Rowseed S Single row seeders

Light single row seeder, tractor mounted.

Our WINTERSTEIGER single row seeders were specially developed for precise sowing of seed from a single ear and/or from single plants and thus support comparisons between ears or their progeny.


A variety of distribution systems allows for mix-free distribution of the seeds of a single ear within a row. The
modular system with its many options allows you to customize the machine for many different applications.


The XL and XXL frame variants also allow for a combination with a belted cone and thus drill seeding.

Your benefits summed up:

  • Easy and safe operations thanks to a clear-cut layout
  • Easy track width and row spacing adjustment
  • Wide range of applications thanks to a variety of feeding options such as magazine systems, central seed distributor, single funnel and the combination with belted cone for drill seeding
  • Seed placement for a variety of soil conditions thanks to a selection of opener systems

Feed system.

The distribution system is fed by a filling funnel, a rotary distributor,a predistributor, or a magazine system.


Manual feeding via individual filling funnels.

One filling funnel exists for each row and is lifted by the GSC control unit.


Rotary distributor.


The electrically driven rotary distributor distributes the seed evenly across the sowing rows.

Central seed distributor.

1 to 3 central seed distributors can simultaneously feed seeds to multiple belted cones.


Automatic feeding via magazine system.

Prior to planting seeds are filled into magazines. Depending on your needs there are 4, 6 and 12 cell magazines available, each cell representing 1 row. 10 magazines are loaded on to a plate. During planting the plates with the magazines are loaded on the planter without interrupting the planting process. In combination with the electronic measuring wheel the seeds are fed automatically into the belt cones. The empty magazines are discharged via a chute into a collecting container.

Distribution systems.


Belted cones for single row sowing.

2 to 6 small belted cones with a diameter of 120 or 195 mm are located adjacently (1 belted cone per row).


Belted cone for drill seeding.

In addition to single row feeding with a magazine system or single funnel, a belted cone (Ø 290 mm) can be installed for drill seeding. This means that the machine can be used both for single row sowing and for plot seeding.

Slope compensation.


Slope compensation.

Slope compensation ensures even distribution of seed in the belted cone/cell wheel and distributor housing despite
sloping ground. If you are sowing on a flat surface, you can work without slope compensation.

Global Seed Control (GSC) control unit.

Steuerung Global Seed Control (GSC)

Global Seed Control (GSC) is a perfect solution for the WINTERSTEIGER single row seeders and offers the highest
efficiency and precision in planting single rows.


The control unit is characterized by the following features:



  • Easy controls via function keys
  • Clear, high-contrast display

Setting options:

  • User menu language setting
  • Easy setting of different plot parameters, such as the plot length, cycle length, selected speed, start length, drive mode, and number of plots per trip
  • Distribution system adjustment: selection of distribution system (e.g. belted cone, magazine, etc.) and setting of filling times (e.g. funnel stroke time, seed drop time)


  • Displays the drive train settings required for the selected plot parameters
  • Monitoring of all critical functions and malfunction cause display. In plot drilling, this means power monitoring of the rotary distributor so that feeding or the funnel stroke is blocked in case of a malfunction. In case of single row seeding, the magazine feed drives are monitored, and a warning is issued for empty magazines.

Travel measuring system via measuring wheel.


The measuring wheel greatly facilitates sowing since there is no need for field markers; at the same time, it improves efficiency and precision. The GSC provides the following functions in combination with the measuring wheel:


  • The sowing cycle is triggered by a signal from the measuring wheel
  • A warning signal occurs in case of excessive speed
