Strip till with fertilizing and seeding

Focus TD

TARGETED LOOSENING, TARGETED FERTILISATION, TARGETED SOWING

Characteristics
Features of Focus TD
  • Strip cultivation principle: soil is cultivated only in the seed rows
  • Combines deep soil loosening, fertiliser placement, seedbed preparation and sowing in one pass
  • Removal of harvest residues from the root area and precise and deep fertiliser-depot placement below the seed rows
  • Concave discs level and close slots
  • The hollow discs can be lifted to form the ridges
  • Packer for deep consolidation
  • Turbo Disc seed coulter for precise seed placement
  • 6 m working width
  • Power demand starting at 175 kW / 240 HP
Work Steps of Focus TD

Zone I: Soil cultivation

  • a) Deep soil loosening, exactly below the seed rows
  • b) Exact definition of the root area
  • c) Harvest residues are removed from the root area
  • d) Fertiliser-depot placement below the seed rows
  • e) Transport of wet soil into the germination horizon

Zone II: Concave discs
Can be adjusted to various modes of operation:

  • a) Levelling and closing slots
  • b) Forming ridges

Zone III: Tyre packer

  • a) Defined, deep consolidation
  • b) Creation of soil contact
  • c) Optimum seedbed preparation in front of the seed coulters

Zone IV: Seed coulters

  • a) Sowing into wet soil that is free of harvest residues
  • b) TurboDisc seed coulters for a precise seed placement

  • Abbildung Horsch Focus 6 TD
  • TerraGrip tines efficiently remove straw and lumps from the sowing horizon
  • Even in difficult climatic condition the Focus TD allows for a good emergence and an optimum development of the plant
  • Row spacings of 30 cm for rape seed and row crops and of 15 cm for crop sowing are possible
  • Hollow discs form ridges or level the soil according to the requirements
