Glorious summer weather shone on the machines from C&O Tractors demonstration fleet; New Holland CX8080 combine harvester, with 30ft vari-feed header, New Holland T7.270 with Kuhn Fertilizer Spinner and Merlo 42.7 CS.

On show were variety plots of grass, cereals, pulses and OSR as well as forage and grass demonstration plots, greening crops and game cover crops. The demonstration field was sponsored by Syngenta UK who are also trialling nitrogen fertiliser timings and various fungicide programmes on hybrid barley.
