Helpful Information

Mist Spraying Versus Hydraulic or Dilute Spraying

Dilute or hydraulic spraying patterns (above left) produce large spray droplets
which run off crops, wasting water and chemical. Mist spraying (above right
will give you better distribution of small spray droplets which produce better
penetration and coverage while using less chemical, water and time.
