About Super Air
ACCURATELY DELIVERING YOUR FARM'S NUTRIENT NEEDS
We utilise maps of your farm and technology in our aircraft to plan and place fertiliser precisely. We can provide reporting that includes accurate proof-of-application for your farm.
HERE'S HOW OUR PROCESS WORKS:
1. WE MAP YOUR FARM
First, we create a highly accurate geospatial map of your farm. This digital map provides you with the precise information needed to make better-informed decisions to maximise your fertiliser investment.
Since 1988, we have been leaders in fixed-wing aerial application of solid fertiliser and lime. We have the capability and technology to ensure the highest levels of accuracy possible, maximising your investment. Our nationwide fleet are industry leading, and specifically designed for fertiliser application. Utilising the state-of-the art SpreadSmart system and GPS technology, Super Air integrates with your farm map and reporting tools to provide accurate proof-of-application of nutrients on your farm.
To ensure optimum accuracy, and the best agronomic result, our aircrafts’ guidance system validates its position by receiving 10 signals every second from up to 25 satellites - allowing it to precisely place fertiliser with market-leading accuracy.
Super Air aircraft provide cost-effective aerial application of fertiliser on areas that ground spreaders can not reach, and can also compete with ground spreaders on the cost of N application with bigger block applications.
OUR SUPERIOR TECHNOLOGY
The investment we have made into our technology gives us the ability to use our aircraft to spray pasture and crops, fight fires, and assist Maritime NZ with oil dispersion.
We have recently welcomed Rural Air Services and Phoenix Aviation to the Super Air team. We are committed to continuing to build upon the already-established and proven services provided by these two strong local companies.
2. PRECISE FERTILISER PRESCRIPTION
We create a detailed digital map allows you to prescribe precisely where nutrients are required on your farm.
It takes into account exclusion zones and sensitive areas such as waterways, wetlands and native bush, eliminating product wastage and ensuring you stay compliant with local and central government regulations and reporting requirements.
This prescriptive approach provides you with a new way of thinking about fertiliser application and keeps the decisions in your hands to align with your goals.
3. OUR SPREADSMART TECHNOLOGY
SpreadSmart allows you to place the right product, at the right application rate - in the right place, at the right time.
SpreadSmart software controls the hydraulics to automate the aircraft’s hopper for faster, more precise and safer fertiliser application.
SpreadSmart’s onboard computer adjusts the rate at which fertiliser is applied to different parts of your farm in line with what you have prescribed. By allowing for constant and/or variable rate application depending on your farm’s terrain and fertility, fertiliser products can be applied precisely where you need them for the best response.
4. YOUR PROOF OF APPLICATION
Once your fertiliser application has been completed, we can provide you with an accurate proof-of-application map that highlights the flight lines and application rate of your fertiliser.
Super Air allows you to enable your farm’s Environmental Plan with confidence and provides you with the proof that you are complying with environmental regulations.
