The small seeds kit for Väderstad Tempo improves results when planting small seeded crops, such as oilseed rape and sugar beet. This increases yield and widens the usage of the high-speed planter even further.
Excellent planting precision for small seeds
Planting a small seeded crop at a shallow planting depth requires the planter to be very gentle to the seed. The main components of the small seeds kit includes suspended stop wheels and the ability to adjust the angle of the closing wheels.
Gentle stop wheel
The task of the stop wheel is to ensure an optimal seed-to-soil contact when the seed leaves the seed tube. By equipping the stop wheel with a suspension, this operation can be adjusted to be gentler to the seed. This is favorable for shallow planted small seeds.
Closing according to need
The angle of the closing wheels can be adjusted to ensure the seed trench is closed when planting at a shallow planting depth. Changing the closing wheel angle is easily carried out with a lever on each row unit.
One machine - Multiple crops
Maize, sugar beet, soya beans, sunflower, oilseed rape, cotton, sorghum and many more – Tempo is able to plant a full range of crops with excellent results.
By easily changing the row spacing and machine setup for different crops, Tempo offers high versatility on the farm. The result is increased efficiency and minimised machine costs per hectare. Changing the seed discs are carried out in a matter of seconds without the need of tools.
