Application Quiz – Up the pressure?

We’ve worked with ICL to develop an Online quiz (link here) to help support you guys and girls out there spraying – in this blog series I intend to go through each question, give you an in depth answer and a few useful links.

What does increasing the spraying pressure achieve?

  • Increases chance of drift
  • Reduces chance of drift
  • Increased penetration of product into the sward
  • Increases the percentage of coarse droplets

By increasing the pressure on a sprayer, we change the ratio of spray droplets towards the finer end of the nozzles capability and reduce the amount of coarse droplets being produced. By creating finer droplets there is less penetration into the sward and more air bound droplets that will miss the intended target completely.
