The Ecoter organic farm, in Sant’Alberto in Ravenna (Romagna Region), uses the Martignani Whirlwind M612 Turbo 2 Electrostatic Sprayer with a specific lower diffuser (named Gib-Dor) to combat the Brown Spot. Twice a year, in spring and autumn, ground interventions are carried out, based on lactic ferments and other herbs.
With this innovative and BIOLOGICAL system, they distribute lactobacilli, which are also effective in treatments against apple scab and in peach trees, as well as for treatments against monilia, as these living microorganisms fight and destroy fungus.
One of Ecoter’s managers, Mr. Fabiano Cornacchia, explains that one of the main advantages of using the Martignani Electrostatic Sprayers for this type of treatment is the low pressure. “It would not be possible to use a conventional sprayer to perform these BIOLOGICAL treatments, because the high pressure would cause the mortality of the microorganisms we use to combat the Brown Spot fungus”. Cornacchia also states that “Martignani Electrostatic Sprayers by means of the specific Gib-Dor diffuser distribute the product very well in the ground and then, this product penetrates more and more thanks to humidity and air, too. For us it is a very effective, non-aggressive technique, and we are very satisfied.”
As a matter of fact, the Ecoter Farm has 4 Martignani sprayers because “they are machines that amazed me, both for their simplicity in use and maintenance, and for their precise and uniform coverage“.
