Cooperation with strong partners
Autonomous fieldwork with AMAZONE
The dream of the agricultural sector: fieldwork with robots. The robot is called "AgBot" and is manufactured by the Dutch company AgXeed. The AMAZONE Group and Claas are strengthening their cooperation with the start-up company, AgXeed B.V. by taking a financial stake in the company.
The “AgBot” with its tracked crawler chassis is the ideal tractor for use in conjunction with AMAZONE soil tillage and seeding systems. In addition to soil tillage and seeding, the new 4-wheel Agbot can also be used with Schmotzer hoes. Furthermore, the universal FTender front hopper for seed and fertiliser and the FT-P front tank for plant protection agents and liquid fertiliser can be combined with various mounted AMAZONE machines, depending on the application. Various sensor systems constantly monitor and analyse the working process. The focus is on the optimum process and better working quality when considering an autonomous rig. The development has been ongoing for two years now and the deployment of the autonomous cultivation system is getting closer and closer.
The future at AMAZONE has begun!
