Right on the verge of the harvest, the company STROM organized a stunning filed day exhibition in cooperation with the ZS Sloveč farm, where those in attendance were introduced to not only a brand new range of tillage machines with the latest developments but also a prototype tillage machine that works in the ridges. Before kick-off there was a race for parking spots with over 600 visitors vying for the best vantage points to see the machines in action.

The event took place on 5 ha piece of land with spring barley, which was harvested using GPS. After the official opening ceremony various tillage machines were gradually introduced, categorically sorted from machines for deep loosening to machines for soil preparation. 
  

   
 Crowds of people make their way through the entrance gate from the early morning hours onwards.  All of the free spaces around the machines were occupied by the general public and other practitioners.
 

A new type of aggressive disc, the A-Disc for the ATLAS AO disc cultivator

In the disc cultivator section a new disc harrow, the ATLAS AO 5000, was introduced and was equipped with an aggressive type of disc called the A-Disc, for highly improved harvest residue work. The profiled shape of the disc allows you to extract more clay from the soil, than the standard notched disc. Every single protrusion of the profiled disc extracts clay and moves it towards the plant mulch, where it's mixed.

 

The Terraland TO - a new trend in deep tillage

 

The second newcomer to show itself at the field day field was the semi-mounted chisel plough, the Terraland TO 6000. Its parameters designate it as a powerful alternative for deep tillage with a working width of 4 to 6 meters whilst maintaining a transport width of 3m. The machine was equipped with a towing eye to connect the rear rollers as specified by our customer requirements.

 

This year’s new big thing is undoubtedly the Terraland, chisel plough, seen here in version TN 3000 H M7R with hydraulic overload protection.

This year's second newcomer the Terraland TO 6000 semi chisel plough, which deservedly captivated the attention.

 

The Terrastrip – paving the way for new forms of tillage

 

At the end of the live demonstration, the public was first introduced to a new prototype for soil cultivation along the ridges, aptly named the TERRASTRIP. The initial testing phase was conducted last year and this spring it came time to perform the seeding test in ridges, of which the results were laid under intense scrutiny. It is a system, which combines deep loosening whilst adding fertilizer directly into the soil pit and just below the soil surface.

 

Satisfaction on allround

 

 

The Field day went off in a friendly atmosphere and sunny weather. That with the excellent food on offer made for a great day out for many of the visitors. The large turnout at the Field day confirms the growing interest in our machines which is something we believe is still a growing trend.
