Fertilizer is often applied to fields using mechanical spreaders to ensure an even distribution of the required nutrients. Ineffective spreading leads to uneven fertilizer application, resulting in strips of nutrient-deficient crops and a subsequent loss of farmer income.
POLY4 granules were tested using spreading machinery  set to a spreading width of 24m and 36m, a typical distance for fertilizer application. Figure 6 shows the results of the spreader testing to be within the 20% tolerance limits, outside which striping manifests within a crop. POLY4’s quality spread pattern reduces the risk of expensive corrective action.
