The AGRAVIS crop cultivation advisors spoke and discussed with the farmers on various subjects, under the motto "Meeting for extra harvesters". "As a result of the new requirements in agriculture, there are many questions about Greening, Fertilising and also about spreading or using slurry and germination residues," explains Franz Schulze Eilfing, head of the crop cultivation division at AGRAVIS Raffeisen AG.
In addition, the questions and conclusions from the extensive experiments will be explained during guided field trips. In a direct comparison – plot next to plot – the farmers were able to direclty follow the individual treatment steps. "For many people, this involves in particular the use of mineral fertilisers and the effective use of nitrogen fertilisers. In the test field it is possible to assess various infestations with fungal infections and defence options, as well as to explain variety properties in detail," says Franz Schulze Eilfing.
Apart from the crops, the selection and correct use of the respective resources and cultivation methods play an important role. Representatives of the AGRAVIS Technik Group presented selected drill, fertilisation and crop protection techniques. "The trend is moving ever more towards Precision Farming, which is why are also presenting the Isaria sensor here, which allows a plot-specific fertilisation in grain," explains Wilhelm Jürgens, director of AGRAVIS Technik Saltenbrock GmbH.
