Text below is from an impartial farmer updating the Triton v 750a. He says 'One on left is Triton drilled Zyatt and right is 750a. I think yours has more surviving tillers which I hope translates into ears and slightly better rooting?...' pic.twitter.com/MewePAHOpC— Triton Seed Drills England (@TritonUK) 8 April 2019
We had always hoped that someone would make a drill like the Triton for our heavy land farm, we liked it so much we bought the prototype which has proved its worth and has moved us forward as hoped and expected. Great drill, great potential, good luck.
Our steepest, most awkward field had not ploughed very well, consequently getting spring beans in during a wet spell proved too much for our 6 metre drill. A neighbour suggested trying the Triton drill which did the job admirably, we got a crop and would recommend the machine in heavy conditions.
The first season with the Triton drill proved how well it would cope with wet late conditions. This season, naturally totally different from last year has shown that given good stubble management (which need not be expensive) how well it managed with direct drilling in a variety of weather and soil types.
Welcome To Triton Seed Drills
Triton is a seed drill that utilises purist vertical tillage through one-pass direct, or conventional, seeding. It is the only seeding system capable of fully effective direct seed drilling into all soils in all weathers. It is unique and is both worldwide patent applied and European design registered.
- Designed by engineers in Cambridge for maximum versatility and yields, and low-input farming.
- 100% British, assembled by a long-established agricultural fabricating company in Retford.
- Requires no adjustment between seed types and is maintenance free.
- Provides seedlings with an ideal growing environment from one-pass seeding into any soil in any weather conditions.
- Performs perfectly in any soil, in any weather, drilling all seed types. It uses no roller or packer.
- The Triton Side-press seeded fields do not require rolling.
- The horizontal and vertical lifting blades create secure enclosure of the seed in any wet conditions in heavy clay.
The Triton is a game changer: no longer does the weather effect the drilling programme. With one-pass vertical tillage seeding the Triton is arguably better for the soil structure than Controlled Traffic Farming due to one-pass vertical tillage seeding, and no rolling.
Rotate your entire farm under profitable, weed-free, winter sown crops. Kick spring-sown scrappy crops into the ditch.
There is a three-month delivery period for a Triton Seed Drill so we urge an early visit to see the crop establishment on a Triton drilled farm. Whether rock-hard dry clay, or saturated ground of any soil type, you will be able to drill rape straight behind the combine with a Triton.
Take back control of your rotation and profitability with a Triton Seed Drill.
The unique Triton Side-Press Seed Drill (two-stage side-press) has revolutionised seed drilling – no longer is it dictated by the weather. The Triton Drill sets seed securely, with full soil contact, without using a press, a packer or a separate roller. It also self-cleaning. The non-inversion, low disturbance, seeding blades cut the soil open while placing the seed on to the seed terrace, where the seed is split to either side of the terrace by the soil interrupter and splitter bar.
