New Holland machines officially inaugurate Paraguay’s 2017 rice harvest
The guests were treated to a live demonstration as New Holland’s combines began their work on harvesting rice for the season. Sitting in the harvester cab, President Cartes was given the opportunity to gain a better appreciation of the advanced technology and got a sense of how it will work during this crucial window. In addition, attendees were given a tour of the rice factory to learn about the complete process from harvest to packaging.
Villa Oliva Rice is located 120 kilometers south of the country’s capital Asunción. With 18,000 hectares’ worth of land situated along the Paraguay River, its geographic location not only favors the ideal agro-climatic conditions for the production of high quality rice, but is also in a strategic location in terms of transport and logistics. The facility reaches an annual average yield of 80,000 tons of rice.
