Event Description

LEMKEN Field Day Showcases New One-Pass high speed Tillage and Seeding combination as well as other new cultivation and ploughing options for Ontario Growers

LEMKEN CANADA is holding its first Field Day for Ontario growers southwest of Mitchell on August 9th unveiling new equipment innovations that can transform a field from stubble to a planted crop in just one pass.

Ontario growers are already familiar with LEMKEN’s RUBIN compact-disc, which has proven to be popular across Canada as a one-pass tillage tool. LEMKEN Canada’s Ontario Sales representative, Jim Docking expects growers will be excited by the new LEMKEN equipment - especially the HELIODOR compact disc, SOLITAIR air seeder and VARIOPACK front furrow press combination.

“The VARIOPACK is a furrow press that attaches to the front of the tractor which crumbles clods of soil and creates a level surface,” says Docking. “Then the HELIODOR compact-disc levels and cultivates and the SOLITAIR air seeder comes behind and seeds, so all of the tillage and seeding operations are done in one single pass.”

"Going from stubble to a planted field in one pass at 8 mph or more isn’t something Ontario growers are used to seeing," says Docking, who thinks interest will be high because of the agronomic and economic advantages the LEMKEN one-pass system provides. “Planting timeframes can be tight,” he says. “If you’re able to prepare and plant a lot of acres by combining your operations into a single pass, you can take advantage of the best planting conditions and increase returns by reducing fuel and labour costs.”

Growers will have the opportunity to see the LEMKEN equipment in action with demonstrations throughout the day. A LEMKEN training specialist from Germany, Lena Skowronek, will be on hand to offer information and answer producers’ questions.

Also demonstrated will be the JUWEL 8 VT mounted and DIAMANT 11 VT semi-mounted ploughs, the KRISTALL tine cultivator and ZIRKON power harrow. “It should be an interesting event for any growers interested in innovative tillage and planting practices, says Docking.

The LEMKEN Field Day will be held at Jim Docking farm - 6693 26 Line, Staffa, Ontario from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on August 9th, with a rain date of August 10th. Lunch is provided and growers interested in attending can e-mail canada@lemken.com or call Jim (519) 274-4377 to RSVP or confirm the date in the event of poor weather.

Looking forward to seeing the latest innovation with this unit for speed planting...working the soil from start to planted finish in one pass across the field.
