Why Coverage and Calibration Matter

Monday Jan 02, 2017 1:05am

Taking the time to ensure that your sprayer is properly calibrated will insure best control of pests and diseases and save time and money. Proper calibration of an airblast sprayer requires that tractor speed, water volume, and nozzle manifold arrangement be coordinated to achieve the best coverage under site-specific operating conditions. Driving too fast is the most common error made in airblast sprayer calibration.
