Yara Danmark A/S, Organic fertiliser for organic farming keyboard_arrow_down
YaraSuna BIO is the name of Yara’s range of fertilised products for organic crop farming. The fertilisers are recirculated organic manure and fertilisation products that are prepared on the basis of meat and bone meal and also include chicken manure, oat shells and wood vinasse. YaraSuna BIO fertilisers are subject to Yara’s strict quality standards as regards both nutrient content and physical properties.
Yara’s new organic fertilizer – YaraSuna BIO 9-3-1 – is based on meat and bone meal, chicken manure, oat husks and vinasse. This fertilizer has been approved for ecological farming and the nitrogen effect is anticipated as being relatively high. This new fertilizer is subject to Yara’s quality standards for nutrition content and physical properties.
Yara Danmark A/S, Green fertiliser keyboard_arrow_down
Green fertiliser is nitrate-based, mineral fertiliser that features exactly the same chemical and physical composition as fertiliser produced using fossil fuels (natural gas, coal, oil), but with a much lower carbon footprint because they are manufactured using electricity from sustainable sources (hydropower, wind and solar). This means that green fertiliser is a fossil-free, effective and simple way to make food production more climate friendly.
It is innovative to produce, market and price a commercial fertilizer on the Danish market where the nitrogen content is produced with the aid of power gained from solar, wind or hydro energy instead of the traditional natural gas. The climate effect from this fertilizer will be significantly lower than that of traditional nitrogen fertilizers.
NEW IN EUROPE, SEGES Innovation P/S, Dynamic fertilisation plan with CropManager, which calculates the absolute requirement for N-fertiliser in winter wheat keyboard_arrow_down
In precision agriculture, the distribution of N-fertiliser is often based on biomass. CropManager now offers a more dynamic fertilisation plan, which calculates the absolute requirement for N-fertiliser in winter wheat. This results in a reduced risk of under- or over-fertilising with nitrogen.
The calculation of the current residual need for Nitrogen (N) in winter wheat (stage 34–45) is performed before the final fertilisation in May, and it takes into account the field’s total biomass index, current nitrogen and crop prices, and the expected yield.
CropManager is a dynamic fertilizer plan that calculates the absolute demand for N-fertilizer in winter wheat, via satellite photographs, instead of norm value application (i.e., crop requirements, ensuing crop effect, soil types, etc.). This has an explanation degree (the model’s ability to signify the plant’s nitrogen demand) of 28% which must be said as being relatively low. This new dynamic fertilizer plan via CropManager the explanation degree rises to 56%. This is double the degree attained via norm value applicatiojn. This new plan improvement means that the user can ensure that the correct amount of fertilizer is available for the plants. This is beneficial for the farm economy, the environment and the climate.
Main category: Tractors and combine harvesters
Danish Agro Machinery A/S, CLAAS CORIO STUBBLE CRACKER – harvesting and crushing of corn stubble in a single work process keyboard_arrow_down
The new STUBBLE CRACKER for the CORIO 8-row corn heads makes it possible to crush the corn stubble as a part of the harvesting process. The purpose is to minimise the appearance of corn borers in next year’s corn crops and to facilitate mulching of the stubble.
The STUBBLE CRACKER is fully integrated into the corn head and features a rotating rotor with two specially designed flails mounted on each row. In addition, the transmission concept has been designed to ensure that the stubble cracker does not limit the capacity of the corn head.
Stubble Cracker is an innovative solution for trimming maize stubble before the maize chopper and harvesting trucks make tracks in the fields. The fact that the track ratio is 30-50% in a maize field means that it is best to trim the stubble during maize harvesting.
Danish Agro Machinery A/S, Sustainable green electric compact tractor from Farmtrac. The Farmtrac 25 G is fully electric – but performs like a 25 hp diesel tractor. Fully electric – zero emissions – green energy – low operating costs keyboard_arrow_down
The Farmtrac FT 25G electric compact tractor is the first authentic, batch-produced electric compact tractor for the agricultural, municipal and park/garden sectors.
