Väderstad Tempo V 12 rows in field during sunrise

Tempo V 6-12

Maximum versatility

The Tempo V mounted high-speed planter is available with 6 to 12 row units, including odd numbers. The ability to use the same machine for multiple crops often means that two traditional planters can be replaced. This maximizes versatility to lower your cost per acre. It can also band granular fertilizer at high speed when used in combination with the FH 2200 front hopper.

Zone 1 - Fertilizer placement (option)

The Tempo is able to band fertilizer using the FH 2200 front hopper. The fertilizer coulters maintain a high level of precision even at high speeds.

Fertilizer kit

Zone 2 - Row cleaners (option)

Row cleaners are optional on the Tempo. They're used to remove crop residue, clods and rocks ahead of the disc openers. The need to use row cleaners is much higher when planting into no-till conditions or other fields with large amounts of residue.

Floating row cleaners

Zone 3 - Seed placement

With the Tempo, planting can be done at very high speeds without compromising precision and accuracy. The seed meters ensure perfect placement for every seed, which is key to maximizing yield.

Zone 4 - Closing

After the seed is planted, the closing wheels cover the seed trench, creating perfect conditions for germination. Several industry-standard, third-party closing wheel solutions can also be used, depending on the needs of each farm.

Narrow closing wheel 1"

Wide closing wheel 2"
