Maintaining the set sowing rate is important to obtain an accurate number of plants and guarantee good yields. This can be achieved by mechanical systems – variators and gear reducers or by electric drive (mechatronic systems). The object of the present work is the device of a mechatronic system for setting and maintaining the sowing rate when sowing cereals. Dependencies are derived for determining the transfer function in the control mechatronic system. Its principle and structural schemes are presented
