10 staff members of HGCA, PCL and HDC participated in a Be Precise training course at Crowmarsh Battle farms in South Oxfordshire on Wednesday 21st March. The aim of the day was to expand the practical knowledge of precision farming with key members of staff rather than it just being a theoretical process.
I delivered the morning session, which was a Be Precise training course and I was ably assisted by Philip Chamberlain who owns the farm. He was able to provide real practical input of what he’s doing on the farm during the classroom session before we all moved outside to see tractors in action.
Then everyone had a ride on either a Cat tractor or the JCB Fasttrac, both equipped with RTK steering systems to demonstrate the steering systems and how they work in reality.
Overall a great day for everyone and huge smiles on everyone’s face after they had been on the tractors and the steering demonstrations. Thanks to Philip and his team at Crowmarsh for the use of their facilities.
