Approximately 45 people turned out for yet another enjoyable evening. The evening was opened with a speech from the Chairman Mr Tim Bulwer-Long thanking all the Masters, Huntsmen and Hunt staff for all their hard work throughout the season, and also to all those in the back ground who offer their services in a voluntary nature to make the North Norfolk Harriers a happy and enjoyable environment to be at, be it at a Meet or a social event organised by the Supporters Club.
The Chairman proceeded to thank the long running service of Tina Hayward following her resignation from the board as Hon Secretary this year, her time and dedication to the job over the many years were second to none and will be sorely missed. But hopefully will give her more time to be out in the field watching the next generation of pony club members take up the mantle. With comments mainly about the horses turnout and the occasional humorous picture of our roadman in a bowler he had purloined from a member of the foot followers the inevitable Puddings were served again made by the subscribers, the standard of which seems to be raised each year, this must be down to a certain Mary Berry on the TV.
As the evening came to a close fun was had at the tables with a Guess the weight of the Huntsmans Horseshoes competition which caused much debate, with an uncanny method of judging the weight by the Deane,s, Ian Deane won by 0. Very impressive Mr Deane, and so took first prize of a bottle of winter warmer for the flask. All agreed it was a very enjoyable season and everyone was looking forward to the forthcoming summers events.
A big thank you to all who had arranged the event, cooked the food and puddings and also to those on kitchen dutys who always put in the most work at these events. After much bidding all Mice had new owners for the night and betting began at the Tote table with Tick Tack Dan overseeing the odds. With screams and shouts as some Mice turned back to their starting boxes, and after race four racing was suspended for a stewards enquiry!
Supper was served by Sue Kirk who had been slaving in the kitchen to produce a very tasty sausage supper, followed by cream laden puddings. Our thanks go to all our Sponsors for the evening, and a big thank you to Paul Stockdale and Wendy of Pickenham Pacers for putting on such a fun night, and to all who had helped make the night another to remember.
Happy New Year To all our subscribers, supporters and visitors to our Web site. Look out for all our up and coming events for , next fun events are Mouse Racing on the 15th Jan and Burns Night Celebrations on the 24th Jan, see flyers in download section of the Events page for more information.
Boxing Day Meet: Sennowe Park The traditional meet venue for Boxing Day at Sennowe Park was well supported as ever and we would all like to thank those who turned out on foot to support us to keep our hunting tradition alive. The forty plus mounted field had a memorable day, in and around the park and it was good to see a young lady from Florida riding traditional style which was a first for her, who along with her partner, joined a hunting field for the very first time.
Post hunting social media discussion reported much mud and tack cleaning required and also a lot of aching limbs, but resulting in a good day had by all. Bangers, Mash and Carols Night. I was good to see a lot of new faces turning out on a very blustery night to experience the delights that came from the NNH kitchen. After much catching up supper was concluded and we were summoned to the upper living area by the lone horn blower to attend carols. With the choirs throats suitable lubricated the busy kitchen staff was entertained by the carol singers from above, and the accompanying Horn.
Unfortunately the evening ended with everyone making a mad rush to their cars as the wind and rain was back with vengeance.

Leaving it late With the late drilling slot upon us, Farmers Guide seeks advice on winter wheat choice and management, and the trade-offs involved at this stage of the season. Most varieties have a preferred sowing window during which they can be expected to deliver their best performance.
Outside this timeframe and aspects such as plant vigour, maturity and yield can be compromised. In many instances, these can be managed through variety choice, says KWS product development manager, John Miles right , but first it is important to understand the distinction between crops sown in the late autumn to those sown in the winter, such as after roots.
It is possible to push most varieties into the late-autumn. As ever the devil is in the detail, but fortunately recent changes to the Recommended List trials mean variety performance at the late-autumn timing is largely well reflected.
A good late drilling variety, therefore, is one that combines KWS Siskin is naturally well-suited to sowing after mid-October. Both combine good autumn and spring vigour, though of the two KWS Siskin is the more vigorous, and good grain quality. Spring vigour is an often-overlooked characteristic, but it is central to how a variety finishes come the summer.
For those seeking a variety to sow after roots, variety suitability will be determined by whether drilling occurs before or after the New Year. KWS Crispin is the outstanding choice at this stage. Stay off the land until you can drill to an even depth without clods, even if this means waiting until the spring Move as little soil as possible when drilling, sow to a consistent 3—4cm depth, place enhanced availability P with the seed, if possible, and consolidate well.
Use the best quality seed available from fast-developing varieties with a high black-grass competitiveness. Treat the seed to boost root development and, where necessary, to combat take-all. Spray off weeds and volunteers as close to drilling as possible and include a permitted glyphosate with the pre-em, if necessary.
Use a flufenacet-based pre-em, including a specialist adjuvant to improve activity and crop safety. Assess slug pressure well ahead of sowing and achieve the best possible kill before drilling with targeted pelleting. Apply a good dose of early spring N, accompanied by P, K and S where possible and maintain regular top-dressing ahead of earlier plantings.
Office: Nigel : Ross : email: info bullocktillage. In the first autumn without insecticide seed treatment Deter, growers should place added emphasis on seedbed quality. While it was primarily used to protect cereal crops from barley yellow dwarf virus BYDV , Deter also had a repellent effect against slugs around treated seed, reducing feeding and the subsequent hollowing which can compromise establishment.
That is no longer the case. In addition to cultural methods, Herefordshire agronomist Antony Wade right advises monitoring with traps in stubbles or cultivated ground ahead of establishment and treating with a ferric phosphate-based pellet immediately after drilling if slug risk is identified. There are also no concerns when using the product around watercourses. This durability may be needed according to Certis western regional technical manager Geoffrey Bastard, who says the wet autumn is likely to increase slug pressure considerably.
Keep monitoring after initial applications, as follow up treatments will be needed where Seed hollowing is often the result of poor, cloddy seedbeds. Our Healthy Soils Assessment will help you develop meaningful soil management strategies in order to unlock yield, improve soil health and long term sustainability. At the bread-making end of the spectrum, Group 2 variety LG Detroit can be drilled up until the end of January, but is a high vernalisation requirement variety a Crusoe cross , so that is its latest drill date.
