|WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING FOR IN A DISC COULTER DRILL?|
A seed drill that is simple, flexible and with low running costs – one that will work on ploughing or Min-Till – you can tick each of these.
FANTERRA SEED DRILL FOR THE BEST RESULTS
PLOUGH BASED SYSTEMS
MIN-TILL BASED SYSTEMS
The key to achieving even emergence and subsequent establishment is re-consolidation after the plough. In plough based systems it is essential to use a front press in conjunction with Vector Disc seed drills to achieve even germination and the best results.
It is an advantage to have a firm pressed surface for the drill to work on, although the design of the Vector disc seed drill system can cope with a high amount of crop residue and/or trash on the surface.
1. NEW CTX ROLLER
This roller ensures consolidation directly in line with the rows of seed as the edges of each rubber segment run directly behind the coulters.
This means extra consolidation around the seed with a comparatively loose area of soil between rows so that excessive rainfall can permeate and seep away rather than capping, or running off the surface.
In dry conditions the soil to seed contact provided by the extra consolidation around the seed can be critical in encouraging capillary action of moisture to the seed.
|2. INTERMEDIATE COVERING HARROW|
One of the most important components of the Vector seed drilling system is the intermediate covering harrow.
This uses tilth from either side of the seed slot to cover in, above the seed, BEFORE it is pressed in by the roller. On heavy land, seed slots behind many seed drills remain open even after the press roller has passed. This leaves the seed exposed to pests and reduces the soil to seed contact.
The covering harrow of the Vector disc seed drill system ensures that all the seed is covered by soil achieving maximum soil to seed contact improving establishment and subsequent germination.
|3. TWO ROWS OF VECTOR DISC|
These are the key part of the seed drilling system, having been used for nearly 15 years on drills sold in the UK and all over Europe, they are proven and very reliable.
The Fanterra Drill Vector discs are cultivator discs, scalloped and angled at 4 degrees to the direction of travel to ensure smooth continuous rotation. The clever design also ensures the creation of a smear free slot for the seed to be placed in.
The Vector discs are individually mounted on heavy-duty springs that ensure the seed is placed at the preset depth. Setting the rear roller controls this depth. These springs enable the discs to move up and out of the way of any solid object under the soil but otherwise guarantee a consistent seed drilling depth
|4. THE SHATTABOARD|
This is the first soil engaging part to do its work and it can be fitted with slicing plates for additional cultivation or standard levelling plates for improved levelling.
It can be set to carry small amounts of soil along in order to level and consolidate the seedbed further whilst, at the same time it shatters and breaks down the clods for final seedbed preparation.
This finishes the job, levelling the surface and spreading any accumulations of crop residue to ensure there is nothing to hamper the seedlings growth.
It ensures some larger soil particles are left on the surface to provide a small amount of protection for the young plants.
Hydraulic fan provides consistent airflow regardless of engine revs.
HE-VA seed control ensures precise management of the seed drilling.
Even distribution of seed and return to tank tramlining.
Cultivator disc coulter with replaceable coulter tip.
Flexible folding road lights.
The seed drill range includes 3m and 4m rigid units and 4m, 6m hydraulic folding machines.

Detachable pre-emergence markers for the Fanterra seed drill can be plumbed into the tramlining system as an optional extra.
In order to produce a seedbed that is as even as possible the effect of the tractor wheelings has to be minimised. This will also help to achieve simultaneous germination and even growth.
To achieve this all HE-VA seed drills come with the option of eradicator tines. These are designed to lift the compaction out without smearing.
Available for all seed drills as a simple override to allow the Sabre Seeder grain drill / seed drill to fit in with any width tramline system without double seeding.
