EasyMix – processing via the App

The first of the awards received by Amazonen-Werke goes to EasyMix, one of the components of the new Amazone mySpreader App. EasyMix is used for simplifying the evaluation and adjustment when spreading blended fertilisers. Different fertilisers are often mixed together to save on the number of applications and so reduced operating costs. However, accurate application of blended fertilisers gets increasingly more difficult as a result of wider working widths, as the different fertilisers have different trajectories. Finding the correct setting for all the various constituents is often very difficult. With EasyMix, Amazone now offers a tool that can check the suitability of mixing the different constituents in the blend and find the best possible compromise for the setting; knowing the spreading nature of the different fertiliser in the mix.
 

AmaSelect Row

The second award-winning innovation for Amazone, AmaSelect Row, enables all sprayers equipped with AmaSelect nozzle bodies to switch from the tractor seat from whole-area application to row-based band spraying. This enables the grower to reduce consumption of plant protection agents by up to 65%. This requires special SpotFan 40-03 nozzles with a spraying angle of just 40°. These nozzles work without overlap and apply 100% of the plant protection agent across the whole width of the spray cone. As standard, band applications can be carried out on a 50 cm row spacing but, by means of the nozzle extension kit, row spacings of 25 cm and 75 cm can also be achieved. Switching between individual nozzle positions, or between whole-area and band application can easily be achieved at the press of a button on the terminal. The combination of the AmaSelect nozzle body with the active ContourControl boom guidance system fully maximises the advantages of the system, as maintaining the height above the target is particularly important in this case.
 

Amazone_AmaSense Weather
AmaSense Weather, the temperature and air humidity sensor

Silver medal No. 3 was given to Amazone in conjunction with eight other partners for the Nevonex system powered by Bosch. Amazone has developed the AmaSense Weather feature for the accessible and neutral digital ecosystem. Plant protection agents react differently and with varying levels of efficacy in changing weather conditions. Temperature and air humidity change with the time of day and the topography of the field. AmaSense Weather is a sensor that allows Amazone crop protection sprayers to recognise the current temperature and air humidity. The integration of the sensor into the Nevonex system makes it possible to provide the sensor data to the farmer, agronomist or an external expert system. The user can immediately respond when critical thresholds are reached during application. The knowledge of the whereabouts of the boundaries of part-areas with a different micro-climate increases each time the crop protection sprayer drives over the field. The plant protection treatment can thus be adapted to the micro-climate of these part-areas, which further increases the efficacy of the plant protection agents applied.

At Agritechnica, AMAZONEN-WERKE will exhibit to visitors, across a 2700 m² stand in Hall 9, more than 60 different machines and functional models, including 30 new machines and agronomical solutions.

The 250,000th Amazone drill sold

The origin of the seed drill’s history stretches back to 1947, when Dipl. Eng. Heinrich Dreyer worked together with Mr Kademann to develop the first D1 seed drill that had a working width of 2 m and which was equipped with the innovative Elite seed wheel for and easy switch between fine and normal seeds. This seed drill revolutionised the drilling of catch crops because, unlike other seed drills of that time, the D1 didn’t need the seed wheels to be constantly changed.

Amazone RoTeC coulters – in use more than 1.5 million over

An Amazone innovation enjoys a very special anniversary with 1.5 million RoTeC single disc coulters now in use. And, at the standard row spacings of between 12.5 cm and 16.6 cm, this would correspond to a total working width of over 200 kilometres! The RoTeC coulter shows its strengths particularly under difficult mulch sowing conditions – when, for example, dealing with large quantities of crop residues and on damp, heavy and sticky soils.

Get a ZA-M ecoSPECIAL for just £4,950

Irrespective of the amount of fertiliser being spread on a farm, it is an expensive commodity that needs to be accurately applied. The ZA-M range of spreaders has been at the forefront of fertiliser spreading on British farms for decades and the simple mix of gentle fertiliser handling with the SBS – Soft ballistic System – and the high quality components made from stainless steel and plastic make it both easy on the fertiliser and easy on the pocket.
