Seeding technology - mechanical precision seeder | MATRIX 1200

Mechanical precision seeder, 12-rows, row width 45, 48 or 50 cm, for seeding of beets, canola and chicory

MATRIX 1200 is a mechanical precision seeder for 12-rows, for seeding of beets, canola and chicory. For short setup times the 6 m wide frame of the machine can be folded to less than 3 m width for transportation. The inner filled cellular wheels are driven via electro motor, this technology enables an exact, but easy to vary distance of the seed within the seed-row. The seeding unit is mounted in a parallelogram, so that a precise depth control is ensured. The machine is suitable for conventional seeding (after ploughing), for mulch seeding (reduced tillage) and for direct seeding (no tillage).

Low drop height for precise seeding into the seed furrow

Electrical single row drive for variable seeding distances, Clever Planting and Section Control

Seeding of up to 18 ha, without descending from the tractor, by use of seed boxes with a content of 1.5 units of beet seed - high acreage output, low downtimes.

Simple and clear operation via ISOBUS capable operator terminal CCI 1200 (option)

Variety

  • Thanks to the wide range of different options the MATRIX is suitable for many applications
  • The equipment for mulch seeding and direct seeding is standard
  • Short setup times due to the hydraulically foldable frame
  • Seeding unit guided in a parallelogram for an exact depth control
  • The electrical drive of the cellular wheel enables to switch off seeding of each single row at headlands and in key beds (Section Control), further more a variable seeding distance within the row is possible
  • Precise placement of the seed-pill due to the short distance of dropping
  • Seed hopper with 10 l capacity, 1.5 units of sugar beet seed, leads to high area efficiency and less downtimes
  • The precise placing of the seed is permanently monitored by an optical sensor and is displayed to the driver on a terminal
  • Due to the integrated ISOBUS - control, the machine can be operated with any ISOBUS-compatible terminal
  • Integrated spraying track switch-off
  • Clever Planting: Enables to adapt/modify the seeding distance in the seed rows beside the spraying tracks, to obtain a uniform growth of plants
