Some 50 of the latest sprayers on the market will by put through their paces in the Syngenta Sprays and Sprayers arena at Cereals 2016.

Demonstrators will include self-propelled sprayers, mounted sprayers, trailed sprayers, air assisted and twin fluid sprayers – making the arena one of the best places to see the most up-to-date application technology in action.

Horsch’s new entry-level trailed sprayers, Leeb LT, are aimed at smaller farming operations. The machines will be on show at the brand’s sprayer plot at Cereals, said Horsch UK general manager Stephen Burcham.

“As farmers ourselves, we understand our customers’ challenges,” Mr Burcham explained. “The Leeb LT brings our spraying expertise to new farmers who do not need the larger capacity Leeb GS machines.”

The Leeb LT trailed sprayers expand the company’s sprayer line-up, featuring 4,000 and 5,000 litre capacities with plastic tanks. All Leeb LT models will feature BoomControl, the award-winning system that keeps the boom highly stable even when driving fast on uneven terrain.

Three specification levels are available with the entry-level ECO model equipped with a piston diaphragm pump with manual operated valves for suction and pressure side. Above this is the CCS model, which features the automatic internal Continuous Cleaning System.

The CCS Pro model is equipped with a modern electronic system at the suction and pressure side similar to the premium equipment level of the Leeb GS spraying technology. All models have a 500 litre fresh water tank.

Leeb LT Boom widths range between 18m and 42m, with the new larger boom widths up to 42m also available for the Leeb GS. The ISOBUS operating concept is an in-house development and incorporates innovative functions that ease adjustment, operation and control of the machine.

Nozzle switching can be easily controlled with combinations of 1-0 (nozzle per 50cm) to 4-2 (4 nozzles per 50cm plus 2 nozzles per 25cm). When combined with BoomControl’s target area height of 30 cm, this significantly reduces drift and improves plant wetting.

The optional steering axle uses its own gyroscope removing the need for cable or mechanical connection to the tractor. Only the hydraulic system, road lights and ISOBUS plug is now required.
