Croplands sprayers were put to the test at a recent avocado spray field day held in the Toowoomba Highlands. Sunnyspot Packhouse hosted the day which attracted a crowd of growers from around the region.

Croplands territory managers, Rob Graham and Dave Farmer, were on hand to demonstrate the Quantum Mist™ Ultra Tower and Cropliner with 1060mm fan with both sprayers delivering excellent results in spray coverage tests on the day.

“Croplands Quantum Mist™ and our Fieni airblast fans are unmatched for coverage in orchard spray application worldwide, it was great to demonstrate this to the growers who came along to the Sunnyspot Field Day”, says Rob Graham.

The Quantum Mist™ Ultra Tower is ideal for spraying larger tree crops like avocados, citrus or mangoes and allows growers to cover ground faster whilst still delivering superior coverage.

“The best way to deliver spray to the intended target is via a high-volume, turbulent airstream – our industry leading Quantum Mist™ fans achieves this, allowing the spray to penetrate deep inside the canopy.” says Rob.

The Quantum Mist™ Ultra Towers are fitted with either eight or ten individual fans.

The Cropliner with 1060 airblast fan also delivered exceptional coverage results in the demonstrations at Sunnyspot. The 1060 fan, designed and constructed in Italy by Fieni - a brand well known for its quality and innovation in agricultural air-blast fans – was released in 2015 to meet the spraying demands of tall tree growers. With its ability to produce up to 100,000 M3/hr of air, it is one of the largest airblast machines in the Australian market. Croplands offer this fan with either a 4000 or 3000 litre Cropliner tank and a host of different options to meet individual grower needs.

“The Croplands philosophy is simple – make sprayers that are tough, dependable and provide growers with maximum spray coverage potential no matter the variety or crop type.” says Rob.
