Spraying robot for 16 metres bay width


At Hoogeveen Plants in the Netherlands, a new spraying robot has been build exactly for 16 metres bay width. It is the biggest robot for greenhouses that Robur Holland has build.

The spraying robot works in a greenhouse that Hoogeveen Plants is using for the growing of Helleborus in 12 cm pots. Crop manager Henk Oosterom gives a demonstration in the greenhouse, using only water. He shows how the robot is being transported from bay to bay, and how the robot is preventing that pots on the outside of the beds will dehydrate.
