Väderstad has launched a new fertiliser placement kit designed as an attachment for the combination cultivator TopDown and the heavy tined cultivator Opus.
The fertiliser kit includes a distributor head that distributes the fertiliser, metered out from the front hopper Väderstad FH 2200. From the distributor head the fertiliser is distributed to each cultivator tine, working down to 30cm depth.
The fertiliser is placed behind each tine at a pre-selected depth. The operator can either choose to place the fertiliser at full depth, on the field surface, or 50/50 deep and shallow.
The fertiliser kit will be available from October 2017.
