If you are seriously thinking about purchasing a new sprayer then the National Sprayer Demo is the event to go to.

It takes place on Wednesday 26th February 2020 on a site adjacent to Glebe Farm, Belchford, Horncastle, Lincs, LN9 6LS by kind permission of AW Smith and Sons Limited. Gates open at 8am and the event closes at 4pm.

This unique full working demo day is supported by Agrifac, Amazone, Bargam, Bateman, Chafer, Chantry Dammann, Fendt, Hardi, Househam, Knight Farm Machinery, Kuhn, McConnel, Ripon Farm Services (with John Deere and Mazotti), Sands and Vicon - visitors will be able to see the key manufacturers in one place.

It’s the only opportunity to get hands on and drive the sprayers on the same day, on a farm in real field conditions. The event enables qualified and competent operators to test-drive the machines.

‘The Sprayer Demo continues to be the go-to working demo for growers and operators to experience the machines up close and personal in real working conditions’ Says the Sprayer Demo coordinator, Andy Newbold. ‘The site offers a full range of typical conditions with slopes, banks and level areas to enable a true picture of the sprayers performance to show’

For the first time manufacturers of trailed and mounted sprayers can also take part, allowing the full range of available units to be compared.

This year’s site is in a cover crop of stubble turnips, with 36m tramlines, and includes level areas and steep banks to experience the machines at work.

There is also a supporting exhibition of spraying technology suppliers with all the latest technology to support the sprayers at work.
