This is a two-part competition

  • The first part is a written test on sprayer calibration. Participants complete an exam that covers various aspects of sprayer calibration, application, and equipment.
  • The second part is a hands-on event in which the participant must calibrate a CO2-backpack sprayer. The goal is to correctly assemble the research plot sprayer, select the correct nozzles and other components, and properly calibrate the sprayer to get a desired output.
