Twin-Row crops are planted with a staggered seed drop which increases yields.

Developed by the American MONOSEM subsidiary in 1992 and commercialized for nearly 20 years, this method is based on two-line staggered planting.
The crop is planted on two lines 20 centimeters apart instead of on one line with inter row spacings of 75 cm, 76,2 cm or 80 cm.
By a better positionning of the seeds, the Twin-Row Sync-Row® increases the seed population with less competition and more growing room and thus increasing the yields.
Harvesting is made with conventional equipment. Another advantage : as the overall inter row spacing is not modified, the tractor treads remain unchanged.
The patented Sync-Row® system synchronizes the 2 metering systems and ensures perfect staggering between the seeds.
The planting of each double line is ensured by 2 independent metering units for optimal planting.
The lateral seed spacing gearbox enables easy access for adjusting the seed population.
The Twin-Row planters are equipped with front wheel units for clearance between the metering units.
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.
