Spray height control

GRDC FS Spray Height Control cover image thumbnail

Auto boom height is used to maintain the spray nozzle at the correct height above the target area.


Key points

  • 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.
