10 October: Mildura spray application workshop

 Effective spray application remains critical in a successful vineyard to ensure pests and disease are managed. 

Agriculture Victoria will host New Zealand spray expert David Manktelow and the ATGA’s Alison MacGregor as they explore how to optimise spray application in table grapes. 

David and Alison will focus on tailoring equipment to target specific pests (in particular, mealybug and mites) and allowing for different growth stages. 

They will consider how to manipulate droplets and air to improve and maximise deposits. 

A vineyard session will follow with field assessments, where they will set up and assess different equipment and approaches. 

The session will also explore innovations in spray technology, and an introduction to the Agriculture Victoria SmartFarm’s new sprayer – featuring pulse-width modulation – by research scientist Marica Mazza.
