A team of researchers is developing a Smart Sprayer, which will be demonstrated at 10 a.m. Thursday, Aug. 14 at Hans Nelson and Sons Nursery, 31020 S.E. Waybill Road, Boring, Oregon. The sprayer, which is still being tested, uses a laser to detect the height, width and volume of the plants in a row. With this information, it can adjust the application of chemical sprays, thereby saving on input costs. The team includes researchers from Oregon State University, the USDA Agricultural Research Service, Ohio State University and the University of Tennessee. The demonstration is free and open to the public. For details, download the flyer (PDF).
