Model GVB520 Precision Metered Seed Planter

 

The GVB520 seed planter injects a seed into the ground every half-second, approximately 7,200 hills per hour, either through plastic mulch covered beds, or directly into bare ground. For vegetable row crops where one to nine row configurations are required, planting heads may be positioned at any point along the length of the tool bar. All planters come completely assembled and set up to your exact specifications.

 

The Planting Process

The GVB520 seed planter performs four functions at once.

1. The first step involves a propane fired turbo torch that pre-burns a hole into the plastic mulch.
2. Next, the planting jaw inserts a precise number of seeds (one to two average) into the ground directly through the center of the pre-burned hole.
3. The packer wheel comes in behind it to pack the seed into the hole.
4. The last step involves a water nozzle that dispenses approximately 1/4 cup of water, or liquid fertilizer to flush the hole closed, sealing the seed into the ground. Each burst of water is timed to the hole, eliminating waste.

Renaldo RTME-1100 Semiautomatic Vegetable Transplanter

This vegetable transplanter, like the metered seed planter, uses a single injector, tool bar concept that burns holes into the plastic, injects the seedling, and gently packs it into the ground. It is then possible to add moisture to the plant in either the form of liquid fertilizer or plain water. Safe for use with concealed drip irrigation tape. The RTME is ideally suited for plastic covered raised beds, flat beds, and bare ground. No other transplanter on the market today can deliver this kind of flexibility and ease of use.

 

Transplant Vegetables Through Plastic Mulch

The Renaldo Semiautomatic vegetable transplanter plants through plastic mulch covered beds at about one plant per second, per planting head. One row to six row (on three beds) configurations available. Easy to use carousel feed system requires one operator per planting head. The planting system is designed around our patented, award-winning Posi-Flow Ground Engaging System which can inject into the ground between 3,000 – 3,600 seedlings per hour, per one row unit.

Labor Savings

When implemented properly, the RTME1100 is capable of cutting the cost of labor associated with planting by up to 50%. Small growers planting between 25 and 200 acres of mixed crops are really going to appreciate this planters flexibility. The RTME is also smaller and lighter which allows it to fit narrow row centers of 60 inches and attached by a Category II or III three-point hitch to a tractor running at 45 horsepower.
