Easier sprayer cleaning

SPRAYER cleaning should be less of a chore thanks to a new multi-detergent-based product which is now available from Newman Agrochemicals.

Caked on residues

Tank and Equipment Cleaner can remove caked-on residues from tanks, spray lines and external surfaces, claims the company. It also neutralises many hormone herbicides, reducing the risk to susceptible crops.

For routine cleaning, the product is used at 1g/litre of water and three times that for more stubborn deposits.

Cost is £8-£9 for a 500g pack, £70 for a 7kg one, from distributors nationwide.
