Third Annual Sprayer Rodeo

sprayer rodeoWhat is a Sprayer Rodeo? It’s your chance to get your spray rig completely calibrated before the start of the new spray season.

Why should you calibrate your sprayer? Calibration quantifies the correct pesticide application rate. Over-application of pesticide leads to increased chance of crop injuiry, potential environmental impacts from off-label application rates, and increased costs because of wasted product. Under-applications will result in poor pest control, increased costs because of need for re-application, and less income because of yield loss to to pest competition.

See the FLYER for dates and locations, or for further information, call Libbie Johnson at 850.475-5230.
