Sprayer Calibration & WOF/Maintenance check
Spray-Tec has the ability to refine and check your sprayer calibration to give you the best result from your sprayer to benefit the health and production of your crops. We perform a detailed calibration and maintenace check incorporated with a detailed report that will help you achieve the best your sprayer has to offer.
Coverage is key on all crops!
Better coverage is achieved from prunning strategies and most of all your sprayers setup. Every sprayer is different. We work with the air out put from your individual sprayer and match speeds and nozzles to suit the application.
It is important to chose the correct nozzles to produce the correct droplet size, pattern and volume for each application. The Horticulture, Viticulture and Agriculture industry has been moving forward introducing new types of nozzles in different applications for better efficacy.
