Modern control techniques for orchards and vineyards require technological solutions that can increase the efficacy of the treatments while decreasing the impact on the environment.
Treatments of orchards and vineyards are, in fact, essential for obtaining quality products. And, in addition to choosing the best product and timing for spraying, you also need to identify the best machinery in order to optimise these tasks. This is especially important for large crops and results in significant savings in terms of time and resources.
That is why, as sprayer manufacturers, here in IDEAL, we design and manufacture solutions that ensure farmers achieve their goals through a more rational use of plant protection products that limits incorrect use and lowers operating costs.
To treat trees, for example, in vineyards, orchards and olive groves, pesticides are usually distributed by air sprayers for medium and high volumes, thus ensuring comprehensive and uniform coverage of vegetation and optimisation of treatment times.
The agricultural sprayers are, in fact, adapted to different types of crops and meet a series of requirements. But to guarantee the best treatment results in vineyards and orchards with tall, dense vegetation, they must be able to generate a powerful volume of air to achieve uniform coverage and penetration of the product in concealed vegetation as well.
IDEAL’s solution for these requirements is the Perfection sprayer.
All of IDEAL’s sprayers are fitted with powerful axial fans for fast, accurate spraying and distribution.
The hallmark feature that sets the Perfection sprayer apart from all other sprayers is its fan with two ø 800 mm counter-rotating propellers that produce a perfectly balanced, high volume of air for long-range spraying. Moreover, if a greater volume of air is required, the machine can be fitted with ø 900 mm propellers.
The different air conveyors, with which it can also be fitted, ensure consistently effective treatments on various types of crops, including large, dense and tall crops.
More specifically, you can choose between:
- version for espalier plantation system, with applicable tower-shaped conveyor;
- version specific for espaliers crops with high and leafy plants, with appliccable higher tower-shaped conveyor “citrus”;
- version for very high plants with appliccable “hops” conveyor with gun-jets;
- version for 2 rows (of vineyard) with “Charentes” stainelss steel conveyor.
Perfection comes with polyethylene tanks with a capacity of 1,000, 1,500, 2,000 and 3,000 litres, and is the ideal trailed sprayer for tractors for faster and more accurate treatments on various types of large crops.
The machine can be customised with specific air conveyors allowing the operator to aim the spray solution directly at the vegetation, thus combining the power of the sprayer fan, required to ensure the correct distribution of the crop protection product, with the more accurate treatment.
The result is uniform treatment which reaches all the vegetation and reduces waste and dispersion of the product which could lead to drift.
Choosing the agricultural sprayer most suited to the type of crop to be treated and to the system specifications is the key factor for achieving your protection goals and obtaining the best possible crop yield.
At IDEAL, we have developed the Perfection sprayer specifically to meet the needs of farmers who require a machine capable of ensuring excellent results and a wide range of use in large vineyards and orchards. A sprayer that combines great power with efficacy and efficiency, saving time and resources, and providing economic and environmental benefits.
