What is a precision seeder used for?
The precision seeder, also called a monoseed seeder, has a very special role in tillage. Indeed, on a field or a plot, the precision or monoseed seeder allows seeds to be placed at regular intervals on a line. It is used for crops requiring a row spacing of at least 25 cm and requiring precise seed placement, such as corn, sunflower, rapeseed, peas, beans, beets, chicory, soy, etc. Generally, single-grain seed drills are equipped with an individual hopper per row and distribution element.
The seeds then pass through organs such as the distribution discs and are buried in the ground thanks to a coulter, which can be preceded by a clod remover and followed by a wheel or roller to cover the seed and firm the soil in order to to guarantee maximum contact between the soil and the seed There are two types of precision seed drills: with mechanical or pneumatic distribution. Typically, a planter is mounted, but can also be trailed or semi-mounted.
The different types of monoseed seeder
There are therefore two types of precision seed drill:
- The single-grain seeder with mechanical distribution: It is equipped with discs fitted with cells of the size of the seeds to be sown, which bring the seeds evenly to the level of the coulter where they are released by gravity.
- The single-grain seed drill with pneumatic distribution: It is equipped with a turbine to distribute the seeds pneumatically. By vacuum distribution, the seeds are sucked from the hopper by vacuum and fixed on the holes of the distribution disc. When the hole concerned arrives at the pass without depression, the seed is released and falls at the level of the sowing coulter. By distribution by overpressure, the seeds are fixed by pressurized air in peripheral funnels of a rotating vertical disc. The seed is released towards the seed coulter thanks to an ejector finger.
Precision seed drills are generally used at low working speed in order to guarantee optimum precision, but there are also high-speed single-grain seed drills which allow sowing at a speed of 6 to 20 km/h, in particular the Tempo seed drills from Väderstad., You will also find on Agricolors.com all the parts for your Tempo Väderstad seeder.
