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.

The objectives of this workshop are to:

  • Improve your knowledge of spraying techniquesleading to better deposition and less drift
  • Improve your timeliness of applicationresulting in better disease and insect control
  • Reduce off-target driftkeeping you within the law
  • Show you how to modernize your existing sprayer
  • Inform you of new developments in sprayer design keeping you up-to-date
