Welcome Despite 2016

Welcome Despite 2016 proving itself a challenging year for UK agriculture, our outlook remains positive. Extreme weather, poor commodity prices and the uncertainty of our EU membership, are all presenting their own challenges, but as is often the case, challenges produce opportunities. Now is the time for us all to look at our businesses to increase efficiencies and explore new markets. We understand that well maintained, reliable machinery plays a key role in running an efficient operation and making sure that your forage machinery is in the best possible condition can make all the difference between an excellent or poor harvest. Ensuring your machines are well serviced with worn parts replaced with genuine replacement parts is essential. Inevitably there becomes a point where maintaining a piece of equipment is no longer economically viable and you need to look at replacing it. Purchasing a new machine can often seem like the safe option with full manufacturer’s warranty and attractive finance, often with 0% interest; however all of this can come at a price… Have you considered buying a preowned machine? With more and more customers looking for quality used equipment we have recently launched our Krone Forage Solutions website, which offers a wide range of used machines, with all our Krone machines stamped with our seal of approval meaning you can benefit from attractive retail finance and limited Krone warranty at an affordable price. On the back page of this edition you can find out more about Krone Forage Solutions and how you can Marcus Oliver Managing Director purchase a machine. You can also read how Krone machines have helped some of our customers enhance their businesses and in particular how one customer in Northamptonshire has diversified into Bio Energy. Along with a roundup of Krone news and product updates with a particular focus on our mowers. With the season underway and the clamps starting to fill up now is the time to make sure you’re well stocked with all the Krone genuine wearing parts you’ll need to keep you running throughout the season. From all at Krone we wish you a successful harvest.
