Players Stadium Course New Precision Sprayer

The Players Stadium course just received a new Chem Pro 350 gallon sprayer. This precision sprayer was calibrated by the agronomy staff in order to achieve a correct spray rate. In the past, our spray rate was at 2.3 gallons per 1000 ft2. Our new spray rate is exactly 2 gallons per 1000 ft2. At this rate, when we execute a greens spray, we will fill the tank to 348 gallons allowing there to be no left over product for 4 acres sprayed. One of the benefits of this sprayer is that it has 2 different pumps on board. A centrifugal pump solely runs the agitation, while the diaphragm pump is used for the spray application.
