No-mess liquid pesticide on the grain

GRAIN pesticides in powder form are not the cleanest of substances to apply. A point not lost on Perry of Oakley, which now has an applicator designed to apply liquid Actellic D to grain as it is going into store.

Pesticide – premixed in a separate tank – is applied via a 204 litre/min pump and delivery jets. The latter are protected inside a galvanised steel channel which forms part of a universal clamp, allowing attachment to most conveyors and ducts, says the company.

Specification includes dual stage filtration, 13m of suction and delivery hose, flow meter and pressure control valve.

Prices: 12V £750; 240V £900 (01404-891400).
