A wide variety of agronomic methods are easy to implement with the Cirrus:

Single-shoot: Via the sowing coulter
Double-shoot: Via the sowing coulter + fertiliser coulter or GreenDrill, e.g. via baffle plates
Triple-shoot: Via the sowing coulter + fertiliser coulter + GreenDrill, e.g. via baffle plates

Seed and fertiliser flexibly combined

Excellent root development through application of fertiliser

The different entry points mean that fertiliser and additional seed types can be precisely placed between the rows in different placement depths via the FerTeC fertiliser coulter using the single-shoot or double-shoot process.

Undersown crops for plant and yield protection

Undersown crops enable the weed pressure to be minimised and erosion control increased by sowing companion crops via the double-shoot or triple-shoot process. The simultaneous sowing of legumes for nitrogen fixation is also interesting in this respect.

Advantages of double-shoot in undersowing: 
(e.g. sowing spring cereals/oats in combination with clover)
