Hi V&Bers,

I am trying to spread granular soil amendments using my subcompact
tractor's PTO for the very first time. From what I've heard, cone spreaders
don't adjust very well for direction and distance.

 What can I rent, borrow or buy that will accurately toss the good stuff at
just one row of berry bushes at a time?

Pendulum spreader can do this. Kubota or Vicon

I purchased a 3point hitch cone spreader (I can’t remember the brand name)
that has two controllable outlet doors that allow granular material to be
dropped on either side of the spinner and therefore more concentrated
applications on the preferred side. It has a poly cone, so is less prone to
corrosion. It is very light and easy to hitch/unhitch from the tractors we
use it on. The only drawback I’ve found is the decal and owners manual have
units of measurement that do not convert well to pounds and/or acres. I
purchased it at United Ag and Turf in South Royalton and their phone number
is 802-763-8082 of you’d like to call them for more information.

Do you have any opportunity to use a water soluble product and apply them
through a sprayer? That would be more accurate and precisely target the
desired soil area. We have also had very good results applying fertilizer
through our drip irrigation system too.

Good luck!

If you haven’t already, look into Vicon. They have many different spout
options, at least a couple of which throw to only one side.

Hi Gino,

I use a cone spreader and it does a good job.  We have a Kabota 2030 so not
a sub compact but still a relatively small tractor.  It takes some
finessing at first with how much you open the chute, speed of tractor, etc
but after a while it works out.  I can let you know when I’m spreading
stuff if you want to see it firsthand.  Haven’t gotten my stuff yet though
so it’ll be a couple weeks although I wish I had it already.  Hard to get
deliveries to this area - they always wait for another order nearby to
combine it with.
