Claydon Drills are the most renowned direct strip till seeding system in Europe, giving sustainable high yield results year on year with huge environmental benefits. Our seed drills can be used direct into stubble or cultivated soils giving huge time and cost savings when used as a direct drill. Claydons simple yet highly effective two tine patented design creates the ideal growing environment for each seed with drainage and space for roots to grow – high yields can therefore be achieved from year 1.
We have over a decade of experience and have been using the the Claydon Strip Till System on our own farm for 13 seasons now. Call 01440 820 327 to arrange to see our farm.
Claydon are a farming family and all Claydon Drills and agricultural machinery are designed by farmers for farmers to improve yield, output and create other benefits. Our Strip Till System has been developed over many years to optimise high and stable yields. The system requires a scratch cultivation ideally from the Straw Harrow to chit weeds ready for spraying then simply we simply drill direct into the stubble with the Claydon Strip Till Drill and roll with the Claydon Rolls.
The Claydon Family have been farming their heavy clay soils near Newmarket in Suffolk, since the early 1900s. In 1980 Jeff Claydon invented the first yield monitoring device to be fitted internally to a combine harvester and since then the family diversified into agricultural engineering, priding themselves on producing top quality, hard wearing farm machinery that has been developed to satisfy a real need on their own working farm.
In 2002, due to the heavily suppressed wheat price and ever increasing input costs, the company began the development of a seed drill that would radically reduce establishment costs and work effectively in the wet UK and Northern European climate.
The Claydon Strip Till direct drilling system has been used on our and hundreds of farms throughout Europe including the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Netherlands, Denmark, Finland, Sweden, Austria, Switzerland, Czech Republic, Latvia, Italy, New Zealand and Chile. Drilling direct into stubble has huge time and cost saving benefits and our system has proven to increase and provide stable yields year on year.
