Precision implement steer at Manterra Hessleskew farm

Very relevant to the Crop protection debate this wide spaced ,perfectly straight in row, Oil Seed Rape allows accurate  spraying, using embedded data in the  precision kit ,to use only one third of the crop protection product. It also minimises any damage to other insects in the environment so allowing nature predators to survive . The winter wheat establishment is impressive . Both crops can  be mechanically weeded .
