Mechanization equipment development
Cenicaña develops mechanization equipment focused on providing an appropriate environment for optimum seed germination and good crop development.
Cenicaña developed the Cenitándem, a subsoiler that performs tillage in levels using two semi-parabolic rods aligned in the direction of advance of the tractor. The first stem has a working depth between 25 and 30 centimeters and the second comes to work the soil up to 50 cm deep. In its lower part, each stem is provided with steel fin tips to improve disturbance in the horizontal direction. El Cenitándem is a Cenicaña development that has achieved full diffusion and adoption in the sugar sector. Currently, modifications are being investigated that may lead to improving the performance of the Cenitándem.
Cenitándem modified by adding four scarifiers.
Eccentric Reversible Trencher
Cenicaña has contributed to the development of the reversible eccentric trencher for the construction of irrigation and drainage ditches. This equipment has improved characteristics compared to conventional trenchers such as the elimination of trampling of the crop at the ends of the grooves, the construction of the ditches with an asymmetrical section to increase the length of the groove, two-way operation (reversible). The equipment is currently being used by mills in Valle del Cauca.
