Farmers from the Czech Republic and Slovakia got an earlier opportunity to see a huge selection of Great Plains machines when they attended the Case Field Days – also held at Kamen - where almost 40 of the company’s machines were on show.
While the planned programme of field demonstrations could not be completed, Vasek Madl from AgriCS says the quality of the technical presentations made during the two days ensured the visitors had an enjoyable and profitable time:
“We had an audience of over 4,500 people over two days, and the technical presentations covered a wide range of subjects.
“Some of these related specifically to aspects on the machines themselves, such as transmissions and engines, and others dealt with agronomic issues like restoring soil structure and Great Plains’ thoughts on one-pass oilseed rape establishment.
“Farmers in the country are positive because this year’s yield prospects are very good, although commodity prices are lower.
“We had a lot of interest in the SL700 and SL600, as well as the Aqueel 7.6m roller, from those farmers looking to save time and costs cultivating, and those looking to conserve moisture.
“The Twin-Row maize planter, which has been doing good work in field trials in the country, is also attracting attention”.
