Dot to launch autonomous 12-row planter

Making its eastern Canada debut, Dot — along with SeedMaster — will unveil a new prototype for a planter at Canada’s Outdoor Farm Show, at Woodstock, Ont., September 10 to 12.

“When Dot first launched, we had many farmers asking when they would see an autonomous planter added to our lineup,” says Norbert Beaujot, founder of SeedMaster Manufacturing and Dot Technology Corp. “We are proud to now have a product for those farmers and we see a bright future for SeedMaster’s Dot-Ready product offerings.”

The planter will feature a 12-row unit with 30-inch spacing and currently offers two tank configurations: one 50-bushel seed tank with two 425-gallon liquid tanks, and two 50-bushel seed tanks with one 425-gallon liquid tank. It also features electric variable rate vacuum seed meters and variable rate liquid fertilizer options.

“The launch of the planter sends a strong message about the forward-motion of Dot and the industry’s eagerness to join in building autonomous, Dot-Ready Implements for all farming practices, including row cropping,” says Robert Saik, CEO of Dot Technology Corp.

The new prototype along with SeedMaster’s 30-foot Ultra DSR seeder, Pattison Liquid System’s 120-foot Connect PLU120 sprayer, and the New Leader 5G precision fertilizer spreader will also be on display at the show.
