Field equipment: Tests and services


In this department area/section area we test tillage equipment, seeders and planters, fertilisers and spreaders, forage equipment and harvesters as well as irrigation systems. All equipment is tested to international standards and regulations as well as to DLG-developed standards. Our modern, knowledge-based and practice-driven test and measuring methods are developed by our engineers. The DLG-APPROVED quality seal stands for impartially and independently corroborated product quality.

In addition to carrying out tests to DLG standards and approval tests to specific standards and regulations, the DLG Test Center also offers a wide range of services in the field of quality assessment or to customer-specific R&D requirements.
