Accurate placement of the seed

Precise sowing is very important, in order to avoid over- and under-sowing in critical areas. A remedy for accurate placement is offered by the half-side control, which reduces the overall working width to half so that a significant saving is achieved, especially in wedge shaped fields and on the headland. The two halves of the drill each correspond to one controllable part-width section.


If the operating terminal facilitates Section Control, such as GPS-Switch part-width section control from AMAZONE, the part-width sections are activated completely automatically and in relation to the GPS position. Once a field has been created, and then in automatic mode, the driver can concentrate fully on the operation of the towing vehicle, since the part-width sections are switched automatically in wedge shaped fields and on headlands.

Benefits of automatic part-width section control: 

  • Stress relief on the driver 
  • Increase in precision especially at night or at higher speeds 
  • Fewer overlaps and gaps 
  • Saving on input costs 
  • Less crop damage and less environmental pollution
