ROSTOK-HOLDING to Host a Tillage Machinery Test Drive

“ROSTOK-HOLDING” group will host a test drive of tillage machinery supplied from the world’s leading producers, including John Deere, Case IH, Horsh, Quivogne, Kuhn, on its land in Novhorod-Siverskii town, Chernihiv region. This idea arose on the back of an increase in land bank of the group and stems from the necessity to upgrade the existing fleet of tillage machinery.


Traditionally the machinery will be evaluated by a special committee of the group as well as by independent experts of the Ukrainian research institute of forecasting and testing equipment and technologies for agriculture named after L. Pohorilii.  The following basic technical indicators will be taken into account: productivity (hectare/hour), fuel consumption (litres/hectare), tillage depth (centimetres), quality of tillage, maintenance cost as well as cost of the machinery.

The test drive will take place on July 10, 2014 on the territory of Chernihiv cluster of the group at the address: Chernihiv region, Novhorod-Siverskii district, Novhorod-Siverskii town.

“Ukrainian Farmer” magazine serves as a General Media Partner of the event.

Just to recap, in 2013 on its land in Sumy region “ROSTOK-HOLDING” group hosted competition of harvesters supplied from the world’s leading producers, including John Deere, Claas, Case, Challenger, and New Holland, and competition of tractors supplied from the world’s leading producers, including John Deere, Claas, Case, and Challenger.
