Chemical Use Application

The basic rule of reading the product label prior to this point is of high importance. Using the instructions from the product label you will be able to determine the best method of application, and also how to eliminate associated risks.

Calibration

Calibrating spray equipment involves measuring the output from each jet/nozzle, working out the volume of water applied per hectare and calculating the pesticide that needs to be added to the spray tank to give the correct application rate per hectare.
