EMERGENCE AND PRODUCTIVITY DRIVING PROFITABILITY
ValoTerra's new 100% electric architecture, redesigned metering box, and planting accuracy, uniformity guarantees improved emergence and productivity.
A New 56V architecture
We opted for a 56V system to unleash the performance potential of the ValoTerra planter. The 56V architecture means you can add more motors thanks to a generator capable of supplying almost 7.2kW of power. This capacity is a gateway towards ultra-precision agriculture. The new 56V system paves the way for smart planting. It offers variable rate, curve compensation, and row unit shutoff to optimise the characteristics of your fields.
Valoterra seed metering
The seed metering box is the planter’s core component. We have ensured it is precise and versatile, to meet the agronomic performance and crop diversification needs of the future. The ValoTerra’s metering box introduces a new benchmark for precision planters.
Beyond offering improved performance, it has been specifically designed to be easy to use, versatile and robust. Its electric motor and ergonomic design offer a great combination of leak-tightness and vacuum, providing utmost precision at high speed.
Easy to use
- Changing the seed discs is a breeze when you need
to switch from one seed variety to another
- Changing crops takes less than a minute per row
- Seed flow can be cut off to give access to the
metering box even when the hopper is full
- Easy to empty
- Pneumatic metering and smooth discs ensure perfect
distribution for a maximum range of seeds and crops
- Vacuum provides better performance of wider variety of seed
- Patented system for reducing the torque required to
drive the disc independently of the vacuum level
Seed metering unit
Several years of research and exchanges with farming professionals have enabled us to design a seed metering unit that is unbelievably well thought out.
From the metering box to machine maintenance, calibration and settings, everything has been optimised with the unique goal of saving you time.
Now, with the ValoTerra planter, you save time in and off the field.

A unique lifting hopper system !
Routine planter maintenance and servicing are essential for keeping the planter in perfect working order and guaranteeing its durability. Our team of specialists have therefore developed a patented lifting hopper system for easy maintenance at a convenient height. Adjustments are now easier to make and maintenance can be carried out safely and efficiently
With the ValoTerra metering unit, we have set a new benchmark in accurate and uniform planting. We have taken the key features contributing to the success of Monoshox metering units and improved them ! From increased penetration force and stability in all situations, to precision settings that closely match agronomic requirements, no effort is spared in unlocking the potential of your crops.
