HighlightsPrecision and high work output Economical crop establishment Seed metering rotors for all conditions
For a rapid implementation of cover crops during stubble operation, the pneumatic seeder Kverneland a-drill has been designed to be mounted on the range of short-disc harrows Qualidisc Pro / Qualidisc Farmer the stubble cultivator, Kverneland CTC and subsoiler Kverneland DTX.
The protection of the environment has become a key topic in today’s agriculture. Due to the risk of contaminated groundwater, local over-fertilisation and soil erosion, recent European regulations, rules and policies have defined new standards. One of the main measures is the systematic coverage of soils by a vegetal cover in the autumn.
Not only will the cover crops prevent soil erosion but this will also improve the soil structure, soil fertility and biodiversity.
Kverneland has extended the scope of application even further and offers the option to integrate the pneumatic seeder a-drill also onto the range of power harrow mounted seed drills, e-drill compact, e-drill maxi and e-drill maxi plus. In these combinations the a-drill will allow applying an addditional sort of seeds/fertilser all in one pass.
Two a-drill models are available depending on the seed rate/ha and the output of the machine: a-drill 200 and 500 litres.
Both models have 8 outlets which will spread the flow of seeds uniformly over the working width. In addition, they can also be used for establishing rape or a mix of different diameters seeds (leguminous plant, crucifers, ...).