Conduct a Healthy Soils assessment to benchmark the biological, chemical and physical aspects of your soil. Field f cus Crop yields last harvest were good for both our agronomists on the whole, but rain has been the dominant factor since causing disruption to autumn drilling and input programmes.
Nottinghamshire AICC Arable Alliance agronomist Andrew Wells said that harvest for his farmers had been better than expected, despite experiencing catchy weather with more drying needed than usual. In summary though, he reckoned that there was a decent quantity of cereal crops in the shed for them to sell. Andrew suggested that it was a difficult decision whether to rip up OSR crops in late April, replacing them with spring barley or maize, but with propyzamide herbicides already applied, most crops were left to see what they would achieve.
Speaking on 9th October, nothing in the way of cereals had been drilled following 5-inches of rain over the preceding 2 weeks. He suggested that those waiting to put 2- and 6-row conventional winter barley in the ground will be very aware of the clock ticking, while growers with hybrid seed have a little longer.
We hope to get the winter barley completed by the time this magazine lands on the doormat and there is plenty of time for the wheat drilling as long as we get some drier weather. Although he pointed out that these crops are not safe yet. However, for those fields that were drilled late, and where there was poor seed-to-soil contact, plants are still very small and are being damaged by adult flea beetles. Rape winter stem weevil has also been a significant problem in some areas.
Since harvest, fieldwork has been very much stop and go and Jim reckons that, in terms of winter crop sowing, growers are about 7—10 days behind schedule. Also speaking on 9th October, Jim said that wheat drilling is normally completed by the middle of the month, and those crops that are already in the ground are coming through nicely. For the North, delayed drilling is not an option. Balancing biodiversity and production to achieve healthy farming Seed developers, crop protection companies and growers need to work more closely together to keep on top of pests and disease.
Heather Briggs reports. New challenges, such as an increasing number of extreme weather events, are facing the sector, and crops not only have to be able to withstand them, but also still deliver yield and quality. Crop yields and quality He also drew attention to the BASF Sustainability Farms Network which is helping other growers find the balance between crop yields and quality and care for the environment.
Northamptonshire-based farmer, agronomist and environmental consultant Andrew Pitts has been working closely with BASF for more than 15 years. In addition to developing new varieties of vegetable crops such as carrots in its recently acquired seed vegetable. Digital Digital platforms are also under development to optimise timing and application methods and help growers get the best results from their products.
Moreover, combining digital tools, such as smart sprayers and targeted weeders, and the use of field mapping, is expected to help ensure compliance with even tighter regulatory requirements, said the company. New BASF chemistry includes the recently approved fungicide Revysol isopropanol-azole , with Revysol based-products available in the UK market from spring , plus the soil residual herbicide Luximo tackling the challenge caused by black-grass, with expected availability in the EU in , subject to successful authorisation.

Canopee allows remote programming of valves and monitoring of water flow, soil moisture and air temperature — all from the office. As water scarcity becomes an increasing problem, Wroot Crop Systems says the agriculture industry will need to look at irrigating more wisely, avoiding run-off and irrigating to match the infiltration rate of the soil. Having led the field with drip and sprinkler systems for 20 years, the company says it has now taken valve control and in-field monitoring to a new level — using a combination of different communication technologies.
The Canopee Irrigation Control System allows remote programming of valves and monitoring of. Data can then be viewed on a smartphone or tablet, so users can be informed of problems before visiting the field.
The software and apps are free, meaning no ongoing costs for the user. Canopee can also operate without mains power or wires. It is a standalone system that improves precision irrigation — allowing the amount of water for each valve to vary according to soil type and crop growth stage.
This new irrigation control system can be retrofitted to existing Wroot Water Systems, as well as other brands of irrigation system on the market.

More than farms have connected to a pioneering user-led weather network since its January launch, underlining how ultra-local, in-field data can support improved decisionmaking and accuracy for agronomic tasks such as spraying. The connected weather stations, from agtech start-up Sencrop, take advantage of new precision technology to provide accurate, farm-specific weather data, rather than relying on general, regional forecasts. More than 10, are already in use across Europe.
This is collaboration in action. Everyone benefits. Sencrop owners report using their stations for tasks such as recording day-degrees to calculate T-Sum for BYDV aphid treatment thresholds, monitoring temperature and humidity in potato crops for blight control decisions, and the ability to monitor weather at parcels of remote land to judge suitability of conditions for spraying.

The latest T8 line-up includes 5 models from —hp max EPM and, like the previous range, the target market is larger arable farms and contractors, many of who will already be using precision farming technology to optimise efficiency of operations.
Most upgrades inside From the outside, along with new decals, the most obvious indication that the tractor is the latest model is the lack of a B-pillar on the left side of the cab. Removing this has allowed a larger door for improved cab access. Central locking is available using a new remote key which also incorporates a coded immobiliser. A master key can be programmed to access and start a whole fleet of the.
The cab frame is similar to before, but a complete redesign resulting from user consultation includes extra storage for large items as well as odds and ends. The cab floor includes shaped compartments which prevent loose items rolling about. With increasing use of electricpowered accessories there are a large number of volt power points as well as USB-charging connectors.
With a nod to its American heritage the new T8 Genesis has leather upholstery similar to traditional American lorries or pick-ups, which is functional but extremely comfortable. Heating and ventilation are upgraded with programmable zone control and additional vents. Another update is improved semiactive cab suspension. Actuators under each side of the cab adjust the firmness of the ride while a large anti-roll torsion bar at the rear keeps the cab level.
Front and rear cameras are standard and up to two additional cameras can be specified linked direct to the screen for implement or trailer monitoring. The front camera has a degree field of vision, increasing safety for those emerging from fields on to a road through a hedge for example, where the view to the sides would otherwise be impaired.
For those working at night, 30 per cent extra lighting performance is available. New Holland T7, T8 and continued over Cab comfort is improved including uprated leather seats, more space, an improved control layout and additional storage. However, an even more powerful 49,lumen light set for the new Genesis models is expected to prove even more popular.
Space-age instrumentation is clear and easy to view. There are more functions, but fewer controls. Traditionally New Holland has been closely aligned with Trimble for its display and guidance hardware but the new IntelliView 12 terminals for the T8 Genesis were designed inhouse and use an Android operating system. This has given New Holland a free hand to incorporate any features it needs and, although the demonstration machine terminal included many new functions, developments continue and there is the potential for upgrades later — many of which remain secret for now.
