New dealer H Curtis and Sons is celebrating receiving its first orders – and hopes to set up a lot more with a busy farm demonstration programme planned to start as soon as possible this autumn.

The company, which was appointed to the UK dealership network this spring, is benefitting from holding a very successful working day on land near its headquarters at Pensford, near Bristol, and some good follow-up work on leads gained at that event:

“We have a lot of business on the go and have sold our first DTX cultivator, and are looking to tie up deals on a 3m X-Press and ST Bar and a UniPress soon.

“As soon as harvest gets going and we have some stubbles to work on we will be very busy with demonstrations. Harvest in this region will be a little delayed, but we expect the first barleys and oilseed rape crops to be coming off in a few weeks’ time.

“Many of the crops that looked so poor over the winter have demonstrated their ability to recover and may end up performing much better than might have been hoped earlier in the year, and crops drilled this spring are looking very well”.
