Effective Vineyard Spraying with Dr Andrew Landers

Presented by Bayer CropScience

Vineyard Team is collaborating with Bayer CropScience to bring Dr. Andrew Landers of Cornell University, author of the book Effective Vineyard Spraying for a series of in-depth training courses on better spray application techniques. This workshop will be split between the field and classroom to best demonstrate spraying techniques and technologies that will improve spray deposition, reduce off-target drift, help reduce pesticide use, and show you how to modernize your existing sprayer.

John Roncoroni will talk about herbicide sprayers and Larry Betiga will talk about common problems seen in the field related to poor sprayer calibration.

Objectives of this workshop are:

    Improve your knowledge of spraying techniques leading to better deposition and less drift
