Coniferous and Christmas trees

Christmas trees can be heavily impacted by different pests and infections. Effective and efficient crop protection technology is essential in order to facilitate the growth of healthy and impressive-looking Christmas trees. Pesticides protect coniferous trees from fungal infections, such as mould on the needles and branches, browning needles and pucciniastrum epilobii, as well as from pests including silver fir woolly adelgids, rust mites and the large brown weevil. High-performance VICAR turbines make it possible to comprehensively cover coniferous trees with pesticide. In order to ensure that the trees can withstand the threat of infection, the pesticide must fully penetrate the needles so they are fully and evenly covered. VICAR radial blowers are equal to this task thanks to the high air speed that they achieve with a lower volume of air compared to other types of blowers. The air, which serves to transport the pesticide, can thus be better directed and positioned to achieve an efficient, sparing application with minimum drift.
