AgNext Technologies, a leading global agritech company, has introduced E-Spray, an electrostatic-based pesticide sprayer for 360° crop coverage, zero pesticide wastage or excessive pesticide dripping. E-spray disperses electrostatically charged atomized liquid spray in a way that attracts and coils to the leaf or crop itself, while also recording the user’s geolocation.
The e-spray contains an IoT device that allows users to track spraying activity in real time, allowing a farmer to monitor the entire activity such as movement of spraying person with GPS location on map, Sprayed Area, Chemical Consumption, start & end time of spraying etc, and prevent malpractices. These sprays come in a variety of capacities and can be easily transported from one location to another, reducing soil toxicity and water contamination. This e-spray by Agnext helps in limiting the presence of pesticides in the crop and maintaining it to an optimum level.
Taranjeet Singh Bhamra, Founder & CEO, AgNext Technologies, said ″E-spray is a breakthrough technology developed by Agnext. It is an electrostatic sprayer designed in a way so as to give the maximum benefit to the farmers. We are working towards developing and deploying more such technology in rural areas that will change the lives of farmers as well as the whole agriculture landscape″.
In addition to being advantageous for farmers and consumers, it also aids ″Sprayer″ because charged particles don’t enter the sprayer’s respiratory system, preventing long-term lung diseases.
