Farmers asked for a twin-hopper spreader, and Salford BBI delivered with MagnaSpread 2, a field general built for producer-level acreage. In a single pass, MagnaSpread 2 delivers multiple nutrient applications that normally require multiple laps around the field for a single-hopper spreader.
The results—farmers using MagnaSpread area saving two to four days of application time per 1,000 acres fertilized, and hundreds of gallons of fuel saved per season. MagnaSpread 2 is a smart investment with big returns for today’s most sophisticated operations.
More time for other tasks and more money in your pocket means taking your operation to next-level success with MagnaSpread 2.
Salford's BBI MagnaSpread2 and MagnaSpread3 ideally suiting for applying cover crop seed and fertilizer in one pass. The individual hoppers allow the seed to be stored separately from the fertilizer and they can be metered into one blend in the field. The MagnaSpread2 and MagnaSpread3 are able to accurately apply lower rates of cover crop seed by mixing the cover crop with fertilizer into a high rate blend and applying them in the same pass. In areas with a warm fall with suitable moisture a fall applied cover crop will establish itself quickly and begin to fix the applied fertilizer almost immediately. For best seeding results a light tillage pass with equipment such as the Salford I-Series will help to establish the cover crop and promote rapid germination by improving seed to soil contact.
