Heading the machinery news on Quivogne’s SIMA stand is the HRP pasture regenerator harrow. Comprising two rows of scarified tine cutters, two rows of levelling tines, and two comb harrows, the HRP is available in working widths of 3m, 3.5m and 4m. Other news includes the option of a 1,000-litre stainless steel fertiliser hopper for fitting to the firm’s inter-row hoe (4-12 rows). The blower is powered from the pto, and pneumatic distribution is via two dosing devices.

Also on Quivogne’s stand is a new 3m-wide and 1.5t heavy front-mounted disc harrow. Still without a name, there is 720mm of spacing between the two rows of 560mm discs. A 4m rigid model is also coming.
