Bulk grain cleaning and colour separation services
Our mobile bulk-cleaning machines are based at Stafford and provide a very economical on-farm cleaning solution to most contaminant problems in combinable crops, thereby increasing the marketability of the crop. In some cases e.g. poor quality malting barley’s we can improve the quality from feed grade, back to malting specification and the customer retains valuable screenings, which in most cases can be fed or sold. This is a very attractive option for the majority of growers.
We offer three different cleaning systems:-
- Bulk Rotary Cleaning
Cleans and grades all combinable crops whilst leaving valuable screenings on farm. Speciality is achieving screening and retention specifications for malting barleys and large scale cereal cleaning operations (throughput for wheat, approx. 20-25 tonnes per hour)
- Bulk Colour Separation
Screening and precise digital colour separation of contaminants. Primarily used for ergot removal from cereals and cleaning discoloured peas and beans.
(throughput for wheat, approx. 12 tonnes per hour)
- Modified Gravity Cleaning
For speciality cleaning, e.g. organics, linseed for oil, ahiflower seed, millet etc. (throughput 2–5 tonnes per hour, for wheat, approx. 8-10 tonnes per hour)
All our cleaning machines are hired by the hour and are supplied with experienced and fully qualified operators.
Grain sample from 120tn Barley, Oxfordshire January 2017. Colour sorted on-site to remove Ergot, small grains and chaff – cost equal to £12 per tonne.
Seed treatments are an affordable and effective way to optimise seed germination, plant establishment, early growth and yield potential. Our range of available seed treatments include:
- Redigo Pro
Controls the seed and soil borne diseases of wheat and spring barley – it’s the latest formulation from Bayer CropScience to improve, handling, reduce dust and further improve loose smut and Fusarium control. It is based on a combination of prothioconazole and tebuconazole. It sets the standard for disease control.
- Raxil Star (Winter Barley Only)
Raxil Star is a specialist winter barley fungicide which improves crop performance and quality with activity against difficult to control diseases.
- Rancona iMix
Combined with Vibrance Duo on barley to boost activity against loose smut. It is a combination of ipconazole and imazalil.
- Vibrance Duo
Contains fludioxonil and sedaxane for control of a range of seed borne diseases in winter wheat, winter triticale, winter rye, spring oats and winter and spring barley.
Provides a zone of protection around the seed which kills or repels wheat bulb fly or wireworm in autumn/winter sown wheat and barley.
Currently the only specialist take-all seed treatment and is effective in all take all situations.
- Take Off ST
Two complimentary bio-stimulants to increase root growth and photosynthetic efficiency. Contains stabilised phosphite and pyro-glutamic acid. Increases winter hardiness and drought tolerance also improving root mass and emergence.
Highest load Manganese (450g/t) available and contains a collating agent that prevents lock-up by the soil. Applies 20% more Mn than New Manganese Solution and uptake is via the seed coat and roots to get more Mn into the plant.
High load Zinc (450g/t)formulation. Responses even in non-deficient soils and consistent yield responses across a range of crops including wheat, barley and oats.
High load Copper (250g/t) formualtion that is perfect for copper deficient soils, high organic matter soils and phosphate-rich soils.
OSR Seed Treatments
Seed treatments are also applied to oilseed rape to control diseases and stimulate early vigorous growth. They include:
- Integral Pro
It is a biological control agent that colonizes the roots and releases exudates that control seed-borne Phoma, Alternaria and Rhizoctonia. It also stimulates root and shoot growth and controls low to moderate levels of Cabbage Stem Flea Beetle.
- Take Off OSR
A phosphite-based bio-stimulant that promotes early root development and boosts crop establishment and early crop vigour.
