Micron Group launches two new sprayers that are suited to vegetable crops, including asparagus

Precision sprayer specialists Micron Group is launching two new sprayers that are suited to vegetable and cereal crops.

Two new Micron Group sprayers will be on display at this year’s Cereals event (Stand 111), which is set to take place at Boothby Graffoe, Lincolnshire, from June 10 and 11 (2015).

Growers and industry professionals will be able to see the Varidome S3 100HiFlo model and the Varidome S3 Hybrid – complete with Micron’s Modular Tank System for work in asparagus.

The Varidome S3 100HiFlo is designed to be used on cereals and other narrowly planted crops such as onions and carrots. It features a 6.2 metre hydraulically folding toolbar with ground-following carriages fitted with the new innovative Varidome 100HiFlo spray shields.

The recently developed Varidome S3 Hybrid, mounted on Micron’s new Modular Tank System, will be specifically configured for inter-row herbicide application in asparagus. It will feature a hydraulically-folding boom fitted with a combination of rigid, fixed position hoods (Varidome 170HiFlo) and circular, freely rotating shields on a breakaway mechanism (Varidome UD600HiFlo) to allow users to spray right up to the base line of the crop. With the boom width of 3.6m, the sprayer can treat two asparagus beds at a time.

In addition to its latest innovations, Micron Group will be exhibiting the Weedswiper, a non-drip weed wiper for weed control in grassland and environmentally sensitive areas, as well as a range of equipment for manual applications.
