Digital N-fertilization with sensors

Apply nitrogen fertilizer in verious proportions

agricon N-Fertilization

Increase certainty...

in making decisions:

  • transparent fertilization rules and algorithms based on agronomically tested principles
  • digital and fully automatic documentation of all N-fertilization measures
  • daily updated overview of N balance, compliance with the Fertilizer Ordinance (EU Nitrates Directive 91/676/EEC) and actual N requirement of all stands 

in usage:

  • work orders for drivers with all specific sensor settings on paper and/or digital dispatch to the terminal
  • error-free and automatic adaptation of N fertilisation to the actual N requirement of the crop
  • automatic data transmission of the sensor distribution map back to the data portal

    in public relations:

    • use of the currently highest technology level in N fertilization - corresponding proofs are thus digitally available at any time
    • image improvement through innovative sensor technology
    • digitalisation as a socially oriented solution to the so-called 'fertilizer problem'
