Sprays and sprayers put to the test at Cereals 2018

Crop protection and chemical usage is a hot topic at the moment, with pressure mounting on farmers to be more precise with applications – for both environmental and financial reasons. 

 However, with technological advancements happening at an equally fast pace, it’s easy to get lost in the plethora of sprayer technology available on the market – and it can be even harder to make a decision without seeing the kit in action.

 Profiling the most up-to-date application technology, the Syngenta Sprays & Sprayers Arena will feature again at this year’s Cereals event. The latest sprayers on the market will be put through their paces in live demonstrations throughout both days, giving visitors the opportunity to talk directly to manufacturers and compare new products and services. “The Syngenta Sprays and Sprayers Arena is a great opportunity to see the latest technology on offer, and novel innovations to ensure crop protection products are applied correctly and safely,” says Cat Gray, Syngenta. “Throughout the two days, Syngenta Application Experts will be carrying out informative, live demonstrations of how to get the best from your sprayer.”

 The arena is set to put 40 of the latest sprayers to test – showing visitors what’s on the market to help them improve efficiency and reduce costs. Below is a flavour of just some of the kit that visitors will see in action at this year’s Cereals Event (13-14 June).
