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.

Examples of our direct drill coulters in action. The above video demonstrates the low disturbance nature of the JJM direct drill coulters through stubble and cover crop. The following video shows how the wide, staggered spacing allows trash to flow through the machine without getting clogged making it ideal for drilling into tall standing crops.
