Prebežal iz Rusije in izumil traktor brez šoferja(SLO)

Slovenske Novice writes about Mikhail Kostkin, his path from Russia to Slovenia and the development of the Slopehelper system.
Barbara Pance follows the story of Dr. Mikhail Kostkin who developed the basis for the Slopehelper system in Russia, then moved to Slovenia after the aggression on Krim started in 2014. in Slovenia he applied his invention for use in vineyards and orchards resulting in a agricultlral system that negates the need for human work in the fields. The machine is now fully prepared for use and is on sale. It brings a much needed solution to many problems facing the modern farmer (lack of workforce, rise in production costs, ban of herbicides, etc.). Slopehelper is a simple machine that brings a solution to a really complex problem.
