Datastar Fruit Disease Mitigation

DCA produces control data that are directly useable by the applicator to control ground sprayer mechanisms on a tree-for-tree basis (e.g. application of foliar nutrients to stressed citrus trees).

Fruit Disease Mitigation

Typical applications of DCA supplied prescriptions are applied using a 1,000 gallon tractor-operated sprayer with left & right sprayer sections that are solenoid controlled.  The power take-off (PTO) driven axial flow fan can reach the entire citrus tree from one side or the other by using the DSI attributes which include tree area and diameter.  Using a GPS antennae located on the sprayer and a laptop with DCA prescriptions, six to twelve (6-12) applications per year of selected chemicals is a proven approach.
