There is no method more efficient! So end users make a judgement on the Citan 12001-C

"We achieve high sowing work rates“

“100 to 120 ha per shift, more than 2,500 ha per season – is no problem with our new Citan 12001-C” W. M. Nadeew reports. W. M. Nadeew is the Deputy General Director of the “Schazk Zolotaja Niva” farm, which belongs to the Agroterra Group. Here a semi-continental climate prevails and the average rainfall amounts to 450 to 500 mm per year. Last year the farm cultivated 10,162 ha of winter wheat, 8,169 ha of sunflowers and 7,945 ha of spring rape. "Compared with other seed drills, the Citan provides us with a series of benefits," explains the Deputy General Director. "We achieve high sowing work rates. In addition, we require fewer filling systems to supply the seed and fertiliser." W. N. Makarov, the chief agronomist of “Schazk Zolotaja Niva”, says that another benefit of the Citan is the easy initial adjustment of the seed rate and the sowing depth. And: "Irrespective of the soil type, the actual seed rates and sowing depths match very well to what we have pre-set. In this way we can finish sowing punctually by the optimum dates yet with a high quality of finish. This ensures our yields and makes the Citan stand out in comparison with other seed drills.”

“Top performance at the optimum sowing date”

“In 2011 we purchased the first five Citan 12000”, Tschernikow Alexander, chief agronomist of the farm “Tula Wozroschdenije” reports. “We then had such a good experience with these machines that we decided in 2012 to purchase twelve more Citan 12001-C.”

The ground consists of medium to heavy loamy, leached black soil. The average rainfall is 550 to 600 mm/year. The farm cultivated over 42,000 ha of arable land in 2012. “At sowing speeds of 10 to 12 km/ha, we manage with each Citan approximately 160 ha of cereals/day or 200 ha of rape/day. So in spring and autumn 2012 we sowed more than 3,000 ha with each machine." states Tschernikow Alexander. "With this quality of machinery we manage top-work rates at the optimum sowing date. When cereal sowing, one tank fill is sufficient for over 2 to 2.5 hours before we have to refill. At the same time, the RoTeC pro coulters reliably sow the seed at the desired depth. The distribution along the rows is also optimal. This provides us with a good and even field emergence.”
