There was a good crowd on hand yesterday for Bourgault’s Seeding is Believing event at St. Brieux.
Rob Fagnou, the Marketing Specialist with Bourgault Industries says the annual event attracts producers who are interested in new developments in seeding equipment.
Once again this spring farmers faced a wide array of challenges at seeding; from the soil being too wet in some cases to too dry in others.
He says they focus on the challenges farmers face when developing new products.
“Our equipment is focusing on narrow openers and seedbed utilization. We’re looking at trying to reduce the amount of tillage that’s required to put the seed in the ground. So, the less soil that’s disturbed then typically the better your results will be to keep that moisture in the ground and trap that valuable moisture for the growing season.”
Fagnou says yesterday they showcased the advantages of some of their products like the 3720 Colter drill with 7950 air seeder, 3420 80 foot PHD drill and a 3320 XTC Hoe drill with another 7950 air seeder onto it.Click here to see more...
