Andrew has achieved a reduction in establishment time of up to 65% in both rape and wheat.
In 2003 Andrew completed his phasing out of the plough and converted to a minimum tillage approach using the Simba Solo on soil types ranging from light heath land to heavy clay and on crop types to include; wheat, barley, rape, spring beans and sugar beet. This bold move has resulted in better seed beds, higher yields and higher profitability.
The wrong choice of cultivation machinery can cause unnecessary compaction therefore reducing yield due to lack of nutrients and moisture. Roy Ward Farms will assess your field traffic and create a plan for improvement.
