MZURI PRO-TIL 3 linkage
INNOVATIVE STRIP-TILL MACHINE
Mzuri Pro-Til tills only thin strips of soil, applies fertilisers over the whole strip, places seeds in it, at a set and constant depth, providing the ideal environment for quick germination, plant growth and high, perfect quality yields.
The Mzuri Pro-Til technology consists in tilling only thin strips, in which seeds are sown and then plants grow, and later post-harvest residue from the first harvest is left in the untilled inter-rows. This retains moisture and limits organic matter losses, which has a positive impact on the soil’s structure and fertility. Multiple passes of machines for ploughed or ploughless farming lead to soil degradation, excessive compaction, quick mineralisation of organic matter and have a destructive impact on biological life in the soil. Strong compaction interferes with the air-water equilibrium, cutting off easily accessible oxygen and nutrients from the roots of cultivated plants. Mzuri Pro-Til has been designed to assure tillage, fertilisation and sowing in one pass directly over a stubble field. The tilling teeth and wheels for compacting loosened soil are staggered over two rows, which allows even large volumes of post-harvest trash to be moved between them. Thanks to a hydraulic system the tilling teeth and coulters of each sections exercise a uniform pressure on the soil. This assures an equal tilling and sowing depth, as well as excellent contact between the seeds and soil. Seed dosing is handled by electric motors with speed control and gears driving seed rollers. Choosing the appropriate roller allows virtually any type of seeds to be sown. Steering is easy and control precise. It’s enough to push an electric button, weigh the collected seeds and enter the amount in the computer’s control panel. The RDS Artemis computer provides control over sowing during work and has all the functions necessary for controlling and monitoring the fertilisation and seeding process.
Pro-Til Xzact is a new MZURI unit to precise corn, soya and sunflower sowing in strip-till technology. It is available in 3-metre and 4-metre versions or by the assembly of sections in the classic MZURI PRO-TIL SELECT seeder. The unit can be easily transformed back to the standard model in order to sow wheat, rape and other plants.
