Support for needs-based fertilisation
When applying fertiliser, drivers have to juggle various tasks. Firstly, they need to ensure optimal lateral distribution of the material to be spread, as well as maintaining the desired application rate of the fertiliser. Secondly, they must ensure that the most appropriate border spreading mode is used alongside ditches, footpaths or field boundaries, to guarantee legally compliant and precise fertilisation. This can lead to operator errors, especially when changing drivers, as the right border spreading procedure is not activated or deactivated in the right place. Lack of driver knowledge can also lead to non-compliance when applying fertilisers.


Automation of complex switching processes and reduced driver workload
In the following application, the driver only needs to activate the previously plotted scenario and the fertiliser spreader will automatically perform the saved switching processes. GPS ScenarioControl enables the precise, resource-efficient use of fertiliser, as the various spreading procedures are performed in exactly the right places. This ensures that any subsequent applications by other drivers are legally compliant. In addition, drivers can use the pre-plotted, optimised field route as a guide.


Recording and storing the right driving strategy
When crossing the field for the first time with the fertiliser spreader, all the switching points, driving route and driving direction can be automatically plotted by an experienced driver via GPS ScenarioControl by pushing the record button. The switching points are clearly marked on the map and the driving direction is visualised with arrows. GPS ScenarioControl is integrated in the AmaTron 4 ISOBUS operator terminal and can be viewed and operated via the AmaTron Twin display extension.


The advantages at a glance:

  • Always the same switching processes with different fertiliser applications 
    – Prevention of operator errors 
    – Legally compliant and resource-efficient fertiliser application guaranteed  
    – Correct application in poor visibility, e.g. darkness or fog 
  • No flattening of crops because routes in the field are always optimised
    – Supports inexperienced drivers


GPS ScenarioControl can be used in conjunction with the AmaTron 4 ISOBUS operator terminal and the AmaTron Twin App.

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…
