Improving productivity with Gatekeeper

Precision farming is very much the focus at Brooker Farms where Andrew Cragg manages the 600Ha holding which lies within the Romney Marsh area. The land is predominantly silty clay loam and falls within an NVZ which offers a number of challenges and opportunities for precision farming.

“Gatekeeper allows me to plan my own applications with ease. The correlation between different maps is the starting point. Having the tools in Gatekeeper to understand this interaction is a huge benefit to me.”

Saving time and preventing potential errors at Swinbrook farms

In 2008, Tony Hogsbjerg took up the position of farm manager at Swinbrook and Wilcote Farms in Oxfordshire. He manages 1000ha of arable land with 400ha of grassland and woodland. The farm produces wheat, barley, oilseed rape, spring linseed and stubble turnips.

“The software is easy to operate and shows you clearly what has been done and needs doing. Plus the costings are readily available so I can keep track of my spend in line with my budget. Being able to view up to date costs, applications and other information makes it a very flexible piece of software. All the information I need is in one place, together, along with cross compliance and NVZ checks.”
