Hopper-gate baffel for improved metering of pellets from aircraft

Hopper-gate baffel for improved metering of pellets from aircraft

Proceedings of the 31st Annual Meeting of the Southern Weed Science Society: 317

A brief illustrated description is given of a simple, low cost hopper baffel which effectively improves the metering of pellets from aircraft. The baffel features nine slots which match the nine openings in a standard aircraft sprayer.
