Väderstad has announced that it has produced 1,000 of its high precision planter, the Tempo L, first launched in 2017.
Equipped with the company’s patented PowerShoot technology, the Tempo L made headlines when it set a planting world record in Hungary, planting 502 hectares of maize in 24 hours, with an average speed of more than 20kph.
“The Tempo L has definitely pushed the limits regarding planting, capacity and precision,” said Väderstad senior vice president, global sales and marketing, Mattias Hovnert. “Two months after the world record, Gödöllő University helped us analyze and measure 6808 plants on the world record fields. The results were clear, there were minimal deviations in planting depth precision, doubles and skips.”
Väderstad produces around 5,500 machines each year. The Tempo L is currently available with 8 to 24 rows, and from June 2021 will be joined by the latest Tempo L 32, offering 32 rows and a working width of 12m.
