Crop Protection

According to Micothon the result depends 50% on the plant protection products and 50% on the spraying technique.

In other words: you are better off giving your crop an expert spraying with a friendly plant protection product than spraying it badly with a good quality agent.


Air-assisted system

Micothon is the inventor of air-assisted spraying in greenhouses, a technique that results in better penetration and coverage and therefore in better protection. To guarantee the effectiveness of the Micothon system we have subjected this spraying technology to extensive testing.

The test results show that when using a Micothon system:

  • The spraying result is 79% better than with a standard spraying machine
  • The interval between spraying sessions is increased from 22 days to 44 days, which means 17 fewer spray sessions a year
  • A grower with a 4 ha greenhouse will recover the cost of the machine within a year.
  • What’s more, less spraying means less harm to the environment, brings about a considerable reduction in labour while also reducing the work risks.
