Basrah Journal For Date Palm Research,
Volume 5, Issue 1, Pages 1-15
Abstractn electrical instrument was designed and manufactured for pesticides
spraying on date palm trees, its consisted of many telescopic columns, tank,
centrifugal pump, battery which is 12 volt and nozzles, the farmer can use this
instrument to spray of the pesticides without lifting to the top of date palm. Results of
this study indicated that the discharge of instrument was 10 m3/hr, the productivity
was higher than the traditional sprayer, which was 42% ; its field efficiency was 90%
and when used in the field to control date palm fungal leaf spot, the results proved
that the electrical instrument was most efficient than traditional sprayer in reducing of
the infection rate (cm/ day). Spraying efficiency was 67% in the electrical instrument,
while reached 51% in traditional sprayer.
