Sprayer Depot Celebrates National Agriculture Day

Posted by Sprayer Depot on Mon, Mar 07, 2016

Sprayer Depot is more than just your one-stop shop for all spray equipment, parts and accessories. National_AG_DAY_2016.pngWe 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:

Spray Tips and Nozzles

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. 

AG Technology
Agriculture has become very technology driven, and there are some great resources to help you control, monitor and grow your farm. We have hand-picked our 3 favorite apps that will make your job a little bit easier.
TractorPal: This app keeps inventory and maintenance records for all your personal agriculture machines like cars, tractors, lawn mowers and sprayers. You can also record each item’s maintenance and will remind you when service is required. 
Weed ID: The Ag Weed ID application is an in-hand tool for producers to help identify weeds during scouting in 6 major row crops. Click here for other tips on spraying for weed control!
Mix Tank: Winner of AgProfessional magazine’s Readers Choice, this is one popular app that will assist you with the proper tank mixing sequence of crop protection products.
Spray Equipment
We simply cannot stress enough the importance of servicing your spray equipment. Performing timely maintenance will save you from a lot of headaches. Waiting for problems to arise will not only cost you time but will also cost you a lot of money. So get started on a spray equipment maintenance plan and always have a couple of spare parts ready to cut downtime when something needs to be replaced.
If you have some extra time, visit the Agriculture Council of America for even more information on how you can help celebrate National Ag Day!
