Increasing Water Efficiency in Pesticides

Improving the formulation of pesticides and moving towards more precise irrigation and applications systems can help increase water efficiency.

For example, the use of air induction nozzles, which mix air with the spray liquid, can reduce water volumes used from 1,500-2,000 liters with conventional sprayers to 200-800 litres.

If the water-based sprays are combined with high precision application nozzles, water use can be brought to 10-50 liters per hectare.
