Billion Drop Technology Project: Year 1
Twelve agricultural chemicals were applied with conventional and ultra small drops that increase coverage. 800025, 800 15LP, and Air Jet 0.016TK3 tips were used to create drops from 130 um MVD to 410 um MVD to apply carrier rates from 10 L/ha to 100 L/ha, and chemical rates from 25 to 100 % of recommended rates. In 1985, small drops and higher concentrations increased control substantially over large drops and lower concentrations, especially at lower carrier and chemical rates.
