Making Every Drop(let) Count – An International Perspective on Spraying Efficiencies

In this webinar, WeedSmart southern extension agronomist Chris Davey and Canadian spray technology expert Tom Wolf discuss efficient and effective spray application.

Chris and Tom focused on:

  • More efficient spraying application – getting more of the chemical to the desired target weed; and
  • Becoming more efficient at keeping the boomspray in the paddock, rather than at the filling point.

Topics covered include:

  • Differences in labels and restrictions in Canada vs Australia
  • Practical tips to keep the boomspray in the paddock
  • How best to get the chemical to the target (broadleaf vs grassy weeds)
  • How often should growers calibrate their boomsprays?
  • Spray plans
