Dry Pollen Application
The PollenPlus™ QuadDuster is an evolution in kiwifruit pollen application technology. The QuadDuster delivers a digitally metered supply of pollen across the kiwifruit canopy using high performance air fans and CAD-designed volutes.
AgFirst BOP Ltd carries out the QuadDuster operation under exclusive license.
The QuadDuster bikes have digital speed control units to ensure uniform and consistent application of pollen. The fleet has GPS transponders allowing pollen application to be monitored remotely. GPS maps can be supplied to clients showing pollen application history.
PollenPlus has further improved the QuadDusters digitally metered pollen delivery system.
Subsequent to confirmed order, PollenPlus will text the client confirming pollen application will occur on the following day, and further when the AgFirst operator has began, and finished application.
The PollenPlus™QuadDuster is a supplementary pollen application system designed to dust flowers with pollen, enhancing bee pollen transfer, maximising pollination.
