used spray guns – might improve crop protection management in greenhouses considerably. Spray application technique will influence the spray deposition and as such its efficiency. In this study, the effect of air support and spray angle (-30°, 0°, 30°) on spray deposition in Ivy pot plants was tested using a coarse droplet spray nozzle (Lechler ID 90 02 at 6.0 bar). Spray deposition was measured
using a quantitative method (mineral chelates). Spray coverage was assessed by the hand of a visual method using water sensitive paper. All applications were performed in the laboratory with a fully automated spray system. Spray deposits were measured at three plant levels on the top and on the bottom side of the leaves, together with off-target depositions. The use of air support improved crop penetration and deposition on the bottom side of the leaves and reduced spray deposition in the top layer at the top side of the leaves, resulting in a more uniform spray distribution over the crop canopy. The effect of air support on crop penetration was most pronounced with the standard 0° spray angle. Without air support, spray angling improved crop penetration but not the deposition at
the bottom side of the leaves.
