The folks at John Deere have recently introduced the 2510H High-Speed Applicator with Dry Nutrient Attachment to increase nutrient placement accuracy and reduce trips across the field. At last week’s Farm Progress Show, Brad Pasvogel, tillage and nutrient management product engineer for John Deere, said with this new machine they have the ability to apply anhydrous ammonia and dry nutrients in one pass.
“Right now in our industry there is a lot of discussion around nutrient reduction strategy. With issues such as hypoxia in Lake Erie and with point source pollution in Des Moines, Iowa. This is a resource to help our customers manage their nutrients as responsible as they can and help their plants efficiently uptake the nutrients they need to reach their maximum yield potential while being the best stewards to the environment by using sub-surface application.
John Deere has a limited number of these units available for this fall and full production will begin in the spring. Brad said to contact your local dealer to learn more about how to be the new owner of the 2510H High-Speed Applicator with Dry Nutrient Attachment.
