Winning Combo Makes for Dynamic Duo

Co-promotion ad with BASF featuring RoGator

Have you ever noticed how true winners seem to find each other and join forces to make things happen? This has been the case for two truly innovative products in Canada – the RoGator® and BASF’s HEAT® herbicide.

Our top-of-the-line self-propelled sprayer and BASF’s innovative new herbicide are enjoying a co-promotion across the western part of Canada. BASF is featuring the RoGator in all of its print advertising, positioning our machine as the applicator of choice for use when applying HEAT herbicide, which features a unique class of chemistry designed for burndown of targeted weeds and grasses for pre-seed and chemfallow applications.

In the first quarter of 2011, BASF held a contest across western Canada in which growers signed up in record numbers to win a one-year lease on a RoGator 1194 self-propelled sprayer and a case of HEAT herbicide.

The prize winner was chosen in April: Gordie Mueller of Humboldt, Saskatchewan, who manages a 3,500-acre farming operation that grows canola, peas, wheat, oats, barley and lentils. As the winner, Mueller gets to use a 1194 Self-Propelled RoGator  for one year or 200 hours – whichever comes first, in addition to winning enough BASF HEAT herbicide and MERGE® to treat 640 acres. The total value of the prize is more than $54,000.

Upon winning, Mueller said the prize was a “pretty big shock!” He even added that he was intending to switch to a high-clearance sprayer next year, so this win was an absolutely perfect fit for him.

The RoGator is a common sight across the prairies of Canada, providing application of a wide variety of fertilizers and crop-protection products for wheat, canola and other crops common to that country. With large tracts of land to cover – often when racing the clock to make timely applications in a short timeframe – the RoGator is a natural choice for Canadian farmers and professional applicators alike.

Paired together, the RoGator and HEAT herbicide are simply unbeatable. Check out http://www.applylikeapro.com/AboutUs/Testimonials/ to see what customers are saying about the RoGator and www.agsolutions.ca/heat on BASF’s HEAT Herbicide.

Be on the look out for our next co-promotion. In the meantime – what are some of the winning combinations you’ve put together with your AGCO machines?

Valtra ARM – Now With A Colour Display

ARM gets a colour display

Valtra’s T Series models with the new SCR engines now come with a colour display on the driver’s armrest. The display has separate day and night settings. The daytime setting allows the information to be viewed even in bright sunlight, whereas at night the display is not too bright for the eyes.

The screen now has separate daytime and nighttime settings.

All power at your fingertips

Valtra’s patented ARM armrest also has other new features. The joystick on the armrest can now be used to control the front or rear hydraulics, or both. The PTO and 4WD switches are now also on the armrest. In addition, it is now possible to make changes to programmes stored in the U-Pilot Headland Management System when the tractor is standing still.

Have you already tried the new Valtra ARM armrest?
