CHeCKS key PoinTs Always start with a clean machine... Use the self-test or test speed function to check the machine for leaks, restrictions and uniform output... By entering the desired L/ha and test speed, the operator allows the machine to operate at the simulated speed while the machine is stationary in 'manual' or 'auto' mode (some machines that utilise the GPS for determining travel speed may need to switch off the mapping capabilities to be able to use the simulated speed function)...

Manage speed to eliminate spray drift.. A Canadian study showed that, during higher wind speeds of about 20 kilometres per hour, machinery travelling at about 30km/h almost doubled the amount of chemical contributing to spray drift risk, compared with machinery travel speeds of 8km/h... Spray operators are advised to avoid travel speeds above 16 to 18km/h during higher wind speeds unless there is excellent boom height control and equipment is set up to minimise airborne droplets by providing spray quality which is coarse or larger...

PrACTICAL TIPS TO rEDUCE SPrAy DrIfT.. Use the coarsest spray quality that will provide efficacy... If considering spraying at night, be Consider using auto-height control, suitable Other studies have shown that at night aware many product labels state: "DO the airborne fraction can be up to 5 times touch-down wheels, or lower travel speeds NOT spray under surface temperature greater than that occurring during the day to improve boom stability and to assist with inversion conditions", which have been minimising boom height...
