General Manager’s Welcome Dear Customer At Croplands we seek to deliver outstanding value to our customers, with this in mind we are releasing a 4000 litre model Pinto to the market. Designed to meet the needs of medium sized cropping and pasture operations, this is a practical and well designed sprayer with a range of top end features. With demonstrations held across Australia earlier this year, we are pleased with the positive feedback received from growers and machinery dealers. Croplands release of the Pegasus 8000 boomsprayer in 2010 has been a standout accomplishment. Our engineers and technical experts worked with feedback from machinery dealers and growers to develop what we believe to be the best designed broadacre sprayer on the market. It exemplifies our commitment to solving application issues faced by agricultural producers and demonstrates our focus on performance, quality and value.

We continue to enhance and develop new technologies by working closely with the very best suppliers around the globe to deliver these to our market. We understand the importance of product support and have built an extensive dealer network across Australia and New Zealand to provide attentive customer service ensuring spare parts and quality service are never far away. I would like to personally thank our customers for choosing Croplands, some who have purchased numerous sprayers from us over the years. We appreciate the support and trust you have placed in us as a key partner in your business. We will continue to focus on delivering the very best products to support your needs. For those considering a new Croplands sprayer, we trust that you will find this guide helpful in making your decision and encourage you to contact a Croplands sales representative for more information.

weedit

Take control with up to 80% chemical savings for farmers using WEEDit selective control technology on pre-emergent regimes in fallow paddocks.

NEW PWM nozzles fitted as standard, providing both blanket and spot spraying from one line. »» Operates using near infrared camera sensors to detect green leaves of weeds in fallow paddocks »» These sensors activate solenoids, controlling the release of chemical from the nozzles to the target »» Camera units are spaced 1 metre apart, reducing weight on the boom and improving effective operation driving speeds »» WEEDit will become an increasingly important application solution for the management of resistant weeds requiring specialised chemistry

24

SUPERIOR MODE OF DETECTION

SENSOR AND NOZZLE PLACEMENT

WEEDit’s red light technology only detects the chlorophyll present in living plants sending a quick response to the nozzles which release the spray onto the weed. This superior mode of detection allows for faster travel speeds and the ability to target even smaller weeds. WEEDit improves at night because there is less interference from sunlight and weeds are often less stressed meaning the reaction to chlorophyll is greater. Unlike other makes of weed detection equipment, the WEEDit system also utilises a speed sensor to increase or decrease the reaction time of the nozzles, meaning a more accurate and efficient job across the paddock.

WEEDit sensors are placed every 1 metre across the boom and control 5 nozzles (individually) on 20cm spacings. Benefits from this design are less weight due to less sensors being required, and a smaller spray footprint when a weed is sprayed. This set-up provides greater savings on chemical compared to other makes of weed detection equipment available in the market. The nozzle spacing of 20cm also allows for a narrower angle nozzle to be used with the benefit of reducing spray drift.

BACKGROUND CALIBRATION Changes in background conditions is a significant issue for other makes of weed detection equipment, mainly caused by changes in soil type and stubble. The WEEDit is inherently less sensitive to changes in background conditions because it is only measuring chlorophyll, and background calibration happens automatically For the operator this means less downtime and ultimate performance across the entire paddock.

ENHANCED ELECTRICAL SYSTEM Any weed detection system places large demands on electrical supplies. The WEEDit overcomes this issue by running at 48 volts. This not only gives superior solenoid operation but current draw is 4 times less than other weed detection equipment using 12 volt systems. Faster solenoid operation also means quicker spraying speeds in the paddock.

SUPERIOR PRODUCTIVITY The WEEDit system provides high speed operation of up to 25 km/h which is up to 10 km/h faster than other weed detection units in the marketplace. High speed operation gives you greater productivity and better utilisation of your investment.

Nozzles and application tools Low Pressure Air-Induction Nozzles

Spraywise Broadacre Application Handbook The Spraywise Broadacre Application Handbook guides the reader through the complex process of spray application. It deals with how to choose and use the right nozzle for specific applications, boom set-up, unfavourable weather conditions and many more essential topics. It enables growers to make informed decisions about how to increase their operational flexibility without losing efficacy.

Low pressure air-induction nozzles are the most popular nozzle type in Australia. They achieve a 80–90% drift reduction while operating best between only 3–5 bar. Generally they produce a COARSE spray quality but with higher pressures a MEDIUM spray quality can also be achieved. That makes them to excellent all rounder nozzles. Until recently this type of nozzle was only produced in poly material. However, the ALBUZ CVI opens up the option to upgrade to durable pink ceramic in this class. NOZZLE

High pressure air-induction nozzles work best in the range of 4–8 bar and must be operated above 3 bar. Compared to low-pressure air-induction nozzles they decrease the amount of driftable fines even further to 90–95%. At speeds of 25 km/h and above they provide more flexibility in retaining a constant spray quality at varying speeds. The orifice material is generally made out of steel or even more durable ceramic.

Pre-orifice flat fan nozzles Compared to conventional nozzles, preorifice nozzles move the spray quality generally from a FINE to a MEDIUM spectrum and reduce the amount of driftable fines by 50%. Instead of a single orifice they have an entry and an exit orifice. Cleaning of the internal chamber can be a problem. Pressure requirements are 2–4 bar. While they are a better option than conventional nozzles, they still produce a lot of driftable fines, especially when used at higher pressures.

Conventional nozzles Conventional nozzles are the simplest and cheapest design of nozzle with a single orifice only. They produce a FINE spray quality. The main advantage of conventional nozzles is their low pressure requirement (1.5–3 bar) and their proven performance with insecticides and fungicides. However, they are also the main producers of driftable fines and should be avoided.

Nozzles for EXTREMELY COARSE Spray Quality In some instances avoiding drift is paramount. The amount of driftable fines must be greatly reduced or almost eliminated. Few nozzles are designed for this purpose. They will produce great efficacy with translocated products (eg. 2,4-D or glyphosate) on large targets. In these situations these nozzles can be used with confidence. On smaller targets, especially with low water volumes, efficacy is still questionable and current advice remains to use them only if drift control is paramount over efficacy.

EFFECTIVE AUGUST 2013

RoGator® WORLD LEADERS IN BROADACRE APPLICATION RoGator sprayers provide state-ofthe-art cab technology, heavy duty construction teamed with proven systems for maximum productivity. These humbling machines are designed with appropriate power, performance and capacity to optimise efficiency.

PRECISE, EFFECTIVE AND RELIABLE Like the RG1300 series, the RG900 and RG1100 models are built specifically for one job, and one job only – the precise application of crop protection products and inputs. Design features such as the C-channel frame to absorb shocks and to flex in response to dips, bumps and field contours set the RoGator apart.

BEST BOOM IN THE BUSINESS A centre-pivot self-levelling mounting ensures the RoGator boom stays at the correct height above the crop, even as the terrain changes. Boom stability while cornering is a feature of the RoGator boom, and a must to provide complete operator confidence during long hours on the job.
