MINIMUM INPUTS + MAXIMUM YIELDS = SUSTAINABLE AGRICULTURE
The Claydon family have been farming the heavy clay lands of Suffolk since the early 1900’s, Jeffery and Frank Claydon are the third generation to be farming the land now under the E.T. Claydon and Sons family partnership name, the brothers have been farming since 1970 and still farm the land in the present day.
This is what makes Claydon Products unique; the fact that they are developed on a working farm by farmers for farmers and are truly tried and tested in real farming conditions in a real farm environment before they are brought to market.
The first Claydon product was the Claydon Yield-o-Meter invented by Mr. Jeffery Claydon in 1980, subsequently forming Claydon Yield-o-Meter Limited.Jeff’s vision was to create a grain monitoring device that could be fitted to almost any combine and would give accurate readings of how tonnes where being harvested by the combine, as opposed to using the traditional method of a weigh bridge, this was to become the first ever grain monitoring device to be fitted to a combine.
This enabled the farmer to analyse data that they had previously had to guess helping them to determine high yielding crops and varieties much more easily than ever before, and giving the farmer an accurate reading of how much grain he had harvested that minute, hour, day month or year.
The Yield-o-Meter has been fitted to many combines (mainly Class combines) through the UK and Europe and 1995 Claydon Yield-o-meter won an RASE Silver Medal for the Yield-o-MeterIn 1995 Claydon Yield-o-Meter Limited brought the Claydon Furrow Cracker to the UK market. A device that has been fitted to hundreds of ploughs throughout the UK that slices through the freshly turned clods at up to 6 inches deep in 2 inch rows allowing the weather into the soil to decompose the clod naturally.In 2002 Jeff Claydon invented the first Claydon Strip Tillage drill; The Claydon V Drill.
