AGCO, a leading global manufacturer and distributor of agricultural equipment, has announced its state of readiness to connect with customers on more than a transactional level at NAMPO 2023, one of the largest agricultural exhibitions in Southern Africa. The event, which takes place from 16 to 19 May 2023 at Bothaville in the Free State, will see AGCO showcase its latest products and innovations to visitors from all over the region.
AGCO’s display at NAMPO 2023 will include a range of breakthrough products supported by international specialists from various AGCO factories across the globe, where all AGCO products for Africa are made. Visitors will have the opportunity to connect with local AGCO experts responsible for various AGCO products on the stand.
Massey Ferguson products on display
The focus at NAMPO 2023 will be the unveiling of MF equipment new to the Southern African Development Community (SADC) region, including an upgraded self-propelled sprayer, its established hay tools and a brand-new MF combine harvester.
Both Low Horsepower (LHP) and High Horsepower (HHP) tractors will be on display, including a specialised orchard model. Under the LHP segment, the MF 4700, MF 5700 and the MF 6700 series will take centre stage. With this straightforward and dependable tractor range, Massey Ferguson has taken the concept of the sub-130 hp tractor and re-engineered it from the ground up to meet the needs of present and future farming.
Fendt products on display
“We will also have a full fleet of Fendt tractors and our most advanced Ideal combine harvester with significant upgrades to demonstrate the full benefits to the modern and technologically connected farmer who wants to get the best out of his equipment and add value to his farming operation,” says Dr. Dominik Reus, Managing Director, Africa at AGCO.
