Minister visits exhibition stand

AMAZONE at SIMA in France


SIMA took place in Paris from 6 to 10 November 2022. Around 155,000 visitors caught up with the latest trends and technical innovations in the agricultural industry. AMAZONE showcased itself with a new, modern exhibition stand. Important AMAZONE innovations such as the Centaya 3000 Special pneumatic harrow-mounted seed drill and the high-output Precea precision air seeder combined with a rotary cultivator and FTender front tank in a 6 m working width were met with great interest from the visitors. Our new soil tillage implements, such as the Cobra trailed shallow cultivator, the new KE 02 rotary harrow generation and our Teres and Tyrok high-performance ploughs, were just as popular. The fertiliser and crop protection technology on show included our new BorderTS border spreading system and the large UX 7601 Super trailed sprayer.

Florent Guilleman (Managing Director of AMAZONE Auneau, France) and Bettina and Christian Dreyer (owners of AMAZONE) presented the revolutionary SmartSprayer technology to the French Minister of Agriculture, Marc Fesneau. This new Spot Spraying technology integrates state-of-the-art camera technology and AI image processing with crop establishment know-how to create a unique crop protection system. With field-specific threshold values and simultaneous full-width and spot application in a single pass, herbicide costs can be reduced by up to 70%.

This coveted award is presented in the agricultural machinery sector by an international jury consisting of trade journalists.
