Flexi-Coil presents the PD 5700 Precision Hoe Drill with single-shank design to allow both seed and fertiliser to be delivered through one shank, which provides improved residue flow, decreased risk of plugging and dragging and better performance in heavier, tougher residue. The PD 5700 Precision Hoe Drills are ideal for assisting crop farmers in improving the sowing and placing of seeds.
According to Steve Mulder, Flexi-Coil Australia’s General Manager, there has been a significant increase in the demand for precision seeding and tillage equipment. Customers have been showing a particular interest in Flexi-Coil’s PD 5700 Precision Hoe Drill.
“Growers are looking for the next level in precision, especially now that weather patterns are becoming so hard to predict,” says Mulder.
“Growers in some parts of the country are now dry sowing nearly every year to get the seeds in on time and maximise the sowing window, while others are sowing into good subsoil moisture. Either way, they need to get the depth right to maximise germination and establishment.”
Flexi-Coil’s PD 5700 Precision Hoe Drills, seeding and tillage equipment, are available in three working widths 15.2m, 18.3m and 21.3m. All three widths are available in 25.4cm or 30.5cm row widths and can be operated with tow-between and tow-behind air carts.
“Now is the time for growers to consider their equipment needs for summer crops or next year’s winter seeding program,” says Mulder.
