Removing stone from a field without harming the grass

Hi Everyone

I need some advise! I want to remove cotswolds Brash stone from a field and keep the grass in tact. It has been suggested to use a Chain Harrow to do this.

I want to put tents down on the field and make it good enough for camping but need to remove some of the stone in certain areas.

Please advise the best way to do this?

Thank you

Good old Cotswold brash!!! Only way we've found is to cultivate like hell in the spring and run a stone picker through it, you do that and you'll have more stone than you know what to do with!
But seeing as you wish to keep the grass intact then it'll be a handball job i'm afraid, not sure a spring tine will do owt.

Get a potato grower in with stone picking equipment and cart it off - Will need to plan by first ploughing in autumn and getting some frost in the ground beforehand though....

We have a lot of stones and it is amazing how regular rolling and allowing the grass to Thicke will cover them.
However if they are already on the surface then time to bend over with your gloves on.

Claas has taken a minority shareholding in the Dutch autonomous tractor startup company, AgXeed B.V.

The new company has developed a tractor designed to be autonomous from the ground up, rather than try to adapt existing machines, or create smaller robots dedicated to a limited range of tasks.

AgXeed’s pilot machine is a diesel hybrid powered unit on tracks which uses a suite of software which, the company claims, is easily scalable.

Like many small technology start-ups seeking to gain a foothold in the machinery market, the company also points to the product as being part of a larger system rather than just another way of performing standard tasks
