REX 4 - 120 GT
Landini REX 4 -120 GT is a tractor that incorporates technology improvements specifically for the optimisation of processes in the vineyard. It is a machine projected towards the future and suitable for implementing a full and effective application of precision viticulture.
We note in particular the reduced width, the cabin with just 4 uprights for better visibility, front axle suspension; the various hydraulic pumps and the automatic steering function with ISOBus connections.
FENDT-AGCO ITALIA SPA
FENDT 200 VFP VARIO
The Ultra Guidance PSR Structure proposed by Fendt represents a significant step forward in terms of the ease of operation of the machine in the vineyard. This is a new feature for vineyard tractors and makes it possible to automatically guide the machine between the rows, with the proven GPS RTK technology and precise reference points thanks to the use of ultrasonic sensors.
The direct connection to the hydraulic steering system and the ability to work up to 20 km/h further enhance the machine.
This solution is suitable to implement the full and effective application of precision viticulture.
GOWAN ITALIA SRL
Ibisco ® is a new COS (chito-oligosaccharides)-OGA (oligogalacturonides)-based product proposed by Gowan Italy for the protection of vines from the onslaught of mildew. The product acts preventively as an "elicitor", activating the plant's natural defence system. The use of the product in the vineyard pest control plans is new and makes a concrete contribution to the reduction in the use of conventional fungicides.
