The autonomous platforms from AgXeed are described by Amazone as an ideal match to its product range. The combination of minimal ground pressure, optimised weight distribution and flexible mounting zones open up new possibilities for constructing intelligent arable farming solutions, is the message.

The tracked AgBot has already been used successfully in conjunction with Amazone cultivation and seeding equipment. In addition to cultivation and seeding, the new four-wheeled AgBot can also be used with Schmotzer (part of the Amazone Group) hoes for mechanical weed control.

In addition, the FTender universal front hopper system for seed and fertiliser along with the FT-P for crop protection agents and liquid fertilisers, can also be combined with a range of Amazone machinery for specific applications. Various sensor systems constantly monitor and analyse the work done.

Amazone is not alone in partnering with AgXeed. Last year, Claas entered into a cooperative venture with the Dutch comp[any and acquired a minority shareholding.
