We have been developing pioneering electronics for agricultural machinery for over ten years. Our solutions are created in close cooperation with the people who use them on a daily basis – farmers and contract farmers all over the world. This is what allows us to provide you with precisely the solutions that you need to farm your fields successfully.
In 2009, we established a consortium with other experts under the CCI umbrella. Our goal is to drive decisive advances in the ISOBUS standard for agricultural machinery, which already allows farmers to network devices from different manufacturers, to coordinate workflows and to adapt them precisely to their individual conditions. However, the full potential of electronic solutions has not yet been exploited by far. Many more innovations are in the pipeline, including the following:
PRECISION AND ECONOMY
TurnControl is part of the standard equipment of the Juwel and Diamant 12 mounted reversible ploughs. The great advantage: This electrohydraulic control allows both the rotation and the tilt of the plough to be adjusted particularly safely and reliably. Additional optional functions:
TurnControl Pro is the ISOBUS-compatible, fully electronic control solution for the Juwel 8V. It handles automatic plough rotation and the adjustment of plough tilt, working width and working depth as standard. The scope of functions can be expanded further upon request.
The user interface can be displayed on any universal terminal, and functions can additionally be assigned to AUX-N-compatible joysticks. Perfect plough adjustment at the push of a button!
TurnControl Pro is AEF-certified and has been awarded a DLG prize for superior operating comfort.
LEMKEN offers customised, universal and innovative solutions for the easy control of your implements.
The LEMKEN CCI-200 Terminal provides a perfect overview and can be used universally.
LEMKEN auxiliaries are additional operating elements that facilitate implement control, such as joysticks and toggle switch panels.
The comprehensive range of available CCI.Apps allows you to expand your CCI-200 terminal by many useful additional functionalities.
Standardised control structures simplify implement operation, as a single terminal can be used for several implements. It is also possible to share the use of additional control elements, that is so-called auxiliaries such as joysticks and toggle switch panels. This facilitates the use of part width section-specific cultivation measures and permits data and information to be exchanged between implements and farm management software.
BUS stands for Binary Unit System, which serves to transfer data between several participants sharing a single transmission route. The term ISOBUS, which is derived from the international ISO 11783 standard, is the trade name of a data bus for agricultural and municipal use. This standard defines connectors and cables, participants, data formats and interfaces.
The core ISOBUS components are:
Agriculture 4.0 offers enormous potential. Sub-area-specific cultivation through simplified planning and networked solutions enable more efficient management with optimum environmental protection.
The ISOBUS standard has noticeably facilitated communication between machines from different manufacturers. However, the exchange of data between agricultural machinery and software products from different suppliers has often been an insurmountable problem. There has been little progress in this area so far due to a lack of standards. The new agrirouter should overcome this hurdle and enable all farmers to participate in the digitalisation of agriculture. LEMKEN and other agricultural equipment manufacturers have joined forces to develop the agrirouter in order to significantly reduce data conversion problems and the number of communication interfaces in agricultural equipment. In practice, data transfer with the agrirouter then looks like this:
The farm manager plans the fertilisation of his fields on a PC or tablet. Using an app from supplier A, he uses soil maps, soil samples and yield expectations to determine the fertiliser quantity for the various plots and sends the work order by mobile phone to the communication unit of the crop protection device from supplier B. This combines the data with the GPS data transmitted by supplier C's tractor. The employee now fertilises the individual plots. This work is simultaneously documented and the data is automatically entered in the field register of supplier D, which in turn is linked to the accounting programme of supplier E. The data is then entered into the field register of supplier D, which in turn is linked to the bookkeeping programme of supplier E.

Digital technologies have long been part of everyday agricultural life: they help us to tailor our work more flexibly to our needs. They enable much more targeted sowing, fertilisation and irrigation - and thus conserve valuable resources.
Digital technologies in agriculture are:
For LEMKEN, the key to digitising agriculture is universal data management. This is the only way to link agricultural information, software applications, machine data and services from different providers. Intelligent products - such as the LEMKEN weather station - form the basis for this.
After more than 10 years of experience, plant protection at LEMKEN has long outgrown its infancy and, like soil cultivation and sowing, represents an important product area of the company.
