The latest drill from Väderstad, the Proceed, has been named the Farm Machine 2022, previously the Machine of the Year award.
It’s presented by a jury of agricultural journalists from over a dozen countries all over Europe.
“We are very proud to win this award, Proceed is a technological leap for precision farming that can place a full range of seeds at the perfect depth with millimetre precision, enabling significant improvements in areas like yield levels, need for tillage, chemical treatment and the use of fertilisers,” said Lars Thylén, director product management planters at Väderstad.
The Proceed is going through field trials in several countries across Europe, with results suggesting stronger crops and increases in plant and root biomass, while also reducing seed rates for cereals.
“It is outstanding in depth-precision, in-row precision, end-of-row precision, as well as seedbed optimization. The result is a quick, even emergence and vital crop population where each plant is provided conditions needed to reach full potential,” said Mr Thylén.
