'Liquid granule' applicator
International Pest Control 26(2): 51
A commercially available hand applicator for use with crop and garden chemicals is described. The applicator spray head is mounted on the end of a flexible lance, down which the spray liquid is gravity-fed via a tube from a 4 pint container. The spray head has a number of fine bristle-like projections which fling off a stream of droplets as the lance is swung gently from side to side. A single weed, a narrow strip along a plant row or a broader area may be treated. A uniform coverage rate of 1 litre/100 msuperscript 2 may be achieved.
