Krone launches second twin engined self-propelled forager.
Farmers Weekly Interactive, UK, December 18, 2006.

"The Krone twin-engine approach for flexible forage harvesting has been
applied to a new self-propelled machine from the German firm. The German
market for self-propelled harvesters has been booming, with total sales
of all makes at over 500 during 2006. One of the main reasons for this
boom is a massive increase in on-farm biogas production from wholecrop
fermenting. More than half the 5000 biogas fermenters on German farms
are now fuelled partly or completely with grass, wholecrop cereals or
maize, according to the country’s Ministry of Agriculture."
