Looking for more information on spray nozzle technology?
Are your nozzles the best match for your herbicides?
Are you doing all you can to keep the spray on the intended site?

This program was developed and will be delivered by Dr. Bob Wolf for growers who self-apply herbicides and custom applicators. The On Target Application Academy is a one-of-a-kind educational opportunity to provide growers extensive hands-on training for better awareness of herbicide application practices to achieve the most effective weed control possible with today’s emerging product and equipment innovations, and help mitigate spray drift – which is a continuous area of focus for the agricultural industry. Dr. Wolf recently retired as Professor Emeritus from Kansas State University where he worked as a Professor and Extension Specialist in Application Technology in the Biological and Agricultural Engineering Department. Wolf’s main responsibility at Kansas State was to conduct an extension and research program in all areas of chemical/pesticide application with a particular emphasis on nozzle technology.

This workshop is sponsored by BASF.  There is no registration fee.

Recertification credit for pesticide applicators and Certified Crop Advisor are also available.
