Calibrating is often an important, sometimes overlooked or infrequent practice by many turfgrass managers. Calibration ensures that you apply products correctly the first time, which can save you time and money and lead to better turf. Furthermore, calibration is not as difficult as it may initially seem. In this 90-minute webinar, Aaron Patton, Ph.D., covers the basic principles of calibrating various types of sprayers and discusses nozzle selection and how it can affect drift, as well as pest control.
