Abstract:

Effective pest control requires precise and uniform application of pesticide on the target area. Air assistance in spraying system improves the deposition uniformly in the entire tree canopy. Requirement of spray volume and air volume is influenced by leaf area, leaf density and canopy volume of tree. It is of great importance to determine spray volume and air volume requirement in HDP mango orchard to achieve effective spraying and precise pest control. To assess spray volume and air volume requirement for spraying on HDP matured mango orchard, tree parameters canopy volume, mean leaf area, leaf density and total leaf area of tree were estimated. Spray volume and air volume requirement for HDP mango orchard spraying were calculated. The required spray volume application rate per hectare was ranged from 144.24 lit/ha to 216.36 lit/ha and air volume requirement was 2.50 m3/s for efficient spraying operation in HDP mango orchard.
