Vaderstad – the technology of the future

Farm directors from Ryazan, Kirov, Altay Territory, Moscow, and Voronezh spent seven days in Sweden. During this time they visited the Vaderstad factory and several farms of various types, where they noted the high level of farming culture in small, by Russian standards, agricultural enterprises (on average 200-500 ha). At a seed farm they had the opportunity to acquaint themselves with the peculiarities of grain and grass seed production.

“The modern equipment and technologies used on farms in Sweden make it possible to attain grain yields of 8,000-10,000 kg/ha,” says the head of KKh Yenisey Viktor Kosach. "We can learn a lot here with respect both to farm maintenance and the use of modern equipment.”

The tour of the Vaderstad factory clearly demonstrated the advantages of this company’s agricultural machines to the guests from Russia. They noted the modern facilities, the constant modernization of production, and the technical innovations. The equipment demonstration convinced everyone that the future is in these kinds of aggregates.

“A Rapid drill from Vaderstad is already operating on our farm,” says Director General of OAO Probuzhdenie Nikolay Filatkin. “We are satisfied with this quality equipment. That’s why we are now planning to acquire a Top Down cultivator.”
