How Trajectory Spraying Technology Works

Gil Gullickson 05/08/2013 @ 4:36pm Crops Technology Editor for Successful Farming magazine/Agriculture.com

Trajectory technology is a new spraying strategy that uses multiple angles to target weeds or the crop canopy.

 “When (soybean) rust concerns appeared in 2005, all researchers said you (applicators) should hit the canopy from multiple angles with droplets 200 to 300 microns,” says Will Smart, president of Greenleaf Technologies.  “These days, with sprayers going faster and faster, we have tweaked a design to compensate for the fact that spray travels with application.”
