Amazonen-Werke looks forward to welcoming farmers, agricultural contractors and sales partners to Amatechnica 2016 on Thursday, 2nd June, 2016. This international field day will once again take place in the area surrounding the Amazone factory in D-49205 Hasbergen-Gaste.

In an action-packed programme, the main attraction is a big exhibition of equipment alongside practical demonstrations of machinery from both the agricultural and municipal technology sectors. Here, under the motto "GO for Innovation", the latest Amazone innovations will be at the heart of the Show, including five of which that will be introduced for the first time at Amatechnica 2016. Whilst this machinery exhibition opens 12 pm, the machinery drive-past followed by the practical field demonstrations runs at both 1 pm and 5 pm. And this year as a ‘first’ Amazone will, in addition, run an "Information Centre for Precision Farming" in the Active Centre. Here, from 12 pm onwards, visitors can be introduced to, and have explained in detail, all the Precision Farming options from Amazone and its various partner companies.

From 3.30 pm a seminar will be jointly held by off-duty Police Superintendent Heinz Haarlammert and Martin Kemper of Amazone. The lecture deals with the topic "agricultural machinery on the road – ensuring safe transport on German roads".

Guided tours of both the Gaste and Leeden factories, as well as additional events such as, for example, a visit to the Amazone museum, helicopter tours, archery, a vintage tractor show and a price draw round off the event. The event ends with a get-together with the Amazone team and live music in the marquee. For further information on Amatechnica 2016, then please go to:
