The planter has a 1,300 gallon granulated fertilizer tank and row units feature versatile 100-liter tanks for seeding a variety of crops including corn, cotton or sugarbeets. The system can be controlled by a tablet in the tractor cab, run through the company’s E-Services control center. The system allows for wireless control of seeding population, depth control and down pressure. “Also new on this model is the hydraulic weight transfer that can add and take off pressure,” says Philip Westman, sales manager for Eastern Europe, who added that the planter would be introduced to the Canadian market in spring 2017.
