Precision Farming

  • The soil on all the land we farm is routinely tested for pH, P&K allowing us to variably apply nutrients to target them where they are most needed.
  • Seed rate and nitrogen applications can also be targeted according to soil type and crop biomass.
  • Mainline machinery including tractors, combines and the sprayer are fitted with some form of GPS to optimise efficiency and reduce operater fatigue.

Farm Visits

  • Many visits have been hosted over the years and we are now a host farm for RHET.
