Spreader range helps to make farms “fit for the future”

Lemken’s three fertiliser spreader ranges have been performing well in the UK and Ireland, tying into the company’s ‘Next Level Farming’ approach.

The three ranges, Spica, Tauri and Polaris, come with tank volumes from 900–4,000 litres and a broad range of control options, from a basic version through to 100% Isobus. The new fertiliser spreaders meet the most stringent requirements regarding precision of application and economy.

Comfortable setting options guarantee that fertiliser is applied precisely and economically, according to Lemken UK’s general manager Paul Creasy. The Lemken fertiliser spreaders are therefore high-quality products which optimally complement the company’s existing product portfolio in tillage, sowing and crop care, he adds.

The entry level model Spica with tank volumes from 900–2,100 litres and working widths of up to 24m, makes the Spica ideal for smaller growers, while the mid-range Tauri offers a large loading volume of up to 3,000 litres. This implement delivers higher fertilising efficacy through large working widths of up to 36m. Equipment such as the weighing system, width section control and Isobus preparation make the Tauri 12 not only highly precise but also very comfortable to operate, Lemken reckons.

The range-topping Polaris machines offer working widths of up to 50m and tank volumes of up to 4,000 litres, as well as sophisticated technology such as speed control, the Epsilon spreader vane system and the GPS-supported Econov section control system.

Mr Creasy explains how the range of fertiliser spreaders and their features fits well with the company’s ‘Next Level Farming’ approach: “With long-term benefits for agriculture, which aims to improve the health and fertility of soils, promote biodiversity while restoring and maintaining ecosystems.

“The aim is to develop site-appropriate agricultural methods that aim to reduce the impact on the soil and the environment. In addition to ecological goals, Lemken also focuses on economic success. With this holistic approach, Lemken wants to make a decisive contribution to making farms fit for the future and our spreader range for accurate application is a key factor.”

Next Level Farming is based on the approaches of regenerative agriculture, which are supported by many farmers, environmentalists, and sustainability advocates worldwide. Lemken is campaigning for the term to be given a clear definition in Germany.

The focus should be on the result and not on the measures that lead to the result. Lemken is currently working intensively on the topics of resource protection, water management, processes and autonomy, digitalisation and research and consulting.
