Farmers can look forward to big changes to Seed Hawk’s seeding system on its 2016 models. Unveiled at the 2014 Canada’s Farm Progress Show, the new system totes modular tanks, sectional control technology, an electronic metering system, a fourth 40 bushel seed tank and larger tires.

In an upcoming TechTour episode, Shaun Haney will talk more to the iCon wireless control system, which enables iPad users wireless, full seeder control. The function is complete with instant updates on how much seed is left in the tank and thus, how many acres are left (thanks to the aforementioned modular tanks with load cells).

In this video, Pat Beaujot, founder and director of strategic market development for Seed Hawk, walks us through the 2016 seeding system at Canada’s Farm Progress Show, highlighting the modular tanks, the new fourth tank and sectional control technology.

The new tanks have up to 980 bushel capacity and are up to 80 feet wide.
