Spray Tips with Tom Wolf — Ep. 12: The Year in Review — 8 Points of Your Spray Operation to Evaluate

As farmers shut the door on the 2014 production season (save for those in Ontario still slogging through corn harvest), so too do we wind down the last of the Spray Tips series.

In this post-harvest down-time, it’s important to take a much needed breather, then, before you know it’ll be time to start the shop projects and equipment maintenance for next year, if you haven’t started already. Before you get started, though, Tom Wolf, spray application specialist, has a handy list of things to evaluate, clean up, fix or replace on the sprayer.
