Väderstad widelining awarded the Agritechnica Innovation Award 2019

The tramlining planting system Väderstad Tempo WideLining that does not lower silage maize yields, has been awarded a Agritechnica Innovation Award 2019 silver medal.

WideLining is the worlds’ first tramlining system to spread liquid manure in a standing silage maize crop. Rather than having to shut off row units, WideLining automatically changes the row spacing on the planter, which keeps all row units planting at full capacity.

“We are very proud and glad to be awarded with a silver medal at the Agritechnica Innovation Award 2019,” says Väderstad SVP sales and marketing Mattias Hovnert. “Tempo WideLining is an important innovation to further develop our planter Tempo and give our customers another good tool on the machine to potentially increase the yield even more.”

The WideLining system will premier at Agritechnica in November 2019 and it will be available for the high-speed planter Tempo V 6-12 from the second half of 2020.
