    variable rate drilling using accord metering

    I have an old vaderstad rapid with accord metering (1995)

    This has a motor to adjust the seed rate and looks to have been set up for variable rate drilling in the past

    I only have standard vaderstad control box

    What is the most cost effective way to get this drill to do variable rate drilling?

    Don't know cost but soyl do a box for vari rate drilling. We have tested 20 ha for soil conductivity to try it and they are giving me demo unit to drill it.

    key thing to look for, is the vaderstad control box the RDA with the separate strip down the right hand side of it, this will have +/- buttons at the top, turn the box around and look at the cabling at the back, there should be a socket, blanked off with the words GPS next to it. If this doesn't exist then i would say it won't do variable rate. If it does check that the software version is 1.15 if not update required. SOYL Opti will control the vaderstad if your box is correct.
