The Piket No Till Gravity Tine Planter was intended for general planting of grain and grass seed in a No Till environment. It was specifically adapted for the planting of less harsh conditions.
Conservation Agriculture is a farming system that aims to preserve and improve the soil by implementing no tillage planting, crop rotation and cover crops. Farm equipment must be able to handle uncultivated soil and crop residues.
The Piket No Till Gravity Tine Planter was designed for this purpose.
The demand for this planter comes mainly from the commercial farm where a general planter is needed to plant a variety of seed. It is very popular where different types of grass, small grain and lucerne are planted for grazing.
For medium size farms this is the ideal all-round planter for wheat, oats, grass, canola, soya beans, etc.
The planter is towed and works well in smaller irrigation camps due to its small turning radius. But it works just as well on open dry land.