Zero emissions – minimal noise and vibrations – minimal maintenance – supplied with a 300 AK Lithium battery and internal 240 volt charging system. 540/540E PTO rear and Mid PTO – 3-gear transmission – 4 WD – electric shift between forward and reverse operation 4–6 hours’ operation on a single charge.

Main category: Crop management
Sukup Europe A/S, Mixer for flat storage keyboard_arrow_down
Automatic mixing system for flat storage installations to increase the circulation of air, reduce wet “spots” and cut the risk of condensation forming when drying grain and seeds. Available in widths of up to 12 metres and with max. 4 mixer worms. The control system features multiple pre-programmed mixing patterns that ensure efficient mixing.
1 star has been awarded for this opportunity to select from several different stirring patterns via this automatic control system.
Geoteam A/S, Flow meter for measuring water and protein in grain stored in silos or combined harvesters. keyboard_arrow_down
The stationary GrainSense Flow Analyzer can be fitted to a grain intake or a combined harvester. It provides an outstanding overview of the quality because it measures large volumes continuously during the work, thus eliminating the need for manual sampling.
The flow meter allows you to measure protein and moisture content automatically while harvesting, refining and storing the grain, and it takes photos of green and crushed grain to help you make data-based decisions when handling you grain.
The GrainSense Flow Analyser is awarded 2 stars for the possibility of permanent installation at grain intakes or on the combine harvester. This ensures quality data due to continuous readings.
NEW IN EUROPE, Jema Agro A/S, Self-cleaning casing for cup elevator keyboard_arrow_down
This self-cleaning casing can be purchased with a cup elevator – where it is installed in the elevator base – or it can be fitted to an existing cup elevator at the customer’s premises. The casing ensures that the cup elevator collects and carries up to 100% of the material. This means that where a fair amount of product is spilled around the base of set-ups without a casing, installing the casing will help produce a completely self-cleaning effect. Adding the casing will thus significantly reduce the amount of work to clean up spilled product from around the base of the cup elevator.
Bucket elevators have typically a hollow in the base that requires emptying during cleaning operations. JEMA has developed a shroud for new and existing JEMA elevators which are thus self-cleaning. This New Product has been awarded 3 stars and classified as NEW IN EUROPE.
Main category: Livestock equipment
Skiold A/S, SKIOLD Airfilter System keyboard_arrow_down
The SKIOLD AirFilter system is a unique solution that ensures greater operational reliability in the stalls. The use of filter ventilation prevents viruses from entering areas of high livestock density. The SKIOLD AirFilter filters up to 95% of viruses and bacteria out of the incoming air. In addition, it helps reduce the risk of re-infection by up to 80%.
These are air filters which reduce the risk of re-infection in pig sties. The filters have no moveable parts and can be installed in both new and existing sties.
Staldmæglerne A/S, BACTIPOWER keyboard_arrow_down
BACTIPOWER is an active diffusion system designed to prevent certain illnesses, such as Digital Dermatitis, in cattle stalls. Together with a ventilator (Cyclon), the system spreads good, active bacteria/probiotics via the ventilation system to all areas of the stalls in a simple, efficient and uniform manner. Spreading positive bacteria hinders the development of bacteria that can cause illness in cattle stalls.
This system functions with active diffusion. The active agent – in this case – Probiotika, is spread with the ventilation around the livestock housing in a simple, efficient and uniform manner. Probiotika is known from the human medicinal world and is applied for the prevention/curing of certain diseases. In this case it is specifically applied for Digital Dermatitis.
With the aid of the spread Probiotika, a positive ecosystem is attained in the livestock housing which reduces the growth of Treponemes bacteria and thus prevents Digital Dermatitis. The active agent is spread via the company’s wellknown Cyclone ventilators. The Probiotika is added in powder form via a tube close to the ventilator wings.
NEW IN DENMARK, Lely Nordic A/S, Lely Sphere – Reduction of ammonia evaporation from cattle stalls keyboard_arrow_down
Lely Sphere is an environmental technology solution designed to reduce ammonia emissions in cattle stalls. The reduction is achieved by separating urine from manure, and by ventilating across the surface of the urine, which is where most evaporation occurs.
