A husband and wife team from Co Armagh will launch their online equipment comparison service for farmers at the Balmoral Show.

Oliver and Karen McDonald of FarmCompare.com are participants on Ulster Bank's Entrepreneur Accelerator programme. Their website simplifies the process of buying farming equipment by showcasing offers from top local and national dealers this week.

As a farmer for many years in Middletown, Mr McDonald said he always talked to his wife about "a way to streamline the process" of buying equipment. He said support from Ulster Bank's programme allowed the pair to "take the plunge".

Gabi Burnside, entrepreneur acceleration manager with Ulster Bank, said the success of Farm Compare had been "testament to the couple's drive and determination".
