Overview


With biological farming practices becoming more common, not only in South Africa but throughout the world, new methods of applying organic materials have to be found. Conventional broadcasting methods of organic materials over the surface of lands have their disadvantages. For instance, larger volumes of organic materials are required to compensate for the various nutrients that are lost to environmental elements, such as heat and exposure to sunlight. Fungi and bacteria are also destroyed when exposed to these elements. Modern practices encourage the application of organic materials below the surface. The advantage of this method is not only that smaller quantities are required, but that they are more accessible to the roots while nutrients, fungi and bacteria are held in a stable environment, thus increasing humus and nutrient content, while also improving the structure of the soil. Radium, in conjunction with Martiens Prinsloo and many other farmers and individuals involved in biological farming practices, has developed a machine that is not only capable of effectively ripping the soil to a depth of 450 mm in the respective root zones, but it is also capable of applying organic and various other materials to any other required depth up to 450 mm. Radium succeeded in doing this by combining two well-proven implements, namely the heavy-duty chisel plough and the Transpread spreader. Dramatic changes were brought about to the first prototypes, offering the farmer a more compact, versatile and manoeuvrable machine. It has excellent practical features, such as loading accessibility, easy flow of organic materials from the bins into the soil, and the ability to work through debris on the surface. Therefore, Radium's modern on-row applicators offer the farmer an economic product to facilitate 21st century biological farming practices.
