The Technotill Seeding System:
Applications and Benefits:

The seeding tool consists of a narrow opener with a seedtube attached to the front of a C-shank, and a Precision Packer bolted behind each shank.

The Technotill Seeding System may be used on any heavy-duty cultivator that uses a heavy C-shank and heavy-duty trip mechanism (Minimum 450 lbs).

The Technotill Seeding System is used when seeding cereals, oil seeds, pulses and grasses.

Any fertilizer may be used with this system: granular, liquid or anhydrous ammonia. A blend of fertilizer can be placed with the seed and, after the seed row is packed, additional nitrogen can be sidebanded away from the seed.

The Technotill Seeding System is used to direct seed into sod.

The revolutionary benefit of the Precision Packer is control of the amount of moist soil packed over the seed at the bottom of the furrow. Precision packing means that 1/4-1/2 inch of moist soil is packed over the seed.
