The individual physical properties of a fertiliser exert a big influence on both the lateral distribution and the spread rate. For the mainline fertiliser types, AMAZONE prepares the data for the setting charts of each individual spreader model in the AMAZONE fertiliser test hall. This data can be accessed on the internet from the AMAZONE fertiliser database.
On top of this for fertilisers, whose origin is unknown and its spreadability uncertain, there is available also the AMAZONE “fertiliser service”. The "AMAZONE fertiliser service” determines the individual spreading qualities of your fertiliser based on testing a 3 kg sample and provides in return the basic setting recommendations in respect to the desired working width(s).
Another possibility on offer is the “mobile test kit “. By utilising this kit the lateral distribution can be checked in the actual field. More information on the topic of "conscientious fertiliser spreading" can be found in the Info sheet for Download
