OMEGA OO 3000 L Seed Drill at Michal Ondras’ Farm
Michal Ondra and his father manage 140 hectares of arable land in the village of Lounkyin in the Litoměřice Region. They only specialise in plant production, with a focus on vegetables. In 2018, they purchased the OMEGA OO 3000 L seed drill. They have seeded over 120 hectares with the machine so far. Watch the following video report to learn more about their farm and the seed drill.
A family farm that specialises in growing vegetables
The family farm of Michal Ondra specialises in growing vegetables such as carrots, parsley and winter onion. These vegetables are grown over an area of 15 hectares. The same area is used for growing potatoes. Then, they grow winter wheat on an area of 50 ha, winter oilseed rape on an area of 15 ha, spring poppies on an area of 10 ha,and they reproduce phacelia.
The reason for choosing OMEGA OO 3000 L
Michal Ondra explains why they decided to purchase this seed drill: “When we were purchasing a new seed drill, we decided to go for a mounted seed drill with disc soil cultivation and a double-disc drill coulter. After looking at several offers from various manufacturers, we saw that the BEDNAR option was the best for us, both with regard to the purchase price and the quality of accessories.”
“Since last year, we have seeded 120 hectares of wheat, oilseed rape, phacelia, grass to a series of catch crop and peas without any difficulties. We are satisfied with the seed drill, both with the quality of seeding and the delivery of spare parts that are available by the following day,” adds Michal Ondra at the end of our interview.