The crop protection division was added in 2005 with the acquisition of the companies Jacoby in Hetzerath and RTS in Meppen. The models acquired were then marketed under the name LEMKEN. With the Sirius mounted sprayer, the first LEMKEN device development was presented in 2007. As the first self-developed trailed sprayer, the Vega started series production at the new factory in Haren at the beginning of the year. Further new crop protection sprayers will follow. Not to forget the Primus and Albatros trailed field sprayers, which have been tried and tested for many years and round off the range.
With the construction of the crop protection plant in Haren, the best conditions have been created for further developments in the product area and sufficient production capacity, also for the future. LEMKEN is thus meeting the demands for better environmental protection and increasing precision in the growing crop protection market.
The Sirius field sprayer offers a high capacity for the larger farmer or contractor. A close-coupled design means large tank volumes can be used in a mounted format. In this way, Sirius combines the output of a trailed machine, with the convenience of a mounted machine.
The combination of the Sirius and the Gemini front tank allows you to increase your field sprayer’s capacity by up to 1,100 litres, converting your tractor instantly into a compact, agile self-propelled unit with greater capacity.

LEMKEN is always at least one step ahead as far as pioneering soil cultivation solutions are concerned. Our ploughs, furrow presses, cultivators, compact disc and rotary harrows feature numerous well-designed details and additionally powerful electronics to combine operating comfort with ultimate safety and reliability of use for both conventional and conservation tillage.
In recent years, ploughing has once again gained more importance, especially due to the expansion of maize cultures. In the context of preventing crop disease, controlling weeds mechanically due to increasing resistance against a range of crop protection agents, and controlling mice and other pests, there still is no sustainable alternative to ploughing. Recent studies have shown that ploughing is, for example, unrivalled for loosening and aerating the main root zone to allow rapeseed roots to develop optimally, and ploughing thus establishes an ideal basis for high, reliable yields.
LEMKEN’s entire plough programme stands out through a comprehensive offer of features and accessories for all ploughs. This allows farmers and contract farmers to select the primary soil cultivation implement that is just right for their specific needs. The available features include mechanical and hydraulic stone protection systems, a range of options for selecting the distance between individual bodies to ensure blockage-free operation, and versions with continuous and graded working width adjustment.
MOUNTED REVERSIBLE PLOUGHS
Profitable in any soil
LEMKEN’s mounted reversible ploughs are safe and reliable to use, robust and easy to tow, making them not only economical, but also very versatile.
SEMI-MOUNTED REVERSIBLE PLOUGHS
Maximum safety, reliability and economy
Our comprehensive range of mounted reversible ploughs includes the right model for any needs. These robust ploughs are designed for efficiency and extremely high continuous loads.
In recent years, the aims of stubble cultivation have changed in many places. In the past, stubble cultivation was mainly employed to control weeds and loosen the soil, but most fields are nowadays largely free from weeds, with very few weeds still producing seeds in crops. Modern combine harvesters with extremely wide cutting units need to process very large volumes of straw, which harvesters are often unable to chop optimally and distribute across the full working width. It is particularly important to incorporate volunteer cereals and these large volumes of organic matter intensively when seeding a subsequent crop into mulch. At the same time, capillary action needs to be disrupted during the first stubble cultivation pass to prevent moisture from being lost. Once volunteer cereals have emerged, seeding into mulch takes place at greater depths in order to reduce the density of straw in the topsoil and thus to improve the emergence conditions for the subsequent crop.
COMPACT DISC HARROWS
Our comprehensive range of compact disc harrows positions our customers ideally for both conventional and mulch seeding approaches.
Optimal stubble cultivation
The Kristall and Karat cultivators produce optimal results in stubble cultivation and can also be used for seedbed preparation for mulch seeding.
Perfect for reduced soil cultivation
The versatile pre-cultivator topas is an all-roundern that siuts a wide range of needs.
Loosening without ploughing
The Dolomit pre-loosener loosens the soil across the full surface, especially before a pass with a rotary harrow/seed drill combination, and is suitable for a universal range of applications.
