Horsch UK understands the needs of professional farmers from cultivating the soil through to crop protection application. As farmers ourselves, we design, develop and manufacture innovative, award-winning technology that increases crop yields and reduces establishment costs by offering precision, performance and reliability.
Our singulation unit technology for cereals can consistently sow a single grain twice per second at 12kph for ideal seed density. BoomControl Pro redefines exact sprayer boom positioning, holding it rock steady at less than 40cm above the crop at speeds up to 30kph, even on hilly terrain. Our pneumatic individual nozzle control technology with 25cm spacing enables intelligent spray application for excellent crop wetting and penetration.
Yara UK LTD
At CropTec Yara will be demonstrating their range of precision tools available to help simplify fertilizer decisions on farm and in field.
The Yara N Sensor forms part of the Precision Farming solution offered by Yara, alongside N Plan and N Tester, as a solution to real-time variable rate nitrogen applications by adjusting rates according to crop growth whilst travelling across a field. As a result the N Sensor is designed to deliver precise levels of input according to the crop’s requirements helping to both reduce environmental effects whilst maximising potential profit. With a dedicated group of scientists at Yara’s R&D base at Hanninghof carrying out trial work annually to improve the calibrations and increase the range of options for use, N Sensor truly is backed by Science.

Bayer as an investor in the future of British & Irish Farmers
There is no doubt the immediate future for arable growers in the UK is not without its challenges. Low commodity prices exacerbated by currency effects and increasingly difficult-to-control black-grass or cabbage stem flea beetle are contributing to a tough outlook.
Although commodity prices show no immediate sign of recovery, the long-term need for productive agriculture is not in question. The global population is increasing, and climate change means that the increase in food production will have to be achieved on a smaller land area. Predictions by Rabobank suggest there will be a 60% increase in global food demand by 2050 compared to the early 2000s.
As one of the world’s leading innovative crop science companies in the areas of seeds, crop protection and non-agricultural pest control, Bayer believes it has role to play in helping farmers with an outstanding range of solutions.
We invest accordingly; for every £10 that a farmer spends on a Bayer product, £1 goes straight back into research and development.
And that investment is delivering; in the next few years, Bayer will be introducing, approval permitting, new cereal fungicides and herbicides, new sugar beet herbicides, products for aphid control, blight, and potato cyst nematode control; and in seed, exciting new varieties of oilseed rape and wheat.
Add to this our work educating consumers about agriculture and training of farmers, future farmers and the wider farming industry so they have access to the skills they will need in the future to be successful food producers. We believe the future of British Farming is bright, and we will continue to invest in it; which is why we support the CropTec event as proud sponsor of the black-grass hub and the Seed Breeding Seminar.