Examples would be a leader and follower situation for machines engaged in field work, or a tractor and trailer controlled automatically while a combine unloads. Powerful lights are standard but an upgrade provides up to 49, lumens. The front camera is below the badge on the grille.
With massive potential for upgrading in future, could these tractors be capable of fully autonomous operation as development of systems and. Take the capability of your tractor into new territory with Lynx. Our accessories can equip any make or model for virtually any challenge. Machinery legislation continues? Operator friendly A new SideWinder Ultra armrest is customisable, and divided into 3 areas with functions required 85 per cent of the time accessed through the Command Grip multi-function joystick.
Those needed less often are adjacent on the main console and those used only 5 per cent of the time are in a strip further to the right. There are quick access buttons for 2 pre-set engine speeds, diff lock and 4wd, 5 configurable remotes which all incorporate easily-set locking functions, and up to 11 buttons which can be programmed with specific functions to suit user preference and applications.
A handy new feature making it easier to select and control hydraulic valve functions is the ability to configure and colour-code each switch to suit the task. The switches change colour to indicate the selected function and each can be configured for five function areas, with additional options available. The increased customisation, with many controls capable of multitasking, has resulted in 17 per cent fewer buttons and switches than previously, and the cab feels less cluttered than before.
The mouse is palm-shaped with buttons and a scroll selector and allows all linkage functions to be controlled without the operator repositioning his hand. To the right of the mouse is a smaller joystick which includes. The new Command Grip joystick design includes 20 per cent more buttons than before, and is now Isobus- and vehicle-configurable. Isobus Class 3 is also available for the first time on T8 models allowing tractor control by implement and additional complex functions.
Obviously significant investment in hardware development has been made, and Darragh confirmed that, although the new T8-series have been selected as the first to have it, other tractors in the range will have it in future and it will also appear on New continued over A new remote key fob option offers extra security. Different users on a farm can have access to individual tractors permitted or denied. The New Amazone Ceus disc and tine cultivator.
The combined action of a compact disc harrow for shallow stubble cultivation with a tine section for deep loosening, makes the Ceus-2TX cultivator the most flexible soil tillage implement in this sector. Working widths from 4m to 7m Ideal for all forms of soil tillage from primary cultivation through to seedbed preparation Both disc and tine elements can be run either together or in isolation adding to the flexibility Choice of rollers to suit your soil type.

When an implement is selected from a list in the set-up menu it appears on screen connected to the tractor. Positive operation by quick-access buttons on the SideWinder Ultra armrest is just as easy to use and there is also control available through a twist dial with click selection. Holland machines such as harvesters. A simplified form of the system through a retro-fit IntelliView 12 display will be available for other brands for maximum compatibility across a farm or contracting fleet.
Increased compatibility with up to nine GPS satellite networks helps future-proof the system and will ensure accuracy in almost any location. N-Trip network compatibility provides accurate guidance by phone signal without a base station, but for those with RTK the new system is also fully compatible.
Maximum uptime Meeting Stage 5 emissions regulations has been achieved through a larger catalyst chamber and without EGR or increased Adblue use. The fuel and Adblue tanks of the latest T8 are identical to its predecessor. Servicing is every hours as on previous models. A handy new feature is selfcalibration of auto-steer.
All that is. The media player and controls used less often are in the cab roof. Climate control is adjusted from the control panel or display. The latest track assemblies on SmartTrax half-track models have bolton rollers making replacement easier and the new rollers are also available to retro-fit to existing tractors. Rubber tracks are by Camso but New Holland is currently trialling Soucy tracks with a view to offering users an option.
Remote assistance services New Holland Intelliview Connect is a service allowing the tractor operator to share his Intelliview display with a supervisor or dealer when requested, for assistance or problem solving. Remote firmware updates are also available wirelessly. Maintenance requirements and fault notifications can also be monitored, allowing the dealer and user to schedule servicing and minimise downtime.
Practical test-drive The flagship T8 Genesis SmartTrax was working away from public view on a large Oxfordshire estate, with a Vaderstad Carrier cultivator on postharvest cereal stubble which gave plenty of opportunity to try setting up and using the new control and guidance systems. The in-house designed main IntelliView 12 terminal has working logic similar to a tablet and proved easy to use with simple menus accessed by touching the screen.
Along the top of the display is an information bar with clear icons indicating which functions are selected and in use. Interactive The new display is more interactive than anything seen before and the user can touch the screen to zoom in or out and even rotate the view.
A handy feature is the ability to record screenshots by pressing and holding the camera screen symbol. The images are stored and can be easily shared with others to highlight information of interest from performance data to guidance or Isobus-control images. For task and machine management the user selects the task by description, then the attachment from a farm-specific drop-down list.
Additional implements are easily added when needed. Full dimensions of the implement can be input and displayed for reference and an accurate diagram is shown. When the operator chooses the task and implement from the menu, the guidance screen displays an image of the tractor and implement together — a clever feature which helps ensure the correct equipment and task have been selected for accurate record keeping.
The new IntelliView 12 display provides very easy set-up of guidance modes and working strategies which means that, with familiarity, just a few minutes is needed at the start of a task or a new field to create an efficient working pattern. For simultaneous use of the screen for guidance while controlling and monitoring Isobus-compatible implements, the user has the option to select a split screen view.
Additional storage space throughout the cab includes a shaped floor to prevent items rolling around. The latest SmartTrax tracks have bolt-on rollers making them easier to replace. New Holland plans to increase the range of rubber tracks offered and is currently testing Camso versions. New dashboard display The previous A-pillar post display is replaced by Info View. This is a full colour display on the front console, providing essential tractor operating information including travel speed, engine revs, fuel level and temperature.
Additional information such as cruise control speed settings are also available at a glance. As well as displaying operational information, a camera feed will also be available continued over The latest T8 Genesis models are Isobus 3 compatible. Up to six rear hydraulic valves can be specified and, for those using front-mounted implements a new option is mid-mounted valves with dedicated controls, avoiding the need for a shared oil supply from the rear.
The new control layout is excellent and everything is within easy reach. The colour-coded hydraulic controls make it easy to see at a glance which are needed and, if a different colour is preferred, then with a few touches of the screen the change can be made. The front instrument panel with its new Info View display provides most of the. Tractor test tractor performance information needed for the road and in the field and, because there is so much included, there is less need to refer to the main IntelliView 12 display, allowing the operator to keep his eyes to the front.
