Boom provides fertiliser precision

Boom provides fertiliser precision

A front mounted fertiliser distribution boom for crops grown in beds or rows is the latest development for Horstine's AirStream granular applicator. The 6m boom is used to apply fertiliser to the top of the beds or in bands for salad or brassica crops grown in rows and not the wheelings where it is of little use to the crop. Aimed at reducing wasted fertiliser Horstine will offer the 6m boom with manual or hydraulic folding. Attached to the AirStream unit via a frame the boom can be removed so the applicator can be used with fishtail spreaders for bed applications or with nozzles for use in row crop work. AirStream is available in two hopper size – 1,000 and 2,000 litres – with individual metering to each outlet with electronic rate adjustment. Headland shut off also aids fertiliser savings on field boundaries.
