Fertiliser, Avadex & Seed Application

Fertiliser Spreading

We can supply and apply solid, liquid and compound fertilisers upon request, including all soil testing services to enable a balanced application of fertiliser to the land to optimize crop growth. Liquid fertiliser is applied through our Househam self-propelled sprayers with bowser back up if required. Solid fertilisers are applied with our KMR M2 Twin Disc Spreader which has weigh cells and auto calibration for accurate application, which, combined with the tractors on board GPS system will enable the application of fertilisers on a variable rate basis. Our trailed Bredal K105 Spreader can be used for the application of base fertilisers as well as lime, fibrephos and other granular products. GPS guidance can be used for all of these operations. Fertiliser can also be applied using our Horstine Cascade Avadex applicator.

 

Spraying

24 metre spraying is carried out with Agrifac and Househam Marlin self-propelled crop sprayers, equipped with GPS guidance for accurate application of all herbicides, pesticides and fungicides. Paddock spraying and other small areas are completed using an ATV Quad Bike and a 3 metre mounted sprayer or hand lance, for spot treatment. All machines are fully NSTS tested and certified with trained and experienced operators who are NRoSO Registered

 

Avadex Application

For the treatment of herbicide resistant black-grass and sterile brome, FGS Agri have a choice of spreaders. We a mounted 24 metre Horstine Cascde granular applicator, specifically for the application of Avadex granules capable of applying avadex, fertliser, seeds and slug pellets. With the liquid formulation of Tri-allate being delayed, and the black-grass and sterile brome problems that are now showing in many crops, we have taken the view that we need to ring the changes and promote the application of the granular formulation of Avadex. We also have a Horstine twin air 36m trailed machine available. Both machines operate using Greenstar GPS and are operated by one of our PA4 trained operators. Both types of spreaders operate using low ground pressure tyres.
