2 methods for the optimum metering of mineral fertiliser

AMAZONE offers two options for optimum metering with the manual single shutter, which can be used as a low application rate slide for lime, or the electric double shutter for mineral fertiliser. In the simplest equipment level, the single shutter enables forward-speed related rate control.

The intelligent interaction of the floor belt speed and electric double shutter enables quick and precise regulation. As a result, side-independent metering is possible when using application maps or part-width section control.
