Agrometer SRS 1200 umbilical system

Rocking and reeling - Agrometer’s umbilical gear

Danish firm Agrometer’s umbilical gear is a bit different to the more familiar kits from British and Irish manufacturers. For starters they don’t drag the hose along the field but unroll it and then reel it back up as the tractor progresses across the field

In the UK and Ireland we are fairly accustomed to umbilical slurry systems, with most farms not far away from a contractor (or several) offering the service. Yet this application technique is still relatively new to German farmers. One of the systems on their doorstep comes from Danish neighbour Agrometer.
