Horizon and Precision Planting
Horizon is a British manufacturer that focuses entirely on the development and production of seed drills and associated technology used in strip-till and no-till farming. In strip-till, only the strips to be sown are cultivated, while in no-till, the soil is not cultivated at all and sowing is done directly into the stubble of the previous crop. Horizon’s product range consists of three main machines: DSX, SPX and PPX. These machines are available in different working widths and configurations, and can be customized with several options.
US-based Precision Planting, a part of AGCO Corporation, focuses on developing smart products that improve the quality of sowing various crops which ultimately results in higher yields. Thus, Precision Planting’s unique and innovative solutions, combined with a great wealth of agronomic knowledge and experience, ensure a rapid return on investment by addressing the problems and challenges that cost farmers the most money. Precision Planting’s products can be fitted to new seed drills, but are also available as retrofit package to upgrade recently sold seed drills. This applies to strip-till, no-till as well as traditional-till agriculture.
