A Yorkshire farm machinery importer will attend Lamma 2015 in order to showcase its new machinery range.
East Yorkshire based Manterra Ltd. is the sole UK importer for Unia Group, Central Europe’s leading manufacturer of agricultural machinery and will exhibit Unia Group’s spreaders, Kos semi mounted stubble cultivators, Ares discs and Max tined cultivators at the show.
Of the UK launch of Unia machinery, Manterra founder, farmer and agronomist Andrew Manfield said: “Unia could be seen as the Dacia of the UK agricultural machinery market. Modern Western European designs built to withstand a tough life on Eastern European farms but with an unbelievably low price tag. As the Dacia is currently the fastest selling car brand in Europe, so the Unia will follow in agricultural machinery terms.
“I chose Lamma for the main launch of Unia as it’s the UK’s leading Machinery show which, like Unia, offers value for money for the farmer and the exhibitor”
Lamma 2015 takes place on 21st and 22nd January, 2015 at the East of England showground in Peterborough. Manterra will be on Stand 364 and will also be exhibiting Duport spoke wheel liquid fertilizer injectors.
Manterra was established by farmer and agronomist, Andrew Manfield in 2011 and has its foundations in a farming business that was established at the beginning of the last century. Manterra is also the key technology supplier to the Stockbridge Technology Centre SATS4CROPS project that has secured Innovate UK funding for a three year trial to commercialise innovative precision farming technology.
