AgriGold has announced its collaboration with Kinze Manufacturing Inc. to conduct on-farm testing of the world's first electric multi-hybrid concept planter in Iowa.
The multi-hybrid technology provides farmers with the ability to change the seed hybrid they are planting automatically as the planter moves through the field.
Kinze has developed a true multi-hybrid planter.
Two hybrids with different genetic backgrounds can be loaded into the planter and will switch on-the-go based on a multi-hybrid prescription map loaded into the monitor.
This planter can also deliver a variable-rate seeding prescription.
AgriGold is working with growers in Iowa using the planter this spring.
Here's a recap of Kinze's work on the multi-hybrid planter concept:
