Silsoe Spray Applications Unit Ltd at The CropTec Show
Silsoe Spray Applications Unit Ltd is delighted to be at The CropTec Show this year. SSAU are truly independent experts in application technology – we don’t sell anything to farmers, and for the two days of CropTec our advice will be genuinely free!
The performance of agrochemicals depends on the characteristics of the spray that is used, and how droplets behave on contact with the leaf or target surface. SSAU has many different techniques for evaluating these, used by nozzle manufacturers and the Ag Chem industry.
On our stand, we will be demonstrating how we characterise the sprays produced by different nozzles using laser imaging – see the P15 instrument, made by Oxford Lasers Ltd, in action.
We will also be looking at how formulation affects the way the spray behaves on a leaf surface by showing the spreading of liquid droplets.
Take part in the CropTec knowledge trail and see if you can answer our application questionnaire correctly.
Bring us your application questions too – if you want to know the best way to spray for your situation, we will talk it through with you and help you understand the most important things to get right.
Clare, Andy, Christine, Clive and Rafael are looking forward to meeting you on our stand!
