“The spray head technology was critical in our decision making process.

With our climate and associated pests and diseases, we needed to ensure that the entire tree, including the very top of our 6.5 to 7 metre trees, could receive chemical application in the most efficient and cost effective way,” explains Alvise.

“Green Tech’s tall tree sprayer with its unique design and electrical fan motors produces high air volume that is extremely effective in applying chemicals to my trees and crop.

The power requirement to operate the fans is so low that I was also able to save on diesel fuel expenditure, while not having to worry about any potential hydraulic oil contamination to my crop. It was a good business decision.”

Neil Delroy of Jasper Farms Busselton WA, is Western Australia’s largest avocado

operation producing more than one million trays per year. Over the years, Jaspers Farms has purchased several GreenTech spray systems for applying fungicides to tall avocado trees.

“The GreenTech spray system is the best on the market as it produces very high volume and medium velocity of air and supports extended adjustable arms giving it the capacity to reach the top of tall trees,” Mr Delroy said.

Benz quotes that one prominent horticulture manager said, “If your crop protection technology is not applying the chemical efficiently and accurately you are wasting money on expensive chemical, diesel fuel, labour and tractor and machinery hours!”

“We must develop, manufacture, and deliver solutions that we know are of the highest quality. This must always be the guiding principle of our business. We will continue to build an even stronger brand and reputation, and as a consequence continue to be the preferred choice in the market.”
