New narrow spraying machine with a large wingspan.Equipment Vegetables
Micothon presents: The Flamingo!
A large grower of tomato plants was looking for a narrow spraying machine for the automatic spraying of its client’s plants. The spraying machine had to be suitable for an ebb and flood irrigation floor, narrow enough to be able to drive through the plants and high enough to also be able to treat the higher crops. Micothon therefore developed a special extra narrow spraying machine. It has a unique transport guide that keeps the machine neatly in the guide track of the floor.
