In 2020 Washington State University researcher Matthew Whiting published a report that compared the effect of gibberellic application with an airblast sprayer vs. OnTarget Wraparound Technology™ on sweet cherry fruit quality. The key results showed that the rows treated with OnTarget sprayers had consistently better size and color. Sunburn protection products can be successfully applied from the top down, and pollen can be applied with a refined liquid suspension pollen mix.
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 cherry 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.
These sprayers are designed to use 50% to 80% less water, so you spend more time spraying and less time filling the tank. OnTarget sprayers require 50% less horsepower than conventional air blast sprayers, which adds up to substantial fuel savings.
OnTarget’s electrostatic spray manifolds were designed to be reliable and ﬂexible. Position the spray tube to the ideal height, angle or location of your crop. The heavy duty polymer tube protects the internal manifold from sun, chemicals, water and physical abuse.
Our electrostatic manifolds have endured the rigors of agriculture for more than a decade and proven most reliable. Putting the spray on the plant and keeping it there makes this the most efficient and environmental sprayer on the market.
