Typically sown in mid-August to mid to late September, oilseed rape or Canola, is now one of the most common ‘break crops’ and an important part of many arable rotations. From the stage of the crop being drilled, the rapeseed plant will produce leaves throughout the Autumn and Winter seasons before leaf development ceases due to the warmer temperatures in the Spring. From here, flower bud emergence begins and the crop grows to reach heights of between 100 – 160cm, whilst the pods develop.
Once developed, the seed sits at the tip of the crop. Being a very fragile crop, farmers must be very cautious of their spraying activity when treating rapeseed (Canola). A high clearance machine is ideal for working in this crop, enabling the sprayer to glide above the oil seed rape and eliminate damage.
Enhance your Condor with these innovative spraying technologies
Best coverage and up to 95% drift reduction with, HighTechAirPlus (HTA)
Changing (weather) conditions, the right amount of chemicals, a smaller window of opportunity: A challenge you can tackle with the HighTechAirPlus system. HighTechAirPlus is a combination of traditional spraying, air assistance and mixing in the nozzle holders. The perfect combination to create a constant and easily set droplet size that can be adjusted to changing conditions from the cab.
Air assistance to get the chemicals to the right spot, AirFlowPlus
Agrifac is introducing the air assistance system, AirFlowPlus. The distinguishing feature of this system is the installation of fans every three metres. This creates an unprecedented air capacity and uniform distribution of the air across the total width of the spray boom, irrespective of the working widths and the number of boom sections you are working with!
Always quality spraying and the right balance, StrictHeightPlus
With StrictHeightPlus, BalancePlus and variable geometry work together to ensure the boom hangs freely in all conditions. The boom moves freely and the movements of the machine are not transferred to the boom. Four sensors with a wide viewing angle that are placed on the boom send the machines a reliable and precise measurement of the crop.
StrictSprayPlus gives you the certainty that the desired amount of liquid is sprayed in the right place. Boom sections consist of just one nozzle, there is 100% turn compensation and a constant spray pressure irrespective of speed
