- The Kverneland Onyx will be combined with the Kverneland iXtra LiFe for band spraying or the application of liquid fertiliser
- In combination with Kverneland a-drill and front hopper f-drill, the simultaneous application of solid fertiliser or companion crops in one pass with the mechanical weeding process is possible.
After the acquisition of BC Technique S.A.S. on 31.01.23, in the last months Kverneland Group has been working hard to fully integrate the new product group into the product portfolio of arable equipment. The top-of-the-range rotary hoes, inter-row cultivators and guidance interfaces perfectly complement the high quality Kverneland Group offering. These products and solutions fit well for the future of sustainable farming, and enable the customers to achieve efficient, accurate and consistent cultivation and weed control.
Next to a safe food production, the protection of the environment has become one of the key topics for the farmer. Recent European regulations, rules and policies have defined new standards and reduce the kinds of pesticides allowed. Thus, mechanical weeding has become one of the answers for the farmers to meet these standards ensuring, at the same time, healthy plant growth as the basis for a successful yield.
“The first implements have been in field all over Europe this season for presentation and training of the Kverneland distribution network. Very happy with the high quality and convinced by the strong performance in the field, we are ready to go for the full launch,” DirkJan Stapel, Director Marketing and Sales Arable Systems Division explains.
The inter-row cultivator Onyx, guidance interface Lynx as well as the rotary hoe, Helios, will be fully available with the new price-list from 1st September 2023.
Farmers’ requirements are multivarious, depending very much on the various crops, soil conditions and farming systems. In order to have the right solution for all these individual challenges, Kverneland has extended the scope of application of Mechanical Weeding by combining systems.
With the specialists on board from the Kverneland Centre of Excellence for Crop Care and Seeding Equipment, the Kverneland Group has right from the start worked with full swing on further developments. To offer the full machine combination from one supplier will ensure complete compatibility and operator friendliness.
“We are very proud to present first combined systems of mechanical weeding with chemical crop care and fertiliser application already on this year’s Agritechnica,” Dirk-Jan Stapel announces:
These developments are in process and will be available in limited edition from 2024.
