2018 is a milestone year for Hutchinsons, marking eight decades of service to UK agriculture as one of the country’s leading agronomy companies.
Recognised as providing the highest standards of agronomic advice to farmers and growers, together with the range of high quality services and products that they require, Hutchinsons agronomists know that cutting edge advice backed by great service, all geared to your specific farm situation, is key.
Good technical agronomy that brings about profitable and sustainable crop production is at the heart of the Hutchinsons business, and fundamental to this is the relationship between the agronomist and his farmer client says Ed Barnatt, Business Development Manager.
“Being a good agronomist is not just about walking crops and making the right recommendations, my clients want me to be involved in all aspects of the farm so that decisions are made on a fully informed basis. After all it’s a team effort focussed on taking that particular farm business forward.”
However, to do this, he recognises that the complexity of agronomic decision-making in today’s climate of tighter environmental regulations, climatic challenges and changing disease threats, makes it vital for an agronomist to have access to a wide range of technical expertise and information.
“By being part of a leading national agronomy company, Hutchinsons agronomists are better placed to access this level of support, whilst still delivering the highest quality and most up-to-date technical advice to farming clients in today’s volatile environment,” he says.
Hutchinsons brand new Omnia precision agronomy app “Connect’ will be launched at this year’s Cereals Event.
Connect is a cost-effective solution that has been designed to simplify precision farming by connecting you to your machine to enable variable rate control. The iPad app allows you to seamlessly and instantly send variable application maps created in Omnia to the field, and also controls the spreader, sprayer or drill.
“The advantage of this process is that it streamlines precision farming operations, giving you greater control and improving your efficiency,” says Oliver Wood, Hutchinsons Precision Technology Manager.
What’s really significant and valuable about the app is that Connect is compatible with a wide range of machinery including Amazone, KRM, Kuhn, Vaderstad, Horsch, Mzuri, Sky, RDS and more.
Hutchinsons Healthy Soils is the new and innovative service that measures and monitors soil health and will be a major focus at the Cereals Event. Healthy Soils Live! will see Hutchinsons Healthy Soils expert Dick Neale, below ground in his very own soil pit!
With samples of different soils, vast numbers of worms and a spade, Dick Neale and his team of soil health experts will be available during the course of the Cereals event to talk through any questions or issue that you may have with your farm’s soil health, and how to manage it to improve crop production on your farm.
