A prerequisite for the successful germination of the seed is an intensive contact between seed and soil. Just as important is an even, stripe-free spread of the seed. All these important requirements for the successful overseeding are met by the TERRA SEED.
For the seed bed preparation special spring tines are used which open up the soil surface. The stirring shaft integrated into the galvanized seed container is driven via a V-belt by the low-pressure tires of the overseeding unit. This ensures an even flow of the seed.
The short distance between seed discharge opening and turf of only 140 mm minimizes the risk that the seed will be blown away by the wind. For a quick setting of the discharging volume or for a quick change of seeds the overseeding unit is equipped with a calibration trough and turning crank.
The subsequent seed brush, which is parallelogram-suspended, brushes the seed into the seed grooves. The trailed seed roller with low-pressure tires presses the seed into the soil promoting an intensive contact between seed and soil which is necessary for an optimal germination. The low pressure tires with self-cleaning effect prevent materials from accumulating on the wheels.
