In-crop field management

Every grower likes to look at machinery and our technicians are no different!  The Agronomy Program was able to acquire this new high-clearance sprayer to support ongoing and new research here at the Farm.  The booms fold and are retractable to allow for applications to variable widths of research plots but it's also more efficient in how it uses water and in the accuracy of application of the various pesticides that are part of normal field crop production here on the prairies.  Equipment like this is moving our field research forward.
