A delegation of AgroCentre’s customers started this summer with a trip to the very heart of Väderstad concern located in Sweden. Visits to the factory of the leader among seeding and tillage equipment manufacturers have become a heart-warming tradition. This one went under the flag of Tempo, a row-crop drill.

The level of agriculture development is to a large extent determined by technologies, equipment, and machinery available. All the latest technologic innovations and sales hits were displayed at the Field Day event in Yaroslavl region, which took place in the fields of Pakhma Agricultural Firm for the second year running.

Kverneland Group, Norway’s largest concern, is celebrating its 135th anniversary this year. Over the years the company has gone a long way from a village forge to an international corporation. The company has factories in 9 countries worldwide. In the anniversary year the company has opened a new production site in Russia.

Simple, reliable, all-purpose: such are the terms applied by farmers across the globe to the Strawmaster 7000 wide grip, spiked tooth harrow from the Canadian Company Degelman. AgroCentre specialists believe that this unique product of North American designers has shown itself to advantage on Russian fields. Today an increasing number of farmers are showing an interest in this tool.

The Tempo R12 twelve-row cultivating seeder from the Swedish Vaderstad corporate group set a new record, sowing 306 hectares with sunflower within 24 hours. The sowing proceeded at a breath-taking speed of 19 km/h. The seeding experiment took place in Bulgaria in early April. Tempo has operated on the Russian fields for two years, also setting records both in speed and in seeding precision.

Since last year, AgroCentre has been supplying new JCB SSL 175 telescopic mini-loaders to the Russian market. Prior to offering new equipment to farmers, the Company gives them an opportunity to test it on their farms. The JCB SSL 175 loader has passed tests simultaneously on three farms of the Yaroslavl oblast.

Last year Tyumen farmers acquired around 1,200 units of agricultural equipment, thereby renovating 15% of their tractor and equipment inventory. A modernisation drive swept the oblast. The farmers are particularly interested in modern, highly productive machines. This is obvious from the large influx of guests at the fourth Farming Machines and Equipment exhibition held in early April in the technology park of Vinzili village.

At the annual dealers’ conference held by the AGCO MACHINERY Corporation, AgroCentre was awarded the AGCO PARTS prize for the best support in 2013 of key customers in supplying them with spare parts.

For over eight years, AgroCentre has been supplying Russian farmers with a complete range of JCB telescopic loaders, from compact caterpillar and wheeled mini-loaders to giants capable of lifting a load of up to 5 tonnes. Outstanding productivity and manoeuvrability won them  farmers’ respect in the Black Earth Zone, Central District and the Urals.

Each new season for farmers is akin to a new life. No two seasons are alike. But for agricultural producers of the Central Black Soil region, it starts traditionally at the Expocentre of the Voronezh State Agricultural University with Agroseason. The exhibition has become a source of know-how for the new life.

Since this March, the AgroCentre Company has been offering Russian farmers a prompt and affordable leasing scheme from AGCO Finance. Together with the Kursk branch of AgroCentreLiski, the AGCO Finance Company presented its financial product and provided detailed information about the features of this new service.
