I’ve managed to put stripes in the wheat (yet again) despite phoning Amazone for the settings. 😡
So, I’ve ordered a tray test kit. But I can’t find any info on how to adjust the veins to even up spread.
It’s thrown it too far.
Surely it can’t be a case of trial and error.

Running an Amazone ZAM if that helps.

Download the app, there is a spreader optimisation page on there and you put your tray test results in and it will advise where to move your vanes

I’ve got the app. But origin urea doesn’t seem to be listed.
But don’t you need the fancy/expensive matts to use that part of the app ?

I was only reading on here the other day where someone had been charged £350 (I think) for one product they then wanted extra to do another test. 😳😳

Looking at 3 different products a year through fert spreader. It’d soon get expensive.

Buy a few trays, I can then check the slug pelleter too.

Origin don’t make urea, it comes in on a great big boat and they put it in a bag with their name on it. What you need to do is choose 1 of the urea’s on the app that is most similar to what you’ve got, granular/prill, Russian/Egyptian. That would give you a start point. Tray test and put in the volume/weight (it doesn’t matter which) of fert in each tray, that will give the app figures so it can work out the COV and will then suggest adjustments to the vanes

I had a quick play with the app.
That makes much more sense. Thank you.

I've just got rid of my amazone ZAM for the very reason mentioned about.
No matter how I tried to set it up it would always throw too much to the over lap or if you corrected that then it would over spread at the 6M mark.
This was with origin urea and origin AN.
I spoke to amazone about it several times and each time they suggested I try different things but nothing worked.
I also contacted origin to get the manufacturer of there products as I could be sure I was getting the right settings from amazone.

Bogballe now and so far so good!!!🤞

That's a good point. To be far they've always told me something but weather it's correct I'm not so sure.
This year I have origin AN origin have told me it's eurochem granular 33.5 but the bags are all labeled as prilled 34.5 so Im sure what it is but it's spreading ok🤞

Sorry , but if you want to sprea Urea accurately their is only one way to go.
liquid! No offence , but Urea sold here is from any factory in. The world and can be anything from nice graunles to dust. At this price I would not dream of chancing a spreader

A man has pleaded guilty at Newtownards Magistrates’ Court to waste offences relating to a bonfire next to the electrical sub-station on the Circular Road in Newtownards, Co. Down.

Gareth Gill (51) of Abbot’s Walk, Newtownards pleaded guilty to two charges under the Waste and Contaminated Land (Northern Ireland) Order 1997, for which he was fined £150 each and ordered to pay a £15 offender’s levy

On June 25, 2018, PSNI officers went to Gill’s yard, where they found a large amount of waste consisting of scrap wood, pallets, carpet and underlay.
