HORSCH DRILL

Our Horsch Pronto DC 4 is a compact seed drill that is both lightweight and has a large hopper capacity to maximize performance and seeding quality. The combination of precise seed placement, a high seeding speed and an excellent tolerance for seedbed conditions makes our drill ideal for seeding throughout Taranaki and Wanganui. The drill utilizes DiscSystems discs placed at the front of the drill to loosen, level and refine the soil before seeding, ensuring that any previous crop residues and soils are thoroughly incorporated into the seedbed. A fertilizer applicator also allows starter fert to be applied while seeding.

4m working width ● 143mm row spacings ● 2800L hopper capacity ● 28 seed coulters

CARRIER DRILL

We also operate a Väderstad 500S series Carrier Drill fitted with a BioDrill as another option for seeding. The Carrier is effectively two machines in one, with the highly efficient cultivation properties of the base Carrier unit, paired with the precision seeding abilities of the fitted BioDrill, the Carrier allows us and our customers to save on time and money. Discs positioned at the front of the drill allow for aggressive incorporation of previous crop residues down to 12cm in depth. A packer at the rear of the drill compresses the soil after seeding, ensuring good soil consolidation.

MAIZE PRECISION PLANTER

Our 2015 Väderstad Tempo F Precision Planter is a high speed and high accuracy precision planter. The planter is able to sustain a high speed while maintaining precision and accuracy which is vital in ensuring a consistent and high yielding crop. The planter’s ability to plant with both speed and accuracy is due to the technology in the Gilstring Seed Meter in which a pressurized seed tube is used to ‘shoot’ the seed into the ground, allowing the planter to run at a high speed while maintaining the accuracy which maximizes a crop’s yield. While we primarily use the planter for maize, it is able to plant a wide variety of seeds including soybean, sunflowers, millet, sorghum, fodder beet and oilseed rape. A fertilizer application also allows customers the option to apply a starter fert while planting.
