Potato Planter

Planting Master Potato + is a precision potato planter. PlantingMaster Potato + has been designed and developed in collaboration with Europe-based partner Dewulf, a global leader in potato machinery.

  • Ensures a high level of singulation and no missing potato seeds. Singulation means only one potato is planted in one spot and there is no doubling-- that is two potatoes planted in a single spot.

  • Gives high speed planting

  • Potatoes are planted accurately, ensuring uniform depth and uniform seed to seed distance.

  • The ridges created over the planted potatoes have just the right level of soil compaction. This ensures that each plant has enough water, sunlight and space to grow, developing healthy tubers.

  • Results in increased crop yields and potato quality

  • The design of the planter is such that it can be adjusted for changes in agronomy practices, such as for whole potatoes or cut potatoes, straight line planting or zig zag planting and planting at various levels of depth.
