Services and technologies to allow growers to work towards sustainability and profitability
A range of Services from Hutchinsons at LAMMA
Looking for a variable rate drill conversion kit? How to navigate new environmental legislation? Or manage Carbon? Or how best to use your nitrogen next season?
Then come to the Hutchinsons stand at LAMMA.
As a business, Hutchinsons have been investing heavily in developing services and technologies to allow growers to work towards sustainability and profitability, in a climate of rising input costs.
Join us at LAMMA to speak to us about these services and technologies, all of which have been trialled, tested and validated at a farm-scale level at Hutchinsons’ Helix Farms.
Converting a standard land metered drill into a variable rate drill has never been easier or more affordable with the Hutchinsons variable rate drill conversion kit, Omnia E-Seed.
Omnia E-Seed is the first stand-alone variable rate drill conversion kit that fits to any standard drill and does exactly what it says on the box - it enables a standard land metered drill to be converted simply and efficiently into a variable rate drill.
Omnia E-Seed will be on the Hutchinsons stand at LAMMA so come along and find out more.
TerraMap Carbon is the first ever carbon mapping service to provide the most accurate baseline measurement of both organic and active carbon in the soil and is now available to UK farmers.
How can the carbon measurements be used? Within the Omnia Carbon management tool it is possible to create different rotation scenario’s from types of cropping and variety to stewardship and management practices and see first hand the projected CO2 impact and financial performance for each scenario.
Future Services within Omnia will offer the ability to also create potential cropping scenario’s to calculate costs of production allowing users to make decisions on how to manage both carbon and profit before putting a crop into the ground.
Our Omnia team will be at LAMMA and happy to discuss any of these options.
Environmental Services: The switch from direct support to environmentally-focused payments presents massive challenges over coming years. Hutchinsons is helping growers plan the best way forward to benefit from the opportunities available by evaluating the many stewardship options to help farmers make more informed decisions.
Agroecology Services. Having launched its first Agroecology Helix Farm that is looking solely at the principles and practices of Agroecology, come and talk to us about some of the bigger picture questions that we are looking at.
For more information on these Services or any other crop production issues, please visit the Hutchinsons stand during LAMMA where technical experts will be on hand to answer any of your questions.
We asked Hutchinsons:
What do you think will be the most influential factor(s) for UK farming to achieve NetZero by 2050?
"Optimising what we use and how we use it. Something that needs to be kept in mind is that if something isn’t financially sustainable, it isn’t sustainable at all. For that reason, we believe that the most important factor for achieving NetZero by 2050 will be a push towards better informed and more integrated management of farm resources. But it’s worth remembering that if you can’t measure something, you can’t manage it – so to reach NetZero by 2050, it’s essential that we benchmark what we have now if we want to manage and improve our resources effectively."
What role do you think that precision farming, use of data, autonomous machinery, robotics, alternative fuels etc will play in this?
"Precision tools like Omnia will almost certainly become crucial for planning, logging and optimising on-farm activities. We are already developing tools to make it possible for growers to precisely plan out cropping scenarios using cost of production data - enabling far more informed decision making on how to optimise both carbon and profit, even before putting a crop into the ground."
