With a show of strength in the spraying arena from its iXter tractor-mounted sprayer with iXtra front tank combination and the very latest high-tech iXtrack trailed sprayer, Vicon enjoyed positive response to its latest crop care equipment on show at Cereals.
“With precision application technology at the forefront of our range, the Vicon stand remained a bustling platform for business throughout the two-day show,” says Vicon sales manager David Furber.
“Precision farming systems are here to stay and the amount of interest in accuracy and efficiency – through our GEOCONTROL, weigh cell spreaders and sprayers - is a key point picked up by visitors who came to talk tech on our stand,” he adds.
He says that the iXtra front tank was of particular interest to visitors, with many looking for a high-capacity tractor-mounted alternative to a trailed sprayer. The iXtra front tank offers an 1,100 litre capacity giving the potential for 2,900 litres of total capacity when combined with an 1,800 litre/24m iXter tractor-mounted sprayer.
“It is a combination that can make the iXter a productive and more manoeuvrable alternative to any trailed sprayer,” he says. “Customers were left in no doubt that Vicon can help them to become more profitable, and more efficient with crop production.”
“But it wasn’t all business - many farmers took advantage of our hospitality and the chance to sit back and relax with a brew.”
