How to better utilize pulse-width modulation sprayers
University of Nebraska–Lincoln agronomy students took top honors at the 2016 North Central Weed Science Society Meeting held Dec. 12-15 in Des Moines, Iowa. Thomas Butts received first place in the student video competition with his video “How to better utilize pulse-width modulation sprayers.” Butts' research focus is in weed science and pesticide application technologies. Under the instruction of Greg Kruger at the Pesticide Application Technology Laboratory in North Platte, Nebraska, Butts is currently researching the influence of pulse-width modulation spray application systems on droplet spectrum, spray application parameters, and herbicide efficacy. The precise applications of new herbicide technologies will allow farmers to more effectively utilize drift reduction technologies, increase crop yield potential, and control herbicide-resistant weeds.
