Shielded sprayer for ornamental horticulture to be presented


Varidome S3

Varidome S3

Manufacturer of precision sprayers and applicators, Micron Group, will present its tractor-mounted Varidome band sprayer and a range of portable equipment for tree nurseries and ornamental crops at this year’s Four Oaks event which takes place on 2nd – 3rd September in Macclesfield, Cheshire.
Visitors to Micron’s stand OP32 will be able to see the Varidome S1 mounted on Micron’s 100 litre Tank System. The sprayer uses shielded technology which allows users to safely and accurately target weeds growing between the rows of plants. Varidome’s shields are proven to reduce drift by over 95% which means non-selective herbicides can be put through the sprayer thus significantly reducing chemical cost. The sprayer also offers environmental benefits as the spray is only applied where it is needed. Each Varidome’s shield is mounted on a ground following wheel to further reduce drift and provide better product placement.
The Varidome S1 on display will be fitted with a number of different of shield sizes to demonstrate the sprayer’s versatility for a wide range of applications. New to the show, Micron will reveal the Varidome 100 HiFlo shield for narrowly planted crops such as flowers, seed production and tree nurseries. Fitted with a hydraulic pressure nozzle, the shield is capable of treating inter-rows between 10 to 45 centimetres and can be supplied on a lightweight or heavy duty carriage to suit the terrain.
Micron will also showcase the Herbi range of hand-held sprayers for weed control, the AU8000 atomiser for outdoor insecticide and fungicide treatments and the highly popular Electrafan for pest control in enclosed environments.
