Spray application in summer fallows

Video Published: 6/12/2013

Webinar held Friday 6th December, 2013

Changing weed species, changing climate patterns and the requirement for double knock applications using contact herbicides to control difficult weeds are seeing an increase in summer fallow herbicide applications in most broadacre zero till farming systems.

This webinar investigates the balance between minimising spray drift and ensuring reliable efficacy via efficient spray deposition on the target when making spray applications during the warmer summer months.

The important considerations of water rates, nozzle selection, boom height and ground speed will be discussed and how to effectively manage these under rapidly changing daily environmental conditions that typically occur during the summer months.
