Advances in spreading accuracy had, up until this spring, been largely ignored, despite companies like Sulky putting tremendous efforts into improving the situation.
The hike in prices earlier this year has certainly awoken farming from its torpor and...
Looking at retro fit section control ,
any one done it and which is best system
t jet areos
had qoute for two different spayers , specced well up , both towards 90 k ,

Going back to doing the spraying myself with my own equipment.
My Berthoud Standard 12 needs work to pass it’s MOT, hopefully nothing too major, but should I bother with it, or just buy a new cheap brand?
It has hydraulic boom height, and boom levelling, and quad nozzle holders, all of which I...
We’ve a new to us 2010 418 and can’t get it to spray the right volume. Have it set at 160l/ha on the TeeJet rate controller but only once has it put out the right volume. Has anyone any ideas what could be causing this
I’m sure this question has been asked plenty of times before, but struggling to find an answer .
Upland Stock farm with plenty of steep ground looking for an easy to use reliable gps for spraying / fert etc. what would you recommend .
Changed all my worn nozzles today and went to do jug test,put pressure to 3 bar but some nozzles took a while to start spraying on a couple of sections. What could be the problem?
Suction filter blocked?air leak or other problem?
Any suggestions for a nozzle that is good for 200l at 3 bar and 10km/hr. Currently running Teejet StreamJet 7 for 300-350l/ha but I need a different size for 200l and they are £10-14 each depending on seller.
This is a bit of a one off some I’m wanting something cheaper ideally.
Weve a 2014 spirit and having problems with the pressure. When running at say 2-3 bar when applying product, when I turn the master switch off the pressure gauge goes off the scale, even blowing pipes off. This is when applying higher rates of around 200 litres or more. All filters and seals...
Our defy nozzles are worn out. We have generally been using them at 100l/ha for spring herbicides. What other nozzles/water rates are people using for Broadway star etc or should we stick with what we know?
Also do people agree with the Syngenta blurb that 100l/ha with Defry nozzles is...
After your thoughts and experiences of self propelled sprayers. I feel its time for me to upgrade my sprayranger, partly because I want a bigger tank (3000l+), slightly more ground clearance (want to go hydrostatic) as we have brought osr into the rotation, and I feel like a change. Have...
100 cows on 100 acres Cutting frequently to bales or zero grazing.
Regular reseed rotation and import quite a bit of nutrients in feed.
Not used any p or k for years just urea and sulphur for first 2/3 of the season going little and often.

Hi, this might be an odd question because I'm an engineer, not a farmer...
How do people make sure they are spraying at the correct application rate on small sprayers (<500l like this one: https://www.silvannz.co.nz/silvan-sprayers/eco-500l-linkage-sprayer/)?
From what I've seen they just have...
We use a fair bit of Motif and X-Change with Lo-drift Hypro nozzles, but find this mix can be very slow to settle and produces a lot of fine droplets that rise up in higher temperatures. Pressure is kept down to 2 bar and it may all be down to spraying when cooler.
With drift management in mind...
