Description

1000 acre arable farm growing potatoes, sugar beet and combinable crops looking for a tractor driver who is equally happy driving a modern tractor, i.e.Fendt 313/ JD 6145/JD6140, all with guidance, ridging potatoes with a Fendt toolcarrier, bagging potatoes in the summer (automatic bagging/stitching/stacking) or ditching/managing woodland with our 8t digger

We normally start harvesting potatoes mid May and lift a few most days until the end of September. We use a straw rake and subsoil a bit but other than levelling post root crop we do little cultivation. Sugar beet are established with a strip-till cultivator and direct drill. We are just getting into variable fertiliser/seed rates.

Ideally the candidate would have an interest in precision farming and there will be the opportunity to take on the spraying role within the next 2-3 yrs.
