Matrot out of market deal

MATROT has terminated its arrangement with Hydro Chafer for the marketing of the Matrot 44D self-propelled sprayer and entered into a distribution agreement with Profarma of Soham, Cambs.

A full service, emergency call-out and AEA sprayer test is also included in the scheme.
