Establishing a crop is the most important part of the farmer’s job. The profitability of the farm depends primarily on the success of the crop and all the jobs that revolve around it. It is important to get the cultivation methods right and create the seedbed, whilst maintaining the crop during the year. Disregarding how the crop is initially planted and whether it is done correctly, can lead to the entire process being useless.
Drilling methods are varied, consequently the varied range of drills on sale today can be confusing. This is why we have provided some detailed information around our range in agricultural drills for sale.

The drill is probably the most important piece of machinery you’ll buy. The Drill you buy will depend on the type of tillage system that you use, whether it be a direct drill or strip-tillage system, or a drill and power harrow combination that is perfect for drilling after ploughing. Direct drills are very popular these days with the UK made drills like Mzuri and Claydon leading the way with direct tine drills.
Vaderstad revolutionised the drilling market in the ’90s with the rapid which brought high speed, accurate drilling to the fore. These type of drills are very popular today with models from most of the leading brands including; Horsch, Vaderstad, Kuhn and Kverneland. Another very common drill used today is the Horsch Sprinter which is a tine type drill that can be adapted for direct drilling.
Direct drilling is very attractive to most farmers as it removes the need for multiple cultivation passes to create a seedbed. The main benefits are cost reduction due to the reduced groundwork and soil heath as there is less traffic and soil disturbance helping the soil to work organically as nature intended. Unfortunately, it doesn’t work for everyone; in some situations, the soil or conditions mean that more cultivation is required to increase the germination of the crop.
To extend the life of your drill and to reduce damage how you store your drill after use is very important. There are 3 main actions to carry out:
Weather can be a real problem when drilling, particularly when the conditions are too wet. There is no definitive solution or perfect machine, but the best types of drill for these challenging conditions are mounted machines like a tine seeder or power harrow/drill combination. The tine seeder is effective due to the lightweight and open frame helping to cope with high trash and damp soil and also preventing it from sinking.
