Väderstad launches the new Spirit 600C InLine

The new Spirit 600C InLine is available from October 2021

Väderstad, one of the world's leading companies in tillage, seeding and planting, adds the new Spirit 600C InLine to its wide seed drill segment from October 2021. The InLine-version of Spirit places a low fertiliser rate together with the seed in the seed furrow, providing the plant quick nutrient uptake.

– The InLine system allows the fertiliser to be placed in the same row as the seed. This gives the seed a quick boost directly after drilling, shortening the time of emergence. The InLine system is highly beneficial when working with moderate levels of fertilisers, says Magnus Samuelsson, Concept Developer, at Väderstad.

Spirit 600C InLine allows for a high capacity, high precision solution. 

– Spirit 600C InLine is equipped with a separated airflow where the fertiliser is distributed apart from the seed. This prevents sorting of inputs in the system and is of most importance when the sizes and weight of the kernels are different. The intensity of the airflow is easily adjusted, ensuring that both the seeds and fertiliser are placed with optimal precision, says Magnus Samuelsson,

The fertiliser is metered with the Fenix electric metering system, this is the same unit used as for the seed metering. It is both highly precise and non-corrosive. Split cells in the rotor and an angled exit from the metering unit efficiently prevents any pulsing, ensuring that all plants will have the exact same access to fertiliser.

The new Väderstad Spirit 600C Inline is available from October 2021.
