Arkansas: 6 Spray Clinics in Feb, March

Arkansas: 6 Spray Clinics in Feb, March

The University of Arkansas System Division of Agriculture will deliver a series of six half-day spray clinics at locations throughout Arkansas in February and March.

The clinics are designed to introduce the best available application techniques and concepts to new growers, and bring experienced growers up to speed on new research, Jason Davis, extension application specialist for the Division of Agriculture said.

“We’ll demonstrate the most effective and efficient ways to approach weed and pest control through application technology,” Davis said. “Our hope is that by conducting more, shorter clinics, we’ll make ourselves more available to a greater number of Arkansas growers.”

The current schedule for the clinics is as follows:

  • Tuesday, February 23th at the Cotton Research Station in Marianna
  • Wednesday, February 24th at the Rice Research Center in Stuttgart
  • Thursday, February 25th at the Men’s Center in McGehee
  • Tuesday, March 8th at ASU Newport in Newport
  • Wednesday, March 9th at the Greene County Fairgrounds in Paragould
  • Thursday, March 10th at the Conway County Fairgrounds in Morrilton

Registration opens at 8:30 am with large group sessions starting at 9:00. Each clinic will conclude with lunch, served free of charge. Producers and applicators alike are encouraged to attend to gain valuable information on how to be more productive and efficient in the field.

The clinics are free and there will be door prizes provided by several companies. Session topics and demonstrations include:

  • New herbicide technology update
  • Identifying percent wear in nozzles
  • Application tips for matching proper nozzles with chemistries
  • Pulse Width Modulation demonstration
  • Avoiding clean-out issues demonstration
  • Electronics in applications demonstration
  • Multiple spray table nozzle demonstrations

Davis and other Extension employees will also be conducting free nozzle tests, to ensure that growers’ equipment is in good working order before planting season. Producers should bring a sample of nozzles from their equipment to be analyzed for percentage wear (three to five nozzles and caps). This valuable tool has the potential to save producers thousands of dollars during the upcoming spray season.

Three hours of CCA credit will be available.
