Highly efficient airblast sprayer design within the project: Healthy crop, Healthy environment, Healthy finances - H3O
Cropland covers almost 25% of the EU (4.4 million km2) and most of that area is subject to phytosanitary treatments. With the EU Horizon 2020 project Healthy crop, Healthy environment, Healthy finances through Optimization (H3O), Pulverizadores Fede will bring a completely new generation of plant protection product application devices (sprayers) to market, with the aim of reducing the amount of product that is released into the environment by 50% and saving 38.5% of diesel. This will result in savings worth €462.5 per hectare annually. Moreover, the project is meeting key requirements of the EU Directive 2009/128/EC on sustainable use of pesticides and is in line with the food chain industry standard GLOBALG.A.P.
