PRODUCT DISTRIBUTION VARIABILITY
SeedMaster testing on industry manifolds found that row-to-row variance is between 20 to 23%, meaning product distribution could be 10% above or below the targeted rate.
That comes with a cost:
Huge Variation Found in Air Bulk Metering System
SeedMaster is the first to start the discussion about the huge variation in air bulk metering systems.
SEEDMASTER'S SEEDING SYSTEM CUTS VARIANCE IN HALF
Despite the competition’s claims that their seeding systems are “precise and accurate,” the truth is: they have seed and fertilizer variance of at least 20% across the width of the toolbar.
Over and under-applying seed and fertilizer directly impacts your bottom-line through excessive input costs, and overall crop yield and quality.
Instead of hiding the problem, SeedMaster has made huge strides in solving it.
A new Tunable Tower™ located within the distribution manifold is now standard on all Nova Ready SeedMaster toolbars. Working in conjunction with the XeedSystem, product flow through each run can be identified in real time. The Tunable Tower can be adjusted to balance product distribution between rows down to about 10%. That’s 5% below or above the target rate.
The XeedSystem can measure product quantity flow through each run.
THE EVOLUTION IN PRECISION GRANULAR METERING
The UltraPro II raises the bar again with on-frame tanks that provide flexibility in seed, fertilizer and granular inoculant applications:
