  • Simple handling: the scraper does not have to be adjusted
  • Seed monitoring via grain sensor: information about the singulation accuracy
  • Individual control of every row: individual row switch off, SectionControl, VariableRate, tramline switching

What is the difference between AirVac and AirSpeed?


  • Reliable singulation via a vacuum
  • High precision for sowing speed up to 12 km/h
  • Maximum yields due to optimum embedding of the grains
  • Utmost flexibility for the most different crops
  • Increased time frame in case of wet sowing conditions
