rather than replacement

where this is a safe option and will save the customer money. Repairs are completed in our own workshops, so when faults are found during inspections we bring the equipment back to our yard, repair and re-inspect it, then return it by carrier within just a few days.” FG

Ernest Doe & Sons Ltd property and projects manager Alan Ringer says Bickers Lifting provides an excellent but cost-effective service to the 18 Ernest Doe and Ernest Doe Power depots across east and south-east England.

Hedge & Verge Cutting


Hedging equipment range offers something for everyone PFC Agri Solutions is offering direct sales of the Elkaer hedging equipment for agriculture, forestry, railway and lawn maintenance. some impressive statistics to provide massive output in dense hedges and forestry applications, whether mounted to tractor front loader, 360-degree excavator or the HK-Max multi-function tool frame. Both machines are fitted with beltdriven 800mm blades, powered by either a standard orbital motor or optional piston motor requiring only 60-litres/min oil flow and a maximum working pressure of 250-bar. The large blade size can cut through a maximum branch diameter of 250mm. The HK-Max multifunction tool frame with stability wheel offers a maximum working height of 8.5m with 7.2m of horizontal movement. To increase output and reduce operator fatigue, an electronic adjustment device allows for even cutting over rough terrain in addition to the electronic joystick control. Finally, to create a true one pass machine, the PTO driven SK2500 mulcher can pulverise branches and heavy scrub up to a diameter of 100mm. For those operators who increasingly have to deal with twoor three-year growth, a saw head is the best answer over a flail head, PFC reckons. Using a saw head will leave an even clean cut providing a faster habitat recovery and better secure boundary. Operating cost is also a factor. Flails are expensive to run on heavy material while also requiring multiple passes. The HS saw head will finish both sides of the hedge in as little as three passes with the HS2300 or HS3800. For your hedging equipment needs, the Elkaer range has the quality and product specification you require, PFC says. With many options available, there is something for everyone, from the smaller operation to large-scale hedge management. FG

Looking specifically at the HKL Fox frame and HS2300 saw unit, it provides massive output in dense hedges and forestry conditions when mounted to tractor front loaders or a telehandler, PFC says. They are particularly suitable for maintaining all kinds of hedges, paths and railway lines with a branch thickness up to 25cm. The heavy-duty HKL Fox frame offsets hydraulically by up to 1.5m. The fallen debris can be collected for disposal or chipping with a front grab when the tractor is fitted with front linkage. A rear flail topper can mulch the debris in one pass up to 100mm. The HKL Fox will pivot the saw head 210 degrees, allowing hedges to be shaped as required. The complete system requires two double acting valves and a free-flow return to operate the saw blades. This can be linked directly to the tractor spool valves or utilise the optional electrohydraulic valve The HS2300 saw head has 2.3m cutting width using 3 x 80cm blades. The bales are offset to promote an even feed of material and significantly reduce the risk of blade stalling. The blades only require 65-litres/min oil flow for full output with operating speeds up to 8kph. The saw is protected by a depth wheel when operating close to the ground level. The smooth finish of hedges that are overgrown compared to the flair trimmers means that the habitat for wildlife recovers faster and helps maintain the natural barrier a hedge is supposed to provide. PFC also offers a full line of contractor equipment for highway, forestry, railway and lawn maintenance. Focusing on the highest capacity saw heads available, PFC offers the HS2300 and HS3800 with cutting widths of 2.3m and 3.8m respectively. The company says the saws share

New additions for high-end mower and cutter range Since partnering with Spearhead Machinery, Olivers has become an important distribution partner for the high-end, UK-based mower and cutter brand. Representing Spearhead across all five depots, from Bedfordshire to Kent, Olivers’ customers have welcomed the range addition, with strong sales across many models. Joining a select few UK Spearhead dealers, Olivers now represents the Twiga SPV (self-propelled vehicle) range across the South East. With a choice of seven models, SPVs are the ultimate reach mower, replacing the traditional tractor and reach mower combination. Including a 360-degree rotating cab, reach up to 17m, and the ability to cut in forward and reverse, its speed of cutting and operator comfort are huge benefits. A compact, electric control

system has now launched across the Twiga Classic range of rear-mounted hedge cutters. Minipilot controls, previously only available on the Compact series, operate with subtle movements and deliver big results. Many will welcome the introduction of this simple electric system higher up the product range, with the box easily disconnected for storage. Meanwhile, the Pilot low-pressure oil system, favoured by Spearhead purists for its larger joystick controls and intuitive feel, remains available. Twiga Classic hedge cutters provide parallel arm geometry and a 5–6.5m reach, dependent on the model. Farmers, contractors, and local authorities are fast adopting the distinctive green machines throughout Olivers’ territory. Contact Olivers to discuss your requirements FG

