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.

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.

Cenio – the new lightweight and versatile mounted cultivator

With the Cenio, Amazone launched a new 3-row compact mounted cultivator at this year’s Agritechnica 2019. Designed as a lightweight but extremely flexible mulch cultivator, the Cenio rounds off the bottom end of the Amazone cultivator range of 3-point linkage mounted cultivators as the "little brother" of the Cenius.

250,000 Amazone seed drills sold

Having sold 250,000 seed drills, Amazone certainly has special cause for cele-bration. Not only is the quarter of a million sales that have been notched up an impressive feat; but we can look back on a long history of successful seed drill developments.The origin of the seed drill’s history stretches back to 1947, when Dipl. Eng. Heinrich Dreyer worked together with Mr Kademann to develop the first D1 seed drill that had a working width of 2 m and which was equipped with...

Amazone RoTeC coulters – in use more than 1.5 million over

An Amazone innovation enjoys a very special anniversary with 1.5 million RoTeC single disc coulters now in use. And, at the standard row spacings of between 12.5 cm and 16.6 cm, this would correspond to a total working width of over 200 kilometres! The RoTeC coulter shows its strengths particularly under difficult mulch sowing conditions – when, for example, dealing with large quantities of crop residues and on damp, heavy and sticky soils.
Further notable advantages:...

Amazone gets iF Design Award 2019 for AmaTron 4

A further design success for Amazone: the Amazone AmaTron 4 ISOBUS terminal has been awarded the coveted iF Design Award 2019. The intuitive handling and the unique, tablet style design of the terminal were picked out as being of an exemplary design in the industry.

The jury tested, in part, the new interface for itself and, included in its evaluation, the impression gained of the high degree of ergonomics. The terminal is a complete in-house development from Amazone.
