For profitable agriculture, important prerequisites must be fulfilled in various areas. We are at your side and supply you not only with what you need for your farm, but also with much more.
LEMKEN is always at least one step ahead as far as pioneering soil cultivation solutions are concerned. Our ploughs, furrow presses, cultivators, compact disc and rotary harrows feature numerous well-designed details and additionally powerful electronics to combine operating comfort with ultimate safety and reliability of use for both conventional and conservation tillage.
The use of ploughs is gaining more and more importance in arable farming as the use of crop care products is being reduced. For many farmers, ploughs are the first choice, above all as an alternative to the use of total herbicides and as a means to control herbicide resistant weeds.
LEMKEN ploughs are available in numerous versions and with quadruple or variable working width adjustment. With extensive equipment, they can be adapted to all individual conditions. Many models are also suitable for onland use with wide tyres to protect the soil.
The particularly light Juwel 6 is available in a 3- to 5-furrow versions featuring a four working widths or variable working width adjustment.
The easy to pull Juwel 7 is available in 3 - 6 furrow versions with 4 or variably adjustable working widths. Numerous equipment options of the larger Juwel 8 and 10 ploughs are also available for the Juwel 7.
The 3 - 7 furrow Juwel 8 impresses with a wide range of variants and available options. Like the Juwel 10, it is available with OF equipment for onland or in-furrow ploughing. The Juwel 8i has ISOBUS control and is therefore particularly easy to operate.
The 4 - 7 furrow Juwel 10 is specially designed for heavy conditions and large tractors with up to 450 hp and can be an alternative to the semi-mounted plough. Like the Juwel 8, it is available with OF equipment for onland or in-furrow ploughing. For safer transport and to reduce the load on the tractor, special top link damping and a transport function are available.
Diamant 16 is built for performance and equipped with all our technologies to help you achieve a high level of productivity. On the road or in the field, you will appreciate the comfort!
The demands placed on modern semi-mounted reversible ploughs are becoming ever more stringent as farms continue to increase in size. In view of various factors such as yield potential, precipitation and different crop rotations, farm managers still rely on powerful and efficient plough technology. Handling, quality of work and increase in productivity play an important role. With the Titan 18, LEMKEN fulfils farmers’ high demands. The Titan 18 semi-mounted reversible ploughs are used exclusively as onland versions to protect soils.
LEMKEN pays a lot of attention to optimal reconsolidation: with different packer types or following rollers of the machines for seedbed preparation and stubble cultivation.
When ploughing, the soil is loosened, crumbled and at the same time its porosity volume is increased. This allows air and heat to enter the soil and interrupts the soil capillaries. Because of tight crop rotations, there is usually no time for gradual settling and natural fermentation of the soil. In addition, drying out of the ploughed soil must be prevented. On the other hand, capillary action must be restored as quickly as possible for the seed sub-bed.
Distance from farm to field, often increases with farm size. This means furrow presses fully-mounted on the plough, offer a practical and time-saving solution by avoiding the need for a separate transport tractor. The FlexPack can also deal with variable working widths for mounted ploughs.
Immediately behind the plough, and thus at the most favourable moment and in the optimum moisture state, the soil is reconsolidated at the depth of the crock and coarse clods are broken up. The formation of fermentation is promoted and drying is prevented. The capillary action interrupted by the loosening and crumbling of the soil and the enlarged pores is quickly restored. The furrow press thus lays the foundation for the seedbed in the tight crop rotations.
The front packer (FE) is characterised by its short design, active steering, and a very favourable centre of gravity. It is available with one row of rings in rigid and folding versions.
Due to its reconsolidation, apart from the plough furrow press with push device, the VarioPack attached to the front hydraulics prevents the tractor wheels from sinking deep into the soil and the formation of a ridge between the wheels.
The soil is the most important resource in productive agriculture. Choice of the primary cultivation procedure, for the particular location, and optimal use of technology, help retain the long-term profitability of the soil. An important factor for a successful harvest is the preparation of seedbeds.
The Zirkon 8 is the rotary harrow model for tractors with 60 to 175 HP. Various additional equipment options enable to adapt the rotary harrow to suit your operational conditions in seedbed preparationpreparation.
The Zirkon 12 is suitable for maximum constant load both in conventional and conservation-tillage procedures in the seedbed preparation. The active tools of the Zirkon 12 prepare an optimum seedbed in almost all soil conditions. The intensity of preparation can be specifically adjusted by selecting appropriate combinations of forward travel speed, PTO speed, and the transmission setting of the rotary harrow.
The Korund seedbed combination is characterised by particularly good levelling, loosening and grubbing with a high degree of surface coverage. It capacity, due to its various tine options, is demonstrated in professional potato or maize cultivation.
