Brand Studio for Plantium
Those who work the land know that time is worth it, that is why speed is a fundamental element to obtain the greatest benefit. But, by itself, it is not enough: precision can make a difference too. That is why the greater capacity for singulation becomes the key. What is this very specific and determining concept for sowing time about? It is the capacity in percentage of the seed distributor to always deliver a single seed at low and high RPM, so as to optimize inputs with less margin of waste.
ecuRow® – 14 km / h Precision Sowing
The key to success when sowing
A techno ally
To help with this arduous task and potentially increase performance, come ecuRow®, an electro-pneumatic dispenser for coarse grains that allows to obtain a 99% singulation at very high speed.
Thanks to its process of retrofitting, this high-performance technology is available for all models and brands of seeders, new or used, and allows greater efficiency thanks to the saving of inputs and the perfect distribution. In addition, it doubles the working speed since it allows to cover twice the surface of a seeder in the same time, and achieves an optimal handling of curves in addition to automatic furrow-by-furrow cutting, in order to work properly even in micro-environments, since it allows load various precision maps. This benefit is appreciated, for example, in the work on the headers: when avoid duplicate distribution of seedsNot only does it save on raw material, but it also avoids wear and tear due to overproduction in that area of the land.
How does ecuRow® work?
This system patented by Plantium SA allows each furrow to be worked like an intelligent seeder, without the need for a seed hauler, at a speed of up to 14 or 18 km / h while maintaining the same precision. In addition, it works with an electric motor and a positive pressure mechanism: a simple system for delivering the seed from the distributor to the ground at a speed of 50 km / h, as if it were a blowgun, and prevents the rebound of the grain in its drop. Next, a wheel exerts pressure on the seeds to ensure their fixation in the desired space. In this way, the overlapping of sown areas is avoided, which results in greater seed savings, and a perfect distribution of plants is achieved, without skipping or duplication.
This adequate use of space optimizes the sowing result and provides a higher yield at harvest time: a increase of 0.51 tn / ha (255 tons every 500 ha). All this process, monitored thanks to sensors that can be controlled from the harvester through a console at the time of doing the task, allows absolute management of the sowing process.
