JOHN DEERE NUTRIENT APPLICATOR 2510H
2510H NUTRIENT APPLICATOR
Single disk opener
Speeds up to 10 mph
Low soil disturbance allows sidedressing right after planting to 30-inch tall corn
Why a single-disk opener?
In many areas, a conventional anhydrous application is a pass through the field at 8 km/h to 12 km/h (5 mph to 7.5 mph). To increase productivity, a few options are available:
Increase the operating speed, which is not always possible due to horsepower limitations, and at the same time keep the knife from tripping up or soil disturbance at faster speeds
Operate a wider applicator, which also requires more horsepower
The 2510Hs single-disk opener design has a lower draft requirement and allows anhydrous application up to 16 km/h (10 mph).
LOW SOIL DISTURBANCE
The single-disk opener on the 2510H utilizes a 559-mm (22-in.) blade that is angled 4 degrees to open a narrow slot for anhydrous application.
Reduced soil and residue disturbances provide a increased accuracy and placement during anhydrous application:
In highly erodible land areas
With no-till/min-till practices
Looking to save money side-dressing with anhydrous application
Productivity and low soil disturbance are two of the three ingredients for a successful side-dress application. The third is clearance under the frame and around the wheel modules.
Certain challenges exist when side-dressing using a conventional applicator:
Very short window
Early side-dress application with a conventional applicator can cause too much soil throw and damage or small corn plants. With a single-disk opener, soil disturbance is very low for early side-dressing, as early as right after planting.
As the season progresses and the corn gets taller, underframe clearance becomes vitally important to side-dressing using anhydrous application. The underframe clearance on the 2510H is 762 mm (30 in.) and there are no tandem wheel axles with low clearance. The 2510H increases the side-dress window by nearly 300 percent. The 2510H has configurations for off-row and on-row fertilizer banding in 16-row configurations. With a working width of 12.2 m (40 ft), the 16-row 2510H can be used for pre-planting and fall applications to apply on row. This allows for better matching of the tracks from application with subsequent tasks like planting. It also makes execution of banding easier. The 2510H High-Speed Applicator is truly a three-season machine: fall, spring, and side-dressing.
SHALLOW PLACEMENT DURING ANHYDROUS APPLICATION ALLOWS FOR MINIMAL SOIL DISTURBANCE
Traditional thinking is that anhydrous ammonia must be placed 203 mm (8 in.) deep in the soil. The 2510H High-Speed row unit places anhydrous applications at 114-mm (4.5-in.) depth, which is quite a difference from traditional thinking. John Deere has tested this placement across the Corn Belt in real-world field applications and plot-size treatments. More than 10000 acres of spring pre-plant anhydrous ammonia application yielded no reports of seedling damage. To further evaluate shallow placement, plot-scale studies were initiated with three university cooperators that put the concept to the test by planting right over the anhydrous application track seven days after application.
To avoid seedling damage with the 2510H, the same recommendations apply as when using a conventional shank applicator:
Allow a window of opportunity
Apply to the rows at an angle
Soil moisture conditions
RETENTION AT A SHALLOW DEPTH
John Deere has gone to great lengths to verify the anhydrous application retention provided by a 2510H is equal to that of a shank at a shallow depth.
Three methods were used to measure retention. The brick soil sampling method entailed extracting a brick of soil in the injection zone 24 hours after application and then sent off to a lab for analysis. A side-by-side comparison of the 2510H with a conventional shank revealed equal retention. The other two methods were the litmus paper test and the chamber technique to collect emissions. All three methods revealed equal retention with a shank applicator.
THREE-YEAR WARRANTY OFFERED ON 2510H

Failure to follow operator's manual recommendations
EQUIPPED WITH MULTIPLE SAFETY FEATURES
The 2510H is equipped for safe operation and safe transport with the following base equipment:
Hitch safety chain
Implement warning lights
IMPROVE WEAR, RESIDUE FLOW, AND SEALING WITH FLOATING SCRAPER
The floating scraper offered on 2510H High-Speed Applicators improves wear by allowing the scraper to float and flex along the blade during application. Instead of a rigid mount, the scraper has a spring pack that floats with the blade. This increases the wear life of the scraper assembly. The floating scraper also improves residue flow in high-residue conditions. Keeping the scraper in constant contact with the opener eliminates residue from getting caught between the scraper and the blade. A high-wear beaver tail extension is also available on the floating scraper for the 2510H Applicator. The beavertail extension helps improve sealing in various conditions.
SKI ELIMINATES BULL DOZING AND INCREASES PRODUCTIVITY
The optional ski on the 2510H High-Speed Applicator takes the place of the gauge wheel on the opener. The ski helps eliminate bull dozing of loose soil and residue in heavy primary-tillage conditions.

INCREASED NUTRIENT STEWARDSHIP
The 2510H with dry attachment's single-disk opener design improves nutrient stewardship by properly placing nutrients to ensure plants thrive and reach their maximum yield potential while being environmentally responsible. The single-disk opener allows the operator to apply nutrients up to 16 km/h (10 mph). Operators will benefit from proper nutrient placement and realize maximum asset utilization that can quickly apply anhydrous and dry nutrients. This machine delivers a 50 percent increase in equipment asset utilization and application speeds up to 16 km/h (10 mph) to feed plants when they need it most and assisting producers to ensure proper which agronomics potentially reduces application rates and achieves maximum yield. Applying nitrogen (N), phosphorous (P), and potassium (K) in the right place puts nutrients closer to the root zone where they are more readily available. Multiple university studies have shown up to a 20-bushel increase, greater in corn yields, with accurate nutrient placement applied at the right time. The single-disk opener precisely delivers dry fertilizer up to 114-mm (4.5-in.) deep and anhydrous up to the depth of 140 mm (5.5 in.).
MINIMAL SOIL DISTURBANCE
The single-disk opener on the 2510H with dry attachment utilizes a 559-mm (22-in.) blade that is angled 4 degrees to open a narrow slot for the nutrient placement. Reduced soil disturbance and sub-surface application helps implement the nutrient reduction strategy, which is a science and technology based approach to achieving a 45 percent reduction in nitrogen and phosphorus losses to waterways.
The objectives of the nutrient reduction strategy are to reduce:
Drinking water treatments
Hypoxia in Gulf and Great Lakes (most publicized)
Runoff into Chesapeake Bay
Recreational use of water limitations
Negative agriculture public perception
15-ROW THREE-SEASON APPLICATION
Side-dressing nitrogen (N), phosphorous (P), and potassium (K) in addition to pre-plant N, P, and K application in corn has several advantages compared to pre-plant applications only. Some of the benefits include providing these nutrients closer to when they are needed by the crop, reducing the potential for nutrient losses, and the opportunity to adjust nutrient application rates to achieve yield goals. The underframe clearance on the 2510H with dry attachment is 914 mm (36 in.).
EQUIPPED WITH MULTIPLE SAFETY FEATURES
The 2510H with dry attachment is equipped for safe operation and safe transport with the following base equipment:
Slow-moving-vehicle (SMV) emblem
Hitch safety chain
Implement warning lights
Hydraulic valve flow shut-offs
Safety railing on platform
2510H WITH DRY NUTRIENT ATTACHMENT INCLUDES 15-ROW AND 16-ROW CONFIGURATION
All three of the primary nutrients nitrogen, phosphorous, and potassium can be applied at the right time by the 2510H with dry nutrient attachment to feed crops when they most need it. This integrated solution helps producers achieve the 4R objectives for improving application rate, coverage, and accuracy. To further improve the capabilities of this solution.
The John Deere 2510H with dry nutrient attachment now has configurations for off-row and on-row dry fertilizer banding in 15-row and 16-row configurations. With a working width of 12.2 m (40 ft), the 16-row 2510H with dry attachment can be used for pre plant and fall applications to apply on row. This allows for better matching of the tracks from application with subsequent tasks, like planting. It also makes execution of banding easier. By applying off row, the 11.43-m (37.5-ft) wide 15-row configuration has the additional capability to side dress.
Both configurations offer 6- and 9-ton dry poly tank options that work in tandem with the applicator bar to place anhydrous and dry nutrients in the ground. As an all-in-one, fully integrated package, the 2510H with dry attachment helps provide plants with the nutrients they need, when they need them, to boost yield potential. No retrofit options are available to convert an existing 15-row configuration to a 16-row configuration.
