Due to customer demand Mzuri have developed the ‘Select’ range of Pro-Til drills capable of drilling narrow or wide row spacing.
“The benefits of only drilling with a wide spacing are that you can drill into immense amounts of surface residue, providing an optimum environment that allows oil seed rape plants grow to their full potential. The light interception enables the plant to produce up to an extra tonne per hectare” says Martin Lole from Mzuri.
The new machine Pro-Til 3T Select (working width at 3 metres), is being shown at LAMMA 2016 for the first time on STAND G39.
The flexibility at a touch of a button achieves several valuable benefits says Martin. “It enables operators to use the machine conventionally for all combinable crops with the 9 legs option and at the touch of a button the 5 legs option can be selected to drill oil seed rape, cover crops, and maize.”
“This ensures the seed has ideal conditions in which to germinate, so it can exploit the restructured zone to establish a healthy root structure, which enables it to fully access the soils moisture and nutrient reserves.”
The machine is equipped with the RDS Isocan Drill Management touch screen and is suitable for 180 – 220hp tractors.
