Border spreading systems

Active protection for the environment

Economical, and in particular, extremely ecologically sensitive mineral fertilising requires responsible minded actions. According to new environmental directives, environmentally harmless fertilisation on the field edge is not possible without modern border spreading systems.

Side spreading (yield oriented setting)

The adjacent field is also in a crop. In this instance, the small amount of fertiliser being thrown beyond the field’s border can be tolerated. The fertiliser distribution inside the field is maintained so that there is still about 80 % of the actual spread rate even at the field’s edge.

Boundary spreading (environmentally oriented setting)

If the field is positioned next to a road or against a cycle path, no fertiliser should be thrown beyond the field border. In order to avoid over-fertilisation inside the field, the spread rate on the border side needs to be reduced. This results in slight under-fertilisation at the extreme of the field boundary. The border spreading procedure complies with the requirements of the Fertiliser Directive.

Water course spreading (environmentally oriented setting)

In cases where a water course is situated directly at the field’s edge, the fertiliser environmental legislation prescribes the maintenance of either a distance of one metre with the aid of a border spreading device, or as much as three metres when not using a border spreading device. In order to prevent over-fertilisation on the inside of the field, the spread rate from the side of the spreader towards the border again has to be reduced.

Side spreading – first tramline at the field edge

If the first tramline is at the edge of the field, side spreading (yield-oriented adjustment) is achieved by shutting off one side of the spread fan. Only a little fertiliser goes beyond the boundary of the field, and optimum fertilisation takes place within the boundary.

You can change over from normal spreading to side, boundary or water course spreading by means of a tool-less disc change.

Border spread deflector, left hand

The one-sided, manually folded spread deflector is a low-cost solution for carrying out boundary spreading on the left side in the direction of travel.

Row spreading attachment, both sides

The bed spreading deflector can be used to spread to the left, the right or to both sides and ensures that the tractor wheel track is left almost fertiliser free. It is adjustable for different sorts of fertiliser and is ideal for specialist crops and makes many types of operation possible. Mounting and dismounting is done quickly and easily without tools.

AMAZONE Limiter, right or left hand

With the ZA-M there is a choice: Limiter to the right or left hand side.

Modern tractors have most of the controls on the right next to the driver’s seat. In this case, border spreading is more convenient and comfortable using the right hand Limiter. The all-stainless steel Limiter is simply folded down into the spread fan. The lamella block then produces a direction change for part of the flow of fertiliser. An optimum spreading pattern is formed up to the border.

Perfect boundary and side spreading

Limiter

The Limiter is a modern boundary spreading system that is used if the first tramline is half the working width of the fertiliser spreader in from the edge of the field. It is used for side, boundary and water course spreading.

The decisive advantage with the Limiter is that there is no need to stop, interrupt the spreading operation or dismount from the tractor.

The EasySet in-cab terminal can be used to reduce the spread rate for boundary and water course spreading. AmaDos+ automatically adjusts the quantity to one side when the Limiter is in use.

The Limiter can be moved on a fixed frame within a generously dimensioned swivel range. This sets the Limiter to the required position for side, boundary or water course spreading, depending on the type of fertiliser. Exact details of this can be found in the setting chart and on a sticker on the machine. If the Limiter is not being used, it is conveniently swivelled up via a hydraulic cylinder.
