Kverneland iXtra LiFe

The iXtra LiFe works in combination with the Kverneland Optima precision seeder to apply the liquid fertiliser during seeding.

In Front of a Good Start

The iXtra LiFe together with the Kverneland Optima precision seeder ensures that seeds are sown at the right place and applies the correct amount of liquid fertiliser at the same time. For the best start of the crop, the liquid fertiliser is placed close to the seed. The smart electronics on both seeder and front tank communicate so the application starts and stops together with each individual row. The iXtra LiFe provides liquid fertiliser close to the rows of the precision seeder. With the stricter fertilisation legislation an efficient nutrient application is key to reduce the total amount of fertiliser every year. Row fertilisation is a way to increase efficiency and save money due to a better placement of the fertiliser near the seeds.

The advantages

  • 100% ISOBUS compatibilty
  • The liquid fertiliser will be placed near the seed row in one go and will create a faster start
  • Faster growing of the crop. This means a faster covering of the field to avoid weed development
  • Save costs of fertiliser and seeds, because of no overlap
  • In combination with Precision Seeders, liquid fertiliser during seeding is possible, see Kverneland Optima TFprofi/ Optima V/ Optima rigid/ Optima PH
  • Better use of nutrients

Technical specifications

Front Tank

Volume and Weight distribution
With a 1300 litre maximum tank volume of liquid fertiliser (nominal volume of 1100 litre) the front tank is well balanced and gives an equal weight distribution with 2 x 65 litre rinsing water.

Parking and Hitching
Easy to hitch and park: hydraulic driven pump (no PTO shaft needed), plug & play ISOBUS cable and parking wheels for quick connection.

Control System
ISOBUS electronics: up to 18 individual sections combined with electric driven seeding rows on the seed drills and planters ensure exact row switching without overlap on both seeds and fertiliser. IsoMatch GEOCONTROL with GPS control row by row automatically for optimal driver comfort.

Independent
Complete sprayer functionality „without boom“. Meaning; including own electronics, pressure regulator, section valves and cleaning system.

Electrical level indicator
An electrical level indicator provides actual tank volume to a spraying computer as well as via the external display on the valve panel.

Row fertilisation

The iXtra LiFe front tank stands for precision farming. The electronics, ISOBUS, ensures there is no overlap by operating with section control for seed and fertiliser.

Efficient
Row fertilisation is a way to increase efficiency and save money due to a better placement of the fertiliser near the seeds. Because of the increased efficiency lower rates can be used, creating space in tight fertilisation plans for additional use of organic fertilisers. This contributes to increase soil organic matter content and improve soil fertility.

Smart
The iXtra LiFe nozzles follow the status of the ISOBUS planter when switching on or off sections and regulates the application rates based on driving speed. The iXtra LiFe can also work standalone, for example in combination with inner row cultivators or mechanical weeding.

Easy
IsoMatch GEOCONTROL manages your dosing rates and section status for both the liquid application and the planters seed rows automatically, so the driver can focus on the seeding process.

iXclean

iXclean prevents that unintended residual enters the environment and ensures a clean working space.

The iXtra LiFe has an integrated agitation and cleaning system as standard: ENFO Inside.
This smart technology optimises filling and cleaning of the spray lines, even when the tank is still filled. This is an accurate application, there is no waste of liquid and you are saving water. These are important benefits for you and your environment.

ISOBUS Electronics

The iXtra LiFe is 100% ISOBUS compatible as standard, which means easy plug and play with the IsoMatch Tellus GO+ or PRO or any other AEF certified terminal. 

Precise product application (seeds and fertiliser) in a row or band

IsoMatch GEOCONTROL with GPS automatically switch on or off sections in exactly the right place, ensuring that there is no overlap in the headland or in any row that has already been covered. This is especially in cases of triangular fields and irregular shaped headlands. The automatic Section Control reduces overlap of seeding and spraying. Up to 18 individual sections, for combined work of the iXtra LiFe together with electric driven sowing units on the seed drills or planters, is Section Control that ensure exact row switching.

For the iXtra LiFe in combination with the arable machine. It is working as a Master Slave principle, the seeder sections are giving signal to sprayer sections to be switched on or off. This row fertilisation and seeding will increase efficiency, save cost and is a better use of nutrients.

Variable rate control

As any other Kverneland ISOBUS sprayer, the iXtra LiFe providing Variable Rate (VRA) functionality based on prescription maps or online sensors for variable applications.

Multipurpose sprayer

The iXtra LiFe is the ISOBUS multipurpose sprayer without a boom.

Because it has it‘s own complete spraying system including ISOBUS electronics and section valves it can work standalone or together with other implements like seeders, planters, hoes and cultivators. With a result for more precise application as band spraying or targeted to the fertiliser, which will reduce the application rate and will reduce the amount of fertiliser.

The iXtra LiFe sprayer can be used in combination with a lot of different arable machinery. The available iXtra LiFe equipment is prepared for targeted (zonal) application of different products e.g. liquid fertiliser, pesticides, pickling agents, bacteria, inoculants or other products.

iXtra LiFe all year round 

There are different ways of using the iXtra LiFe during the year. Early spring together with seed bed preparation and seeding. During late spring and summer for giving fertiliser to the crops, crop protection and residue management. In autumn again in combination with seed bed preparation and seeding. Winter is time for maintenance to be ready for next busy year.
