Next Generation Harrington Seed Destructor - iHSD V12

The iHSD V12 SEED DESTRUCTOR is our most impressive configuration yet. It is a simple vertical, mechanical direct drive system that is low cost to farmer’s and low maintenance.

The iHSD attachment is designed and manufactured in Australia by de Bruin Engineering for easy installation in-field to suit a growing list of combine harvesters including, CASE IH, New Holland, John Deere and CLAAS.

The fully integrated system assists farmers to DESTROY up to 99.9% of targeted weed seeds as they harvest in a single pass (AHRI/UniSA).

“I like the simple (direct) drive system of this model (Harrington Seed Destructor V12) and I personally feel that this is one of the biggest steps forward in agriculture in recent years. It didn’t limit the header at all for us. We were operating at the full 3000 RPM and at the same (ground) speeds.“

“I have used the previous version and the latest V12 Harrington Seed Destructor, the new V12 is much simpler than the previous model. The inclusion of a stone trap creates piece of mind, plus better access to the sieves. I recommend the new iHSD V12 as a pillar of any weed management programme.”

iHSD V12 Seed Destructor: A fully integrated system

The fully integrated system assists farmers to DESTROY up to 99.9% of targeted weed seeds as they harvest in a single pass (AHRI/UniSA).

Integrated Technology

iHSD is installed neatly into a combine harvester, rear of the seives, and processes the chaff fraction of harvest waste.

Simply bypass the iHSD for easy grain loss checks, windrowing and/or harvesting without the seed destructor.

Using patented technology, iHSD mills ‘DESTRUCT’ weed seeds without the use of chemicals or burning.

Superior Weed Management

iHSD is not genetically selective to herbicide resistant weeds, meaning, herbicide resistant weeds can be controlled effectively at harvest time.

‘DESTRUCTING’ resistant weed seeds makes conventional herbicide control more effective in following seasons.

Increased Productivity

No carting. No burning. No handling.

iHSD is a single-pass HWSC solution, it requires no additional labour compared to regular harvesting.

Persistent iHSD use depletes the soil seed bank and targets herbicide resistant weed populations, this results in fewer herbicide treatments.

Improved Soil Health

Processed chaff is returned to the soil as more readily broken down organic residue, helping to retain soil moisture and promoting a healthy microbiology, with fewer organic supplement treatments.

Improved soil health and fewer weeds equals increased crop yields.

Who's managing your farm? No, it's not you! You might think you are... but weeds are managing your farm! They determine what you plant, when you sow, row spacing, your spraying programme and ultimately influence your yields!
