What are the results?
- 70% reduction in spray drift
- 20% + increase in coverage
- Spray in higher wind speeds
- Superior drift control and increased crop coverage
- Reduced water usage by over 50%
- Extended spray windows
- Environmental and Legislative Compliance
- Increased efficacy and disease control arising from using smaller droplets without the associated drift issues.
TCT REPORT BY WAGENINGEN UNIVERSITY
Spray drift reduction of the MagGrow spray system. Effect of magnetism, nozzle type, end nozzle and spray boom height.
This study was carried out by Wageningen University & Research and was commissioned and financed by MagGrow (Dublin, Ireland) within the context of the classification for spray drift reduction of the MagGrow spray system (project number 3710445400). Wageningen Plant Research is the collaboration of Wageningen University and the foundation Stichting Wageningen Research. Wageningen, April 2017.
