Over the two days of Cereals 2017 in Boothby Graffoe, AMAZONE will be giving away a Bfs FlowCheck worth £39.99 to 10 lucky visitors to their stand each day. These nifty Bfs FlowChecks make sprayer calibration a doddle; irrespective of nozzle size, and with each individual FlowCheck calibrated for accuracy, you are able to check the output of any one of 8 different nozzle sizes quickly, simply and reliably.
The existing Catros range has been supplemented at the top and the bottom by 6 new models of either mounted or trailed compact disc harrow. The concept of creating an early stale seedbed directly behind the combine by shallow working stubbles with a purpose-built tool that ensures full surface disturbance, and yet at a minimal depth of soil movement, is fast becoming one of the main drivers in grass weed control.
The trend latterly when it comes to drill combinations has been very much in favour of pneumatic metering systems. Larger hopper capacities and the introduction of electrically-driven metering systems with push-button calibration and automatic GPS-based headland shut-off systems have been the main driving factors.
However, the simplicity of a conventional seed drill with its lack of fan and improved rearward visibility still holds some appeal to many end-users.
The new 3 metre working width Cataya conventional drill combination goes a long way to bridging the gap between the two systems with its new 1270 litre seed
hopper, Precis electric half-side GPS-controlled metering system, SmartCenter work station with handwash facilities and the new TwinTeC double disc coulter.
