A warm welcome awaits at Agritechnica 2019

Agritechnica 2019

Amongst over 60 pieces of machinery or systems on the Stand, Agritechnica 2019 next week sees the launch of 30 innovations including the 3 Silver medal, award-winning innovations: AmaSense Weather, AmaSelect Row and the EasyMix App for blended fertilisers.

Take, for example, the new add-ons to the AmaSelect individual nozzle control system: AmaSelect Row gives users the opportunity at the push of a button to choose between blanket spraying across the full width to selecting nozzle bodies equipped with a spot fan jet that targets individual rows. The row spacing can be either 50 cm or 75 cm meaning the system is ideal for both sugar beet, maize and potatoes. Cost savings in active chemical ingredients amounts to between 40 - 65% in potatoes. The flexibility of the system comes from AmaSelect having the ability to spray at either 25 cm or 50 cm nozzle spacing.

AmaSelect Spot is a joint project with DroneWorkers who can analyse photographs taken from a Drone equipped with a specialist RGB camera and produce geo-referenced, weed image maps that enable spot spraying of site-specific part-areas in fields. A safety zone is built into the map to prevent any resistance build-up caused by under-dosing of the area. In heavily infested areas it is always possible to switch back to a conventional blanket application.

The introduction of Bluetooth enabled job computes will allow in the future data transfer from Smartphones to the implement. This will enable, for example, fertiliser setting recommendations from EasyCheck to be directly loaded into the spreader or settings for drill calibrations to up uploaded into a seeding system.

On the machinery front, the Catros range of compact disc harrows has been extended with the introduction of the new CatrosXL in widths from 3 m up to 8 m. Here the 610 mm diameter discs offer the chance to handle more organic matter as well as potentially deeper working depths. Upfront the CatrosXL can be equipped with either a straw harrow or the new knife roller to pre-work crop residues ahead of the cultivator. If we are looking to work deeper still then the new-generation Certos 02 with a new 660 mm diameter twin row disc layout is the tool to use.

In seeding we have the new mechanically-driven Cataya conventional seed drill and the new Avant 02 front tank drill combi. The Avant features the FTender front tank which can be used, not only for seed, but also for fertiliser in combination with such as a rear-mounted Centaya air drill combi. The new Precea precision air seeder also makes its debut at this year's show in 3 m rigid, either mounted of power harrow mounted and in 4.5 m telescopic. For broader farming areas, the new FDC 6000 fertiliser delivery cart can carry 6,000 litres of liquid fertiliser targeted to the row for use in front of the EDX maize drill or Primera and Condor direct drills

For the spreaders, the emphasis is on smart technology with a clever new HeadlandControl system that extends the in-field spread pattern to give more room to switch on and off when going in and out of the headland plus a new SctionControl software that switches from the outside in and vice versa to avoid any under- and over-spreading on the ins and outs. A new App for the iPad gives a low-cost twin terminal solution for displaying section control alongside the AmaTron 4 screen. New EasySet 2 and AmaPad 2 terminals are also on show for the first time.

See the new Pantera 4504 at Cereals

Cereals will see the public unveiling of the new Pantera 4504 self-propelled sprayer which is designed to set new standards in precision plant protection application and ease of operation This new generation, the Pantera 4504, focuses on increased work rates and reducing the work load on the driver. The new in-house operating system, modified spray agent liquid circuit and changes to the operator station offer significant added value.

AMAZONE's virtual presence at Cereals-LIVE 2020

With Cereals 2020 unable to be held due to the Covid-19 crisis, then AMAZONE is making its presence felt in the virtual world. With new drills, cultivators and updates to spreaders and sprayers planned to be shown at Chrishall Grange in June, then details of these we will try and bring you on-line instead.

IOG Saltex sees the launch of the PH1500 SmartLine

This year's Show sees the launch of the all-new Profihopper PH1500. Based loosely on the concept of its kid sister, the PH1250 SmartLine the PH1500 is bigger and bolder with a new engine management and drive concept designed to keep fuel economy and noise levels to an absolute minimum.

Hektor to makes its debut at Cereals 2018

Amazone will also now use Cereals 2018 to showcase a new range of semi-mounted reversible ploughs. Designated the Hektor, the new plough range is available in 6 to 8 furrows and for tractors up to 350 HP/257 KW. The option of a 6+1 or 7+1 beam can also be specified for added flexibility.

Cereals 2018 returns to Chrishall Grange, Duxford

With having both the Sprays & Sprayers ring and static stands, it makes Cereals 2018 the ideal venue to show off some Amazing new kit that will be both working and on Stand S705, which is alongside the main ring. This new kit includes new drills, drill combis, trailed and mounted sprayers, spreaders, ploughs ..... the list goes on and on, plus an exciting new product which is still under wraps and in-waiting for the big day!

LAMMA 2018 hosts the launch of the UF2002

After its introduction to the farming world at Agritechnica last month, the new UF 2002 mounted sprayer will debut to British farmers on January 17th - 18th at LAMMA 2018 in Peterborough.
The trend towards increasing tank sizes for minimising refill times, and wider booms to improve work rates, has led to a complete new design for the model.

The new Avant grain and fert front tank to make its debut at AgriScot

6000-2C Grain & Fert front tank-based, power harrow seed drill combination has proved to be a huge success. The new four-way split tank is carried, out-front, on the well-known steering tyre packer system off the FPS 204 and so provides complete consolidation over the full width of the tractor thus increasing output and reducing ground pressure.

This year's IOG Saltex sees the release of the new E+S Hydro salt spreaders

3C Demo Tour 2017

It doesn’t matter how impressive that new bit of kit looks when it’s polished and sitting on a Cereals or LAMMA Show stand, there is nothing quite like seeing it in the flesh out in the field where it belongs, doing what it does best - working . So 8 tractors – and 8 machines - are out on tour around the country this summer doing just that and they are coming to a field near you on:

Cataya comes to Cereals 2017

The trend latterly when it comes to drill combinations has been very much in favour of pneumatic metering systems. Larger hopper capacities and the introduction of electrically-driven metering systems with push-button calibration and automatic GPS-based headland shut-off systems have been the main driving factors. However, the simplicity of a conventional seed drill with its lack of fan and improved rearward visibility still holds some appeal to many end-users. The new 3...
