This Year 2015 is the year BEDNAR FMT breaks the ice by importing its implements to South Africa. Our first cooperation starts with manufacturer and importer, BPI and Michigan Equipment. The southern hemisphere autumn means its time for farmers to start harvesting corns. As the farmers are in a big area of South Africa which is very advanced in growing technologies, the maintaining of the straw residues is still in an early stage. The reason is simple, Not enough high-quality implements. So Bednar FMT in cooperation with good South African companies is showing farmers the first machines directly on their fields.
Last year BEDNAR launched a new inter-row cultivator the Row-Master RN_S specialising on the hoeing of sugar beet.
