Quality phytosanitary treatments
The “Guidelines on Good Practice for Ground Application of Pesticides” defines a good distribution of plant protection products as one that aims to achieve maximum biological effectiveness and minimum exposure to plant protection products for humans and the environment.
Lower the risk of a mistake and assure a better quality at lower cost and full traceability
- Check the weather conditions before and during the treatment (Air temperature and humidity, Delta T, rain, Wind speed)
- Verify the correct pulverization of the drops according to the temperature and wind conditions (larger drops in the presence of high temperatures and breezes)
- Avoid treatment when:
- convective air movements (e.g. on hot spring-summer afternoons) occur
- thermal inversion conditions (more frequent on clear and calm nights) occur
- Coverage and delivery of the product to the target
- Timing on application
It is also essential to comply with certain precautionary rules
Always respect the constraints specified on the labels of plant protection products to protect aquatic organisms, wild plants and non-target organisms.
Often, you are operating in conditions of limited resources (time, personnel, equipment) and field operations are carried out in a hurried manner.
It is therefore extremely important to plan in advanced the best time for the treatment and to verify and document, in retrospect, that the operation has been carried out under the best conditions and in compliance with regulatory constraints.
FieldClimate helps to plan and monitor crop protection
Holistic approach to crop protection
- Coverage and uniformity of treatment (missed rows or fields not treated correctly)
- Speed of tractor
- No treatment on respected areas
- Distances from watercourses and other buffer zones
