Thought for the Week

"It is better to lead from behind and to put others in front, especially when you celebrate victory when nice things occur. You take the front line when there is danger. Then people will appreciate your leadership."

— Nelson Mandela

Farmers Weekly
A total of 698 tractors were registered in November 2013, an increase on the 558 sold in the same month last year, according to industry body the Agricultural Engineers Association.

New upgrades for Winfield R7 Tool
Farm Industry News
Winfield has announced significant upgrades this fall to its R7 Tool that will likely be gaining some attention. The web-based precision planning tool for the farm has been launched as an iPad app and has all the same functionality as the original tool. R7 has been available for Winfield dealers since fall of 2011, and it allows growers without extensive yield and soil sampling records to try out variable-rate seeding and fertility. Growers work with their dealers to develop those prescriptions by using historical satellite images to identify management zones.

Mastering the unique challenge of spec'ing a compact excavator
Equipment World
The first step in spec'ing compact excavators in the 2- to 3-metric-ton range is to define what they are and what they aren't. What they are: versatile machines that are as much tool carriers as excavators and often replace hand labor. What they aren't: full-size excavators. This means they shouldn't be spec'ed the same as their big brothers. Our sources were asked to provide what they thought were the top five specs for compact excavators and explain why these specs mattered most.

On-farm field trials and machines that go bing
Real Agriculture
The ability to measure, track and vary inputs and other agronomic data far exceeds most people's comfort level with data analysis. And if you're all, whoa, what the heck is she talking about? You've made my point. Any new(ish) equipment comes with the fantastic built-in capability to track what its doing, and as farmers add more gear, units and technology to the seeder set up, not to mention advances in sectional control and more, the possible amount of data produced each year is staggering.

CVT choice offers perfect tractor working speed
Farmers Weekly
When Fendt unveiled the first practical continuously variable transmission, it did more than just bring a new level of speed control and adjustment. It brought the engine and transmission together to perform as an integrated unit. Prior to this CVT development, it was entirely down to the operator to choose the combination of engine speed (bearing in mind the engine's power and torque characteristics) and gear ratio that best suited the job in hand.
