The first day of CTF at Ancroft

This picture shows the first day of CTF at Ancroft. The silver tape marks where the edge of the crop needs to be for the combine to be on 8m. The driver (father) adjusts the lazer from the cab to keep the combine on track. Very simple but effective. The other combine has a GPS auto-steer system fitted. Note the tractor running in the wheelings.

Richard Reed farms a mix of owned and contract farmed land and contracting totalling 1170ha with his father near Berwick-upon-Tweed. He grows winter wheat for biscuit wheat or distilling, oilseed rape, winter barley for malt, feed, and seed, spring barley, and tried 3ha spring beans in 2014. During the Monitor Farm programme, Richard hopes to look at improving soil structure and condition, work force succession, grain marketing and machinery and establishment costs.
