Zero Crop Damage

Why even plant where damage will occur anyway?

The Zero Crop Damage is an exclusive Stara system that automatically shuts off the planting row units at the exact place where sprayers and spreaders will further pass over. The system provides seed savings of up to 4% regardless of the planting row unit steering*.
*Available on planters with Row-by-Row Shut-Off System and paid signal correction
Automatic shut-off of the planting row units

Automatic shut-off of the planting row units

The Zero Crop Damage performs planting with the automatic row-by-row shut-off of the row units where the sprayer and spreader will further pass over. It provides seed savings of up to 4% for the farmer. It is dependent upon the size of the self-propelled machine booms and the width of the tyres regardless of the planting row unit steering.

How it actually works

How it actually works

In practice, the planter shuts off the row unit at the exact place of the sprayer traffic. To accomplish that, the AB lines can be imported from the self-propelled sprayer to a flash drive, copied via coordinates, or create new lines. The self-propelled machines just copy the paths created by the planter, which must have the minimum tyre width of 55 cm.

The Zero Crop Damage is available for the Stara planter line with Row-by-Row Shut-Off System and Topper 5500. In addition, it is required to have the auto steering assembly and paid signal correction integrated.
