The AGROmashEXPO in Budapest opened its doors this year from 24-27 January 2024 over 36,000m² and was a complete success for the 300 exhibitors from 12 countries. The official opening ceremony on Wednesday immediately created a positive mood, as the Minister of Agriculture gave a speech confirming that around 7 billion euros in subsidies will be made available to farmers by 2027. He encouraged them to invest in new machinery and technology.

The ceremony was a great success for AMAZONE Kft. We also received several awards and certificates:

1. Special prize for domestic product development in the mechanisation category:

  • Tyrok 400 Onland semi-mounted reversible plough

Our colleagues from AMAZONE Kft. and Schmotzer represented us over an impressive area of 500 m². In previous years, our crop protection sprayers and fertiliser spreaders were often the most popular products at the trade show. This time, machinery from across all product sectors were met with a lot of interest overall. Products of particular note included our Precea precision seeder, the Cobra trailed shallow cultivator, Catros mounted compact disc harrow, Cirrus trailed cultivator drill, Tyrok semi-mounted reversible plough and Schmotzer hoes. 

The significant interest and the special price of the Tyrok 400 Onland meant that even the Minister of Agriculture himself came to the AMAZONE stand in person to find out more about our products .
