Canola Seed Disc

Canola producers will appreciate the precise singulation and spacing accuracy delivered by the canola seed disc from Great Plains. The specially-designed disc is part of our already extensive list of Air-Pro® Meter Discs for seeding corn, soybeans, milo, sunflowers, cotton, wheat, and sugar beets.

The Air-Pro® Meter’s brushes and seed tube have also been optimized for seeding canola. Changes to the brushes and seed tube not only allow for canola singulation, but have also improved performance for other small seeds, such as milo. Seeds that are used at low rates and are prone to static cling will benefit from these changes to the Air-Pro® Meter.

Air-Pro® Meters are available on all Great Plains Yield-Pro® Planters. On some models, the Yield-Pro® Planter’s 25-Series Row Unit is capable of row spacings as narrow as 10 inches (25.4 cm) – which is especially significant for canola.

For growers who want to convert an existing Great Plains Yield-Pro® Planter, a Canola Field Kit is available for purchase. Kits include the canola disc as well as the improved brushes and seed tube.

Air-Pro Meter Canola Field Kit (Part Number - 403-684A) includes: 

  • 2 - 800-244C, Cable Tie 19x15 Pandu BT4S
  • 1 - 817-789C, Brush, Seed Drop
  • 1 - 817-827C, Seed Tube Air Meter 25 Series
  • 1 - 817-991C, Disc Canola 250 Cell
  • 1 - 891-118C, Brush, Strip, Long
  • 1 - 891-119C, Brush, Strip, Short
