  1. Increase Yields and Profitability – Farmers Guide

    Posted on

    Cereals_2019_Logo-Horizontal_Details_CMYKTrial results that reveal how to increase yields and improve profitability will be available to discuss at this year's Hutchinsons stand at Cereals.

    By comparing variably drilled wheat alongside a farm standard rate on spilt fields and taking them to yield, the statistically-valid work has proven that using Omnia Precision Agronomy can increase yields by an average of 0.6t/ha, worth £99/ha (based on wheat at £165/t). In this particular trial, costs of production were also reduced, by as much as £28/t, says Hutchinsons.

    Terramap is a soil scanning and mapping service available exclusively through Hutchinsons and Omnia. Terramap will be launched at Cereals.

  2. TerraMap lifts soil mapping accuracy and window – AgriTradeNews – Oliver Wood

    TerraMap Logo LayersHutchinsons has launched a new soil nutrient mapping service, which it says is the first high definition system available in the UK, with an extended data collection window.

    TerraMap uses gamma-ray detection technology to delivers resolutions of over 800 points per hectare, providing high definition mapping of all common nutrient properties, pH, soil texture, organic matter and cation exchange capacity (CEC) as well as elevation and plant available water.

  3. Discuss Profitability with Hutchinsons at Cereals – Stand 500 – Agronomist & Arable Farmer

    Cereals_2019_Logo-Horizontal_Details_CMYKVisitors to the Hutchinsons stand at Cereals will be able to discuss the results of last autumn's Omnia validation trials, which proved for the first time the financial benefits of variable drilling using Omnia.

    By comparing variably drilled wheat alongside a farm standard rate on split fields and taking them to yield, the statistically valid work has proven that using Omnia Precision Agronomy can increase yields by an average of 0.6t/ha, worth £99/ha (based on wheat at £165/t).

    TerraMap - SoilOptix Passive SensorEver wondered what your soil is trying to tell you? CPM profiles a new service, using a tool that picks up a soil’s unique signature to give a window on its world.

    A certain amount of care is applied as the sodium-iodine crystal, encased in its carbon fibre tube, is placed in the foam-filled carry case, ready to move to the next site. It lies at the heart of what Hutchinsons believes is a “game-changing” soil-mapping service, that will quite literally unearth a wealth of spatial data that’s never before been captured.

  5. Gamma Rays Detect Nutrient Levels – Agronomist & Arable Farmer – Oliver Wood

    TerraMap soil scanning infographicUsing technology to map soil nutrients is not a new science; however, a newly launched system takes the process to a whole new level.

    Launched by Hutchinsons, TerraMap revolutionises the way in which soil nutrient mapping is undertaken. Today's precision farming requirements demand greater accuracy and UK growers do not currently have access to a high definition soil scanning system – until now, says precision technology manager Oliver Wood.

    TerraMap uses gamma ray detection technology that delivers resolutions of over 800 points/ha, providing high definition mapping of all common nutrient properties, pH, soil texture, organic matter (OM) and the Cation exchange capacity (CEC) of the soil, as well as elevation and plant available water.

  6. The Routes to Higher Crop Yields Revealed – Cumberland News – Helen Brown, Lewis McKerrow

    Field Walking - northThe annual Hutchinsons Carlisle crop demonstration open day promises a fascinating insight into how yields can be improved through variety selection, targeted agronomy and precision technology.

    The event is being held at Midtown Farm, Kikbampton, on Tuesday June 18, by kind permission of the Brown Family.

    Demostrations will cover four key topics; the latest winter wheat, barley and spring barley varieties, seed rate trials, the role of forage yield mapping and the newest precision farming tools from Hutchinsons.

    TerraMap - SoilOptix Passive SensorA high definition soil mapping service has been launched in the UK to give growers improved accuracy in understanding their soils.

    Unveiled by the UK farm advice and supply company, Hutchinsons, the new TerraMap system uses gamma-ray detection to deliver high definition mapping of all common nutrient properties.

    These include pH, soil texture, organic matter and CEC (Cation exchange capacity), as well as elevation and plant available water.

    TerraMap Mini LogoSoil nutrient mapping is set to get a lot more accurate and detailed as the scanning technology used for detecting minerals from the air across the wilds of Canada is being adapted for the UK farm.

    A helicopter-mounted sensor used for mineral prospecting has been scaled down to a high-definition soil scanning system which is being launched as TerraMap to refine precision farming systems.
