Better crop establishment, improved plant nutrition, targeted placement and reduced inputs are all factors that are driving farmers back to combination seed and fertiliser drilling.
Claydon drills are the ideal machines to take advantage of targeted fertiliser placement within the seeding and/or rooting zone ensuring that fertiliser is exactly where the plant needs it.
This avoids fertiliser being wasted on the 50% of ground that is not disturbed, ensuring that nutrients are available to the young seedling and not to weeds or volunteers, providing better utilisation and a potential fertiliser cost saving.
The Claydon team have developed technology which allows placement of granular, liquid, and/or micro-granular fertiliser directly to the seeded strip and/or rooting zones.
All Claydon fertiliser options are available on new drills but can also be retro-fitted to existing Hybrid drills.
