The hoods apply a knock down herbicide to between the clover rows, while the rear spray nozzles can put a selective herbicide onto the white clover.

Re: Inter Row Sprayer
I Think it`s self-home made sprayer, I can see quick couplers and an normal garden water hose made by Gardena. :-D

I do not now what sort of chemicals they use, but normal gardenhose is not chemical proved. :-[

Nice pics Tas! how wide works the spayer, and is is yours?

Re: Inter Row Sprayer
Yes guys, it is a home made rig (I guess you can buy inter row sprayers but these guys found it easier & cheaper to build this one).

No it isnt mine, it belongs to a contractor.

It sprays 11 rows, I think the clover is sown at 40 cm row spacing, so that would make it 4.8 metres.

I think they told me they were building one up to spray about 6 metres, which would be spraying 15 rows.

Re: Inter Row Sprayer
Thanks Tas,

The contractor use this in front of the tractor,

We use in the past also a inter row sprayer, self made about a 1.30 working wide, row spacing 30 cm for use on our tree farm.

Now we don`t use it anymore beqouse we work now whit a smal spayer on our back. It`s working better for us.

Re: Inter Row Sprayer
If you read through the text Niels, I have explained a bit about it.

The tank would obviously be on the tractor or truck & the sprayer would be mounted on the front of the tractor or truck.

Non selective herbicide (killing everything, weeds, volunteer clovers, etc) is sprayed inside the hoods, while a selective herbicide (killing grasses, for example) can be sprayed over the clover rows.
