Chemical Application Information

Pesticides may be applied to the soil or the plant canopy by various methods. Soil-applied chemicals may be for weed, insect and nematode control. Plant-applied chemicals are for controlling insects and/or pathogens, or for suppressing or enhancing growth. These practices may take place before the seed is placed in the ground until or after the harvest of various agricultural products. A variety of equipment and methods is needed to meet the diverse pesticide application requirements of these crops, and careful adjustment must be made for each type of application to produce the desired results.

This website provides information and resources for types and set-up of equipment to apply agricultural chemicals.
