I asked Kuya Roque if I can observe and help him with the Fertilizer Spray Calibration.
Importance of Spray Calibration
Improper calibration may cause poor pest control, environmental contamination, injury to the desires turf, and unnecessary expenditures for chemicals.
Calibration of the Walking Boom Sprayer
Materials needed: A timer and 1L Graduated Cylinder
1. The volume of water sprayed by each nozzle in 10 and 20 seconds were measured using a 1L graduated cylinder.
Calibration of the 24 gallon tank sprayer
1. We’ll measure the area that can be covered by 1L of water using the sprayer.
Calibration involves mathematic calculation so I quite enjoy it (Nerd alert!). Haha.
Thank you for reading!
