Agrowplow were an early supporter of the Toulon project. This project is the product of the Central West Catchment Authorities 'Farming Systems Course' and was awarded funding for innovation in farming. The project addresses environmental concerns whilst maintaining a productive, viable farming enterprise.
One key aspect of the project relies on Agrowplow's AD Hybrid Agrowdrill. This innovative disc drill has been designed to be pulled by a 200hp electric Mitsubishi Triton 4x4 specially converted for the task. In what is believed to be a world first 'Zero Emission sowing' operation, crops will be sown using an electric 4x4 charged with renewable 'Green Power'.
"We are fortunate that Agrowplow are a regional Australian business with full engineering design capabilities and a business philosophy based on sustainable soil management. Agrowplow's involvement has given us access to leading sowing technology and design advice." - Michael and Therese Inwood, Toulon.
When used for 'Pasture Cropping' and 'No kill cropping' the AD Hybrid Agrowdrill will allow best environmental practice in 'zero till' sowing.
