The Calibrator Totz monitor offers fully automatic calibration, GPS section control and use of application maps. Danish company Bogballe says the Totz computer allows growers to optimise spreading of fertiliser.
Hugo Claver, Web editor for Future Farming, reports that the fully automatic quantity calibration function ensures that the desired amount of fertiliser is applied, which allows for variable rate application of fertiliser. An application map or crop sensor can be used for VRA-fertilisation.
Bogballe says its weighing system is the perfect tool for this, as it measures in kilos and translates this into kg/ha. The company says the left and right section of the spreader can operate independently and apply different amounts of fertiliser.
the Calibrator Totz incorporates an advanced monitoring system that can diagnose electronic functions of the spreader. According to Bogballe, Calibrator Totz was thoroughly tested in practice during 9 months.
