Three Agritechnica silver medals for Amazone

The first successes for Amazone on the run-up to Agritechnica 2019. The neutral panels of experts appointed by the DLG (German Agricultural Association) has awarded silver medals to three of Amazone’s innovations.

Amazone_EasyMix_de
EasyMix – processing via the App

The first of the awards received by Amazonen-Werke goes to EasyMix, one of the components of the new Amazone mySpreader App. EasyMix is used for simplifying the evaluation and adjustment for when spreading blended fertilisers. Different fertilisers are often mixed together to save on the number of applications and so reduce operating costs. However, accurate application of blended fertilisers gets increasingly more difficult as a result of the wider work widths, as the different fertilisers have different trajectories. Finding the correct setting for all the various constituents is often very difficult. With EasyMix, Amazone now offers a tool that can check the suitability of mixing the different constituents in the blend and find the best possible compromise for the setting; knowing the spreading nature of the different fertiliser in the mix.

Amazone_AmaSelect Row
Row-specific band spraying

The second award-winning innovation for Amazone, AmaSelect Row, enables all sprayers equipped with AmaSelect nozzle bodies to switch from the tractor seat from whole-area application to row-based band spraying. This enables the grower to reduce consumption of plant protection agents by up to 65%. This requires special SpotFan 40-03 nozzles with a spraying angle of just 40°. These nozzles work without overlap and apply 100% of the plant protection agent across the whole width of the spray cone. As standard, band applications can be carried out on a 50 cm row spacing but, by means of the nozzle extension kit, row spacings of 25 cm and 75 cm can also be achieved. Switching between individual nozzle positions, or between whole-area and band application can easily be achieved at the press of a button on the terminal. The combination of the AmaSelect nozzle body with the active ContourControl boom guidance system fully maximises the advantages of the system, as maintaining the height above the target is particularly important in this case.

Amazone_AmaSense Weather
AmaSense Weather, the temperature and air humidity sensor

Silver medal No. 3 was given to Amazone in conjunction with eight other partners for the Nevonex system powered by Bosch. Amazone has developed the AmaSense Weather feature for the accessible and neutral digital ecosystem. Plant protection agents react differently and with varying levels of efficacy in changing weather conditions. Temperature and air humidity change with the time of day and the topography of the field. AmaSense Weather is a sensor that allows Amazone crop protection sprayers to recognise the current temperature and air humidity. The integration of the sensor into the Nevonex system makes it possible to provide the sensor data to the farmer, agronomist or an external expert system. The user can immediately respond when critical thresholds are reached during application. The knowledge of the whereabouts of the boundaries of part-areas with a different micro-climate increases each time the crop protection sprayer drives over the field. The plant protection treatment can thus be adapted to the micro-climate of these part-areas, which further increases the efficacy of the plant protection agents applied.

At Agritechnica, AMAZONEN-WERKE will exhibit to visitors, across a 2700 m² stand in Hall 9, more than 60 different machines and functional models, including 30 new machines and agronomical solutions.

Shallow soil tillage with the AMAZONE C-Mix duckfoot share

Now also available in a highly wear-resistant, HD variant: Due to increasing requirements for field hygiene and more attention to ground water conservation, shallow soil tillage is becoming increasingly important. Weed seeds and volunteer grains need to be kept near the soil surface, whilst germinated plants are completely cut off at the root.

A new flagship in the Amazone plough world: the AMAZONE Tyrok 400 semi-mounted reversible plough.

Higher speed for higher output with minimum wear
With the Tyrok 400, Amazone now launches a completely newly-developed semi-mounted reversible plough in a choice of 7, 8 or 9 furrows for the 400 HP tractor class. The main features of this plough are its higher output, even under continuous load, a perfect quality of work and outstanding robustness. At the same time, the Tyrok offers a high level of comfort thanks to its very simple, safe and precise...

Silver medal for the IceTiger winter salt spreader at demopark

Amazone has been awarded a silver medal for the IceTiger winter salt spreader at the 2021 demopark exhibition. A jury of recognised experts gave the Award to the new mounted spreader, which is equipped with the innovative Smart Precision System, and can be used for the application of both salt and brine.

New X-Cutter disc for very shallow soil tillage

Amazone has extended the range of disc options for the Catros compact disc harrow with the new X-Cutter disc. This special, wavey profile disc is used for very shallow soil tillage. The special disc profile produces an intensive movement of the full-surface area and is sure to impress with its high mixing intensity close to the surface that generates faster rotting. This provides optimum conditions for the following crop..
Very shallow tillage plays an...

The wind on your side

Amazone WindControl is now available independent of ArgusTwin.
The wind is always blowing somewhere in the world and this represents a major challenge in maintaining an even fertiliser spread pattern. The Amazone WindControl system means that the effect of the wind on the spread pattern is permanently monitored and automatically compensated for. WindControl can now also be used for the ZA-TS mounted spreaders and ZG-TS trailed spreaders independently of the...

Amazone UX SmartSprayer - Spot Farming at the highest level now in field use

Amazone will start field usage of the UX 5201 SmartSprayer trailed sprayer with its 36 metre boom width during the spring season 2021. The pinpoint application of foliar herbicides will be carried out "green in green" in real time during the day-to-day spraying activities of a large arable farm. The camera technology from Bosch detects weeds in row crops and the xarvio™ Agronomic Decision-making Engine (ADE) from BASF Digital Farming Solutions decides on the application.
