Väderstad Acquires Thyregod Cultivator Line

Seeding and tillage equipment company Väderstad has announced it’s acquiring Danish company Thyregod’s inter-row tillage business.

This acquisition adds a full product range of inter-row cultivators to the current Väderstad product portfolio, which includes Seed Hawk equipment manufactured in Saskatchewan. All intellectual property rights to Thyregod’s inter-row cultivator product area are included in the deal.

The spring of 2023 will be a transition period and Väderstad will take over the responsibility for the inter-row cultivator business as of June 1st, the company says.

The Thyregod TRV technology includes a patented section lift, countless adjustment options, and the world’s first camera-controlled inter-row cultivator with individual frames that are each controlled by a camera.

For the initial part of the takeover, the inter-row cultivators will be sold under the Thyregod brand, and they will be manufactured in Thyregod’s production facilities in Denmark. As of June 2024, they will carry the Väderstad brand, with more details to be announced prior to Agritechnica 2023, the company says.
