Sowing following the plough or mulch sowing with pneumatic seed drill combinations
AMAZONE seed drill combinations have proven themselves by the hundred thousand both for cost saving mulch sowing and also when conventionally sowing following the plough. When mulch sowing, the combination of rotary cultivator, wedge ring roller and seed rail with RoTeC Control disc coulters is recommended. The rotary cultivator loosens even hard packed soils and maintains its working depth due to the “on-grip” tines. The straw is simultaneously incorporated and, thanks to the large clearances between the tines and the trough, the straw-soil-mixture can pass through the machine above the tine carriers without a problem. The following levelling board levels any ridges and furrows. The wedge ring roller reconsolidates the soil in strips so that one third of the soil is reconsolidated whereas two thirds of the surface remains loose. The RoTeC Control coulters then precisely place the seed into the reconsolidated strips.
