In agriculture and gardening both manual and mechanical tools are used. These can be used for various cultivation practices, including those of sowing and fertilizing. In turn, the distribution of seeds and fertilizer can take place either manually or with electric or motor vehicles. In this section we will talk about fertilizer spreaders, tools widely used in large-scale soil fertilization. The fertilizer spreaders avoid the effort of having to fertilize large areas of cultivable land by hand and also guarantee precise and effective spreading. On the market there are many fertilizer spreaders, from the smallest to the largest. The various models will be carefully examined in the articles of our section. The fertilizer spreaders are machines that automatically spread the fertilizer on the ground. They are mainly used for the distribution of powder or granular fertilizer and on large surfaces. Fertilizer spreaders can be both small and large. The small ones generally have the form of a funnel or wheelbarrow and are manually operated. They are in fact placed on a trolley with two wheels to be towed manually. The larger ones have instead a mechanized and even electronic functioning. The mechanical fertilizer spreaders are generally mounted on the tractor and move forward thanks to the vehicle's drive. The mechanical fertilizer spreaders can have centrifugal or pneumatic distribution. In the first case the spreading takes place thanks to the disks that, turning, spread the fertilizer in a circular sense. The spreading starts from the center and widens on the sides thanks to special fins. The pneumatic fertilizer spreaders, on the other hand, spread the fertilizer from a hopper that is driven by an air flow, which is in turn activated by a fan connected to the tractor socket. The mechanical fertilizer spreaders also allow you to program the spreading width. In fact, there are machines that offer working widths from ten to twenty-four meters and others that allow you to work from twelve to fifty meters. The centrifugal fertilizer spreaders that work between twelve and forty-two meters are suitable for any type of fertilizer. Some of these machines are also prepared to spread the seeds, but this function must be provided by the manufacturer. We do not recommend using the fertilizer spreader without the manufacturer's indication. Some growers also use pneumatic fertilizer spreaders to sow seeds. It seems, in fact, always according to the opinions of the users, that the pneumatic fertilizer spreaders have a more precise spreading capacity and therefore are also more suitable for spreading the seeds. When working on large surfaces, the fertilizer spreaders must be highly powerful, fast and effective. The effectiveness of these machines is guaranteed by some computerized functions that must however always be controlled and set by man. Before spreading the fertilizer, the fertilizer spreader can be programmed with a special digital map that shows the areas to be fertilized little, those to fertilize a lot and those not to fertilize at all. The map is provided by a satellite device that photographs the area you need to work on. Then, by entering the menu on the same map, the grower will identify the areas that need more or less fertilizer. The digital device also allows you to enter some data relating to the composition of the soil and the level of humidity and temperature. The electronic processing of these data makes it possible to establish the exact quantity of fertilizer to be distributed. Once the programming phase is finished, the digital fertilizer spreader, operated by the tractor, will do everything by itself, releasing, in each duly mapped portion of the land, only the quantity of fertilizer required. From this description it is clear that modern fertilizer spreaders are now real precision machines that guarantee high efficiency and no waste. The costs of the fertilizer spreaders vary according to the size and operation of the equipment. The funnel or wheelbarrow manual fertilizer spreaders cost from one hundred to two hundred euros. The used models can also be bought for thirty euros. Mechanical and tractor models are more expensive, the costs of which can even exceed one thousand euros. If you do not have large plots of land, you should choose the models with manual traction. If you prefer mechanical ones, you can bet on the used fertilizer spreaders, which generally always cost half as much as new models. In our section we will also explore other aspects related to the use of fertilizer spreaders. But I am alone: ​​we will also talk about the models currently available, their maintenance, their functionality and other important technical and non-technical features. We therefore invite you to consult the contents of our section so as not to miss any news concerning these very useful tools for agriculture and gardening.

    I mean you are not right. I can defend my position. Write to me in PM, we'll talk.
