Helpful Information

Mist Spraying Versus Hydraulic or Dilute Spraying

Dilute or hydraulic spraying patterns produce large spray droplets which run off crops, wasting water and chemical.

 

Mist spraying will give you better distribution of small spray droplets which produce better penetration and coverage while using less chemical, water and time.

 

To help you better understand our Micron size (50-800 Microns depending on tip) take a look at the Table to the Right.

To help you understand even more take a look at the Table Below that explains Micron Mist Size in correlation to one inch.
