Samson Agro launches new injector for placing slurry in row crops

SAMSON AGRO A/S is adding a completely new type of injector to its implement range for the coming season the “SAMSON Strip-Till”, designed for the easy and efficient placing of slurry in row crops.

The new SAMSON Strip-Till now makes it possible not only to reduce the amount of mineral starter fertilizer, but also to have an efficient tool that complies with new phosphorus rules and maintains a high yield.

It consists of several operations in one injector, which makes the task of placing the slurry extremely precise. Strip-Till is equipped with an integrated disc on a “soil to soil” front drum, cleaning wheel and a unique parabolic disc stand, which lifts up the soil and creates a V-shaped opening in the soil where the specially developed slurry nozzles place the slurry in two lines at a depth of 20-30 cm. The disc then closes the soil surface again.

The precise placing of slurry makes a perfect seed bed for e.g. corn with less weeds.

“With the new SAMSON Strip-Till, we can now offer professional users an injector that ensures high capacity while maintaining high yields without mineral starter fertilizer”, says Niels Haubjerg, Product Manager for Slurry Technology at SAMSON AGRO.

New phosphorus rules have led to a growing interest in being able to reduce the amount of mineral starter fertilizers for corn, for example.

SAMSON Strip-Till can be used in varying ground conditions e.g. ploughed soil, stubble field. The placing of slurry is always precise and it has several different setting options. The parallelogram hitch ensures precise depth control for each row, among others. This means the slurry is always placed at the preset height, the specially developed slurry nozzles can be adjusted easily and the placing of slurry lines can be adapted.

The new Strip-Till will be available from SAMSON Dealers in the autumn.
