Väderstad Tempo is a new generation high-speed planter, delivering an unmatched precision at double the speed of traditional planters. No-till, min-till or conventional tillage – Tempo performs exceptionally in all conditions. The crops gets the best start possible which results in an even emergence.

Designed for multiple crops

Tempo R has a frame designed to enable simple setup of row spacing and number of row units. With six rows, the machine can be configured to 450 or 500mm row spacing, while the four-row version can be adjusted to 700, 750, 762 or 800mm.

Fertiliser metering with high capacity

As an option, Tempo R can be equipped with a 1200 litre fertiliser hopper and disc fertiliser coulters. The hopper is mounted on the planter, with access to the big opening from steps on both sides. The high capacity hopper result in fewer fillings which reduces downtime in the field. Electric motors enable variable fertiliser rate, offering higher yield with the same amount of fertiliser.

Row shut off saves fertiliser

Together with the seed metering, the fertiliser metering has individual row shut off. This maintains the correct application even on irregular fields. The fertiliser is metered through short hoses which improves the reaction time. Individual row shut off provides equal conditions for the plant which leads to an even crop emergence and reduces fertiliser costs.  For full specifications visit the Väderstad website here.
