Horsch has been selling the Maestro planter for over two years in Europe, and now, with a few minor adjustments, Horsch has catered the outfit to its North American cliental. The unit, ISOBUS-compatible, holds up to 1,000 gallons of liquid fertilizer and is available with 12 or 24 rows on 30 inch spacing. Besides being equipped with six-section liquid control, the Maestro’s metering system is driven by an electric motor, meaning fewer vibrations, a smoother ride and high seed placement accuracy.
In this video, Jesse Kappenman of Horsch discusses the aforementioned features of the Maestro corn planter, while also explaining the benefits of hydraulic down-pressure, the robust structure and optional row cleaners.
