“The main reason we changed to VOS was because of how it distributes the fertilizer. Alternative openers just spray the fertilizer on the soil after the coulter. I wanted the fertilizer to be under the seed or at least under the soil. VOS does just this, plus I can go straight from rape seed to beans without changing anything on the drill leg.”

  • Less draft and reduced wear rates at a lower cost per hectare.
  • Even crop establishment due to great consistency in seed placement.
  • Increased moisture retention.
