Azurit 9

Pioneering single-seed drills

LEMKEN, an innovative manufacturer of sowing technology, has recently entered the single-seed drilling segment with its DeltaRow technology – an innovative approach to single-seed drilling. DeltaRow is essentially about maximising the surface area that is available to plants on the field, as it provides improved access to light, air and nutrients for increased yields.

The Azurit 9 single-seed drill is available with 4, 6 or 8 rows and 75 cm distance between rows.

  • Outstanding precision of the singling process even at high operating speeds due to low circumferential speeds of the perforated discs.
  • Stable seeding unit position due to row preconsolidation by means of trapeze packer rollers.
  • Easy seed logistics via a central seed hopper.

LEMKEN Delta Row

The Concept
[Translate to English - International:] DeltaRow
[] DeltaRow
[Translate to English - International:] Einzelreihe
[] Einzelreihe

A DeltaRow consists of staggered twin sub-rows that are spaced 12.5 cm apart. As the sub-rows are created synchronously, seeds are placed reliably in a triangular array.

  • Compared to single row technology, DeltaRow offers a 70% improvement in the area available to plants for growth, resulting in more water, nutrients and light for crops.
  • A fertiliser band is placed in the sub-root area inside the DeltaRow. This allows the seeding unit to be designed symmetrically.
  • The technology offers a clear advantage on erosion-prone fields, as better root systems are established in the soil compared to single rows.
Nutrients, water, light

DeltaRow delivers optimal distribution for each plant.

  • Optimal utilisation of under-root fertiliser
  • More nutrients, water and light for each plant
  • Rapid soil cover during juvenile development
  • Plant spacing helps prevent erosion
  • Greater weed suppression capacity in juvenile development
  • Better root growth and biomass development
Harvest

Crops can be harvested using conventional technology.

  • Both forage and combine harvesters can be used for easy harvesting.
  • This applies to both harvester headers that require a certain row spacing and those that work independently of row spacing.
