New Holland wins two silver medals from Agritechnica

New Holland has announced that it has won two silver medals from Agritechnica for innovation of combine harvesters for better farming practices in maize fields

The Opti-Speed strawwalker system improves productivity by up to 10 per cent and the Cornrower header combines in field efficiency for better farming practices.

Carlo Lambro, brand president of New Holland Agriculture, said, “New Holland is committed to developing innovations which bring practical benefits to the world’s farmers and contractors.

“Furthermore we, together with the world’s farmers, have the great responsibility of maximising sustainable food and energy production.

The Opti-Speed strawwalker technology is exclusively available on the CX7000 and CX8000 Elevation range of super conventional combines. The range, which includes the world’s most powerful strawwalker machine, producing up to 490hp, is used by large-

scale farmers and contractors, the company said.

The operator can select from four pre-set crops, and the Opti-Speed system autonomously modifies the strawwalker speed. When driving uphill, the strawwalker speed reduces to decrease the transport speed of the straw over the strawwalkers and when

driving downhill, strawwalker speed is increased to prevent blockages. Moreover, in flat fields, this system is beneficial for maize harvesting thanks to slower strawwalker speeds, New Holland added.

The Cornrower header helps to improve farming productivity and sustainability. The fully integrated Cornrower system can be fitted to conventional maize headers, and it produces uniform windrows of finely chopped maize stover. This fine chop is said to

increase bale density by up to 15 per cent.

This one pass system reportedly reduces operations’ fuel consumption as well as limiting in field compaction.
