Rinsate from cleaning your sprayer can be a huge issue for many applicators as what to do with it. This seminar looks at new pesticide technology where less rinsing is required plus the options of handling rinsate of your cleaned sprayers. Applicators from previous decades did not realize the impact of pesticide rinsate had on the environment, but now applicators realize the impact and must deal with it.

Nozzle manufacturers over the last few years have really stepped up to the plate when it comes to developing drift reducing nozzles. As pesticide applicators, we are always concerned about spray drift to off target locations, thus many applicators have chosen drift reduction nozzles to reduce the potential for spray drift. Unfortunately spray coverage may not be adequate for some pesticides with drift reduction nozzles and the pesticide may not be doing as good a job as we have hoped for. Join Tim as he looks at the topic of balancing spray drift vs. spray coverage.

Small sprayers need to be calibrated too. Many misapplications have been made with small sprayers as anyone can purchase these sprayers and most people do not know how to calibrate them properly. Join Tim as he shows you his approach on how to calibrate these sprayers so your pesticide application can be done accurately and safely.

Rinsate water when cleaning your sprayer is a huge concern for pesticide applicators. We need to clean our sprayers, yet how to we dispose of the rinsate in an environmentally friendly way. Join Tom Wolf as he talks about a new alternative when dealing with rinsate, Biobeds.

One of the enduring challenges in spraying is providing good canopy coverage for late season spraying of taller canopies, either for desiccation or fungicide. The use of double nozzles, boom height, water volumes, and travel speed are explored for improving pesticide performance. New double nozzle technologies available from a number of manufacturers are introduced and discussed.

This topic integrates a number of important aspects of spraying at a range of travel speeds in the same field, including nozzle selection, effect of pressure on pattern uniformity and spray quality, and pesticide performance with various spray qualities. There will be some overlap with topic #1, but this talk emphasizes practical issues encountered with a modern high-clearance sprayer.

Spray drift is an applicator's worst nightmare. It is a leading cause of complaints for sprayer applicators. In the last few years, nozzle manufactures have developed different types of nozzles to help reduce drift. This web cast seminar looks at different types of nozzles and how they work. Also examined are other ways to reduce drift besides nozzle selection.

This session is not meant to make you climatologists or TV forecasters. This session is meant to help you understand the drivers of air movement (applied at the work location) and to anticipate when that air movement may help you or hinder you in your efforts to get your treatment product through the air to your treatment target. Successful completion of this session, it will make your job easier and improve the percentage of product that makes it to the target. It will also reinforce your awareness of how critical this is to our industry.

Sprayers are actually fairly simple machines meant to apply pesticide accurately and evenly. Many applicators are reluctant to work or overhaul a sprayer as they may not work on it on a daily basis. Many mechanics are not taught about sprayers in their training and thus they are reluctant to work on them. Tim Garner will go over some simple sprayer circuits that sprayers follow depending on types of pumps. Let Tim show you that sprayers are uncomplicated and fairly easy to work with.

Technology is continually changing and GPS units are becoming part of our everyday life. GPS and weather stations can also play a big role in pest management and pesticide application. This web cast seminar looks at how pesticide applicators can use GPS and weather stations both in pest management and in pesticide applications.

It is part of every applicator’s job to complete their pesticide applicator records when applying pesticides. Join Tim as he reviews what is required, how long they must be kept and ways you may be able to simplify them. Health Canada’s Buffer Zone calculator is discussed and used to show applicators other tools available that may affect their applications near open bodies of water.

This webinar looks at the importance of accurate measurement. From calculating area size for the pesticide application to accurate measurement of tank sizes and pesticide rates. One of the reasons for pesticide resistance can be improper applying chemicals at reduced rates without even being aware you are doing so. Sprayer tanks and measuring equipment need to be checked and rechecked to ensure proper rates are being applied. On the other side overapplication is expensive and wasteful. Join Tim as he shows you the problem and ways to do accurate measurement.

You must take part 1 before taking part 2 This session is designed to help you apply the fundamentals of weather (from part 1) to 10 common application situations that we all face, but that are so localized that no public forecast could possibly alert you to them. It is meant to help you understand the movement of air and to anticipate when that air movement may help you or hinder you in your efforts to get your treatment product through the air to your treatment target (and more importantly, ONLY your treatment target).
