AMAZONE - USA
Accurate and reliable application of liquid fertiliser directly when sowing
AMAZONE developed the FDC Fertiliser Delivery Cart specifically for dry farming locations. It can be used in combination with the Primera DMC seed drill, the Condor seed drill and the EDX precision air seeder. The Cart is hitched between the tractor and the towed seed drill. A pump with friction wheel drive transports the liquid fertiliser to the sowing coulters, which apply it to the soil. This combination is used to carry out sowing and starter fertilisation in a single pass. Liquid fertilisation in direct combination with sowing promotes early growth and saves an additional pass. The application of granular fertiliser is at its limits in these dry areas. Liquid fertiliser is immediately and fully available to the young plants at the start of their growth phase.
A combination of the FDC and a seed drill with its own granular fertiliser tank, even allows for the application of liquid fertiliser and mineral fertiliser in parallel in a single pass. Each plant can therefore be provided with nutrients, according to the environmental conditions, in an optimum way.
