Cutting the cost of cultivations, the last saving for cereal growers?

Cutting the cost of cultivations, the last saving for cereal growers?

Proceedings of the Brighton Crop Protection Conference, Weeds (Vol. 1): 113-118

The need for a reappraisal of the use of reduced cultivations on medium to heavy soil farms in the UK is discussed. With machinery and cultivations accounting for 40% of fixed costs, less dependance on the plough is required. Both previous and current work together with advisory experience indicate a range of opportunities for shallower cultivations even where straw is not burnt.
