Slurry system for multi-cut silage

Tramspread reckons to have developed a method of accurately applying large quantities of slurry to grassland quickly without the need to constantly refill a tanker.

Using a Joskin trailing shoe and disc injector coupled to a Tramspread umbilical kit, the technique is available in widths from 3.0m to 7.7m and the 28 coulters are spaced at 21.5cm intervals.

The Suffolk-based company reckons that the application system, which can be fed by hose reelers of up to 2,400m, is well suited to umbilical use because it easily copes with the supply from a modern slurry pump.

“It is ideal for farmers looking to maximise the potential of their silage by opting for a multi-cut approach,” said Tramspread director Edwin Baker. “It places the slurry where it is needed, below the crop canopy, so the chance of scorch and odour emission is low whilst nutrient uptake is much higher.”
