Our SDOs are a bolt-on seed coulter unit which, when coupled with a seed distribution unit, such as a Stocks Seeder, enables a regular cultivator to become a true one-pass crop establishment tool. This set up will till and prepare the soil for seeding, place the seed and firm the seed in place ensuring good soil to seed contact – all in one pass. The unit suits those users who are seeking a more precise and consistent seed placement than that achieved by simply broadcasting the seed ahead or indeed behind the packer roller. The SDO is an ideal tool for planting oilseed rape behind a cultivator containing Subsoiler legs. It is a robust design with simple adjustments for seed depth and firming pressure and has been the tool the choice for many OSR growers. Sumo’s SDOs can be fitted to any cultivator but are designed specifically to go behind Sumo’s deep and shallow cultivation ranges.