The Kompaktor is the ideal machine for preparing a finely cultivated, well reconsolidated seedbed with an even depth. This provides the basis for an even establishment, particularly of fine seeds like sugar beet and rape seed, and thus achieving high yields.
LEMKEN offers a wide product range of compact disc harrows and cultivators to enable the forward-looking farmer and contractor to implement a coordinated strategy of stubble cultivation and basic soil cultivation for mulch sowing, depending on the location, soil and prevailing crop rotation.
In the process, implements with different tillage intensities, such as the Heliodor and Rubin compact disc harrows or the Koralin, Kristall and Karat cultivators, can be linked to form intelligent process chains. In this way, all crop production requirements can be optimally taken into account at low process costs.
The Heliodor compact disc harrow can be used for shallow stubble cultivation on light and medium soils, and for seedbed preparation before mulch sowing, or after ploughing. This means the Heliodor can be used in both conventional and mulch sowing systems. High working speeds and a low power requirement give high-performance tillage.
The Rubin compact disc harrow guarantees intensive, uniform mixing of organic matter and soil to a depth of approximately 14 cm, Its high weight guarantees penetration, even under hard conditions, and therefore reduces moisture loss from evaporation. This makes the Rubin highly suitable for shallow, reliable stubble cultivation at high working speeds.
With Rubin 12, LEMKEN introduces a compact disc harrow that enables deeper cultivation comparable to a tined cultivator up to a depth of 20 cm. The Rubin 12 is suitable both for stubble cultivation and for primary soil tillage, even under the heaviest soil conditions.
Agriculture is subject to continuous change and needs to adapt to new challenges all the time. The increasing drought affects soils, and water is becoming a more and more precious resource as a result. Therefore, the Koralin cultivator offers a versatile solution for the gentle cultivation of agricultural land. It protects your soil and you can look forward to a perfect result once the work is done.
The Kristall cultivator combines the proven advantages of a twin-beam cultivator with the added benefits of a cultivator with three or more tine rows.
The Karat 9 intensive cultivator is suitable for initial shallow, all-over stubble cultivation after combining, as well as deep, intensive mixing to incorporate straw at a later date. The tractor-mounted Karat 9 has an easily accessible depth adjustment system to set working depth in small increments between 5 and 30 cm without using tools. The Karat 9 is available in mounted folding versions with 4 and 5 m working width. Rigid and semi-mounted three-beam cultivators can be found on the successor model Karat 10.
The new Karat 10 three-beam cultivator reveals its efficient design even at first glance: The tines are now arranged symmetrically about the towing axle, making the machine extremely low-draught and ensuring intensive mixing at the same time. This is particularly important when using the cultivator with track guidance systems.
LEMKEN has developed the Karat 12 for both shallow and deep tillage, also in heavy soils. Four rows of tines produce the desired loosening and mixing effect, depending on the share type used.
LEMKEN's modern sowing technology combines optimum seed placement and high output. A wide range of combination options and good reconsolidation create the basis for a good harvest.
Modern arable farms need high performance equipment, a versatile combination of different functions within an implement, and fast, simple road transport. And all this without compromise to good consolidation and perfect seed placement. The most important feature of a modern drill technology is that it will work flawlessly in both conventional and conservation tillage.
The Saphir 9 impresses with outstanding operating comfort and easy handling. The combination of a reliable mechanical seeding shaft drive and large hopper volumes makes for high area outputs. As a result, the Saphir 9 is the perfect seed drill for small and medium-sized farms.
The Saphir 10 offers a wide range of options for highly precise, accurate seeding. Thanks to the electric drive, the seeding rate can be adjusted from the comfort of the cab.
The updated Solitair 8+ is ideal for small and medium-sized farms that are looking for a cost-efficient way of using high-precision pneumatic seed drill technology for conventional and conservation tillage.
The Solitair 9+ pneumatic seed drill can be used as a rigid, semi-mounted version in various working widths. As it can be combined with various tillage implements or run in solo operation, it can be used in a wide range of applications and with various cultivation methods.
The Solitair 9+ Duo pneumatic seed drill features a divided seed hopper and therefore offers multiple options for simultaneously applying seeds, fertiliser or even interseeds.
The Solitair 9 pneumatic seed drill is available as a folding or semi-mounted folding version in working widths of 3 to 6 metres. The potential for solo use, or in combination with a wide range of tillage implements, creates a versatile machine that can be used in a number of establishment situations.
With Solitair 12, LEMKEN offers trailed pneumatic seed drills in working widths of 8 to 12 metres for maximum field performance and cost-effectiveness.
The Solitair 23+ front tank can be used for sowing or fertilising and can be combined with various LEMKEN seed drills such as the Azurit precision planter for fertilising or the Optidisc 25 coulter bar for sowing.
