The Kverneland u-drill plus complements the product group of the universal seed drill combination available in 3.0m, 4.0m rigid and 4.0m and 6.0m folding. The u-drill plus carries out seedbed preparation, levelling, reconsolidation, seeding, fertilising and pressing in one pass - featuring high efficiency, large performance and high hectare output as main characteristics. The “plus” stands for the extra feature of the grain and fertiliser version to apply either grain and fertiliser or, alternatively, two different sorts of seeds at the same time. This has been achieved by the divided hopper equipped with two metering devices.
In order to balance the shorter vegetation phase, the phosphoric fertiliser application supports the initial germination and development of the plants in the most efficient way. In trials of spring sown crops, yields have shown increases up to 25% compared to crops where the fertiliser has been applied by other methods.
