Farm Diversity editor Victoria Galligan speaks to Kubota UK’s business development manager for agriculture Rob Edwards about the changes in farming technology which are improving efficiency, and the need for more education for both farmers and consumers when it comes to protecting the environment…
Kubota is a company which hails from Japan, where the brand goes back 140 years. Not only does the firm produce farming machinery, it also manufactures a ground care range as well as industrial engines and construction machinery.
Its motto is ‘For Earth, For Life’ and Rob says this is reflected in the way the company develops both its products and its support for farmers.
Kubota UK, a leading provider of groundcare, farm machinery and construction machinery, has announced it is set to introduce the supply of agriculture tractors and equipment to Colchester-based supplier HOSPLANT Sales.
HOSPLANT Sales, an exclusive Kubota dealership based in Peldon, near Colchester, was founded 15 years ago by Gary Mold and Adrian Mays who have more than 40 years’ combined experience selling construction and agricultural equipment throughout Essex, Suffolk and Norfolk. The dealership stocks the Kubota KX and the Kubota U Series of tracked excavators, and has now expanded its range to include the Kubota RTV range of utility vehicles and the L and M series of tractors up to 170hp.
