A long internal smooth seed tube, with an elbow molded into it, is held at the support of the seed tube. From there, it’s joined to a constrained seed tube that allows the products to flow easily into the openers, and allows for flex.

The tube bends in order to prevent cutting and crimping, ensuring a steady flow of seed. It is constructed of non-corrosive nylon for longevity.

Long tubes measure 55.4 centimeters (21.8 inches.) and short tubes measure 10.8 millimeters (4.25 in. ).

Elbow at a distance of meters to angle the seed tube straight towards the openers.

The smooth inner diameter ensures seamless seed flow from meters up to openings for the furrows.

The combination grain/fertilizer drill that has 19.3 cm (7.5-in.) row spacing is equipped with an unconstrained tube that guides fertilizer from the discharge hole up to on top of the seed tube made of steel at the boot for the seed.

After that, a specially designed adapter Y lets fertilizer and seed mix before being inserted into the furrow.
