Spray Tips Special Edition: Is Your Boom Too High?

High or low, the height of your sprayer boom doesn’t really matter. Right?

Actually, that’s a myth.

Welcome to a new season of Spray Tips Special Edition. In our first episode we find our dynamic duo of Sprayers101.com, Tom Wolf of AgriMetrix, and Jason Deveau of Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs, bickering over boom height.

As a vacation-bound Deveau uses a sprayer boom to practice the limbo, Wolf takes him to task for the boom’s excessive height and the terrible colour of his shirt. Before long, the glasses are off and the pineapples fly as Wolf sends Deveau out into the cold Ontario winter for a chilling adventure that proves boom height really does matter.
