Weather monitoring equipment for agricultural spraying operations

The weather before, during and after a pesticide application can have a large impact on the outcome of a spray job. 

Key points

  • There are legal requirements to measure and record the weather parameters at the site of application during spray operations.
  • It may be useful to have more than one device to compare accuracy.
  • Select equipment that can be easily operated and easily recalibrated.
  • On-board weather stations offer ‘on-the-go’ monitoring to allow the operator to make better decisions about the suitability of conditions while spraying.
