Kverneland f-drill maxi duo combination - convincing in Sweden

"I like the good manoeuvrability and weight distribution with this combination. The overview is perfect. In one pass, I prepare a weatherproof seedbed and sow directly. Many farmers have stopped in the field and are interested," says Henrik Ohldin.

Kverneland f-drill maxi duo combination - convincing in Sweden

The new Kverneland front hopper generation in combination with the folding 6m power harrow NG-H F30 excels in perfect seedbed preparation and sowing all in one pass in Sweden. 

Two to four passes with a cultivator or harrow are usually required to prepare a perfect seedbed in Sweden.

Henrik Ohldin, who works with GJ Maskin AB in Sweden demonstrates the combination consisting of Kverneland front tank f-drill maxi duo in combination with the folding 6 m power harrow NG-H F30 including a CX-II coulter bar on various farms. "The soils in our region east of Lake Vättern are of medium to heavy texture. With this combination, I can work the soil in one pass."

Traditionally, tine cultivators or harrows prepare the seedbed in Sweden in several passes, but with rising energy and fuel prices, a single-pass system could be a real alternative.

"I like the good manoeuvrability and weight distribution with this combination. The overview is perfect. In one pass, I prepare a weatherproof seedbed and sow directly. Many farmers have stopped in the field and are interested," says Henrik Ohldin.

South of Stenungsund, Anrås Gård is run, so far as a leasehold, by Pontus and Mathilda Sandén. The milking parlour, with a tied-up system of short stalls and tube milking, was rebuilt after a fire in 1994 and has room for 55 yearling cows and recruitment. On a nearby farm that the couple also leases, there is a stable with room for 120 bulls that are raised for slaughter. These are partly the farm's own dairy bulls and partly bulls that are bought half a year old in the autumn and sent for slaughter about a year later.

Confidence with Kverneland

Pontus and Mathilda Sandén believe in a future in agriculture. The planning of a new stable with robotic milking and a substantial increase in the numbe...
