New R&D report - best practice for protectant spray coverage of spring and summer kiwifruit canopies
25 June 2015

Optimising copper use for sustainable control of Psa in kiwifruit orchards—this study was undertaken to build on previous work to develop best practice recommendations for protective sprays for kiwifruit. In particular, it was to determine (1) for how long low-drift air inclusion AI nozzles could efficiently deliver protectant sprays to expanding spring canopies; and (2) to maximise the efficiency of spray delivery to flowering Hayward and fully expanded Gold3 canopies on wide row spacings.
