Claydon announce prize draw to mark its 40th anniversary
11th June 2021
It was back in July 1981 that Jeffrey Claydon set up Claydon Yield-o-Meter Ltd. To celebrate 40 years in the industry Claydon have announced they are to hold a prize draw for a years worth of Omnia Precision farming systems.
Claydon Yield-o-Meter Limited was set up to manufacture and market a yield monitoring device he had invented the previous year. The Yield-o-Meter was the first ever grain monitoring device to be fitted to a combine harvester. The Yield-o-Meter accurately measured how many tonnes were being harvested by the combine, as opposed to the traditional weighbridge method. The yield monitoring device allowed farmers to analyse data they previously had to guess.
The company is marking four decades in the agricultural machinery manufacturing sector by holding a 40th Anniversary Prize Draw, with the winner receiving a year’s free access to Omnia Precision, a precision farming system provided by leading agricultural and horticultural input advice and supply company Hutchinsons.
Omnia is a multi-layer tool which analyses information from a variety of sources to enable informed decision making for the full range of variable applications. It enables you and your agronomists to work at sub-field level to create variable rate nutrient, seed, or crop protection plans. Its advanced algorithms calculate the optimum solution for an individual area within the field, irrespective of the number of map layers you wish to include or the different zone shapes.
