OptiPhil 315728 102 Crop Surfer - Sprayer Demo either
Crop Surfer - Sprayer Demo
This system was developed in Sweden for increasing the
performance of farm chemicals and reducing off-target drift.
Its the 1st one in the USA and we installed it on an AS500
Apache sprayer in KY and sprayed a fungicide across the top
The system bolts onto the sprayer boom and opens the crop by
means of a poly-flap and sprays the fungicide (in this
photo) down into the opened area of the canopy. The nozzles
are supported on a stainless steel parrallel linkage system
to hold the nozzles a constant height above the crop once
the flap runs along the top of the crop.
The system does reduce drift significantly, even with flat
fan nozzles at 40-50PSI. If we ever get soybean rust in this
area, it will work very well to fight the disease I believe.
