In order to enable you to achieve optimum yields AMAZONE offers the comprehensive advise for the different systems on the basis of longstanding soil tillage and sowing tests that AMAZONE carries out in co-operation with science at different sites.
The choice of trial fields represents the different farming possibilities and structures, keeping in mind the different climatic conditions and crop rotations. We will keep you informed of the most important results on the following pages.
All up dated test results (state autumn 2012) are available in the pdf files at the relevant test sites.
The site Leipzig is representative for arable farming on large field structures. The climate is continentally influenced and characterized by reduced rain and pre-summer drought. Water and climate are the yield limiting factors.
The site Huntlosen in Lower Saxony is representative for arable farming in processing regions on light soils with smaller field structures.
The trial site at Tickhill (South Yorkshire) is situated on a limestone ridge. The crop rotation with winter cereals and winter oilseed rape is typical of the region. High yields are usual and are based on an annual rain fall of 750 mm.
The Hellvoetsluis trial site is characterised by extreme soil and climatic conditions.
The site Westerkappeln near Osnabrück is representative for arable farming in processing regions on lighte soils with smaller field structures.
The region with predominantly sandy sites is characterised by mixed farming with animal husbandry which is reflected in the field sizes and the crop rotation.
The soil conditions of the Southern German site are characterised by a shallow sandy loam of medium soil quality above gravel.
The trial site lies approx. approx. 250 km east of Moscow. The site belongs to the none black soil sites where animal production prevails. Here, the soils tend to be heavier and difficult to operate. The average rainfall is approx. 650 mm/year.
Auneau is located near Chartres at the south-west side of the Paris basin, one of the most important arable farming regions in France.
