The Federal Minister of Food and Agriculture, Julia Klöckner, visited AMAZONEN-WERKE in Hasbergen to find out about new opportunities for digitisation in agriculture and more environmentally-friendly production. Amazone Managing Directors Christian and Dr. Justus Dreyer told her that agriculture was constantly facing new challenges. Pesticides must be used in a more targeted manner and fertiliser used more efficiently. Climate change should also be taken into account in the processes and lower CO2 emissions should be aimed for. "The solution is not just digitisation, but it is an important building block," said the Dreyers. And it is progressing all the time.

"We are currently at an advanced stage in the development of "smart farming", i.e. the automation of equipment," the managing directors reported. This view was shared by the Minister, who was particularly fascinated by the intelligent AmaSpot sensor nozzle system.

In addition to the two Amazone Managing Directors, Christian and Dr. Justus Dreyer, Prof. Dr. Arno Ruckelshausen from the University of Osnabrück and Dr. Mathias Middelberg, Member of the German Bundestag, took part in the discussions with Minister Klöckner.

At the end of the visit, Ms Klöckner summed up on a positive note: "It is exciting to see the new aspects and efficiency improvements which are already being worked on in the agricultural machinery industry."

WindControl - Calm conditions at the touch of a button

The effect of the wind on the spread pattern can be permanently monitored and automatically compensated for by WindControl. A high-frequency wind sensor mounted on the machine records both the wind speed and the wind direction and transmits this information to the job computer.
