Kinze® Manufacturing, Inc. announces a new planter for sugarbeets – the 3700, 24-row, 22-inch model. Available with bulk fill seed hoppers or conventional hoppers, the 3700 allows sugarbeet farmers to maximize field efficiency with the Kinze bulk fill system.
“The Kinze EdgeVac® vacuum meter can singulate pelletized sugarbeet seed with up to 99.1 percent accuracy,” says Susanne Kinzenbaw Veatch, Kinze vice president and chief marketing officer. “We’re proud to offer this outstanding accuracy to sugarbeet growers.”
The 3700 model features:
Other available options include an electric clutch package to minimize seed overlap and total seed input costs, half-rate (2 to 1) drive reduction, a rear trailer hitch to allow farmers to pull fertilizer tanks behind, and pneumatic down pressure to create on-the-go down pressure adjustment to match field conditions.
This planter also can be used to plant corn and soybeans in 22-inch rows for increased mechanical efficiency with all three crops.
