The S&K Nitro Bar Applicator has been designed to be used with a variety of implements in the establishment of crops.
It has been proven that the close positioning of fertiliser in relation to the crop roots can have a major effect on the nutrient use efficiency of the fertiliser. Placement with solution fertilisers offers significant advantages over solid placement, namely precision positioning is guaranteed, and the nutrients are dissolved, in turn offering a faster crop response. Our market leading product has been developed to ensure ease of use for the operator whilst delivering great results.
The key benefits of this practice are
Reduced fertilizer rates as fertilizer is placed in narrow bands precisely where the plant is growing
Helps compliance with NVZ regulations
Avoids feeding weed populations between plant rows
Increased efficiency as it combines two operations in one saving time and fuel

what our customers say
“We have regularly used S&K Sprayer Services and found them to be very reliable and efficient in all they have done for us. In addition to the normal sprayer repairs and servicing they have made two precision fertiliser applicators for our subsoilers, which have worked very effectively. We have always been very satisfied with their services and would hesitate to recommend them to other people.”
