John Deere’s flagship X9 combine harvester will be on show for visitors to see at this month’s Cereals event – alongside a range of other new products.

The X9 1100 combine – which harvest 100 tonnes of wheat per hour with less than 1% grain loss – will be featured on the company’s stand (525) on 30 June and 1 July at Boothby Graffoe, Lincolnshire.

John Deere says the X9 represents the next level of harvesting performance to help larger farmers achieve more tonnes per hour and more hectares per day, specifically in tough, high yielding, wet conditions.

In the lead up to this year’s show, the new X9 Series combines were recognised in the Robotics category of the 2021 CES Innovation Awards. This was the second straight year John Deere has received such an award, after the 8RX tractor in 2020.

The award recognises outstanding product design and engineering in technology products. The X9 Series combine also received a 2021 AE50 Award for innovations that improve production agriculture.

Other machines making their Cereals debut include the 7R 350 and 8RX four-track tractors. The R740i trailed sprayer and Mazzotti MAF 4080 self-propelled sprayer with 36m boom can be seen in the Sprays & Sprayers demonstration arena.

The new top of the range 7R 350 tractor develops up to 388hp. The 8RX has proved to be popular with UK farmers and contractors, who have recognised and experienced its successful combination of soil preservation with greater productivity.

Built in a compact frame for easy manoeuvrability, the 8RX Series was developed with the aim of maximising soil protection without compromising tractor performance.

Precision and intelligent technology are incorporated in the mid-range R740i trailed sprayer. This 4000-litre capacity machine offers boom widths from 18 to 30m, with a new system to reduce filling times, improve spray application and increase accuracy.
