UK: Improving the efficacy of plant protection applications to ornamental crops

Improving spray application efficacy will lead to improvements in crop uniformity, quality and growth, especially in the case of chemical growth regulator applications. This factsheet aims to help growers of ornamental crops improve the efficacy of plant protection applications via handheld sprayers by providing a range of practical and best practice suggestions, some of which are based on the outcome of a recent HDC funded project (PO 008), while building on the content of the previous HDC Factsheet 14/06.
