Spray volume for the control of weeds in sugarcane † [Full subscriber]

The objective of this work was to evaluate the efficacy of different volumes of water for the application of imazapic in sugarcane and its effect on soil coverage and operational capacity. The minimum possible volumes applied by the sprayer (70 to 80 L/ha), 100, 150, 200 L/ha were compared to the processing plant’s standard (250 or 300 L/ ha) in commercial fields with areas varying between 8 and 10 ha, at three periods within the crop season. During the applications, the parameters for operational capacity analysis were analysed. Soil coverage was evaluated by means of water-sensitive sampling and quantification through…
