UST

The AS-UST Air Seeders are developed for conservation tillage sowings of all kind of winter cereals, OSR, forage seeds and cover crops.
 
The AS-UST planting unit with little wings allows getting a furrow by raising a layer of soil. This layer then drops off over the seed after the passage of the planting unit. This technology enables the seed to be planted without any contact with soil remains. Moreover, the little wings grant an efficient mechanical weeding.

  • Depth gauge wheels: 3 of 26x12-12 (UST 450), 4 of 26x12-12 (UST 600)
Advantages compared to no-till sowing with a double disc coulter

Less power used and reduction in consumption
With the AS-UST seeder and at equal working widths, lower traction power is required thanks to the number of coulter elements used. It is clear that less power translates into less consumption of fossil fuel.
 
Parts subject to wear
The disc seed planting system assembly subjects many working parts to wear and requires spare parts for correct machinery maintenance. Thanks to the simplicity of the construction of the AS-UST seeder coulter element, only a few spare parts are required, all of which are
reasonably priced.
 
In terms of agronomics
The no-till disc system which sows and/or cuts the crop residue with the subsequent mixing of the terrain together with seed planting limits the development of the root system and plant growth.
