implement operation problems when a diagnostic head is required.
Being part of the Farol service team means I get great opportunities to keep up

Let one of our highly training staff visit your sprayer in-
season and work with you to get the best performance from
your machine. As well as ensuring the mechanical aspects of
the sprayer are best set for the crop, we will make sure you
understand the technical features of the machine to make sure
you are using the technology most effectively.
• The average sprayer is 90% inefficient (i.e. only 10% of the chemical hit the plant source)
• Chemicals are becoming more expensive and plants more resistant meaning more
applications of spray and more cost.
• A tiny droplet 100 microns in diameter (about the diameter of a human hair) takes 11
seconds to fall 10 feet. At 50 microns, it takes 40 seconds to fall that far
• With such high potential for incorrect application, it’s important to get your machine
setup and optimised for your specific crop with pressure, droplet size and application rate all
correctly calibrated. See below for how Farol can help optimise your machine this season.
