Title : An attempt to determine impact of tractor wheels track on irregularity of rye seeds sowing
Key words : longitudinal irregularity of sowing, rye seeds, sowing, coulters, seeder
Summary :

Impact of coulters location on a coulter beam of a seeder towards the track of drive wheels of a tractor at the varied working speed of a sowing aggregate applied in the research (from 4 to 12 km·h -1) and variable amount of seeding (within the range 130 to 170 kg∙ha -1) on the longitudinal irregularity of rye seeds of Bojko cultivar sowing with mechanical seed drills equipped with hoe coulters. SZK 1.5 H-151 Kaszub and Amozone D7 seeder were used in the field research. Average irregularity of rye seeds sowing with seeder SZK 1.5H-151 Kaszub was slightly higher than the limit value set forth in PN-84/R-55050 and was 0.47. In case of the second seeder Amazone D7 value of the irregularity index of sowing was higher and amounted to 0.52. According to the analysis of variance, out of two applied sowing aggregates only in one, Amazone D7 seeder, a weak, but significant impact (a=0.05) of coulters location towards the track of tractor wheels, on longitudinal irregularity of rye seeds sowing was reported.
