The cart is divided into four compartments of varying sizes: 10 500 litres, 16 800 litres, 16 800 litres and 1400 litres. Wheat is normally kept in the 10 500 litre tank and fertiliser in the 16 800 litre tank.
“To the best of our knowledge, this is the largest hopper on the market. Together with a 25 metre wide direct drill, it is possible to drill up to 61 hectares per fill. This is based on a seed rate of 120 kg per hectare and a fertiliser rate of 300 kg per hectare”, said one of the founders of Seed Hawk, Brian Dean.
