Independent professional contest of the AGROSALON innovative machinery
First of all, allow me to present an independent international jury of the AGROSALON Innovative Machinery Contest. The same team of kamikaze was in the epicenter of the background noise that erupted around the Contest.
After all, they were those who have taken responsibility for choosing the best among all submitted applications for the contest. And, we did not meet more diverse nominees. And, whoever was chosen by the jury, whether it is the large and nice-looking machine from Ropa or an asymmetrical injector two-nozzle injector from Lechrer, in any case, the choice is made.
In order not to overload the printing space, we have especially highlighted Rostselmash and Amazone, together with Eurotechnika.
Rostselmash is recognized as the noisiest, as the hottest disputes flared up in its honor. Many people doubted in the new 5D-system of cleaning of the RSM harvester, and only the field work will demonstrate the real value of the 5D-system. Nevertheless, this Rostselmash innovation guaranteed the silver medal.
And, Versatile 460 DeltaTrack caterpillar drive tractor was recognized as the gold medalist and deserved it, as it is used in the fields and is appreciated by users for its advantages.
For Amazone and Eurotechnica, the current innovation contest turned out to be the most productive.
Amazone's AmaSpot system of sensor nozzles made a real sensation at the jury meeting. The Catros + 12003-2TS disc harrow and Primera DMC 12001-2 seeder were unanimously recognized by all the jury members as silver medalists.
