Salford is giving growers the ability to apply either in-row, pop-up, or banded granular starter fertilizer with the ease and maneuverability that comes with a planter-mounted fertilizer applicator.

The company’s new Ferti-GO 4S features a single product hopper, available for mounting on many planter models, with variable rate metering and four-section control.

“With this metering system, the Ferti-GO 4S allows producers to feed fertilizer to their openers or application coulters accurately at rates low enough to apply in-row, pop-up fertilizer.” says Brad Baker, Salford’s senior product manager. “With flexible roller options and a range of application rate abilities, the Ferti-GO 4S can also accurately meter banded starter fertilizer.”

The new applicator was featured at the recent National Farm Machinery Show in Louisville, Kentucky. The Ferti-GO 4S hopper has a standard four-ton capacity but can expand to six tons with optional hopper extensions. Mounting legs are available for common late-model planters that are designed to carry nutrient systems on board. By mounting directly on the planter, the Ferti-GO 4S saves producers from difficulties with road transport and in-field maneuverability, adds Baker.
