1. Farmers, growers, processors and industry representatives are being asked for their views from 31 August for 10 weeks on the role of the Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board (AHDB).

    The AHDB is a UK statutory levy board, funded by farmers, growers and others in the supply chain. As we leave the EU, there is an opportunity to ensure that the sectors that the AHDB covers are as competitive as possible. This review will look at the AHDB’s purpose and priorities, its strengths and where improvements need to be made.

    This is a joint 10-week exercise covering England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. The request for views will close on 9 November.

    Haven't got one myself but have heard how people were impressed after having a demo.Several Krone big balers have been sold in our area,don't know exactly which models,and have taken out other makes so I guess they are gaining a good reputation .

    There's a smaller 1 working with a contractor round here seems to have a major blow up every season but I've no more details than that just seen it lying in a lot of pieces in the dealer regularly

    A very good baler from a drivers perspective but not so good for the fitter - a lot of awkward bits and working on the VFS is a mission.
    Where are you based and do you know the age / bale count of the baler?

    There's one on the farm the other side of town. Next door but one farm-wise to me. It seems to be going very well and is on its fourth season this year I think. I'll ask him next time I see him.

    Have krone made anything that is regarded as the best of its type!! The tedders are crap, they cannot even manage to lift the mower swath cleanly off the floor, the foragers are sold on under cutting Claas and when your into them you cannot get out. Andrew who replied above bought a krone baler and when he eventually managed to sell it I asked him if he would buy another and he said no, so make of that what you will.
