Fertilizer spreader

Tough field and market conditions

As with seeding planters, seeding fertilizers may sit idle for months before being put into intense service for days on end. Bearings and other key components face a range of conditions and possible contaminants, including the fertilizers. All of it can lead to bearing failures and costly, unplanned downtime.

To help ensure the highest crop yields, seeding planters must also perform very precisely. Computer-assisted actuation systems can enable such precision, but these components need also resist harsh field conditions. To succeed in the marketplace, such “smart” farming solutions have to be affordable as well.