Hedge & Verge Cutting

Family business specialises in trusted quality brand

Get set for the new season Award-winning British manufacturer Razorback is encouraging farmers and contractors to re-evaluate their hedge cutting equipment prior to the new season to ensure they are getting the best output and cut. “Before the new season comes into full swing now is the perfect time to have a look at other options on the market,” says territory sales manager Josh Allen. “We have a lot of customers come to us who are looking for a hardworking, reliable machine who are impressed with the level of innovation and technical specification offered by our range.” Razorback currently offers two models in its hedge cutting range, including the Auto-Level 550 and the Auto-Level 680 telescopic. Both feature patented self-levelling

technology that offers drivers smoother operation and improved controls. “Our Auto-Level Series comes with advanced electronic proportional controls as standard, incorporating a 3-axis joystick for simple and precise operation,” says Mr Allen. “Both the 550 and 680 models come with a choice of heads including the 1.2 and 1.5m Razorback Flail Head which has been designed for better trash flow through the hood and an efficient cutting action. “Featuring a SoftStart rotor fitted with heavy-duty forged hammer flails, the Razorback Flail Head is suited to high output, dense vegetation management and is a popular choice amongst our customers.” Contact Razorback directly to book a demonstration. FG

Henry White set up Attlefield Farm Machinery Ltd in 2009, initially selling quad bikes. The company now specialises in Spearhead hedge cutters, flail mowers and rotary mowers and prides itself on aftersales service, quality products and prices. It holds huge amounts of genuine wearing and replacement parts for the machines sold, as well as older machines. Stocked Spearhead parts prices are also discounted from retail to give customers better value for money as well as encouraging customers to use genuine parts as opposed to non-genuine, which can affect the warranty and the machine’s performance. AFM Ltd also holds a large stock of Spearhead machines to ensure machines are delivered in a timely manner. Specialising in one brand gives AFM Ltd the edge over dealers who have many brands crossing over, Mr White says, allowing the company to focus on Spearhead and advise

customers on the best machine for their purpose. It also means staff have a greater product knowledge, which is beneficial for both the backup of machines supplied by AFM Ltd; and new customers looking for help or advice on repairing their machines in a timely fashion. Second-hand machines go through the workshop and are serviced prior to sale; they are run up and checked over. Hundreds or thousands of pounds are spent on trade-ins so they are ready to go to work.

FARMERS GUIDE 25 YEARS AGO The Farmers Guide editorial page in July 1996 noted that, following the doubling of paper prices, the magazine was about to be hit with increased postal charges. At the time, around 18,000 copies of the magazine weighing more than 5t were mailed each month. A report on the Suffolk Show included a photograph of John Thurlow, chairman of Thurlow Nunn Standen, receiving the award as the top Massey Ferguson dealer in Europe and Ernest Doe was presented with the Perpetual Challenge Trophy for the best stand at the Suffolk Show. Among the trade stands, a display of Ruffle boilers and space heaters designed to burn waste products such as wood, pallets, cardboard and straw attracted attention. Agricultural Plant Hire Ltd had a New Holland combine on its stand which it had fully restored. The company offered a total combine

harvester rebuild for farmers who could not afford the cost of a new machine. The combine was stripped down to its chassis before rebuilding the machine. The East of England Show preview noted that G & J Peck Ltd would be celebrating 150 years in the farm machinery trade at the Show – New Holland, JCB, Grimme, Lely and other manufacturers products were displayed on their stand. New equipment at the show included the Overum Tive 8m trailed drill with an output of up to 15 acres in an hour, and the latest Claas Lexion 480. With a 40t/hour+ capacity and a 375hp engine, the Lexion was the largest combine available in the UK. In Farm Machinery News, Case IH had reached a milestone with the production of the 20,000th Case IH 32/4200 tractor. The keys for the special tractor, a four-wheel drive 4020 LP model, had been handed to the manager of Lockett Farms in Essex at a special ceremony at Doncaster. Opico’s latest big bale handling machine, the Hi-Wrappa, suitable for front end loaders and materials handlers, could be used to pick up, wrap and stack bales without the driver needing to leave the seat. The latest Dowdeswell

