Proof that Omnia
Precision Agronomy
boosts profits
Results of trials last autumn prove that the use
of Omnia Precision Agronomy results in yield
increases and lower costs of production.
Nick Strelczuk
PRECISION TECHNOLOGY SPECIALIST
By comparing variably drilled wheat alongside a farm standard rate on
split fields and taking them to yield, the statistically-valid work has proven
that using Omnia Precision Agronomy can increase yields by an average
of 0.6t/ha, worth £99/ha (based on wheat at £165/t), says Nick Strelczuk,
precision technology specialist for Hutchinsons.
In some areas, this went up to 1.4t/ha or £240/tonne which is a significant
increase - and was achieved with lower costs of production.
After significant investment in our own very distinctive system
to bring precision agronomy to UK arable farms, it is hugely
satisfying to see on-farm trials proving it delivers very
worthwhile yield improvements and reduced growing costs.
