During this session we'll be looking at a machinery review of Bill’s farm. Man and machine – work rates, efficiencies and costings per hour, per hectare. How is the Monitor Farm performing and how do your figures compare?

About the farm

Bill Webb farms with his son Joe at Manor Farm in Hale Village, on the Mersey estuary. They grow potatoes, spring barley, winter barley, oilseed rape and wheat at the 417 ha farm, on a range of light to medium-heavy land. All but the barley is sold to customers within 20 miles of the farm – localism and strong links with the supply chain are key philosophies of the business. Ryegrass is the primary weed challenge at Manor Farm. Bill wants to keep learning and improving his farm, as well as bringing more locally-relevant research and knowledge to the North West.