reversible plough was described as a no hands plough. When in automatic mode and when the the lift arms were raised on approaching the headland, the Dowdeswell electronic control automatically completed the routine of lifting and reversing the plough and all the driver had to do was to steer the tractor. Four wheel steering was JCB Landpower’s latest option for the 1100-series Fastracs. A micro processor in the cab gave the driver the option of four different steering modes. They included delay steering, which allowed the front axle to steer 15 degrees before the rear axle responded, and crab steering could be used to keep keep mounted implements away from a fence. The Farmers Guide preview for the Royal Show noted that the Valmet Mega 50 range of tractors had Sigma Power, which allowed the engine power to increase when the power take-off horsepower exceeded a pre-set level. Lynx Engineering introduced an improved front linkage and power take-off unit for the New Holland Ford 60 series tractors, and Quivogne launched a set of disc harrows with flail discs at the Show, which it was explained were ideal in very hard or very wet conditions. FG

Early International Harvester tractors International Harvester was formed in America in 1902 following the amalgamation of the McCormick Harvesting Machine Co, the Deering Harvester Co and three smaller American harvest machinery manufacturers. International Harvester made its first tractor in 1906 and the well-known 20hp Mogul with an open chain drive to the rear wheels was added in 1909. The first of a long line of Farmall tractors, the Farmall Regular, appeared in 1924. It was called the Farmall because the company claimed it was suitable for all types of farm work. The Farmall A, B, H and M models, suitable for all farm work, appeared in 1939. The Farmall A and B were classed as one-plow tractors, the H was a two-plow model and the 36hp Farmall M was a three-plow tractor. Built between 1940 and 1953, the McCormick Deering W-4, W-6 and W-9 were plow tractors. The W-4 had the same engine as Farmall H, the W-6 had the 36hp engine used for the Farmall M, and the WD-6 had a Farmall M diesel power unit. The W-4 and W-6 had five forward gears with a top speed of 14mph. The top speed on the 52hp W-9 and WD-9 was 15mph but, like the Farmall M, the fifth gear was blanked off on tractors with steel wheels. Specialist models included the industrial ID 4, 6 and 9 with heavy cast iron rear wheel centres, and the O-4 and O-6 orchard models with a downswept exhaust and tree branch guards

The McCormick Deering W-6, classed as a ‘plow tractor’ had five forward gears.

over the rear wheels. The first British-built Farmall M tractors were made at Doncaster in 1949. Designated the Farmall BM in 1951, the tractor had five forward gears and one reverse, power take-off and sidemounted belt pulley. The diesel-engined 32hp Farmall BMD was

added in 1952. The upgraded Farmall Super BM and BMD models appeared in 1955. The diesel engine had a glow plug or heater in each cylinder which was used to start the engine. The Super BW-6 and BWD-6 plow tractors were added in 1955 and remained in production until 1958. FG

RECRUITMENT and About People email: classified@farmersguide.co.uk www.farmersguide.co.uk/jobs

New regional agronomy manager in the east Adama has appointed Holly Pratt as the company’s regional agronomy manager in the east. Holly joins Adama from Eurofins Agroscience where, for the last five years, she has worked as a trials agronomist at the company’s south eastern office. Prior to this, Holly worked for Eurofins as a trials

agronomist in the north east. Commenting on her appointment, Will Nicholls, regional agronomy manager lead, said: “We are delighted to welcome Holly to Adama and look forward to working with her to improve our scope and reach in the east of the UK. Holly has a wealth of agronomy experience and is very well placed to offer technical support and advice to growers, agronomists and trade partners throughout the region.”

