Row sowing injector

Tests in special demonstration fields have shown that the application of slurry instead of artificial fertiliser produces the same yield under normal growing conditions, and in most cases an even higher yield! This means savings on artificial fertiliser and a way of disposing of slurry.

Practical experience has shown that there is no loss of capacity when sowing maize together with the use of slurry in one operation compared to conventional sowing of maize. In fact, sowing maize in combination with an application of slurry to the rows even surpasses the results of sowing maize and applying fertiliser in two passes. Slootsmid's shallow injection technology formed the basis for the development of this slurry application unit. 

 

 

 

 

 

Row sowing injector

  • Available in 6, 8 and 12 rows. 
  • No capacity loss compared to conventional corn seeding. 
  • Gift up to 50 m³ per hectare as possible.
  • Robust combination Slootsmid, simple builing on excisting corn seeders. 

 

The Slootsmid row fertilization set is suitable for mounting on various brands maize seeders, type 6-, 8-, or 12-rows. Between the unit and the pressure rollers is a fertilizing element mounted. This fertilization elements consist of two angled discs, two manure discharge tubes with rubber slurry outlets and a hydraulic locking system for the manure supply. The two disk coulters make a slit on both sides of the corn row. Here is by means of a rubber slurry outlet, approximately 8 cm on each side next to the corn row, manure added. For the distribution, a Slootsmid distributor is mounted. This ensures that there is an even distribution of manure about all elements takes place.
