Equipment Spotlight: Salford Valmar 1665 Row Crop Applicator and Inter-row Seeder

Salford Valmar 1665 Row CRop Applicator

The 1665 Row Crop Applicator/Inter-row Seeder from Salford Valmar is an implement-mounted box optimized for tilling and seeding in a single pass. The 1665 mounts on planters or tool bars to apply product in the seed furrow or over the row. With the 1665, growers can seed at exactly the rate they desire while achieving precise placement of seed without unwanted seed in the row. Producers can leverage the resulting cover crops to reduce damages and losses from wind or water erosion and increase soil organic matter content. With the 1665’s individual-outlet positive displacement applicator, farmers can apply insecticides, herbicides, small seeds, inoculants, or micronutrients precisely where they need them and at the rate required. Salford Valmar’s ground-drive metering assures precise application, regardless of varying ground speed. The roller chain-driven, 60-speed mechanical gearbox delivers accurate application in 5 percent increments. The optional hydraulic drive enables application via variable rate technology. With Valmar’s individual metering, users can easily match the number of outlets required for a particular operation by opening or closing individual slide gates. For more on the 1665, for cover crop seeding and other applications, visit the product page at crop-applicator- and-inter- row-seeder.
