The Benefits of Mist Spraying

  • Bruising leads to huge economic costs to the potato industry every year, so effective strategies to reduce waste and 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. This lubricates the movement of the potatoes over the rollers and helps to prevent them being pinched and damaged
