Potato Harvester Mister

Reduce bruising during harvesting with this versatile wetting kit

Suitable for most potato and root crop harvesting equipment

Benefits of Mist Spraying

Bruising costs the potato industry dearly every year, so effective strategies to maintain potato quality are very important.

Mist spraying has been shown to reduce bruising during the harvesting operation, particularly in dry conditions when dolmen rollers tend to cause potatoes to bounce.

The fine mist spray from the nozzles dampens both the potatoes and the rollers in the harvester. This lubricates the passage of the potatoes over the top of the rollers and helps to prevent them being pinched and damaged.
