Case Studies

These are just a small selection of Case Studies, the most recent (Case Study 5), showing just one way of many in which CTF can be achieved. If you are interested in finding out more, there are many more Case Studies as well as calculators, design tools and a menu driven route to CTF available in our Member's area. At just £90 a year, can you afford not to know the important facts about satellite guidance systems, even if you aren't considering CTF? All this and much more in our Member's area.

Case Study 3

360 ha on silty loam and limestone brash soils with crops grown principally for seed. These include:

  • Sugar beet (grown on the lighter soils)
  • Winter wheat
  • Peas (grown for vining seed)
  • Spring beans
  • Spring and winter oilseed rape
  • Oats
  • Linseed
  • Herbage (likely that this will be replaced by grass margins if 5 m headlands are allowed under the new E.U. set-aside scheme)

Case Study 5

1300 ha managed as a joint venture. Soils mostly clayey river alluvium with some light and organic clay over gypsum. Cropping mostly oilseed rape (OSR) and wheat.
Planning to convert whole area to CTF in autumn 2009. Traditional minumum tillage will be replaced by no-till. Anticipated up to 50% saving in fuel, lower capital investment and reduced power on the farm.
