Agricultural Row Crop

The Value of Pesticides in Agricultural Crops in Florida
This module is based upon data presented by the Crop Life Foundation during the Florida Fertilizer and Agrichemical Association’s 2006 annual winter meeting. The cost/benefit of pesticides to many major agricultural commodities is discussed and presented using Florida agricultural commodities.

Agricultural Row Crop Pest Control – Application Equipment
The components of spray equipment and granular applicators commonly used in agricultural row crop settings are discussed. A brief overview of chemigation is presented.
CEUs: 1

Agricultural Application Equipment Calibration
Calibration, applying the correct amount of pesticide to the site, is made easy by this module. The learner will practically work on nozzle selection using commercial dealer literature. Calibration calculations focus primarily on spray- and granule-delivery equipment used in the agricultural row crop setting.
