OnTarget’s patented Wraparound Technology™ pairs perfectly with the V-trellis designs that growers have incorporated in recent years, and is an excellent ﬁt in central leader and other production systems. OnTarget designers worked with apple industry leaders to design an optimized V-trellis system that is ﬂexible and reliable, with external spray manifolds made of heavy duty polymer tubes to protect the internal electrostatic manifold from sun, chemicals, water and physical abuse. OnTarget sprayers allow farmers to target spraying to any of three distinct zones, enabling you to protect the tops of trees from sun damage, get the most from your plant growth regulators, and optimize spray performance against plant diseases and insects.
With sustainable, smart engineering, OnTarget offers far-reaching efficiencies, leaving consuming every ounce of water and product. Using 50 to 80 percent less water, 50 percent less horsepower and diesel, and 50 percent fewer spray hours, OnTarget’s apple orchard sprayers covers up to 4 times more acreage per day compared to the leading air-blast sprayer. This results in the need for fewer sprayers and operators.
For example, if a farmer wants to spray only the treetop, they simply turn off the lower spray tubes. This comes in handy when spraying some plant growth regulators. However, in many cases, spraying from the top down produces positive results while minimizing drift. Sunburn protection products should be applied from the top down, while pollen can be applied with a refined liquid suspension pollen mix from all levels.
These sprayers are designed to use 50% to 80% less water, so you spend more time spraying and less time filling the tank. On Target sprayers require 50% less horsepower than conventional air blast sprayers, which adds up to substantial fuel savings. No need to waste your spray or your time.
