If your spreader can’t change the flow rate on the go, you can use the spread by speed mode.
- Open the “Tasks”
- Select your mid speed according to your preferences. Please keep an eye on the speed range.
- Set your spreader to the mid flow rate and the mid speed shown in the screen
- Start driving: Go to the field and drive according to the recommendation of the app. Always keep the engine revs constant for an even spread pattern
Though the drive mode allows all users easy access to variable fertilization, there are technical limitations. As you must keep the engine revs constant to ensure an even spread pattern, you need to shift gears to adjust speed. Therefore, the tractor you use should have multiple gears in the speed range on the field. To avoid a drop of speed when shifting gears, it is recommended to use a tractor with a power shift, or a CVT / IVT transmission. Using tractors with a low number of gears, or where shifting requires pushing the clutch might lead to off-speed driving and unwanted spreading.
