Monopill/Monopill e-drive II - Mechanical precision drill for beet, rape and chicory
Precise Seed Placement and Singulation
The MONOPILL with mechanical and MONOPILL e-drive II with electrical drive are designed for professional precision drilling of beet, rape and chicory. With the Monopill, the peripheral speed of the seed disc matches exactly the forward speed of the machine; therefore the seed has “zero speed effect” which eliminates seed bounce.
Even under the most difficult conditions the parallelogram mounting of the Monopill & Monopill e-drive II sowing units guarantee precise depth control.
The rigid end tow toolbars are available in working widths of 3m, 6m, 9m and 12 m. The convenient and time saving parallel hydraulic folding is available in 6 m and 9m working width. The transport width of all MONOPILL & Monopill e-drive II models is a maximum of 3m.
|Working width||Row width||Weight|
|Monopill 6 row rigid||3.0m||45/50||400|
|Monopill 12 row rigid||6.0m||45/50||910|
|Monopill 18 row rigid||9.0m||45/50||1750|
|Monopill 24 row rigid||12.0m||45/50||2800|
|Monopill 12 row PH||6.0m||45/50||1250|
|Monopill 18 row PH||9.0m||45/50||2180|
The sowing units – like the whole machine – are modular in design
The cultivation of sugar beet requires special care and the right supply of nutrients. In this respect, the application of micro granule and micro fertiliser whilst seeding plays an important role for early crop development.
Each unit of the micro-drill has been designed to supply three sowing units and offers a hopper capacity of 35 liters. It is electrically driven and ISOBUS controlled. The metering device consists of a wear-resistant plastic housing and exchangeable cell wheels made of stainless steel which ensure precise metering of different micro granules. Application rates from 2kg up to 25kg/ha are possible.
The advantage for the environment: the granulate falls freely into the seed furrow without air support, minimising the emission of dust and complying with the current guidelines for emission control for any granulates applied.
The comfortable, fully ISOBUS, integrated control system allows the adaption of the stop and start points of the seed row. This ensures precise shutting on and off at the end of the field (without overlaps or faults).
The engineers’ focus has been to increase operator safety by easy and safe handling. Therefore, the operator is able to exchange the cell wheels even when the hoppers are full of granule. There is no need to empty them first, reducing the operator’s risk of being in direct contact with the granules.
The Kverneland micro dill has been approved by the Julius Kühn Institute (Institute for Application Techniques in Plant Protection) (Reference G 2196).
The Kverneland micro-drill is available for Monopill e-drive II and Unicorn e-drive II.
IsoMatch GEOCONTROL - Cost saving with immediate payback
Seeding with GPS and GEOCONTROL in combination with an electric driven precision drill is a major step towards precision and cost saving. These machines are all equipped with ISOBUS technology which with the help of the IsoMatch Tellus terminal, can be easily controlled.
Each electric driven seeding element, in combination with GPS and GEOCONTROL, is automatically switched on or off in exactly the right place, ensuring there is no overlap with any row that has already been seeded. This is especially handy in triangular fields, on curved or irregular shaped headlands.
GEOSEED - Precision at high end
GEOSEED is offered in two different levels:
GEOSEED Level 1 is the synchronization in the machines working width. This improves the distribution of seeds up to perfection in parallel or diamond pattern: Positive effects are the best use of nutrients, water and sun. Also the wind and water erosion is decreased.
GEOSEED Level 2 is the synchronization in the whole field. This is the necessary requirement for interrow cultivation, also across the seeding direction. GEOSEED is the only system in the world, that makes this mechanic weeds control possible!
