ASABE to Develop Standard for Dry Fertilizer Spreaders

The American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers has begun to develop a standard for wide spread-pattern testing of dry fertilizer spreaders.

The standard will apply specifically to equipment with spread capability greater than 18.3 meters, or 60 feet. Current standards reference test procedures for smaller applicators.

Stakeholders interested in participating in the development project, designated X660, may contact Jean Walsh at
