With orders for Agrowdrill parts already flowing, Davimac believes good rainfall has set up a big winter planting season ahead
With the near-record 2020-21 harvest complete, farmers have set their sights on the upcoming winter sowing season.
The Australian Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment (ABARES) and Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) suggest current generous rainfall figures will assist soil preparation ahead of 2021 winter crop planting.
And while the long drought is nowhere near over, prospects are good for another good winter harvest, according to the BOM’s long-term rainfall forecast.
Davimac Group’s own data reflects the dramatic change in circumstances for many Australian farmers. Spare parts made up an uncommonly large portion of total sales in 2018-19, reflecting many farmers’ need to repair and renovate existing machinery. By comparison, the current year to date has seen spare parts drop to below average levels, a clear result of widespread rainfall and government intervention driving farmer confidence.
“We’re already getting parts orders for our Agrowdrills coming through ahead of winter sowing,” says Davimac Group Parts Coordinator Amanda Staines. “Prep is well and truly under way and many farmers know that a successful sowing season starts well before the seed touches the soil.”
Davimac Group sells its Australian-made farm implements under the Agrowplow brand and produces a wide range of seed drills and ploughs suited to large and small farming operations.
