The Bracke P12.a is intended for planting in warm, dry conditions. It is suitable for plantation forestry, e.g. eucalyptus plantations. The Bracke P12.a can perform the entire scarification and planting process, or solely planting.
New seedling carousel
The P12 is equipped with our new, bigger, seedling carousel. Instead of the 62, 72 or 88 seedlings the old carousel could be loaded with, the new carousel takes no fewer than 196 seedlings resulting in a significant increase in production.
Irrigation and fertilization
Integrated systems for irrigation and fertilization are available as optional equipment for the Bracke P12. Irrigation is achieved either by water gel or with water through the planting tube. Fertilization is by granulated fertilizer via two tubes located on each side of the planting tube.
The Bracke P12.a makes a planting spot at the bottom of a hole. The hole is formed by a specially designed foot; the seedling is placed in the bottom of the hole and, if the P12 is equipped with fertilization, granulated fertilizer is released at the same time through two separate pipes. Irrigation is achieved either using water gel while planting is in progress, or by water administered around the seedling during planting.
To achieve a good planting spot, the soil must be loosened. This can take place beforehand using some kind of scarifier, such as a ripper. The Bracke P12.a can be fitted with a sub-soiler to loosen up soil with the planter at each planting spot.
