Abstract: The performance of centrifugal spreaders can be evaluated by measuring their fertiliser distribution patterns in spreading halls. Compact experimental equipment was used to measure the tangential and the cylindrical distribution of the particle flow close to the edge of the disc. Additional information on the positions and velocity vectors of the particles when leaving the disc was obtained by photogrammetry. From these data, standard distribution patterns have been computed by means of a computer program simulating the ballistic flight of the particles.
