In the South Eastern part of Denmark, at the island of Lolland, Øllingsøe manor is operating a specialized farming operation consisting of 650 hectars. In addition to the farm land, the property also consists of 165 hectars of forest land. The majority of the farmland is fertile soil with a high amount of clay.
Øllingsøe manor retired the plough and implemented min-till app. 7 years ago to boost efficiency while improving the soil structure as well. 40 percent of the cultivated area is utilized to grow winter wheat, the rest of the land is covered by spring barley, spinach for seed, green peas and sugar beets.
In winter 2021, Øllingsøe manor decided to invest in a new Multiva Optima T 1000 seedbed cultivator. The Optima T is utilized to prepare the seedbed of all the spring crops.
Before the manor decided on the Optima T, the market was thoroughly investigated. The aim was to invest in a powerful seedbed cultivator with low running costs and a long lifetime. Furthermore, the machine had to be able to perform well in min-till conditions with a larger degree of residues. The long frame of the Optima T was one of the turning points in the decision-making process.
The seedbed cultivator is praised for the simple and precise depth control, the even and stable working depth. Øllingsøe manor points out that the precision stays at the same level, even at high operating speeds. Øllingsøe manor had some specific requirements which Multiva was open to meet and made the purchase a very positive experience.
