Roscommon-based Acres machinery has developed the
Supercrop1, a patent-pending system focused on the wilting
process. The Supercrop system was designed to reduce time and
costs substantially while helping to increase the nutritional value
from crops. Supercrop1 eliminates the need for three separate
machines, replacing the rake, conditioner and tedder, according to
the company.
Not only does it save machinery costs, more importantly, it helps
reduce the drying time and increases the quality and consistency
of the crop by being able to rake and condition in one pass,
according to Acres. This can knock at least one day o the harvest
time, which is very important to maintain a good nutritional value
in your fodder. The conditioned swath is far better for making
better formed bales. Having just one machine means you now only
require one tractor and one operator, reducing both labour and
fuel by up to 30 per cent. It is also very flexible, with a rear tedder
on board in case the crop needs to be spread out again due to
rain. The Supercrop1 is more compact than a standard rake on its
own, making it very manoeuverable while transporting on the road.
Acres machinery is an innovative, award-winning, family engineering
company based in the west of Ireland. It designs, builds and tests
its machines in some of the toughest crop conditions in the world.
With bad weather, heavy crops and rough terrain, this machinery
is tested to the limits. Acres says it uses its family's generations of
farming knowledge and its engineering expertise to bring the most
innovative systems to the agricultural market.
