Applying The Chemicals

Reference work entry


Spraying is the application of a chemical to a plant in liquid form; dusting the application of a fine dry powder. The difference between spraying and dusting was very clear-cut before aerosol bombs, mist blowers, and fog machines were developed to apply liquids in such concentrated form that the particles are practically dry before they reach the plant and before spray-dusters were made to deliver wetted dusts.
