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 were being harvested by the combine, as opposed to using the traditional method of a weighbridge. 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. Such was its success that in 1995 Claydon won an RASE Silver Medal for the Yield-o-Meter. In 2002 Jeff Claydon invented the first Claydon strip tillage drill - the Claydon V Drill. Since then, Claydon has become the European market leaders in strip till drilling with hundreds of direct drills and straw harrows working in over 20 countries across the world.

The first Claydon product was the Claydon Yield-o-Meter invented by 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 were being harvested by the combine, as opposed to using the traditional method of a weighbridge.  This was to become the first ever grain monitoring device to be fitted to a combine.

The Yield-o-Meter was subsequently fitted to many combines (mainly Class) in the UK and Europe.

In 1995 Claydon Yield-o-Meter Limited brought the Claydon Furrow Cracker to the UK market. This is a device that has been fitted to hundreds of ploughs throughout the UK which 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.
