Visser launches new pre-programmable drum seeder

The next step in seeding is menu controlled seeding. Visser International Trade & Engineering designed a new drum seeder which gives the grower the opportunity to pre-program the settings for their specific seed and or tray size.

The drum seeder, type XL is a fully automatic drum seeder with a high capacity of approximately 800-1000 trays per hour. All settings, per tray or seed type, are stored in the computer. Including the amount of vacuum needed in the seeding drum, all setting are constantly monitored and controlled for optimum seeding results. By using the touch screen display all settings can be made by the operator. You can get back to your latest settings in just one touch. The number of programs that can be saved in the computer is unlimited by using auxiliary storage devices.
