Even sowing of the seeds is very important because the quality of the crop depends on it. For this reason, the aim is to sow without a culvert caused by an obstruction of the seed hose. For this purpose, a patency control system has been developed for hoses that allow the seed to enter the ground. This allows to ensure the uniformity of seeding, which is very desirable nowadays. The developed method consists in mounting parallel sensors built into the head or on the output nozzles from the head and sensors in the coulters from which information will be transmitted to the monitoring system.
