Garlic: Mechanical planter

As we told in the last post, we have to speak about J.J.Broch mechanical garlic planter, which is our planter. About this machinery we have published more posts previously e.g. last year, as you can see from here. As you can notice in our new video, the problem about noise has been solved because this planter gets cloves of garlic through teaspoons instead of air turbine like La Preferia precision garlic airplanter. In return and if you observe our video, it is possible cloves are not put on soil with so many accuracy... Although, we are really geting very good results with this planter and we achieve to put on the soil about 10 cloves per metre. Anyway, the comparison is not 100% accurate because the working speed was not identical. We are going to carry out this study more carefully in the next year... we are going to publish it for you. 

In our area and we guess in Spain in general, the most used garlic planter is the mechanical one, mainly because the price is lower. According to that, our friend Espejo has told us (from Chinchón) that in his area (which is another very important area regarding Spanish garlic production) the majority of farmers are using mechanical planters as well. We are waiting comments of other farmers and other areas of Spain and why not from other countries about their garlic planter jobs and about differences and feelings between mechanical and pneumatic garlic planters.

    Hola

    Me ha gustado mucho la comparativa que habéis hecho entre la sembradora neumática y la mecánica.

    Yo prefiero la mecánica por varias razones:
    • Con la sembradora mecánica el tractor trabaja a muchas menos revoluciones.
    • El ruido es infinitamente mejor.
    • Quizás con la neumática puedas sembrar más deprisa, pero tampoco hace falta correr tanto.
    • Una vez nacidos los ajos, tampoco hay mucha diferencia en la siembra. Es posible que la neumática eche algún diente doble menos pero tampoco es mucha la diferencia.

    En definitiva, por el ruido y por el ahorro de gasoil, me quedo con la mecánica.

    Saludos desde Las Pedroñeras, capital del ajo

    1. Muchas gracias por tu comentario.

      Realmente la ventaja de la neumática es que echa menos ajos dobles, por lo que la precisión es algo mayor. Respecto a lo que comentas es totalmente cierto, el tractor trabaja a menos revoluciones y la velocidad tampoco influye mucho en esta tarea.
      Como gran desventaja, por lo menos para nosotros, es el ruido que genera la turbina.

      Como ya hemos comentado, nosotros seguiremos trabajando con la mecánica.

      Saludos.
