Spraying robot for greenhouse crop protection

Home/Glass Greenhouses/Spraying robot for greenhouse crop protection

Project Description

The Micothon tube/rail spraying robot is available in a semi-automatic or a fully automatic version. The fully automatic spraying robot takes care of the completely automatic spraying of your greenhouse. 

Micothon Smart Spray TechnologySpraying robot for Tube/Rail systems

The tube/rail spraying robot uses the tubes of the heating/transportsystem in your greenhouse to drive between the beds. Also the transportunit automatically moves from one row to another on the main path.

The fully automatic robot works without human intervention.  Just set the programme and the robot does the rest. As a result your greenhouse is free of pests in just one night!

The machine is also available in a semi automatic version. The transportunit is moved by hand from one path to the next. Therefore it needs an operator to guide the machine in the process. Both versions deliver the same high spraying quality, since the spraying units are identical.

No tube/rail system in your greenhouse? Not to worry, alternatively, you can choose for the Micothon Wheeled Spraying machine. With this version there is no need for a tube/rail guiding system.

Standard equipment of Micothon Tube/Rail Spraying Robot

The basic machine comes with a number of standard features such as:

  • stainless steel construction
  • antiskid transport rollers
  • anti-collision bars for safety
  • emergencyfeatures and safety buttons
  • the best spraying nozzles for your specific needs
  • automatic driving of the spraying unit into the transport trolley
  • easy to understand user interface with touch screen in several languages.

  • Air assisted spraying comes as a standard feature on Micothon automatic spraying robots.

This is by far the most appreciated option, because it provides a far better coverage and consequently gives a much better result for your crop management. Tests show that Micothon air assisted spraying has a 79% better spraying result.

Optional extra’s

Because of the long list of standard equipment, the list of options is short, depending on your crop and cultivation system.

Custom made Spray Boom

The tube/rail greenhouse spraying robots can be equipped with an optional Modular Spray Boom. It can be fixed as high as your plants are so you can easily adjust it to your needs. The max. length of the boom is 9,6 m.

It allows you to spray several beds at once, therefore you save considerable time in the process.

Optional Smart Spray Technology by Micothon

Newly developed Smart Spray Technology can be ordered on the fully automatic version of the Micothon spraying robot. This technology adds smart programming functions for precision spot spraying. Our customers love it.

We recommend you to watch the video with Rosebreeders PortaNova and SK Roses about this new feature.

Most noteworthy to these first time users of Smart Spray Technology are:

  • No disruption of growth if there is no infestation, resulting in higher yield per hectare.
  • No excess spraying resulting in annual savings of ppp fluid consumption up to 80%
  • Reduction of Plant protection products is environmentally friendly
  • No unnecessary disruption of biological greenhouse balance
  • Easy to use. You can transfer the supplied greenhouse map as Excel file via USB connection
  • Software and hardware can in most cases be updated to existing Micothon Automatic Spraying Robots.
  • Return on investment is exceptionally high.
