Launch of RovicLeers syncorseed Wheat Planter at NexusAG Small grain Conference


The NexusAG small grain conference, held on 8 February 2024, at the stunning Eensgezind function venue, was proudly hosted by NexusAG, along with RovicLeers and Cerealis, making up the trio of esteemed sponsors for the event. Among the distinguished speakers at the event, Dr. Ronel Hendriks and Dr. Tersia Ter Haar addressed the audience on the intricate ecosystem of a plant’s rhizosphere, described as a microbial hotspot and considered one of the most complex ecosystems on earth.

Lindsay Green, Managing Director of RovicLeers, highlighted the significance of the conference as a platform for unveiling the latest generation of the Rovic Syncroseed seeder. This state-of-the-art equipment features a patented dual seeder, and a fully equipped Furrow system imported from Australia. Sterling Gooch, an expert in this field, emphasized the capabilities of the optional Furrow system, boasting a powerful 390l p/h pump, even though the farmer will only require up to 150l p/h the extra power is diverted to the mixer tank to keep your fertiliser tincture of different densities in emulsion ensuring a consistent application. According to Wessel Cloete from NexusAG, a lot of successful in-depth research has been done towards in furrow fertiliser application which increases yield per hectare and lessens input costs.
Other equipment on display was the Rovic Syncrospread in both stainless steel and steel. RovicLeers is excited to announce that their spreader has been certified by the Australian fertiliser association, certifying that they can comfortably spread out to 36 metres with less than a 15% variable coefficient and constant.

“We wish to thank everyone that enjoyed the day with us and wish everyone all the best with the upcoming wheat season.”
