Tobin’s First Planter to Russia


Assembly of Tobin No-Till’s first disc seeder in Russia is currently underway in Volgograd. Planting trials will commence immediately upon assembly completion.

The Tobin No-Till disc seeder has generated strong interest in Kazakhstan and Russia after Expos in both countries and first trials recently in Kazakhstan. Many farmers are watching these trials closely and see enormous potential for the seeder if trials are successful.

After a recent visit to Australia to see the machine in action, a group of 10 farmers want to see it operate with their own eyes on home soil. Potential for productivity improvements is very large and the Russian trials will be witnessed by many farmers from across Russia.

The Tobin machine has also generated strong interest from Government officials in Kazakhstan who are intent on bringing leading edge farming technologies such as the Tobin No-Till disc seeder into the country.
