Renegade Anhydrous Ammonia Applicator Unverferth Fertilizer Equipment

Anhydrous ammonia (NH3) application can provide many benefits to farming operations.  The high concentration of 82% nitrogen equates to more valuable nutrients for the plant and since NH3 can bond to moisture in the soil, it can be available for a longer period of time.  With this in mind, you can spread out your work load and apply anhydrous ammonia in the fall after harvest or in the spring before planting. The Unverferth Renegade applicator is made for farming operations that want to take control of their nutrient application program and apply the right product, at the right rate and at the right time.  Toolbar widths range from 62.5' down to 27.5' and the heavy-duty design and standard wing flex allow you to quickly tackle your acres and maintain consistent depth.  The Renegade’s NH3 injection row unit features a lead coulter with 1,500 lbs. of down pressure, 1.25" by 2" edge bent shank, twin-spring shank mount and free-floating CoverMax closer coulters which ensure your high-value nutrient input is covered underneath the soil.  All Renegade anhydrous ammonia applicators are standard with a Raven Vortex stainless steel cooler, ISOBUS controller and a single anhydrous ammonia safety coupler for convenient nurse tank connection.  With a wide range of factory installed options and accessories, you can tailor your NH3 applicator to fit your operation's needs.
