Herbicide, insecticide, fungicide and foliar fertilizer applicators can get an updated look at the most efficient and effective application equipment and techniques available in agriculture during an upcoming workshop offered by the Ohio State University Extension’s Agronomic Crops Team.
Sprayer Demonstration and Technology Day will be Aug. 8 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Fulton County Fairgrounds on State Route 108, Wauseon. The program, which is free and open to the public, will offer participants the opportunity to learn how to save money, time and effort when spraying fields, said Greg LaBarge, agronomic systems field specialist, and one of the leaders of the OSU Agronomic Crops Team.
“Whether a new sprayer is in your farm’s future or you are looking to get a few more years out of your current sprayer, you will find some hints and tips to get the most benefit from your spray applications,” he said. “The goal of the workshop is to demonstrate technologies for the efficient and effective application of plant production products such as herbicides, insecticides, fungicides and foliar fertilizers.”
