Launched in 2015, J.J.Metcalfe & Son have seen great success with their range of direct drill coulters.

Our tungsten carbide tipped, component based range of seed and fertiliser coulters are innovatively designed to convert Horsch CO series and sprinter drills into direct drills. Offering ultra-low disturbance and minimal soil disruption they are proving a popular choice among both established and budding no till farmers.

Our direct drill coulters offer the ideal solution to drilling directly into cover crops and thick standing crops. The tungsten carbide tip cuts through the soil, placing the seed directly beneath the residues of the previous crop.

Benefits of our Direct Drill Coulters:
    • Narrow, tungsten carbide tipped boron steel blade.
    • Ultra-low surface disturbance.
    • Accurate seed placement under residues of previous crop.
    • Minimal disruption to worm populace.
    • Wide spacing offers perfect opportunity to drill into tall standing crop.
