The versatile large area seed drill Primera DMC

For flexible arable farming:
Primera DMC in working widths of 3 m, 4.5 m, 6 m, 9 m and 12 m

No matter which arable farming system is utilised, the Primera DMC performs excellently under all conditions. With its unique chisel opener, it achieves, on pre-cultivated land or when direct sowing, the highest quality regarding placement accuracy and seed embedment. This applies even to fields cultivated through non-inversion tillage such as after green manure, or where large amounts of organic matter from the previous crop lie, which can normally cause trouble when sowing. Also inadequate soil tillage, poor incorporation of organic material and bad levelling of the fields can have a negative effect on the performance of the seed placement and the embedding of the seed. The Primera DMC manages all these challenges perfectly. The chisel opener safely clears the seed furrow of organic matter, excellently follows uneven soils and always provides the right coulter pressure, making for the best performance in seed placement and seed embedding. The simultaneous application of fertiliser is available on the Primera DMC as an option. The targeted placement of mineral fertiliser directly into the seed furrow helps young crops to develop quickly and healthily to reach deeper soil water resources and, in this way, they are more robust to face heavy drought.

The high performance seed drill – especially for low rainfall regions and large acreages

The parallelogram guided sowing openers of the AMAZONE Primera DMC with their ‘on-grip’ DURA chisel tips ensure a clean seed furrow for better soil contact and the most accurate maintenance of the placement depth. The following double roller provides good re-coverage of the seed furrow. Optimum seed/soil contact and accurate sowing depth are preconditions for uniform crop establishment. The REVOMAT overload safety device ensures a damage-free sowing operation even in stony soils.

The seed is covered up by the hoop ring rollers, the Exact harrow and the Roller harrow. The combined application of seed and fertiliser is available as an option.

In some cases, the plough cannot be completely dispensed with. The Primera DMC can also be used in this conventional process after the seedbed has been prepared.

Advantages of the Primera DMC:

  • Profitable crop production in times of increasing production costs and changing farm sizes
  • Fulfils all environmental considerations and reduces nitrate leaching
  • Reduces machinery and operating costs
  • Conservation and soil saving cultivation system
  • Reduces soil erosion
  • Reduces soil water losses
  • Stabilises soil structure
  • Higher straw degradation and drainage ability

The filling auger

Quick and comfortable filling

In order to be able to fill the Primera DMC with both seed and fertiliser, AMAZONE offers a hydraulically-driven filling auger. Using this system the filling time is kept down to just 15 minutes meaning that the output of the drill is even further extended.

The two-piece filling auger is fixed to the back of the machine. The bottom section of the auger and the filling hopper can be quickly and easily folded up for work and transport. Thanks to the swivelling chute at the top end of the auger, the seed corn can be optimally distributed over the full width of the seed hopper.

Due to a top lip height of only 70 cm on the filling funnel, the filling auger can be easily filled from a tipping trailer. The trailer just needs to be equipped with a slide and a chute so that the filling operation can be optimally regulated. As an option, AMAZONE also offers lorry trailer outlets.

Drive and operation of the filling auger is carried out via the hydraulic system on the tractor. The tractor should have a hydraulic output of at least 50 l/min and requires a pressure-free return.
