Dispose of your silage wrap for just £25 and help RABI

Harby Agriculture are offering FREE collection of silage wrap as part of a National Waste Amnesty to celebrate its 10th Birthday.

Farmers can register to host a waste hub where silage wrap can be aggregated into whole lorry loads for free collection. The host farmer must have some clean concrete to tip the silage wrap on and must load the lorry. In return he gets free disposal of his own wrap. The host farmer invites other farming friends or neighbours to use the hub. These guest farmers pay a one off registration fee of £25 from which £5 will go to RABI, they can then bring as much silage wrap as they want.

We want to encourage farmers to do the ‘right thing’ commented Harby Agriculture Managing Director Paul Towns. Its 10 years since the waste legislation was introduced. Farmers are recycling more than ever but a significant percentage is still not recycled. We feel a free one off ‘waste amnesty’ shows Harby’s commitment to UK agriculture and will encourage farmers to increase their recycling rates.  It will also benefit the RABI charity.

To organise a hub on your farm please visitwww.harby.co.uk  and fill the online form. This offer is open now. The collections will be between 1st June 2015 and 13th July 2015.

Woldmarsh Trials Open Day – 30th June 2015

Following on from the success of last year’s trials open day Woldmarsh are holding an open day at Rawcliffe Bridge, near Goole. This will be held on Tuesday 30th June in conjunction with BASF & Cropco Ltd. Members who attended last year’s event found it thoroughly enjoyable and highly informative.

The site at Rawcliffe Bridge has wheat variety and replicated fungicide trials alongside BASF’s environmental crop trials. The wheat plots include established and new upcoming varieties. The wheat plots have a companion crop surrounding them which last year was beans. The environmental crops include a wide range of options that are long established and can fit all ELS / HLS or new Environmental Stewardship Schemes.

The day will follow the same format as last year with refreshments on arrival a tour of the plots and lunch. The tours will be led, once again, by Graham Hartwell from BASF and John Poulton at Cropco Ltd who were both entertaining and highly knowledgeable last year. Graham Hartwell was highly enthusiastic about the environmental crops and members benefitted from his vast experience.   Both James and Cheryl will be attending from the office.

All members are welcome to join us at this free event for members.

If you would like to attend please contact Cheryl or James in the office to confirm your place.
