The CP cup planting machine is a multifunctional potato planter whose quality has been thoroughly proven in practice. The Miedema CP combines high capacity, user-friendliness and planting accuracy, and is a model of potato-friendliness.
It is also ideal as a combination machine for soil cultivation, fertiliser spreading, planting, crop protection and ridging in a single pass. You save on work, number of machines and fuel. All together, this means an optimum start to the potato growing season and a guarantee of high crop yields.
The best possible crop yield is achieved by creating optimum growing conditions for the potato. Accuracy when planting is the deciding factor for obtaining a good result. The right planting depth, spacing in the row and ridge formation ensure a good start to the growing season. Miedema CP cup planters guarantee optimum positioning of your seed potatoes and therefore the best possible planting accuracy.
Miedema CP cup planters stand out for their very accurate positioning of your potatoes. Separations of 3.8 to 50 cm are possible, adjustable to the millimetre. By connecting the potato planter to the GPS system on your tractor, you can automatically lay out the planting section and the tramlines, so seeds will only be set where you choose, preventing wastage of your product.
Miedema CP cup planters are designed to plant quickly and accurately. A very large potato hopper which is easy to fill ensures that little time is lost replenishing the supply of seed potatoes. What also saves time is your ability to make changes to the planting settings from inside the cab of your tractor. Brushes that clean the cups automatically have the advantage that planting does not have to be interrupted for tedious and time-consuming cleaning.
Connecting to the GPS system in your tractor means you can automatically specify the planting area. The tramlines can also be set, and you can opt for fully automatic application of granulate, fertiliser and/or crop protection. You save one working pass, and that cuts costs and results in high planting capacity.
The Miedema CP cup planter is designed to prevent product damage and mixing. The flat shape of the hydraulic hopper bottom eliminates a potential source of damage to the potatoes. Specially designed planting cups mean that the seed potatoes are carefully and efficiently placed in the furrow.
Our unique Precision Planting system ensures that the seed potato is placed correctly. The system plants very accurately, at exactly the same intervals, the correct depth and in a perfectly straight line in the centre of the ridge. Our CP cup planter creates the best growing conditions for your potatoes.
When using the optional ridging hood or lattice roller you place the seed potatoes precisely in the centre of a sturdy ridge. The fact that the formed ridge has a relatively small surface area relative to its volume means there is less evaporation. This creates a stable growing climate because the potato is better able to retain the required moisture.
Miedema CP cup planters make accurate planting of your potatoes very easy. Specifying settings such as planting depth and spacing in the row is a breeze. The easy-to-read HMI screen shows you any missers, so you can make necessary planting adjustments straightaway. A large hopper keeps the time spent loading more seed potatoes to a minimum. The cups are cleaned automatically by brushes so you avoid the tedious and time-consuming task of cleaning them by hand.
If you want to enjoy ultimate ease of use, you can choose the HMI Planting Comfort option. The planting area is mapped out and our CP cup planter automatically ensures accurate planting. Rows are automatically deactivated when the machine extends beyond the defined planting area. By connecting the planter to the GPS system in the tractor, you can also create the tramlines automatically. If you choose HMI GPS Planting Control, you can even have the system apply varying quantities of granulate and/or fertiliser to predefined areas during planting - nothing could be simpler!
The Miedema CP cup planter is designed to increase efficiency during potato planting and so save costs. Aside from its sturdy construction, this is achieved through the machine's many technical advances.
Miedema is miles ahead when it comes to GPS technology. For instance, you can opt for a CP cup planter with HMI Planting Comfort so you can define the planting area and the headlands. Planting only takes place where specified, because the planting rows are automatically deactivated if they extend beyond the set GPS coordinates. The result is complete planting of your planting area, no product wastage and higher efficiency.
Our cup planter can even save you complete working passes, because it is possible to simultaneously apply granulate, fertiliser and/or crop protection automatically. In addition, the Miedema CB full-field cultivator has been specially designed for use in combination with a Miedema CP planter with ridging hood (Smart-Float system). A sensor ensures that the cultivator depth is set to exactly match the configured planting depth. MR-Control automatically regulates the filling of the ridge hood and guarantees full ridges. The accurate ground tracking of the hood means there is less drag on the soil, so you save on fuel costs.
