The use of LESS technology is key for farmers looking to implement sustainable farming practices. Abbey applicators are a valuable tool that not only reduce environmental impact but maximize the value obtained from slurry. Abbey Machinery continues to invest in the low emission slurry spreading range, recently launching a new 12-meter band spreader to complement the existing offering.
LESS supports sustainability with precise and controlled slurry spreading, ensuring that nutrients are delivered directly to the targeted areas. Applicator technology reduces the risk of over-application, minimizing the potential for effluent and nutrient runoff. Applicators incorporate precision delivery techniques placing slurry below the canopy of the grass which significantly decreases the release of gases like ammonia into the atmosphere mitigating air pollution. Organic matter in slurry promotes the formation of stable soil aggregates and enhances soil carbon storage, which helps mitigate climate change by reducing greenhouse gas emissions. The Abbey applicator range including trailing shoe, band spreader and shallow disc injector models are designed for precise application and ease of use.
Slurry is rich in N, P & K which can be highly beneficial for crop growth and provide a significant source of nutrients in addition to sustainability benefits. When applied appropriately it can contribute to improving soil fertility, increasing organic matter content, and supporting crop yield. By accurately applying slurry using low-emission spreaders, farmers can enhance soil health, leading to improved water retention, nutrient cycling, and overall crop productivity. Appropriate application of slurry reduces the need for artificial fertilizers lowering costs for the farm while improving crop health.
Abbey technology extras including NIR sensors, ISOBUS technology and flow meter control support the farmer in analyzing nutrient components and supporting precision application for optimal results for vitality of the crop and health of the herd.
Low-emission slurry spreader applicators represent a significant advancement in sustainable farming practices. By reducing environmental impact, maximizing nutrient utilization, and enhancing soil health, these technologies enable farmers to obtain greater value from slurry while minimizing adverse effects on the environment. As the agricultural sector continues to prioritize sustainability, the adoption of low-emission slurry spreader applicators will play a crucial role in promoting a more environmentally friendly and economically viable approach to slurry management.
