“Yorkshire’s biggest agricultural machinery show is all set to go ahead with organisers reporting a surge of tradestand bookings as further coronavirus restrictions look unlikely to happen.
The Yorkshire Agricultural Machinery Show (YAMS) which is due to take place at York Auction Centre on Wednesday, February 2, hosts around 200 trade stands showcasing the latest in farming machinery and technology.

But he stressed, the safety of everyone exhibiting and attending the event was of paramount importance.

Farming charities RABI and RSABI have stressed to the sector the importance of working together to normalise the conversation around mental health in farming at the Oxford Farming Conference (OFC).
Collaborating on a presentation for OFC 2022, the two charities are keen to encourage everyone working across agriculture to play their part to help break the stigma attached to talking about our mental wellbeing.
Collective action is needed to ensure that existing invisible barriers, which can make reaching out for support feel like a weakness rather than a strength are removed, and encourage more farming people to reach out for support before challenges become crises.
“The 2022 conference theme is ‘Routes to Resilience’, and whilst the findings...

Valmet is a name that sounds vaguely familiar to many, most are aware of it as the precursor to Valtra, but quite how the company changed from one name to other is not so commonly known.
The company had something of an identity crisis in that it had an uncertain livery and it wasn’t always clear where it originated.
Its ownership has also, apparently, been rapidly passed around various corporations in the latter part of the last century.
Embraced by AGCO
It wasn’t until 2004 that it at last found some stability when AGCO purchased it from Kone, the latter being a conglomerate more usually associated with the production of lifts and escalators, which remains as its core business today...

Highest untreated yield and strong disease resistance should give Lightning an edge
New two-row winter barley looks another winner from the Elsoms-Ackermann stable
With a December 1st ex-farm spot price of £204/t, up from £142/t a year ago, and with a solid reputation as being one of the best entries for oilseed rape, winter barley still merits serious consideration in future rotations says John Miles, Seed Technical Manager for agronomy group Agrii.
“Winter barley still has a massive role to play in propping up the current rape area. Given the high prices achievable for OSR crops right now, growers would be wise to focus on what precedes rape in their rotations and there’s little doubt that winter barley, with its earlier harvest date, can often make a significant difference...
With the highest septoria resistance rating for a milling wheat Mayflower looks set for success
With the UK agricultural sector’s focus firmly fixed on sustainability, the addition of new Group 2 milling wheat Mayflower to the 2022/23 Recommended List (RL) should be of serious interest to growers and agronomists intent on sourcing new varieties suitable to a reduced fungicide programme based on RL data says Milika Buurman, Head of Wheat Breeding at Independent seed breeder Elsoms Seeds.
Milika added: “At the recent AHDB Agronomists’ Conference Chloe Morgan, Arable Crop Pathologist for ADAS, highlighted Mayflower as one of only four varieties on the RL deemed suitable for a reduced fungicide programme based on current RL data. With an excellent overall disease package, a very...
