A herbicide sprayer for small-holder farmers in the tropics. Closing report ODA Project R 3337

A wheelbarrow-type ULV sprayer was evaluated in terms of its physical characteristics and biological efficacy. A spinning cup atomizer (the Micron Micromax) is driven directly by friction against the ground wheel. Liquid is fed to the cup by a peristaltic pump, also attached to the wheel, so that both cup rotation and flow rate are related to walking speed.
