Stress-free, cost effective and efficient
Heli-Central operate two helicopters to support the sugar cane industry from Proserpine to Camilla. During the summer season, these helicopters spray over 6,000 hectares of sugar cane and grazing country as well as applying fertiliser and seeding.
Most recently, Heli-Central has improved their aerial rural ag operation by upgrading equipment to ensure spraying and spreading is more efficient, economical and safe for farmers.
Heli-Central’s Isuzu truck is fitted out with a custom spray loading crate to ensure the efficiency and safety of chemical loading and handling.
The use of Accu-Flow nozzles significantly reduce the risk of drift spray by producing a more uniform droplet with less than 2% of the spray droplet forming fine spray. This means a more accurate, wider spray which is less affected by wind drift.
The HeliSpread fertilizer spreader (Red 1 Fabrication) has improved the accuracy and efficiency of aerial fertilizer spreading. The state of art aerial spreader produces an even 40m spread, this is double the area of conventional older aerial spreaders, meaning we have the ability to apply product at rates as low as 3Kg per hectare or up to 700Kg per hectare in one pass, in conjunction with GPS precise guidance in the helicopter our pilots and clients can be sure of the end result of coverage.
