Farmax has developed in early spring 2020 the Farmax Ringseeder because of a rising demand on the farm contracting market.
Because of their input Farmax has been able to develop a seeder which connects better to the wishes of the market, namely; denser seeding, putting the seed before the ringrolers, more pressure on the rollers and a smoother seedbed.
The double ringrolers who are attached to the Farmax Ringseeder spreads the seed via a seedbar over the whole working width. The Ringseeder is attached via a parallel guidance to the power harrow. Because of this, the power harrow leans on both ringrolers which ensures a greater pressure on these rolers. This means that soil moisture is better retained around the seed. In addition, the seed is also brought better into contact with the moist soil. The Ringseeder is also equipped with folding side rollers. These side rollers ensure an even seed bed between the work passes, which blends better into each other.
The Ringseeder is mounted more compactly on the power harrow due to its parallel guidance, which means that the machine hardly drags in the bends during the sowing work. This also has the advantage that the weight is mounted closer to the tractor.
The experience of farm contractors is that customers can easily work the crop stubble themselves using a cultivator, after which the farm contractor sows the field with the sowing combination. In addition, there is no need to plow or level out the field before using the Ringseeder to create an even seedbed. Another additional advantage is the way of sowing. The seed falls between the power harrow and the ring rollers, without using a harrow or coulter. As a result, crop residues are not taken along during sowing and the seed pattern is not disturbed.
