Then come to the Hutchinsons stand at Croptec.

An ever challenging farming agenda encompassing questions around sustainability and profitability, in a climate of rising input costs and the drive to manage carbon, are all hot topics for the UK’s arable farmers.

As a business, Hutchinsons have been investing heavily in developing services and technologies to allow growers to work towards these goals, all of which have been trialled, tested and validated at a farm-scale level at Hutchinsons’ Helix Farms.

TerraMap Carbon
is the first ever carbon mapping service to provide the most accurate baseline measurement of both organic and active carbon in the soil and is now available to UK farmers.
How can the carbon measurements be used? Within the Omnia Carbon management tool it is possible to create different rotation scenario’s from types of cropping and variety to stewardship and management practices and see first hand the projected CO2 impact and financial performance for each scenario.

Future Services within Omnia will offer the ability to also create potential cropping scenario’s to calculate costs of production allowing users to make decisions on how to manage both carbon and profit before putting a crop into the ground.

Environmental Services: The switch from direct support to environmentally-focused payments presents massive challenges over coming years. Hutchinsons is helping growers plan the best way forward to benefit from the opportunities available by evaluating the many stewardship options to help farmers make more informed decisions at a trial site at Warboys, Cambs.

Agroecology Services: This autumn sees the launch of the first Hutchinsons Agroecology Helix Farm that will focus solely on the principles and practices of Agroecology. The aim is to look to answer some of the bigger picture questions surrounding Agroecology practices.

For more information on these Services or any other crop production issues, please visit the Hutchinsons stand during Croptec, where technical experts will be on hand to answer any questions.
