Compact, manoeuvrable and bang up to date. Not a bad summary of the AVR Ceres 440. By combining proven planting elements with hydraulically driven metering, the 440 can deliver infinitely variable spacing and be set up to either work with soil maps to match in-field variations or be controlled manually on the move via ISObus.
