Professional crop production is faced with ever greater challenges: The new Fertiliser Directive and the withdrawal of individual plant protection agents on the one hand, with increasing resistance on the other, as well as extreme climatic events such as severe drought, are just a few examples.

This means that crop production methods, crop rotation, plant protection and fertilisation practices as well as the strategy for crop establishment needs to be reviewed and changed if necessary. The seed drill plays a key role here. This is because perfect sowing is the basis for maximum yields.

See for yourself!

The trailed Cirrus universal combination comes into its own, not only in single-pass ploughing and sowing and mulch sowing, but also in water-conserving minimum-till sowing in strips or without any preceding seedbed preparation. The application of up to 3 different materials at up to 3 placement depths in the triple-shoot process can also be implemented to perfection with the Cirrus. In addition to the seed, the Cirrus also provides the option of applying very precise amounts of fertiliser at different entry points and the application of different seed types and undersown crops in a single pass. In addition to this, the seed rates of the individual seed types or of seed and fertiliser can be tailored on a part-area, site-specific basis by means of application maps.

Sowing without limits!

The divided twin outlet pressurised hopper of the Cirrus-CC and additional use of the GreenDrill 501 universal catch crop seeder box mean that up to three materials can be simultaneously applied independently of each other in different placement depths.

The following are examples of modern agronomic practices: 

  • Nurse crops: Cereal crop + grass or legumes
  • Companion plants: Rape + linseed, legumes, phacelia, …
  • Catch crop mixtures: Coarse and fine seeds, shallow and deep germinators


A large number of possibilities for combining seed and fertiliser, e.g.:

  • Starter fertiliser in the seed row (single-shoot)
  • Fertiliser deposited between the rows (double-shoot)
  • Sowing of two seed types with fertiliser (triple-shoot)

Excellent root development through application of fertiliser

The different entry points mean that fertiliser and additional seed types can be precisely placed between the rows in different placement depths via the FerTeC fertiliser coulter using the single-shoot or double-shoot process.

Advantages of single-shoot:

  • Direct placement of fertiliser near the grain for good starter fertilisation or the easy availability of immobile nutrients
Flexible Kombination von Saatgütern und Dünger (2)
Single-Shoot








Advantages of double-shoot:

  • Fertiliser placed deeper extends the availability of the fertiliser owing to slower conversion
  • Phosphate and ammonium, which are often deficient in arable farming regions, attract the roots of the plant. An initial dose of DAP (diammonium phosphate) will, for example, promote good root development

Undersown crops for plant and yield protection

Undersown crops enable the weed pressure to be minimised and erosion control increased by sowing companion crops via the double-shoot or triple-shoot process. The simultaneous sowing of legumes for nitrogen fixation is also interesting in this respect.

  • The goal is a reduction in the use of fertiliser and plant protection agents

Advantages of double-shoot in undersowing: 
(e.g. sowing spring cereals/oats in combination with clover)

  • Clover suppresses weeds through early soil coverage
  • Spring cereals grow through the clover
  • The clover can be harvested after the cereal crop

Advantages of triple-shoot:
(e.g. sowing rape together with field beans and a companion crop mixture of phacelia and buckwheat)

  • Rape in the upper horizon as a main crop
  • Field beans sown deeply via the fertiliser coulter as a nitrogen fixer
  • Companion plants sown on the surface for weed suppression

Advantages of using companion crops / undersown crops:

Triple-shoot

  • Greater biodiversity
  • Less soil erosion
  • Better protection against moisture loss
  • Improved crumb structure
  • Improved nutrient availability
  • Fewer crop protection measures
  • CO₂ binding, generation of organic matter
  • Increase in photosynthetic activity

Conserving water with the Minimum TillDisc

The Minimum TillDisc cuts the soil and residues in front of the seed rows with the wavey profile of the disc bringing moist earth up from deeper directly to the seed row without moving a lot of soil.

Minimum TillDisc (2) MinimumTillDisc_Fahrspur_d1_200602








  • Soil tillage and placement of the seed is provided in the same row
  • For minimal and therefore water-conserving soil tillage – ideal for arid locations
  • Placement of the seed in the moist sowing horizon to promote better germination
  • Reduces soil erosion and protects the soil from evaporation
  • Exceptional easy pulling characteristics – fuel-efficient

Better water utilisation thanks to strip-wise cultivation with the Minimum TillDisc

The right choice of soil tillage tool

Minimum TillDisc (1) Cirrus6003-2CC_MTD_d0_kw_DJI_0330_d1_191026
Cirrus 6003-2CC

  1. Leading tyre packer
  2. Disc element with either Minimum TillDisc or the coarse- or fine-serrated discs
  3. FerTeC single disc coulter
  4. Matrix tyres
  5. TwinTeC+ double disc coulter or RoTeC pro single disc coulter
  6. Seed baffle plates for the GreenDrill 501

In addition to the Minimum TillDisc disc element, the Cirrus can be used with other soil tillage tools depending on the soil conditions and sowing process. The disc elements can also be easily changed. It goes without saying that the Cirrus can also be used without soil tillage.

The individually suspended discs provide effective and even mixing of the soil and the production of fine soil. The working depth can be comfortably changed from the tractor seat thanks to the hydraulic depth adjustment.

Coarse- or fine-serrated disc element

  • For good soil mixing
  • Good crumbling and levelling effect
  • Soil loosening
  • Weed control


Strip-wise reconsolidation with the Matrix tyres

Good reconsolidation plays an important role in sowing. Firstly, it provides a uniform and level seedbed. Secondly, it promotes optimum seed/soil contact and a good supply of nutrients and water to the plants.

Gezielte, streifenweise Rückverfestigung

  • Systematic strip-wise reconsolidation through the arrangement of the cleats in the seed row 
  • Good reconsolidation is important, especially in dry years, in order to be able to use the residual soil moisture
  • Matrix tyres produce fine soil for optimum germination conditions
  • Optimum weight distribution prevents soil compaction
  • High forward speeds up to 40 km/h, even with a full tank


  1. Row spacing 12.5 cm: Plants at a row spacing of 12.5 cm
  2. Row spacing 16.6 cm: Plants at a row spacing of 16.6 cm


The right sowing coulter for any application

There is a choice of two precision sowing coulters: Apart from the universal RoTeC pro single disc coulter especially designed for use on cohesive soils, the TwinTeC+ double disc coulter for high forward speeds is also available.

Choosing the right row spacing plays a key role, both in conventional and ecological cultivation. In addition to the 16.6 cm row spacing, a spacing of 12.5 cm be selected for both coulter systems, in order to obtain quick coverage and therefore quick smother by the seed rows.
