Testing Agricultural Machinery

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.

Testing agricultural machinery


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.
