While most farmers are likely to stick to their mounted spreaders, those with huge acreages are increasingly looking to run big trailed spreaders.

Amazone’s latest ZG-TS spreader, which got its first UK outing at Cereals, holds either 5,500 or 8,200 litres, the latter giving about 35ha between fills.
