A look at the prototype of the medal-winning AGCO Xaver autonomous seeding unit at Agritechnica 2017. The system is programmable, and 12 units are the equivalent of one, 8-row planter. Ten units can plant about 2.5 acres per hour and they will be field tested in 2018, with production tentatively planned for 2020.
