Spray height control
Published: 4 Aug 2014
Auto boom height is used to maintain the spray nozzle at the correct height above the target area.
- Auto boom height can help to maintain correct nozzle height above the target, which improves the evenness of the spray deposit and reduces spray drift through excessive boom height.
- Operators should have realistic expectations of how an auto boom height system will perform.
- Higher travel speeds and greatly undulating terrain may reduce the ability of a height control system to perform as intended.
- Electronic auto boom height controllers require regular calibration and may not be suited to all boom designs.
