Custom-made spray robot for strawberries at Steenks Service

Growers within the cultivation of strawberries are looking for ways to optimize their labor. One of these ways is automatic crop treatment. For this reason, strawberry growers choose for an automatic spraying robot that is capable of spraying multiple paths at the same time.

A Meto spray robot improves the quality of spraying, saves working hours, crop products and it’s better for your health, because you don’t have to touch the crops. Sander Zuidgeest from Steenks Service: “We offer the opportunity to build a custom made spray mast to spray multiple paths at the same time. Furthermore, nozzles on the spray mast can be directed forwards and sideways to spray the façade of the greenhouse as well”.

Meto spray robot + trans at T’ Aardbeihofke in Ravels
At T’ Aardbeihofke drives a Meto spray robot in combination with a Meto transport unit. The transport unit ensures that the spray robot automatically moves to the next path. The combination of a robot and transport unit leads to a fully automatic process of crop treatment. Jos Rens of T’Aardbeihofke is enthusiastic about the machine: “ I can focus myself, during the spraying, on other work which saves a lot of time”. Furthermore, the spray robot can spray 7 paths at the same time. In this case this is equal to a width of 8 meters. Therefore a spray arm of galvanized steel with 7 spray masts has been used. The machine can be stored easily with a foldable spray arm.
