Vegetable, Produce and Vine Crop Spraying

Vine crops (melons, cucumbers, pumpkins, grapes and others) thrive because the A1 Mist Sprayer deposits spray droplets on the underside of the leaves, as well as the top. This is next to impossible to achieve with conventional boom or aerial spraying methods. The A1 Mist Sprayer provides more uniform coverage. No streaks or missed spots, and 100% better control of the chemical and its target area with proper application and bordering.

Foliar feeding is used when insufficient fertilizer was used before planting, when a quick growth response is wanted, when micronutrients (such as iron or zinc) are locked into the soil, or when the soil is too cold for the plants to use the fertilizer applied to the soil. Foliar-applied nutrients are absorbed and used by the plant quite rapidly. Absorption begins within minutes after application and, with most nutrients, is completed within 1-2 days. Foliar nutrition can be a supplement to soil nutrition at a critical time for the plant, but not a substitute, since greater amounts of plant material are needed than what can be absorbed through the plant leaf at any given time. At transplanting time, an application of phosphorus spray will help in the establishment of young plants in cold soil. For perennial plants, early spring growth is usually limited by cold soil, even when the air is warm. Under such conditions, soil microorganisms are not active enough to convert nutrients into forms available for roots to absorb; yet, if the nutrients were available, the plants could utilize them. A nutrient spray to the foliage will provide the needed nutrients immediately, allowing the plants to begin growth.

Apply chemicals efficiently

A1 Mist Sprayers applications for fungicides and insecticides could benefit sweet corn, tomatoes, cabbage, onions, cucumbers, strawberries, peppers, melons, grapes, cranberries, raspberries, wild blueberries, edible beans, pumpkins and gourds.

Many producers/growers have sprayed their crops with an A1 Mist Sprayer. They have reported excellent results at treatment levels 25-30% below conventional spraying methods and in half the time!

Spray your vegetables and vine crops with a mist sprayer. These versatile, compact mist sprayer units can be used in many different insecticide, herbicide, fungicide and foliar feeding applications including fruits & vegetables, specialty & row crops, orchards, groves & windbreaks, fly, mosquito, and other insect control, pasture & grass applications, and many more.

1-2 gallons per acre will effectively cover your crop with swath widths of 40-100 feet.

Powdery mildew is a fungus disease that poses a major threat to the success of pumpkin crops. The disease infects the leaves of the pumpkin vines causing white, powdery lesions, which spread and eventually kill the leaves and vine. Sever infections may kill the plants before the fruit matures. The fungus may also infect the stems of the fruit, causing the fruit to rot shortly after harvest. Much of the value of pumpkins lies in their ability to hold well after leaving the field. The loss of a substantial post-harvest life due to powdery mildew infection can severely reduce the profitability of the crop.
