Rates go down to push up pasture renewal
Posted by Dianne Bisdee on 5 September 2014
There’s never been a better time than this spring to take advantage of all the benefits of no-till pasture renewal, thanks to a special finance offer from one of New Zealand’s leading seed drill manufacturers.
For a limited time Duncan Ag has extended payment terms and cut interest rates on its drills to 2.9 per cent to make it easier for farmers within New Zealand to gear up with the best equipment for spring sowing.
That means even the newest Renovator drill, the Renovator TFD, is now available for a third down, with the balance due in two payments over the following 24 months, the company says.
“Pastures in some parts of the country – particularly Northland – have taken a beating this season, so a lot of farmers are already looking to do more spring repair and restoration work on their paddocks than they normally would at this time of the year,” says Duncan Ag general manager Craig McIsaac.
“We’re keen to support them in getting their grass factories back up to full speed. We also want to put the best no-till technology within easy reach of farmers nationwide, with all the associated benefits that brings in terms of improved soil health, reduced soil erosion and increased soil moisture retention.
“These days more and more farmers are realising the importance of protecting their soils as their most valuable asset, and no-till farming is becoming the rule rather than the exception for anyone who wants to leave their ground in better shape than they found it.”
There are 10 core models in the Duncan Ag seed drill range which qualify for the spring finance offer, including the just-released Renovator TFD, which offers enhanced penetration in variable ground conditions thanks to rotating beams that enable individualised setting of the tine ranks.
