AEON DELTA FORCE 5200
The brand new HARDI AEON CENTURAline sprayer combines advanced technology with lean agriculture principles – to have more while doing less.
AgriMaster S® Plus liquid fertiliser storage tank
AgriMaster S® Plus is the first multifunctional tank on the Polish market designed for the storage of both liquid fertiliser and water, e.g. outside the fertiliser season. Available in the capacity of 22,000 l, it enables full tank loads of 25 tonnes of liquid fertiliser, leaving a space of 2,500-3,000 litres for diluting it directly in the tank. It is the capacity most requested by farmers. The grey colour of the tank is not accidental - it prevents algae from growing and helps to heat up the water for spraying.
Merlo E-Worker electric telescopic handlers
E-Worker is a product combining the features of many advanced and applied technologies in telescopic handlers and forklift trucks. It is a fully emission-free, fuel-efficient and noiseless electric-powered telescopic handler with a very broad range of applications.
EnergyMIx - gel foliar fertiliser with macro and micro nutrients
energyMIx is a very powerful gel foliar fertilizer with macro- and micro-nutrients The high concentration of ingredients makes it possible to use very small doses of fertilizer. The gel formulation makes the preparation of the spray easy and guarantees very good solubility of the fertiliser and nutrients absorption. It is intended for use in agricultural, vegetable and fruit crops. A proper proportion of easily accessible macro- and microelements guarantees: stimulation of plant growth and development, reduced response to water and thermal stress, increased resistance of plants to diseases and pests, regeneration of damaged plants, high yield, good quality crops. energyMIx, apart from basic macronutrients, also contains chelated form of Cu, Zn, Mn, Fe, Co, as well as silicon and cobalt. Additionally, it acts as an adjuvant, thus improving the properties of the spray and facilitating the penetration of components into the plant.
Robot FarmDroid FD20
FarmDroid FD20 is fully automatic, thanks to its precise GPS RTK technology and photovoltaic power supply - it sows and weeds without the necessity to monitor its work. The distance between rows and distance between plants, sowing depth, speed and tolerances can be adapted to different crops, various soil types and individual farmer's preferences. FD20 is designed to handle different crops, so the same machine can be used for e.g. sugar beet and onions. So far, we have had experience with sugar beet, red beet, onions, spinach, kale, flower seeds, turnips, parsley, lettuce and various herbs, and more crops are constantly being added.
BISO 3D Varioflex Air header for grain and soybean harvesting
Weight optimisation with simultaneous increase in stability for cutting widths up to 18.5 m. Picking up different crops without repositioning times, intelligent adjustment of the cutter bar to the terrain. Precise cutting at the desired height. Minimal losses on the cutting table.
Innovative 365FarmNet modules for soil protection, food safety and reducing agricultural production costs
365FarmNet is a farm management software programme built around innovative modules for soil conservation, food safety and agricultural production costs reduction. Among the wide range of modules supporting crop production, the following systems stand out in particular: the Agropressure module by Michelin, LACOS field trip planning, automatic field documentation using the 365Active system, and the 365FarmNet Crop View module.
INOMEL – innovative water circulation control system for land reclamation facilities
The INOMEL system related to agricultural land reclamation is the answer of Polish scientists to the climatic and market challenges affecting the conditions of agricultural production. Target audiences include farmers, land tenants, water companies and other organisations in the agricultural environment. The system is based on mathematical models of under seepage irrigation and regulated drainage, meteorological forecasts and simple land reclamation devices, as well as remote sensing support useful for assessing the condition of field crops.
The SatAgro platform profitability module (mapping the profitability of agricultural fields)
The innovative module of the SatAgro platform enables the mapping of profitability of agricultural fields and a detailed analysis of its components – costs and revenues, taking into account their spatial differentiation in various periods. Thanks to easy access to full information on expenses incurred on cultivation and the possibility of comparing them with the results achieved, farms can focus on ensuring the profitability of their production rather than maximising yields at any cost.
Mzuri Pro-Til XZACT combined cultivator and seed drill
Mzuri Pro-TIl Xzact is an innovative precision combined cultivator and seed drill for sowing e.g. maize, soybean, oilseed rape, and sunflower. The XZACT system is equipped with an electronic seeding unit which allows precise seeding of individual seeds. Constant hydraulic pressure on each coulter arm ensures even seeding depth. The system is equipped with a seed metering mechanism with vacuum control, which allows precise placement of seeds regardless of their size.
Lider calcium fertilizers with unique MicroActive technology
Lider calcium fertilizers produced with the use of the unique MicroActive technology are manufactured thanks to very fine grinding of dolomite rocks. As a result of this technology, we obtain active lime particles with dimensions below 10 microns. The final drying process results in hard lime granules with minimal water content. Thanks to screening and dedusting of the granules, easy sowing is possible. The granules are 100% water-soluble. Reactivity over 90%. 100% organic fertilizer.
eAgronom carbon programme
Agriculture can help reverse carbon pollution of our planet. Agricultural practices associated with sequestering atmospheric carbon and reducing its emissions are called carbon farming. As a result of these practices, the so-called carbon credits are created. It is an opportunity to secure the future of farms in financial and environmental terms. At eAgronom, we believe that carbon farming can help create sustainable and climate-resilient farms.
TITAN 860 is a double-sided rear flail mower, which together with the MAMUT 280 or 300 front mower provides the biggest working width in the offer of SaMASZ flail mowers – even up to 8.6 m. Thanks to exceptionally robust construction, the machine can be used in very difficult conditions. It is designed for mulching plant residues and stubble fields after maize, cereals, sunflowers, and also uncultivated land. TITAN 860 is also used for controlling the European corn borer, a pest which affects maize.
