A methodology for quantifying the capabilities of site-specific fertilizer applicators

, : A methodology for quantifying the capabilities of site-specific fertilizer applicators. Paper American Society of Agricultural Engineers ( 971042): 30 pp.

This paper proposes a general procedure to measure the effectiveness of a dry product applicator applied as a component of a site specific management system. Systems that utilize multiple products applied simultaneously across the field may be assessed by the methods outlined in the document. This test methodology is intended to be rigorous enough to allow uniform assessment of machine performance capabilities, allowing direct comparison of similar machinery.
