Brief characteristics of the exhibit
Farmet Falcon is the next generation of modular disc sowing machines. The basis of the machines is the travel system formed by a tyre roller and a self-supporting container replacing the main frame. On this basic functional unit, it is possible to aggregate various working sections into unified suspensions, both for fertiliser application and seed storage. The technical design of the Falcon machines allows for creation a wide variety of functional combinations of different working sections. Thanks to that, it is possible to compile an optimum configuration for every market and every individual customer, suitable for the conditions in question and the specific crop structure. Some working sections can be easily changed directly by the customer.
Specification of advantages compared to the competitors
The machines offer a completely new level of variance and utility value. During their development, many patented solutions and results of a long-term project focused on research and development of sowing machines solved in cooperation with the Czech Agricultural University in Prague have been utilised. The Falcon sowing machines can be utilised for sowing of cereals, legumes, oily crops, and forage crops, and for precise sowing of maize or sunflower. Alternatively, the machines can also be fitted with sections for differentiated deep strip soil processing with fertiliser depositing (strip till) during sowing. A very interesting novelty is the capability of parallel sowing of two species of the same crops with the even and odd sowing shoes. This very prospective technology of crop planting is currently being developed further and verified in cooperation with the VURV in Prague Ruzyne. Thanks to the variance and high utility value, the Falcon sowing machines offer high export potential.
