Our drilling machinery allows for a skilful and precise measurement and distribution of the seeds resulting in a more effective process.
We have a precision maize drill to ensure that the seeds are drilled at the correct spacing and depth, this allows us to work at an efficient forward speed to be able to get the land drilled in a timely manner. We use GPS technology to ensure minimal overlap and accurate application. We can drill multiple varieties and add standard or micro fertiliser as we drill, if you wish.
