Planting machine especially designed for planting of minitubers.
Every row is equipped with a dosing belt including a vibrating plate on top of it which makes that the minitubers are in one equal line behind each other at the end of the belt. From the end of the belt the tubers are guided downwards by a pintle belt which drops the tubers one by one in the soil. Because the tubers are guided downwards until they are very close to the surface of the field there is almost no rolling of the tubers when they are dropped. By the parallelogram an equal planting depth is guaranteed. The planting depth is set by a wheel at the back of the coulter.
