SeedMaster is bringing some of its seeding technology to the application of granular herbicides and fertilizer.
The Emerald Park, Saskatchewan-based company debuted its 70′ Nova Flex granular applicator bar at Canada’s Farm Progress Show ’16 in Regina.
As research manager Owen Kinch explains in this video, the unit connects to SeedMaster’s Nova cart, either tow behind or tow between.
“It allows a grower to utilize his existing piece of machinery and use it for spreading products, taking advantage of all the conveniences and technologies associated with the Nova cart,” he says.
That includes overlap control, load cells on the tanks, the ability to adjust blends on the fly, the fill conveyer and increased tank capacity — features that generally are not available on other floaters or spreaders, he points out.
The 70′ model has 40 openers spaced 1’9″ apart.
