We need land to grow food, healthy soils to nourish crops and livestock, clean water on farms and farmers to make it all happen. Every farmer and contractor has its own daily challenge to achieve the highest possible return at the lowest cost. On a more global level, we know there is sufficient capacity to produce enough food to feed everyone adequately, despite the fact that the world population is predicted to increase to 9 billion by 2050. Instead of cultivating more and more land, we should be able to increase food productivity on existing farmland while at the same time lowering our footprint.
That’s exactly the business that Agrifac is in! We want to contribute to the higher food need in a sustainable, brilliant simple way.
We can increase yield on less productive farm land where we see huge yield gaps between current production levels and those possible with improved production practices, mechanization and precision farming. Combined with for instance our innovative sprayers being able to achieve more yield with less crop protection, to provide each plant what it needs, our business contributes to a brilliant simple solution in helping farmers to feed the world in a sustainable manner.
To be able to do so, each Agrifac machine and application is developed in accordance to the “4e for growers” concept. This means we take efficiency, economy, ergonomics and ecology into account and let them be decisive in all we produce. This enables us to meet and exceed the customers’ needs, leading to a global innovative and technological advantage.
At Agrifac we are available for our customers. No matter where you are, we will support you on a local level according to our “Global presence, local support” principle.
Round, stable and sturdy for wider work widths and a long life
Capacity and quality for spraying is becoming more and more important due to the ever shortening window of opportunity and higher quality requirements for crop care. Wider boom widths and higher work speeds with a stable boom are essential in this. Agrifac has developed the J-boom for this, specially for self-propelled sprayers. The robust round profile forms the basis of the Agrifac J-boom. Quality and stability are the characteristics of this torsionally rigid construction which was developed specially for a long life even at high working speeds.
The J-type spray boom is characterized by a compact and modular construction. The self-propelled sprayer remains particularly compact in length as well as width. Unique and ideal for good overall visibility, safe road transport and easy to manoeuvre, even on small paths. The J-type offers you numerous benefits. You will still profit from the standard variable geometry (independently lifting booms), a stable, gas spring controlled break away protection and, from beginning to end, complete nozzle protection. Through the modular construction, the spray boom is easy to expand or adjust with options such as HighTechAirPlus. The J-type spray boom has been specially developed for a long life. Each spray boom has the same base, developed for boom widths up to 51 metres!
Highest air yield, best penetration
For crops in which air support is essential to bring the liquids to the right place, Agrifac introduces the new AirFlowPlus air support system. This system sets itself apart by the cleverly engineered construction with a ventilator every three metres. This creates an air yield not previously seen, and an absolutely uniform air distribution over the total width of the spray boom. Regardless of the work area width and the number of boom sections you are working with! Wear and tear of air sacks is all in the past.
The direction of the liquids and air stream is very easy to adjust to the conditions and the wind direction. You can adjust the angle of the entire spray boom forward or backward so that the air shaft and the outflow opening do not twist in relation to each other. Agrifac AirFlowPlus is equipped with complete circulation as standard.
