Slope spreading kit – Precise fertiliser distribution on slopes
Uniform crops, even on slopes
Exact fertiliser distribution over the entire working width is the basis for uniform and resource-efficient crop management as well as exploiting the full yield potential. This does not present any difficulty for modern-day technology in flat areas. On hilly terrain, the topography has a significant impact on the spread fan and thus fertiliser distribution in the field.
Simple special option with a high impact
The point where the material is delivered onto the disc in practice is changed by the inclination of the fertiliser spreader. The fertiliser is guided down onto the disc over a longer distance by means of the slope spreading kit, thereby minimising the impact of the slope to a considerable extent. Trials by the Innovation Farm in Austria have confirmed the ZA-V’s precise lateral distribution, even on hilly terrain.
- "Apart from economic aspects, this also has important ecological benefits for the environment."
- "Lateral distribution using the slope spreading kit: The variation with the slope spreading kit achieved [...] a coefficient of variation (CV) of 4.9%.”