John Rupp retires as Ben Burgess director After 36 years of dedicated service in helping to build Ben Burgess into the company it is today, John Rupp recently announced his retirement as director – the news was included in the company’s internal newsletter. John joined Ben Burgess from Edmunson’s in Fakenham, and before that he was at Wrights of Dereham, so has spent his working life in the farm machinery industry.

Although retired from his fulltime directorship, John will continue to assist the business in a part-time capacity, in particular working with Howard Chantry and the Greencrop team, which Ben Burgess reckons is having its busiest year. The Ben Burgess company is sincerely grateful for all that John has done for it over the last 36 years, and wish both him and his wife Geraldine, who retired last year, a long and happy retirement (albeit it with a little Greencrop to keep John busy!).

Vantage ASC welcomes new engineer Vantage ASC has strengthened its service and support team with the addition of Mike Coxe. Having been working in agriculture for the last 14 years as both an operator and in management roles, Mike studied Agriculture & Crop Production at Riseholme College, before taking a lead operator role in Lincolnshire which would see his first encounter with Trimble equipment in 2010. Most recently a field manager at a

potato growing organisation, Mike has been responsible for all aspects of the crop cycle and associated operations. Mike commented: “I have been fortunate to see a wide range of businesses during my career and worked with some inspiring people. It will be a pleasure to use these skills and experience to help Vantage customers. Being able to introduce and maintain precision technology on farms and have access to a great selection of products is exciting, especially during this period of change within UK agriculture.”

Prof Malcolm Stansfield passes away Professor John Malcolm Stansfield, or Malcolm as he was known, passed away on 19th June. Prof Stansfield had a long and distinguished career and life within agriculture. Born and raised near Barnoldswick, he was the son of a master butcher and his grandparents farmed nearby in Bowland. He studied agriculture at the University of Leeds, then completed a postgraduate diploma in agriculture at Reading, where he became a senior lecturer in farm management and the director of the university’s farms. During this time, he helped found the International Farm Management Association. Malcolm retired after 42 years as the longest-serving member of

Reading’s academic staff. Malcolm’s many roles included chief agricultural advisor to the Royal Agricultural Society of England, honorary secretary for CARAS for 18 years, FCN trustee and special adviser to the House of Commons Agriculture Select Committee, as well as lecturing widely and consulting in numerous countries. He was also an author of many management and husbandry papers and presented a series of agricultural video programmes. In 2003 he was awarded an MBE for services to agriculture and to the community in Reading. He was also a recipient of the Princess Royal Award for services to the UK dairy industry. Malcolm maintained an active interest in the many organisations he was associated with and will be sadly missed as a good friend to many.

Cheffins expands machinery department Cheffins is strengthening its machinery department with the recruitment of Charles Wadsley who joined as an associate and machinery valuer, and Howard Russell, who took the position of auction administrator. Mr Wadsley worked for Strutt & Parker for the past six years, where he was a specialist farm agent, solely involved in the valuation, purchase and sale of farms and estates in the eastern region. He is a qualified rural chartered surveyor and agricultural valuer and is from a farming family in North

Cambridgeshire. He will primarily be involved in machinery valuation work and both on site and vintage sales, working alongside Oliver Godfrey and Bill King. Mr Russell joins Cheffins from the Royal Studs, Sandringham, where he spent the past two years transporting the Queen’s horses. He started his career in the thoroughbred breeding industry and has run both a small equine breeding farm alongside his own business with global livestock. More recently, he gained experience in international haulage with Richard Long Ltd, exporting machinery throughout Europe. He will principally be working with the Cambridge monthly machinery sales team, alongside Joe Page and David Wilson.

About People Bill Pepper leaves Cheffins after over 30 years on his family’s farm near Royston, as well as residential development ventures. He comments: “I have had the most fantastic career at Cheffins, however after being at the firm for my entire working life I have decided that now is the time for a new challenge.” The Cheffins Monthly Machinery Sale will now be overseen by chairman Bill King and director Oliver Godfrey. Bill King comments: “It is with great sadness that we say goodbye to Bill, who has played a crucial role in the development of the Cheffins Machinery Sale, developing it to where it is today. [...] “We are hugely thankful for his dedication to the firm, and he will be sorely missed by everyone at Cheffins.”

