Row injection

Application between rows improves the uptake of nutrients, as the slurry better remains in the root area of the plant. As a result, the young plants can absorb the nutrients more quickly. To realise optimal yields under strict application standards, it is essential for slurry to be applied in places where the plant needs the nutrition. That is to say, directly next to or within the row, close to the plant roots. The roots then have immediate access to the necessary nutrients. Bear in mind the difference between injectors on cultivated fields and injectors on fields containing crops.

Injecting the slurry into the root area gives a better nutritional effect, and an additional fertiliser application is unnecessary or can be limited.

Slurry injection between rows

Organic fertilizer application between rows spares the soil and keeps the functional capillary system intact. The natural carrying capacity of the soil is also preserved as much as possible. In addition, the straw or mulch layer on the uncultivated field provides good protection against erosion. Strip-till injection has a positive effect on the water-draining capacity of the soil thanks to the better retention of the soil structure.


Strip-till is a method that has been very popular in the USA for many years. Fertilisation and tillage only take place between rows, with simultaneous incorporation of the slurry. This also creates the characteristic image of rows in the field.

Advantages of slurry injection between rows

Advantages of application between rows are:

Application between rows leads to a higher degree of utilisation, as the slurry is better retained in the root area of the plant. As a result, the young plants can easier absorb the nutrients.
