All over Europe, farmers rely on bed cultivation with separation to grow high-quality potato or vegetable crops in soils that are rich in stones or clods. Grimme has developed a comprehensive machine program with a new working width – for more power in a class of its own.
The benefits of the MAXI-Bed system
The MAXI-Bed system is suitable for potato and vegetable farming.
10 % more net acreage in vegetable farming with correspondingly increased harvests. Row spacing optimized in terms of crop farming can be expected to yield additional increases.
50 % more acreage output per hectare thanks to the 1.5 times wider bed.
Improved water balance thanks to wider beds and less space taken up by compressed tracks.
Significantly higher season performance than with conventional systems, resulting in reduced operating costs.
Quicker loading of transport vehicles during the harvest, resulting in a more efficient use in road traffic – additional power for your logistics operation.
Less bed crossing means less turning procedures. This reduces unproductive idle times during the harvest.
Increased uniformity of the crop thanks to less edge row effects at the track sides. These effects may appear particularly in vegetables and are caused by more light in the edge rows.
