It is becoming increasingly difficult to operate successfully as a farmer or contractor: climate change, water scarcity, the cost of inputs, a shortage of skilled labour and strict environmental protection requirements – here, up to date agricultural planning, including efficient agricultural machinery, is very important in order to produce affordable food of good quantity and quality despite all the adversities.

Ever tighter time windows for sowing require higher outputs, the optimum operational combinations and the maximum precision in order to place the seed at exactly the right depth and at the ideal time. This ensures uniform and gapless plant emergence - especially in single-seed sowing such as maize, sunflowers, oilseed rape and other crops. 

Nevertheless: extreme temperatures and drought can always threaten the crop and reduce potential yields. This can be remedied by making better use of the subsoil by encouraging the young roots to grow deeper through appropriate under-root fertilisation. Precise placement of fertiliser in the correct horizon below or next to the seed also saves on fertiliser usage, increasing and prolonging nutrient availability, as the higher soil moisture content allows better, long-term nutrient mobilisation, especially with phosphate fertilisers. Tight nutrient balances can also be maintained, whilst, at the same time, increasing yield.

The efficient and yield-increasing use of finite resources at the ideal time is the aim of precision seeding on large farms and by contractors. And this is precisely why AMAZONE has developed the Precea-TCC trailed precision air seeder in working widths of 6, 9 and 12 m: Precea 6000, 9000 and 12000-TCC.
