We went to Júlio de Castilhos, in the central region of the state of Rio Grande do Sul, to keep up with the beginning of the corn harvest at Behnen Farm. INDUTAR engineering carried out the technical delivery of the 13 rows MAGNA HIGHER corn head, 13 lines.
In this harvest, Airton and Alberi Behnen brothers bet on the corn crop and that is why they were looking for a product that would meet the expectations of the investments made. The MAGNA corn head was chosen to harvest more than 100 hectares destined to crop on the property. According to the farm manager, Alberi Behnen, the performance in the new Higher series was superior to what was expected:
“I noticed a high standard of agility and it doesn't acumulate straw, it's a de earing”.
According to Mr. Airton Behnen, owner of the visited area and currently resident Leopoldo de Bulhões in the state of Goiás, the decision to dedicate a special space for growing corn came last year, to complement the activities of the rural property, with the guarantee of a more fertile soil and effective in the short and long term.
“We plant corn due to crop rotation in the area and the expectation of good prices this year. And for the next harvest, we are planning to plant 100 ha in dry land,” said Airton.
About choosing MAGNA, he says:
“I went to visit the INDUTAR factory, found it very different from the ones I know and decided to buy it”.
The technical inspection is a moment when technicians have the opportunity to explain the machine's performance. On the occasion, we spoke with the Mechanical Engineer, Bruno Dalmagro, who highlighted MAGNA's differences, in addition to the product's technical file.
The new MAGNA HIGHER has perfected its header concept and optimizes the harvester's work.
“A bold and robust design, proven to reduce the volume of straw over 40%, it also has an oposite knives system that makes the work more aligned, providing a cleaner harvest and faster work speed” completes Bruno.
