New potato planters from AVR

AVR has been fully operational during the COVID 19 crisis and this month plan to introduce three new Ceres planters.


The Ceres 440 is based on the Ceres 400 and is a four-row mounted planter that is available hydraulically or mechanically. The Ceres 440, AVR has ISOBUS control and a row-independent hydraulic drive.

A wide bunker also ensures smooth loading.

Other functions are section control (TC-SC) and variable planting or fertilizing using task cards (TC-GEO). Once all data has been uploaded to the GPS system, the AVR Ceres takes care of the desired dosing quantities provided by the GPS system.

Several versions of the Ceres 440 are available: a 1.5 tons fixed bunker or a 1.9 tons tipping bunker (4×75), with an optional ridging hood and/or anti-erosion kit.  AVR can also supply a powdering unit, granular applicator and spray system.

The digital platform AVR Connect (previously known from the AVR Puma 4.0 harvester) is now also available on the Ceres 440 planter. This means that from now on, planting and harvesting can be geared to one another even more in the precision farming chain.

Moreover, AVR will continue investing in this technology and developing it further. Existing features will be expanded and new functions will be added. AVR is also planning to apply this technology to other machine types.
