Over 75 percent of all pesticide applications are made as liquid sprays. Spray equipment ranges from simple hand-operated, non-powered applicators to complex multi-nozzle, powered boom sprayers. You must balance the scope of the chemical application needs, efficiency, and economics when selecting equipment. No single machine will provide for every specific need. Several types and sizes of equipment may be necessary for safe, effective, and efficient application.
