Launched in the 70’s in the United States the notion of planting resting on the ground directly in line with the seed drop or « American system of planting » exists in MONOSEM since 1989. Low maintenance, versatility; the “American planting system” has proven its efficiency. Associated with high quality distribution, the Monoshox NG Plus M enables optimal use of the planter on large surfaces, thus reducing its operating costs.
A DESIGN which makes all the difference
INCOMPARABLE PLANTING QUALITY AND OPTIMAL DEPTH CONTROL
The adjustable open press wheel unit*, made up of 2 V-wheels, closes the furrow around the seed for optimal seed germination.
* Equipment according to the country
The curved seed chute tube has been specially designed to accompany the seeds gently into the ground and with a perfect accuracy.
The V-tip finishes the bottom of the furrow for an optimal seed placement.
The double discs open the furrow at a depth defined by the gauge wheels.
The clod removers or the trash wheels clean the way for the future planting line pushing out clods, stones or trash.
The result of several years of development and testing on hundreds of planters in many countries, MONOSEM launches today the new Monoshox NG Plus M metering unit.
In order to meet with farmers new expectations, this new unit is:
- Faster due to its Monoshox.EU suspension with shock absorber,
- More accurate, no matter what the type of seed with the easily removed tip,- Easier adjustment with its parallelogram that can be rapidly adjusted in pressure and its new rear unit with adjusting levers.
The Monoshox®.EU like all good suspensions combines pressure springs with a shock absorber specially designed for using on a planting unit.
Thus, when working the two pressure springs retain the planting unit on the ground and the suspension with shock absorber absorbs the shocks. The precision and the regularity of the planting depth remain optimal.
The parallelogram for the Monoshox® NG Plus M metering units is equipped with two adjustable pressure springs to rapidly suit the planting conditions. These two springs offer more pressure, retaining the planting unit on the ground and thus guaranteeing a greater stability of the unit.
The patented quick-change system of the tip means you keep a tip forming a true V-shaped furrow for accurate seed placement at a regular depth, no matter what the planting depth or the type of seed (Maize, Sugarbeet, Rapeseed, Sunflower, Beans, Peanuts…..).
The Monoshox® NG Plus M unit is equipped with a rear press wheel unit that can be adjusted using levers.
The right hand lever enables a rapid and accurate adjustment of the rear press wheel pressure.The left hand lever enables the adjustment of the angle of the wheels to rapidly suit the planting conditions.
The hopper in high resistance, transparent plastic has a capacity of 52 litres.
The cover locks so will not close during filling, even in windy conditions.
Each metering unit is equipped with an audible safety clutch system with automatic clutching for optimal protection of the metering system.
The depth adjustment is easily made using a hand wheel. This type of adjustment ensures a great control precision of the planting depth even for small seeds at a shallow depth.
The depth adjustment index is visible straight away from the rear. It is weather-proof.
The planting system is made up of two large diameter discs (380 mm) mounted on sealed ball bearings.
Large depth gauge wheels (110 mm) ensure an efficient and uniform depth control. Resting on the ground directly in line with the seed drop ensures the unmatched depth consistency that makes the reputation of the NG Plus.
The independent gauge wheels are mounted on an equalizing rocker bar which ensures uniform depth control even when one wheel encounters an obstacle (eg: stones).
The bracket arms of the gauge wheels are assembled on interchangeable bushes. They are helically fluted for a good grease distribution.
Scrapers are standard assembly on the gauge wheels.
The adjustment of the clod removers is precise (12 positions) and rapid due to the adjustment system with locking pins.
The Monoshox NG Plus M range is now marketed in an electirc driven version, Monoshox NG Plus ME:

High quality planting demands a good distribution system. This is why MONOSEM offers all their know-how in order to give you an accurate, simple and extremely reliable distribution system. This high quality manufacturing has made the MONOSEM metering system a worldwide name. Today for your planting, you too can demand the MONOSEM reference.
The metering box is made from cast aluminium. Year after year the metering will always be just as accurate and this no matter the variations in temperature.
The wear gasket in Teflon is in permanent contact with the disc. It ensures the sealing of the disc and it is interchangeable.
The stainless steel discs 1,5 mm thick are very rigid. The agitator, fixed on to the disc stiffens the unit. The changing of the discs is easily made without tools. A complete range of discs for all precision seeds is available.
The brass scraper avoids doubles. A spring on the metering box cover maintains the selector perfectly in place against the disc for optimal selection, even with small seeds.
The cover in alloy is specially designed for planting with a minimum of seeds.
The distribution system is easily accessible, for both adjustments and control. A large transparent window allows for control of the selection after the selector.
The new emptying trapdoor offers easier operating. Open the trapdoor and it stays open enabling, with the emptying auger supplied as standard equipment, an even easier and more efficient emptying.
