Awards for Excellence ‘Acknowledging products and innovation that make a difference’
Valtra and Amazone were the two recipients of this year’s Farmers Guide ‘Awards for Excellence’ presented at a ceremony held near Ipswich, Suffolk in mid-March. The Awards, which include ‘Machinery’ and ‘Arable’ categories, were created by Farmers Guide to specifically highlight excellence within the industry, with the winners chosen by the magazine’s editorial team. This year, the awards were presented to Valtra for its A4-series tractor and Amazone for its WindControl device for fertiliser spreading. Also in attendance and supporting the two manufacturers were regional main dealers Chandlers, Crawfords, Pecks, Suffolk Agri Centre and TNS.
