Micron’s shrouded weed control sprayers to be showcased at Fruit Focus

03-May-2017 by: Micron Group

Micron Group, precision spraying specialists, have announced their plans for this year’s Fruit Focus event. The manufacturer will use its stand to showcase its Enviro range of shrouded sprayers for weed control in fruit and vines. Visitors to the stand will also be able to see the hydraulically powered Turbofan spray head for foliar treatments.

The Micron Enviro series of sprayers, now available in high pressure nozzle and CDA atomiser versions, incorporate a fully shielded design to fully minimise the risk of spray drift. The Undavina and Spraydome models on display feature a freely rotating shield and spring loaded breakaway arm that allows users to spray right up to the base of the tree or bush without causing mechanical damage to the target resulting in excellent spray results. Available in various sizes to suit different applications, Micron Enviro sprayers can be ATV, UTV or tractor mounted.

As well as the Enviro range for herbicide applications, the company will be exhibiting its sprayers for foliar treatments. Visitors looking for a vehicle-mounted solution will be able to find out more about the Turbofan - an air-assisted CDA spray head for fungicide and insecticide applications. Highly suitable for use in soft and top fruit where good crop penetration is desired, Turbofan features a hydraulically-driven rotary atomiser and a built-in axial fan which produces a powerful yet directed air stream to convey spray to the target.

The company’s popular hand held Herbi sprayers will also be on display.
