For the past decade or so, Horsch has taken a vacuum-based approach to seed singling in its Maestro precision drills. But time moves on, farms want to work faster and a whole new high-speed market segment has evolved. Horsch’s response is the CX and RX series. Marked out by the ‘X’ suffix, AirSpeed metering and the prospect of working at up to 16km/hr, these machines will be available during 2021. From then, vacuum and pressure singling technologies will continue side by side in the company’s line-up. The logic is that both have their advantages, their drawbacks and place.
