A sprayer is typically used to apply herbicides to crops. Tractor Zoom features a variety of sprayers for sale including 3-point mounted, pull, and self-propelled. With a sprayer, the herbicide is distributed via a nozzle through the air to the targeted weed.

How does chemical application in agriculture work?

Chemical application in agriculture is largely used to help farmers protect their crops and improve crop yield. Chemical applications help target the weeds, insects, fungus, bacteria, and disease that may damage a crop. Chemical application can also be used to apply nutrients, such as fertilizer, to help crops thrive.

According to the Food and Agriculture Organization, by 2050 farmers will need to produce 60% more food to feed the world population. Chemical application is one tactic farmers use to not only help improve crop yields but protect them from unnecessary harm in order to meet this global challenge.
