Ecorobotix “Ara” bar, zero agrochemical drift

Among the most stringent limitations on agrochemicals are the so-called “buffer zones,” which are the minimum distances that must be respected during field application with regard to watercourses, roads, or nearby residences. This distance ranges from five to thirty meters depending on the product being distributed, thereby reducing important areas available for treatment, including herbicides. However, technology can intervene to make these limitations unnecessary by applying phytosanitary products only where needed and without generating drifts that could reach sensitive areas. Ecorobotix “Ara” Bar from the Swiss Company In this regard,…
