greenPRO at Equitana
For the first time greenPRO attended the 20th anniversary of Equitana held at the Melbourne Showgrounds 15-18th November. This special event is considered one of the largest Equestrian events in Australia and only comes around every two years.
Equitana brings together so many disciplines with riders, competitors and enthusiasts from all over the country travelling to this equestrian spectacular. They come to see the lastest in technology and equipment, tack, fashion trends plus demonstrations from some of Australia’s finest professionals in their chosen field who hope to inspire and encourage others with everything that is equestrian.
Our Territory Manager Brett and Agronomist Nick were excited to be there introducing our Award winning GPI-100 Solar Travelling Irrigator and Manure Vac plus our latest products including BioWeed Organic Herbicide.
The attendance this year was huge and the guys were certainly kept busy! The GP-100 Solar Travelling Irrigator was definitely a highlight for those who have never seen our greenPRO range before.
With so many unique features and smart technology everyone was impressed with the Automatic Shut off system. This allows you to set and forget the irrigator saving you time and allows you to continue working on other jobs or run it at night to conserve water without evaporation. It can operate using water pressure as low as 20psi which other irrigators can’t do. Plus it can harness the sun to charge the battery, which turns the hose reel and retracts the sprinkler. So you will never require a powerpoint again!
Not to be left behind, our 400L Manure Vac was also very popular. All horse lovers need this to help maintain their paddocks free of parasites for the health and wellbeing of their animals, but what makes ours the best, is the design. The Manure Vac easily slides into the Electic Tipper Trailer which has a 45 degree angle allowing it to tip out the contents of the compartment in under 4 seconds! The Tipper does all the work so you don’t have to, saving you back breaking work.
Nick our resident Agronomist was kept busy answering questions about our latest addition to the greenPRO range, BioWeed Organic Herbicide. A new generation weed killer that offers a host of benefits which is sustainable and non-systemic but rather works by stripping the outer coating of the contacted plant and seed material, causing the cell to collapse and desiccate. BioWeed is wholly plant derived with active ingredients sourced from 92% Pine Tree oil which will not harm the PH level of the soil microbia and is non-toxic for animals or food crops so there is no withholding period.
BioWeed controls thousands of weed species including glyphosate tolerant and resistant weeds.
Both Brett and Nick were pleased to meet with so many of our existing customers and new clients to be able to showcase our fantastic range of products and introduce the latest from greenPRO. With the feedback received we look forward to attending the next Equitana! Until next time.
