Amazone are the harvest-to-harvest specialists in seeding, soil tillage, fertilisation and crop protection. Cereals will see new trailed and mounted drills, trailed disc and tine cultivators, mounted and trailed sprayers - including the exceptional ContourControl boom guidance system in action in the Sprays and Sprayers ring - being exhibited for the first time.
Amazone will also now use Cereals 2018 to showcase a new range of semi-mounted reversible ploughs. Designated the Hektor, the new plough range is available in 6 to 8 furrows and for tractors up to 350 HP/257 KW. The option of a 6+1 or 7+1 beam can also be specified for added flexibility.
Amazone, at this year’s Cereals Event, will take the opportunity to introduce AmaTron 4, an innovative and completely new, in-house developed tablet style ISOBUS terminal.
The 12 m & 15 m wide Citan grain and fertiliser solo drills now offer ISOBUS controlled electrically-driven metering systems and automatic half-side shut-off via GPS-Switch.
The Centaya brings a new level of sophistication to the world of drill combinations. Available in a 3m working width, at the heart of the new Centaya is the plastic seed hopper which has been created to reduce the lifting power requirement of the complete combination. The distribution head has now been repositioned above the coulters meaning that centre of gravity of the 1,600 or 2,000 litre hopper has been brought substantially further forward.
With the pressure on sustainable usage, applying agrochemicals more accurately has never been so important. The new UX ticks all the boxes for both chemical induction and boom and nozzle control
When it comes to cultivation, it is flexibility that is needed so, whatever the application, the optimum depth of work and mixing effect can be achieved. Working stubbles shallow to promote an early chit is still a strong method of combating grass weed issues but there are times when, either due to poorer soil structures, or where we are looking to incorporate copious amounts of organic matter then deeper working with a tine is also necessary.
The new Ceus disc and tine combination cultivators, available in 4, 5, 6 and 7 m working widths, ideally combine both systems for the best of both worlds.
