Benefits of using a spray control system

Applying pesticides and other agricultural chemicals (such as fertilizers and growth
regulators) with an electrostatic low-volume spraying system provides the farmers with
several benefits, including increased spray efficiency, increased spray efficacy, lower
economic prices, greater safety and less damage to the environment. Some benefits of
agricultural sprayers are:

Greater spray efficiency: Electrostatic low-volume sprayers (Knapsack Power
Sprayer) use less water and cover more area per hour than conventional dilute
sprayers. This saves time and allows the farmers to treat a large number of farmland

Greater spray efficacy: Electrostatic Power Sprayer actually charge ultra-fine
droplets of spray material with a negative electric charge. The charged spray particles
square measure drawn to the plant and to the target pest. This is a more effective
method than sprays that are applied with a large volume of water but do not cover the
entire plant surface.

Economic savings: Battery Operated Sprayer save time and provide better
coverage, the overall cost per acre is less than with higher volume dilute sprayers. They
use an average of 70% less fuel and 25% less pesticide per acre than non-electrostatic
dilute sprayers, and application costs an average 20% less per acre.

Development of new automated systems for agricultural machinery helps to improve
competitiveness and sustainability in agriculture with a positive impact on the quality of
yields. The main advantage deriving from the assisted driving in a self-propelled
sprayer with a GPS enabled guidance system associated with a control system of
sectors of the boom is overlap elimination (i.e. the interruption of the distribution of
a crop protection product over areas already treated in a previous path, and the
interruption of the distribution over areas that do not require any treatment (edges of
the field, etc.). It must be emphasized that for operations that involve the use of
external inputs such as fertilizers, pesticides, etc., the application of this modern
technology allows the recording of power sprayer paths and product consumption and
as a consequence, provides an economic analysis of the sprayer operation.
