Rademacher Farms, Illinois

Charlie and Matthew use the HORSCH Maestro 3620 SV with seed lock wheels and in-furrow rear liquid nozzles. They farm 750 acres of no-till and 1750 acres of conventional land, with a 50/50 split between beans and corn.

For corn, they plant at a variable rate between 34,000 and 44,000 seeds per acre at a depth of 2 to 2 1/2 inches and 7.5 mph on conventional acres, and 6 mph on no-till acres due to the trash wheels. For beans, they plant at a population of 120,000 per acre at a depth of 1-2 inches and at 8.5 mph.

Charlie and Matthew say, "The Maestro SV has the most standard features and shines with accurate seed drop at a wide range of speeds. It also has a low amp draw when running variable rates and standard hydraulic downforce for different soil types. The machine is very well built."
