"Congratulations to Dresdner Vorgebirgs Agrar AG on its new Fendt Rogator 655," says Andreas Loewel, Head of Fendt Sales Germany. "With Fendt's self-driving model, the 3,000-hectare farm has opted for a machine that is particularly appealing to large farms and contractors because of its high power and overall machine efficiency. The Rogator 600 is marked by its unique framework design, advanced boom height guidance system and enhanced technology and lane guidance solutions. The Fendt self-driving sprayer features the same familiar and proven Fendt operating concept as Fendt tractors and the Fendt Katana."


Since the beginning of 2018, Fendt's plant protection products have been produced at the AGCO plant in Hohenmölsen. The Fendt forage harvester Katana has been assembled here since 2012, as well as thin and thick sheet parts for Fendt tractors and combine harvesters.

"The expansion to include Plant Protection Solutions at the AGCO site in Hohenmölsen will bring a healthy workload and better use of our production resources," says Dr Thomas Schneiderheinze, Managing Director of AGCO Hohenmölsen GmbH.
