NFM Magazine issue 6, February 2014 will be on-sale February 24.

NFM kicks off the new year with heaps of reviews, an exclusive John Deere giveaway, a new dealer section and three insightful features.

Until now, Australia has contributed significantly to agriculture innovation and research, but we’re a small market, prone to bigger dollars elsewhere. Education and research facilities are struggling at a time when high levels of education are critical to productivity.

This month Anna Game-Lopata takes an in-depth look at agriculture education and strategies to stem the decline.

Not so humble, the burgeoning hay industry is thriving on the back of innovative technology and equipment. Col Jackson reports on a multi-billion dollar business with the scope to support the boom and busts of both drought and flooding rain.

Also this month NewFarmMachinery launches an exciting new dealer profile section starting with KV Equipment in Epsom, Victoria where locals Matt Peeler and Stephen Laird are rapidly growing their PFG franchise.

A huge swag of tests this month:

  • Versatile 620 tractor
  • Volkswagen Amarok Highline TDI ute
  • Combilift’s SC3 T straddle carrier
  • Hardi self-propelled Saritor 2 5500 sprayer
  • Yamaha’s agile 450 Grizzly ATV
  • Taege 6M cultivator

Farm machinery guru Dr Graeme Quick offers his valuable suggestions on how to predict your system’s work capabilities and relates one cheeky operator’s novel way to fix a slipping clutch in 1945.

Our comprehensive buyers’ guide section will this month comprise 24 pages of specifications for all the top brands of sprayers on the market.

And make sure you don’t miss your chance to win a John Deere 6100D ROPS Utility! The competition giveaway for NFM readers kicked off February 6 and will continue until August.
