CP 22 Farmer

The Miedema CP 22 is the best choice for professional potato growers with small or irregular plots. The lifted two-row planter forms a very compact, manoeuvrable combination. Despite the modest size of the CP 22, the fixed hopper has a capacity of up to 750 kilograms.

De CP 22 Farmer plants with the highest possible precision with row spacing of 75 to 91.4
cm. Thanks to its low weight, the planter can easily be carried by a light tractor. This way you can keep ground pressure to a minimum.

The Miedema cup planting system

Planting with the highest possible precision? You can, with the Miedema CP cup planter. The unique, parabolic planting tube is specially designed to plant the potato as precisely and RELIABLY as possible. Specially shaped cups, in combination with the agitators, ensure that the potatoes are nicely singled and missers are ruled out. Optical detection, with what is called the Eagle-Eye system, keeps a close eye on the planting process and provides the information you need for an even crop and high yield. The small bottom roller ensures that the potato falls in a straight line to the middle of the seedbed. This, along with the covering discs that are located close to the planting element, guarantees the position of the tuber, even at high driving speeds. Cleaning brushes beneath the planting element keep the potato cups free of dirt. This eliminates the need to interrupt the planting for unpleasant, time-consuming, manual cleaning.

Practical experience is the best teacher. The developers at Miedema have incorporated users' wishes into the design of the unique Miedema planting element. The potato-friendly cups, which are tipped forward at an 8° angle in the ascending section, provide excellent pick-up and singling of the potatoes, even in hilly terrain. The large top roller in combination with the parabolic-shaped planting tube, which are tipped forward at a 20° angle in the descending section, give each individual tuber the perfect starting position for achieving the most precise placement.

Moving bed

Moving bed

The unique moving bed of the Miedema CP potato planter is located on the bottom of the planting element. This moving, trapezoidal grate prevents bridging of the potatoes and therefore creates a perfect fl ow of seed potatoes to the pick-up section of the planting element. The constant supply of potatoes makes it possible to single them well. Broken-off sprouts and soil are separated out before they can reach the planting tube. Because the moving bed can be disengaged with a single action, the planter is easy to empty.

 

Cleaning brushes

Cleaning brushes

Improving the ease of use and boosting the quality of the planting result were the main objectives during development of the integrated cleaning brushes in the planting tube. These prevent contamination of the cups and the associated smearing of the seed potatoes. The brushes clean the cups after each revolution. An additional advantage is that the singling remains constant, thus guaranteeing the planting result.

 

Furrow opener

Furrow opener

The unique V-shaped furrow opener is fi tted with a small chisel that makes a narrow furrow. The resulting loose soil prevents the potato from continuing to roll. The result is precise placement of the tuber and an optimal start of the potato plant's growing process. The specially shaped furrow opener with upturned wings prevents accumulation, is easy to pull through the soil and creates good soil flow around the planter. The design with interconnected furrow openers attached in a parallelogram arrangement results in a perfectly formed wedge-shaped furrow. The planting depth can be easily adjusted with the large depth-control discs, which are attached to the accessories bracket. This system enables the Miedema CP to place the seed potatoes in a straight line, at constant planting depth and with equal spacing in the row. This is Precision-Planting!

Ultimate ease of use with the Miedema HMI operator panel

Ultimate ease of use with the Miedema HMI operator panel

Ease of use is the starting point for development of all Miedema machines. Thanks to our own HMI (Human Machine Interface) system, it is exceptionally ENJOYABLE to work with the hydraulically driven planters. The system supports the driver, performing many tasks for him, while all the planting statistics are shown on a well-organised screen in the tractor cab. The Miedema HMI operator panel can be easily connected to your tractor's GPS system. This provides access to the unique Miedema HMI GPS Planting-Comfort or -Control option. You can easily defi ne your planting plot from the tractor cab. In combination with the Row-Stop option the tramlines and headlands can be laid out automatically. With this at your fingertips you can respond adequately to changing circumstances and effi ciently adjust the planting settings for every situation.
