In order to enable you to achieve optimum yields AMAZONE offers the comprehensive advise for the different systems on the basis of longstanding soil tillage and sowing tests that AMAZONE carries out in co-operation with  science at different sites.

The choice of  trial fields represents the different farming possibilities and structures, keeping in mind the different climatic conditions and crop rotations. We will keep you informed of the most important results on the following pages.

All up dated test results (state autumn 2012) are available in the pdf files at the relevant test sites.

 

Trial sites

Leipzig

Illustration zur Versuchsfläche Leipzig

The site Leipzig is representative for arable farming on large field structures. The climate is continentally influenced and characterized by reduced rain and pre-summer drought. Water and climate are the yield limiting factors.

Huntlosen

The site Huntlosen in Lower Saxony is representative for arable farming in processing regions on light soils with smaller field structures.

Tickhill (England)

Tickhill

The trial site at Tickhill (South Yorkshire) is situated on a limestone ridge. The crop rotation with winter cereals and winter oilseed rape is typical of the region. High yields are usual and are based on an annual rain fall of 750 mm.

Hellvoetsluis

Hellvoetsluis

The Hellvoetsluis trial site  is characterised by extreme soil and climatic conditions.

Westerkappeln

Westerkappeln

The site Westerkappeln near Osnabrück is representative for arable farming in processing regions on lighte soils with smaller field structures.

Hasbergen-Gaste

Hasbergen-Gaste

The region with predominantly sandy sites is characterised by mixed farming with animal husbandry which is reflected in the field sizes and the crop rotation.

Gablingen

Gablingen

The soil conditions of the Southern German site are characterised by a shallow sandy loam of medium soil quality above gravel.

Vladimir

Versuchsfläche Vladimir

The trial site lies approx. approx. 250 km east of Moscow. The site belongs to the none black soil sites where  animal production prevails.  Here, the soils tend to be heavier and difficult to operate. The average rainfall is approx. 650 mm/year.
