Description: Poorly calibrated sprayers create many problems in the vineyard. To combat this common issue, Lynn Wunderlich, UCCE Farm Advisor in the Foothills, has assembled a remarkable team who has created a comprehensive training experience over the past year with support from DPR. Attendees will experience an outdoor, hands-on training course covering airblast sprayer calibration and drift control techniques for applications in vineyards. Attendees will be asked to actively participate in all exercises.
Pressure Gauge Testing Available! If you want your sprayer gauge tested against a certified accurate gauge, remove your gauge and label it (name and phone number on a piece of masking tape stuck to the back), then drop it off at Kautz Farms anytime before 2pm on February 19th – the day before the actual training. Your gauge will be returned at the end of class on the 20th with the accuracy information kept confidential.
