It is no secret that soil rich in nutrients is one of the keys to optimal production. That is why the soil must be prepared and improved with different fertilizers that can be organic/natural such as manure, or chemical.
Regardless of the chosen fertilizer, you need a piece of suitable equipment such as a slurry tanker to help you transport it.
Slurry tanker is an agricultural equipment, powered by a tractor, used to spread liquid manure on the land.
