IntelliSpread® - transforming topdressing

Topdressing for hill country farms used to mainly be about blanket rates when it came to the soil fertility needs across the entire farm. Until now.

What can IntelliSpread do for me?

IntelliSpread is about ensuring  the right amount of the right fertiliser is placed where it’s needed instead of where it’s not.

The standard IntelliSpread system activates the automated doors so they are closed over areas where aerial spreading would be wasteful or environmentally unacceptable.

The advanced IntelliSpread system varies the rate of fertiliser applied through computer-controlled hopper doors that are working to a map which has been wirelessly uploaded to the plane.

Pioneering to Precision

This Research Programme is about bringing more precision to aerial spreading. The detailed nutrient needs of the farm are identified remotely and the right amount of fertiliser applied as needed for maximum pasture and stock growth. The initiative will underpin growth of NZ red meat and high value wool exports. Ravensdown has partnered with the Government through MPI’s Primary Growth Partnership.
