No rain can wash away the interest!

Heavy rain didn’t spoil the annual Field Day in Ivanovo, where local farmers and their neighbours met to talk business and look out for new agricultural machines.

Governor of Ivanovo Oblast Pavel Konkov also attended the festivities and thanked the leaders in agricultural production. He remarked that rain didn’t wash away farmers’ interest and prevent those who strive to work more efficiently from coming.

Then the head of the oblast visited exhibition stands of farming equipment dealers including one featuring AgroCentreZakharovo. Mr. Konkov was curious about what equipment farmers are now buying.

“The tractors from AGCO Corporation – Massey Ferguson, Valtra and Fendt – with power ranging from 150 to 370 hp are in great demand,” explained Yevgeny Lukyanov, chief of the service department at AgroCentreZakharovo LLC. “By the way, these machines are manufactured in Russia, in Golitsyno near Moscow. In addition to excellent technical and performance characteristics, they save fuel, which is not that cheap now.”

Ivanovo farmers paid particular interest to the Massey Ferguson 8690 tractor (370 hp), while livestock producers and potato growers liked the T series Valtra tractors. They are also rather economical and compact and can be used in winter not only in animal husbandry but also in utility work or for transporting cargo.
