The design and experiment of variable rate fertilizer applicator driven by home-made tractor were introduced in this paper. The applicator was guided by a GPS (global positioning system) system. It can apply fertilizer based on the fertilizer prescription map. The mechanism of metering system for the applicator uses a flute wheel. The amount of fertilizer was determined by the rotational speed of flute wheel. The working process and structure of applicator were also explained.
