TechTour: Light Up the Boom to Extend the Day’s Spraying Window

The best spray application you can do is the one applied at the right time — the right leaf stage, the right point in the disease cycle, the right time of day for insect control. But weather conditions don’t always cooperate, plus with more acres to cover per farmer or sprayer, a product or products that buy you more time can mean the difference between a timely application or a missed opportunity.

To help extend a tight application window, Ken Jackson, of  ATI Agritronics, explains how the use of spray nozzle lights and transport lights can not only make spraying at night possible, but also safer.

In this episode of the Dow AgroSciences’ TechTour, Shaun Haney and Jackson discuss what an AppliMax LED light package can achieve once on the sprayer, from identifying blocked nozzles to assessing nozzle wear, and how the strobe feature can be used at any time to evaluate the spray pattern.
