LAMMA 2013: Micron to launch new Varidome sprayer


Micron Group will use its stand 156 (Hall 1A) at Lamma 2013 as a launch pad for its largest to date Varidome S5 band sprayer.
Building on its Varidome S1 and S3 models, Varidome S5 is a 9 metre wide inter-row sprayer which has been specifically designed for use in crops planted with an 8 metre drill.

Aimed at the broad acre farmer, Varidome S5 is a highly useful tool for controlling persistent weeds such as blackgrass in OSR, sugar beet, maize and many other row-grown crops.
The product is applied to the inter-row through hydraulic pressure nozzles which are housed under oval domes for drift free spraying. This results in a highly targeted and accurate application and significant savings in chemical compared to blanket spraying.

Capable of spraying of up to 9 metres a pass, Varidome S5 offers high productivity and is capable of treating up to 150 acres a day. The machine can be fitted with up 24 shielded heads to suit the crop row spacing. Spray width is easily adjustable on each individual head (ranging from 100mm to 800mm) enabling operators to treat desired inter-row and wheeling widths.

Additionally, Varidome S5 can be supplied with two spray lines for inter-row weed control and over the row application to crop with the different tank mixes being fed from Micron’s Dual Tank System. This means users can treat the inter-row with a contact weed spray under the shield and simultaneously apply a selective spray over-row, thus halving operator time in the field.

When not in use, Varidome S5’s centre section folds up to allow the two side sections to fold in underneath for compact transportation and storage.

As well as the new Varidome, Micron will be displaying its shielded CDA sprayers – specifically, Undavina, Spraydome, Spraymiser models - and the new Micron 100 litre Tank System for treating field margins and general weed control. Micron’s shielded CDA range offers minimised spray drift, excellent spray accuracy and increased productivity.

Furthermore, visitors to the Micron Group stand will also be able to see its WeedSwiper, a non-drip weed wiper for the control of weeds in horticultural crops, pasture, amenity and conservation areas. WeedSwiper delivers herbicide onto the weeds via direct contact with its herbicide-moistened pads and is ideal in situations where conventional spraying is not desirable.
