At the Field Day in the Orel oblast, AgroCentre presented over 20 units of agricultural machinery. The spotlight was on a new product from Vaderstad, the Tempo inter-row seeder.

The Field Day was arranged on the facilities of OrelAgroProm LLC (Ozerna village of Sverdlovsky district, Orel oblast). The event attracted the leading farming enterprises of the region. Greeting the guests, Yevgeny Ankudinov, head of the Orel division of AgroCentreLiski LLC, said: “Over the short period of its operation in Orel oblast, the company has won the trust and respect of many farms. We are steadily increasing our product range, offering farmers more and more new products, and providing high quality servicing for them”.

AgroCentre specialists spoke about the agricultural machines they are supplying this season. Special attention was given to Challenger, Kverneland, Vaderstad and JCB equipment.  The guests watched with keen interest how the machines operate in field conditions.

Pavel Velchinsky, regional manager of Vaderstad, is sure that the Tempo system has successfully passed the test drives in the Orel region.

“In early May, this machine was used to seed 200 hectares of maize”, he says. “It should be noted that at the high operating speed of 18-20 km/h this machine assures high seed introduction accuracy, 6 seeds per meter. Today it is obvious that the result surpassed all expectations. The sprouts are ideal. There are no omissions or double seeding!”

The farmers especially liked the Challenger 647 grain combine harvester assembled in Russia. This is a fine example of an optimum price to quality ratio. The core of the harvester is its economical 275 hp engine. The machine is unloaded on the move, just during operation. The hopper is fully emptied in 1 minute 43 seconds! Due to its high productivity and economical efficiency, many participants of the Field Day have opted expressly for this model.

Live operation was also arranged for the Challenger wheeled and tracked tractors. The guests were agreeably surprised to find a raffle of gift certificates for discounts on the purchase of these tractors in series six, seven and eight.
