Presentation description:

The objective of spraying is to get an effective dose of product from the sprayer to the target surface as efficiently as possible. So, how do you do that? Where did you get your spraying advice from? How do you know if you hit the target without waiting for pests and disease to tell you? This presentation will discuss the unique circumstances of spraying in a closed environment, explain droplet behaviour (and misbehaviour) and present a few feedback tools to confirm your spray went where you wanted it to.
