Farm Diversity editor Victoria Galligan speaks to Kubota UK’s business development manager for agriculture Rob Edwards about the changes in farming technology which are improving efficiency, and the need for more education for both farmers and consumers when it comes to protecting the environment…
Kubota is a company which hails from Japan, where the brand goes back 140 years. Not only does the firm produce farming machinery, it also manufactures a ground care range as well as industrial engines and construction machinery.
Its motto is ‘For Earth, For Life’ and Rob says this is reflected in the way the company develops both its products and its support for farmers.
A new magazine aimed at farmers and landowners with diversification plans is being launched later this month. Farm Diversity offers news and views from the industry on a range of agricultural topics, and also features the products and services which can help rural businesses make diversity a success.
The magazine will cover:
• renewable energy
• leisure & tourism
• food and drink
• arable & pastoral diversification
• recruitment & training
