Off-season brings the tide of change

Siberian Agrarian Week, an international agricultural trade show, was held in Novosibirsk from 27 to 29 November. More than 270 companies from 35 regions of Russia and eight countries of the world took part in the biggest farming event beyond the Urals and demonstrated their cutting-edge technologies and brand-new products.

AgroCentreZakharovo was no exception. Following the tradition, the company participated in Siberian Agrarian Week and showcased its best machines, including the Massey Ferguson 7718 tractor.

The model is equipped with the Dyna 6 robotic transmission and a six-cylinder AGCO Power engine having a capacity of 165-175 hp. Innovative solutions ensuring comfortable and efficient performance of challenging tasks are what gives Massey Ferguson tractors an edge over their competitors.

‘In Kemerovo oblast, the demand for Massey Ferguson tractors is particularly high’, points out Anton Bliznyuk, Head of Novosibirsk branch, AgroCentreZakharovo. ‘This year, local farmers have purchased six units of this make.’

AgroCentre also presented the Horsch Tiger 4MT cultivator, an expert in processing maize stubble. The machine is good at loosening the soil to a depth of 35 cm due to the heavy two-row DiscSystem. The four-bar frame design with an 85-cm frame height provides excellent block-free passage of the cultivator.

‘In 2017, we made our first purchase from AgroCentreZakharovo’, says Vladislav Beresnev, Manager of Tomskiy Fermer enterprise. ‘Currently, we have a Massey Ferguson 7624 tractor, a Kverneland 3632 FT mower conditioner and three Kverneland balers, and all the machines have proved to be highly effective. We are actively developing, so, in the future, we expect to further improve our technologies with AgroCentreZakharovo.’

At the trade show, hundreds of agricultural producers examined AgroCentre’s exhibits. While some farmers were only taking a closer look at Massey Ferguson and Horsch machines, others were ready to sign a contract right away.
