Night spraying

When applying herbicide, timing is critical. Night spraying presents a practical alternative to spraying in poor daytime conditions, and has the potential to improve efficacy due to greater absorption. This could allow farmers to cover the same amount of acreage in a shorter time frame, or to cover more acres with the same equipment. If night spraying proves to be a valuable option for farmers, it could increase profits and decrease irresponsible pesticide application.
