Asparagus Disease Management and Spray Coverage Workshop

Growers spend a lot of time, money and effort to apply pesticides, but are they getting the coverage they need?

Sprayer travel speed, pressure, spray volume, nozzle type and spray distribution over the boom are all under the control of the spray operator.  When these parameters are not adjusted to match the crop staging, environmental conditions and the nature of the pest, spray applications can be compromised. That can result in wasted product (such as drift or run-off), poor spray coverage and poor pest control.

Come to the Disease Management and Spray Coverage Workshop on August 9th, 2012.  Learn what good coverage looks like and explore simple methods to improve your spray application.
