Sky Agriculture is the result of a meeting of minds between farmers and machinery manufacturers. It was established as a new brand and launched at SIMA show in 2013 under the OPICO umbrella. In a short time Sky drills have made a huge impact on their home market in France and they are now being introduced into many other countries around the world including the UK.
The reason for the success is, as always, in the detail. The manufacturing of Sky products is done by Sulky at its 3 factories which employ state of the art manufacturing and painting facilities and of course expertise, know how and experience in agricultural machinery. The detailed quality control employed in the factories and superb finish of the product can be seen at a glance.
This expertise, knowledge and experience also extends into the field. Sky's founder and managing director, David Guy who is a farmer and an agricultural engineer has used his own farm to experiment and develop the machines the company markets today. The drills have each been designed and specified to meet the economic and agronomic challenges facing today's farmers and provide a practical solution for the customer.
The Sky team in France and the UK has been set up to provide top end, specialised technical support combined with a thorough knowledge of the agronomy behind the min-till and direct drilling techniques being employed. With economies of scale driving modern agriculture the drills have high seasonal workloads and we aim to provide unrivalled back up to the customers who invest in Sky products.
Furthermore, on well consolidated ploughing it can also be used in conventional systems.
It's low disturbance disc coulter and press wheel not only ensure minimal weed seed germination, they also keep hp requirement to a minimum.
A 6m EasyDrill typically takes 200hp to pull which reduces fuel consumption and tractor weight and consequently reduces damage to the soil structure when drilling in damp conditions.
To cope with intensive use, Sky have re-designed and improved the HD seeding line. This has reduced the cost of ownership through the introduction of fewer and more easily replaceable wearing parts which last longer.
The MaxiDrill is designed as a high speed trailed minimum tillage drill but works equally well on ploughed and prepared seedbeds and can be used as a no-till drill in certain conditions. Key to the MaxiDrill is the space within its construction which allows it to cope extremely well in wet, sticky and trashy conditions. Designed with a long chassis, the MaxiDrill has the largest coulter stagger on the market. This gives it maximum clearance ensuring unrivalled residue flow for drilling in heavy residue seedbeds late into the season when most other minimum tillage drills have been put away in the shed.
