What are the results?

  • Superior drift control and increased crop coverage
  • Reduced water usage by over 50% 
  • Extended spray windows
  • Reduced chemicals by over 20%
  • 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.
