For High Speed Fertiliser Spreading
Vicon RO-XXL GEOSPREAD is perfect for high speed spreading under all circumstances, with a working width of 24 - 45 metres and hopper capacity from 1875 to 3900 litres. The high speed RotaFlow system with 8 capacity vanes on each disc creates perfect overlap during spreading, no matter how fast you are driving. Step-less adjustments of the spreading patterns are possible with individual section control of 1 metre. The RO-XXL GEOSPREAD disc spreader comes with a maximum of 24 sections when using the GEOSPREAD system. With the combination of speed, optimised spreading and better yields, the total saving from the GEOSPREAD system can be up to 15%.
As weather and field conditions are changing continuously, combining the RO-XXL GEOSPREAD with IsoMatch GEOCONTROL allows you to take full advantage of your resources and maximise your efficiency. GEOPOINT enables better control of your fertiliser spreading pattern as it automatically detects when it is in a covered area, therefore preventing over and under dosing especially on headlands.

When running IsoMatch GEOCONTROL in addition to GEOSPREAD you can set the RO-M/RO-EDW/RO-XXL GEOSPREAD more accurately. The working width will be automatically adjusted to suit the overlap 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. GEOSPREAD is using the section control function of the IsoMatch GEOCONTROL software which is in the IsoMatch Tellus PRO or IsoMatch Tellus GO+ terminal. The spreader working width is divided into a minimum of 1 metre sections (max. 45 sections on RO-XXL GEOSPREAD, max. 54 sections on RO-EDW GEOSPREAD and max. 33 sections on RO-M GEOSPREAD). Not only the spreading width is adjusted, the application rate (kg/min) is also adjusted automatically to match the revised spreading width. This unique combination of working width and application rate adjustment makes the GEOSPREAD system extremely accurate, with minimum influence on the spread pattern coefficient of variation.
With the AutosetApp you have always the most up to date settings for your weighing spreader available. The AutosetApp is an App (software application) available on the IsoMatch Tellus PRO or IsoMatch Tellus GO+ terminal. The AutosetApp is standard integrated into the IsoMatch GEOCONTROL software. This App connects the terminal directly with the GEOSPREAD weighing spreader and will automatically adjust the spreader according to the settings entered into the App. The AutosetApp will also work in combination with the RO-M EW and RO-EDW, with the exception being for those spreaders the discharge point (letter setting) still needs to be adjusted manually on the spreader itself.
The Vicon fertiliser spreader database with the most up to date spreading charts is always available online. The AutosetApp can connect to the fertiliser spreading database in two different ways. You can connect it to the online database via the IsoMatch Wireless WIFI USB adapter or download the most actual database from the website www.viconspreadingcharts.com on an USB stick and upload the database directly into the IsoMatch Tellus PRO or IsoMatch Tellus GO+ terminal.
With the High speed RotaFlow system, fertiliser is gently brought up to speed in the dosing cup, before it is released on the disc. This system is unique compared to most other spreading systems that have the fertiliser falling on the disc. Therefore the high speed RotaFlow system has some important advantages:
For even more precision
MULTIRATE (Variable Rate Application) applies multiple rates within a working width.
In order to spread the right amount of fertiliser at a specific place in a field there is a need to have a different rate within the working width. Depending on the field variation and the size of the grid of the variable application map, input of 2, 4, 6 or 8 rate sections can be used. This means a more accurate application of nutrients to have a better nutrient efficiency, better yield and reduce costs.
With a Vicon GEOSPREAD spreader you invest in 100% ISOBUS compatibility for easy plug and play with the IsoMatch Tellus PRO or any other AEF certified terminal. In just some steps with this combination you are ready to use MULTIRATE. You have to convert a satellite or soil map into an ISO-XML file. Download the Variable Rate Map into the terminal and you are ready to spread with MULTIRATE with 2 up to 8 rates.
