CropTec insight into the future of application technology

Croptec banner

This year’s CropTec event will give growers and sprayer operators an insight into some of the latest advances in application technology, along with advice and tips to get the best out of every treatment.

Throughout the event presentations in the Spraying Technology Hub, on the Syngenta stand will address challenging topics, including how to optimise balancing efficacy, efficiency and environmental impact. 

Harry Fordham - Syngenta application specialist

Syngenta application specialist, Harry Fordham, highlighted new technologies have delivered a step change in targeting sprays more accurately, to achieve more effective results.

“Having a spray boom working on the Syngenta stand at CropTec, visitors will see in practice how the new developments can bring significant benefits for their application, as well as discuss results of in-field agronomy trials to understand the implications on a farm scale.”

The Spraying Technology Hub will also focus on research to extend the utilisation of 90% drift reduction nozzle technology beyond pre-emergence applications, with exciting results for cereal fungicides and potato applications.

Furthermore, looking at future technology for application – including advice apps and sprayer innovation such as pulse width modulation (PWM), for example – the Application Hub ensures growers and operators can keep up with the latest developments.

CropTec Spraying Application Hub presentations:

  • Optimising application to balance efficacy, efficiency and environmental impact         
  • Expanding 90% drift reduction technology beyond pre-emergence applications
  • Future technology, including Spray Assist app and PWM (pulse width modulation)

 Sprayer operators can also use CropTec as a chance to enter the Farm Sprayer Operator of the Year 2020 awards. Enter now for a chance to win a great study trip to Agritechnica in Germany, and the recognition of top sprayer operators doing a great job.
