Field Day, London-style
A misty Albion sort of weather in the form of thick fog and rain rather inhospitably greeted the guests of the Field Day held in Tyumen. As for the local farmers, they’re not afraid of such weather.
As many as around 130 farmers, some even from the neighbouring oblasts, came to see the cutting edge farm equipment on display.
AgroCentreZakharovo showed off 10 units of farm equipment and its area was crowded as usual. The farmers were somewhat annoyed that for safety reasons the exhibition organisers didn’t let them test drive the Challenger caterpillar tractor.
Tyumen farmers are generally very fond of tractors from AGCO.
“According to the rating, in 2013 the share of AGCO tractors in the Tyumen region’s market made up 75%,” said Dmitry Ivanov, sales director of the AgroCentreZakharovo LLC. “This is amazing! The Tyumen farmers prefer these machines for their endurance and wide range of capabilities.”
In addition to the Challenger 865C (510 hp) caterpillar tractor capable of operating even on water-logged fields, AgroCentreZakharovo presented its wheeled counterpart, Challenger 595B (215 hp).
The farmers also registered interest in the Massey Ferguson 8690 (370 hp) tractor, a reliable machine for wide-grip implements and economical operation. The guests pointed out that this tractor not only works well, but also cares for the business side.
In the Massey Ferguson product range, the Activa grain combine harvester was presented. It fully justifies its name. Convenient and simple in operation, this model offers high output and an outstanding bin discharge rate, 85 l/s. The Massey Ferguson Activa 7347S combine harvester’s reapers are expressly developed for optimising the harvesting of a variety of grain crops.
