Kubota Holdings Europe BV, based at Nieuw-Vennep, The Netherlands, has acquired 100 per cent of Spanish sprayer maker Pulverizadores Fede. The company manufactures and distributes air blast sprayers and mist blowers for speciality applications including vineyards, orchards, citrus fruits and vegetables.

By bringing Pulverizadores Fede on-board as a wholly-owned subsidiary and keeping its brand identity, the Kubota Group plans to accelerate the expansion of its business in the speciality crops market. Kubota will also strengthen its compatibility between tractors and equipment, contributing to a reduction in the environmental impact of fruit production through efficient spraying.

Based at Valencia, Spain, Pulverizadores Fede’s strength is in high-end spray application technologies that are already in practical use with equipment such as the company’s Smartomizer H3O.

This high-tech, smart-connected air blast sprayer is able to control spray volumes and airflow in real-time, through the use of sensors to measure the height of trees. With intelligent calibration, this innovation has the potential to reduce fuel consumption by up to 5.0 litres/ha, and reduce drift by more than 45 per cent.
