DNMS - Dry Nutrient Management

Compost, solids and sludge application

Dry Nutrient Management System

Keeping the organic matter levels of the soil on a good level is the key towards healthy soils and high yields. Efficient compost, solids and sludge application will be one of the key success factors to ensure consistent and high yields now and in the future. With a Ploeger AT equipped with DNMS, efficient, precise and high capacity application are combined into one machine. Because the weight of the machine is not trailed, but carried by the AT, the machine has sufficient traction to work under a broad range of conditions, maximising the application window. Together with the large flotation tires and permanent all wheel drive, this ensures minimum soil damage and maximum yields.

Precise application of nutrients starts with a well designed machine, and a machine where the operator is in full control. The DNMS system is completely integrated in the AT controls, providing excellent control over the complete machine and application processes. The Ploeger AT with DNMS are equipped with a TEBBE box spreader. This proven and robust box is the ideal match thanks to its reliable components and precise application. The machine terminal can save various types of products and their specific parameters such as density and homogeneity, all with their own spreading characteristics. For an accurate application, the large spinners and beaters are hydraulically driven so that the rpm can be adjusted according to the product. In combination with the integrated loading cells on the machine and the automatically adjustable chain speed, gate opening and optional dual drive, all products are applied exactly where they need to be. Optionally, the machine can use prescription maps to apply the nutrients using the integrated precision farming systems.

Precision farming Systems

As standard, the Ploeger DNMS are equipped with a state-of-the-art electronic system which controls the application rates based on the machine speed and application width. All important parameters can be set convenient via the 12″ Pilot Screen. Thanks to the TaskControl system, all relevant job data such as applied rate, worked surface and working time are stored in the system. The machines can optionally be equipped with FleetCommand, which enable remote acces to the machine data.

Precision farming is a crucial element in both application as in the complete nutrient cycle on the farm. We therefore believe that precision farming systems should be an integral part of the machine control system. However, collaboration with other processes on the farm is as crucial as  the integration itself. Therefore our control system can connect to a broad range of precision farming systems, so that there is always a solution that fits your needs.
