calibration and maintenance of spray equipment are essential. Over-application of herbicides is costly and may result in crop injury or drift. Under-application may result in poor weed control. Similarly, sprayers that are not well maintained may deliver an uneven spray pattern, resulting in weedy “streaks” through the field.   To correctly apply the right amount of herbicide, one will need to know how many acres you can spray with your particular size sprayer. Listed below is a simple way to calibrate (Boom or Boomless) your sprayer to be certain the amount you are applying per acre. Boom Sprayer Calibration: 1. Determine nozzle spacing. 2.

  Then the person doing the calibration sprays for the same time in seconds into a bucket that can measure in ounces. There are ounces in a gallon, so the number of ounces collected in the bucket were needed to spray th of an acre and therefore is the same as the gallons per acre (GPA) that would be applied in the field. So 30 ounces in the bucket would be 30 GPA!

Having an accurate speed is important because it is used in the subsequent calibration steps and effects good coverage. Always check speed in the field as opposed to a gravel road, since the terrain influences speed.

There are two ways to assess speed. Method 1: Manual check. In the orchard, mark a foot path with two stakes. BOOMLESS SPRAYER 1. Select a course length based on spray swath width (from chart below) Spray width (feet) 30 32 34 36 38 40 42 44 Course length (feet) *If your sprayer’s spray width is not listed, divide 5, by your spray width to get travel distance.

Measure out course in field to be sprayed. Size: KB. Pesticides are most cost-effective and perform optimally when applied calibration of orchard or other field weed sprayers. book labeled rates. Too much pesticide can injure crops; too little can give inadequate or unreliable control.

Careful calibration is essential to proper sprayer operation, and the economic return on the small investment of time required can be volume of spray mix applied per acre by a sprayer depends on:Nozzle.

Calibrating Orchard Weed Sprayers Timothy J. Smith Area Extension Agent Just after harvest, before leaves fall is the best time of year to apply soil residual herbicides in orchards. All boom sprayers need a calibration check prior to use, even if they were operating correctly the last time you used them.

Drive through the measured distance in the field at your normal spraying speed, and record the travel time in seconds. Repeat this procedure and average the two measurements. With the sprayer parked, run the sprayer at the same pressure level and catch the output from each nozzle in a measuring jar for the travel time required in step 5 above.

There are several ways to calibrate a sprayer, but they all require three types of measurements: travel speed, nozzle output and distance between nozzles. Here is a common and simple calibration method, says Ozkan. Step 1: Fill your tank at least half-full of water to simulate field conditions.

While filling, measure the distance between two. Page 2 Calibrating Boom Sprayers —A Users Guide Two methods for calibrating a boom sprayer II—The 1/th acre method I—The tank refill method: Set two stakes feet apart in a field that is similar to the area to be sprayed.

Partially fill and operate the sprayer. Modern sprayers are engineered for specific applications to maximize spraying performance. There are ten common sprayer types used in agriculture spraying applications with various ranges for fluid rates, pressure psi, distance/coverage potentials, capacity, and nozzle sprayer types are: backpack, spot, ATV, UTV, tow behind, truck bed, 3 point hitch, boom, boomless, and mist.

Example 3. For larger handgun sprayers with liquid herbicide formulations. You calibrate your sprayer and the output is 50 GPA, and your sprayer holds gallons. The area you can treat is 2 acres with your full spray tank. The label requires an herbicide application rate of 5 fl oz/acre for the target weed.

Test for leaks, other sprayer problems, spray pattern uniformity and calibration. Equation 2 If a set of nozzles is available for use, the previous formula, after rearranging the values, can be used to determine the sprayer application rate in gallons per acre. Weed Control Sprayers. Orchard herbicide sprayers must be able to efficiently place herbicides on the orchard floor with minimal risk to the trees.

Successful orchard herbicide application requires: (1) appropriate herbicide selection, (2) proper timing of applications, and (3) correctly adjusted, calibrated and operated spray equipment. Calibrate sprayers in a vineyard, nursery or orchard that is representative of the vineyard, nursery or orchard to be sprayed.

Calibrating a sprayer on a hard surface (such as pavement) can induce errors as high as 15% compared to calibrating in a tilled field.

Figure 1: Spray distribution pattern of different nozzle types. The sprayer must be set to apply the proper amount of total spray mixture. This is usually given in gallons per acre and is listed with the herbicide recommendations or on the product label. Typical amounts range from 10 to 30 gallons per acre.

7) Have the operator spray the target crop using their typical set-up (i.e. ground speed, pressure, rate, air settings, etc.) Have attendees and the operator watch the ribbons as the sprayer passes.

Spray from one side with both booms on and then stop to discuss results. Then spray from the other side and explore the cumulative impact.

Also, sprayer output should be periodically checked throughout the season to assure proper application rate. Although boom sprayers are calibrated in a variety of ways, each method uses the measurements of nozzle flow rate and equipment travel speed.

The following charts and procedures illustrate how easily the calibration process can be achieved.The spray log book was authored by spray application specialist Jorg Kitt and offers farmers and growers a tool to record important spraying data each time they spray.

Data fields include: weather conditions, product used, rates, mixing order and volumes, nozzle type and spacing, sprayer configuration and operator protection.

And of course, sprayers that lack PWM alltogether, possibly because of cost. The Capstan EVO addresses both issues. Introduced in January ofit gives older AIM Command units affordable turn compensation. As a bonus, a complete new EVO install on non-PWM sprayers is available at a significant discount compared to most other PWM products.
