Soil cultivation - Row dependent soil cultivation | FA 200

2-row under-root fertilisation or 2-row prehilling of ridges

The new FA 200 is a real all-rounder. For under-root fertilisation, the frame of the two row front cultivator Type FA 200 can be fitted with a 650 litre 2.2 metre wide fertilizer bunker, which can comfortably be filled with a front loading bucket. The advantage of the under-root fertilisation is that the potato is stimulated for an even root development. A unique feature is, that the feed of the fertilizer from the hopper to the spreaders is completely locked, so that dust and large lumps of fertilizer can not block the cooler etc. The two trailed wheels in the bed former allow for perfect traction and therefore for accurate fertilizer deposits at all times. On request, a cage roller can be fitted for a conventional cultivation technique. The GRIMME tank system TS 420 is authorized for liquid seed dressing onto the seed potatoes and/or into the furrow. It is available with a volume of 2 x 200 litres. In order to create an optimally pre-formed ridge without compaction by the tractor wheels, the FA 200 series can also be used as a two-row front cultivator for potato planting. In order to reduce the number of passes by tractors over the soil, the front mounted device is used in tandem with a suitable planting machine.

The feed of the fertilizer from the bunker to the spreaders is completely locked

The 2.2 m wide fertiliser box can be filled easily

Drive and setting of the fertiliser output via sprockets

Enables - in combination with a potato planter- an under-root fertilisation as well as the application of liquid seed dressing and furrow treatment agent

Benefits

  • Especially suitable for the combination with a potato planter in the tractor rear
  • Enables the so-called 5-in-1 planting process in combination with a 2-row planter
  • Even growth of the side roots of the potatoes due to an exact under-root placement of the fertiliser
  • Protection against aggressive fertiliser dusts by a completely closed supply of the fertiliser from the hopper to the spreader
  • The dosing unit is suitable for large quantities of fertiliser per hectare
  • A filling screen protects the metering unit from clumpy fertiliser and other foreign bodies
  • The 2.2 m wide fertiliser box can be filled easily with a tractor front loader
  • Protection of the fertiliser from weather influences by means of a folding tarpaulin as standard.
  • Good weight distribution of the machines on the tractor by using a front fertiliser or a front cultivator, incl. the tank system, in the front attachment and a potato planter mounted in the rear attachment
  • For cultivation in beds there are two wheels with perfect traction to ensure a secure drive of the fertiliser box for accurate deposit of fertilizer at all times.
  • A brake in the carriage roller prevents the fertiliser spreader from keep running when the machine is lifted.
  • Easy maintenance of the fertiliser box by use of a central lubrication point, fitted as standard
  • Precise application of liquid chemicals and furrow treatment agent with the approved tank system type TS 420 with a volume of 2 x 200 litres
  • Infinitely adjustable depth guidance by use of a carriage roller with a width of 1600 mm and a diameter of 450 mm
  • Low lifting force requirement due to optimally arranged components
  • Preforming of the ridges in front of the tractor wheels, respectively between the tractor wheels, avoids compaction of the loosened soil. Thus more loose soil is available for ridge shaping.
  • Spring loaded ridging bodies for stone protection
  • Especially recommended for Combi-machines