The ventilation is achieved by generating negative pressure in the manure duct and immediately above the slits, such that the manure gases are drawn into a scrubber, thus allowing the conversion of potential ammonia vapour into recirculated nitrogen fertiliser.
This is an environmental technology solution for the reduction of ammonia emission in cattle housing. This system consists of an entirely new combination of known components.
In the cattle housing, the openings in the traditional concrete slotted flooring are closed off with separation strips with stainless-steel drainage openings. This ensures separation of the manure and urine on the flooring.
The urine flows via the stainless-steel drainage down to the drainage channel and the solid manure remains on the floor surface. The flooring is cleared with the Lely Collector which sucks the manure up and delivers it to a separate dump. One thus attains a liquid part containing a great deal of Kali and a solid part with a major amount of the manure’s phosphorus content.
Finally, a floor extraction is installed in the slurry channels. The air is extracted to an outdoor air purifier. This removes the ammonia in the air with sulphuric or nitric liquid.
The resulting liquid has a high ammonia content and can be collected and applied as liquid nitrogen fertilizer. This is an add-on system which is relatively simple to install in existing livestock housing with slotted flooring and deep slurry channels.

MGM Boilers ApS, Wood pellet boiler: MGM Smart keyboard_arrow_down
MGM Smart is a clean, modern boiler.
This new boiler cleaning system involves significant improvements. It only has one electric motor for the cleaning of fire tubes and burner heads and greatly improves cleaning in comparison to the former system. The MGM system operates with the electric motor’s activation of a number of springs which, when released, give a mechanical jolt to the parts that are to be cleaned for dust and soot. This removes the ash from both the fire tubes and the grid on the burner head. This new system greatly reduces manual cleaning requirements. In addition, this cleaning system has a simpler mechanical construction than that of earlier boiler cleaning systems.
Seluxit, Seluxit EMS – Simple and efficient energy control keyboard_arrow_down
The purpose of Seluxit EMS is to allow users to achieve energy savings of up to 30%. Total energy consumption is visualised, and secondary sensors or data from existing machines can be used to bring individual areas into the visualisation. These data are then used to perform automations which, for instance, can involve executing a given process when energy prices are at their lowest or on the basis of weather data. What is more, the solution can also forecast consumption, generate reports and issue alarms if energy consumption exceeds expectations.
Seluxit EMS – easy and efficient power control – is an innovative IT-tool for monitoring and analysis of the power consumption of the individual property. The purpose of this IT-tool is to provide the user with hour-by-hour data collated from www.eloverblik.dk. This monitoring and subsequent analysis will contribute to reduction of the power consumption. In addition, the IT system can collate and monitor consumption data from remote secondary meters with integrated contacts in the property’s electric installations. The IT system can analyze data from the connected meters and thus optimize power consumption data regarding the applied amount of power. The contacts in the secondary meters can be remote controlled from the IT system. This function can be applied to move power consumption from various periods of the day to periods with lower power costs.
In addition, alarm points can be recorded so that the user is warned that sudden power increases occur in any period other than the anticipated consumption. The user can also compare periods with former comparative periods. This IT tool can be applied by both the individual property and by eventual external advisors.

Food & Bio Cluster Denmark, Hecto Drone - Fully automatic drone for spraying and data collection keyboard_arrow_down
The Peregrine Agra is a new, multipurpose drone for the agricultural sector. The drone is designed to accept various tools, and is launched with a data collection unit that enables automatic preparation of NDVI and weed maps. The drone can lift 25 kg and remain airborne for up to 10 hours.
No experience with flying drones is required to operate the system, because the drone can be controlled centrally from a mobile phone or computer, and otherwise flies and finds its way automatically. The drone is available with a dock for automatic refuelling. A spraying module is currently in development.
The new drone, Peregrine Agra, from Hecto Drone has a flight time of up to 10 hours and has a lift capacity of up to 25 kilograms. This is possible due to the automatic tanking system which fills liquid fuel to the drone whenever this is required. Similar systems are known from electricity powered drones, but these do not have the same high lifting capacity in comparison to prices.
