Microcast 250

The Microcast 250 has a massive 250litre hopper with 2 metering units.  It is a granular applicator for nematicide and starter fertiliser.

When it is used for nematicide it is commonly mounted on a front single bed tiller with the planter on the back of the tractor.  Cartridges are available for Nemathorin, Mocap and Vydate and calibration is straightforward.

The setup for delivering starter fertiliser is shown in the smaller picture above.  The air assist kit can be seen connecting to the large fan on the drill and helps blow the product into the venturi to be placed with the seed.

The Microcast 70 Air designed to apply Vydate on a 2 or 3 row planter.  It is fitted with a small fan to blow the product into the opener.  It has all the features of the standard gravity machine but because the product is blown the hopper can be mounted at a more convenient height for filling.

The system is easily calibrated by carrying out a dump test with the product caught in a container placed beneath the metering unit.
