Medvedev appraised machines on the Kursk fields

At the height of the harvest, Russia’s Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev visited Kursk Oblast. The high-ranking guest was treated to the Field Day with a demonstration of engineering capabilities of modern agricultural equipment.

Nikolay Fyodorov, Minister of Agriculture, noted the efficiency of agricultural production in  Kursk Oblast, telling the Premier that in some aspects the Kursk farmers already compete with their colleagues in the Krasnodar Krai and Rostov Oblast.

Today in terms of grain production and productivity, the Kursk Oblast is the leader in the Central Federal Region. It has harvested more than 3 million tonnes of grain. Close to completion is the harvesting of cereal crops due to be followed by maize for grain processing.

AgroCentre introduced the Premier and other guests to a highly efficient engineering duet on the field. That was the Challenger MT 685D tractor linked with the Kverneland plough, a unique combination which showed something close to ploughing miracles.

“This couple demonstrates superior performance,” says Sergey Dorofeyev, equipment sales manager of the Kursk branch of AgroCentreLiski LLC. “At a tilling depth of 30 to 35 cm, it can plough 30 to 40 hectares per shift. The tractor’s average speed is 8 to 10 km per hour.”

Kursk farmers express strong approval of the endurance of the U.S. tractors and the irreproachable servicing of AgroCentre. A wide choice of farming equipment, superior maintenance facilities and highly skilled personnel enabled the company to join the top seven suppliers of farming equipment in the Kursk region and to duly contribute to overhaul of the farming industry.
