Model System 3 - Natural Seeder
From Natural Seeder
This is the top-of-the-line Natural Seeder model, the fastest and most versatile of our Natural Seeder systems. The Seeder and Coverer are controlled by a Microprocessor PLC to synchronise the tray with the Seeder. Set-up times when changing trays are exceptionally fast, and this model will sow all types of tray from plug trays to thin plastic flats and packs. The height of the conveyor is adjustable to match up with most proprietary filling and watering lines. Another bonus with this model is the multiple sow feature which can be set to sow 1, 2 or 3 seeds per cell before the conveyor advances to the next line. A Dwell function is also incorporated. As with all models variable speed is standard. A domestic single-phase electrical supply is also required for this model.
The Roller Dibbler is a simple but effective device for dibbling the cells of plug trays prior to seeding. Mounted on a base board or conveyor, the plug trays are passed under a roller which has dibbler pegs protruding to produce neat, uniform depressions. Roller Dibblers are available for most popular plug trays.
This unit provides a quick, easy and reliable method of covering seeds sown by the seeder, with vermiculite. The amount dispensed is easily varied by two adjustments according to the vermiculite grade and depth required. The coverer is air operated and synchronised with the Seeder and Belt Conveyor.
