Using the spray plan and test speed to check other functions The spray plan identifies what the total flow rate (L/min) through the boom should be at a given speed, application volume (L/ha), nozzle spacing or section width (m) and pressure... Tank size and increments can be checked by using a calibrated in-fill meter or by weighing the contents using a weigh bridge...

In order to maximise the benefits of fallow sprays, Dow AgroSciences' Rob Buttimor says they need to be managed to the same degree as in-crop sprays so growers do not end up with a mess in the spray tank... "Growers using 2 percent AMS in soft water are effectively wasting their money," Mr Buttimor says... By adding lots of other ions to the spray tank in the form of hard water or soluble liquid herbicides, it neutralizes these charges and the oil droplets can come together to form large oil droplets, oily gels or general glug that will float to the top or sink to the bottom of the spray tank...

WeedControl FACTSHEET in Wheel traCks northern, southern and western regions.. using additional wheel track nozzles for knock down herbicides (non-residual) can improve deposition and the level of control in the wheel tracks and adjacent areas generally, dust is only reduced when soil moisture is present, speed is reduced or more permanent wheel tracks are used... Additional wheel track nozzles are still useful for improving deposition in the wheel tracks for nonresidual products...

keeping requirements, or for making conditions as measured at the site of decisions about the suitability of conditions Temperature should be measured at a height application... Permanent weather stations will Accurate weather data allow us to compare only provide data that are legally relevant for and contrast individual spray jobs within relative humidity should be measured at 1.25m a pesticide application if they are located at a season and across a range of seasons... Temperature and relative humidity should be measured at a height of 1.25m (avoiding direct radiation onto sensors)...