National parts sales role to boost customer service McCormick & Landini importer AgriArgo UK has appointed Mark Dyas to the new role of national parts sales manager. AgriArgo, the business behind the Argo Tractors UK and Ireland operation, created the new position to help dealers of the two marques develop their parts sales business, and to ensure McCormick and Landini tractors owners have full and fast access to the service consumables and other parts required to keep their tractors operating in the best possible condition.

From a family farm, Mark’s career has included extensive work across domestic and global farm machinery and equipment companies, including parts sales direct to agricultural businesses and the aftermarket sector, plus dealerships and wholesalers across the UK, Europe and worldwide. Mark commented: “We have some fantastic world-class products that are a match for anything available, but getting the customer coming back for more is all to do with the dealers, so my role is to help them build their businesses not just on our tractors but also on the products and services they sell to support them.”

Cargill recruits pig research coordinator Clare Gaukroger has joined Cargill’s pig team as research coordinator for the UK. Based in North Yorkshire, she is establishing trials and managing data collection, analysis and interpretation for a wide range of projects on the company’s two UK reference farms. These pig units are equipped with trial facilities and are designed to reflect commercial UK farms. One focuses on weaner pig performance and the other, a more recently introduced site, will look at challenges and solutions in commercial grower finisher systems.

After gaining a first-class honours degree in animal science from Newcastle University, Clare spent a year as a swine technical specialist for Anpario before returning to Newcastle University to undertake a PhD in gut microbiota development in piglets and its relationship on performance. Winner of the President’s Prize at the British Society of Animal Science conference in 2016, she was a speaker on piglet gut health at EuroTier in Germany in the same year and was also awarded a travel grant to present at the International Symposium on digestive physiology of pigs in Australia in 2018.

Richard Morton took up the role of Fendt product specialist at Scottish dealer Johnston Tractors in December 2020, having previously run a Fendt family dealership. He now works across Johnston’s Carlisle, Dumfries and Penrith branches. Richard’s father and uncle started a Fendt dealership in the early 1980s and in 2008 it became a father and son business when Richard bought out his uncle. Having always been heavily service-orientated, usually found in the workshop, Richard’s skills were still put to good use when the

business merged with Carrs in 2015. When the Fendt brand moved to Johnston’s, Howard Johnston invited Richard to join the team. He says: “I’ve always been passionate about servicing – both looking after customers and making sure tractors are working in peak condition. I have high expectations on delivery and it’s a philosophy I can reinforce at Johnston’s who I know share the same ethos.” Johnston’s officially took over the Fendt dealership in April 2021 but there has been a six-month transition period, during which the team has been training and taking enquiries. Contact Richard on 07850 308537.

Kubota appoints southern area dealer manager Kubota (UK) Ltd has appointed Oliver Beekes as Tractor Business Unit (TBU) dealer manager for agricultural and ground care machinery ranges for the south and south west of England. Oliver graduated from Harper Adams University with a degree in agricultural machinery and, with time spent with another manufacturer, he brings with him considerable experience as a product specialist and, latterly from his most recent role, a

territory manager. “I’m looking forward to being challenged with continual dealer development and brand-building, to introduce Kubota to the wider farming community,” said Oliver. “Kubota has a tremendous presence in ground care and construction – and I’d like to see that replicated in agriculture, and be part of that success story. “There is growing demand from the industry for Kubota tractors and machinery, and aspiration from the company to be a major player in these markets – it’s a great time to be on this journey.”

Kuhn UK appoints new service manager Johnathan Lovell has been promoted to the role of service manager for Kuhn Farm Machinery (UK) Ltd, stepping up from his previous position with the company providing technical support across the south and south west of England. In his new position, Johnathan will oversee the provision of technical support and aftersales service advice for Kuhn’s full range of grassland, arable, livestock and landscape maintenance machinery ranges. He will manage Kuhn’s technical support team that


operates regionally and from the head office in Telford. Johnathan, who has a background in mechanical, aeronautical and agricultural engineering, comments: “I’ve gained a lot of understanding during my time in the field and feel ready to step up and lead the team. It’s an exciting time to be working in the farm machinery sector, not least because of the advancement in technology. With technology, we’re moving from monitoring to controlling machinery at a rapid pace and it’s our job to help Kuhn’s customers get the most out of their machines.”
