CLAAS, a leading manufacturer of agricultural machinery, has showcased its advanced green line forage harvesting machinery range including the DISCO 210 disc mower, CORTO 185 drum mower and LINER 370 rake for the Indian farmer, at recently concluded CII Agro Tech in Chandigarh. This product line is designed to provide reliability and efficiency to enable dairy farmers to achieve high quality silage in order to further enhance productivity and profitability.
The DISCO 210 disc mower features a direct drive to the disc bed that is designed to enable blockage free and efficient mowing of short crops such as Green Grass, Alfalfa, Berseem and Oats etc.
Similarly, the CORTO 185 drum mower is the ideal mower for use in crops such as Sorghum or Barley. Regular maintenance is kept as straightforward and includes the ability to replace the blades without the use of tools. For transport, the CORTO folds to within the width of the tractor, making the job safe and trouble-free for the farmer.
Having mowed the crop, the rugged and reliable LINER 370 rake ensures efficient and precise swathing of the grass, straw or cane trash.
Dr. Jens Oeding, CLAAS Regional President Asia, said, “India is the world’s largest milk producer, but the yield per animal is low and one of the primary reasons for this is poor feed quality. CLAAS Green Line machinery will help dairy and other agricultural operations to improve the quality and efficiency with which their forage crops are harvested. This will bring better efficiency and profitability to farmers in India”.
