The Agricultural Engineering group evaluates the performance of a diverse range of agricultural machinery. Specific tests can be performed upon the customers’ request. Standard tests are available for fertiliser spreaders and potato harvesters.
Adjustment of fertiliser spreaders involves a calibration test and a transverse distribution measurement. After the spreader is adjusted, the farmer is assured that it is working properly and that the fertiliser will be evenly distributed across the field with a high quality spread pattern. The tests are performed onsite and at ILVO under field conditions.
