Objective
The overall objective of this research is to test a universal intelligent decision spray control system developed by ARS that can be easily retrofitted on conventional equipment for pesticide spray applications in specialty crop production. Specific objectives to achieve the primary goal include: (a) test a universal intelligent-decision spray control system that is retrofitted to existing equipment to increase pesticide application efficiency and reduce off-target losses in nurseries, hazelnut orchards, vineyards, and other specialty crops in Oregon; and (b) integrate the new spray technology into best pest management programs for specialty crop productions.
