Pioneer’s Sand and Sorting Machine Gets New Job title Pioneer Sand and sorting machine gets new job
The Pioneer Sorting and Seeding Machine (PSMS) at the Pioneer Seed, Inc. plant is being installed by a company called Sand & Sorting Solutions, a subsidiary of Pioneer.
The machine is a large rectangular, hand-built model with a rotating disc that turns and then tilts to allow the operator to sort the seeds into different bins.
The first phase of the project began on June 15, with the machines starting work on a warehouse at the University of Utah, according to the company’s website.
The company has an inventory of approximately 3,000 machines.
The plant is a partnership between Pioneer and the University, which has an agreement to share seed.
The Utah plant is expected to begin processing seed in mid-October, and the first shipments of seed will arrive in November, according the company.
The PSC website describes the PSMS as a “modern, easy-to-use, environmentally-friendly seed sorting machine.”
The company says that it can be used to process seed that’s been damaged in shipping, has a damaged seed bag, or has been damaged by a fire.
The machines are equipped with a high-speed digital video camera that’s used to take photos of seeds and record the seed’s orientation, so the seed can be sorted into a different bin before being put into a storage bin, according.
The process can take a few minutes, but the seed will be processed faster because the machine’s rotational motion slows down the sorting process, according with the company, and because the seed itself is not damaged.
The PSMS can be programmed to work with any seed.
It’s also designed to handle seed that has a high germination rate and a good germination percentage.
The Pioneer Seed website says the PSM is “built to handle the highest yield potential” of the most popular seed varieties, such as Sargent’s Gold, the Sargant’s Gold and the Pioneer Gold.
Pioneer has been working with Utah’s university for more than a year to install the machine, and has received permission from the university to start the process, the company said.
The university plans to install a new, larger machine to be installed by March.
The new machines will be available to farmers and seed producers in the state.
The two companies are not disclosing any specific numbers of seed they’re expecting to receive, but Pioneer says it expects to receive approximately 200,000 seeds.
The Oregon State University, the University at Albany, the Agricultural College of Wisconsin and the Agricultural and Mechanical University of Minnesota have already installed the machines.
