New ridging hood on the Ceres 200M


19 September 2023
Update aimed at better ridge formation.

TO ensure sufficient loose soil in the tractor track, a frame with subsoiler tines has been added to the Ceres 200M's ridging hood.

Manufacturer AVR says this ensures better ridge formation and consequently optimal growing conditions for the seed potato. 
The Ceres 200M is a mechanically driven, two-row mounted planter.

The planting system is based on the same principle as used in the Ceres line, but in this machine it has been reduced to its simplest form. Available options are lighting, two types of fixed bunkers (600 kg and 1,350 kg), electrical agitators in the cup belt, a ridging hood and a fertiliser unit.