The new cab is easier to access through the wider opening door and, although the cab is the same size physically as its predecessor, it actually feels larger, mainly due to the revised instruments and control layout. Comfort is excellent and a run along a bumpy farm track emphasised the performance of the new cab suspension, although the luxury leather seats also played their part in the ride quality.
Brake to steer is new on SmartTrax models with customisable steering improving manoeuvrability and turning performance and reducing scuffing during turns. Looking beyond all the clever functions available on the demonstration tractor, and mindful of the fact that many more remain in development for adding later, the new T8 Genesis PLM Intelligence series is likely to be an attractive long-term investment for professional farmers and contractors. The T8 Genesis models will be unveiled officially at Agritechnica in early November and deliveries to customers will commence in late spring next year.

Combine updates prove ideal for Kent farm Improved performance and new features of the latest Case IH Axial-Flow combines are expected to make it easier to establish and grow successful crops on a Romney Marsh farm. David Williams reports. Oilseed rape is established direct into stubbles which requires a fine chop from the straw chopper. Six years ago, the farm upgraded to a So, we moved away from our previous brand, and bought our first Axial Flow combine from local dealer Ernest Doe Power.
The Redekop attaches to the rear of the combine behind the standard chopper. Special blades produce a powerful air blast which helps blow chopped straw and chaff out to the sides more consistently than the standard chopper. It worked well, providing the solution Andrew needed. Power and automation With the Axial Flow five years old and due for replacement earlier this year, Andrew had no hesitation in investing in the latest Axial Flow, boasting additional power hp max and extra automation to improve performance and work rates.
It also had a larger 14,litre grain tank. The extra-long unloading auger was now available as an option on the standard price list and a Redekop MAV Xtra-chopping chopper, now factory fitted, was also selected, based on the performance of the previous unit. This uses a network of 16 sensors throughout the machine to monitor performance and, using the information generated, 7 different settings are automatically adjusted to optimise performance based on the selected harvesting strategy.
This includes Feedrate Control which adjusts ground speed based on crop. The new Case IH Axial Flow is equipped with AFS Harvest Command which automatically adjusts travel speed for optimum feed rate, and adjusts the threshing and cleaning systems for optimum grain quality. The operator selects maximum engine and travel speeds, and performance is optimised within these limits. These sense impending overloads, allowing the cleaning system to operate at maximum capacity, while also making adjustments when needed to prevent losses before they occur.
Four operating strategies: Performance — which maximises harvesting rate until grain losses from the rotor or cleaning system exceed pre-set parameters. Machinery Operator Darren Moulding says the new combine is excellent and that the increased automation helps him get the best from the machine. Fixed throughput — a target throughput is maintained by varying the travel speed while settings are adjusted to minimise losses.
Maximum throughput — the combine operates up to the speed or power limit set by the operator while adjusting settings to minimise grain losses. Grain quality mode — settings constantly adjust to maintain targeted grain quality and impurity levels, while also minimising losses.
Auto feed-rate control Darren said automatic travel speed control is selected most of the time, as it offers advantages in variable conditions, where speed increases in response to areas of thinner crop, and reduces where crop is thicker.
When filling a trailer alongside I always select manual speed control though, as sudden changes could cause problems for the trailer drivers. Optimise throughput A new feature on the latest Axial Flow is rotor vane adjustment from the cab allowing the operator, or AFS Harvest Command in automatic mode, to adjust threshing performance for the crop and conditions. Adjusting the vanes to a shallow angle means crop remains in the rotor for longer for aggressive threshing, while a steeper angle moves the crop through more quickly, allowing higher work rates.
Sieve adjustment can also be adjusted manually, or automatically through AFS Harvest Command, in response to information from the loss sensors, grain camera and sieve pressure sensors. I try to maintain the best sample possible for all crops as that reduces the work load for the grain store.
The new combine achieves a better sample whether I make the settings manually, or allow the combine to make them automatically and this year the oilseed rape was the cleanest we have ever seen. The tracks are also improved with better suspension, and Darren said that at 30kph maximum travel speed the ride is more comfortable. The latest cab is similar to before but noticeably quieter and Darren said he believes this might be due to the new tracks with their reduced vibration and smoother ride.
Higher work rates Darren has driven combines for 16 years since being employed by Brooker Farms and at the time he joined the team, 2 combines were operated, later reducing to 1. It lets me push the combine to full capacity when conditions are right to get as much harvested as possible without having to worry about overloading the rotor and blocking it. Even though this harvest was generally dry, during the early stages we had few really good harvesting days.
Heavy dews held us up in the mornings and light rain showers forced us to stop in the afternoons, so making the most of harvesting opportunities as crops were ready was essential. In very windy conditions where spread width can be compromised the fine chop means that cultivator and drill performance are unlikely to be affected. The new The new Axial Flow has an improved transmission with field and road modes and on-the-move.
Daily maintenance requirements are minimal and Darren commented that the fuel and Adblue filling points are conveniently located. Soils improving Since moving to CTF, soil condition has improved and fewer cultivations are needed. Oilseed rape will be drilled straight into the chopped straw.
A 12m Lemken Heliodor cultivator will create a light tilth for winter wheat after peas and oilseed rape, and for spring barley after winter wheat. Next year we will also trial this approach for a small area of peas. Tramlines remain largely untouched while the wider combine tracks are remedied with a special 2-legged Flat-lift. Minimum terms apply.
Indemnities may be required in certain circumstances. Finance is only available to persons aged 18 or over, subject to status. Honda Franchise Dealers are credit brokers, not lenders. Credit provided by Honda Finance Europe Plc. They were interested in our feedback and keen to know what we need for the future. Andrew says a result of moving to 12m CTF is that the machinery used is large for the area farmed, but allows field operations to be carried out when conditions are optimal. However, the main component of the 12m traffic regime is the combine.
The new Axial Flow has an ideal header size, an unloading auger which allows trailers to remain in the tramlines and a straw chopper which chops finely and spreads effectively, which is crucial for our progression towards minimal tillage. Complete solution to digital processes Simplifying digital processes and enabling access to Isobus is the aim of a new product from Agxtend.
