Economical, and in particular, extremely ecologically sensitive mineral fertilising requires responsible minded actions. According to new environmental directives, environmentally harmless fertilisation on the field edge is not possible without modern border spreading systems.
Side spreading (yield-oriented setting)
The adjacent field is an area which is used agriculturally. In this instance, the small amount of fertiliser being thrown beyond the field’s border can be tolerated. The full target rate is applied up to the field boundary.
Border spreading (environmentally oriented setting)
If the field is next to a road or a cycle path, no fertiliser may be thrown beyond the field boundary. In this case, the throwing distance is adjusted in combination with the shutter slide.
Water course spreading (environmentally oriented setting)
If there is a body of water directly at the edge of the field, a defined distance to the water must be maintained when fertilising according to the fertiliser regulations. For this purpose, the throwing distance is further reduced in combination with the shutter slide.
Border spreading with the border spread deflector
If the first tramline is situated at the field’s edge, border spreading (environmentally-orientated adjustment) is then achieved by utilising the half-side shut-off of the spread fan. No fertiliser is thrown beyond the field boundary and optimum fertilisation is maintained inside the field.
