Direct Seed drill Solá Ceres TM 2612

Spanish

Member
I put some pictures of my seeder Solá CERES tm 2612, grid seeder with a transport width of 3 meters and 4 meters of work. With a hopper of 2,400 liters dragged and that can handle perfectly with a tractor of 100-110 hp
I personally am very happy with the work of this machine. With 25 arms in 4 rows, straw residues pass very well, its depth control is quite good and the design of the planting tran is very successful.

It is a machine of a Spanish brand, I think it is sold in the UK because in the catalogs I think I have seen it

Do you direct drill or shallow cultivate first? Do you bale or chop your straw? I am worried if we had one for wetter weather sowing it would easily block how do you find it?

My area is wet. The important thing in direct sowing is to rotate. For sunflower I work with a chisel and I pass the michel tooth decompactor, the following year, since there is no cereal straw the seeder does not block straw. When sowing after cereal (wheat after wheat or oats after wheat) after harvesting, I pass the disc harrow at a shallow depth and apply about 30 units of nitrogen so that it decomposes better before planting. In the part of the SIE that there is to stop fallow, I sow vera and, in green, I kill and semi-burrow it with the harrow of discs and with the cereal straw of the previous year it makes organic matter.
When the straw has value, I also pack it to sell, but you have to know that the straw has many macro and micro-nutrients that at the price of fertilizers is money that flies if I pack it.
For me direct seeding is a good method, what happens is that you have to learn little by little

Thank you for your reply, thought exellent stubble management would be key, thinking of a second drill for latter drilling ahead of rain. The silt in our soil can seal the seed in the disc V and cause it to rot before it can germinate. Need to think on.

In these dates and more this year with so much rain, here, direct seeding does not work very well. This year, all that has been left without planting will be planted by sunflower, but I know that in the UK the sunflower does not work

Sorry for my writings but I write them with the Google translator, I hope you understand correctly

Thank you for your efforts, DD was more successful than a cultivation in the wet here last autumn the drill running on the green much cleaner than on soil.
