Application technique of crop protection products in orchards - Review of the Casdar PulVéFix project
biblio., graph., illus., photo., tabl., anglais
The use of sprayers is subject to increasing technical and regulatory constraints, which are aimed at guaranteeing the absence of health and environmental risks when applying chemical treatments. The Casdar PulVeFix project studied the performance of a new fixed spraying system on foliage. The results show a reduction in application time (30 seconds/ha), a significant reduction in off-target drift, satisfactory efficacy on scab as well as Lepidopteran pests and storage diseases, and the fruits comply with Maximum Residue Limits (MRL) at harvest.
