Abstract:A portable plot-sprayer which may be attached to air-craft consists of 2 surplus oxygen tanks; 1 for compressed air and 1 as a liquid supply tank. Appropriate fittings, pressure regulator, and neoprene “boom” allows it to completely bypass the aircraft's conventional spray system. Application of undiluted concentrate pesticides is made possible with a minimum of material. Contruction and operational characteristics have been proven in tests with naled (Dibrom® LV Concentrate).
