LEMKEN's disc harrow can soon be combined with precision slurry spreader

From March 2022, the LEMKEN Heliodor compact disc harrow will be available with a preparation set for attaching a Vogelsang DosiMat DMX precision spreader

The resulting powerful combination of two proven implements is ideal for the precise low-loss spreading and incorporation of liquid organic fertilisers such as slurry.

LEMKEN’s product range includes tillage implements, seed drills, hoeing machines, fertiliser spreaders and smart solutions for agricultural data management. 

The Heliodor offers a sound basis for this type of application, as it is compact and low-draught and therefore only places little additional demands on the tractor’s lifting and traction powers. The DosiMat DMX is known for its very even sloping and longitudinal distribution, which is consistently maintained even at extremely low and extremely high application rates.

The way the two implements work together is very simple: Slurry is fed into the DosiMat from above, homogenised inside the device by a flow-optimised rotor equipped with cutting blades, and then pushed into the individual outlets. 

Fibre and foreign matter are shredded in the process – this enables the desired precise distribution and helps to avoid disruptive blockages. The slurry then passes via hoses to the area behind the first row of discs on the Heliodor, where it is injected into the soil and immediately incorporated by the second row of discs and the trailing roller without any delay. 

In terms of economy, the Heliodor/DosiMat duo is exactly in line with current trends; with rising prices for mineral fertilisers many farmers want to utilise the nutrients stored in their slurry. This is done through precise application and immediate incorporation while minimising nitrogen losses, making the process not only extremely economical, but also compliant with water protection requirements.
