DB-Xtream Seeding Systems

The DBX seeding system has been developed with a focus on soil structure, sustainability and profits. Knowledge sources built-up over many years of industry experience have been drawn on to provide the ultimate in maximized performance and yields.

Precision seed placement from each individual DBX Unit, combined with effective under-seed cultivation at depth, are just two of the key reasons why farmers continue to reap the rewards from this unique product.

DB-Xtream Features

Product Features

  • The seeders are capable of handling liquid and granular fertilizers.
  • All products comprise electro-hydraulic control systems to facilitate the highest degree of precision farming.
  • Both the spreaders and sprayers are based on the same precision farming controller processors employed on the planters, thus facilitating multiple use of equipment for the end user.
  • Products were developed with the sole focus to facilitate natural ecological processes in the soil. This approach is the basis upon which a gross impact of 50% and more savings on input cost could be made. The effect was not only maintenance of historical yield, but an improvement of 1,5 to 2 times that.

Who we are

Who we are

X Farm offers superior precision-seeding implements to the agricultural industry.

From our ground-breaking research we develop simple yet sophisticated designs.

This is X Farm’s philosophy. Uncomplicated yet efficient machines that farmers can trust.

Our aim is two-fold:

  • Ensure end-user profitability.
  • Sustain the overall health of the environment.

DB Xtream Planters

The very earliest planters have now been in operation for 15 years, some have changed ownership up to four times and the life limit of these machines have still not been reached.

The bulk of maintenance on the planter is obviously derived from the ground engaging parts, which prove the durability of the product.

The product is designed to last under harsh African conditions. Besides this physical attribute, it is the perfect fit for conservation agriculture (no till), which has been proven to be the only way forward for long term sustainable farming.

Farmers have seen the increased crop yields, as much as double in certain circumstances due to better water management. Through this sustainable means of conservation agriculture we are providing hope for increased food production for a demanding and growing population.

The planters show remarkable resale value, depreciating 20% in the first year and thereafter 10% per year, eventually settling at 60% of the value of a new planter of the same type. This has been proven on many occasions at auctions and changes in ownership, the details of which are available on request.

The DBX Seeding System has been developed with a focus on soil structure, sustainability and profits.

Knowledge sources built-up over many years of industry experience have been drawn on to provide the ultimate in maximized performance and yields.

Precision seed placement from each individual DBX Unit, combined with effective under-seed cultivation at depth, are just two of the key reasons why farmers continue to reap the rewards from this unique product.

The seeders are capable of handling liquid and granular fertilizers and comprise electro-hydraulic control systems to facilitate the highest degree of precision farming.

Air seeders are available in numerous configurations and can be drawbar mounted, tow-behind or tow-between.

DB Xtream Sprayers

DB Xtream Sprayers

Both the spreaders and sprayers are based on the same precision farming controller processors employed on the planters, thus facilitating multiple use of equipment for the end user.

Our top of the range self-propelled sprayer with central booms for greater stability. High stability allows applications to be performed at 32km/h. 185KW 6 cylinder turbo charged engine and 3100 litre chemical tank. Boom length of 30 metres, adjustable wheel base up to 3.5 metres and a ground clearance of 1.65 metres. Boom’s working height can be adjusted from 0.7 metres to 2.2 metres.

Rugged design with shock absorbing towbar. Larger tyres allow for greater floatation that prevents soil structure damage. Booms range from 24 to 36 metre widths, and are hydraulically controlled from within the cab.

Xpray field sprayers are tractor mounted with 800 & 1000 litre tanks drawn with 4500 litre tank capacity and booms ranging in sizes from 24 to 36 metres. Xpray field sprayers are available in tractor mounted or tractor drawn models. Tractor mounted sprayers have 12m booms on 800 litre tanks while tractor drawn sprayers’ booms range from 18 to 24 metres off 2400 litre tanks.

DB Xtream Spreaders

DB Xtream Spreaders

Trailed Spreader

Double overlap design ensures uniform spread. Spreading pattern of up to 36 metres for granular fertilizers and 13 metres for lime can be achieved. Spinner speed can be set from within the cab from 500 to 1000 r.p.m.
Wide tyres allow for higher floatation and therefore prevents soil structure damage. Two sizes are available: 10 and 16 tons.

Three-Point Hitch Spreader

The tractor mounted hopper can accommodate up to 2500 litres/kg of fertilizer.
Spreading discs can accurately regulate spreading width from 12 to 32 metres.
All components in contact with fertilizer are stainless steel.

    DBX Planter

    Die DBX saadplasing- meganisme is weliswaar soortgelyk aan baie wat dit al nageboots het, maar is hier ongetwyfeld fynere detail ter sprake. Die uitleg en ja EENVOUDIGE ontwerp maak dat die planter besonder akkuraat werk en meganies in moeilike terrein gemaklik die mas opkom. Dan is ek ook van mening dat Rinus se elektroniese agtergrond en kundigheid gesorg het dat die planter- elektronika vanuit die staanspoor korrek en sonder veel moeite met my ander implemente en toerusting geintegreer is. Ek is vanuit die staanspoor van goeie en kundige raad bedien. Die planter vaar inderdaad veel beter as wat ek verwag het
