Pushing the limits in precision planting
Tempo has been widey tested in Hungary over the last few years, here with the family Radak one of the first owners of a Tempo.
“Precision, speed and capacity were the keywords when we started to develop Väderstad Tempo. To achieve this Väderstad developed a new pressurized seed meter capable of planting corn and sunflower at a very high speed. Tempo is equipped with large seed and fertilizer hoppers giving our customers a machine with unrivalled capacity”. However, Väderstad Tempo is not only about precision, speed and capacity. Through its perfect seed placement, we achieve an even germination giving your crop the best possible start”, says Lars Thylén at Väderstad.
