Innovative grassland maintenance
Modern electronics can replace the various methods of approximation in grassland management too. This is because, just like in arable farming, site-specific cultivation promises more precise use of seed and fertiliser.
The Isaria plant sensor from Fritzmeier Umwelttechnik in combination with the GREEN.RAKE expert and the TERRA.ROLLER expert as well as the sowing unit with SEED.CON control, ensure precise grassland reseeding. During grassland reseeding, the plant sensor regulates the seed rate according to the plant density. So the grass seeds land exactly where they are needed. This enables slow-growing grasses to establish themselves better and gaps in the stock to be closed more quickly.
This permanent rejuvenation of the grass cover improves the yield and thus increases the quality of the forage.
The GREEN.RAKE expert can be adapted to your specific soil conditions. Optimum contour guidance is not only ensured by the individually suspended, 1.50 m wide tine section – the rake’s uniform form produced by the parallelogram guidance also provides optimum adjustment to the contour of the ground.
How aggressively you rake is up to you. The GREEN.RAKE expert can be adjusted from very gentle (e.g. for young grass on sandy, soft soils) to extremely aggressive for restoring hard soils.
The TERRA.ROLLER expert professional roller impresses on the field with even ground pressure and optimum terrain adjustment. But it is also ideally equipped for use on grassland. Even at first glance, the three-part earth roller scores points with its particularly robust frame. Further strengths are revealed out on the field.
On the one hand, the individually suspended roller elements ensure optimum adjustment to the soil surface. On the other hand, the
roller delivers an even ground pressure over the entire working width. The pressure is adjusted mechanically or hydraulically, depending on the equipment version.
The TERRA.ROLLER expert can be supplied with both seeder equipment and seedbed preparation tools on request. The compressed air brake system, also available as an option, ensures safe road travel.
Two different controls are available for the seeders. The ES 8 Standard and ES 8 Turbo can be operated intuitively thanks to the tried and
tested “Standard” control. This allows the seeder to be easily switched on and off from the cab, the spread rate to be continuously adjusted
and a calibration test to be carried out.
The SEED.CON control module works wirelessly and is compatible with all seeders. The user-friendly interface on your own smartphone or tablet makes the control even more practical and simple. All settings can be made either from the cab or directly on the seeder. Further advantages of the SEED.CON control are the possibility of speed-dependent regulation of the spread rate as well as additional operation via an ISOBUS terminal.
Levelling, raking, sowing, rolling – with the GREEN.RAKE combi you can do it all in just one operation. Despite its scope of performance, it’s the
combination machine’s compactness that stands out. Three rows of rakes built into a robust frame make the GREEN.RAKE combi not just sturdy, but easy to pull and manoeuvre as well. The easy three-point attachment is particularly practical.
In addition, the height-adjustable tine section guarantees a perfect working pattern. By integrating a larger number of rake tines than the GREEN.RAKE classic, the GREEN.RAKE combi provides even better soil aeration. The tines are arranged at a distance of 65 mm and thus help to intensively rake out matted grass and weeds. The GREEN.RAKE combi is especially recommended for grassland maintenance in spring and
for intercropping in autumn.
