Prototype machine for collecting indigenous seed material - Semenko NRP


Development and production of a prototype brush machine for collecting seed material.

For the purposes of the project  Conservation of priority grassland habitats in Slovenia through the establishment of seed bank and in situ restoration (LIFE FOR SEEDS), we developed and produced a prototype of a brush machine for collecting seed material for the project partner Notranjski regijski park (NRP).

The brush machine is designed and manufactured as an attachment on the frontal hydraulics of the tractor. The working width of the machine is 3 m. The central hydrostatic drive of the brushes is driven by tractor hydraulics, which allows changing the direction and speed of the rotation, thus achieving optimal working conditions. The large working width and picking speed enable high productivity, which is why the machine is mainly intended for work on large areas.
