Kondinin Group's latest Research Report looks at air seeder carts and their applications.
Air seeder carts are getting bigger and despite travel being limited due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the research team was able to source commodity carts from a variety of districts including Esperance and Goomalling in Western Australia, the Riverina in New South Wales and the Mallee and Wimmera in Victoria.
A big thank you goes out to the primary producers who allowed the researchers to inspect the carts at such a busy time of the year. Our research doesn’t happen without your co-operation.
Pleasingly, most carts and seeding rigs were operating in close to ideal conditions following a genuine autumn break.
In terms of the carts in operation, the trend towards larger capacities looks set to continue with several models well and truly breaking the 30,000 litre barrier.
A good example is the latest Bourgault series – featured exclusively in this report for the first time in Australia – which should arrive in the country very shortly. Bourgault’s brand new 9000 series peaks at a huge 45,700 litres.
Kondinin Group Research Reports offer the only independent and comprehensive assessments of farm machinery, equipment, technology and rural services available to Austalia farmers.
