We need land to grow food, healthy soils to nourish crops and livestock, clean water on farms and farmers to make it all happen. Every farmer and contractor has its own daily challenge to achieve the highest possible return at the lowest cost. On a more global level, we know there is sufficient capacity to produce enough food to feed everyone adequately, despite the fact that the world population is predicted to increase to 9 billion by 2050. Instead of cultivating more and more land, we should be able to increase food productivity on existing farmland while at the same time lowering our footprint. That’s exactly the business that Agrifac is in! We want to contribute to the higher food need in a sustainable, brilliant simple way.
All Agrifac machinery, including the Condor, has been designed taking into account the “4E’s for growers” concept. Efficiency – Economy – Ergonomics and Ecological. We design and produce our machines for the most optimal working conditions for the operator, the entrepreneur, supplier and the environment. With “for growers” we refer to our target group, Agrifac customers like to grow for the future, developing and trying to grow their crops in most economical way, to make more profit.
Agrifac's history dates back to 1939, when the 'Central Bureau' started selling 'Platz' potato sprayers. In 1955 AMAC started to manufacture potato harvesters. In 1973 AMAC also started to manufacture sugar beet harvesters. In 2008, the AMAC brand name was changed into Agrifac.
We can increase yield on less productive farm land where we see huge yield gaps between current production levels and those possible with improved production practices, mechanization and precision farming. Combined with for instance our innovative sprayers being able to achieve more yield with less crop protection, to provide each plant what it needs, our business contributes to a brilliant simple solution in helping farmers to feed the world in a sustainable manner.
4e for Growers
To be able to do so, each Agrifac machine and application is developed in accordance to the “4e for growers” concept. This means we take efficiency, economy, ergonomics and ecology into account and let them be decisive in all we produce. This enables us to meet and exceed the customers’ needs, leading to a global innovative and technological advantage.
At Agrifac we are available for our customers. No matter where you are, we will support you on a local level according to our “Global presence, local support” principle.
