FARMET FALCON PRO Features
Initial Pre-sowing Soil Levelling with spring tynes
Soil Pre-Processing Zone with either 24 discs on two rows OR 24 cultivator shanks on three rows. This prepares the soil prior to sowing.
24x Fertiliser Sowing Discs for use with Preparation Disc System only. Allows for Fertiliser Sowing depth down to 100mm
The packer with large low-pressure tyres ensuring low pressure on the soil and excellent tracing. Perfect surface levelling and compaction in front of the drill coulters.
Soil levelling and final spreading of plant residues before seed placement. The harrow effectively levels the soil surface and cleans the row space of plant residues
|Seedbed formation and seed placement zone. The double disc seeding coulters effectively create a compacted seedbed (V-groove) and precisely deposit the seed to the required depth.|
The side seed press zone. The copy wheel compresses the V- groove with the seed, causing the seed to squeeze sideways to the soil. There is loosened space above the seed for easy emergence of plants.
Seed cover and soil levelling zone. The integrated harrow ensures excellent seed coverage and precise soil surface levelling.
Seed & Fert is distributed through Farmet’s Distribution head system that ensures even & consistent seeding rates right across the machine
Farmet Seed Distribution System with Quick & Easy to change Rollers to allow for a wide range of seed & fert rates
Large Seed & Fertiliser Hopper of 6,000L with 60/40 split
Farmet Metering System
Farmet’s own simple to calibrate, accurate and super reliable metering system with easy to change rollers for different products and product rates make this the perfect choice for the Falcon Pro+ FERT.
