Planting unit operation

The disc cuts through the roots and plant material to reduce blockage of the tine.

Right behind the cutting disc runs the tine, which loosens the soil. The fertiliser is placed directly by the tine at any desired depth. The seed can then be placed at a separate depth through an adjustable seed boot. Both seed and fertiliser are fed through pipes from the metering units to the seed boot and tine.