In addition, the Hecto Drone has attained the essential permissions from the authorities so that it may fly autonomic, This obviates the requirement for a certified pilot’s control.
DLG, Natural vitamin E supplement, easily digested, which can boost plasma vitamin E levels in calves during and after weaning. keyboard_arrow_down
E-Force is a new feed supplement for calves, designed for use in the stressful period around weaning. The supplement contains natural vitamin E, which is more readily digestible. In order to protect this fragile form of vitamin E, it is encased in lecithin. Studies have shown that calves which have taken E-Force displayed a significantly higher plasma vitamin E level and reduced stress indicators.
During the weaning stage, the calf’s E-vitamin status is often low due to the fact that gains from synthetic E-vitamin in calf starter is lower than that obtained from natural E-vitamin in milk. E-vitamin additives for calves are recognized for improving immune response and thus the health status of the calves. In tests, natural E-vitamin in alcohol form has shown to gain the highest biological activity. However, feeding with E-vitamin in alcohol form presented a challenge as it can be more vulnerable to oxidization and damage if the special foodstuff is produced at high temperatures during pelletizing. The entirely new feature of E-force is that, for the first time, it has been successful to produce a pill with natural E-vitamin in an alcohol form that simultaneously contains the essential minerals and vitamins. Stability is ensured by the product containing lecithin plus anti-oxidants.

At Agromek, Danish Agro Machinery will be presenting a completely new wheel loader – the TORION 1611. The machine is part of a set of three new models. Features of the new TORION 1611 include even stronger breakout force, greater hydraulic output and a more powerful engine. The new loader also has a newly designed lifting arm, where two previous kinematics have now been consolidated in a single arm.
This product has been awarded one star. The Z-kinamatic has now received an electronic control of parallel driving that can be on/off coupled for compensation of the integrated geometry which is normal in the Z-kinamatic.
Woodconstruction A/S, CLT elements and bearing structures in glulam for design and build contracts for stalls and halls. keyboard_arrow_down
Concept construction in CLT (Cross-Laminated-Timber) and glulam is set to make construction in the Danish agricultural sector significantly greener and climate-friendlier. CLT and glulam can be used to replace steel structures and concrete elements – and even some roof structures – and feature construction-technical properties that are just as good as those of concrete and steel. In some cases, even better. The prefabricated CLT elements and glulam modules can be delivered 10–12 weeks after the finished/approved drawing material has been received, and construction of the basic wooden building frame often takes just 6–10 working days.
Concept construction in CLT (Cross laminated timber and laminated wood. This new concept can replace the application of steel construction, concrete elements and roof construction in many farm buildings.
CLT cab supplied as massive wall elements for both outer walls and interior division walls which are complete exterior and interior overfalls. They are also available as roof elements that can be equipped with, e.g., roofing felt. Wood wall elements are much easier to work with if, e.g., an extra door or window is to be installed.
The installation of fittings is also much easier. Massive timber elements and laminated wood constructions will often have better fire hazard qualities than comparative buildings with steel construction.
In addition to prefabricated elements ensuring faster building time, the CLT elements are more climate positive than traditional steel or concrete elements. Simultaneously, CO2 is stored in the wood and therefore ensures a positive Carbon Footprint throughout the lifetime of the buildings.
NEW IN EUROPE, Thyregod A/S, TIM brake kit keyboard_arrow_down
To provide customers with the option to buy a modern trailer with single brakes now, and then to update to a different type of brake or a combi-brake solution, all TIM trailers will be supplied as standard as from 2023 with a range of brackets to allow the retrofitting of an extra brake circuit – without the need to make modifications, drill new holes or weld brackets, etc. to the trailer. As such, it will be possible to maintain the original quality and surface treatment of the chassis, while ensuring compliance with future legislation and/or helping to improve the resale price.
From 2025, trailer vehicles with single circuit hydraulic brakes cannot be towed by new tractors. This is a considerable problem which is rarely taken seriously. Therefore, many buyers continue to order the old types of brake instead of double circuit brakes. Thyregod´s preparation kit facilitates the later update of the brakes to double circuit brakes.
