An image of a farmer applying pesticides using proper calibration of pesticide application equipment.

Proper calibration of agricultural pesticide application equipment can mean the difference in control or failure of a pesticide against the targeted pest and potentially thousands of dollars of savings to the grower. Many growers are now using rate controllers; however, it is imperative to check the accuracy of these rate controllers, as well as application accuracy for equipment that does not have a rate controller. This publication will address many common questions about specific types of calibration and provide examples expressed in a straightforward and simple format.
