The key for high-speed planting

The Tempo seed meter stands out from the rest. Thanks to PowerShoot technology, which uses air pressure to maintain full control of the seed all the way down to the soil, it eliminates negative effects from gravity, vibrations and slopes. As a result, speed is not an issue for Tempo.

The value of high-speed planting

High-speed planting provides several benefits. Since a larger area can be covered with the same working width, while also improving precision, there are several ways to increase net profit.

When timing is everything

The ideal planting window is typically narrow. Some years extreme weather limits the window even more. Planting within the optimum period provides perfect temperature and moisture for the planted crop. Any delay reduces the yield potential.

Increased field efficiency

By planting with high speed, the capacity of the planter increases. This means a smaller planter can cover the same area as a larger one. You benefit from increased field efficiency, as well as lower tractor horsepower requirements.

One planter instead of two

High-speed planting means that more acres can be covered with fewer row units. This drastically lowers costs for the planter itself. In some cases, it can also eliminate the need for another tractor and driver.

Capacity and precision combined

On traditional planters, the seed falls freely through the seed tube from the seed meter down to the soil. When vibrations intensify as speed is increased, the seed bounces in the seed tube, and much of the precision of the seed meter is lost. This is where the Tempo with its pressurized seed meter stands out from the crowd.

Planting precision

Skips and doubles are measured in the seed lab. Competitor data is an average value of several well-known competitors.

Skips and doubles

1% skips equals 0.6% yield loss, and 1% doubles equals 0.4% yield loss.

Yield loss percent

The capacity is calculated from 6 meters working width and an efficiency factor of 75%.