The Isomax, which has been awarded the Silver Agritechnica Innovation Award, delivers "the complete solution, from the plug to the ECU" says the manufacturer. All hardware is certified by the Agricultural Industry Electronics Foundation, all software is open source, and the system is compatible with all brands. Isobus must become a system integrator in order to not become obsolete, and new combinations of Isobus platforms and connected sensor systems are an integral part of its evolution.
Isomax helps simplify a whole range of machine tasks, machinery sales, recording of working hours, comfortable operation or special. Features include Connect ID, which automatically recognises attachments without screen input; built-in Micro Electro-Mechanical Systems sensor, which automatically and accurately documents working and driving hours; and geo-based data recording which simplifies the use of precision farming solutions.
Isomax will be available from November onwards via Agxtend certified dealers. The system offers users the opportunity to decide what they want to see and has several innovative features, including a zoom and slow motion function, live image transfer on mobile devices via Wi-Fi, the choice of various window arrangements plus the largest display on the market. Using the zoom function, users can choose precisely what they want to see from the whole video image.
It is also possible to show several images from the same camera on. This enables the user to zoom into different parts of the whole video image simultaneously but independently of each other. The cameras do not need to be readjusted by hand, as the user can zoom into the relevant video as requested. For improved function control users can run every video image in slow motion, which enables them to react quickly to changing harvest conditions and, for example, change settings of the separators.
SmartView also enables simple connection of a mobile device, a tablet or smart phone, using the Wi-Fi of the Grimme machine, which is available via its telemetry unit. The live image transfer. Video images and screenshots can be recorded and stored on any USB stick to document the various operating conditions. The inch touchscreen monitor can display up to 8 video images at the same time. It is possible to connect up to 24 cameras to the system.
This operation is the same when connecting to a tablet or smartphone. This feature ensures that when problems occur or settings are changed in any area, the corresponding video image is automatically displayed. A new feature is that, in addition to a large display of the event on the monitor, several video images can also be displayed in a user-defined window arrangement. This means the upstream and downstream areas can be displayed simultaneously. From , the SmartView system will be available as standard on the.
Ventor self-propelled potato harvester and as an option on the EVO trailed bunker harvester. The company plans to roll it out across further machines in the future. Latest models and brands feature at Hampshire demonstration day Only a few months after celebrating the opening of its newest Billingshurst, West Sussex depot, RW Crawford enjoyed excellent attendance to an autumn cultivations demonstration.
David Williams was there. RW Crawford opened the depot to provide sales and service support to customers in the area having taken over the operating territory from previous Agco dealer AJ Seale Ltd. The new area, which includes east Hampshire, West Sussex and south Surrey is looked after by a dedicated.
The working demonstration was. The new model has up to hp, and a transmission design similar to the most powerful Vario-series. This uses a pump and two motors to distribute drive independently to the front and rear axles, with constant adjustment in work maximising performance and grip. A new, larger cab offering extra. Also making its debut at a UK dealer event was a Valtra N-series tractor with pneumatic front axle suspension.
This was launched at Lamma this year but one of the first production machines was displayed in the Hampshire field. The option is available only for the N currently but will also be offered for N and N models. The first dealer demonstrators arrived in late August and many orders have been taken already.
Suspension on the N-series is similar to the larger T-series but the N-series has a single air bag with two shock absorbers. Neil explained that the farm is mixed arable cropping and livestock, but its principle enterprise is a large dairy unit in which Holstein cattle are milked 3 times daily. We have been running Fendt for 11 years and find the tractors comfortable, easy to drive, very reliable and fuel efficient.
A Vario is also operated which has recorded 7, hours to date and the farming business includes a farm further north in the Borders which runs a second Fendt on the mainly arable enterprise. The Horsch 36m sprayer has section control operated through the tractor terminal by Isobus link and we also run GeoSpread for our Kverneland sprayer using it too.
We recently moved to a strip-till drill and that is also Isobuscompatible. Luke Smallbone in the parts department seems very knowledgable and fitter Luke Morley has been out to us several times including over the Easter weekend when we had a breakdown during drilling and he had us working again four hours later. Growing workload For 58 years Agricultural Contracting Services ACS has operated from Midhurst, Sussex and services offered include a full range of agricultural contracting activities, explained manager Tristan Parks who was at the event with colleagues.
Three brands of tractor are operated currently which are a mix of owned and some hired in during busy periods. The business operates from a farm at Cowdray Estate where a dairy herd is milked by 2 robots and cropping includes ha of potatoes, grass, maize and cereals along with lupins and soya for the dairy.
There are 10 full-time staff and 5 additional casual workers are brought in for the busy summer period. Contracting services include arable and grassland tasks, forage harvesting and the company also specialises in amenity and polo ground maintenance. The firm also supplies hay and haylage delivered by 2 lorries, mainly to equine businesses in the region.
Members of the RW Crawford Fendt team were kept busy all day at the event. The contracting business provides a service to farmers within a mile radius of its base and specialises in muck spreading, spraying, cultivations, drilling, hedge cutting and combine harvesting. We work frequently on heavy clay soils but we also have lighter sand and need something capable of handling both.
At the moment, we use a power harrow drill combination behind a tractor with a front-mounted cultivator to create a seedbed, and are looking for an alternative. Gamble and parts manager Keith Jones. The contracting business is based close to the West Sussex and Hampshire border and all arable work is undertaken from planting to harvest. Some of the main activities include maize, grass and wholecrop forage harvesting, as well as hay and straw baling.
Wood chip for biomass is also a speciality and a hp Fendt Vario powers the wood-chipper. We have dealt with RW Crawford a few times since the new Billingshurst depot opened and have found the back-up very good, but even before it opened, when the service team had to operate from the Ashford depot in Kent, we found the service excellent. Neil is head of crop production for Barfoot Farms, based near Chichester, Sussex which farms approximately 2,ha of predominantly vegetable crops between Southampton and Chichester.
Most of the farmed land is rented and crops include wheat, winter rye, sweetcorn, asparagus, courgettes and tenderstem broccoli, with most of the vegetables grown for supermarkets. Each also has a seeding unit used mainly to establish cover crops. We run 3 sweetcorn cob harvesters which leave stubble 25—30cm high, then use 4 rotary toppers which are fuel and labour intensive. One of the first production machines was at the event, and attracted interest from potential users.
