  3. 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.

    Claydon ImageSuffolk-based Claydon Drills enjoys a loyal customer following and the company's annual open days on founder Jeff Claydon's heavy land farm are popular.

    This year there were four half-day sessions over two days which attracted farmers and contractors from all over the UK. Since its first V Drill strip-tillage drill entered the market in 2003, Claydon's range has expanded and, with complementary products from a straw rake to a shallow stubble cultivator, a new inter-row weed hoe and Cambridge rolls making up the “Claydon Opti-Till System”, the company offers almost everything needed for successful but low-cost cereals production argues its creator.

    TerraMap Logo LayersSoil nutrient mapping is set to get a lot more accurate and detailed as the scanning technology used for detecting minerals from the air in 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.

    TerraMap - SoilOptix Passive SensorLaunched by Hutchinsons, TerraMap revolutionises the way in which soil nutrient mapping is currently undertaken in the UK - setting a new standard for accuracy in precision agriculture.

    Today’s precision farming requirements demand greater accuracy and currently UK growers do not have access to a high definition soil scanning system – until now, says Hutchinsons precision technology manager, Oliver Wood.
