Forget what it looks like,
what can it do?
SeedMaster’s UltraPro II On-Frame Tank is more than meets the eye. In spite of it’s unique look, this seeding system can hold up to 550 bushels with proven cost savings through third party verification. When considering the input cost savings of $22.50/acre on canola, you could save up to $90,000 on 4000 acres.
SeedMaster Manufacturing engaged Prairie Agricultural Machinery Institute (PAMI) to test and validate the distribution uniformity of two 70 ft (21 m) air seeder configurations manufactured by SeedMaster; the Nova Cart and the UltraPro II. A total of eight treatments per air seeder configuration were completed, with three repetitions per treatment. Treatments included varying rates of wheat, canola, soybeans, and peas, with some treatments also including fertilizer. Germination and vigor tests were conducted on 12 of the 16 treatments.

All on-frame SeedMaster UltraPro ll tanks, including the 20-bushel front-mount tank, the rear-mounted 40- 190- and 340-bushel seed-only tanks, and the dual seed/fertilizer rear-mount tanks with up to 600-bushel capacity, feature a non-pressurized tank and come equipped with three different rollers for canola, cereals, pulses and fertilizer.
Each seed and fertilizer opener has an individual distribution line leading directly from the roller to each opener without going through manifolds. Seed is gently dropped into individual distribution lines, and low-speed fans gently move singulated seed directly to openers, spacing seed with remarkable accuracy. Our low-pressure fans eliminate the seed damage common with bulk metering systems that use high fan speeds and manifold distribution heads.
The UltraPro ll canola roller is the next evolution in SeedMaster’s individual row metering system. It features a ¼ inch roller for every opener, metering an equal amount of seed into each distribution line with unmatched precision, evenly spacing out the seed, and reducing uneven clumps and gaps that can occur with most bulk metering rollers. The UltraPro ll canola roller results in less seed damage and more uniform stand establishment. SeedMaster growers have found that they can lower canola seeding rates with confidence when using the UltraPro ll seeding system.
With precise metering of canola seed, the UltraPro ll canola roller not only helps farmers cut seed costs, but also brings important agronomic benefits. Uniformly spaced plants have equal access to moisture, nutrients, and sunlight, reducing inter-plant competition for these precious resources.
Accurate metering, individual row distribution, and precise seed placement with SeedMaster’s independent row openers, means many farmers are achieving maximum yield with reduced seeding rates. That’s why many top farmers are choosing SeedMaster’s UltraPro ll canola metering system.
