SALTEX 2013, the highlight of the groundcare events calendar, will see AMAZONE, the specialist for fertiliser spreaders, seed drills, powered and non-powered soil cultivation, precision air seeders and crop protection sprayers roll out CESAR security and registration across its range of groundcare machinery.

Amazone designs and builds a comprehensive range of groundcare machinery and whatever the time of year they have a machine for every application from snow clearing in the winter, cut and collect in the grass season to scarifying and leaf collection in the autumn.

Amazone adopted CESAR in May and exhibited their first CESAR equipped machine, a Pantera 4001 self-propelled crop protection sprayer, at the 2 day CEREALS exhibition held near Lincoln in June.

Commenting on the announcement Amazone’s UK Brand Manager Simon Brown had this to say, “CESAR has proven to be a powerful deterrent against theft and a valuable aid in recovery. Our Groundcare products are used in urban and remote locations and they are therefore susceptible to opportunistic thieves. Fitting CESAR is a sensible precaution and a benefit to our customers who cannot afford the financial loss and the disruption caused by equipment theft.”

CESAR works by giving each piece of equipment a unique and permanent ‘fingerprint’ using an array of high technology security marking devices, supplied by Datatag, including tamper evident triangular registrations plates, Radio-frequency identification (RFID) transponders, forensic liquid DNA, and microscopic Datadots®.

CESAR, the only official equipment security and registration scheme, was launched, initially for construction equipment; in January 2007 subsequently CESAR was launched into agriculture in September 2009 after gaining approval from the Agricultural Engineers Association (AEA). The unique triangular tamper-proof registration plate is now a familiar sight on a wide range of construction, agricultural and industrial equipment up and down the country. Wide spread adoption by leading equipment manufacturers including John Deere, Massey Ferguson, JCB and many others has made the CESAR scheme the most successful scheme of its type anywhere in the world. Over 120,000 pieces of equipment are now protected and registered with CESAR.
