Lemken section control: It's all in the timing

When we were carrying out our 2020 cultivator drill group test, five of the eight models had a section control function, so we took the opportunity to see how good they were.

During last year’s drill section control test, the Lemken Compact Solitair 9/600KH switched sections much too early at the headland, regardless of whether it was angled or straight. With the cover crop mix, the four-section Lemken drill returned the least favourable results of the five machines tested.
