DLG e.V. - Field operations

Field operations

 

 

The spectrum of DLG tests in the area of field operations ranges from seedbed preparation to harvesting. DLG engineers test almost all machines along the cultivation chain in arable farming and grassland operations – soil-working machinery, seed drills, mineral and universal fertilizer spreaders, slurry spreaders, combine harvesters, forage harvesters, mowers, hay and silage technology as well as balers.

Among the key areas defined by the DLG Test Commissions are criteria such as work quality, working rates, handling, fuel and tractive force requirements, as well as maintenance and safety, which can be adapted in modular fashion to the respective test. The tests are supplemented by an intensive practical on-farm test and evaluation by experienced practitioners.
