In this rapidly changing industry, we’ve realized the importance of continually updating our approach to stay relevant in the market, and are committed to just that. VTF Sunrise excels in cover crop seeding. New for 2023, we have a Fendt Rogator 900 machine that we can utilize for fertilizer application as well as cover cropping. This machine allows us to get 700-800 acres completed in 1 day. It is equipped with camera sense technology that will self-operate the machine throughout each field of crops.
