BorderTS border spreading system

Maximum amount of fertiliser right up to the field boundary

Grenzstreuverfahren BorderTS (1) BorderTS_DSC3282_d1_210827

AMAZONE has developed the BorderTS deflector for even more precise fertilisation up to the field boundary when spreading at those larger working widths. In contrast with conventional border spreading deflectors, the BorderTS deflector operates in collaboration with the AutoTS border spreading system integrated in the spreading discs. The spread patterns of both the BorderTS and the AutoTS are matched to each other.

All values can be stored in the spreader settings beforehand, so that the appropriate setting parameters are set automatically depending on the application situation.

  • Using the BorderTS border spreading system enables increased yields of up to 27% on the outer five metres of the field boundary area when compared with conventional border spreading systems.

“With the BorderTS, Amazone presents extended version of AutoTS, which delivers the full rate right up to the boundary.”

“…BorderTS can be used for base fertiliser applications, on grassland and in row crops. In addition, a pass is also possible for that initial application in cereal crops with tramlines, as in our case. The wheel tracks at the field edge disappear in time. The plants get the full fertiliser rate and start the new season in good shape.“

The BorderTS deflector is mounted centrally behind the spreader and is activated hydraulically.

When activated, the BorderTS deflector on the ZA-TS is swivelled into the spread fan from above. The special baffle plate construction and infinitely adjustable guide plate gently guide the granules to the ground.

Baffle plate construction and software integration

At large working widths, the fertiliser must be accelerated considerably more, in order to achieve a good area of overlap with the spread fan of the first tramline. Due to the high energy of the granules, the evenness of distribution behind the tractor provided by conventional systems is often unsatisfactory. The BorderTS deflector features a special baffle plate construction which includes a guide plate, the angle of which can be adjusted. The baffles first remove the energy from the granules, which are then gently guided to the ground by the guide plate. The guide plate is infinitely adjustable for optimal application up to the field boundary. In addition, a sensor detects the working position. When the deflector is in use, the spread rate and the delivery point of the fertiliser onto the spreading disc are automatically adjusted to ensure the best possible lateral distribution in combination with the disc-integrated AutoTS border spreading system.

It goes without saying that the application rate can be manually overridden at any time in response to special situations.

“Checking with the mats at the field boundary showed the effectiveness of the deflector in our application. At the same time, the fertiliser rate for the field was applied right up to the boundary after driving in the tramline and round the outside – excellent.“

Illustration of the combined use of BorderTS and AutoTS

  1. Fertiliser is spread from the edge of the field into the crop by the BorderTS deflector, with automatic reduction of the target rate to 50%. The shutter nearest the field boundary is left closed. 
  2. AutoTS spreads at 50% from the first tramline across to the boundary side to achieve the target rate across the total field boundary area. Normal spreading to the field side with 100 % of the target rate. 
  3. In the subsequent tramlines, normal spreading is resumed with 100% of the target rate to both sides.
