Event Description

LEMKEN Tour Brings Heliodor Compact Disc to Farmers’ Fields

 

LEMKEN CANADA is touring southwestern Ontario’s agricultural heartland this month to offer unique side-by-side trials between farmers’ existing cultivators and LEMKEN’s industry-leading Heliodor compact disc harrow.

 

“Farmers have been asking about the Heliodor compact disc but they’re busy at this time of the year so we decided to bring our demos to them – right to their fields,” says Darryl Tam, service technician for LEMKEN CANADA INC. in Ontario.

 

Tam is travelling along rural roads within a 150 km radius of Stratford this month to meet farmers cultivating in their fields. When he pulls into the field Tam will demonstrate the Heliodor compact disc beside a farmer’s current machinery to showcase its innovative field benefits.  Some of the demonstrations are prearranged while others occur spontaneously.  If Tam sees a farmer cultivating he will pull in and offer to cultivate a few acres.

 

“We are pretty sure they will be impressed,” says Tam. “Not only by the demo but also by the fact we’ve helped them with their fieldwork.”

 

The Heliodor compact disc harrow can be used for shallow stubble cultivation on light and medium soils and for seedbed preparation on conventional and minimum tillage farms.

 

“The Heliodor is relatively new to Southern Ontario. We want farmers to know there are options for seedbed preparation other than traditional cultivation,” says Tam. “Seeing a piece of equipment work in their field beside their existing equipment is the best possible comparison.” 

 

The demonstrations have been held throughout May. The LEMKEN tour will continue until the end of the spring season. 

 

“There are so many options for farmers,” says Tam. “We know they have to make smart and safe decisions regarding which equipment they buy.”

 

Farmers can sign up for a field demonstration by calling Darryl Tam at 519-272-5263.

 

They can also call a LEMKEN dealer in their area to organize their in-field tour, or attend a neighbour’s demonstration.
