The firts work of our Fitosa Centauro sprayer: spraying wheat

It time for spraying. Fortunately, last week it rained in our area and our cereal and legumes are growing very quickly, together with weeds. We are on time to fight against broadleaf weeds.

It is the first work we have performed with our new Fitosa Centauro. I would like to highlight it works very fine. Foam marker offers us a valuable help, in spite of we used Cerea GPS manual guidance system too.

The labor was very easy and really fast thank to independent hydraulic legs of 14m with 4 hydraulic cylinders. The speed was about 10km/h and the used dose was of 200 litres/ha (we used Veejet H-DT plastic red flat spray nozzles and the pump was at 3.5 bar).

The day was sunny and while my twin brother drove our Agrotron M600, I could take a few really nice pictures...it was a funny day. However, the next day was very windy and after that we luckily had some rainy days so we had to stop for spraying at the moment.
