AMAZONE - USA
Contour sowing unit
The AMAZONE Contour sowing unit is ideally suited to both mulch sowing and when working after the plough. The outstanding feature of the AMAZONE Contour sowing unit is the low singling disc position with a drop height of only 140 mm. The sophisticated coulter technology creates a seed furrow, virtually free from any organic matter. The sowing coulter undercuts the clearing disc, resulting in a well re-consolidated wedge shaped groove. These are the optimum pre-conditions but, under very light and sandy soils, the additional carrying wheel can be fitted on to the Contour sowing coulter to prevent it sinking too deeply into the soil. In this way the placement depth can be maintained significantly better.
