High-Speed Anhydrous Ammonia Application

07/22/2014 @ 4:22pm

The new Great Plains Nutri-Pro 3000-12C30 features a 22-inch anhydrous coulter blade for precise, high-speed anhydrous ammonia placement with minimal ground disturbance. The Nutri-Pro system can apply and seal anhydrous ammonia up to 6 inches deep at a speed of 8 mph.

“Because of its minimal disturbance, anhydrous fertilizer can be applied a month before spring planting, rather than applying in the fall and losing nitrogen to leeching and denitrification,” says Tom Evans, Great Plains.

After the coulter blade opens the soil, a rigid tine deposits the fertilizer deep into the trench. Spider sealers follow to tightly seal nutrients in the ground. RTK and GPS guidance allow for exact fertilizer placement.

A hydraulic system transfers weight to the wings, maintaining equal weight on all row units, yet closely following contours. Rear castering wheels provide excellent stability and maneuverability.

The Nutri-Pro 3000/4000 product line offers you a multi-functional applicator, available in three-section (3000 series) and five-section (4000 series) frames. Anhydrous application is offered in 30-inch and 20-inch spacings. The anhydrous tine can be easily changed to a liquid tine for liquid application. Raven AccuFlow is available for single- or dual-cooler configuration. As a dual-purpose machine, the Nutri-Pro system can be equipped with an even number of rows for pre-apply, then quickly converted to an odd number of rows for sidedress.
