EPISODE 53
WHOSE GOT THE ENERGY?

WITH fossil fuels on the way out (in time), what energy source will manufacturers of tractors, farm machinery, lawnmowers and a host machinery currently powered by petrol or diesel engines have to rely on in the future?

This episode contains an eureka moment prompted by a news story about the dangers of exploding grass clippings, a method of converting cows poo into methane to be used as a cost-saving energy source, and a view on whether hydrogen will become the 'silver bullet' as a future energy source?

Battery power is used increasingly on smaller equipment, but what about its use in big farming - and are we storing up problems with the disposal or recycling of spent batteries?

An overview of the current thinking:  Episode is 23 minutes

Chris has worked in the agricultural and turfcare machinery industry since the 1960s,  both for manufacturer and dealer. He subsequently launched industry trade magazines which he built up over 30 years before selling them.

 

He also edited a number of magazines for industry bodies before 'retiring' in 2019.

 

When lockdown came in the Spring of 2020 he decided to teach himself podcast production and audio editing. The result is Inside Agri-Turf.  Using his extensive 60 years industry experience and industry know-how, he launched the first episodes in July 2020 and has quickly grown a substantial number of listeners worldwide.
