In previous focuses on the Tillage Captial Investment Scheme (TCIS), we’ve often featured items which we felt should be eligible for funding. Previous items included weighbridges, low ground pressure tyres and regulation kits, tracks, nitrogen sensors, chaser bins and soil sampling equipment to name a few.

This year is no different, and we feel that closed transfer system (CTS) technology to protect operators from pesticides when filling the sprayer is a worthy item for inclusion for future schemes. One such system was debuted last year and is a result of a combined effort by ADAMA, BASF, Corteva Agriscience, Nufarm and Syngenta.
