Vine crops (melons, cucumbers, pumpkins, grapes, and others) thrive because the A1 Mist Sprayer will deposit spray droplets on the underside of the leaves, as well as the top. This is next to impossible with conventional boom or aerial spraying methods. The A1 Mist Sprayer provides more uniform coverage. No streaks or missed spots, and you find that you have 100% better control of the chemical and its target area with proper application and bordering.
A1 Mist Sprayers provide you with better coverage at a much lower cost than you would incur with traditional application methods.
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, it 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.
versatile, compact mist sprayer
The A1 Mist Sprayer units are versatile, compact mist sprayer units that can be used in many different insecticide, herbicide, and fungicide applications.
Our 2-Way Volute is specifically designed to allow growers to reach rows on both sides of the Mist Sprayer simultaneously.
1-2 gallons per acre will effectively cover your crop with swath widths of 4-75 feet.
A1 Mist Sprayers provide better coverage at a much lower cost than you would incur with other application methods. Many producers/growers have sprayed their grapes with an A1 Mist Sprayer. They have reported excellent results at treatment levels 25-30% below conventional spraying methods, in half the time!
