New drill breaks cover

Also making its UK debut at this year’s Cereals Event was the Kuhn Aurock drill, having first broken cover in Paris at the SIMA show. Targeting the growing conservation agriculture sector but versatile enough for wider applications, the AUROCK is launched in a six-metre format and will be available from the summer of 2019.

The triple disc seed drill can establish crops under cover in both min-till and direct drilling conditions. Available with single and dual metering units, the Aurock R single metering unit version has a 3500-litre capacity hopper while the Aurock RC the double metering unit version has a 5000-litre split hopper, requires a minimum of 180hp to operate and is ISOBUS compatible.