The Solitair 25 KA pneumatic seed drill has been specially developed to work in a wide variety of conditions. The implement can be combined with a range of different tillage implements and coulter bars for maximum utilisation.
The LEMKEN OptiDisc 25 solo coulter bar now provides farmers with yet another sowing option. The coulter bar can be combined with the Solitair 23+ front tank and a rotary harrow to form an agile, compact drilling combination with optimal weight distribution, even when working with a smaller tractor.
Incredibly easy to tow, integrated compact disc harrow, comfortable operation and a large, optionally divided seed hopper – that is LEMKEN’s new Solitair DT seed drill, available in working widths of 4 and 6 metres.
Greatest possible efficiency with maximum precision – these were the maxims set for designing the Solitair DT. The result is a drill combination with truly impressive performance: lighter, more efficient, better.
High performance is becoming ever more important when sowing with modern drills - with no compromises, good reconsolidation, and perfect seed placement. The drill combination must also be versatile for use in mulch drilling and conventional ploughing and drilling.
With summer cereals in regions with brief vegetation periods, in particular, significant increases in profits can be realised with drill combinations that place grain and fertiliser simultaneously. In both conventional and minimum tillage cultivation, a speedy seedling development is achieved.
For efficient seeding in varying conditions LEMKEN offers the CompactSolitair drill combination combined with the Zirkon power harrow.
With the Azurit, LEMKEN has set standards in precision seeding. The staggered placement of the grains in the DeltaRow triangle provides the plants with more nutrients, more water and more light. With this advantage for the plant, a higher yield can be achieved with the same crop density. The DeltaRow method also enables tramlining with a constant number of plants.
The precision air seeder Azurit 10 uses the innovative DeltaRow method for sowing. After clearing the seed furrow, mineral fertiliser is placed centrally underneath the DeltaRow via a double disc coulter. After pre-consolidation of the seed rows, double disc coulters place the seed in the soil. As an alternative to underfoot fertilisation, the MicroHub micro granule unit is also available.
The Azurit 10 features the innovative precision seeding technology in the DeltaRow method. The optimised space distribution of the plants ensures a better use of resources and thus leads to higher yields.
For most farmers, sowing catch crops directly as they cultivate their stubble is the easiest approach, as it avoids an additional pass and reduces working time, effort and costs. This is why LEMKEN now offers a combined pneumatic intercrop seeder for its cultivators and compact disc harrows. This allows farmers to utilise the optimal time for sowing and benefit from immediate erosion protection.
With its SeedHub, LEMKEN offers a catch crop seed drill that can be combined with various tillage implements. This allows catch crops to be sown during stubble cultivation to save working time and costs.
LEMKEN takes the term Crop Care literally, because it is about protecting and caring for the crops and giving them everything they need to thrive. At the same time, the environment should be protected and the use of pesticides and fertilisers should be as precise as possible and reduced to a minimum.
Fertilisation accounts for about one third of the operating costs of an arable farm. This makes the technology used all the more important, so that losses can be minimised and output and precision can be increased. The six fertiliser spreader models in three performance classes make your work easy and help you achieve your goals.
The LEMKEN SPICA 8 fertiliser spreader combines easy handling with high operator comfort. Straightforward attachment, loss-free filling and secure adjustment ensure a rapid, effective deployment on the field.
With its larger tank and longer spreading distances, the TAURI fertiliser spreader is particularly well suited for use in mixed and livestock farming businesses. The automatic weighing system (Tauri 12) provides for even application and ensures the efficient use of fertiliser.
The POLARIS fertiliser spreader features a comprehensive range of smart features such as intelligent electronic assistance systems for maximal spreading precision and flexibility. Its variable tank sizes and full ability to control all systems from the comfort of the cab ensure maximum operator comfort. The Polaris delivers ultimate efficacy with superior efficiency on large fields.
Every field and every crop is different, including the weeds that compete with our arable crops for light, water and nutrients. Efficient weed control is essential for highest crop quality and safe yields.
The EC-Steer parallel steering frame makes controlling your hoeing machine a breeze. Whether you have a third-party machine or an EC-Weeder – EC-Steer allows you to upgrade any hoeing machine with a steering system controlled via an in-cab joystick or with the IC-Light camera control. This is particularly advantageous if you want to use hoeing machines for various row widths with a single steering system.
The EC-Ridger is suitable for all crops grown on ridges with 75 cm row distance, like potatoes and carrots, also in later growing stages.
The EC-SprayHood is suitable for crop rows on the flat field. The herbicide is sprayed inside the hood, therefore it is placed inter-row, so between the rows to kill weeds and volunteer plants.
The Intelligent Camera Concept (IC) automates row guidance and plant detection. The handling and operation of the IC technology is very intuitive and simple. And if you need additional help, you can get direct support in the field via remote maintenance.
