Band spraying

Realize large savings relatively easily

Band spraying

Band spraying allows us to apply resources more efficiently on crops grown in rows. By applying resources only on or between crop rows, large savings can easily be achieved. In addition, we prevent unnecessary stress on the crops and optimize yields. For successful row spraying, it is essential to hold the nozzles precisely and stably above the plant rows. The Agrifac self-propelled sprayer, with its stability, is the machine of choice for this.

What is band spraying?

Band spraying is the spraying of a crop grown in rows. By spraying only a row/ strip, large savings can be achieved relatively easily. Row spraying occurs when the crop is not yet in ”full canopy” or in other words the soil is not yet fully covered by the crop biomass. In these crop stages it is possible to apply band spraying, band spraying can be divided into 2 applications:

  1. Band spraying on top of the crop.
    Fungicide, herbicide or insecticide applications. Such as aphids in potatoes.
  2. Band spraying between the crop.
    Herbicide applications.

Why band spraying with a sprayer and not in combination with a hoeing machine?…

The working width of a hoe is usually limited to the working width of the seeder. Usually ranging from 3 to 6 metres. The working speed is between 2 and 10 km/h. In contrast, the capacity of a sprayer is much higher, allowing as much spraying as possible in the most optimal conditions.

Hoeing is done in sunny weather where the soil should not be too moist. Under these conditions, the best hoeing results are achieved and the roots the hoeed weeds dry out fastest. In contrast, the optimum spraying conditions are in moderate weather conditions, and moist soil is important for soil herbicides to work properly.
