Spray tech kits

Magnetic Assist Technology that improves your spray.

Croplands has partnered with MagrowTec to bring magnetic spray assist technology to the Australian and New Zealand markets. MagrowTec is manufactured in state of the art facilities in Ireland. The technology is designed to retrofit on any boomspray regardless of make or model.

MagrowTec technology uses permanent rare earth magnets to expose crop protection fluid to static non-uniform magnetic fields under appropriate flow conditions. This has the impact of affecting the physical properties of the fluid that determine MagrowTec’s characteristic spray droplet formation, droplet dynamics, and droplet adhesion. Critically, MagrowTec technology allows growers to use much smaller droplets without the drift and waste normally associated when using these smaller nozzles.

We cut the drift 50-60%, increased coverage and increased the productivity of my spraying practices.

Stara Imperador - distinctive look
Stara Imperador with BLUE BEAM for greater efficiency in nighttime applications

innovation, evolution, and insightful solutions

With Stara’s distinctive look and styling, the Stara Imperador 4000 Series self-propelled sprayers stand out due to their high application precision ensured by central booms.

In addition to technologies such as the Continuous Recirculating System, Nozzle-by-Nozzle Control System, Twin Row Spraying System, and Smart 4-Wheel-Steering System guarantee higher accuracy and significant savings.

Imperador 4000 are equipped with an Up & Down – Hydraulic Lift System, a feature that allows for the highest application height – 3 meters, and the highest ground clearance on the market – 2 meters.

General Features



The Imperador line is the only one in the world with central booms. It ensures more stability during applications and guarantees 58% more of the chemical solution on target*. The total boom length is 30m or 36m.


Cummins electronic engine 6.7-295 cv with a turbocharger. In addition to providing considerable savings and longer life, the engine emits low pollutants, causes fewer vibrations, and generates lower noise.

Blue Beam System*

This lighting allows wide visibility during nighttime applications.

* Optimal feature.

Continuous Recirculating System*

This exclusive system keeps the chemical solution constantly moving inside the tank and piping system. What it provides:
Homogeneity and the exact chemical concentration during applications;
Cleaner spraying system, without residues from previous applications;
Longer components durability.

*Nozzle-by-Nozzle Control System feature

Optimised Hydraulic System

It identifies the amount of oil required to carry out different operations, especially the spray pump flow. It provides gains of an average of 8 cv. The fuel economy is up to 2.5%.

Mechanical Solution Mixer

In addition to the hydraulic solution agitator, the machine is also equipped with a propeller, which guarantees better solution homogeneity for high-quality applications.

Automatic Section Control

Shuts off the spray nozzle automatically when the Topper 5500 controller identifies an area where the chemical has already been applied, preventing overlap and ensuring savings on chemicals.

*Optional feature.

Nozzle by Nozzle Control System

Stara Smart Transmission System

With a Rexroth hydro-electronic transmission 4×4, information is displayed on Topper 5500, and diagnostics of components is in real-time.

Ground Clearance

The Imperador 4000 has an impressive 1.6m of standard clearance and an option of 2.0m

Rigid Chassis
