Visitors 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).
In this particular trial, costs of production were also reduced, by as much as £28/tonne.
Hutchinsons will also be launching TerraMap, a soil scanning and mapping service set to revolutionise the way in which soil sampling is carried out on UK farms. Available exclusively through Hutchinsons and Omnia, visitors will also be able to discuss the Helix Project, which is a unique farm scale project, that was launched this spring, looking at how technologies can be successfully linked with knowledge to deliver a greater level of advice by agronomists to farm businesses.
