Regardless of whether you use organic or conventional pesticides, environmental and economic risks are major factors to consider prior to making any pesticide application. Calibrating your pesticide application equipment each year minimizes risk of damage to the crop, and prevents unnecessary spraying. Join us for this hands-on workshop for women farmers to learn how to calibrate a backpack sprayer and a boom sprayer for your farm operation. We will talk about the types of equipment used in pesticide application, demonstrate sprayer calibration, and discuss minimizing environmental and economic risks associated with pesticide application. A brief introduction to crop insurance to further minimize economic risk will also be covered.
