Planting technology - Belt planter | GB 330

3-row, 3 t hopper, planting more potatoes per square meter

The belt planter is the right choice to plant non calibrated seed potatoes, various sizes or longish varieties. Higher drive speed is possible with appropriate sizes as with a cup planter. The GB 330 is especially designed for 3-row planting into beds. Compared to the 2-row bed method, it is possible to plant more potatoes on the same area and to distribute them more evenly. The result is a more even growth of the tubers and thus an increased quota of marketable crops. Fertiliser box, chemicals equipment and GRIMME Flow-Board are available as an option.

Flow-Board

Steerable wheels offer advantages on slopes

Fertiliser box

Tank system and fertiliser box

Benefits

  • 3-row planting into the bed for more marketable crops. more tubers per hectare are planted with the third row in the bed, thus realizes a better use of the available field and increased output per hectare. the third row also creates a different distance between the tubers thus ensures a more even growth and therefore more marketable crop compared to the traditional or quad system (two rows of potatoes in a ridge).
  • Driving speed of up to 10 kmph realize a high output, depending on the crop size and variety, planting distance, machine equipment and soil conditions
  • Tubers per hectare or planting distance setting from the terminal
  • Fewer seed potatoes are required with the automatic row shut off of the planting elements with Section Control.
  • Planting element levelling of +/- 7° at slopes in drive direction, for a precise singling of seed potatoes
  • Uniform growing through constant soil covering of the tubers via hydraulic depth control of the furrow opener and automatic shaping board steering
  • The GRIMME nozzle system ensures complete dressing of the tuber, and the GRIMME tank system enables a safe handling as well as a proper crop protection
  • Granulated fertilising left and right of the tuber with the GRIMME fertiliser box
  • Option to applicate micro granular directly into the furrow for an optimum growing start or for seed protection
  • Ideal for bed planting and a accurate centre deposit even at slopes in combination with the GRIMME Flow-Board
  • Hydraulic steering axle for high agility and less drifting
