The Art of Application

Welcome to the Art of Application series, your one-stop-shop source of guidance for ornamental growers looking to get the best from their crop protection spraying.

Whether it’s cordylines, hebes and clematis, or pansies, primulas and pot ’mums, the diversity of leaf types and wide range of plant architecture means spray application on a typical ornamentals nursery presents growers with a considerable challenge.

The Art of Application taps into our extensive know-how built up from the results of its wide-ranging R&D programme, with trials run over many years in various locations. That includes a lot of research on ornamentals nurseries to improve spray efficacy, use less water and reduce drift - just two of the most difficult factors facing growers.
