Aerial spraying investigations at Bundaberg


, : Aerial spraying investigations at Bundaberg. Cane Grow. Quart. Bull, 26: 3, 81-3

Trials are in progress at Bundaberg to determine (1) the effect of altitude and angle of the jets on the size of droplets emitted from the spray boom of an aircraft and (2) the penetration of droplets of known size through a sugar-cane canopy.

Anonymous, 1972: 1971-72 Aerial Spraying Programme. Interim report (June 1972). A report containing preliminary data and economic analysis of the 1971-72 Aerial Spraying Programme and time comparisons with the previous two aerial spraying seasons. This interim report was intended primarily for use within the Project and by outside bodies concerned with Project decision-making; the final report, published in September 1972, gives more background information. The season analyzed is the third...

Anonymous, 1972: Aerial spraying attitude survey (June 1972). A report of an investigation carried out to assess farmers' attitudes towards the Aerial Spraying Programme. Farmers interviewed seemed in general to be in favour of the aerial spraying programme, although criticism was expressed at the price charged per acre. The greatest advantage suggested seemed to be increased freedom in terms of time, decision-maki...

Pereira, J.L., 1968: Aerial spraying. Report on test carried out on aerial spraying at Tatu Estate, July 1968. In a spray efficiency test with a fixed-wing aircraft, the 1 and 2 gal/acre applications were not satisfactory, but at 4 gal a 44-67% spray cover was achieved, though not generally on both top and under surfaces of branches.
