Reducing spray drift
Air-assisted boom sprayers are developed for a number of reasons. Air-assisted spraying opens the crop canopy, exposes all foliar surfaces, carries small droplets to the target, improving coverage and reducing drift. This extends the spray window by out-competing moderate winds and can improve coverage so much that less spray mix is required per hectare.
The ability to employ a finer spray quality when required, while greatly reducing spray drift and combating inclement weather to extend the spray window are all appealing features. Research has clearly demonstrated that deep-canopy spray coverage and overall efficacy are improved when this system is properly adjusted to match spray conditions.
Agrifac has developed its own air assisted spraying system, AirFlowPlus. As well as this, Agrifac has also developed an air-liquid mixing spraying system, HighTechAirPlus.
