Until today, we did not recommend using our small grain seeders for seeding beans.
Wishing to develop our drills and their functions to meet your expectations, we worked on new generation rolls which would be able to sow beans. It is now possible to do so, and we did some tests that we wish to share with you.
We have received two samples from one of our clients et we have added two more:
With the J5-6 roll, one seed is selected. Brush settings: sligthly raised.
With the G roll, one or two seeds are selected, brush settings: raised by 2-3 mm. With the C roll, one or two seeds are selected, brush settings :raised by 2-3mm.
With the J5-6 roll, one or two seeds are selected at the same time, brush settings : slightly raised.
With the J5-6 roll, there are some seeds missing, even with the brush raised to the maximum. With the N6 roll, brush raised to the maximum, we get doubles, with the brush raised to mid-height: we get about a seed at a time.
