2017 | Anon | Case Study

Spray coverage and calibration was highlighted as a critical issue to improve pest control at the July 2014 round of MacGroups (Lindsay Rural proudly sponsored the QLD MacGroup meetings). These case studies have been put together as a joint collaboration between the AMS and Lindsay Rural to illustrate the improvements possible with the assistance of a trained professional. Lindsay Rural employ a dedicated spray technician (Adam Robinson) to assist growers on a fee for service basis. Lindsay Rural worked with this grower to document the process of improvement with the anticipation that this information would help other growers see the improved coverage results achieved, understand the ease of the process and encourage more growers to engage professional assistance to calibrate their machinery and improve coverage.
