This new product has been designed and developed by us to meet the needs of today’s advanced growers. A combination of technology and product knowledge has created a machine which will reduce overhead costs whilst increasing yields and reducing the effect on the environment.
Designed with a triple tank system, the Smart Spray can accommodate widths of up to 9 metres and is ideal for treating a variety of arable crops. In simple terms, a non-selective product is applied between the rows through a shrouded nozzle which is mounted on a pantograph linkage mechanism to ensure a constant distance from the soil to deliver weed control without damaging the crop. There is also the option to simultaneously apply a second product, such herbicide or fungicide to the plant, completing two jobs in a single pass. The toolbar is fully adjustable easily allowing the treatment of different crops.
