Commenting James Woolway, OPICO Managing Director said,
‘With the Sky brand we have over 25 years of experience and farm trials in cover cropping and companion crops. The Groundswell event is the perfect venue to showcase the capabilities and versatility of the EasyDrill, offering advice for growers already doing, or considering a move to, no-till or conservation agriculture.’

The EasyDrill is specifically designed as a direct drill but works equally well in minimum tillage conditions, on consolidated ploughed soil and when drilling into cover crops. The drill can be fitted with up to three separate hoppers to allow conventional drilling to take place alongside fertiliser application, cover crop drilling or slug pellet application.

An electric driven metering system allows easy calibration, accurate setting and variable rate as standard. The primary seed is drilled using the disc coulter and the secondary product (often fertiliser) is applied by dedicated coulters in front of the press wheels. If an additional ‘pro hopper’ is fitted for a third product, this is metered for drilling into either the seed or fertiliser distribution systems. The use of two separate air circuits allows drilling at two different depths, providing accurate seed and fertiliser placement, targeting nutrition and maximising crop efficiency.
