Kirov branch of EkoNiva-Tekhnika presented the latest novelties in farm machinery building, including John Deere 6135B, 6155M, 6195M tractors.

‘Today we are displaying a new series of John Deere tractors with the capacity of 155 hp and 195 hp’, says Sergey Zhukov, Director of Kirov branch of EkoNiva-Tekhnika. ‘The machines are equipped with additional options that will make the work easier and increase the operator comfort.’

John Deere 455 grain drills and John Deere 915 V-Rippers providing high quality tillage and reducing soil compaction were among the hits of the trade show. JCB 531-70 telehandlers, John Deere 8300 self-propelled forageharvesters and the new development of the ROMAX plant - ALFA and BETA grain cleaning systems also raised great interest of the visitors.

‘BVL V-LOAD Cutter Master 130 was one of the most popular machines’, says Sergey Gylin, Head of Sales Department of Kirov branch of EkoNiva-Tekhnika. ‘The mounted machine is designed for smooth silage cutting and loading into a vehicle or a feed wagon.’

Several JCB 531-70 Agri Telehandlers were purchased straight away by some farming enterprises of Kirov oblast.

‘Participation in this exhibition is a good way to solve topical issues just before sowing,’ says Lyudmila Zykova, Sales Manager of EkoNiva-Semena. EkoNiva’s booth was very popular with visitors. The farmers of Kirov oblast were interested in the seeds of cereals and legumes, especially in wheat varieties Triso and Licamero, barley varieties Margret and Calcule and pea varieties Rocket and Belmondo. Lentils were not in high demand, though, this crop is yet to gain popularity in Kirov.

‘The main goal of the farmers from Kirov oblast is to feed the cows’, says Lyudmila Zykova. ‘Mostly they were interested in the seeds of fodder grasses and grain crops.’
