A small but essential set of tools for protecting the crops during the Winter. Frost/freeze damage can cause severe crop losses. The most severe damage usually occurs when a freeze or frost takes place after buds and blossoms have begun to open. A severe freeze can also damage fruit which is already set, damage foliage, and can even kill limbs or entire plants. Overhead sprinkler irrigation is often used to minimize the effects of freezing temperatures.
Backpack sprayers are used by vineyards to spray nutrients and chemicals to grow their crops. Sprayers are equipped with an adjustable, flat spray, hollow cone and jet stream nozzle to accommodate virtually every spraying need. Built-in strainers, screens and filters help keep debris out of nozzles. Pressure can be regulated to 15, 30, 45 or 60 psi by means of a built-in pressure regulating valve. Unbreakable wands prevent damage common to brass and brittle plastic wands. Seals, gaskets and O-rings provide excellent chemical resistance and durability.
