Turn any machine into a precise seed drill

BioDrill is a mountable small seeder that can be fitted on Väderstad cultivators and seed drills, further improving the machine’s versatility. 

BioDrill is equipped with a precise radar controlled metering system, ensuring an even distribution over the entire working width. This accuracy is fully measurable to a full-scale seed drill, important when drilling low seed rates or cover crop mixtures with varying seed sizes.

BioDrill provides excellent conditions for a small-seeded crop, at the same time as reducing seed costs and retaining soil moisture.
