Nozzle Output Comparison

Can you see the difference in output between these two nozzles? One is a low drift nozzle and the other is not. Which nozzle would you choose for your spray rig - given that spray drift is a violation of federal and state pesticide laws and a major cause of litigation involving pesticides?

Fundamentals of Calibration

Fundamentals of Calibration offers the user an insight into the basic principles of all spraying systems. These include: speed, concentration, swath width, flow rate, orifice size, nozzles and pressure. Please note: This video was originally developed for an interactive video system which used computer graphics in various spots in the video. Those segments aren't visible in this video. As a result you will see black and white blank screens with audio at various points in the video. Be patient, the picture part of the video will return. The audio plays throughout the video and its educational value is invaluable to anyone wanting to learn the basics of calibration.

Soil Fumigation Rig in Operation

This video demonstrates how a tractor-based soil fumigation rig operates in the field. The video shows a tractor/applicator operator and an assistant. The operator controls the rig and the assistant makes sure the plastic tarp material is placed properly at the start of each row. The rig has several tanks with fumigant that is pumped through chisels into the soil. The chisels do their work as the tarp seals in the fumigant so it won't volatilize into the atmosphere. The assistant makes sure a wheel overlaps the tarp being applied with the tarp already put down in the next row. An adhesive is applied from another tank on the tractor to glue the tarp sections together under the wheel as it rolls down the row. The process moves pretty quickly as you can see from the video.
