Väderstad will introduce the new high-speed precision planter Tempo L 24 at an upcoming Canadian farm show this year.
“Now, the Tempo family is growing and we are introducing the all-new Tempo L 24,” says Mattias Hovnert, Senior Vice President Global Sales & Marketing at Väderstad.
The Tempo L 24 is designed for high capacity precision planting of small seeded crops, such as canola and sugar beets. It has 24 row units and is available with 17.7-, 18-, 19.7- or 20-inch row spacing. Each seed hopper holds 25 litres and the machine can be equipped for fertilizer metering with a 5,000 litre fertilizer hopper.
“Thanks to the Tempo seed meter with the patented PowerShoot technology, each seed is granted the exact same start in all conditions. Since PowerShoot takes full control of the seed all the way down to the soil; gravity, vibrations and slopes are removed from the equation. Thereby, Tempo delivers an unmatched precision at very high speed,” says Hovnert.
The Tempo L 24 will go into production in November 2018.
