The year 2018 has been full of success for Farmet, whether in regard to the new products introduced to the market, increased production capacity, or the reinforcement of our position in the current and new countries.
Three Farmet machines competed in a difficult cultivation match in the former Cidlina River bed: Triton 450 PS, a specialist in crop residue incorporation; Fantom 650 PRO, a light ploughshare cultivator and stubble plough; and Digger 3, a deep cultivator (chisel plough). The field where corn for grain grew was harvested with a combined harvester. Moreover, wild boars ate in the field and crushed it, which made the cultivation conditions harder. The extremely heavy soil did not allow for cultivation deeper than 17 cm. In spite of these conditions, we compared the work of 3 different machines.
Since 2015, catch crops have been one of the ways fulfilling the function of greening. Greening is one of the conditions for receiving direct payments. To meet the conditions of greening, farmers choose from a wide range of EFA areas (Ecological Focus Area). When choosing an area with catch crops, the seeding of a mix of catch crops is required.
