||The pesticide spraying equipment described is characterised by a "crop tilter" and a flat fan nozzle which generates large drops. Both features help to reduce dispersion of pesticides by the wind and thus environmental pollution. For pesticide application to fruit trees and vines a spraying facility is described which encloses the part of the plant to be sprayed and recycles pesticide run-off caught in it.