Ploughing loosens and crumbles the soil and increases its pore volume at the same time. This brings air and warmth into the soil and breaks capillary action in the soil. With tight crop rotations, there is often no time for the soil to settle gradually and natural tilth formation processes to take place. While the ploughed soil should not be allowed to dry out, it is essential that capillary action is restored as quickly as possible within the seed horizon.
LEMKEN furrow presses do an outstanding job in supporting soil tilth. They are positioned immediately behind the plough, where they reconsolidate the topsoil and break down large clumps at the right moment and at the optimal degree of moisture. This favours tilth formation and prevents drying out.
INTEGRATED FURROW PRESSES
Good reconsolidation and optimal transport
Our integrated furrow presses are permanently attached to the plough and ensure optimal reconsolidation.
High effifacy in any soil
The VarioPack furrow press contributes to optimal reconsolidation under any conditions of operation.
Versatile and essential
LEMKEN offers a comprehensive range of trailing rollers for any conditions of operation. Each trailing roller guides implement depth precisely and supports consistent, reliable drive.
An ideal seedbed forms the basis for optimal crop development. Ideally, the prepared soil will be well levelled and loosened across the full implement width and to the full working depth. LEMKEN seedbed preparation implements produce an optimal distribution of soil aggregates and establish a good crumbling structure in the seeding layer. Following rollers ensure even reconsolidation all the way through to the depth at which seeds are placed. Soil reconsolidation additionally protects the water supply needed for seedlings. Precise seedbed preparation and high acreage performance at low wearing part costs are decisive arguments for using LEMKEN seedbed preparation implements in modern arable farming.
Our Korund and System-Kompaktor seedbed combinations meet all requirements of arable farming for the preparation of ideal seedbeds.
Efficiency in all cultivation methods
The rotary harrows from the Zirkon range are optimally designed for maximum continuous loads. For perfect seedbed preparation in both conventional and conservation tillage – in all types of soils!
As the Agrovision Company, we do everything to enable our customers to work comfortably, efficiently, and sustainably.
This core principle has made us the technological leader in the farm machinery industry. Thus numerous innovations innovations are based on it which act as a decisive driving force for the work processes of farmers and contractors worldwide.
The LEMKEN OptiQuick adjustment system allows you to adjust your plough precisely to your individual operating conditions. Both the front furrow width and the tractor/plough traction line can additionally be adjusted optimally within a very short time. This not only minimises material wear and reduces fuel consumption, but also saves time and money.
Our stable, user-friendly plough body
The DuraMaxx bodies enable the service lives to be increased by 150 % and the set-up time to be reduced by up to 80%.
The DuraMaxx parts are manufactured from much harder steel than conventional plough bodies. This is made possible as the material is no longer weakened by drilling and punching. Mouldboards and slats are supported fully by the frog and other support structures. This means they can be used completely without compromising stability.
The DuraMaxx plough bodies are designed in such a way that mouldboards, slats, and shins can be changed quickly without tools.
For disruption-free ploughing
All LEMKEN overload protection systems protect share points when they hit obstacles. All LEMKEN ploughs are equipped as standard with a double-cut shear bolt protection. The auto reset systems use a roller mechanism which provides smooth tripping with high trip and re-entry forces when the plough makes contact with an obstacle.
The DUAL shift gears from LEMKEN facilitate not only changing the speed of the rotors but also the direction of rotation of the rotors.
The change in the direction of rotation enables the knife tines to be set to “grip” or “drag”.
The serrated concave discs of the Rubin 12 with a diameter of 736 mm and a thickness of 6 mm represent a new performance class among compact disc harrows.
The symmetrical arrangement of the discs in both row enables working without lateral pull, even when driving on a slope.
Specially curved and coiled legs ensure maximum clearance between the discs. This prevents clogging, along with the slight offset of the middle discs.
Increasing cost pressure means that farmers must be flexible in deciding whether to use conventional or conservation tillage. Modern seed drills are increasingly fitted with Double Disc coulters allowing use in conservation tillage. They can be used under nearly all conditions and allow the farmer freedom of choice when deciding which tillage method to use.
QuickConnect, the automatic top link coupling system for the Sirius sprayers from LEMKEN,
combines for the first time two important benefits:
