An efficient chemical spray system for treating small experimental field plots

Journal of the Georgia Entomological Society 19(4): 433-437

An efficient chemical spray system for treating small experimental field plots

A compared air spray system was more accurate, efficient and less cumbersome in spraying small (0.02-0.04 ha) replicated field plots of soybeans than a conventional sprayer. There was also less waste of chemicals and time between treatments when changing from one chemical to another.
