The Optima is the universal precision drill for maize, sunflowers, field beans, unpelleted beet, pelleted beet, dwarf beans, soya beans, peas, and many other types of seed. It can be used for a whole diversity of applications and offers greater capacity through increased working widths. All rigid Optima frames can be equipped with either mechanical or electric drive - also normal seeding, Tandem and HD-II rows are available. The Optima can be combined with an optional fertiliser spreader, front hopper or microgranule spreader.
The combination of the Optima with the iXtra LiFe allows the application of liquid fertiliser during seeding. For more information, please see iXtra LiFe.

The rigid Optima is available in 3m, 4.5m, 6.1m and 9.3m with a row width from narrow 30cm up to 80cm depending on the kind of row and equipment.
The small machines can be driven without any mounting on the road. Machines from 6.1m working width can be equipped with a lengthwise transport device.
The sowing units – like the whole machine – are modular in design

e-drive/e-drive II – complete control and monitoring of the machine from the tractor cab in accordance with ISOBUS standard
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!
