  • Helping farmers get more out of their land today… and tomorrow

    • An all new premium agricultural tyre designed for combine harvesters
    • Even at low inflation pressure offers high load capacity with maximum soil protection

    • Delivers fast, reliable and efficient operation

    • Patented technologies to boost traction and minimise soil disturbance

    • Available in sizes for a wide variety of harvester types

    Bridgestone, the world’s largest tyre and rubber manufacturer, has expanded its range of high-performance, premium agricultural tyres with the launch of the all-new VT-COMBINE tyre. Designed specifically for Cyclic Field Operations (CFO), with Improved Flexion (IF), VT-COMBINE offers 20% more load compared with conventional standard tyres (ETRTO standards). This innovative new tyre gives farmers additional speed during CFO, 15 km/h instead of the 10km/h for conventional tyres, resulting in efficient use of time during the most critical period of the farming cycle. With its high load capacities, excellent traction thanks to the new patented involute lug design, durability, comfort and lower soil compaction, the VT-COMBINE helps farmers boost their productivity while protecting their most valuable resource: their fertile topsoil.

     


     

  • Drone technology is becoming increasingly widespread in the farming sector, but it can be hard to keep up with new developments – or even get started in the first place.

    Whether you’re new to drones or looking to upgrade to the latest equipment, a day at the Cereals Event will provide everything you need to know. This year its Drone Zone is bigger and better than ever, with an on-site flying cage for short flights and demonstrations, and a nearby arable field for longer flights, complete with a large screen to display data being collated and how it can be used.

  • Farm491, a high-tech, modern, cutting-edge enterprise hub at the Royal Agricultural University (RAU) promoting agritech innovation has launched, with access to its office space now available.

     

  • Drone AG, a drone-assisted precision agriculture firm, announce a new partnership with South African data analytics company Aerobotics, to provide weather-proof agricultural drone systems and a unique support service, alongside powerful cloud-based farm management software.

    On 1st March 2017, Drone AG launched a new enterprise-level drone sales and software programme for UK agronomists and agribusinesses. A recently developed quad-copter, named ‘Storm Agri Pro’, will be the focus of sales, being rain-proof, wind resilient, robust and carrying the latest sensors for agricultural remote sensing activities. To compliment the new hardware, data processing will be handled by software partner, Aerobotics, through their cloud-based platform, AeroView.

  • Drones are already being used in agriculture to monitor and map fields and crops, but at Harper Adams University research is underway to look into the viability of using drones to complete tasks in the field, such as seeding and spraying.

     

    The research is being carried out by the university’s Engineering Research team who are focusing on the practicality of using drones as a Precision Farming implement.

  • EASY!Force and Easy!Lock are new patent-packed concepts that can be retrofitted to any Kärcher pressure washer up to 300 bar and will be supplied as standard on new machines going forward.

  • John Deere’s new record-breaking 8400R tractor makes its first appearance at the Cereals Event in 2017.

    The new 400hp 8400R tractor recently set three new world records for fuel efficiency (field and transport) and maximum drawbar performance at the DLG test station in Germany. It beat its nearest competitors by almost 23 per cent in drawbar performance and lowered the combined fluid consumption figure for field work to only 247g/kWh.

  • Arable farmers could maximise returns by including specialist crops in their rotations – and they can find out how at the Cereals Event 2017.

    As pressure to diversify and increase profits mounts, this year’s Cereals event (14-15 June) will see the addition of the brand new SpecialistCrop Zone. “We want to provide visitors with something a little extra this year,” says event marketing manager, Natalie Reed. “With high input prices and volatile grain prices, farmers’ margins are being squeezed. Crop diversification which provides added value but is still practical has never been more relevant.”

  • A research project at Harper Adams University looking at increasing the yields of a special type of barley is producing promising results.

    Naked barley was an important crop in the Bronze Age, but since then has almost been forgotten in the UK. The varieties of naked barley adapted to the British climate have long since been lost, and those from further afield perform poorly in wetter cooler summers, but its health benefits are so great that a research project is underway to produce a variety that is more versatile.

  • A precision agriculture goes along with modern tools, adapted to the most common uses but also, more and more, with a limited costs directed development and the respect of environment.
    While reducing spacing of the injectors to 37,5 cm (previously 40 cm), this results a more homogeneous slurry spreading  without increasing the spread quantities.

  • new hydraulic extensions on Drakkar

    22-Feb-2017 by: Gordon Hardy Joskin SA

    The Drakkar range is highly successful also thanks to the development of the 150 cm high bodies.  These models have been designed to reduce the loading height (for potatoes, vegetables, manure, etc.). It means that the standard volume is of course reduced.

     

  • Haymarket Media Group today announces that its Cereals and Fruit Focus exhibitions are to be run in a joint venture partnership with Comexposium, one of the world’s leading food and farming event organisers.
  • At Harper Adams University the ‘Hands Free Hectare’ (HFH) project, which will see a crop exclusively farmed by robots for the first time in the world, is well under-way, with the team having already selected the key machinery required to reach their goal.

    The team of three engineers aims to grow and harvest a hectare of spring barley without setting foot into the field. Since the project launch in October, the team have been busy determining the specifications for the equipment, along with purchasing.

  • Get ahead in 2017 – identify your ‘limiting factors’

    Nitrogen is undoubtedly the number one nutrient in the search for higher yields.

    However, the need to identify other limiting factors that might prevent a crop from realising its full potential is a key lesson to be learnt from Yara’s Big Dataset, believes Jon Telfer, Development Manager at Yara Analytical Services.

    Furthermore, the earlier these limiting factors can be discovered  and, where possible, addressed, the better the outcome in terms of yield and productivity. 

  • Soil health is becoming increasingly important to farmers, affecting crop vigour and yields, bio-diversity, and profitability. But it’s not often that arable producers get below ground level to really see what’s going on, which is why Cereals 2017 is enabling them to do just that.
  • Cereals is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year, and is set to offer visitors more technology and practical knowledge than ever before, demonstrating that farming is very much thriving in the UK.
