Metered fertiliser application aims to reduce costs for salad and veg crops

Standen-Reflex has introduced a tractor-mounted precision placement fertiliser applicator, made specifically for salad and vegetable crop growers.

The UK-manufactured FA5-10 is designed to give accurate placement of synthetic or organic fertilisers via a proven metering unit from a land wheel drive. This is said to give more economical performance and hence reduced costs.

Up to five rows of fertiliser can be applied and metering units are individually adjustable. The track width is also adjustable between 1.5m and 1.8m.

The 2.4m-wide, stainless steel, plastic-covered hopper has a 960-litre capacity and features internal agitation and a filtering grill. The FA5-10 is also fitted with road lights as standard.
