The name says it all when it comes to the Duncan Vineyard Seeder.
At only 1.8m wide, this little double disc gem is designed specifically for planting between rows in vineyards and orchards, and the linkage hitch makes it easy to get in and out of the rows at the headlands.
It's fitted with side guards to protect the gearbox and flap handles from the vines, so you can be assured the seeder settings don't get knocked, and it will operate correctly all day long.
The double disc system can be used with or without press wheels, and will sow into the rough and rocky conditions that vineyards are known for, to establish a cover crop in one pass.
The powder coated Vineyard Seeder looks good, it’s tough and it will be a valuable asset to your horticulture or viticulture operation for many years.

Gravity seed distribution
This reliable system has been utilised on Duncan Drills for decades. It is easy to calibrate and use, requires no tractor hydraulics to run it and it is incredibly accurate due to the seeds being metered from individual outlets for each run.
Seed and fertiliser is stored in a box above the drilling tines or discs and drops into a metering peg roller system with coarse and fine wheels and flow control flaps to handle different seed sizes and sowing rates.
Metered seed and fertiliser then drops down flexible hoses to the point of contact with the ground.
Double disc technology
Lower investment cost than a triple disc drill and lower maintenance costs with less wearing parts.
Large 380mm diameter heat treated discs work hard and have a long life.
A scalloped disc leads 30mm ahead of a plain disc to cut through trash and open up a rough slot creating tilth for good germination. The (full assembly) leading scalloped disc removes the need for an opening disc.
The plain disc holds the slot open to place the seed and the fertiliser into the slot.
The spring loaded jump assembly creates downward pressure but also allows the discs to ride up and over rocks and obstacles.
An optional press wheel or harrows close the slot to help with seed to soil contact and traps moisture.
