Spraying is the main method used to apply pesticides to trellised vines in Castilla-La Mancha, Spain. If the efficiency of spray applications is to be improved, the amount of pesticide employed is to be reduced, and the performance of existing and new spray technology enhanced, the leaf coverage achieved must be known and a system developed that can rapidly determine it.
