May 2022 - SAMSON launches new injector for accurate and gentle application of slurry

SAMSON AGRO A/S, based in Viborg in Denmark, has added yet another injector to the implement range – the single disc injector SAMSON TS. SAMSON TS is designed for optimal utilisation of the slurry’s fertilization value via gentle injection in more crop types and soil conditions.

The new injector is available in two working widths, 8 and 12 metres, SAMSON TS 8 and SAMSON TS 12.

Designed for Conservation Agriculture, No Till and Strip Till cultivation principles

SAMSON TS works with the PG II slurry tanker and SlurryMaster 8000 control to apply the slurry accurately, gently and intelligently.

With a narrow injector disc that opens a groove for injecting slurry, SAMSON TS applies the nutrients exactly where the plants can best absorb them, without breaking and working up the soil as with traditional injection.

“It’s well-known now that when the plants are allocated nutrients in the root system, in the right volume and at the right time, the emission of environmentally harmful substances is minimised. Together with the desire to reduce these emissions via slurry injection, new cultivation principles such as Conservation Agriculture, No Till and Strip Till are now gaining ground. We developed SAMSON TS for use within these very principles,” says Niels Haubjerg, Product Manager for Slurry Technology at SAMSON AGRO A/S.

SAMSON TS is also fully prepared for automatic control systems with GPS and electronic application maps.

The injector is divided into 1-metre wide sections, each of which can be operated individually via the SlurryMaster 8000. Individual control with the 8 or 12 sections helps to avoid over- and under-fertilization when overlapping in wedges and headlands.

SAMSON TS uses variable dosing to accurately inject the required amounts of nutrients via an automated process in collaboration with an ISOBUS compatible GPS system based on e.g. yield maps from past years.

Both parts contribute to an increase in the yield potential because of more efficient fertilization, but also have environmental benefits by reducing local overfertilization and applying nutrients depending on the absorption potential of the soil as well as the plants.

SAMSON TS already went on sale from 1 May 2021, but an official announcement was delayed due to cancelled trade fairs, therefore the launch did not officially gather pace until now May 2022.
