Field trials prove the best border spreading results

The aim of the field trial was to demonstrate the fact that border spreading systems provide not only ecological benefits, but also that they 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, even at the larger working widths, as well as avoiding any fertiliser losses outside the field boundary.

AutoTS meets these requirements. This means that higher yields can be achieved, even at the field boundary.

Core messages of the trial

  • A wider working width or smaller field sizes increases the level of return on a boundary spreading system. 
  • The AutoTS spread patterns show a relatively even spread rate all the way up to the boundary where the rate then drops steeply. 
  • Any underdosage was clearly reduced by using AutoTS, which translates into higher yields.

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…
