Field trials prove the best border spreading results
The aim of the field trial was to demonstrate that border spreading systems and equipment not only offer ecological benefits but also have a great influence on the potential yield in the field boundary area. Precise technology is required to spread the full rate of fertiliser right up to the field boundary as well as to avoid any fertiliser losses outside the field boundary.

The Limiter provides a simple and precise introduction to border spreading systems. Especially with the Limiter V+ electric border spreading device, it is possible to harness the full potential of the field by responding to changing border situations from the tractor cab.


Key statements of the trial

  • “A wider working width or smaller field size increases the size of the return on a boundary spreading system.” 
  • “All border spreading systems can significantly reduce the amount of fertiliser thrown outside the boundary.” 
  • “With the ‘Lamella block’ and ‘Hydro’ systems, the percentage outside the field boundary is reduced to only 2.5 %.”

The diagram shows the border spreading operation, in which the aim was not to spread any fertiliser beyond the field boundary if possible.

Spread pattern simulator

The spread pattern simulator gives an intuitive introduction to how a fertiliser spreader works. Optimal settings for a variety of combinations of fertilisers and working widths can be clearly displayed and the influence that wind and fertiliser quality have also shown. Try it for yourself…
