The RO-EDW GEOSPREAD is a weighing spreader with integrated section control system to provide optimal use of nutrients to your crops.
Switching off the sections outwards
Based on previous coverage, field borders and headlands, the automatic section control adjusts the working width and dosing system to suit overlaps and coverage using a GPS positioning system. For example, when driving in a wedge or irregular shaped field, GEOSPREAD will start to decrease the working width step by step. No need to step off the tractor to adjust the working width!
The spreader working width is divided into sections, similar to the sections of a sprayer, with a minimum section width of only 2 metres. By keeping a constant disc RPM and accurately adjusting the discharge point, GEOSPREAD allows you to switch off section by section, from one side to the other, until the last outer section in for example a wedged headland. This means the small 2 metre sections can be switched inside-out and outside-in to keep overlaps to the minimum and save fertiliser.
