New release: Lemken fertiliser spreaders

A new commercial partnership will see Lemken expand its product portfolio to offer Sulky fertiliser spreaders

Heading into Agritechnica 2019, Nicola Lemken and Julien Burel have announced a commercial partnership between their companies (Lemken and Sulky).

From this November, Lemken will expand its product portfolio and offer Sulky fertiliser spreaders in its own blue design. The product range comprises three series with a total of five models, which Lemken retail partners will distribute around the globe.


The three series – Spica, Tauri, and Polaris – come with tank volumes ranging from 900 to 4000 litres and a broad range of control options, from a basic version through to 100% ISOBUS.

The new fertiliser spreaders meet the most stringent requirements regarding precision of application and economy. Comfortable setting options guarantee that fertiliser is applied precisely and economically. The Lemken fertiliser spreaders are, therefore, high-quality products, which optimally complement the company’s existing product portfolio in tillage, sowing, and crop care.

Lemken and Sulky both aim for a strong partnership with numerous benefits. While Lemken is able to increase its market relevance significantly with this new product segment, Sulky achieves the reliable utilisation of its production facilities. These are important factors for both companies, if they are to remain strong and independent while also delivering added value to specialist dealers and farmers.

Sulky is a family-owned business, as is Lemken, and share the same values and goals. Both companies’ business focus lies on developing innovative technology, which is strongly aligned with farmers’ current needs.

Nicola Lemken says, "We’re very happy about this cooperation, and we’re convinced that it will allow us to support our customers even better.

"Optimally harmonised processes, from stubble cultivation through to fertilisation produce clear economic and agricultural benefits to farmers."

The three series come with tank volumes ranging from 900 to 4000L

Lemkem, a specialist for professional arable farming with annual sales of EUR 380 million, and a global company employing more than 1600 staff, is one of Europe’s leading suppliers.

Founded as a blacksmith’s shop in 1780, the company produces high-quality, high-performance agricultural implements for soil cultivation, seeding, and plant protection.

Sulky-Burel employs 250 staff and is specialised in the development, manufacture, and sale of agricultural technology in the tillage, sowing, and fertilisation segments.  Sulky was established in 1936 and has its headquarters in Chateaubourg (France).
