Sprayer Calibration Workshop

April 9 @ 2:00 pm - 4:30 pm

Join UMaine Extension and Willows Awake Winery for this interactive demonstration on calibrating airblast sprayers. Resources for calibrating boom and backpack sprayers will be discussed and available, however the focus of the program will be on airblast sprayers for tree fruits, grapes and other small fruits. At this program we will cover nozzle selection, calibration tools and worksheets, and the calibration process for improving spray coverage, reducing pesticide amounts, and optimizing your pest management. We’ll demonstrate the use of new nozzle clamps for calibrating airblast sprayers that can be loaned out to farmers for use at their own operations. This program is eligible for 2 pesticide credits.
