Cultivator and fertilizer applicator Fertis is especially suitable for deep row cultivation and aeration of soils – strip till technology up to the depth of 35 cm. It also ensures targeted application of reserve fertilization in two depths (to the seeds and to the roots) – due to which it is possible to decrease the applied amount of fertilizers while maintaining the required yields. The machine enables creation of distinctive ridges on the soil surface to maintain winter humidity, anti-erosion measure, basic soil preparation, creation of ridges in autumn (heavy and medium soils) and light soils in spring, ridge soil processing and fertilization under maize.

The first row cultivates the soil in the axis of the future root zone. The fertilizer is placed behind the chisels. The fertilizer is distributed into the entire processing depth and can be used by plants even from early phases of development. The second chisel row cultivates the strip between future plants and creates the final ridge. Cultivation and proper fertilization increase the stability of yields, particularly during dry or rainy years.
Ridge soil processing under maizeThe ridge remains in a rough structure after the soil processing and fertilization in order to accept precipitation well during winter. The rough structure falls apart by the effects of frost and humidity. In spring the soil warms up soon and is prepared for seeding earlier than when common technology is used.
Due to minimum of adjusting and lubricating points the operation and subsequent maintenance are very easy steps that anybody can perform.
The advantage of this machine is its multipurposeness and adjustability bringing high variability of work.
Short robust frame
Fertilizer feeder = two depths of dose
Special production technology of eXtra STEEL line enables using very strong treated materials not only for working members of a machine but also for extremely loaded parts of main frames and adjusting mechanisms. The frames of machines on very exposed places are formed by sections of high strength steel having multiple strengths in comparison to common structural material of good quality. Thanks to eXtra STEEL line technology the machines have smaller weight and much higher service life in the most demanding operation conditions.
More information about the technology of eXtra STEEL line production can be found at the information website.
