Featuring CDA (Controlled Droplet Application) technology, Flexidome is a shielded tractor-mounted sprayer which has been specifically developed for weed control in soft fruit grown in raised beds outdoors or in Spanish tunnels.
Rotary atomisers are mounted under spring loaded circular shields which rotate freely against the bed. This enables growers to spray right up to the shoulder of the bed resulting in efficient weed control and significant labour savings. The spray heads are completely covered by the soft plastic domes which contain the spray droplets and eliminate drift, thus enabling the spraying operation to be carried out in windy weather conditions.
Flexidome can be supplied in two or four head configurations with the ability to treat inter-row widths of 0.5 to 1 metre. A choice of tank sizes is available to suit users’ requirements.
An optional ‘leg row sprayer’ is also available which enables growers to spray the leg of the polytunnel at the same time as the inter-row in the beds. A five bed tunnel can be sprayed in two passes.
