LAMMA 10: BFS makes true variable-rate liquid fertiliser application a reality

With its new AutoStreamer applicator, Billericay Farm Services has automated rate changes by replacing fixed-size flow restrictors with a pressure-sensitive variable-flow valve using a simple rubber sleeve inside the inlet.

The valve will only open beyond 1bar operating pressure and flow rate changes in line with pressure increases. That means operators simply enter a new application rate on the sprayer control system to change from one rate to another when moving from one crop to another.

Individual port feeds eliminate the risk of uneven flow from the bar when working across a slope and reduce the weight of the bar by half compared with the current design.

Cost is £28.50 for each applicator.
