MultiBoom – individual switchpoints for seed, fertiliser and micro-granules
Two or three materials are individually metered via different metering units and delivered at separate entry points enabling the simultaneous application of different materials. Since the fertiliser coulter runs in front of the sowing coulter, the two metering units have to be switched at staggered intervals via GPS-Switch pro, in order to prevent overlaps or misses on the headland. The MultiBoom function automatically switches each metered material on and off at the headland with a time delay, in order to achieve optimum switch-on and switch-off points. If a micro-granular applicator is present, this can also be controlled on the basis of time.
The following practical advantages are provided:
- Precise switch on and off points in the field for each metered material – irrespective of the conveying system and product characteristics
- Prevention of overlaps and misses for fertiliser and seed
- More uniform plant growth
Maximum precision at the headland for each medium
