AgroCentre, the centrepiece of the Korenskaya Fair

The Inter-Regional Kurskaya Korenskaya Fair held in Kursk is the visiting card of this city, which is also referred to as the city of nightingales. This year the fair was arranged for the 12th time since its re-establishment, bringing together some 1,400 participants.

The AgroCentre’s presence was impressively big. The company brought to the site more than twenty agricultural machines and equipment for various jobs. The product line of Challenger tractors was appealing to the eye. The Series Eight Challenger РњРў800РЎ (470-610 hp) tractors were, indisputably, unbeatable favourites. Among the especially noteworthy tilling equipment were the disc harrows and Sunflower Challenger pre-seeding cultivators along with Carrier and Top Down cultivators from Vaderstad.

AgroCentre specialists are pinning their hopes on the Swedish company's new products, like Spirit and Tempo, in the expectation that they too will appeal to Russian farmers like the famous Rapid seeder.

“This is the fourth year our farm has used two Rapid Vaderstad four-row seeders”, says Gennady Baulin, head of the Slavyanskoye Naslediye farm. “Not a single serious failure has occurred all through this period. This multi-role machine performs six operations in a single pass. We seed wheat, barley, rye, and maize, invariably obtaining smooth and regular sprouts that subsequently yield excellent crops”.
