OPERATION PRINCIPLE

The machine is connected to a tractor through a three-point hitch mechanism. Seeds prepared in advance for plantation are filled into the storage. The potato tubers inside the storage are automatically taken by conveyor belt with two rows of metal hollow pots on. The belt carries the seeds upwards to the vertical groove and finally the seeds are dropped to the beds opened by the planter tine. Plantation is completed by covering the dropped seeds with the help of furrow closing moldboard tines.
