Welcome to ZR Developments.
Manufacturer of the Simplicity Precision Dry Seed Sower and other seed nursery equipment
Since 1984, ZR Developments has been manufacturing machinery which is based on the principal of providing maximum sowing speeds without forfeiting high standards of sowing precision. Until now, the dry sowing process has tended to regard high sowing speed as of greater importance, than accuracy.
The application of advanced technology now enables us to offer a Dry Sower that achieves both features, is state of-the-art, and has unique features to any other dry sower model.
Concept – using modern technology, the challenge of speed without loss of accuracy in seed pickup and placement has been achieved.
ZR Development started with the sophisticated ‘Fluid Drill” which is managed by a computer along with the Germinator and is now building the ever popular range – the ‘Simplicity’. As the name indicates, this is a small compact, self contained, highly accurate machine which will cater for short runs for the horticultural industry and long runs for the brasicka/vegetable and forestry industries.
The design of this machine concentrates on being able to sow a seed as small as begonia, to as large as pine. It can be adjusted to sow single, double or even more seeds if required. Seed change is a 30 second operations, tray format change is a minute’s operation. It sows 1.02 seconds per index, an index is one row of the tray you are using.
The ‘Simplicity’ range is manufactured in a modular form, so you can purchase it as a plain sower or a sower with a dibber, the dibber is dependent on the seed being used to sow in the trays containing the fertilized medium, the watering bar, which could have the nutrients added and the capper which uses bark or peet. All components are stand alone machines and can be added to the ‘Simplicity’ as required. Then there is the Filling Line which also uses bark or peet. All the machines are manufactured using the highest quality of materials that are non corrosive and maintenance free.
