How is the seed metered out, without the drill wheel on the floor?

Looks like seed and fert metering? And biosolids too!

If I had soil like that I wouldn't need fancy kit. Put the seed bag in the gateway and it would near enough plant itself.

That's because you only know half the story.
Contracting outfit, drill over 700 acres of rape so far but first time on fert.
Bio solids and it stinks!
Is it OSR being drilled? Is that 6m pass?
Yes rape, 5m pass

Loads round here in the fens already, outselling the wheeled version so far!! Its a shame other brands tracked offerings in the same class appear to be mostly over looked. I guess Fendt will do something similar in a year or two and the punters will all go and buy that instead :finger:
