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
- Point-source pollution
- Recreational use of water limitations
- Negative agriculture public perception

Side-dress in conventional corn ground
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.).
