Micron Sprayers manufacture a wide range of horticultural spraying equipment that provides economic and environmental benefits for growers worldwide.
Micron have been at the forefront of innovation in spray technology, and invented and pioneered Controlled Droplet Application (CDA).
Controlled Droplet Application (CDA) was introduced into plantation agriculture in South East Asia more than a decade and a half ago because it offered significant advantages over high volume techniques for the application of herbicides. These included high work rates, reduced labour costs, improved chemical efficacy and reduced operator contamination.
In a region of increasing labour shortage all of these factors continue to make Controlled Droplet Application the most appropriate technique for herbicide application within the plantation sector. Attention needs to be paid, however, to ensuring that the type of sprayer used and parameters of use ensure that the spray atomisation process optimises the efficacy of the herbicide applied.
Because of the low volumes which are possible using Controlled Droplet Application spraying typically 10-20 litres of spray mix per hectare compared with the 250-300 litres needed if spraying with a conventional knapsack sprayer, the amount of time and effort – both physical and logistical which needs to be spent fetching and carrying water is vastly reduced.
