AMAZONE - USA
Crop establishment and economic benefits
With the Citan, in working widths of 8 m to 15 m, AMAZONE offers a solo system approach where soil tillage and sowing are divided. In this way, the Citan meets the need in achieving the optimum sowing time. Reduced soil compaction and an efficient sowing operation are important considerations in modern, close crop rotations. When carrying out soil tillage as a separate operation, the soil has time to settle ensuring a better seed/soil contact for an improved field emergence. With the 15 m Citan, acreage outputs of up to 15 ha/h are possible. An additional aspect of winter crop establishment that some practitioners regard as positive: is that the coulters of the Citan move the minimum of soil so that the stimulation of new weeds (such as blackgrass) is kept to a minimum.
