It’s critical for the liquid application to be very accurate to make the numbers work. With this system, each seed gets just the right amount, so there’s no wastage and it’s applied right at the seed source.
This is just another phase in the journey of a company with exceptional products.
We’re finding the plants are healthier and booming out of the ground because, with liquid delivery, all the fertiliser, fungicide and trace elements we are applying are available to the crop. We haven’t had any hiccups with the Liquid Systems gear and Peter Burgess’s back up and support has been brilliant.
‘’I apply inoculant using the Liquid System at planting and not only am I coating the seed but I’m inoculating my ground as well. This gives the seed the most perfect little world to germinate in and it works remarkably well. I can’t describe how happy I am about that part of the system – it just works so well.’’
‘’I’m not aware of any other system in Australia that can do it as accurately.’’
We got two liquid fertiliser systems on it so we can put the liquid UAN (urea & ammonium nitrate) down in front on rows away from the corn, he said. We put it down away from the seed. That lets you put higher rates of fertiliser down all in the one go and not burn the seed. We can also put down the Starter right at the seed to kick the seed along before it comes up. It is all on one monitor in the cab so the whole operation is pretty simple. All the liquid control system is on the one screen.
The system was beautifully presented, very easy to install & worked brilliantly.
We have had excellent luck with your system through Spring 2014 planting and will begin Fall 2014 planting in the coming weeks.
“We’ve had some pretty low rainfall years, and we can justify the system as we’ve had some pretty good crops in those years – it all comes back to the technology and the liquid system we’re using.”
“I’m rapt with this set up — I said to someone the other day I can’t wait for seeding time next year as this system is so good to use.” “We have soil that’s low in trace elements and the plant is taking up all the nutrients we are putting out.” He said. “We have had to change the way we farm but we are heading down the right track without a doubt.”
“I’m very happy with the performance of our a-i and the support provided by Liquid Systems (SA). I’m particularly impressed with the quality of their products.”
“I needed to have a constant rate of crop protectant of fungicide and zinc products,
along with handling and safety issues, the Liquid Systems unit proved to be very
reliable, very easy to use and calibrate and paid for itself in the first season by not having to apply any post cropping applications of crop care products.”
“I used the dual pump system this year with very pleasing results. I put liquid nitrogen and some phosphate over 4000Ha and found this system very accurate, reliable and able to stand up to all I asked of it.”
“Liquid Systems has made an enormous contribution to the development of the fluid fertiliser industry in Australia and continues to do so.”
This season we purchased a VRS system for our small plot seeder. After a few modifications (we needed to run the system off a hydropak motor as our seeder is a ute trailed machone) everything went ultra smooth. The team at LQS SA were very helpful in getting us up and running and in helping us calibrate the machine. We used a range of line meters with a number of different products, from UAN, APP, liquid dolomite and limes and a huge range of trace elements, ranging from 30-60L/ha. We found the 60L tank very useful as when banding UAN @ 50L over 250 plots we needed some volume. Also we found the minimum batch usually would be around 6-10L as the lines generally hold a minimum of 3L. All in all I couldn’t recommend a better trial system or overall liquid system (I also run a liquid Systems kit on our primaries bar on the family farm). Thanks again Peter and the team
Liquid Systems equipment was Trimble-ready, allowing me to plug it straight in and operate off the one screen. The metering gives accuracy, which saves money. You’re saving money all the time, which means you get back the cost of the system tenfold.
The level of accuracy and consistency that the Liquid Systems equipment provides also means you’re not wasting product. So, for budgeting it’s very good and also for consistency of application right across the paddock.
We’re using 30% less nitrogen because it’s where it needs to be and is more available to the seed. We used to broad spray 45L/ha in front of our seeders and now we inject 30L/ha on average with variable rate technology in furrow.
More inputs at seeding for less cost, through a Liquid System, means more dollars back in my pocket.
Our country is stony, so we have to slow down when seeding, with Liquid Systems, you can still maintain a continuous stream & that’s an important part of achieving a positive field response. It changed the profitability of our farm dramatically.
The modular design from Liquid Systems also makes it very easy to integrate with any machine. Liquid is easily and uniformly delivered to multiple points in the profile. It also gives us full control with the flow rates, so we can directly control how much is applied per hectare.
The Liquid Systems equipment has perfect rate control. I know that if I put 500 litres in my tank, it will do 8 hectares on the dot virtually every tank. No matter what speed I do, it’s accurate.
