The MF 500 series uses technologies that focus on increasing yield. Thanks to the seed metering carried out by the Precision Planting System, the planter delivers quality planting without wasting seeds. The standard vSet2 dispenser has the best singulation on the market: 99.6% singulation when planting corn, for example. The row also has offset side limiters that provide ideal depth for seeding. This translates into more efficient planting for unmatched harvest.
