AgroCentre is the first AGCO Corporation dealer to have arranged a trip for Russian farmers to the Massey Ferguson plant in Brazil. The farmers watched how the tractor is manufactured, visited a farm and saw one of the world’s wonders, the unforgettable Iguazu Falls.

Massey Ferguson is one of the oldest global agricultural brands from the family of the American corporation AGCO. Today its equipment is sold in 140 countries through a dealer network of over 5,000 companies including AgroCentre. Let's look back in history to understand why people love Massey Ferguson machines and who stood behind its creation.

Observations of recent years’ weather show that the spring comes in much of Russia very rapidly. This means the seeding job must be done as soon as possible, in two weeks at the most. AgroCentre offers good aids in the form of Challenger grain drills and cultivating seeders.

Last autumn, AgroCentreLiski arranged a competition on fields of the Russkoye Pole LLC, Voronezh oblast, between the Fendt 933 (320 hp) tractor and its wheeled counterpart of a different model. Aleksandr Lynov, the servicing engineer of the enterprise, told us about the competition results and why the Fendt tractor became the headliner on the farm.

AgroCentreLiski completes construction of an Agricultural Equipment Sales and Servicing Centre in Khlevnoye village, Lipetsk oblast. This will become one of the largest servicing centres in Russia.

It is possible to save on buying certain spares for farming equipment. One should remember, however, that using components from suppliers other than the original manufacturer can seriously damage both the equipment and the farmer’s pocket.  That is why experts from AgroCentre strongly advise farmers not to take risks buying substitute components lest they learn the hard way why the miser pays double. 

The Avangard-Agro agriholding has acquired a batch of twenty-five Challenger caterpillar tractors from AgroCentreLiski. This is the world’s biggest deal for the supply of caterpillar machines.

Over 50 years ago, Challenger presented its first agricultural sprinkler and, since then, it keeps improving this type of equipment. This season, AgroCentre is offering farmers a completely new AGCO product, the Challenger RoGator 700 sprinkler.

The Russian farmers had a stroll around Buckingham Palace, watched Big Ben and visited the largest JCB loaders’ manufacturing plant. This opportunity was provided to them by AgroCentre Company, organisers of the trip to England. 

According to the estimates of experts, over recent years the Russian caterpillar tractor market has grown significantly. Compared to last year, AGCO alone increased its sales of Challenger caterpillar tractors by 25%. The experts of AgroCentre point out that many farmers have reconsidered their attitude to caterpillar tractors. In many parameters, they are obviously superior to their wheeled counterparts.

The current year brought records to the Kursk farmers. They became the Central Federal Region’s champions in grain harvesting. The grain total of the oblast came to 4 million tonnes, for which it was awarded the Grand Prix of the Golden Autumn 2013 All-Russian Agro-Industrial Exhibition. At the Farmers’ Day, the agrarians received congratulations they well deserved.
