From March 2022, Lemken will make its Heliodor compact disc harrow available with a preparation kit for attaching a Vogelsang DosiMat DMX precision slurry applicator. The resulting combination of two proven implements is ideal for the precise low-loss spreading and incorporation of liquid manure.
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 reliably shredded in the process. This is said to enable 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, incorporated by the second row of discs and consolidated by the following roller.
Lemken states that this combination can help to minimise nitrogen losses, making the process economical and compliant with water protection requirements.
