HORSCH SPRINTER NT
Horsch Sprinter NT
DESIGNED FOR DIRECT SEEDING – SPECIFICALLY FOR AUSTRALIAN CONDITIONS
Designed for direct seeding the Horsch Sprinter NT is ideal for broad acre farming across Victoria, New South Wales and South Australia. This Horsch air seeder and tine seed drill is specifically designed for direct seeding in areas with continental climate – with low rainfall during the growth phase. It’s new tine system with exact depth control lets you put the seeds exactly there where you want them to be.
The Sprinter NT with 15 and 24-metre working width stands for maximum efficiency. The HORSCH NT chisel coulter sowing technology allows for a high amount of fine earth in the seed row and for the placement of the seed in a so-called ”open furrow“. The seed coulter forms a furrow and removes lumps and organic material from the seed horizon. The seed is placed into this furrow and fixed in the wet soil by the press wheel. Thus, very good emergence is achieved even under extreme climatic conditions. Sowing is possible into cultivated as well as into uncultivated soil. The seed drill is ideal for no-till farming. The Sprinter 24 NT achieves maximum efficiency due to its working width and the corresponding seed hopper SW 17 000 SD with a hopper capacity of 17 000 litre. The 15-metre wide version has some particular characteristics: Seed waggon and seed unit are a more compact unit.
We have tested and demonstrated the Horsch Sprinter NT in several demo days, most recently at our >> Tillage Drive Days at eight locations in the Corowa and Shepparton areas. Here the first results on >> Facebook.
