Choose the Right Spray Gear
You need the right equipment for safe, efficient and effective spraying
Demystify this essential part of your fruit growing kit by discovering whether you need a 5-litre sprayer or a 50-litre sprayer, or something much bigger (or smaller).
Successful organic fruit growers need some way to spray their trees. But it can be hard to choose the right equipment, and it’s easy to end up with equipment that is too small, too big, too expensive or too time consuming for the size of your spraying job.
Spraying one tree is a very different job to spraying ten, or 100, so choosing the right equipment can save you a great deal of time and money.
This short course covers the pros and cons (and costs) of different types of hand sprayers, bottle sprayers, knapsack sprayers and larger sprayers to help you decide which type will suit you best.
