Montag, 16. November 2009

More than 350,000 specialised visitors visited the Agritechnica trade show in Hanover from 8th to 14th November, 2009 with the DLG reporting a new record level of visitors. Again the 2,400 m² Amazone stand in the centre of the Hall 14 was outstandingly attended and the Amazone team would like to thank all its customers, both existing and potential and its sales partners for visiting the stand.

Under the banner of the "3C-Cost Cutting Concept“ Amazone has placed innovation and efficiency as the focus of the actual machinery programme and demonstrated the ways in how to achieve "more output with less input" by utilising that technology. The large number of professional conversations with farmers, contractors and machinery ring representatives underlined the great interest in their modern, efficient agricultural technology.

The trend to professional farming still continues unabated with well equipped, high output machinery being requested that is increasingly required to be provided with additional electronic functions. Examples of this are the hydraulically driven, weighing spreaders or fully electronic controlled crop protection equipment fitted with Distance-Control for boom guidance. Also, the fully automatic GPS-Switch part width section control for fertiliser spreaders and crop protection sprayers was of particular interest. The new CCI Isobus terminal, awarded a gold medal at the show, was very positively received by farmers and contractors alike and new machines for improved output, such as, for example, the EDX precision seeder or the new Cayena tine coulter seed drill were at the focus of interest.

The verdict of Agritechnica 2009: again it was obvious that Amazone, as a specialist in the area of intelligent crop production, is perfectly positioned in its field of competence to look after agricultural professionals in their needs for fertilisation, crop protection, soil tillage and sowing and as well in municipal technology.
