Lemken has launched a number of new cultivation products for next season.
On the drill front, the company has launched a new 4-6m Solitair 25, with 3,000-litre plastic hopper, separate electrical drive for each metering unit and a new hydraulically-controlled tramlining system with no seed return. The firm has also entered the precision drill market, with the twin-row Azurit. The machine uses pairs of residue wheels to clear a seed furrow path, a fertiliser coulter which places fertiliser between the twin rows, and a trailing trapeze packer roller to close the fertiliser groove for pre-consolidation. Coulters stagger the seed in the pre-consolidated furrows, with the twin rows then closed by a v-shaped pressure roller.
