Ryazan Oblast has become a meeting point for local farmers and agricultural businessmen from other regions providing an opportunity to share experience, discuss topical issues and network.

By Viktor BARGOTIN

The innovative agricultural trade show was held at two venues simultaneously: a tour of trial plots of winter wheat, barley, ultra-early soybean varieties and other popular crops took place on the trial grounds of Ryazan Agricultural Research Institute in Podvyazye village, Ryazan oblast; whereas the main venue, Zhitovo village, Rybnoye district, accommodated a massive show case of modern agricultural machinery featuring in excess of 100 units of Russian and imported machinery.

One of the most large-scale displays was put on by EkoNiva-Tekhnika. It included a wide range of JCB and John Deere farm equipment.

‘Today, we would like to highlight the novelty of the season, the John Deere F450E baler’, says Ivan Glebov, Head of Sales Department of Turlatovo separate branch of EkoNiva-Tekhnika. ‘This is an economical high-performance machine providing exceptional pick-up of straw and hay windrows.’

Among other tried-and-trusted machines, EkoNiva-Tekhnika presented the John Deere 8320R tractor with a 352 hp engine which makes it suitable for pulling a virtually any implements. The John Deere T660 combine harvester is currently in high demand since the harvest time is fast drawing nearer and the machine is suitable for harvesting different crops in tough conditions and its design guarantees smooth grain and straw handling.

‘EkoNiva is one of our key partners’, says Grigory Yalovenko, Head of Rus agricultural enterprise. ‘There are two 8-Series and two 7-Series John Deere tractors as well as John Deere 7800 and John Deere 8300 combines in our machinery fleet. It is a pure pleasure to operate these machines. As for the service centre, I think it ranks second to none in Ryazan Oblast.’

Among other gems of EkoNiva’s display, JCB 531-70 AGRI and JCB 535-95 AG telehandlers and a Vario ULW 30 Tandem transfer trailer were presented.

Ryazan Field Day offered not only a rich business programme, but also diverse entertainment. In the regional professional contest for tractor operators called Tractor-show and involving figure driving of a laden tractor along a pre-determined path, the best operators of Ryazan Oblast were singled out.
