These photos were sent to me by Hannu Niskanen at Valtra. He
had asked me to remove a leaked Valtra photo posted earlier
at farmphoto of a Valtra prototype. I had no problems doing
this (see the FAQ) regardless of whether he sent these new
photos but I did think it was rather sporting of him,
anyway. He also sent me a story about the photos that I
haven't posted in full because I thought it was a little
long...

==================

24 h non-stop sowing test, seed and fertiliser combined
Location: Gårdskulla Gård, about 50 km west of Helsinki in
south-west Finland.
Time: 25.04.2002 12.00 - 26.04.2002 12.00
Organisers: TTS Institute, Väderstad-Verken Ab, Sweden,
Valtra Inc.

A unique record result in single-pass combined seeding and
fertilising was achieved in a test organised by TTS
Institute (Research Institute for Work Efficiency) at
Gårdskulla farm in south-west Finland, which is specialised
in growing cereals. The drill used in the trial was a
Väderstad Rapid A 600 C combined seed and fertiliser drill
powered by a Valtra S 260 tractor equipped with dual wheels
all round. The 24 h non-stop trial including filling the
hoppers, changing the seed varieties and moving between the
fields ended with a chequered flag waved by World Rally
Champion and neighbouring farmer Marcus Grönholm at 12.00 on
Friday, 26th April.

Hi 2-d,

I don't know anything about these photos other than what was
sent to me. If you'd like the email address of the guy from
whence they came I'd be happy to pass it on via email...

What is the big deal about running for 24 hours. Is that
some kind of a novelty in Finland?
