Farming on the Plain - continued!

25.04.22 - Rape Field, Salisbury Plain
I managed to photograph this beautiful field of rape today.  This is the best field I have seen on my travels.
Titan™ Series Floaters - 26.08.21
These photographs were taken this evening at Durrington Down Farm near Fargo, on Salisbury Plain.
The contractor was busy on the farm, fertilizing the land ready for next years harvest.  It is thought that this machine from America, is the only one of its type in the country.
Case IH Titan™ Series floater chassis and applicators are built to handle the tough demands of changing terrain while accurately applying fertilizer and chemicals, season after season.  A titan floater can be customised with your choice of 3- or 4-wheel configurations, single or multiple bins, tanks, boom widths and variable-rate application technologies to fit your needs.
Titan floaters feature Power Management, which allows operators to match speed to conditions for optimum performance.
Titan floaters include the Surveyor cab, which delivers high-level comfort for more hours on the job.  HID lighting in the hood and four lights to the rear of the cab roof allow you to finish the job after nightfall.
fibrophos PK fertiliser – Phosphate and Potash fertiliser
Grassland, cereals, oilseed rape, peas, beans and potatoes have all been shown to thrive on fibrophos PK Phosphate and Potash fertiliser fed soils.  Extensive trials show fibrophos to be a most effective source of P and K across the whole farm.
Raises Phosphate and Potash indices
fibrophos PK Fertiliser raises the soil Phosphate and Potash indices on the poorest land and packs the soil again with all the other nutrients that are needed by the growing crop, except Nitrogen. The immediate effect is increased yields across a much more productive, well-fed acreage.