Task data can be transferred between terminals and the farm office by USB. All new tractors with SmartTouch are being supplied from the factory now with the latest version and current tractors with the existing SmartTouch system will receive an upgrade from their main dealers. Packed with tech yet effortless to use, the X6, X7 and X8 ranges give you everything you think you could need and then so much more.

The VT-Drive transmission has 4 speed ranges, from a minimum of 0. The 4-speed PTO and rear axle with reinforced final drives allow full power to be expressed, with a modular drive and automatically adjustable setup. Compared to Stage 4 emission levels, the VT-Drive transmission maintains the supporting frame with its characteristic cast iron structure and independent front suspension.

A holistic approach to crop establishment, Opti-Till delivers consistently good, high-yielding, profitable crops at a low cost; uses far less fuel; improves soil condition and reduces erosion, says the company. As a company we know about soils and how to get the best from them in the most eco-friendly, sustainable way, and will be highlighting that to visitors. These can over-work the soil, depleting soil biota, greatly reducing worm populations and activity, together with its ability to drain water away in wet weather and retain moisture in dry weather.
Similarly, the use of min-till systems and disc-type direct drills can result in soils which drain poorly and flood easily, creating crops with poor rooting structures and low yield potential. The TerraBlade is a low-cost, mechanical method of controlling weeds in combinable, band-sown crops.
Claydon Hybrid T6c The new 6m Hybrid T6c compact trailed drill, the latest addition to the Claydon range, will appeal to farmers who require a highly versatile and manoeuvrable 6m trailed drill. Capable of drilling typically 45ha per day behind a hp kW tractor, it is designed to appeal to farmers who prioritise lower cost and greater manoeuvrability over ultimate hopper capacity and output. Carried on the lower link arms, the T6c features a fully floating seeding chassis which follows field.
It does this regardless of the weight in the hopper, which is carried on a separate frame supported on centrally mounted depth wheels that run on clean, dry, uncultivated ground to avoid capping and compaction. The hopper can be used for seed only or divided between seed and fertiliser for combination drilling, a technique which gets crops off to a fast start and is popular with farmers and contractors throughout Europe and Scandinavia. The T6c uses 38mm-diameter pipes to transport seed and fertiliser from the hopper to the tines.
Versatile, flexible, simple, strong, easy to use and with low operating costs, the T6c will sow. This enables one drill to handle any crop establishment situation and minimises capital investment. The 19 individually adjustable tungsten carbide leading tines reduce compaction and aerate the soil. They also optimise drainage, form tilth for the seeding zone and create a uniform seeding depth.
The following seeding tines create additional tilth and place the seed at the ideal depth, above the drainage channel. This highly effective system encourages very deep, complex rooting structures to develop quickly, which minimises soil erosion and produces stronger, healthier crops with optimum yield potential.
The new drill can be adapted to whatever the customer requires to suit different crops and conditions. They can have the standard tine set-up with a variety of coulter and seeding boot options, and fertiliser can be placed down the front or rear tine. Shouldered front cutting discs come as standard but press wheels can be specified.
At the rear, the double toolbar can be equipped with a range of press wheel, board and harrow configurations to fully cover the seed and leave the soil smooth and level. Providing unparalleled versatility, the T6c folds to 2. News and an Isobus-compatible RDS Artemis control system which provides tramlining and variable seed rate capability. The specification also includes a hydraulically-driven fan, Claydon-designed distribution heads for improved flow and seeding accuracy, together with a tramline kit and hopper cover.
Options include a vision kit which incorporates work lights and cameras so that the operator can monitor the drill from the tractor cab, GPS variablerate seeding, blockage sensors, pre-emergence markers and brakes. The unit will give years of reliable service, has very low operating costs and offers great flexibility. It is designed for use on any tractor with a Cat II front linkage, travels at speeds of approximately 6kph and operates up to 30mm deep.
It is manually steered and can be used whenever soil conditions allow, covering up to 4ha per hour with an 8m unit. On farms that drill early, crops may be sufficiently well developed in the autumn to start using it then and the operation can continue in the spring whenever soil conditions allow, up to the stage where the crop might be compromised by further passes. Equipped with 26 blades, it joins 4 other TerraBlade models — the 3.
The TerraBlade is a low-cost, mechanical method of controlling weeds in combinable, bandsown crops. Band sowing at 30cm leaves a 14—15cm-wide unseeded strip between the rows which can be mechanically hoed. Designed for use in all types of strip seeded crops, the TerraBlade eliminates weeds from that A crop of wheat that has been hoed with the TerraBlade inter-row hoe.
This clears up any weeds that were missed by ag-chems, or where such products cannot be used, greatly reducing the return of weed seeds and the overall weed burden. By keeping the unseeded rows clear of weeds during the early stages of crop growth, competition for nutrients, light, air and water is reduced and the young plants can grow away strong and healthy.
TerraBlade has the potential to improve crop yields, drastically lower the potential for carry-over of weed seeds and reduce the risk of more resistant types developing. Following the power upgrade on the CR At the low end of the range, the CR7. The CR8. Continuous improvement to the CR Revelation range has resulted in an increase in its harvesting productivity of up to 25 per cent in the past 5 years, according to New Holland.
The harvest window of the CR can. The threshing efficiency of the inch rotor on the CR7. It also features an adjustable beater grate, which can be opened and closed in minutes. It has been opened further to provide 0. The new high-capacity grain elevator on the 14,litre grain tank of the CR9. This enables higher harvesting speeds in high yielding crops, boosting further the efficiency and productivity of these models.
The CR Revelation range complies. Combined with the long, hr service intervals, this contributes to the low operating costs of the combine. The cab interior of the CR Revelation has been refreshed with a new, darker colour scheme including brushed aluminium finish to the dashboard.
Meanwhile, improvements to the CX7 and CX8 combine range promise improved productivity. The new staggered drum improves threshing performance and increases the capacity. New controls enable the operator to manage the rotary separator and sieve opening, as well as chop or swath selection from the cab.
The colour of the grain tank has changed to yellow to improve visibility from the cab, making it easier for the operator to check grain quality. The Harvest Suite Ultra cab now combines comfort and ergonomics with a new automotiveinspired interior featuring a modern dark grey colour scheme.
