Electrostatic Sprayers for Pollen

Electrostatic Sprayers for Pollen Applications

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. 

OnTarget’s cutting-edge electrostatic nozzle technology represents a significant advancement in the field of pollen application. This technology functions by generating atomized and charged spray droplets that effectively encapsulate the pollen grains suspended in Dr. Whiting’s specialized mix. Additionally, the air velocity produced by OnTarget’s sprayers is intentionally slow, allowing the droplets to linger within the canopy of trees or plants.

The key to the success of this approach lies in the electrostatic charge. This charge causes the pollen-laden droplets to repel each other, preventing them from clumping together. Simultaneously, the flower stigmas, which are electrically neutral, statically attract these charged droplets. As a result, the droplets adhere to the stigmas until the electrical charge dissipates, and the water within the droplets evaporates. This process leaves behind a consistent and even coating of pollen on the targeted plant parts.

Importantly, OnTarget’s electrostatic manifolds have demonstrated exceptional durability and reliability in the agricultural setting over more than a decade of use. By effectively applying the spray to the plant and ensuring it remains in place, this technology stands out as the most efficient and environmentally friendly sprayer available in the market.
