A range of new developments aimed at upping the accuracy and quality of agrochemical applications were featured by Kuhn at the recent SIMA Show in Paris.

Technology demonstrated on the Metris 2 trailed sprayer included the company’s new auto-spray facility, a the new Lea 3 aluminium boom, plus the Boom Assist Extreme functions – all of which should assist in making the spray operator’s job easier.

The auto-spray’s precision system works with smart nozzle technology to allow spraying over a range of operating speeds, simply by setting droplet size and dose from the cab; while the Lea 3 aluminium boom allows nozzle spacing to be set at 25cm or 50cm intervals, and the electronic boom management system works in conjunction with other technologies to maximise accuracy of applications.