They are suitable for all small grains and can be configured for maize. The staggered drum design achieves a smoother crop flow that results in lower in-cab noise and reduces blockages. It uses 16 per cent less total threshing power, reducing fuel consumption. This new feature. New Holland also offers a new lowspeed drum kit for those operations where grain quality is paramount.
This feature enables the operator to reduce the drum speed for an even lower instance of cracked grain. The sieve and pre-sieve are now remotely adjustable from the cab. The distance between the rotary separator and the concave of the Multi-Thresh system can now also be controlled remotely. The pivoting spout is controlled via the CommandGrip multifunction handle, which enables the operator to direct the crop with precision to achieve uniform trailer filling.
Other productivity-enhancing improvements include the header height control with pressure sensor input on the AutoFloat III to ensure even better ground following in uneven terrain. The CX7 and CX8 feature a new patented air-based distribution system for the twin-disc chaff spreader, which spreads the chaff across the full width of the header. The operator can control the speed of the spreader from the cab in response to crop or weather conditions, and switch between chopping and swathing at the touch of a button.
This reduces emissions while maintaining the fuel efficiency of the previous models.

Converting existing technology into smart machines So far, the possibility of utilising data from existing mechanical implements and feeding them into farm management systems has remained wishful thinking for most farmers.
Also, the technology available on the market is often too expensive or too complex, according to agrovision company Lemken, which has developed iQblue connect, a highly versatile retrofitting kit that converts existing technology into smart machines for modern farming processes. When combined with Tractor Implement Management TIM , the device allows numerous functions of purely mechanical implements to be automated and, at the same time, integrated into digital documentation.
TIM means that the tractor performs work functions that are triggered by the implement. Operators merely need a single iQblue connect module, which can be used with a range of implements. The module is connected to the tractor through its Isobus interface. It also features GPS and a mobile data connection for communication — for example with. Data is transmitted via the agrirouter, a cross-manufacturer platform for exchanging data between machines, farmers, contractors and software applications.
Depending on the intended use, a sensor kit is permanently installed on the implement to record the required information and pass it on to the iQblue connect module. No further equipment is needed on the implement, as the tractor is used for controlling implement functions. With the first available version of the application, a plough is fitted with a sensor to determine the current working width.
With semimounted cultivators, the working depth can be detected by a sensor. Additional applications for a range of different implements are being planned. Farmers only need a single iQblue connect module, as this mobile unit can be transferred quickly and easily from one. The system automatically adapts to the implement it is connected to at any given time. Lemken therefore offers a straightforward, inexpensive electronic tool which allows purely mechanical implements to be largely automated.
Three new offerings promise to provide farmers and contractors with high performance tools for efficient and low-emission spreading and distributing of liquid manure. Managing director Harald Vogelsang said the new developments "enable users to spread liquid manure economically and in compliance with the requirements of the fertilisation ordinance.
Trailing shoe linkage The BlackBird trailing shoe linkage features a flow-optimised liquid manure outlet, which deposits liquid manure more precisely than ever before, the company says. The long, beak-like shape helps to ensure a controlled, even flow of liquid manure through each applicator. This prevents the crops being contaminated during manure spreading. The pointed skid splits the crops more effectively and is better able to penetrate the soil.
This deposits The BlackBird has been available since June in working widths of 12 and 15m. At Agritechnica, Vogelsang will present a prototype with a working width of 24m. Precision distributor The enhanced ExaCut ECQ precision distributor ensures a more even distribution of liquid manure, Vogelsang explains.
It is already built into the BlackBird trailing shoe linkage and will be available for other applications after Agritechnica. Large diameters and flow distribution plates keep the flow under control and ensure a high distribution accuracy of the liquid manure. The large maintenance port allows easy access to all internal parts, reducing down time.
Thanks to the QuickService concept, maintenance can be completed in just a few minutes. The new rotor design and lower speeds result in a reduction of up to 50 per cent in the power requirement. This also protects the cutting blades, extending the service life by up to 50 per cent.
Gearless rotary lobe pumps Vogelsang will also present the VXGL gearless rotary lobe pump, which is the first in the agricultural sector with no synchroniser gearbox, which, according to Vogelsang, makes it run exceptionally smoothly. This is due to the four-wing lobes, which are designed to work in conjunction with the two parallel connected hydraulic motors to deliver constant torque on both pump shafts. This allows the transport capacity of the vehicle to be.
The compact construction of the rotary lobe pump makes installation on the vehicle easier and is easy to maintain, the company adds. The lobes are lighter and can also be installed individually, as no fitting keys are required. There is no need for a gear oil change. As a result, the rotary lobe pump promises to be low maintenance, causing less wear to the lobes, due to the lower shaft deflection. The is efficient and strong. It provides a quick and easy way to cut and clear through hard and softwood vegetation.
The TMK Tree Shear is small enough to fit on a 5 ton excavator and strong enough to be used on a 15 ton excavator Its easy fit bolt on brackets can be changed in minutes, giving the TMK Tree Shear the versatility to be used on a number of different size machines The unique design by Tenho Koponen creates a clean cut by grabbing the tree and pulling it across the fixed blade It then firmly secures the tree against the V clamp so it can be lifted and placed safely.

Cousins Precision Seedbed Harrow the best start you can give your beet. With councils and housing associations imposing bans on chemical usage and looking for environmentally friendly solutions where possible, the time for using chemicals and gallons of water to clean hard surfaces is gone, SPA says.
Conversations at the open day centred on this point, with the company emphasising that its chemical-free machinery is key for businesses that are looking to excel into the next decade. The company said it had not anticipated the value of the natural networking that developed amongst the visitors. The open plan design between the warehouse presentation and showroom proved to be a huge success, according to the company.
Visitors were then able to make their way back to the showroom to talk about how the machines could upgrade their business. However, the company says no two jobs are the same, with the list of variables including uneven surfaces, thick weeds, moss, delicate stone, tight corners and kerb edges, narrow pathways and steep inclines. SPA says Westermann understands the issues at hand and creates machines designed for a variety of job requirements, each with a unique solution.
The Westermann Weed Ripper, for example, will rip thick overgrown weeds out of the surface. Meanwhile the Westermann Moss Brush will remove moss and brighten up hard surfaces. A hot cup of tea and slice of cake is one thing, successful. But the chance to interact and engage with fellow professionals is invaluable. Maximising yield potential The innovative Tempo WideLining system promises to maximise yield potential.
