Machinery manufacturer Kuhn showcased the versatility of its new Aurock seed drill at this summer’s Groundswell conservation agriculture event.

The two-day event in Hertfordshire was the first UK public working demonstration of the 6m drill. The triple-disc machine has been designed to offer a range of configurations so it can adapt to a broad range of soil types, rotations and cropping systems.

The Aurock brings more than 50 years of know-how to the market in a single machine, said Will Waterer, Kuhn’s non-inversion crop establishment expert. Kuhn launched its first direct drill in 1975 and has been developing its technology ever since, he added.

“The majority of farmers moving towards a conservation agriculture approach will go through a transition and require a drill that offers the ability to perform in varying conditions, from more conventional minimum tillage through to zero tillage,” said Mr Waterer.

The Aurock has an optional integral front crimping roller, choice of opening discs, triple-disc seeding unit, slanted press wheel and optional rear covering harrow. A central pivot between the seeding bar and the frame ensures accurate seed placement in all field conditions.

There are single or dual metering unit options, and the potential to add a third seeding permutation with the addition of Kuhn’s SH unit. The drill is ISOBUS-compatible, with adjustment of the modulate design possible through six independent automated sections.

The Aurock is also one of the first drills to be available with Kuhn’s Vistaflow universal tram-lining valve. It which monitors seed passage inside the seeding tubes to provide the ultimate in blockage detection and makes the drill easily adaptable to all tramline configurations.
