HORSCH ContourFarming is the automatic adaption of the metering revolutions over the working width of the machine when cornering. For crops like maize, sunflowers and sugar beet the optimum seed size or the desired population density is indicated by the breeder based on variety and site. These specifications mostly are based on tests. Every variety has certain tolerance range, e.g. from 60,000 to 75,000 plants per hectare. The seed quantity should also be in this range, even on the headlands and even when cornering. The HORSCH Maestro line with its individually electrically driven metering units is the ideal basis for the integrating of an automatic adaption of the seed quantity when cornering.