Instead of shutting off row units to create tramlines, WideLining automatically changes the planter row spacing hydraulically to create two 1,mm tyre tracks, thereby ensuring all row units plant at full capacity. The row spacing between the tyre tracks will go from —mm. When the function is activated, the machine will calculate the field and automatically adjust the row units to create tramlines based on the working width of the liquid manure spreader. How WideLining works in practice, for example, is establishing silage maize with an 8-row planter and using a liquid manure spreader with 18m working width, the drill should plant 8.
The technology will be available on Tempo V from the second half of A performance standard The company is also launching the NZ Extreme heavy duty tine harrow. The Design focus has been largely on the tines of the new heavy-duty harrow. An intense vibrating tine action combined with extreme stiffness and durability is capable of crushing clods, while maintaining an exact depth and completely level field.
To ensure precise field contour following and to be able to adapt to the field surface and maintain depth, the NZ Extreme is built from a five section frame. This is enhanced by an innovative weight transfer, ingenious wheel setup and heavy machine design. A limited number of NZ Extreme machines will be available in selected markets in , with production starting in Central-fill Tempo drill A new central-fill function is an option for the high speed Tempo L planter to increase capacity of.
It will be on show for the first time at Agritechnica , with 12—24 row unit versions Tempo L 12, Tempo L 16, Tempo L 18 and Tempo L 24 available on the market in early Central filling means that instead of loading seed into each of the row units, the operator will only have to fill one large central 3,litre seed hopper.
The Tempo L drill will then take care of seed distribution to each row unit. The central-fill feature works as a pressurised system, constantly feeding the seed meters, at which point the patented PowerShoot technology ensures excellent establishment, the company says. Therefore, it is vital to use a quality product, according to lubricant specialists the Witham Group. As winter looms, anti-freeze and coolants prices are set to rise considerably due to some unique market influences.
For example, there is likely to be an increase in demand from China following US trade talks, which will create a tightening of supply across Europe. It is expected that Brexit will continue to have an adverse effect on the strength of the pound. Brexit could trigger not only finished material price increases due to currency changes, but also a possible delay in bringing tankers from the EU into the UK.
While the weather is an unknown factor, extreme cold spells as we head into winter would lead to increases in demand — inevitably putting pressure on tightening suppliers. The Witham Group says it has secured good rates on bulk orders from coolant manufacturers, to ensure there is enough supply at the best price for customers.
In addition, they offer a range of three products, to suit different budgets and applications. The company provides officially approved OEM coolant products for trucks, buses and vans, as well as cars, construction machines and agricultural tractors.

With a displacement of almost 3 litres per cylinder, this promises a stable power curve with sustained torque, giving the Jaguar the best figures in its class with regard to fuel consumption per tonne of harvested material. The power output of the and models has also increased.
Updates to the Orbis maize headers include a makeover for the Orbis , which now shares many of the new features initially introduced on the larger Orbis SD and last year. The has a working width of 4. Newly designed fingers ahead of the knives ensure low-loss crop collection and feature points which can be removed for harvesting laid maize. The new design also adds significant strength to the fingers, which will help, especially in weedy conditions.
The new knives with their crescent-shaped blade deliver top cutting quality in all crops, says Claas. The latest Cebis touchscreenbased control concept has been adopted across the whole Jaguar range. The central crop feeding tower rotors have been repositioned to improve crop flow and are now angled forward to aid crop feed. They have also been moved further apart, so increasing the feed channel width to allow crop to be fed into the full width of the feed rollers and chopping cylinder.

Control parasites and protect performance at housing Housing is an ideal time to treat cattle for parasites and this can make a significant difference to productivity levels. So says Boehringer Ingelheim Animal Health vet Sioned Timothy, who met with Rachael Porter to explain that parasitic infections are one of the most common reasons for poor performance and economic loss in cattle farming, even in the absence of clinical disease.
Reduced feed intake, weight gain and impaired fertility can be attributed to a parasitic burden in growing cattle. And in replacement heifers the impact of parasites can extend into their first lactation, with reduced milk production.
This requires an average daily weight gain of between 0. Before considering which. Monitoring growth rates throughout the year will help to identify individuals that may require anthelmintic treatment. This helps to reduce pasture contamination at turnout, thereby lessening parasitic infection in the next grazing season. A targeted approach to parasite. Some combination treatments offer convenience by enabling the removal of a wider range of parasites,. So care should be taken to preserve it for use in sheep, where there is no other alternative for treatment of acute fluke disease.
These treatments may need repeating at the appropriate time after the initial housing dose to ensure that all juvenile and adult fluke are removed and cattle are turned out fluke free. Dairy cows and heifers in calf have more restricted options for liver fluke control due to milk withdrawal periods.
Advice should be taken from an animal health advisor. Finally, consider external parasites such as mites and lice, and ensure your chosen housing treatment provides adequate control. Warm cattle sheds can provide the ideal environment for the multiplication and spread of these parasites which cause itching and welfare issues, and can contribute to reduced performance through stress. Wessex International is a trading name of Wessex International Machinery. Livestock Adsorbent helps minimise mycotoxin risk A mycotoxin adsorbent, developed to be effective against the 11 most commonly occurring mycotoxins in animal feeds, has been launched by UFAC-UK.
Mycotoxins are produced by moulds and fungi that colonise feedstuffs. And, even at low levels, they will reduce cow performance. Combining activated clay minerals with glycerine, the company claims that Mycotrap offers enhanced mycotoxin control and improved liver function when added.
Independent tests show that the adsorbent has good binding capacity for a broad range of commonly occurring mycotoxins, including aflatoxins, fumonisin, DON and ZEN. It contains a mineral complex that effectively adsorbs the majority of mycotoxins known to cause reduced productivity and increased disease risks in all livestock. Much has changed since. The company now employs around staff from its base near Truro in Cornwall and exports to over 50 countries worldwide on a regular basis.
Continual investment in production technology utilising robot welding, CNC machining and powder coat paint has positioned the brand as a market leader in the straw processing sector on an international stage — with Tomahawk machines found in specialist applications such as landscaping and processing materials for green biomass energy, as well as agriculture.
