Sprayer Depot is more than just your one-stop shop for all spray equipment, parts and accessories. We strive to build strong relationships within the spray equipment community and across industries. We are proud of our long-lasting relationships with customers in the agriculture industry. That's why every spring we join in observance of National Agriculture Day, officially celebrated on March 15th, 2016.
National Ag Day recognizes and celebrates the abundance provided by American agriculture. What better way to show our appreciation to all of our agricultural customers than to take the time to recognize agriculture in our country alongside producers, agricultural associations, corporations, universities, government agencies and business across the country.
"Agriculture provides almost everything we eat, use and wear on a daily basis, and is increasingly contributing to fuel and other bio-products. Each year, members of the agricultural industry gather together to promote American agriculture. This effort helps educate millions of consumers." Agriculture Council of America (ACA).
So we’re joining the campaign to help bring awareness and share some of our favorite ag spray tips:
Make sure you've selected the appropriate nozzles for the application. This can help reduce off-target movement while giving good coverage.
Although we wish spray tips could last forever, the truth is that inevitably they will need to be replaced. The life of a spray tip depends on many things like usage and abrasiveness of the spray solution. A worn out spray tip can result in improper chemical application resulting in over-spraying. This can put your crops at risk, and it poses a hazard.
Replace spray tips and nozzles immediately if you notice a change in flow rate or a change in pattern distribution.
