480ha arable, Gravel and chalk to London and Red clays, Hertfordshire
“Our soils range from gravel and chalk to London and red clays. Drilling in the right conditions is essential and the Claydon gives us time to do exactly that. Before, investment in machinery was enormous and on our very stony land the wear and tear on soil-engaging equipment was very high, so the cost of establishing crops was very expensive.
The Claydon drill has greatly reduced our establishment costs, made a huge difference to timeliness and is really beneficial in helping to reduce slug and blackgrass problems. Since we started using it, the soil is becoming noticeably more friable every year and worm populations have increased dramatically!”
