The Terracast Duo is a combined seeder and starter fertiliser system.  It has been developed to work with hybrid rape seed and micro granular nutrients.  The system features two hoppers sharing a common fan, venturi, and distribution assembly.

The hoppers are matched to typical application rates of hybrid rapeseed at 2-3kg/ha  and starter fertiliser at 15 kg/ha so that filling will be done at the same time for both hoppers.

The Terracast Duo can be specified with any number of outlets and is flexible if your increase the number of cultivator legs in the future by changing the distribution head.

Key Features

  • Separate seed and fertiliser hoppers
  • GPS speed sensor
  • Metering matched to forward speed
  • Fixed metering cartridges

Options

  • Flexible mounting
  • 12 - 15m boom
  • Flexible number of outlets

The Terracast GR is a granular version of the Terracast seeder unit.  It has an upgraded fan, metering system and distribution head compare to the standard Terracast V2 making it able to evenly distribute nematicide and starter fertiliser products.  It can also be used as a seeder with minimal modifications.

In the large picture above it is fitted to a precision maize drill.  The distribution head is mounted on the back of the Kverneland hopper and the individual outlets deliver the produce into the furrows.

The smaller picture features the Terracast GR on a bed former.  Here is being used to apply Mocap into the potato bed.  It has an upgraded fan and Mocap cartridge fitted.

Key Features

  • 200 litre hopper
  • Straightforward use and calibration
  • Suitable for seeds and granular products
  • Air delivery

Options

  • All weather cover
  • Powerful hydraulic fan

terracast v2

The Terracast V2 is a very popular and well regarded seeder unit from Techneat.  It has a proven pedigree being one of the best-selling seeders in recent seasons with great results in the field.  Users find it reliable and accurate.
 
Having a separate metering and distribution head has several advantages over metering into each outlet.  The Terracast V2 is easy to upgrade to a greater number of outlets by changing the distribution head.  Low seed rates, like those advised for hybrid varieties can easily be achieved because all the seed is going through the same metering system.

It can be fitted with a split hopper to apply slug pellets with OSR.  We also have a novel split venturi device that delivers the seed and pellet into separate air flows so that the pellets can be broadcast and the seed banded.

  • Simple calibration
  • Flexible number of outlets

Options
