Independently proven performance: DLG Test Center to award 20 companies

33 certificates for successfully passed DLG Tests – awarding ceremony at the DLG stand during AGRITECHNICA 2015 – wide range of products

(DLG). During AGRITECHNICA 2015 the DLG Test Center Technology and Farm Inputs (German Agricultural Society, DLG) awarded 20 companies with 33 certificates in sum for successfully passed DLG Tests during an awarding ceremony at the DLG stand. In addition to the former DLG-SignumTest and DLG-FokusTest quality labels, the newly introduced labels “DLG APPROVED” were bestowed for the first time. Amongst the tests were also tractors, as the DLG Test Center relaunched its former comprehensive utility value tests for this type of machines. Chairman and general manager of the DLG Test Center, Hubertus Paetow and Dr. Hermann Buitkamp awarded the certificates to the companies. The range of products with independently proven quality and performance included vehicle technology and auxiliaries, grassland, cultivation and harvesting technology, solid and liquid manor technology as well as farm inputs and drying technology.

Most successful during the past two years since the last awarding ceremony were the companies Krone as well as CNH and Kuhn with their different subsidiaries, each awarded for four tested machines.
