are devices created and used for spraying liquid pesticide, herbicide or fertilizers to the crops. Though methods of chemical pest control have been used for centuries, they were not always spread by machine; before the 1800s, most pesticides were applied by hand. Sprayers
can also be used to spray water for irrigation. The Agricultural Sprayers
section of Toolsvilla
is a versatile section to explore. Different types of sprayers for different agricultural needs fall under this one category. The most commonly used ones are: Manual Sprayers and Machine Sprayers.
1. Manual Sprayers : The farmers who operate on a small area of land and have a low budget can easily opt for the manual sprayer. The manual sprayer is a simple piece of farming equipment. They work through an air pump. The pump compresses air into the tanks and pressurizes the liquid content. Higher the pressure, higher the spray pattern.
2. Machine Sprayers : The farmers who have a larger extent of farmland and have a slightly more budget, can opt for a mechanical sprayer. There are many kinds of machine-operated sprayers, the most common of which are low-pressure, high-pressure and fogger types.
