North Waikato Services
Delivering precise liquid application:
Spray-out for cultivation work
Pre and post-emergence weed control
Pesticide and herbicide application
Liquid fertilizer application
Soil conditioners and pasture boosters
Our specifically built Toyota Landcruiser boom spraying unit has a computerised application rate controller so that the exact amount of agrichemical is applied given the groundspeed of the vehicle. The computer also calculates total area covered and the GPS guideance system ensures the operator will not overlap the application. Utilising the 15 meter boom width minimises pasture or crop damage.
For targeted weed control:
And all other invasive weeds
Both our Landcruiser and tractor have two hose reels, each with 100 meters of hose. Therefore, we can offer two agrichemical applicators per spray unit, which means we can cover more ground faster...which saves you money.
We utilise high pressure pumps for gun spraying to give excellent weed coverage and penetration.
We also have available two trailer units set up for gun spraying. These units are motorised and also feature high pressure spray pumps. Both units are ideally suited for use behind an ATV.
Efficient maintenance of drains:
It is important to keep drains clean of vegetation to ensure they operate effectively and allow water to flow.
Our uniquely designed drain spraying boom is hydraulically operated from a tractor to provide an efficient and extremely effective drain spraying service, which we offer to farmers and councils.
The tractor can easily navigate over rough terrain to access the drains. However, gun spraying can be done in those areas our tractor cannot get to. We have even sprayed from the waterways by putting one of our spray units onboard a commercial boat.
Cut & Paste / Frilling
Targetted control of pest plants:
Controlling pest plants that are located in sensitive areas such as native bush, riparian strips, commercial or residential areas.
Cut and paste is a favourable method of controlling pest plants, such as Old Man's Beard, where the plant can be cut at ground level and then herbicide is applied to the stump.
Frilling is commonly used for controlling pest plants, such as Woolley Nighshad. An ax is used to make cuts around the circumference of the trunk for the herbicide to be inserted.
Protect and beautify your waterways:
Riparian planting is an effective method of protecting waterways from potential contamination and assists with beautifying the landscape.
Our riparian planting service includes spraying out for plant placement, planting and future maintenance.
Native plants are an ideal choice to enhance the appearance of industrial and commercial sites.
Industrial Vegetation Control
Being compliant without the risk:
We can provide businesses with a risk free and fully compliant solution for total vegetation control and maintenance by incorporating weed spraying of industrial sites, garden maintenance and lawn mowing.
With current health & safety and resource management legislation it is vital that businesses comply with the strict regulations governing chemical storage, use and application within the workplace. This is where we can help.
Geoff Patterson began spraying in 1971 as an enthusiastic 21 year old for a Waverley based agricultural spraying business. An overabundance of work opportunities and always impatient to get ahead, it was no time before Geoff purchased a Toyota Landcruiser, affectionately nicknamed 'Humpdy', and began working for himself.
45 years later, the Agman brand now represents Geoff's wealth of experience within the agricultural and horticultural spraying industries. Branches have been established in North Waikato and Taranaki, which provide a complete range of agricultural spraying and associated services.
