8 of the Best FS22 Seeder Mods

If you want to progress in Farming Simulator 22 (FS22), you’ll sooner or later need a seeder. However, just don’t settle for any seeder. Use one of the good ones.

Here are the FS22 seeder mods I like the best. I think you’ll like them too.

1. Bourgault FMS CD872-8

The smallest seeder from the FS19 Bourgault DLC has finally been converted and transferred to FS22. Well, the term small is relative. The working width is a good 8 meters.

However, compared to the much bigger 3320-76, not to mention the 3420-100 hoe drills, the Bourgault FMS CD872-8 is relatively very small…

Still, it’s an excellent seeder, mainly in mid-sized fields.

It’s pretty fast too. Giants Software has set the work speed to 18 kilometers per hour, 11 miles per hour. That makes the Bourgault seeder one of the fastest in the game.

Another great feature is that you can fill it with both seeds and fertilizer. Also, it’s a direct seeding seeder. It cultivates the soil before it puts down the seeds. Both features save you a ton of time.

  • Base Price: 182,500.
  • Direct seeding: Yes.
  • Required horsepower: 240.
  • Work speed: 18 kph, 11 mph.
  • Planting width: 8 meters.
  • Capacity: 7,200 liters.
  • Modder: Giants Software.
  • Errors: No.
  • Platforms: All.

2. Seed Hawk Pack

Do you miss the excellent Seed Hawk drill and air cart part of the FS17 Big Bud DLC? The wait is over sort of.

Two modders, Bcbuhler and Forward Agricultural, have worked together to bring a smaller Seed Hawk to FS22. And boy, have they done a great job!

Their Seed Hawk pack is made up of these tools:

  • The Seed Hawk 660 Air Cart with a total capacity of 21,800 liters (seeds and dry fertilizer.)
  • The magnificent Seed Hawk XL Air Drill is 65ft; the seeding width is 19.8 meters.

The air cart can be configured as a tow-behind or tow-between cart. There are other customization possibilities too:

  • 6 different wheel setups and one configuration for tracks.
  • You can put a conveyor on the air cart or let it be.

Another stylish feature is that you can dress the drill and the air cart in Seed Hawk or Väderstad colors. Huh? Väderstad, you might ask?

Yes, the Swedish company Väderstad bought Seed Hawk (the company) back in 2013. The mod reflects that.

  • Base Price: 375,000.
  • Direct seeding: Yes.
  • Required horsepower: 450.
  • Work speed: 15 kph, 9 mph.
  • Planting width: 19.8 meters.
  • Capacity: 21,800 liters.
  • Modder: Bcbuhler, Forward Agricultural.
  • Errors: No.
  • Platforms: All.

3. Horsch Evo 12.375

This in-game screenshot shows the Horsch Evo 12.375 being pulled by Claas tractor.
One of my favorite FS19 seeders is finally back in FS22.

Here’s the majestic Horsch Evo 12.375 that you might did use in FS19. I did for sure. I must indeed have spent over 100 hours in the previous game, pulling this magnificent piece of equipment,

That’s why I’m almost ecstatic to see it all dressed up for Farming Simulator 22 (FS22.) It’s so great to see it again, behind my tractors.

The seeder is part of the large Horsch pack mod for FS22. It’s one of 17 brilliant tools. You can read more about the other seeder in the pack further down.

Direct Seeding

One of several benefits of this Horsch seeder is that it allows you to plant your seeds immediately after the previous harvest is done. You don’t have to run a plow or a cultivator over the ground first.

The seeder will also keep you going for a while before you have to refill it:

  • The seed tank’s capacity is 5,000 liters.
  • So is the capacity of the solid fertilizer tank.

The model has gotten sound updates too. All of the seeder’s moving parts make some kind of sound, which is fantastic.

  • Brand: Horsch.
  • Base Price: 181,000.
  • Required power: 320 hp.
  • Seeding width: 12 meters.
  • Working speed: 18 kph, 11 mph.
  • Capacity: 10,000 liters.
  • Modder: Rubberburner89.
  • Errors: No.

4. Kverneland DG II 12000

A screenshot shows the Kverneland DG II 12000 with its seed drill unfolded.
Although it doesn’t cultivate nor fertilize, it’s still a great tool.

This is the Kverneland DG II 12000 seeder. It was part of the Kverneland and Vicon equipment pack DLC for FS19. Now, it’s a mod, free for everyone to use.

The FS22 version has several good things going on:

  • The seeding width is 12 meters.
  • It has a large tank; the capacity is 6,000 liters.
  • A horsepower requirement of just 230 hp means many tractors can pull it.

Tight Turns

The seeder hooks up to the lower hitch points of the tractor’s 3-point hitch. Because there’s a joint between the seeder’s hitch and the drawbar, it’s possible to make really tight turns.

There are some snags, though, at least to some players:

  • The DG II 12000 won’t do direct seeding. It doesn’t create a seedbed; you have to do it yourself using a cultivator, for example.
  • It doesn’t have a fertilizer tank. Other tools, like a spreader, must add the fertilizer your crops need.
  • Brand: Kverneland.
  • Base Price: 168,500.
  • Required power: 230 hp.
  • Seeding width: 12 meters.
  • Working speed: 18 kph, 11 mph.
  • Capacity: 6,000 liters.
  • Modder: Giants Software.
  • Errors: No.

