Onions & Bulbs planting machines

Planting machines for flower bulbs, onions, shallots and garlic can be built up differently and come in a variety of models. The working width may vary and one machine may cover more rows than another, but the planting technique applied is largely identical.

Bulbs, unions, shallots or garlic are conveyed from the hopper to the coulters at fixed intervals on a conveyor belt with vibrating discharge chutes. A continuous, equidistant flow of bulbs or onions is essential to obtaining a uniform planting result. As the bulb distribution belts are driven directly by the planting machine wheels, the number of bulbs or onions being planted is not in any way influenced by the speed at which the machine is driven. The conveyor belts can be set to 20 different speeds to regulate the quantity of bulbs or onions to be planted by rerouting a belt and / or exchanging the gears.

The coulters cut a groove in the soil in which the onions or bulbs can be planted. The depth at which the bulbs are planted can be set by congruently turning wheels that are adjustable in height. Next, the bulbs or onions are covered with a layer of soil by ridging scrapers or discs. This planting method will result in a row of equidistantly planted bulbs and onions.

Planting machines for root vegetables and bulbous plants can sometimes be used for other crops as well, such as bulbs, onions, shallots or garlic. The descriptions accompanying Nobels, Wifo Koningsplanter, Warrens, Van Hienen and Botman bulb and onion planting machines on this page contain a lot of information regarding the machines’ suitability for diverse purposes.
