The LEMKEN Heliodor compact disc harrow is now available to order combined with a Vogelsang DosiMat DMX precision spreader
The LEMKEN Heliodor compact disc harrow combined with a Vogelsang DosiMat DMX precision spreader results inis a powerful combination of two proven implements that is ideal for precise economical spreading and incorporation of liquid organic fertilisers.
The Heliodor offers a sound basis for this type of application, as it is compact and low-draught and therefore only places little additional demands on the tractor’s lifting and traction powers.
The DosiMat DMX is renowned for its very even transverse and longitudinal distribution, that is consistently maintained even at extremely low and extremely high application rates.
The way the two implements work together is very simple: Slurry is fed into the DosiMat from above, then processed inside by a flow-optimised rotor equipped with cutting blades, and then pushed into the individual outlets.
Fibre and foreign matter are reliably shredded in the process – this enables the precise distribution and helps to avoid any disruptive blockages from occurring.
The slurry then passes through hoses to the area behind the first row of discs on the Heliodor, from there it is injected into the soil and immediately incorporated by the second row of discs and the trailing roller.
In terms of economy, the Heliodor/DosiMat duo can offer value in line with current trends. With rising prices for mineral fertilisers forcing many growers to utilise the nutrients stored in their manure fertiliser.
This is achieved through precise application and effective mixing that helps to minimise nitrogen losses. This makes the process very economical. Contact the local Lemken division for model availability or your nearest dealer on mobile 0410 445 952, or see the website at: www.lemken.com
