The potato harvest is a highlight for most potato farmers around the world, big and small growers alike. At times it turns out to be the “cherry on the cake” after a long season of sweat and toil, especially when pleasant surprises are unexpectedly unearthed. Other times it might turn out to be a time rife with disappointment and agony – a time best forgotten as soon as possible. However it might turn out to be, harvest time is always marked by a good measure of excitement and anticipation.
Miedema Structural 4000
Speed and accuracy: The Miedema Structural 4000 is a mounted or trailed 4-row belt planter that combines extreme planting precision, a high driving speed (up to 11 km/h) and potato-friendliness. The Miedema Structural is without a doubt the fastest yet also the most reliable potato planter on the market. Our belt planters are suitable for straightforward, place-specific planting of a wide variety of seed potatoes.
The heart of a Structural
The renowned Structural belt planting system combines precision with a high level of product-friendliness. The unique planting system limits friction between the tubers and therefore prevents damage to the seed potato. The unique, potato-friendly planting belt concept gives each individual seed potato optimum room to grow based on its size. That way you always get a homogeneous end product. The open design of the belt bed also does an excellent job of separating foreign matter from the seed potatoes and makes it easier to perform maintenance and adjustment of the machine.
Precision farming within easy reach
By making use of GPS support, the Structural can map out the parcel. The control system ensures precise planting. Thanks to our Precision-Planting system you are assured perfect placement of the seed potatoes, with even spacing, at the correct depth and in a single line in the middle of the ridge. Moreover, with the Miedema planters you can also perform place-specific planting, granulate spreading and fertilising, all independently of each other.
