The future of agtech: crop.zone and John Deere nominated for DLG-Agrifuture Concept 2023 award

crop.zone is a leading innovator in sustainable agtech solutions, and in collaboration with John Deere, the company is proud to announce their joint entry for the DLG Agrifuture Concept 2023 award.

Dual.Volt.24M, from crop.zone is a tried-and-tested system for electrical, systemic and herbicide-free plant care, and is capable of working over a width of 24 metres.

Shortlisted for award

The nomination to the shortlist of winners comes as a direct result of the technology innovation of this system, and the sustainable approach to agriculture, and confirms the potential of Dual.Volt.24M.

“We are excited about the future, and the ability to offer an even faster and improved solution for herbicide-free desiccation to professional farmers,” says Dirk Vandenhirtz, CEO of crop.zone.

“Through the collaboration with John Deere, one of the leading manufacturers of agricultural equipment, we were able to double the working width, enabling faster and more precise crop management.”

Special features

The special feature of Dual.Volt.24M is its innovative applicators, which can be adjusted for full-surface application, combined with the integrated, camera-controlled row application system. This ensures electrical, systemic and herbicide-free plant care over a working width of 24 metres without disturbing the soil.

This is supplemented by a fully integrated sprayer, allowing both application to a specific area in a single operation and combination treatments that are effective and sustainable.

The development of the new Dual.Volt.24M system, along with the nomination and already being shortlisted as a potential winner of the award, underscores the commitment of crop.zone and John Deere to revolutionising and leading the way towards a more sustainable Agtech sector.

Pilot series in 2024

In 2024, crop.zone will start active pilot series testing directly with professional farmers. Interested parties are welcome to contact crop.zone on +49 (0) 24 08 / 59 80 342, or simply stop by at Agritechnica in Hall 25.
