Catch crop sowing technology

Catch crop sowing and soil tillage in one operational pass

Amazone Kompaktscheibenegge mit GreenDrill

To enable the sowing of catch crops directly or together with the soil tillage operation, AMAZONE offers the Green-Drill seeder box. It can be combined as well with the Catros, CatrosXL compact disc harrows and Certos heavy compact disc harrows as well as Cenius mulch cultivators, KG rotary cultivators or KE rotary harrows. The seed is distributed evenly by the spreader plates.
The GreenDrill seed hopper holds 200 l, or alternatively 500 l, and is easily accessed via the loading steps provided. Within the metering system located underneath the seed hopper, is a seed shaft that is equipped, depending on the type of seed and the application rate with either fine or normal seed wheels. The drive to the seed shaft is electric and that of the blower fan either electric or hydraulic.

Comfortable Operation
For the control of the seeder, two computer versions are available with differences in the level of operational comfort.
In its basic format, the seed shaft and the blower fan as well as the rotational speed of the seed shaft can be
adjusted via the 3.2 in-cab terminal. In the Comfort execution, the 5.2 terminal offers an additional selection menu to assist in the calibration test and to indicate the forward speed, the finished area and the working hours. The seed shaft speed automatically matches to the changing forward speeds if the on-board computer is connected to the 7-pin tractor signal socket.
