Orchard/Grove/Berry Spraying

Fruit growers have found that the A1 Mist Sprayer is a very efficient and less expensive spraying application method.

A1 Mist Sprayers Vertical Volutes will spray though thick foliage and will deposit spray droplets on all sides of the surface areas. Applying insecticides and miticides on apples and pears:

Orchards have discovered that they can reduce fungicide application rates by 30-35% while retaining effectiveness. They can spray more effectively in much less time. Grapefruit and apple growers are saying that the A1 Mist Sprayer is the preferred machine for their applications. The A1 Mist Sprayer allows you to penetrate the thick foliage of berry bushes when spraying insecticides and fungicides. These Mist Sprayers allow you to control the air volume and velocity to achieve the penetration and coverage that you need without damaging the plant or fruit. 

 

Foliar fertilization, a water soluable fertilizer that is sprayed on the foliage, may help small woody plants, especially plants that aren't getting enough iron. Foliar feeding of trees is becoming more popular and is often used to correct any micronutrient deficiencies. Iron chlorosis is one of the most common micronutrient deficiencies, due to typically high soil pH values. Iron can be added anytime during the growing season, as it does not stimulate excessive growth but corrects a chlorotic (leaf-yellowing symptom) condition.

 

Our 2-Way Volute is specifically designed to allow growers to reach rows on both sides of the Mist Sprayer simultaneously.

A Michigan State University study has shown plants absorb nutrients not only through the roots, but also through their foliage, the fruit, the twigs, and the trunk, even through their flowers. Plants can absorb nutrients 8-10 times more efficiently through their leaf surfaces than through their roots. When applying nutrients to the leaf the nutrients move through the stomata downward through the plant--at a rate of about a foot an hour. When applying nutrients to the leaves in soluble forms, as much as 95 percent of what is applied may be used by the plant. If a similar amount is applied to the soil about 10 percent of it is available to the plant. Foliar feeding is effective even on dormant plants and trees.

 

Applying insecticides and miticides on apples and pears:

1. To minimize the emergence of pests that are resistant to pesticides avoid repeated application or season-long use of pesticides with the same mode of action.

2. Use a delayed dormant oil appplication to control european red mite and San Jose scale.

3. Use a broad-spectrum insecticide only against codling moth, plum curculio, and leafrollers.

4. Use narrow-spectrum insecticides if problems are detected with aphids, leafhoppers, leafminers, and San Jose scale.

5. Avoid using products known to be highly toxic to predatory mites or predaceous insects.
