Research Institution
NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Agricultural spray equipment operators typically cannot monitor all nozzles along the boom. Clogged or malfunctioning nozzles produce undesirable spraying results. This project is designed to lead directly to a useful product, namely, a single-nozzle monitoring unit for agricultural spray applications. The monitoring capabilities of the system will allow more efficient, reliable and safe agrochemical application and less driver fatigue.
