Cultivator and fertilizer applicator Kultis is especially suitable for cultivation and aeration of the spaces between the vegetation rows, application of liquid fertilizer into the plant root zone, destruction of grown weeds between the plant rows and disruption of the soil crust. Cultivator Kultis enables adjustment of the precise dose of 60-160 l/ha and possibility of application up to the height of the vegetation of 40-50 cm.
Cultivator and fertilizer applicator Kultis is designed for cultivation and aeration of the spaces between the vegetation rows and simultaneously to application of liquid fertilizer into the plant root zone.
The cultivator is structurally solved as half-carried with two operable support wheels. The working members are arrow shares attached to the shanks that are fixed to the frame through a parallel link hitch with a spring overload protection. Each ploughshare is guided by a support wheel and equipped with adjustable coulters on the sides for better soil separation and aeration. The cultivator is equipped with a central liquid fertilizer tank, pump, filtration, filling and distributions that deliver the fertilizer to the plant roots.
The weeding unit is sufficiently dimensioned even for heavy and rocky soils. The disk coulters on the sides of the ploughshare prevent plant damage and promote better soil separation and aeration in heavy soils without damaging the maize rows. The parallel link hitch with a support wheel and a protection spring allow tracing the surface of the land along the entire machine span.
The frame of the cultivator with additional fertilization is made from a robust section and fitted with hydraulically controlled elements for easy folding from the working to the transport position. The cultivator arms are fitted with support wheels. The working members are fixed to the frame using clamps that allow smooth transition from the inter-row distance of 70 cm to 75 cm.
The structure of Kultis cultivator allows high travelling speeds within the range from 8 to 12 km an hour with emphasis on the proper functioning of the machine. A tractor with the capacity of 75 hp is sufficient as a towing vehicle.
Some types of soil are highly prone to the formation of soil crust in the area of maize and sunflower. The disruption of the impermeable soil layer substantially improves the water regime by the fact that such processed soil better absorbs moisture. Also, soil aeration has a positive effect on the development of plants. In addition, Kultis cultivator eliminates any potential occurrence of weeds between the rows.
Growing maize in the system of soil-protection technologies brings along a greater volume of plant residues that remain on the field surface. The working members and the overall passability of the cultivator with additional fertilization are designed so that the machine can work with the plant residues from the previous harvest without any limitation.
The utilization of applied nitrogen in standard technologies is from 50 to 60%. Normally applied nutrition of maize and sunflower plants increases costs and is not efficient.
Advantages of use of Kultis cultivator:
The robust frame guarantees a long service life of the cultivator even in the most difficult conditions.
Due to minimum of adjusting and lubricating points the operation and subsequent maintenance are very easy steps that anybody can perform.
