101 solutions to farming machinery problems

101 agricultural machines were presented at the Tyumen-based Traktorgrad section of the Agricultural Machinery and Equipment 2012 exhibition that displayed various technological solutions for farming enterprises. Thirty of them were from the AgroCentre firm.

AgroCentre presented the Challenger caterpillar tractors for the first time in the oblast. Making a few passes on the 765C caterpillar model, Vladimir Cheimetov, director of the department of agriculture, said he had never driven anything better. He also pointed out the excellent controllability of the machine.

AgroCentre presented seeding and soil treating systems from Vaderstad, disc harrows and self-propelled mowers from Challenger, fodder making machines and ploughs from Kverneland, soil treating units from Einbock, JCB loaders, Gustrower fertiliser distributors and a wide range of Challenger tractors.

“The exhibition will help the farmers choose the right things for the upcoming agricultural season and inspire them to use precision farming systems”, noted Vladimir Cheimetov as he watched the AgroCentre exposition. “This will help Tyumen farmers to unfailingly attain excellent results in the future”.

AgroCentre offered a solution in this area, too. This is the NivaControl GPS system. Its function is satellite-aided monitoring, performance control and evaluation, keeping field work history records, accounting and many other jobs. The exhibition guests saw NivaControl in action. The farmers liked its multi-role capability and low price compared to similar systems. AgroCentre's proposal for the famers to fit by the Challenger tractors with this appliance by default also appealed to them. No other regional dealer offers anything like it.

“We have made our exposition informative and useful for the guests of the exhibition,” said Aleksey Yurtayev, chief of the Tyumen division of AgroCentreZakharovo LLC. “We have presented different technological decisions based on the demands of our farming enterprises”.

The region's department of agriculture expressed strong approval of the valuable contribution of AgroCentre. The company won second place among the participants and was awarded a Certificate of Appreciation, second class.