5. Hatzenbichler Terminator TH18 and TH1400 Air Cart

A screenshot shows the Hatzenbichler Terminator TH18 air drill unfolded and connected to the TH1400 air cart.
This is a majestic setup that covers a lot of ground fast.

Finally, the Hatzenbichler Terminator TH18 air seeder and the TH1400 air cart are back. This seeding power pack made its rounds through both FS17 and FS19.

Now, thanks to Giants Software, it’s back in Farming Simulator 22 (FS22.)

Because of the heavy-duty cultivator of the Terminator TH18, you can sow right after a field is harvested. In other words, no need to plow or cultivate before putting seeds into the ground with this bad boy.

The textures have been updated, and extra sound effects have been added to the mod. You get the “clank” sound when hooking up the air cart to the seeder and lots of other soundbites.

It’s a great mod. You’ll cover a lot of ground quickly thanks to the massive air cart and a seeding width of 18 meters.

  • Brand: Hatzenbichler.
  • Base Price: 310,000.
  • Required power: 450 hp.
  • Seeding width: 18 meters.
  • Working speed: 18 kph, 11 mph.
  • Capacity: 14,720 liters.
  • Modder: Giants Software.
  • Errors: A few.

6. Case IH 5100

I love farming of all sizes. Extra large, large, medium, and small. And when I want to scale back, this Case IH 5100 seeder mod is just what I want and need.

This mod resembles one of the older grain drills from Case IH. Even though it’s an older model, I know many farmers still use real-life versions today.

The FS22 version has two hoppers: One for seeds and the other one for solid fertilizer.

Here are the customization options:

  • You can change the wheels.
  • It’s possible to add a license plate to the rear of the drill.

The seeder has two hitch frames, suitable for pulling 2more drills at once. Just be aware that the 6-meter-wide seeder doesn’t fold – You might be challenged when pulling it on roads with oncoming traffic.

Case IH 5100 Quick Facts

  • Base Price: 6,000.
  • Direct seeding: Yes.
  • Required horsepower: 60.
  • Work speed: 18 kph, 11 mph.
  • Planting width: 5.2 meters.
  • Capacity: 830 liters per filltype.
  • Modder: ARM-Team.
  • Errors: No.
  • Platforms: All.

7. Horsch Serto 12SC

A screenshot shows the Horsch Serto 12SC pulled by a John Deere tractor.
Remember to prepare a seedbed before using this one.

The Horsch Serto 12SC seeder has a well-deserved spot on the great FS22 seeder mods list. It’s another gem from the Horsch pack that I mentioned above.

All the seeder’s details have been upgraded for the new game. It even has matching audios for all moving parts. The sound upgrades are among the things I like the most about the mod.

It does also have some reasonably impressive tank stats:

  • 6,000 liters of seeds.
  • 4,000 liters of mineral fertilizer.

However, it doesn’t cultivate. You need to run a plow or cultivator before you can put seed into the soil with it.

I don’t see this as a problem, but I know a lot of players who prefer seeders that do both the cultivating and the seeding.

  • Brand: Horsch.
  • Base Price: 153,000.
  • Required power: 300 hp.
  • Seeding width: 12 meters.
  • Working speed: 18 kph, 11 mph.
  • Capacity: 10,000 liters.
  • Modder: Rubberburner89.
  • Errors: No.

8. Kuhn Espro 3000

A screenshot shows the Kuhn Espro 3000 seeder pulled by a John Deere 6M tractor.
It might be small, but it’s also capable of turning on the dime.

The Kuhn Espro 3000, the little brother of the vanilla game’s Kuhn Espro 6000 RC, has a definite spot on this list.

It made its Farming Simulator debut in FS17 as part of the Kuhn Equipment Pack DLC. Later, it was added as a mod to FS19 until it reappeared again in FS22.

I like several things about this small seeder, like how you can make tight turns thanks to the connection to the lower lift arms of the tractor’s 3-point hitch.

  • The pros? It does direct seeding. It lets you skip plows and cultivators.
  • The cons? It doesn’t have a fertilizer tank.

While you don’t have to prepare your fields before sowing with the Espro 3000, you must do two rounds of fertilizing besides the seeding run.

  • Brand: Kuhn.
  • Base Price: 45,000.
  • Required power: 110 hp.
  • Seeding width: 3 meters.
  • Working speed: 18 kph, 11 mph.
  • Capacity: 2,500 liters.
  • Modder: Ostry.
  • Errors: No.

A Quick-Guide to FS22 Seeders

Seeders, or seed drills, plant smaller seeds than planters.

Real-life versions plant the seeds in rows close to each other. A row spacing of 10—15 centimeters, 4—6 inches, is relatively standard.

In Farming Simulator 22, you can use a seeder to plant the following plants, provided you’re not playing on a modded map:

  • Wheat, barley, oat, and canola (rapeseed.)
  • Soybean, sorghum, oilseed radish, and grass.
