Horstine Agroband can be used for fertiliser placement or for bed top application of fertiliser during potato crop establishment. Fertiliser is delivered from the 800L translucent hopper to the outlets using gravity rather than a pneumatic fan, reducing cost and keeping the applicator simple. Agroband can precisely apply cheaper grades of solid fertiliser, maximising yield potential and keeping establishment costs in check.
Precision Fertiliser Application - Horstine’s precision metering system provides extremely accurate application of solid fertilisers, with each product outlet being fed by its own individual rotor. This system of metering provides guaranteed application accuracy across the full width of the implement.
Application Control - Agroband comes as standard with a heavy duty land wheel drive, ensuring application rates remain correct as forward speed fluctuates. Customer wishing to use an automatic rate controller can specify a hydraulic metering drive and a Horstine Wizard controller. The Wizard application controller is used to compensate for changes in forward speed and can also allow the application rate to be changed quickly and easily from inside the cab. More information on controller specifications.
Two Versions - Agroband comes in two separate specifications, setup to achieve the following applications:
- Placement below and to the side of the tuber
- Bed top application
- STANDARD KIT
- BASE UNIT
- CONTROLLER BASED OPTIONS
- MOUNTING OPTIONS
