Our vision is precision farming with controlled inputs coming from our own database of information collected from soil scanning, yield mapping, nutrient sampling, nitrogen maps and other recorded data such as blackgrass.
This would all be administered from a more refined Controlled Traffic Farming (CTF) system. Working alongside and using the environment as a tool to aid our farming business. An example of this is the use of green catch crops and pollen and nectar strips.
Our Future Vision
In years to come we will start to see the use of Wide Span CTF systems which will provide the ultimate CTF system, minimising wheelings further and enabling controlled headland traffic. This is all probably more than a decade away but we need to start working towards streamlining our current systems and operations.
There will be many challenges such as wide span combines and grain handling but all of these things are achievable in time.
