6-Row 3 Meter Transport Pull-Type Yield-Pro® Planter
The widely acclaimed seeding precision, build-quality and reliability of the Great Plains Yield-Pro® Planter is now available to farmers across Western Europe in the shape of the YPE range.
The new YPE-625A planter folds hydraulically laterally and forward, has a transport width of less than 3 metres* and can plant a wide range of row-sown crops.
You can sow 6 single rows with spacing options of 70, 75, 76.2, 80 and 91.4cm spacing. Alternatively, with Great Plains’ innovative Twin-Row arrangement, the YPE range can sow 12 rows with spacings of 75, 76.2, 80 and 91.4cm. The machine is available with fertiliser application as an option. Incorporating a number of field-proven Great Plains technologies, the YPE range delivers an outstanding combination of accurate depth control and output. This results in uniform emergence and higher yields even on difficult and uneven seedbeds or when operating a minimum tillage or direct seeding system.

Tough and durable with forged steel parallel linkage arms providing weight and strength, the Great Plains Series 25 Opener is well-proven for its reliability and consistently accurate seed depth control.
Poly seed boxes provide consistent gravity feed to Air-Pro® Meters. Designed for row spacing down to 20cm twin row. Each has a 56 litre capacity per row. Shown here with optional insecticide hopper included.
A full-width 1800 litre capacity fertiliser hopper allows easy filling with big bags or bulk fill with a loader, reducing filling time and frequency. A foldable loading platform with incorporated ladder provides quick, easy access to the fertiliser hopper.
3M Transport Width
YPE-625A and YPE-825A Planters fold hydraulically laterally and forward. All single and Twin-Row models up to 76.2cm spacing have a transport width of 3 metres. All models in the range have a transport height of 3.6 metres or less.
Plants that emerge days after the rest basically become a weed that robs nutrients and light from good neighbouring plants. This can significantly reduce yield potential. Planter accuracy plays a major role in achieving even emergence. The Air-Pro® Meter is proven to maintain over 99% accuracy at working speeds of 8 to 10 km/hour.
Clearshot Seed Tube®
Great Plains’ Clear-Shot® Seed Tube provides every seed with a smooth, uninterrupted path to the bottom of the seed trench and maintains unmatched accuracy at faster “dead drop” speeds. Exterior mounted Clear-Shot® sensors see through the translucent seed tube material so there is no sensor to disrupt the seed path. Clear-Shot® has a rounded tip to place the seed in the middle of the trench.
Great Plains Yield-Pro® utilise a positive air flow system which discharges exhaust directly towards, and in close proximity to, the ground - not “directed away from the ground” and into the atmosphere.
