MODERN farming businesses face ever increasing nutritional demands, not only for synthetic fertiliser inputs but also soil amendment products.
Combined with increasing scale and diminishing labour reserves, applying these inputs is a constant logistical challenge.
Built in Denmark for more than 50 years, Bredal machines are long proven to be capable of high capacity, accurate distribution of both processed and unprocessed material.
Based around a simple, precise and reliable machine, Bredal have models ranging from ground drive machines all the way up to the latest in section control and ultra-wide application systems.
Base machines are capable of urea fertiliser spreading of widths up to 38 metres and lime products to 19m.
XE machines designed for much wider widths can apply fertiliser to 48m and lime to 24m while also offering section control to reduce over application.
In the same way section control has become industry standard with spray application equipment Bredal can offer the same technology for fertiliser application.
For the modern farming company any saving on farm inputs is becoming harder to come by, section-controlled machines from Bredal can apply both processed and unprocessed products such as urea or lime and offer significant savings.
Trials conducted over 10,000 hectares of spread tests have shown a consistent result of 1.25 per cent overlap on GPS field boundary, saving on average 10pc of the fertiliser input.
For irregular shaped fields and fields with included obstacles the savings will be much greater.
As a multi-spreader design, these machines are capable of high capacity product application of both processed and unprocessed material.
Utilising a reverse spinner direction, along with simple drop point control systems, ensures the highest spread pattern accuracy and consistency across multiple products.
It is the consistency of spread across multiple rates and groundspeed fluctuation that sets Bredal apart, no changes to application settings are required from 30 to 400 kilograms a minute for fertiliser and 500 to 2500kg/min for lime or gypsum.
