Developing strategies to reduce spray drift in pneumatic spraying in vineyards: Assessment of the parameters affecting droplet size in pneumatic spraying Miranda Fuentes, Antonio; Marucco, Paolo; González Sánchez, Emilio J; Gil Moya, Emilio; Grella, Marco; Balsari, Paolo (Elsevier, 2017-10-27)
Open AccessPneumatic sprayers are widely used in vineyards due to their very fine droplet size, which makes the drift risk to become an important problem to be considered. The aim of this study was to assess the effect of the spout ...
Reducing spray drift by adapting the spraying equipment to the canopy shape in olive orchards with isolated trees Miranda Fuentes, Antonio; Cuenca, Andrés; Godoy Nieto, Alberto; González Sánchez, Emilio J; Gil Moya, Emilio; LLorens, J.; Gil Ribes, Jesús A. (2018)
Open AccessThe lack of specificity of the spraying equipment commonly used in olive orchards is a remarkable problem, for not allowing farmers to apply adjusted pesticide doses to their trees, making necessary to spray very high ...
Testing the suitability of a terrestrial 2D LiDAR scanner for canopy characterization of greenhouse tomato crops Llop Casamada, Jordi; Gil Moya, Emilio; Llorens Calveras, Jordi; Miranda Fuentes, Antonio; Gallart González-Palacio, Montserrat (2016-09-01)
Open AccessCanopy characterization is essential for pesticide dosage adjustment according to vegetation volume and density. It is especially important for fresh exportable vegetables like greenhouse tomatoes. These plants are thin ...
