At the SIMA 2017 agricultural machinery exhibition, Amazone’s new conventional Cataya seed drill combination was awarded ‘Machine of the Year’. The title ‘Machine of the Year’ is a specific distinction for innovation awarded by a jury of specialist agricultural machinery journalists from across Europe. This year’s award has been organised by the French journal “Terre-Net” in cooperation with the German agricultural publisher (Deutscher Landwirtschaftsverlag DLV).

Cataya is a very efficient mechanical seed drill combination for professional arable farms. It consists of the Cataya 3000 Super pack top seed drill which can be combined, from choice, with the new KE 3001 Rotary harrow or the nes KG or KX 3001 rotary cultivators. The most significant innovations for the Cataya include the Precis metering system, adjustment via the SmartCenter, an electric metering drive plus ISOBUS control of the machine. In addition, the Cataya features, with regard to normal conventional seed drill combinations, a very large hopper capacity.
