You can look forward to a modern design, latest information, newest machines, and much more. On Monday, you will have all the right reasons to visit our website and have a look around.

BEDNAR FMT turns plans into reality. The company helps create the trends in modern agriculture. It manufactures agricultural machines for the whole world and is growing continuously. The current capacity of 1,500 machines will increase by at least 30% within the next two years, thanks to the new two-storey production hall, the construction of which started at the turn of 2018/2019. The completion and expansion of production are expected in autumn 2019. Find more in the report below.

Modern agriculture today also exists in the virtual world. Take computers and game consoles, for example. You can practice farming and use state-of-the-art technology in your fields. And such technology also includes BEDNAR FMT machines. And what machines are these? What is the Farming Simulator? When will the new Farming Simulator 19 be available? Read on.

It has become a tradition during the second half of the summer to welcome business partners at our Vinoř headquarters for comprehensive pre-seasonal meetings, from Tuesday to Thursday at the end of July, through August until the beginning of September. The aim of these meetings is to present the activities of our individual departments to our business partners and to set the frameworks and plans for co-operation in the upcoming season. What did the sales representatives and dealers learn? Who came the furthest distance?

Record number of visitors at Okra Show, Finland

The agricultural exhibition at Oripää airfield started off in the 1980 as auction of used agricultural machinery. In 1982, for the first time, agricultural machines and equipment were introduced.  Approximately 2,000 people visited the site.


This year on single Saturday, July 7, 26,200 visitors attended OKRA Agricultural Show, which is a new daily visitor record. During a total of four days, 81,050 guests visited Okra. To date, every new show set a new visitor record.

There were more than 550 stands in the Okra Oripää airport covering 23 hectares, where hundreds of companies were represented.


The exhibitors have been happy with the sale,” says Jukka Isotalo, exhibition manager.

Juha-Pekka Toukola of AgriToukola Machinery Oy, sole BEDNAR importer in Finland, confirms too: “We will have to follow up a lot of inquiries that we received during the show. Omega drill and Fenix tine cultivators were biggest attractors from Bednar machines.

Total of four BEDNAR machines were displayed on AgriToukola Machinery’s stand: drill OMEGA OO 6000 FERTI, disc harrow SWIFTERDISC XO 6000 F, tine cultivator FENIX FO 5000 L and rotary cutter MULCHER MZ 6000.


Canada AG in Motion 2018

SEE Technology. TOUCH Innovation. BE Empowered. This slogan tells us in advance that the AG in Motion is becoming a more and more popular show in Western Canadian provinces. This year it was the 4th exhibition show. Possibly the biggest advantage is that customers are able to see the machinery (crop field tests also) in action and live. Bednar FMT has attended the show for the second time with 4 models of machinery this year:  A Swifterdisc XE 12000, Terralnad TO 6000, Mulcher MZ 4500 and an Atlas HO 8000.

Every time I have the opportunity to be in North America, I l realize the potential and the value of this part of the globe for us.

After my last visit to Canada, together with Juraj, I saw the future of sales in Canada being very positive. Over the past three years, showing Canadian farmers the strengths and principles of our technologies, we are raising their interest and understanding of what we can offer them. Of course, with the growth of farmers’ interest, the dealer’s interest grows.
Of course, the technology used today in Canada and North America differs greatly from the conventional ones that apply to Europe. Not least with water, the stiffening of “submarine” layers and other problems clearly suggest that our technology is needed here and farmers understand the need for them. This also proves unusual interest when we explain everything patiently to them and we show the machines in the fields and the increasing sales confirm it.

As I said, Canada is a very different and complex market, but as the customer’s interest suggests, I see it as a market with huge potential. We are only at the beginning, so we will see what the future will bring us. I look forward to it very much.

After three years working in the Canadian market I have learned lots from local farmers in different provinces. Overall I can say the provinces in Canada have a very different agriculture style and use of soil tillage equipment (if any). This varies according to the crop style, West/East Canadian provinces and of course family background (origin of country). Where usually people who are originally from Europe are using more intensive soil tillage.

The soil over the provinces is very variable and farmers with large fields have shorter farming seasons due to the long and strong winters. This can limit the use of the same soil tillage equipment as in Europe. But as the world of farming is changing due to customer demands to have more healthy and rich crops „at the table“, the farmers start to use less and less weed killing chemicals, which are causing most of the problems to the soil and freshness/health of the crops. These are a few reasons why I believe the Canadian market is going to be Bednar yellow especially with models like the TERRALAND TO 6000 and XE 12 000.

Gerard Bless (Area representative for Canada)

AG IN MOTION 2018 TOTAL VISITORS 32000, A VERY  IMPORTANT FARM SHOW IN WESTERN CANADA.

Bednar was present for the second time and attendance was very good, with a lot of interest in the TERRALAND 6000 TO. As the prairies are farmed no-till with very large equipment and compaction is visible on most or all fields, farmers are looking at possibilities to fix this problem. Pattison AG will be demonstrating a TERRALAND 6000 TO’s in multiple locations in Saskatchewan and Manitoba among their customers. Bednar has a lot of interest because of its large size machinery, very suitable for prairie style farming.

The A-disc is handling trash better than machinery designed for “vertical” tillage at 1.5″ depth. And the TERRALAND hardened tines will last longer than any other competing brand in the market. Starting, mainly with these models in Canada, Bednar is the competition in price, options and quality of field finish. Farmers are contacting their dealer for more info and machinery availability as it is.

With dealers servicing every province in Canada, Bednar will be available for every farmer that is looking to bring his yield to the next level. From shallow to deep tillage, and high speed air seeders up to 9 meters with 5″ row spacing, all farmers small and large in Canada will have access to affordable and top notch Bednar machinery.

Most popular model in Canada SWIFTERDISC XE 12 000 with A-disc profile, which is more suitable than “classic” notched discs.
