AMAZONE - Canada


1.4 Solutions in the area of soil protection and crop diversity

Examples from the AMAZONE Group

Soil protection, soil fertility

Agricultural production processes as part of integrated crop production:

Further development of the conservation soil tillage and the mulch and direct sowing process in a changed plant protection situation:

Cenius 3003 Special

  • Process chains with Catros compact disc harrows, Cenius mulch cultivators and Cirrus mulch seed drill combinations or Primera DMC direct seed drills
  • Water-conserving and weed-reducing strip till with Minimum TillDisc with Cirrus mulch seed drill combinations

Promoting year-round soil coverage:

Cirrus 6003-2CC

  • Cirrus-CC sowing combination with GreenDrill harrow-mounted seed drill for the simultaneous application of seed and undersown crops or catch crops in the triple-shoot process

Protective mechanisms against soil compaction:

  • Lightweight design with profiles e.g. for frames and booms of crop protection sprayers
  • Use of track guiding systems such as following equipment with trailed spreaders and sprayers

Crop diversity, crop rotation

  • As part of the 3C crop establishment concept, trials are being carried out globally on 850 ha with partner farms
  • Tests and research into precise row-specific land cultivation are being carried out at the AMAZONE test centre in Wambergen as part of the CRF arable farming project (Controlled Row Farming)
  • Undersown crops, binary seeding, seed mixtures

Mulch and direct sowing reduce emissions and erosion
