Salford Launches Planter Mounted, Granular, On-Board Fertilizer Applicator
 
Salford Group is releasing the Ferti-GO 4S - a planter mounted, granular, on-board fertilizer applicator. The Ferti-GO 4S is available for order from Salford's Valmar and Salford dealers.
 
The Ferti-GO 4S features a single product hopper, available for mounting on many planter models, with variable rate metering and 4 section control. The hopper has a standard capacity of 4 Tons, with the ability to reach a capacity of 6 Tons with optional hopper extensions.
 
"The metering system of the Ferti-GO 4S, which is currently featured on the ST Series and other Salford's Valmar equipment, has been well liked by our customers. With this metering system, the Ferti-GO 4S allows producers to feed fertilizer to their openers or application coulters accurately at rates low enough to apply in-row pop-up fertilizer. With flexible roller options and a range of application rate abilities, the Ferti-GO 4S can also accurately meter banded starter fertilizer," said Salford's Senior Product Manager, Brad Baker. 
 
The metering system of the Ferti-GO 4S has been tried and tested across the Salford-Valmar product line, including in the ST Series. This metering system, paired with the Venturi Air Manifold System, is known for its accuracy, ease-of-use, simple cleaning, and a range of application rate abilities.
 
"The name Ferti-GO 4S represents the product's abilities - Ferti, representing fertilizer, G, representing granular, O, representing on-board, and 4S, representing its 4 sections," said Salford's Marketing Manager, Anson Boak. "Though our current ST Series already offers producers a variety of granular fertilizer application options, we wanted to add to our lineup a unit with the ability to apply either in-row pop-up or banded starter fertilizer - while also offering the ease of maneuverability that comes with a planter mounted unit. As a company, we pride ourselves in creating versatile solutions to help producers get the most out of their equipment. With its established and accurate metering system, paired with its ease-of-use and customized mounting, the Ferti-GO 4S is a great option for producers looking for a simple but effective solution."
 
Mounting legs are available for common late model planters that are designed to carry on-board nutrient systems. By mounting directly on the planter, the Ferti-GO 4S saves producers from difficulties with road transport and maneuverability in field .
