Proceed in field

Väderstad, one of the world’s leading companies in tillage, seeding and planting, is proud to announce that Proceed for the second year in a row has won the Farm Machine award, previously known as “Machine of the year” in the Seeding category. Proceed also won a silver medal for innovation at the ongoing SIMA exhibition in Paris, France.

In March 2022 Proceed was awarded the Farm Machine 2022 award in conjunction with the later cancelled Agritechnica 2022 exhibition. Now, Proceed has won it again, at the ongoing SIMA exhibition in Paris, France, Proceed was awarded the Farm Machine 2023 award in the Seeding category. An international jury of farm magazine journalists decided to give the prestigious prize to Proceed for the second year in a row.

Proceed also won a silver medal for best innovation at SIMA, an award which was presented by a jury of more than 20 French and international agricultural specialists.

– We are very excited that Proceed keeps getting more attention and recognition. Right now, we are performing field trials in many different countries across Europe, and even if we can’t share all the details just yet they show impressive results with stronger crops while reducing inputs, says Oskar Karlsson, Director Product Management for Planters at Väderstad.

Proceed is a technological leap for precision farming that can place a full range of seeds at the perfect depth with millimeter precision, enabling significant improvements in areas like yield levels, need for tillage, chemical treatment and the use of fertilisers.

In a few weeks’ time, Väderstad’s new documentary series about the Proceed will be released. In the series we will follow Proceed and the testing that right now takes place at many locations across Europe. We are very excited to welcome everyone to take a closer look at the development of Proceed, and to get an insight into how we assure the quality of our products before they end up in the hands of our customers.
