John Deere Sprayer Specialist Featured on Episode of The Minute by FMC

3/4/2014

PHILADELPHIA – March 4, 2014 – Proper calibration of sprayer equipment could be the difference between a poor or plentiful crop and landscape. The Minute Host Jake Turner recently spoke with Jamie Boswell, a John Deere sprayer specialist at Northwest Implement, to discuss best practices for sprayer calibration. The episode is available online now at www.news.FMCMinute.com.

Boswell’s advice to motivate calibration includes appropriate cleaning of the sprayers, checking the settings and changing sprayer speeds depending on the landscape. Implementing the correct preparations well enough in advance, Boswell said, is his initial recommendation for any equipment operator.

“The best piece of advice I would give an applicator, prior to application season, is to get the machine out,” said Boswell, located in Stanberry, Mo. “Run water through it and do some of the calibrations – check the flow, make sure nozzles are spraying evenly and do that ahead of time. It will save you headaches down the road.”

The Minute by FMC features Host Jake Turner as he travels through corn and soybean country talking with experts about pest management and other important issues that affect yield. Previous episodes have highlighted topics such as at-plant insecticides, breaking the yield ceiling and fall burndown field comparisons.
