Spray Application Advice

AGnVET Services Agronomists can assist with on-farm information for specific spray applications. The success of a spray job is dependent on the product chosen, application timing and correct operation of the spray equipment. Nozzles selection, speed and pressure are critical for effective spraying, particularly of insecticides & fungicides.

Droplet distribution is crucial to effective spraying, as seen in the water sensitive paper below.

Remember: ALWAYS READ THE LABEL prior to spraying

Boomspray output (L/Ha) = (Output per nozzle (L/min) x no. Nozzles) x 600

                                            Boom width (m) x speed (km/hr)
